Nation/World The Salina Journal Saturday, January 11,1986 Page 5 Canada, Italy join U.S. against Libya ROME (AP) - Italy banned arms exports to Libya on Friday, becoming the first U.S. ally to heed President Reagan's call for economic sanctions against Col. Moammar Khadafy's regime. That action was followed later Friday by Canada, which announced it would bar government aid to companies seeking new business with Libya and banned the sale of oil drilling equipment to that North African country. It also urged Canadians not to take the jobs of American workers ordered by (he Reagan administration to leave Libya. The Italian Foreign Ministry said the decision on arms exports was made after a Cabinet meeting was held Thursday to examine Italian- Libyan relations in view of "serious suspicions regarding Libya's tolerance and support" for terrorists believed to have carried out the attacks last month at Rome and Vienna airports. Italy has been Libya's third- largest source of weapons after the Soviet Union and France. Reagan on Tuesday imposed sanctions on Libya in response to the Dec. 27 airport attacks that left 19 people dead, including five Americans and four terrorists. The State Department linked the attacks to Libya. Reagan has sent messages to U.S. allies asking them to join the United States in economic sanctions against Libya, the White House said Friday. Sources in Premier Bettino Craxi's office said that in his reply to Reagan, he called for renewed efforts for a Middle East peace and stressed the need to increase the fight against terrorism. Reacting to Italy's suspension of weapons shipments, State Department spokesman Bernard Kalb said "we welcome that as a statement of policy. The U.S. gov- ernment has been following a more rigorous policy for some time. We hope that other governments will recognize the value of that.'' Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney announced the measures Canada will take following a Cabinet meeting in Meech' Lake, Quebec, a government resort. But he said the actions were not taken "to satisfy Mr. Reagan. They were done because there's a moral issue, and Canada must do its share." Several Western allies have already rejected the idea of sanctions. On Friday, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said her country would not join in any sanctions. "Look, sanctions don't work. Other people supply the goods," she told American correspondents at a news conference. Maria Namani, an official with the Belgium-Luxembourg-Arab Chamber of Commerce, said in Brussels that Belgians still will go to Libya this month looking for trade opportunities. "We did not plan the mission on the basis (of the U.S. sanctions) but we are not going to cancel it," she said. "On the contrary, it is a good period, commercially speaking.'' In Paris, Foreign Minister Roland Dumas said France had asked the United States for the information that led Reagan to conclude Libya was behind the airport attacks. He said France's relations with Libya were "chaotic," and did not exclude the possibility that France also might adopt sanctions. Dutch Premier Ruud Lubbers said in the Hague that it was "highly unlikely" the European Common Market would impose economic sanctions against Libya. Lubbers, current Common Market president, also said the U.S. embargo has rallied Arab nations to the Libyan cause. Record-setting shuttle set for Sunday launch Roach was confident his sins were forgiven CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) Fierce rain pounding the launch pad forced a record seventh delay Friday in the flight of space shuttle Columbia, as NASA told the frustrated cre.w "We're sorry" and scheduled the next try for Sunday. Problems in getting the jinxed ship into orbit have already cost an estimated $1 million and are starting to interfere with the heavy shuttle schedule NASA has set for 1986. "We tried to wait out a chance for some good weather. But it's just not going to come today, guys," launch director Gene Thomas told the astronauts by radio when it become apparent the skies were not about to clear. "We'll try again." "OK, Gene, thank you," replied astronaut Robert Gibson, the mission commander. "We figure it was worth the try, but looking out the window, we could pretty well see we weren't going anywhere today." Most of the crew members were smiling as they left the spacecraft, and former Salinan Steve Hawley emerged waving a white handkerchief, as if in surrender. The astronauts broke a record for the number of times a crew boarded a shuttle and waited out a countdown that went nowhere. This is not the way the National Aeronautics and Space Administration wanted to start out its biggest year, with 15 shuttle launchings on the schedule.

(AP) - James Terry Roach, calm and confident his sins had been forgiven, was executed Friday for a pair of murders he committed as a 17-year-old, despite pleas for clemency by Mother Teresa, Jimmy Carter and other inter" national figures. "I pray that my fate will someday save another kid that ends up on the wrong side of the tracks," the 25-year-old Roach said in his final statement after being strapped in the state's electric chair at 5a.m. He was pronounced dead at 5:16 a.m., said Doug Catoe, a deputy corrections commissioner. Roach, the first juvenile offender to be executed involuntarily since the death penalty was reins- tituted in 1976, seemed comforted by assurances that his case had focused attention on the issue of capital punishment for juvenile crimes, his at- torney, David Bruck, said. "I told him that the tremendous attention the last few days that suddenly and at last has been paid to his case would help (others like him), and he came back to that and asked several times if... I really thought that was true," Bruck said. "He seemed to draw some comfort when we told him that we really did think that." A Texas inmate, Charles Rumbaugh, 28, was executed Sept. 11 for a murder committed during an armed robbery when he was 17, but he did not fight the penalty. Roach, of Seneca, pleaded guilty in October 1977 to killing Tommy Taylor, 17, and Carlotta Hartness, 14, who were attacked as they sat in a car parked near their high school. Taylor was shot in the face, and Hartness was taken to nearby woods, raped, shot in the back of the head and mutilated. Joseph Carl Shaw, a co-defendant, was executed for the same crime Jan. 11, 1984. Roach always claimed Shaw was the triggerman. Bruck said on ABC-TV's "Nightline" that the murder of the teen-agers was "horrible." "But it seems to me that if all the world except the United States has already turned its back on the execution of juvenile offenders who aren't retarded like Terry is, then the United States has no need to go on with this business of brandishing the electric chair at its own children," he said. Roach's attorneys had argued that his life should be spared because he suffered from Huntington's disease, a mentally debilitating condition, and because international accords prohibit the execution of prisoners who were younger than 18 at the time of their offense. 9.25% 8.50% 10.00% U.S. GOVERNMENT GUARANTEED BONDS FEDERAL INCOME TAX-FREE* MUNICIPAL BONDS IRAANDKEOGH** RETIREMENT PLANS • Interest may be subject to state and local taxes "Based on A-rated Corporated Bonds Rates Expressed As Yield To Maturity Edward D.

Fifth, Salina, Ks. 913-823-5133 (Call Collect) King holiday celebration lacks money ATLANTA (AP) - Ten days of celebrations surrounding the first national holiday honoring Martin Luther King Jr. begin today, with organizers facing a lack of cash, a situation familiar to those who worked with the slain civil rights leader. King's widow, Coretta Scott King, said at a news conference Friday that she ignores criticism that seminars and ceremonies planned here may be too ambitious. "We've never had any money," she said. "It's interesting that 30 years later (in the civil rights movement), we still don't have any money to put on a national celebration." The holiday honoring King, who was assassinated in 1968, is Jan. 20. A series of events is scheduled in Atlanta before and after Jan. 15, which would have been his 57th birthday. Fundraising for the celebrations has lagged well behind the King National Holiday Commission's original $1.5 million budget. Commission officials said they've gotten $300,000, which is being spent on literature. Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young, once King's top aide, decried the city's lack of preparation for the holiday and its small $100,000 contribution to the budget. "I'm embarrassed that... the focus of the world will be on Atlanta for these days, and they're not going to see this city at its best," said Young, who appeared at the news conference.
