Duarte welcomed in White House
WASHINGTON (AP) -
i' President Reagan welcomed Sal-
vadoran President Jose Napoleon
Duarte to the White House yesterday
and they agreed there can be no

' without democratic rule throughout

Duarte was offered an enthusiastic
official reception as he began a state
visit and he showed his appreciation
for U.S. support by kissing a n
American flag displayed on the
White House south lawn.
After a ceremony that featured full
military honors, Reagan said peace
prospects for Central America have
been enhanced because of the
agreement Duarte and four other area
presidents signed two months ago.

have been privately critical of Duarte
for signing the peace agreement,
contending that it does not address
key questions, such as Soviet-Cuban
military ties with Nicaragua's leftist
But there was no hint of any
discrepencies between the two
countries in a day-long series of
activities that, in addition to the
welcoming ceremony, also included
an elaborate luncheon for Duarte

Shultz and a White House dinner
Reagan was effusive in his praise
for Duarte, a close ally whose coun-

of dollars in U.S. economic and mil-
itary aid over the past six years.
"El Salvador, under President
Duarte's leadership, has proven
wrong the cynics, pessimists and de-
tractors of democracy," he said.
"Under the most trying of cir-

At the conclusion of his remarks,
Duarte surprised the gathering of

the podium and walking 50 yards to
a military honor guard, where he
kissed the American flag.

Iranian boat attacks tanker
MANAMA, Banrain - An Iranian gunboat fired on a tanker yesterday,
shipping sources reported, and Iraq said its warplanes raided a ship near
Iran's main oil-export terminal in the northern Persian Gulf.
It was the second Iranian attack on a tanker in two days. Iraq's report,
if confirmed, would mark the 10th Iraqi raid on ships carrying Iranian oil
in a little more than a week.
An Iraqi communique said warplanes raided a "large naval target," the
customary term for a tanker, after dark east of the Kharg Island oil
terminal and scored an "an effective and accurate hit."
The United States reaffirmed that its warships will protect only
American-registered ships in the gulf, where Iran and Iraq have been at war
since September 1980.
Reagan still fighting for Bork
WASHINGTON - President Reagan yesterday decried the battle over
Robert Bork's Supreme Court nomination as an "ugly spectacle" of high-
pressure politics and promised to keep fighting in the face of all but
certain defeat for Bork.
"I am determined to fight right down to the last ballot on the Senate
floor," Reagan said in a brief Oval Office address.
The speech was made available to the television networks, but only
the Cable News Network carried it live, followed by a response in which
Democratic Sen. Terry Sanford of North Carolina lashed back.
Senators opposing Bork "are tired of having our integrity impugned,"
Sanford said, adding that "it is time for that corrosive dialogue to stop."
Fifty-four senators are on record against Bork, all but ensuring he will
lose when the vote is taken in the 100 member body.
Senate passes disposal bill
LANSING - The final bill in a package to govern the selection of a
low-level radioactive waste dump site in Michigan won approval yes-
terday in the Senate.
The bill, needed to comply with a federal law calling for regional
disposal sites, now joins two other Senate-passed measures in the House.
A House committee is expected to begin debating the politically
touchy issue within a couple of weeks, officials said.
"Hopefully, we'll have the bills passed by'Thanksgiving," said J. D.
Snyder, an environmental aide to Gov. James Blanchard. "We're pleased
with the outcome."
The bill passed on a vote of 28-6. The bill would establish a low-level
radioactive waste authority to choose a site for disposal of waste from
nuclear power plants, industry, universities, and research facilities.'
American chemists share
prize with French researcher
STOCKHOLM - Two Americans shared the Nobel Prize in chem-
istry with a French researcher yesterday for developing molecules that can
link up with particular other molecules, a principle now used in medical
Their work could lead to an endless supply of energy by extracting
hydrogen from water, said academy member Bo Malmstrom. It could also
give insight into crucial biological reactions.
Chemists Donald Cram of the University of California at Los An-
geles; Charles Pedersen, retired from the Massachusetts Institute of tech-
nology; and Jean-Marie Lehn of the Universite Louis Pasteur in Stras-
bourg, France, won the chemistry prize.
Each Nobel carries a cash prize of about $340,000, which is divided if
more than one laureate is named for each prize.
Will the real Don Cram
claim his Nobel Prize?
LOS ANGELES-Donald Cram hung up on the Royal Swedish
Academy of Sciences when they called at 6:10 a.m. yesterday to advise
him he'd won the Nobel Prize for chemistry.
"This has been more exciting than you realize," Cram said in a
telephone interview just a few hours later. "I'm a carpet cleaner."
"I happen to have a degree in chemistry from the University of
Southern California," he said, "although I've probably forgotten more
chemistry than I've learned."
When the real Nobel Prize winner, Donald J. Cram, 68, learned of
the mixup, he said: "That is incredible. I'm really tickled. There is
some chemistry involved in carpet cleaning, but it's a little different
than my brand."
Tord Ganelius, the secretary of the academy of sciences, admitted the
mistake and said Cram "collapsed in laughter" when told he won the
Nobel Prize. "These things have happened before. We once called a
dentist in Cambridge, Mass.," when looking for the number of an MIT
professor, Ganelius said.
