"BEST COPY AVAILASL 2 Section 1 Chicago Tribune. Friday, November 28, 1980 Snow hikes holiday toll in Midwest By Sam Smith AT LEAST 10 traffic deaths in the Midwest were attributed to icy or snowy road conditions during the first dav of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, when a storm dumped 3 to 5 inches of snow in the Chicago area and up to 10 inches Downstate. Four fatalities reported Thursday in Michigan and three each in Missouri and Downstate Illinois were attributed to the storm, which was heading northeast after blanketing sections of the Midwest. The National Weather Service said road conditions in the Chicago area were expected to remain hazardous Friday morning because of freezing temperatures. No traffic fatalities, however, had been reported in the area as of late Thursday, according to police. At least 117 traffic deaths were reported across the nation between Wednesday evening, when the Thanksgiving holiday officially began, and Thursday night. Most of the snow accumulation in the six -county Chicago area occurred between 6:30 a.m. and noon, making driving hazardous. The majority of traffic accidents reported were minor as motorists apparently heeded warnings to avoid travel. "It's a good thing this happened on a holiday," said Ed Lao, a spokesman for the Illinois Department of Transportation. "If the snow had come last night, we could have had real problems." STILL, THE SNOW, which had tapered off In Chicago by early afternoon, did bring its share of confusion: Operations at O'Hare International Airport, the world's busiest, were halted for more than one hour Thursday morning when fog and heavy snow reduced visibility to almost zero. Joe Hopkins, a United Airlines spokesman, said several flights bypassed O'Hare and flew to their next stop and returned later in the day, causing passengers delays of three hours and more. Trailways and Greyhound bus spokesmen reported two-hour delays, mostly on buses traveling south and southeast of Chicago, where heavier snow was reported. Champaign reported about 9 inches, Du Quoin 10, and mere than 6 inches fell In St. Louis, much of it Wednesday night, snarling rush hour traffic and holi- ; . . . . ) . . , -, .. .! 1 - - 4 ; 1 .

Some 400 runners day travel. A Trailways spokesman said the closing of the South Bend, Ind., airport slowed buses coming into Chicago. Two power outages on the South Side, affecting 2.900 customers, were restored by 3 p.m., according to Bill Harrah, a Commonwealth Edison spokesman. A fallen wire was responsible for the outage, he said. "THIS WAS SUPPOSED to be a festive day, but we're all sitting here in the dark," said Sally Need-ham, who, along with 10 other family members, was at her mother's Merrill Avenue home late Thursday afternoon without electricity and trying to figure out what to do with a cold turkey.

Pennsylvania Thursday as the storm, which dumped snow as far south as Texas, continued on its northeastern path. It hit Chicago early Thanksgiving morning, said the National Weather Service, dropping 5 inches and more in some south and southeastern sections and 3 inches or less north of the city. The official measuring station at O'Hare reported 3 . inches when the snow tapered off around, noon. Clearing skies and no precipitation were forecast for the rest of the holiday weekend. TEMPERATURES above freezing also lessened the storm's impact, officials said, making plowing of roads and airport runways easier.

' Plane crashes in fog in Idaho; 6 killed DRIGGS, Idaho L'PI A twin-engine private plane crashed on landing in eastern Idaho early Thursday, killing a man, three of his children, the man's brother, and a friend. Sheriff Tim Trout said the Beechcraft airplane was registered to James Clay, Belvedere, Cal., who was believed to be the pilot. The plane crashed just after midnight in heavy fog short of the runway at the Driggs airport. Aboard the aircraft with Clay were his three children, Cameron, 13; Mitchell, 11; Stacey, 17; a brother, Charles Clay, of South Lake Tahoe, Cal., and Perry Anderson, of South Lake Tahoe. Fnm TribwK Wi Stnriet - NAPLES, Italy Torrential rain swept earthquake-ravaged' areas of Italy for the second day Thursday, bogging relief efforts and intensifying the misery of more than 200,000 homeless as the casualty toll continued to rise four days after the nation's worst earthquake in 63 years. ' - ' Weather officials said the heavy rains drenching the mountains east of Naples would turn to snow by the weekend, making the search for bodies more difficult. The official toll stood at 3,100 confirmed dead, 2,000 missing and presumed dead, and 8,000 injured. Despite the official count, one general directing relief efforts in the provincial capital of Avellino, 31 miles east of Naples, estimated the death toll could rise as high as 10,000 in that province atone. "It could be as much as 10,000," Gen. Antonio Tamborrino said. "That's my impression, based on what I've seen and the requests for help coming in." Thousands of refugees huddled together under the downpour, some of them with only blankets. THE NATIONAL government's cumbersome and inept relief effort finally got under way, and tons of aid began reaching the 150 towns and villages destroyed or badly damaged by Sunday's earthquake, which measured 6.8 on the Richter scale. But the suffering of survivors, forced to live outdoors because of strong aftershocks, was compounded by heavy , fains "and near-freezing temperatures. The rains began Wednesday and grew Into fierce thunderstorms Thursday. It took a plea by the Pope, a warning by Italy's president, and an offer by the interior minister to resign before the national government's relief effort finally began with the arrival of 17,500 soldiers bearing tons of food, blankets, and medicine. . , 1 But the thunderstorms turned mountain roads to mud, slowing the relief effort almost as soon as it got started in an organized, large-scale way.

Most of the 2,000 people listed as mi$V . ing were believed buried beneath iubbk and presumed dead. There was one brief ray of hope later -dashed that a group of kindergarten children miraculously had been rescued alive from the rubble of a children's home Wednesday night in Senerchia. "I wish these reports were true," said 21-year-old Luigi . Jannaccone, ; a volunteer helper in charge of Sener-. chia's camp for earthquake survivors. "At this point they are all dead, and we do not know how to get them out." "THE WHOLE TOWN has collapsed and the bodies are under thousands of tons of rubble, and we only have a couple of bulldozers," he said. Rescue workers said they would have to use flame-throwers and chemicals to disinfect the rubble of the kindergarten. 'We have some flame-throwers and chemicals, and, I hate to say it, but I think we'll have to use them soon," Jannaccone said, referring to the possibility of disease spreading from the contaminated bodies under tons of rubble. Interior Ministry officials said government rescue teams had reached all 150 stricken towns and villages by midday Thursday. But the slowness of the relief effort created such a scandal that Interior Minister Virginio Rognoni offered to resign. Premier Arnaldo Forlani refused to accept the resignation. Pope John iPaul II also- appealed for faster relief, and President Sandro Per-tini went on national television and radio to say that charges would be brought against officials responsible for the "serious failures" in the relief effort. STOPPED IN FRONT of a television camera, one volunteer relief worker shouted: "What did they do? What are they doing? They have left us all alone. I drove 1,000 kilometers for what? What about those who went to rescue the Vietnamese babies or the Algerian quake victims? When are they coming?" Index Sec. Pg.
