Judge offers CIA suit plan

WASHINGTON (AP)-A *federal
judge suggested a way yesterday to set-
tle the government's suit to recover the
profits from books pubilished by former
CIA agent Philip Agee, now one of the
sternest critics of the agency.
U.S. District Judge Gerhard Gesell said
the matter could be resolved if the
government agrees to drop its claim to
Agee's profits in return for a pledge
from the ex-spy that he will not publish
anything further about the CIA without
its approval.
"That might be beneficial to both
sides," Gesell said.
HE SAID THAT if the case goes to
trial, it's likely to take years to resolve,
and the government could be forced to
disclose secrets it would prefer to keep.
Gesell held a hearing on a motion by
Agee, who lives in Hamburg, West

Germany, to dismiss the government's
The Justice Department is seeking a
court order to confiscate profits from
two books, "Dirty Work I" and Dirty
Work II." The books deal with CIA ac-
tivities in Europe and Africa and name
individuals that Agee says are spies for
the United States.
THE GOVERNMENT suit was made
possible by an attempt by Agee last
year to recover documents from the
CIA, the National Security Agency, and
the State and Justice departments un-
der the Freedom of Information Act.
Agee was beyond the reach of any
U.S. government legal action because
he was outside the country until he him-
self filed the suit.,
Gesell ordered the government
yesterday to produce an affidavit from

CIA Director Stansfield Turner on the
current CIA policy regarding pre-
publication approval of works
published by agents.
nment must show that the suit against
Agee is not arbitrary or based simply
on the fact that it disapproves of what
he has been writing. "I assume it (the
policy) is different now or you're in
great trouble," Gesell said to Justice
Department lawyer David Anderson.
Agee's lawyer, Mark Lynch of the
American Civil Liberties Union, said
that the CIA has failed to deal with
publications by former agents in an un-
biased manner.
Lynch said that the government
engaged in "a whole chain of vigilan-
tism." He accused the government of
having planted spying devices in a

typewriter that was given to Agee in
1972 in Paris, of trying to dissuade
Agee's divorced wife from allowing
their children to visit Agee, and of
auditing the tax returns of Agee's
Lynch hinted that Gesell's offer of a
settlement might be accepted by Agee.
He said he would consider the offer and
added that Agee was willing to drop the
Freedom of Information suit.
The government's effort to obtain the
profits from Agee's books is based on
the secrecy pact signed by CIA em-
ployees, agreeing to clear all writing
before publication. The Supreme Court
ruled last Feb. 19 that former CIA agent
Frank Snepp must turn over the profits
he made on a book about the Vietnam
published without CIA approval.

Authorities to clam down
on anti-Castro group
NEW YORK-Federal and local authorities here have stepped up
efforts to smash the anti-Castro terrorist group Omega 7 which claimed
responsibility for the assassination in Queens Tuesday of a Cuban attache to
the United Nations.
The head of a police-FBI terrorism task force, distrubed by Omega 7'sn
intensified activities in the New York area, said a series of telephone
hotlines had been set up in hopes of gaining information on the group. "If
they thought the heat was on before, they ain't seen nothing yet. We're not
going to tolerate people shooting diplomats on the street," the official said.
In an anonymous phone call, an Omega 7 member warned that Paul
Roa, the Cuban ambassador to the U.N., is the group's next target.

Actors Gu ld to apologize

in 6 Mich. counties

to Matthau, regr
HOLLYWOOD (UPI)-The Screen Actors Guild said it
made a "gross error" because it did not have all the facts and
will apologize to Walter Matthau for charging him with "con-
duct unbecoming a Guild member."
The charge stemmed from work Matthau did last week in
promoting the movie "Hopscotch" during the actors strike
which enters its ninth week next week.
"We are, for a change, delighted and relieved to be able to
admit our error and extend our sincere regrets," SAG
President William Schallert said Thursday.
'WE ARE ALSO planning a full and formal apology to
Walter for any damage done to his reputation as a staunch
union member and supporter of the SAG strike," Schallert
It was the first known action against a performer in the 54-
day strike.

'ets "gross error'
The guild said Matthau and the movie's producer, Ely
Landau, had signed a waiver for another movie that they
believed also covered "Hopscotch."
"OUR RESEARCH makes it clear that both Matthau and
Landau were acting in good faith," said Schallert, adding it
was "now obvious that neither Walter Matthau nor Ely Lan-
dau had any intention of violating the strike order."
A federal mediator has called another meeting Sept. 15 at
2 p.m. between the actors' union and motion picture and
television producers in an effort to resolve the strike. An ac-
tors' negotiator says the talks could resume within a few

to receive apology

LANSING-Two new potential victims of a rare and often deadly form
of sleeping sickness have been hospitalized as state health officials expan-
ded the area of possible infection to six southwestern Michigan counties.
Health officials said there is a danger that the disease, Eastern Equine
Encephalitis, is being spread by mosquitoes and have warned the residents
of the six-county area to avoid contact with the insects.
Last week, three southwestern Michigan residents were hospitalized
with what appeared to be the rare disease and one remains in critical con-
dition. There have also been 66 more cases reported among horses in the six-
county area.
Foreign cars still most
fuel efficient
WASHINGTON-Once again, foreign cars filled the top ten spots on
the government's annual fuel-efficiency ratings released yesterday.
The Volkswagen Rabbit diesel captured the number one position for the..
fourth consecutive year with a thrifty 42 mpg: With the exception of another
Volkswagen model in third place, Japanese imports filled out the rest of the
top ten of the Environmental Protection Agency list.
Detroit did fair somewhat better this year, however, than in years
past-placing three cars at or over the 30 mpg mark. In a five-way tie for the
worst fuel rating-at 15 mpg-were Chevrolet's Corvette, an eight-cylinder
Pontiac Firebird and three Cadillac models.
Violence breaks out in Manila
MANILA, Philippines-In the worst outbreak of violence to sweep the
Philippine capital in eight years of martial law, urban guerrillas set off a .
string of bombs yesterday,.killing an American woman and wounding 30
other persons.
Annie Kuzmuk, 51, of Waterbury, Connecticut was killed when a bomb
ripped through a suburban department store where she was shopping.
The group that claimed responsibility for the bombings have pledged to
continue their terrorism until President Ferdinand Marcos steps down and
calls free elections.

on Carter's
'Ma fia aides
Italian-American politicians, with
some willing assistance from the White
House, pounced on Republican Ronald
Reagan yesterday for his use of the
term "Mafia" to describe the
Georgians at President Carter's elbow.
"The term Mafia is an offensive one
which Italian-Americans here worked
hard to erase from common usage,"
said a letter sent to Reagan and
released at the White House by Reps.
Mario Biaggi (D-N.Y.) and Geraldine
Ferraro, also D-N.Y., and deputy
chairwoman of the Carter-Mondale
campaign committee.
"THIS HAS THE effect of
stereotyping of Italian-Americans as an
entire ethnic group involved in illegal
activities and is an unfortunate choice
of words."
Biaggi spoke to reporters outside the
White House after he and several other
Italian-American members of Congress
attended an awards ceremony in the
Rose Garden.
He said a half-dozen Democratic
House members already had agreed to
sign the letter of protest, and he expec-
ted many more of the 32 Italian-
American representatives to sign as
is scheduled to address the national
Italian-American Foundation con-
ference in Washington on Saturday
night and said, "We trust you will use
the occasion of your appearance ... to
clarify this matter to all Italian-
Americans. Many of us will be sitting in
the audience awaiting your words."
The flap, which the White House
helped orchestrate on the eve of the
dinner which both Carter and Mondale
also plan to attend, was over a remark
attributed to the Republican presiden-
tial candidate in an interview published
Thursday in the New York Daily News.
Reagan was quoted as saying that if
he was elected president he would
select his staff from around the country
and there would not be "any little local
Mafia surrounding me."
President Carter's critics often have
cited the number of White House senior
staff members from Carter's native
Georgia, and the term "the Georgia
Mafia" has been used to describe them,
just as the term "Irish Mafia" was used
to describe the people who surrounded
President John Kennedy.

with London jewel heist
CHICAGO-Two men are being held in lieu of $200,000 bond in connec-
tion with the $2.4 million heist of an exclusive London jewelry store Thur-
The two men, both with long criminal records includin'g robberies and
other crimes, were arrested in Chicago's O'Hare International Airport after
a flight from London Thursday night. Scotland Yard had requested their
arrest after license plates of the getaway car were traced to the two men.
The stolen gems, including the $900,000 Marlborough Diamond, have not
yet been recovered.
IRS says few homeowners
claimed energy tax credits
WASHINGTON-Fewer than five percent of Amerjcan taxpayers
claimed a credit on their 1979 income tax returns for improving home energy
efficiency, the Internal Revenue Service reported yesterday.
The IRS said that, with 98 percent of the returns processed, only 4.5
million of the 90.0 million returns took advantage of the special credit. The
provision, enacted in 1978, allows taxpayers up to $300 to compensate for the
installation of storm windows, insulation or other energy-saving devices. A
less-used portion of the credit allows up to $2,200 per home to help offset the
cost of installing wind- or solar-powered equipment.

We trust- it will be encouragement to all the true and
sincere people of God to be reminded of several long
periods of time in the earth when men dwelt without fear
for their families, loved ones, and property, due to kings,
rulers, and governing authorities who would not counten-
ance or put up with lawlessness. May I ask any of the
"birds," or "beasts," or "humans," or in whatever
category you may belong who claim to believe that the
"death penalty" does not prevent crime: Did you ever see
a dead man commit murder? Did you ever see a dead man
rape a woman or girl? Do you reckon there was any rape,
adultery, homosexuality, or other crimes in Sodom on that
morning shortly after Lot went- out of the City and God
rained fire and brimstone from heaven upon it?

offending any man, but rather for the purpose of the writer
