54-day-old war shifted from the Gulf

BRASILIA, Brazil (AP)-The Peace
Corps is quietly closing down
operations in Brazil, rejected by a
government master plan that prefers
high level technical assistance to the
social rehabilitation programs offered
by the American volunteer agency.
All but one of the 24 remaining Peace
Corps volunteers in this South
American nation are scheduled to leave
at the end of their work contracts thi
year and the last worker is to depart
early in 1981.
The Brazilian Foreign Ministry says
that in consultation with the Ministry of
Planning, it has chosen not to approve
new contracts for Peace Corps
programs "because this is not the type
of technical assistance we think is most
important to the nation at this time."
Government officials say there
should be no political connotation at-
tached to the decision, noting that
volunteer programs from France and
West Germany also may be affected by
But U.S. sources say they must con-
clude that either there is a political
reason for rejecting the free help or else
that Brazil-the world's eighth largest
industrial power-thinks there is a
stigma attached to having a program
usually identified with underdevelop-
"Brazil is having a lot of trouble get-
ting financing from some banks and in-
ternational agencies," said one infor-
med American source, who asked not to
be named. "So, if they're angry, the
Peace Corps happened to be a con-
venient hand to slap."
NEW YORK - Eastern Air Lines yesterday announced a reduction in its
recent fare increases on the California-New York route, after kicking off a
wave of airline ticket price hikes.
American Airlines and United Airlines have said they will match
Eastern's fares. Trans World Airlines, the other large carrier on the route,
has not announced a decision on its fares.
, The least expensive round-trip ticket between Los Angeles and New
York will be $455 on midweek night flights, starting Jan. 1, up from the
current $268 and the low of $198 that prevailed earlier this year when Eastern
started a pricg war on the route. Purchasers will have to buy tickets at least
30 days in advance and stay a week before returning.
'Super gonorrhea' cases
increase in L.A. area
ATLANTA - A major outbreak of penicillin-resistant gonorrhea in the
Los Angeles metropolitan area was reported yesterday by the nationAl Cen-
ter for Disease Control. The agency also announced an increase in cases of
the disease in 6ther major cities.
The CDC said the 149 cases of the so-called "super gonorrhea," which
occurred in Los Angeles County, Calif., between August and mid-October,
was a "sharp increase" compared to the 11 cases reported in the area during.
the past four years. Cases of the strain have also occurred in most states of
the country, with the most recent increases in the Tacoma, Wash. area and
in New York City..
The resistant strain was believed imported into this country by military
personnel returning from the Far East, where "super gonorrhea" is now
epidemic. The CDC said the Los Angeles outbreak was unlike others because
only six per cent of the cases could be traced to infection acquired outside the
Ruptured Toyota tanks led to
36 deaths, report says
WASHINGTON - Thirty-six people have burned to death in fires that
erupted when fuel tanks ruptured in Toyota Corollas and Caronas manufac-
tured between 1966 and 1979, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety
The agency said there is enough evidence - compiled from police repor-
ts, newspaper clippings, and government files - to warrant a full-scale
A spokesman for the government's National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration said the agency already is analyzing engineering on Toyotas
made between 1969 and 1973. He said the results will determine if an in-
vestigation should be made - a step that could lead to a recall.
A spokesperson for Toyota Motors Sales USA, Inc., in Torrance, Calif.,
said the safety aencv absolved the cars of problems last year.
State agency chair says
lawmakers 'grossly underpaid'
WASHINGTON - The chair of the State Officers Compensation Com-
mission said yesterday lawmakers are "generally underpaid" but other
commissioners are worried about the symbolic impact of raises in the face
of a recession, tight budget, and tax revolt.
But the top 'members'of the Senate and House staffs defended their
bosses' high-ranking salaries and recommended an increase of about 8.4 per
The seven-member commission, appointed by Gov. William Milliken, is
charged with setting pay for the governor, lieutenant governor, Michigan
Supreme Court justices, and legislators. Its decision, which must be reached
by next month, can be overturned by a two-thirds vote of the legislature,
although such an action is virtually unheard of.
Iran parliament breaks, but
hostage issue still unresolved
WASHINGTON - Iran's parliament began a week-long religious break
yesterday, without considering U.S. proposals on freeing the 52 American
hostages, dimming hopes for any homecoming this year.
But the State Department refused to be discouraged by the continuing
silence. "I'm certainly not ready to use words like setback or disappoin-
tment," said a spokesman. "We are, as of this moment, still awaiting the J
Iranian response or reaction."
California mafia men indicted
Five reputed mafia figures were found guilty yesterday of racketeering
conspiracy, but were acquitted on charges of murder of informer Frank
Two of the men were found guilty of extorting money from a por-
nography operation, which was set up by the FBI as a ruse to lure the mob
into exposing its alleged plan to shake down pornographers in the Los
The jurors implicitly decided that the men were members of the Los
Angeles family of La Cosa Nostra - the first time the federal government
hassever made such an allegation in a federal indictment.

Psalms 2:1 and Acts 4:25
"BUT MOSES STOOD UP AND HELPED THEM" -
Exodus 2:17. Helped those who were being cheated out of
their own rights. Moses was born with a "death penalty"
on his head because of his sex and race: sex, male; race:
Hebrew. Both were determined by his Creator. He had no
choice in the matters at the time of birth, but when he was
grown God gave him the opportunity to choose: "BY
