1 1 5 -r CIA urged to end use of reporters WASHINGTON (AP) The CIA should stop using all journalists for intelligence-gathering missions, even if this creates difficulty for the spy agency, the president of the American Society of Newspaper Editors said today. Eugene Patterson told a House intelligence subcommittee that the price of creating problems for the CIA "is worth paying to establish universally the far larger fact that Americans live by their title deeds and offer to others an ideology that works without cheating." The House panel is studying the CIA's relationship with U.S. news organizations. In addition to his role as head of the editors society, Patterson is president and editor of the St. Petersburg, Fla., Times. Patterson noted the CIA had to be forced by public opinion to stop hiring American journalists for intelligence purposes, and still insists on the right to recruit news reporters of foreign nations. "On the one hand our government and our press stand for a belief i expression free of government influence everywhere," Patterson said. "On the other, the intelligence agency of the United States government reserves the right to subvert journalists anywhere abroad, and its former agents express pride at having done so." Yesterday, the subcommittee was told there was a "deliberate CIA manipulation of the American press" ti reporting the assassination of CIA station chief Richard Welch in Greece two years ago. Morton Halperin, a onetime aide to Henry Kissinger, said the CIA called reporters and tried to blame the assassination on Counter-Spy magazine for identifying Welch as station chief. A CIA spokesman denied the account of Halperin, now director of the Center for National Security Studies. Radio City Music Hall will close Then., Jaa. S. ITS PRESS, Biigkamtoa.

It was the latest in a series of "closing" announcements since 1962 by the financially troubled theater. But each time previously the tourist mecca has managed to survive for another season. The final presentation of the theater's annual Easter season show is scheduled for April 12. Alton G. Marshall, the president, said the action was . "taken with a deep sense of regret" and with appreciation of the efforts of its employees to keep the showplace of the nation open. He said toe 8,200-seat theater had operated for the past several years with heavy losses and projected it would drop more than $3.5 million for 1978. Through war and peace, from depression to boom and back again. Radio City Music Hall was a fixture in the New York City firmament. While styles changed with the seasons, its Art Deco halls never changed. Mich, convict held in Mineo slaying MARSHALL, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan convict has indicated he will return to California voluntarily to face a first-degree murder charge in the 1976 stabbing death of actor Sal Mineo, the Calhoun County sheriff said today. Sheriff Roger Dean said Lionel R. Williams, 21, suggested he won't fight extradition. "He indicated he'U waive the hearing" which had been set for Circuit Court later today, Dean said. If that happens. Dean said, Williams will be handed over to California authorities for return to that state "by the weekend." Williams, whose jail cell conversations about the Mineo slaying were bugged by police, was charged with first-degree murder in Beverly Hills, Calif., Municipal Court yesterday. Williams is due to complete an eight-month jail term in Marshall tomorrow for forgery. Authorities say that in tape-recorded conversations in June and December, Williams talked to cellmates about the Mineo case. His jail cell had been bugged at the request of the Los Angeles County sheriff's department. Dean said the conversations "contributed investigative leads ... we went in there and interviewed all of Williams' cellmates." In Los Angeles, Sheriff Peter Pitchess said investigators believe Williams acted alone "and killed Mineo with the apparent motive of robbery" in the February 1976 incident. Investigators were puzzled because money was found on the 37-year-old actor's bloodstained body, which was discovered in the carport adjoining his apartment. Pitchess conceded yesterda y that no robbery occurred . Williams was arrested in California in April on the forgery charge involving the payroll check and was extradited to Michigan. He pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of obtaining money under false pretenses in July and was sentenced Aug. 15 to 10 months in jail. Marshall said attendance had fallen from 5 million annually through 1967 to las than 2 million last year and finding family films had become increasing difficult. Mayor Edward Koch said after the announcement, "We ll do everything we can to see how we can keep it open. If it were closed, it would be terrible." Radio City Music Hall opened its doors on Dec. 27, 1932. The cornerstone of the Music Hall policy was to provide family entertainment. And it was the last movie theater offering a stage show. featuring the finest in ' Prime Ribs - Steaks & Lobster relaxed dining ... enjoyable cocktails late night sandwiches dinners served Mon.-Thurs. 5 to 1 1 p.m. Fri. & Sat. 5 p.m.-midnight 62 LIKOY STREET, BINGH4MTON 722-9732 For Winter CLASSES KEJTTtXS mem K22LEPC4XT CkiYiLL RAvKAntc Beginning & Intermediate Quilting All Gaises starting week of Jan. 16th . j 1 ...
