In the news this morning

International
NICOSIA, Cyprus - Unseasonally heavy
rain lashed Cyprus on yesterday, adding to
the suffering of thousands of refugees living
in fields and forests. But the cease-fire seemed
to be holding. Police arrested three persons-
and later released two of them - in connec-
tion with the violent anti-American rioting that
resulted in the shooting death of U.S. Ambas-
sador Rodger Davies on Monday. In Ankara,
Turkish Premier Bulent Ecevit said his gov-
ernment is ready to negotiate "reasonable"
changes in the demarcation line carved out by
Turkish forces on Cyprus. But he said that
"basically" the present line, which slices off
the top third of Cyprus, would be maintained.
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Hurling grenades and
firing machine guns, Palestinian guerrillas
forced Sidon, Lebanon's third largest city, to
shut down yesterday. But the show of force
ended after four hours, and no casualties were
reported. It was the second major outbreak
of Palestinian-Lebanese friction in three weeks,
and was prevented from exploding into a full-
blown crisis through quick intervention by top
guerrilla leader Yasir Arafat and Lebanese
officials. A guerrilla spokesman said Arafat,
who was in Damascus, personally ordered the
guerrillas to leave the southern coastal town.
Sidon's governor, Henry Lahhoud had appeal-
ed for army intervention.

National
WASHINGTON - Atty. Gen. William Saxbe
said yesterday it is doubtful that military
deserters and draft dodgers will be asked to
join the armed forces, the Peace Corps or
VISTA as a condition for amnesty. Saxbe said
it is possible that the Ford administration
could choose to require only a request for re-
patriation as a condition for amnesty.
WASHINGTON-A moderation of food price
increases slowed the rate of inflation in July,
allowing Americans to increase their real buy-
ing power for only the third time in the last
12 months, the government reported yester-
day. The Labor Department said the increase
in its cost of living index amounted to eight-
tenths of one per cent in July, or an annual
rate of9.6 per cent. That represents a damp-
ening of an inflation rate which has pushed
prices to 11.8 per cent above where they were
a year ago.
Weather
Today will be warm and humid with highs
in the upper 80's. Tonight will be partly cloudy
with a 20 per cent chance of rain and lows in
the mid-60's. Winds will be puffing along at 10
to 18 miles an hour. Tomorrow will be much
the same, with slightly lower temperatures
expected.

Cops nab
'alph abet
bomber'
LOS ANGELES A) - A mild-
mannered Yugoslavian immi-
grant arrested as the "alphabet
bomber" posed problems yes-
terday for police trying to sort
out conflicting reports about
whether or not he is able to
speak.
Police said Muharem Kurbe-
govic seemed to go into trances.
His job supervisor and immi-
gration authorities said they
believed he was a mute; his
landlady said he could speak.
AUTHORITIES said they were
sure that Kurbegovic, 31, was
"Isaac Rasim," the foreign-
accented man who in telephone
calls and tape recordings claim-
ed responsibility for the Aug.
6 bombing at Los Angeles In-
ternational Airport that killed
three persons.
In his messages, Rasim said
he was the military leader of an
organization called Aliens of
America. He was nicknamed
the alphabet bomber after
threatening to spell out the
group's name "in blood" unless
immigration and sex laws were
repealed.
Kurbegovic was arrested
Tuesday night in the men's rest-
room of a Hollywood take-out
restaurant and was booked for
investigation of murder in the
airport bombing. He was expect-
ed to be arraigned today.
POLICE said he was appar-
ently acting alone and that his
group doesn't exist. In Kurbe-
govic's $85-a-month Hollywood
apartment officers said they
found explosives, incendiary de-
vices, gunpowder, components
for explosives and chemicals.
Police said Kurbegovic de-
posited a cassette tape record-
ing in the restroom where he
was arrested. They said the
tape contained disjointed philo-
sophical ramblings similar to
those on earlier tapes, but did
not contain a bomb threat.
FBI agents and plainclothes
policemen had been following
Kurbegovic for more than 18
hours prior to his arrest be-
cause they believed the bomb-
er was an alien with a record
of sex offenses. Kurbegovic was
arrested once for lewd con-
duct, but the charge was drop-
ped.
KURBEGOVIC was unarmed
when arrested Tuesday night
and offered no resistance,po-
lice said, although customers in
the restaurant reported hearing
a scuffle.
"He has gone into trances
from time to time," said police
Cmdr. Peter Hagan. "He puts
a block between himself and
the outside world." He said the
man refused to answer police
questions.
Stephen Smith, Kurbegovic's
supervisor at RPM Industries
where he worked as a design
engineer for two years, said
Kurbegovic was believed to be
a mute by his fellow workers.
He had been among several

workers laid off Friday.
Kurbegovic's landlady, Lillian
r.osi, who rented an the apart
Gerbosi, who rented the apart-
ment to him March 1, claimed,
"He would say good morning to
me. He definitely spOke, but he
didn't speak to people much. He
said I could call him Mu for
short."
She said Kurbegovic had
many boxes and cartons in his
apartment, but s1. didn't know
what was inside them. "I'm
dumbfounded about this.
