f 9 Albanian emigres arrive to warm French welcome MARSEILLE, FRANCE (AP) -Hundreds of Albanian refugees sang the French national anthem to celebrate their newfound freedom as they arrived at this port city Sunday after a three-day journey from their Communist homeland. "Long live France! Long live the Albanian people!" the refugees chanted as they left the ferry Orient Star on Marseille's docks. The new arrivals are the last of thousands who boarded five ferries last week for Western Europe. The Albanians had sought refuge from the hard-line Communist regime in their homeland by fleeing to Western embassies in Tirana, the Albanian capital. Hundreds of ethnic Albanians living in France and Belgium lined the docks of Marseille Sunday to welcome the refugees, singing the traditional Albanian national anthem, "Around the Flag," as the ferry pulled into port. About 100 Red Cross doctors, nurses and other workers took charge of the 544 refugees, including 63 children, after they left the ferry to begin a new life. Bernard Kouchner, secretary of state for humanitarian action, escorted the Albanians to special trains bound for three reception centers near Paris and one in southwest France At the centers, fresh clothes, Marcos faces another fraud investigation NEW YORK, N.Y. (AP) - Two weeks after a federal jury acquitted her of fraud, Imelda Marcos has been ordered by the U.S. Justice Department to face grand jury questioning in another criminal proceeding. Marcos said two federal agents served her Friday with a subpoena to appear in Pittsburgh on Sept. 25. The case involves a nuclear power plant the Westinghouse Electric Corp. built in the Philippines in the early 1980s, when her husband, the late Ferdinand Marcos, still was president. The current Philippines government has sued Westinghouse, alleging it built a plant that could not be operated. "They said they want me to come and bring all my documents. I don't really know what this is all about," Marcos told The Associated Press on Saturday during a party she organized to thank jurors from her trial. The subpoena, a copy of which was obtained by the AP, does not indicate whether Marcos is a target of the investigation. A source close to Marcos, asking not to be identified, said she "definitely will appear" as ordered unless the government advises her that she is a target of the inquiry, in which case she would refuse. U.S. Attorney Thomas Corbett Jr. of Pittsburgh declined to comment, Crash a year old, but DC-10 safety controversy lives on PMll 2 Continued from Page 1A to survive engine explosions and other major structural damage. These wide-body aircraft require hydraulic systems to move their flaps, ailerons and other control surfaces because "the forces are so great that you can't do it physically," says FAA spokesman Fred Farrar in Washington, D.C. The government and industry task force hasn't finished its work. The FAA recently ordered airlines with DC-lOs to install the McDonnell Douglas hydraulic modifications, which include a shutoff valve on a hydraulic fluid supply line. United Airlines already has installed the improvements on 30 of its fleet of 55 DC-10 aircraft, says United spokes man Robert Doughty. All DC-lOs must be modified by July 20, 1991. Passenger advocate Livingston says hydraulic improvements engineered by McDonnell Douglas amount to "modest corrections" for the DC-10. He still is concerned that there isn't enough protection for the three hydraulic fluid lines and that the lines converge too closely in some areas of the aircraft Some large jets have four hydraulic lines, he said. McDonnell Douglas officials point out that their plane's design meets FAA requirements, and they say that planes with four hydraulic lines, such as Lockheed's L-1011, are no better or worse than the DC-10. They also note that Flight 232's hydraulic lines were damaged in areas of the plane's horizontal stabilizer, a part of the tail, where the hydraulic lines were widely separated. Harold Marthinsen, director of accident investigation for the Air Line Pilots Association, has protested the FAA's method of fixing the DC-10. He says DC-10s need an independent backup system for flight controls. Furthermore, "we're a little skeptical that the modifications will allow for a safe landing" when a plane's hydraulics have been damaged, Marthinsen says. The new system has been tested only at altitude and with a flight simulator, and it has not faced soap and toothpaste awaited the refugees. They will be given medical examinations, French lessons and instruction in the basics of the French social security system. The refugees also will be given temporary residence permits and have the right to apply for political asylum. Earlier Sunday, another 76 Albanians flashed the "V" for victory sign when they arrived in Turkey on a government-sponsored flight from Tirana. Another 4,500 Albanians landed in Brindisi, Italy. The first of more than 3,000 Albanians bound for West Germany on three chartered trains arrived Saturday in Heidelberg. In Basel, Switzer land, the refugees were sent on smaller trains to 14 West German cit ies. Also Saturday, 56 Albanians from the Polish Embassy in Tirana were flown to Warsaw. Another 39 who sought refuge in the Hungarian Em bassy were flown to Budapest. Five others from the Bulgarian Embassy traveled to Sofia. On Saturday night, two Albanians fled to Yugoslavia, raising to 15 the number of Albanians who have illegally crossed the Yugoslav border in the past week, the state Tanjug news agency reported. Imelda Marcos Was served a subpoena citing the secrecy of grand jury pro ceedings. The subpoena, dated July 11 by the U.S. District Court in Pittsburgh, in structed Marcos to bring documents relating directly or indirectly to the payment of commissions or anything of value by Westinghouse or Burns & Roe Inc. to the Marcoses or their agents since Jan. 1, 1973. Burns & Roe, an engineering firm, was a main subcontractor on the Philippines project. In Pittsburgh, Westinghouse spokesman Paul Jones said the subpoena served on Marcos may bear some relation to a lawsuit filed by the government of Philippine President Corazon Aquino. the problems that can occur during an actual landing, he says. The National Transportation Safety Board, which is investigating the Sioux City crash, won't issue a final report on its probable cause until after Labor Day, says safety board spokesman Ted Lopatkiewicz. Most fact-gathering is finished, but this probe is taking longer than investigations into other crashes, Lopatkiewicz said. One reason is that the disk that held the DC-10 engine's fan blades wasn't recovered from a farm field until three months after the crash. "Furthermore, we have never had an accident where all of the hydraulic systems have been destroyed," Lopatkiewicz said. r. : Home Improvement o Home Equity o Residential Construction o Commercial Real Estate SA VIMS LOANASSOCIA ALMANAC OBITUARIES IRVIN BENTLER Tht Rtflistaft Iowa Naws Service EARLHAM, IA. - Irvin Bentler, 70, of Earlham died of a heart ailment Saturday at Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines.
