GENEVA Superpower nuclear arms talks resumed
Thursday with a luncheon meeting between U.S. delegation
head Max Kampelman and his new Soviet counterpart, Yuli
The two delegation leaders met privately at Soviet
request, instead of heading a meeting of all three top
negotiators from each side, which normally marks the
beginning of a round.
The talks have been bogged down from the start by
disagreement, among other things, over U.S. Strategic
Defense Initiative research for a space-based defense
against nuclear attack, popularly called "Star Wars."
U.S. spokesman Terry Shroeder said he had no informa
tion on when the next session in the seventh round of arms
talks would be. "I have nothing for the news media on this
as yet," he said. Vorontsov greeted each other warmly in front of reporters.

HOUSTON The astronauts named
to NASA's first post-Challenger flight
crew said Thursday they are eager to
lead NASA back into space and plan to
visit manufacturing plants so space
craft technicians can meet "eye to eye"

"The spirit of Challenger is with us,"
said Navy Capt. Frederick Hauck, chief
of the five-man crew. He said NASA is
"stronger, wiser," than before last Jan
uary's accident, but cautioned that
another disaster could end manned
U.S. manned space flight.
Hauck and his crew met with repor
ters to discuss their mission, a four-day
flight aboard Discovery that is sched
uled to begin Feb. 18, 1988.
"We're all extremely pleased to be
named to this crew. It's what we joined
NASA to do," said Hauck. "We're look
ing forward to getting back to the busi
ness of flying in space."
He said space flight carries inherent
risks, and that another accident could
doom the program.
"I really think that might be the end
of the manned space program" he said,
referring to the possibility of another
Hauck acknowledged that the Feb
ruary 1988 launch data was an optimis
tic one and might slip. "It's going to be
very difficult to make the Feb. 18
launch date and I think any of the
managers would say that," he said.

Americans remember, pay tribute
to leader who had 'a dream'
The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was remembered on the
anniversary of his birth Thursday in cities around the
country as an inspiring leader whose non-violent campaigns
helped free both blacks and whites from a legacy of racism.
"He never reached his 40th birthday, yet during his short
life span he touched the lives of every American and helped
dismantle the legal vestiges of discrimination and racism,"
President Reagan said in a television address made
available to schools nationwide.
King, leader of the civil rights movement of the late 1950s
and early '60s, was assassinated in April 1968 in Memphis,
Tenn., at the age of 39. For spearheading the movement, the
Baptist minister was awarded the 1964 Nobel Peace Prize.
Although King's birthday was Thursday, the federal
holiday and many state holidays in his honor will be
observed Monday. It is the second year for the federal
The anniversary of King's birth was marked in cities
around the nation with speeches praising King and calling
for continuation of his work, with showings of films about
the civil rights movement, with wreath-layings, concerts
and plays, and with prayer gatherings.
A plaza at the city-county office complex in Omaha, Neb.,
was dedicated to King; members of the Tennessee Senate
observed a moment of silence; a 1 2 hour program of music,
prayer and speeches in King's memory was scheduled at a
Columbus, Ohio, church; and at a Buffalo, N.Y., elementary
school, students sang "Happy Birthday" at an assembly on
King's contributions to America
In his speech, Reagan said the memory of King "should
serve not just as an inspiration to black Americans, but to
each and every one of us, to stand firm for our principles and
to strive to better ourselves and our country."
