FAA will inspect aircraft makers -THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL- MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 21,1987-3 Ha/?/? testifies in PTL probe WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal Aviation Administration chief Allan McArtor announced today that his agency would begin inspecting the U.S. aircraft manufacturing industry but he insisted the move was not sparked by safety questions. McArtor told reporters the check would involve about 40 of the more than 1,300 companies that build aircraft or airplane parts. Citing public concern over air safety and rapid technological changes in aircraft manufacturing, McjArtor said, "There is a need for a frejih look at the civil aircraft manu- fa$uring environment." The administrator emphasized there were no indications to date th4t proper manufacturing or testing procedures had been ignored by the industry. "I want to make certain there is no: misunderstanding," he said. "I am not questioning the quality or the safety of these products up to this point." Manufacturers and the parts they build are currently certified by the FAA, but McArtor said the new inspections would take a more in- depth look to ensure that the companies are following proper procedures and have updated their techniques as technology advanced. McArtor said he expected the first completed audits by the end of November. The entire inspection program will take 15 to 18 months, he said As public concern increased about a flurry of near-collisions and the deadly Northwest crash in Detroit, McArtor, who took over the agency in July, has instituted checks of airline pilot training and called for corporate officials to be more accountable. CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Jessica Hahn, whose 1980 tryst with evangelist Jim Bakker led to his resignation from the PTL ministry in March, was rushed into a federal courthouse today to testify before a grand jury investigating PTL. The former church secretary said nothing as she was ushered past photographers and reporters by her attorney, Dominic Barbara. "After the testimony is over, we will have a statement," Barbara said. "We hope the testimony will be over this morning and we'll be out of here this afternoon." Miss Hahn, of West Babylon, N.V., arrived here Sunday, but Barbara told reporters she was too tired to answer questions. She has avoided publicity recently, awaiting the Arbitrator rules against owners in collusion case », A triumph for baseball players NEW YORK (AP) — An arbitrator ruled on Monday that baseball owners conspired to "destroy" the free agency market after the 1985 season by not offering contracts to players on other teams. Arbitrator Tom Roberts did not make any suggestions with his ruling. But players' union chief Don Fehr said he expected to meet with Roberts soon and hoped to work out some remedies "by the end of the week." ' Kirk Gibson, Donnie Moore and Tony Bemazard were among 62 free agents affected by the decision. Roberts gave the decision to Fehr and Barry Rona, head of the owners' Player Relations Committee, during a one-hour, 20-minute meeting Monday. "The arbitrator found that the clubs entered into a common scheme, the effect of which was to destroy free agency," Fehr said. "It was about as strong an opinion as we could have hoped for." Roberts ruled on an action brought by the Major League Players Association against the owners. The players say owners conspired to restrict the movement of free-agent players in violation of their collective bargaining agreement. Owners say they were exercising "fiscal responsibility. The action was filed on behalf of 62 free agents in 198S. A similar action covering 1986 free agents currently is being heard by arbitrator George Nicolau. None of the 1985 free agents — including players such as Carlton Fisk, Butch Wynegar and Phil and Joe Niekro — received offers from teams other than the one they were with the previous season. Cargo ships collide off Pt Concepcion Passengers of one ship jump aboard other CONCEPCION, Calif. (AP) — Two large cargo ships collided 16 miles offshore in foggy weather today, forcing the passengers of one flooded vessel to jump aboard the other boat while awaiting Coast Gftard rescuers, officials said. TThere is no threat to life now," said Coast Guard Capt. George Sitnpson. rrhe Pac Baroness, a 175-meter freighter carrying copper and lead, arid the 180-meter Atlantic Wing, catrying automobiles, collided at 6:23 a.m. 20 miles west of Santa Barbara near Point Conception, Sitnpson said. .'It was just boom! They collided," he said. rrhe cause of the collision was unknown, but "we know the weather! up there is pretty poor," said Cdast Guard Petty Officer Leo Kay. "It's rather foggy with one-half mile visibility ami a 200-foot ceil- ing. That probably contributed to the collision, I would think." The approximately 25 crew members aboard the Pac Baroness abandoned ship as the vessel began taking on water and hopped aboard the Atlantic Wing, which sustained damage to its upper portion only, Simpson said. "All people on the Pac Baroness have been safely transferred," Kay said. There were 21 crew members aboard the Atlantic Wing, Kay said. No injuries were reported. Two Coast Guard helicopters, a jet and the 82-foot cutter Point Judith were dispatched to the accident scene, Simpson said. Three ships from an offshore Texaco oil rig were also summoned to assist, he said. Kay said Coast Guard rescue crews were having some difficulty getting to the crash site because of the fog and low ceiling. "The publication of an interview in Playboy magazine due oat this week. Barbara told reporters today that he expected her testimony to center on a financial settlement she received from Bakker rather than the 1980 sexual encounter. "I think most of the testimony will be about the events of 1984 and 1985 rather than 1980," Barbara said. The 1980 incident was "indisputable. Bakker has admitted it" Barbara had said earlier his client would testify as a government witness with a grant of limited immunity from prosecution. Miss Hahn, 28, has said previously that she agreed to accept $265,000 from PTL in exchange for her silence about the encounter with Bakker in a Florida hotel room, but she only received a small amount of the money before Bakker resigned and the payments were cut off. Bakker resigned as head of the PTL television ministry in March, saying he had been blackmailed over his liaison with Miss Hahn. He turned PTL over to the Rev. Jerry Falwell, and the ministry has filed for reorganization under federal bankrupcy laws. Justice Department investigator Charles Alexander, who is directing the grand jury investigation with Assistant U.S. Attorney Jerry Miller, declined to comment when contacted by telephone at his office. A subpoena of PTL documents, however, shows the investigation will focus on die lavish lifestyles of Bakker, his wife, Tammy, and their close aides. Iran resumes shipping attacks MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) — The tanker war flared in the Persian Gulf as Iran resumed attacks on shipping and Iraq reported its jet fighters fired on a vessel off Iran's vital Kharg Island oil terminal. Meanwhile, Arab League foreign ministers meeting in Tunisia scheduled a Nov. 8 summit meeting in Jordan to discuss the 7-year-old Iran-Iraq war and possible sanc- tions against Iran. A military spokesman in Baghdad, the Iraqi capital, said Iraqi jet fighters attacked a "large maritime target," which usually means a ship, off Iran's Kharg Island oil terminal in the northern gulf Sunday night The planes scored "accurate and effective hits" on the unidentified ship, said the spokesman, who was quoted by the Iraqi News Agency, monitored in Cyprus. There was no word on casualties, and no independent confirmation of the hit. Earlier Sunday, Iranians in a speedboat fired machine guns at the 39,915-ton Saudi Arabian tanker Petroship B, in Iran's first attack on shipping in 10 days. There were no reported injuries and the ship sustained minor damage.
