2 Port l-Thurv, June 19, 1975 lot Snsrlrf Zimti if Catholics Trapped by Lisbon Leftists Rescued f. i a 'KK: k- 7 i I A 700 Protesters Evacuated From Refuge lillBv -Oil Joseph P. Kennedy III WINNING MATCH Tennis star Evonne Goolagong and English metal broker Roger Cawley on way to Canterbury for register office wedding. AP Wfrcphoto GIRL IN KENNEDY CRASH GETS NEARLY $1 MILLION From Rcutm LISBON Troops today evacuated about 700 Roman Catholics trapped all night by angry left-wing extremists in the palace of the archbishop of Lisbon, as Portugal's military leaders appealed for calm. The Catholics, mostly women, were pelted with garbage and showered' with insults as they were driven off in army trucks.

The last batch of about 100, including some nuns, were driven away at midday while leftists outside the palace shouted "death to Fascists." The Catholics had taken refuge in the rambling palace after trying to stage a counter-demonstration against a left-wing rally in support of workers who had occupied a Catholic radio station. The occupation has threatened to add a church-state split to Portugal's current political troubles. Portugal's 30-man Military Revolutionary Council, which in theory holds supreme power, issued a communique today saying present unrest was aimed at promoting "dictatorship of the proletariat," which it repudiated. It reaffirmed its commitment to a multiparty democracy and called for an end to "rumor-mongering and alarmist behavior." As the Catholics filed out of the archbishop's palace, soldiers of the Copcon internal security force kept leftists at bay. Nearby stood a burned-out car with a poster on it saying "this car belonged to a priest who was a member of PIDE" (the former right-wing government's secret police).

A Copcon major said about 12 Catholics were hurt in a clash with leftists before retreating to the palace Wednesday night. Another group of demonstrators kept the education minister, Maj. Jose da Silva, trapped in his office until late into the night. Communist printers today reoccu-pied the offices of the Republica newspaper, which for the past month has been involved in a tug-of-war between Socialists and Communists. Troops guarding the empty building overnight allowed the printers to enter but not the Socialist editors and management.

Furore, Pari 1, Page 5. Sex Equality Human Right Waldheim U.N. Head Addresses Opening of Women's Congress in Mexico FnM TifiMS Wirt ScnricM MEXICO CITY U.N. Secretary General Kurt Waldheim said today discrimination against women was unjust, offensive to human dignity and an infringement of human rights. It also has severe consequences for the economic and social development of nations," he said in an address at the opening here of a two-week international conference on women's rights.

"The strength of the movements that have brought us here did not emanate from women alone, but from a much wider realization of the heavy human, social and economic price that is being paid for these inequities," Waldheim said. Legislative action by nations, although important, is not sufficient in itself because "we are dealing not so much with attitudes of law, but deeply ingrained attitudes of society," he added. Waldheim and Mexican President Luis Echeverria conducted the opening ceremony attended by more than 2,000 official delegates at a large Olympics Gymnasium on the southern fringes of the city. The conference's purpose is to devise strategies that will work to ensure that every woman has equal opportunity under law and in society at large. "On a purely practical level, we simply cannot afford not to utilize the talents, experience and wisdom of one-half of those citizens if we are to meet the awesome economic and social problems facing us at the local, national and international levels," Waldheim said.

"True development and progress must depend to a large extent on the active and constructive contribution of women everywhere." he said. After referring to the success of the U.N. campaign against racial discrimination, Waldheim said, "We must now move towards an attitude in which discrimination based on sex is also generally regarded as equally deplorable and inhumane." More than 5,000 delegates and observers are attending the conference, making it one of history's largest meetings about women. Almost all of those attending are calling for equal rights for women, but not all mean the same thing. The conference, which lasts until July 2, lost as a delegate one of the most powerful women in the world, Prime Minister Indira Gandhi of India.

She canceled plans to attend because of a political crisis at home. President Maria Estela Peron of Argentina also has decided not to attend. But the world's other female head of government, Prime Minister Sirimavo Bandaranaike of Sri Lanka, is leading her country's delegation. There will be a host of other female celebrities on hand, including Soviet cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova, Cuban guerrilla fighter Vilma Espin, and American feminists Gloria Stein-Please Turn lo Page 8, Col. 1 FEATURE INDEX" ASTROLOGY.

Robert F. Kennedy has received nearly $1 million in insurance company settlements, the Boston Globe said today. Pamela Kelley, now 20, told the Globe in an interview in her Hyannis Port home, "They set me up so there's no way I could spend that money if I lived to be 102." A source with knowledge of the case told the Associated Press today the $1 million estimate was near the actual amount of the settlement. Miss Kelley was injured in August, 1973, when an open vehicle driven by Joseph P. Kennedy, now 22, overturned on a back road on Nantucket Island.

Pamela Kelley APWrtphotos Kennedy was found guilty of negligent driving and fined $100. Miss Kelley said that under the settlement all of her hospital bills were paid and she received a lump sum cash payment that is being handled for her by her father, Francis H. Kelley. She said the Kelley's new Hyannis port home not far from the Kennedy compound was paid for by her father from his savings. She said it has been placed in a trust with her as the sole beneficiary.

The Globe said the house has a replacement value of $129,000. Miss Kelley, who plans to enter Boston University this fall, said she has no bitterness against Joseph Kennedy or any of the family. "They're my friends," she said. "I love them. I love them all." Air Force commander in Europe, and Army Gen.

William B. Rosson, chief of the U.S. Southern Command in the Panama Canal Zone. For the same reason, about 2,300 colonels and Navy captains, out of a total of about 14,900 in both groups, are hurrying to retire before September. The generals and admirals stand to lose as much as $333 a month and colonels and Navy captains $76 a month in retirement pay for the rest of their lives if they stay in uniform.

Although these retirements would open wider promotion opportunities for other officers, Pentagon leaders are concerned about possible turbulence and other problems that might arise from a major turnover in command and staff posts. The defense Department has been urging Congress to change the law to cure the retired pay problem "now creating serious repercussions and dissuade those members contemplating retirement solely to avoid a loss in retired pay." MILITARY FACES HUGE EXODUS OF OFFICERS Missing Earl Found Guilty of Slaying Nanny From Timtt Wirt Strvicn LONDON A coroner's jury of six men and three women today named Lord Lucan, a missing British earl, as the killer of the family nanny. It was the first time such a jury had found a British peer guilty of murder. Lucan, a descendant of one of the generals involved in the Charge of the Light Brigade in the Crimean War, has been missing since the night of the murder. If he had been present the coroner would have ordered him arrested and held for trial by a criminal court.

In ancient times, a peer could demand trial by the House of Lords, but that right was abolished 20 years ago. Today's verdict was returned at Westminster's Coroner's Court in a dramatic climax to a four-day inquiry into the death of Sandra Rivett, 29, who was found beaten to death in the Belgravia home of Lucan's wife. Lady Vermica Lucan testified at the inquest that her husband tried to strangle her on the night Mrs. Rivett was killed. She ran into a nearby bar after she was attacked, saying: "He has murdered my nanny (child's nurse)." But in telephone calls to his mother and letters to friends, Lord Lucan claimed he was passing his estranged wife's home when he saw someone attacking her.

He said that as he entered the house the intruder ran off. Mrs. Rivett's body was found in a canvas sack at Lady Lucan's home. She had been battered to death. Parliament Elects 1st Greek President ATHENS (UPI) Parliament today elected Constantine Tsatsos, a 76-year-old former university professor, as the first president of Greece's newborn republic.

Tsatsos, the nominee of Premier Constantine Caramanlis' New Democratic Party, received 210 of 295 votes cast on the first ballot. Rampaging Monkey Puts Wrench in Jet Schedule WASHINGTON iff) More than 200 generals and admirals are expected to retire before September in a major exodus of senior military officers. The main reason for this unusually large surge of retirements is a technical quirk in the law which means they would lose substantial pension income if they remain on active duty beyond Sept. 1. Pentagon officials say at least 215 generals and admirals have either put in for retirement or are expected to do so.

They represent nearly one-fifth of the roughly 1,200 top officers in all the armed services. By comparison, before a complex ruling by the comptroller general on the retirement law brought on the problem, only 93 generals and admirals and 938 colonels and Navy captains retired during all of 1973. Among those ending military careers spanning more than 30 years are Gen. Robert E. Cushman the Marine Corps commandant; Gen.

Earl E. Anderson, assistant commandant; Adm. Worth Bagley, vice chief of naval operations; Gen. John W. Vogt GOOLAGONG WED ON HER WAY TO WIMBLEDON CANTERBURY, Eng.

I) Australian tennis star Evonne Goolagong was married today in a surprise ceremony to an English metal broker, Roger Cawley. Only the bridegroom's parents and six close friends attended the ceremony at the registry office here. The couple had been reported planning to wed in Australia in January. "We wanted our wedding to be a quiet affair," Goolagong, 23, said later at a reception in the garden of her parents-in-law. Goolagong, seeded fourth for this year's Wimbledon beginning Monday, became engaged to Cawley, 25, earlier this year.

Goolagong, who won the Wimbledon singles title in 1971, has been involved in a "love or tennis" dispute with her manager and guardian Vic Edwards. Edwards reportedly said she could not give herself to both tennis and love, but Goolagong said she had no intention of giving up tennis. nets and other equipment, including the tranquilizer dart gun which proved to be the monkey's downfall. "I tell you one thing, when he bared those teeth, he looked like he weighed about 100 pounds," Brown said. "I didn't see those big fangs when we first got in there, but after we saw those, we knew we were going to have to work something else out." When he recovers, the monkey will be shipped on to his destination, the University of Georgia.

He is to be used in behavorial research experiments there. $1 Million Bank Heist in Quebec MANICOUAGAN, Que. (UPI) Three masked men today robbed a Canadian national bank of more than $1 million in what police said was the largest Quebec bank heist in more than a decade. Quebec provincial police said "approximately $1,060,000 in cold hard cash" was taken from the Banque Canadienne Nationale. The bulk of the cash represented the bimonthly salaries of 1,500 Hydro-Quebec workers in this remote northern Quebec community, location of a huge hydroelectric dam.

Police said the three men cornered the manager at gunpoint at 8:30 a.m. and forced him to turn over the contents of the bank's safe. Within minutes, the bandits, seizing the assistant manager and using him as a shield, fled in an unmarked car. The assistant manager later was found 10 miles from the bank after officials alerted the police. British Jobless Rate LONDON iff) The number of jobless in Britain rose by 19,000 last month to 869,822, the highest level for early June since records began in 1948, the government announced today.

The number represents 3.7 of Britain's labor force of 23.5 million. INDIANS SLAIN IN 1911 Spain Bars Pretender to Throne From Returning Massacre Survivor Says ATLANTA iff) After holding his own in an Eastern Airlines 727 for more than two hours, a snarling 30-pound male Rhesus monkey was felled by a well-aimed tranquilizer dart. But before the monkey was subdued at Hartsfield International Airport, 51 suitcases had missed connecting flights, 100 passengers had been delayed and several Eastern employes were speaking with new respect for monkeys. The incident at Gate 10 began when a ramp loader discovered the snarling monkey had ripped out both sides of his cage and was running free in the baggage compartment of Eastern's Flight 905. Fred Lind, director of airport ser-.

vices for Eastern, and Hoyt Brown, manager of line services, entered the compartment armed with tarpaulins, tacked while Mike and his band were asleep. Only four children survived, Miss Estep, two sisters and a brother. Evan Estep, superintendent of the Indian agency at Ft. Hall, Id. adopted Mary Jo after the three older children died of tuberculosis.

"They never talked about what had happened," recalls Miss Estep. "I knew my parents had been killed in a massacre, but that's all. I just never asked." Earlier this year, a woman in California read the book and wrote Hyde that she had gone to school with a Mary Jo Estep, whose parents had died in an Indian massacre in Nevada. Hyde followed the trail to Yakima, where he found Miss Estep, who was graduated with a degree in music from Washinton Normal School in Ellensburg in 1934. The story told over the years in bars and taverns in northern Nevada was that the "posse braved the winter and killed the Indians." But they had the story wrong.

One Indian survived. And now the townspeople of Winnemucca hope to erect a monument on the site where Shoshone Mike and most of his Indian band died. 'It's Unreal YAKIMA, Wash, iff) "It's all so unreal!" Mary Jo Estep said after learning she is one of the last known survivors of a massacre of Indians in the United States. The year was 1911 when her mother, her father, her grandfather and seven other members of a fleeing Shoshone Indian band were massacred by a posse of whites in desolate sagebrush country of northern Nevada. Now a retired school teacher, Miss Estep, 75, said she grew up with a white family and never asked about the massacre.

Her place in Indian history was recently discovered by Dayton Hyde, an author who spent 15 years researching a novel, "The Last Free Man." This is his account of the massacre: Miss Estep's grandfather, Shoshone Mike, and a small Indian band that included her family, lived in a canyon near Twin Falls, Idaho. In 1910, Mike was charged with horse stealing, so he and his band fled. They made their way to California, then across the Sierra Nevada into Nevada. They holed up in a canyon and eventually were discovered Mary Jo Estep AP Wirephoto by ranchers. Fighting erupted, the ranchers were killed and the Indians fled, chased for more than 300 miles through Nevada Territory by a large posse.

Near Winnemucca the posse at I ft I 1 I --rf1 MADRID iff) The Spanish government today banned the pretender to the Spanish throne, Don Juan de Bor-bon Battenberg, from returning to Spain, the news agency Europa Press said. The 61-year-old Count of Barcelona was told of the Spanish government's decision at his home in Portugal by Spain's ambassador to Lisbon, Antonio Poch, the agency said. The ban apparently was imposed in response to a recent declaration by Don Juan that he, and not his son, should rightfully succeed 82-year-old Generalissimo FYancisco Franco. Franco officially has designated Prince Juan Carlos de Borbon to succeed him as chief of state and become Spain's next king. A high government official, declining to confirm or deny the ban, said the government's view was that Don Juan's claim to the throne was considered "a small incident that would not affect the future of Spain." Don Juan, the son of Spain's last king, Alfonso XIII, broke with Franco several years ago.

But he was believed to have accepted Franco's designation six years ago of the count's Don Juan 37-year-old son as Spain's next king. Since then the count has visited his son and his grandchildren in Madrid and other Spanish cities several times..
