New radar can track Stealth
WASHINGTON-The super-secret Stealth bomber, for all its
vaunted ability to evade radar detection, can be spotted by at least one
type of sophisticated radar now entering the U. S. arsenal, officials
The Pentagon has for years advertised the capabilities of the new
radar-the Over-The-Horizon-Backscatter, or OTH-B-in the course
of winning congressional approval to ring the U. S. coast with an
OTH-B network to detect airplanes and cruise missiles. 1
Indeed, the Air Force disclosed with some fanfare last month that
it had used its first OTH-B radar unit to track President Reagan's Air
Force One all the way to Iceland for his recent summit meeting.
The ability of an OTH-B system to detect Stealth aircraft,
however, is one capability about which the Pentagon and Air Force
have remained quiet.
One crack in the silence occurred this summer, when an
Australian scientist working on his country's over-the-horizon
system discussed the radar's capabilites during a public conference in
Media effectively educates
American voters, poll says
NEW YORK-When it comes to learning about candidates,
roughly the same proportion of Americans get their news from
television as from newspapers. In either case, most say they get
enough information to make informed choices, according to a
Media General-Associated Press poll.
Forty-two percent of the 1,464 adult Americans in the
nationwide telephone poll said newspapers were their prime source
of information about candidates. Thirty-nine percent said they
learned about candidates primarily from television news programs.
The rest got most of their news from a variety of sources:
magazines, radio, political advertisements, and friends.
Many of those who did not get enough information said they
wanted more unbiased background information, and they also
thought more in-depth coverage, more debates, and personal
interviews would be useful.
Cadets confined for hazing
CHARLESTON, S. C.-Five white cadets at The Citadel have
been confined to campus for the rest of the school year and will have
to march hundreds of additional hours for hazing a black freshman,
the military college said.
"There will be a lot of soul searching on the part of those five
cadets for the remainder of their tenure at The Citadel and their life,"
said Lt. Col. Ben Legare, the state school's spokesman.
The five donned sheets and towels last week, then entered the
room of a sleeping black cadet, shouting obscenities and leaving a
charred paper cross behind, Citadel officials said.
The five will have to march an additional 195 hours, or about 10
more hours a week than the three hours that most cadets march
weekly in the barracks courtyard with an eight-pound rifle, Legare
The cadets also will have to remain on campus except for legal
holidays and school vacations.
Dems hope for more seats
WASHINGTON-Democrats sounded confident while
Republicans seemed less than certain yesterday about the outcome of
their battle for control of the Senate, the rmhin prize in tomorrow's
elections to choose the 100th Congress and three dozen governors.
The candidates themselves were still scouring for support on the
final weekend of the nation's costliest midterm campaign. Voters
tuned to football games got a heavy dose of political commercials
along with the customary ones selling beer.
Both sides predicted Democrats would improve their current 253-
180 majority in the House by as many as 10 seats.
There was a similar agreement all around that Republicans, who
now hold only 16 of 50 statehouses, would gain as many as nine
Democratic chairman Paul Kirk said he would be greatly surprised
if his party doesn't win a Senate majority.
Blanchard, Lucas continue
last-minute campaigning
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.-Republican gubernatorial candidate
William Lucas stressed the historic nature of his bid to become the
nation's first elected black governor before a mostly black
congregation yesterday in Grand Rapids.
Lucas, who spoke to about 200 people at Bethel Pentecostal
Church, said he is a role model for blacks who persevere through

hard work and study.
He paraphrased the Rev. William Abney, saying, "The time has
come for us to make a statement."
Meanwhile in Ferndale, Gov. James Blanchard, speaking from
where he made his first political speech 27 years ago, told his
hometown supporters yesterday that he "must win decisively' in
tomorrow's gubernatorial election.
