FBI snares computer,

DETROIT - The FBI said yesterday it seized
computer equipment from a teenage Detroit com-
puter whiz who may have been involved in a six-state
ring that illegally tapped into computer systmes.
Detroit FBI Special Agent John Anthony confirmed
yesterday that agents conducted a raid on a northeast
Detroit home Wednesday morning and seized a per-
sonal computer, telephone hook-ups and data storage
FBI sources indicated the home-computer network
stole or damaged $1 million worth of computer data,
The youngsters were apparently part of a network
that swapped illegal passwords and codes to obtain
access to corporate computers.
Similar raids were reportedly conducted in
Arizona, New York, Oklahoma, "irginia, and
Wayne Correia a California high .,nool student,
said an agent climbed through his bedroom window
after failing to get a response at the door and said,
"FBI, and at computer's mine."
Correia and another youth said the trouble ap-
parently stems from their unknowing use of a
Virginia-based network which charges computer,
users to send messages.

Protestors attempt blockade of
U.S. army base in W. Germany
BREMERHAVEN, West Germany - Riot police used water cannons yesterday
to disperse thousands of anti-American demonstrators who tried to blockade a U.S.
Army supply depot to protest deployment of new U.S. nuclear missiles in West Ger-
The class opened a loday camign of civil disobedience, rallies, marches,
demonstrations and blockaded to halt the introduction by the North Atlantic Treaty
Organization of U.S. cruise and Pershing-2 medium range missiles. They are
scheduled to be deployed at the end of this year if no agreement is reached in the
Soviet-U.S. nuclear arms talks in Geneva.
The protesters were carted away from the Carl Schurz Barracks and adjoining
Midgard Harbor, where U.S. ammunition and supplies are unloaded. The protesters
went limp in a display of passive resistance, while other demonstrators shouted,
"Let them go!" and chanted, "We don't want your weapons."
Five thousand police dispersed the demonstors to keep roads open to the vital
North Sea harbor at Bremerhaven and the headquarters of the U.S. Army's Seat Lift
Command, one of the largest American supply depots in Western Europe.
EPA abandons ban on pesticide
WASHINGTON- The Environmental Protection Agency yesterday
abandoned efforts to outlaw most uses of lindane, a cancer-causing
chemical and one of the most popular pesticides.
Under the Carter administration, the agency had proposed in 1980 to can-
cel all but a few minor uses of lindane because laboratory tests with animals
show it caused cancer, birth defects and acute toxicity to aquatic wildlife.
However, in the final ruling yesterday the agency said it was banning use
of lindane only in smoke fumigation devices and as a dip to control pests on
Currently, lindane is one of the most popular pesticides used. The EPA
estimated in 1980 that 126 million Americans are exposed to the compound
each year. There are 557 products registered for use containing lindane.
Lindane is used in homes and gardens to control insects and fight termites
and on farms to treat seeds in storage and fight insects on fruit and
vegetable crops and on livestock.
Kisiner meets Guatemnalan chief
GUATEMALA CITY - After Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger discussed
prospects for improvements in U.S. relations with Guatemala at a closed meeting
yesterday with Guatemala's chief of state, Gen. Oscar Humberto Mejia Victores.
Heavily armed soldiers patrolled the streets of the capital and ringed the National
Palace where the 25-minute meeting took place. A second meeting followed between
government leaders and Kissinger's commission on Central America.
The commission, set up by President Reagan, is on a six-dy tour of Central
America to formulate long-term U.S. policy and Guatemala is its fourth stop. The
Kissinger commission is scheduled to turn in a report to the White House Jan.10.
Following his talks with the Guatemalan chief of state, Kissinger told reporters he
and Mejia Victores "talked about the desirability of cooperation between Guatemala
and the United States," but gave no details.
They've told us their problems and we've discussed them," Kissinger said. But he
added that Guatemala had made no specific request for military or economic aid.
Mejia Victores told a news conference Tuesday night he would ask Kissinger for a
restoration of military aid and an increase in economic assistance.
State agriculture director chosen
LANSING - The Commission of Agriculture yesterday picked Paul Kin-
dinger as the next state agriculture director agter rejecting Gov. James
Blanchard's candidate, former state Sen. John Hertel
Kindinger - a former assistant director of the'department who is well
known to the commissioners - was approved on a narrow 3-2 vote that
followed party lines.
The vote came shortly after the surprise, 3-2 rejection of Hertel, a Harper
Woods Democrat now serving as a Wayne County commissioner.
The votes appear to bring to an end, for now, a drama that began this
summer when Blanchard made clear his desire to have his own man in the
state's top farm job.
That action by Blanchard resulted in the resignation of holdover
Agriculture Director Dean Pridgeon. He will depart effective Nov. 1.
Kindinger, who is now associated with the Michigan State University
Cooperative Extension Service, was supported by the Michigan Agricultural
N.Y. Dems endorse Mondale
NEW YORK - Gov. Mario Cuomo and Sen. Daniel Moynihan of New York
leaders of the second biggest delegation to the Democratic National Conven-
tion, yesterday endorsed Walter Mondale's presidential candidacy.
"We have decided that of all the candidates, Walter Mondale will make the
best president," the state's two top Democrats said in a Joint statement.
Mondale appeared at the Manhattan news conference to accept the endor-
"I want to be a president who makes our nation a family again, who puts
us on the road to justice again, who takes up the fight for a safter, more
peaceful world," the former vice president said.
Cuomo said he was not seeking a place on the Mondale ticket as vice
president. He has also been mentioned as a possible keynote speaker at the
convention and a potential 1988 nominee.
Because New York Democrats-elect convention delegates in slates often
put together by the party organization, Cuomo and Moynihan could deliver a
sizeable percentage of the delegation to Mondale.

registration is absolute, idiotic, macho
Simon was referring to the initiation
of registration during President Jimmy
Carter's administration as a sign of
military strength to the Russians who
had just invaded Afghanistan.
The University officials took a less
political stance on the issue.
GROTRIAN said he finds the biggest
problemwith the amendment to be ad-
ding to the "200,000 pieces of paper
already processed (in the financial aid
office) for 23,000 students.
Grotrian also said that five Univer-
sity students have refused to sign the
form stating they have registered or
have a valid reason not to. One of the
non-signers is a woman.

Butts and Kahn both stated purely
legal arguments for the enforcement of
"THE LAW is on the books, and
people have a responsibility to obey
that law," Butts said.
"A valid law is in effect, and as long
as it is in effect it should be obeyed,"
Simon and Bullard both mentioned
Reagan's campaign stance against
registration and his reversal on the
issue after his election.
"When Reagan was a private citizen
he realized the draft registration
destroyed the values Americans were
committed to defend," Bullard said.
"And maybe if we urge Reagan to
become a private citizen again, he will
regain his moralistic view."

Reagan did not say who would
replace Clark, who joined the ad-
ministration as a novice in foreign af-
fairs and since has become Reagan's
chief adviser in the area.
Speculation focused on Robert Mc-
Farlane, Clark's deputy, as his suc-
cessor in the National Security job.
Clark, McFarlane and Secretary of
State George Shultz had lunch yester-
day at the State Department three
hours before the announcement.
McFarlane, a former Marine officer
and aide to the Senate ArmedServices
committee, has been in the Middle East
for the past month, helping to negotiate
a cease-fire in Lebanon.
