Reagan: Vote hope, not fear
United Press International
WASHINGTON — President
Reagan is urging Americans to
be hopeful, not fearful in next
Tuesday’s election, which is
shaping up as a test of his fiscal
During the next six days,
Reagan will spread a message of
optimism across the country,
seeking to dispel thoughts of
economic despair that could
mean defeat for Republicans.
Reagan departs Thursday
for a two-day campaign swing
through Wyoming, Mont., New,
Utah and N.M. to stump for
GOP Senate candidates, several
of whom are in tighter races
than they had anticipated.
With the National Republi
can Committee picking up the
bill, Reagan is to appear on na
tional television Sunday and
Monday in a final pitch for Re
publican candidates.
Aides contend Reagan has
campaigned where he could be
most effective. In choosing the
West, they selected the area
where he is most popular and
will not hurt GOP candidates.
There was no such danger
Tuesday, when Reagan flew to
North Carolina, a bastion of
conservatism, to campaign for
all 11 GOP congressional candi
dates on the state ticket.
Reagan s»t the tone of his fin
al campaigt push during his
2'/'-hour visi to Raleigh, where
he stood sidt-by-side with the
state’s two conservative senators,
Jesse Helms aid John Hast, and
accused his crib s of undermin
ing economic recovery for poli
tical gain.
Reagan coined a new slogan
for the last days of he campaign
at a GOP rally be 1 ore several
thousand Republicans who gave
him a wild ovation or his arrival
but were more subdued in their
response to his remans.
“When you’re in tint voting

Reagan charged his critics
harp about high unemployment
while ignoring progress made in
reducing interest rates, infla
tion, taxes and the rate of gov
ernment spending.
And he ascribed political mo
tives to their arguments that his
economic policies have failed.
"The real truth is our critics
are playing with the people’s
fears, trying to scare them into
believing that things will get
worse so their own political for
tunes will get lielter,” he said.

Lethal compound
detected: EPA ’lax’
United Press International
one of the most dangerous man
made chemical compounds and
a key ingredient of the Vietnam-
era defoliant Agent Orange,
now is believed present in 25 to
50 sites in Missouri — posing a
major, longterm health concern.
The Reagan administration is
studying the problem, but
Wednesday a non-profit group
released internal Environmen
tal Protection Agency docu
ments and claimed the agency is
considering a response so lax it is
The memos released by the
Environmental Defense Fund
indicate EPA is considering
cleanup actions that would leave
the cancer-causing agent in the
soil at levels 1 (),()<)<) to 1 ()(),()()()
times higher than the cleanup
levels of the much publicized
toxic waste site at Love Canal in
New York.
An EPA of ficial wrote in one
memo that such a high level
would amount to using humans
as “guinea pigs."
. “We’re still assessing how se-
ftnis it is,” Rita Lavelle, assistant
Pi’A administrator, said.
The problem only reached
het desk six or seven weeks ago.
No decision has been made on
cleanup levels and whether it is
an emergency priority, she said.
“Tvo weeks ago," Byron Nel
son, chief EPA spokesman, said.
“EPA s’arted a sampling prog
ram in several areas in Missouri
and at tins time we are not pre
pared to make any decision on
levels of dioxin."
He said studying various op
tions is “standard practice in the
agency and it should not be an
indication of where a dioxin
level will be set.”
But one EPA option memo
released by the EDF suggested a
stringent cleanup level be used
in preliminary actions, saying
the advantages of such a move
“allows preparation of public for
possible change it> policy."
EPA officials said that 12
pounds of dioxin. — minute
amounts of which nuf be lethal
