ACTION: The renewal notice from the State Department .of Highways and Public. Transpor- tation, in Austin, probably is still floating around hunting for you. And without it, you cannot get your 1977 sticker except at three places: The Tax Assessor- Collector's office in the Court- house, or at one of the two sub- stations. They are at 6938 San Pedro, and South Park Mall. William C. Wilford, manager of the auto division of. the Tax As- sessor- Collector's office, says when you apply for your 1977 sticker, be sure to have your 1976 license receipt and positive iden- tification if you don't want to be stuck without a sticker.

Carter's Charge Denied .NAIROBI, Kenya (DPI) President Idl Amin today barred all Americans from leaving Uganda and ordered them lo meet with him Monday. The White House said President Carter was reviewing ihcsituation "withconcern." At (he same time Amln sent a mcsiiiiRe to Carter denying of violations of human rights in Uganda and telling (he President, "I hope to visit you In Iho While House In Ihe near fuiure." The ranking Ugandan diplomat in Washington told the Stale Department "there is no cause for' alarm" and said Amln merely wanls to reassure the Americans of their safety and express his appreciation for the work they have done. Diplomatic observers In Nairobi said the latest move by the unpredictable Ugandan "prcsldent-for-life" appeared lo be in retaliation for critical U.S. reaction to the recent deaths of Janan Luwum, the Anglican archbishop of Uganda, and two cabinet ministers, who Amin said were plotting to overthrow his government. The order barring the estimated, 175 Americans in URandu from leaving Ihe country was carried in a broadcast by Radio Uganda. The Americans, mostly missionaries, were ordered'to meet with Amin in Kampala Monday at II a.m. (3a.m. The Americans were told to bring "a memorandum" to the meeting. There was no further explanation. Government officials In various parts of Ihe country were ordered to draw up lists of Americans living in Ihcir areas and Ihcir "chickens, goats, pigs and other the broadcast said. In the statement, Amin said those Americans who "do not work for Zionist Israel" were free to stay in Uganda. "I ask you to pass my greetings to all Americans, both white and Amin told Carter. "I hope lo visit you in the White House in the near future." 'Friend9 Betrays Youth Trio Ransacks Teen's Home (Continued, Page 21, Col. 1.) A 17-year-old Highlands High School student who opened his apart- ment door to let in a classmate got more than he expected. The classmate and two other per- sons entered the South Side apartment and took the youth hostage while they ransacked the residence. Mrs. Murlene Irby, 7023 Quig, tele- phoned police about noon Thursday to report she received a call at work from her son, Tony, who told her a man was holding a cocked gun to his head. When police arrived at the apart- ment, Tony told officers that a class- mate and two other men had just fled with more than worth of items, including two television sets, .two gui- lars and a tape recorder. Tony told officers he answered the door about a.m. and let in the classmate and two men. One of the men pulled a pistol while the other man drew a knife and held It against Tony's throat, the yp'uth reported. Tony said he was forced Into the bathroom and ordered to stay there or he would be killed. The youth said he got out of the bathroom to call his mother, but the man with the pistol ordered him to put down the telephone before the conver- sation was completed.
