smoking now than 25 years ago, the
percentage of Americans smoking in
the lower socio-economic and educa-

The report compared the education
levels of American smokers in the
years 1965 and 1987. The percentage
ofcollege graduates smoking dropped
from 36 percent in 1965 to 16 percent
in 1987. But the percentage of adult
smokers without high

The decreasing proportion of

Soviets deny prisoner abuse
MOSCOW - A group of activists on Wednesday rejected Soviet
claims that all political prisoners have been freed, saying 20 or 30 remain
in special psychiatric hospitals.
To support their claim, the activists held a news conference and named
three people they say are political prisoners held in psychiatric hospitals.
Two other men at the news conference said they were political prisoners
released in the past six months.
President Mikhail Gorbachev told the United Nations last month,
"there are no persons convicted for their political or religious beliefs in
places of confinement" in the Soviet Union.
The U.S. State Department has credited the Soviets with "significant
progress" in its treatment of political prisoners.
Drug testing study released
WASHINGTON - A government study on drug testing by American
employers released yesterday showed only one American worker in 100
was tested for drug use last year. The survey, conducted last summer,
found that only three percent of all employers had drug testing programs.
The survey also found that only four percent of these employers
without drug testing programs will consider testing within the next year.
Of the companies surveyed, which collectively employ 20 percent of
American workers, seven percent offered some type of drug counseling or
other employee-assistance program. In all, 31 percent of workers were
covered by these efforts.
Of the estimated 953,000 workers tested for drug use, the survey said
that 9 percent had tested positive.
The Labor Department study, which surveyed 7,500 employers,
showed that the chance for job applicants to be tested was four times
higher than workers already on the job. Of the applicants tested, 12
percent tested positive.
Death penalty urged for
retarded murderer in Texas
WASHINGTON - Assistant Attorney General Charles Palmer told
the Supreme Court yesterday the Constitution's ban against cruel and
unusual punishment should not shield a retarded killer from execution. He
urged the justices to permit the execution of Johnny Penry, 32, whose
reasoning capacity has been described as that of a child of seven.
Penry raped and stabbed Pamela Carpenter, 22, to death on October 15,
1979, in Livingston, Texas. "He knew what he was doing," said Palmer.
Curtis Mason, representing Penry, is challenging the Texas death
penalty law instead of arguing all convicted retarded murderers should be
Penry was abused by his parents, attended school for a few days in the
first grade and spent his life in and out of mental hospitals.
The court is expected to announce its decision by July.
Pilot queried about crash
LONDON - Authorities questioned the badly injured pilot of a
crashed Boeing 737 yesterday, but revealed no clues as to why the jet's
undamaged right engine was shut down well before the crash while the
other engine burned.
The Civil Aviation Authority, meanwhile, ordered increased
inspections on 37 airplanes which have the same engine as the jet which
crashed Sunday night.
The government also ordered immediate checks of engine monitoring
systems on similar aircraft to verify that they correctly indicate right and
left, prompting speculation that a malfunctioning alarm system could
have misled the flight crew.
A statement from the Transport Department confirmed reports that the
airplane's left engine caught fire and the right engine was shut down.
Pilot Kevin Hunt told ground control the fire was in the right engine.
Investigators said much more work was needed to pinpoint the cause
of the crash, which killed 44 people and injured 82.
Da Yoopers spread U.P. fame
ISHPEMING, Mich - The telephone lines have been jammed for
weeks in a tiny town on Michigan's northern coast, as pockets of th
United States discover swampers, deer camps and people called Yoopers.
Welcome to Ishpeming, a tiny town among the pines and swamps of
Michigan's Upper Peninsula, welcome to the world of novelty music.
The songs of the group Da Yoopers, named after the people of,
Michigan's Upper Peninsula, won't show up on Billboard charts or in
record store bins, but they and others like them are flourishing in gas
stations and on radio shows across the United States.
One Da Yoopers' tune, "Second Week of Deer Camp," reached the
cult-coveted Funny Five status, topping out at No. 1 on Dr. Demento:
"It's da second week of deer camp, and all da guys are here. We drink,'
play cards and shoot da bull, but never shoot no deer. De only time we'
leave da camp is when we go for beer."
