Dems ageeo Owen as Speake r


LANSING (UPI)- Top Democrats yesterday
closed ranks behind Rep. Gary Owen-an Ypsilanti
lawmaker known for his brash style and behind-the-
scenes influence-as the next speaker of the state
Owen, in announcing the agreement during an in-
formal news conference, made clear that he looks
forward to working with the new Democratic gover-
nor, but intends to be his own man as a key leader of a
co-equal branch of government.
UNDER THE plan, Owen will support his two chief
rivals-Democratic Floor Leader Joseph Forbes of
Oak Park and Speaker Pro Tem Matthew McNeely of
Detroit-for re-election to their current positions.
They in turn will support him for speaker at
tomorrow's caucus of the House's ruling Democrats.
The 38-year-old Owen insisted there were no "in-
ternal commitments" made in terms of committee
assignments or other favors, except for a pledge that

he will not retaliate against those who did not back
him for speaker.
Forbes, a 66-year-old veteran of 12 years in the
House and Owen's last serious rival, said he dropped
out because he did not have enough committed votes
and because party unity "is the paramount and most
important thing."
OWEN WILL replace retiring House Speaker Bob-
by Crim who has been one of the most powerful
figures in state government since he was first elected
to the post in 1975.
Many have credited Owen's rather rapid rise to
power and influence in the Legislature to Crim's
patronage and support, but the Ypsilanti lawmaker
and his rivals insisted the incumbent speaker stayed
strictly neutral in their contest.
The three-way fight for the speakership was
believed to be the first such contest since 1966 and
some feared it might create divisions within the

Democratic Party.
THE FRIENDLY, low-key nature of the news con-
ference and Forbes' agreement to stay on as floor
leader, reversing an earlier decision, seemed to put
such concerns to rest.
Forbes, an Oak Park Democrat who is close per-
sonally to Gov.-elect James Blanchard, said the need
to support the new Democratic governor and the
"importance of keeping unity within the caucus"
were the key factors persuading him to stay on as one
of Owen's chief lieutenants.
Owen has served in the House since 1972 and
currently holds the title associate speaker pro tem.
His power and influence, however, derive from his
seat on the House Appropriations Committee-a spot
Crim gave him at an unusually early stage of his
legislative career.

Rose Sir, a coordinator for the Herb
and Spice Shop, said she expects the
move will attract more business.
People who usually shop only for food
and produce may begin to buy at the
spice shop which often goes unnoticed
at its Ann Street location, she said.
ROGER MARCUS, a coordinator at
the Produce Co-op, said he also expects
storefront sales to double.
Before the stores can move into the
building, however, extensive
renovations must be made, according
to Curtis. These include repairing the
buildings' plumbing, wiring, and
heating systems, and replacing a leaky
roof, he said.
Curtis said hiring professionals to do
the repairs would cost about $80,000, but
the co-ops hope to vastly reduce the cost
by recruiting volunteers to help out.

THE CO-OP coordinators readily
agree raising the money won't be easy.
To help raise funds, customers at the
PFC have been asked to contribute an
additional two to four percent sales tax
and to make any other loans or
donations possible, Curtis said.
In addition, he said, plans are under-
way to contract a professional fund-
raiser to help raise money outside the
co-op community.
Jacobson described customer sup-
port as "overwhelming," citing results
of random PFC surveys which showed
95 percent of the co-op members were
in favor of the move.
Volunteer help, however, has been
slow coming in. But, the coordinators
are counting on the "social exchange"
of the co-ops to attract new volunteers,
Jacobson added.

Salvadorans ordered to stand
trial for murder of nuns
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador- A criminal court judge yesterday or-
dered five national guardsmen to stand trial in the murder of four American
Roman Catholic churchwomen nearly two years ago.
Judge Bernardo Rauda Murcia, who conducted the nine-month equivalent
of a grand jury probe, ruled there is enough evidence for a trial against the
guardsmen. Details of the indictment have not been made public yet.
"It means the judge has found enough evidence against the prisoners," the
judge's secretary Jose Anibal Jimenez said. "He wouldn't take this step
unless he had enough to hang them."
The case has added significance because of demands by the Reagan ad-
ministration that this and other cases of alleged government brutality be
stopped as a condition for continued U.S. aid.
The three nuns and a lay worker, who had been working with Salvadoran
peasants, were detained and shot dead by a national guard patrol 30 miles
outside the capital Dec. 4, 1980. Some showed signs of rape.
Reagan administration steps up
attacks on school busing
WASHINGTON- The Reagan administration stepped up its attacks on
forced busing yesterday, urging the Supreme Court to consider restricting
racial desegregation efforts in Nashville, Tenn.
For the first time, the administration went to the nation's highest court
with its objections to a current busing plan.
For nearly two years, President Reagan and his aides have limited their
campaign against existing busing plans to public statements and litigation
at the lower court level.
Justice Department lawyers told the high court yesterday thata federal
appeals panel went too far in refusing to allow less busing and more racial
imbalances in Nashville public schools.
The city's school board is seeking Supreme Court help after the appeals
court agreed with some black parents that the proposed changes would "re
segregate" many schools.
Walesa renews allegiance
to independent labor party
GDANSK, Poland-Lech Walesa renewed his allegiance to the indepen-
dent labor movement yesterday but took a cautious line toward the martial-
law government and urged his supporters to confine themselves to peaceful
He also said he needed at least a month toget acquainted with the situation
in Poland and decide his course of action.
"I was, I am and I will be faithful to the spirit of August," said Walesa,
referring to the August 1980 agreement that launched the Solidarity labor
"I will not depart from the letter of that agreement," he told his first news
conference since his release after 11 months of detention. But he added, in a
vein reminiscent of his moderating influence on the union before his arrest,
"As you know, I never wanted to destroy or knock anything out. I am for
peaceful solutions."
Brezhnev buried in Red Square
WASHINGTON- As Leonid Brezhnev was buried in Red Square,
President Reagan said yesterday the United States and its western allies
must stand together against a "massive war machine" built by the Soviet
Welcoming West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl to the White House,
Reagan made no mention of the Soviet president's funeral and did not soften
his criticism of the Kremlin's military policies.
In a joint statement after their two-hour meeting, Kohl expressed ap
preciation that Reagan lifted the Soviet pipeline sanctions that had caused
deep strains in U.S. relations with European allies.
A senior U.S. official, briefing reporters afterward, did not directly
respond when asked if the two leaders discussed France's disavowal of an
East-West trade accord that Reagan said made it possible for him to drop
the sanctions.
Expressing hopes for improved relations with the Soviets, Reagan and
Kohl said they were "ready to conduct relations with the new leadership in
Moscow with the aim of extending areas of cooperation to their mutual
benefit if Soviet conduct makes that possible."
Agent lured by $22 million
ALEXANDRIA, Va.- Ex-CIA agent Edwin Wilson "was motivated by
greed," namely the lure of a $22 million contract, when he illegally shipped
weapons to Libyan officials in 1979, a federal prosecutor said yesterday.
In his opening statement at Wilson's trial, Assistant U.S. Attorney
Theodore Greenberg said, "Wilson wanted that contract, Wilson got that
contract and Wilson wanted other contracts."
Wilson's chief attorney, Herald Price Fahringer, portrayed the defendant
as motivated solely by "the idea and the ambition to collect intelligence (for
the United States) while we was in Libya."
According to Fahringer, "during the entire period of time he was sending
back vital intelligence on Libya's intelligence operations and its associations
with the Russians and critical information on military equipment."
Fahringer said Wilson sent the information to then-active CIA clandestine
services officer Theodore Shackley and Thomas Clines and to Air Force
Major Gen. Richard Secord, who, he said, was interested in information

about Soviet aircraft that the Libyans had.
