16-SUNDAY, AUGUST 2,1987 THE UKIAH DAILY JOURNAL' Tree spiking would be federal offense WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. Sen. James McClure has introduced legislation that. would make the deliberate booby trapping of harvestable timber a federal offense. "The work of a logger is dangerous enough without terrorists in the woods," McClure, R-Idaho, said. McClure contended tree spiking is condoned by some environmental groups. The practice involves driving spikes or hails through trees earmarked for harvesting, sending bits of metal flying when the tree is cut. No tree spiking has been reported in Idaho, but McClure noted that a mill worker in Mendocino County was seriously in- jured May 8 when a mill handsaw struck a spoke in a log he was cutting. In June, spikes were found by loggers in trees in Siskiyou National Forest near Grants Pass, Ore. In another incident, an anonymous letter warned the U.S. Forest Service that spikes were driven into trees scheduled for harvest from the Colville National Forest' in northeastern Washington. McClure's bill Would designate tree spiking that results in injury or death as a federal felony, punishable by up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $20,000. Second offenses would be punishable by up to 25 years in prison and a maximum fine of $100,000. Reagan's half-inch cancer removed 6y SUSANNE M. 9CHAFER • WASHINGTON (AP) — President Reagan, described as being in "in great spirits," is on the mend at the White House after physicians cut a half-inch skin cancer from the tip of his nose. Daring a three-hour procedure Friday at Bethesda Naval Hospital, a seven-doctor team excised the cancer, known as a basal cell carcinoma, and closed the wound with 20 stitches. "The surgery went extremely well," Col. "John Mutton, Reagan's physician, said in a statement issued after the president returned to the White House on Friday evening. Mutton said Reagan will return to work Monday and the stitches will be removed in five to seven days. Reagan, a beige bandage covering his nose, smiled and waved upon his return to his residence, calling out to reporters, "I feel fine." Because of the surgery, the president and his wife Nancy canceled their usual trip to Camp David and planned to spend a quiet weekend at the White House. Reagan's weekly radio address was taped in advance, and was to be broadcast today, his spokesman said. "President Reagan is in great spirits. He is in excellent health and was laughing and joking with staff upon his return to the White House," Hutton said in his statement. The physician said Reagan will take a pain medication, such as Tylenol, and on Monday could take off the bandage covering most of his nose. It was the third time Reagan has had a skin cancer removed from his nose, but the first time his doctors employed a microscopic technique in a hospital setting. Presidential spokesman Martin Fitzwater said physicians determined that the wound caused by the excision was small enough to be closed with sutures, rather than with a skin graft. Hutton said the procedure took nearly two hours, and another 45 minutes to close the wound. "The prognosis is good," said Dr. Perry Robins, president of the New York-based Skm Cancer Foundation, after being told about the White House report. In 1985, Reagan had skin cancers removed from his nose in two separate procedures. FfU day marked the first time doctors made use of the so-called "Mohs" procedure in a hospital setting Using that technique, surgeons sliced two thin slivers of tissue from Reagan's nose with a scalpel and immediately examined them under a microscope to look for cancerous cells. The second layer of skin removed was free of cancer cells, the statement said. The surgery was performed with a local anesthetic —an injection of the drugs xylocaine and epinephrine—and Reagan remained conscious throughout the procedure, Fitzwater said. jCPenney NOV. 11-25, 1887 $90015* t dWwU ^ Double occupancy u.
