The declared purpose of the alert, which was well publicized in advance, was to test the paring to launch a new Middle last war. It said Syria was prepared to cope with any sur- irise attack. Up Seaway Tied as Ship Rams Bridge PORT ROBINSON, Out. (AP) say the St. Lawrence Seaway may be blocked for two weeks while the wreckage of a bridge is cleared from the Wei- land Canal. Passage of more than ISO ships may be delayed. The American freighter Steel- ton rammed the bridge five miles north of "Welland, Ont, early Sunday. The 120-foot-high structure and one of its two 300- ton counterweights plunged into the canal, which connects Lakes Erie and Ontario. The other weight smashed into a roadway, sending tremors through surrounding homes. The bridge master was injured and a Steelton crew member suf- fered shock. The only other water route between the lakes is a branch of the Erie Barge Canal. But it can only handle small pleas- ure craft and barges towed or pushed by trucks. The Steelton, owned by Beth- lehem Steel, was enroute from Buffalo to Contrecoeur, Que., to take on a load of ore. Damage to the freighter was estimated at about million. A seaway spokesman said re- placing the bridge could cost million and it was not certain if it could be rebuilt. He said clearing tlie tons of debris out of the 27-foot-deep canal was "a major job in itself." Campaign Trail Dobbin: Increase School Funding Norris Dobbin, Republican candidate 'for state represent- ative in the 24th district, told a group of students at Pinicor Ridge park Sunday he would work for increased funding for schools. "Public schools help sift the 'winners' from the 'losers'. They put some children on the learn- ing track leading to jobs anc others on the track that ends in failure and unemployment. "Some of 'you were called cul- turally deprived by many edu- cators and blamed for their fail- ures. But I object. It is not ihvays the children who fail the school, but schools who Parents and educators must make sure they find a way to help each and every child' in school." Dobbin told the young people that the only way public con fidence can'be restored in the political process is for the pub- lic to become actively involvec in that process. "When you go home tonight ask your mom and dad who their state representative is Eighty percent will not know This is what we must change." The 25th district includes parts of southeast Cedar Rapids, southern Linn county and northern Johnson county. the homes and fail the children.
