Vol. 31, No. 248 U.S. Naval Base, Guantanamo Bay, Cuba Wednesday, December 29, 1976 Tax cut is 'likely prospect' Carter concludes cabinet meetings today SAINT SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP)-Pres.-elect Jimmy Carter told his cabinet nominees yesterday they will have considerable freedom to run their departments under his system, and said members of his White House staff will work directly under Vice Pres.-elect Walter Mondale. Organization, policy and economic plans were discussed at a meeting of the incoming cabinet at Carter's retreat on Saint Simons Island off the Georgia coast. The meeting was unprecedented, the first of its kind with cabinet members before a President was sworn into office. Carter told reporters that a tax cut is, in his words, "a likely prospect" in the economic package he will make public at the end of next week. In a surprise announcement, the President-elect said Mondale will serve as his chief of staff. That, too, would be unprecedented, marking the closest relationship in history between a President and his vice president. Carter is scheduled to wind up the cabinet meetings today and return to his home in Plains. Aides say there is a possibility of a news conference tomorrow to announce sub-cabinet posts. The President-elect may also go to Washington Jan. 12 for military and foreign affairs briefings. Huber Matos Jr. shot in Costa Rica SAN JOSE, Costa Rica (UPI)--The son of Huber Matos, once one of Fidel Castro's top commanders who has been held a prisoner in Cuba for 17 years, was wounded by gunfire Monday night, narrowly escaping assassination, police said yesterday. Huber Matos Jr., 33, who has been leading a campaign for the release of his father from the Communist island, was hit by two bullets fired at him Monday night, police said. The younger Matos, owner of a local restaurant, was walking toward his car, stationed in a parking lot, when he was fired upon at about 11 p.m., after closing his establishment. One bullet hit him in back and another in the shoulder. Matos was rushed to the Catholic Clinic, where he was reported in fair condition. His father became a symbol of resistance to Castro's Communist takeover of Cuba after the revolutionary forces had toppled the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista. Castro arrested Matos as a "traitor" to the revolution and has held him prisoner since Oct. 21, 1959. s acting mayor powerful City Council Finance Committee where all the real city council work is done. Now that Bilandic is mayor, Wilson Frost will probably take over that position. Frost and Deputy Mayor Kenneth Sain have shared the mayoral duties since Daley died last week, and many of the city's black leaders wanted Frost to keep the job. But Frost himself seconded Bilandic's nomination and told his colleagues, "If there was a deal, and if there is a deal, I hope that the black people and the white people (of Chicago) will find that they are better served." WASHINGTON (UPI)--Two of Pres.elect Carter's cabinet nominees say there are indications that the President-elect's promises for quick reform and savings in the defense budget will be delayed. Carter says Bell treated unfairly SAINT SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP)-Jimmy Carter says Atty. Gen.-designate Griffin Bell "has not been treated fairly so far", and Carter believes the criticism comes primarily from people who had other candidates in mind for the job. Carter made the remarks in a broadcast interview taped for today's ABC-TV show "Good Morning America." Carter says the major criticism of Bell centers on the fact that he was a member of a private club. Carter describes the controversy as "transient in nature." Bell, apparently confident of Senate confirmation, says he will conduct interviews tomorrow and Friday for assistants to serve with him in the Justice Department. Bell also indicated to reporters yesterday that he may nominate a new director of the FBI instead of waiting for recommendations from a blue ribbon committee because the committee process might take too long. Harold Brown, selected as defense secretary, told reporters yesterday he does not see a reduction in military spending from present levels either in this year's or next year's federal budget. Brown, who was Air Force secretary during the Vietnam War and now is president of California Polytechnical Institute, hinted at a hard-line policy toward the Soviet Union. Joseph Califano, named to head the Health, Education and Welfare Dept., also said welfare reform may be slower in arriving than hoped for during Carter's campaign. Said the designated HEW chief, "We've got to have economic growth and get some more money coming into the federal government before new welfare programs can be offered." Bilandic sworn in as CHICAGO (AP)--All that remained were the formalities yesterday when Chicago's aldermen gathered in the city council chambers. They already knew who would succeed Richard Daley as mayor of the nation's second largest city. The nominating speeches were made. So were the seconding speeches. Then came the vote, 45 in favor, two against and one abstention. Michael Bilandic was sworn in as acting mayor. Bilandic was a close friend of Daley's. He was the alderman of Daley's home ward and chaired the TheUnited States of America Bitcntcnnial 1776-1976 NRDC asks to block shipment of uranium WASHINGTON (UPI)--The Natural Resources Defense Council asked the Nuclear Regulatory CommisEion Monday to block the proposed shipment of "bomb-grade" uranium to nuclear research and development facilities in West Germany. "U.S. exports are enabling Germany to commercialize reactor technologies that will destroy the small measure of protection against nuclear weapons proliferation provided by current international safeguards," said NRDC spokesman Thomas B. Stoel Jr. "If non-nuclear weapons countries can stockpile bomb-grade material to fuel breeder and high-temperature reactors, no safeguards system can provide sufficiently early warning that these countries are building nuclear explosives," Stoel said. The council said the United States has exported more than 30, 000 pounds of bomb-grade uranium to research programs abroad since lifting a ban of such exports in the early 1960s. Hart funeral held yesterday WASHINGTON (UPI)--It was a simple mass in a crowded cathedral in Washington yesterday as mourners paid tribute to Philip Hart, the veteran Democratic senator from Michigan who died Sunday after a long bout with cancer. Some of the mourners arrived at St. Mathews Cathedral in limousines, some in dungarees and ski parkas. Among the mourners were 23 senators and Atty. Gen. Edward Levi, who is charged with enforcing the civil rights and anti-trust laws which Hart championed during 18 years in the Senate. Janet Hart and her eight children followed the coffin as it was rolled out the church. Hart's remains are to be cremated and buried today at Mackinac Island, Mich. World News Digest WASHINGTON (UPI)--The Commerce Dept. says commercial fisherman this year made their biggest landings in 10 years, more than $1 billion in foodfish catches. The nation's fish catch was estimated at 5.2 billion pounds. HELSINKI, Finland (UPI)--A Boy Scout troop from Espoo County yesterday claimed a new record for helping people across the street by aiding1,467 Finns between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. The Finnish Scouts did their duty, assisting men and women, in the center of cold, snowy and slippery Helsinki. NEW YORK (AP)--Officials of the Protestant, Roman Catholic and Jewish religions have joined forces to denounce the Unification Church of the Reverend Sun Myung Moon. They say Moon's church fosters "bigotry against Christians and Jews." WASHINGTON (UPI)--The U.S. Customs Service reports its agency seized a record $631 million worth of drugs in 1976 and arrested nearly 21,000 persons on drug charges. WASHINGTON (UPI)--Twenty-nine persons protesting nuclear arms were arrested at an entrance to the Pentagon yesterday. About 50 persons were involved in the demonstration. Some threw a red liquid, which a spokesman described as blood, on the building. Others carried placards. Several demonstrators chained themselves to entrance doors. Police used bolt cutters to break the chains. YUCCA FLAT, Nev. (AP)--The U.S. yesterday set off its sixteenth announced nuclear test this year at the Nevada testing site, measuring between 20 and 150 kilotons. The U.S. has not detonated any nuclear tests more than 150 kilotons since March under the terms of a still-tobe-ratified treaty with the Soviet Union. WASHINGTON (AP)--The special council to Pres. Truman, Clark Clifford, says that in 1948 the State Dept. tried to scuttle Truman's backing for a state of Israel. Clifford told the American Jewish Historical Assn. yesterday in Washington that Truman was "angered' by the State Department's ettort. MOSCOW (UPI)--The Soviet Union yesterday launched the 886th satellite in its Cosmos series, according to the official news agency TASS. TASS said the satellite carried scientific equipment "for continuing the exploration of outer space." WASHINGTON (AP)--The United States suffered its worst monthly trade deficit in history in November. Imports exceeded exports by $905 million. MIAMI BEACH (AP)--A judge in Miami has ordered the Hotel Employes Union to remove pickets from in front of the Fontainbleau Hotel, and send the hotel's striking employes back to work. The order affects only the Fontainbleau. Employes of five other luxury hotels also are on strike in a wage and benefits dispute. WASHINGTON (UPI)--The Civil Aeronautics Board says Pres. Ford has blocked a major CAB proposal to provide airline passenger service from 12 U.S. cities to Europe. The plan would have given 11 of the 12 cities their first trans-Atlantic routes. Ford said not enough consideration had been given to economic matters or the wishes of foreign countries in proposing the new routes. Campaign promises may be delayed

itmo's pulse A A bi-weekly feature of the Gazette This week's question : What will your New Year's resolution be, and how long do you think you'll keep it? Arab forces enter Lebanon from Syrian border BEIRUT (UPI)--Fifteen hundred soliders from the United Arab Emirates yesterday entered Lebanon from Syria and began the long-waited move south to the biblical port of Tyre, only 18 miles north of Israel, sources close to the Arab peacekeeping force said. "The soldiers have been in Syria for three months and entered the n try at midday yesterday," one ree said. "They headed for Tyre, and from there they will spread out throughout the south." The troops reportedly came into Lebanon front the eastern border post of Masnaa. They had arrived in Syria beginning in October, but did not receive permission to enter Lebanon until diplomatic contacts between the United States, the Soviet Union, Israel and Syria succeeded in defusing the tense border situation in the south. Before yesterday's niove, the south of Lebanon was the only area of the country still unoccupied by troops of the 35,000-strong Syrian-dominated peacekeeping force. Israel has reinforced its forces on the northern border with Lebanon and warned it would not tolerate American tourists detained by Soviets PARIS (UPI)--Jacob Levitt of Wallingford, Pa., says he and four her American tourists were detainby Soviet authorities for 16 hours 4Wec. 20 at Moscow Airport, and then expelled from the Soviet Union. Levitt says he believes that the Soviets thought the five of them were going to take part in an outlawed symposium on Jewish culture that was scheduled to be held Dec. 21 to 23. Diplomatic sources said the Soviets were denying visas to many foreigners with Jewish-sounding names seeking to enter Russia during the period the conference was to be held. Levitt told reporters in Paris yesterday that the Soviets refused to give them food or water. They also reportedly refused to allow the Americans to sleep or contact the U.S. Embassy.

Donnenwirth, Chairwoman, Marine Fenceline Box Project, Protestant Women of the Chapel the movement of Syrian troops near its border nor the resumption of raids on northern Israeli settlements by Palestinian guerrillas. Since the peacekeeping force has not entered the areas near the Israeli border, joint PalestinianLebanese leftist forces have continued to spar with Israeli-supported Christian rightists in southern towns and villages. Sensitivity over a possible Israeli military reaction delayed the move and the United States and Soviet Union reportedly interceded with Damascus, Jerusalem and Beirut.

Carmack. Miss Herrin has been in Gitmo approximately one and a half years and is employed in the Navy Exchange accounting office. Carmack is attached to the Base Police.

Woman sleeps next to dead lover for a week SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (UPI)--A 60-year-old woman slept next to the body of her 65-year-old lover for about a week until neighbors noticed a suspicious smell coming out of the apartment and notified police. Police said the woman, who was identified as Esperanza Diaz, apparently did not realize that her mate, Nicomeles Lugo, had died. "I hope you give him good medicines and give him back to me just like I knew him last year," the woman told police when officers wearing masks against the stench removed the body on Monday. The man had been dead for at least six days. Lugo and Mrs. Diaz had known each other for about a year in a senior citizens housing development. After they appeared to fall in love, the authorities let them live together. MM2 Jon Bolland, Special Services: "I promised my grandmother that I would write everyone more often, and now that I'd put that promise in writing, she could hold it over my head when I don't write. I didn't tell her she had to find me to hold it over my head." Tweet Coleman, Psychologist: "My New Year's resolution is to meditate twice a day, at 6 p.m. and 4 p.m. instead of my usual once a day. I will keep my resolution until my logical mind decides differently." (Godspeed) Bob Herrin, PWD/Maintenance Control: "I will try to subdue my temper, especially on the Golf Course. I am also going to try and be a better man to all people." Hugh James, Supply/Internal Control: "My resolution is that for the coming year, we as people of God, will acknowledge our ways, think more of living a clean and sober life in the present world. For truly we are closer than we think to the end of time." June Brown, Navy Exchange/Accounting: "I have decided to enjoy life to the fullest. I plan to keep it forever." Lt. John Nellis, FTG/Operations: "I am not in the habit of making New Year's resolutions. When a weakness in my life become evident or I recognize an attitude or habit that needs changing, I try to take care of it right then. The motivating factor for changes in my life is my personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and when God points out to me something in my life, he doesn't want me to waste time taking care of it." C' PHILADELPHIA (UPI)--The Coast Guard said yesterday an oil spill from a Liberian-registered tanker had caused a 20-mile slick on the Delaware River that threatened the New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware shorelines. The Olympic Games, a 32,380-ton tanker, hit rocks on the bottom of the Delaware River Monday as it was making a final turn into a refinery dock owned by British Petroleum at Marcus Hook, Pa. The tanker ran aground. Capt. Kenneth C. Wiman, commanding officer of the Coast Guard unit in Gloucester, N.J., said about 133,500 gallons of oil spilled into the river near the Commodore Barry Bridge 15 miles south of Philadelphia. He said the tanker was carrying 17 million gallons of light Arabian crude oil. Wiman said oil had washed up on beaches at Paulsboro, N.J., and Claymont, Del. The cause of the grounding of another Liberian tanker that also spilled oil continued to be explored in a New York federal court yesterday. The captain of the Argo Merchant resumed his explanation of the equipment difficulties that led to the ship being almost 25 miles off course when it ran aground off Nantucket Island. The ship subsequently broke up and spilled more than 7 million gallons of oil into the ocean.
