Italian terrorists kill guard in raid
ROME (AP) - A terrorist
assassination team shot and killed a
prison guard at point-blank range in
northeastern Italy yesterday and
anonymous callers -claimed respon-
sibility for the attack in the name of two
groups - one of them the Red
In Rome, meanwhile, authorities
charged three more persons - two of
them still at large - with the Red
Brigades' kidnapping and slaying of
former Premier Aldo Moro. Six other
suspects had been charged Monday.
ONE OF THE anonymous callers to
the news media said the Red Brigades,
Italy's most feared urban guerrilla
group, had carried out the ambush of
Sgt. Antonio Santoro, 52, chief of guards
at Udine Prison. Suspected members of
the Red Brigades had beet held at the
prison last year.
Another caller said the killing was the
work of the leftist radical Armed
Udine police said they had no clues
yet to the identity of Santoro's assailan-
ts. They said two men and a woman ap-
proached him as he left home to walk to
the nearby jail, shot him and escaped in
two waiting cars. He was the 10th per-
son killed by terrorists in Italy this
NINE PERSONS have been charged
so far in the Moro case, but in-
vestigators said they lack the identities
of many more they believe were ac-
tively involved. They estimate that
about 30 persons planned and carried
out the abduction and slaying.
A dozen terrorists seized Moro March
16 in a Rome street ambush in which
they killed his five bodyguards. Moro's
bullet-riddled body was found in a car
in downtown Rome 54 days later.
Of those charged, three men
described as among the most
dangerous members of Red Brigades
are at large - Mario Moretti, Prospero
Gallinari and Corrado Alunni. Accor-
ding to some reports, they have fled the
country. The other six, including two
women, are in jail under special guard.
CHARGED yesterday were
Gallinari, Alunni and Fiora Pirri Ardiz-
zone, a woman professor at Catanzaro
University in the south of Italy. She is in
jail, having been arrested along with
three young men April 6 near Naples
when police raided a beachhouse.
She was described as belonging to
Forefront, a group held responsible for
a series of bombings.
All except the Ardizzone woman have
been linked to the Red Brigades, one of
several Marxist guerrilla groups
engaged in bombings, killings, shooting
people in the legs and industrial
The other five in jail were arrested in
Rome a few days after Moro was found.
The long list of charges against the
nine included the kidnapping and
premeditated murder of Moro, multiple
murder for the death of Moro's five
police bodyguards, illegal possession of
war materiel, and larceny for allegedly
having stolen five cars used in the Moro
Consumers tackle meat-y prices

think there's a strong possibility that if
prices go up the way it's expected to,
that people will start buying less meat.
You hope it does, at least," said George
Robinson, owner of White Market.
RICHARD Posthumus, executive
vice-president of the Michigan Beef In-
dustry Commission, a group which
provides information on the state beef
industry, claims prices will not rise
much higher in the next several mon-
ths. But Posthumus said he believes the
recent price upswing is just another

part of a never-ending cycle.
"We operate on a ten-year cycle in
the supply and demand fashion. As
demand increases, more people enter
the industry which then expands the
supply. When people start demanding
less, suppliers leave the industry, for-
cing supplies to go down and prices to
increase," he said.
At one local store, prices listed for
hotdogs were $1.59 a pound, cooked
salami $1.78 a pound and large bologna
$1.69 'a pound. Consumers, however,
still keep buying the usual amounts of
"Look, everyone has to eat and
everything is expensive these days,"
said Majid Kamifiroozie.
ONE LOCAL store owner said he
fully agreed with the increase in meat
prices. He said he sympathized with the
plight of the farmer who have always
been the "victim of the price crunch."
"I think meat prices are finally at the
level near where they should be. While
other commodities have continued to
increase prices, meat has remained the
same until the last several weeks," said
Ray Knight, manager of Knight's
Postlumus said beef prices avoided
the nationwide inflationary spiral
because of more efficient production
methods developed by cattle raisers,
which tend to drive prices down. He
said so many cattle raisers have left the
industry that production has sharply
decreased causing a low supply and
HE MAINTAINS prices will start to
level off within several months and
avoid any signs of large scale consumer
Posthumus, however, warned prices
would not drop substantially for at least
three or four years. He attributes his
pessimistic estimate to the sufficient
number of cattle raisers in the country.
"Right now, cattle raisers have to
keep female calves for two years before
they give birth, and then have to wait
another two years before her calf can
be slaughtered. Therefore, we won't see
the kind of low beef prices we've ex-
perienced in the last three years for at
least another four years," said
.A spokesman for the Livestock
Market News, a federal-state
cooperative which also gives infor-
mation on beef prices, revealed yester-
day that the total amount of cattle in the
nation decreased by more than ning per
cent in the last two years.
"You can't expect cattle raisers to
consistently raise livestock when they
keep losing money," said the

the battle of liberation which means the
return of our land through peaceful
means and without shedding a drop of
blood of any of my sons, soldiers and of-
ficers, I won't hesitate to act accor-
dingly," Sadat said.
"But if there is anything that affects
my territory or the sovereignty of
Egypt, I will give you the order as I did
in October," he said, referring to the
October 1973 war in which Egyptian
troops crossed the Suez Canal and
overran frontline positions.
"We offer Israel peace. We offer
Israel security. But Israel will not have
Arab land and will not have sovereignty
WHEN HE visited Israel in Novem-
ber, Sadat offered to make peace in
return for the withdrawal of Israeli
troops from Arab lands and the
creation of a homeland for the three
million Palestinians dispersed with the
birth of the Jewish state in 1948. It was
the first offer for permanent peace in
the 30 years of Israel's existence.
To placate Israeli fears that a
Palestinian state on its borders could be
used as a launching pad for more
guerrilla attacks, Sadat has suggested
the Palestinian homeland could be
federated with Jordan.

WASHINGTON (AP)-A trash plant
operated by the Bureau of Mines in
suburban Maryland consumes five tons
of garbage a week and transforms it in-
to reusable aluminium, glass, steel and
tin, reports National Geographic.
The bureau's plant, constructed from
off-the-shelf mineral processing
equipment, was made to show city
governments and private industry that
trash can be an untapped resource that
can be recycled economically.
In most cities, it costs an average of
$6 a ton to dispose of a ton of trash, but
certain cities have tighter pollution -
