Engine trouble hinted at in Nelson crash DE KALB, Texas (AP) — The DC-3 that crashed and killed singer Rick Nelson and six others had engine trouble before its last flight, and one member of Nelson's band had talked of quitting because he didn't trust the plane, friends and relatives said Wednesday. Nelson, 45, who became known to millions of Americans as a youngster on his family's "Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet" TV series, was flying with his fiancee and five members of his band from Alabama to Dallas for a New Year's Eve concert when the plane crashed near this northeast Texas town. The pilot and co-pilot survived and were hospitalized with burns, with the pilot in fair condtion and the copilot critical. National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Jim Burnett said Wednesday investigators were unsure if the fire that consumed the wreckage was ignited before the plane clipped power lines and crashed into a pasture. Witnesses reported smoke trailing from the plane. "In aviation, smoke does not always indicate fire," Burnett said at a news conference. Nelson and his band had appeared Monday at PJ's Lounge in Guntersville, Ala., and took off Tuesday afternoon. Lynn Upton, wife of PJ's co-owner Pat Upton, a former member of Nelson's Stone Canyon band, said Nelson had trouble with the DC-3 on his flight from Orlando, Fla., to Guntersville. The trouble reappeared Tuesday. "They were having trouble with the left engine. It wouldn't crank over," Upton said. "Everyone was concerned over this one engine. Pat asked that they stay and fly out of Huntsville (on a commercial flight)." Upton said the pilots "worked on the engine and felt better about it. Rick felt he had to be there (Dallas) for the show." Burnett said he could not confirm that the plane had mechanical trouble. FAA flight service in Anniston, Ala., said the plane was registered to Century Equipment Co. of Los Angeles. Telephone calls to the company on Wednesday went unanswered. , Laurel Barzie, sister-in-law of band member Andy Chapin, 30, who died in the crash, said from Los Angeles that the DC-3 had developed a problem with one of its engines about a month ago and that Chapin was afraid to fly in it. "He didn't want to go on that airplane," she told the Dallas Morning News. "He complained and complained for months. He was going to quit the job because he didn't want to go on that plane." Barzie said Chapin had told her "that it was a bad plane. He didn't trust it. He always talked to my husband about it, that he didn't trust the airplane, that all the guys felt the same, in the band." Burnett said authorities had not been able to talk to either of the two survivors. Helicopter pilot Don Ruggles said Tuesday he heard a radio distress call which said the plane was having difficulty. "He said smoke was filling the cockpit," Ruggles said. "I watched the airplane descend to a very low altitude, and about 500 feet above the ground we started noticing smoke trailing the airplane." "It was on fire when it came over me," said farmer Don Lewis. "Smoke was just belching out of the right side." The accident occurred on the last day of the deadliest year ever for commercial aviation in which almost 2,000 people died. It also was the 50th anniversary of the debut of the DC-3, a twin-engine Rick Nelson and his fiance, Helen Blair, pictured here October, were killed Tuesday in a plane crash. in plane used for early passenger flights and World War II transport that has survived in private and regional airline service around the world. Nelson's manager, Oscar Arslanian, said in Los Angeles that funeral arrangements had not yet been completed. His older brother, David, was flying to Texas on Wednesday, but his mother, Harriet, was not. Nelson's father, Ozzie, died of cancer in 1975. In Los Angeles, David Levine, president of the Promark production company, urged 103 television stations not to show a one-hour syndicated special that was to begin broadcast- ing Wednesday night entitled "Ricky Nelson and Fats Domino Live." He said Harriet Nelson had asked Promark to try to stop the show. '. Besides Nelson and Chapin, the dead were identified as Nelson's fiancee, Helen Blair, 27; band members Bobby Neal, 38, Patrick Woodward, 35, Rick Intveld, 22, and Clark Russell, 35, who was the sound man. Retired publicist Leo Zabelin, who had worked with Nelson, said 1985 was the singer's best year in two decades. "He was a remnant of the '60s, a holdover whose time had finally come again," Zabelin said. Inmates take 14 hostages / For your information Hospital admissions Asbury — Margaret J.

(AP) — A tire salesman bounced from United Airlines' frequent-flier program after he and his family accumulated enough bonus miles to make three round trips to the moon is suing the carrier, which claims he violated provisions of the program used to woo travelers. Howard Landau, 42, accumulated about 400,000 bonus miles in United's frequent-flier program beginning in 1981, while his wife and three grown' children each earned 250,000 to 350,000 bonus miles'. MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) — Knife-wielding inmates rioted at the West Virginia Penitentiary on Wednesday, seizing half of the maximum-security prison, taking 14 hostages and demanding to meet the governor, authorities said. State troopers in riot gear encircled the overcrowded, 120-year- old prison and officials made plans to "take back the institution," said Marshall County Sheriff Donald Bordenkircher, a former warden of the penitentiary. There were no reports of any injuries in the 5:30 p.m. uprising, Baby abandoned in 36-degree weather NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Police on Wednesday were trying to find the person who left a newborn baby wrapped in a towel on the hood of a car in front of a house in 36-degree weather New Year's Eve. The 7-pound baby, who spent the first day of 1986 in the warmth of a hospital nursery, had a temperature of 90 degrees, 9.6 degrees below normal for an infant, when she was brought in by police, said Dr. Bob Gosser, a pediatrician at Memorial Hospital. The newborn, named Holly Danielle by nurses, had a normal temperature by mid-morning, Gosser said. Doctors said she was in good condition. "The cold weather sometimes can make babies kind of shocky, but there's no evidence of any problems with her," Gosser said. Exposure probably would not have long-term ill effects on the baby's health, he said. The infant probably was born late Tuesday night, Gosser said. Police received a call about midnight from a man who said a baby had been found on a car hood outside a home, Lt. Bob Scarborough said Wednesday. Scarborough described the neighborhood as fairly affluent. Officer Phillip Tackett put the girl in his jacket and drove her to Memorial Hospital. The dark-haired Holly Danielle yawned and opened her eyes when picked up by Fran Nichols, unit supervisor of the obstetrics unit, and held up for newspaper and television cameras. "She'll make somebody's "86 happy," Ms. Nichols said. Harrison Dean, Memorial Hospital administrator, said the baby would remain in the hospital until a court placed her in a foster home. She was the second infant girl found abandoned in the Little Rock area since Christmas Day. The other baby was in good condition Wednesday at Arkansas Children's Hospital in Little Rock. Doctors said Joy Noel, as nurses call her, was born about two months prematurely. She was found on Christmas in the parking lot of a coin- operated laundry in Little Rock. which involved up to 200 of the 750 inmates at the prison, said Sgt. Larry Henry, a spokesman for the state police. "You quit treating us like dogs and this wouldn't happen," one inmate shouted at police beyond the prison wall. "We want better living conditions, better facilities and better medical conditions. We don't want this any more than you do." A force of about 100 state troopers and prison guards, many carrying gas masks and riot batons, assembled about 9 p.m. at a museum across the street. The inmates called a television station and demanded a meeting with Gov. Arch Moore and Corrections Commissioner A.V. Dodrill to discuss their grievances, said John Domenick of WTRF-TV in Wheeling. They asked that two TV reporters attend the meeting, he said. Moore would not talk with any prisoners until the hostages were freed and all the prisoners were back in their cells, said aide Ben Bailey. The rioters had control of the main, lower floor of the prison building and were being monitored by a few corrections officers who remained inside the penitentiary at distant locations, Henry said. But Warden Jerry Hedrick said the prisoners "pretty much have the run of the place right now." "They took the first 14 hostages they could get their hands on," the warden said in an interview at the prison. The captives included 13 employees and one outside food-service worker, he said. The riot began when inmates with "jailhouse weapons" such as handmade knives took the hostages, the sheriff said. Although officials did not know Weather what triggered the uprising, Bailey said that policy changes by the warden had angered some inmates. The area around the prison was sealed off, and there was no danger to nearby residents, said William Kaemmerling, a spokesman for the Moundsville police department. A major riot took place in the prison in 1973, and in 1979,15 inmates escaped in a mass breakout that left one prisoner and one state police officer dead. In 1983, conditions in the prison were declared unconstitutional by Circuit Judge Arthur Recht because of overcrowding, and the state Corrections Department is under court order to make improvements. The prison's official capacity is 650 inmates, but Hedrick said the population was about 100 inmates above the limit on Christmas Day. Del. Thomas Knight, chairman of the state House of Delegates' committee responsible for monitoring conditions at the penitentiary, said the riot showed the inadequacy of state government response to the court decision. "We have been wrong. My committee has tried and tried and tried, but nobody cares about prisons except at times like this," Knight said. "Up until a couple of years ago, we had open sewers in the prison basement. My God, that's awful." Inmates have a class-action suit before the West Virginia Supreme Court contending that the state has failed to comply adequately with Recht's ruling. James Companion, a lawyer representing the prisoners, said few improvements have been made since the decision. "The physical and living conditions are pretty much the same. They're pretty bad," he said. (Continued from Page 1) ban on such plans while the United States contends the program is only in answer to similar Soviet research. Referring to the program, Reagan said,' 'Both the United States and the Soviet Union are doing research on the possibilities of applying new technologies to the cause of defense. If these technologies become a reality, it is my dream that, well, to one day free us all from the threat of nuclear destruction." Gorbachev did not directly mention "Star Wars," but he did say, "It is a reality of today's world that it is senseless to seek greater security for oneself through new kinds of weapons." He later added that "it is the forceful and compelling demand of life itself that we should follow the path of cutting back nuclear arsenals and keeping outer space peaceful. That is what we are negotiating about at Geneva and we would very much like those talks to be successful this year." The exchange of speeches, which contained no major policy changes, was announced last week. White House spokesman Larry Speakes said the remarks were "in the spirit of Geneva." Before the summit, U.S. officials had unsuccessfully tried to win approval for Reagan to speak via television to the Soviet people. That request was refused, but the Soviets changed their minds shortly before Christmas and offered to permit the holiday exchange of greetings. In Palm Springs, Calif., where Reagan is vacationing at the estate of former Ambassador Walter Annenberg, a White House statement said the president watched Gor- bachev's statement and welcomed it "as a continuation of our discussions in Geneva." ."
