Dwelling on the prisoner of war issue, Habib asserted: "Your consistent, refusal to abide by the 1949 Geneva con- venlinn on the treatment of pris- oners is viewed by American and world opinion with dis- may." The issue, he said, "is urgent because of the deep humanitari- an concern which is aroused by your unconscionable, failure lo insure that prisoners uf war are treated fairly and humane- ly." He said it was essential that impartial observers inspect ene- my prisoner camps since "we have new shocking evidence that prisoners of war whom you hold arc subject lo inhumane treatment."

Curtis said Wednesday. Slroud filed for (he position on Monday. The district attor- ney asked for an opinion from Texas Atty. Gen. Crawford Martin to clarify the issue. Slroud said he would not re- sign his post until he hears Ihe outcome oi the May Republican primaries even though it ap- pears that the Texas Constitu- tion requires him lo do so, Cur- lis said. Under constitutional provi- sion, the mayor is required lo resign the moment he becomes a candidate for another public office, Curtis said. Citing one article, he said, Stroud could be fined for failure to comply. In his qiiestionaire lo the at- torney general's office, Curtis asked: Did the mayor's an- nounced candidacy lor county judge conslilute a resignation as if so, what was the effective date of the resigna- if not, is his tenure in of- fice otherwise and if Stroud has in reality relinquish- ed his post, who will fill the im- expired term.

The Russia-manned TU16 Badger bombers arc reported based in Egypt where other air- craft of Hie ramo lype have been sent by the Soviet Union lo the Cairo government. U.S. military authorities re- fuse lo how they knew planes with Egyptian insignia were flown by Russians, but presumably radio transmissions have been monilcrcd.
