N.Y.C. gets ready
for Dem. Convention

THE MICHIGAN DAILY Thursday, July 8, 1976
Alleged terrorists escape from jail

NEW YORK t': - New York,
mired in financial and social
problems, is making elaborate
preparations for next week's
Democratic National Convention
in hopes that visitors will leave
with a favorable impression of
the Big Apple.
With a successful Bicentennial
celebration behind them, offi-
cials want to continue the pro-
cess of rebuilding the city's
image through a successful con-
vention. Packets proclaiming
"Welcome to Our Home Town"
will be given to convention dele-
gates advising them how to see
the best and avoid the worst -
high prices, bargain sales which
really amount to ripoffs and less
desireable neighborhoods.
The spectre of bankruptcy and
the pain of deterioration have
had visible effects of a city

which once was acknowledged to
represent the best and biggest of
America. Now, the city that has
become the butt of jokes across
the land for its high spending is
trying to show as it did last
weekend, that New York still
has much to offer.
"The hotels and the city are
concerned about getting people
here and having them like New
York and getting them to come
back," said Sheila McFarland,
a reservations manager for
three hotels here.
Blocks of tickets to Broadway
shows and other productions
have been set aside for :onven-
tion-goers. Each of the 6,000
delegates, alternates and their
families will receive kits con-
taining 60 brochures on dis-
counts, restaurants, stores, en-
tertainment maps.

BERLIN (A' - Four women
accused of terrorism - one of
whose freedom had been de-
manded by hijackers of an Air
France plane last week - broke
out of a West Berlin prison
early yesterday by overpowering
two guards.
The escapees made their way
through windows and over roof-
tops to the outer wall, officials
said.
POLICE mounted a search
throughout West Berlin and West
Germany. Officials said one of
the escapees had a gun and all
had gotten keys to their cells
before the escape.
Police identified the four as
Inge Viett, 32: Gabriele Rollnik,
25; Juliane Plambeck, 23, and
Monika Berberich, 33.
"Words fail me," City Justice
Minister Hermann Oxfort told
a news conference after the
escape became known. "All this
is a terrible fact."
VIETT, A former kindergarten
teacher, was on the list of 53
prisoners the Palestinian and
German hijackers in Uganda
wanted freed, until Israeli cor-
mandos swooped down on the
airport, rescued the hostages
and killed the hijackers.
Viett, Rollnik and Plambeck
were under investigation to de-
termine if they took part in the
kidnaping last year of Peter
Lorenz, who won a seat in West
Berlin's assembly in an election
held during the six days he was
held captive. He was freed
March 4, 1975, after five jailed
anarchists were released from
jails and flown to Yemen.
Viett was alleged to be a lead-
ing member of the Second of
June Movement, the gang that
said it kidnaped Lorenz.
BERBERICH, who police said
was a member of the Baader-
Meinhof anarchist gang, was
serving a 12-year sentence for
bank robbery.
A second warrant had been
issued Tuesday for Miss Plam-
beck, ordering her held on sus-
picion of taking part in the at-
