Camera News "The tiny camera came in handy again for 'The Seven Minutes.' Since the story deals with the world of pornography, I had to visit 'dirty book' stores, 'art film' studios and a Los Angeles courtroom. Witli an inconspicuous camera, I could make record shots for later study. Having pictures in front of me when I write, helps immeasurably in recreating the actual scenes and in recalling impressions." Because photography, is such plus factor in his writing, I asked Wallace to explain a disparaging reference in "The Plot."

Take his recent best-seller, "The Plot," with its setting in Venice and Paris. Wallace's descriptions of bistros, restaurants and off-beat attractions are so reliable that readers have used the novel as a tourist guidebook in those cities. For occasions when picture taking could not be done openly, Wallace bought a Minox, the precision miniature camera. He used it in Stockholm in I960 when researching "The Prize," the' novel involving the Nobel Prize.

'But that isn't my thought," Wallace quickly answered. "It is the feeling of Medora Hart, one of the characters. In the novel,.she has been the victim of a vicious scandal, hounded by press and the public. She had a l-ersonal reason for disliking people with cameras. I plead not guilty. "In fact, thanks to photography, I got started in writing," pipe-smoking Wallace thoughtfully recalled. "At 19, I joined an expedition to Central America as a photographer. We searched for a legendary waterfall in Honduras called 'Tli Fountain of Blood' . . . and found it too. It inspired me to write my first magazine article, 'My Adventure Trail.' It was printed, with photos, in Canada. "Later. I photo-interviewed Sen. Huey Long, the controversial Louisiana political figure.

Irving By WILLIAM TUOHY The Los Angeles Times TRIPOLI, Libya--The cream- colored wall opposite the entrance to the Libya Palace Hotel is painted with foot-high letters in an English scrawl: "You are safe in our country." The words are meant to reassure foreigners that the Sept. 1 revolution will bring no harm to them and so far that has been pretty much the case. Soldiers with British-made rifles guard Tripoli's public buildings. Armored cars with stubby gun barrels are outside the radio station. A boy scratches the royal crown off a metal street sign. After the 10:00 curfew, the streets are dark and deserted. All seems calm. Yet a gray mood has fallen over the Mediterranean port of Tripoli. Business has fallen off drastically. Rumors are rife. No one really knows what is going on or what will come next. "There is very much uncertainty and fear," says one well- placed Libyan. "Nobody knows what is going to happen next. The economy is at a standstill. knows who is in or out of jail. The Kevoltionary Command Council operates behind an iron curtain." The reason for. the uncertainty, basically, is that the Revolutionary Command Council-the ruling body of a dozen or so junior army officers who pulled -off what diplomats call a "textbook coup" -- are still trying to sort things out, and be- Nixon Tags Vet Ed Benefit Hike 'Excessive' WASHINGTON (AP) - President Nixon, battling Congress over money again, says a $60 increase over the $130 monthly education benefit available to a returning Vietnam veteran is excessive. The $GO increase is in a bill that goes on the Senate calendar today and may be called up Thursday for debate. "As President, I have no option view with extreme con- gin running this oil-rich, North African nation. There is no question 'at this point but that the Revolutipny Command Council · is in firm control. But the officers appear surpised by the ease, speed and success with which they brought off their revolution. Hence, they seem somewhat unprepared. ' "These are former young lieutenants and captains," explains one observer. "All of a sudden, they find themselves running one of the richest countries in the Arab world. They get a billion dollars a year from the oil companies alone. They just haven't sorted out the priorities yet." Thus Libya today'is governed by perhaps the youngest administration in the world. The chairman of the Revolutionary Council is a 27-year-old, recent- ly-clevated Lt. Col. Muammar Gaddafi. And one 25-year-old member of the R.C.C. estimates that the average age of the council Ms 28..He, like other council members, refuses to give precise figures 'about its composition but reliable sources indicate that it is composed of not much more than a dozen members, some of whom are based here, and the others in Bengazi, the regional capital of the eastern province of Cyrenaica. According to the best report here, the dust from the revolution has not settled, and the council is still studying such questions as the future of the big U. S. air base at nearby headed by Veterans Administrator Donald E. Johnson. Backers of a hefty boost in the GI educational benefits say the $130 base currently allowed is totally inadequate and as a result young soldiers returning from Vietnam are forced to pass up college or training. Veterans Administration statistics show that out of 3.1 million Vietnam era veterans in civilian life, only 754,424 or just under 24 per cent, participated in training programs in the three years which ended last June 30. The GI benefits were raisec from $100 a month to $130 per individual two years ago, am the bill passes. The President's statement came in a letter to Sen. Ralph W. Yarborough, D-Tex., chairman of a Senate Labor subcommittee which championed the $60 boost. A House-approved version of the bill called for a $35 jump and Nixon said he favored a $17 icrcase. The $17 figure the President is pushing is the recommendation of a Cabinet-level committee W U t LU V l t t * Ullll A11 1.111^ \-ull- , 11 1 11_ p llT L cern the possible enactment of £st year the length of the bene- this measure," Nixon said Tues- flt was extended to 36 months- day in possibly hinting a veto if ° r a f " u »l semesters in col- ' "· - Wheelus Field and the British ase at Tobruk. The council is also reviewing what if any changes are to be nade in the relationship be- ween the government and the mge foreign oil industry that pumps about 3 million barrels of high-grade crude daily. It now appears clear that the he new Libyan regime will not extend the U. S. rights to the Wheelus training base past the expiration date of December. 1971. And most knowledgeable sources here believe that while the government will seek a bigger cut of oil revenues, it will not nationalize the industry. "They will continue to lighten the screws on the oil com- janies," says one analyst here, 'but they have no intention of tilling the goose that is laying the golden egg. The Libyans are iragmalic enough to realize .hat they don't have the technological know-how to run this complicated business." The proclaimed goals of the revolution are: Arab unity, socialism and freedom. For an ultra-conservative country, Li- jya has made a dramatic shift .0 the left under the new regime. And it is conceivable that in he future it will move even closer, militarily and politically, to the Soviet Union. But for the present, no close observer here detects any outside force that influenced, the revolution, which overthrew the ·eign of 79-year-old King Idris. "This was strictly a home ;rown coup," says one veteran liplomat. "There was absolutely no Soviet influence, nor any from the Arab Baalh party, nor from Nasser's Egypt. This s entirely a move on the part of Libyan nationalists." The coup had its origins in the dissatisfaction among young energetic army officers over the way the monarchy and the ruling oligarchic families ran the country. But, according to the best diplomatic reading here, it was triggered by the little-known [act that King Idris in Augus indicated he was preparing to abdicate in favor of Crown Prince Hassan Rida. The crown prince is highly un fit was extended to 36 months-- popular.and so, according to reports, a cabal was formei among senior army officers ant establishment figures to launcl a coup which would finesse Has san Rida but leave the ruling families in control. This movement, however, was short - circuited by a maneuver by the junior officers to ta ke over the government. They struck quickly and ef- lege--for any veteran who was in the service more than 18 months. The bill now before Ihe Senale, in addilion to raising the monthly payments for college, provides some new benefits.

Though most diplomatic observers s,-,-y it is too soon to tell how effective the new regime will Ire, (hey tend to give it good marks for the performance to date. Tlie potential trouble spots will develop, sources here say, if the young officers fail lo get the economy moving again -- wilh the resultant unemployment; or if they should suddenly embark on a program of indiscriminate arrests, which would add to existing unrest. "The young officers in the new regime," summed up one veteran diplomat, "are very inexperienced in government. But so far they hve handled themselves well. They genuinely seem to reflect the cause of Libyan nationalism. If they continue to represent the problem- solving, young generation -- and play their cards right -- they could remain in power for a long time. CONGRATULATIONS!!
