REEDY LONDON (AP) Seven years ago British officials, welfare societies and the po- lice decided something heel io be clone for victims of violent crime. They asked: How about the innocent person, perhaps maimed for life, unable to pel a job again or to walk or even see? Out of the discussions grew a compensation program put to Parliament only as a white paper. This meant the program would be carried out experi- mentally until it could prove its worth. The proof now has been es- tablished, says the home of- fice. Therefore experts arc drafting legislation to put a full-scale legal umbrella over the scheme, the only national program of its kind. For seven years the home office reports claims disposed of, with almost million awarded. The average is about ?940 but some awards have been large. A 28-year-old man beaten by two intruders was given because he was des- tined to spend the rest of his life in a wheel chair. PACKAGE EXPLODES Anna Korhonen, a Finnish girl, was awarded bc- cause of disfigurement, pain and extended hospital treat- ment. She and her escort found a package in a movie and started to deliver it to police. It exploded. Police sus- pected it was dynamite left by a terrorist. Not everyone who Is at- tacked claims compensation. Rev. John Byrne. struck 25 times by an intruder, said in a sermon, "I forgive lliis man." Applications are running about 8.000 a year.

The vessel is anchored in Hong Kong harbor where ship- ping magnats C. Y. Tung and his Island Navigation Co. are converting the 31-year-old for- mer Cunard liner into a floating university and cruise ship. Hundreds of workers arc Icar ing out old wiring, chipping old paint and scraping off the rust of two years acquired when the liner was an unsuccessful tour- ist attraction at Fort Lauder- dale, Fla. Welders are fitting new metal parts, upholsterers are repad- ding chairs, mechanics are. ren- ovating the elevators and engi- neers are repairing the four en- gines. Tlie liner has been renamed K.S Soawisc University, a nun on Tung's initials, r.nd ,-as been registered in Nassau, Bahamas.
