New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - July 2, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas Gromyko Soviet president MOSCOW (AP) — Andrei Gromyko, the Soviet Union’s foreign minister for the past 28 years, was elected president today at a national Parliament session after being nominated by Communist Party chief Mikhail S. Gorbachev. Georgia party chief Eduard A. Shevardnadze, 57, a new full member of the Politburo who has a reputation for being tough on corruption, was named to replace Gromyko, 75, in the Foreign Ministry post. Gromyko’s election was a major departure from the recent Kremlin practice of having the party leader also hold the title of chief of state. There had been rumors in Moscow that Gromyko might be named president, but most Western observers discounted them. There was speculation after the announcement that the naming of Gromyko amounted to a graceful exit of a well-respected member of the Kremlin “old guard’’ as the Moscow leadership swings to a new generation. However, it also showed that Gorbachev, who has made domestic economic issues his prime concern, is now ready to take control of the field of foreign policy, although Gromyko as president is still expected to be a major figure on the international scene. Gorbachev, 54, nominated Gromyko at a session which capped two days of major leadership changes, including the ouster of one-time power contender Grigory V. Romanov from the ruling Politburo. The official report of Monday’s session of the party Central Committee said the Politburo removed Romanov, 62, for “health reasons’’ at his own request, but it was clear that he had been ousted. Shevardnadze, 57, was elevated from alternate to voting status on the Politburo at the Monday session. Gromyko did not become a full member of the Politburo until 1973,16 years after he took over the Foreign Ministry portfolio. In Washington, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Anita Stockman said the government had no immediate comment on Gromyko’s election. Gromyko was unanimously elected by the 1,500 deputies to the Supreme Soviet following Gorbachev’s brief nominating speech. Gromyko expressed “sincere gratitude” to Gorbachev. “The decision adopted on this proposal deeply touched me,” Gromyko said. “It shows great confidence by the Supreme Soviet.”T.G.I.R.D.

Shiite terrorists who hijacked a TWA jetliner on June 14 had demanded the release of 735 Lebanese in exchange for the release of the Americans. The 39 were freed Sunday. Israel captured the Lebanese during its withdrawal from south Lebanon, accusing them of plotting or carrying out attacks on Israeli units. It freed 31 of them June 24. Rabin said Monday that at a meeting of the Cabinet’s security committee, “I proposed the release of 300 of the Lebanese either tomorrow or the day after tomorrow, as a continuation of our declared policy since we brought them to Israel on April 2.” “We made it clear then that they were brought on a temporary basis to Israel, that we intend to release them, that we would release them in accordance with the development of the security situation in southern Lebanon,” Rabin told an international conference on counterterrorism at Tel Aviv University. Israel radio said the 10-member committee unanimously agreed to Rabin’s proposal. Rabin stressed that Israel had not struck any deal to free the prisoners in exchange for the Americans and that Israel had not received any requests from the United States to do so.Teachers in spaceTexas woman among those picked for shuttle ride next January ^.imtiieiiiKi'iiiiiiitiiiitn it 11 nm in itniii i i i iiii i iiiii i'iimiini'mTm'i iiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiii'mimiimmimiii {New Braunfels Pediatric AssociatesTimothy W.

The teachers, six women and four men, were named Monday as the finalists in a competition to pick a teacher to fly on the shuttle Challenger on its mission to study Hailey's Comet from Earth orbit next January. The IO became instant heroes to their colleagues. Dropping in on the National Education Association's annual convention, they were given a standing ovation by 7,500 delegates and the Idaho delegation began identifying itself as from “the space state.” Two of the finalists are from Idaho. The teachers were picked from a group of 114 semi-finalists. The competition began with more than 10,000 applications. The winner will undergo 120 hours of training and fly on a mission that will launch a huge communications satellite and study Hailey’s Comet with astronomy instruments cast loose into orbit and retrieved a few days later. Next Sunday, the finalists will report to the Johnson Space Center in Houston, where astronauts train, for a week of physical examinations and space simulations. The group will return to Washington on July 12 where 16 top NASA officials will interview each candidate and make a final recommendation. The finalists: Richard Methia, 40, an English teacher at New Bedford, Mass., High School; Kathleen Anne Beres, 36, a biology teacher at Kenwood High School, Baltimore County, Md.; Robert S. Foerster, 34, a sixth-grade math, computer and science instructor at Cumberland Elementary School in West Lafayette, Ind.; Judith Marie Garcia, 44, a French and Spanish teacher at Thomas Jefferson School for Science and Technology in Alexandria, Va. Peggy J. Lathlaen, 34, a teacher at Westwood Elementary School in Friendswood, Texas; David M. Marquart. 43, a business and computer science teacher at Boise, Idaho, High School; Sharon Christa McAuliffe, 36, a social studies teacher at Concord, N.H., High School: and Michael W. Metcalf, 39, who teaches government and geography, grades 7 through 12. at Hazen Union School in Hardwick, Vt. Barbara R. Morgan, 33, a second-grade teacher at McCall-Donnelly Elementary Sc hool in McCall. Idaho; and Niki Mason Wenger, 45. who teaches gifted 7th to 9th graders at Vandevender Junior High School in Parkersburg. VV.Va., and also conducts seminars in computer education. James M. Beggs, the space agency’s administrator. will make the final selection of one mission specialist-teacher and a backup. The announcement is expected late in July, possibly by President Reagan. Corpus Christi gets nod for Navy homeport WASHINGTON (AP) - The Navy’s coveted homeport for the USS Wisconsin will be placed in Corpus Christi, Texas. U.S. Sen. Uoyd Bentsen announced today. “I am advised that Corpus Christi has been selected as the homeport for the battleship USS Wisconsin. This is really good news for Texas. It culminates a long, hard cooperative effort by the people of Corpus Christi and their local, state and federal representatives,” Bentsen said. Corpus Christi was one of six cities considered as finalists for the prize, which conies with HOO million worth of construction, 7,500 sailors, 3,000 civilian jobs and an annual payroll of $50 million. The other cities were Pensacola, Fla.; Houston-Galveston; I .ake Charles, La.; Pasagoula, Miss.; and Mobile, Ala. “I have been informed that some of the vessels in the battleship’s surface action group will be assigned to Gulf Coast ports other than Corpus Christi,” said Bentsen, D-Texas. "This is a tremendous economic shot in the arm for Corpus Christi and all of South Texas," Sen. Phil Gramm, R-Texas, said today. Houston-Galveston reportedly was nixed from consideration last week because of problems in reaching solid ground to set a foundation at Galveston’s Fort Point and because of the site’s distance from deep water. The factor that tipped the scales to Corpus Christi, Gramm said, "was the willingness of its own citizens to vote a bond issue to raise their own taxes to put $25 million into helping build the base.” Gramm estimated the annual economic impact of the port at $130 million and said it will generate $9 million rn local and state taxes. Loyd Neal, project chairman of the South Texas Homeporting Task Force, said Monday that Corpus Christi had a good proposal because its Ingleside Point would not require dredging. Corpus Christi residents in April approved a $2j million bond issue to offset costs, and the state committed $25 nullion to attract tile Navy, he pointed out. The city also has been host of a naval air station for more than 40 years. The USS Wisconsin was commissioned in 1944, but has remained at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard since 1959 The Navy estimates it will cost $454.4 million to refit the battleship and $60 million a year to operate it. The refitting should take about two years, officials have said. The fleet would include a guided missile cruiser, a guided missile destroyer, a guided missile frigate and reserve missile frigates and a destroy er tender to provide maintenance for the ships. Rat transplants raise hope for burn victims, amputees LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rats given a powerful anti-rejection drug lived to old age with transplanted legs, say researchers who believe the drug will save human burn patients and may someday allow limb transplants in people. While the rats were unable to walk normally because of problems with nerve-muscle connections, the drug cyclosponne prevented rejection of the transplanted limbs, said Kirby S. Black, a surgery instructor at the University of California at Irvine. In one of a six-year series of studies involving about 300 rats — each of which received a transplanted hind leg after amputation — seven ot nine rats lived to old age without rejecting the limbs, Black said. One rat received cyclosponne for only 20 days but lived 735 days with a transplanted hind leg before dying of old age — more than six times the previous longevity record, immunologist Charles W. Hewitt said. "It’s the most significant contribution to homotransplantation of limbs since the early 1960s, when we were trying it in dogs” without success, said Dr. Harry Buncke, a microsurgeon at the University of California at San Francisco. Homotransplantation refers to transplants among members of tile same species. Doctors in Brazil did transplant a human hand in 1964, but the hand was rejected, Hewitt said. The rat experiments show that it is possible to use the powerful antirejection drug to prevent the immune system from rejecting skin, bone, tendon and other components of transplanted limbs, said Dr. Bruce Achauer, a UCI Medical Center plastic surgeon who collaborated with Black, Hewitt and Dr. David Furnas CLINT TASI WOOD PALI NIIX'H LIMITED ENGAGEMENT FEATURE TIMES 2.00. 4:15. r THURSDAY 7 OO. 915 DISCOUNTS AT 4:15 ANO 4:20 jgjgiurcT KID SHOW Tomboy and Tho Champ" llmniilmn (W «M TW !.«•< atip TV trvarWram trip* TW k«Mr« Irrwarr kwt NWI Jota IV aWain GQONteS PG 3 FEATURE TIMES 2:05. 4:20. 7.05. 1:20 I Antonio 625 4411 Experimental limb transplants in people could be tried within two years, Achauer said.
