Volcanic I

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -
Redoubt Volcano's tantrums have
not been as destructive as Mount St
Helens's, but they have interrupted
oil production and international
travel and closed schools for thou-
sands of youngsters.
Earlier this week, 10,000 face
masks were distributed to residents
of the central Kenai Peninsula wor-
ried about inhaling the fine volcanic
ash - gritty, highly abrasive bits of
pulverized lava - that the volcano
has blown as high as eight miles
into the atmosphere.
Redoubt's last eruption was
"The quake activity indicates the
volcano is relatively quiet for now
and it does not appear to be building
toward stronger eruptive activity,"
geologist Steve Brantley of the
Alaska Volcano Observatory said
Mount St. Helens in Washington
state erupted explosively in May
1980, levelling hundreds of square
miles of forest and blowing ash so
high into the atmosphere it circled
the glove. The blast killed 57 people
and caused over $3 billion in dam-
Redoubt, which roared back to
life Dec. 14 after 25 years of quiet,
is not only smaller but also more
remote, sitting 115 miles southwest
of Anchorage.
But it still has the power to dis-
rupt commerce and everyday life.

And the walls came tumbling down
Panamanian President Guillermo Endara slams a sledgehammer against
a wall of the Comandancia building in Panama City yesterday. Endara
wielded the hammer to mark the start of the destruction of the former
headquarters of the Panamanian DefensetForces, which was heavily
damaged in the American invasion.

" Many scholarships are given to students based on their academic interests,
career plans, family heritage and place of residence.
" There's money available for students who have been newspaper carriers,
grocery clerks, cheerleaders, non-smokers.. .etc.

Harrison said Swain could be a
candidate for the permanent position
if she chooses to submit her name.
There has been no date set to be-
gin a search for a permanent vice
president, though Harrison said the
search is not likely to begin for an-
other year or year and a half.

funds for
Michigan counties are among 126
nationally that no longer meet the
criteria to receive funding under a
federal program that aids the poor
and homeless, officials said yester-
Barry, Houghton, Jackson, Mar-
quette, Mason and Monroe counties
will not receive direct grants from
the Emergency Food and Shelter Na-
tional Board program this year.
Forty-two of Michigan's 83
counties and the city of Detroit qual-
ify for the grants under criteria based
on unemployment and poverty rates,
which fluctuate from year to year.
The six non-qualifiers might still
receive some funding from a second
source of money controlled by a
state board, but probably not as
much as they would have gotten
through direct grants.
"It's going to be a serious prob-
lem," said Steve Loftus, a United
Fund representative in charge of ac-
counting for the program in Barry
County. "We've been depending on
this. We're a small, rural county."
The program was started in 1983
and reauthorized in 1987 as part of a
federal package to assist the home-
less, said assistant director Sharon
Bailey. It provides grants to help the
poor pay for food, shelter and utility
In each county or city, the money
is distributed by boards that include
representatives of local government,
churches and civic groups such as
the Red Cross, Salvation Army and
United Fund.
Jerry Jackovac, executive director
of the Baraga-Houghton-Keweenaw
Community Action Agency, said,
"We're hurting, believe me. This
area is as needy as it's ever been."
He said the criteria for the grants
were flawed, particularly because of
their heavy reliance on joblessness

GM may build in Hungary
DETROIT - General Motors Corp. is in the late stages of negotia-
tions with the Hungarian government about setting up a manufacturing
facility in the Eastern European nation, a General Motors spokesman said
John Pekarek said only that the GM-Hungarian talks were in "advanced
stages" and that a decision could be reached soon.
If a deal was struck, it would be the first such agreement between a
U.S. automaker and an Eastern European government stemming from the
speedy political and economic liberalization in the region.
On Tuesday, Suzuki Motor Co. of Japan announced it would set up a
$139.8-million assembly plant near Budapest, the Hungarian capital, to
produce Suzuki Swift subcompact cars beginning in 1992.
Pekarek provided no details about the GM negotiations.
Soldiers occupying China
BEIJING - China's army will maintain a strong presence "to
safeguard public security" in the Beijing area following the lifting of
martial law, the government's top spokesman said yesterday.
Up to 1,000 troops marched across Tiananmen Square yesterday
morning, hours after seven months of martial law officially ended in the
"I thought martial law was over," said one of the several thousand
people on the 100-acre square as he watched the military procession.
The government spokesman, Yuan Mu, told a news conference there
was a "small increase" in troop levels in Beijing and its suburbs, but he
gave no indication of how many soldiers would be stationed around the
Yuan said the military presence was necessary to "safeguard public
Bush assails Moynihan plan
WASHINGTON - The Bush administration found itself arguing
against a politically appealing tax cut yesterday as it denounced a proposed
rollback of-Social Security payroll taxes as a Democratic ploy to "fiddle
around" with the nation's retirement system.
Presidential press secretary Marlin Fitzwater said the administration
opposes a plan by Sen. Daniel Moynihan (D-NY) to repeal this year's
Social Security tax hike and to further cut the rate next year.
Bush's "no-new-taxes" philosophy does not apply to the Social Secu-
rity tax increases, which were scheduled to take place anyway, administra-
tion officials said.
Moynihan's plan, which is fast gaining support from business and
conservative groups, would cancel the Jan. 1 increase that raised the So,
cial Security tax rate to 7.65 percent from 7.51 percent. Moynihan's pro-
posal would then lower the rate even further, to 6.55 percent, on Jan. 1,
Ousted leader likely to face
charges for abuse of power
SOFIA, Bulgaria - Ousted Communist leader Todor Zhivkov is
likely to face charges of abuse of power, fraud-and violating human rights,
a member of parliamentary commission said yesterday.
The inquiry might stop short, however, of unearthing irregularities by
Communists still in power, said Petar Beron, a commission member and
pro-democracy activist.
"It's not and easy job," Beron, because some of Zhivkov's associates
"are still very much at large."
He said the commission was also looking into "the drainage of public
money" by Zhivkov, the hard-liner who rules Bulgaria for 35 years until
his ouster Nov. 10
Beron said Zhivkov had siphoned millions from state-run foundations
promoting arts and education to help build luxurious residences around the
