He said no arrests were in sight in the latest series of bombings by .the Puerto Rican Armed Forces of Liberation (B'ALN) but, without elaboration, he claimed the department was "closer to a solu- on." In a post midnight telephone call to The Associated Press, the FALN took responsibility Tor the bombings, as they had for a scries last October, the December wounding of a policeman and the Fraunccs Tavern explosion in January which killed four persons and injured 55 others. In a note to The AP, which police confiscated, the FALN described its latest targets as corporations "at the heart of Yanki imperialism." Freedom for Puerto Rico was demanded, along with the release of five imprisoned revolutionary gunmen. "While the working class throughout the capitalist world suffers from recession and sinks deeper into poverty, the profits of these conglomerates continue to grow," the commu- nique said, in reference to the latest targets. The first bomb exploded just before midnight beside a pillar of the New York Life Insurance Co. Other blasts followed in succession at the executive offices of the Bankers Trust Co., Metropolitan Life Insurance Co. and near the American Bank and Trust Co. In each case, windows were .rnashed, masonry pockmarked and trash and shattered glass blown in all directions. Authorities said the device intended for the American Bank and Trust apparently was discarded short of the target after it threatened to explode prematurely. It blew up outside a Japanese restaurant. The bombs were fueled with a high-powered explosive, reportedly set off by a wristwatch timing device. Two men in their 20s, one ;)lack and the other Puerto Rican, were reportedly seen fleeing from the Bankers Trust blast. Edward Robinson, 58, of Jamaica, Queens, was cut on the lead while walking near the •\mcrican Bank and Trust. He was treated at a hospital and released.

Lost By Fischer AMSTERDAM, The Netlier- ands (AP) — Without even moving a pawn, Bobby Fischer ost his world chess championship Thursday. The International Chess Federation, FIDE, took the crown away from 'him and gave it to Soviet Grandmaster Anatoly Karpov. It ruled the Californian iad forfeited 'the right to the championship because he refused, to meet Karpov in a showdown match in Manila under a'rulc to which he objects. "I am very happy that, the crown has returned to the Soviet Union," the 23-^ ear-old Kar- DOV said in Moscow. He added, nowever, he was still "ready to meet" Fischer over the chessboard to decide who ically was the beter man. In announcing its decision, FIDE said Fischer had failed to meet the deadline for agreeing to meet Karpov. Fischer, 32, who has shunned newsmen and lived a secluded life since winning the title in September 1972, had no immediate public comment. • Karpov referred in an interview to Fischer's having played no public matches in the past three years and said he did not think Fischer "was ready to defend the title." "It's been three years since the championship match and three years is a long time in chess,'' the new champion said "A lot can happen in chess. Chess changes. Chess goes for ward." FIDE President Max EUWCJ extended by 24 hours the dead- ine for receipt of word from Pischer that he would, play Carpov at Manila in June or Dctober. The acceptance had seen due by midnight Tuesday and the title was declared de- aultcd when the extended deadline still brought no word rom Fischer'. Fischer had earlier declared 10 would not play unless FIDE made two rule changes. First, IB wanted the ,36-gamc limit for he championship changed to an unlimited number of games until one player wins 10 games, vith draws not counting. The second demand was that case a 9-9 tie is reached, the champion retains the title. In a special congress two weeks ago FIDE agreed to drop its limit on the games, but refused to approve the 9-9 tie i-ule. Fischer won the title from Boris Spassky of the Soviet IJn- :on in a match at Reykjavik, Iceland, marked by disputes over such matters as the size of the purse, lighting, cameras Spring, Summer Garden Plots Set For Planting VALUE TODAY FOLDS LONDON (UPI) — Value Today, a magazine designed to help people beat inflation, is folding after only six issues, a spokesman said today. "Costs have gone up so much we were losing on every issue," said executive editor David Miller. The West Texas Community Development Corp. announced Thursday 150 plots are available for a spring- summer garden project here. The corporation is a nonprofit organization sponsored by the Lubbock Community Action Board. Location of the community-type garden project is an interior triangle at the intersection of Clovis Road, Quaker Avenue and Ursuline Avenue dii northwest Lubbock near the city limits. Registration will be at the corner of Ursuline Street and Quaker Avenue from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and April 12 and 13 at the same hours.

In his three years as champion Fischer has been a recluse 'rom chess, never entering a tournament or playing any^ offi- eially sanctioned match. In.'suggesting that Fischer was., not ready for a title match, Karpov did not go so far as to say."he thought Fischer was afraid to play him. "Of course Fischer lias tremendous, talent and chess form," he stated.
