Helmut Kohl of West Germany and King Faud of
Saudi Arabia, and for forces loyal to Zulfikar Ali
Bhutto, the late Pakistani prime minister, to over-
throw the government of President Zia ul-Haq.
Pakistani officials have said that Bhutto's two sons -
Murtaza and Shahnawas - are said to have
organized a Libya-backed underground group, Al-
Zulfikar, to avenger their father's 1979 execution by
Zia and overthrow Zia's regime.
Khadafy announced last May he was forming
roving death squads to hunt down and kill Libyan
dissidents, That was after gunfire from inside the
Libyan Embassy in London wounded 11 anti-Khadafy
demonstrators on the street outside and killed a
British policewoman.
Britain ordered the Libyans to leave the country
but did not arrest them because the Libyans inside
the embassy claimed diplomatic immunity. The two
countries subsequently closed their embassies in
each other's capitals.
On Friday, Tripoli Radio called Bakoush a "stray
dog" and said he was killed because he "sold his con-
science to the enemies of the Arab world and the
Libyan people." It warned that Khadafy's killers
would track down his opponents "wherever they

from there it was history.
Clearly, strategy was a big part in the
victory of the "Dweeb Hallers", who
credited their coach, Chris Roberts, an
LSA Junior.
"This makes all the training worth-

"I WOULDN'T do this at home unless

Reactions to the contest ranged from
"funny" to "poetic" to "the most
horrible thing I've ever seen."

to do that for a T-shirt. They truly
deserve financial aid if they did it for

medical student.

United Press International reports
Ortegaasks Reagan for summit
MANAGUA, Nicaragua-President-elect Daniel Ortega, insisting that lef-
tist Sandinista leaders are "not enemies" of the United States, has called for
a summit with President Reagan to ease heightening tensions between the
two nations.
"We are ready to meet anywhere," Ortega said in an exclusive interview
with United Press International. "We are ready to visit the United States or,
receive President Reagan here in Nicaragua or meet in any other place."
Dressed casually in blue jeans, a striped cotton shirt and a green leather
jacket, Ortega made his remarks Friday night at the Cesar Augusto Silva
Convention Center, the former Mejapa Country Club frequented by
Nicaragua's high society.
The 39-year-old head of Nicaragua's ruling junta was elected president -
Nov. 4-two days before the U.S. election-on the ticket of the Sandinista
National Liberation Front.
Gandhi probe spurs rumors
NEW DELHI, India - The investigation into Prime Minister Indira Gan-
dhi's assassination has spawned rumors and conflicting reports of a foreign-
backed conspiracy.
And the government's reluctance to talk about its investigations have fed
the confusion.
An Indian government spokesman declined comment yesterday on press
reports that investigators want to extradite a former Indian diplomat from
Norway for alleged involvement in a broad conspiracy to kill Gandhi.
New Delhi's largest circulation newspaper, the pro-government Hin-
dustan Times, alleged that the former envoy, a Sikh, paid $100,000 to one of
the suspected assassins. The Indian government has accused two men, both'
Sikhs and both members of Gandhi's personal security detail, in the Oct. 31
shooting. One of the men was himself shot dead and the other was wounded.
"I've nothing to say on that," External Affairs Ministry spokesman
Salman Haidar said. He said he was not aware of any extradition request by
the investigators.
U.S. plans marijuana blockade
MIAMI-U.S. Vessels will blockade major shipping lanes off the coast of;
Colombia in an attempt to stop the flow of the fall crop of marijuana into this
country, it was reported yesterday.
A spokesman for the South Florida Task Force on drugs would neither con-
firm nor deny reports by the Orlando Sentinel and ABC News Friday night
that the U.S. Navy was involved in the operation, to be called "Operation Hat
"We will not attest to its accuracy or remark to its inaccuracy," said Jim
Dingfelder of the task force.
But a Navy spokesman at the Pentagon said that if there is such a plan, it
will be carried out by the Coast Guard and not the Navy.
The task force is coordinating efforts by the Coast Guard, U.S. Customs,
the federal Drug Enforcement Administration and state authorities to stop
Colombia's fall marijuana harvest from getting to Florida or anywhere else
in the country.
NBC television show forces night
court session for murder case
ROCKFORD, Ill.-The trial of a man accused of killing his wife and three
children will iove to rare night sessions today and tomorrow so jurors can- -
not see a made-for-television movie about an Army doctor convicted of mur-
dering his family.
The scheduling change was ordered at the request of defense lawyers in
the murder trial of businessman David Hendricks because of the broadcast
of NBC's two-part dramatization "Fatal Vision."
A prosecutor says there are some "striking" similarities between the
Hendricks case and the subject of the NBC mini-series, the 1979 conviction of
Dr. Jeffrey MacDonald, a former Green Beret physician, on charges of
murdering his pregnant wife and their two daughters.
Hendricks, 30, a back-brace inventor and salesman from Bloomington, is
charged in the Nov. 7, 1983, ax and knife slayings of his wife and three
youngsters. He denies committing the killings, contending he was in
Wisconsin on a sales trip when his family was slain and his home ransacked.
Hendricks' lawyers contend that two or more people invaded the house
and murdered Susan Hendricks, 30, and the couple's two daughters, aged 9
and7, and son, age 5.
FBI continues investigation into
nine Tampa Bay sex murders
TAMPA, Fla.-FBI agents examined clothing fibers yesterday seeking
more evidence against an unemployed radiology technician held without
bail on charges that he committed nine sex murders of young women over
the last six months.
The two FBI clothing specialists were brought to Tampa Friday night to
help strengthen the chain of evidence against Robert "Bobbi Jo" Long, 31,
who was arrested earlier Friday, Hillsborough County Sheriff Walter
Heinrich said.
Long faces nine counts of first-degree murder plus two counts of sexual
battery, abduction and robbery. Assistant State Attorney Michael Benito

said he will ask for the death penalty and go before the Hillsborough County
grand jury to seek indictments Nov. 28.
