Nation/World The Salina Journal Monday, January 6,1986 Page 5 Police foil $18 million art burglary Study documents gun use in crimes NEW YORK (AP) — Three men alleged to be part of an international art theft ring were arrested Sunday as they tried to steal $18.5 million worth of antique art treasures from a packing company, police said. The men, including a Manhattan antiques dealer, were captured by undercover investigators as they loaded two wooden crates of art works into two getaway cars, Deputy Inspector Ronald Fenrich said. Among the 105 treasures recovered by police were dozens of gold Persian antique jars, urns, coins, vases, sculptures and jewels, some dating to the 6th and 7th centuries B.C. The most expensive item was believed to be a gold tureen, decorated with bas relief bulls, which Fenrich said would sell wholesale for about $3.5 million. Using sledgehammers and crowbars, the three men allegedly broke through cement walls of the Regency Worldwide Packing Co. in the borough of Queens and emerged about 25 minutes later carrying the two crates. Investigators, who had been watching the three for four months, received a tip and were waiting when the men tried to leave. Police identified the suspects as Thomas May, 52; Daniel Kohl, 44, both of Queens, and Ned- jatollah Sakhai, 48, of Old Westbury. All three were charged with burglary. Fenrich said Sakhai, who owns an antique store in Manhattan, also was charged with possession of a dangerous weapon after a loaded revolver was found at his store. The deputy inspector said the art works were shipped from a London dealer via Swissair late last week. They were to be held at the packing company and transferred to a warehouse for further distribution sometime this week. Fenrich said the men would have had to have had inside information on where and when the works were being shipped. He did not elaborate on where the information could have come from but said investigators do not think it came from anyone working at the packing company or U.S. Customs. The packing company is a U.S. bonded firm often used by customs officials in New York. Fenrich said art works shipped from overseas are held in warehouses until the owner picks them up or arranges delivery. The packing company was protected by alarms, which were activated as the men left the building, Fenrich said. The suspects were part of a "group of people operating internationally, who are involved in burglaries and robberies of Oriental rug stores, art dealers, insurance fraud, etc.," Fenrich said. Fenrich declined to say how many people were part of the ring or put a monetary figure on the operation. Fenrich said the ring "hires various people to go in and conduct various burglaries and robberies." The stolen items are then sold to a fence who resells them. The London dealer, who was not identified, is not a suspect "at this time," said police Sgt. Harry Sakin. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the art robbery of greatest value was the 1974 theft of 19 paintings worth $19.2 million from the Irish home of Sir Alfred and Lady Beit. In 1964, antiquities then worth $23 million were recovered from three warehouses near the Pyramids in Egypt. WASHINGTON (AP) — Guns were involved in 13 percent of the estimated 65.3 million rapes, robberies and assaults that occurred from 1973 through 1982, the Justice Department said Sunday. The department's Bureau of Justice Statistics, surveying violent crime trends based on interviews with victims, also found that knives were used in 11 percent of the attacks, other weapons such as sticks and stones in 13 percent. In about 5 percent of the violent crimes by armed offenders, the bureau said, the assailant had more than one type of weapon. The bureau found that offenders armed with guns completed 79 percent of all robberies attempted between 1973 and 1982, compared to a 57 percent completion rate by unarmed criminals. About half of the rapes by offenders with guns were completed, it said, while only 28 percent of the rapes attempted by the unarmed were consummated. "Going Bald?' Here's Help, If Cause is Sebum r Liftoffset for flight of shuttle CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — The countdown advanced smoothly Sunday toward today's launch of the space shuttle Columbia for a once-aborted flight that will be the first of three straight shuttle missions to study Halley's comet. Liftoff of | the r e f-' urbished. shuttle on its first flight in more than two years I was sched- „ , uled for 6:05 Hawle y a.m., with a crew that includes a Florida congressman and the first Hispanic-American astronaut. Shuttle weather forecasters said conditions should be excellent, with only a few scattered clouds and seven-mile visibility. Mission commander Robert Gibson and his six crew members boarded the spaceship Dec. 19 and were just 14 seconds from liftoff when a computer stopped the countdown because an oversensitive electronic part sent a false signal that a turbine in a rocket steering mechanism was spinning too fast. Rep. Bill Nelson; a Florida Democrat whose district includes Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Center, will be aboard Columbia as a congressional observer. The other crew members are pilot Charles Bolden, native Salinan Steve Hawley, Robert Cenker and Franklin Chang-Diaz, a Costa Rican- born physicist who is a naturalized American citizen. Hostage forced to watch inmates 'carve up' accused prison informer MOUNDSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) One of the guards held hostage by rioting prisoners was forced to watch as jeering inmates "carved up" a prisoner accused of being an informer and another guard saw an inmate "butchered," other guards said Sunday. "They made him watch. They put on a show for him," one guard said. The body of inmate Kent Slie, a convicted child molester and killer, was then dragged up and down a cellblock as other prisoners kicked and spit on it, guards said. The guards said the correctional officer was Russell Lorentz, 42, of Moundsville. He was being treated Sunday for an "anxiety reaction" and influenza at Reynolds Memorial Hospital and was in fair condition, officials said. Lorentz was one of 16 hostages seized in the New Year's Day uprising by inmates brandishing homemade knives and spears. Prisoners controlled the decrepit, 120-year-old penitentiary for two days and killed three inmates before the last hostages were released Friday and the state regained control. Gov. Arch Moore has said officials believe a group of inmates acted as "judge, jury and executioner" of prisoners suspected of informing on others. Although Corrections Department policy prohibits officers from speaking to reporters, several who agreed to speak without being identified said that hostages witnessed the deaths of Slie and fellow inmate Jeff Atkinson, who was convicted of murdering a pregnant woman. Atkinson's murder was seen by a guard who "had tilted his head back so he could peer out from behind a blindfold," one correctional officer said. He said the inmates apparently cut out Atkinson's heart. "He saw blood all over. Then he heard one guy say, 'It's amazing how this little thing will keep a fellow alive.' "Then another one said, 'Well it won't keep him alive anymore.'" The officer said he was told by the witness that "they butchered Jeff and then carried his heart and guts all over." The guard said Atkinson had been a prison informer and had supplied information that foiled several plans to smuggle drugs and weapons into the prison. The guards' accounts were confirmed by an outside official who said he had spoken to hostages who witnessed the killings. Warden Jerry Hedrick was unavailable for comment Sunday, his office said. Prison employees said all inmates were locked in their cells Sunday as a search for weapons and contraband continued. "The prisoners have more weapons than the officers," said Greg Denier, a spokesman for the Communications Workers of America, which represents 90 percent of the guards. HOUSTON, Texas - If you have symptoms of "sebum" hair loss; oily or greasy forehead; dandruff, dry or oily; itchy scalp; and if your hair pulls out easily on top of your head, chances are excellent that you can now reduce your hair loss...stimulate hair growth...and reverse the balding process. A firm of laboratory consultants has developed a treatment for excessive hair loss caused by "sebum", that is so successful, they don't even ask you to take their word for it. They invite you to try the treatment for 32 days, at their risk, and see for yourself. The great majority of cases of excessive hair fall and baldness are the beginning and more fully developed stages of male pattern baldness and cannot be helped. But, how can you be sure what is actually causing YOUR excessive hair loss? Even if baldness may seem to "run in the family," it is certaily not proof of the cause of YOUR problem. Many conditions can cause excessive hair loss. Everyone has a full head of hair until some time after puberty. In the case of hair loss caused by "sebum", the problem starts when the male hormone production reaches its peak. This causes an excessive discharge of toxic sebum, which if not properly controlled, will gradually destroy the hair- producing cells on top of the head. Hair loss caused by sebum can also run in your family, and, if you wait until you are slick bald and your hair-producing cells are destroyed, you are beyond help. So, if you still have any hair on top of your head, and would like to reverse the balding is the time to do something about it before it's too late. Loesch Laboratory Consultants, Inc., will supply you with treatment for 32 their risk...if you have the sebum symptoms and are not already slick bald. Just send them the information below.

Syria's missile removal eases Mideast tension KANSAS TECHNICAL INSTITUTE CONTINUING EDUCATION & EVENING COURSES SPRING'86 TEL AVIV, Israel (AP) — Israeli officials and analysts said Sunday that Syria's removal of anti-aircraft missiles from Lebanon had. eased tensions in the region, but noted that it could easily put them back again. "This is the second time they've pulled out the missiles," Prime Minister Shimon Peres said. Peres was referring to Syria's withdrawal of the mobile SAM-6 and SAM-8 missiles from eastern Lebanon about two weeks ago. Peres said Israel "must utilize the diplomatic process to its full capacity," meaning diplomatic efforts by the United States to persuade Syria to keep the missiles out of Lebanon, where it maintains a military presence. Other Israeli officials and military analysts also warned that Syria, in a "game of nerves," might shift its missiles again. "The fact that the Syrians have taken the missiles out now doesn't mean they won't put them back tomorrow," a government official said. A member of the Reagan administration and Israeli officials confirmed Saturday that Syria had removed the SAM-6 and SAM-8 missiles they deployed in Lebanon after Israel downed two Syrian MiG-23 fighters over Syrian airspace on Nov. 19. The immediate effect of the missile move was to ease tensions between the two enemy countries, said a ranking military source.

Surveying Law Tu 7:00-9:30 pm Budget officials warn of surprises when mandatory cutbacks begin By The New York Times WASHINGTON — Budget officials predict some pain, confusion and resentment as government departments and agencies, big and small, learn next week about the spending cuts required by the new balanced budget law. "I think people are in for a big surprise," said Rudolph G. Penner, director of the Congressional Budget Office. The agency is working with the Reagan administration's Office of Management and Budget to prepare the specifications for the expected $11.7 billion cut in the 1986 budget. "The thing is purposely designed to have an unappealing result and it will," he said. The measure, which sets deficit ceilings that decline to zero by 1991, was signed into law in December. It was sponsored in the Senate by two Republicans, Phil Gramm of Texas and Warren Rudman of New Hampshire, and a Democrat, Ernest Hoi- lings of South Carolina. If Congress and the White House cannot agree on their own package to reduce the deficit to each year's ceiling, the law requires automatic cuts. The automatic cut for fiscal 1986, which began Oct. 1, is limited to a maximum of $11.7 billion. This could be avoided or reduced if Congress and the White House agree to their own deficit-reducing package before March 1. Although much of the recent debate on the bill has focused on the president's proposals for the 1987 budget, the cuts mandated by the new law begin with the current budget year. "It's going to be like an avalanche," said one of the top congressional technicians working this weekend on the details of the spending cuts. "The agencies don't see the the snow that is waiting to fall on them.'' When asked about the cuts coming for the National Institutes of Health, an institute spokesman, Donald Ralbovsky, gave the answer echoed in many other agencies: "Nobody really knows; it really hasn't crys- talizedyet." Administrators in many agencies have called the law irrational and impossible, citing the provision that stipulates the automatic cuts must be made across the board in nonmilitary programs, leaving little discretion or flexibility.
