HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A plan-
ned entry into the damp, radiation-
soaked building housing a damaged
reactor at the Three Mile Island
nuclear power plant had to be cancelled
last night because of a stuck door, of-
ficials said.
"It's been aborted," said John
Collins, on-site chief for the Nuclear
Regulatory Commission.
A DOOR leading to the containment
building jammed and two volunteer
engineers were unable to open it despite

spokesman for Metropolitan Edison
Co., the plant operator.

No one has entered the building since
it was severely contaminated in the
nation's worst commercial nuclear
power accident nearly 14 months ago.
PLANS HAD called for William
Behrle and Michael Benson to stay in-
side the building 14 minutes, measuring
radiation levels, taking samples, and
taking pictures if possible.
Plant officials and officials of the
Nuclear Regulatory Commission had
been ready to monitor the visit via
closed circuit television and radios.
The two men, both volunteer em-

ployees of Met Ed, were equipped with
double layers of protective clothing and

.Farhang said last month's failed
hostage rescue mission in which eight
American commandos were killed "in-
creased the hostage crisis" and made a
settlement more difficult. The hostages
have since been reported scattered in 17
Iranian cities to foil a second American
rescue effort.
But Secretary of State Edmund
Muskie said in Washington the curr nt
Carter administration strategy to free
the hostages is to couple pressure from
economic sanctions with "intense pur-
suit of diplomatic initiatives."
