Libyan activity unproven Greece declines sanctions ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Greece once again has stepped out of line with its Western allies, refusing to impose 'diplomatic sanctions against .Libya for sponsoring terrorism on grounds that no proof exists. • Premier Andreas Papandreou claims that reprisals against terrorism such as the U.S. air strike on Libya could escalate into warfare. "We've entered a new and highly dangerous phase where 'terrorism is being transformed into a weapon of conflict between states," the 67-year-old premier told Parliament last •week. " He said Greece could not apply '.sanctions against Libyan diplomats because "not one shred of proof of the guilt of specific countries in terrorist activities" has been given to the 12 Common Market members. Papandreou's remarks are reminiscent of the anti-Western outbursts that marked his first three years in office beginning in 1981, and gave Greece a reputation as NATO's odd-man-out. Opposition Conservative Party politicians charge that Papan- dreou's refusal to condemn Libya is tainted by his personal friendship with Libyan leader Col. Moammar Khadafy. But following Libya's missile attack against a U.S. Coast Guard installation on the small Italian island of Lampedusa, there were fears Khadafy could next target the Greek island of Crete, 120 miles from Libya. Greece has moved F-4 air force jetfighters to Crete, ringed a Greek airfield on the island's southern coast with tanks and sent three destroyers to patrol offshore. A U.S. AWr Force surveillance, station and a U.S. 6th Fleet anchorage and supply facility are located on Crete. The current U.S.-Greek defense agreement stipulates that military bases in Greece cannot be used to launch an attack against countries friendly with Greece, a clear reference to Libya. Meanwhile, Papandreou has improved relations with the United States during the last 10 months as Greece's economic problems mounted. He no longer threatens to close American military bases or remove U.S. nuclear weapons stockpiled in Greece. But Greece and the United States still don't see eye-to-eye on terrorism. U.S. Ambassador Robert V. Keeley told a group of Greek businessmen recently: "While we're progressing in the area of anti-terrorism cooperation, there remains a serious gap in our respective views of how to address clear acts of state-directed terrorism." Trail drive ends successfully : MOUNTAIN HOME (AP) — The llth annual .Y.O. Ranch Longhorn Trail Drive attracted •a wide assortment of cowboys •and 'cowgirls, including a U.S. marshal! from Dodge City, Kan., and a bride From New Braunfels, Texas. ; "The trail drive is something J've always done," said Helen .Burnett, who got married at the ranch pavilion on the eve of the drive, which ended Sunday. "1 love what this has done for the heritage it preserves," she ^said Saturday, standing next to her new husband Sam Burnett, 'an insurance executive from San Antonio. The Burnetts were among 150 •cowpokes who saddled up Satur- Two arrested in bomb plot " ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — -Two Libyans arrested for "allegedly attempting to bomb a .U.S. officers' club plotted the at'.tack with the help of Libyan embassy personnel, the prosecutor ;said Monday. •• State security court Pro- "secutor Ulku Coskun told The Associated Press that the hand grenades that were to be used in the attack had been brought into iTurkey in diplomatic baggage. : Two Libyans, identified as AM HEcefli) Ramadan and Recep Muhtar Rohoma Tarhuni, both 30, .were captured April 18 near thi. U.S. officers' club in the residential district of .Gaziosmanpasa. The two were 'carrying'a bag that contained ;six hand grenades, Coskun said. ; The two Libyans were formal- -lyl arrested on Sunday, but the charges were not announced. Coskun said two Libyan embassy employees delivered the ;hand grenades to the suspects. :He identified .them as Saban ^Muhammed Hasan, the em- 'bassy'? .administrative attache, •and'Abdulhafit El Hadi Sadun, a security guard. day and headed down the dusty trail. The group herded about 35 head of longhorns through the rugged, rocky 55,000-acre ranch on a two-day trek. "Whoo, cattle," cooed U.S. Marshall Kenny House from Dodge City as he coaxed the longhorns through the trees. House said he helped Y.O. Ranch owner Charles Schreiner III run the first trail drive to Lubbock in 1976. "Some of my closest and best friends are here," he said, adding that he participates in the trail ride because he wants "to help out — help Charley." Schreiner, whose grandfather Capt. Charles Schreiner founded the ranch 100 years ago, said he conducts the trail drive for fun and to keep history alive. "We like to keep out here as much of the Old West as we can under the circumstances," he said. "You got to remember your Crime stoppers roots — where we all came from," he said, a pinched, dirty cowboy hat in his lap. So Schreiner invited his friends for a pre-1900s costume party Friday night, a trail drive and night of festivities around the campfire Saturday. The drive concluded Sunday after a cowboy prayer meeting on horseback and the last few miles of the journey. The only ones who weren't having a good time were the longhorns. "These steers are not real wild about participating in this thing," said C.D. "Fibber" McGehee, wildlife biologist for the ranch. "They can be ornery as all git out." Except for the pickup trucks and four-wheel drives, the trail drive looked much like those that have been depicted on television and in western art. Cowboys and cowgirls were dressed in jeans, chaps, bandanas, spurs, cowboy hals and boots.
