Turkish leaders
claim victory
over terrorism

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - The
generals who seized control of Turkey
six months ago are boasting of victory
over the rampant terrorism that prom-
pted their military coup. Last week
was the first week in four years to pass
without report of a political murder.
In private, however, some of the top
generals acknowledge they haven't
caught the ringleaders of -the rightist
and leftist terrorist bands that
threatened this NATO-member nation
with civil war.
Sept. 12 that toppled the civilian gover-
nment and establishing Turkey's third
military regime, the country is showing
signs of recovery frpm a political and
economic nosedive.
The most serious problem facing the
military leadership now are claims of
serious human rights violations - tor-
ture of prisoners arrested since the
coup and 9-day detentions without
Some European political leaders are
questioning whether Turkey should
have continued membership in the
Council of Europe in view of the claims.
THE TOP MILITARY leadership ap-
pears concerned with the charges and
most observers here believe coup

leader Gen. Kenan Evren and the other
members of the ruling National
Security Council genuinely abhor the
use of torture.
The semi-official Anatolia news
agency has reported there was no
political murder in the country between
March 2.and March 9. Not since 1977
has the country gone seven days
without a terrorist assassination.
INFLATION HAS been cut more than
-half, ,dropping from 100 percent an-
nually to about 40 percent now.
Exports, measured in dollars, have
nearly doubled, compared with mon-
thly figures a year ago.
Unemployment, however, is a
growing problem and a dangerous one
for the generals. Officially the rate of
unemployment is forecast to hit 12 per-
cent this year. Leftist economists say
the rate is already 16 percent and
western economists watching Turkey
believe the rate is already nearer 25
percent and growing.
The United States, along with West
Germany, seems committed to con-
tinuing its strong aid program. The
Reagan administration plans to give
even more than the record $700 million
former President Carter had pledged
for fiscal 1982.


Refugee trek
SOME 143 HAITIAN refugees make their way across a sandy Key Biscayne, Florida beach Thursday, after landing at a nearby lighthouse. Officials said
that the Haitian influx seems to be picking up momentum again.

Mideast Regional.

three straight 20-foot shots that cut the
lead to 91-90 with seven seconds left.
BC's Rich Shrigley hit two free
throws after time expired to provide the
final margin.

Special to the Daily
DETROIT-Keith Connor, an Englishman attending
Southern Methodist University, stunned a handful of fans and
officials as he leaped to a new worldindoor record of 56'9%"/
in the triple jump during the opening portion of the NCAA
Track Championships held at Joe Louis Arena last night.
Connor's leap came in the third round of qualifying trials,
and was, by his own admission, unexpected. "I wasn't
aiming for it, it just happened," he said, also adding that he
was not helped by the Arena's antiquated run-up surface,
which he described as the "worst in America," and had for-
ced him to shorten his normal approach of 130 feet to 99 feet.
CONNOR, WHO CAME to this country three years ago to
attend the University of Texas-El Paso (UTEP) on the
"recommendations of some friends" before transferring to
SMU the following year, is an accomplished competitor.
Ranked sixth in the world in the triple jump by Track and
Field News last year, he finished fourth in the 1980 Moscow
Olympics and had established a new collegiate record in the
same event (56'%") several weeks ago.
The main attraction schools in the U.S. offered Connor
were their track facilities. "I live in Slough, a town about 20,
miles north of London," he explained. "During the winter,
the nearest indoor facility is a 24-mile drive away, on the
West side of London."
Despite his'international experience, Connor has no plans
to participate in the highly competitive European track cir-

cuit this summer. "If I went back to Slough over the summer,
I wouldn't be able to find a job; the economy is very0
depressed there. I just want to compete for my team this
spring and then try to find some employment in the States."
See related story, page 7
CONNOR TRANSFERRED schools when his jump coach,
Ted McLaughlin, left UTEP to become the head coach at
SMU. McLaughlin had been assisting UTEP's controversial
head coach, Ted Banks, and there had been rumors that
Banks and Connor did not get along. "That is absolutely un-
true," said Connor. "Ted congratulated me for my
achievements when I left."
Connor has great respect for McLaughlin. "He cares about
you," he said. "He won't run i you in ten events (even) if
you're good in them all, like some American coaches do."
After having triple-jumped for the past six years, the 24-
year-old Connor is now trying other events, most notably the
long jump, where his personal best is over 25 feet, a notable
distance considering Connor's relative lack of speed. "I can
only do about'10.80 (in automatic timing) for the 100 meters,"
he said, which pales in comparison to the 10.21 (automatic
timing) speed of long jump record holder Carl Lewis of
Connor doesn't have any concrete long-term plans, but he
feels the "outdoor world record is within my grasp."
"I have no long range goals," he added. "I just train to get
better. That's all."

Feeling" or for whimsical effect in
"Credit Cards" and "Dying Flu" ("I
hate to leave this old world / Until I find
out what the next one's allabout").
The Icebreakers were almost as
satisfying as Collins himself. Playing
long introductions at the beginning of
each of the two sets, the band exhibited
masterful precision and surprising ver-
satility. Drummer Casey Jones
delivered the standard "Sweet Home
Chicago" with smooth relish, and

managed an admirable imitation of
Muddy Waters in the great man's
obligatory "Got My Mojo Working."
satility part, the band also covered an
old Howlin' Wolf tune and effortlessly
changed genres entirely for bottom-
heavy versions of "Rock Me Baby" and
"My Girl." Bassist Johnny B. Gadon,
late of the Staple Singers, delivered in-
fectious, lighting-quick bass licks,
while A.C. Reed (Jimmy's brother)
smoothed it all out with jazzy sax solos.
In fact, Reed provided one of the

highlights of the evening, a very sur-
prising one at that-a self-penned tune
called "I'm Fed Up With This Music."
"I tried playing rock and roll / And I
didn't have no luck / So now I'm playing
these blues again / And its got me all
fucked up," Reed complained. The
audience howled with glee. "I wanna be
a plain old working man," Reed con-
Well, I don't believe him and anyway
I hope he never gets his wish. Albert
Collins and the Icebreakers produce
startingly stirring blues of the finest
quality, so why break up a perfect com-
