FOUR QUEBEC SEPARATISTS were charged yesterday
with the kidnaping and murder of provincial Labor Minister
Pierre Laporte.
At the same time, the Canadian defense department announced
the withdrawal of army troops called up in October to assist Quebec
police after the kidnapings of Laporte and British Trade Commis-
sioner James Cross.
Laporte, 49, was kidnaped Oct. 10 by the separatist Front de
Liberation du Quebec (FLQ) and was strangled a week later.;
The FLQ, which seeks separation of predominantly French-speak-
ing Quebec from English-speaking Canada, also carried out the
kidnaping of Cross on Oct. 5. He was released later unharmed.

FEDERAL JUDGE RICHARD AUSTIN dismissed yesterday
a suit that sought to enjoin the Army from spying on private
citizens.
Judge Austin rejected the American Civil Liberties Union's re-
quest for an injunction to halt surveillance of citizens by the Army.
The suit also asked that thg Army be directed to destroy information }
collected during the alleged spying operation.
He said testimony in the hearing disclosed only that Army surveil-
lance was "typical Washington bureaucratic boondoggling."
Austin held that the administration was well within its rights to,
use all facilities available to prepare itself against emergencies which ,
might arise from civil disturbances.

Garbage service, street maintenance, and garage work on police

About 2,000 of the city's 3,000 nonuniformed employes reported
out sick as a protest over the mayor's attempts to change work assign-

who refused to follow an order to drive trucks. The mayor previously

POSITIONS UNCHANGED
Mtideast peace talks resume

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (/P) - The disrupted
Arab-Israeli peace talks resumed yesterday under
the guidance of Gunnar V. Jarring, the U.N. spec-
ial envoy for the Middle East.
Ambassador Yosef Tekoah of Israel was the
first to call on the Swedish diplomat in his office
at U.N. headquarters where they talked for al-
most a half hour.
Jarring met late yesterday afternoon with Am-
bassador Mohammed H. el-Zayyat of Egypt and
Ambassador Muhammad H. el-Farra of Jordan.
In advance of the resumption of t h e talks
Secretary-General U Thant issued a report by
Jarring to the U.N. Security Council on the status
of his three-year-old mission.
The report contained texts of letters from Is-
rael, Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon stating their
firm positions in the wake of the Security Coun-
cil resolution approved on Nov. 22, 1967. This in-
cludes an Israeli withdrawal from Arab territory.
Both the Arab countries and Israel have ac-

cepted the resolution, but differences still exist on
how it should be implemented.
Israel said withdrawal should take place after
"permanent, secure and recognized boundaries are
agreed upon." The Arabs say Israel must with-
draw its forces first.
A letter from Foreign Minister Abba Eban of
Israel made clear that his country believed ex-
tension and consolidation of the U.S.-arranged
cease-fire should be taken up in the talks with
Jarring.
The cease-fire is due to expire Feb. 5 and Egypt
has declared it would not agree to an extension
if there is no progress in the talks.
The re-opening of the talks got a nod of ap-
proval from Moscow. The government newspaper
Izvestia said a positive step had been taken to-
ward restoring peace.
The Soviet statement reiterated support of the
Arab position that Israel must evacuate Arab ter-
ritories occupied since the June 1967 war.

Nationalist Chinese government.
This is' the same position tak-
en by Canada and Italy recently in
establishing relations with R e d
China.
This position is not to declare
that Formosa belongs to Peking,
but merely to recognize Peking's
stand on the issue.
Foreign Minister Clodomiro Al-
meyda said the document estab-
lishing relations was signed Dec.
15 in Paris by ambassadors En-
rique Bernstein of Chile a n d
Huang Chen of Red China.
"This means the establishment
of relations with a government
that represents the most populous
nation on the earth and which has
accomplished significant advances
in economic and social develop-
ment," Almeyda said in a state-
ment. "These accomplishments
make it an undeniably important
factor in international affairs.
Almeyda said both countries will
exchange ambassadors as soon as
possible.
Minutes before issuing his state-
ment, Almeyda met with Ti-tsun
Li, Nationalist China's ambassador
to Chile. Li informed the Chilean
government of the decision of his
government to sever relations.
The Nationalist Chinese ambas-
sador left with his family for For-
mosa.
The first Latin-American nation
to recognize Red China was Cuba.
Chile is the 57th nation to es-
tablish relations with Peking.
Announcement of the establish-
ment of relationsebetweenthe two
countries has been expected f o r
some time, following the election,
of Allende last Oct. 28.
Chile voted in the U.N. General
Assembly in November for the Al-
banian resolution which called for
ousting Nationalist China from the
world body and seating Commun-
ist China.

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. U -
Angela Davis, black radical
educator charged with mur-
der, kidnaping and conspiracy
in a courthouse shooting that
took four lives, gave a Black
Power salute and declared her
innocence o n arraignment
yesterday.
Davis, 26, is awaiting trial in
San Rafael, Calif.
Facing Superior Court Judge
Wilson, she said, "I want to de-
clare publicly before the court and
the people of this country that I
am innocent of al11 charges
brought against me by the State
of California."
She is accused of furnishing the
four guns with which the convicts
made their break, leading to the
deaths of Superior Court Judge
Harold J. Haley, two of the con-
victs and an accomplice.
The third convict, Ruchell Ma-
gee, 31, who survived a wound,
was arraigned with Davis. Heav-
ily shackled, he challenged t he
court's jurisdiction.
Allan Brotsky of San Francisco,
chief attorney for Davis, moved
that she be named her own coun-
sel, that she be granted bail and
that the indictments be dismissed
on grounds of inufficient evi-
dence and inability to get a fair
trial.
Wilson told him to file the mo-
tions in writing by Feb. 5 and
gave the state until Feb. 22 to re-
ply.
After that, Wilson said, he
would set a trial date after con-
sulting the state Supreme Court
about assigning an outside trial
judge.
All Marin County judges have
disqualified themselves because of
friendship for the slain J u d g e
Haley.
Davis says she is being used by
the FBI "to prove to their re-
actionary constituency that they
could capture black revolutionar-
ies."
Her remarks, billed as her first
interview since being arrested,
w e r e printed in Muhammad
Speaks, a Black Muslim newspa-
per. It said Davis' comments were
recorded by her attorney while
she awaited extradition from New
York to California on the charges.
"I am a black Communist," Da-
vis said. "T h e corrupt govern-
ment of this country could not ac-
cept such a combination. This is
why they use the events at San
Rafael to launch an effort to mur-
der me."
She contended t h e charges
against her are "frameups."
"I am a political prisoner," she
said. "The government intends to
silence me, to prohibit me from
further organizing my people ..
by convicting me on the basis of
a crime I had nothing to do with."
Davis, an assistant professor of
philosophy at UCLA, charged that
a campaign was launched to have
her dismissed from her teaching
position, "not because there were
any defects in my qualifications
but simply because I was black, a
Communist and devoted to t h e
struggle for freedom of my people.
