S. African court frees
.39 after coup attempt

PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) - A
Preetoria court freed "Mad Mike"
Hoare and 43 other mercenaries in-
cluding an American yesterday, and
the Marxist president of the Seychelles
said the action proved South Africa's
involvement in the botched coup again-
st his regime.
Hoare and four other mercenary
leaders appeared in magistrate's court,
0 were "provisionally" charged with
kidnapping, then immediately freed on
bail: The 39 others, ordered released
without charge after the government
Cabinet discussed the case Tuesday,
were not brought to court.

SEYCH9LLES President France
Albert Rene told a news conference in
Victoria, the Seychelles capital, the
decision clearly showed the South
African white minority government's
involvement in the abortive coup.
Seychelles Police Commissioner James
Pillary called the release a "major
Brian Bamford, a spokesman for
South Africa's opposition Progressive
Federal Party, said the release "will
add fuel to the suspicions that people
have voiced overseas about South
Africa's alleged involvement." The
mercenaries took a bus from Johan-

nesburg to Swaziland Nov. 26, then flew
to the Seychelles.
The coup' misfired when Seychelles
airport officials discovered the mer-
cenaries'weapons aboard an airport
bus. Heavy fighting broke, the mer-
cenaries commandeered an Air-India
passenger jet, flew to Durban, South
Africa, released their captives and
missioner Louis le Grange refused to
idetify the 39 alleged hijackers who
were released. He said the men may be
required to testify later in the trial of
their leaders.
But the U.S. Embassy confirmed that
one of those released was an American -
Barry Francis Gribbon of Miami.

Aging con
WASHINGTON (AP) - Pressured by
hundreds of chanting dissidents outside,
a key committee at the White House
Conference on Aging approved a
resolution yesterday opposing any
current or future cuts in Social
The compromise position came after
nearly three hours of closed door
negotiations among 81-year-old Rep.
Claude Pepper (D-Fla. ), the dissident's
fiery spokesman, and conference
PEPPER, striding through the crowd
of demonstrators, had demanded to ad-
dress the committee drafting the con-
ference position on Social Security. Af-
ter a brief standoff, he was ushered into
a back room, where the compromise

ference: No more cuts

resolutin was worked out.
The Committee on Economic Well-
Being, which the dissidents charged
was stacked with Reagan supporters,
voted nearly unanimously to oppose
cuts in current Social Security benefits
and agreed to "strongly recommend
that Congress make every possible and
fiscally responsible effort ... to main-
tain no less than the real protection that
is currently provided to all participan-
The committee had ignited the
dispute Tuesday when it voted to keep
all benefits for those now getting Social
Security, but refused to oppose future
cuts in the program.
TH E COMPROMISE, however, was
not enough to remove the possibility

that a rules fight or walkout might
disrupt the finale of the $6 million con-
ference today, when the nearly 2,300
will be asked to approve as a package
all recommendations made by 14
separate committees.
The committee rekindled controver-
sy later yesterday when it voted 60-55 to
support President Reagan for his effor-
ts "to commend Congress and the ad-
ministration for its support of Social
Security and its efforts to control in-
flation, which is the heaviest tax on
senior citizens."

Moonshining increase not
expected by government

From The Associated Press
The break-up of the federal depar-
tment that apprehends moonshiners
shouldn't create an upsurge in the
illegal liquor business, say officials of
the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and
But state enforcers from Sout ern
mountain areas where moonshinin is a
tradition say that if times get hard and
revenuers get scarce, folks are likely to
build up their old stills.
YEARS OF enforcement and stiff
sentencing, increases in the cost of
moonshining supplies and availability
of legal liquor in formerly dry areas
have hurt the black market booze
business, according to the ATF, which
is undergoing study on how it should be
disbanded as part of a budget-cutting
"We don't do much moonshine work
anymore," said ATF spokesman James
Lynch. The agency's priorities have
shifted more toward firearm and ex-
plosives control from the 1960s crack-
down on moonshining, he said.
ATF spokeswoman Patricia Murphy
said moonshining is a diminishing
problem and a change in the agency
should not cause production of illegal
liquor to increase.
THEODORE "DOC" King, a 63-year-
old retired moonshiner in Mars Hills,
N.C., agrees, saying, "There'll not be
no more moonshining." That's not
because of ATF, he adds, but because
