what I think. We're not going to be
intimidated." Bush said he might fly to
New York Sunday to visit the people
taken hostage.
Both of the groups identified
themselves as members of the Puerto
ican national group FALN.
HE FALN, WELL known to the FBI
and police agencies across the country,
has for years been waging a campaign
for Puerto Rican independence,
marked by bombings in New York,'
Chicago and elsewhere.
Although the FALN is not active in
Puerto Rico, other terrorist
independence groups have opposed the
primary elections of both mainland
parties which are being held in Puerto
Rico for the first time this year.
heir reasoning is that by voting in
h primaries Puerto Ricans will
become more involved in mainland
politics and thus more willing to vote
for eventual statehood status for Puerto
Rico.

THE THREE terrorists ordered
campaign workers to lie on the floor.
The two men-one with a rifle and the
other with a shotgun-kept watch while
the woman, brandishing a .38 caliber
pistol, bound them and taped their
mouths.
The three then ransacked the office,
ripped out the telephones, spray-
painted slogans on the walls and lelft,
annoucning they intended to take aover
the entire building-which also houses
the campaign offices of- Republican
presidential contender John Anderson.
The terrorists then fled and the
workers freed themselves.
In New York, Bush's campaign .
coordinator John Steele said the four
men who burst into the office were
apparently angered by Bush's stand in
favor of statehood for Puerto Rico.
The men bound workers' hands with
masking tape and spray painted
"Statehood Means Death" and "Free
Puerto Rico" on the walls.

By KEITH RICHBURG
Special to the Daily
CHICAGO-When Vice-President
Walter Mondale visited the Lincoln
Memorial Church of Christ on
Chicago's south side, the
congregationalists nodded in a
collective "Amen" as the reacher,
Illinois State Senator Charles Chew,
delivered unto them the gospel of
Chicago politics.
"Some people in this city have gotten
power drunk," Chew told the
Saturday morning gathering. "There
was an article in the paper with the
mayor of this city saying 'Maybe I'll let
Jimmy Carter march in the (St.
Patrick's Day) parade 'Nobody 'lets'
the President do anything,
"The idea of a power drunk woman
who got into office through false
promises who would make a statement
that we would 'let' the president march
in the St-Patrick's Day Parade!"
THE "POWER DRUNK woman" to
whom Chew referred is Chicago's
combative and controversial mayor,
Jane Byrne. Byrne, who is supporting
Democratic Sen. Edwvard Kennedy in
his challenge to unseat President
Carter, has thrown the weight of the
Cook County organization behind
Kennedy's lagging campaign.
But in the black communities on
Chicago's south side, if the message is
anti-Jane Byrne and anti-machine, they
love it. It was state controller Roland
Burris, during his term at the pulpit,
who put the message in its simplest
terms :
"The Carter-Mondale ticket is doing
well downstate. What we have to do is
deliver the votes here in Chicago."
UNDER THE LATE Mayor Richard
Daley, only the machine could deliver
the votes. But the Carter campaign,
headed here by Mondale ampaigning
in Jimmy Carter's absence, has made
Jane Byrne and the Chicago machine
the principal opponent in the March 18
primary.
Since her much-publicized defection
to the Kennedy campaign last
November, Byrne has worked tirelessly
for Kennedy and for her hand-picked
candidate for the state's attorney's
office. Byrne has told Kennedy she will
deliver the delegates on election day,
though most polls here show the
Senator trailing by as much as three to
one.
IN ILLINOIS' Democratic primary
there are actually two
elections-"beauty contest" to
measure popular vote, and the selection
of delegates committed to the
candidate for the New York nominating
convention this summer.
THREE WARD leaders have
announced their support of-President
Carter, and in many ways, Byrne's
support of Kennedy has helped drive
more supporters into the Cartercamp.
The mayor's threatened reprisals
against city workers not supporting
Kennedy have come across as heavy-
handed.
But while Mondale took his anti-Jane
Byrne road show to Chicago's black
communites, Kennedy has been doing
well among Jewish organizations. In
fact, Kennedy has been making as
many inroads in the Jewish community
as Mondale has been making with
blacks.
Of the botched U.N. vote, Kennedy
asked, "Was it a communictions gap or

Of the botched U.N. vote, Kennedy
asked, "Was it a communications gap
or a credibility gap?" His speech,
which was interrupted a dozen times
with applause at references to Israel's
security, went over well with the
Jewish leaders present. That same
group practically booed and hooted
Carter campaign manager Robert
Strauss and Commerce Secretary
Philip Klutznick right off the stage
when they came the day before to
explain the U.N. "mistake."
Kennedy has far from conceded the
black vote to Carter. Campaigning at
Reverend Jesse Jackson's Operation
PUSH headquarters in Chicago,
Kennedy told the predominantly black
audience that under the Carter
administration, "You are nobody.".
