THE U.S. EMBASSY renewed its request yesterday to the
Soviet government to release two U.S. generals detained since
Wednesday when their plane landed near the Soviet border.
Embassy officials called the landing in the Armenian town of
Leninkan, "clearly accidental," and requested Soviet authorities to
expedite departure of the plane and its occupants.
An embassy spokesman said no response has been received
from the Soviety Foreign Ministry.
He declined to speculate on suggestions that the plane and its
occupants might be used in pressing for the return of two Soviet air-
plane hijackers now being held in Turkey.
TWO LEADING BRANDS of birth control pills were discon-
tinued yesterday because of a laboratory link to benign breast
tumors in Beagles.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stated however,
"because of species differences and dosages used, the findings
in Beagles cannot be directly related to human experience."
The two brands, which account for an estimated 15-20 per cent
of the oral contraceptive market are Eli Lilly and Co.'s C-Queens and
Upjohn Co.'s Provest.
Dr. William Hubbard, vice president and general manager of
Upjohn's pharmaceutical division, said the company was withdraw-
ing the product voluntarily in view of "inferred risks, however small
and unproven."
There is no cause for patient alarm," FDA Commissioner Char-
les Edwards advised. "Women taking either C-Queens or Provest
should continue until advised by their physicians on a change."

GEORGE EDWARDS, one of 14 Black Panthers charged in
connection with a slaying last year, was sentenced yesterday to
a suspended two-to-five-year prison term after he plead guilty
to a reduced charge.
Edwards had been charged with five offenses, two punishable by
death, in connection with the torture and fatal shooting in May
1969 of Alex Rackley, a Panther from New York City.
Testimony in the trial of Lonnie McLucas, 24, the only defendant
to come to trial so far, indicated Edwards had been present when
Rackley was tortured in the basement of Panther's headquarters.
Four Panthers, including the national chairman, Bobby G. Seale,
remain to be tried in the case.

ATTY. GEN. JOHN Mitchell yesterday said the widespread
repetition in underground newspapers of the phrase "off the
pigs" may be contributing to the increase in fatal attacks on
But unless a "time and place causal connection" can be estab-
lished, the constitutional protection of free speech prevents the gov-
ernment from moving against those who publish such exhortations to
kill police, he said.
Mitchell and Quinn Tamm, executive director of the International
Association of Chiefs of Police, said at a joint news conference
they are concerned about attacks on law enforcement officers that
have left 21 killed and 560 injured in the past three months.
- Mitchell and Tamm worked out plans for a meeting of federal,
state and local law enforcement officials next week.
"Where you have underground papers saying things like 'off
the pigs,' where individual groups are encouraging attacks - on the
police, the constant repetition of this dialogue may have brought
about this type of activity even beyond the scope of the organization,"
Mitchell said.
A PLANNED NEWS conference by exiled Black Panther lead-
er Eldridge Cleaver and two other American fugitives was can-
celled yesterday without explanation.
Informants said the Algerian Socialist regime ordered that it
should not take place for fear of "anarchist" propaganda.
Cleaver, the Black Panther minister of information who spon-
sored the news conference, was scheduled to hold it with LSD
advocate Dr. Timothy Leary and Bernardine Dohrn, an extremist
student group member - or her sister, Jenifer, - who had joined
him here earlier this week.
The news conferenc originally was scheduled to take place
Thursday but was postponed.
"The press conference has been cancelled and I cannot say why,"
a spokesman for the Black radical movement said by telephone Fri-
day. Algerian officials were not available for comment.
The sources said the Algerian government felt the news con-
ference would have turned into a rostrum to favor the use of drugs
and expose "anarchist" ideals in this country.

President Nixon addresses the UN
Nixon asksSovieOts
for joint peace effort
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. tiP - President Nixon went be-
fore the United Nations yesterday with an appeal to the So-
viet Union "to join in a peaceful competition" with -America
to promote world peace and progress.
Addressing the 127-nation General Assembly's 25th anni-
versary session, Nixon portrayed many of the world's - and,
the United Nations' - most grievous troubles" as stemming
from the deep U.S.-Soviet differences since World War II.
Nixon outlined several incentives for the two great pow-
ers to curb their differences. These included:
- - -Avoiding a nuclear confronta-

banned, and searches and ar-

Eduardo Frei said in a nation-
wide address Thursday night, in
which he formally declared the

normal manner."

tigtens on eve
of Allende vote
SANTIAGO, Chile (R - Soldiers and police enforced the
toughest security measures Chile has seen in more than a
decade yesterday on the eve of the expected election today of
Marxist Salvador Allende as the country's next president.
The armed forces were placed on maximum alert, road-
blocks ringed Santiago and a nightly curfew was ordered for
the capital following Thursday's attempted assassination of
the army's commander in chief, Maj. Gen. Rene Schneider.
A national state of emergency was declared, as 10,000
soldiers and police searched Santiago for the terrorists. Dem-

Trustees of the Ann Arbor Board
of Education Wednesday night
voted to readmit three black
youths who had been under ex-
tended suspension for involvement
in vandalism at Pioneer H i g h
School Sept. 30.
Two of the students were re-
instated pending the outcome of
disciplinary hearings, and attend-
ed classes Thursday. They have
been charged with malicious de-
struction of property and creating
a disturbance during the Pioneer
High incident.
The third stuent has been in

The trustees' decision was a re-
versal of a vote taken earlier in
the evening which refused to re-
admit the students. A general up-
roar ensued among some 50 black
students and 25 black parents in
the audience, and the trustees vot-
ed again.

prime responsibility for peace on

before, the continuation of t h e
Mideast cease-fire and of the ef-
forts for peace negotiations.
Nixon spoke only briefly of the

and negotiate a peace," he said.
Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei
A. Gromyko listened attentively
r and impassively as Nixon issued
his public bid to Kremlin leaders.
Routine applause greeted Nixon

i vised address.
"I invited the leaders of the
Soviet Union to join us in taking

Report on
WASHINGTON (P) - A federal
judge yesterday called a House
committee report condemning
radical campus speakers a "black-
list" and scheduled a final decis-
ion for next week on whether to
forbid its public distribution.
The report says a survey of 95
U.S. colleges and universities
siows that 65 speakers it identi-
fies as members of 11 revolution-
ary, militant"or Communist-orien-
ted organizations or supporters of
'such organizations were paid
$108,968 for 155 campus speeches
over the past two years.
Government lawyers said the
House Internal Security Commit-
tee report was ordered by Chair-
man Richard Ichord, (D-Mo.), to
determine the extent to which re-
volutionary, and Communist-orien-
ted organizations are financed by
campus speech fees.
U.S. District Judge Gerhard
Gessel said the report did not ac-
complish its purpose, but has been
used as a "blacklist" to be sent
to "college presidents, alumni
members and their families."
Kevin T. Maroney, a Justice De-
partment lawyer repre. ,nting the
committee, said the report's con-
clusion that "the campus speaking
circuit is certainly the source of
Ksignificant financing for the pro-
moters of disorderly and revolu-
tionary activity among students"
is indisputable.
He said the balance of powers,
between Congress and the courts
gives Gessel no authority to stop
publication of the report, which
the lawyer called a normal part
of the legislative process.
Gessel scheduled a final hearing
and decision for next Wednesday
night on whether to sign a per-
manent court order against pub-
lc d istribution of the report.
He extended until then the tem+
porary restraining order he signed
last week against publication of
the report.
Ichord has had the report dis-
tributed to any newsmen who ask-
ed for it, and has had the govern-
ment lawyers challenge the court's
authority to issue such an order.
The order was asked by the
American Civil Liberties Union on
behalf of three people named in
the report.

Salvador Allende

armed forces and police vehicles,
fire trucks, ambulances and oth-
er designated essential traffic
were allowed on the streets.
The curfew - from midnight
to 6 a.m. - was to continue in-
definitely, security officials said.
Long lines of people waited out-
side the Defense Ministry yester-
day to apply for s a f e conduct
passes that would allow them to
be out during curfew hours.
Patricio Rojas, Chile's interior
minister, said demonstrations were
banned in the country.
"The country must be absolute-
ly quiet for the crucial election
tomorrow," he said.
