C7757 NEW YORK (AP) A con- vict at Attica state prison says that a guard's chance misunder- standing of the actions of two prisoners practising football moves led directly to the bloody four-day rebellion, the New York Times reports. Both The Times and the New York Daily News today pub- lished lengthy background ac- counts of the Attica uprising. Both accounts emphasize that confusion reigned before and during the assault that crushed the insurrection. The News, in the first of a five-part series on the revolt, says there exists "no single objective record" of the events during the assault Sept. 13 when most of the 42 deaths at Attica occurred. Both The Times and The News tell of prisoners, accused by their fellow convicts of not going along with the rebellion, being found with their throats cut. The Times says its word chronology of events lead- ing up to and including the as- sault was pieced together from prisoners, doctors, lawyers and legislators and from tapes, films, letters and notebooks. The Times says the misunder- standing that sparked the rebel- lion occurred late Wednesday afternoon Sept. 8 as the prison- Kosygin visiting Algeria MOSCOW (Renter) Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin left Mocow by air on an official visit to Algeria today, Tass news agency reported. During his four-day stay to Algeria, to be followed by a visit to Morocco, Kosygin is ex- pected to talk with Algerian President Houari Boumedienne about strengthening the al- ready-close ties between the two countries. In Moscow the tour was seen as aimed at extending Soviet in- fluence in the Western Arab world and the Mediterranean area. It's part of what has devel- oped into a large-scale Soviet diplomatic offensive, with Presi- dent Nikolai Podgorny now in Hanoi and Communist party leader Leonid Breznev due in France later this month.

The director of civil aviation for the ministry of transport said the joint city-MOT study j is within a month of being completed.

A white convict, Ray Lanio- rie, said to be a coach of tl prison football team, was dem- jonstrating a lineman's moves and feints to a young black, I Leroy Dcwer, The Times says. At that moment, Lieut. Rich- ard Mulrooney, a prison guard, stepped into the yard and saw what he mistakenly assumed was a fight between the two, The Times says. The paper quotes an unidenti- i fied prisoner as saying that Tjie j Mulrooney stepped up, put his hand on Dewer's shoulder and Dcwer spun around and hit him in an apparent reflex action. Lamorie defended Dewer. who was encircled by other prisoners for protection, and the guards did not press a demand that he leave the yard. The Times says. But it added that two hours later the two convicts were summoned from their cells and rumors circulated that they had been beaten. The following morning prison- ers on the way to the mess hall burst into rebellion, over- powered five guards, then moved down a passageway to Times the intersection of four cellblock walls in yard, The Times say. the CELEBRATE ANNIVERSARY Ambassador Huang Huo and his wife, right, greet thi men's and women's coaches of the People's Republic of China table tennis team now touring Canada.

Here are 20 from Pontiac. f A few of the features standard 1 on our full-size'725. j 1. The bumps and bruises of minor as in parking lots, drive- ways and brushed off by the 1972 energy-absorbing front bumper. Pontiac can really take life's little knocks. 2. The accumulation of corrosive road salt is reduced as a result of open rocker panels. 3. Also protecting your investment are inner fenders and acrylic lacquer body finish. 4. All doors have thick, steel Side-guard beams. 5. The trunk has a Cargo-guard. 6. You get a strong, double-panel roof that helps to keep things quiet. 7. Door handles are flush and neat. You open the door with a gentle pull. When leaving, you simply push down the inside button and slam the door to lock it. 8. You get in and out easier because the body and glass are curved. 9. Front seat cushions and the back of the rear seat are of longer-lasting, one- piece molded foam. Very comfortable. 10. The instrument panel is fully-padded, Viwnc of the equipment optional at extra cost. wraps around for convenience, and is trimmed with the look of imported teak. 11. On all V8 models, 3-speed Turbo Hydra-Malic transmission is standard. 12. Power brakes are also standard with power discs in front. 13. And you get power steering. Again, standard. And it's the variable-ratio and positive. Now that's value! 14. When you turn on the engine, you turn on the powered ventilation system. Adjustable, flow-through fresh air, even standing still. 15. A Wide-Track Pontiac has its steering linkage forward-mounted for better directional stability. 16. The windshield wipers are hidden and, if you order a radio, so is the antenna. A couple of ideas Pontiac thought of first. 17. Pontiac engines use regular, low-lead or no-lead fuels. 18. Evaporative and exhaust emission controls are standard equipment. They do their best work when you keep your car in tune. 19. Every Pontiac has a long list of standard features designed to protect occupants, prevent accidents, and deter theft.

If you must pull over to the shoulder of a road at nighr, ihc four-way warning Hasher will alert other drivers that you arc slopped. Your direction signal control has a lane change feature. And when you signal for an upcoming nirn, the front side marker lamps will flash with the direction signal.
