A barge carrying waste material for the Exxon Chemical Co. ruptured as it was being unloaded today, spilling up to 400,000 gallons of water mixed with lesser amounts of alcohol and oil into the Grand River, state police said. The barge owned by Palmer Barge Co. was carrying the waste for the subsidiary of Exxon Corp. when a tank in the barge buckled, releasing "300,000 to 400,000 gallons of combustible material," said Lt. Ronnie Jones of the state police. Jones said the company immediately placed booms in the river to contain the spill and sent cleanup crews from New Orleans to the swampy site, about 70 miles west of the city.

With 300-pound defensive tackle Alvin Wright and 250-pound linebacker Fred Strickland doubtful for Sunday night's game in New Orleans, the Rams are concerned about stopping Saint running back Craig (Ironhead) Heyward. Heyward is listed at 260 pounds, but Ram coaches think he is closer to 280 pounds. "He's bigger than anybody we have on defense right now," linebacker coach Ronnie Jones said.
