WASHINGTON (AP) - First
lady Nancy Reagan took a tumble
from the stage but was unhurt
during a concert by pianist Vladimir
Uorowitz at the White House
President Reagan, after deter -
mining that his wife was all right,
seized the occasion for a quip.
The incident occurred after
JNorowitz's program as the president
-The first lady apparently nudged
her chair too close to the edge of
the stage while smoothing her
skirt. As the audience gasped, Mrs.
Reagan's chair fell into a flower
box, which borders the two-riser
stage, and then onto the carpeted
The first lady promptly rose,
assured Reagan and others that she
was unhurt, and resumed her seat to
applause from the crowd of about
200 in the White House East
"Honey," said Reagan, "I told
you to do that only if I didn't get
Horowitz, who was still sitting
on stage, put his arm around the
first lady and hugged her during the
rest of the president's remarks.
This Soviet nuclear-powered submarine caught fire Friday, according to the Pentagon. The submarine
carrying ballistic missiles was photographed, Saturday, 480 miles northeast of Bermuda by a U.S. Navy sur-
veillance aircraft. A hatch at center appears to be damaged from the fire.

Bermuda. The announcement said
three people were killed but there
was no danger of nuclear explosion
or radiation contamination.
The Pentagon official said it
appeared most of the crew on the
sub, which normally carries 120
people, had been moved.
"We know they have taken a lot
of them off, but we don't have a
precise number," the source said.
The ship is a Yankee-class sub-
marine, which according to the
Jane's Fighting Ships is an old-
class submarine that first appeared
in the mid-1960s, capable of
carrying 16 missiles. Each ship
has two nuclear reactors to drive
two steam turbines.
Secretary of State George
Shultz, appearing on ABC's "This
Week with David Brinkley," said
the information received from U.S.
planes flying overhead indicates that
"there's no additional radioactivity
in the atmosphere."
Tests to determine whether any
radioactivity is in the water have
not been concluded, according to
Michael Armacost, the under
secretary of state for political affairs
who appeared on NBC's "Meet the
Armacost said there was a report
that at one point the sub "had been
under way at a very slow speed
under its own power, perhaps
auxiliary diesel power." But "other
difficulties apparently developed,"
or the sub "had been stopped
briefly," he said.
Sen. Sam Nunn of Georgia, the
ranking Democrat on the Senate
Armed Services Committee, said,
"The chances of any kind of nuclear
detonation are very, very low."

fraternities and sororities in the

During a rush party this year,
Hughes said, she called the
fraternity and asked that the music
be turned down, but she was
answered with a string of

What? Three hours of uninterrupted work.
"I definitely don't want to see
them thrown out of the house," she
said. "I would just like them to
comply with the laws, especially
concerning noise and alcohol in
"WHAT THEY do in their
own house is their business, but
when it comes into our yards, it's
ours," Hughes said.
Neighbors say people partying at
the SAM house have been urinating
and throwing trash on neighbors'
lawns, playing music toogloudly,
and shouting obscenities.
"Everyone coming from the house
sounds like Eddie Murphy," Hughes
In addition, neighbors say they
have seen high school students
intoxicated at SAM parties.
"IN THE last year we've tried
to make progress with the
neighbors," he said. "We were
disappointed that they felt they had
to go to the University instead of
speaking to us, but we sympathize
with them and we understand why
they did it. We wish it hadn't
gotten to that point."
Easthope told fraternity members
to "start acting like responsible
citizens" or the University would
take "extreme measures" .'against
Fraternity members outlined a
plan to quell the complaints by
banning open parties, cleaning up
the area around the house, and
forming a committee to meet with
the neighbors. The Office of
Student Services will review the
plan by Wednesday and decide what
action it will take.
Jo Rumsey, Assistant Director
of Housing Information, said she is
distressed by the situation. "They
have caused problems in the past
and have been very time consuming
for our office and the community,"
she said. The Sammies have caused
more complaints than any other
house in the Greek system,
"Lots of time, energy, and care
have been spent towards an
unfortunate wasted effort. I have
worked with SAMs for years and
the educational approach hasn't
worked yet," Rumsey said.
Ernie Robinson, a student who
was pictured on the cover of
Friday's Weekend Magazine, is a
member of Kappa Alpha Psi
Fraternity. The photo caption on
the cover incorrectly identified the
name of the fraternity.

De Lorean faces trial today
DETROIT - Former auto entrepreneur John De Lorean faces trial
today on federal charges that he bilked investors in his failed sports-car
company of $8.9 million in 1978 and 1979.
De Lorean pleaded innocent to the charges at his arraignment in
September 1985. He has said in interviews the money was a legitimate
loan and has alleged that prosecutors were trying to frame him.
Officials of the U.S. District Court in Detroit estimate the trial,
whose start was delayed from November, will last about six weeks.
They expect jury selection to take two weeks.
A grand jury indictment last year accused De Lorean of siphoning the
money from De Lorean Research Limited Partnership, a company
created to fund technological development of the advanced sports car,
through various European banks into his own accounts.
The indictment alleged De Lorean spent more than $8 million of the
money to repay loans and $28,000 to buy a gold ring and gold bracelet.
Summit ball awaits accord
REYJAVIK, Iceland - Icelandic officials yesterday made known
their growing impatience with the Soviets for failing to say if they
accept the hall proposed for the Reagan-Gorbachev meeting in
The officials said that with Iceland's meager technical resources '

Moscow accepts the Hofdi, a Reykjavik bayside house, as the meeting
A Soviet spokesman said he was aware of this impatience and hoped
an answer would be forthcoming by today.
The Icelandic officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said
the Soviets were asked to decide three days ago whether the Hofdi suits
them. With the summit less than a week away, it would be extremely
difficult to come up with an alternative venue, they said.
The Hofdi, a picturesque two-story building in white clapboard,
serves as the mayor's banquet hall and was sealed off to the public last

in Moscow last year, but did not go to the CIA or the embassy's

Divorce, abortion societal
diseases, Pope says at Mass
LYON, France-Pope John Paul pursued his attacks on abortion and
divorce during a rural Mass yesterday, calling them signs of sickness in
society, but his message evoked a tepid response from the audience.
On his second day of a four-day visit to France, the leader of the
world's 800 million Roman Catholics was surrounded by heavy
security as he traversed the countryside before returning to Lyon late':
Police carefully scrutinized the crowds at the Mass in the Burgandy
town of Paray-Le-Monial and during an earlier visit to a small
ecumenical community called Taize.
At Taize, pathways used for contemplative walks were thick with'
gendarmes. A belltower was converted into a watchtower -with
sharpshooters at the ready. Security men peered out from neighboring
corn fields and cow pastures.
John Paul said at the Mass that rising abortion and divorce rates were
signs that modern civilization is developing a "heart of stone."
Sun shines on Ann Arbor
The sun peaked form behind clouds in drenched southern Lower
Michigan yesterday as residents mopped up from weekend flooding, but
more rain-and perhaps snow-could fall this weekend.
Most Michigan rivers subsided yesterday, but the Saginaw River was,
expected to crest again tomorrow due to runoff from Saturdaay's rain,

High winds whipped up waters along Great Lakes shorelines
Saturday, but the winds shifted from the northeast Saturday night,
easing flooding, Charson said.d
Swollen rivers had contributed to high water levels in lakes Huron,
Erie, and St. Clair, but flood warnings had been lifted.
Afternoon and evening rain showers expected in Michigan yesterday
would make it the 26th consecutive day of rain.
Cooler temperatures meant light snow showers might dust the
