Spanish politics
MADRID - The rescue of two
kidnaped Spanish officials has
apparently enabled the govern-
ment of Premier Adolfo Suarez
'to go ahead with effort to liberal-
ize Spain, including the grant-
ing of amnesty to more politi-
cal prisoners.

-formal application by the
Spanish Communist Party for
full legal status.
The party has been banned
since the end of the 1936-1939
civil war, although it has been
operating openly since late last
year when its leader, Santiago
Carrillo, was released on bail
after being held in jail.
Legal status is necessary if
the Communists want to t a k e
part in the elections.

preme court to rule whether the
Communists' aims clash with a
Spanish law banning parties
aiming to set up a totalitarian

Guerrilla action
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Arab na-
tions imposed drastic new curbs
on Palestinian guerrillas yester-
day to try to bring the entire
resistance movement under firm
Syrian and Lebanese control.
The decision aims at ending
Lebanon's role as the last un-
restricted commando base, with
far-reaching effects on Pales-
tinian ability to wage war and
influence Arab policy.

WASHINGTON - Hoping forj
early agreement on a.new Pan-1
ama Canal treaty, N.S. nego-
tiators leave for Panama on Sun-
day to resumetalks that former
President Gerald Ford hialted
last May when the canal's fu-
ture became a campaign issue.
The Carter administration has
given "highest priority" to con-
cluding a new treaty this year
in order to avoid entanglement
of the canal issue in the 1978
congressional elections.
Ford suspended the negotia-
tions after conservative chal-
lenger Ronald Reagan generat-
ed an enthusiastic response from'
voters by pledging to "keep the
canal" if elected.
State Department officials say
they hope a treaty proposal can
be ready by June to- give the'
Senate ample time to debate nd
ratify the accord before the
congressional recess this fall.
The two countries already
have agreed on transferring to
Panamag'jurisdictio over the
Canal Zone within three years'
after a new treaty goes into ef-
fect. This would give Panama
authority over all services -
such as educationsand the ad-
ministration of justice - which
are now controlled by the Unit-
ed States under the existing
1903 treaty.
The chief remaining differ-
ences in the negotiations center'

The sudden death, last year of this too much neglected Italian
filmmaker calls foi an exposure oP his films as well as a sen-
sitive consideration of the man. Understanding Pier Paolo Pasolini
is the same thing as understanding his cinema: in his own words
". cinema represents reality with reality," and so when we
watch a film by one 'whom we can recognize as once being the
most influential and controversial director in the Italian Cinema,
we graciously become his mesmerized subjects as we joyfully
witness Pasolini's unique, mysterious "vision of life.
Pier Paolo Posolini, 1971) 7:00 only--MLB 4
In Pasolini's rediscovered film conception of MEDEA, he presents
Maria Calias in her first screen 4performance in a most brilliant
rendering of the classical figure from a magical world When she
is brought by Jason and the Argonauts to Corinth and the Court
of Creon, she finds herself in a strange, materialistic world. Her
struggle is the struggle between these two worlds, between myth
and reason, nature and civilization, a struggle that drives Medea
to make drastic use of her magic powers. Filmed in exotic color
in Syria, Turkey, and Italy. "A supreme drama achievement .
the film will rank as a rare work of cinema art."--Genet, New
Yorker. Italian with subtitles.

Rarely seen in this country, LA CHIENNE (The Bitch), is
this great French director's first sound feature and certainly
one of his best. A middle-aged man (Michael Simon) falls
