LOS ANGELES (AP) - The FBI arrested one of its owner
agents on espionage charges yesterday, accusing the
California-based counterspy of selling secrets to a female
Soviet agent who government sources say may have been his
lover, and to her estranged husband.
Special Agent Richard.Miller, 47, a 20-year FBI veteran
said to have been in financial trouble, was the first PBI
agent ever charged with espionage and the case marked the
first known foreign infiltration of the FBI.
MILLER, A counterspy based in Los Angeles, was
arrested at his home and appeared before U.S. Magistrate
Roger McKee in San Diego. He was ordered back to court to
face a charge of conspiracy to gather defense information
to aid a foreign government. Maximum penalty upon con-
viction would be life in prison..
No plea was entered. Miller, a portly man who wore a rum-
pled blue shirt, winked at his wife, Paula, in court, and she
waved. The couple exchanged sign language messages.
No bail was allowed because "flight is a real strong risk,"
Assistant U.S. Attorney Ray "Edwards said. A court
document says there was a plan for Miller to go to Vienna or

peared before U.S. Magistrate Volney Brown yesterday.
Dressed in a sweatshirt, blue jeans and a baseball cap, he
said he was destitute, with just $5 in his savings account. He
removed his cap when he stood before Brown.

Mrs. Ogorodnikova, wearing handcuffs, appeared before
Brown and said only, "Yes," when asked if her true name
was on the complaint. She also claimed to be destitute.
THE FBI SAID its information was based on interviews
with Miller and Ogorodnikova, survillance of all three,
court-approved electronic bugging of the Soviet couple's
apartment, and a search of Miller's residence to which he
An affidavit said Miller "admitted having numerous per-
sonal meetings with Swetlana Ogorodnikova from late May
1984 to late September 1984." Government sources in
Washington, who spoke on condition they not be identified,
said the relationship may have been sexual.
"Discovery of this document would give the KGB a
detailed picture of FBI and U.S. intelligence activities,
techniques, and requirements," the affidavit said.

HUDSONVILLE, Mich - Lunch-time
"Bible clubs" in six elementary schools
will nqt start until the board of
education can review a recent court
decision, Hudsonville Superintendent
Jack Musser said yesterday.
The voluntary religious classes,
which, were scheduled to start next
week, will not be held until the board
meets to consider a ruling issued last
week by U.S. District Judge Richard
Enslen, Musser said.
Enslen issued a preliminary injun-
ction Monday preventing the .Tri-
County School District from holding
lunch time Bible clubs at their elemen-
The judge said the Christian classes
that ask students to memorize Bible,
verses and listen to religious stories
violate the constitutional mandate of
separation of church and state.
The classes are conducted by Volun-
teers for Bible Center Ministries of
Jenison. They had been held in the Tri-
County schools for some 30 years and at
least five years in Hudsonville public
Enslen said the clubs violated the
Constitution because they were held on
school property during school hours.
Districts can legally allow such classes
if they are not held during school hours
or if students are released to attend the
sessions at off-campus locations.
The Tri-County district was slapped
with a lawsuit after its school board
voted last month to continue the clubs
as they had been held for years despite
warning from the State Board of
Education and Attorney General
Jay Wabeke of Americans United for
Separation of Church and State said his
organization may complain to the state
if the Hudsonville school board decides
to continue the classes.
