Philippine Catholic Church Aids Martial Law Victims Says "Fully Supports" Arms Agreement WASHINGTON (AP) President Ford's nuclear arms agreement with Soviet leaders has the full support of top Pentagon leaders, says a senior defense official. Secretary of Defense James Schlcsinger "believes that, in the broadest sense, the Vla- divostok agreement provides a useful and commendable step Assistant Secretary of Defense William Beecher said Wednesday. "He thoroughly supports the said Beecher. Schlesinger is known to have- differed in the past with Sec- retary of Stale Kissinger over negotiating tactics and numbers of multiple warhead missiles to be allowed. Beecher said Sclilesinger and General George Brown, chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, agreed with other senior U. S. officials on Ihe over-all objectives developed (luring discussions before the Vla- divostok meeting of Ford and Leonid Brezhnev. Schlesinger believes those objectives were "essentially Beecher said. He would not elaborate. Based on what has emerged so far, it would appear that the agreement falls short of Schlesingcr's original position in a significant way. There is no indication it limits thrnw-'veicht or lifting power of missiles, which Schlesinger has urged in the past. Last April he told congress the U.S. should "concentrate in the long run on the throw-weight issue rather than Ihe number issue" although he said it was im- portant In curb numbers as well. Ity Fernando Del Mundo MANILA (UPI) Pacifico Ortiz, a silver-haired priest, picked up a telegram from his desk, lore the plastic envelope and said, "Here's another one." A Filipino on the remote island of Bohol who had been detained by soldiers as a sus- pected subversive was asking for help. Since the proclamation of martial law in the fall of 1972, Ortiz said he had received a number of telegrams asking for church help in correcting injustices inflicted on political prisoners, now estimated to number about 500. About 3S million of the Philippines' 40 million popula- tion are Roman Catholic. Many look to church leaders for moral if not material support in times of stress. Cases Vary The cases reaching Ortiz, a 61-year-old Jesuit priest and former university rector, vary. One man complained about soldiers breaking up a party on grounds of illegal assembly. The wife of Nilo Tayag, the jailed youthful leader of the outlawed leftist Kabataang Makabayan (patriotic youth) organization, asked help to get her visiting rights back. The Philippines is the only Christian country in Asia and since the word of the church carries considerable weight. President Ferdinand Marcos a year ago formed a church- military liaison committee to deal with church requests. The committee of 12 military officers and superiors of religious organizations, including Ortiz, meets regularly in the army and navy club, military camps or mis- sion houses. ,No Publicity Under its ground rules, no publicity can be given to the proceedings but minutes can be disseminated to church members. The committee was first proposed to bail out priests and nuns who got into trouble with authorities. Immediately after the mar- Brazilian Metropolis Battles 30 Million Rats SAO PAULO, Brazil (UPI) There are approximately four rats for each one of Sao Paulo's 8 million citizens, the city's public health department said. The department, which has begun a massive project to ex- terminate Sao Paulo's es- timated 30 million rats, said they eat at least 20 percent of all the food either produced or stored in the city. LAFF A DAY lial law proclamation, two American Franciscan mis- sionaries, Bruno Kicks, 43, and John Peterson, 35, were arrested for preaching rebellion. They were later allowed to leave the country voluntarily. Raids on convents and other church institutions for sus- pected subversives followed. Church sources said 46 priests and nuns, including 13 foreigners, have since been held, most of them tem- porarily. Limit on Raids Among those released into the custody of their religious superiors was Edward Gerlock, 38, of Binghamlon, N. Y., who is still fighting a deportation order based on subversion charges. Military officers have as- sured the church liaison com- mittee that no more raids will be made on church institutions without the presence of their superiors and that any clergy held will be released to their leaders. The committee has also gone to bat for union activities, "Speak up, Frybush, and stop all that coughing. Is the air quality acceptable today, or isn't SATISFACTION ALWAYS Limialc Plaza EVENING NOW THRU CHRISTMAS FOR YOUR SHOPPING CONVENIENCE press freedom and jailed laymen. Ortiz said the commltlce, which has opened branches in 13 rural areas, gels things done despite its limited objectives. "Christian Left" "I have not confined my in- tervention for the benefit of priests and nuns but for other people whether Catholic or Protestant who needed help and representation before the said Ortiz, who usually wears a short-sleeved Filipino barong shirt instead of a cassock. The Catholic church in the Philippines runs 212 colleges, 977 high schools, 456 secondary schools and 314 kindergartens. There are priests and religious brothers and nuns, many of them involved in social action among the poor in a nation where per capita an- nual income is only Before martial law, youth activists called the church a "clerico-fascist" institution. Today, church members cri- tical of martial law are called the "Christian left" and some activists have come to them for assistance. Sugar Nations Form 'Union MEXICO CITY (AP) Twenty Latin American and Caribbean nations that produce and export sugar have created a union to protect world sugar prices. Francisco Cano Escalante, president of the Mexican na- tional sugar commission, said the organization's ultimate goal will be to coordinate the region's future sugar produc- tion and let each producer, in- stead of buying countries, set its own price. The union will be called the Group of Sugar Exporting Countries of Latin America and MARMADUKE the Caribbean. It was formed during a meeting in Cozumel, Mexico. Cano Escalante said its first formal policy session will be next April in the Dominican Republic. He said the union includes Mexico, Argentina, Barbados, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Guyana, Hon- duras, Jamaica, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela. They annually produce 12 million tons of sugar, or 60 percent of global production.
