Soviet di o mats
expelled from
Egypt embassy.

CAIRO, Egypt'(AP)- President Anwar Sadat's
government expelled the Soviet ambassador to Cairo
and six Soviet Embassy employees yesterday, ac-
cusing them of plotting against Egypt by inciting
Moslem-Christian strife. A Hungarian diplomat also
was ordered out.
The move, taken by the Egyptian Cabinet and an-
nounced by the government news agency, appeared
to be the most serious breach of Egyptian-Soviet
relations since 1972 when Sadat expelled 17,000 Soviet
IT FOLLOWED Sadat's speech Monday night ac-
cusing the Soviet Union of being involved "head-on"
in the strife between Moslem fundamentalists and the
Coptic Christian minority in Egypt and declaring that
12 of the 1,536 Egyptians arrested in connection with
that strife had been Soviet-inspired.
Many of those arrested are Sadat's political foes.
A Cabinet statement carried by the official news
agency said Ambassador Vladimir Polyakov and the
others had 48 hours to leave Egypt. It also said a
Hungarian diplomat had been ejected on charges of
being "involved" in the religious conflict in Egypt.
THE CABINET also ordered the closing of the

Soviet military liaison bureau in Cairo and its Egyp-
tian counterpart in Moscow, expelled two Soviet
journalists, terminated contracts of Soviet advisers
in Egypt and reduced the overall Soviet diplomatic
presence here to match Egypt's in Moscow.
The two Soviet reporters were identified as an em-
ployee of the official Soviet news agency Tass and a
reporter for the Soviet newspaper Trud. Both were
ordered to leave within 48 hours.
A Soviet Embassy employee, reached by
telephone, said, "We have no comment," and said
senior officials were not available.
EGYPTIAN FOREIGN Ministry sources said
Egypt had about 10 diplomats in the Soviet capital.
The Egyptian ambassador to Moscow, Samih Anwar,
was appointed in late 1978, but he has never taken up
his post in Moscow.
The expulsion was the fourth reduction of the Soviet
presence in Egypt in the past five years and came
short of a total break in relations with the Kremlin,
Egypt's leading protector during the rule of the late
President Gamal Abdel Nasser.
The Cabinet, after studying relevant files on Soviet

"movements" in Egypt, noted that the Soviets were
"engaged in recruiting agents in Egypt ... exploiting
religious strife, and influencing the spread and
escalation of the sectarian conflict," which has left 70
dead in the past year.
IT ALSO SAID they "coordinated with local leftist
elements in Egypt, and with Arab countries opposed
to Egypt's peace moves with Israel, to mount
publicity campaigns defaming the regime
According to the news agency, the Cabinet found
the Soviets "coordinated their moves totally with in-
telligence services of a number of East bloc em-
bassies . . . and elements of local Communist'
movements" in plots against Egypt.
The Cabinet announcement said the Egyptian
Foreign Ministry had "often" warned Soviet
diplomats to adhere to the rules of diplomatic con-
duct in Egypt, and despite the advice and the &-
pulsion of other diplomats previously, members 6fP
the mission in Cairo continued "their plot against tfrt
regime and the aspirations of Egypt."

attacked in

W. Germany

From AP and UPI
HEIDELBERG, West Germany-
Terrorists firing guns and anti-tank
grenades yesterday 'ambushed and
slightly wounded the commander in
chief of the U.S. Army in Europe as he
drove to work in an armor-plated car.
The attack against Gen. Frederick
Kroesen Jr., 58, was the fourth on U.S.
personnel in West Germany since the
end of August, when the ultra-leftist
Red Army Faction proclaimed "war
ag inst imperialist war."
WEST GERMAN police said the at-
tack took place at 7:18 a.m. as the
general was riding to work in a green,
armored Mercedes along a suburban
street near the Neckar River in the nor-
theastern- part of the city. The
terrorists, firing from about 200,yards,
hit the general's car as it was stopped
for a traffic signal.
The grenades hit the trunk of the car

and exploded, causing heavy damage
and peppering Kroesen and his wife,
Rowene, with flying glass.
Police said the rear of the general's
Mercedes limousine was struck with at
least one grenade believed to be "of
Russian origin." They said the car's
armor plating probably saved its four
occupants from serious injury or death.
spokesman Henry Catto deplored the
attack but said he had no information
suggesting the Russians were behind it.
The terrorists, lying in ambush in a
wooded slope near a traffic intersection
on the outskirts of Heidelberg, escaped.
No group immediately claimed-respon-
sibility but speculation focused on the
Red Army Faction.
In Bonn, the West German gover-
nment condemned the attack and
pledged to "do everything for the
security of U.S. troops who are
stationed for the defense of Western

Chancellor Helmut Schmidt told
Kroesen in a message that "all upstan-
ding Germans condemn most sharply
this terrorist attack."
Karsten Voight, a Social Democratic
member of 'parliament and frequent
critic of U.S. defense policies, said the
attack was "apparently aimed at upset-
ting the German-American relation-
In Brussels, NATO Secretary
General Joseph Luns said he was
shocked at the attack "but much
relieved to learn that there were no
serious injuries."~
The attack came one day ,,after the
visit to West Germany of Secretary of
State Alexander Haig, himself the
target of an assassination attempt in
Belgium two years ago.
Haig, at the time NATO's supreme
commander, escaped injury when a
bomb exploded beneath his car near
Casteau, Belgium.

bill passed
debate in either House or Senate, and
unnoticed by most of Congress and the
public, the so-called teenage chastity
bill has quietly become the law of the
The bill, officially titled "Public
Health Service Act amendments
relating to adolescent pregnancy and
parenthood," was enacted in July as a
part of the massive 1982 budget
reconciliation bill.
THE NEW LAW is intended to meet
charges that present legislation ac-
tually may encourage teenage abor-
tions and parental deception. It seeks to
deal with both the pregnant girl and her
male partner, and to involve the paren-
ts of both.
The bill requires involving the parents
in cases where a teenager is receiving
help, and encourages involvement of
the family and the community to help
adolescents understan the im-
plications of premarital sex, pregnancy
and parenthood.
THE BILL authorizes $30 million an-
nually for three years, starting in fiscal
1982. One-third of the funds will be used
for "scientific research on causes and
consequences of premarital adolescent
sexual relations."
The remaining two-thirds of the
money is earmarked for "necessary
services"-as determined by the
Department of Health and Human Ser-
vices-for pregnant teenagers and
teenage parents, of for prevention
"CRITICS OF the existing program
charge that these two aspects may have
the unintended effect of encouraging
teenage abortion and deceiving of
parents, and this could be seen as un-
dermining family life," said a report
accompanying the new law.
In the popular comic strip
"Doonesbury," Zonker's companion
said he assumed the bill would
discourage promiscuity by providing
for identification checks outside Brooke
Shields' movies and hiring sound trucks
to cruise neighborhoods on Saturday
nights, blaring "Cut that out!"

DETROIT (UPI) - Mayor Coleman
Young, the street-wise politician who
became the first black mayor in the
nation's sixth largest city, claimed a
landside victory yesterday over 10
oponents in a primary election.
The victory, which came as no sur-
prise, almost certainly assures the
flamboyant 63-year-old Democrat a win
in the Nov. 3 general election and a
third-term in office.
YOUNG, BOOSTED by a familiar
name, a $932,000 campaign fund and
opposition from unknowns, claimed his
easiest victory ever despite his support
for an income tax increase earlier in
they year.
;:t; ,: r"':" :isy: :":yi {: iiil:";:i' t : }"::::

In fact, the mayor was so certain of a
victory at the polls that he spent most of
the campaign stumping for his favorite
candidates. in more closely contested
municipal races.
RETURNS IN the city came slowly
with key indicator precincts not
showing until 2 hours after the polls
closed. Young's overwhelming vic-
tories in those precincts ranged from 98
percent to 35 percent in one heavily
white area.
The indicator precincts also showed
City Clerk James Bradley holding
a lead over Shirley Robinson Hall, who
was backed by Young, and Joseph
Madison, director of the NAACP's voter
education project.
