"There's no place for people to go. We

"People are afraid of anything that's

anger that's behind any negativeness
will only be increased by taking away
the only place we can go."

Agent Orange test found faulty
WASHINGTON - Plysical exams for Vietnam veterans who fear their ex-
posure to Agent Orange imperiled their health are often inadequate and per-
formed by government doctors who do not know what to look for,
congressional investigators said yesterday.
Moreover, the Veterans Administration computerized registry in which
examination results are stored is unreliable and should be scrapped, the
General Accounting Office said after a 2 -year study.
Veterans' addresses were not in the computer files, making it difficult to
find veterans for followup exams or treatment, the GAO said.
The agency found that many VA doctors are suspicious of the complaints
of veterans.
In six of 14 hospitals that GAO visited, the chief environmental physicians
- in charge of Agent Orange exams - "believed the program served only to
pacify veterans who were exploiting the Agent Orange issue for personal
gain," the report said.
Don't tell us how to run U.S.,
Shultz says to Canadians
OTTAWA- Secretary of State George Shultz told Canadians yesterday
that the United States won't tell them how to run their country and "don't
you try to tell us how to run ours."
At the same time, Shultz told Canadian reporters that the United States
would like Canada to beef up its armed forces and make sure its foreign in-
vestment rules are fair to American investors.
In an official working visit to the Canadian capital, Shultz made it clear
that the United States does not intend to mend frayed U.S.-Canadian
relations by ignoring its own national interests.
Shultz held private discussions with Canadian Prime Minister Pierre
Elliot Trudeau and External Affairs Minister Allan MacEachen. Canadian
officials said the talks focused on protectionist trends that have developed in
both nations.
The issues discussed included attempts in the U.S. Congress to protect
American interests against Canadian trucking, lumber and timber
operations, acid rain pollution and American investment in Canada, par-
ticularly in the energy field in which U.S. interests hold a 72 percent share.
Two Catholics killed in Belfast
BELFAST, Northern Ireland- Extremists bludgeoned a Roman Catholic
kidnap victim to death and gunned down another Catholic in the city of Ar-
magn yesterday in apparent retaliation for the kidnapping of a Protestant
Police said the mutilated body of Joseph Donegan, 48, father of seven, was
found slumped in a back alley in Belfast's Shankill Road district, a heartland
of Protestant militancy. The killers used a knife and blunt instrument to
damage Donegan's face beyond recognition, and a gold watch he was
wearing helped the family identify his body, the police said.
A short time later, Peter Corrigan, 47, a campaign worker for the Irish
Republican Army's legal Sinn Fein political wing, was shot to death as he
walked to a local welfare office in Armagh, near the border with the Irish
Republic. Corrigan had 11 children.
Police said they fear that Protestant militiaman Thomas Cochrane, 55 ab-
ducted three days ago by Provisional IRA guerrillas in the border county of
South Armagh, may have been killed.
"Our experience in cases like this is that if you haven't found your man
alive after three days, you find a body in a ditch somewhere," said a senior
police officer who requested anonymity.
Police said three men have been detained for questioning in the Donegan
kidnap-slaying. No details were immediately available.
Pope, archbishop discuss
church's role in Poland
VATICAN CITY- Pope John PaulII and Poland's Roman Catholic
primate began talks yesterday on the situation in Poland since the banning
of Solidarity and what their church should do about it.
It was the pontiff's first meeting with Archbishop Jozef Glemp since the
Communist military regime on Oct. 8 outlawed the independent labor
federation, which the church supported.
No details of the talks were available. But one of the chief problems facing
the church leaders is whether to support strikes and demonstrations called
by underground Solidarity leaders to sabotage the government's campaign
to replace their nationwide independent union with small local unions con-
trolled by the Communist Party.
Iran challenges Israel in U.N.
UNITED NATIONS- Iran yesterday challenged Israel's right to sit in the
U.N. General Assembly, and called for a vote to suspend the Jewish state.
The vote on withholding Israel's credentials is scheduled for today.
The United States, which has been lobbying intensively, threatened to pull
out of the Assembly and withhold $149.9 million it still owes on its 1982 U.N.
dues if Israel were ousted.
Meanwhile, in Jerusalem Defense Minister Ariel Sharon, in testimony to
the commission probing the Beirut massacre, took responsibility yesterday
for letting Lebanese Christian militiamen into the Palestinian refugee cam-

ps. He said Prime Minister Menachem Begin knew nothing about it.
Sharon said, "Our central concern was to save our soldiers' lives.
Moreover, there was a Cabinet decision reached June 15, 1982, which spoke
in a clear fashion, in my opinion the clearest fashion possible, of integrating
the Lebanese forces (Christian militiamen) into the fighting in Lebanon."
