Students convicted i test scam
Looking for a way to make up for the
lousy grades you got on your midterm?
Two former University of Texas
students can recommend the wrong
way to study for finals.
Gregory Wallace and Harry Fouke
were convicted and sentenced last week
for attempting to steal final exams
from Prof. Robert Witt of the Univer-
sity of Texas Department of Marketing.
w.. District Court Judge Jon Wisser sen-
tenced the two to five years' probation
after they confessed to the burglary.
The pair had been offered $100 for a
,marketing final and $400 for a finance
final by university student James
Brown, who received immunity from
'prosecution for agreeing to testify
against Wallace and Fouke.

University police caught Wallace and

December. The exam thieves had used
duplicate keys to unlock the office door
and the file cabinet where the finals
The university has suspended 23
students for one year for their par-
ticipation in the theft.
Assistant District Attorney Ben
Florey said that the exam thefts may be
related to a string of thefts at the
unive sity and at several other
colleges. He would not say which
colleges were involved or how many
students are part of the ring.

Texas A & M hero
admits to lying
Suffering from a slightly bruised
ego, A Texas A & M student faces
possible expulsion from the school's
prestigious Corps of Cadets for lying
about an aborted act of heroism.
Clarence Brown, a sargeant in the
university's military program and a
member of the crime-fighting Guardian
Angels, told his rrommate last month
that he spotted a woman being attacked
by three men while he was jogging.
Brown said he dashed to the woman's
rescue, told her to flee, and suffered
razor cuts on his face and arms while
fending off the attackers.

Tobert Austin of Santa Monica, Calif.,
was arrested last week for "tampering
with very sensitive information" that
will cost "hundreds of thousands of
dollars" to reprogram or replace.
By using local telephone lines and
some little-used accounts, Austin not
only gained access to computer net-
works in private companies, including
the Rand Corporation, but also used the
UCLA system to brek into the Advan-

when he noticed someone had frequen-

Thomas Turgend, a spokesman for the
university's science and engineering
departments. He said that Austin had
tried to enter a popular introductory
computer course this term, but was
unable to get in because he has not
declared his major.
"The whole thing sounds too much
like the movie Wargames, except that
the fate of mankind wasn't hanging in
the balance," Turgend said. "The ap-
proach and evenathe techniquekand
maybe the motivation sounds like it
was taken right out of the movie."
Although none of the research Austin
tampered with was classified, he
destroyed some valuable university
research files and programs. "This
case just shows it's not difficult to inter-

a spokesman for the district attorney's

He later told the same story to police
and reporters, who lauded his heroic
actions. But police and campus
authorities suspected that Brown's
report may have been a publicity stunt
for the Guardian Angels.
The real story came out when Brown
flunked a polygraph test. Brown did
see three men and a woman exchanging
loud words, and he did run over to help
the woman, according to Campus
Police Supervisor Bob Wiatt. But he
was immediately overpowered and
beaten up for interfering in a private
Brown said he embellished his story
when he arrived back at his dorm and
had to explain his injuries to his fellow
corps members. "I switched a few
things around. After taking a cut on my
face, (the three men) pinned me to the

charges against Brown, but the Corps

voluntary for male students. "The cor-

program at other universities," Wiatt
said. At A & M it's a very elite
organization, so the incident is a real
slap in their faces."
Brown will be judged by the corps'
court and may be expelled from the
group, Abbot said. He added that ex-
pulsion from the corps would not mean
expulsion from the university.

Lebanon peace talks adjourned
GENEVA, Switzerland - Leaders of Lebanon's warring factions adjour-
ned their national reconciliation conference for 10 days yesterday to give
President Amin Gemayel time to marshal support for renegotiating his
troop withdrawal pact with Israel.
The decision to adjourn the five days of unprecedented meetings Friday
came as Israeli forces flew bombing raids over Syrian-backed positions in
central Lebanon. The raids followed a truck-bomb attack on Israeli
headquarters in southern Lebanon.
Saeb Salam, former Sunni Moslem prime minister and one of the nine con-
ference delegates, said news of the attack provided "a definite urge on the
part of everyone to try their best" to solve the Lebanese crisis.
During yesterday's session, delegates agreed to take steps to reinforce the
Sept. 26 cease-fire agreement that ended the latest round of civil war and set
up a commission to study reforming Lebanon's political system.
Conference officials said the delegates would return to Geneva on Nov. 14
to consider the thorny troop withdrawal issue, which dominated the talks,
and proposals to reform Lebanon's political, social and economic systems.
Soviet sub stranded off U.S. coast
WASHINGTON - A Soviet Salvage tug sped yesterday to the rescue of a
Russian attack submarine that broke down in the Atlantic and was stranded
on the surface off the U.S. coast - in plain view of American surveillance
The U.S. destroyer Peterson, based in Pascagoula, Miss., moved into the
vicinity of the stricken Victor III Class sub to monitor its activity and recon-
naissance aircraft kept a round-the-clock watch on the late model boat,,
Navy Lt.Cmdr. Mark Neuhard said.
The 6,000-ton hunter-killer sub surfaced 470 miles off Charleston, S.C., and
was spotted Wednesday by a P-3 Orion reconnaissance plane on routine
The Navy said the sub's mission below the surface is to pinpoint the
whereabouts of U.S. submarines armed with intercontinental-range nuclear

German prof faces spy charges
BOSTON - An East German charged with attempting to steal U.S.
military secrets said yesterday he is merely a university professor, not, as
the government claims, a "highly trained spy."
Alfred Zehe, 44, was ordered held without bail after a federal prosecutor
called him "a trained East\German espionage agent." "There are ac-
cusements that I must reject. A highly trained spy? I am very sorry, I am a
Zehe, who was led into the small courtroom in handcuffs, was not
represented by an attorney. He said he would contact his embassy.
"I hope they will help me," he said.
The FBI alleges that Zehe contacted an American civilian employee of the
U.S. Navy in Mexico City in October 1982 and requested secret documents
dealing with military technology. The American civilian, who was not iden-
tified, was cooperating with the FBI and the Naval Investigative Service.
According to the complaint read in court Friday, Zehe paid the civilian a
total of $11,500 after receiving information from him in Mexico City in April
and May. The complaint also alleged Zehe received more information from
the American during a meeting in East Berlin in July.
Guerillas sack PLO stronghold
TRIPOLI, Lebanon - Syrian-backed guerrilla mutineers rained rocket,
artillery and tank fire on Yasser Arafat's last Mideast stronghold yesterday.
Some 200 people have been killed in two days of fighting, hospitals reported.
The embattled Palestine Liberation Organization chief vowed to fight
"irrespective of the odds.'
"We shall not bow to Syria. I shall bow my head only to God Almighty,"
Arafat told reporters at the Badfdawi refugee camp.
Tripoli's governor, Iskandar Ghibril, said in a radio broadcast that
hospitals were "saturated and can no longer cope with the influx of victims."
The mutiny against Arafat is led by two PLO officials he once demoted -
Nimr Salen and Col. Saeed Mousa. Both are supported by Syria, which ex-
pelled Arafat in June on grounds he had abandoned the idea of military
struggle against Israel in favor of negotiation.
LA wages war against fruit fly
HUNTINGTON PARK, Calif. - For the second time in 14 months, an air-
borne war is being waged against an infestation of "superpest" fruit flies
that could wreck Los Angeles County's $2.5 billion fresh fruit industry.
Last year the enemy was the Mediterranean fruit fly. This time it's the
Mexican fruit fly, which is making its first significant foray into California,
officials say. So far the flies have been found only in backyard gardens, but
there is concern that they may spread to commercial orchards.
"It's a bad situation," the county's chief deputy agricultural com-
missioner, John Manning, said yesterday. "We will feel more confident after
we get our first treatment of malathion a pesticide on the ground."
Aerial spraying was to start Friday night and continue through February
over a 41-square-mile area encompassing a mostly residential and industrial
area just south of Los Angeles.
There has never before been a significant infestation of the Mexican fruit
fly in California, country agricujtural commission Paul Engler said.
However, he noted that there have been major infestations north of the
Mexican border, particularly in Texas.
