At least 12 persons were confirmed dead. "This is the biggest and most horrible slide we ever had,” said a radio correspondent, Johannes Stefansson, from the scene. ‘‘Many people are still missing and we don’t know if they are dead.” Civil defense officials said snow sliding from a 2,400-foot-high mountain in a heavy storm Friday engulfed Neskaupstadur, a town of 1,500 people on the shore of a fjord on the coast about 250 miles east of Reykjavik.

On Friday in Chicago’s Cook county criminal court, he was revealed to be Barry P. Stein, for five years a fugitive from charges of aggravated assault against policemen, mob action, resisting arrest and aiding escape. The then-smooth-shaven Stein a 21-year-old Pennsylvania State university student, participated in the "days of rage” in October, 1969. that pitted the militant wing of the Students for a Democratic So- — the Weatherman - against the Chicago ciety group police. Scores were arrested as Loop shop windows splintered and Viet Cong banners fluttered in the heart of the city. Students and police were injured in the wild melees. Charged along with Stein, after what the Illinois crime investigating comm i s s i o n later called "a riot, an insurrection planned and executed by revolutionary youth who are among the most anarchistic in our nation s history ,” were militant leaders Mark Rudd and Bernardine Dohrn But before the eases came to court Stein, Rudd. Dohrn and others went underground. They just disappeared. Stein, whose parents live at Broomall, F’a, surfaced as mild-mannered, efficient Daniel Wight in Brattleboro, a town of 12.000 with an unusually large number of communes in the hills around it. Last October the fugitive decided to end the charade He called a Chicago lawyer, William Martin, to arrange to turn himself in. And Friday, in Judge Philip Romtti’s chambers, Stein finally faced the charges he fled from five years earlier. Hie hearing will be continued Jan. 24. "We are hoping he will get probation.” said Martin, who in conference with Judge Ro-miti cited how Stein had proved himself of great service to Brattleboro, his health center helping to establish child clinics and assisting with family planning. But Prosecutor Nicholas De- John said he wants Stein “to serve some pen time ” Assistant Prosecutor Patricia Bobbs said: "Just taking off like that years ago, jumping bail, then coming back and expecting bail is just too much.” Plea bargaining will continue at Stem's next hearing One of the fugitive’s alleged victims, Police Sgt. George Owen, has not forgiven him Owen attended the hearing, He still has a bump on his bald head that the prosecution claimed Stein put there Oct. ll, 1969. last of the "days of rage.” DeJohn claims he has in evidence a newspaper photograph of Stein standing near the bleeding Owen and holding a bicycle chain “I had grabbed one of the rioters and was trying to bring him in when others attacked me,” Owen told this reporter. "In some ways. I don’t blame them for warning to end the Vietnam war. but tearing Chicago to pieces was not the way to do it. "And I don't see how they could have hoped to achieve social justice by the way they acted. Under the circumstances, I can imagine why Stein would want probation. But I would not be happy if he got it.” Stein was reluctant to talk to this reporter, but he did say he was concerned about the impact of his disclosure on his life at Brattleboro "I want to stay there,” he said. "I want to keep my health center going ” st He No Ho-ho-hoing By These Santas He said be told his ck friends at Brattleboro of old identity "only after I eided to turn myself in.” said he did not keep in touch with his parents while he was under his assumed identity The managing editor of the Brattleboro Reformer. Norman Runyon, said, "We want him to stay.” The director of radio station i yoke incidents W KTV at Brattleboro, Garry children with W’eelock, said, "Vermont is a tolerant state ” He said Brattleboro "was a mecca for radical types over the years. I guess most people here are progressive Republicans, but we have learned to live with the unusual.” .Stein said he intends to return to Brattleboro week charge Friday when he attempted to sell 35 capsules of dyazide to an undercover agent. According to the police account, the officer then offered to buy 500 pills, and Tabor sent his wife to fetch them at their apartment. When she got back to court, she and her husband were arrested. SAN FRANCISCO (AJG -“Ho-ho-ho” is out this year at a Santa placement service * We’ve found you can pro-by frightening Icfiuurcu wuii a sharp, quick sound like ho-ho-ho,” said Barbara Holt, Santa coordinator for W’estern Temporary Services "Instead, we ask for a deep, resonant laugh.
