Yesterday's Big 4 - 5871. ABC WASHINGTON (AP) - To those he covered and to those he competed against, Frank Reynolds was, above all, a reporter who cared. He defined his job in simple terms: "To help people understand what's going on' Reynolds, 59, the chief anchorman of ABCs "World News Tonight," died early yesterday after three months of battling viral hepatitis brought on, a colleague said, by "a bad blood transfusion." He also had multiple myeloma, a form of bone cancer. Reynolds was a familiar figure in broadcasting for more than 30 years, anchoring such live news . events as the assassination attempts on President Reagan and Pope John Paul II, space shuttle launches and landings, and national political con- . ventions. He co-anchored the late night specials during 'the Iran hostage crisis that led to creation of the ABC "Nightline" program, and he played a major role in development of the multiple anchor format used by "World News Tonight." President Reagan called Reynolds "a warm, considerate friend," and ordered that requirements be waived so that Reynolds, a soldier in World War II, can be buried in 1 Arlington National Cemetery. Mrs. Reagan's press secretary said the Frank Reynolds I j -aCTw 'it-' Frank Reynolds first lady and perhaps the president will attend the funeral. Reynolds and his wife, Henrietta, had been friends with the Reagans since he did a story in 1976 on how Reagan handled his failure to win the Republican presidential nomination. The press secretary quoted Mrs. Reagan as saying, in tears, "He was everything a newsman should be, professional and fair. He was wonderful. He was one in a million." extolled The first lady telephoned Mrs. Reynolds yesteraay morning w vey her condolences. Reynolds died at 12:40 a.m. in Washington's Sibley Hospital. A few hours later, ABC had some of his colleagues and competitors on its morning news-talk show. "Frank Reynolds reported the news as though it were happening to him," said Ted Koppel of ABC's "Nightline." "Frank felt other people's pain very deeply and he showed the pain of others very deeply, and what we now know about him in retrospect is just to what extent he succeeded in hiding his own pain. He showed everybody's pain but his own." Reynolds underwent surgery on March 17 for a leg broken when he slipped on ice. The hepatitis was diagnosed on April 29. Dan Rather, anchor of the CBS Evening News, said "the Reynolds competition was always class all the way ... If you were against Frank Reynolds, you knew that you were going to be beaten some of the time, but you would never be beaten unfairly." Reynolds leaves his wife and five sons. One son, Dean, is the White House correspondent for the Cable News Network. The funeral will be Saturday after services in St. Matthew's Cathedral. PUC orders bus firm to stop operating The state Public Utility Commission has ordered Shortway Suburban Lines Inc. to stop operating a bus line between communities in Washington County and Downtown Pittsburgh. The PUC ordered Suburban Bus Lines Inc. instead to resume service to about 1,800 passengers. The PUC had granted Shortway temporary permission last October to operate the service until hearings could be held and a decision reached. Shortway had purchased the assets of Suburban for $1,060,850 earlier in October. The commission said in a decision mailed to both companies yesterday, "We find that the applicant . Shortway had failed to demonstrate that it has the financial capacity to render reliable and responsible service to the public." Suburban was ordered to resume service immediately. But Arthur Wagner, attorney for Shortway, called the PUC remarks about financial capacity "a total joke." He said the ruling probably will be appealed to state Commonwealth Court. Michael Nemec, a PUC administrative law judge who conducted hearings in the case, had recommended that Shortway continue as the carrier. He was reversed by the commission June 10, with Chairman Linda Taliaferro, a Republican, and Michael Johnson, a Democratic commissioner, voting against Shortway. Commissioner James H. Cawley, a Democrat, voted for Shortway. Meteorological record Highest temp. July 21 Pollution index since 1874 was 99 In 1885. rvwminwn NA Lowest temp.
