WASHINGTON (AP) - Rep.
Carl Pursell (R-Plymouth) is one of
the "most dangerous anti-environ-
mental legislators" seeking re-
election this year, a lobbying group
pushing environmental issues said
In drafting the list, Environmental
Action considered 14 votes in the
House and 14 votes in the Senate. It
also considered acceptance of cam-
paign contributions from organiza-
tions Environmental Action believes
are anti-environment, power in the
members' house of Congress, the
extent of environmental problems in
the members' district, and leadership
in anti-environmental fights.
The congressmember's staff said
yesterday, however, that Environ-
mental Action misrepresented Rep.
Carl Pursell's record.

Flames force firefightersy
to close Old Faithful 4
YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. - Firefighter
yesterday for the first time closed all but a small piece of the oldes
national park, devastated by fires that surrounded Old Faithful and charred,
more than one million acres.
Although federal officials have called this the worst fire season in 30
years, no fatalities have been directly attributed to the blazes, which hav.
charred 3.65 million acres, an area larger than Connecticut.
President Reagan is sending a Cabinet-level team to the West to se
what additional federal help is needed in fighting fires, and the White
House said the number of troops on the fire line is likely to be increased.,
So far, about 2,500 military personnel are fighting fires.
Most of the 2.2 million-acre park was closed to ensure an open pat
for fire trucks and to protect tourists from the roaring flames.
Judge hears JOA case
WASHINGTON - A federal judge was confronted yesterday with
conflicting arguments over whether to let Detroit's daily newspapers
complete a partial merger approved last month by then-Attorney Generl,

commercial and business operations with the News, bought in 1986 by
The deal was temporarily blocked by court order last month to give
U.S. District Judge George Revercomb a chance to consider the legal
challenge by Michigan Citizens for an Independent Press.

newspapers set out to try to put each other out of business by cutting
advertising and circulation rates or to qualify for a joint operating agree-

shuttle since the Challenger tragedy this month.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration plans to announce
a launch date Wednesday, following a two-day flight readiness review
here. Officials have been discussing a date from Sept. 26 to 29. ,
"The enthusiasm around here is obvious," Kennedy Space Cente«

milestones, from the Challenger explosion that killed seven astronauts od
