Faisal ended three-day visit to Jordan and flew to Egypt for talks with President Anwar Sadat. - kf wwiwn U.S. to mend Latin fences ' Combined News Services WASHINGTON -- Secretary of State Henry Kissinger may visit five South American nations next month on his first official venture into a region upset by U.S. trade policy, alleged CIA meddling and a diplomatic snub from Kissinger himself. Although State Department officials say the trip is "still on the drawing board", Latin diplomats said they expect Kissinger to visit Venezuela, Brazil, Peru, Chile and Argentina in mid-to-late Feburary. Argentina and Chile, in fact, have jumped the gun by announcing he will visit around Feb. 18. It would be the first official trip to South America for Kissinger, a man famed for his personal diplomacy in the Middle East and Asia who has never gone south of Panama on official diplomatic business. The tour would be a fence-mending mission--and there are plenty of hard feelings to be soothed. One is Latin American anger over the terms of the recently-passed U.S. foreign trade act, which many Latin nations consider to be discriminatory- Air crash questions WASHINGTON -- The National Transportation Safety Board opens a weeklong hearing next Monday into the worst U.S. air disaster of 1974, the Dec. 1 crash of a TWA jetliner that killed 92 persons and touched off a major controversy o v e r air traffic control procedures. NTSB hearings routinely seek clues to the cause of any fatal crash. But behind the TWA hearing Jan. 27 lies a second set of questions, broader than those pertaining to a single crash, that have significant implications for the safety of every air traveler. Thaat set of question deals with what air traffic controllers mean when giving landing · instructions to a pilot as opposed to what pilots think the instructions mean. Evidence emerging from the crash indicates there may be conflicting interpretations. TWA's Flight 514 craashed just below the top of a Blue Ridge mountain range while trying to land. at Dulles Airport in Washington. Energy coordinator WASHINGTON v -- The new Energy Research and Development Administration, which could be the forerunner of a new Cabinet department, begins operation today. The agency brings under one roof the energy research activities of the old Atomic Energy Commission, Department of the Interior, Environmental Protection Agency and National Science Foundation. It has a planned five-year budget of more than $10 billion and will employ 7,124 persons, of whom some 6,000 will come from the AEC and 1,100 from Interior. Combined News Services Jan. 14,1963 was unusually cold for Montgomery, Ala. The high was 22 degrees. But t h e r e stood George Wallace on the steps of the state capitol decked out in top hat and overcoat. "Let us rise to the call of freedom-loving blood that is in us and send our answer to the tyranny t h a t c l a n k s its chains upon the South. "In the name of the greatest people that have e v e r trod this earth, I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny... and I say ... segregation now. segregation tomor- r o w , segregation forever." And the crowd roared. Wallace said Alabama would submit no more to w h a t he called federal tyranny. It was Wallace's first inauguration as governor of Alabama. He spoke for 35 frigid minutes -- much longer than had been exp e c t e d . He departed a number of times from his prepared text. Wallace t a k e s o f f i c e again t o d a y for an unprecedented third term. He has changed greatly in the past 11 years. In his new cabinet will be a black member, the first since R e c o n s t r u c t i o n Days. He is Jesse J. Lewis, a Birmingham newspaper publisher, who will become Wallace's new coordinator of highway and traffic safety. Lewis says Wallace once told him Greek Cypriots mourn dead LIMASSOL, Cyprus -- Two thousand mourners marched peacefully Sunday in the funeral cortege of a Greek Cypriot student killed in an outbreak of anti- British and anti-American demonstrations that included an attack on the American Embassy. In the capital of Nicosia, scores of Greek Cypriot police and armed troops were on guard at the American Embassy, British High Com- · mission office and the British Council library, which were ransacked and partially burned during rioting Saturday. But "apart from three small overnight explosions at British targets, all was reported quiet on the divided island. Panicos Demetrious, 18, was killed Friday when he was hit by a British armored car during demonstrations at the main entrance of the British Akro- tiri air base, six miles from Limassol. · The rioting was to protest the British ' government's decision to permit 10.000 - T u r k i s h Cypriot refugees f r o m the · southern C'reek-eontrolled part of the island to be airlifted to Turkey, fearing this would lead to partition of the island. Dock strike settled NEW DELHI -- Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's government reached agreement early today with striking dock workers who crippled the nation's ports .' for four days, delaying unloading of badly needed food and petroleum im, ports. Union leaders said the 200.000 dock workers would return to work at ; once. No details of the settlement were immediately a v a i l a b l e but t h e announcement ended the possibility of a major confrontation between the government and the unions. For the second day, army reserves and some naval units unloaded food grains, oil and kerosene at some of the ports. But they could take care of only a handful of vessels while more t h a n 200 ships waited for a berth at the country's eight ports. Phnom Penh shelled PHNOM PENH, Cambodia -- Four rockets fired into the heart of this beleaguered capital early today killed four civilians and wounded eight others, police reported. One of the 107mm rockets exploded in the compound of the vacant secondary school and authorities canceled today's classes in fear of further attacks. The rockets fell in Phnom Penh hours after 15 of the Chinese-built missiles peppered the city's airport and surrounding villages, leaving a toll of five dead and 16 wounded. India, Pakistan quake NEW DELHI -- Strong earth tremors shook northern India and Pakistan on Sunday, officials said, but there were no immediate reports of damage or casualties. The New Delhi Seismological Laboratory said the quakes were centered about 350 miles north of the Indian capital, in the mountainous region of Kashmir. The tremors were of the same intensity as the earthquake that claimed more than 5,500 lives in the northern Karakoram mountain region of Pakistan on Dec. 28. The Uppsala Seismological Institute in Sweden said the quake measured 7.2 on the Richter scale. Lib foes to die MOGADISHU. Somalia -- Ten men have been sentenced to death for opposing a new law giving women equal rights with men, the government said Sunday. The convicted men were accused of spreading propaganda against the law at religious ceremonies in mosques. They were charged by the National Security Court with subverting state authority and creating national disunity. Religious officials previously held that men had more rights than women, including a 2-1 ratio in their favor in inheritance settlements. Political refugees SANTIAGO, Chile -- Some of the leftists who took asylum in the Italian Embassy after Chile's coup 16 months ago finally will be allowed to leave for Italy, diplomatic sources said Sunday. They said Humberto Sotomayor, one of the top leaders in the clandestine Revolutionary Left Movement, was among 46 persons "scheduled to be flown to Rome today aboard a Swissair jetliner. There are 210 refugees still living in the Italian compound. Many have been there since the coup against the government of the late Marxist President Salvador, 1973. Roman plaza car-free ROME -- Romans these days are strolling through a tranquil plaza that until a week ago was crammed with bumper-to-bumper traffic. The plaza, in front of the Pantheon, is part of a 120- acre arena closed last week to automobiles. It was the fourth section of Rome's historic center to be turned over lo pedestrians. The section contains both houses of parliament and the Rome Stock Exchange as well as the Pantheon. begins 3rd term Lucky star ALABAMA Gov. Gorge Wallace, with wife Cornelia, reads over inaugural address outside Montgomery statehouse Sunday. that he (Wallace) was a segregationist. The black publisher says he doesn't t h i n k W a l l a c e is any more. There were 140 bands and 60 floats at Wallace's f i r s t inaugural parade. Because of the energy shortage and the lagging economy, there will be no inaugural p a r a d e this year, and no inaugural ball. --AP Wireplwto But there will be music on the capitol steps by a National Guard band and the choir f r o m predominantly black Alabama State University in Montgomery. He will make the traditional address about noon, and he may have something to say then about the role, if a n y , he expects to play in the 1976 presidental election. Wallace remains paralyzed in both legs from an assassintation attempt during the 1972 presidential campaign. He will make his speech behind a specially constructed lectern with leather straps to help maintain his balance. In the summer of 1963, Wallace made his famous stand in the doorway of the U n i v e r s i t y of Ala- b a m a to protest the admittance of two black students. Last year, he crowned a black coed as homecoming queen at the university. Although a shoo-in for a t h i r d t e r m , Wallace act i v e l y sought support from black voters for the first time in his political career. Some black leaders endorsed him and he received m a n y black votes. The governor appeared unexpectedly last year at a meeting of southern b l a c k mayors in Tuskegee. After he was re-elected last Nov. 5, Wallace spoke to a group of black c h u r c h m e n at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was pastor there when he gained world fame as the leader of the Montgomery bus boycott. Mediator President Ford apparently is "on the verge" of naming W.J. Usery, head of the Federal Mediation Service, as secretary of labor, Newsweek magazine reported in its current issue. Mrs. Ray Maret has $8,500-less taxes--in her pocket and six years of irritation. She was a mail- this-back-for-money contest winner and she said she has earned every penny. The hitch as far as Mrs. Maret is concerned is that the contest organizers gave her name and hometown to prospective contestants as a lucky winner. She said she received 40 phone calls a day for the first year and even now--6 years later--averages 13 or 14 a day. "They .want to know how I won, who I know, how they. can win, how much tax I had to pay on the money and what I did with it," she said. "It n e v e r stops. I wish it , would." She said she didn't have much of a secret to winning. "You know how your mailbox is always flooded with those letters telling you to enter this or that contest now and win a fixed income for life 'or some other great prize?" she said. "Well, I never answered them. I threw them away. "I think once or twice if there was a return envelope with a stamp on it, I may have returned it. Despite the problems the money brought her, Mrs. Maret said ',the money was awfully nice! "I no longer thi-pw a w a y those contest announcements," she said.
