A BLACK POWER LEADER was returned to Trinidad yes-
terday under heavy guard to face multiple murder charges.
Abdul Malik, also known as Michael X, and five others have
been charged with the killings of a 27-year-old woman divorcee, who
is the daughter of a former member of the British Parliament, and
a local barber.
Police, acting on an anonymous tip, searched:the garden of
Malik's home and found the bodies.
Police reported that Malik had arrived in Trinidad and said
he was going to organize the country's black power groups into one
cohesive movement that would make him the next prime minister.
FARM EXPORTS may reach a record value of more than
$7.8 million this year, according to the Agriculture Department.
This report comes despite administration claims that dock strikes
have caused a sharp cutback in exports.
Agriculture Secretary Earl Butz has criticized dock workers for
tying up farm shipments and predicted a drop in the export value.
A problem now is to find a "graceful" way to explain how farm ex-
ports are higher than Butz predicted, one source said.
Much of the Nixon administration's strategy for improving farm
income is based on expanded foreign trade. The goal, Butz said, is
for farm exports to reach $10 billion a year as early as possible.
PAUL GILLY was sentenced to the electric bhair yesterday
by a jury in Washington, Pa. for his role in the slayings of Jo-
seph Yablonski, his wife and daughter two years ago.
Yablonski gained reknown for his challenge to the established
United Mine Worker Union leadership two years ago.
Gilly was the second of five alleged participants in the Yablon-
ski, slayings to be convicted and sentenced to the electric chair.
No date was set for Gilly's execution and an appeal is expected
on the three count charge of first-degree murder.
SENATOR EDWARD MUSKIE (D-Me.), said yesterday he is
running against a "phantom" opponent - the percentage of the
vote he wins in New Hampshire's Democratic presidential primary.
Muskie told a group of supporters in Portsmouth, N.H. that the
press will interpret next Tuesday's balloting on the basis of whether
he achieves "a percentage they haven't agreed upon yet. What counts
next Wednesday morning is who got the most votes, who got the
most delegates."
Muskie's strategists have been aiming at polling at least a clear
majority over his opponents. including four on the ballot and a
write-in candidate.

Castro hits at U.S. ties

RICHARD KLIENDIENST, Acting Atty. Gen., pours a glass of water for Felix Rohatyn, a director
of International Telephone and Telegraph Corp., yesterday during their hearing before the Senate
Judiciary Committee.
HARRISBURG TRIAL:
A llege errigan letter sai
to praise informer Douglas

Ni xon aide
denies tie,"
inITT case
WASHINGTON A - Acting
Atty. Gen. Richard Kleindienst
denied vehemently yesterday
that the settlement of an anti-
trust suit against Internation-
al Telephone and Telegraph
Corp (ITT) was based on po-
litical considerations.
Kleindienst also told the Sen-
ate Judiciary Committee he did
not know of reports that ITT com-
mitted $400,000 to the 1972 Re-
publican National Convention un-
til six months after the anti-trust
settlement was made.
"I would like to say categorical-
ly and specifically that not until
Dec. 1971 did I have any knowl-
edge, direct or indirect, that I'TT
was beirg asked to make a contri-
bution for the Republican Nation-
al Convention," he testified.
The controversy stems from gov-
ernment handling of a 1970 merg-
er described as the biggest in
American history.
ITT, a giant conglomerate with
assets of $6.3 billion, acquired the
multi billion-dollar Hartford Fire
Insurance Corp. in June of. 1970,
despite government anti-trust ob-
iections.
The Justice Department, in a
move at issue now, said 13 months
later that ITT could keep Hartford
Fire if it got rid of several smaller
acquisitions.
Syndicated columnist Jack And
derson charged that a settlement
favorable to ITT was arranged aft-
er one of its subsidiary companies
pledged up to $400,000 to help fi-
nance next August's Republican
National Convention.
During a recess from the Sen-
ate hearing, committee chairman
Sen. James Eastland (D-Miss.),
said when asked for comment on
Kliendienst's testimony that "he's
guilty of nothing."

The hanging

HARRISBURG, Pa. (A) -
Philip Berrigan was quoted yes-{
terday as praising informer Boyd{
Douglas' devotion to the antiwarf
Catholic left, some 10 weeks afterI
the latter had secretly betrayed
him to the FBI.
"Our charge emerges in truly
outstanding fashion," the Rev.
Berrigan allegedly wrote Sister
Elizabeth McAlister in a letter
read into the record at the fed-
eral conspiracy trial of the priest,
the nun and five others.
"The value and concerns that

went on. "He's thinking move-
ment. Mark my words he will be
one of our best people."
Douglas 31, testified that he
was referred to as the "charge d'
affaires" by the defendants. The
seven are accused of plotting to
kidnap presidential aide Henry
Kissinger, blow up heating tun-
nels under Washington D.C., and
vandalize draft centers.
A fellow convict with Berrigan
in the Lewisburg, Pa., federal
penitentiary in the spring of 1970,
Douglas said he defected to the
FBI in the course of smuggling

1970 to begin a six-year federal
term for destroying draft records.
Douglas was serving an eight-year
stretch for transporting fraudu-
lent checks and assaulting an FBI
agent.
The defense is seeking to sub-
poena FBI Director J. Edgar
Hoover to produce records relating
to Douglas' criminal record and
his work as an FBI informer.
Tuesday the defense revealed
that Douglas sought a tax-free
$50,000 reward from the FBI as
the price of his information.

WASHINGTON (VP) - Cuban
Prime Minister Fidel Castro is
telling intimates he is no long-
er inflexibly opposed to resum-
ing a more friendly relationship
with the United States.
Diplomats attuned to Castro's
thinking say there has been a
decided change in his views
since last September when he
declared that Cuba has "no in-
tention or desire of resuming
relations with Yankee imperial-
ism."
The first evidence of . the
emergence of a "New Castro"
came in Chile last Nov.'25 when
he declared that an era of U.S.-

Cuban friendship might be pos-
sible after the Nixon adminis-
tration leaves office.
U.S. officials say Castro has
given them no direct signal of a
desire for resuming a dialogue
and there is some question whe-
ther the Nixon administration
would agree to talks prior to the
November elections.
Nixon administration political
strategists, recognizing that
anti - Castro sentiment among
Cuban refugees remains strong,
say that a show of flexibility
toward Castro before November
would cost the Republicans
thousands of votes.

MARSEILLE, France (j?) -
French customs agents made
the world's largest recorded
seizure of pure heroin yesterday
- 425 kilos or 937 pounds con-
cealed in the bilges of a Carib-
bean shrimnp boat.
In Washington, U.S. Treasury
officials said the cache would be
worth $200 million to $450 mil-
lion on the streets of New York
depending on how much it was
cut with other substances. They
said 100-milligram doses with

5 per cent heroin would bring
$450 million.
Officials said they believed
the boat had already made two
Atlantic crossings, delivering
similar quantities through "the
Latin connection," the route
that ; takes hard drugs from
clandestine French laboratories
through Central and South
America to U.S. addicts. Each
shipment, when cut, could sup-
ply every addict in the United
States for a month.
