f Ground broken
TZ Ifor Vietnam
vets memorial

was broken yesterday for the
nation's memorial to its Vietnam
veterans, a monument that once
revived the controversy over the
war it commemorates.-
"Let this memorial begin the
healing process and forever stand as
a symbol" of national unity, said Jan
Scruggs, the founder and president
of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial
SCRUGGS, capping a ceremony
attended by about 2,000 people,
joined with 125 Vietnam veterans
and dignitaries in turning shovelfuls
of damp earth.
The $7 million memorial, being
built on two acres in Constitution
Gardens between the Lincoln
Memorial and the Washington
Monument, will be dedicated Nov.
11, Veterans Day.
The memorial, to be funded by
private donations is in the shape of a
"V," with the ends pointing toward
the structures honoring the two past
presidents. Its black granite walls
will be inscribed with the names of
'the 57,692 dead and missing
Americans who served in Vietnam.

THE,.DESIGN, by a Yale Univer-
sity architectural student, drew
criticism from some veterans, 27
members of Congress, and the con-
servative publication National
Review. They said it did not
properly honor the 2.7 million
Americans who fought in Vietnam.
Two days ago, Scruggs and other
backers of the original design an-
nounced a compromise that will add
a flagpole, heroic statute and two in-
scriptions, including the words,
"God Bless America.''
"The divisiveness and discord that
marked the Vietnam War and that
once threatened this very memorial
is no more," Jack Flynt, national
commander of the American
Legion, said at yesterday's
Scruggs, who was wounded as an
Army infantryman, called it "a
beautiful and fitting tribute... Viet-
nam veterans have waited a long-
time for this."
The original design by 21-year-old
Maya Ying Lin was picked in a
national competition. She was in
China yesterday and did not attend
the ground-breaking.

Reagan talks to black clergy
WASHINGTON- President Reagan, trying to calm criticism from
minorities, yesterday denied his administration has "attacked the poor to
reach our own goals" and promised to take his message personally to black
The president told about 75 black clergymen attending a White House lui-
cheon that his program to turn the economy around, including elimination of
a number of federal programs geared to help the disadvantaged, was
designed to help everyone.
"Some well-meaning programs robbed recipients of their dignity, trapped-
them into a dependency that left them with idle time, left them with little self
respect and left them with little prospect of a better future," Reagan said.
The meeting was requested by Reagan as a "dialogue" to find ways in
which churches and the administration can work together to improve con-
ditions for the poor.
Polish court to try officials.
WARSAW, Poland- The Polish Parliament yesterday set up a court to try
officials-past and present-for ruining the economy and gave farmers
clear title to their land in a move intended to encourage production.
The new state court will hold officials accountable for their policies. But
Western sources said former Communist Party leader Edward Gierek and
former Prime Minister Piotr Jaroszewicz, whose policies many blame for
Poland's current $25 billion foreign debt, could escape trial.
Both Gierek and Jaroszewicz were in powe in the 70s and are now being
held by martial law authorities. Gierek fell from power within days of the
1980 rise of the independent labor union Solidarity, which was banned in
December when martial law was imposed.
Jaroszewicz, 72, is widely, suspected to have enriched himself during
almost a decade in power.
Poland's state-run news media, meanwhile, announced that dancing at
discotheques and night spots will be permitted starting Monday, ending a
ban that began with the imposition of martial law Dec. 13.
The newspaper Kurier Polski said dancehalls will be allowed to stay open
until10 p.m., an hour before the start of a six-hour curfew.
British vote may shift power
GLASGOW, Scotland- Britain's Social Democratic Party celebrated its
first birthday yesterday with champagne and a special election victory by
co-leader Roy Jenkins, who declared he was ready to lead the centrist
alliance to power.
Hillhead voters, in a special election Thursday, sent Jenkins to the House
of Commons with a 2,038-vote majority over his Conservative opponent, 33-
year-old Gerry Malone, thus ending a 63-year Tory hold on the conservative
district. The Labor candidate, David Wiseman, 38, ran third.
The ruling Conservatives and opposition Laborites expressed concern
over the defeat. Analysts say the loss indicates the two major parties may
finally have lost their 60-year grip on British politics.
Before the election the Conservatives had 334 seats and a comfortable 34-
seat majority in the Commons, where Labor held 240 seats. The alliance, the
third-largest group, had a total of 40-28 Social Democrats and 12 Liberals.
"The alliance is going hard to win the next general election scheduled
early 1984," said an ebullient Jenkins. "If people want me to lead it, I'm
willing to do so."
Blast kills three in Lebanon
BEIRUT, Lebanon - A time bomb exploded underneath a seat in an X-
rated movie theater in Christian East Beirut yesterday, killing two people
and injuring 20, police said.
A caller claiming to be from the Front for the Liberation of Lebanon from
Foreigners took responsibility for the latest bombing incident.
An exodus of diplomats from Beirut continued with an announcement by
the West German Embassy that it had closed two cultural centers, a school
and a research center because of threats against -the lives of West German
The threats were made after police inStuttart arrested three Syrians
suspected of plotting to assassinate anti-Syrian government Moslems living
in West Germany, according to West German officials.

Nicaraguan leaders ready to negotiate

MANAGUA, Nicaragua (UPI) -
Daniel Ortega, leader of the leftist San-
dinista junta, said yesterday le was
waiting for "a serious response" from
Washington to the Central America
peace proposal he presented to the U.N.
Security Council.
Ortega was greeted at Managua's
airport by about 500 cheering and chan-
ting youths upon his return from New
York, where he addressed the council
Thursday, announcing that Nicaragua,
Cuba And leftist rebels in El Salvador
all were ready to negotiate with
HE SAID HE was awaiting a more
complete response to his proposal from
the United States than the initial an-

swer given by U.S. Ambassador to the
United Nations, Jeane Kirkpatrick.
During her speech in the Security
Council Thursday, Kirkpatrick denied
as "ridiculous" Ortega's charge that
the United States was about to back an
invasion of Nicaragua.
She said the United States has been.
ready to negotiate for a long time but.
that Nicaragua had not responded and
she proposed that talks be held under
the auspices of the Organization of
American States.
SEVERAL dozen members of the
diplomatic community, including U.S.
Charge d'Affairs Roger Gamble, the
top American official before the arrival
,,of new ambassador Anthony Quainton,
also greeted the junta chief.

Continuing the Sandinista effort to
improve ties with the United States,
Ortega said Quainton's accreditation
ceremony yesterday gave "the U.S.
representative the opportunity to
achieve greater communication with
the government of Nicaragua.'
Ortega, who blasted the United States
in the Security Council, said Nicaragua
scored a victory by presenting its
proposals for Central American peace
to the United Nations.
Ortega demanded the United States
stop training Nicaraguan exiles in
Florida and Honduras for raids into
Nicaragua and sought the Reagan ad-
ministration's promise not to intervene
in Nicaraguan affairs.

'Condom Week' stretches taxpayer resources

WASHINGTON (UPI)- Planned Parenthood's use
of federal funds for a "National Condon Week Rub-
ber Disco" dance was an "outrageously crude"
waste of taxpayer money, Health and Human . Ser-
vices Secretary Richard Schweiker said yesterday.
Schweiker said he asked the HHS inspector general
to look into Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan
Washington's sponsorship of the Feb. 19 dance, which
included a condom-blowing contest with a $35 prize.
The disco was festooned with multicolored condoms
for the occasion
REP. ROBERT Walker (R-Pa.) said the week was

advertised with the slogan, "Help Make Washington
Safe for Loving," and added, "This is fat of the worst
Schweiker said use of federal funds for the dance
"is tasteless and a flagrant example of irrespon-
sibility and bad judgment at any time, but especially
in these times of budget restraint."
HHS, which released Schweiker's statement, also
supplied copies of promotional literature on the four-
th annual "rubber disco," held at The Beret, a
District of Columbia nightspot.
"ADMISSION free with a condom," read the in-

vitation by Planned Parenthood's Men's Center.
"Dress: informal."
The dance was held as part of National Condom
Week, Feb. 14-21. Mayor Marion Barry made the
week official in Washington with a mayoral
The group's executive director, Mary Janney, said
in a statement that the purpose of National Condom
Week was to provide education about condoms' use in
preventing pregnancy and veneral disease, increase
men's involvment in family planning and "promote
more positive attitudes about condoms."

But conditions look acceptable for
Monday's scheduled touchdown, accor-
ding to David Novlan, the top missile
range forecaster.
The desert winds might not allow an
early New Mexico landing, however.
"If there were an emergency ... and
they were to have to land here today or
tomorrow, the winds would be
prohibitive," Novlan said yesterday.
IF COLUMBIA must come home, and
cannot land on. the wide-open, hard
sand Northrup Strip here, the shuttle
will be directed instead onto one of the
shorter, paved runways at Kennedy
Space Center in Florida or at Edwards
Air Force Base in California.
The shuttle was performing
smoothly, however, and only one
problem-with a radio chan-
nel-existed yesterday to suggest the
possibility of an early landing. The
radio system defied a quick fix yester-
day, but flight officials were confident
that Columbia would go the distance.
Desert winds can be unforgiving,
with winds whipping the gypsum sands
into a blinding fury. Such a storm began
here yesterday, but the storm should
leave the area by late Saturday and by
Sunday, "We look in pretty good
shape," said Novlan.
"AT THIS time," he said, "early lan-
ding times look pretty good for Monday.
After 10 a.m. or so, tentatively, it may
be good to marginal." Columbia is due
to land at about 12:27p.m. MST.
