MIAMI (AP)-Defense attorney Ellis
Rubin yesterday dropped his attempt to
get "Kojak" star Telly Savalis to testify
in the television murder trial of 15-year-
old Ronny Zamora.
Rubin released Savalis from his sub-
poena, saying earlier decisions by the
judge in the case would make a fight to
hear from the star of "Kojak" fruitless.
"I SEE NO reason to bring Telly
Savalis," said Rubin, citing a Tuesday
ruling that excluded a psychologist's
Judge Paul Baker ruled at the close
of Tuesday's session that psychologist
Margaret Hanratty Thomas could not
testidy as an expert because she could
not cite a specific past instance of
homicide caused by obsessive viewing.

"This is the premise for our whole
simple defense," said Rubin in arguing
to admit her testimony.
Dr. Thomas, an assistant dean at
Florida Technological University in
Orlando, said,, she has published 15
professional papers on media violence
and its relationship to aggressive
"EXPOSURE to television violence
can shape a child's conception of what
is right and wrong," she told the judge
in arguments with both the jury and the
defendant excluded.
Darrell Agrella, 14-who, along with
Zamora, is charged with first degree
murder in the shooting death last June 4
of Elinor Haggart, 83-is to be tried

Dr. Walter Reid, a clinical
psychologist who examined Zamora,
testified the teen-ager "may be able to
tell you why something is wrong, but it
doesn't seem to keep him from doing
it." Under cross-examination he con-
ceded Zamora "can distinguish right
from wrong."
Defense psychistrist Michael
Gilbert, in a disposition, says he
questioned Zamora in jail two weeks
ago while the defendant was drugged.
The deposition quotes Zamora as
saying, "I took the gun and I went to the
coffee table and I started fooling
around. I could have even killed myself,
I should have."
Za mora is reported to have said that

Agrella handed him the gun whig
collecting money, jewelry and othdr
valuables from the woman's house.
"One minute I held it (the gun) real
tight. I don't know why, I was scared;
and before I knew it.. it happened o'
fast ... the gun shot her. i
"I saw her fall back, no screams or'
blood. I just didn't believe I shot her.-It'

Carter makes unscheduled tour

NEW YORK (AP) - President
Carter, accompanied by his housing
secretary and New York Mayor
Abraham Beame, made an unsched-
uled visit yesterday to the South
Bronx, an area as bleak as any
blighted neighborhood in the nation.
Carter, who came to New York on
Tuesday to address the United
Nations General Assembly, made the
morning auto tour of the area
devastated by arson and crime with
the mayor' and Patricia Harris,
secretary of housing and urban
development, at his side.
THE OFFICIALS emerged from
the presidential limousine twice. At
the second stop, Carter stood in the
rubble of what once were tenements
and ordered that a study be made as
to what in the South Bronx "ought to
be salvaged and what ought to be
torn down."
He told Harris to "get a map of the
whole area and show me what should
be done."
Carter told Bronx residents that
blocks that were beyond rehabilita-
tion could be converted into "recrea-
tional institutions."
The President's first stop was on
Washington Avenue, near 168th

Street, in the Claremont section of
the Bronx where he talked with
tenants who are rehabilitating a
six-story tenement with the aid of
federal funds.
ONE TENANT, Claude Briley,
said, "Hi, Jimmy. Glad to see you in
the Bronx, checking out conditions."
"How do you think you are making
out?" Carter asked Briley.
"Fine," Briley said. "We hope to
make more progress on a wider
As the motorcade, accompanied by
20 police cars and motorcycles, all
with sirens wailing, moved through
the city's northernmost borough,
Carter saw the blight that has
destroyed entire neighborhoods.
The police precinct in the neighbor-
hood near where Carter toured is
known as Fort Apache because of the
siege atmosphere of the area in
recent years. Because of the ravage
by arson there, the Fire Department
refers to the area as Gasoline Alley.
ABOUT 150 persons, mostly black
and Hispanic, were gathered at the
rehabilitated apartment building
when Carter arrived, having been
told only moments earlier that the

President was en route.
They cheered and waved at Carter,
who told Harris, "This is a beautiful
building. I hope the whole area can
be turned around."
Carter told Ramon Rueda, execu-
tive director of the group rehabilitat-
ing the building, "What a surprise!

of Bronx
I'm proud of what you are doing. I
wanted to come down here and see
what you all are doing."
Rueda told Carter that if he woul4.
assist them in getting more federal
money, "we could show a serious d
dent in the South Bronx" by improv- -
ing substandard housing.

Marxist party leader
assassinated in Du-blin

DUBLIN, Ireland (ap)-A lone gun-
man shot and killed Seamus Costello,
leader of the Marxist Irish Republican
Socialist party, on a Dublin street
yesterday, police said.
The assassin pumped four pistol shots
into Costello, 38, as he stepped out of his
car in the city's North Strand quarter, a.
spokesperson reported.
The gunman ran off as Costello slum-
ped dead on the sidewalk.
The killing climaxed a bloody
ideological feud between the IRSP and
the Official wing of the outlawed Irish
Republican Army.
COSTELLO was one on the founders
of the revolutionary IRSI in December
1974, disillusioned with the Officials'
cease-fire with the British army in Nor-
thern Ireland.
Since then, the two factions have
periodically shot it out in Northern
Ireland and Dublin. There have been at
least a dozen killings, plus countless
shootings, kidnapings and other at-
The IRSP, with an estimated 50 ac-
tivists in Ireland, seeks to end British
rule in Northern Ireland, like the IRA's

Official and Provisional Wings, but also
aims for a popular -uprising that will
establish a Marxist republic.


All too often, when the
party ends, the trouble begins.
People who shouldn't be
doing anything more active than
going to sleep are driving a car.
Speeding and weaving their
way to death.
Before any of your friends
drive home from your party,
make sure they aren't drunk.
Don't be fooled because
they drank only beer or wine.
Beer and wine can be just as
intoxicating as mixed drinks.

And don't kid yourself
because they may have had
some black coffee. Black coffee
can't sober them up well enough
to drive.
If someone gets too drunk
to drive, drive him yourself. Or
call a cab. Or offer to let him
sleep over.
Maybe your friend won't
be feeling so good on the
morning after, but you're going
to feel terrific.

BOX 2345
I want to keep my friends alive
for the next party.
Tell me what else I can do.
