House debates
imited Grenada
press coverage

WASHINGTON (AP) - Top network
representatives yesterday assailed a
ban on news coverage of the U.S. in-
vAtion of Grenada, with a CBS
executive calling the policy "the dawn
of- new era of censorship."
CBS News President Edward Joyce
told Congress the Reagan ad-
ministration resorted to "unpreceden-
t0'd censorship" and "introduced a new
reJtionship with the press, a relation-
ship virtually unknown in U.S. history."
TESTIFYING before a House
Judiciary subcommittee, Joyce said
journalists posed no threat to the
scurity of the invasion or the lives of
UIS. troops. His view was shared by
sliior comrentator John Chancellor of

NBC, and ABC senior correspondent
David Brinkley.
"I am seriously concerned that we
may indeed be witnessing the dawn of a
new era of censorship, of manipulation
of the press, of considering the media
the handmaiden of government to sp-
oon-feed the public with government-
approved informaton," Joyce said.
The hearing, conducted by the sub-
committee on courts, civil liberties, and
the administration of justice, was the
first of a series on the conflict between
the need for information and national

to get some 600 Cubans captured in the

the question of the wounded," Speakes
said. "Now, we are able to deal with
those who are able-bodied and we will
try to return them as soon as we can
work out the technical arrangements.','

Jackson may spur black vote
WASHINGTON - On the eve of Jesse Jackson's presidential declaration,
analysts predict a 2 million increase in national black registration in 1984,
with much of the gain concentrated in states that Ronald Reagan narrowly
carried in 1980.
Leaders of groups working for a big black turnout said yesterday that
Jackson's candidacy - which he will formally declare today - will serve as a
spur, but the real "triggering force" was Harold Washington's victory in
Chicago in April.
They point to Washington's win as an object lesson that has not been lost on
the black man in the street of what an energetic registration campaign could
achieve - and as a factor in subsequent black political triumphs in mayoral
primaries or elections in Philadelphia, Boston and Birmingham, Ala.
As a result, they claimed that a 20 to 25 percent increase in black
registration is feasible - "ambitious but not impossible," as Gracia Hillman
executive director of the National Coalition on Black Voter Participation,
put it.
About 10 million blacks were registered in 1982 and seven million were
Nicaragua Church protests
against deportation of priests
MANAGUA, Nicaragua - Priests refused to celebrate mass yesterday, All
Souls' Day, to protest he deportation of two priests in what they claim ins a
harassment campaign of the Roman Catholic Church by the Sandinista
A government communique Tuesday announced that two foreign priests
were being deported for publicly criticizing a military draft law. The com-
munique accused the Rev. Luis Corral Prieto and the Rev. Jose Maria
Pacheco of "urging people to ignore the Military Service Law and suppor-
ting the counterrevolutionaries by demanding a dialogue between the
government and the rebels."
The protest call was also heeded in other parts of the country.
A growing dispute between the church and the Sandinistas intensified
when a conference of the country's bishops criticized a military draft law
enacted by the leftist government. The government says the law is in
response to an "imminent" U.S.-supported invasion of Nicaragua by rebel
exiles and troops.
After two days of deliberations, the bishops issued a communique Tuesday
night calling for a day of national protest. They asked for churches to remain
closed and the faithful to stay home and fast and pray.
"Our Church is being persecuted," the bishops' communique said.
Jamaica expels Soviet diplomats
KINGSTON, Jamaica - The Soviet Embassy yesterday denied Jamaican
accusations that four Russian diplomats plotted murder, calling their ex-
pulsion an attempt to worsen relations between the two nations.
A Soviet Embassy spokesman said the four diplomats planned to leave
Jamaica tomorrow, just under the deadline imposed in Tuesday's expulsion
order issued by Prime Minister Edward Seaga.
The prime minister told Parliament he was expelling the Soviets and the
Jamaica correspondent for the Cuban news agency in connection with an
alleged plot to kill a female employee of the Jamaican Foreign Ministry.
Seaga said security officials had learned the five men hatched the alleged
murder plot because the unidentified woman had learned that another
ministry employee was passing information to the Soviets.
Marines tighten security as
sese investigations continue
BEIRUT, Lebanon-U.S. Marines yesterday shifted the main entrance to
their camp to the gate used by the suicide terrorist and set up a heavily for-
tified 130-yard maze in hopes of foiling any more bomb attacks.
Police sources said, meanwhile, that Lebanese investigators were
threatened with death if they continue to probe the Oct. 23 bombings that
killed 230 Marines and sailors at Beirut airport and 58 French troops a mile
The sources, who requested anonymity, did not name those making the
threats. 'But they disclosed that the terrorists first surveyed the bomb
targets by posing as peddlers.
As FBI laboratory specialists continued analyzing the 40-foot-wide bomb
crater, the Marines shifted the new main entrance to their camp at Beirut
airport from north to south.
Fake professor pleads guilty
CARLISLE, Pa. - A college professor who taught under assumed names
at two state universities at the same time pleaded guily yesterday to four
misdemeanor counts of forgery. He agreed to pay $17,600 restitution and
could face a prison term.
Paul Crafton, 60, must pay $14,00 to Millersville and Shippensburg state
universities for tuition refunds and new courses for the students he taught.
He also agreed with prosecutors to pay $3,400 in prosecution costs to the
state. Crafton could get a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail and a $20,000
Twenty-four felony counts of forgery, tampering with records, false
swearing and theft by deception were dropped by Pennsylv'ania Attorney

General LeRoy Zimmerman's office.
A sentencing hearing has not been scheduled. Zimmerman said he would
seek a prison term.
By pleading guilty, Crafton avoided a trial and thus left unanswered a host
of questions about why he used the credentials of a Canadian and an
Australian professor.
