Lead, arsenic found SENATE REPORT
in La. waterways Bomb attacks doubled last year
WASHINGTON (A - Preliminary tests show substantial
amounts of lead and arsenic are being poured into Louisiana water-
ways, federal water quality officials have disclosed.
Although they declined Thursday to provide details on the re-
port which apparently is the first of its kind, government witnesses
advised a Senate subcommittee their preliminary tests are being
After chief enforcement officer Murray Stein told of the ini-
tial testing results involving intrastate waters, Assistant Secretary
of the Interior Carl Klein said a final determination "will have to
be made by a judge. And I would rather not have Mr. Stein make
that determination until an analytical test has been run on it."
Sen. Philip Hart (D-Mich. the subcommittee chairman, said
later he takes the testimony to mean the case involves " the lower
reaches of the Mississippi."
In Louisiana, Robert LaFleur. director of the state's Stream
Control Commission, said Thursday night: "I know they have been
taking samples and looking for it, but I don't know where they took
them or what they got. They don't tell us much."

number of bomb attacks or at-
tempted attacks in the United
States a g a i n s t government
buildings, embassies, industries,
churches and synagogues has
nearly doubled in the past year,
Senate investigators were told
Philip Manuel, an investigator
for the Senate permanent inves-
tigations subcommittee, said the
number of bombing incidents
has risen from an average of
1.6 per cent in 1969 to 3.1 per
day through the first six months
of this year.
Nearly 100 of the incidents'
documented in a study done for
the subcommittee, said Manuel,
occurred in high schools and
elementary schools "indicating
that teen-agers and even young-
er children are taught how to
use explosives and incendiaries
and indeed are using them."
The 150-page study done by
Manuel and three investigators
on loan from the General Ac-
counting Office covered three
chief areas--bombings and at-
tempted bombings, thefts of ex-
plosives and terroristic attacks
on police and police installa-
The study and Manuel's testi-
mony prompted subcommittee
chairman John McClellan (D-
Ark), to say:
"With all this information
now available it seems to me no
citizen can any longer be com-
placent about the problem or
be under an illusion about there

tionary effort to destroy this
U prof turns
down UC post
From Wire Service Reports
BERKELEY, Calif.-Prof. Wil-
liam Alston of the University's
philosophy department has refused
a post at the University of Cali-
fornia because of California's re-
fusal to rehire black communist
instructor Angela Davis.
Alston was to have served as
Mills professor of philosophy at
the Berkeley campus for the win-
ter and spring quarters. He re-
fused the post, calling the decision
of the U.C. regents not to rehire
Miss Davis at UCLA a "particular-
ly flagrant case of political in*,er-
ference" in university affairs.
Alston is presently vacationing
near Aspen, Col. and was unavail-
able for comment yesterday.

The .arrests came following
three nights of racial disturb-

Mayor George Rogers said he
thought the, arrests had errad-

that have been at work through-

Racial violence broke out here
early in July and one b 1 a c k

three others were injured.
Three whites were charged
with murder. Trouble flared
again this week, with reports of

said weapons, including auto-

Kenyon said city police, aided
by 40 state troopers, would con-

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (AP) - Leftist guer-

Brazilian diplomat yesterday and then offered to
exchange them for prisoners held by the govern-
A note delivered to the newspaper El Diario
did not give the number or names of political
prisoners to be freed for the hostages.
The note said the U.S. official, Dan A. Mitrione,
50, was shot in the chest when he was seized but
claimed his condition was not serious. The guer-
rillas failed in attempts to abduct two other U.S.
embassy officials who suffered injuries in their
The latest kidnapings followed a pattern that
began in Latin America nearly a year ago, with
guerrillas seizing foreign diplomats and holding
them hostage for the. release of prisoners.
One diplomat, West German Ambassador Count
Karl von Spreti, was killed by Guatemalan guer-
rillas in April after the government refused to
free 17 political prisoners.
The kidnapers, members of the leftist Tupa-
maros band, seized Mitrione as he was driving to
work by blocking his car and dragging him into
another vehicle. The Brazilian, Aloysio Mares Dias
Comigde, 41, who previously had been assigned to
Miami, was taken from his home.
The guerrillas delivered their communique to
the newspaper which relayed it to the police.
Included in the communique was a medical
report on Mitrione that said he was in no danger
from the chest wound. The guerrillas also sent a
note, reportedly written by Mitrione, and the serial
number of his watch to prove to authorities that
they had him in their custody.
Mitrione, a World War II Navy veteran and
former Indiana policeman, was public safety ad-
viser for the Agency for International Develop-
ment, which dispenses U.S. foreign aid abroad.
Dias Comigde was Brazil's consul in Montevideo
and first secretary in the embassy.
Moments after police announced the double
kidnaping, Gordon Jones, 26, second secretary at
at the U.S. Embassy, showed up dazed and in-
jured at the suburban home of Juan Antonio
"He reached my house in a daze, and asked
incoherently if he could use the telephone," Pao-
lino said. Paolino quoted Jones as saying he had

kimer, N.Y., "played dead" when guerrillas hit
him on the head as he entered his garage, a U.S.
Embassy spokesman reported. He said the guer-
