that there will be a "genuine oppor-

he sees the Soviet Union as continuing
its buildup of nuclear forces.
The death of Brezhnev has led to a
power struggle within the USSR, the
speakers said. Some are optimistic that
a younger leader could make the
Soviet's foreign policy more con-
ciliatory. Others feel a younger leader
would be more hardline and are content
to leave the present leadership dying.

Soviet leader," said Brzezinski "He is
stupid and ill."

agreements, "on the one hand you have

Polarization of opinion on arms control,

right, coupled with such regional con-
flicts as Afghanistan, makes it nearly

Reagan's 'Star Wars" policy is not the
best way to protect the nation.
Carter disagreed with Reagan's
argument that absolute security for the
U.S. would mean absolute security for
the Soviet Union. Carter said such
policies would lead to a very
destabliized international economy.

Now chanting "hey, hey, ho, ho, the
CIA has got to go," many of the
protesters followed the representatives
out of the MLB, across the street, and
up a flight of stairs to their car.
The crowd switched its shouts and
jeers to cheers of "don't come back,"
as the representatives drove off.
"OBVIOUSLY we're not too happy
with the situation, but it wasn't entirely
unexpected," said one CIA represen-
tative who would not give her name as
she walked briskly ahead of the
protesters. "We've met with some op-

haven't seen this before."

Accused Gandhi killer denied bail
NEW DELHI, India - Investigators probing Prime Minister Indira Gan-
dhi's assassination have arrested a member of her security team and in-
terrogated several of her bodyguards in what the prosecutor yesterday
called "a criminal conspiracy.",
Magistrate O.p. Gogne rejected a bail application yesterday from the
arrested man, Jagtar Singh, a Sikh who was a member of the prime
minister's inner security ring. His arrest Oct. 31, the day Mrs. Gandhi was
assassinated, had not been revealed previously.
Jagtar Singh was arrested shortly after the slaying of the 66-year-old
prime minister who ruled India for 15 of the past 18 years. He was first char-
ged with possessing an illegal weapon. After interrogation, the charges
were broadened to include involvement in the assassination, officials said.
Government prosecutor V.A. Gupta argued against releasing Singh on bail
yesterday, saying he was involved "in the criminal conspiracy hatched for
the assassinaton of Mrs. Gandhi and his release would seriously hamper the
investigation of the sensitive case.
Committee okays seat belt bill
LANSING -- The House Insurance Committee approved mandatory seat
belt legislation yesterday by a wide margin, but the measure faces an uncer-
tain future in the full House and Senate.
The bill, approved 12-2, provides a fine of $10 next year, beginning April 1,
1985, for those who fail to buckle up. The penalty would increase to fine and
court costs totaling $25 in 1986.
Those riding in the front seat are covered by the act, which would be the
second of its kind in the nation if adopted by the full House.
Unless states accounting for two-thirds of the U.S. population require seat
belt use by 1989, the federal government will mandate the use of air bags or
so-called passive restraints.
While similar measures have failed in the past, Rep. David Hollister, the
key House supporter, is optimistic about this one.
Conquering hostility lowers risk
of second seizure, study says
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - Teaching heart attack victims to conquer their
hostility and impatience, hallmarks of Type A personality behavior, cuts
their risk of suffering another seizure by half, according to a report released
"I know of no instrument in medicine or surgery that gives those kinds of
results," said Dr. Meyer Friedman, who pioneered the study of Type A
behavior. "I think that when this is confirmed, it will almost be considered
malpractice not to try to alter Type A behavior in the patient who has
already had a coronary."
Meyer, of Mount Zion Hospital and Medical Center in Sanfrancisco,
released his latest findings at the annual scientific meeting of the American
People with Type A behavior tend to aproach life with a sense of urgency.
They are impatient, aggressive, and often hostile.
Sales drop could hurt Santa
WASHINGTON -- Retail sales in October dropped for the third month out
of the last four, raising concern about how good a Christmas merchants will
have and prompting the belief that the economy is mired in a period of very
The Commerce Department reported yesterday that retail sales in Oc-
tober dipped 0.1 percent to a seasonally adjusted total of $107.7 billion. The
decline would have been an even sharper 1 percent drop had it not been for
the first increase in auto sales since June.
Since the June peak, retail sales dropped in both July and August before
rising in September. However, the department revised the September figure
Wednesday to show a lower 1.2 percent increase instead of the 1.6 percent
gain originally reported.
The Reagan administration talked confidently of a further rebound in
sales, but many private economists viewed the lackluster October sales per-
formance and slashed their own predictions for growth in the final three
months of the year.
Cornea cuts may improve vision
ATLANTA -- Controversial surgery to improve vision with a starburst of
cuts in the cornea reduced nearsightedness in every one of 435 patients
studied, with no serious effects, according to a study released yesterday.
The vision of 78 percent of those given the surgery, called radial
laratotomy, was corrected from mild to moderate nearsightedness to 20-40
or better, meaning they no longer need glasses or contact lenses for most ac-
tivities, including driving.
The study has been bitterly debated by proponents of the surgery, who
claim its safety and effectiveness have been amply demonstrated, and by
critics who accuse some ophthalmologists of rushing too quickly to adopt an
Critics have been concerned that the procedure, developed in the Soviet;
Union and first performed in this country in 1978, might cause eye infections,
cataracts or long-term damage to the cornea.
"Myopia is not a disease of the eye -- it's a variant of normal, and
therefore one has to justify very carefully any risk involved," unlike in eye:
disease where the risks of treatment are balanced against possible harm
from the disease, said a participant in the new study, Dr. Walter Stark of the
Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.
