A tornado ripped through a 500-lot mobile home park, a department store and a small shopping center in southwest Lawrence, killing one person and injuring about 33 others. The tornado Friday evening tore into the Gaslight Village, a mobile home park In southwest Lawrence, heaping between 15 and 20 mobile homes into piles of mangled debris, said Allen Loyd, public Information officer for Lawrence. It was not known immediately how many of the homes were occupied when the tornado struck. Authorities evacuated the mobile home park late Friday night to determine if any residents still were missing. A 20-year-old Lawrence man was killed Friday night when part of the roof and a wall caved In at a K mart store, which was open when the tornado hit, said another Lawrence official, Mike Wildgen. The victim was not immediately identified. Guerrillas kill two in U.N. force BEIRUT, Lebanon Guerrillas loyal to the Palestine Liberation Organization killed two Fijian soldiers from the U.N. peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon, a U.N. spokesman said. The spokesman, Samir Sanbar, said the PLO told the U.N. office in Beirut that the soldiers were shot Friday while trying to escape from captivity near the village of Bayyada, nine miles north of the Israeli border. Earlier, Sanbar had reported four other Fijian soldiers missing. One of them turned up later, the spokesman said, and three others captured by "armed elements" were released unharmed. The U.N. force is intended to be a buffer between Israel and Palestinian guerrillas in southern Lebanon. Friday's deaths brought to 64 the number of U.N. troops killed since the 6,000-man force from 12 countries was dispatched three years ago. Haig: Vietnam could end isolation MANILA, Philippines Vietnam could take a step toward ending its international isolation by attending a U.N. conference on Cambodia next week, Secretary of State Alexander M. Haig Jr. said today. "Only Vietnam can end its isolation, and attendance at the international conference could signal Hanoi's interest to do so," Haig said. Vietnam has already said that it prefers a regional conference to an international setting and that it will not attend the U.N. session. Haig, who was meeting with foreign ministers of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, said he would attend the July 13 meeting in New York, which is aimed at finding ways to encourage Vietnam to withdraw its 200,000 troops from Cambodia, which it invaded in December 1978. Haig leaves tonight for New Zealand to attend a meeting of the ANZUS Pact nations Australia, New Zealand and the United States. Two European satellites launched KOUROU, French Guiana Western Europe's Ariane rocket rose from its Jungle launching pad here Friday, the reverberations rolling across the wild coastal savanna, and successfully boosted two satellites into orbit. The performance of the 1 55-f oot-tall rocket was reported to be "perfectly normal," following a failure the last time it was launched, and moved the 11 -nation European Space Agency closer to realizing its goal of an independent and active space-launching program. One more test flight is scheduled in November. The two spacecraft deployed by Ariane a European weather satellite and an experimental communications satellite built by India were also reported to be functioning normally. The 1 1 nations in the program are France, Belgium, Britain, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and West Germany. Confusion blamed in workers' deaths CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. An investigative board says inadequate explanation of a last-minute change in testing procedures was partly to blame for an accident on the space shuttle launch pad that killed two workers. The 400-page report, Issued Friday by the space agency, said the communications breakdown led to confusion about whether the pad was clear and open for a return to normal work operations. The report also cited Inadequate safety procedures as a major factor leading to the March 19 accident. The workers, employed by Rockwell International, the primary shuttle contractor, died from inhaling pure nitrogen after re-entering the orbiter Columbia's engine compartment following a test. The test procedure "did not contain adequate steps for clearing the vehicle (shuttle) or pad for hazardous operations and for . . . reopening the vehicle and pad for resumption of normal work," said the report by a National Aeronautics and Space Administration investigative board. 'Passive smoking' risks discounted WASHINGTON The American Cancer Society is asserting that there is insufficient scientific evidence to conclude that a man's cigarette smoking will increase his nonsmoking wife's chances of developing lung cancer. Epidemiologist Lawrence Garfinkel's said Friday that his examination of data in two large studies led him to conclude that too many other variables must be taken into account in determining a person's cancer risk. He said no studies to date have yielded data precise enough to determine that passive smoking is a hazard to nonsmok-ers. Garfinkel's conclusions differ from the results of a well-publicized Japanese study which was released in January. In it, Dr. Takeshi Hirayama claimed to have proven that nonsmoking wives whose husbands smoked developed lung cancer at a much greater rate than nonsmoking wives of nonsmoking husbands. New Trident sub heads for home base NEW LONDON, Conn. The Trident submarine Ohio headed for its home base today after completing three days of sea trials during which an engine problem reportedly was. encountered and solved. The engine on the 560-foot sub, the nation's largest and the first of its class, began clicking during the first day at sea, The Day of New London reported Friday. But crewmen were able to make the necessary repairs and the sub made its first dive. The newspaper said the clicking noise was heard in the sub's reduction gears which transform the power from the reactor and turbine to the propeller shaft. Strategy talks planned Anti-busing forces consider total ban WASHINGTON (AP) One victory under their belts, anti-busing forces in the Senate are trying to decide whether to press for an outright ban on the use of busing to remedy racial segregation In schools. Strategy talks planned through the weekend are calculated to gauge the depth of support for such a total ban before a decision Is reached on how tough to make key amendments due for votes Monday. Sen. Lowell Weicker, the Connecticut Republican who is leading the fight against the amendments, vows to continue his battle but Is giving no hints about whether he will try another filibuster. U.S. votes to condemn Israeli raid The Associated Presi UNITED NATIONS The Reagan administration, testing a new Middle East balancing act, has walked a narrow diplomatic line between U.S. strategic interests In the Persian Gulf region and a traditionally strong commitment to Israel. The United States supported a unanimous U.N. Security Council resolution Friday strongly condemning the Israeli bombing raid on Iraq's nuclear reactor and saying Iraq was entitled to "appropriate redress." But the Americans were able to head off Arab demands for sanctions against the Jewish state. While expressing regret over the U.S. vote, Israeli Ambassador Yehuda Z. Blum looked on it as only a "temporary irritant" in Israeli-U.S. relations. He said he was gratified that U.S. Ambassador Jeane J. Kirkpatrick had hailed Israel as "a friend and ally." MRS. KIRKPATRICK conceded that no one was completely happy about the outcome. But she maintained that what emerged was a "good deal preferable from the point of view of our fundamental interests, Israel's fundamental interests . . . peace, Iraq's fundamental interests . . . than another available outcome would have been." The alternative to which she referred was a sanctions resolution that the United States would have been forced to veto. Such a veto would have distressed moderate Arab states, like Saudi Arabia, which the United States is attempting to win over to a "strategic The 45-30 vote defeating a Weicker proposal Friday showed clearly that the anti-busing forces have the clout to enact some sort of restriction limiting federal government efforts to use busing as one method of Integrating schools. Weicker had sought to dilute the effect of Sen. Jesse Helms' amendment prohibiting the Justice Department from seeking court orders Imposing busing in school cases. THE HELMS PROPOSAL would have no effect on what the judges themselves could devise as a remedy for segregation. It also would not affect what private plaintiffs could ask the courts to impose. The only restriction would be on gov emment lawyers initiating requests for busing orders. Weicker, among others, questioned whether it would be constitutional to Impose such a restriction on the Justice Department. He argued that it would violate the constitutional doctrine of separation of powers for the legislative branch to tie the hands of the executive branch in such fashion, After the Weicker amendment collapsed, Sen. Bennett Johnston, D-La., announced his intention to offer an amendment even more restrictive than the Helms plan. JOHNSTON'S PROPOSAL would prohibit federal courts from ordering the busing of any student for a distance more than five miles from the nearest neighborhood school or Imposing a trip that would take more than 15 minutes longer than it would take to reach the neighborhood school, Senate sources said there is no question that leaders of the anti-busing movement support Johnston. The restriction on the Justice Department was passed by the, last Congress but vetoed by then-President Jimmy Carter. President Reagan has expressed sympathy for the effort, but has withheld a definite response on whether he would sign a bill with such restrictions.

A surprising aspect of the week-long diplomatic maneuvering was the eagerness of both Iraq and the United States to hammer out a compromise resolution censuring Israel. THE IRAQI GOVERNMENT of President Saddam Hussein, locked in a sluggish war with revolutionary Iran, evidently wanted face-saving International support to assuage the deep embarrassment caused by the Israeli strike. While formal diplomatic relations between Baghdad and Washington were suspended In 1967, the United States has watched with approval Iraq's growing coolness toward the Soviet Union, its main arms supplier. The Russians and Iraqis still are linked by a treaty of friendship. An American official, who asked not to be identified, said the unusual display of U.S.-Iraqi cooperation here was a show of Baghdad's determination to follow an independent foreign policy. WASHINGTON (AP) The State Department says Sen. Alan Cranston's estimate that Iraq's nuclear reactor could have produced three atomic bombs a year is far too high. It estimates the reactor destroyed by Israeli planes June 7 could have produced a maximum of 5 to 10 kilograms of weapons-grade plutonium a year rather than the 24 kilograms Cranston cited. That would translate to a capability of no more than one nuclear bomb a year. In a detailed analysis requested by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, the department also disputes a former inspector's testimony that International Atomic Energy Agency procedures were too poor to detect an Iraq nuclear weapons effort. The former Inspector, Roger Richter, testified Friday that he concluded Iraq was trying to develop nuclear weapons within five years. He quit his job Tuesday so he would be free to testify. THE COMMITTEE IS conducting hearings on whether Iraq indeed intended to develop nuclear weapons and whether Israel violated a U.S. agreement by using U.S. planes to destroy Iraq's reactor. That agreement says U.S. military supplies will be used for defensive purposes only, or with United Nations sanctions. I Cranston, ranking Democrat on the committee, told the panel Thursday that a study prepared for the International Atomic Energy Agency estimated Iraq's reactor could have produced 17 to 24.5 kilograms of plutonium a year. j Richter said Iraq could have hidden weapons development from IAEA Inspectors by removing signs of the program during the three IAEA inspections each year. ; And he said most of the items Iraq could have used to develop weapons f-including 100 tons of "yellow cake" uranium ore before it is enriched and, a plutonium processor are not subject to IAEA Inspection. ;. But the State Department paper says IAEA inspections are not limited to three a year and that surprise inspections are one of several measures that could have been taken to prevent Iraq's development of weapons. ; Going away fine, but return : still up in air or grounded Reagan: House Demos must reshape cutbacks WASHINGTON (AP) Vowing to end the "fiscal joy ride in Washington," President Reagan and his House allies say a $37.8 billion package of budget cuts fashioned by Democratic-controlled committees must be reshaped to the President's liking. Reagan's budget office issued an analysis Friday saying nearly a quarter of the "so-called savings" put together by the Democrats were achieved through "accounting gimmicks, inclusion of items that do not belong, unrealistic proposals and wishful thinking." Administration officials and their backers in the House say their concern is that the Democratic package of 1982 cuts would fall billions of dollars short of the permanent changes needed to put federal spending on a track toward Reagan's goal of a balanced budget in 1984. "WE CAN AND we will put a stop to the fiscal joy ride In Washington," Reagan said at the White House as he threw his support behind a plan to push for $5.2 billion in additional 1982 budget cuts. The plan was outlined Friday at the Capitol by House Republican Leader Robert H. Michel of Illinois, who said the GOP was offering a"bare-bones" amendment. He expressed confidence a majority of the Democratic House will go along in what promises to be a bitter floor fight. Michel conceded it will be tougher than Reagan's easy victory last month on a budget blueprint that set the minimum bottom line for the cuts at issue now. House Speaker Thomas P. O'Neill Jr., D-Mass., predicts the Democrats will win this one. Meanwhile, Reagan asked Congress Friday to cancel $321 million in spend- , , ing authorized for a variety of pro- resignation fami 4f ficial IGfll urttlifc antc Cant 30. The Associated Press Jet setters planning to catch, a plane this weekend may have to take the long way home as airports across the country brace for a threatened air controllers' strike. Switchboards at bus terminals, train stations and rental car agencies lit up Friday as worried commuters tried sometimes in vain to plan their trips around ground transportation. The federal government has a contingency plan shutting down 60 percent of the scheduled flights if the controllers strike as planned at 7 a.m. Monday, with flights under 500 miles first on the chopping block. THE PORT AUTHORITY of New York and New Jersey, which operates Kennedy, LaGuardia and Newark Airports, said in a statement Friday that a strike would force more than 100,000 daily passengers to cancel air travel plans or find alternative means of travel. Thousands would suffer delays in reaching their destination, the statement said, and the economic impact to the region could result In an estimated loss of $18 million per day to the airlines. Pacific Southwest Airlines, California's largest air carrier, said it would ground its fleet if the walkout materializes. Grounded with the fleet would be 20,000 people who fly daily between the 17 cities the airline serves, a PSA spokesman said. "We're pulling our hair out," said San Francisco travel agent Diana Mauras. "People are canceling meetings, canceling flights and trying to get train reservations." ; The Los Angeles-Seattle Coast Starlight was sold out even before a strike loomed, Amtrak said. ; UW accepts AMONG THE largest proposed cutbacks were $100 million in grants to states for social and child welfare services, $130 million earmarked for urban development action grants and $50 million for community development grants. In his statement on the 1982 budget, Reagan called the coming House vote on the GOP amendments "a crucial test" of his proposed economic program. - "During recent weeks, many House committees have made a good faith effort to help bring federal spending under control," Reagan said. "I applaud them for their efforts. But In two major instances, the bill that is emerging in the House Budget Committee has serious shortcomings." from Jennings LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) With "deep regrets" and "warmest best regards" the University of Wyoming Board of Trustees has voted 11-1 to accept the resignation of UW President Edward H. Jennings. Board President Leo P. McCue Jr. cast the only vote against accepting Jennings' resignation Wednesday, which will be effective Sept. 1. Jennings resigned June 11 when he was named president of Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. Scientists seek check of new St. Helens dome VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) Scientists who correctly predicted Mount St. Helens' fourth quiet, dome-building eruption hoped for a break in the weather today to determine how much the lava dome had grown. Chunks of molten rock emerged through cracks in the crater floor Friday and solidified into a new lobe on the northwest part of the dome, already much larger than a sports stadium. The frequency of shallow, volcanic earthquakes, one of the clues that led scientists to predict that an eruption was imminent late Thursday, leveled off late Friday, said Priscilla Walker, of the University of Washington geophysics center in Seattle. AN ERUPTION ALERT REMAINED in effect, however, and the restricted areas around the volcano remained closed. A U.S. Geological Survey helicopter found a brief hole in the clouds Friday afternoon and darted into the , crater. No estimate for the size and shape of the dome addition was available, said USGS geologist Kathy Cashman. When last measured, the dome was 300 to 400 feet high and 1,200 feet wide.
