Detective
suspended
in parade
shooting
NEW ORLEANS (UPI) - A veteran
police detective was suspended yester-
day for firing into a Mardi Gras prarde
honoring nine Marines held hostage in
Iran and wounding a high school drum
major and two spectators.
The shooting Sunday night during the
Bacchus parade, one of the most spec-
tacular events leading up to today's
Mardi Gras, sent thousands of
screaming spectators running for cover
on the edge of the French Quarter.
Floats carrying the Marines were
well ahead of the spot where the
shooting occurred and were not en-
dangered.
THE OFFICER WHO did the
shooting was identified as Detective
John Walters of the Family Services
Division, a 10-year police veteran. He
was in plainclothes working on a "lost
child" detail at the time.
"The officer discharged his weapon
in an unauthorized manner and was
suspended this morning," said police
spokesman Don Joly.
Drum major Ray Johnson, 17, was
shot in the neck and spectator John
Barker, 20, of Plaquemine, La., was hit
in the groin. Both were in stable con-
dition at Charity Hospital.

Flocks follow farmers APrht
Seagulls take advantage of one farmer's work in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, as they feast on worms uncovered by
Amish plows. The farmers dislike the huge flocks, which appear every plowing season, because the worms help to
aerate the soil.

U.N.

General Assembly votes

to expel South Africa again

-U-

UNITED NATIONS (AP) - South
Africa, twice before expelled from the
U.N. General Assembly, was kicked out
again yesterday.
The world body voted 112-22 with six
abstentions to accept a credentials
committee's recommendation that
South Africa not be seated because its
white-minority government does not
represent the majority of South African
people.
THE UNITED STATES voted in the
credentials committee to accept the
South African delegation, and voted
against the committee recommen-
dation on the floor. Costa Rica and
Spain abstained in the committee and
the other committee members - the

Soviet Union, China, Angola, Kenya,
Haiti and Singapore - voted not to seat.
the delegation.
The United States argued that U.N.
rules say credentials must be propoerly
signed by an official of the government
sending the delegation, and South
Africa had met that requirement.
South African Ambassador Jacobus
Adriaan Eksteen and his counsellor,
David Steward, left the hall im-
mediately after the assembly vote was
announced.
AFTER THE COMMITTEE action,
South African Foreign Minister R.F.
Botha said in Johannesburg the
decision was "scandalous and
revengeful."

Esksteen and four colleagues entereco
the assembly hall and took their
assigned seats earlier Monday soon af-
ter the assembly was called to order to
consider the issue of the South West,
which South Africa controls under a
League of Nations mandate since
removed by the United Nations.
Martin Chungong Ayafor of
Cameroon, chairman of the 51-nation
African group, immediately deonoun-
ced the South African delegation'.
presence as illegal, prompting the
assembly president, West German
Ambassador Ruediger von Wechmar,
to recess the session pending the
credentials committee decision.

SOUTH AFRICA WAS expelled from
the assembly's 1974 regular session on
grounds it was practicing race
segregation at home and holding on to
South-West Africa, known here a*
Namibia, in violation of U.N.
resolutions.
The South African delegation retur-
ned to the assembly at a resumed
session on South-West Africa in June
1979, but on another African initiative,
it-was etpelled again. Its reappearance
in the assembly yesterday was the first
since then.
South Africa administered Namibia
after seizing the territory from th4
Germans during World War I. The
United Nations, successor to the
League of Nations, ended the mandate
in 1966 but South Africa has refused to
withdraw and a guerrilla war continues
to be waged by black independence-
seekers belonging to the South-West
African People's Organization; or
SWAPO.
The General Assembly is meeting too
consider a resolution urging the U.N.
Security Council to adopt new sanctions
to force South Africa out of Namibia
and grant it independence.
