HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Mystery
professor Paul Crafton, the man with 34
identities and nearly 70 charge cards,
patented seven inventions, including a
device to verify credit card users, the
U.S. Patent Office said yesterday.
Crafton, described by prosecutors as
"a man of many, many, many iden-
tities," obtained a patent for a device
called a "personal authority
verification system" on Oct. 12, 1976,
said a patent office spokesman.
The system assigns a different code
name to each account, thus restricting
use of a computer to credit card users
aware of the code, said the spokesman,
who did not want to be identified.
Bank cards usually operate with a
b, . code that must be stated before a com-
puter will make any transaction, thus
guarding against the use of stolen car-
It is not known whether Crafton's
machine was actually marketed, said
Patrick Boyle, a spokesman for state
Attorney General LeRoy Zimmerman.
According to the patent office, the
patent for the credit machine was
assigned to Century International Corp.
of Rockville, Md. The company was
AP Photo dissolved in 1978, and a succeeding
company dissolved in 1979, according to
the Maryland Department of
Assessments and Taxation. Crafton

Colombia digs out after quake
POPAYAN, Colombia - Army helicopters ferried in tents, food and other
emergency supplies yesterday and evacuated seriously injured victims of
the Holy Thursday earthquake that killed more than 20 people and
devastated this Andean provincial capital.
An emergency committee headed by provincial Gov. Amalia de Salazar
said 194 bodies had been identified by yesterday afternoon, 179 in Popayan
and 15 in surrounding towns. Rescuers said there were at least 40 more
bodies that had not been identified, and searched through tons of rubble for
Five thousand morners, some weeping uncontrollably and others quietly
sobbing, buried their loved ones in a ceremony at a local cemetery attended
by President Belisario Bentancur. Some relatives fainted with shock.
Most of the dead were elderly people, babies and teen-agers caught
unaware when the quake struck Thursday morning.
Dioxin overblown, official says
EAST LANSING - The chief of the state's toxic substances watchdog
agency said yesterday dioxin is "not an emergency" and suggested the
problem has been blown out of proportion.
Larry Holcomb, executive director of the Toxic Substance Control Com-
mission, appearing on the weekly public television program "Off the
Record," also suggested that environmental officials rejected recommen-
dations to fund a dioxin study because it was not a priority.
Holcomb was critical of the state Natural Resources and Public Health
departments for being "a little slow" in reacting to potential dioxin con-
Michigan State University researchers have found dioxin in fish in several
Michigan rivers and state and federal investigators have suggested that
Dow Chemical Co., based in Midland, could be a major source.
Vietnamese invade Thailand
BANGKOK, Thailand - The-Foreign Ministry said about 50 Vietnamese
soldiers thrust across the Cambodian border into Thailand twice yesterday
but were driven back by Thai troops.
The report could not be independently confirmed because reporters were
barred from the battle zone, and observers expressed skepticism that an in-
vasion had taken place.
The ministry said fighting was continuing and that the Vietnamese had
killed at least 200 Cambodian refugees, wounded hundreds more and driven
30,000 across the frontier since overrunning the Khmer Rouge guerrilla"
camp at Phnom Chat on Thursday.
It alleged that yesterday morning about 500 Vietnamese troops made an
incursion 1.2 miles deep into Thai territory near the village of Nong Samet,
eight miles south of Phnom Chat, and were driven back by Thai forces. It
said a second incursion, a half-mile deep, took place at Phnom Chat and that
five Thai troops were wounded.
Feminist extradited to Louisiana
to face murder charges
LOS ANGELES - A judge yesterday upheld feminist leader Ginny Foat's
extradition to Louisiana, where she is charged in a 17-year-old murder case.
But Superior Court Judge Ronald George stayed her return to Louisiana
for 10 days to permit her to appeal the ruling. Foat is on leave from the
presidency of the California chapter of the National Organization for
Defense attorney Michael Nasatir said the ruling would be appealed. An
appeal must be filed by April 8; the stay expires April 11
The challenge brought by Foat's attorneys contended that the 17-yearold
arrest warrant was invalid because it had been served on her twice
previously in Nevada in 1977, when she was released by a district court
Foat, 41, has been jailed since her arrest on Jan. 11 as a result of
allegations by her former husband, John Sidote. He implicated her in the
1965 robbery and slaying of Argentine businessman Moises Chavo.
Reagan softens stand on
sale of weapons to Israel
WASHINGTON - Administration spokesmen backed off somewhat
yesterday from President Reagan's assertion that he is legally barred from
delivering 75 new F-16 warplanes to Israel, but made clear the sale won't
proceed "while the Israeli forces remain in Lebanon."
In Tel Aviv, Israeli officials were said to be infuriated by Reagan's
decision to block the $2.7 billion sale. And U.S. sources said the Israeli Air
Force has decided to upgrade its older American F-4 jets, at a cost of $900
million, in light of uncertainty over the F-16 deal.
Even if the F-16 deal came off on schedule, the planes wouldn't reach
Israel until 1985. State Department deputy spokesman Alan Romberg said
he couldn't speculate on whether Reagan's decision would necessarily
preclude that timetable from being kept in the end.
Deputy White House Press Secretary Larry Speakes reiterated in Santa
Barbara, Calif. that the United States has no intention of permitting the
warplane delivery until the Israelis leave Lebanon.

"IT'S ALMOST 18 years ago to the day, we woke up
to a nightmare," Liuzzo's son Tony said after yester-
day's court session.
"The tragic death of Mrs. Viola Liuzzo is just that:
tragic," government attorney Ann Robertson said in
her closing statement. But she maintained that the
United States government "is in no way responsible for
Robertson said that Collie Leroy Wilkins, one of the
three Klansmen in the car with Rowe, fired the shots
that killed Liuzzo. "Collie Leroy Wilkins represents the
kind of lunacy that the Ku Klux Klan, the Kluckers,
represented," she said.
WILKINS TOLD the court in his videotaped
testimony last week that Rowe shot Liuzzo. But Rober-
tson discredited this claim saying that Wilkins had
"(Wilkins) is a murderer. . . a liar," she said.
She also labeled as a liar former Klansman Eugene
Thomas, who confirmed Wilkins' report of the incident
in his testimony. "Eugene Thomas came before this
court, and lied before the court," Robertson said.
SHE SAID that Rowe was "in the car doing what he
was supposed to do," and added that he did not en-
courage the three Klansmen to murder Liuzzo. "They
would have done it without the presence of Gary,"
While attorneys for the Liuzzos charge that the
government was negligent in hiring Rowe when FBI
officials knew Rowe had violent tendencies, Rober-
tson argued that the government was not negligent.
"Gary Thomas Rowe did not have the conspiratorial
intent that the other three people did," Robertson said.
IN HIS closing arguments, Robb said that the FBI's
integrity is not an issue in this case, but held that Rowe
acted in concert with the Klansmen the night Liuzzo
Judge Charles Joiner, who heard the case without a

NEW YORK (AP) - "The Thorn
Birds" bumped "The Winds of War" as
the second most popular miniseries
ever shown on network television, ac-
cording to A.C. Nielsen Co. ratings
released yesterday by ABC.
"Roots," which was shown in 1977,
remained in first place. All three
programs were shown on ABC, which
claims seven of the top 10 all-time
"The Thorn Birds," a four-part, 10-
hour adaptation of Colleen Mc-
Cullough's novel of love, money and
religion in three generations of an
Australian family, was watched in 41.9
percent of all Amercian households
with television sets and on 59 percent of
the sets actually turned on. The con-
cluding episode Wednesday night got a
rating of 43.1 and a 62 share.
ABC estimated that 110 million
people saw some part of "The Thorn
Birds" and that, on average, 34.9
million viewers were tuned in each
"The Winds ofWar," shown in
February, had a 38.6 rating and 53
share for its seven-part, 18-hour run.
"Roots," which ran 12 hours over
eight nights; had 45 percent and a 66
share. Its total audience was put at 135
ABC had planned to show "The Thorn
Birds" in May, but moved it up to Mar-
ch so that it would count in the ratings
for the 1982-83 season.
With only three weeks left to the
season, however, ABC seems destined
to end up second in over-all prime time"
ratings to CBS, which has what appears
to be an insurmountable 0.5 percent
