USeaMan condemns detention
Superpower relations could be jeopardized
DENVER President Reagan Mon
day said there would be no trade for the
freedom of American journalist Nicho
las Daniloff and warned Soviet authori
ties that Daniloffs continued deten
tion could become a "major obstacle"
to improve superpower relations.
"I called upon the Soviet authorities
to act responsibly and quickly," Rea
gan said in a campaign speech.
He called the detention of Daniloff
on espionage charges "an outrage,"
and said if he was not freed soon, there
was "no way to prevent this incident
from becoming a major obstacle."
Daniloff, 51, the Moscow mi-respondent
for I'.S. News & World Report, was
arrested Aug. 30 after he was handed a
backage of documents by a Soviet
acquaintance. He has been jailed in
Moscow on espionage charges.
Reagan said there would be no trade
for Daniloff, ruling out a swap for Soviet
physicist Gennadiy Zakharov, who was
arrested in New York on charges of
The president's remarks came as
administration sources disclosed that
Reagan is being urged by hard line
conservatives to begin expelling Soviets,
one by one, from Moscow's U.N. mission
until Daniloff is released.
The president's list of options also
was said to include a general reduction

in the size of the Soviet embassy staff
in the United States and cancellation
of a scheduled summit-planning ses
sion later this month between Secre
tary of State George P. Shultz and
Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard A. She
vardnadze. One step described by an official
who asked not to be identified would
include periodic, perhaps daily, expul
sion of Soviet officials attached to the
U.N. headquarters in New York. The
U.S. arrest of one such official on
espionage charges preceeded the
Soviets' arrest of Daniloff.
The explusions could continue for

weeks or months if the journalist were
not released, the source said. He empha
sized it is only one of several recom
mendations being put before the pres
ident. White House Spokesman Larry Speak
es on Sunday refused to specify what
steps the United States might take to
put pressure on Moscow for Daniloffs
release. However, he said planning
meetings for a U.S.-Soviet summit will
go on as scheduled.
Despite repeated U.S. calls for Dani
loffs release, the Soviets on Sunday
filed spy charges against him. The
charges could carry the death penalty.

It was the first reported attempt on
Pinochet's life since he took power in a
military coup 13 years ago Thursday.
Soldiers with blackened faces and
several tanks surrounded La Victoria
and Davila slums before dawn and
security police began house-to-house
searches, witnesses said. Both shanty

Air Force nuy or goes on trial
OMAHA Air Force Maj. Ted Parsons stood for 10 minutes over Jill
Garlock to be sure she was asleep in her bed before he fired a single bullet
into her head, a prosecutor said Monday.
"He specifically wanted her to be asleep because he did not want her to
experience any pain," Deputy Douglas County Attorney Mark Ashford
Parsons is on trial for killing Garlock last April. In an opening state
ment, Ashford said Parsons shot the high school teacher once in the
temple on April 10, then drove to Bellevue and threw the .357 Magnum
pistol he used into the Missouri River.
Parsons, 43, and Garlock, 36, had been friends for about seven years.
Friends have said Garlock wanted to end the relationship.
J. William Gallup, who is representing Parsons, said Parsons doesn't
deny killing Garlock.
Gallup said testimony would show Parsons shot Garlock "as a result of
emotions he could not control." Gallup said mental health professionals
would testify that Parsons experienced "an irresistible impulse" to kill
Parsons, dressed in his Air Force uniform, sat expressionless Monday.
He's charged with first-degree murder and using a weapon to commit a
felony. . ; . "
Parsons was stationed at Offutt Air Force Base in Bellevue for several
years. He was transferred last year to Scott Air Force Base near Belleville,

Pan Am crew escape:
Bravery or cowardice?
LONDON The escape of Pan Am's
cockpit crew at the start of the 17-hour
hijacking in Pakistan has stirred debate
over whether the ancient rule that a
cap.in never abandons ship should
apply to jetliner hijackings.
An informal Associated Press survey
Monday found disagreement on the
issue among pilots, airline officials and
the hyack victims themselves. Opin
ions ranged from one survivor who
called the cockpit crew's action "abso
lutely superb" to a spokesman for a
competing airline who said it was
By escaping through a hatch in the
roof of the Boeing 747 soon after terror
ists boarded the plane Friday, the
three-man flight crew effectively ground
ed the jetliner at Karachi Airport.
But it left the nearly 400 passengers
and remaining crew without an author
ity figure and confronting four terror
ists, who in the end blasted them with
grenades and machine-gun fire, killing
"If one refers to the maritime world,
where the tradition would have the
captain of a sinking ship be the last to
leave the deck, one could find quite
cowardly the conduct of this crew," Le
Figaro, a leading French daily, editor
Terry Middleton, executive admini
strator of the London-based Interna
tional Federation of Air Line Pilots
Associations, which represents 60,000
pilots in 66 nations, said the advantage
of keeping a commandeered airliner
grounded could outweigh all other
"It's not a question of bravery or
cowardice," he said In an interview. "It
is a question of doing the most sensible
thing to get the hijacking over with as
quickly and safely as possible."
A British Airways pilot, Chris Orlebar,
said he had no doubt what he would do
in the same circumstances. "I would
stay on board and somehow disable the
aircraft," he told London's Daily Mail
At a news conference in New York on
Friday, Martin R. Shugrue, vice chair
man and chief operating officer for Pan
American World Airways, said the
cockpit followed "long-established Pan
Am and Industry procedures under cir
cumstances of the nature."
Ken Lauterstein, the Federal Avia
tion Administration's representative at
the U.S. Embassy in London, said the
FAA had no standing policy on what
action the captain and crew should
But he told the AP that the agency
recommends they do whatever is nec
essary to keep the plane on the ground
because of the risk of an aircraft being
airborne with hijackers who could be
armed with explosives.
Klaus Busch, a spokesman for the
West German airline Lufthansa, said
the airline would never allow the cap
tain and crew to flee a hijacked plane.
