In Madrid, a torw Ministry spokesman said that Ambassador Kieardo iVydro was being brought home for consultations about Kha-dafy'a reported threat to attack nations that are fast to U.S. military facilities. Several major bases in tpain support U S, operations and could play a role a an attack against Libya. By joining forces in the Tyrrhenian Sea northwe. of Sicily, the U.S. battle groups accompanying the aircraft carriers Coral Sea and America were ass.iv bling in a convenient staging area no more than o days' distance from the central Mediterranean aa north of Libya. However, even off Sicily, the fightts and bombers attached to the two 6th Fleet carriw would be within striking range of Libya if refueled t the air. In the military confrontation between the Uniht States and Libya two weeks ago. the two carriers, alori with the carrier Saratoga, edged toward the disputeo Gulf of Sidra before beginning previously announced' night operations. The Saratoga is now headed home ta May port, Fla. That exercise unfolded slowly and in a carefully cor structed set of steps to assert the United States' clairt that international maritime law allows it to navigaU freely in the gulf beyond 12 miles from the Libyat coast. Any new operation, however, would require even more precision but would most likely be conducted with considerably less warning, with surprise playing a key role. Until specific orders are received, the America was said by a Pentagon official to be "meandering" in the Tyrrhenian Sea while awaiting the Coral Sea to join it. The America had canceled a port visit to Cannes, on the French Riviera, and the Coral Sea was given orders to extend its deployment indefinitely, rather than begin a final exercise and then return to Norfolk, Va., after a six-month deployment. The Navy said that the America, carrying an 85-air-plane force made up of F-H Tomcat fighters and A-6 and A-7 attack aircraft, was the centerpiece of a 10-ship battle group that includes cruisers, destroyers and frigates. The Coral Sea, carrying 75 airplanes, most of them F-A-18 Hornet fighter-bombers, was escorted by seven other ships. In addition, five amphibious ships carrying approximately 2,000 Marines were on station in the Mediterranean, but one Pentagon officer said "they're not players" in any contemplated operation. A number of support ships, carrying fuel and supplies, were also arrayed in the region. The Navy said that it considered two carriers the minimum needed for an attack. "It gives you the ability to counter a multi-axis threat," one officer said. While inisisting that he knew of no specific plans, he said that the formation of the battle groups and the scathing criticism of Khadafy coming from administration officials led him to believe that "this one looks like we're going in and hitting," rather than probing the Gulf of Sidra as the aircraft and several vessels did on March 24 and 25. During that operation. Navy jets responded to missile attacks by Soviet -supplied SAM-5s by firing on a missile-guiding radar unit at Sirte. In addition, at least two Libyan missile boats were sunk by the Navy. The Sirte missile site was repaired, Pentagon officials said, and a second site at Benghazi to the east across the Gulf of Sidra was said by a Navy source Thursday to be so close to operational status that the Navy would consider it a threat. Two weeks ago, the Navy jets encountered little difficulty in dealing with the SAM-Ss, striking their radar with high-speed, anti-radiation missiles fired from a distance of 40 to 60 miles, the Navy said. As portrayed by military officials, a strike against an inland target would most likely begin with an attack on the missile sites, using missiles against the radar antennas and bombs against the missiles and launchers, to strip away the first line of Libyan air defense. That would be followed quickly by a second wave of airplanes targeting Libyan airfields with iron bombs to destroy runways or aircraft still on the grouni. The Libyan air force includes Soviet-built MiG-23 ani MiG-25 fighters, some of them fiown by Syrian pilots. "They're not flying clunkers," an Air Force officer said. Reno budget From paga 1A is running for a U.S. congressional seat. . Some council members welcomed the reprieve from making a decision. "We're not going to make a decision (on layoffs) until the last possible moment," Vice Mayor Dave Howard said. "There's not going to be a decision made until possibly Tuesday night," when the public hearing on the budget is scheduled. Later in the day, Fire Chief Richard Minor presented his department's budget-balancing recommendations, which include the layoffs of eight firefighters and dismantling of a ladder company. Minor said the loss could force the department to reduce the number of units that respond to a typical house fire. The Police and Fire departments make up more than half the proposed $39.5 million general fund budget. As a result, they have been forced to take the brunt of the cutbacks. Moreover, because most of their money goes to personnel, officials say layoffs are almost inevitable. Bradshaw said he may be able to avoid some layoffs because of attrition between now and July 1, when the fiscal year starts. But the council needs to make a number of tough decisions long before then. The city must submit a balanced budget to the state Department of Taxation no. later Bally takeover From page 1A Grand-Las Vegas has 137 table games and 1,017 slot machines in its 62,500-square-foot casino. The hotel names will chang? to Bally's Grand-Reno and Bally's Grand-Las Vegas. Board chairman Barton Jacka said the state is investigating and acting on the license application in sections because of pressure from the two giant corporations to meet certain deadlines. "This has been one of the most difficult applications I have participated in," Jacka said. "This has truly been a learning experience. In my years of public life people know that I am willing to experiment with new ideas. I have experimented with a bifurcated investigation and I will not do it again. But it has been a thorough investigation and no stones were unturned to my knowledge." The board imposed more than a dozen conditions on the Bally gambling license. One requires that Dorothy Attanasio must Jpke an immediate leave of absence than May 1, and city staff members have recommended deep personnel cuts to bring expenditures in line with projected revenues. The city's latest budget estimate predicts general fund revenues out of which most city services are funded of $39.5 million, compared to this year's $42 6 million. Recently imposed cutbacks, such as the closure of the Raleigh Heights fire station, have contributed to an expected surplus of $1.9 million for this fiscal year. But without layoffs in the police, fire and public works departments or some other alternative devised by the council the city faces a $1.1 million deficit next fiscal year, officials said. With layoffs, Acting City Manager Julie Betz and Acting Finance Director Bruce Brooks have projected a surplus next year of $147,000, barely enough to meet contingencies. Bradshaw said the situation in the Police Department worsened in the last few days because of two things: A possible contract settlement with the Reno Police Protective Association, the union that represents rank-and-file police officers, and loss of funding for the privately run Civil Protective Custody program, a detoxification center for people arrested for intoxication. He said the settlement with the RPPA could cost the city about $150,0C0 more than it budgeted. He would not say what that budgeted amount was. as executive vice president of Bally's Park Place casino in Atlantic City and file an application for a finding of suitability in Nevada by April 17. Another requires that Richard Gillman, 54, chief executive officer of the Park Place, stay out of Nevada and exert no influence on the Bally Grands in Nevada until the state completes its investigation. Jacka refused to be specific on problems discovered by Nevada investigators relating to Attanasio and Gillman. Attorney Keith Lee, representing Attanasio, said it probably involved a New Jersey grand jury probe into alleged kickbacks. He said the grand jury probe was completed in 1982 and that Attanasio learned a year later that her name was mentioned during the proceedings. He said she was not a target. Lee said since then Attanasio has been granted a gambling license by New Jersey that was renewed and he is confident she can be approved in Nevada. But a Nevada gaming source indicates a state grand jury probe involving Attanasio still is under way in New Jersey and that Nevada agents found out about it 7 But he said union leaders have been told that the shortfall may have to be made up by laying off up to five officers, who eacn cost the city roughly $30,000 a year. Association President Ron Dreher could not be reached for comment. Association members are reportedly voting on the contract today. Bradshaw said the detox center, run by the Northern Area Substance Abuse Council, reduces the burden on the already overcrowded city jail, where drunks would otherwise have to be taken. The center this year received $50,000 from the city's general fund, something the city cannot afford next year, officials say. Instead, the department has asked for $75,000 in federal Community Development Block Grant funds. But this week the Citizens Policy Planning Advisory Commission, which reviews block grant applications, recommended cutting that allocation to $4,900, Bradshaw said. He said the money could be made up by laying off three additional officers. Commission chairwoman Martha Gold could not be reached for comment. The police chief said he considers the center essential. Without it, the city could be opening itself up to lawsuits because of jail overcrowding. "I really feel very strongly that that program has to continue if we're going to maintain some control over our liability," Bradshaw said. only through their investigative work rather than cooperation from Bally or officials in New Jersey. . James Rochford, vice president of corporate affairs and government regulations for Bally Manufacturing Corp., was criticized by board member Mike Rum-bolz for hiding a file in his desk drawer, which apparently related to the grand jury probe. Rochford, former Chicago chief of police, denied the allegation. "It was not a file but a memo to myself based on rumor and hearsay," said an angry Rochford. "Your investigators never asked me for anything specific. If they had asked they would have got it immediately." Board member Guy Hillyer said he would oppose the Bally application unless the conditions regarding Attanasio and Gillman were imposed. The control board recommended approval of applications Thursday for Bally Manufacturing Corp.; Bally Intermediate Sub. Inc., composed of six companies; Bally's Grand Inc.; Grand Resorts Inc. doing business as Bally's Grand-Las Vegas; and Reno Resorts Inc. doing business as Bally's Grand-Reno. i Nuclear test From page 1A U.S. arsenal and to develop warheads for new weapons. Thursday night, on Soviet television news, political observer Valentin Zorin repeated Gorbachev's remarks of March 29 when the Soviet leader said U.S. failure to halt its tests would end the moratorium, Bohlen reported. "We regret it, but we will be forced to do so, since we cannot forgo our own security and that of our allies," said Zorin, quoting Gorbachev. And a commentator on the nightly television news program, Vremya, said the U.S. test would force renewed Soviet nuclear testing. "The explosion in Nevada is another demonstration of the (Reagan) administration's criminal contempt of the calls of the United States and world public to join in the Soviet Union's moratorium on all nuclear explosions," Tass stated. "The April explosion . . . can be seen as the United States crossing of the 'nuclear Rubicon,' which, unlike the historical precedent, attests not to the present administration's resolution but to its moral and political weakness and its unwillingness to take the first step to bridling the arms race in the past five years." Last month, after eight U.S. tests while the Soviet Union conducted none, Gorbachev announced that he would resume testing if the United States exploded another weapon after March 31. A Tass military expert said Thursday's Cocaine case From page 1A one person (with a) minimum of a kilo, then we're talking." A kilogram of cocaine, worth an estimated $50,000, amounts to about 2.2 pounds. Later in the conversation with the agent, Rueckl allegedly said, "If I'm going to get into trouble, it's going to be for something worth it." White also waived off allegations of agent misconduct, claiming if they hadn't caught Rueckl, the 36-year-old skin-cancer surgeon would have had an opportunity "to expand his drug-related, criminally disposed and rapacious propensities." White asked Reed to deny a pretrial hearing concerning the allegations of misconduct and entrapment. White also denied Rueckl's rights were violated because agents allegedly explosion does not mean that the Soviets will end efforts for a ban on all nuclear testing. Gorbachev has said that progress toward such an agreement is one of his goals for the next summit with Reagan. The U.S. test, planning for which began almost two years ago, had been scheduled Tuesday, the day that Reagan received Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin for his farewell visit and a discussion about the next summit. The shot was delayed because of technical problems reportedly in electrical circuits, according to sources. A delay Wednesday was attributed to weather, more technical problems and the presence of anti-nuclear protesters on the 1,300-square-mile test site. Thursday, DOE officials said 22 protesters were at the site's main entrance when the explosion occurred at 6:08 a.m. PST, two hours earlier than expected. Authorities reported more than 100 arrests during three days of protests at the site. Another underground test is scheduled next week, and one is planned for April 23-25, informed sources said. The latter is expected to test the reliability of a weapon under production and a new on-site monitoring system called Cortex, used to measure the yield of the explosion. Last month, Reagan invited Gorbachev to send scientists to the latter test to observe the monitoring device. Reagan said then that acceptance of his invitation could lead toward ratification of the 1974 threshold test ban treaty. In a recent speech, Gorbachev said he would not send observers. Washington Post dragged their feet in bringing the doctor before a federal magistrate after the Jan. 24 arrest. He said agents allowed Rueckl to call his doctor's office staff and send them home early to avoid embarrassment during a search. And under instructions from Reed, agents did not seize Rueckl's patient fiies, a dictate by the judge to avoid unnecessary publicity for those unrelated to the case. Also charged in the case are Delbert G. Loose, 37, Sun Valley, and Delbert Garri-gan, 34, Reno. Rueckl is charged with 13 counts in the indictment, while Loose and Garrigan are charged with five counts each. The trio are specifically charged with trying to sell 1.5 ounces of cocaine to a drug agent, although a pound of cocaine was found at Garrigan's Incline Village home when he was arrested. Rueckl's father, Dr. Frank Rueckl, is a prominent Reno gynecologist. 4 1
