A FORMER BLACK PANTHER was shot and killed by police
Saturday night in Denver after he reportedly stabbed threej
women, knocked down one officer with a panel truck and fired
on the officers.
He was identified as James Young.
In Houston on Saturday a Black Panther member was also shot
by police.
Two policemen reported that they saw John Coward walking
down the street with a rifle under his coat. Coward opened fire on
them they said and they shot him while he was trying to reload.I
THE CHILEAN GOVERNMENT ruled yesterday that Cerro
Corp. will receive $18.3 million compensation for it nationalized
copper holdings, but that the two other American copper com-
panies operating here owe the state more than their property {
is worth.
The ruling by Comptroller General Hector Humeres claimed Ana-
conda Co. and Kennecott Copper Corp. have a net liability to the
government $378.5 million because of "excess profits" and allegedr
damage to mine installations and equipment.
President Salvador Allende's leftist government acknowledged'
earlier that, since Cerro's Rio Blanco mine in central Chile began
producing only this year, no question of excess profits was involved.
Chile nationalized the copper industry in July.
PRESIDENT Anwar Sadat of Egypt flew into Moscow yes-
terday to decide - with the Kremlin's help - on a response to
a new U.S. Middle East Peace proposal.
It; has been believed that Sadat is shopping for more military
hardware to counter a possible U.S. decision to resume arms ship-
ments to Israel.
THE NIXON ADMINISTRATION wants to overhaul the na-
tion's $750 million school-lunch program which one Agriculture
Department official says is threatening to become a nationalized
meal service for all children, regardless of need.
Approximately eight per cent of the 7.3 million children getting
reduced-price lunches last year-some 584,000 children-were from
families above the poverty line.
All lunches, including those served the needy, get a federal con-
tribution of five cents plus seven or eight cents in the form of do-
nated commodities.
AN ENGLISH CLERK from the British Embassy was arrested
in Aeilgrs and charged with passing on secrets.
Leonard Hinchliffe, 39, was seized by Special Branch security
agents in London shortly before midnight Sunday.
Hinchliffe was the fourth person charged under Britians Official
Secrets Acts since Britian expellod 105 alleged Soviet spies.
NEARLY 10,000 MOSCOW JEWS jammed the street in front
of the central synagogue last night to sing, dance and gossip as
they celebrated the Jewish holiday Simchat Torah.
The people crammed into Arkhipov Street from one end to the
other said this was the biggest holiday gathering of Soviet Jews
they could remember.
Discussion centered around emigration to Israel and some of the
young people were bold enough to wear pins with Israeli flags on,

of 11 key men, known as "steady

ment which must function pro-

The Pacific Maritime Associa-

specify whom they wanted was
upheld by an arbitrator. The
ILWU said the 11 refused to
accept the jobs because they
felt available work should be

wages and benefits. The walk-

be semiautonomous bodies. While
their individual pay and price de-

the wage-price criteria they de-

the Constitution.

minutes to dispose of these pro-
grams on a constitutional basis,"
Nader said. "This all wraps up as
a rape that makes the executive
expansion under the New Deal
look like a picnic," he said.

beginning .,of
Agnew's visit
ANKARA (A)M Bombs hurled
at twoAmerican targets marked
the beginning yesterday of Vice
President Spiro Agnew's 1I3-day
mission to Turkey, ; Iran_ and
Greece. The tombs exploded in
Istanbul, 20 miles northwest of
here, a few hours before Agnew's
plane landed.
U.S. officials in Istanbul said
an attempt was made to throw
a bomb over the fence of the U.S.
Consulate General grounds, but
the device fell short and exploded,
causing no damage. The second
bomb blew up the car of Kenton
Keith, a U.S. cultural attache.
The Consulate was closed for
Columbus Day. Turkey's martial
law government ordered the na-
tion's press to print no stories of
the explosions.
The vice president said in an
arrival statement that the U.S.
commitment to the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization - of which
Turkey is a- member -"Stands on
a foundation of bedrock."
Agnew was met at the airport
by Premier Nihat Erim. They rode
the 20 miles into the city along a
highway cleared of other traffic
and lined by clusters of Turks.
Agnew told Erim that "the link
our two countries have shared in
Nato for more than a decade re-
mains vital, not-only to our mu-
tual security but also to the peace
of the world."
On the flight from Washington,
