I 11 I 4A 4 The Miami News Dump truck overturns Juan Sanchez uses his shirt to clear his eyes while his dump truck lies disabled behind him on Northwest 107th Avenue early today. Sanchez, 21, of Sanchez and Son Trucking company, told police he was on his way to a IIIMIENIEME111M11 PACT, from 1 A fears that the negotiators might be attacked. Those who signed were Alfonso Robe lo, Roberto Ferrey and Juan lavala for ARDE, and Callejas, Aldofo Cider and Indalecio Rodriguez for the FDN, said FDN spokesman Marta Sacasa. ARDE was formerly headed by the flamboyant Nicaraguan fighter Eden Pastora, known as Commander Zero, who was seriously wounded in a bomb attack in Costa Rica ealier this summer in which five people were killed, including American Journalist Linda Frazier, 38. Since then, Pastora and ARDE have parted ways. The FON-ARDE pact does not include Pastora's fighters or anti-Sandinista Miskito Indians, Callejas said, adding that he hopes both groups eventually will join. Of Pastora, Callejas said: "Pastora is an asset in this struggle We are open to accept him." Pastora a hero of the revolution that toppled the regime of ZOO from lA Friday, Aug. 3, 1984 ert Yokel. "We're going through a trial and error process of how we market the zoo. It's kind of a learning pro. cess." Yokel said the decline in attendance cost Metrozoo $300,000 In anticipated revenues. As a result, he said, Metrozoo is asking the county commission for a bigger subsidy from the tax-supported general fund. The zoo's proposed 1984-85 budget contains $123,- 000 more than it got from tax sources in the current fiscal year. This year's Metrozoo budget includes $2.19 million from the general fund, an increase of about five percent. In addition, Metrozoo officials also propose making up for the drop in ticket sales by cutting back maintenance and not filling some job vacancies. Zoo officials said they had planned to hire an ad agency last fall. but were advised by the county manager's office to wait until Metro's tourism department hired a firm. That firm would then handle both accounts a move that officials thought would result in a savings. But the agency selection process became embroiled in a political controversy that ended with all the bids being thrown out by the county attorney's office. "We had a little problem with the system," Yokel said. "I'm not going to cast any stones." In the end, it was decided that Metrozoo should do what they had proposed in the first place: hire their own agency. Metrozoo Marketing Director Rick Hensler said the zoo got the county commission's permission to spend about $150,000 in November for spot advertising until a permanent agency could be selected. But the damage was already done, Hensler said. In December, attendance was just 54,000, down from 113,000 visitors the year before. To help make up the lost revenue, Hensler said, no advertising money was spent during the Easter season or in July, two big attendance periods in the past. "Attendance took a dive," Hensler said. From January to March, attendance dropped to 328,958. down 70,071 from a year earlier. From April to June. attendance was 475,500, down from 576,000 in 1983. Yokel says he hopes that open-air concerts and the opening of Metrozoo's aviary will bring more residents to the zoo in the coming year. Dade residents make up more than half of the visitors to Metrozoo, Yokel noted. With no major exhibits opening in the last year. many local residents haven't had an incentive for a return visit, he said. Hensler, meanwhile, said Metrozoo plans to soon hire an advertising agency and organize a new promotion campaign. He hopes to spend more than twice the amount on marketing the zoo in 1984-85: about $350,000. Zoo officials also plan to get corporate sponsors for several discount ticket campaigns, such as a high. ly successful two-for-one sales promotion that was co-sponsored by Burger King two years ago. Officials said, however, that it's unlikely any boosts in attendance will reduce Metrozoo's tax subsidy. At "We're easing the taxpayers' burden as much as we can," said Hensler. "I wish we could do better." President Anastasio Somoza Debayle and brought the Sandinistas to power has so far refused to cooperate with the FDN because it Includes many former Somoza officials and military men. Ca liejas said South Florida's Nicaraguan exiles will discuss the pact at a 7 p.m. meeting tonight at Sweetwater City Hall. "We want to ask their support of this conciliation effort." Ca Ilejas said. According to Ca Ilejas, most Nicaraguan exiles in Miami cannot contribute much money to the fight in Nicaragua because they don't have U.S. work permits. "But the moral support we get from them is sufficient at this stage," he said. Ca liejas said FDN and ARDE expect their unity to improve their chances to get Increased international funding for their fighters. Millions of dollars have been poured into the anti-Sandinista fight by the U.S. government, with most of the money channeled to FDN fighters on Nicaragua's PAROLE, from 1 A murder sentence after both the prosecutor and trial judge recommended that she be granted clemency. Abe Ila. a Cuban immigrant and mother of nine who already has spent three years in prison, was convicted in 1981 of murdering the newborn she had helped her 15-year-old daughter deliver at the family's North Miami home. Harry Dodd. staff director of the Parole Commission, defended his examiner's recommendation. "You have to understand our role," Dodd said. -We recommend a presumptive parole date that is based on guidelines. The guidelines which the commission Is not required to follow provide that a person convicted of first-degree murder who has no prior criminal record spend at least 10 years in prison. Thus, examiner Babb has recommended that Abe Ila serve the minimum sentence under the guidelines and receive credit for the three years she already has spent at the Broward Correctional Facility, Dodd said.. He acknowledged that the recommendation tils to take into account the unusua!ii natureand circumstances of the crime. say construction site at about 8 a.m. when he hit a bump 'n the road and the sand-filled truck overturned.

The Reagan administration has requested $28 million in its 1985 budget for the rebels, commonly known as contras. Congress refused in June to appropriate additioinal 1984 funds to the CIA's Covert support of the contras. Zampieri said the two groups will retain control of their respective zones, but plan to establish a common command group. He added that Pastora left ARDE primarily because he was not in agreement with the direction negotiations with the FDN were taking over the just-reached pact. "The door is open" for Pastora to return, Zampleri said. Sacasa said the agreement includes: 10' A pledge to "struggle united until our country. oppressed by the Marxist-Leninist totalitarian regime and occupied by foreign troops. is freed," and to "struggle The Miami News MICHAEL DELANEY against any attempt to bring back the past." V A call for a transitional government of "national conciliation" composed of opponents of Somoza and the Sandinistas, which will democratize Nicaragua and hold free elections within a year. V A salute to "heroic volunteers in this struggle for freedom" who have died or gone to prison. V Support for the "civic struggle" waged against the Sandinistas by democratic organizations in Nicaragua. S' Denunciation of the "obstinacy" of the Sandinistas because they allegedly "frustrated the actions" of inter-American organizations that sought to avoid war in Nicaragua. A pledge to combine the efforts of "all those who sincerely struggle against the Sandinista totalitarianism." v A call to "eradicate tyranny, halt the threat of Soviet expansionism and establish durable peace with justice." ing that those elements are for the commission to decide. not a parole examiner. The Cabinet took into account the totality of the circumstances." Dodd said. "And so will the commission when it decides the case. But right now, (Abe Ila) stands convicted of first-degree murder and we're attempting to be consistent from one case to the next in the application of parole guidelines." While Dodd refused to speculate as to when the Parole Commission ultimately will release Abe Ila, he conceded that the date may be far sooner than the one recommended and possibly as early as Aug. 29, when the commission tentatively is scheduled to rule in the case. Meanwhile, Stark said yesterday he remains hopeful that his client will be released from prison in a matter of weeks. "This lady committed no crime," Stark said. She needed no rehabilitation. and for damn sure she needs no additional rehabilitation. What she needs and what her family needs is for her to be home." Stark said. While the lawyer refused to offer a prediction on when Abe Ila will be released, he said he has "every hope. and feel ttkst it would be an injustice, if she were n4.4, released immediately." ilfiarine beaten by Soviet police, embassy reports Alusciated Press MOSCOW Six plainclothes and uniformed Soviet police of beat a U.S. Marine attached to the consulate in Leningrad and then held him In a police station for two hours, a U.S. Embassy spokesman said today. An embassy source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the Marine was attacked by six men who drove up to the sidewalk on which he was walking. Three men held the Marine as the others punched and kicked him, the source said. The embassy spokesman, Jaroslay Verner, said the Marine did not require hospitalization after yesterday's attack and that officials believe he did not suffer any permanent injury. Werner said he assumed the Marine was not in uniform because he was off duty at the time of the attack. The Marine's name was being withheld pending notification of his relatives, Werner said. Verner said the attack took place on a Leningrad street early yesterday morning. He said the embassy had lodged a protest with the Soviet Foreign Ministry in JOBLESS, frm lA Since March, when state unemployment stood at 5.5 percent, the rate has risen 1.5 percentage points. Many labor market analysts view increases of more than one percentage point as significant. "There does look like something might be developing, but I don't know what yet," Cruse said. Florida's July labor force totaled 5.1 million, of which 357,000 were unemployed. In June the Florida labor market amounted to just over 5 million people, with 338,- 000 umemployed. The state's June jobless rate was 6.7 percent. In July 1983, Florida unemployment stood at 8.5 percent. In July, Florida had the fourth lowest unemployment rate among the nation's ten largest states, behind Massachussets. Texas and Actress Kim Novak's mother, a Cape Coral retiree, dies Associated Press GENEVA, Ill. Actress Kim Novak's mother, Blanche Marie Novik of Cape Coral, Fla., has died at age 77. She died Tuesday at Community Hospital here. A private service was planned in Florida. A native of Chicago's West Side, Blanche Novak was the daughter of a precinct captain. She worked for many years as a seamstress for the Formfit Co. She married Joseph Novak in 1928 and they raised two daughters, Arlene and Marilyn. Marilyn, known to her family as Mickey, became a Hollywood sensation in the 1950s as actress Kim Novak. 'Vice' star, director set record straight on reported scene of police brutality STEVE KONICKI and RUTH COOK Mount News howlers A co-star and the director of the "Miami Vice" TV series say they don't know what all the shouting has been about over an episode that reported-V' ly includes a scene e.!!..,,r,.,"""". in which a police , officer brutalizes a , suspect. They say , , they've never seen a scene like that in any script. Katzin The only version that co-star Don Johnson or director Lee Katzin ever saw does include a scene in which a street cop is slammed into a wall by his supervisor, played by Johnson, after the cop jokingly says he could use his nightstick which he calls "Uncle Rod'! to beat a murder confession out of a suspect. "In our opinion, the police have been nothing but really helpful," said Johnson. "We want to do everything we can to show the police in the best possible light. After all, we're portraying policemen in this show and we're the good guys." Metro Police Lt. Pete Cuccaro quit his job as consultant for the show after claiming a scene being shot here this week showed officers brutalizing a suspect. Cuccaro could not be reached for comment. Cuccaro's claims stirred up a controversy over the depiction of police brutality. County Manager Merrett Stierheim, who met privately earlier this week with John Nicoletta, the show's associate producer, said yesterday he was told that the script did not contain a scene depicting police brutality. "He indicated that the scene had been changed before any of this (controversy) came up," Stierheim said. "And you can quote me on that." Steirheim also said he and Metro Police Director Bobby Jones will not get advance screenings of the series. "I will see it when you and everybody else do," he said, referring to the show's fall debut. He also said Jones has given tentative approval for actors to wear authentic Metro police uniforms and drive identifiable Metro police cars. Stierheim who had worried about what the show could do to the city's Image, had asked the producers to change the show's name, but was told that would not be done. Katzin, the series' director. said the script he was given well before this week's shooting did not contain any scene in which a police officer brutalized a suspect. "The way it is written, it is an officer who is slammed into the wall by another officer," Katzman said. During an interview in the motor home that serves as his dressing room, Johnson, who plays a sergeant named Crockett, said he did not understand the furor. "I do the slamming against the wall," said Johnson. "I am a police sergeant and I slam a police officer against the wall. "What we are doing here is showing this police supervisor keeping his subordinates in line." said Johnson. "We are criticizing (the street cop) for acting this way. After a reporter told him the way Johnson said the plot unfolded. Steirhelm said: "I would react positively to that. We are extremely sensitive to how police conduct is portrayed. But I would react positively to that. "I never saw the script or heard how the plot would unfold. I'm leaving that up to the director."

The embassy source said the Marine went off duty at midnight Wednesday and then went to the Marine quarters, where he watched a movie and had "two mixed drinks." The source said the Marine then decided to take a walk near the consulate. A car had been circling the consulate area for some time, the embassy source said. He said the people inside the car motioned for the Marine to approach them, indicating they were seeking directions. The Marine approached the car, the source said, and suddenly an official Soviet police car with three uniformed men pulled up. The three policemen and three people from the other car jumped out and attacked the Marine, the source said. In May, an embassy official said Harms, the vice consul in Leningrad. was assaulted and kicked by two Soviets as he left a restaurant on April 17. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Harms did not require hospitalization. New Jersey. Of the national figures, Bureau of Labor Statistics analyst Deborah Klein said: "What it seems to be is a reversal of everything which took place the month before, and took many people by surprise, which suggests that (June's) improvement was somewhat overstated." "What is unclear at the moment is what this is really signaling," Klein said. "What it says is, We're not exactly sure of the trend." The increase was the steepest one-month gain since joblessness rose from 9.5 percent to 9.9 percent from June to July 1982. In advance of today's report, several private analysts said the days of plunging unemployment were numbered and forecast only minimal improvement for the rest of the year. Kim Novak described her mother in a 1957 interview as "more than just a housewife; she is my Inspiration and the reason for my success." Blanche Novak and her husband also tried films, appearing in the movie "Notorious Landlady," which starred their daughter. They retired to Florida in 1962.
