She won the annual Royal Automobile Club Junior Pedal Car Grand Prix for up to five yean of age. (AP Wjrephoto) : . MEXICO CTTY (AP)'- A law that opponents said was part of a government plan to put homeless peasants in the spare bedrooms of the rich takes effect this month, paving the way for Mexico's first national land-Use policy. The Human Settlements Law doesn't set policy. It is a guide for future regulations to check uncontrolled growth of urban centers, regulate the real estate market, provide basic services and reduce "sectoral and geor graphical imbalances." (hie government leader noted that the law for the first time inserts the word'"planning" in land-use policy in a nation where masses of poor crowd around the capital city without mass transit, water systems . and other public services. The new statute creates the machinery for national, state and municipal government controls on the use of land. The national government is to coordinate the program, but the state governments are empow- ered to do the planning and pass the laws to carry it out. However, each state plan must be approved by the national go- yerment before it can be put into operation. When. President Luis Echeverria first proposed the legislation, there was a storm of protest from private enterprise, especially city landlords and land speculators. ; The final version approved by Congress removed much of the sting for thos* opponents. Their complaints centered on the prospect of land expropriation and the president's proposal to give municipal officials authority to regulate land use. The critics said this would permit city hall to punish landholding political enemies and could encourage landlords to use bribery in the pursuit of quick profits. Some private business groups were reported sending survey teams, posing as government agents, to tell homeowners they would be forced to provide FRESHLY GROUND Hamburger -n#?S5W5fc. ^B^ WILSON'S CERTIFIED BEIF CHUCK ROAST BLADE .

Echeverria accused opponents of the legislation of holding clandestine meetings in Monterrey, Mexico's second largest city and the traditional center of business opposition to the government. The Monterrey businessmen admitted they had met, but they denied their did so in secret. They said they were only exercising their constitutional right to assemble and criticize the government. The Congress transferred regulatory powers frommunici- pal to state governments. Language was, added stating the law was not ah attack on private property itself, and machinery was set up providing property owners the right of appeal. The law as approved even includes a paragraph specifically stating that peasants won't be lodged in the homes of the rich. The Congress approved an Interior and Housing Commission report attached to the bill saying expropriations will be authorized only through existing constitutional amendments. After the House of Deputies and the Senate removed some of the most controversial parts of the legislation, it breezed through a special legislative session. Echeverria signed it last month, and it becomes law June 24. Echeverria told the U.N. Human Settlements Conference in Vancouver this week the new law seeks "a more just distribution of wealth, balanced development of the country, harmonizing relations between cities and the countryside, impeding the unnecessary sacrifice of farm land, fair distribution of the benefits and costs of urban growth, creation of favorable conditions for the expansion of housing programs, decongestion of big cities, decentralization of economic, cultural, political and administrative activities related to a harmonious regional development, and, in synthesis, to better the quality of life in human settlements." By IRVING DEBTOR AP NewsfeatvKt Ron Galella, « controversial and successful candid photographer of celebrities, presents a glittering parade of stars to justify his title In his new book, "OFFGUARD: A Paparazzo Look at the Beautiful People." The procession of personalities proceeds through more than 350 images accompanied by admiring, colorful or revealing. comments by the author, candid in words as well as in pictures. The world's celebrities, he says, normally hire press agents to present a posed, packaged and prefabricated look, all glossied over for public approval: He, however, is after the natural, spontaneous look which presents the non- plastidsed core of the stars in their imposed moods and moments. . ,, It is not an easy job, Galella reports. In fact, it is hazardous and risky. In pursuit of his pictures, he says he has: had his jaw broken by Marlon Brando; been beaten by Richard Burton's bodyguards; been soaked by a high-pressure hose by friends of Brigitte Bardot; and been chased by Secret Service agents with . instructions to smash his camera. Despite the threats, occasional violence.-- and sometimes a display of folly which brings public humiliation -- Galella sums up the pros and cons and makes this assessment: "But I don't care. I see myself as the dean .of American paparazzo photo-journalism, a self-appointed role, perhaps, but one I figure I've paid the dues to own. I love my work -and I'm good at it. Maybe the best at it." His aim is not to strip the celebrity of glamour by catching him unaware, he explains. On the contrary, his purpose is to reveal the real glamour which made the celebrity a star in the first place, but which is often hidden after stardom is achieved. That's why he stalks his subjects unannounced to catch them offguard, to reveal them candidly and honestly. Galella credits Italian film director Federtco Fellinl for popularizing the paparazzo style of · ON GUARD! Photographing celebrities can be risky. Ron Galella wears a protective helmet for a Marlon Brando appearance in 1974, having had his jaw broken previously by the star. This photo by Paul Schmulbach appears in Galella's new book, "OFFGUARD: A Paparazzo Look at the Beautiful People." photography. He created a character, Signer Paparazzo, in his film La Dolce Vita. The signer was a photographer who prowled Rome's Via Veneta continually shooting Candida of the city's celebrities. The name soon symbolized the distinctive type of Italian freelance cameramen who haunted night clubs and hide-aways where stars and their companions who preferred to remain incognito were their targets. Galella adopted and defends the paparazzo approach. "We're talking about completely unrehearsed photography," he says, "where the expression and gesture are thoroughly spontaneous and unique to the moment and circumstance. You have to go after people where and when you can discover them in natural situations, without appointments and without an alert of any kind." When celebrities control the situation through public relations people, the photos from such sessions are lifeless, canned and .show nothing that U surprising or revealing, he bar lieves. "What results is not information biit propaganda, not news but advertising," Galella concludes. "But I believe I'm a news photographer and that it's only proper for me, like other journalists, to use my reporting materials as I choose and as I think best serves news- gathering." With his camera, he has become a private eye, outflanking bodyguards to focus on sUrs as they come and go in public places such as at airports, hotel lobbies, in streets, theaters, restaurants and at parties. Galella acknowledges this type of photography often raises the dilemma of two fundamental but opposing rights: a person's right of privacy and the public's right to be Informed about public figures. This controversy led to the famous court case brought by M r s . Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, with a countersuit by Galella, each claiming haras* ment. Confuse your taste buds.
