Argentine activist
wins Peace Prize

Six Iranians hijack

OSLO, Norway (AP)-The 1980 Nobel
Peace Prize was awarded yesterday to
Adolfo Perez Esquivel, an Argentine
human rights activist who boldly
challenged his country's military
government and paid for it with more,
than a year in prison.
The 48-year old sculptor and architect
was honored for having "shone a light
in the darkness" of Argentina during a
period of leftist terrorism and right-
wing government repression the Nor-
wegian Nobel Committee said.
Perez Esquivel, who heads an
organization called Peace and Justice
Service, was chosen over 70 other
nominees, including President Carter,
Pope John Paul II, and two of the
negotiators of the Rhodesian peace,
British Foreign Secretary Lord
Carrington and Zimbabwe Prime
Minister Robert Muga be.
THE PRIZE carries a stipend of
880,000 Swedish kronor, equivalent to
$212,000.

The winner told reporters in Buenos
Aires, Argentina, that the prize "does
not belong to one person" but to all in
his Latin American rights movement.
He said it would stimulate him to con-
tinue working in search of a "change in
society that will allow man to live with
more dignity."
It was the third time in six years that
an individual or group devoted to
human rights work won the peace prize,
one of five annual awards established
by the will of the Swedish inventor of
dynamite, Alfred Nobel. The others
were Soviet dissident Andrei Sakharov
in 1975 and the prisoners-rights
organization Amnesty International in
1977.
LAST YEAR'S peace prize went to
Ronan Catholic missionary Mother
Teresa of Calcutta, India.
The Argentine was nominated by the
1976 peace prize winners Mairead
Corrigan and Betty Williams of the
Peace People movement in Northern
Ireland.

I Turkish Al
From UPI and AP
ANKARA, Turkey-Six Iranians
demanding to be flown to Iran hijacked
a Turkish Airlines jet with 155 people
aboard yesterday, but later began
releasing passengers at an airport in
eastern Turkey.
Forty women, six children and seven
elderly men were freed a few hours af-
ter the plane landed at Diyarbakir in
eastern Turkey, Turkish radio said.
ONE OF THE released women said
one of the hijackers stood up in the aisle
of the plane at one point and shouted,
"From now on the Moslem religious
law is in force on this plane."
The Boeing 727 landed in Diyarbakir
after the pilot refused the hijackers'
demands to go to Tehran, saying he did
not have enough fuel to make the flight.

rlines jet I
The flight, which originated in Muich,
West Germany, was en route to Ankara
from a stopover in Istanbul where the
hijackers boarded.
Turkish Airlines officials said there
were 148 passengers and seven crew
members aboard the plane when it was
hijacked near Ankara at about 6:30
p.m. (11:30 a.m. EDT).
At least two of the hijackers were
believed to be armed, airline officials
said.
The Diyarbakir police chief said the
hijackers were Iranians and were
believed to be medical students at
Istanbul University.
Meanwhile in Paris, police took
custody of a young man who fired blank
cartridges at the heavily guarded
residence of former Iranian Prime
Minister Bakhtiar last night.

property per year, the city would be
without $962,000 in forseeable revenues
and AATA would lose an additional
$193,000, Kenney explained.
The Milliken proposal would exempt
$7,100 of the state equalized valuation
for resident homesteads from all
operating millge. The state legislature
would reimburse local governments for
the cost of the exemption by increasing
the sales and use tax rates from four
per cent to 5.5 per cent.
Kenney said that by the mid-1980's
the increase in sales tax revenues will
be insufficient to fully reimburse
localities for the lost property taxes.
"That would result in approximately a
2 per cent reduction in local gover-
nment revenue reimbursemen-
ts-amounting to somewhere around
$300,000 or more," Kenney said.
THE SMITH/BULLARD Proposal,
on the other hand, mainly effects school
financing. It would reduce the local

property tax for general K-12, to seven
extra-voted miils and provide for a
state-wide property tax of up to 30.5
mils on business, industrial and other
non-homestead properties.
Kenney said the city would have
faced a potential loss of revenue
amounting to $298,000 last year under
the Smith/Bullard proposal.
Mayor Louis Belcher said, "I would
recommend that all three proposals be
defeated at the polls." Proposals A and
C "are simply the state's answer to the
Tisch plan," he added.
At a recent Michigan Municipal
League conference, Belcher said, "I
issued a challenge to the mayors of
Michigan to present a fair tax proposal,
one that could be implemented when
passed, and would not leave a lot of con-
jecture to the legislature."
Proposals A and C "put the power of
reallocation back with the state gover-
nment."

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Begin asks European
Jews to immigrate to Israel
JERUSALEM-Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin yesterday
called on the Jews of Europe to defend themselves against the awakening
"savage animal" of anti-Semitism and to immigrate to Israel.
Begin's strong speech opening the winter session of the Knesset (Israeli
parliament) came amid growing concern over a wave of anti-Semitic at-
tacks in France, including the bombing of a Paris synagogue ten days ago
that killed four people.
The bombing focused attention on neo-Nazism in Europe, and French
citizens jammed the Champs Elysee last week to demand ation from
President Valery Giscard d'Estaing's government.
U.S.-China grain deal near
PEKING-China and the United States reported yesterday they were
near agreement on one of the biggest grain deals in history.
The sales of up to nine million tons of grain per year could be worth up to
$1 billion annually to American farmers, according toagricultural experts.
The Carter administration had tried to keep the impending deal secret,
apparently hoping to make an announcement in Washington at a politically
opportune moment, but word of the deal eventually leaked out.
The deal would be one of the largest in history, rivaling a five-year con-
tract between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. That pact has provided up to
eight million tons of grain annually.
Quake aftershocks hit Algeria
AL ASNAM, Algeria-Several sharp aftershocks from last Friday's
earthquake rumbled through northwest Algeria yesterday as rescue teams
pressed on in their search for possible survivors buried beneath the rubble of
the city of Al Asnam.
Officials from the Red Crescent, the Algerian equivalent of the Red
Cross, estimated that 60,000 people had been injured in the quake and the af-
tershocks, some of which registered as high as 5.8 on the Richter scale. They
also revised upward their count of homeless to 200,000, and renewed urgent
appeals for more tents, prefabricated housing, and blankets to shleter
them.
Kelley discusses plans for
reducing prison crowding
LANSING-Attorney General Frank Kelley said yesterday holding
some inmates in county lockups and releasing others to halfway houses are
among the possible steps for complying with a court mandate to reduce
prison crowding.
But Kelley said releasing prisoners "outright" is a step he strongly op-
poses and said he might appeal if the court orders it.
Last week, ruling in a four-year-old suit by activist attorney Zolton
Ferency, Ingham County Circuit Judge Ray Hotchkiss said state prisons are
overcrowded and ordered plans to ease the problem to be presented today.
Officials say the system is about 1,500 to 2,000 inmates over capacity.
Jenrette to Vie f or re-ejection
despite Abscam conviction
. COLUMBIA, S.C.-Rep. John Jenrette (D-S.C.) announced in an
emotion-choked voice yesterday that he will remain in the running for re
election.
Jenrette, who could face up to 35 years in prison and fines of thousands of
dollars in the Abscam case, was convicted in Washington last week of accep-
ting a $50,000 bribe from undercover FBI agents posing as representatives of
an oil-rick sheik.
Jenrette faces Republican newcomer John Napier in the Nov. 4 election.
He refused to answer any questions.
AMA group spends $1 million
on TV ads for candidates
NEW YORK-Dr. Michael Levis, chairman of the American Medical
Association's Political Action Committee, said in a recent interview that his
group plans to spend $1.6 million supporting candidates in 32 House races
and 24 Senate races.

Political Action Committees such as the AMA's have been around for
years, but grew in numbers and importance after the Watergate scandal.
Post-Watergate federal election laws limited the amount of money in-
dividuals could contribute to candidates. In most cases, the limit is $1,888. As
a result, PACs have become the most important way that individuals in
special interest groups can make their political views felt.
