At Motel two Kentucky girls slain in Gatlinburg Mideast assassins prowling the West by Jeffrey Ulbrich associated press writer Paris apr men with hazy Mideast connections Are prowling the streets of Western capitals settling political disputes on behalf of their employers with the ultimate argument a a Bullet in the brain. Three assassination attempts this month two of them successful have focused world attention on bloody internal conflicts in two major Middle Eastern regimes Iran and Syria. And French officials Are enraged because their nations tradition As a land of Asylum is being used to make it a base for violent reprisals a including mondays shooting of former syrian Premier Salah Eddin Al Bitar an opponent of the Damascus government and the attempt last week to kill former iranian Premier Shahpour Bakhtiar an opponent of the late Shah and Iran a revolutionary regime. The Battle is not confined to France. All Tabatabai a vocal opponent of a editor s notebook by James l. Crawford the new lighting system and new stands will be a Nice addition to i corbins football Field when the Phon opens this fall. The 1m-i prove ments Arentt cheap. Cost Between $90,000 and $100,000. But when everything is completed Campbell Field will compare favourably with any football Complex i in this part of Kentucky. A and that a Good. Fans will a predate getting the Light poles i moved from in front of the stadium. I the old poles have been in the ground so Long they re probably i unsafe to climb. A but other improvements Are just Las important to the sports program i As modernising Campbell Field. The i number one priority has to be a a naming track. Not Only is a track i valuable to the school system but it i is a facility that can be utilised by a i wide segment of the Community. A a Strong track program would a a have a beneficial effect on every h sport played at Corbin High school. I any athlete who runs track will 8 improve is Speed and quickness i and that translates into the winning i a Dee in other snorts. A a track can be fitted on the outside a perimeter of the present football i practice Field. While the track is being constructed the practice Field i which resembles a Washer Board i should be regraded and re grassed. Dressing and storage facilities h adjacent to the practice Field would relieve the congestion at the gym h Naium where two basketball teams and the football squad must share we relatively Small dressing quarters. If the football team had a facility h Large enough to accommodate the a weight lifting program and storage we space for football track and Wpm big Sical education equipment both a a a Fil is Ball and basketball would be a much better off. And while we re talking about my facilities and policies lets pm a Phaize again that a successful h basketball program requires h widespread Community Par h to citation a at All age Levels not just h High school. My in be never been Able to com my pretend Why the school Board will a permit elephants crowds at a wrestling matches and disco by dancers to trample freely on theh gym floors but not allow citizens to ���1 by Ltd basketball on the very same h a it is. Their logic escapes me. A the Board did spend about $30,000 1 repairing the old gym and then promptly blamed the problem on the menus Independent basketball league. The older boys and men did no to harm Edwards gym and that a a fact i can personally attest to because for two years i was at the gymnasium nearly every Day the my a i menus league played. The men always acted responsibly. Part of the damage was Normal Wear and tear. The building is getting old and tilings like the roof need periodic replacement then some damage was caused by the youngsters in the various Small Fry programs. In a not criticizing the Little league coaches or the Optimist gub. A Volunteer coach is responsible for his team s conduct during practice time and games. No one can ask him to be at the gym an hour before and an hour after a team activity. But most of the vandalism occurred after the new High school opened and the old gymnasium and High school building were locked up and forgotten about. And that was a Board decision and the Board is responsible for what happened. Now that the Board has hired watchmen there a no excuse Why both gymnasiums can t be opened at reasonable times for the Public to use. By doing so the Board would also be helping the High school Pyn Griffe How do you think inner City kids develop individual skills by playing constantly Many times against older Guys. It can be done on outside courts but Corbin does no to have lighted outside courts so Why not utilise the gymnasiums iranian Leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini died from an assassins Bullet in a Washington suburb july 22.

Palestinians israelis armenians iraqis and others also have settled political differences with guns and bombs in european streets. A France must be and continue to be a land of Asylum a president Valery Giscard Deestaing said after the attacks in july. A on the other hand France will not serve As a base for foreign citizens seeking to organize or undertake actions of khad Afy and officials in Iran and Syria have made no secret of their desire to eliminate exiled opponents but no government or group has claimed responsibility for the most recent violence. In the growing dispute Between Iran and Iraq both nations have exchanged charges of assassination attempts. French police and Interior ministry officials Greet questioners with Stony silence when asked about the possibility of More assassination teams in France and what action is being taken by French authorities. Britain its Arab population of 100,000 swollen by tens of thousands of iranians has indicated a willingness to get Tough a sending crack commandos to end the takeover in april at the iranian embassy in London and expelling libyans chief representative. Police and intelligence sources in Britain now believe there Are a a some assassins sent by khad Afy in London but say the level of intimidation by libyans has declined. Officials in other european capitals and in the United states either deny knowledge of political assassins in their nations or refuse comment.
