(Sun staff photo by Angle Bracey) World news Four tankers weigh anchor off Kuwait MANAMA, Bahrain (AP) — Four tankers weighed anchor off Kuwait this morning and left on their return voyage through the Persian Gulf, hours after a trio of U.S. Navy-escorted tankers arrived at Kuwait's offshore oil terminal. The departing convoy apparently rendezvoused with the same U.S. warship escort that had guarded the three tankers which arrived in Kuwait late Friday. But that could not be confirmed. A source close to the state-run Kuwait Oil Tanker Co., which owns the tankers, confirmed that the four ships had left their anchorage off the Al-Ahmadi terminal. The source, a gulf-based shipping executive who insisted on anonymity, refused to comment further. The exact time of departure was not immediately known. But observers who were near Al-Ahmadi reported that at 4:30 a.m. local time, the four tankers had disappeared from anchorage. It had been expected that three gas tankers, along with the supertanker Bridgeton. would make the return trip down the waterway shortly after the latest convoy arrived. All'the tankers have been re-registered to sail under the U.S. flag, and are entitled to U.S. naval escorts, under a Reagan administration plan to protect them from Iranian attacks. National news 'NTSB \vindingdown investigation ROMULUS, Mich, i AP) — Investigators in the crash of Northwest Flight 255 are shifting their focus from the scene to the laboratory, where they face conflicting evidence on whether the wing flaps and slats had been set for takeoff. The National Transportation Safety Board has uncovered "conflicting and confusing" evidence about the flaps and slats of the jet in the nation's second-worst airline disaster, NTSB spokeswoman Rachel Halterman said Friday. The Phoenix. Ariz.-bound plane crashed Sunday just after takeoff from Detroit Metropolitan Airport, killing at least 155 people. Lonetree to appeal espionage conviction QUANT1CO, Va. <'APi — Sgt. Clayton Lonetree. the first Marine convicted of spying, could be sentenced to life in prison for passing secrets to the Soviets after falling in love with a Russian translator at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow.

"We shall appeal and we shall fight this to the end, and we hope, in the end. justice will prevail." said defense attorney William Kunstler.

Name _ - i I PtwrW ._. ... ._ _ , . . . . I Address City Speed limit change considered Baytown Traffic Commission is expected to consider reducing the speed limit on McKinney Road, from Loop 201 to Cedar Bayou Road, when it meets at 7 p.m. Monday at City Hall. The commission was originally scheduled to consider the request at its July meeting; however, the meeting was canceled because a quorum was not present. Bill Cornelius, the city's director of planning and traffic, explained before the last meeting that a one-fourth-mile stretch, located on the north end of the road, is closed because of Loop 201 construction. Baytown Assistant Police Chief Bob Merchant is asking that the speed limit be reduced from 40 mph to 30 mph because of this construction. Cornelius explained that the 40-mph limit was set after studying the travel speed of 200 vehicles in that area and discovering that 85 percent of the vehicles were traveling at 40 mph. _ In other business, the commission is scheduled to: -f Change a stop sign at Nolan and Largo to a yield sign because of complaints from residents of the area who believe the stop sign is being ignored. -r-Making the street in front of 604 and 606 Willow a no-parking area. Homeowners at those two addresses are requesting the change because of a problem with motorists parking their cars in front of their houses. -rRemoving the stop signs on Columbia at Harold, Pamela and Grantham and placing them on Harold. Pamela and Grantham at the Columbia street in- tersections. Residents feel this change will stop motorists from using the subdivision as a throughfare. Consider cutting medians on Massey-Tompkins Road near North Main and on West Baker near Garth. Requests for these cuts have come from owners of convenience stores in that area who feel the medians would provide greater accessibility to their stores.
