Economists expect 1986 to be better . WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. economy, which disappointed a lot of people in 1985, is likely to perform slightly better next year, many forecasters say. The economists see 1986 as a year of moderate growth with continued mild inflation, falling interest rates and an unemployment rate stuck about where it is now — in short, a year much like the one just ending. But economists are handing out these predictions with some warning notes. For one thing, the economy is now in the fourth year of recovery from the 1981-82 recession, considered old age as recoveries normally go. Analysts now don't see the forces that normally trigger recessions, but they say the dangers of a downturn are likely to intensify in 1987. The year now ending was not kind to the forecasting profession. When it began, many economists were expecting growth to be in a range of 3.5 percent to 4 percent, a solid rate that would be strong enough to further reduce unemployment. The optimism stemmed in part from the fact that the United States was just ending its strongest growth in three decades, a torrid 6.6 percent increase in the gross national product in 1984. But 1985 turned decidedly weaker. According to preliminary estimates, the GNP grew just 2.4 percent last year, the slowest pace since the last recession. U.S. manufacturers were hampered all year by a strong dollar, which sent the country's trade deficit soaring as foreign goods poured into the country and U.S. manufacturers found their overseas markets drying up. With the dollar now on the decline, many economists express the belief that 1986 will see some rebound in growth. Information sought about burglary The Salina Police Department has announced a recent burglary as the crime of the week for Salina Crimes- toppers, a non-profit organization that pays cash rewards for information that helps solve crime. Between 9:35 p.m. Dec. 5 and 7 a.m. Dec. 6, someone pried open a door to the storage and supply room of the Green Lantern Car Wash, 120 N. Broadway. They then pried open a coin box and removed an unknown amount of money. Those who have information about this or any other crime can call Salina Crimestoppers at 825-2000. Tipsters may receive cash rewards of up to $1,000 and are not required to give their names. FROZEN FALLS — Visitors to Multnomah Falls in the Columbia River gorge east of Portland, Ore., are treated to a frozen spectacle. Search finds source of statue's copper skin By The New York Times NEW YORK — The solution to one of the Statue of Liberty's last remaining mysteries — the source of its green copper skin — has been found at the end of a trail that led from Staten Island to a defunct copper mine on a Norwegian island in the North Sea. The discovery of the mine as the source for the copper had confounded history buffs for decades and capped 20 months of detective work that involved a pair of copper tweezers, Bell Laboratories scientists, a French mining company, scattered historical records and Norwegian government officials, who now plan to make the mine into a museum. The finding is considered especially important because of the 100th anniversary dedication next July 4 of the statue, which is in the midst of a multimillion-dollar renovation. American officials, historians and others have been engaged in an effort to learn as much as possible about the distinctive national symbol, and virtually all of the other major details of the statue are known: the French workshop where it was made as a gift for the United States, the architect, the sculptor and the origin of other structural parts. The details are to be included in official histories that are planned for the anniversary. "This is a missing link in the history of the statue," said Kay Lande Selmer, a Staten Island singer and music therapist whose ancestral home is near the mine in Norway and who helped solve the mystery by bringing a sample of copper to Bell Laboratories. "It completes the puzzle, and now the people in Norway have an extra reason to be proud." The sleuthing also marks another example of an expanding craft in whjch science and technology are being used to reveal historical secrets. Increasingly, the application of modern machines and techniques is coaxing new information from museum pieces, paintings, buildings, old writings, archeological relics and historical cloth. "This is a prime example of science and history working hand in hand," said Carole Perrault, who is compiling a history of the statue for the National Park Service. As far back as 1941, Park Service officials expressed keen interest in finding the source of the statue's exterior. About the only people who had an inkling of the copper's origin, it now turns out, were some residents of Karmoy, a small, rocky island in the North Sea off Norway.

Huddlin' (Continued from Page 1) have people throwing rocks and people throwing water? At each other? We've done rappelling, we've done rock climbing, we've talked over and over and over again about safety. Do you see how throwing stuff at people on a rock like that could hurt somebody?" The two accused pleaded to a lesser crime by describing the small size of rocks and the negligible amount of water thrown. "Does it make it any less?" Chief Cheryl Leavitt said. "Does throwing little bitty rocks make it any less? ' ' It didn't, they answered. Chief John Karath asked the boys what should be done with the guilty pair. "I think you should make the people who were doing it stay down (from the rappel site,)" one of the boys said. After much discussion, the boys reached a consensus: The rock and water throwers were scratched from rappelling, as was a boy who was sent back to camp for swearing. From that, the huddle discussion shifted to a boy who admitted killing a tarantula earlier that day. "I don't think he should be able to go anywhere, 'cause if he sees another one he might kill it," one boy said. The others agreed. The boy who dispatched the spider showed his displeasure with being restricted to camp for 24 hours. "Please get that threat off your face," another boy told him. "It's not a threat." "Yes it is." "You're trying to kill me because I killed this one bug," he said with tears in his eyes. "I'm restricted from everything." "Aw, you're just mad for nothing," another boy said. Goldberg jumped in: "You were mad yesterday. Were you mad for nothing? In this situation, what would happen if we gave (him) his way? What would he get out of it? How do you get your way?" A boy answered: "By doing what you're supposed to do. By earning your responsibilities." Around the circle, heads nodded. "You're going to need to figure out something to do for (your behavior)," Leavitt told the boy who killed the spider. "Which is going to mean handling your responsibilities for what you do." The chiefs guided the huddle to a close, after giving everyone a chance to talk. There would be another chance for discussion that day. After dinner, the boys and chiefs gathered for powwow, a time set aside after the evening meal for reflecting on the day and relating the events to life at school and at home. The main topic at pow-wow was the previous day's hike: an exhausting eight-miler through the Chisos Mountain Basin. A late start that day, coupled with an unintentional detour down a wrong trail, brought the weary party into camp well after sundown. For the second night in a row, the boys had to pitch their tents in the dark. "The first night in the dark is tears and screaming, usually," Leavitt said. "They've done it before. They know they'll get them up eventually." Next: The pow-wow and what Passport attempts to teach.
