I2K --July 27,1975 Sunday Released American Student 'Fine Now That I'm Free' DAR ES SALAAM. Tanzania American student Stephen Smith, heavily bearded after 10 weeks of captivity in a jungle camp, arrived here Saturday for an emotional greeting by friends after being freed by African guerrillas. "It's good to be free." said Smith. 22. of Garden Grove. Calif., as he stepped from a chartered twin-engine plane that flew him from Kigoma in western lanza- i nia. Guerrillas i from the Popular Revolutionary party (PRP) had held him captive for 69 days in a remote jungle region of Zaire and released him Friday. He then traveled by boat to Smith Kigoma, 660 miles, west of here, for the flight to the capital. Stanford University of Palo Alto. Calif., for which Smith works as a research assistant, paid a $14.000 ransom for his release after troubled and protracted negotiations with the rebels. They had kid- naped Smith and three other students from a remote animal research base in western Tanzania on May 19. * « * THE OTHER THREE were freed earlier. Barbara Smuts of Ann Arbor, Mich., was released a week after the kidnaping to carry ransom demands to Tanzanian authorities. The other two--Carrie Hunter of Atherton. Calif., and Emilie Bergmann of Holland-were released last month. Miss Hunter and Miss Bergmann were at Dar Es Salaam airport to greet Smith when he arrived with his father, 61-year- old Joseph Smith, who has kept a lonely vigil in Tanzania for weeks waiting for his son to be freed. Early Saturday Smith had a nine-minute phone call with his mother, Mrs. Mitti Smith, who's in Garden Grove. The girls embraced the deeply-tanned Smith and handed him flowers and a bottle of champagne. Smith, bewildered by the reception, said: "I i don't know what to do. .I've never been famous before." Tanzanian security Mrs. Smith men then took Smith to a room in the airport terminal to question him about his captors. They spoke to Smith behind closed doors for about IVz hours. U.S. Embassy officials were not allowed to enter the room despite protests. Smith emerged from the interrogation smiling and in high spirits. "I feel fine now that I'm free," he told newsmen. He appeared to be fit and well, although friends said they had trouble recognizing him behind his bushy beard. He was later taken to the U.S. Embassy to meet with Ambassador Beverley Carter, who had battled for weeks for his release. m Sheriff Has Skeleton in Closet Gov. Moore Commencement Speaker HOT SPRLNGS, Ark. # - Sheriff Leon Barlow has a skeleton ia his closet. It's been there for 10 years. "It was found in a little room in the basement of the courthouse," Barlow said Saturday. "It was just kept in there where the county stores a lot of odds and ends." The skeleton was discovered Wednesday when a state official was searching for records. Barlow said the skeleton probably went unnoticed all these years because the room doesn't have a light. The sheriff said his records indicate the body was found between 10 and 12 years ago, possibly by two hikers. He speculated that the late Sheriff Duffy Searcy stored the bones for possible further investigation. Barlow said it will be difficult to identify the skeleton. "Of course, we'll do what we can. Barlow said coroner Dr. W. R. Lee probably was the best source of information about the case, since Lee was coroner when the bodv was discovered. Moore to Speak at M.H. Graduation Gov. Moore will give the main address at Morris Harvey College's 1975 summer commencement at 11 a.m. Aug. 15 in the Geary Auditorium of Riggleman Hall. In addition, Gov. Moore will receive an honorary doctor of laws degree. Also scheduled to speak is the Rev. Basil A. Hensley, district superintendent of the Weston district of the United Methodist Church. Mr. Hensley will receive an honorary doctor of divinity degree. College President Marshall Buckalew will preside over the commencement. It will be his last official day as president of the college. Swimming Record SALISBURY, Rhodesia -(*- Twelve schoolgirls at Oriel High School have claimed the world marathon swimming, record after swimming a total of 462 miles in relays over a 168-hour period. Eastern Coal's Business Up BOSTON (AP) - Eastern Associated Coal Corp.'s business has improved materially this year, mainly as a result of increased revenue from higher coal prices, according to the quarterly report of Eastern's parent firm, Eastern Gas and Fuel Associates. Demand remained strong and prices continued to rise during the second quarter of this year. However, the firm said, "coal production was slightly less for the first six months this year compared with last year because of additional days off granted union employes ... and because of somewhat lower productivity, offset to some degree by fewer unauthorized work stoppages." Eastern said the lower productivity "resulted primarily from the continuing impact of health and safety regulations · and the requirement for additional underground union employes under the new contract." Efforts by reporters to locate Lee since Wednesday"have been to no avail. "I don't know if he'll be able to call you back," Lee's secretary said. "He's been awfully busy lately." The remains have been turned over to Gross Mortuary. Barlow said. Charles Brenner of the funeral home said the skeleton is being kept in "the preparation room." He said the funeral home couldn't place the skeleton in a casket "until the family of the deceased picks one out." He said the skeleton will have to be buried in a pauper's grave if no family is located. "Of course we can't bury it at all until the sheriff's office takes some action," Brenner said. JAMES T.
