Dense smoke billowed from the mammoth King’s Cross station, where five lines of the Underground system connect with British Rail in tercity services. Ambulances with si rens blaring ferried the dead and in jured to hospitals. Gordon White, a spokesman for London Fire Brigade, said 32 people were confirmed dead in the fire that broke out during evening rush hour. He said about 30 others were badly burned and 50 sustained less severe injuries, such as smoke inhalation. The British Broadcasting Corp. said without attribution that the death toll could reach 40. Firefighters equipped with breathing apparatus burrowed into smoke-filled tunnels searching for anyone trapped in the labyrinth. A man accompanied by his wife and child said: “All the firemen were going down into the Underground. We saw a woman and a man coming up. The man had all his hair burned off and his face was black, and the woman was screaming.’ Police Superintendent David Fitz simmons said, “No one who was down there where the fire started could possibly be living.” The fire began at 7:36 p.m. under a wooden escalator, but its cause was not known. It was the worst disaster on the London Underground system since 43 people were killed ana 74 injured when a train crashed into a wall at Moorgate station on Feb. 28, 1975. King’s Cross is a vast complex built in 1851-52. Five subway lines go to King’s Cross: the Northern, Circle, Metropolitan, Piccadilly and Victoria. The fire was brought under con trol within two hours, but White said smoke still filled the station. Press Association, Britain’s do mestic news agency, said 30 people were feared trapped in the terminal at one stage but White said late Wednesday night it was not known how many remained in the station. President contributed to deception of Iran-Contra affair, officials report WASHINGTON (AP) — Presi dent Reagan contributed to a mas sive deception of Congress and the public in the Iran-Contra affair and bears responsibility for thwarting the law by allowing zealots to seize policy control, congressional investi gators concluded Wednesday. “These committees found no di rect evidence suggesting that the president was a knowing participant in the effort to deceive Congress and the American public,” the Senate and House investigating panels wrote. “But the president’s actions and statements contributed to the deception. “The ultimate responsibility for the events in the Iran-Contra affair must rest with the president. If the president did not know what his na tional security advisers were doing, he should have.” The 690-page final report comes three months after the conclusion of summer-long hearings into the se cret sales oTU.S. weapons to Iran and the diversion of some profits to the Nicaraguan rebels known as Contras. At the White House, Reagan spokesman Marlin Fitzwater said, “This new report reflects the subjec tive opinions and not even the unan imous judgment of the committee.” The report, in one new disclosure, Analyst: White House to deal with Iran report by ignoring it WASHINGTON (AP) — The congressional Iran-Contra report has hammered President Reagan with embarrassing evidence that complicates White House efforts to revitalize his damaged administra tion in the twilight of his term. The White House strategy for dealing with the problem? Try to ig nore it, hope it will go away and play up the report’s dissenting Analysis views. Argue that the major- ity findings are “predictably partisan” and nothing more than “the subjective views of the members.” White House spokesman Marlin Fitzwater refused to discuss specific charges in the report. “We are moving on, and we trust that out of this experience has come indicates the administration was de- » ceived when, after concluding that middleman Manucher Ghorbanifar was untrustworthy, it switched to what it saw as a more reliable second channel for dealing with Iranian Continentol Airlines defends pilots actions DENVER (AP) — Continental Airlines on Wednesday said the co pilot of Flight 1713, who had only 36 hours of flying time on a DC-9, was at the controls when the jet crashed in a snowstorm, killing 28 people and injuring 54. Capt. Richard Hillman, Continen tal vice president for flight opera tions, said the captain did not act im properly in assigning co-pilot Lee Bruecher to handle the takeoff Sun day at Stapleton International Air port. “The decision as to who makes the takeoff is left to the captain,” Hill man said. “It’s not unusual at all for a captain to assign the duties of fly ing the airplane to the co-pilot.” The Continental executive would not comment on reports from sources close to the investigation that Capt. Frank Zvonek may have tried to take over at the last moment. However, National Transporta tion Safety Board chairman Jim Burnett said later that the captain may have had his hands on the con trols when the jet crashed. Both of Zvonek’s arms were broken, as was his control column, Burnett said. Hillman said that Bruecher had 25 hours’ flying time on a DC-9 dur ing training but that he did not know whether any of the 11 hours Bruecher had flown since complet ing training had been in snowy weather. House members muster fight against Gorbachev address WASHINGTON (AP) — At least 75 House members, mostly Republi cans, signed a letter Wednesday pro testing a White House proposal that Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev become the first commu nist leader to address a joint meeting of Congress. A morning session of the House Republican Conference turned into “one hell of a donnybrook” over the request that Gorbachev be invited to address a joint meeting on Dec. 9 during the Washington summit, Rep. Robert Dornan, R-Calif, said. Rep. Dick Cheney of Wyoming, third in the House GOP leadership, said “most Republican members feel very strongly that the invitation to speak to a joint session is a high honor that should not he extended to the head of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.” Cheney, chairman of the House Republican Conference, the GOP caucus, said he had expressed his displeasure to White House officials, but the administration showed no sign Wednesday of backing down from the proposal.

If recent history is any guide, however, Reagan will not be able to put the affair behind him. It has dogged him persistently for a year, eroding confidence in his presidency and undermining his authority. And there’s more to come. Sources say independent counsel Lawrence E. Walsh is preparing a broad conspiracy charge against Reagan’s former national security adviser, John M. Poindexter, and former National Security Council aide Lt. Col. Oliver L. North, along with two arms dealers, stemming from the Iran-Contra affair. Will Reagan pardon Poindexter and North? As recently as Oct. 2, Reagan said, “My own personal be lief is that they were not involved in anything that was breaking the law.” moderates. The report said American opera tives were dismayed to discover that the second channel represented the same Iranian leaders as did the first channel, and that some U.S. weap ons destined for so-called moderates in fact went to Iran’s radical Revolu tionary Guards. Also, one of the moderates may have masterminded the kidnappings of at least two of the Americans then being held hostage in Lebanon — educator Frank Reed and William Buckley, the Beirut CIA station chief who was killed while in captiv- ity. The report quoted American offi cials as saying the discovery really blew their minds. But it said they voiced no objections to the operation continuing. The congressional report spells out details of a story it said was laced with lying, deception, excessive and corrosive secrecy, disdain for the law, confusion and disarray, perva sive dishonesty and a cover-up marked by the deliberate destruc tion of thousands of documents. “A small group of senior officials believed that they alone knew what was right,” the investigating lawmak ers said. “What may apdy be called the ‘cabal of the zealots’ was in charge.” All six Republicans on the House panel and two of the five GOP Sen ate panel members registered dis sent, concluding that the president and his men were guilty of no more than errors of judgment. National Briefs Negotiators remove obstacle in treaty WASHINGTON (AP) — American and Soviet negotiators have removed a major sticking point in the way of a treaty to eliminate intermediate-range nu clear missiles and are close to set tling a second problem, Reagan administration officials said Wednesday. But two tough verifications is sues remain on the table less than three weeks before the scheduled arrival on Dec. 7 of Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev for talks with President Reagan. Two officials, wno spoke to a reporter only on condition of an onymity, said the negotiators in Geneva had decided against lan guage in the treaty calling for fur ther talks on nuclear weapons in Europe. House approves defense spending bill WASHINGTON (AP) — The House passed on a 264-158 vote Wednesday a bipartisan compro mise which authorizes $296 bil lion in defense spending while imposing some arms control re strictions on the White House. The Senate was expected to take up debate Thursday, which was hammered out in a House- Senate conference committee Tuesday. The administration fears that the bill will hamper the United States in its current arms negotia tions with the Soviet Union. Senate approves energy overhaul WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate passed legislation Wednesday to overhaul the pro gram that just five years ago was billed as the final solution to dis posing of the nation’s growing ac cumulation of high-level nuclear waste. began Teacher with AIDS ordered reinstated The revamped search for an underground radioactive waste site is the most contentious fea ture in a $15.9 billion appropria tions bill providing money for en ergy and water development programs in the fiscal year that began Oct. 1.
