SAY PLANS MISSION TO FREE ANDERSON

Peggy Say, the sister of Terry A. Anderson, the longest-held American hostage in Beirut, says she's going to Lebanon next month and won't come back without her brother. Anderson, formerly of Batavia, N.Y., and chief Middle East correspondent for the Associated Press, was kidnapped in 1985.

"This is a private initiative . . . born of frustration and desperation and fear that Terry will not survive much longer," she said.

Mrs. Say said former hostages have told her their Lebanese captors wanted to release them but would not do so without Iran's approval.
