been found guilty during the first phase of causing
the pollution.
But upon announcement of the settlement, U.S.
District Judge Walter Jay Skinner disclosed that he
had ruled the first phase would have to be held again,
because of trial errors. That phase took four months
and the second was expected to take as long.
THE JUDGE said he agreed with the company's
contention that the jury had confused dates of when
the pollution occurred.
The families had charged in their 1982 suit that
trichloroethylene and tetrachlorethylene dumped by
a Grace plant after Oct. 1, 1964, contributed to the
contamination of two wells in suburban Woburn,
and that the contamination caused the death of five
children and an adult and is responsible for
leukemia in two other children.

Reagan condemns Soviets
UNITED NATIONS - President Reagan told the United Nations
yesterday that there has been movement in U.S.-Soviet negotiations
to reduce nuclear-missile arsenals, but condemned Moscow's
detention of an American reporter as "a particularly disturbing
example of Soviet transgressions against human rights."
"The world expects better," Reagan said in his fifth speech to the
United Nations.
"It expects contributions to the cause of peace that only the leaders
of the United States and the Soviet Union can make."
Reagan again demanded the release of Nicholas Daniloff, the
Moscow correspondent for U.S. News & World Report, and said the
Soviet Union "bears the responsibility for the consequences of its

S. African blacks protest
miners' memorial service
EVANDER, South Africa - About 200 black miners, shouting
union slogans and tribal chants, disrupted a company-sponsored
memorial service yesterday for 177 men killed in a mine fire last
week. "We're not going to pray with whites today. We've never
been allowed to pray with whites. We'll have our own rites," miners
Holding clubs and steel rods over their heads, they ran through
the outdoor service 10 times, drowning out sermons by white and
black preachers. Hundreds of other workers who came for the
service poured out of bleachers and chairs to join the dissidents.
After the service, they continued to race around a field near the
No. 2 shaft of Kinross gold mine until officials from the National
Union of Mineworkers calmed them down.
Girl identifies kidnappers
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Two brothers arrested in a $1.5 million
kidnapping were identified in a photo lineup by the 9-year-old
victim, who spent more than a day in a cardboard box, an FBI agent
testified Monday.
U.S. Magistrate Harvey Schlesinger ordered Peter Farrell, 37, of
Naples, and his brother Paul, 22, a second class seaman who was
AWOL from the USS Saratoga near Jacksonville, held until a
detention hearing Wednesday.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Alan Ceballos said he would urge at that
hearing that the men be held without bond.
The brothers and two other men are accused of orchestrating the
Sept. 16 abduction of Amanda Mueller, the great-great-
granddaughter of C. Frederick Mueller, who founded the C.F.
Mueller Co. pasta business in 1868. She was found Saturday.
Rain threatens Saginaw
More than 2 inches of rain fell yesterday on Michigan's Thumb
and could cause the flood-plagued Saginaw River to overflow again
and other rivers in eastern Michigan to approach flood stage,
authorities said.
Five members of an Oakland County family were critically
injured in a natural gas explosion ignited by lightning from the
thunderstorms that swept through the state early yesterday,
authorities said.
The storms knocked out power to about 13,600 electric customers
in southeastern Michigan early yesterday, officials said, adding
that no families were expected to be out of power for more than a day.
Saginaw received 2.42 inches of rain during a 24-hour period
ending yesterday morning, which pushed the Saginaw River
toward flood stage, said Gary Charson, a hydrologist with the
National Weather Service in Ann Arbor. Showers that were
expected to redevelop last night threatened to push the river to a foot
over flood stage, he said.
Robertson leaves 700 Club
to make time for campaign
DETROIT - Presidential hopeful Pat Robertson yesterday
stepped down as host of the evangelical television program that
thrust him to national prominence and sought to broaden his
message beyond the confines of religion.
"I have withdrawn as host of 'The 700 Club' effective today,"
Robertson said at a news conference before appearing before the
Economic Club of Detroit.
Robertson announced he was stepping down when asked if his

appearances on the program conflicted with federal regulations
requiring equal time on television for political candidates.
Robertson said he was turning "The 700 Club" over to co-host Ben
Kinchlow because a heavy schedule of public appearances meant he
could not devote as much time to the program as before.
Last week, Robertson announced he would seek the Republican
nomination for president if 3 million voters pledged him their
support with the next year.

Pollack asks for equality

Action programs are the best way
to balance that disparity.

POLLACK contested the

argument that there may not be

Affirmative Action will result
