* Concorde Continued (com pa^f 1 arrival. Many in the crowd had binoculars and cameras, they ate hoi dogs and cheeseburgers sold by vendors, who did a brisk business. Inside the airport, dignitaries dined on lobster al a buffet provided by the two Among the British passengers was Edinburgh bus driver John Trotter, who applied 12 years ago for a ticket to take a 3,658-mile break from his habitual eight-mile routine. American businessman Myron Karne, another passenger on British Airways' pioneer flight, said before boarding he had just signed a HH.OOO contract in Britain. "The marvel is," he said, "that I will be in Washington in lime to sign another major contract there." Boarding the French plane, Alftred Huele of Milwaukee, Wis., said: "It's the adventure. I've aspired to fix this plane ever since it was on the drawing boards". A) PiesiX of McKeesport, Pa., said, ''I'm eicited about it but 1 don't knowwhat to feel. It's a feeling of being part of history, I guess." PiesiX and his friend Bill Spears of Pittsburgh, Pa., flew to Paris especially for the flight and paid for it out of their own pockets. Spears, a businessman who frequently travels, said "I feel it's a better way for me. I will use the Concorde. Any advancement in aviation is a big factor for me." The 3,658-mile crossing from London was scheduled to take 3 hours and 49 minutes, four hours less than subsonic flight. The round-trip fare of $1,300 is 30 per cent more than the nor- mal first-class lore. The passengers on 'the inaugural flight were to spend most of their flight time eating ami drinking, judging by the menu on the British plane. The menu: caviar or pate de foiegras; fresh salmon with asparagus and cucumber; steak, grilled lamb cutlets or quail in brandy and truffle sauce; mushrooms in cream sauce, trench beans and poiatocs; salad of fresh palm hearts from the Seychelles Islands; pineapple and fruit salad, cheese and coffee. To drink: red Bordeaux, white Chablis and Dom Per- ignon 1969 champagne, "a very expensive vintage," said a British Airways spokesman. The two captains, Brian Calvert on the British Concorde and Pierre Duval on the French, were to keep in touch wilh each other on the flight by- radio. Bui they were to be several minutes apart in (be air and would not sight each other until they landed, British Airways said. The flights today launch a 16- month trial whfch the British and French governments hope will convince the major American airlines that they, too, must invest in the most expensive plane in airline history. The price now is $65 million to $70 million each, and the British government says that represents a loss of $13 million per plane. British Airways plans two flights a week to Washington and back, while Air France plans three between Paris and the U.S. capital. But the key to the Concorde's success is service between Europe and New York, which the Port of New' York Authority has blocked pending further studies of the effects of supersonic flights.

(AP) - Boxer Oscar Bonavena was married Feb. 19 to one of the girls who worked at the brothel where he was shot to death, county records show. The Argentine heavyweight obtained a marriage license to wed Cheryle Ann Rebideaux, 20, of Reno, and was married the same day, Washoe County Recorder Ardis Broun said Sunday. The marriage was later annulled, however. Storey County Sheriff Bob Del Carlo identified the woman as having been registered as a prostitute at the Mustang Ranch brothel where Bonavena was killed Saturday. The validity of the marriage was in question with reports from Buenos Aires indicating Bonavena was separated but not divorced from his Argentine wife. Washoe District Court Judge Carson talks at alma mater NORFOLK, Neb. (AP) Television talk show host Johnny Carson told graduating seniors at his high school alma mater that he came to town for several reasons. "And the most important was to see if they changed the movie at the Granada Theater any moreoftenthantheydidwhen I was here." Carson, host of NBC's Tonight Show, was the principal speaker at commencement exercises Sunday night for 120 NorfoUt High School seniors. John Gabriel!! said Sunday the Bonavena-Rebideaux marriage was later annulled. He would not give details, saying it was a routine matter and that it involved a closed hearing and sealed records. Gabrielli said he could not recall when the marriage was annulled, but said it probably was within 10 days of the marriage. Miss Rebideaux' whereabouts wtre unknown Sunday and Del Carlo said efforts were underway to locale her. Bonavena was shot through the heart outside the main gate of the brothel, located in Storey Counly about 12 miles east of Reno. . Booked for investigation of murder was Willard Ross Brymer, 31, of Sun Valley, Nev., identified as a guard at the bouse of prostitution. Storey County officials said Brymer was transferred from; the tiny Virginia City jail to the maximum security section of he Nevada State Prison in Car- xn City, a move they said was not unusual. Del Carlo said Sunday he had not found a motive for the killing, but he said the fighter and his manager, Sally Conforte, the wife of brothel owner Joe Conforte, had received death threats. Mrs. Conforte.told polke she was threatened while attempting to help Bonavena obtain a new passport.

' Under the law, the defense counsel is prohibited from introducing any evidence of the alleged victim's previous sexual conduct unless a motion in made in chambers and the judge then decides that the evidence is relevant and "not so prejudicial as to be in- admissabte." The MCLU submitted a brief to the Supreme Court Friday as oral arguments were heard in the appeal by Stanley Curtis Hill of St. Paul. Hill, who was convicted of aggravated rape in Ramsey District Court ..did not deny lhat he had sexual intercourse wilh the woman but contended she had consented. At the trial, Hill's attorney offered to prove that the alleged victim had been living with another man and offered to prove the identity of other men with whom the woman allegedly had sexual relations. Judge David Marsden refused to allow the proposed evidence to be submitted to the Ford Continued from page 1 in Tennessee, Idaho and Nevada. Sen. Paul Laxalt of Nevada, the chairman of Cituens for Reagan, said Ford is pushing Reagan only in Oregon and Tennessee. There were 113 Democratic delegates selected in various state caucuses on Saturday. . Forty-one were uncommitted, but frontrunner Jimmy Carter picked up 27, giving him 741 delegates, almost half the 1,505 needed for the nomination. Carter claims he will get more than 100 of the 191 Democratic delegates to be picked in Tuesday's primaries. Before leaving Oregon Sunday evening to fight what is considered by both sides to be an uphill race in California, the President told reporters in Pendleton, "We had a good day yesterday. The momentum has turned our way and we hope to keep the bandwagon rolling toward a first ballot victory in Kansas City." Reagan, in Eugene, Ore., Sunday, said he was not concerned about the shift in delegates in Pennsylvania. "Those are delegates we had always counted as in his comer. We'd never counted on them," he said. In an interview in U.S. News t Worid Report, meanwhile, Reagan proposed a program to rebuild the Panama Canal, boosting the local economy by a billion dollars. Reagan has made retaining the canal a campaign issue. Reagan said in the interview he would continue to insist that any negotiations aimed at giving up U.S. sovereignty over the canal be halted. He did not provide details of the program, nor did he discuss financing. Reagan got an unfriendly- greeting at Oregon State University Sunday, and one heckler there forced him lo spend several minutes explaining his position on the canal. In other weekend developments: -Sen. Edward M. Kennedy said in an interview in the Boston Sunday Globe he thinks Carter should be the Democratic nominee if he is within 150 of the number of votes needed for nomination going to the national convention. Kennedy told Time Magazine, meanwhile, that he has no intention of seeking the presidency at this time. "Of course, I'd like to be president, but it's just not going to happen in this period of my life," he said. Wisconsin Gov. Patrick J. Lucey, a long-time associate of the Kennedy family, said he believes Kennedy would accept a genuine draft (or the nomination. —An Associated Press survey of about one-fourth of the delegates who will pick the Democratic presidential nominee showed Brown the top choice for the No. I spot on the ticket, with most of that backing coming from delegates pledged to Carter. —Arizona Rep. Morris Udall campaigned Sunday in Louisville, Ky., saying he might not "appeal to everybody on the first ballot," but that the Democratic cuivention will need more than a single ballot to pick a nominee and he'll win then. -Sen. Fran); Church, D-Idaho, told graduates at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas Sunday that the United States must "stop trying to adopt and imitate the policies of the Russians in our dealings with foreign peoples." The Democratic candidate specifically criticized the United States for intervening in civil wars in Asia and Africa, and the covert activities of the nation's intelligence network. "One of the primary otjjec- lives of the right of confrontation is to allow the defendant an opportunity to crosseiamine the witnesses against him in order to test Uieir memories and sift their consciences. "The constitutional right to confrontation is, therefore, the cornerstone of the defendant's right in a criminal case to full, and adequate cross-examination of the state's witness. Its purpose is to maximize the probability that the truth will emerge through the testimony." The brief concludes: "Despite the statute's good intention of relieving rape victims of the traditional sexist totalization they are often subjected to in court, the ef- to deny a defendant accused of sex crimes his fundamental right to confront the principal witness against him on the issue of her chastity and sexual activities as it bears on the question of consent." * Hearing Continued from page 1 rights and responsibilities of witnesses are. • "My orders are that we are there to conduct a public hearing and we stay until people are heard," Harves said. He noted this has meant some hearings lasting until 2:30 a.m., but he believes most observers have gone home satisfied" with the proceedings. Both lawyers and laymen sometimes lapse into addressing the hearing examiner as "your honor," which isn't required but gives a hint that firmness and dignity are stressed. Han-essays Minnesota is the first state to set up an independent, central corps of hearing examiners. He believes other states may follow. One of the state examiners finished up hearings last week for the Public Service Commis-' sion on a rate increase sought by Northwestern Bell Telephone Co. "We feel we shortened the hearing time about SO per cent," Harves said. • Still undiscovered by most local governments is the fact that they can hire the state hearing examiner's office to conduct local hearings. Harves guesses it will be a popular idea. "Can you imagine a mayor and City Council wanting to hold a zoning hearing in an election year? You've always got hah* the people angry. 1 think they'll be contracting with us for that sort (A thing. nisi part)'. Kissinger was described as not wanting anything from the Swedes and having no proposals to make. No concrete issues are outstanding between the two countries, the official said. In a brief statement at the Stockholm airport, Kissinger to Iran decline WASHINGTON (AP) Farm exports to Iran, once considered a potential billion- m airport, Kissinger dollar market', dropped sharply said: "We understand the last year and may not begin Swedish policy of neutrality, recovering substantially until later in 1976, the Agriculture Department said today.

"We will never forget this country's devotion to the democratic principles uniting our two countries." Recalling that some members of his family fled from Nazi Germany to Sweden, Kissinger added: "I have a Foreign Agricultural Service said.

Much of the 1975 drop occurred in the last half of the year when shipments of U.S. wheat, rice and corn dropped severely, the report said. Officials said, however, that chances "are'good" that Iran will step up purchases later this year and might end up buying as much as in 1974.
