Armenina ndos
surrender consulate

Latest Reagan budget cuts
alienate fellow Republicans

PARIS (AP)-Three Armenian
terrorists who seized the Turkish
Consulate,,killed a guard, and held
25 hostages for 15 hours surrendered
late last night, freeing their captives
unharmed, police said.
A fourth terrorist, a Turkish vice
consul, and a 'third person were
wounded in the Thursday morning
takeover and had been taken from
the building earlier.
THE TERRORISTS, who had
threatened to blow up the building
and kill all the hostages, had
demanded freedom for Armenians
in Turkish jails. After they surren-
dered, they were driven off at high
speed in a police minibus to police
-headquarters.

Turkey, which denies it is holding
any Armenian political prisoners,
insisted throughout the seige it
would not negotiate with the
terrorists.
Just before the Armenians
surrendered to flak-jacketed mem-
bers of the city's anti-terrorist
squad, women hostages shouted
from a consulate window, "We will
come out in the street with the com-
mandos."
The surrender at 2:10 a.m.-8:10
p.m. EDT yesterday-followed ten-
se negotiations through a consulate
window between the terrorists'
short, bearded leader and the head
of the anti-terrorist squad, Robert
Broussard.

relatively small sacrifice he expects
from the Pentagon. He said the gover-
nment's first responsibility is national
security, "and we are determined to
meet that responsibility."
Reagan, appealing directly to the
people in the way that won him budget
and tax cut victories this summer, hin-
ted there is a little flexibility in his
-latest program-sure to draw criticism
for its impact on social programs.
CONGRESSIONAL reaction to
President. Reagan's call for more
budget cuts ranged yesterday from
criticism by his foes to pledges by his
supporters to workafor another victory.
But one of Reagan's most persistent
critics, House Speaker Thomas O'Neill
(D-Mass.) was silent. Aides said his
response would come today in a speech
on the House floor.
The Mona Lisa, completed by
Leonardo da-Vinci in 1503, is considered
the most valuable painting in the world.
Legend says its subject was Mona Lisa
Gheradini, whose husband disliked the
painting and refused to pay for it. But is
is more commonly believed that it por-
trays the Duchess of Milan. However, it
has never been definitely established
just exactly who the model w.as.

Other Democrats, though, didn't even
wait for the speech to be delivered
before they criticized Reagan's
policies.
"TONIGHT THE president will go on
television and he will ask for additional
budget cuts .. but I don't think that the
American people want to see this kind
of balancing of the budget on the backs
of school children, on the backs of the
veterans, on the backs of the old
people," said Senate Democratic
Leader Robert Byrd of West Virginia.
Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) also
attacked Reagan's new budget cuts
before the address, charging that the
president wants tq "afflict the afflicted
in order to comfort the comfortable."
The president's Republican allies ap-
plauded his efforts.
HOUSE Republican Leader Robert
Michel of Illinois pledged his support.
"We must now complete what we set
out to do by making further reductions
and enacting other revenue measures
that will insure a federal deficit next
year consistent with our overall
economic goals," Michel said.
Sen. Strom Thurmond (R-S.C.) also
praised Reagan. "The president again
emphasized in understandable terms
what big government and big spending
policies have done in recent years to
drain the strength of this nation and to
incease the burden on the average
tax payer."
Reagan also received support from
the U.S. Chamber of Commerce with
the group's president, Richard Lesher,
declaring "the business community
stands solidly behind the president."

IN BRIEF-
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press international reports
Increased inflation rate
caused by housing costs
WASHINGTON- Rising housing costs moderated in August but still
pushed inflation to a 10.6 percent annual rate, the government reported
yesterday.
It was the second straight month of double-digit inflation after four months
below the 10 percent level.
The new report shows that inflation for the past 12 months-from August to
August-was 10.9 percent. For the first eight months of this year, it ran at a
9.6 percent annual rate.
Although August's 1.0 percent increase in housing costs was the smallest
in four months, the Labor Department report said the housing component of
the Consumer Price Index still accounted for more than half of the overall
August increase.
Iranian pilgrims attacked-
by Saudis at holy shrine
BEIRUT, Lebanon- Iranian pilgrims in Saudi Arabia shouting "God is
Great!" at the Moslem faith's second holiest shrine yesterday were clubbed
by Saudi troops, Tehran radio reported. It said 20-Iranians were injured, 12
of them h'ospitalized but "in good shape."
The broadcast; monitored in Beirut, quoted Iranian Minister of Islamic
Guidance Abdolmajid Moadikhah as saying in a telegram to the Saudi
government that the attack at Medina, where the prophet Mohammad is
buried, "comes at a time when there are other pieces of news about
maltreatment of Iranian pilgrims, which is not what we expect at all.
Moslems should unite to free themselves from the control of the super-
powers."
The report could not be independently confirmed and there was no word on
the incident from the Saudis. But the Saudi monarchy has been worried
about the spread of the Iranian revolution to Saudi Arabia.
'Convict-turned-author'
being held without bond
NEW ORLEANS- A convict-turned-author, paroled and brought to
literary fame with the help of Norman Mailer, was ordered held without
bond yesterday for return to New York City for questioning in the stabbing
death of an aspiring young actor.
Jack Henry Abbott, 37, was arraigned before federal Magistrate Ingard
Johannesen, who handed him over to federal authorities for the transfer to
New York.
Abbott was arrested Wednesday by sheriff's deputies who surprised him
at his $4-an-hour job as an oilfield roustabout in Morgan City, La.
Pope's assailant
'not a lone fanatic
ROME- Mehmet Ali Agca, the Turkish gunman convicted of trying to kill
Pope John Paul II, was not a lone fanatic but was part of an international
terrorist conspiracy, the judges who tried him said yest day.
But the judges' full 51-page opinion, issued more thn two months after
they sentenced Agca to life in prison, said there was no solid evidence to
identify the other conspirators or determine why they wanted the Polish-
born John Paul dead.
White House redecorated
WASHINGTON- Nancy Reagan has finished redecorating the White
House, keeping to her donated budget of $822,641, and the result might in-
spire one of those color TV commercials-the living room is yellow, with
lemon yellow furnishings and a pale yellow rug.
The family bedroom is salmon with peach carpets. And the president's
study is red, with red and white drapes.
Press secretary Sheila Patton Tate refused to break down how the
$822,641-raised by private, tax-deductible donations-was spent.

rm gonna teach you a coupla
things that'll 1) impress your friends,
and 2) maybe lose some friends.
All you need is good eyesight, a
little dexterity, and three essentials:
a pool table, pool cue, and some
Lite Beer from Miller.
CHEAP SHOTS
Here's a goodie. I call it the
"Cheap Shot. Place a ball on the
edge of the corner pocket. Then,
take a half-dollar and lean it against
the side rail at the other end of the
table. (If you don't have a half-dollar,
you can always write home to your
parents: they'd love to hear from you.)
Tell your friends you're gonna
sink the ball in the corner; using the"
half-dollar as a cue ball. It's not hard.

supposed to lose money
doing trick shots-just win
Lite Beers.
TIE COIN TRICK
his one drives people nuts.
Place a ball on the head spot. With the
chalk, make a circle aroundit,-approx-
imately 8" in diameter. Then put a quar-
ter or half-dollar on top of the ball. (Yes,
you can use the same one from before,
or you can write home to your parents
again.) Place the cue ball behind the
foot line and have your friends

try to knock the coin out of the circle.
Chances are, they won't be able to
(this is a good time to work on your
Lite Beer and act smug).
When you shoot, do one of two
things: hit the object ball head-on
with follow-through so the cue ball
knocks the coin out, or hit the cue
ball very, very slowly so the coin rolls
off the object ball.
TABLE MANNERS
Now for simple table etiquette.
After you've "hustled" your friends,
you gotta keep 'em. So do what I call
"Clearing the Table' Simply offer to
buy the next round of Lite Beer.
They'll all clear the table fast and
head for the bar (or to your room or
apartment).Then, once they all have
