Queen's visitor
stuns security,
Scotland Yard

LONDON (AP)- "A man was
arrested in Buckingham Palace on
Friday morning after entering the
bedroom of Her Majesty the Queen,"
Home Secretary William Whitelaw said
yesterday in an extraordinary House of
Commons statement recalling earlier
times when court intrigue put many a
British monarch in peril.
An unconfirmed report in the Daily
Express said the intruder sat on the bed
of Queen Elizabeth II around 3 a.m.
Friday and the two talked quietly for 10
minutes until the monarch gained his
confidence. The 56-year-old queen then
summoned a footman on the pretense of
getting the prowler a cigarette, and the
servant hustled him away, the report
WHITELAW promised an immediate
inquiry, describing himself as
"shocked and staggered" by the breach
of royal security. He gave no details of
the incident, but told the Commons "the
House will admire the calm way in
which Her Majesty responded to what
Lawmakers and the press asked
"How could it happen?," and the furor
mounted when government spokesman
Lord Elton told the House of Lords that
the intruder was the same man charged
Saturday with a June 7 palace break-in.
In the first incident, Michael Fagan,
30, a drifter who entered the dock at
Bow Street Magistrates' Court barefoot
and in a dirty T-shirt and blue jeans,
was accused of stealing a half-bottle of
wine from the palace.
Whitelaw said the state prosecutor
was studying possible charges connec-

Crime doesn 't advertise
I F YOU WANT to be a stickup man, don't wear a T-shirt with your name on
it. A man, carrying an automatic pistol and wearing a T-shirt with the
name "James" printed on the back, and accompanied by a woman,
recently robbed the Stadium Park West iarage in St. Louis of about $100.
Three minutes after the holdup, a description of the robbers was broadcast
over the police radio. Officer Gary Barta took a guess at the direction the
robbers might be headed and as he drove down the street, he saw a couple
fitting the description of the suspects headed toward him. Barta ordered the
couple to halt and lie on the ground. As they did, Barta notice the man's
shirt. On the back of the shirt was the name "James." Barta arrested the
couple and recovered the money and the weapon. Q

Chinese kibor program


PEKING (AP)- The Re-Education-
through-Labor Band strikes up. The
"hooligan" who plays the fiddle
obediently raises his bow. Out come the
cheerleader placards and out rolls the
song with the toe-tapping Latin beat.
"Oh, the party's policy of re-
education through labor is good for
HUNDREDS OF hooligans, bicycle
thieves, purse snatchers, gang fighters
and sex offenders sing and sway or
listen to the ideological music that is
supposed to help save them. Black-
boards warn against reactionary
speeches and pornography. One black-
board bears the words to a song they
must learn: "Socialism is good, com-
munism is sure towin."
This show of compulsory inspiration
and benevolent discipline was staged
yesterday for foreign journalists who
visited the Tuan He Re-Education-
through-Labor Farm, a facility 12 miles
from Peking that houses 2,410 offen-

the farms, a key component of China's
socialist disciplinary system.
THE PROGRAM of re-education

through labor lies somewhere between
a tough reform school and a stint in
state prison. The offenders are serving
one-to-four-year terms, but none has
been tried: They were ordered to the
suburbs by the city police and the
municipal Labor Re-Education Com-
These farms, which have no bars, are
not part of China's system of labor
reform camps for convicted criminals
and some political offenders. Most of

offenses are not considered serious
enough to warrant prosecution and im-
Two slogans written in red appear at
the farm's entrance: "Repent and turn

love their motherland, love labor, ob-
