DeLorean tries to raise
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Lawyers for
flamboyant automaker John Z.
DeLorean tried yesterday to raise the
$500,000 in property and cash needed to
bail him out of jail on cocaine traf-

hour, but I can't say that," attorney
Bernard Minsky said. "I just don't

DeLorean home in San Diego County,
on the market for $4 million, would be
offered as part of the collateral to in-
sure a $5 million bond for the
Asked whether a combination of cash
and property would be used to make
bail, Minsky said, "That's the only way
it can be put together."
De Lorean, once General Motors
Corp's boy wonder who left to "show
them how to build cars," was depicted
by federal prosecutors as a desperate
man who turned to drug trafficking
when his multimillion-dollar DeLdrean
Motor Co. was n the brink of bankrup-
tcy. The company's Northern Ireland
assembly plant was ordered closed by
the British government only hours
before his arrest.
THE COMPANY went broke when
the recession bit into sales and rows of
unsold, $25,000 gull-wing cars piled up.
The last 35 workers at the plant were
due to join ex-colleagues on the unem-
ployment lines within days.
DeLorean was arraigned Wednesday
on charges of conspiring to possess 220
pounds of cocaine for distribution.
Minsky said DeLorean would plead in-

government's evidence," said Minsky.

ASSISTANT U.S. Attorney James
Walsh disclosed at DeLorean's
arraignment that the auto executive
was videotaped at a meeting with un-
dercover agents and discussed his
alleged plan to generate $60 million by
selling heroin and cocaine.
Walsh said the videotapes, made in a
hotel room just before DeLorean's
arrest, show him cradling a bundle of
South American cocaine he thought
would save his failing car company and
murmuring, "This is better than gold.
This came just in the nick of time."
In Britain lawmakers yesterday ac-
cused two British governments of
negligence for pouring $131 million into

Despite the aid, the plant went
into receivership in February
and was ordered closed
Monday when DeLorean failed to
produce the money needed to bail it out.

Victor Weisskopf, one of the builders
of the first atomic bomb, pushed for
nuclear disarmament last night before
a crowd of 150 students at the Residen-
Weisskopf, a professor emeritus at
the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, said he believed the best
way toward nuclear disarmament
revolved around a six step plan put
,orth by the Political Academy of
THAT PLAN, Weisskopf said, in-
cludes the following: the return of the
nuclear debate to a moral and ethical
level; rejection of the notion that a
limited nuclear war is survivable or
winnable; the creation of a public con-
stituency against the development and
testing of new nuclear weapons; a
mutual freeze on weapons as the first
step toward arms reduction;
negotiations toward a reduction in all
nuclear weapons; and a pledge to never
be the first to use nuclear weapons.
Weisskopf blamed the arms race on
psychological bullying between the two
superpowers. The Soviet Union has
always been bullied by the United
States, but now that nuclear power is
more balanced, Soviet strength is
"frightening," he said.
Although the Soviets are catching up
to the United States in the arms race,
our arsenal is in no way inferior to that
of the Russians, he said. Reagan's
statements on inferiority are not true,
"You only need about 2000 bombs to
destroy them. Together, we have
He said President Reagan's and
Secretary of Defense Caspar Wein-
berger's outrageous statements on
nuclear war have helped boost the
popularity of the freeze movement.
