(AP Wirephoto) Colombia Uncovers Plot To Kidnap High Officials BOGOTA, C o 1 o m b i Local papers reported Saturday that a plot by radical leftist groups to kidnap military men and diplomats had been uncovered. .Official reports did not go that far, saying only that recent arrests or members of the urban branch of the Castroits National Liberation Army led the capture of important contacts, among them a Swedish journalist, Karl Staaf, who was expelled from Colombia last Wednesday, and to the author of an attempt against a Colombian general early this year. Quoting what is called reliable sources, El Tiempo said Guenadi Kopenko, an officer of the Russian Embassy, was in vplved in the plot. It described him as "high-ranking agent for the Soviet KGB secret police, specializing in civil intelligence." The Soviet Embassy declined comment. The alleged plot was directed by the National Liberation Army, the press reports say, and included the kidnaping of two unnamed important diplomats, a high military chief, the representative of an international finance agency and a police chief. The weak Colombian Communist party has strongly protested the vave of arrests in the last three weeks, calling it 'a smoke screen' by President Misael Pastrana's government to divert attention from "major !olombian problems affecting its people in search of liberation."

N. Viets Attempt Supply Blockade By Holger Jensen SAIGON--wv-Bnemy gunners began a "blockade by fire" on Highway 1 Saturday, halting supply convoys of ammunition and food to South Vietnamese troops fighting in the provincial capital of Quang Til Field informants characterized Die Nprbh Vietnamese ac- ,ioii as a hindrance rather than a major threat to the 20,000-man government task force now waging a counteroffensive in Quang Tri Province. They noted that trucks still can bring supplies into Quang Tri up coastal Route 555, also teown as the "Street Without Joy" and boats and helicopters are resupplying South Vietnamese marines in the eastern part of the province. The marines have completed construction of one supply base on the South China Sea coast east of Quang Tri. The 33-mile stretch of Highway 1 between Hue and Quang Tri serves largely as a supply route for several thousand government paratroopers engaged in house-to-house fighting for control of the south and south' east sectors of the provincial capital. A North Vietnamese battalion of 300 men outflanked the government troops three days ago, fought its way through South Vietnamese infantrymen responsible for road security behind the paratroopers and took up positions within 200 yards of Highway 1 about 10 miles south- east of Quang Tri. From there they are firing on all government vehicles with mortars, rocket-propelled grenades and recoile« rifles. Field reports indicate the enemy are dug in to withstand repeated air strikes by American jets and barrages from South Vietnamese artillery. Two battle* also were reported ·round Checkmate, a con- tested hflltop outpost 12 milet southwest of Hue which has changed hands more than six times in recent weeks and now is considered a no man's land. North Vietnamese shell fire hit Ctmp Eagle, headquarters of South Vietnam's 1st Infantry Division six miles south of Hue, blowing up an ammunition dump that burned for 3% hours. No major fighting was reported at Bong Son, a district town on the central coast that was re o c c u p i e d by government forces Friday after nearly three months under North Vietnamese control. shop mondays and fridays 10 to 9 phon* 346-0981 MOWS THE TIME TO CHALK UP BIG SAVINGS ON NEXT WINTER'S OUTERWEAR FOR BOYS' AND GIRLS ...
