Hooks, a member of the Federal Communications Commission, was elected Satur- day to succeed Roy Wilkins as executive director of the Na- tional Association for the Ad- vancement of Colored People. The unanimous vote by the NAACP national board marks an end to the long and some- times uncomfortable search to- find a successor to the 75-year- old Wilkins, who plans to retire next July 31. "The NAACP has been a part of my life for as long as I can Hooks, 51, said after learning of his election. "This is one of the most impor- tant jobs in the country the very top in terms of the black community." Hooks, of Memphis, Tenn., said he had "no great novel changes" to propose for the civil rights or- ganization. "I just want to see it bigger and he said. The first black appointed to the FCC, Hooks is an attorney and former Baptist minister who served congregations in Memphis and Detroit. He said he will have to resign his FCC post to take up the NAACP job which is his as of Jan. 1, 1977. He planned to meet with NAACP officials in Washington to discuss the transition. Wilkins had wielded power in the NAACP without challenge for decades. He was a hero of the civil rights movement and his name was virtually sy- nonmous with the organization. But the NAACP had fallen on lean times in recent years and experienced financial diffi- culties. There was increasing pressure ,to ease Wilkins out of the post and put someone younger in. Finally, at its 67th annual convention last July, the organ- ization acted to take away his real but unofficial power and place it in the hands of the 64- member board of directors. He forced the issue himself by asking to be allowed to stay oh past his planned retirement next January until after 68th annual cbnvention. The direc- tors later- acceded to his wish but only after removing all his resppnsibilites for internal op- erations. Last February, the board of directors had enlisted more than 200 prominent blacks to aid in a campaign to double the membership during this year. The move was seen by some as a departure from the long-time policy of keeping planning with- in the national board. More than 50 of the blacks enlisted in the drive, and they were also asked to advise the organization on modernizing its fiscal, administrative and pub- lic relations systems. The move seemed to repre- sent the thinking of theso-called "Young Turks faction on the national board, led by its chairwoman Margaret Bush Wilson. COLUMBUS; Ohio (AP) Ohio's lame duck legislature meets Tuesday to act on a bingo bill and county officials' pay raises left pending when lawmakers adjourned regular sessions Sept. 18. Majority Democrats, who will be veto proof against GOP Gov. James A. Rhodes in the next legislature, will caucus Tuesday morning to elect leaders for the two-year session starting Jan. 3. House Speaker. Vernal G. Riffe Jr., D-89 New Boston, and Senate Majority Leader Oliver Ocasek, D-27 Akron, are ex- Prisoner Exchange Approved WASHINGTON (AP) Hun- dreds of Americans who say they are trapped in rat-infested Mexican cells, subjected to tor- ture and forced to sign con- fessions, may be returned to the United States to complete their sentences as a result of a new treaty. And more than Mexi- cans in U.S. federal prisons would have the option of trans- ferring to Mexican cells under a prisoner-swap treaty an- nounced by the State Depart- mejit. Americans who return from Mexican prisons may apply for parole and those who could prove they had been abused in Mexican prisons probably would have better chances of being freed by U.S. authorities. That is the view of U.S. legal experts who worked out the tentative treaty with Mexico. The treaty provides for a gen- eral exchange of some 600 American and Mexican federal prisoners. All will have the right to re- quest transfer to prisons in their home country. But the two governments must approve each transfer, and the treaty depends on ratification by the U.S. and Mexican senates. Some legal experts say some prisoners, once returned to the United States, may try to seek freedom by suing to revoke the treaty. One U.S. legal expert says they may argue that they cannot be kept in an American jail because they were not con- victed under U.S. laws. The treaty grew out of com- plaints by Americans and their relatives who said they were beaten in Mexican "jails and that they were denied access to lawyers and U.S. consular offi- cials. Most Americans in Mexi- can prisons are serving sen- tences arising from drug of- fenses. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger took up the problem on a visit to Mexico City last June. After a series of meet- ings, U.S. and Mexican negotia- tors completed a general agree- ment. -Mexicans convicted in Cali- fornia and other states, most of them on charges of illegal entry into the United States, would be eligible for transfer to Mexican prisons if the states agree. The few Americans in Mexican state prisons, as opposed to federal prisons, would be covered under a Mexican constitutional amendment. Mexican President Luis Ech- everria proposed the amend- ment to his eountry's con- stitution, along with separate reform legislation that would allow prisoners held on drug-re- lated charges to become eli- gible for parole, a right taken away several years ago. pected to be re-elected. Both have held their leadership posts since January 1975. Scheduled the same day is a Senate Republican caucus for the election of a minority lead- er in that chamber. Sen. Mi- chael J. Maloney, R-7 Cincin- nati, apparently will retain the post. House Republican Leader Charles F. Kurfess, R-83 Bowl- ing Green, is favored to keep his job at a House GOP caucus also set for Tuesday. The bingo bill got sidetracked in mid-September when it failed by seven votes to receive 66 needed in the House for an emergency clause giving it im- mediate effect. It received a 59- 13 tally. However, the vote came at a.m., ending a marathon session at which only 72 of 99 House members were present. House Judiciary Chairman Har- ry J. Lehman, D-16 Shaker Heights, said he expects "no problem" picking up the addi- tional votes on a motion he will make to have the earlier vote reconsidered. The bill, which further imple- ments a constitutional amend- ment that legalized bingo in Ohio for charitable purposes, spells out regulations and con- trols designed to wipe out illicit gamblers running big stakes games under the guise of chari- ty. With the attorney general overseeing bingo operations, the legislation expands an ear- lier 1976 law to include veterans and senior citizens among groups which may be licensed to run bingo and similar types of games, including "zingo." Actually, what the House will be voting on is a conference committee's version of the measure which the Senate ap- proved 27-1 before the lawmak- ers adjourned for their cam- paigns. Also pending is the report of another Senate-House confer- ence committee on a bill giving officials in Ohio's 88 counties their first pay raise in eight years. Some of the increases are as high as 30 per cent, but are justified to make up for in- flation since the last raise, soonsors say. Rep. Frederick H. Deering, D-84 Monroeville, chief sponsor and conference committee chairman, said the panel will meet Monday afternoon, in ad- vance of Tuesday's floor ses- sions, to try to resolve differ- ences over whether to include future annual increases pegged to cost of living hikes. The House put the automatic trig- gers in its version of the bill but the took them out. The county officials won't be eligible for another pay boost for four years under a law ban- ning increases during their terms. Deering's bill needs an emergency clause to qualify sheriffs, commissioners, and others elected Nov. 2 to terms commencing in January. Regu- lar bills do not become effective until 90 days after signing by the governor. Riffe said there is a possi- bility that the House will try to override some recent vetoes by Rhodes, but didn't single out any particular bill. An aide mentioned some rejected provi- sions in a recent welfare appro- priation bill. The speaker and other Demo- crats were incensed over the governor's veto of language es- tablishing new accountability procedures in the massive and embattled welfare department. Rhodes indicated he felt the re- quirement violated executive department prerogatives. If all 59 Democrats are present Tuesday, they still would need one Republican vote to muster the three-fifths majority required to override. This is a prospect not seen as likely among GOP lawmakers still stunned over last Tues- day's election results. Democrats will have a 62-37 edge in the new House and re- tain their present 21-12 advan- tage in the upper chamber. Otherwise, the Senate may act this week on the con- firmation of Welfare Director Kwegyir Aggrey and Natural Resources Director Robert W. Teater, two Rhodes appointees who have had run ins with the Democratic majority over the past several months and whose jobs could be in jeopardy. Democrats were expected to discuss the directors' fate at their party caucus. GM Next In Line For UA W Strike DETROIT (AP) The United Auto Workers will set a strike deadline at General Mo- tors Corp. this week after reaching a last-minute ten- tative agreement for hourly employes at Chrysler. UAW and Chrysler negotia- tors met Saturday to discuss a separate pact covering sa- laried workers. The deadline for that contract has been ex- tended indefinitely. The tentative agreement for the No. 3 Auto Maker's U. S. and Canadian hourly employes was an- nounced just before the deadline Friday. The UAW struck the Ford Motor Co. for nearly a month earlier this fall before reaching an industry-pattern settlement. In negotiations with industry giant GM, the union will be try- ing to win a similar pact for workers. UAW Presi- dent Leonard Woodcock said of- ficials would set the strike deadline early in the week. The UAW negotiating com- mittee scheduled a meeting of the union's Chrysler Council on Wednesday to discuss and vote on the tentative agreement. If the pact is approved by the council, it would then go to local units around the country for a vote. Three plants reported wildcat walkouts Saturday over local issues, but two returned to normal. Company officials said only the Etobicoke, Ont., cast- ing plant near Toronto re- mained closed with pickets keeping the 356 workers off the job. Other brief wildcat strikes over local issues were also re- ported at the Trenton, Mich., engine plant and at the Twin- sburg, Ohio, stamping plant. But both plants had returned to normal by midday. Seven Detroit-area Chrysler plants were shut down Friday and workers sent home as thousands of UAW members jumped the gun by staging ear- ly walkouts. Nine persons were arrested during picketing Fri- day night outside a warehouse in Brownstown township near Detroit. They were released pending hearings on mis- demeanor charges. UAW Vice President Douglas Fraser said Friday he was con- fident the Chrysler agreement would be approved by the rank and file. The deadlines at local units with still-unsettled pacts have been extended in- definitely. Officials said 26 of 69 Chrysler production facilities had settled locally by mid-Sat- urday. Mock POW Role Ends In Death LINDENHURST, N.Y. (AP) A college junior pledged to an ROTC-connected military fraternity was stabbed to death with a bayonet, police said, during hazing in which he played the role of a prisoner of war under interrogation. Suffolk County police said Thomas Fitzgerald, 19, was stabbed in the chest by a mem- ber of the fraternity, the Per- shing Rifles. The member, who was acting the part of a Soviet inquisitor, was arrested on a murder charge. The slaying took place late Friday on Indian Island, off the south shore Long Island near here, while 12 to 14 fraternity pledges were taking part in what police called a "training and hazing program." Fitzgerald, the youngest of 10 children in his family, had joined the ROTC unit at St. John's University in Queens only last summer in the hope that he might get an Army scholarship for law school, his sister said. The ROTC unit at St. John's serves schools in the area which do no have units of their own. Charged with second degree murder in the death was James Savino, 21, of Bayside, Queens, who was a cadet first lieutenant in the ROTC unit. He is a senior at the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, N.J. According to his sister, No- reen Reiser, Fitzgerald was a junior at Queens College, part of the City University of New York. He worked at the school library to help pay for his edu- cation. "He wanted to go to law school and my widowed mother did not have the money to send she said. "He joined the ROTC because he thought that under the Army program he could get some sort of scholar- ship. He was very, very smart." A spokesman for St. John's University had no immediate statement on the death but said he was trying to reach the colo- nel in charge of the ROTC unit for comment. He described the Pershing Rifles as a military professional fraternity. AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands (AP) President Zulfikar All Bhutto of Pakistan says his country will revoke its military alliance with the United States if Washington blocks the purchase by Pakistan of nuclear equipment from France, a Dutch newspaper reported Saturday.

(AP) Special government Prosecutor Kevin 0''MalIey" sa'i'd the federal court trial of reputed Maiia figure Feter Licavoli Sr., tentatively set for Monday, has been postponed indefinitely. Shelves 'Press Muzzle' NAIROBI, Kenya1 (AP) A U.N. commission Saturday voted overwhelmingly to shelve a Soviet-sponsored declaration that the United States contended would muzzle press freedom in the world. A key commission at the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization UNESCO conference voted 78-15, with six abstentions, iftfavor of referring the proposal to a special negotiating committee a move expected to defuse the issue for two more years. Only Solution DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania (AP) Five black African leaders meeting here Saturday ignored the Geneva talks on Rhodesia's political future and said the only way for blacks to gain power there is through armed struggle. They charged that diplomatic moves for a peaceful transition to black majority rule in Rho- desia, including the Geneva ne- gotiations, only offer time "to consolidate the white racist re- gimes" in Rhodesia and South Africa. "Zimbabwe (Rhodesia) will be liberated in the same way as Angola and Tanzanian President Julius Nyerere told reporters, refer- ring to warfare in those two countries after they gained in- dependence from Portugal. The five nations have been' supporting black nationalists who are fighting Rhodesia's white minority regime. Sonar Pinpoints 'Fuzzy' Monster ifm _. BOSTON (AP) Scientists report that a sonar search for he legendary Loch Ness mon- ster has turned up a fuzzy out- ine of an object on the bottom, of the deep Scottish lake which, resembles a prehistoric dino- saur. But Martin Klein, head sonar expert of this past summer's expedition to the loch spon- sored by the New York Times and the Academy of Applied Sci- ence in Boston, is cautious about his discovery. Klein said in a telephone in- :erview from Salem, N.H., where his sonar manufacturing firm, Klein Associated is located, "It certainly bears further investigation." A picture of what might be a monster carcass of a ship- wreck or something else ap- peared in the electronics trade journal EDN, published here Friday. A carcass would establish Nessie's existence almost as well as a live specimen, but no one has ever found one. The picture is a side-scan so- nar trace of the bottom of Loch Ness. One object is almost cer- tain to be a barge sunk years ago. Nearby is what EDN said Klein described as "an unusual shape with a long neck-like pro- jection and what could possibly be flippers" about 30 feet long. EDN said the object was at 330 feet, too deep for a dive, but in his telephone interview Klein said the magazine was mistaken and it was 150 feet. Klein provided another pic- ture of a scan of what the sonar crew dubbed "The Average after the pre- historic animal that has been one candidate for the identity of the legendary monster. It also 'was about 30 feet long. In the draft of an article for Technology Review, the alumni publication of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Klein wrote of that scan, "As is often the situation in our type of work, we made one of the most intriguing finds just as we were about to wind up our survey." "The target has a carcasslike shape with a long neck-like projection, and... does not look like any of the other targets which we picked up in the loch. Of course it would be wild speculation to make any as- sumptions about this target without further investigation. An underwater television or a small submersible would prob- ably be needed for identi- fication "We named this target "The Average Pleasionsaur' to tease our paleontologist friends. It will be interesting to find if the target is still there when we next go to look for it." The expedition mounted a complex of cameras and other sonar equipment this summer in the loch in its most ambitious undertaking yet, and probably the raost ambitious monster hunt ever launched. It has not yet reported its findings. A sonar team of the Loch Ness monster ex- pedition has nicknamed the object shown in this sonar truce The Average Pleasiosaur, after the prehistoric animal that has been one candidate for the identity of the elusive creature. The object was detected toi feet of water off Fort Augustus and is about feet long.
