Formal session cut short for private lakeside talks OF.NEVA (AP) - President Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev today convened the first superpower summit in six years but cut short the formal talks, instead opting for private discussions without aides in a lakeside pool house. Amid a tight news blackout imposed by both sides, the two leaders held two rounds of formal meetings in a 19th century mansion on Lake Geneva. A Soviet spokesman said a good atmosphere" prevailed in the morning session and an American spokesman said it 'continued through the afternoon." In an unexpected development. Reagan ended the afternoon working meeting 50 minutes early and suggested that Gorbachev accompany him on a walk. Donning coats on the chilly afternoon, they headed for the lake, joined only by interpreters. After a five-minute stroll, the two leaders entered a lakeside poolhouse, where logs were blazing in the fireplace. They continued their talks for about 50 minutes. It was Reagan's second private meeting with Gorbachev. They also met alone in the morning for almost an hour, four times longer than had been scheduled, before the opening of the talks. Reagan and Gorbachev agreed that the summit outcome depends on mutual willingness to reconcile differences. "We must achieve decisions together," Gorbachev said as he sat down with Reagan in the front room of the villa for the morning meeting. "If someone (views) I am not convinced it will look like a decision. We are very much interdependent." When the remark was translated into English, Reagan said, "I agree." Presidential spokesman Larry Speakes described the private talks in the afternoon as "an unex- pected development. The two are spending more time together." It was not explained how arrangements had been set up for the meeting, and Speakes jokingly said the site was "probably one of those pool houses that has a 24-hour-a-day fire." The afternoon agenda specified that the talks would focus on arms control. The presence of Paul Nitze, Reagan's chief arms control adviser, in the formal afternoon session suggested that they stuck with the planned topic. By mutual agreement, both sides imposed a news blackout on summit developments. Secretary of State George Shultz and other senior officials accompanying Reagan canceled news briefings and television appearances. Reagan described the initial meeting as "very businesslike." Asked if they had settled anything, the president replied, "We left that See Back Page, SUMMIT t Wheatland dumps landfill site again Action kills Ostrom proposal, lawyer says By HAROLD KRUGER AD Staff Writer The players were different, but the outcome weis the same as the Wheatland City Council last night once again turned up its collective nose at the proposed Ostrom Road sanitary landfill. By a 4-1 vote, with Councilwoman Juanita Neyens dissenting, the council rejected an amendment to the Bi-County Solid Waste Plan that would have designated a 260-acre Ostrom Road site for the new landfill for Sutter and Yuba counties. The site would have replaced the current landfill in East Marysville, which will reach capacity in five to seven years. Councilmembers Ken Kesterson, Dewayne Hart, Margaret Luyster and Albert Osborne supported the motion disapproving the amendment. The council's action effectively kills the Ostrom Road site. "If the city remains this way and doesn't wish to negotiate with the Bi-County Solid Waste Authority, that's the effect of the action," said Phillip Cooke, an attorney for Yuba-Sutter Disposal Inc., owner of the Ostrom Road property.

Yesterday, he reimbursed the city $236.68 for four badges ordered last year, but city records show that taxpayers spent $201.60 for five other badges he ordered in 1982 and 1983. Huntley last night said he "might have made a mistake" in ordering extra badges, which are similar to those issued to the city's police officers. Councilmen are given the badges to satisfy a state law requiring that they have some form of identification. The former Mormon bishop paid the $236.68 yesterday, in the wake of inquiries by The Yuba-Sutter Appeal-Democrat into purchases made by city councilmen, including $72.08 in office supplies charged to a city account by Councilman Daniel Ferrari. Ferrari paid the city for the* supplies last Thursday, two weeks after the purchases were referred to a council committee by Mayor Harold Sperbeck to determine if the purchases "were proper." the mayor said. 5m Back Page, COUNCIL | Waite returns to Beirut for more hostage talks BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) - Terry Waite, the Archbishop of Canterbury's special envoy, said today he has "very important things to say" to the kidnappers holding American hostages in Lebanon. It is the second time in a week Waite will hold negotiations with the Americans' captors. He met with the kidnappers last week. Waite flew to Lebanon from Paris aboard a Middle East Airlines plane, which landed more than an hour behind schedule at 9.20 a.m. EST at Beirut International Airport. Officials said the flight was delayed because or technical problems, but did not elaborate. "I have very important things to say to them (the kidnappers.) I'm not prepared to say publicly what I need to say to them in private," he said at a news conference today. "I hope those who have responsibility (for the hostages) will see what an opportune time this is now for a major move forward; not just for limited causes, but for greater causes," he said without elaboration. Waite added at the news conference in the lobby of West Beirut's Commodore Hotel, "I value my contacts with the group holding the four American hostages and I would like them to know I have important See Back Page, HOSTAOfS | Terry Waite Back to Beirut Court upholds property tax speedup Weathw SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A 1983 law that has increased property tax collections by several hundred million dollars by speeding up assessment of newly sold or constructed property has been upheld by a state appeals court. The 1st District Court of Appeal rejected claims that the law was a property tax increase forbidden by Proposition 13. The 1978 proposition only changed the timing of tax valuation and col- lection, the court said. In a decision that was released late Friday and obtained Monday, the three-judge panel also upheld a provision of the law that gave some home-builders an exemption from the speeded-up assessments by delaying reassessment of property held for sale until it is sold or occupied. The law was passed in 1983 to help pay off a state deficit, created when Gov. George Deukme- jian and the Legislature deadlocked over tax increases. The state Board of Equalization, which oversees local property tax collections, estimated that the law would increase tax revenues by $272 million in 1983-84 and $444 million in 1984-85.

"New industry - no matter whether it is at Yuba County Airport or the Garden Highway Industrial Park - will help the entire area." Southard said during the regular council meeting. "I think all of the public agencies should pledge to work more closely together " Southard, who has been on the council since 1978, was the unanimous choice to act as mayor of the city for the next year. It will be his second stint as mayor after having served in the honorary position in 1982. The council voted 5-0 to appoint Southard to succeed Councilman Chuck Pappageorge as mayor. Councilwoman Jean Cellini was the council's unanimous choice as mayor pro tern. Also on the Yuba City Council are Lawrence Mark and George Garcia. Southard said he plans on working closely with the "public and private sector" in trying to attract new industry to the area. "For years we have operated under the myth that our high unemployment rite was because of the migratory nature of the agricultural industry," he said. "But the truth is there is a serious lack of employment opportunities in the area."
