THE UNITED STATES is continuing to lose almost as many "
helicopters in Indochina - about three a day - as it did in pre-
vious years despite a lower level of fighting and American troop
withdrawals, Pentagon statistics showed yesterday.
Last year more than seven million sorties - one flight by each
$230,000 helicopter - were flown. Pentagon spokesmen say that even x

George Miller blamed the cheating mainly on a federal rule that
allows applicants to get aid merely by declaring they meet all quali-

unemployment benefits or that there was a man living in the home.

lost his appeal yesterday against a British government order ex-

The tribunal stated that Dutschke, who was admitted to Britain
to recuperate from gunshot wounds he suffered in an attempt on his
life in Berlin in 1968, had not kept his promise to abstain from politi-
cal activities. It said that "there must without doubt be risk in his:

Diplomat
seized in
Uruguay
MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (T
- British Ambassador Geof-
frey Jackson was kidnaped
yesterday by Tupamaro ter-
rorists who beat his guards
with clubs. They carried the
envoy off in his own car,
which later was found in
flames.
There was no immediate com-
munication from the guerrillas on
what demands, if any, they are
making for the release of Jack-
son, 55, who has been ambassador
to Uruguay since June 1969.
The Tupamaros have been hold-
ing two other kidnap victims for
more than five months and they
executed a third, U.S. police ex-
pert Dan Mitrione, last August.
Police said the terrorists sent
their own car crashing into the
ambassador's vehicle as it ap-
proached the British Embassy in
downtown Montevideo on his way
to work shortly before 10 a.m.
Witnesses said the kidnapers
leaped into the ambassador's black
limousine and overpowered t h e
driver and t w o guards, beating
them severely. All three were hos-
pitalized, but were n o t injured
critically.
A spray can was found in the
abandoned car a few blocks away.
There was speculation it con-
tained a chemical used to put the
ambassador to sleep.
T h e Uruguayan government
promptly relayed its "profound
sorrow and great concern" to the
British government and assured
that all steps were being taken to
find Jackson. Police erected road
b lo ck s on all highways out of
Montevideo and at key intersec-
tions. The frontier with Brazil was
closed.
Police have been carrying on a
running fight for more than six
years with the Tupamaros, who
seek to overthrow Uruguay's elect-
ed government and replace it with
a Socialist regime.
Organized by dissident Social-
ists in 1963, the Tupamaros were
once hailed by some as a Robin
Hood band. But recent actions of
the guerrillas have cost them
much of their popular support.

CLERICS VS. GOVERNMENTS
Activist Roman Catholic clergy
clash with secular authorities

VATICAN CITY (k)-Roman
Catholic clergymen around the
world -- in the United States,
in Africa, in Latin America and
in Spain - are getting in trou-
ble more and more with civil
authorities.
The latest is the Most Rev.
Albert Ndongme, a black bishop
in the West African country of
Cameroon who was sentenced to
death Wednesday on conviction
of plotting to assassinate the
country's president.
Bishop Ndongme admitted
giving arms to rebels as a "sym-
bol" but denied taking any ac-
tive role in plans for armed re-
bellion. He said he expected a

"spiritual coup d'etat in which
only the angels would act."
Last month the Vatican re-
ported the arrest in Conakry,
Guinea, of Archbishop Raymond
Maria Tchidimbo. Reports from
neighboring Togo said the pre-
late refused to m a k e a radio
statement supporting the gov-
ernment's claim that Portuguese
mercenaries invaded Guinea in
late November.
In the United States, Fathers
Daniel and Philip Berrigan are
serving prison terms f o r de-
stroying draft records in Balti-
more, Md. Many other Ameri-
can priests have taken part in
various forms of civil dissent.
Reports continue to trickle

out of Brazil about tortures of
priests in prison. Catholic cler-
gymen have often been in the
forefront of civil dissent in Mex-
ico. And in Spain two priests
were among the Basques sen-
tenced to long prison terms last
month for political terrorism,
and a number of other Basque
priests have been arrested.
Countless other examples of
civil dissent by Catholic clergy-
men have occurred over the past
year. And the tide seems to b
on the rise.
Throughout the Church's his-
tory, clerics have defied kings,
led armies and often risen to
high political office.' In these
times of political ferment it
seems natural for some church-
men to be swept up in activist
movements.

The State Department imme-
diately apologized for the inci-
dent. In Moscow, Foreign Minis-
ter Andrei A. Gromyko delivered
a strong protest to U.S. Ambas-
sadorJacob Beam during a prev-
iously scheduled meeting to dis-
cuss the mounting series of inci-
dents in b o t h Russia and the
United States over American Jew-
ish reaction to the treatment of
Soviet Jews.
And in Washington, the embas-
sy itself asked the State Depart-
ment for added protection, for
quick apprehension of the bombers
and for compensation to repair
damage done to the building.
The bomb went off about 4:30
a.m. About a half hour later a
woman called the Washington
bureau of The Associated Press to
report the bombing and to warn
it was only "a sample of things to
come.''
"Let our people go," the caller
said. "Never again."
"Never again" is the motto of
the militant Jewish Defense Lea-
gue, which has conducted several
anti-Soviet demonstrations in this
country the past year.
The State Department quickly
assured Soviet officials additional
protection would be given. It also
said every effort would be made
to arrest those responsible for the
bombing.
"We have been making and will
make a very strong effort to pro-
tect Soviet installations," a de-
partment spokesman said.
"It is quite clear we will review

WASHINGTON (P) - The Food
and Drug Administration says
there is not enough mercury in
most types of tuna to worry about,
but contamination probably will
eliminate swordfish from t h e
American diet.
The FDA, reporting on a survey
still under way, said Thursday the
nation's food supply appears free
of significant mercury pollution,
except for swordfish and s o m e
types of large size tuna.
"We've done a market basket
survey on a broad variety, of foods
and supplemented this with spot
checks," Virgil O. Wodicka, head
of the FDA Bureau of Foods re-
ported.
"So far the only problem we've
found is fish," he t o 1 d a news
briefing, but added that even
there the pollution is not "criti-

cal enough for the housewife to
worry about."
The FDA reported last month
that 89 per c e n t of all frozen
swordfish samples contained mer-
cury in excess of the federal lim-
its, 1/2 part pollutant per million
parts of flesh.
The agency has found o n 1 y
large varieties of tuna - such as
yellow fin and big eye - accum-
ulate appreciable -amounts of the
metallic pollutant, which in large
doses can damage the central ner-
vous system and kidneys.
"Ways are becoming apparent
for tuna to remain a part of the
American diet," said Richard L.
Ronk, head of the FDA's mercury
team. He mentioned the possi-
bility of packaging only smaller
varieties of the fish, such as some
albacore and all skipjack.

FDA reports mercury in
tuna below danger level

our security measures to see how
they can be improved."
The target building, near Du-
Pont Circle, houses the embassy's
press relations department a n d
the information office for Soviet
Life magazine. Several families
also live there.
The bombing was the latest in
a series of anti-Soviet demonstra-
tions and violent incidents in sev-
eral U.S. cities. All the recent pro-
tests have been over the trials of
Soviet Jews in Leningrad accused
of planning to hijack an airplane.
