By the time the red-and-white airliner touched down at Algiers, only 19 hostages remained — 12 passengers and seven crew members. Senate Ends 2-Week Filibuster; Stage Set For Compromise WASHINGTON (UPI) ~ With anger and bitter words, with rhetoric nnd a show of parliamentary power, yet with touches of humor, the Senate ended its two-wecK filibuster and set the stage for a compromise on natural gas pricing. "We had the rug pulled out from under us," said Sen. James Abourezk, D-S.D., as he and fellow filibusters Howard Mclzenbaum, D-Ohio, called off their delaying tactics Monday night. The latest compromise, proposed after the Senate cleared away the filibuster, is by Sen. Henry Jackson, DWash., chairman of the Senate Energy Committee. Prices for newly produced natural gas would be allowed to increase to $2.03 per thousand cubic feet immediately, scaling up to $3.48 by 1985. It would extend federal controls to sales of gas in the states of production now, but free new gas from all regulations in 1987. At present only gas sold in the interstate market is regulated. Jackson said Energy Secretary James Schlesinger, President Carter's chief energy adviser, did not endorse the plan but said he would not object to it. Sens. James Pearson, RKan., and Lloyd Bontscn, DTcx., leaders of the deregulation forces, had wanted to postpone deregulation only two years, with interim prices around ,52.50 per thousand cubic feet, and .strongly opposed extending the controls to the intrast'ate market. " ' Both praised Jackson Monday for trying to find a route to decision, but withheld judgment 'on the proposal itself. With Vice President Walter Mondale presiding. Democratic and" Republican leaders won Senate approval Monday of four key ,rulings to throw out the hundreds of amendments used bythcfilibusterers. The rulings allowed the presiding Senate officer to discard amendments he considered designed for delay and to refuse to allow certain timeconsumirig motions and roll calls. Individual senators were allowed to withdraw their own amendments. Armed w i t h ' t h o s e parliamentary cudgels. Democratic leader Robert Byrd called up more than 30 amendments at a rapid clip Monday and Mondale ruled them out of order immediately. Dozens more were'withdrawn.' At that point Abourezk realized his remaining 100 amendments were threatened and futile, and called ari end to the .fight. ,, Sen. Paul Sarbanes. D-Md,, said the Byrd maneuver would "establish a dictatorship in the Senate," and Sen. Gary Hart, D-Colo., called it "an abuse of leadership authority."' t Byrd.'red-faced and shaking, responded, "What 'about' the abuse pi the rules that every senator has been subjected lo for the last i:i days and one night?" Some called Byrd's move "a steamroller," but Sen. James Allen, R-Ala., rose to say he had- been hit by a steamroller in his day, and "...I can observe the body of the distinguished senator from South Dakota has not been flattened." Abourezk .stood up "on a point of personal privilege because the shape of my body has been impugned," Abourezk said. "I can't help it if I'm fat." Is Your Tee-Pee Foil? Then,..

Ukrainian Catholics Are Hinting They May Break Church Ties VATICAN CITY (UPI) -. Ukrainian Catholics accused the Vatican today of unwitting collaboration with the Soviet Union to destroy their church and hinted they might break' their ties with Roman Catholicism. The accusations were made by the World Federation of Ukrainian Patriarchal Societies at a Vatican City news conference. About 1,000 Ukrainians were visiting the Vatican on the occasion of the 6flth anniversary in the priesthood of Cardinal Josyf Slipyj, 85, major patriarch of the Ukraine.- The Ukranians were protesting continued refusal of Pope Paul VI to recognize Slipyj as a patriarch, a title and position accorded other Eastern Rile church leaders. "President Vatican policies have aroused serious ferment among Ukrainians who are anxious to preserve their loyalty to the Holy See but who also fear that the price of this unity would be the eventual destruction of their-particular -church," the Ukrainian 'Patriarchal Society said. "Are Vatican policies toward ,the Ukrainian Catholic Church not a bad road mark to Christians not yet in union with the Holy See but launched on the path of ecumenism?" the society asked. Not only is the Vatican refusing'to recognize Slipyj as a .patriarch, the society said,- but it is also'intensifying problems with the Ukrainians by trying "to impose upon the Ukrainian Catholic church th.^e ' requirement for a celibate clergy. "The Vatican Curia circles are trying to strip the office of the major archbishop of th'e rights derived from the same.", the society said. "They want W. make it purely honorific. This is a death blow to the cohesion of the Ukranian Catholic Church as a separate and complete unit." Mel Kenyon To Talk At Burlington Church BEEF SPECIALS ROUND STEAK.
