U.S. may act
against jailing of
Polish dissidents


Department said yesterday it is con-
sidering retaliatory actions against
the Polish government's trend of "in-
creasing_ repression," including the
jailing of three prominent Solidarity
Department spokesman Bernard
Kalb said, "we are deeply distressed
that three prominent figures in the
Solidarity movement, Adam Michnik,
Bogdan Lis, and Wladyslaw
Frasyniuk, have been sentenced to
terms ranging up to 3% years in
prison on charges of inciting public
THE PREPARED statement read
by Kalb said the trials and sentences
"conform to a pattern of increasing
repression in Poland" and the United
States is "exploring steps we might
take to respond to this action."
He did not immediately specify
what sort of actions are being con-
sidered, but the United States recen-

ctions invoked against Poland in 1982
because of the martial law crackdown

on the Solidarity movement. 4
The pattern of oppression, accor-
ding to the statement, includes a
significant increase in the number of
political prisoners in recent months
and the systematic harassment of
Solidarity activists, including Lech
The relations between the Catholic
church and the Polish regime have
become strained, the department
said. "These developments mock the
professed commitment of the Polish
government to national recon-
'Star Wars'
Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi heard
the administration's case for the
"Star Wars" research program
yesterday, but called the concept of a
space based anti-missile system
"very dangerous."
Gandhi also said the United States
has not been a reliable supplier of
weapons in the past and that he would
need assurances that any U.S.
agreement tosell his country weapons
would be iron-clad.
Gandhi spoke to reporters before
seeing Defense Secretary Caspar
Weinberger and other officials to geta
sales job on President Reagan's "Star
Wars" research program into a
space-based defense system.
Gandhi's defense minister,
Narasimha Rao, was meeting with
Weinberger later to explore the

which within a few microsecondswill
be able to identify maybe 10,000
missiles fired from different parts of
the world, identify which is a decoy,
which is a live warhead and then ac-
tually destroy that?" he asked.
"You need a huge computer. You ,
will need another huge computer to
program for that computer and you
will need a third computer which will
check the program that has been writ-
