(l.'PI Photo) Other strikes idle 100,000 Cable cars rolling again By United Press International Cable cars, buses and trolleys were moving again in San Francisco, but major labor disputes across the nation continued to idle 100.00U workers. Passengers carrying bottles of champagne hopped on San Francisco cable cars Sunday to celebrate the end of a city workers strike which shut down mass transit and other city services for 39 days. An agreement was reached Saturday. A couple of members of the c i t y ' s Board of Supervisors saluted San Franciscans for their patience during the strike by 3,800 workers which stranded about 250,000 daily transit riders. City officials said a tough stand against the walkout helped avoid a financial crisis. However, Mayor George Moscone warned that sudden "anti- uuionism" could lead to San Francisco becoming "like New- York was, a series of warring camps." In New York City, the eight- day walkout by 22,000 building workers has resulted in a garbage pilcup outside apartment buildings. Sanitation workers collected garbage outside apartment houses only where it Effie M.A. Wyman CALDWELL-Services for Effie Margarets Amanda Wyman, 78, 1806 Willow, Caldwell, who died Saturday at a Caldwell hospital, will be conducted nl 10:3U a.m. Wednesday at the First United Methodist Church by Rev.

Ser- Bitter Senate fight faces intelligence reform move WASHlNGTOiS' ( U P I ) Powerful opposition awaits the effort by Senate reformers to create a strong, prestigious committee for overseeing all U.S. intelligence activities. Senate leaders scheduled Ihe s'.art today of what promises to be a bitter floor battle between reformers who want to establish a committee with legislative and budgetary powers and old guard conservatives backing a secondrani: panel with little authority. Tr, decision to create a new intelligence oversight committee stemmed from the lenglhy investigation which exposed abuses by the CIA. FBI and other intelligence gathering agencies. Led by Sen. Frank Church, D- Idaho. who spearheaded Ihe i n v e s t i g a t i o n , the reformers persuaded the Government Operations Committee to recommend an It-member panel with legislative powers that cut deeply into its own jurisdiction and into territory now controlled by the Armed Services, Judiciary and Foreign Relations Committees. But on a 5-4 vote, the reformers were beaten when they sought approval by Ihe Rules Committee. The rules panel approved creation of a select commitlee -not a full-ranking standing committee -- with no legislative powers and no control over Ihe intelligence budget. In addition, 8 of the 11 members would be drawn from the committees which have handled intelligence oversight in the past. II seemed d o u b t f u l the Hughes will Letter writers stake claims LAS VEGAS, Nev. (UPII -- The judge assigned to Ihe Howard Hughes case says he's received some "incredible mail" from persons who think the recluse billionaire meant lo menlion them in his will. Judge Keith Hayes, who will help determine if the handwritten will found last month is valid, said he's also received one threatening call warning that "the judge is going lo die," Hayes said he'd been contacted by friends he hadn't heard from in 20 years and is sometimes stopped on the street by people who jokingly suggest he cut them in on a piece of the estate's action. "I've received some incredible mail, there is no olher way lo describe it," Hayes, 44, a soflspoken former state legislator, said in an interview. "One Idler from Japan suggested the real Hughes will was in the possession of a serviceman in Korea. "Another eame from a woman who said she hitchhiked an airplane ride from Hughes while .she was wearing hoi pants. "Some are pathetic letters from persons with tormented minds. They are rambling and incoherent. Every other word is 'conspiracy,' 'plot'or 'Mafia.' The writer feels he is the one who is sorely oppressed because he has been left out cf the will." Ifayes said persons who really think they deserve a share in the billion dollar estate shouldn't waste time writing him letters or contacting him in person. The only way to stake their claim, he said, is to file legal papers He also plans to remind the letter writers and others that making a false claim against the estate is a felony. A Mormon, Hayes said he felt no conflict of interest over Ihe will's one-sixteenth bequest, an estimated *12S million, lo the church, · , "The role of the church Is lo preach the gospel and not to make money," he explained, saying the church would probably renounce the money if he did something illegal. Hayes has been able to keep up with hii other court business so far, but said work on the Hughes estate "could be overwhelming" and require his fulltime attention, "This matter will go on for years," he said. "How many, no one knows." reformers will be able to reverse this move completely and get all Ihey want in the way of independence for Iheir oversight committee wilh powers to review the intelligence budgets, review covert operations in advance and disclose spy secrets on its own authority. The Rules Committee stripped those powers from the proposal it cleared. A n d , although reformers are prepared to fight in floor debate, the mood of Congress seems to have shifted away from the outrage provoked by the intelligence committee's disclosures to concern for protection of U.S. security abroad.

(UPI) The 10-million member United Methodist Church Saturday called for licensing of all gun owners and registration of all firearms. The General Conference of the church approved without debate a statement urging stringent controls on all types of guns in one of the final actions before the 12-day meeting ended. The policy statement on gun control also urges a national ban on importing, manufacture, sale and possession of handguns and handgun ammunition wilh exceplions only for a few restricted areas such as law enforcement and antique collections, "We do not believe there is any constitutional personal right to bear arms," the statement said. In one of its final reports on the conferance, the church news service said most participants in the sessions, held every four years' to formulate church policies "seem to agree that Ihe United Methodist Church has moved to the right." The Rev. Lloyd Wake, a minister at San Francisco's Glide Memorial Church, said, "For me It's like coming into another kind of world, a very uptighl world, a world that's self-enclosed." Thelma Stevens, relired leader of the Women's National _ Agency of Ihe church, cited removal of a quota system for women in church agency executive staffs and a new requirement all new executive staff members lo be Methodists as example of steps to the right. - Bishop William R. Cannon, Atlanta, Ga., said, however, delegates were "less directed by pressure from certain small groups and its sense of moral commitment has been very keen." He added, "I feel Ihe church at large will be quite pleased wilh Ihe oulcomc of this conference." In other actions just before Ihe conference closed ttelegales: --Rejected a call for establishment of a publicly administered universal health care program. --Approved lowering the retirement age for bishops from Ihe current 68-72 lo 66-70 and agreed to shorten their assignments in specific areas. --In one more action on the conference's most controversial subject, rejected a number of petitions calling for a specific ban on ordination of homosexuals.
