Va. draft
fighter gets
ROANOKE, Va. (UPI)- A federal
judge yesterday ordered a two-year
term of alternative service for Enten
Eller, son of a Brethren minister and
the first man to be convicted in the
crackdown on men who failed to
register for the peacetime draft.
Judge James Turk said Eller could
serve his term at the Veterans Ad-
ministration Medical Center in Salem
or at another federal facility approved
by his probation officer and the court.
WHEN ELLER was convicted in
August, Turk ordered him to register
with the selective service system within
90 days or face sentencing of up to six
years in prison.
Although federal prosecutors had
asked that Eller receive a prison sen-
tence as a deterrent to other draft
resisters, Turk told Eller "because you
are in the formative years of your life
and because you have an exemplary
record otherwise, the court is con-
sidering alternative service in your
Eller, 20, a physics major with a
straight-A average at Bridgewater
College, had said he would rather go to
prison than violate his religious beliefs,
IN EXPLAINING his decision, Eller
earlier had said, "I have not registered
simply because the U.S. Government
has asked me to do something that God
would not have me do. Christ's way, the
way of love, the way of concern for all
people, the way of nonviolent peace
cannot be reconciled to involvement
with the military which uses killing and
destruction, or the threat of such, to
achieve its ends."
Eller's conviction Aug. 16 was the fir-
st since former President Jimmy Car-
ter revived draft registration in 1980.
Turk ordered Eller :to perform 250
hours of community service and told
him to register within 90 days or face a
prison term of up to six years.
Eller performed the community ser-
vice, but steadfastly refused to

Squads comb Beirut
for unexploded bombs

BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) -
American-led bomb squads combing
the war-torn Lebanese capital have
found 250 different kinds of explosives
from 17 countries so far, a U.S. expert
said yesterday.
"That's an indication, not a total,"
said Navy Lt. Cmdr. John Hoyden,
head of a 13-man team training the
Lebanese army in explosives disposal.
"WE CAN surface clean, picking up
what we can see, within the next year.
But when they clear all the rubble, they
are going to be finding ordnance for at
least 10 years," said Boyden, who is
from Virginia Beach, Va.
A list of dud and unexploded bombs
and shells found in six weeks of work by
40-50 Lebanese soldiers led by Boyden's
men includes more than 200 U.S.-made
bomblets from cluster bombs, which
Israeli forces were accused of using;
more than a dozen dud bombs ranging

from 500 to 2,000 pounds, and hundreds
of mines and grenades.
MUCH OF THE weaponry was stored
by the Palestine Liberation
Organization, which got most of its ar-
ms from Communist and Arab gover-
nments and on the international
market, and by the Syrian army before
the June 6 Israeli invasion. It ranges
from the most modern weapons to
World War II grenades and mines.
"We have found about 80 types we've
never seen before," Boyden said. "It
came from Yugoslavia, West Germany,
Spain, Portugal, Czechoslovakia, North
Korea, all over the world."
Some 3 percent to 5 percent of thej
tens of thousands of shells and bombs
hurled into the city by the Israelis failed
to go off and are highly dangerous, he
"We found five bombs in an or-
phanage, with about 45 cluster bombs in
the front yard.

despite U.S.
Force officer trained 17 Guatemalan
military pilots last summer despite the
5-year-old ban on American military
aid to the Central American country.
A Defense Department statement,
issued in response to a question about
the training, said Lt. Col. benjamin
Castro "on his own time lectured
Guatemalan student pilots on in-
strument flying and safety" while he
was attached to the U.S. Embassy in
Guatemala City.
THE PENTAGON said the lectures
did not violate U.S. policy against aid to
Guatemala's military, which has been
accused by human rights groups of
masacring thousands of Indian peasan-
ts in its war against leftist guerrillas.
Guatemala's government has denied
the massacre accusations.
"It has long been considered a
responsibility of all qualified U.S. pilots
- civil and miltary - to assist host-

. aid ban
nation aviators in understanding and
complying with international safety
procedures," the Pentagon said.
But congressional critics said the lec-
tures may have violated a ban on
security assistance, including military
training, to countries which are "gross
and consistent" violators of human

MOSCOW (AP) - Heads aren't exac-
tly rolling, but there are clear signs that
Yuri Andropov, the new Soviet Com-
munist Party chief, wasn't bluffing
when he promised to shake things up.
For years, former Soviet leader
Leonid Brezhnev complained bitterly
that things didn't work, often
castigating his ministers and top of-
ficials publicly. Rarely did he follow up
with dismissals.
BREZHNEV died Nov. 10 after 18
years in power. In the weeks since An-
dropov succeeded him, there have been
several major changes in the gover-
nment, the lastest of which came
yesterday when Tass announced that
minister of Rural Construction Stepan
Khitrov was replaced by Viktor
Danilenko, one of six deputy ministers.
The only major change in the ruling
hierarchy was the elevation of Geidar
Aliev, 59, from non-voting to full mem-
bership in the ruling Politburo. He had
been party chief in Axerbaijan and his
career had been focused on security work
in the KGB, which Andropov headed for
15 years.
But many Western diplomats and
Soviet sources said the Aliev promotion
had been decided before Brezhnev's
death and was not directly ordered by
LAST MONTH, in his first major
speech as party chief, Andropov said,
"Apparently the strength of inertia and
adherence to old ways are still at work.
Moreover, some people, perhaps, just
do not know how to set about doing the
Since then, the railway minister has
been fired, the chief of the Young
Communist League has been promoted
to head the state publishing committee,
and the man who held that key job has
been named as head of the Central

Committee's propaganda department.
For 12 years, Boris Stukalin was the
chairman of the State Committee of
Publishing Houses, Printing Plants and
Book Trade - dictating what books
could be published in the Soviet Union

ON MONDAY, he, was replaced by
Boris Pastukhov, 49, who led the 38-
million-member Communist Youth
League, Komsomol, for five years.
Stukalin, 59, was promoted to the post
of chief of the Central Committee
propaganda department, replacing
Yevgeny Tyazhelnikov.
There was no official announcement
of Stukalin's promotin, but Tuesday
night he was identified by his new title
in a television report on a celebration
devoted to the forthcoming 60th an-
niversary of the Soviet Union.
THE SOURCES said Tyazhelnikov
was being demoted and would be sent to
Romania as ambassador to replace
Vasily Drozdenko who died Nov. 3.

A Wallet stolen in W. Quad
A West Quad resident entered her
room at 6:30 p.m. Monday evening and
found a 6-foot 3-inch male burglarizing
her room, police said yesterday. The
woman had left her room unlocked
when she went to visit a friend, accor-
ding to police, and when she returned
the man fled, taking her wallet con-
taining about $25. Police said they have
no suspects.
Detroit teen held for Ann
Arbor purse-snatching
A 14-year-old Detroit male is being
held by police for allegedly stealing a
purse at 7:40 p.m. Monday evening
from a woman on the 2500 block of
Packard Road. Police said the victim, a
29-year-old Ann Arbor woman, and her
three-year-old son had just left the
Apex drug store in Georgetown Mall
when the suspect attacked her. He
allegedly sneaked up behind the
woman, according to police, knocked
her son to the ground, and took her pur-
se. The suspect was apprehended later
in the area, they said, and the woman's
purse was recovered.
