of about 100, that cocaine "came to
rule my life."
"All drugs can be addicting," said
Ray. "It (alcohol) is just as bad as

Bush announces candidacy
HOUSTON - Vice President George Bush officially began a "last
hurrah" quest for the presidency, yesterday, trying to become the first
person in over 150 years to win the White House while serving in the
No. 2 job.
Returning to his hometown to formally kick off his second cam-
paign for the republican nomination, Bush told hundreds of cheering
supporters that the key issue in 1988 will be who should follow Ron-
ald Reagan in the Oval Office.
"For seven years now, I have been with a president, and I have seen
what crosses the big desk," Bush said. "And who should sit at that
desk? I am that man."
Bush, surrounded by his wife, Barbara, and other members of his
family, said, "I mean to run hard, to fight hard, to stand on the issues.
I mean to win."
Iraq attacks Greek tanker
MANAMA, Bahrain - Iraqi warplanes raided a Greek-owned ship,
yesterday, killing at least one crew member in their ninth attack in a
week on tankers either leased by Iran or trading with it.
In Iran, the leader of that country's Revolutionary Guards said Iran
now produces 70 percent of its own equipment for the 7-year-old war
with Iraq, including advanced wire-guided missiles and multiple rocket
Four Kuwaiti tankers, flying the American flag and under U.S. Navy
escort, meanwhile were reported to have reached Bahrain. The island
sheikdom is the halfway point on the 550-mile route from the Persian
Gulf entrance at the Strait of Hormuz to Kuwait, Iraq's western neigh-
bor at the head of the gulf.
In Beirut, the capital of Lebanon, a pro-Iranian group of Iraqi Kurds
said it kidnapped three Italian engineers in northern Iraq and demanded
Italy withdraw its warships from the gulf.
MIT AIDS researcher wins
Nobel Prize in medicine
STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Susumu Tonegawa, a Japanese re-
searcher working in the United States, won the Nobel Prize in
medicine, yesterday, for discovering how the body makes millions of
kinds of antibodies to fight disease.
His findings could help improve vaccines and make organ
transplants safer, said the Nobel Assembly of the Karolinska Institute,
which awards the prize.
Hans Wigzell of the institute said Tonegawa's research a'lso may be
significant in fighting such diseases as acquired immune deficiency
syndrome, or AIDS, which destroys the body's immune system.
Alf Landon dies at age 100
TOPEKA, Kansas - Alf Landon, the former Kansas governor
whose presidential hopes were swamped in Franklin Roosevelt's 1936
landslide but became the grand old man of the Grand Old Party in a
long life outside politics, died yesterday. He was 100.
Landon, the' father of Sen. Nancy Kassebaum (R-Kan.) wryly
described himself "a lawyer who never had a case, an oilman who never
made a million, and a presidential candidate who carried only Maine and
He refused to be nettled about his epic loss, and in later years gave
his grandchildren ponies named for the two states he won.
Landon was hospitalized Sept. 28 after complaining of internal pain.
He was treated for a gallstone and a mild case of bronchitis before re-
turning home Oct. 10.
Eight is not enough returns
LOS ANGELES - According to NBC officials, eight is
obviously not enough because on Sunday, they will air the reunion of
America's late 70's version of the Brady Bunch.
The program, entitled "Eight is Enough: The Reunion," will
feature all of the original cast members - even Nicholas, who is now
18 years old - except Betty Buckley who played Tom Bradford's wife,
The family, however, has now grown to 18. They group has
gathered to celebrate the 50th birthday of the senior Bradford, played by
Dick Van Patten. Theifamily now includes the eight children, six
spouses and two grandchildren.
The Bradford's, who have been on hiatus for the past six years,
must now help their father through a traumatic business crisis.

Van Patten said the idea for the reunion came when he ran into
director Harry Harris in New York. Harris had directed a third of the
episodes when the series ran on ABC from 1977 to 1981.
"Harry couldn't believe the show was still so popular. He asked me
if I would do a reunion show. I said of course I would," Van Patten
