Martine and Jutta Zacher, 24- year-old German twins in whose apartment ^ Getty was staying at the time of his disappearance, told police they noticed three "sUspicious^look- ing".men who seemed to be following the youth in a - dark car.. Another friend, photographer Carlo Scimone, sail Getty pointed the men out to him recently but did not se6m to be upset by them, police said. They said they were not sure, however, if the three men were the same youths with whom Getty was talking in the Piazza Navona on Tuesday. Both Mrs. Getty and police discounted reports that Getty had been seen leaving a yacht at Bastia on the island of Corsica with a young blonde girl. "I have spoken with all our friends who have yachts and none of them could have taken him on board," Mrs. Getty said. "I doubt he could have rented one either because when. he. left home Monday night he had only $85 in his pocket."

UNITED NATIONS (UPI) ^ Undef pressure from Arab and African countries, the General Assembly shelved actibri to deal with international terrorism last year. But the issue itself was not killed and discussion of it by a special 35-member committee resumed today. The subject remains as delicate and controversial as it was when it first came up. The committee will confer for four weeks on the subject and recommend action when the assembly opens its session in September. Global Terrorism When Secreatry General Kurt Waldheim put the issue of global terrorism before last fall's assembly, the world was still shocked by the slaying of 11 members of the Israeli team at the Olympic Games and a scries of attacks against civil aircraft in various parts of the world. Arab extremists were responsible in every case. Arab extremists were responsible in those cases but there also were incidents of Israeli retaliation, including the slaying of guerrilla leaders in Beirut in a ; daring raid in the center of the Lebanese capital. Secretary of State William P. Rogers also introduced a proposed treaty to deal with global terrorism, but later the United States decided instead to Seek a General Assembly conference early this year that would consider international action to combat terrorism. But the assembly, under pressure; from Arab and African countries fearful iKat international measures to curb terrorism might become^weapr, ons against national liberation movements they support, voted. 76-35 to delay any action^ The approved resolution condemned "repressive and terrorist acts by colonial /racist and alien regimes" but did not deal with the subject in a global sense. ,'.
