IWorld National Update jColby wants law to punish bath breakers tern Sentinel itar MrvfcM WASHINGTON Former CIA Director William Colby says he would like to see a law providing punishment for CIA employees and former employees who reveal secrets. Colby said he would want "a very limited law" applying only to CIA employees who take an oath of secrecy. (.'Secondly," Colby added, "I would require that the secret be screened by an impartial judge to make sure it's a real secret and not a coverup of some wrongdoing." Colby's remarks were made in an interview on the C1JS television program "60 Minutes," broadcast Sunday. They were prompted by allegations last w$ek on the same program by John Stockwell, former head of the CIA's Angola task force, that "blundering stupidity" by the agency paved the way for massive Cuban and Soviet intervention in Angola. $tockwe!l also accused Colby of misleading CIA oversight committees about the extent of CIA involvement in Angola. 'I stand by the fact that I deny that I misled Congress when I described the basic thrust of our program in Angola," Colby said. DODDCD 11 s, Vote expected to test handling of Moro kidnap ROME Almost 4 million Italians began voting in. municipal and provincial elections expected to test popular reaction to the government's handling of;the terrorist kidnapping and killing of former Premier Aldo Moro. Political experts predicted the balloting, which continues through this afternoon, would show if Italians supported the government's refusal to negotiate with the ultra-leftist Red Brigades terrorists to save Moro's life. Most experts predicted the Christian Democratic Party, and possibly the Communists as well, would gain strength in the local balloting at the expense of the smaller parties.

From t-A China plans to beef up training of armed forces HONG KONG Saying war with the Soviet Union is inevitable, China announced plans to intensify training of its armed forces. The New China News Agency said the decision "stresses military training with an eye to actual coinbat," including atomic or germ warfare. Last Tuesday, Soviet troops, gunboats and helicopters raided a Chinese island in the Ussuri River, which forms part of the Sino-Soviet border. Moscow later apologized for the intrusion and said it had been a mistake. American firms in Iran issue warning after riots r. 1 TEHRAN, Iran American companies operating in;; Iran urged employees to restrict travel in the wake of anti-government riots that killed at least 15 persons last week. Tehran's American and British community schools announced they would be closed today. Sources at other foreign schools said they were considering closing also. Lieutenant governor won't challenge Sen. Brooke BOSTON Lt. Gov. Thomas P. O'Neill III announced he would not, after all, seek the Democratic nomination for United States senator. The announcement ended a week of intense political turmoil here that had begun when it became known that the lieutenant governor was reconsidering his earlier decision not to challenge the Republican incumbent, Edward W. Brooke. The decision by O'Neill, the 33-year-old son of the Speaker of the House, leaves only a handful of mi-no- candidates challenging Brooke, who is seeking a third term. Brooke is the only black in the Senate anjj the only member of the once-dominant Republican party to hold a statewide office in Massachusetts. O'Neill's decision also leaves the state's Republicans, who are largely white, middle-class and Protestant, in the awkward position of backing a liberal black incumbent who is facing an insurgent cam-pajgn by a conservative Jew. Protester killed on last day of Dominican campaign SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic Police barred an opposition rally and government supporters killed a political protester at the close of campaigning for the Dominican presidential election. police halted cars decorated with the white banner of the opposition Dominican Revolutionary Party land diverted them away from Quisqueaya Stadium, where the ruling Reformist Party held its last rally in the re-election campaign of President Joa-quin Balaguer. Balaguer, 70, opposes former Agriculture Minister Amonio Guzman and nine minor candidates in Tuesday's election. BEFORE YOU LEASE A CAR OR TRUCK Call John Edenfield ROGER HOLLER LEASING 645-1234 The longtime civic leader and owner of a road construction firm warned that the $2.8 million plan originally considered was too makeshift. Hubbard recommended waiting until enough additional money became available to build a new or expanded stadium of greater quality. His fellow CFA members overruled him 3-2 and the race was on. The alleged missteps in that sprint to 50,622 seats are the points in the CFA lawsuit. The poly-headed action 13 defendants currently are listed in the amended complaint is expected to come to trial early next year. The lawsuit is so involved that there are 31 volumes of related depositions on file in the Orange County Courthouse. The testimony was collected in daylong sessions that have Included as many as a dozen lawyers representing the various parties. One veteran counselor estimated that several sessions each represented more than $1,000 an hour in combined legal fees. Lynn Thompson, Orlando public services director, said "$1,200 to $2,000 a month" is being paid to the Orlando firm of Peed and King to keep the lawsuit progressing. The city assumed control of the stadium when the CFA was beset by financial problems. The basis of the complaint is the contention that a set of schematic drawings or a "first phase" design was allowed to become construction documents with only minimal refinement by design ar- Gas spem from train icreck in Texas town United Press International Dispatch NACOGDOCHES, Texas A Southern Pacific freight train carrying gas and chemicals derailed on a bridge Sunday, exploding in flames and spewing a cloud of sickening fumes that drove residents from this east Texas city. Authorities cleared a two-mile radius evacuation area and then sent in firemen wearing oxygen masks to battle the flames racing through the 127-car train. One fireman, a policeman, several reserve police officers and some Nacogdoches residents were hospitalized for gas inhalation. But no major injuries were immediately reported. "It's still smoking," a police dispatcher said Sunday-night. "We're still not sure what the chemical is, but it burns their eyes and makes them sick at their stomach and everything." The train ran off the rails on a bridge at the southern outskirts of the city, touching off three explosions and a raging fire. Emergency crews rushed to dam a stream below the bridge to contain gas and chemicals spewing from the wreck. But a gaseous haze, described as "whitish blue" by a reporter near the scene, settled over the southern edge of the city. Elderly, bedridden patients from two nursing homes were evacuated to a hospital. The incident came a week after city and state law enforcement agencies held a mock derailment exercise within a mile of the scene to train authorities how to deal with such an emergency. chitects and structural engineers. , The drawings were produced by Standard Steel Industries, the Three Rivers, Mich., company originally awarded a design-built contract on the project before it later was bid on again. In his deposition, Klaus Scheele, Standard Steel chief engineer, reveals that the plans were drawn by two draftsmen with no professional education under the supervision of Scheele, who had no experience in multilevel stadiums. A subcontractor, Bob Finfrock, lends support to the contention that those schematic drawings underwent little refinement. When the construction contract was rebid following legal delays and awarded to Graham Construction of Orlando, the plans were . purchased from Standard Steel. The Apopka-based Finfrock Industries would supply the L-shaped concrete seat risers. But Finfrock vows producing precise shop drawings from those plans was virtually impossible. "The plans were really bad. They were nothing more than preliminary plans," he said. "The geometry didn't even work out in those plans. It was so bad, we had to refuse to bid the job at one point just to call somebody's attention to it." Sources say the CFA could collect as much as $1 million from the lawsuit but more likely will win judgments totaling about $750,000. When that money arrives if indeed it does there remains the question of how to apply it to the T-Bowl's various sores it O TOMORROW: Son of Tangerine Bowl one of several alternatives. Medical 'sonar caution issued United Press International DisMtdi WASHINGTON The Food and Drug Administration has issued its first words of caution about the rapidly growing use of sonar-like ultrasound devices for medical diagnoses, particularly to view unborn infants. "Like so many other things, it has never been rigorously studied to conclude without any question that the levels used are indeed unequivocally safe," said David Link, director of the FDA's Bureau of Medical Devices and Diagnostic Products. The FDA estimates that as many as a million women are exposed to ultrasound annually. Ultrasound uses low-intensity sound pulses that bounce off layers of tissue in the body in the same way sound waves in sonar devices bounce off submarines or sea bottoms. Images of body structures can be produced by recording the echoes of sound waves. Link emphasized in an interview that experts have detected no detrimental effect in humans from its use. "But why expose people unnecessarily to things about which everything isn't known?" Link asked. A statement prepared by the agency cites studies that show biological effects when sound waves of the intensity used for diagnostic purposes are exposed to laboratory animals. Of particular concern are those studies indicating ultrasound can affect the development of laboratory animals exposed in the uterus, the statement said. Thanks to twin he can he dad Associated Prist Dispatch SACRAMENTO, Calif. An operation in which a 30-year-old man donated a testicle to his identical twin has been proclaimed a success by the patients, one year after the surgery. In interviews with The Sacramento Union, Tim and Terry Twomey said that Tim, who was born without testicles, now has a sperm count that indicates he can father a child, and the surgeon says Terry, who has three children, can have more. The operation was performed at St. Luke's West Hospital in St. Louis, Mo., by Dr. Sherman Silber. A Sacramento doctor had told Tim that Silber might be able to help him, and Tim approached his brother. Terry said he turned down his brother's proposal, then reconsidered. "I was willing to help him out with at least half of what I had up to half only," he said. They said Silber called the operation the world's first testicle transplant and plans to publish a scien tific description. The twins said the surgery lasted for eight hours. Both men were in intensive care for about a week. Tim was immobile for several "very painful" days. terry sunerea swelling ana pain tor about six weeks. Both have been married for several years. Tim is a deputy sheriff in Sacramento and Terry is in the auto and truck dismantling business.
