Daily Nebraskan Thursday, April 9, 1987 By The Associated Press Tl Page 2 News Us. WASHINGTON A third Marine who worked as a security guard in Mos cow and Leningrad and in the U.S. Embassy in Rome has been arrested on suspicion of espionage. Sgt. John Joseph Weirick, 26, of Eureka, Calif., was arrested Tuesday night and held in the brig at Camp Pendleton, Calif., said Robert Sims, chief Defense Department spokesman. He is suspected of espionage while working as a security guard at the American consulate in Leningrad in 1981 and 1982, Sims said. Meantime, as American officials sought to measure the damage caused by the infiltration of American diplo matic missions by KGB agents and electronic eavesdropping devices, there were these developments: O FBI Director William Webster ac knowledged at a Senate hearing on his nomination to head the CIA that the Soviets use their new hilltop embassy complex in Washington to intercept U.S. telephone communications. But he said he was unable to say "how much damage they are doing." O Secretary of State George P. Shultz told reporters that Soviet eavesdropping at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow had cast "a heavy shadow" over the talks he will hold next week in the Soviet capital. He said he intended to tell the Soviets "that they can't expect to continue to create a hostile environment for our people overseas without cost to themselves." O Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister Vladimir F. Petrovsky said the U.S. charges that the KGB had bugged the new U.S. Embassy in Moscow are "dirty fabrications" intended to spoil Shultz's trip. He accused President Reagan of making "hostile remarks." O In Congress, bills were intro- t 1 .fi-i'-'V ' 1' i k 1 i I X- : - v cj V.-' tr- Jr..

Roth, R-Del., said he believed the new U.S. Embassy in Moscow would have to be torn down because it is so heavily bugged. Pentagon officials, speaking on con dition of anonymity, said military investigators now believe that Weirick "got some money from the Russians" and "may have allowed access to the consulate; more limited than Lonetree, but access." The arrest of Sgt. Clayton J. Lonetree in December triggered the current mil itary investigation, which has so far led to three other arrests. Lonetree and Cpl. Arnold Bracy, who worked together as Moscow embassy guards in 1985 and 1986, have been charged with espionage. Divers recover bodies from capsized ferry ZEEBRUGGE, Belgium Divers struggled through nightmarish mounds of mud and debris Wednesday to rec over 104 bodies from a British ferry that sank more than a month ago, officials said. "It is absolutely disastrous and horrific inside," said Commander Jack Birkett, who was directing the British Royal Navy divers.". . .it was far worse than I anticipated." About 30 more corpses were believed still inside the Herald of Free Enterprise, which capsized March 6 and was righted on Tuesday. Its keel was resting on the sandy bottom in 30 feet of water about 1,000 yards off the harbor entrance of this North Sea port. Sixty-one bodies were recovered in the days following the disaster, and the final death toll is expected to be about 195, making it one of Europe's worst peacetime maritime tragedies. The cause of the accident remains under investi gation by Belgian and British authorities. About 348 people survived. Officials said up to 20 bodies have been located on upper decks and were to be brought ashore Thursday. They doubted the others could be recovered from the submerged lower decks until after the vessel was refloated. The salvage company said that could take another two weeks. r- United Kingdom 1.

Television broadcasts showed a teddy bear lying among broken glass and black mud on a passenger deck where many of the victims had gathered as the ferry pulled out of Zeebrugge harbor 4 12 weeks ago. Witnesses said the vessel capsized in less than one minute.

Jack Kemp, R-N.Y., brought his conservative message of a strong defense and stable American economy to Omaha Tuesday, the second day of the beginning of his bid for the 1988 Republican presidential nomination. Kemp, 51, was accompanied by his wife, Joanne, and family as he spoke to about 100 supporters in a meeting room at Eppley Airport. The nine term congressional representative said he believes there are people in the United States who are willing to rally to support a candidate whose mes sage is "positve and progressive, yet conservative in value." Kemp told those gathered he intends to bring his campaign from the factory gates to the farm and from the farm to the busi nessman in his search for national support. "Unless American leads the world, the world will not have any leadership," Kemp said. Kemp said his campaign is centered in three areas: the economy and continued fiscal growth, a strong defense of the U.S. and the West ern allies and a policy that is pro-life and pro-human rights. Kemp said he supports the administration's Strategic De fense Initiative, or Star Wars, plan for a space-based defense system. "We need in this country a return to the basic values," Kemp said. "The right to life is an inal ienable right. Ladies and gen tlemen, I believe in a constitu tional amendment that defends the right to life in the United States. In Brief Jazz singer Maxine Sullivan dies at 75 NEW YORK Maxine Sullivan, the diminutive jazz singer who was about to celebrate the 50th anniversary of her first recording, died Tuesday after a brief illness, her daughter said. She was 75. Sullivan last performed about three weeks ago at the Westport Arts Center in Westport, Conn., said her daughter Paula Morris. Sullivan entered the Westchester Square Hospital in the Bronx last week after suffering a seizure and died there Tuesday afternoon, Morris said. Sullivan started early as a child in her native Homestead, Pa., and then became a worldwide star from 1936 to 1957. She emerged from a 10-year retirement in 1967. Her first recording, "Gone With the Wind" with Claude Thornhill s Orchestra was recorded on June 14, 1937. Her hit, "Loch Lomond," was recorded the following Aug. 6.

Delbate Ibegans' Lawmakers give first-round OK to Nebraska speed limit bill LINCOLN A measure that would m-hmm raise the speed limit to 65 mph on most of Nebraska's Interstate system cruised to first-round approval Wednesday in an accelerated trip through the Leg islature. Lawmakers voted 38-1 to send LB430 to the second stage of floor action. Speaker of the Leg islature Bill Barrett of Lexington pre dicted that the bill would be passed within 10 days. The bill carries an emergency clause, allowing it to become law almost Immed iately if signed by the governor. Gov. Kay Orr said she supported the bill as long as it repealed a section of the law that prevents the assessment of points against the driving 'I think it's been a long time coming.' Heftier peed! s ", ..ri;"r,3 SPEED LIMIT records of people exceeding the speed limit by less than 10 mph. The bill carries a section to repeal the 10 mph "grace period." "I think we are moving in a direc tion of being very, very honest," said Sen. Tim Hall of Omaha, a co-sponsor of the measure. "We know people do not drive 55 (mph) across this state." Sen. Elroy Hefner of Coleridge said, "I think it's been a long time coming." 'I think we are. . .being very, very honest. We know people do not drive 55 (mph) across this state.' Hall Joining Hall in co-sponsoring the bill are Sen. Ernest Chambers of Omaha, a longtime champion of the drive to raise the Interstate speed limit, and James Pappas of North Platte. Under LB430, the Interstate speed limit would stay at 55 mph for sections of the system that run through urban ized areas of 50,000 population ormore.
