From Wire Service Reports
International
Police strike ends
MONTREAL - Montreal's po-
lice yesterday ended their three-
day-long work slowfdown after
the city was plagued, by 125
holdups, five murders and nu-
merous other violations.
The decision by the city's
2,500 policemen to rsume nor-
mal working was so sudden that
thousands of motorists faced
traffic tickets for parking and
other offenses.
Montreal's streets have been
clogged with illegally parked
cars, and pedestrians have been
in fear of their lives as drivers
ignored speeding limits and stop
signs.
The city of Montreal estimates
that it has lost 50,000 dollars
in fines for traffic violations.
Parking lot companies say busi-
ness was off 15 to 25 per cent.
"The go-slow shows how quick-
ly a civilized city can revert
to' jungle law," said a Chamber
of Commerce spokesperson aft-
er advising store owners to cur-
tail their shopping hours. '
Banks had already put extra
security measures into effect,
limiting their hours, allowing
only customers they knew into
branches and employing armed
guards.
Student war
ANKARA, Turkey - A stu-
dent war between militant young
rightists and left-wingers is es-
calating - with 21 killed in Jan-
uary - and moving off the uni-
versity campuses.
Five of January's victims
were high school stdents, and
two were blue-collar workers
allegedly shot to death by right-
wingers.
'lroops in full battle dress pa-
trolled the streets around Anka-
ra University's campuses when
it reopened this week after a
six-week suspension of classes.
Everyone entering classrooms
was searched for weapons.

DIGEST

I

FEBRUARY 4, 1977

The same day a student was
shot and killed in Istanbul. The
next day a woman student was
seriously wounded at Ankara's
Hacettepe University
Most of those killed in recent
months have been shot or stab-
bed in ambushes, the victims
apparently marked for execu-
tion outside campus grounds, on
the streets, or in cafes. An at-
tack by one side brings retalia-
tion from the other.
University officials say the
rightists are organized in para-
military fashion, with ranks as
high as colonel. One rightist or-
ganization, the Idealist Clubs,
is affiliated with the National
Action party, a member of Pre-
mier Suleyman Demirel four-
party coalition government.
Leftist militants range from
Moscow-liners to far-left Maoists
and are split into at least half
a dozen groups which turn out
a score of separate publications.
Young arrives.
ZANZIBAR - U.S. Envoy An-
drew Young arrived on this In-
dian Ocean spice island yester-
day to talk with African lead-
ers about an American role in
spreading majority rule through-
out southern Africa.
The conversations on whether
it is possible to ward off a
bloody war in Rhodesia take
place against a festive back-
ground on this palm-fringed,
scented isle where the political
parties of Tanzania and Zanzi-
bar, one country since 1964, will
be united to form a new "Par-
ty of Revolution" Saturday.
The island is decked with
flags and bunting and groups
of schoolchildren in brightly
colored uniforms are encamped
beneath the towering coconut
palms and mango trees which
grow throughout the island.
Young, th'e first black Ameri-
can to be appointed ambassador
to the United Nations, will be
principally talking with Presi-
dent Julius Nyerere of Tanza-
nia, spokesman for the five Af-
rican states most closely in-
volved in the growing black-
white confrontation in southern
Africa. These so-called "front-
line" states are hardening their
stand against the Rhodesian

white minority government since
it rejected a new set of British1
proposals -for negotiations lasti
month.
National
Assassinations
WASHINGTON - The chair-
man of the House Assassinations
Committee, given two months to
prove his panel should stay in
business, says he has new evi-
dence that indicates th killers
of John Kennedy and Martin
Luther King Jr. did not act
alone.
After the House voted Wed-
nesday night to continue the
panel through March 31, Rep.
Henry Gonzales, (D-Tex.), told
reporters that he has new, un-
corroborated evidence of con-
spiracies in each assassination.
"We have threshold evidence,
not yet completely corroborated
and cross-checked, that indicate
the strong possibility that Jam-
es Earl Ray did not act alone
in the King slaying and that Lee
Harvey Oswald was not alone
in killing Kennedy," said Gon-
zalez.
The assassinations panel was
established last September, but
a controversy developed over
its request for a budget of $6.5
million a year and its chief
cpunsel, Richard Sprague. The
two-month extension was a com-
promise, and Gonzalez wil1 have
to work with $84,000 a month.
Gonzalez said the new evidence
had developed since the com-
mittee issued its preliminary re-
port in December. He declined
to elaborate, saying it might
jeopardize the investigation, and
he stressed that the leads still
have to be checked out close-
ly.
His remarks conflicted direct-
ly with a Justice Department
report leaked earlier Wednes-
day that concluded Ray alone
killed King.'
After a 10-month investigation,
a team of Justice Department
lawyers rejected theories , that
Ray was only a cog in a con-
spiracy to assassinate the civil
rights leader.
Warn'ke defended
WASHINGTON - Liberal sen-
ators rallied yesterday to the
defense of President Carter's
nomination of Paul Warnke to
head the U.S. Arms Control and
Disarmament Agency and con-
duct strategic arms talks with
the Soviet Union.
At the same time, rumblings
of discontent continued among
more conservative members
who fear that Warnke, a for-
mer assistant secretary of de-
fense, may be too lenient in ne-
gotiating arms cuts with the
Soviet Union.
Democratic Senators George
McGovern of South Dakota and
Gary Hart of Colorado express-
ed concern at the way an anony-

mous memo was being distribu-,
ted around the Capitol, criticiz-
ing Warnke's lack of faith in
strategic weapons.
They said the opposition to
Warnke resembled the pressure
that forced former Kennedy
aide Theodore Sorensen to with-
draw from contention last month
for the post of director of the
Central Intelligence Agency.
Jobs program
WASHINGTON - Commerce
Secretary Juanita Kreps said
yesterday the $4 billion proposed
by President Carter for the pub-
lic works jobs program should
be focused exclusively on com-
munities most in distress.
She told the House public
works subcommittee considering
an extension of the jobs pro-
gram that a revision -is needed
in the existing formula which
allocates 30 per cent of the
money to ereas with unemploy-
ment less than the national av-
erage.
"The program should be fo-
cused on communities experi-
encing the most severe levels
of distress, in terms of unem-
ployment and income," Kreps
said.
Representatives of the Nation-
al League of Cities, the United
States Conference of Mayors
and individual cities had told
the subcommittee Wednesday
that the aid-distribution formu-
la awards job-creating money to
affluent suburbs at the expense
of needy inner cities.
Congress allocated $2 billion
to the Economic Development
Administration last Dec. 23 for;
the jobs program, with a start-'
up date for most projects to
take effect in April. Carter pro-
posed a $4 billion addition to
extend the program for two
years.
There is a backlog of near-
ly $24 billion worth of project
retluests for the grants. Kreps
said the next $2 billion of funds
should go to the most worthy
projecf's in this backlog with
only the most essential changes
being made in the formula.
Nuclear limits
WASHINGTON - Secretary.
of State Cyrus Vance said yes-
terday he intends to explorei
with the Russians a mutual cut-.
,back in conventional weapons
and arms sales as well as low-
ering the limit, that the two
superpowers have tentatively
placed on their nuclear arsenals.
In his first interview since as-

suming office, Vance said a re-<
duction of non-nuclear arms "isi
of critical importance" and "is
the area where the largest
amount of money is spent." d
Therefore, he said, while both
the United States and the Soviet1
Union must "try to block the
logjam" that has stalled com-
pletion of a new treaty restrict-
ing strategic nuclear weapons,
his agenda for his mission to7
Moscow in late March also will
include "the broad subject of
disarmament or arms reduction
in the conventional arms area."
One possible approach, he
said, is to target areas such
as southern Africa and the Mid-
dle East for pilot efforts to roll
back arms shipments from the
two world powers.
At the same time, he said,
he hopes with Soviet leaders to
find a way "out 'of the dold-
rums" that have plagued nego-
tiations to mutually reduce mil-
itary forces in central Europe.
"I don't anticipate making any
breakthrough at that time,"
Vance told reporters. "I think
this will be the first discussions
on a very difficult and very com-
plex set of subjects. I would not
predict any breakthrough at
all."
However, he said, approaeh-
ing weapons problems "with
flexibility" the two sides might
be able to "come up with some
new ideas" to deal with the
complex weapons problem..
Pot lawi
WASHINGTON - Three mem-
bers of Congress yesterday ask-
ed President Carter to support
the decriminalization of mari-
juana possession and its non-
profit transfer in small quanti-
ties.
lens. Jacob Javits (R-N.Y.),
Alan Cranston (D-Calif.), and
Edward Koch (D-N.Y.), wrote
Carter suggesting early action
on the reform of federal mari-
juana laws and the development
of a comprehensive policy on
drug abuse.
They expresseu concern for
a "fundamental unfairness" un-
derlying existing marijuana
laws. They also said the en-
forcement of those laws re-
quires a diversion of scarce law
enforcement resources.
The congressmen' said mari-
juana policy should be primari-
ly a function of state govern-
ment, but that it is difficult
for states to change their poli-
cies unless the federal law is
changed.
Carter has said he supports de-

criminalization for possession of
marijuana in small amounts.
The congressmen said they'
would introduce legislation in
the House and Senate to set a
maximum civil fine of $100 for
possession and not-for-profit
transfer of one ounce or less
of marijuana.
The current penalty for mari-
juana possession is imprison-
ment for up to one year and a
fine of up to $5,000. This feder-
al penalty could be superseded
by any more stringent state
laws.
Burns bugged
WASHINGTON - Federal Re-
serve Board Chairman Arthur
Burns said Thursday he will co-
operate with President Carter
and- Congress in encouraging
faster economic growth and re-
duced unemployment this year.
However, Burns to the House
Banking Comiittee he doesn't
think Carter's $31 billion eco-
nomic program will make much

stration as he did with the ad-
ministration of former Presi-1
dent Gerald Ford.c
He said the board's money3
growth targets for 1977 are for
an increase in the basic money
supply of 4.5 to 6.5 per cent.3
Treasury Secretary Michael
Blumenthal told the committee
Wednesday that money growth,
in that range should help en-
sure the success of Carter's eco-
nomic program.
Burns said he agrees with Car-
ter's goals of a 6 per cent eco-
nomic growth rate and a 6.5 per
cent unemployment rate by the
end of 1977. The jobless rate
in December was 7.8 per cent.
"Our nation needs to make
progress during 1977 in creating
more jobs and in expanding our
industrial capacity," Burns said.
"We at the Federal Reserve ful-
ly recognize this fact, as our
recent policy actions have made
clear."
State
Lemon law
LANSING - Rep. Perry Bul-
lard, (D-Ann Arbor), today re-
introduced legislation allowing
car buyers to stop payments on
lemons.
The bill easily passed the
House but fell one vote short
of approval in the state Senate
last year.

The measure repeals what is
legally known as the holder in
due course doctrine, which now
requires a car owner to con-
tinue making insta lment pay-
ments even if the car dealer
refuses to repair defects in the
car.
A companion measure intro-
duced by Bullard would pro-
hibit repossession of an auto-
mobile unless a show cause
hearing is held in court.

which he contended should grow

ed to his position by former
President Richard Nixon, said
he has had the same close con-
