Thurs.,Feb.26,1976 GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE 29 Freed diplomats debriefed; join families ATHENS (UPI) - Two kidnaped U.S. embassy officials freed by Palestinian guerrillas in Beirut after four months in captivity joyously rejoined their families here today. Charles Gallagher, 45, smiled and appeared to be in good spirits as he got off a Middle East Airlines jet, although he admitted he lost some weight during his captivity. William Dykes, 55, looked well-fed and "jovial," witnesses said. The two diplomats were escorted off by embassy security personnel who tried to shield them from reporters and pushed them into separate embassy cars, where (heir wives waited. As the two couples fell into each others' arms, the official cars, with security men sitting beside the drivers, drove to undisclosed destinations. The two officials' families had been evacuated from war- torn Lebanon several months ago. The two men had been dragged from their car and kidnaped four months ago. Their release Wednesday night ended the last and longest of the hundreds of known abductions carried out during Leba- non's civil war. Lebanese sources said the two were freed Wednesday in exchange for the release of two Palestinian guerrillas jailed in Israel, but the U.S. embassy denied any knowledge of such an exchange. "No ransom demands were ever communicated to the U.S. embassy or other American officials," an embassy spokesman said. "We neither received a ransom demand nor conceded one." The release of Charles Gallagher, 44, and William Dykes, 55, came after the embassy was instructed to send representatives to the home of Lebanese socialist leader Kamal Jumblatt Wednesday evening. The representatives waited 90 minutes. Suddenly, Gallagher and Dykes walked into the room -the first official news as to their whereabouts since they were pulled from their car in a Palestinian-controlled sector of Beirut Oct. 22. Sources close to the case said Gallagher and Dykes, officials of the U.S. Information Agency in Beirut, were delivered to Jumblatt's house by the Marxist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. A Popular Front spokesman denied it. The sources said the Popular Front held the two men throughout .most of their confinement after accepting custody from their abductors, a group of Lebanese Nasseritr- left-wingers. Gallagher, of Koanoke. Va.. and Dykes, of San .lose, Calif., went into seclusion. An embassy spokesman said the men were in good health and would leave for the United States "almost immediately" and would not tw available for questioning. Black Rhodesians protest visit by British envoy Trapped in wreck A woman passenger trapped in a car ipmn]jcrinrl j n an accident Tuesday in Toronto is comforted by a police constable. Three women and a man were injured when the car swerved into a concrete hydro pole. The in- jured were Cheryl Walters, 19, Terry Kamsay, 29, both of Toronto and Morag McCrcadic, H, and Ann Ratzch, 18, both of Barrie, Ont. (CF Wirepholo) SALISBURY, Rhodesia (AP) - About 1,000 black Africans led by women demonstrated today against the visit of Lord Greenhill, a special British envoy trying to assist in talks between the white minority government and black nationalist leader Joshua Nkomo. The visit comes against a background of increased guerrilla warfare against Rhodesia's government. Border clashes Tuesday left two dozen guerrillas and one Rhodesian soldier dead. Today's demonstration p ,vas staged by the militant faction of the African National Council -- ANC -- headed by Bishop Abel Muzorewa which has denounced the constitutional talks now going on between Prime Minister Ian Smith and Nkomo, leader of the moderate wing of the ANC. Reuben Nyamweda, organizing secretary of the Muzo- rewa wing, said the demonstration was to register the group's opposition to Greenhill's visit and any British involvement in the Smith-Nkomo talks. "The British have let us down before. The talks are being held by two minority groups. We want to show we are in the majority," Nyam- weda said. Lord Greenhill, former head of the British diplomatic service, arrived 18 hours late because of engine trouble en route. He brushed aside reporters' questions and said he did not know when his first meetings with Rhodesian leaders would be held. Sources close to the British envoy made clear that the government in London still insists on a promise that power will be transferred from Rhodesia's 270,000 whites to the 6 million blacks. The sources said Greenhill would ask Prime Minister Ian Smith "one or two ques- tions," and further British initiatives would be based on the answers. The British government fears an increase in guerrilla warfare against Smith's white government if he and Nkomo cannot reach an agreement giving the black majority a voice in the government and promising it fulure control. The Rhodesian government announced that at least 24 African guerrillas and one Rhodesian soldier were killed in clashes Tuesday along the northeastern border wi!h Mozambique. An estimated 700 guerrillas slipped into the bor- der area in the past month, (he headquarters said. The success of the Soviet-supported, Cuban-led Popular Movement iMPLA) in nearby Angola has intensified anticipation of foreign Communist help to the guerrilla movements in Rhodesia and South West A f . rica (Namibia), which South Africa's white government refuses to give up.

Sequential oral contraceptives taken off market by businesses I WASHINGTON (AP) - New evidence that sequential oral contraceptives may be harmful to women has led three major drug companies to withdraw the products from the market, the Food and Drug Administration says. The birth control pills being withdrawn ore Oracon, made by Mead-Johnson and Co.; Ortho-Novum SQ, by (Mho Pharmaceuticals; and Norguans, by Syntex Laboratories, FDA announced Wednesday. The sequential pills are used by an estimated 5 to 10 per cent of the 10 million American women who take oral contraceptives. Sequential oral contraceptives contain only estrogen during the first two weeks of the three-week menstrual cycle and combine estrogen with the hormone progestin during the third week. Combination oral contraceptives contain both hormones throughout the three-week cycle. The FDA said it asked for the withdrawal because of new studies strongly suggesting that sequential oral contraceptives pose an increased risk of endo- metrial cancer in the lining of the uterus, compared with women who take combination- type oral contraceptives. Before the cancer studies became known, the FDA already had evidence that sequentials were somewhat less effective in preventing pregnancy than the combination pills, and that the scquentials were associated with n higher risk of blood clotting. The FDA said Ihe three companies, at the agency's request, agreed to cease production, marketing and distribution of the sequential tablets. Supplies on the market will not be recalled, an FDA spokesman said, and women currently taking them are being advised to continue through their present menstrual cycle. from the CARROLL RIGHTER INSTITUTE FORECAST I ; OR F K I I i A Y .
