WASHINGTON (AP)- Despite U.
disapproval of Libya's radical gove
nment, American firms have suppli
its military with $53 million in weapo

documents show.
The American-made equipment, e
ported to Libya since Moamm
Khadafy seized power in 1969, rang
from military cargo planes to weapo
sighting devices and guided miss:
components, according to documen
obtained by The Associated Press.
IN ADDITION, U.S. firms have so
Khadafy's government artillery par
ammunition, heavy trucks, uniform
and jet turbine engines, the documen
say.
Administration officials said th
have found no evidence that the expo

S. that the documents used to compile the
ar- export figures are destroyed after three

ns The documents show that military-

diplomats from the United States and
x- U.S. jets shot down two Libyan war-
ar planes in the Gulf of Sidra near the oil-
es rich Arab nation. Reagan has accused

ile global terrorism.
ts The Census Bureau, which tabulates
all U.S. exports and imports, counted

act for freedom of speech.
Enrenkreutz commended the group
for the rally, but said he did not agree
that economic sanctions against the
Soviet Union should be ended. "All the
messages that we receive from
Solidarity members in Poland are in
support of the action of President
Reagan," he said.
The other speakers disagreed. Brent
Davis, representative for the
Revolutionary Socialist League,
claimed that Reagan is working for
U.S. banks, and that he is making
Poland a debtors' prison.t Workers and
farmers fighting for freedom and a
decent life must "smash imperialism
and capitalism" all over the world, he
said.
WADE HANNAH, a member of the
Campus Labor Support Group, en-
couraged the crowd gathered in 16-
degree weather to chant rounds of
"Release the militants in martial law in
Poland," and "U.S. workers and
students unite, Polish workers and
students to fight."
Campus Labor's Lefrak said his
group wants to get students and
workers together to express solidarity.
Demands must be raised at this point in
time, Lefrak said in an interview.

IN BRIEF
Compilied from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
British miners stay on job
LONDON- Britain's 249,000 coal miners yesterday rejected calls for a
nationwide strike aimed at Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's Conser-
vative government.
But railmen vowed to continue their job action.
The National Union of Mineworkers announced that its members had
voted against the union executive's recommendation that they strike unless
the state-run National Coal Board gave them a 15 percent raise.
The union said 113,144 miners, or 55 percent, voted to accept a 9.3 percent
pay hike offer, while 91,477, or 45 percent, voted to reject it and strike.
Fibers link Williams
to Atlanta victims
ATLANTA- Fibers found on the bodies of two slain young blacks are
microscopically similar to fibers taken from carpets and other items in
Wayne Williams' home and car, a witness testified yesterday at Williams"
murder trial.
Larry Peterson, a microanalyst with the Georgia State Crime Laboratory
and the prosecution's star witness, said the fibers on the bodies were "con-
sistent" microscopically with fibers in eight times taken from Williams' car
and home.
"The microscopic characteristics and optical properties were the same,"
he said.
Williams, a 23-year-oldfree-lance photographer, is charged with murder
in the deaths of Jimmy Ray Payne, 21, and Nathaniel Cater, 27, two of the 28
young Atlanta blacks whose deaths over a 22-month period launched one of
the biggest criminal investigations in U.S. history. No arrests have been
made in the 26 other cases.
Experts probe mine blast
GRETHEL, Ky.- Dangerous blasting practices could have caused a Ken-
tucky mine explosion that killed seven men who had attended a safety
training class only last week, investigators said yesterday.
Officials awaited autopsy results that could provide further clues to the
nature of the explosion about 700 feet inside the RFH Coal Co. mine at 11 a.m.
EST Wednesday.
Speculation centered on the controversial practice known as " shooting the
solid," in which miners drill holes and stuff them with dynamiteto loosen the
coal.
United Mine Workers President Sam Church, who kept a vigil with mine
families until the bodies were brought out yesterday morning, said such
blasting should be banned if that was the' cause.
Gov. John Brown spoke to Church by telephone and promised he would
seek a coal mine safety meeting with state, federal, UMW and industry
representatives, possibly next week.
Jailed author Abbott
guilty of manslaughter
NEW YORK- Jailhouse author Jack Henry Abbott was found guilty
yesterday of first-degree manslaughter in the fatal stabbing of an aspiring
actor.
The state Sup me Court jury deliberated more than two days before
deciding Abbott killed Richard Adan, 22, on the street outside the Greenwich
Village restaurant where Adan worked as a waiter.
Abbott, who testified in his own behalf, claimed he stepped outside the
restaurant with Adan and stabbed him in self defens'e during a struggle. Ab-
bott said he believed the waiter was going to attackhir
Acting Supreme Court Justice Irving Lang scheduled sentencing for F~eb.
24 and ordered a psychiatric examination for Abbotts His sentence could
range from the minimum two to six years in prison to 12 to 25 years.
