Spy trials and executions are not always reported by the Soviet
press, and when they are, the reports sometimes come long after the
trials take place.
Tass described Tolkachev as "a staff worker of a Moscow research

Embassy personnel," Tass said.

to switch to natural gas
LANSING - Consumers Power Co. got a green light from the
state yesterday to convert its shelved Midland nuclear plant to burn
natural gas as long as the utility doesn't spend ratepayer money on the
A Consumers spokesman called the 3-0 decision by the Michigan
Public Service Commission "excellent news" and predicted the plant
will produce electricity by 1989.
"It will allow us to move ahead," said Paul Knopick of the Jackson-
based utility. "We have already said we won't spend ratepayer funds."
"The major regulatory hurdles for this plant are over," he declared.
The Public Service Commission's decision came little more than a
month after Consumers and Dow Chemical Co. announced they would
agreed on a joint effort to convert and complete the $4 billion plant.
Consumers is expected to keep 49 percent of the plant, with Dow and
other investors owing the remainder.
Honeywell leaves S. Africa
MINNEAPOLIS - Honeywell Inc. has become the third major
U.S. corporation this week to decide to sell its operations in South
Africa, the Minneapolis Star and Tribune reported yesterday.
The decision was made Tuesday at a Honeywell board meeting in
Scotland, the newspaper reported. Negotiations for the sale are in their
final stages, but a definitive agreement has not been reached, it said.
The decision was confirmed by Elizabeth Bailey, a board member and
a dean at Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh, the newspaper said.
Bailey said the board decided to sell the subsidiary to a South African
company, but she could not recall its name.
Other Honeywell officials, including Chairman Edson Spencer,
declined to discuss the matter.
Honeywell's South Africa subsidiary employs about 159, 49 of
whom are black.
General Motors Corp. announced Monday and IBM Corp. Tuesday
that they planned to sell their South African subsidiaries.
Surgeon general advocates
AIDS prevention measures

surgeon general counseled Americans yesterday to disdain "freewheeling

Dr. C. Everett Koop, releasing a report on the increasing problem of
acquired immune deficiency syndrome, said the disease already has killed
almost 15,000 people. He said the figure will increase 12-fold in
another five years.
Because an estimated 1.5 million people are infected with the virus,
and because these people are able to spread the virus to others, each
individual must take steps to avoid the disease, Koop told a news
"Clearly this disease, which strikes men and women, children and'
adults, people of all races, must be stopped," he said.
New U.S. gold coin sells out
NEW YORK-The new U.S. gold coin, the American Eagle, has
proved so popular since it went on sale three days ago that the United
States Mint has temporarily run out of them.
The 800,000 coins offered by the Mint have been snapped up and the
West Point Depository, where they are minted, is working seven days a
week, three shifts a day, to catch up with the demand, The New York
Times reported in yesterday's editions.
The Eagles, the first investment-grade bullion coins minted by the
United States in more than 50 years, are selling out, one analyst said,
because of the strong flag-waving spirit associated with them.
"When people buy an American Eagle, they believe they are
supporting the United States," said Andrew Jarecki, director of coin
marketing at Maccotta Metals, a large bullion dealer that is an
authorized purchaser of coins.
