They will be offered 'asylum' Jak boldng the couple'a child Agatha w ~ however. UNTFAX rive at the Immigration service yesterday Gypsies Offered Asylum In A merica n 'Paradise 9 By BARBARA REHM NEW YORK (UPI) - Helen Hornjak bit her fingernails, her husfoand Jan watched ships steam toward the Statue of Liberty and their 4-year-old daughter Agatha danced barefoot in the immigration hearing room. The three gypsies and Mrs. H>o r n j a k's brother Robert Kobmpar, 20, had left Poland, had been turned away by three nations and now wanted to stay in the United States because it was "like paradise." But U.S. Immigration Court Judge J. J. Mack ruled Tuesday they could not, legally enter the country because they arrived without valid passports. That, however, leaves open the possibility for asylum in the United States, said a spokesman for the Immigration Service. Not Legal The government first would ask Italy to accept the gypsies because they stayed there for a "substantial time," he said. "If the Italians refuse to accept them, we wild then consider deporting them to Poland but before doing so we will give them an opportunity for asy Hum. We want to avoid yo-yoing them back and forth." "I am happy. We will work hard. I don't remember a moment in my life happier than now," said Mrs. Hornjak, 23, when the hearing ended. "I have dreamed of America for a long time. It is like paradise." "We will not go back to Poland," she said, and hugged | her daughter. "I am afraid to return to Poland. I will ask to stay. I wild pray and beg them to let me stay here. But we won't go back." Before the hearing began, Mrs. Hornjak sat in the back row, slipped off her shoes and tucked her feet under her pink and yellow gown. Agatha, wearing a homeHmade white skirt and thick gold and red earings, danced barefoot behind her mother. Dark Eyes Jan Hornjak, 24, sat across the aisle from his wife. At times, his dark eyes glanced out the window to the Hudson River below. Ships steamed down it toward Ellis Island, for (generations the gateway to America for millions of immigrants, and on to the Statue of Liberty. "They were persecuted as gypsies," said Joel M. Greenberg, their attorney. "They want only freedom and they (have no other place to go. They told me they have dreamed of America from the time they were children. They believe it [is a free country." They are staying with Lolek Lakatosch, a cousin who v came here from Poland two years ago. Already, they have been offered jobs, Greenberg said. "I will take care of mem," said Lakatosch. "They like America and the people here are good. We have a good life." Senate Probe Of 'Privacf Is Scheduled WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen. Henry M.
