Jordan tells Haig
Israel is main threat
to Mideast peace

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) - Jor-
danian leaders, unresponsive to U.S.
warnings of a Soviet threat in the Mid-
dle East, told Secretary of State
Alexander Haig Jr. yesterday that
"Israeli aggression" poses the prime
danger in the region.
Haig, who U.S. officials said hoped to
build a "strategic consensus" in the
area against Soviet intentions, was ex-
pected to hear the same strong anti-
Israeli message from officials in Saudi
THE SECRETARY of state flew here
on the last leg of a four-nation Mideast
tour after a 24-hour stop in Amman,
Jordan, where he conferred with King
Hussein. He leaves Riyadh for Western
Europe on Wednesday.
While in Amman, the Haig party
issued an urgent new appeal for an end

With Haig by his side at an airport
departure ceremony in Amman; Jor-
dan's foreign minister, Marwan al
Kassem said the U.S. secretary of state
had been told in "a clear, direct and
amicable manner" that a Mideast
peace depends on a total Israeli with-
drawal from occupied Arab lands.
THE JORDANIAN minister, whose
king plans to visit Moscow next month,
made no mention of a Soviet threat to
the region.
Kassem, reaffirming Jordan's rejec-
tion of the U.S.-sponsored Camp David
peace process, told Haig the United
States should recognize the Palestine
Liberation Organization as the
representative of the Palestinian
people, and said peace negotiations
should be handled by the United

ATLANTA-Once Stephanie
Holmes made up her mind, it was
only a matter of time before the
pistol-packing ex-Marine nabbed
her man-a prison fugitive whose
big mistake was tangling with the
gutsy prison guard's wife.
Holmes, 28, drove her husband,
Phillip, to the Metro Correctional
Institute Monday so he could help
search for the convicted armed rob-
ber, Birdie Kent, 26, of Savannah.
Then she decided to hunt for the
fugitive herself.
"ON THE WAY I asked my
husband what I should do if I ran into
the man, and he told me to go
through the 'normal procedures,' "
Holmes said yesterday. "But I knew
he was not taking me seriously."
After dropping her husband off at
the medium-security prison, the
laid-off auto worker said she "got
some gas and made up my mind to
go ahead and try to find the guy,"
thinking the effort might help her

husband 'win a stripe or

tracks that appeared a likely escape
route, her husband's 9 mm

tracks, I gave him just enough time
to get in front, and I threw the car in

Holmes said she flagged down a
passing car with two men inside and
asked the passenger to hold the
pistol on the man, whom she ordered
to spread-eagle against the vehicle.
"I TOLD THE passenger to shoot
if he moved-just give me time to
get out of the way. And I frisked him
the way my husband told me."

Pentagon wants orbiting command center

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - U.S. defense
specialists, anxious about the activities of Soviet
military cosmonauts and killer satellites, are urging
President Reagan to ask Congress to establish a
Pentagon command center in permanent orbit above
The Soviets have said they expect to establish a
space station, for 12 to 14 persons, by 1985. Two
cosmonauts presently orbiting in the Salyut space
station are stark reminders of their aggressive pur-
suit of this goal.
REAGAN IS SAID to be receptive to the idea and

military planners -are clos'ely monitoring the first
space shuttle mission. The shuttle, crucial to military
space ambitions, is scheduled for launch on Friday.
Congressional space experts and Pentagon officials
have told Reagan that the shuttle, used to full
capacity, would block the Soviets from seizing con-
trol of the ultimate "high ground.".
Sen. Harrison Schmitt (D-N.M.), a former
astronaut who heads the Senate space subcommittee,
wants Reagan to commit the nation to develop a large
permanent multiman command center in orbit, using
the shuttle to ferry building materials, equipment

and personnel.
SCHMITT SAYS THAT THE shuttle is far superior
to anything the Soviets are developing and that= a
presidential declaration that it will be used to help
build and maintain a military space station would
demonstrate that "we're not going to allow the forces
of oppression to dominate that new ocean."
Military astronauts could keep track of troop, ship
and aircraft movements; monitor missile deployment
and testing; fly shuttle craft on tests or repair
missions, and inspect potentially hostile satellites,
destroying them if necessary.

Strike forces
f aniiiles to
wait in line
to bury dead.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP)-Bodies are accumulating at
funeral homes in San Francisco, where a 3-week-old
cemetery workers' strike has forced families to take a num-
ber and wait in line to bury their dead.
The living "are the ones who are hurt the worst," said
RobertMoore, manager of Halstead & Co., the-city's largest
funeral home where 13 embalmed corpses are being stored.
"THERE'S A GREAT deal of trauma associated with
death anyway," he said. "But not being able to put them
away and not knowing when you're going to be able to-that's
very difficult."
On March 18, 130 members of the Cemetery Workers and

Green Attendants Local 265 struck over an impasse in con-
tract talks with Associated Cemeteries.
"Everybody seems to think we just dig a hole and walk
away," Union Business Manager William Chapman said.
"But when it gets right down to it, we do some ugly and
gruesome work, and we're not paid enough for it."
THE UNION WANTS a three-year contract with a first-
year wage of $85 a day, an 11 percent increase over the $76
they earned under the last contract, plus an $8-a-day increase
in the second and third years. Management offered a 10 per-
cent raise over one year.

Liberals open fight to
extend voting rights

WASHINGTON (AP) - A coalition of
liberal House and Senate members
opened a tough battle yesterday to keep
alive key provisions of the 1965 Voting
Rights Act designed to give minority
voters easy access to the polls.
Led by Sens. Edward Kennedy (D,
Mass.) and Charles Mathias Jr. (R-
Md.), supporters of extending the
voting rights law conceded they face
strong opposition in the conservative
Congress, especially the Senate.
AT THE TIME OF its passage, the
1965 law was hailed as a major civil
rights landmark, and since then the
number of minority voters has doubled.
But the political climate has changed
dramatically, and in the Senate, sup-
porters of extension face the opposition
of Sen. Strom Thurmond (R-S.C.)
chairman of the Senate Judiciary
At a news conference, Kennedy
pledged to find other ways to get the
legislation introduced Tuesday before
the full Senate if Thurmond declines to
permit "fair consideration" by the

Those states - most of them in the
South - are included because in the
past they have had poor voting records
among blacks or Spanish-speaking
residents. Some still do.
Thurmond has said that provision of
the law has outlived its usefulness, and
if it is to be extended it should include
all 50 states, not just the South, which
he feels is being punished for past pat-
terns of discrimination.
Supporters deny any regional bias
and say the Justice Department also
now requires parts of many Northern
and Western states to submit changes
they make inelection rules.
