Nation/World The Salina Journal Sunday, January 5,1986 Page 5 Hart won't seek Senate re-election EVERGREEN, Colo. (AP) - Sen. Gary Hart announced Saturday he will not seek a third term in the U.S. Senate, adding he still has "an interest in being president." "In 1987,1 will not be representing Colorado in the U.S. Senate, but I will continue to be a voice for Colorado," he told a gathering of more than 300 supporters and reporters. Hart hinted that a decision about his presidential aspirations would be announced later. "I don't intend to be coy about my own plans," he said. "Does that mean that I'm making some announcement about 1988? Nope. Does it mean I still have an interest in being president? Yup." He said his work was "not over yet. ... It's a step in a long journey, a journey to achieve this nation's destiny." Hart, 49, Colorado's senior senator, moved to the head of possible contenders for the Democratic nomination after Sen. Edward Kennedy announced he would not seek the presidency in 1988. Other Democrats considered in the running are Gov. Mario Cuomo of New York, Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware and Rep. Richard Gephardt of Missouri. Hart was applauded enthusiastically by his supporters, many of whom had been his delegates at the 1984 Democratic National Convention. "It was not an easy decision to make," Hart said. Being the senior senator from Colorado has been "the biggest reward I can possibly imagine," he said. In the Senate, he said, "I tried to operate out of a sense of personal conviction. One person with genuine convictions can overcome all the skepticism and cynicism that too often surrounds politics." In Washington, Democratic Party national chairman Paul Kirk, said Hart's decision meant the Senate would "lose one of its most thoughtful members a year from now." "But Sen. Hart's voice will be strong and influential in the corning debate about the future of the Democratic Party and the nation," Kirk said. Republicans seen as likely to enter the race iclude Vice President George Bush, Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole of Kansas, Rep. Jack Kemp of New York, former Gov. Pete DuPont of Delaware, Transportation Secretary Elizabeth Dole, former U.N. Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick and Donald Rumsfeld, a former Illinois congressman and Defense secretary. A recent poll by The Denver Post- NewsCenter 4 found that Hart would get at least 50 percent of the vote in a Senate race. Coloradans would be less likely to vote for him if he ran for the Senate in 1986 and later campaigned for the White House, the poll found. Volcano spewing ash forces an evacuation Gary Hart announces plans. Hart said he would support Rep. Tim Wirth of Boulder in the Senate race. Wirthhas not announced he will seek Hart's seat, but is considered the leading Democratic contender. Wirth is known nationally for his work as chairman of the House panel that oversaw the breakup of AT&T. Three Republicans already have begun campaigning for Hart's seat: Rep. Ken Kramer of Colorado Springs, state Sen. Martha Ezzard and Terry Considine, 38, son-in-law of state GOP Chairman Howard Callaway. In 1984, Hart began as a dark horse — stressing his "new ideas" platform — but gave Walter Mondale a strong challenge before the latter won the Democratic nomination. Hart won the New Hampshire primary and placed second in the Iowa caucuses. BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) - The Nevado del Ruiz volcano rained sulfuric ash Saturday for the first time since its catastrophic November eruption, prompting a dawn evacuation of about 15,000 farmers from six river valleys creasing its slopes, the government said. Police used sirens to rouse the settlers, most of them peasant farmers, provided them with blankets and food, and escorted them to higher ground. Victor Ricardo, president of the government's National Emergency Committee, called it a "preventive measure" until the threat of a new eruption passes. The shower of sulfuric vapor and ash started falling at 3 a.m., Ricardo told a nationwide radio and television audience. It was the same activity, he said, that signaled the Nov. 13 eruption. That eruption melted part of the volcano's cone of ice and snow, sending a 150-foot-high wall of mud down the Langunilla River. Mud and debris buried the town of Armero, about 105 miles northwest of the capital of Bogota, and partially destroyed 13 villages in the Armero Valley. About 23,00 of Armero's 28,000 residents were killed or missing. An additional 2,000 people perished in Chinchina, 22 miles west of the volcano. Police said Saturday's organized evacuation, ordered by the emergency committee, began at 6 a.m. They reported panic in some settlements touched by the new-fallen ashes but said the operation went smoothly. It was first reported that 30,000 people were being evacuated. President Belisario Betancur flew to Manizales, a city six miles below the snow-capped Andean crater, to consult with 70 scientists who have kept vigil over the volcano since the November tragedy. Later, he flew over the 17,700-foot-high peak in a helicopter. The evacuated zone covers low- lying rural areas of six municipalities along the Azufrado, Lan- gunillas, Recio, Guali, Sabandija and Chinchina rivers. All flow from the slopes of the volcano. One municipality is Chinchina, which was heavily damaged by the November eruption. Many settlers had moved back there. The other municipalities affected were Villamaria, Mariquita, La Dorada, Honda and Ambalema. They lie in a 30-mile radius around Nevado del Ruiz and have a combined population of 150,000. Ricardo said about 10 percent of the residents living in low-lying areas were evacuated. He said other communities have received orders to stock up on food, blankets and radios in case of more evacuations.

Maine battened down for a second blast as the fast- moving storm over the Midwest was expected to hit Sunday with "even more potential than the one we had yesterday," said National Weather Service meteorologist Ashley Badger in Portland. "Mostly all snow on this one." Winter storm watches and travelers' advisories were posted along a line from Iowa to Maine. On Friday, that storm had blocked highways with snowdrifts in parts of Wyoming and South Dakota. Up to 5 inches of snow propelled by 30 mph wind swept across much of Iowa on Saturday, with the worst conditions in the northern part of the state. "Visibility is down to 100 feet in some places," said Yvonne Dundee of the Cerro Gordo County sheriff's office. "The roads are mostly down to one lane." About 20 cars were involved in a chain-reaction crash on Interstate 35 about 10 miles north of Des Moines that injured five people and temporarily closed the highway's southbound lanes, police. Roads elsewhere were just as slippery. "We're pulling them out of the ditches as fast as we can," said a spokesman for the Iowa Highway Patrol in Fort Dodge. "We're not even counting the number of cars off the road," said a highway patrol dispatcher who declined to identify herself. "There are just too many of them." At Boondocks USA, a popular truck stop along 1-35 north of Des Moines, business picked up as motorists pulled off to wait out the storm. "Some of them have been here quite a while," said Lilian Thies, who said the crowd at times numbered 75 travelers. While much of Iowa was buffeted by blowing snow, the Dubuque area in the far northeast was iced by freezing rain. Parts of southwestern Minnesota along the Iowa border also had 35 mph wind whipping up about 6 inches of fluffy . new snow. •Princ.

Press comes under fire in Beirut BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - Militiamen of the Christian Lebanese Forces Saturday seized a magazine critical of a Syrian-sponsored peace pact their leaders negotiated with Moslem foes, further muzzling the news media in Beirut. The militiamen stormed into a printing press in Christian east Beirut and confiscated all copies of the Al-Massira weekly as Syria warned it will not tolerate Christian opposition to the peace accord. In west Beirut, gunmen ambushed George Alam, security chief of Lebanon's Damascus-backed Syrian Social Nationalist Party, seriously wounding him and two bodyguards, police said. Three gunmen fired machine guns and two rocket-propelled grenades at Alam's convoy as he drove on Hamra Street, west Beirut's main commercial district, and fled on foot immediately after the attack, police said. Alam's party is a leftist Lebanese faction that advocates merging Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Kuwait, Cyprus and pre-Israel Palestine into a Greater Syria. Earlier Saturday, the Syrian government Tishrin daily in Damascus stressed: "Syria will turn into a stubborn enemy of anyone who tries to obstruct the march to peace in Lebanon." The magazine seizure was the third time in recent weeks that the Lebanese Forces, the Christians' main fighting machine, has clamped down on media critical of its policies.
