NORFOLK, Va. - A third mem-
ber of a Navy family snared in an
espionage net was jailed without
bond yesterday on charges he
helped his brother and nephew ina
long-running scheme to sell U.S.
defense secrets to the Kremlin.
Arthur Walker, a retired sub-
mariner described as "Mr.
Average, just like your next door
neighbor," was ordered into jail in
nearby Virginia Beach, pending a
bond hearing Monday, by U.S.
Magistrate Gilbert Swink.
An FBI affidavit presented in
Norfolk federal court said Walker,
a 50-year-old retired lieutenant
commander, admitted passing
Navy secrets to his brother, John
Walker Jr., to be turned over to

DAR member settles
lawsuit over cookbook
WASHINGTON - Faith Tiberio,
an outspoken member of a group
known for its silent good works,
reached a settlement with the
Daughters of the American
Revolution yesterday in her $2

million lawsuit over who gets the
credit for a DAR cookbook.
But the $20,000 settlement does
not end Tiberio's problems with
the organization she has been a
member of for 40 years. She faces
disciplinary action for speaking
out against a DAR policy criticized
as being designed to keep out black
members.
In April 1984, six months after
she filed her cookbook suit, Tiberio
spoke at a news conference to
protest a proposed amendment to
the society's bylaws, which was
seen by some as an attempt to
prevent blacks from joining the
DAR.
Democrats request
aid for refugees
WASHINGTON - A proposal for
refugee aid and diplomatic
negotiations offered yesterday by
House Democrats again rejects

prepared to stand up for the
security of our hemisphere," Rep.
David Bonior (D-Mich.) told repor-
ters. "But we cannot let our ideals,
so long symbolized by the Monroe
Doctrine, to be used as a cloak'for
gunboat diplomacy."
