HAYS DAILY NEWS PACK :i December 13, 1976 Soviet Overtures Rejected By Tito ' BELGRADE, Yugoslavia (UPI) — President Josip Broz Tito has dismissed a wide range of .Soviet overtures for closer ties and rejected the •Kremlin's request to increase servicing of its .warships at Adriatic ports, Yugoslav sources have disclosed. The sources said Sunday Tito feared that granting Russian vessels additional access to Yugoslavia's ports on the Adriatic could have led to the establishment of Soviet .naval bases on the warm , water seacoast. [ KAT LAMBS COLLEGE STATION, Tex. ' (UPI) — Fat lambs are more '. lender than those marketed ."with little or no fat, a Texas .Agricultural Extension .Service research project 'shows. The agency selected 40 jambs with varying degrees of \ 'fatness for (he study. Tito also "categorically refused," a request by Soviet leader Leonid I. Brezhnev to permit Russian warplanes to enter Yugoslav airspace unless a third country friendly to Belgrade 'asked for it, the sources said. Yugoslavia permitted Soviet aircraft to fly ovef its territory to deliver weapons to Angola last year and to Egypt during the 1973 Middle East war. The actions made the United States "extremely angry" with Yugoslavia, Western diplomatic sources said. Tito turned down these and other overtures made by Brezhnev in private talks Nov. 16 during the Soviet leader's three-day official visit, the Yugoslav sources said. Tito conveyed the content of those talks to his Communist party leadership Thursday. Despite favorable public statements in Moscow and Belgrade, the "dominant Yugoslav view of the Brezhnev visit was that the Kremlin tried to exert severe pressure on Yugoslavia to bring it closer to the Soviet fold, the sources said. The Yugoslav leadership was told that "Brezhnev came here to increase pressure on Yugoslavia in so many ways it is unbelievable," the sources said. "It is quite clear that the Yugoslav-Soviet ideological dispute will continue." However, the sources said, Yugoslavia generally .views the Brezhnev visit as useful and "very successful because both sides have a clear idea where they stand. Brezhnev talked in a tough way and with pressure." Yugoslavia broke with Moscow in 1948 and now fears that the Soviets may attempt to reassert their influence after the death of Tito, who is 84.

Council of State, was abducted from his office Saturday by a five-man commando team armed with submachine guns. Police Sunday identified the "Oct. l AntiFascist Resistance Groups" (GRAPO) as the kidnapers of Oriol. As a result of the kidnaping, right-wing extremists telephoned death threats to opposition politicians including Christian Democrat leader Joaquin Ruiz-Gimenez. Marcelino Camacho, leader of the Communist-dominated Workers' Commissions labor union, appeared with two lawyers ' before a court magistrate Monday to lodge a complaint that he was being followed by unknown mea The abduction came only four days before Spain's national referendum on political reform and sharply escalated political tension in the country. Rightwing'groups accused the government of letting Spain slide into a state of lawlessness. National security headquarters said GRAPO was "the military arm of the Reconstituted Communist party, which itself is a splinter group from the Spanish Communist party." The mysterious urban guerrillas, who murdered four policemen on Oct. 1, 1975, and since have been involved in a series of political bombings, said in a communique Oriol would be killed unless authorities granted free passage to Algeria to 15 "patriotic, and anli-Fascist prisoners." They included left-wing author and doctor Eva Forrest and Basque, guerrilla leader Ignacio "Wilson" Pere?. Bcotcgui, both allegedly implicated in the 197:) assassination of Premier Luis CaVrero Blanco. "Our organization is prepared and -ready for anything," the communique warned. After officials expressed doubt that GRAPO actually was responsible for the kid- naping, the guerrillas Sunday son! a handwritten note signed by Oriol to tTie newspaper El Pais. Police said the letter's "authenticity has been recoRnizod by members of his family." Mayor's Water Bill Paid KANSAS CITY, Mo. (UPI) — Several months ago James Staton shul off the water to the mayor's home and was transferred to a "dirtier" job-in the city water department. But when he got his old job back, he quit. Staton, 28, said he quit his water department job to continue his seminary work in Charlotte, N.C., and has taken a position beginning this week as associate pastor of a Concord, N.C., church. The incident, which some city officials called "Water- shutoffgate," began in October when Staton turned off the water at' the home of Mayor Charles B. Wheeler Jr. because ft $66 bill-was more yian HO days ' overdue. The. house was without water for six hours before the mayor sent one of his assistants to pay the late bill. A few days after the incident Staton was transferred to what ho called a "dirtier" job in the water department. Staton never blamed Wheeler for the transfer, but said his water department supervisors arranged the transfer as punishment for the embarrassment he caused them. But the supervisors say Staton was transferred because someone had to be, and he had the least seniority. Recently Staton was returned to his old job. "The grievance filed by the employe's union on my behalf, after the transfer, was successful," he said. "The city had no written notification, as required, for my transfer, so I was given my old job back. "The transfer was strictly a disciplinary thing," Stnton said. "It was wrong and (hat's why (hey were forced to give me my old job back." When the news about Stilton's treatment was made known, Wheeler's office was swamperl with critical letters and caustic telephone calls from people throughout the country and Canada. Station also received many letters, but none of his wished him a "lousy" day like one of Wheelers' said. "II meant a lot to my wife and me to know that we had that much public support behind us," Staton said. "1 hope this whole mess doesn't overshadow the fad that there are a lot of hard-working, honest employes in city tfoveniment." eore you tiy consider two good reasons to choose Once again, in a nationwide survey, TV service technicians give these opinions about Zenith: DIAGONAL The MALIBU • H1310C Slim-line styling.
