NEW YORK - Two more pipe bombs
like the three left at Kennedy Airport
over the weekend were found in the
mail at diplomatic offices in New York
yesterday and safely removed. One of
the airport bombs had exploded earlier
and killed an airport employee.
Police experts raced around the city
checking other reports of "suspicious
devices" that proved unfounded.
THE EXPLOSIVES found yesterday
at the U.S.. Mission to the United
Nations and the Honduran Consulate
were delivered during the weekend by
mail, without return addresses.
The mission discovered its package
was unusual during a routine screening
of all deliveries. Police ordered both
buildings evacuated and "the bomb
squad was summoned.
The two pipe bombs were described
as "very sophisticated" devices and
Patrick Murphy, chief of police
operations, said they were "similar to
the bombs we found in Kennedy Air-
founded - were received during the
day, including one at the Empire State
Building and another at the federal of-
fice building in lower Manhattan.
A caller urging police to check the
contents of refrigerators in the building
resulted in a second evacuation of the
U.S. Mission. But nothing more
dangerous than a stale sandwich

Rican Armed Resistance Movement
called police at Kennedy airport
minutes before a bomb exploded Satur-
day in a men's restroom at the Pan
American Airways terminal.
ALEX McMILLAN, 20, of Queens, an
airport worker, was the only one in the
restroom when the bomb exploded at
9:40 a.m. He died 71/% hours later.
A second bomb was found eight hours
later near Gate 18 of the same terminal.
A third was found at 5:15 a.m. Sunday
in a women's restroom. Each incident
resulted in the cldosing of the terminal
for hours, delaying flights and forcing
evacuation of hundreds of people.
The incidents were believed to have
spawned a flurry of other bomb threats
at the airport, two of which prompted
Trans World Airlines to evacuate its
two terminals at Kennedy. An explosion
in a TWA terminal at LaGuardia Air-
port in December 1975 killed 11 people
and injured 75.
Resistance Movement has-said it was
responsible for two pipe bombs that ex-
ploded in lockers at Pennsylvania
Station in Manhattan on Dec. 21, 1980,
causing damage but no injuries.
The group is belived to be a splinter
organization of the FALN, the Puerto
Rican nationalist movement which has
claimed responsibility for more than a
score of bombings around the nation.
In a call to the New York Daily News
Sunday, a spokesman for the group said
the bombs were "in protest for im-
prisoned people being held in Chicago,"
and threatened additional bombings.
Ten members of the Puerto Rican
terrorist group FALN were convicted of
terrorism charges in Chicago.
Authorities said no group had
claimed responsibility for the latest
bombs, but they said the latest bombs
were similar to those found at the Pan
Am terminal.
Detective Joseph Tepedino of the
Bomb Squad said the discovery of the
new bombs makes the threat from the
Puerto Rican Armed Resistance
"much more serious."

Blood, sweat, and ears
Angry drivers sometimes talk the ears off policemen. But officer David
Grant says he stopped a motorist who tried to bite his ear off. "It's a first for
me," the motorcycle officer said after hospital treatment. Tuesday. Brad
Sutton of Wallecito, Calif., was booked into the Tuolumne County jail for in-
vestigaton of assaulting a peace officer, mayhem, and resisting arrest. Sut-
ton, who was cited on several traffic counts, was released after posting bail.
Grant said he chased a man through Sonora and gave him a ticket for going
43 mph in a 25 mph zone. In the argument that followed, Grant was kicked in
both knees, the driver was Maced and the two men struggled before the
motorist drove off, dragging Grant about 50 feet, authorities said. Grant said
he chased the man into Sonora at speeds approaching 75 mph before the
suspect stopped at Sonora Community Hospital for emergency treatment for
the tear gas. The two men continued the fight there. "When he got close, he
grabbed my ear with his teeth and tried to bite it off," as other officers
arrived, Grant said. "If his teeth were a little sharper, he might have gotten
Preventive Primate protection
Now that Gigi's pregnant, Sam just can't be allowed to play rough with her
anymore. So the gorillas have been separated for the good of the baby. Gigi
weighs 250 pounds and is expecting their baby in June. Sam, who veighs 300,
was tranquilized Monday and carted off to another cage by authorities
worried that Sam would belt his matein the belly. "When they play together,
they play rough," said Martha Bush-Mueller, director of behavioral resear-
ch at the Walter D. Sttone Memorial Zoo. "I suspect that behind all the
pushing and shoving that goes on between the two of them, there is a lot of af-
fection. They'll miss it," said Dr. William Satterfield, director of
biomedicinn for the Metropolitan District Commission zoos. It's not the zoo's
first primate pregnancy. On April 3, Betty, an orangutan, gave birth and a
contest will be held to name the baby.
