Rupture (Continued from Page 1) individually and are put together "in the field''—at the center. "We haven't yet finished the analysis and measurements on film to identify the exact point at which the plume (of flame) appeared," Graham said on CBS' "Face the Nation." On NBC's "Meet the Press," he said "we haven't done the measurements yet to see whether it was at the seam or near the seam." There has been published speculation either that the finger of flame burned through the fuel tank wall and ignited its huge supply of liquid hydrogen, or that it set off the destruction mechanism by lighting a primer cord. But Charles Redmond, a NASA spokesman, said just heating the tank would have turned the liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen to gas, thus increasing the pressure beyond the bursting point. Hydrogen must be kept at minus 423 degrees Fahrenheit and oxygen Oil reports at minus 297 degrees to remain in liquid states. Graham, asked how soon shuttle flights might resume, replied that there was "no way to say what time we can go forward." But he added, "This is a fundamentally sound system. It's gone through 24 successful flights. "There is a problem there. But the overall configuration and design, we believe to be fundamentally sound and we believe it won't take a very long time to get this problem corrected." On Sunday, ships, planes and helicopters were searching three main areas: • 6,300 square miles from Melbourne, Fla., to St. Augustine and 80 miles offshore. • An area from Cape Canaveral to Savannah and 150 miles offshore, 33,000 square miles. • The shore to three miles out from Ponce de Leon, Fla., to Jacksonville. Speculation had been that the object recovered off the Georgia coast was the top of the fuel tank. But when the object arrived here, it was identified as part of the left booster rocket. Kansas operators announced 62 new locations, including 18 wildcats, and completed 85 tests during the past week. Included in the completions were 30 oil wells good for an estimated 1,848 barrels of oil a day, five gas wells at an estimated 2,285,000 cubic feet of gas a day, 44 dry holes and six service wells. The total footage drilled in the completions was about 338,565 feet or an average of 3,984 feet a test.

Christians, Druse battle in Lebanon BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - Fighting flared Sunday between Christian troops loyal to President Amin Gemayel and Syrian-backed Druse militiamen, and five bombs exploded in Christian east Beirut, one close to an office of Gemayel's Phalange Party. Security sources said at least three of the four bombs that blasted shops in east Beirut might have been linked to a feud between Christian Armenian factions. They said three Armenians were killed and another kidnapped in clashes over the weekend in predominantly Moslem west Beirut. The slaying of the three Friday night appeared to stem from an attempt to kidnap four Armenians that went awry when the intended victims shot it out with their attackers, the sources said. The only casualties reported from the bombings were at the Phalange office in east Beirut's Jaatawi quarter. Police said three people were wounded, but they were not party officials. They said the bomb, sticks of dynamite in a bag, was planted on the stairway of a four-story building in which the Phalange has a branch office on the second floor. There was no immediate claim of responsibility. Sunday's bombings were the third outbreak in east Beirut in recent days. A car bomb killed 30 people and wounded 133 near a Phalange office in east Beirut's Furn el- Subbak district Jan. 21. A satchel bomb exploded and wounded several people Friday outside an east Beirut pharmacy. But the blasts in east Beirut fanned tensions in Christian militiamen survey the damage at the branch office of President Gemayel hi Lebanon. the Christian sector as Syrian-backed Moslem, leftist and Christian opponents fought to oust Gemayel for scuttling a Syrian-brokered peace pact to end Lebanon's civil war, now in its llth year. There was no report of casualties as the two sides fought with rocket-propelled grenades and automatic weapons around the strategic army- held mountain town of Souk el-Gharb, eight miles southeast of Beirut. Gemayel's Phalangists and Christian troops of the fragmented Lebanese Army have skirmished daily with Syrian-backed leftist and Moslem militias in the central mountains since Jan. 15. That was when Gemayel's loyalists and diehards of the Lebanese Forces militia crushed the president's main Christian opponent, Elie Hobeika, in a showdown in which police said more than 350 people died. Gemayel's victory shredded the Damascus peace pact signed Dec. 28 by Hobeika, Druse chieftain Walid Jumblatt and Nabih Berri, leader of the Shiite Moslem Amal militia. Gemayel and other Maronite Catholic leaders feared the pact made too many concessions to Moslems and dismantled Christians' traditional political domination of Lebanon. A delegation of independent Maronites held weekend talks in Damascus with Syria's vice president, Abdul-Halim Khaddam, the pact's architect, in an apparent bid to head off a showdown in the anti-Gemayel campaign. But informed sources in Damascus, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the two days of closed-door talks were "a complete fiasco." Syrian officials made clear to the Maronites "that Syria is determined to implement the tripartite accord." They gave no other details. But the Maronites were the first pro-Gemayel Christians the Syrians have met with since Hobeika's Jan. 15 defeat. Toys based on TV shows are booming By The New York Tunes NEW YORK — Television programs that feature heroes and villains drawn from the toy-store shelf or developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys, once banned by federal regulations, are booming in the free market era of the current Federal Communications Commission. But while the programs have achieved both ratings success and huge merchandising profits, they also have prompted warnings from the American Academy of Pediatrics, a congressional committee chairman and a consumer group that children are being unfairly exploited. Four years ago, only one such television show was on the air; now, for instance, six of the seven animated shows broadcast in New York each weekday between 3 and 5 p.m., a prime viewing time for children, are based on toys, among them "Transformers," "GI Joe" and "He- Man and Masters of the Universe." And at a television trade convention in New Orleans last month, 30 toy-based shows were offered by producers. The profits for such animated series can be large. Mattel's "He- Man" line of toys, for example, featured in its own television series, brought in an estimated $350 million in sales last year. The producers of the show shared in the toy profits, and the toy company shared in the program's revenues. A toy featured in its own show Corrections —, —— Because of a Journal error, a survivor of Carl D. Caldwell, 85, of Portis, who died Friday, Jan. 31, was omitted from his obituary. Mr. Caldwell is also survived by a daughter, Carolyn Kaser of Osborne. *• * * Because of a Journal error, an incorrect date was given for the annual birthday banquet of the Salina branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The banquet will be at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 11 at the Holiday Inn. Pet of the week gains not only publicity, but a valuable sales gimmick: A story line that can enhance the toy's appeal. "An American child really needs that story line to help it play, and one of the ways to do that is with a TV program," said Cherie Stawasz, spokesman for Tonka Toys. Tonka makes "GoBots," a line of robot toys that star in their own animated series. But, according to critics, toy-based shows pose a problem for the young audience that the shows attract. "They sell a product while claiming to be entertainment, and I think that's unconscionable," said Dr. William H. Dietz, chairman of the American Academy of Pediatrics' task force on children and television. The academy has cautioned against such programs. "If there were a show for adults based on vacuum cleaners, Hoover vacuum cleaners, it would be boycotted," Dietz said. "What the shows do is hook kids on these program-length commercials that in fact offer an engaging story but are designed to sell the product. And kids don't know the difference. "It is unfair and deceptive advertising. It is unethical to do that." Officer remains in stable condition The Salina police officer who was shot four times and suffered six bullet wounds Friday afternoon remained in stable condition Sunday night at Asbury Hospital. Glen Soldan, 30, was shot as he attempted to question Maurice Barnard Moore, 43, of Washington, D.C., about a hit-and-run accident. Soldan suffered three bullet wounds to his upper body and another to his right thigh-. Two of the bullets fired at his upper body first struck his right hand. Fire destroys home of teen, disabled mother MEADOWBROOK, Calif. (AP) — At the age of 18, Martin Hillig has lost his father, ended his schooling so he could work to support his disabled mother, and now he's lost his home and all the family's belongings, with no insurance. But the teen-ager remains undaunted and says he sure things will work out. "I never saw him break down over his dad. I never saw him break down over the fire. But he's an 18-year-old kid who's had to grow up mighty quick," saictTom Parker, service manager at the car dealership where Hillig works in nearby Penis. Several years ago, Hillig's mother, Madeline, became ill with disabling blood and eye disorders. When his father died of pneumonia at the age of 42 the day after Easter last year, he quit school for a full-time job. "I probably could have stayed in school, but I kind of felt I should go out and work," he said. Last Monday, his mother was cooking when grease spilled from a frying pan and ignited in their mobile home 65 miles southeast of Los Angeles. "She couldn't do anything about it, so she just got out," Hillig said. For your information Hospital admissions Asbury — Sandra A. Breeden, Rt. 2; Lillian L. Campbell, 1448 Bachtold; Sandra K.
