Poland rounds up anti-socialists

WARSAW, Poland (AP)-Polish authorities
cracked down sharply on dissidents yesterday in a
move apparently aimed at demonstrating Poland's
will to crush the "anti-socialist forces" , often at-
tacked by its Soviet-bloc allies.
Before the latest spate of anti-dissident actions, the
leaders set the meeting to map a reaction to the five-
hour detention Thursday of dissident leader Jack
Kuron on charges he slandered the state.
IN WROCLAW EARLY yesterday, authorities
tried to serve a summons to dissident Adam Michnik,
but he refused and union leaders put him under the
protection of "worker guards," a spokesman said.
The official news agency PAP then announced that
Robert Moczulski, 51, and three members of the ex-
treme nationalist Confederation of Independent
Poland, of KPN, were indicted on charges of ac-
tivities aimed against "basic political interests of
Poland."
A Solidarity spokesman in Wroclaw said the
dissident Michnik, there for a meeting with students,

refused the summons to appear before a prosecutor
Monday.
THE SOLIDARITY statement on Michnik did not
give the reason for the summons. Michnik and Kuron
belong to the dissident Committee for Social Self-
Defense, KOR, which has been advising Solidarity.
Other indicted KPN members include Romuald
Szeremitiewow, 36, Tadeusz Stanski, 33, and Tadeusz
Jandiziszak, 39, PAP said.
After nearly two weeks of relative calm in Poland's
labor crisis, tensions began to build here after a
Moscow meeting between Soviet and Polish leaders
that ended with a declaration in which the Soviets ex-
pressed the conviction that Polish communists could
"reverse the course of events" and solve Poland's
problems.
UNCONFIRMED rumors circulated here that
Solidarity leader Lech Walesa would meet before the
Saturday session with Premier Gen. Wojciech
Jaruzelski, who in his inaugural address Feb. 11
called for a 90-day respite from the labor unrest that

has swept Poland since last July.
In the United States, fears of Soviet intervention in
Poland resurfaced with Western reports of Polish
troop movement over the past two days, movements
that coincided with the Kremlin's harshest
declaration yet on Poland's problems.
Western observers in Warsaw said they detected
troop movements that suggested joint Polish-Soviet
maneuvers could begin soon. Observers here say
such maneuvers are normal at this time of year, but
the action raised concern at the State Department.
Workers in the central industrial city of Lodz, on
strike alert since Wednesday over the firing of union
members, said they would make no further decision
until after a Saturday leadership meeting of the in-
dependent labor movement Solidarity.
The strike alert in Lodz, and the urgent meeting of
the Solidarity leadership, were the first since major
strikes ended here Feb. 20 with the settlement of a
farmers' protest in southeastern Poland.

S

Salvador
guerrillas
massacre
peasants

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP) - Military sources
said yesterday that left-wing guerrillas massacred "hun-
dreds" of peasants they accused of cooperating with gover-
nment troops during an operation in and around San Lorenzo.
An army spokesman and the military sources also reported
troops had driven anti-government guerrillas out of two
provincial cities in fighting that left at least 65 people dead.
OFFICIALS HAD reported guerrilla bands in San Lorenzo,
45 miles northeast of San Salvador, were "wiped out" in a
campaign last week, but the sources said there was renewed
fighting there yesterday and other guerrillas had killed hun-
dreds of peasants for supporting the troops in the earlier
operation. They gave no details of the alleged massacre.
The army spokesman reported at least 30 guerrillas slain
in a 24-hour battle for Jutiapa, 30 miles east of San Salvador,
and he said guerrilla activity appeared to be decreasing
around the country.
The military sources reported another battle, however, at
San Antonio de Los Ranchos, 50 miles north of the capital,
and said 35 people, including an unspecified number of

soldiers, were killed in the fight that ended yesterday with
the army recapturing the city.
IN WASHINGTON, President Reagan described U.S. goals
in aiding the civilian military junta as "an attempt to try to
halt infiltration into the Americas by terrorists." He told a
news conference that none of the 54 advisers being sent to El
Salvador would be going into combat, but acknowledged that
"we can't, I'm sorry to say, make it risk free."
In Moscow, the Soviet news agency Tass yesterday ac-
cused Washington of making "malicious inventions" about
Soviet and Cuban involvement in El Salvador to mask its
own interference in the Central American country.
Tass charged that the U.S. government was trying to sup-
press El Salvador's national liberation movement "by force
of arms" while simultaneously trying to turn it "into a sub-
ject of East-West confrontation."
In another development, Sen. Edward Zorinsky (D-Neb.)
claimed in an interview with the Omaha World-Herald that
the FBI and the Salvador government know the identities of
those who last December killed four Americans in El
Salvador - three nuns and a lay religious worker.

jet kill one
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) -
Hijackers shot and mortally wounded a
Pakistani hostage-diplomat yesterday
and set a new deadline for Pakistan to
meet their demands for release of 115
hostages aboard a Pakistani jetliner
commandeered to Kabul last Monday,
Radio Afghanistan said.
An official Pakistani spokesman here
promptly accused Afghanistan of per-
mitting "this cold-blooded murder."
THE AFGHAN broadcast said the

hostage
new deadline was 3 p.m. Saturday, 5:30
a.m. EST.
The Afghan radio also reported an
American hostage aboard the plane,
said some passengers were becoming
ill, and urged a speedy settlement of the
crisis. Six Americans were reported
among the hostages held by three
hijackers demanding release of
political prisoners in Pakistan.
The Kabul broadcast monitored here
gave no details of events leading up the
fatal shooting except to say that it oc-
curred while one of the hijackers was
speaking on the cockpit radio with the
chief Pakistani negotiator at the air-
port control tower.
ACCORDING TO freed hostages
evacuated to Pakistan Tuesday, the
hijackers had a list of four hostages to
be executed one at a time if their
demands were not met. They also
threatened to blow up the plane.
The slaying and Pakistani accusation
of Afghan complicity further clouded
negotiations already difficult because
of strained relations caused by the
presence of Soviet troops in the coun-
try. The Soviets moved into
Afghanistan in December 1979.
Soviet Embassy personnel were
reported by a reliable source in Kabul
to be involved in the negotiations and
Soviet troops were said to be alerted at
the airport.
The shooting victim, identified as
Tariq Rahim assigned to the Pakistani
Embassy in Tehran, Iran, was taken to
a nearby hospital after a hijacker on
the plane notified Afghan authorities by
cockpit radio to remove a body, the
broadcast said. He died 2% hours later.

U.S.

will sell aircraft

parts to Saudi Arabia

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Reagan
administration, despite Israeli objec-
tions, announced yesterday the sale of
sophisticated military equipment for
Saudi Arabian jet fighters to counter "a
serious deterioration" of U.S. security
interests in the Middle East.
State Department spokesman
William Dyess said the administration
will sell the Saudis extra-large fuel
tanks and Sidewinder air-to-air
missiles that will increase the range
and the firepower of the 62 F-15 inter-
ceptor aircraft the Saudis have or-
dered.
DYESS ALSO said the United States
will provide the F-15s with a refueling
capability and that bomb racks may be
supplied for defense against an in-
vasion of Saudi territory. Aerial sur-
veillance aircraft will be sold to the
Saudis, subject to a study of their
requirements.
The announcement touched off vocal
opposition from both Israeli officials
and pro-Israeli members of Congress.
Israeli ambassador Ephraim Evron,
in a conversation yesterday with Un-
dersecretary of State James Buckley,
expressed "great concern and disap-
pointment," Israeli sources said.
SEN. JOSEPH BIDEN (D-Del.) said
he would introduce a resolution aimed
at blocking the sale and that there is a
50-50 chance Congress will approve it.
Both houses of Congress would have to

vote against the sale to block it.
The Carter administration won 4p-
proval of the F-15 sale to Saudi Arabia
in 1978 as part of a package deal under
which Israel and Egypt also received
sophisticated jet fighters. At the times
some members of Congress expressed
concern the sale could invite a pre-
emptive military strike by Saudi
Arabia against Israel.
The sale was approved after the Car-
ter administration offered assurances
the Saudis would not receive the ac-
cessories. But Dyess said yesterday
that since 1978, there has been a
"serious deterioration in security con-
ditions in the Middle East-Persian Gulf
region.
"THE SOVIET invasion ofW
Afghanistan, the turnioil of the Iranian
revolution, the Iran-Iraq war and the
Soviet presence in South Yemen and
Ethiopia underscore the instability in
the region and the dangers of Soviet
penetration and exploitation."
U.S. officials said the administration
is attempting to respond to Israel's
concerns in several ways.
They said deliveries of F-15 and F-16
jet fighters to Israel may be ac-O
celerated and the administration plans
to increase by $300 million in both 1983
and 1984 the level of military credit
sales for Israel.
