MEANWHILE, Chin's supporters
have filed an appeal and are waiting to
hear if an appeals court of the State
Supreme Court will hear the case.
Former Michigan Supreme Court
Justice Thomas Brennan has agreed to
act as counsel in Chin's ease.
The American Citizens for Justice, a
primarily Asian-American group, was
unsuccessful in its attempt last month
to convince Kaufman to withdraw his
sentence.

initial setback, and has sent delegations

Senator dig
low NAA Ci
DETROIT (UPI) - Sen. Ernest
Hollings (D-South Carolina) said
yesterday his failing grade from the
NAACP was misleading, arguing he
has shown growth on civil rights issues
over the years.
Invoking the memory of another
southern politician who is now viewed as
a civil rights champion, Hollings said
that if Lyndon Johnson had been rated
before becoming president, "They
would have lynched him."
THE presidential hopeful commented
on the NAACP rating before the
Democratic National Committee and in
a news conference afterwards.
The NAACP gave the South Carolina
Democrat a failing grade recently,
saying he was on the right side of civil
rights issues only 39.8 percent of the
time.
Hollings called it "totally
misleading."

Sen. John Glenn (D-Ohio) arrived
to speak later in the day, despite initial
rumors that he would stay in

speaker and presidential hopeful Sen.

"(The case) has taken on wide im-
plications for Asian-Americans, and all
Americans," said Liza Chan, the South-
field attorney who worked for the
American Citizens for Justice to ask
Kaufman to reconsider his sentence.
More than 800 demonstrators rallied
at a May protest in Detroit's Kennedy
square, which included two busloads of
Chin supporters from Ann Arbor. A
similar rally was held in New York on
the same day.
Chan said the group will also continue
to aid the FBI's investigation.
The FBI is currently interviewing
witnessesfamily members, and frien-
ds, and is gathering police and lab
reports. FBI Special Agent John An-
thoy said the investigation should last
two to three weeks.

across the board and they put me in the
same tub with him," he said at a news
conference.
The Senator later said he was hurt by
the inclusion of votes he cast during the
1960s. "There are a lot of votes there
we've certainly turned the corner on,"
he said. "Over 30 yars, we've learned."
Congressman Mickey Leland, chair-
man of the DNC black caucus said,
"Considering where (Hollings) is
coming from he has a coniderable
record (on the minority affairs), par-
ticularly in the last few years."
"Historically he's had a lot of
problems," Leland added, however.
Blacks are growing more
sophisticated politically, the Texas
Democrat said, and many now sub-
scribe to the policy "no permanent
friends, no permanent enemies, just
permanent interests." "They are
forgiving but they also remember"
LeLand said.

educational emphasis in educational
fundamentals such as math, science,
foreign languages, and computer
science.
Glenn, who is aformer astronaut and
23-year veteran of the Marine Corps,
said that although he had originally
been against SALT II, he would lead the
fight against deployment of the MX
missile and would support nuclear ar-
ms reductions.
Like Mondale, Glenn also said he
would push for womens rights. Noting
that the average woman currently
makes less than the average high
school dropout on the job, Glenn added
he would like to see women receive
equal pay in the workplace.

Bomb blast kills 6 in Paris
PARIS - Terrorists set off a bomb at the Turkish Airlines counter at Orly
Aiport yesterday, and police said five people were slain and 60 were injured,
many of them seriously burned. Armenian extremists claimed respon-
sibility.
The same group - The Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Ar-
menia - also claimed responsibility for the assassination of a Turkish
diplomat in Brussels Thursday.
The blast occurred in a corner of the terminal that has about six check-in
counters on each side. The area of about 30 feet square was strewn with suit-
cases, some of them blown open. Bits of clothing and plastic bags were
thrown about on the floor in a large smear of blood.
Police said one unidentified dead man could have been the person carrying
the bomb - made of explosives attached to a gas bottle. Two of those who
died at the airport were identified as a Frenchman and a Turk. Two others
died later at hospitals and their nationalities were not immediately known.
Cult leader and aides arraigned
ALLEGAN - House of Judah "Prophet" William A. Lewis and four of his
followers were arraigned yesterday on charges of cruelty to the cult's
children, including a 12-year-old boy who died of repeated beatings.
Lewis, 61; his son William L. Lewis, 38; Theodore Jones, 39; Robert
McGee, 29; and Larry Branson, 29, face a maximum sentence of four years
in prison if convicted.
Lewis, self-appointed leader of black Israelite Jews, and the other four
were arrested Thursday night on a warrant issued by Allegan County
Prosecutor Fred R. Hunter III.
All 66 children in Lewis' religious encampment were removed under court
order and placed in temporary foster homes last week following an in-
vestigation into the July 4 death of 12-year-old John Yarbough.
Ethel Yarbough, 33, the boy's mother, pleaded innocent to a manslaughter
charge at her arraignment yesterday.
Lebanese troops win first battle
BEIRUT, Lebanon - The Lebanese army won the first major test of its
authority yesterday, flushing out nearly 100 Shiite Moslem militiamen in
nearly seven hours of heavy firing in west Beirut and hauling them off to jail.
Police reported one soldier and three militiamen killed and 100 soldiers
and 11 civilians wounded. The government television service said 90 people
were arrested.
Government and army spokesmen said Amal militiamen fired a bazooka
and maching gun bursts at the approaching soldiers, prompting the army
command to send in several tanks and armored personnel carriers.
The fighting spread throughout the area just inside the Moslem sector of
Beirut. The militiamen fired rifles, maching guns and rocket-propelled
grenades from windows, roofs and alleys while the tanks pounded their
positions. Then foot soldiers worked their way slowly and cautiously down
the narrow streets, clearing out the gunmen.
Hostages say Sudanese guerillas
terrorized remote African town
NAIROBI, Kenya - Sudanese guerrillas who held five Western hostages
for two weeks terrorized local inhabitants with beatings, whippings and by
threatening to throw employees of a local mission off a cliff, the freed
hostages said yesterday.
They said the rebels were inspired by the American hostage crisis in Iran.
The people of Boma, a remote area of southeastern Sudan, were relieved
July 8 when a Sudanese army commando team crushed the insurgents,
many of them local tribesmen fighting for regional autonomy, said John
Haspels, 38, of Lyons, Kan., wh6 ran the mission at Boma.
"After seeing the way they meted out justice in Boma, I see no justice in
their cause at all," Haspels said, referring to the Libyan-backed Liberation
Front of Southern Sudan, a group fighting to rid southern black Sudan from
domination by the Arab north.
Lease on Greek bases extended
ATHENS, Greece - Greece and the United States initialed an agreement
yesterday extending the lease on American bases in Greece for five years
and promising the Greeks $500 million in military aid next year..
Premier Andreas Papandreou told a news conference the agreement gives
the United States 17 months after the end of the period to dismantle its four
major bases and more than 20 minor installations.
But U.S. officials in Washington said the agreement would continue in for-
ce after the five years elapsed unless the Greeks give written notice of ter-
mination.
More than 3,000 leftist demonstrators marched through the streets of
Athens chanting anti-American slogans after the agreement was announced.
Extra guards were stationed outside the U.S. Embassy, and there was no
violence, police said.
The premier said the agreement "is an historic step in the establishment
of the principle that regardless of the size and strength of countries, Greece
is an equal member of the international community."
