'Watt honored in Forks,

Wash.

FORKS, Wash. (AP) - Hundreds of
supporters wearing "Watt Power" but-
tons lined the banner-festooned main
street of this logging community of
3,500 yesterday watching the high
school band parade by amid blaring
sirens for "James Watt Appreciation
Day."
Watt, who resigned as secretary of
the interior last Sunday, in a telegram
thanked the townspeople of Forks "for
having the courage to buck the Eastern
media tide and vote your support for
the jobs, national security and
economic recovery that Interior's
program can bring to America."
WATT WAS invited 'to attend the
celebration when it was planned
Profile is taking the week off. It
will return in next Sunday's Daily.

several months ago, but was unable to
attend because of conflicting schedules.
He was invited again after he announ-
ced his resignation, but sent the
telegram instead.
"Leilani (his wife) and I sincerely
appreciate your support and courage.
It has never been more comforting to
know that we have friends and suppor-
ters who are willing to speak out," Watt
wrote.
Most people along the parade route
seemed fully in favor of honoring Watt
to express the community's ap-
preciation for his actions that affected
them and the nearby Olympic National
Park.
"THAT'S WHERE everybody sort of
identifies with Jim Watt, is that rather
than having the park as a possession he
wants to utilize it," said Larry Thor-

nton, an auto parts and repair shop
operator in Forks.
"Why spend our taxpayers' money,
what little we have of it, and buy land
you can't supervise anyway?" he
asked. "The man probably has done as
much for the parks and people as
anyone."
"He's been portrayed as a heartless,
cruel individual," said John Maris, an
organizer of the event. "His actions
haven't lived up to that reputation.'
"PEOPLE FROM back East don't
realize how big the park is," Maris
said. "It's as big or bigger than some of
their states."
Sheila Walhlgren, president of the
Forks Chamber of Commerce, said
very few people had written or called to
criticize the idea of honoring Watt.

THE TWO French soldiers were
wounded when their vehicle was rocked
by either a mine or remote-control
bomb as it led a convoy of U.N. troops
up the coastal highway 19 miles south of
Beirut.
One of the French soldiers was
hospitalized and the other was treated
and released, according to Timur
Goksel, spokesman for the U.N. In-
terim Force in Lebanon.
The U.N. force was sent to police the

French units in it are separate from
those in the multinational force in
Beirut, which is also made up of U.S.,
Italian and British troops.

fire committee announced, "All mem-
bers have agreed that formal requests
should be made to Italy and Greece to
undertake the mission of observing the
cease-fire.",

IN BRIEF
Compled from Associated Press and
United Press international reports
Zealots attack Jerusalem mayor
JERUSALEM-Ultra-Orthodox Jewish extremists assualted 72-year-old
Jerusalem Mayor Teddy Kollek with sticks and bottles yesterday, knocking
him down in a street brawl.
Kollek's spokesman, Rafi Davara, said the mayor suffered a scratch on
his face, a bruised knee and torn trousers, but he needed no medical atten-
tion.
It was the latest incident in a mounting campaign of violence by religious
extremists who believe modern Israel is a sacrilege against their Messianic
vision of a Jewish state and who oppose Kolleck's moves to provide secular
facilities such as swimming pools in their holy city.
Several ultra-Orthodox rabbis and notables expressed outrage at the at-
tack. Rabbi Menachem Porush, a member of the ultra-religious Agudat
Israel Party in the Israeli Parliament, called the attack a "despicable act
which must be protested without reservation," Israel Radio reported.
The mayor, campaigning for his fifth term, was invited to attend Sabbath
services at a synagogue in the Bucharin neighborhood just north of Mea
Shearim, the ghetto-like heartland of the self-described religious zealots.
Rumor confirmed: Grenada
prime minister arrested
ST. GEORGE's, Grenada-A member of Prime Minister Maurice Bishop's
Cabinet told a street rally yesterday that Bishop has been under house arrest
since Thursday and blamed the detention of Bernard Coard, Bishop's more
radical deputy.
Earlier yesterday, Grenada's leftist government warned against distur-
bances and said counterrevolutionaries were trying to take advantage of
"vicious rumors" apparently meaning reports that Coard ousted Bishop.
The government's Radio Free Grenada made no mention of Bishop's
status and said the only person arrested was Bishop's chief bodyguard. It
also said Coard resigned Friday to squelch rumors he had plotted to
assassinate Bishop.
A broadcast yesterday reported that Victor Nazim Burke had replaced
Coard as minister of finance, trade, industry and planning. Burke was a
permanent secretary in the Ministry of Trade.
Kendrick Radix, minister of fisheries and industrialization,led a 1-mile
march through St. George's, the capital, to demand Bishop's release.
West Germen protests continue
BONN, West Germany-Thousands of demonstrators marched and
blockaded U.S. military installations across West Germany to protest the
proposed deployment of cruise and Pershing-2 missiles in Western Europe.
Police used water canons to control youths in the northern port city of
Bremerhaven, where demonstrators smashed windows and fired signal
flares at police helicopters while protesting outside a U.S. army barracks
Two youths were injured in the police water canon assault, but another
20,000 protesters in Bremerhaven demonstrated peacefully:
It was the third day of a 10-day series of protests against the planned
deployment of 572 new medium-range U.S. missiles in Western Europe if
U.S. and Soviet negotiators fail to reach agreement in Geneva talks.
There also were protests against the U.S. presence in West Germany.
Turks fear oil pipeline security
ANKARA, Turkey-Turkish authorities, fearful of being dragged into the
war between Iran and Iraq, have stepped up security along a pipeline
carrying Iraqi oil through southeastern Turkey, Western diplomats said
yesterday.
The Turks reinforced patrols along the pipeline in response to new threats
by Iran and Iraq to strike at each other's oil-expoting facilities in their
escalating three-year Persian Gulf war, the diplomats said.
The 600-mile pipeline originates at Kirkuk in central Iraq, crosses a 400-
mile stretch of remote southeastern Turkey and ends at the Turkish oil ter-
minal of Ceyhan on the Mediterranean.
Diplomats said Turkey has set up more than a score of patrol posts along
the pipeline and reinforced the National Police presence in the area.
Iraq and Turkey in recent weeks have been reported planning to increase
the capacity of the pipeline, which now carries 650,000 barrels a day and ser-
ves as Iraq's sole oil exporting outlet.
South Korea says North Korea
'premeditated scheme' to invade
SEOUL, South Korea - President Chun Doo-hwan declared yesterday
that North Korea was plotting an invasion, and North Korea charged the
United States with spying on its coastal waters. The top U.S. general here
postponed a trip to Washington.
Chun said the alleged invasion plot was tied to the bombing in Burma Oct.
9 that killed 17 officials of his government - including four Cabinet
ministers. South Korean investigators said North Korean agents made the
explosive with ball bearings and an incendiary device of "anti-tank warhead
type."
Speaking before the country's top military men, Chun said: "It is being
proved that the barbarian act by the North Korean puppets in Burma was a
well-premediated scheme for war to assassinate myself as head of the nation

and perpetrate an armed invasion of the south...
"Therefore, the Burma incident was an aparent declaration of destructive
war against our survival and security. Their attempt for a second invasion of
the south has obviously failed and the only way left for them is self-
destruction," Chun said.
