Czechs hold American on espionage charges Associated Press WASHINGTON ~ Fred H. Eidlin, 27, of Rochester, N.Y., has been arrested in Prague on a charge of "suspicion of espionage," the United States has been informed by Czechoslovakia. Announcing this yesterday, a State Department spokesman said the U.S. Embassy in Prague has been unable to get access to Eidlin and declared, "we are concerned abov.t this continued failure of Czech authorities to grant prompt access." Press officer Robert J. McCloskey said Eidlin, is the son of Ephraim Eidlin of 3D Clintwood Drive, Rochester, N.Y., and that he had been employed from August 1968 to November 1969 by Radio Free Europe, which broadcasts in the languages of people who Jive in eastern Europe. Information on his arrest was provided to the U.S. Embassy by the Czech foreign ministry on Aug. 6. The ministry said he had been arrested Aug. 3. A special reason for the U.S. concern about access, McCloskey said, is that, after giving Aug. 3 as the date of arrest, the foreign ministry later indicated Eidlin "may have been in police custody for some time." Eidlin was graduated from Dartmouth College in 1964,.attended the Free University in Fred H. Eidlin Berlin in 1964-65, and the University of Indiana 1966-68. He received his master's degree at the University of Indiana earlier this year. McCloskey said Eidlin plans to work for a doctor's degree at the University of Toronto in the fall. Eidlin's father said he last heard from his son, a bachelor, on Aug. 2 when he received apostcard mailed from Czechoslovakia. The elder Eidlin said his son had been traveling in Europe since June and had planned to spend some time at a spa in Czechoslovakia. Jailed Uruguay leftists discuss victims' release Associated Press • MONTEVIDEO -Jailed ; guerrilla leaders, whose fol- i lowers kidnaped three for; eigners and killed one, were ; permitted to meet to discuss • the fate of the two remaining hostages, police said yester- i day. '• They declined to say if the ; jailhouse meeting had pro- j duced any hope that the ; Tupamaros guerrillas may i free a Brazilian diplomat and ; a U.S. agricultural specialist • being held in demand for the 1 freedom of 150 political pris- ; oners. ; The guerrillas killed a third • kidnap victim, police adviser ', Dan A. Mitrione of Richmond, • Ind. His body was found Mon; day. '. Police were asked if the im; prisoned guerrilla leaders have been able to continue dir e c t i n g their organization from their cells and officers replied, "Apparently they have." A Uruguayan radio station said, and police confirmed, that Raul Sendic, 44, a top Tupamarp, had met with other imprisoned guerrillas to discuss the fate of Brazilian Consul Aloysio Mares Dias Gomide and U.S. agricultural adviser Claude L. Fly, both held more than one week. Radio Carve said the meeting had taken place at Punta Carretas Prison on Montevideo's outskirts. It said Sendic had talked for an hour with Jorge Maneas Lluveras and Julio Manerales Saenz, who have been in prison for several months. Sendic was arrested at a suburban Montevideo apartment along with eight other suspected Tupamaros only a few hours after Fly, of Fort Collins, Colo., was kidnaped from a laboratory where he worked as an adviser to the Uruguayan Agricultural Ministry. Mitrione was slain by the Tupamaros after the Uruguayan government refused to meet a demand to release all political prisoners in exchange for the freedom of the kidnap victims. Earlier it had been reported that Sendic, sought by police for six years, had told police he considered himself a "prisoner of war" and refused to give any information other than his name. Radio Carve said neither police nor government officials had taken part in the prison meeting. Dominican festivity marks another term for Balaguer Associated Press SANTO DOMINGO - An average of three persons a day have been slain over the past three weeks in the Dominican Republic. But this Caribbean nation plunged into celebrations yesterday to be climaxed by the inauguration tomorrow of President Joaquin Balaguer. The more than 60 dead include persons linked with both leftist and rightist groups in this volatile country and some policemen. Some have been victims of stray bullets from the guns of jittery security agents. A 10-year-old girl was killed Thursday in the central part of the country by a military patrol which opened fire on the car she was riding in with her mother and sister. The mother and sister were wounded. The soldiers said the car refused to stop for a weapons check. Family sources said the troops made no attempt to stop the car before firing on it. A concert by the country's national symphony last night was to kick off a round of receptions and parties leading up to tomorrow's inauguration ceremony in the hall of congress. Balaguer, who embarks upon another four - year term, is a 64-year - old bachelor who lives with his mother and two maiden sisters in the heavily guarded presidential mansion.

Meloy Jr. and three aides. But enough diplomats and invited guests have already arrived to fill the 300-room Hotel Embajador, and plainclothes police were posted throughout the building to guard them. Some of the arrivals were taking no chances in a country where nearly everybody packs a pistol. One guest sauntered around the hotel armed with a nickel - plated six - shooter in a hand tooled leather holster slung around his hips. Other guests were more discreet, preferring snub - nosed revolvers or automatics worn in the waistband under a suitcoat. Sunny offers; free Decorator Service .. one room or all..
