Hijackers
insist on
release of
prisoners
From AP and UPI
KUWAIT - Five gunmen who
hijacked a Kuwaiti airliner to Tehran
threatened yesterday to blow up the
plane with all 95 people aboard unless
Kuwait freed 21 people imprisoned for
tbombing U.S. and French facilities.
Kuwait refused.
Iran's official news agency said the
hijackers disclosed that a hostage they
phot to death and dumped on the tar-
mac Tuesday a U.S. diplomat, but U.S.
officials in Washington said they had no
conformation the victim was an
American.
S THEY DEMANDED Kuwait release
21 people who were imprisoned for a
wave of bombings against French and
U.S. facilities in Kuwait last December,
Kuwaiti officials said. The bombings
were attributed to Shiite Moslem sup-
porters of Iran's Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeini.
The hijackers freed 23 passengers
Wednesday, increasing to 67 the num-
ber released since the Airbus A-300 jiet
was hijacked Monday. There were 161
people aboard the Kuwait-to-Karachi,
Pakistan flight. The airline said 120 of
them were Pakistanis.
"We're concerned about everybody
on that plane, but obviously we're par-
ticularly concerned about American
citizens," State Department
spokesman John Hughes said in
Washington.
"The hijackers in their negotiations
have identified the dead passenger,
which previously was said to be a
British national, as an American
diplomat," IRNA said but gave no fur-
ther details.

Recent Nicaragua
visitor recalls tension

By KEVIN KELLY
After recently returning fromaNicaragua, Ann Arbor
resident Lynn Torke told a small group at the Federal
Building yesterday, she saw the fear escalating in the coun-
try. She spoke of the planes flying at supersonic speed and
said they sounded like bombs exploding.
Torke was there during the recent elections and said
people really cared to vote, the voter turnout was 82 per-
cent.
THE GROUP gathered at the noon rally to oppose what
the Nicaragua Action/Education Group (NAEG) calls "ac-
ts of international terrorism by our government,"
specifically to protest U.S. policy toward Nicaragua.
"People say they want peace there," said Torke, "and
everybody is out there defending their country." "They put
hope in the U.S.," she added, "but people are afraid of a
Grenada."
Mike O'Neill, one of 13 protestors arrested for attempting
to block the entrance at Williams International Monday, a
producer of engines for the cruise missiles, told the group he
is preparing to go to jail. He said he is "acting for a lot of.
our friends." O'Neill instructed the group to meet him at the
Ann Arbor Public Library at 7:00 a.m. Friday and accom-
pany him to Pontiac where he will be sentenced.
ANN MARIE COLEMAN of the Interfaith Council for
Peace told the group to keep engaging in the struggle for
peace even though it is easy to burnout when fighting such a
difficult problem. "I don't believe in burnout," she said.

"We have lost and we'll probably lose a few times more."
Coleman praised the NAEG, which sponsored the rally,
for its recent success in collecting 3,000 signatures on
a petition calling for an immediate halt to all U.S. activity
directed against Nicaragua.
Later Coleman said she sees a great deal of interest from
students about what is happening in Nicaragua, and is
pleased that 50 to 75 students are present at meetings and
rallies protesting actions in Nicaragua.
DEAN BAKER OF the Latin American Solidarity Commit-
tee (LASC) announced a recent plan drawn up by several
area peace and Latin Aemrican groups calling for rallies,
vigils, and sit-ins in the event of further U.S. escalation in
Nicaragua.
The contingency plan is modeled after a similar one in
Sojourner magazine pledging those repsonses only in the
event of an invasion. Thea Lee, also of LASC, said their plan
calls for a response to actions short of an invasion.
Should a one-time military action happen like an air
strike, the plan outlines a noon rally, and an evening prayer
service to mourn possible loss of life.
A naval blockade will prompt a non-violent civil
disobedience and vigil outside the office of Carl Pursell
whose voting record tends to be mixed, said Lee. She added,
when voting is close, Pursell votes like Reagan. "We know
what he's doing and we want him to be aware."

Death toll rises in India

(Continued from Page 1)
"Some 25 tons of MIC (methyl
isocynate) were released through a
safety valve,"rAvasti said, addinghthe
volume "overwhelmed a scrubber meant
to neutralize the gas."
SINGH SAID officials were checking
for safety violatons and vowed to
prosecute any Union Carbide officials
found to have circumvented
regulations. Five management officials
were arrested Monday on charges of
negligence.
"I don't think we were ever warned
by the company" of the potential
dangers posed by its operaiton, he said,
reiterating a vow that the plant "is

never going to start functioning here -
never again."
Singh said legal officers were
examining the possibilities of suing the
company to secure "compensation
commensurate with the enormity of the
tragedy."
P. K. Akerkar, a public relations of-
ficial for Union Carbide in Bombay,
said the company would pay compen-
sation but declined to specify if the In-
dian government had to date requested
payments.
Neither Sathe nor Akerkar suggested
any specific figures.

Pane ifinds murder
manual violated law

Singh
...vows to prosecute

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - The CIA broke the
law with a guerrilla war manual for
Nicaraguan rebels, the House In-
telligence Committee said yesterday,
chastizing the spy agency for confusion
and negligence in its production of the
booklet.
One panel member said CIA Director
William Casey confessed to "negligen-
ce in management" during a two-hour
appearance before the committee to
review the manual, which critics
charge advocates political
assassination.
A MAJORITY of the Democratic-
controlled committee concluded that
although the spy agency violated a 1983
ban on spending money on operations
against Nicaragua with the manual, it
did not intentionally violate a presiden-
tial ban on U.S. participation in or

planning for assassinations.
However, a committee statement
promised further investigation and
suggested there may be evidence the
CIA tried to funnel aid to the rebels af-
ter Congress cut off money for the ef-
fort.
The 90-page, Spanish-language
manual, entitled "Psychological
Operations in Guerrilla War,"
suggested "selective use of violence" to
"neutralize" Nicaraguan officials,
hiring professional criminals, creating
"martyrs" and coercing Nicaraguans
into carrying out rebel assignments
"The entire publication and
distribution of the manual was marked
within the agency by confusion about
who had authority and responsibility
for the manual," the committee
statement said.

POWELL, WHO had worked for the
University since 1976, said he appealed
his dismissal through ". ..the normal
grievance process ." forre-
enstatement in his old position. He also
filed acomplaintwith the Michigan
Department of Civil Rights.
The complaint stated that Powell was
fired "because of race and issues
dealing with race," as well as his in-
volvement in protests against Univer-
sity connections to South Africa.
The University turned down Powell's
appeal in June, 1983 and chose not to re-
hire him based on the original charges
of misconduct, Powell said. Powell
proceeded with the civil rights com-
plaint. "I wanted a resolution without

having to go to court," he said.
UNIVERSITY Vice-Presidnet for
Student Services Henry Johnson, who
was Powell's boss, declined to com-
ment on the settlement.
"Through the settlement, the
University has made a subtle ad-
mission that its charges were wrong,"
said Powell.
Powell served as Acting Director of
Trotter House, a multi-cultural Univer-
sity center until a month before his
dismissal, when he was transferred to
the Assistant Director post at Com-
munity Services. Powell said
that on the day he was dismissed from
Trotter House, a picture appeared in
the Ann Arbor News showing him and
other protesters demonstrating against
the University's involvement in South
Africa.

Dow gives $1.5 million

(Continued from Page 1)
partment has been put on the back bur-
ner for several years by University of-
ficials who were forced to trim the
budget in the face of declining state aid
to the University.
"RENOVATION is not the answer,"
said Taylor. "We've been renovating all
along. What we need is a new building."
The department was among a few
special projects targeted for funding
under the University's capital cam-
paign to raise $160 million in private
gifts. About $20 million will be set aside
for renovations and for a new facility
adjacent to the existing chemistry
building.
The additional $40 million needed to
fund the project will be paid for by the
state and the University, Muir said.

University President Harold Shapiro
personally solicited the Dow con-
tribution, which ahs been in negotiation
for more than two years, Muir said.
University officials hope that Dow's
gift wil spur donations from other
chemical companies and "anybody else
who'll listen," Taylor said.
L PREPARE FOR:

CIA protesters on trial

(Continued from Page 1)
Roosa said the protests are occuring
because many students are an
outgrowth of the increasing U.S. in-
volvement in Central America.
"THE CIA war in Central America is
on our minds, like Vietnam was on the
minds of the protesters during the
'60's,"Roosa said. "People feel that an
invasion of Nicaragua is imminent.
They feel the need to take action."
The CIA has downplayed the inciden-
ts, labelinig them as infrequent and
sporadic. CIA spokesperson Cathy
Pherson said the agency has gotten bad
publicity lately, but said there are
many campuses where recruiting
causes no problems.
"Once in a while we may get some
trouble. It depends on what's in the
news," Pherson said.
Patty Volz, another CIA spokesper-

son, said the agency looks for a wide
variety of people for positions in
linguistics, engineering, economics,
political analysis, and computers.
