B YRD PROMISES 'INTENSE' SCRUTINY OF HAIG
Cabinet naming this week

WASHINGTON (AP) - When President-elect
Ronald Reagan returns to the nation's capital this
week, he'll find a political city eager to have him and
a frantic - and often confused - game of guess-the-
Cabinet. Chances are good he'll shed some light on
the makeup of his new administration.
As Reagan relaxed and pondered his choices in
California, aides on both coasts indicated announ-
cement of at least several Cabinet appointees can be
expected during his week-long trip to New York and
Washington.f
BUT AT LEAST two of Reagan's reported choices
for top jobs - retired Gen. Alexander Haig at the
State Department and New York banker Walter
Wriston at Treasury - apparently were still up in the
air over the weekend.
Haig's past connections --with former President
Richard Nixon and former Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger were drawing fire from some quarters.
Senate Democratic leader Robert Byrd declared
yesterday that Senate scrutiny of any Haig
nomination "will be intense."
"It would be irresponsible of the Senate not to take
a very close look at his Watergate role" in confir-

mation hearings, Byrd said, adding that he would op-
pose a Haig nomination.
HAIG CAME to the White House as assistant to
Kissinger, who is unpopular among "new right" con-
servative Republicans. Haig took over as Nixon's
chief of staff in fthe turbulent Watergate weeks
leading to the former president's resignation.
Wriston, reportedly Reagan's top choice to head
Treasury, is chairman of Citicorp, the nation's
second-largest bank. However, a subsidiary,
Citibank,. is involved with claims against Iranian
assets and with loan guarantees for New York City,
raising possible conflict-of-interest problems because
those issues are before the Treasury Department.
Wriston also reportedly faces complex questions
about what to do with his substantial banking
holdings if he shouls take the Cabinet post.
Sources said other possible candidates for the job
include Donald Regan, chairman of Merrill, Lynch
and Co., the nation's largest brokerage firm, and
Charles Walker, a deputy Treasury secretary in the
Nixon administration.
SOME OTHER top appointments - such as Caspar
Weinberger at Defense and William Casey at the

CIA - were considered more settled. But those, too,
could still be shuffled if Haig or Wriston are not
named, leaving their slots open, several sources said.
NEVERTHELESS, the surest bets by the weekend
seemed to be:
* Weinberger, budget director and secretary of
health, education, and welfare in the Nixon ad-
ministration. Considered a certain Reagan selection,
probably as secretary of defense.
" :William French Smith, Reagan's personal
lawyer, as attorney general in charge of the Justice
Department.
Casey, Reagan's campaign manager and a former
chairman of the Securities and Exchange Com-
mission, as director of the CIA.
" Sen. Richard Schweiker of Pennsylvania,
Reagan's running mate in his unsuccessful 1976 bit
for the GOP presidential nomination, as secretary of
health and human services.
" Drew Lewis, Pennsylvania businessman and
deputy chairman of the Republican National Com-
mittee, as transportation secretary.

Soviet Press: West'
plots' against Poland

forces of the Warsaw Pact states,
whose backbone is the Soviet army.
"TH1EREFORE, the strengthening of
the alliance with the fraternal land of
the Soviets remains the main guarantee
of Poland's independence, security and
successful development," the
newspaper said.
The Soviet army newspaper Red Star
and the Soviet Communist Party
newspaper Pravda said in dispatches
from Washington that the AFL-CIO was
accelerating what they called "inter-
ference," and was acting as a
"provocateur" in Poland by sending
tens of thousands of dollars to indepen-
dent Polish trade unionists..
"The entire Polish people are aware
of the fact that friendship and alliance
with the Soviet Union are a guarantee
of our national independence, of the
country's peaceful future, and in-
dispensable condition for the successful
development in all fields," the Soviet
dispatch from Washington said.
THE STORY ALSO said the giant

American labor federation puts out a
Polish-language news sheet for
distribution in Poland.
"In close connection with the CIA, the
AFL-CIO has carried on active'sub-
versive activity for years against the
progressive international workers'
movement," the article said.
AFL-CIO spokesman Alan Zack
yesterday disputed the charges of inter-
ference, saying the Polish government
in the late 1950s signed a Freedom of
Association Declaration of the Inter-
national Labor Organization-a United
Nations group-permitting such con-
tacts.
In an interview with reporters in
Washington, he said the AFL-CIO
established a fund that has raised
$150,000 so far to pay for office equip-
ment being sent to the Polish union
Solidarity. The Polish union, which
claims 10 million members, was in the
vanguard of the August strikes that led
to the unprecedented recognition of in-
dependent unions by a Soviet bloc coun-
try.

By United Press International
Former members of the radical
Weather Underground say last week's
surrender by Bernadine Dohrn and
William Ayers in Chicago means the
end of the group.
Since its founding in 1969, Dohrn was
the most important member of a group
that apparently grew smaller as the
1970s progressed. She was at the
forefront of a factional fight in 1977, an
apparent last gasp to keep the group
alive, two former members say.
"JUST LOOK AT the list of people,"
said one former member, who dropped
out of the Underground in 1977.
"'There's nobody left. How do you
have an underground when there's,
nobody underground? People have
moved on, given up. They (former
Weather Underground members) are
doing positive things in their com-
munities. The ideas haven't died, just
the whole underground thing," said the
former member, who spoke on the con-
dition there be no identification.
The FBI, which spent more than $1
million hunting Dohrn, disagreed with
the former member's analysis.
"THE UNDERGROUND worked and
it still works," said Tom Locke, former
head of the FBI's New York Fugitive
squad. He added, however, that the FBI
has given up intense searches for
radicals.
"We can assume there are still people
underground that are just waiting for a
cause," Locke said.
And when Ayers refused to answer
questions in Chicago last week he said
he did so because "the survival of
others depends on our silence."
But the former member said there
were only a handful of members in 1977
and even fewer now.
"They*(Dorhn and Ayers) could have

stayed under forever and it wouldn't
have made any difference. The
movement as it was in 1970 is dead,"
the source said.
"The conditions of oppression still
exist, of course, but it's time to concen-
trate on the positive. All the interest in
these radical 'super-stars is just
nostalgia. The Weather Underground is
a dead issue."

declamatory to mock fugal, they are
perhaps the most well-known works for
chorus in the world. The "Since by man
came death," chorus is possibly the
most powerful with its dramatic use of
dynamic contrast, which was done
beautifully here. Some of the sopranos'
embellishments in "For unto us a Child

4 born," were a little rough, but other-
wise was a jubilant work. Of course, the
familiar "Allelujah" chorus was the
high spot of the evening, at least as far
as the audience is concerned. The per-
formance of this chorus with audience
may not have been note-perfect on the
part of many, but it certainly was hear-
tfelt and triumphant in its execution.
