Georgia. prof welcomed
back from prison term

ATHENS, Ga. (AP)-Professor
James Dinnan, jailed for three months
because he wouldn't reveal his vote in a
faculty promotion case, returned to
work yesterday and was welcomed by a
banner stretched across the doors of his
department by his University of
Georgia colleagues.
Dinnan, who was sentenced for con-
tempt of court, arrived on campus shor-
tly before 9 a.m. to resume his duties as
a reading and adult education
THE SMILING, 50-year-old Dinnan
was greeted by a large banner that
read: "The Reading Department
Welcomes Dr. Dinnan Back Home."
Many doors inside the department
were adorned with red and black rib-
bons, theschool colors, in his honor.
Dinnan wore the suit he was issued
when he left the prison at Eglin Air
Force Base in Florida, where he drop-

ped 45 pounds while working as a dish-
washer and toilet scrubber. He weighed
212 when he entered prison.
"MAYBE THAT'S my reward," Din-
nan said of his weight loss. He said the
prison food was "pretty good . . . but
since it was 130 degrees in the
washroom, it was easy to lose weight."
Dinnan, who was released from,
prison last week, surrendered to
authorities in July wearing his
academic robes.
"I just want to go back to my resear-
ch and teaching," he told reporters at
his office yesterday. "I suspect it will
be back to normal in a few days." He
said he will teach his first class
DINNAN WAS found in contempt of
court, fined $3,000 and sentenced to 90
days in prison after refusing the tell

Dinnan served on the faculty commit-
tee that denied her request for tenure.
Six committee members divulged their
votes, two others were not asked and
Dinnan refused.
A hearing has been scheduled Nov. 3
before the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Ap-
peals in Atlanta on Dinnan's appeal of
the contempt order issued by Owens.
"We're appealing the aspect of him
forcing me to reveal my vote," Dinnan
said. "I'm still in contempt, becuase I
haven't complied with his request."
If he loses the appeal, Dinnan could
be asked again how he voted. He said he
still would refuse to answer.

DR. JAMES DINNAN, a professor at the University of Georgia, is welcomed back to work by a colleague. Dinnan has
just completed a 90-day prison term stemming from contempt of court charges, for failing to reveal his vote in a faculty
promotion case.

China protests Soviet intrusion


p i

PEKING (AP)-Four armed Soviet intruders
crossed into Chinese Mongolia, killed a shepherd,
then began a firefight with Chinese border guards in
which one of the Soviets was killed, the Chinese
Foreign Ministry said yesterday. It was the first
China-Soviet border incident reported in more than a
China lodged a "strong protest" with the Soviet
Union over Sunday's incident, which Peking said
began when the intruders crossed the Argun River in-
to Inner Mongolia and tried to abduct a Chinese
shepherd. The shepherd, identified as Li Zhong,
resisted and was killed. The Soviets opened fire on
Chinese frontier guards who had rushed to the scene,
the protest note said.
IT SAID THE CHINESE fired back in self-defense,
killing one Soviet intruder inside China, and the three
others escaped in their motorboat back to Soviet
The Chinese protest, delivered to interim Soviet
Charge d'Affaires G.V. Kireev, declared, "In

disregard of the repeated warnings of the Chinese
side, the Soviet authorities now have created another
incident of bloodshed along the Sino-Soviet border,
killing a Chinese and encroaching on China's
territorial soverignty.
"It must be pointed out that the Soviet side is
doomed to failure in its attempt to profit from
creating border tension and that it must bear full
responsibility for all the consequences arising
therefrom," the note continued.
IT DEMANDED THAT Moscow "punish the
culprits of this incident and stop all armed
provocations along the Sino-Soviet border."
The last reported border incident between the
communist giants came in July 1979, when Peking
alleged that Soviet soldiers killed one Chinese and
wounded another in a cross-border ambush along the
Sinkiang Province frontier.
That came as the two sides were preparing to begin
talks on improving relations strained during the last
two decades amid Chinese charges of Soviet "im-

NO PROGRESS WAS reported in the first round of
talks last fall in Moscow. Before the planned second
round could begin in Peking this year, the Chinese
declared that continuing the talks would be inap-
propriate in the wake of Soviet intervention ilo
The Soviets sent some 100,000 troops irto
Afghanistan late last year to help the Marxist regime
in Kabul put down a rebellion by anti-communst
Moslem guerrillas. The State Department says most
/of those Soviet forces remain in Afghanistan.
China claims Moscow has more than one million
troops stationed along the China-Soviet border, and
has described the Soviet Union as "the main danger
of war" in the world.
The Soviet Union's armed forces total some 3.5
million men, according to The International Institute
for Strategic Studies. The institute says China ha*
almost a million more men under arms, but that
Moscow's strategic weapons make it a far superior
military power

former intelligence chief, acted without
Kleindienst's knowledge in approving
the so-called "black bag jobs."
The prosecution did not explain why
it decided not to call Kleindienst. He
may still be asked to testify as a gover-

defense, since Felt and Miller argue
Kleindienst delegated the surveillance
authority to the FBI.

who served in 1954.
