NEW YORK - Prices on the New York Stock Exchange
hit the lowest pointsince the cuban missile crisis 12 years
ago yesterday when the Dow Jones industrial average drop-
ped to 627.19.
Not since Nov. 19, 1962, when the average fell to 626.21
over anxieties caused by the U.S.-U.S.S.R. confrontation
over Cuba, have prices plunged so low.
More than two million shares were traded - mostly by
investors anxious to unload - in the final half hour of
business yesterday after the Dow Index dropped to the
new low.

WASHINGTON - Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin
concluded talks with U.S. officials yesterday as Secretary
of State Henry Kissinger cemented plans to fly to the
Middle East to mediate the dispute between Israel and her
Arab neighbors.
After Rabin's 40-minute meeting with President Ford, the
White House made no mention of the secretary's trip. But
it was learned that Kissinger has definitely decided to
make another shuttle flight to the Middle East during
the second week of October.
WASHINGTON - CIA Director William Colby said yes-
terday the Central Intelligence Agency "had no connection
with the military coup in 1973" in Chile.
"We did look forward to a change in government, but
through democratic elections by political forces," Colby
Colby made his remarks to a conference on the CIA
sponsored by the Center for National Security Studies, sup-
ported by grants from three foundations.
He declined to get into details publicly about his re-
ported testimony to a House Armed Services subcommit-
tee last April that the CIA was authorized to spend up
to $8 million between 1970 and 1973 to undermine the
government of President Salvador Allende of Chile.
ST. PAUL, Binn. - The pall of a possible mistrial sha-
dowed the eight-month-old trial of two American Indian
Movement leaders yesterday when one juror had to be
hospitalized. But a defense lawyer said he is hopeful de-
liberations will resume today.
The mistrial possibility arose after juror Therese Scher-
rier, 53, became ill with high blood pressure, postponing
yesterday's deliberations. She is the juror prosecutors be-
lieved mostly likely to vote for conviction.
Should Scherrier be unable to return, the trial couldn't
continue without the approval of both sides.

A D D I S ABABA, Ethiopia,
-The armed forces committee
which deposed Ethiopia's once-
absolute ruler, Emperor Haile
Selassie, yesterday in a blood-
less coup, pledged today to re-
form Ethiopia's educational,
legal, and near-feudal land ten-
ure systems.
The new military rulers down-
graded the role of Lt. Gen. Am-
an Andom, apparently to pre-
vent him from emerging as a
strong man in the wake of Se-
lassie's ouster.
The 13-man Armed Forces:
Coordinating Committee issued
what it called a correction to
an announcement that Andom
was its.chairman. It said he
was only the spokesman, im-
plying he had no more status
than the other 12 members.
But Andom, a popular war
hero, clearly remained No. 1
in the military reform move-
ment. He is acting prime min-
ister, defense minister and arm-
ed forces chief of staff.

Diplomats said they believed;
Selassie's fall could mark a
major shift in Ethiopia's rela-I
tions with the United States,;
whose aid Ethiopians reformersr
claim was a prop for the, em-
peror's feudal regime.;
They said Ethiopia's new
rulers have told the United1
States they look elsewhere for1

ington boosts arms supplies to
offset Russian tank and jet
shipments to Somalia.
