Actor says he has to duck IRA bombs LONDON CAP)'-- Irish actor RICHARD HARRIS said Wednesday he has spent three years ducking bombs" from the Irish Republican Army since launching a personal crusade against its American fund-raisers; Harris, 58, said during a High Court libel hearing that he frequently gete death threats and receives police protection during his visits to London. "Someone has to make a stand f&t 1 " 5 , 1 .,,^ 6 IRA '" Har "s said. The killing must stop. I've had six threats on my life so far this year and now they will start again becauseof what I am saying." Harris has addressed Irish- American audiences in the United States in a bid to halt financial support for violent causes in Northern Ireland. Harris made his revelations under cross-examination by lawyer RICHARD HARTLEY who is defending the tabloid Star newspaper against claims that it libeled Harris. Harris said the newspaper falsely implied that he used his own "half-baked or amateurish" methods in attempting to cure his son Jamie's addiction to heroin He added that he never gave on- the-record interviews about his private life. The lawyer rejoined that Harris gave an interview to a Star journalist earlier this year in which he discussed, among other subjects his family and his views on the People very seriously and the Irish Embassy has told me to leave London because of them." Harris most recently has been seen on the.American stage in a cross-country revival of the musical "Camelot." His movie appearances include "This Sporting Life,; 1 "A Man Called Horse" and "Cromwell." • • • LONDON (AP) - ROBERT COHAN, the American choreographer who pioneered the modern dance movement in Britain was invested Wednesday as an honorary commander of the Order of the British Empire for his contribution to the arts.
