Soviets may pull troops
out of Afghanistan soon

(Continued from Page1)
Arabia by Deputy Secretary of State
Warren Christopher and President Car-
ter's national security adviser,
Zbigniew Brzezinski, and surveyed
general developments in Afghanistan,
Iran, Pakistan, and the Middle East.
They spoke to a group of reporters
Friday evening under ground rules that
they not be identified by name, that no
direct quotations be used, and that their
comments not be made public until
THE TRIP was the first to the region
by a top-level delegation since the start
of the Russian occupation of
Afghanistan. The mission was designed
2o show support for Pakistan, now a key
element in countering any Soviet ad-
vance toward the Persian Gulf, a region
where President Carter has said the
United States hag "vital interests."
Karmal told the newspaper Indian

Express Daily that the Soviet troops
keeping him in power and fighting a
Moslem rebellion "are here to con-
solidate the gains of our revolution,
protect our land and secure the peace in
the region."
He accused the United States, China
and Pakistan of supplying Moslem
rebels with arms and asserted that the
Soviet invasion "foiled the plot" of the
three nations to attack Afghanistan on
Jan. 6.
"THE DAY the' reactionary
Pakistan, chauvinist China, imperialist
America and Britain and Zionist Egypt
are defeated in their ugly plan to
dismember Afghanistan, the Russians
will go back... But as long as there
are dangers from outside, the Russians
will stay," he said.
Guerrilla resistance reportedly has

shriveled to sporadic sniper fire and
small-scale attacks, primarily in the
rugged mountains of the northeast, sin-
ce the Soviets began pouring troops into
its southern neighbor last Christmans.
U.S. analysts then estimated it would
take the Soviets three to four months to
put end to the rebel resistance.
In a related development, Radio
.Kabul said Afghanistan's No. 2 man,
Deputy Prime Minister Sultan Ali
Kishtmand, had left for Moscow for a
"health checkup."
But diplomatic sources in New Delhi
said the official's departure for Moscow
might reflect the Kremlin's displeasure
over Karmal's failure to pacify the
Moslem guerrillas fighting to install an
Islamic government in Afghanistan and
could "signal that a shift is contem-

Vance urges IOC
to move games
LAKE PLACID-Secretary of State Cyrus Vance was at the Olympic
Village yesterday, appealing to the International Olympic Committee
(IOC) to cancel, postpone or move the summer games in Moscow in
protest of Russia's intervention in Afghanistan.
"To hold the Olympics in any nation that is warring on another is to
lend the Olympic mantle to that nation's actions," Vance told the IOC. He
asked them to consider whether the summer games "should be held in a
country which is itself committing a serious breach of international
"It is our conviction," Vance said, "that to do so would be wholly
inconsistent with the meaning of the Olympics." He then called for the
creation of permanent homes for the summer and winter Olympics "to
avoid such problems in the future."~
Nixon moves to New York
LOS ANGELES-Former President Richard Nixon and his wife
Pat left California yesterday to take up residence in New York City.
The Nixons' first stop was Miami, Fla., for a visit to the Key Biscayne
home of Nixon's longtime friend, Bebe Rebozo. They are expected to fly
on to New York Thursday to move into their new townhouse on
Manhattan's upper east side.
Gacy witness questioned
CHICAGO-Prosecutors in the John Wayne G.cy trial sought
yesterday to pinpoint the final moments in the life of Robert Piest, 15,
said to be the last of Gacy's 33 alleged sex-murder victims. Hoping to
convict Gacy, 37, on more murder charges than any individual in U.S.
history, the prosecutors questioned Kimberly Byers, 19, Piest's co-
worker at Nisson's Drug Store in suburban Chicago, where Piest was
working just before he disappeared.-
IN opening arguments, Assistant State's Attorney Robes t Egan
charged that Gacy sexually abused and killed the Piest boy in the
bedroom of his home; then, with Piest's body still on the floor, went to
Piest's body, unlike the majority of those linked to Gacy, was later
dumped in a river. Twenty-nine of Gacy's alleged victims were buried on\
his home site-27 in the crawl space under his house.
Police tear gas mourners
JOHANNESBURG-Police threw tear gas into buses carrying
mourners to the funeral of a black nationalist guerrilla who was kil d
last month in a bank raid, the South African Press said yesterday.
Several persons were injured and had to be hospitalized after police
hit them with*atons, the agency said, quoting witnesses to the melee in
the black township of Soweto.
The guerrillas, members of the outlawed African National Congress,
were killed in a shootout with police after holding hostages in the bank
and making political demands, including the relese of a black political
prisoner. Two hostages also died in the shootout.
Soweto, about 10 miles southwest of Johannesburg and home to some
1.5 million blacks, was the scene of student uprisings in 1976 that
eventually left 700 people dead, most of them black.
Court halts secession plan
CASSOPOLIS-A citizens group hoping to see Cass County break
away from Michigan and become pasrt of Indiana has been dealt a
setback in its secession campaign.
Cass County Circuit Judge James Hoff says the group cannot
circulate petitions to have the secession issue placed before county voters
this November because there is no such "initiative power" at the local
level. As a "non-charter county"-lacking a specific charter to govern its
operations-Hoff said the voters there cannot initiate laws through
William LeBre, attorney for the secessionists, said the group had not
yet determined what course of action to take next.
"I can guarantee you this much," he said, "we're not dead. By no
means are we dead."
LeBre said his group, which began its secession drive last fall, is
confident of local support. "Residents are fed up with Michigan's high
taxes and believe their needs are being ignored," he said. "I think it's
more of a question of saying Indiana offers much lower taxes and much
greater freedom."
Energy policy stifled
WASHINGTON-In a winter of soaring gasoline and heating oil.
prices, Congress is deadlocked over proposals designed to solve the
nation's energy problems.
While the nation's energy policy grows more worrisome, President
Carter's plan is caught in a congressional tug of war that could eventually
kill or seriously weaken the three major pieces of legislation he proposed.
At issue are proposals for a "windfall" tax on oil revenues, a massive
injection of public f funds to develop synthetic fuels and an Energy
Mobilization Board designed to speed up the approval process for a wide
variety of non-nuclear energy projects.
