Castro
says CIA
developing
new plans
to kill him
NEW DELHIA, India (UPI) - Cuban
President Fidel Castro told the opening
session of the non-aligned summit
yesterday that President Reagan has
revived CIA attempts to assassinate
him.
Castro, who headed the organization
of so-called non-aligned nations since
1979, made his accusation in a two-hour-
long speech after handing the chair-
manship to India's Prime Minister In-
dira Gandhi.
He told the 101-nation conference the
United States was "the modern bar-
barian of our time" and blamed
Washington for everyting from world
economic ills to tension on the Korean
peninsula.
"EVEN WORSE,"Castro said, "We
have learned through trustworthy
sources that the new U.S. ad-
ministration has instructed the CIA to
resume plans to kill Cuban leaders,
especially its president."
Referring to CIA plans to kill him in
the early 1960s during the Kennedy ad-
ministration, Castro said: "Have not
other presidents made similar plans
and tried to carry them out on several
occasions."
In Waslington, State Department
spokesman John Hughes described
Castro's accusation as "obviously un-
true."
"WE DON'T disregard the law and
executive orders. The charge is ab-
surd. We absolutely deny it."
India has been applauded by
moderate nations like Egypt and
Yugoslavia for its efforts to return the
non-aligned movement to its original
principles, away from the pro-Soviet
stance adopted under Castro's chair-
manship.
Palestine Liberation Organization
chairman Yasser Afafat followed the
Cuban leader's remarks in a speech at-
tacking U.S. support of Israel.
ARAFAT SAID when the Israelis in-
vaded Lebanon, they "attacked with
weapons supplied by the. .. Pentagon
(and) used the bodies of our women and
children as guinea pigs."
He called September's massacre of
Palestinians in Beirut refugee camps
an 'attack which was planned by Israel
and . . . with the full knowledge of the
United States of America."

Civil Rights activist
wins suit against FBI

KALAMAZOO (UPI) - A federal
judge's ruling yesterday was a major
victory for a civil rights activist suing
the government for damages for in-
uries he allegedly received in a Ku
Klux Klan beating during a 1971
Freedom Ride in Alabama.
The ruling came in 84-year-old Walter
Bergman's $1 million lawsuit against
the FBI and the federal government..
BERGMAN, who ┬░was .severely
beaten during a freedom ride 22 years
ago, claimed in his suit the governmen-
4knew in advance of the attacks on civil
rights activists could have taken ac-
tion to prevent them.
F U.S. District Judge Richard Enslen
during the weekend ordered the gover-
nment to release suppressed civil rights
documents, but U.S. officials refused.
Enslen ruled yesterday the gover-
nment' s refusal to comply with his or-

Funeral services will be held today in
Jackson for Luren Kinsley, a former
Daily pressman who died Saturday at
age 77. He retired in December, 1971,
after more than 40 years as a Univer-
sity employee. Kinsley is survived by
six children, 12 grandchildren, and 6
great grandchildren.

makes it impossible forsBergman to
properly present his case in Enslen's
courtroom.
But before Bergman can press his
claim for the $1 million, Enslen said he
still must prove he was crippled as a
result of the injuries in Alabama and
also must prove his case - 'filed in
1977- was brought within the statute of
limitations.

suggested reduction of any of the three
schools that are under review. The
School of Natural Resources review
panel recommended a 30 percent cut,
although the central administration is
considering lower cuts. The School of
Art panel recommended a 10 to 15 per-
cent cut, but that was recently raised to
25 percent by the Budget Priorities
Committee.

The Budget Priorities Committee will
take severalweeks to decide whether to
accept or amend the education school
report, said vice-president and provost
Frye. He declined to comment on the
recommendations in the report.
The chairwoman of the budget
prioritieshcommittee, Mary AnnSwain,
also declined to comment until the
committee is finished considering the
report.
