It also says the four conspired to defraud the government "by deceitfully exploiting for their own purposes and corrupting" the U.S. arms sales to Iran that were approved by President Reagan in an attempt to win release of American hostages in Lebanon. The U.S. government was cheated out of its rightful proceeds from the sale of $30 million dollars worth of weaponry to Iran, the indictment said. The government received only $12.2 million. All four defendants were charged with conspiracy, theft of government property and wire fraud, stemming from the diversion of arms-sale profits to the Contras to Swiss bank accounts controlled by Hakim and Secord. Together, these charges carry a maximum 25-year sentence and each oi the three counts has a potential fine of $250,000. The indictment raises the question of whether Reagan will issue pardons to those charged or convicted as a result of the Iran-Contra affair. Reagan, who has refused to rule out pardons for his former aides, "had no response" to the latest development in the scandal, said spokesman Martin Fitzwater. North, who was fired from his White House post in November 1986, was named in 16 counts. He also was charged with obstructing Attorney General Edwin Meese Ill's Nov. 21-23, 1986, investigation by making false statements and destroying National Security Council docu- Troops Continued From Page ments. Secord and Hakim were additionally charged with conspiring to pay North illegal gratuities by agreeing to set up a $200,000 Swiss bank account for the Marine officer's family and to pay for the installation of a security system at North's home in Great Falls, Va. North was accused of accepting the security system and pocketing $4,500 of $90,000 in travelers checks he received from a Contra leader to cover expenses of helping the rebels. The gratuities were offered to "encourage North to continue in his position" at the White House so Secord and Hakim "would continue to receive opportunities for substantial revenues and profits" from the arms sales, the indictment said. Secord and North agreed the "Enterprise" would keep most of the proceeds from the sale of TOW missiles to Iran in February 1986, the indictment said. Poindexter, a retired Navy rear admiral, also was charged with four counts of obstructing congressional inquiries and deleting National Security Council computer records shortly after the Iran-Contra affair unraveled in November 1986. Last week, another of Reagan's former national security advisers, Robert C. McFarlane, pleaded guilty to four misdemeanor charges of withholding information from Congress about the covert aid efforts. North also was charged with illegally using a tax-exempt foundation, the National Endowment for the Preservation of Liberty, to raise $3.2 million for the Contras. the NBC-TV "Today" show, said Nicaraguan forces battling the U.S.-backed Contras had reached the border with Honduras. "There's been a crossfire and there's been fighting alongside the border," he said, adding that "the operations have successfully beer, concluded and we don't plan to stay in the border region." Bendana said Nicaragua would fly reporters to the area later in the day. In addition, he said, "We've called for an OAS-UN mission to go to the site and let them establish what the facts are." "They can go and see for themselves," he said. "Don't take our word for it." From Capitol Hill, Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., said, "I think it's an overreacton. I think the notion that there's a real invasion is just ridiculous." "I think it's a move the president may come to regret because the spectacle of American troops moving into Central America in convoy, flying down there, I think is going to remind the American people of why they don't want this," he said on the NBC-TV "Today" program. "It's an overreaction," said Senate Majority Leader Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., earlier. "The Sandinistas have crossed over the border before and gone back." Some members of Congress noted that the deployment came as the administration was mak- ing a renewed push for new aid for the Contras. But Rep. Lee Hamilton, D-Ind., interviewed on "CBS This Morning," said he doubted the events would not change lawmakers' positions. 'We're very evenly divided in the House and in the Congress on aid, and I don't see that fundamentally changing," he said.;.. For the Republicans, Sen. Larry Pressler of South Dakota said on NBC that, "as predicted, as soon as the moneys were taken away from the freedom fighters, Ortega invaded another country." Pressler said Nicaragua had become "expansionistic." Rep. Jack Fields, R-Texas, said, "I don't think the president really had an alternative." Announcing the deployment late Wednesday, presidential spokesman Marlin Fitzwater called the troops' movement "a measured response designed to show our staunch support to the democratic government of Honduras at a time when its territorial integrity is being violated by the Cuban- and Soviet- supported Sandinista army." He said it also was "a signal to the governments and peoples of Central America of the seriousness with which the United States government views the current situation in the region," Congressional leaders had been briefed by telephone late Wednesday. Fitzwater said upwards of 2,000 Sandinistas are. in Honduras. Winning Lottery Numbers SPRINGFIELD, III.

The vehicle was found near another house half an hour later approximately three miles away from the woman's farm house. Cain said Kozlowski was spotted outside of the house, while Bilat remained in the vehicle. Both were apprehended at 12:30 p.m. "Bilat was in interrogation for three hours before he demanded a lawyer," Cain said. "Both of them speak very little English, but do know Polish." Police called on a White County resident who happened to speak Polish to interpret for them. The case is presently under investigation and Cain said his department is working closely with the Chicago Police Department. "They've checked their names, and the one phone number they were able to find leads to an apartment in Chicago full of gypsies, "Cain said. But that's not all, Cain said the white escape vehicle, a 1979 Chrysler with California license plates, is registered to a Romart Polanski. Obituaries Don Pollltt, Bus. Mgr. Bob Noren, Adv't. Mgr. J.

The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials rose 3.98 points to 2,088.30 by 10 a.m. on Wall Street. Advancing issues outnumbered losers by about' a 3-to-2 margin on the New York Stock Exchange, with 618 up, 390 down and 464 unchanged. Volume on the Big Board came to 27.18 million shares after the first half hour. Although the trade deficit widened slightly in January to J12.4 billion from J12.2 billion In December, market economists had expected an even greater gap. The news therefore provided an optimistic tone to stock trading. The NYSE's composite index of all its listed common stocks rose 0.17 to 151,45. The American Stock Exchange's market value index rose 0.29 to 297.80. On Wednesday the Dow Jones industrial average rose 16.91 to 2,064.32.
