'Rebels' slain
NAIROBI, Kenya - Hundreds
of Langi tribesmen suspected of
plotting against Uganda's Presi-
dent Idi Amin were strangled
and clubed to death on the
night of Feb. 18 at Kampala's
military police headquarters, ac-
cording to a Ugandan refugee
who said he -was there.
"ALL THE HEADS had been
smashed in, and the floor was
littered with eyes and teeth,"
Mugabi was quoted as saying.
"During the previous night we
did not hear any shots, only
some thudding noises from the
adjoining rooms."
Amin claimed he uncovered
and crushed a plot to overthrow
him, two weeks ago.
According to the Ugandan
strongman, the plot was master-
minded by Chote and centered
among the predominantly Chris-
tilan Langis and Acholis.
THE REPORTS, and particu-
larly the death of Anglican
Archbishop Janani Luwum in
what the government said was
an auto accident, have drawn
howls of outrage from around
the world.
Amid the mounting tension,
Amin on Friday ordered all the
Americans in Uganda - about
240 persons, many of them mis-
sionaries - not to leave the
country and to meet with him
Monday at 11 a.m.
Moscow fire
MOSCOW - Soviet officials
were still giving no casualty fig-
ures yesterday on a, fire that
roared through an elevator shaft
of Moscow's mammoth Hotel
Rossiya and ravaged its north
wing and a central tower.
Unconfirmed reports circulat-
ing in diplomatic circles told
of bodies being carried from
the burning building Friday
night and said 30 to 40, Rus-
sians might have been killed,
but no foreign guests of the
3,200-room showcase hotel.
REPAIR CREWS using six
crane trucks worked through a
sleet storm Saturday to replace
exploded windows in the fire-
blackened wing, still draped with
sheets and ropes some guests
used in attempts to get to low-
er balconies.
Russian television did not men-
tion the fire and one evening
newspaper in the city covered
the story with two paragraphs
at the bottom of its third page.
Guests milled about the lobby
of the giant hotel the day after
the fire, and sat on wet and
smoke-damaged salvaged lug-
gage while they waited for new
"It's a mess up there on some
of the floors," said a Japanese
guest who had been allowed
back into the damaged area.
"There is smoke and no elec-
tricity and the doors are so
charred that it's hard to read
the numbers."
Egypt gets loan
CAIRO - Four oil-rich Arab
countries will provide Egypt
with more than $2 billion in
funds and deposits to help the

country through its economicl
difficulties, Egyptian and Saudil
sources confirmed yesterday. I
An official at the Saudi Arab-,
ian Embassy said the payment i
would be made within a month..
He declined to give figures but4
said "it is a huge amount"
An Egyptian source whose
ministry is involved said the]
package from Saudi Arabia, Ku-
wait, Qatar and the United Arab,
Emirates consisted of a $1 bil-
lion fund and equal amount in,
deposes in the country's banks;
to finance investment projects.
THE DEPOSITS will be for
10 years. Conditions and inter-;
est rates will be determined
later, the Egyptian said.-
The Saudi source said his gov-;
ernment also was trying to con-
vince other rich Arab govern-1
ments to extend long-term loans
to Egypt to "guarantee a stable.
economic situation for at least
five years."
Following food price riots in
Cairo and other cities last
month, President Anwar Sadat

fore his open-door investment,

BEIRUT. Lebanon - Palestin-'
ian guerrillas have agreed to
pull back from south Lebanese
border regions abutting Israel1
to avert a showdown with right-,
wing Christians that could re-
kindle Lebanon's civil war, gov-
ernment sources said yesterday.
In return, the sources said,
Syria agreed that the Syrian-
dominated Arab League neace-
keeping army would not storm
tank-ringed Palestinian refugee,
camas in Beirut to disarm guEr-
rillas by force.
The sources said the com-I
promise was worked out be-
tween Palestinian guerrilla lead-
ers and Syrian President Haf-
ez Assad in Damascus Wednes-
day. A final agreement reported-
ly was worked out Friday at a
meeting between Lebanese Pre-
sident Elias Sarkis and Yasir

N.Y.C. still

NEW YORK - New York City,
unable to pay its March bills,
once again is facing default un-
less the federal government
floats it a $255 million loan, city
officials say.
The officials warn that t h e
city might have trouble acquir-

requested from the federal gov-
ernment Friday by the State
Emergency Financial Control
David Margolis, chairman of
Colt industries and a member
of the Board, says- the city is
now in the position of suppli-
cant, not "a credible borrower."
"I DON'T know how the Con-
trol Board can assure the fed-
eral government that this $255
million will be repaid," he said.
"The request should include the
fact that the city could go broke
next Friday."
By then, according to Camo-
troller Harrison Goldin, the city
will face a $20 million to $25 mil-
lion cash shortage, a sum he
expects can be deferred.
But, says Golden, the r e a 1
crunch will come March 11
when a $55 million payroll is
due. Two days later, another
$120 million in debt service must
be paid.

Tonight in Auditorium 4 of the
Modern Languages Building
(Luchino Visconti, 1942)
OBSESSIONE is the late Luchino Visconti's first film and a key
work in film history. Starring Massimo Girotti and Clara Calamat,
its classic plot-young wife and virile lover plan to kill her older
husband-is transformed into a study of obsession an guilt. The
location filming, the performances, and the direction of this
neo-realist film are fresher and more compelling than ever.
"Cannot be called less than a masterpiece, so flawless is it in
its conception and presentation of character, so admirably
controlled in its narration, and so consistent in its atmosphere."
-vernon Jarrett, The Italian Cinema. Italian/English subtitles.
(Luchino Visconti, 1954)
SENSO, an exemplary work of Luchino Visconti, reveals his early
fascination with history and with the baroque. The tone of the
story is cool, neo-classic, and detached; set against luxurious sets
and actual palazzos that underline the beauty of the countryside,
SENSO is an extraordinary account of Garibaldi's military cam-
pign in and round Venice and Verona in the 1860's as envisioned
by Luchino Visconti. "SENSO is beyond question one of the
greatest, and also the most Viscontian of all Visconti's films."
