Aquino releases leftist leader
MANILA, Philippines - The Aquino government released the im-
prisoned founder of the Communist Party and three guerrilla leaders
yesterday despite U.S. and military warnings the move could assist the
leftist insurgency.
The government, which took power last week after a military-led revolt
toppled the 20-year regime of President Ferdinand Marcos, also moved
toward opening peace talks with rebel forces.
President Corazon Aquino visited the presidential palace for the first
time yesterday after military officials declared it safe of booby traps left
by Marcos forces and formally swore into office two Cabinet ministers
and the Central Bank governor.
The four political prisoners freed yesterday were the last of 517
Filipinos arrested by the Marcos regime to be ordered released by
Aquino in a program of national reconciliation

STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Police intensified the search- for Prime
Minister Olof Palme's assassin yesterday and called in a special West
German team to put the finishing touches on a portrait of a suspect.
Stockholm Police Chief Hans Holmer said a 22-year-old woman artist
who saw a man believed to be the killer gave police a key new lead - a
portrait of the suspect's face.
"This is the first witness who has given us a face," Holmer said.
The drawing is detailed, but Holmer said he did not want to release it
until a team of West German identity specialists had a chance to examine
the sketch and talk to other witnesses.
The specialists from the Federal Criminal Police Command in.
Wiesbaden, West Germany, were to arrive in Stockholm last night with
an identity kit to "flesh out" the portrait, the police chief said.

Then-presidential science adviser
George Keyworth requested that the
panel determine whether relations
between the federal government and
universities should be changed,
paying particular attention to scien-
tific and technical concerns "needed
to sustain America's leadership in in-
dustry and defense."
BROMLEY provided an outline, but
not a copy, of the panel's report

he had decided to talk about the report
before its release because portions of
it had already become public.

he said.
Among the panel's recommen-
dations is one to set up a $5 billion
federal "catch-up" fund for updating
college facilities. Under the proposal,
federal funds could be used to cover
only 50 percent of the costs of any
remodeling project, with the rest of
the money coming from state or
private sources.
THE PANEL is also calling for a
new scholarship fund, which Bromley
estimated to cost $120 million a year,
to be awarded to the top 1 percent of
undergraduates in mathematics,
engineering, and the natural sciences.

Other recommendations by the
panel would give university resear-
chers more discretion in spending
government grant money and reduce
paperwork requirements. The panel
also wants universities and gover-
nment to encourage the establishment
of interdisciplinary research and
technology centers, Bromley said.
He said the panel found that "the

Nazi hunter acquits Waldheim
VIENNA, Austria - Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal is convinced Kurt
Walkheim was never a Nazi but believes the former U.N. chief must
have known Greek Jews were being sent to death camps during World'
War II, the West German news agency reported yesterday.
Wiesenthal, whose Vienna-based operation for tracking down Nazi war
criminals has earned world recognition, said there is "nothing at all in-
criminating" against Waldheim in new charges made by newspapers and
the World Jewish Congress.
In an interview with the German news agency DPA carried by the
Austrian Press Agency, Wiesenthal said Waldheim never belonged "to
the Nazi Party or one of its branches."
Waldheim, 67, has previously been cleared of ties to the Nazi Party by
the Austrian government and later by the U.N. Security Council before he
became secretary-general.
In Vienna, Waldheim, who is a candidate for the Austrian presidency,
called the accussations "nonsense," saying they were an effort to
discredit him before the May 6 election.

WASHINGTON - The House Intelligence Committee, ignoring
President Reagan's plea that the United States must be spared having to
send "our own American boys" to Nicaragua, voted yesterday to
recommend against giving $100 million to rebels fighting the Sandinista
Despite the committee's opposition, however, the request for $70
million military aid and $30 million logistical aid must still go to the
House floor.
Reagan earlier had told a White House audience that "if we give them
the aid they need, the Nicaraguan people can win this battle for freedom
on their own. American troops have not been asked for and are not
"But if the members of Congress hide their heads in the sand and
pretend the Nicaraguan threat will go away, they are courting disaster
and history will hold them accountable," he said. Nothing less than the
security of the United States is at stake."
Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger argued that the leftist
Nicaraguan government was becoming a "second Cuba on the American
mainland (meaning) the Warsaw Pact will have effectively outflanked
Reagan may cancel sumnit
WASHINGTON - President Reagan served notice on the Kremlin
yesterday that he will not go to Moscow for a summit until Soviet leader
Mikhail Gorbachev first comes to Washington for similar talks.
At their first summit last November, Reagan and Gorbachev agreed to
two more meetings - in the United States in 1986 and in the Soviet Union
in 1987.
However, the two sides have not been able to agree on a timetable. The
United States has proposed June or late July, while the Kremlin
suggested September.
"We've explained we can't have it in September" because that would
be fall too close to congressional elections in November, Reagan said.
"I've got news for them," the president was quoted as telling a group of
reporters at the WhiteHouse. If Gorbachevrefuses to go along with a U.S.
timetable for this year, Reagan said, "there won't be any '87 summit in
Elaborating later, White House spokesman Larry Speakes said, "The
president's viewpoint is the next summit will be held in Washington.
