India recognizes PLO
NEW DELHI, India - India granted full diplomatic recognition to the
Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) yesterday, another success in the
PLO effort to gain recognition from oil-thirsty nations.
India buys about 2.9 billion gallons of oil a year from various Arab
countries, and has sought close ties with them to insure stable supplies.
At the invitation of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, PLO Leader Yassar
Arafat will arrive tomorrow for a two-day visit. External Affairs Minister
P.V.N. Rao explained to members of the Indian parliament, "Over the
years, not only by words, but also by deeds, the people of India have
demonstrated their sympathy, affection, and brotherly' feelings for the
Palestinian people."
Rao said the PLO office in New Delhi will be accorded full diplomatic
status, and would not be considered an embassy.
The Indian- government recognizes Israel, but does not have full
diplomatic relations with Tel Aviv. It has, however, permitted Israel to
maintain a consulate in Bombay. There is no official Indian representative
in Israel.
DeBakey flies to Egypt to
treat cancer-stricken shah
American surgeon Dr. Michael DeBakey flew to Cairo yesterday to
"fulfill his commitment" to the deposed Shah of Iran who reportedly
requires surgery to remove a cancerous spleen.
DeBakey had intended to perform the operation in Panama where the
shah was living in exile, but a dispute arose over whether Panamanian or
American doctors should have the responsibility for the operation.
Although the removal of the spleen is not a life-threatening operation,
medical suorces in Cairo were pessimistic about the over-all outlook for the
cancer-stricken shah.
"All his doctors can do is put up a fight. But it is inevitable. There is no
hope for recovery," one source said who is not involved in the shah's
Pope to visit Africa
VATICAN CITY - Pope John Paul II announced yesterday he will visit
the "dear continent," Africa, in May to help spread Christianity in those
regions "already ripe for the harvest." The Pope said he- will visit six
countries in 11 days.
It is only the second visit of a Roman Catholic pontiff to Africa, where
the Vatican counts 53 million Roman Catholics. The trip will be the Pope's
fifth visit outside of Italy since his election to the papacy in October 1978.
The Pope will visit Zaire, the Congo, Kenya, Ghana, Upper Volta, and
the Ivory Coast.

WASHINGTON - President Carter's chief economic advisor said
yesterday that soaring inflation, once limited to energy and mortgage
interest costs, is now spreading to the rest of the U.S. economy.
"For the first time, inflation began to spill out into the economy more
broadly" in January and February of this year, said Charles Schultze,
chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors.
The inflation rate last year was 13.3 per cent, but Schultze acknowledged
that the rate so far this year has accelerated to between 18 and 20 per cent on
an annual basis.
In 1979, most of the high inflation rate was the result of large price
increases for gasoline and other energy products and surging interest rates,
according to government economists. Inflation for other items was well
under one per cent last year, they asserted.
Schultze said the aim of government economic policy had been to keep
double-digit inflation from spilling over to other areas besides energy or
housing, but the new government figures indicate the policy has failed.
Guard charged with aiding
N.J. prison takeover
NEWARK, N.J. - A guard was arraigned yesterday on charges he
smuggled in the gun prisoners used to seize control of the Essex County jail
in an attempted jailbreak that a prosecutorcalled "an act of desperation."
Two other guards were injured in the 13-hour takeover which ended
yesterday morning after the six inmates released their five hostages and
correction officials agreed to some of their demands.
John "Buddy" Belcher, 29, of East Orange was charged with providing
the gun as well as conspiring to violate narcotics laws.
Belcher, who has been a corrections officer since August 1978, had a
good record in the jail, officials said.
Also arraigned were two women charged with aiding in smuggling in the
revolver. Prosecutors said they had been at the jail Tuesday, but declined to
comment on their connection with the case.
