Leftwing forces kill
one of four osta ges

British ambassador killed

SAN SALVADOR (Reuter) - The lef-
twing Armed .forces of National
Resistance (FARN) said yesterday it
had killed one of its four hostages, local
businessman Ernesto Liebes, whose
body was foundWednesday night.
A FARN communique did not men-
tion the fate of the other three - British
bankers Ian Massie and Michael Chat-
terton and Japanese businessman
Takakazu Suzuki - and there was some
optimism here that they might still be
alive.
THE GUERRILLA group had
threatened to kill the captives, who they
kidnapped four months ago, unless its
demands - including a large ransom,

freedom for five political prisoners, and
the publication by local news media of
its manifesto - were met by Wed-
nesday night.
. The FARN communique said Mr.
Liebes, honorary Israeli consul in El
Salvador, was killed Wednesday
because Israel had refused to negotiate
for his freedom. It said FARN would
continue to kidnap businessmen and put
''war criminals'' on trial.
The communique accused the
Israelis of selling arms to El Salvador,
Nicaragua and Guatemala to suppress
revolutionary movements in Central
America.

THE HAGUE (Reuter) - Gunmen
killed the British ambassador to the
Netherlands and one of his Dutch ser-
vants in a bold daylight attack yester-
day outside the envoy's residence in the
center of The Hague.
Police and embassy officials said
they had no clues to the identity of the
two men who killed Sir Richard Sykes,
58, and 19-year-old embassy footman
Karel Straub.
But there was immediate speculation
that the shooting, described by police as
being carried out with professional
precision, could have been the work of
extremists seeking an end to the British
presence in Northern Ireland.
SIR RICHARD has been ambassador
to Holland since June, 1977. Before his
appointment here he was sent by
British Prime Minister James
Callaghan to report on the July, 1976,
bomb murder of the British am-

bassador to Ireland, Christopher
Ewart-Biggs.
The Provisional Irish Republican
Army (IRA), which has been waging a
violent campaign against British rule in
Northern Ireland for 10 years, claimed
responsibility for that killing on the out-
skirts of Dublin.
His killers were apparently highly
trained professionals. A Hague police
spokesman said yesterday only four
shots were fired at the ambassador
from' a distance of about 10 yards as he
got into his Rolls-Royce limousine out-
side his residence. One bullet struck
him in the head.

Cimino creates epic

Law School winners

Winners of the Law School Student Government election held Wednesday are
(from . to r.) Vice-President Mark "Buckwheat" Norby, TreasurerhTamara
Stewart, Secretary Brooke Schumm, and President Al Knauf. Duties for the '79-'80
term began last night when the new officers were sworn in at the Law Club
Cook room. Other new officials include Alan Walton and Deryck Palmer on the
Board of Governors and Carl Coramy, Jim Williams, Richard Cauley, and Noah
Yanich as Senators-at-large.

CHRISTOPHER Walken's Nick is no
less superb, epitomizing a kind of sym-
bolic American enthusiasm vitiated in-
to drug-riddle catatonia by forces ut-
terly beyond his control. Newcomer
Meryl Streep, though saddled with a
stereotyped, stand-by-your-man part,
brings Linda to life with a ferocity that
leaves no doubt this is a powerhouse ac-
tress waiting for the right part. John
Savage is perfect as Steven; an
emotional adolescent suddenly and
horrifyingly initiated into the adult
world, and real-life steel worker Chuck
Aspergren handles the fun-loving Axel
with such natural aplomb that one
wishes Cimino had intrusted him with a
more versatile vocabulary.
But most poignant of all is the late

John Cazale as the punky, insecure
Stan. A , splendid, overlooked actor,
Cazale knew he was dying of cancer
when he made Deer Hunter, yet still
managed to give one of the best per-
formances of his life.
Indeed, the entire film radiates a
commitment by artists who put
everything they had into a work they
consumingly believed in. One might
wish to proclaim it the Great American
Film, yet one is ultimately left with
only the agonizing wish that Cimino had
possessed a poet's ear to go with his
breadth of vision. We are thus forced to
accept The Deer Hunter as an erratic,
sometimes historic motion picture -
but managing even a sporadic immor
tality is itself a pretty wondrous
achievement.

Hall, 7 and 9:30) Stanley Kubrick tur-
ned Vladimir Nabokov's notorious book
into a witty, black satire on American
bourgeoisie life. James Mason portrays
that suave, ruthless pervert Humbert
Humbert, and Sue Lyon is genuinely
fresh, sexy and funny as the thirteen-
year old nymphet he loves.
The Fury (Aud. A, 7 and 9) Another
Brian DePalma horror flick about
young adults with highly lethal psychic
powers. With Kirk Douglas and John
Cassavettes. Based on a terrible novel
by Stephen King.
C'itizen Kane (Old A&D, 7 and 9:05) In
his late twenties, Orson Welles wrote,
directed and starred in this, his first
film; it remains an awe-inspiring
example of cinematic art. Reviewing
the life of one Charles Foster Kane
(based on late multimillionaire William
Hearst), we find a monumental, tragic
story of failed love, power and mor-
tality.
