Walesa's wife, parish priest and friends
vigorously defended him yesterday
against allegations that the martial law
regime had tapes and photos showing
him in "sexually compromising

not surprised by the accusation and

A spokesman for the Solidarity chief
said that Walesa had anticipated the
allegations. "He has taken into account
the possibility of an imminent attack
over many months when charges were
leveled against union activists."
Solidarity, the first independent
union in the Soviet bloc, was founded in
Gdansk in August 1980, suspended when
martial law was imposed last Dec. 13
and outlawed Oct. 8.
NBC-TV's "Nightly News" reported
Thursday that security agents had
shown pictures and tape recordings of
Walesa in "sexually compromising
situations" to church officials, along
with documents contending financial
THE MATERIALS, the report said,
dated from before the imposition of
martial law and may have been aimed
at discrediting Walesa if he sought to
assume a public role after being freed

A spokesman for the Interior
Ministry, asked about the NBC report,
said it was made up. "I know nothing of
such plans," he said.

Despite the inaccuracy of last year's

University students, according to Ron
Glassman, one of the students. The

for Jewish Survival."
Michael Drissman, another member
of Jewish Idea, said UAC's cancellation
of the lecture was nothing new to
Kahane. "He is, of course, controver-
sial;" Drissman said.
Kahane has been barred from en-
tering both Canada and Great Britain
on speaking engagements within the
past year, Drissman said. Kahane is
now in a legal battle with the Southfield
Civic Center, which, like UAC, has
decided to dis-invite Kahane from
speaking, according to Drissman.
MOST OF the groups that have op-
posed Kahane's speaking engagements
have been "liberal-type Jews,"
Drissman said. It was Steve Belkin of
the Union of Students for Israel and
Michael Brooks, director of Hillel who
informed UAC's executive committee
of Kahane's radical views.
Both explained that they didn't object
to Kahane's right to speak, but thought

Lending rate lowered to 9%
WASHINGTON- The Federal Reserve Board said yesterday it is
lowering its own lending rate to banks from 9.5 percent to 9 percent, the
lowest in four years. The move could prompt new declines in commercial in-
The cut in the "discount" rate that the nation's central back charges
commercial banks and other financial institutions is the first since early Oc-
tober and sixth since mid-July, when the rate stood at 12 percent. Each of the
cuts has been by one-half percentage point.
The latest action, approved 6-0 with one member absent, takes effect Mon-
day. It brings the key lending rate to its lowest point since Nov. 1, 1978, when
it was raised from 81%2 percent to 912 percent.
The decline in the discount rate since the summer parallels similar drops
in both short-term and long-term interest rates. The central bank said it is
lowering its rates in response to declines in market rates, but many
economists contend just the opposite: that the Fed is moving aggressively to
force market rates down.
Birth control researcher dies
SEATTLE- Dr. Carl Heller, who helped develop the birth control pill, is
dead at age 68 after years of illness.
Heller, who died at his home near Poulsho last Friday, had been bedridden
since he suffered a stroke 11 years ago.
Heller and two other researchers spent more than 10 years working on the
contraceptive pill which was approved by the Food and Drug Administration
Heller gained recognition in 1939 and 1940 for research into the cause of
menopause, and for outlining treatment to alleviate the symptoms. He also
helped define the field of endocrinology, and did research on giantism and
dwarfism in humans.
Heller also devised methods to measure hormones in urine, helped develop
a system using radioactivity to measure the time it takes sperm cells to
mature, and developed a male birth control pill. The latter was not marketed
because of serious side effects, including heart irregularity.
PITTSBURGH- The United Steelworkers union yesterday rejected a
concessions contract slashing wages but boosting jobless benefits-the
second time this year the depressed industry has failed to win the cuts it says
are needed for survival.
The USW's bargaining policy body, the 600-member Basic Steel Industry
Conference, voted 231-141 to reject a 45-month contract calling for pay cuts
averaging $1.50 an hour-about 10 percent of the basic industry wage.
The plan also called for a 75-cent-an-hour deduction to aid laid-off workers
and would have tied future cost-of-living increases to restored profitability
among steelmakers weathering their worst slump since the Depression.
Not far from union headquarters, in Midland, Pennsylvania, the USW also
distributed four thousand Thanksgiving turkeys to union members who lost
their jobs when their plant closed last month.
The turkeys were purchased with $37,000 donated by the local. The money
was accumulated when the workers gave up two cost-of-living raises totaling
12 cents an hour. The money was set aside as a possible contract concession
to the company, but it was never used.
King wins palimony suit
LOS ANGELES- A judge Friday threw out a palimony suit filed against
Billy Jean King by her lesbian former lover who claimed the tennis star
promised to support her for life.
In the first phase of the sensational suit last year, Marilyn Barnett, a for-
mer hairdresser who became a traveling companion and secretary to Mrs.
King, said she was evicted from the beach house they once shared.
Shortly after the suit was filed, Mrs. King publicly admitted she and Miss
Barnett had a lesbian relationship.
Miss Barnett claimed in her suit filed in April 1981 that Mrs. King had
promised to give her the Malibu beach house owned by the Kings and
Superior Court Judge Sarah Radin ruled yesterday that Miss Barnett had
no case against Mrs. King and her husband, sports entrepreneur Larry King.
The only issue still pending in the case is an injunction prohibiting Miss
Barnett from releasing about 100 love letters written by Mrs. King during,
their affair. Attorney Dennis Wasser said the Kings plan no action concer-
ning the letters beyond the injunction.
Iraqis disillusionedwith war
Western and Asian diplomats say most Iraqis, including.the senior gover-
nment leadership, are tired of the war-which began in September 1980
when Iraqi troops attacked across the disputed Shatt-al-Arab waterway.
Last June, Iraq's Revolutionary Command Council announced that Iraqi
troops had left Iranian territory and were ready to end the conflict. But
Iranian leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini vowed to continue the struggle
until Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and his Arab Baath Socialist Party
Western diplomats feel the war will drag on until Iran decides it is ready to
allow mediation of a settlement.
"People are tired of the war from the top down," said one senior diplomat,
who asked not to be identified. "Every family has someone either at the
front, or dead or wounded."
It is in this sense of personal loss and sacrifice that the average Iraqi has
felt the war most acutely.
Although reliable casualty figures are hard to come by, foreign diplomats
estimate Iraq has lost between 30,000 and 60,000 dead and 50,000 captured.

it was inappropriate for UAC to provide
a forum for Kahane.
The last time Kahane appeared on
campus was in 1980, when he spoke for
the same group who barred him this
year, UAC's Viewpoint Lectures. That
engagement sparked a mild protest,
but Glassman said he expected no
protests this time. "We hope people do

sell bottled beverages, and most High
Street bars have complied.
"This year we're not going to sell bot-
tles to go," said Noseworthy. "They've
caused problems before, so we're
going to have all plastic cups."
Local carry-out establishments,
however, have proved more of a
problem for law enforcement officials.
"I assume we're going to sell bot-
