convention to adopt a rule binding
delegates to vote for the candidate they
were elected to support. Backers of
Sen. Edward Kennedy want the
delegates released, but Carter said that
would disenfranchise the 19 million
Democrats who voted in the primaries.
The president's remarks came as
Carter and Kennedy's forces met for
three and one-half hours to discuss the
schedule for a rules challenge on,
delegate voting at the Aug. 11-14
Democratic National Convention in
New York City.,
Efforts to relax the rule represent an
11th-hour attempt by Kennedy suppor-
ters and other dissident Democrats to
wrest the Democratic Party's presiden-
tial nomination from Carter.
BUT, SAID the president, 'no matter
what rule is chosen, Fritz Mondale and
I will be the nominees at the conven-
tion. That is not the point. The point is
honesty, truth, principle." .
He aid the convention will be "open"
because every delegate will be able to
debate and vote on the rules.
In another development, Carter
campaign committee chairman Robert
Strauss issued a statement saying he
was displeased with the Thursday
meeting between Kennedy and in-
dependent presidential candidate John
"I WAS disappointed and saddened at
the announcements following the
meeting yesterday between John An-
derson and Senator Kennedy," Strauss

NEW DELHI, India (AP) - Afghan--

creased combat and rising casualties,

situtaion of "army against army" in-
stead of "army against guerrillas," a
Western diplomatic source here said.

Authorities conducted what they

young New Jersey boys at a camp for
children with sickle cell anemia were
forced to perform "involuntary deviate
sexual acts."
THE DISCLOSUE followed an
unrelated probe at Camp William Penn,

allegations sexual misconduct occurred
there and campers were beaten by

The Soviets, estimated to number

moved into Afghanistan last December
to support the Kabul government's
fight against Moslem rebels but they,
too, have run into fierce resistance.
The Ghazni revolt and attempted
rebellions of other Afghan army units
last week stemmed from President
Babrak Karmal's attempt to purge
rival Khalq faction members from his
ruling Marxist party and government.

The Mon Who Would Re Kin '/f
Two former English soldiers (MICHAEL CAINE and SEAN CONNERY) decide to
carve out their own territory in late 19th century India. Outrageously disguised
as a holy man and his servant, they climb mountains and cross glaciers to
penetrate the forbidden territory where, through luck and coincidence, they
realize their highest dreams. As lighthearted and implausible an adventure as
you're likely to see, with enough romantic nonsense in it to enchant the child

story y Kip ling. Filmed in Afghanistan. (129 min) 35 mmprin .7 & 9:30
