That’s why I begin with the anatomy of hatred, to explore it, to analyze it, to dissect it.” The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity has tentative plans to hold other “Beyond Hate” gatherings this year and next year in Israel, the Soviet Union, Paris and San Francisco. A PBS series with Bill Moyers as host is also in the works. | J Annexation Is Topic Of Council Meeting The Aiken City Council will hold a special called meeting Monday at 5:15 p.m. in order to receive information on the Kalmia Hill annexation vote, Roland H.

That’s one to be proud of,” capsule communicator Frank Culbertson said. The shuttle, bearing a five-man crew, four crippled rats, 32 fertilized chicken eggs and other experiments, landed on schedule at 6:36 a.m. on a paved runway on Rogers Dry Lake, watched by a near-record 460,000 spectators. “NASA and the country’s happy this morning. It’s a beautiful day in California,” Rear Adm. Richard H. Truly, the space agency’s associate administrator, said after Discovery touched down. “Ifs marvelous people can come out on such a pretty morning and watch it,” Truly added. “I think the country realizes we’re back.” The landing looked perfect, as promised from orbit when shuttle commander Michael L. Coats, a veteran Navy aircraft carrier pilot, radioed “3 wire” to mission control. He referred to the best arresting cable for a plane to snag when landing on the deck of a carrier. NASA television close-ups of the shuttle after its 1.9-million-mile trip showed numerous white marks on the black thermal tiles that protect the shuttle’s underside from the heat of re-entry. But Truly described the damage as “a few minor chips.” “The vehicle is just as clean as it can Cassatt Claims Two Victories At Trials 15,000 Spectators Turn Out For First Leg Of Triple Crown By TONY BAUGHMAN Sports Editor A pair of stablemates made the opening weekend of Aiken’s annual Triple Crown a pleasant one for trainer A.J. (Sandy) Cassatt. In Saturday’s 47th running of the Aiken Training Track Public Trials, two Thoroughbreds trained by Cassatt and boarded in the same stable captured the first two races of the five-race card in front of an estimated crowd of nearly 15,000. Who’s Dancin, a grey gelding owned by Arrowhead Farm, stormed to a 23-second victory in the opening Coward Trophy, a one-quarter mile run for two-year-old colts and geldings. Trials Pictures......................Page    8A, 9A Then, in the one-quarter mile Post Trophy, Winter Gift, a chestnut gelding owned by Llennoco Farms, finished ahead of two unnamed entrants for a winning time of 23-2/5 seconds. The race was for two-year-olds. “(Who’s Dancin) justified our faith in him,” Cassatt said. “He ran today like he did the other day in training.” Winter Gift, Cassatt said, “had been training well. He had been coming to hand the last two or three weeks. . .He was the other horse’s stablemate.” Who’s Dancin, ridden out of the No. 2 post position by Johnny Hamilton, finished ahead of Buckland Farms’ Gallant Partner and Dogwood Stable’s Summer Squall. Summer Squall was the only entrant of the day from Dogwood Stable, which, along with Frank Wright’s Hill ‘n Dale Farm, dominated last year’s Trials. Eddie Bruce rode Winter Gift ahead of unnamed filly owned by Mrs. Willard C. Freeman and another unnamed filly owned by George E. Robb.

In December, the shuttle Atlantis suffered severe tile damage when it was hit by insulation falling off a booster rocket and fuel tank during the launch. The fiveday mission’s main objective, deployment of NASA’s third Tracking and Data Relay Satellite, was accomplished Monday, the day Discovery was launched from Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, Fla. Results of a variety (See DISCOVERY, Page 15A) Strategy Questions Irk Bush By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Two months into his presidency, George Bush is struggling with perceptions that he hit the ground walking and chose a style of governance constrained by worry about policy stumbles. Bush has gone out of his way, in recent speeches and exchanges with reporters, to drive home the message that the only treadmill he’s on is the exercising machine he uses in the White House residence. He chafed at suggestions by critics that his go-slow strategy on BUSH East-West relations gives Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev the upper hand in world public opinion, saying “I am not going to be pushed into speedy action because Mr. Gorbachev gives a compelling speech at the United Nations.” He undertook an almost painstaking explanation of why he ordered time-consuming reviews of both foreign and defense strategy, saying “we’ve got to map a strategy.” But administration officials acknowledge that Bush’s pre-inaugural decision to conduct such reassessments contributed to an image problem once he settled into office. (See STRATEGY, Page 14A) Nuclear Crossroad Will Another Nuclear Plant Be Built In U.S.? By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Ten years after the Three Mile Island reactor accident in Pennsylvania, nuclear power in America is approaching a critical crossroad. Critics say the nuclear era should be ended in the 1990s to avoid unnecessary financial and safety risks. Supporters say the industry must be rejuvenated to preserve an alternative to growing dependence on fossil fuels such as oil. Increasingly, people on both sides are suggesting that unless a comeback is started soon, the industry will degenerate to the point of no return. Suppliers of nuclear plant components already are dropping out of the business and the pool of university-trained nuclear engineers is shrinking. “It does atrophy, and it is more serious than it might seem,” said Larry Hobart, executive director of the American Public Power Association, a Washington-based trade group representing publicly owned utilities, many of which rely on nuclear power. Whatever the long-range outcome, few believe atomic power will contribute much, if anything, to the added generating capacity that experts say will be needed over the next decade to meet the nation’s growing appetite for electricity.
