NOW THAT its nuclear-arms inspection team is safely out of Iraq, the United Nations has a duty to follow up aggressively on the information the plucky inspectors risked their lives to obtain. The first task: Make public the list of companies and countries that supplied Iraq with the equipment and raw materials to build nuclear weapons. The best way to neutralize the covert traffic is to expose those involved.Public exposure will be very embarrassing to the nations and companies involved. China, for one, was already identified by U.N. sources as the chief supplier of low-grade uranium feedstock, which simplifies the process of making weapons-grade uranium.

The U.S. auto industry is in low gear as 1993 models are being rolled out, but at least it's moving again. With a modest 13 million vehicles likely to be sold this calendar year, improvement to 14 million is predicted by many analysts for 1993.That's far short of the 15.5 million that historically would constitute a good year. But, with the industry in an outright depression the past two years, it'll take what it can get."Buy American" is being taken more seriously by car buyers, especially since domestic cars carry an average price tag that's $3,000 lower than foreign competitors.

"I was absolutely blown out of my socks," said Kumpar, owner of the Baltimore Collision Center in Remington. The frigid winter caused all sorts of energy market disruptions. Demand spiked.
