Queen hands out annual honors LONDON (AP) — Queen Elizabeth II has made out her New Year honors list, giving titles to opera singer Gwyneth Jones, track star Steve Cram and the man who softened British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's image. Jones, 49, the Welsh opera singer who became one of the world's leading principal dramatic sopranos, was made a Dame of the British Empire. Cram, who set world records for the 1,500 meters, the mile and the 2,000 meters last summer, was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire.

'Hollywood'park plans snowball PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (AP) — A new theme park promoted by entertainer Dolly Parton has spawned plans for several projects, including a dude ranch, recording studio and a "Dollywood University." "It's snowballing to great proportions," said Jerry | Hanson, the city's assistant director of public works. Developers have proposed almost $65 million in I projects for Dollywood theme park and surrounding I land for the next five years, which could result in I 1,000 new jobs. Among them are a shopping mall and | a bank. "We're looking at a park (potentially) the size of | Disneyland or Knotts Berry Farm," Hanson said. t "Dollywood University" would teach public rela- " tions to local tourism workers, he said. ration In September, Parton asked the city council to approve funding for amenities for a theme park next to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. She was born near Pigeon Forge in west Tennessee. Film too soft on Washington? WASHINGTON (AP) — Actor Martin Sheen, who will portray Washington, D.C., homeless advocate Mitch Snyder in a television movie, has complained that the script for the upcoming film doesn't cut deep enough. "In its present form, the script avoids criticizing anyone in the administration, particularly the president," said Sheen in an appearance on "CBS Morning News." President Reagan promised two days before he I was re-elected to turn the shelter Snyder runs near Capitol Hill into a model facility for homeless people, but after 14 months the shelter is slated for closing. "If he (Reagan) were to show some personal 3 interest in the homeless via visiting a shelter or even Sheen inviting one homeless person to the White House for a bite to eat and a chance to warm up, you can imagine the effect on the consciousness of our country," Sheen said. Said Snyder: "We approached the idea of a television movie with pretty minimal expectations because we don't look to television for a real clear picture of reality." The Salina Journal Sunday, January 5,1986 Page 2 Tank's rupture leaves 1 dead, 8 hurt in Oklahoma WEBBERS FALLS, Okla. (AP) — A tank containing highly toxic, radioactive gas ruptured at a uranium- processing plant Saturday, killing a worked and injuring eight others, authorities said. Interstate 40 was closed for two hours after a cloud of slightly radioactive uranium hexafluoride gas floated into the air from the Sequoyah Fuels Corp. plant, officials said. The plant, owned by a subsidiary of the Oklahoma City-based Kerr- McGee Corp., is in a sparsely populated section about 40 miles west of Fort Smith, Ark. It was evacuated after a 14-ton cylinder ruptured late in the morning, but was back in operation by late afternoon, said Donna McFarland, spokeswoman for Kerr-McGee. She said she did not know how the cylinder broke. Dr. Michael Herndon, an emergency room physician at Sequoyah Memorial in Sallisaw, said doctors treated nine plant employees for "apparent hydrofluoric acid exposure." Exposure to the gas causes irritation to the eyes, skin and respiratory system, Herndon said. Two of the patients were transferred to Sparks Regional Medical Center in Fort Smith, where one of them, 25-year-old James Harrison, died, said nursing supervisor Doris Moon. Of the seven others treated, six Soviet emigre, accepted by MIT WILBRAHAM, Mass. (AP) When he was 9 years old, Alexander Gorodisher's parents realized their son had academic potential. Now the Soviet emigre, all of 14, has been accepted into Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "It's always been my dream school, ever since my brother got in," he said. Alex said he plans to major in math when he begins at MIT next fall and would like to become a research scientist. His 22-year-old brother, Hya, graduated last year from MIT. When he was 5, his parents, Vladimir and Raisa, left Leningrad to come to the United States because as Russian Jews, opportunities for them and their sons were limited. His family began to realize his academic potential when, at age 9, Alex achieved the average score of the college-bound senior on a Scholastic Aptitude Test. He left the public school system in the fifth grade to study at a private academy. were in stable condition and one was released, Herndon said. But, he said, dozens were waiting in the hospital's emergency room. When released into the atmosphere, uranium hexaflouride gas breaks down into hydrogen flouride and low-level radioactive uranyl flouride particles, McFarland said. Hydrogen flouride and hydroflouric acid, its form in the atmosphere, also are highly toxic. As a precaution, the 21 other employees and residents living in the path of the cloud will be examined by doctors, officials said. A radiation survey will be conducted, according to McFarland, but she said a preliminary survey indicated radioactivity in the area was at normal levels. Authorities said the cloud dissipated in winds of more than 20 mph about two hours after first report of the leak about 11:45 a.m. The state highway patrol said Interstate 40 was closed down in eastern Oklahoma from Webbers Falls to Vian until about 1:45 p.m. FDA examines tea that contains drug WASHINGTON (AP) - The Food and Drug Administration will look into a scientific study that concluded that a Peruvian tea sold in the United States has cocaine in it, an agency spokesman said Saturday. The tea, called Health Inca Tea, has been sold in American grocery and health stores and by mail order since 1983, scientists who performed the study said in a letter published in the Jan. 3 edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association. The researchers said drinking two cups a day of the tea, while causing no ill effects, could provide the drinker with mild stimulation, mood elevation and an increased pulse rate. They added that some people have reported chewing the teabags or smoking the leaf fragments in cigarettes.
