FBI NAMES THREE ANTI-CASTRO EXILES:
Cubans charged in Letelier plot
WASHINGTON tAP) - Three anti-
Castro Cuban exiles were charged
yesterday by the FBI in the plot to kill
former Chilean diplomat Orlando
Letelier, who died in 1976 when a bomb
exploded in his car on a Washington

in Newark, N.J., late Thursday.
The two other suspects being sought
by the FBI are Jose Dionisio Suarez
Esquivel, 39, and Virgilio Paz Romero,
26, who are also naturalized U.S.
SUAREZ SPENT a year in jail in
Washington on contempt charges for
refusing to testify before a grand jury
investigating Letelier's death. But he
was released last April when the grand
jury term expired and FBI officials
believe he went to California. Paz was
last known to be in the New York area.
The FBI last month charged a fourth
man, Michael Townley, in the con-
spiracy to murder Letelier. Townley,
an American who had lived for many
years in Chile, is reportedly
cooperating with federal prosecutors
who have charged he was an agent of
Chile's special police.
Townley is being held without bail.
IN ADDITION, two other Cuban
exiles being held on unrelated federal
warrants are suspected of involvement
in the Letelier case.
One of them is Guillermo Novo Sam-
pol, a brother of Ignacio Novo Sampol.
The sixth man is Alvin Ross Diaz.
Ross and Guillermo Novo Sampol
were flown to New York by U.S. mar-
shals last Friday after their arrest in
Miami on April 14.
MIAMI FBI agent George Cannon, in
a sworn statement filed in federal court
Wednesday, said the bomb blast that
killed Letelier on Sept. 21, 1976, may
have been detonated by an electronic
beeper. The statement said such a
beeper was found in the glove compar-
tment of a gray 1977 Lincoln Continen-
tal driven by Diaz.
Letelier was foreign minister and
ambassador to the United States under
Marxist President Salvador Allende,
who was killed following a bloody coup
Townley's wife, Mariana Callejas de
Townley, has told the Washington Post
her husband is cooperating fully with
U.S. authorities and has named about

A WOMAN who accompanied
Koester identified herself as his wife,
and the car vhich the fugitive was
driving was registered in her name.
The woman was apparently drunk.
A police source described her as
"bombed to the gills" and said she had
passed out in the car by the time
Koester was picked up at the party
store. It is unlikely that charges will be
pressed against her.
Ann Arbor police also picked up
another wanted man Thursday night.
Charles Redmond, 36, who was sought
in Flint on a felony narcotics charge,
was spotted by police on the 1100 block
of Broadway. He was immediately
Police say that Redmond had a pistol
in his possession at the time of the
arrest. They will present evidence to
the prosecutor's office in order to ob-
tain a warrant against Redmond for
carrying a concealed weapon.

WHYiSN'T DRAUGHT BEER
SPELLED DRAFT BEER?
This is one of those unanswerable questions, like, "Which came first,
the chicken or the colonel?"
However, discussing it can be quite rewarding.
So, as your Dean of Beer, I suggest you gather a group of fellow
scholars and ponder the question over a significant sample of draught
Schlitz. (Or is it draft?)
This procedure is known, in layman's terms, as a "Beer Party:"
This will undoubtedly raise a question for further study: Why does it
taste so good?
To obtain proper research materials, consult the Yellow Pages for the
name of your local Schlitz distributor
