MEXICO CITY (AP) - About 60
unarmed students from a private high
school seized the Lebanese Embassy
yesterday, but left peacefully about five
hours later when told the secretary of
education would hear their grievances.
One of the student leaders, sipping
coffee on the embassy's patio before the
occupation ended, said they were
demanding the federal government
turn Miguel Serrano school into a public
school and also investigate the alleged
slayings of two students active in a five-
mwonth strike at Miguel Serrano. He did
not say why the Lebanese Embassy
was chosen for the action.
THE YOUTHS charged into the em-
bassy in the exclusive Polanco district
at 1:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m. EST, demanding
that Ambassador Hani El-Amine
arrange an interview with Education
Secretary Fernando Solana. They com-
plained that Education Department of-
ficials had refused several requests for
-At 5:10 p.m., a city school bus arrived
and the student trooped out, saying a
meeting had been promised with Solana
when he returns later this week from a
Cabinet meeting in the northern city of
Police surrounded the embassy,
across from Chapultepec Park, and a
police helicopter circled overhead
during the occupation.
THE INVADERS hung a banner with
the portrait of Ernesto "Che" Guevara
on the embassy gate, but it was not
known if they had any affiliation with
leftist organizations that still revere the
revolutionary leader slain in Bolivia
about 14 years ago.
Ambassador El-Amine refrained
from any direct intervention, but in-
vited a senior government official, who
was not identified, to talk with the in-
The student leader, who declined to
give his name, said the demonstrators
were from the Miguel Serrano school
where the students have been on strike
since the tuition was raised in Septem-
ber from $35 to $65 a month.
He claimed that after the strike star-
ted, two members of a student com-
mission appointed to negotiate with
school authorities were shot and killed
and four others were wounded. He said
all six were shot in separate attacks but
gave no further details. Government of-
ficials made no immediate comment on
the alleged shootings.
The Argentine-born Guevara was
Fidel Castro's chief lieutenant in the
Cuban revolution in the 1950s. He left
Cuba in 1965 to lead revolutionary ac-
tivities in other countries and was cap-
tured and slain in 1967 while leading a
guerrilla movement in Bolivia.

Another prisoner, who asked not to be
identified, said the residents at a
smaller halfway house at 245 Sunset
were "just like a family." He said it
was run by a husband and wife who
resided on the premises. "The lady
prepared the meals and she was like a

"It's the Correction Department's fault
that crimes are committed," he added,
suggesting that the screening system
should be more thorough.

halfway house program, said there has
been a surge in the state prison
population. He said the prison
population has nearly doubled in six
years, from 8,000 in 1973 to 15,000 in
According to Gellick, prison over-
crowding has placed a greater burden

he said. "In some cases, overcrowding

Israeli Minister Abu-Hatzeira
pleads innocent to bribery
JERUSALEM-Religious Affairs Minister Aharon Abu-Hatzeira pleaded
innocent to bribery charges yesterday at the opening of a trial that could
become a political campaign issue in Israel's June election.
It was the first time in Israel's 32-year history that a Cabinet minister had
gone on trial. Coming at the outset of what promises to be a bitterly fought
election campaign, the trial could further damage Prime Minister
Menachem Begin's coalition government.
Abu-Hatzeira belongs to the National Religious Party, a small but power-
ful party that has been the key partner in almost every coalition government
to rule Israel. It is likely to continue to play that role after the election but
there is no telling how seriously the Abu-Hatzeira trial may weaken the par-
ty's electoral appeal.
The government has been eager to get Abu-Hatzeira's trial finished as fast
as possible, partly to spare him a lengthy ordeal and partly to prevent the
scandal from turning into a major campaign issue.
Fla. riot trial goes to jury
MIAMI-The murder trial of four black men accused of beating to death
three white motorists during the bloody 1980 Liberty City riots in Miami went
to a jury of three blacks and nine whites yesterday.
The jury got the case after 30 minutes of instructions from Circuit Judge
Mario Goderich. He warned jurors to disregard anything they might have
heard during the trial about "acts not covered in the indictment."
Lawrence ICapers, 24, his brother, Leonard, 20, and Patrick Moore and
Samuel Lightsey, who both turned 17 last month, were charged with first
degree murder in the May 17, 1980, slayings of Benny Higdon, 21, Robert
Owens and Charles Barreca, both 15.
The victims were dragged from their car in a supermarket parking lot and
Senators ask emergency ceiling
on Japanese auto imports
WASHINGTON-Sens. Jack Danforth (R-Mo.) and Lloyd Bentsen (D-
Texas) called yesterday for a ceiling on Japanese automobile imports as an
emergency measure to save American automakers from collapse. U.S.
Trade Representative Bill Brock said quotas were not the only answer and
called for "urgent attention" to other problems, including tax and
Danforth and Bentsen said at a news conference they would "reluctantly"
introduce a bill to limit Japanese imports to 1.6 million cars annually for the
next three years. In 1980, Japanese car exports to the United States totaled
1.9 million and represented 22 percent of the total U.S. market.
The proposed 1.6 million quota, the senators said, represents the average
number of Japanese cars imported in years 1978 and 1979. Both senators said
they support free trade, but insisted the quota was needed "to buy time" for
the American auto industry to tool up for more efficient production.
South Korean government
pleased by Pres. Chun's visit
SEOUL, South Korea-South Korea appeared to get what it wanted from
the White House visit of President Chun Doo-hwan-a formal end to frictions
over human rights and the U.S. troop presence and support for a new era of
bilateral good will.
Following Chun's summit session with President Reagan on Monday, the
government received a pledge that Washington would maintain the strong
troop presence in South Korea since the Korean War ended in 1953, burying
former President Carter's long-stalled efforts to withdraw some of the 39,000
American forces stationed there.
The pledge was contained in a communique, issued following the session,
in which Reagan also reaffirmed a U.S. commitment to defend South Korea
"against aggression and pledged to sell South Korea "appropriate weapons
systems and defense industry technology."
Clark nomination approved
WASHINGTON-William Clark's nomination as deputy secretary of state
cleared a Senate committee yesterday despite Democratic assertions that
he is "embarrassing" and unqualified for the job.
Republicans defended Clark and voted unanimously for him in the 1-4 vote
by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to recommend his confirmation
by the full Senate.
Senate Republican Leader Howard Baker said he hopes to schedule a full
Senate vote on Clark's confirmation tomorrow.
Three Democrats abstained from voting and answered "present" citing
Clark's inability at his confirmation hearing Monday to answer a barrage of
questions on current foreign affairs.
Party Chief slams unions
WARSAW, Poland-Communist Party chief Stanislaw Kania yesterday
launched his strongest attack yet against Poland's independent Solidarity
labor union, accusing it of becoming an opposition political party.
His scathing criticism coincided with a blast from the Soviet government
newspaper Izvestia, which accused Western radio stations beamed at
Poland of broadcasting coded instructions to workers to undermine the
Communist Party through labor unrest.

HOW TO FOIL A CAR THIEF
A FEW SIMPLE PRECAUTIONS CAN REDUCE THE RISK OF THEFT
The numbers are stag-
gering, Every 37 seconds
or so a car is stolen some-
where in the U.S. That
adds up to almost 800,000
cars a year. But you can do
something to keep your car
from becoming a statistic.
Start by avoiding these four
common parking mistakes.
The "Just for a Min-
ute" Syndrome. When you
leave your car, even if it's
"just for a minute' lock all
of the doors and take your
keys. In fact, about one of
every five cars stolen was
left unattended with keys
in the ignition. Keep driver's
license and vehicle registra-
tion cards in your wallet or
purse. If a car thief finds
these documents in the ve-
hicle's glove box, he can
impersonate you if stopped
by the police.
The Isolated Loca-
tion. It's safest to park in
a locked garage, but if you
can't, don't leave your car
in a dark, out-of-the-way
spot. Instead, try to park
on a busy, well-lighted
street. Thieves shy away
from tampering with a car
if there's a high risk of be-
The Display Case.
There's nothing more invit-
ing to a thief than expensive
items lying in your car, in
plain sight. If you lock these
items in the trunk or glove
box, there's less incentive
for a thief to break in. Also,
when you park in a com-
mercial lot or garage, be
cautious. Lock your valu-
ables in the trunk, and, if
you must leave a key with
the attendant, leave only
the ignition key.
The Space at the End
of the Block. In recent
years, professional car-theft
operations have become an
increasing problem. Unlike
amateurs, the professionals
are not easily deterred. Cars

fessional thief with a tow
truck. So, it's best to park
in the middle of the block.
Be sure to turn your steer-
ing wheel sharply to one
side or the other. That will
lock the steering column
and prevent the car from
being towed from the rear.
no such thing as a "theft-
proof" car. But at General
Motors, we're equipping
every car we build with anti-
theft features. We want to
help you make it as difficult
as possible for any thief-
amateur or professional-
to steal your car.
