The Saudis want to tow it, the Americans want to study it, the
Australians drink'it and the French want to explore it. Clearly the time
for an International Conference on the Utilization of Icebergs has
come. Debate on those issues began yesterday at the Conference's first
session, but the paticicpants picked an odd site for their icy sum-
mit-Ames, Iowa, one of the most landlocked cities on the continent.
And you thought only Legionnaires and iceberg fanciers had
national conventions. Well, it turns out that socialist leagues do
too-the Young Workrs Liberation League, for example. YWLL will
hold its annual convention this weekend in New York City, it won't be
in the dead of night behind an abandoned cigar warhouse. In fact, it
will be held in the ballroom of that venerable old capitalist institution,
the Statler Hilton Hotel.

DACCA, Bangladesh (AP) - At
least 86 members of the Bangladesh
armed forces were killed during
Sunday's abortive uprising, informed
sources said yesterday.
*Among those killed were 11 "sen-
iormost" air force officers, ranging
in rank from group captain to flying
officer, the unofficial sources said.
There was no independent confirma-
tion of the report.
THE PRESIDENT and chief mar-
tial law administrator, Maj. Gen.
Ziaur Rahman, was apparently a
target of the predawn uprising but
was never in danger during the 2%
hours of sporadic automatic weapons
fire in three parts of Dacca.
Another target was Air Vice Mar-
shal A. G. Mahmud, the govern-
ment's chief negotiator during a
4 -day airport siege with five Japan-
ese Red Army terrorists holding a
jijacked Japan Air Lines jetliner at
Mahmud was in the control tower
when a shootout erupted outside the
airport among dissident soldiers
within the traditionally faction-
ridden Bangladesh armed forces.
MAHMUD, however, escaped injury
and later; kept in touch. with the
hijack negotiations from an undis-
closed position inside a secured area
away from the airport.
Sources said last night that some 60
military personnel had been accused
for their part in the uprising and
were now being held in Dacca central
Court-martial proceedings against
them were expected to begin within a
day or two, the sources said.
GEN. RAHMAN met with top
military brass yesterday to assess

YESTERDAY afternoon, Zia as-

concerned by what he termed the
army's "internal matter" and that

business of developing the impover-

The shooting was concentrated
against air force officers 'at the
airport and at an, adjacent air force
mess, sources said.
The air force, like the army, has
long been divided by political and
familial factions. The most superfi-

within the air force was a long-smol-
