McALESTER, Okla. (UP1) Heavily armed patrolmen moved into the smoldering grounds of the Oklahoma State Prison Sunday and peacefully put an end to a two-day inmate uprising that saw most of the penitentiary's facilities destroyed by fire and as many as four prisoners stein. Two convicts were known to be dead end 17 other inmates and three guards were injured during the weekend insurrection. Fires set by inmates caused $20 million in damage to the prison cafeteria, mess hall, hospital, rodeo grounds, factories, power plant and chapel. The cell blocks remained untouched. A spokesman for Gov. David Civil Rights March Ends In Violence BELFAST (UPI) - British troops fired rubber bullets and water cannon Sunday to disperse 2,000 rock-throwing civil rights demonstrators in what the army called the worst riot in Northern Ireland this year. An army spokesman said two soldiers were slightly injured, but gave no figures for civilian casualties. He said the riots began after 2,000 marchers from a Roman Catholic district of Belfast defied a government ban on marching to demand that two jailed leaders of the People's Democracy party be given the status of political prisoners. The marchers were halted by an army roadblock 'and the demonstrators began stoning the troops after their leaders made speeches, the spokesman said. "The troops replied by firing rubber bullets," the spokesman said. "Then army 'snatch' squads ran into the rioters and attempted to arrest persons. They were hit by stones and women attacked them." Air Pirates Will Stand Trial: Libya Hall said all but an estimated 700 prisoners had returned to their cells. The 700, who did not take part in the riot and feared vengeance at the hands of those who did, remained in the prison yard huddled around small fires. "It is possible we will find two more deaths—one man perhaps in the meat locker in the mess hall area and the other one in the chapel area," said Ed Hardy, the governors spokesman. One hundred highway patrolmen wearing blue helmets.and gas masks and carrying rifles and riot guns massed on the manicured lawns at the front entrance of the prison at 9 a.m. Sunday, reinforced by National Guard troops. At 9:40 a.m., howwtef, the inmates said they would surrender their positions in the cellbiocks, ending the rebellion that began 43 hours and lo minuses earlier when six prisoners attacked their guards during Friday's lunch hour and exhorted other inmates to "join us in a revolution in the name of Allah." After surrendering, the inmates quietly assembled in the prison yard, where they were searched. Patrolmen and National Guard ftmoops then combed the cellbiocks for weapons and found machetes, baseball bats, knives, "a barrel of pills" and a hand grenade boobytrap stretched across the entrance to a celt. No guns were found during the search. One inmate was fatally stabbed by another prisoner Friday and a second prisoner died when Ills' throat was slashed as a guard was escorting him back to his cell during a quiet period Saturday. The guard disarmed the assail' ant and arrested him. The inmates, who took 21 hostages, demanded a meeting with Hall to talk about prison reform when the insurrection began. Hall, however, refused to meet with them until they released their hostages, who included the deputy warden, 18 guards and two counselors oh the prison staff. The first group of hostages was released Saturday morning and the final 11 were surrendered at 12:35 p.m. Saturday. Hall immediately flew to the prison and met With a representative group of inmates. Following the meeting, he said: "I think what was important here is that we had an exchange. We're informed now what the consensus among the inmates is. These matters will have to be weighed and evaluated. There is no way I can tell you each of these issues involved is going to be reconciled to everybody's satis* faction." At that time it appeared the disturbance was over. But by dusk, small bands of prisoners had set four additional fires and at 11 p. m. Saturday night a prison guard, Charles Dob* bins, said the prisoners took over again. They roamed through the prison until Sunday morning, many of them drunk en home* made alcohol and high on pills stolen from the prison hospital. Sunday night, one of those who refused to go back in yelled, "we're never going back inside. We'd rather stand out here and be shot than go back in there and be killed." Warden Park Anderson, however, said that the inmates would have to return to their cells starting Monday. Day Camp Is Set Aug. 6*10 MONMOUTH — The second period of day camping is scheduled for Aug. 6-10, reports Curt Meschke, executive director of the Warren County YMCA. The camp period is from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The camp will be at Galesburg's Lake Storey.

Brood 342-6320 BEIRUT (UPI) - Libya denounced air hijacking as "despicable" Sunday and said four air pirates who blew up a Japanese jumbo jet would stand trial—the first time hijackers have faced public punishment in the Arab world. An announcement in Tripoli by Information Minister Abu Zeid Durdah said Libya would try the hijackers under Islamic law. That law calls for the amputation of the arms of thieves, among other things, and this, Arab political sources said, could be the fate of the hijackers if they are convicted of stealing the aircraft. None of the dozens of hijackers who have sought refuge in Arab contries has been tried or punished in public. In fact, most of them were publicly lauded as heroes of the Palestinian cause. The four men, three Arabs and a Japanese, hijacked the Japan Air Lines Boeing 747 over Amsterdam 10 days ago and finally blew it up on the runway of Benghazi airport in Libya after flying over much of the Middle East. One other hijacker was killed in a hand grenade blast, but 140 passengers and crew members escaped safely. "Some hijackers justify their crimes as a defense of a national cause," Durdah said. "But the Libyan government refuses to see the means of defending national causes going down to such a debased level. "The Libyan government believes that the means should be as honorable as its objective," he said. "Therefore, the hijacking of aircraft is a Marcos Appears Winner By VICENTE MALI WAN AG i Official results from MANILA (UPI) — President ropolitan Manila and despicable method that cannot Ferdinand E.

(UPI) - The manager of one of the country's biggest pornographic film laboratories was found shot to death Sunday in an alley near a Long Island shopping center, police said. Paul Rothenberg, 43, of Sands Point, N.Y., ran a lab in downtown Manhattan where $250,000 worth of pornographic films was confiscated by police several weeks ago. He was arrested and freed on $2,500 bail. Detectives said they were investigating reports that the slaying was related to a war among leading pornography dealers for control of the lucrative industry. Rothenberg had been shot "once or twice" in the back of the head with a small caliber weapon, according to Inspector Robert Edwards of the Nassau County Homicide Squad. Edwards said Rothenberg had left his house an hour earner to go to a diner "to get a cup of coffee." His car was found less than 50 feet from the body. Police said they did not know if Rothenberg owned an interest in the laboratory where he worked. Race No Reason To Refuse Blacks ALEXANDRIA, Va. (UPI) A federal judge has ruled that private schools cannot reject black pupils on account of their race. The landmark decision, based on an 1866 civil rights law, affects 395 schools in seven southern states. U.S. District Court Judge Albert V. Bryan Jr. said, in the weekend ruling, the law gives all persons equal rights in making and enforcing contracts. He also cited two recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings prohibiting racial discrimination in community swimming clubs. "The fact that the schools are open to every white child disposes of the argument that these. were truly private schools," Bryan said. The case was brought by two suburban Washington couples who said their children were denied admission to Bobbe's School, in Arlington, Va., and Fairfax Brewster School in Fairfax County, Va. The parents were awarded, a total of $7,500 in damages, but the decision also affects the 395 Southern private schools affiliated with the Southern Independent Schools Association (SISA), which joined the suit as a. defendant. Attorney Allison Brown, representing the parents, said Bryan's ruling was "a breakthrough for eliminating discrimination and some of the practices of these Southern white academies that flourish in the South." SISA lawyer George S. Leonard called it "the most important freedom decision ever made. It is so fundamental it affects the entire country. There is no longer a place of refuge for any group." Leonard said he would appeal.
