Sister Janice McLaughlin, 35, a
Maryknoll nun from Pittsburgh, had
been jailed for three weeks on
security-law charges after she and
three colleagues prepared a report
criticizing the white Rhodesian gov-
ernment's treatment of black civil-
ians in the five-year guerrilla war.
THE JUDGE who ordered her held
without bail last week described her
as a "dedicated supporter of the
terrorist cause" and a "grave secur-
ity risk." She said at a court hearing
that she sympathized with the insur-
gents.
In an interview on the South
African Airways flight from the
Rhodesian capital of Salisbury, Sis-
ter Janice said she was "in some
ways disappointed" at her sudden re-
lease. "I was anxious to fight out the
court case. I believed in what we
were doing and that the government

an "embarrassment" to the Rhode-
sian government.
A SPOKESPERSON for the Rho-
desian attorney general's office said
Sister Janice was expelled as a "pro-
hibited immigrant."
She had been scheduled to stand
trial next Tuesday under a security
law prohibiting the spread of alarm,
fear or despondency and could have
faced up to seven years in prison.
Her three male colleagues on the
Catholic Commission for Peace and
Justice are to stand trial on security
charges Sept. 30 and face maximum
terms of 25 years. Two are free on
bail and one is in detention.
THE COMMISSION report ac-
cused Rhodesian authorities of in-
flicting hardship on 580,00 blacks by
moving them to "protected villages"
away from the guerrilla forces.
Early Thursday, Sister Janice was
taker from the jail to her apartment,

She was met at Johannesburg
airport by two U.S. consular officials
and was scheduled to leave for New
York last night.
"There was a lot of help and a lot of-
prayers," her father, Paul R. Mc-
Laughlin, said in Pittsburgh.
HER MOTHER, Mary Louise, said
she would not object to her daugh-
ter's returning to missionary work in
Africa. "If that's what she wants to
do, that's fine. Of course, she won't
go back to Rhodesia, and that pleases
me."
Her father said Sister Janice, a
missionary in Africa since 1969, is
"dedicated to human rights."
It was not known what pressure, if
any, the U.S. government may have
applied in the McLaughlin case. The
United States does not have diplo-
matic relations with the white-
minority government of Rhodesia.

to gays;
HILLBURN, N.Y. (AP) - The land-
mark Motel-on-the-Mountain embarked
on a new policy of catering to homo-
sexuals yesterday and irate local resi-
dents said they feared it would change
tteir community.
Some citizens threatened demonstra-
tions outside the motel, which sits atop
a large hill 30 miles northwest of New
York City and advertised itself as the
"ultimate resort for gays in the North-
ern states."
LOCAL RESIDENTS talked of enlist-
ing the support of Anita Bryant, who led
a successful campaign for repeal of a
Miami-area ordinance prohibiting
housing and job discrimination against
homosexuals.
"I think they are over-reacting," said
Thomas Esposito,. 30, the manager of
the 100-unit motel. "I personally feel
their fears are unwarranted."
,The residents said they were con-
cerned that the motel would lead to es-
tablishment of other homosexual-ori-
ented businesses and draw por-
nographydealers.
~VISIBLE FROM several major
highways on its site near the New York-
New Jersey border, the motel was built
nearly 22 years ago. Its pttractive adap-
tation 6f Japanese architecture won
praise for its beauty.
But the resort fell on financial hard
times in recent years, and the current
owner created consternation when he
advertised the new policy of serving as
"the complete all-private paradise for
gays! "
By some estimates, the homosexual
population in New' York City is as high
