Nation/World The Salina Journal Wednesday, January 8,1986 Page 5 Briefly Four arrested for burning house PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Four people, including a juvenile, have been arrested on charges stemming from a Dec. 12 fire that burned a house vacated by a black couple in a mostly white neighborhood, the U.S. attorney said Tuesday. The four were charged with violating the civil rights statute and with destruction of government property, because the house that burned was owned by the Veterans Administration. The fire occurred after two nights of demonstrations by hundreds of whites, who demanded that the black couple and an interracial couple move out of the neighborhood. Those charged were George William Stewart, 25, Thomas Richard O'Donnell, 22, Vincent Joseph Callahan, 20, and a juvenile whose name was withheld. International Harvester renamed CHICAGO (AP) — International Harvester Co. dropped its century- and-a-half-old name Tuesday in favor of Navistar International Corp., a computer-chosen name the company hopes will be symbolic of better fortunes. While introducing its new name and corporate logo, Navistar said it would concentate on the medium- and heavy-truck market. The company had five years to drop the old name and International Harvester logo when it sold its farm-equipment division last year to Tenneco Inc. The division had been unprofitable for years. The name change was the latest move in a strategy designed to reverse declining performance. Heart transplant patient progresses SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A teen-age girl was "slowly progressing" Tuesday after a heart transplant, but officials said she had not been told that her new organ came from her boyfriend, who predicted his own death and asked that she get his heart. "It probably will be a decision between the parents and physician as to when she will be told," Presbyterian Hospital spokeswoman Nancy Millhouse said. Donna Ashlock, 14, underwent transplant surgery Sunday and was given the heart of Felipe Garza Jr., 15, a day after he suffered a burst blood vessel in his brain. A breathing tube was removed Monday and she was able to eat some ice cream that evening, Millhouse said. "She's slowly progressing" without any signs that the heart is being rejected, she added. Two killed when airplanes collide ZWEIBRUECKEN, West Germany (AP) — Two U.S. Air Force F-15 jet fighter planes collided Tuesday, killing one of the pilots and an elderly man on the ground, authorities said. Four civilians also were reported injured from falling debris. The U.S. Air Force headquarters at Ramstein Air Base said in a telex sent to the news media that one pilot was killed and the other escaped with minor injuries. "In additon, one German civilian was killed as a result of the crash," the statement said. The statement identified the dead pilot as Capt. Craig D. Lovelady, 29, of Glendale, Ariz. The west German was not indentified. The surviving pilot was identified as Col. Rudolph U. Zuberbuhler. The Air Force did not provide his hometown. Police said in a statement that the two airplanes collided mid- afternoon near the western city of Zweibrueken close to the French border. Postal hike will affect some groups WASHINGTON (AP) — Schools and libraries, churches and newspapers will be hit with their second postage increase of the month on Jan. 18, the Postal Service Board of Governors decided on Tuesday. On the heels of a Jan. 1 increase, which ranged from 23 to 41 percent, these mailers will have an additional rate hike of up to 11 percent. The rate increase is designed to make up the $72 million difference in what the Postal Service expected to receive from Congress and what it actually got when Congress appropriated money for the Postal Service on Dec. 19. The taxpayers make up the difference between the normal postage rates and the cheaper preferred rates ordered by Congress for mailing items such as church bulletins, charitable appeals and newspapers delivered in the county where they are published, farm and classroom publications and mail between libraries. Interviewed by telephone from Los Angeles where his organization is holding a conference, George E. Miller, president of the Nonprofit Mailers Federation said the rate increase may be challenged in court on grounds that nonprofit mailers are already paying the full cost of sending their mail. Once in the past, in 1981, Congress stepped in with a supplemental appropriation to roll back a postage increase for nonprofit mailers. Miller said he will urge his members to lobby Congress to get the latest increases reduced. Since coming into office five years ago, the Reagan administration has tried to eliminate all subsidies to mailers, but Congress has resisted the effort to abandon the program completely. John R. McKean, chairman of the Postal Service Board of Governors, told reporters Tuesday that the agency has "no right to expect" that Congf ess will continue to spend tax dollars to give reduced rates to some mailers. Congress has said nonprofit mailers do not have to contribute to the cost of Postal Service management and other "overhead." Columbia liftoff rescheduled for Thursday after fifth delay CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - The shuttle Columbia's return to space was delayed for a fifth time Tuesday by sand blowing off the Sahara and clouds in Spain and Florida that blocked visibility at emergency runways. "We have a bad habit going here," remarked mission commander Robert Gibson as he and his six astronaut colleagues left their spacecraft after once again waiting hours for a launch that did not happen. Among the crew is former Salina resident Steve Hawley. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration reset the liftoff for 6:05 a.m. CST Thursday. Columbia, the first shuttle to reach orbit, has been out of service more than two years undergoing renovations. The delays in launching the current flight have cost an estimated $600,000 to $900,000. Its flight is the first of 15 shuttle missions on an ambitious 1986 schedule. There were nine flights in 1985, a record year for manned missions. A 48-hour delay before the next launch attempt is needed to refuel auxiliary power units and to inspect engine insulation to make sure it was not damaged by two straight days of fueling. Launch director Bob Sieck said the schedule would be tight to make a Thursday launch, and that it might have to be put off until Friday. The weather that scrubbed the flight would have prevented Gibson from locating any of three emergency landing sites. If an engine or two is lost during the first four minutes of flight, Columbia would return to a three- mile runway near the launch pad. If some power is lost between four and seven minutes, the shuttle's main trans-Atlantic abort site would be the international airport at Dakar, Senegal, with a backup at a Spanish Air Force Base in Moron. As the count entered the final two hours Tuesday morning, weather conditions were favorable over Cape Canaveral, but clouds were moving in; clouds hung over Moron, and sand was blowing in from the desert at Dakar. When the effort was scrubbed, the clouds were beginning to clear above the launch area, but Moron was described as "socked in" and the sand had reduced visibility to one mile at Dakar. save when £S,£2!PRINfflES one package «... any size Rippled CONSUMER: Don I embarrass your dealer redeem this coupon ONLY by purchasing Ine brand size(s) indicated, wilh its value deducted tiom retail selling price Coupon ly nol be reproduced Void if transferred lo any person, firm or group prior lo tore redemption You pay any sales ta» Any other use conslMutes Iraud LIMIT ONE COUPON PER PURCHASE DEALER: Vbur redemption signifies compliance win P&G Coupon Require- ients dated 10 1 63 Free copy available by writing lo PROCTER ft GAMBLE. 2150 Sunnybrook Drive.
