Members of the anti-government group M19 executed Chester Allan Bitterman, a Bible translator, hours after they announced that time for negotiating his release had run out. Secretary of State Alexander Haig denounced the killing as "a despicable and cowardly act which we totally condemn." In his hometown of Lancaster, Pa., Bitterman's mother took the news calmly, saying her family had been prepared "for what the Lord wants." Meanwhile, Mean-while, Columbian police had arrested 50 people in connection with the slaying. Bitterman had been shot through the heart once, and officials said he had not suffered since he apparently was drugged before the killing. M-19 said Bitterman was a CIA spy and demanded that the organization he worked for The Summer Sum-mer Institute of Linguistics leave the country. The Institute, which translates .the Bible into a variety of tribal languages refused. Early Saturday, the hijacked bus apparently picked Bitterman up, then drove around for several hours before the terrorists killed him. Athens, Greece Three earthquakes and more than 200 tremors shook Greece early last week, but the biggest problem was panic. The only fatality was a 52-year-old man who died of a heart attack, and nine people were injured as a result of panic. Despite official pleas to ignore wild rumors about imminent death, Athenians made plans to leave town, and foreigners also were thinking of fleeing. Actress Melina Mercouri said people from her area were living in the streets, and another observer ob-server said he was impressed by "how easily we can be terrorized." Damascus, Syria A Pakistani airliner hijacked last week by three men landed at Damascus, where Syrian officials joined the negotiations for the lives of over 100 passengers, including three Americans. The hijackers, who are believed sympathetic to heirs of deposed- and-hanged Pakistani Premier Ali Bhutto, have released over 30 of their hostages but still have 111 people. v One passenger was shot to death Friday at Kabul Airport in Afghanistan, where the plane .jhad .been stalled, .fpiusix days. The victim was believed to be a participant in the 1979 coup which ousted Bhutto. , While the plane was in Kabul, frustrated Pakistani officials were forced to negotiate with the hijackers through Afghan intermediaries, and they charged Afghanistan with aiding in the hijacking. The hijackers flew on to Damascus when Pakistan refused their demands for release of a group of political prisoners. Lubeck, West Germany A grief-stricken mother pumped six bullets into the man on trial for killing her 7-year-old daughter. Kalus Grabowsky, 35, had just walked into the courtroom court-room when Marianne Bachmeier reached into her coat and pulled out a Beretta pistol. After the ' shooting, she calmly dropped the gun and let court officials take her into custody. Grabowsky was killed instantly. Grabowsky, convicted twice previously for child molestation, was on trial for allegedly strangling little Anna Bachmeier with a stocking after luring her to his house. Grabowsky said he had only "stroked" the girl, but killed her out of fear he would be arrested for another sex offense. offen-se. He was voluntarily castrated after his other convictions, but later received hormone shots to restore his sex drive. Witnesses said Mrs. Bachmeier had been "extremely "ex-tremely quiet and grave" in the trial's early days. Edmonton, Alberta A homosexual who feared evangelical preachers for attacking gays was sentenced to four years in prison for settling blazes in two churches, a synagogue and a mausoleum. Daniel Kautz, a 32-year-old janitor, told his lawyer he believed he was the Anti-Christ, Anti-Christ, and said that after setting his last fire, he howled at the moon because he believed it would help him stop the arson. Kautz's lawyer said his client had been influenced in-fluenced by TV programs like "The Old Time Gospel Hour." He began his crime wave on Feb. 13, when he visited the Beth Shalom Synagogue, scrawled a swastika on a blackboard, and set a fire causing $1 million in damage. NATIONAL Michigan City, Indiana "I don't hold no grudges," said Steven Judy. "This is my doing, sorry it happened." Moments later, two jolts of electricity surged through his body, in the electric elec-tric chair, and Judy became the fourth convicted murderer in the U.S. to die since the 1976 revival of the death penalty. It was Indiana's first execution in 20 years. An ACLU appeal for delay of the execution was refused by the governor because it did not have an endorsement from Judy, who preferred death to life in prison. "He was very relaxed. I don't think it hurt," said his foster father, Robert Carr. Judy was executed for the 1979 rape-strangulation rape-strangulation of Terry Lee Chasteen, and the drowning of her three children. Her husband, Robert, was among a group of pro-execution demonstrators outside the prison gates, and said he had wanted to see the execution. The three other killers executed in recent years were Jesse Bishop (Oct. 22, 1979.) John Spenkelink (May 25, 1979) and Gary Gilmore (Jan. 17, 1977). New York That's the way it was for the last time. Walter Cronkite retired Friday from the CBS Evening News, ending a 19-year tenure that established him as one of the country's most trusted men and, at one point, even prompted suggestions that he run for vice president. Cronkite ended his familiar sing-off by adding, "I'll be away on assignment, and Dan Rather will be sitting in here for the next few years." Cronkite became part of the fabric of national life in many ways. In 1980, he was supposedly offered of-fered the second spot on John Anderson's third-party third-party ticket. And his nightly tabulation of the hostages' days in captivity became an integral part of the crisis. Salt Lake City Joseph Paul Franklin was convicted last week on two federal civil rights charges involving the murders of two black joggers. The jury found that Franklin denied civil rights to David Martin and Ted Fields by killing them, thus denying them use of a public park. "It's a government frame-up," said Franklin as he was led from the court room. The prosecution relied on witnesses who testified about Franklin's racist remarks, and others who claim they saw his car a Chevrolet Camaro in the area shortly before the shooting. Franklin's attorney, Robert L. Van Sciver, contended con-tended the testimony was inconsistent and said there was a possibility more than one gunman was involved. Franklin was taken from court during the trial after he repeatedly interrupted with loud statements. "I don't feel like going to a firing squad just because of some liars," he yelled. After the guilty verdict, the Salt Lake county attorney's office announced they would try Franklin in two to three months, and ask for the death penalty. Washington While . critics talked about a second Vietnam debacle, President Reagan said he would not send combat troops to El Salvador. Reagan made those assurances twice in a farewell interview with Walter Cronkite and a Friday press conference but refused to rule out certain options, like a blockade to prevent Soviet and Cuban arms from reaching the nation. Secretary of State Haig also refused to say administration ad-ministration involvement would be halted after the current shipment of 20 new advisers and $25 million in military aid to the country. Meanwhile, Salvadoran President Duarte continued con-tinued to ask for $300 million in economic, not military, aid and extended an amnesty offer to anti-junta guerrillas. New Orleans Thronging Mardi Gras crowds accidentally caused the deaths of two children, turning the uninhibited annual celebration into tragedy. Margaret McKinzie, 2, was standing with her father when she was pushed under a float. And Christian Lambert, 8, was knocked off a ladder when a crowd began fighting for favors tossed by float riders in a parade. Such ladders are put up along parade routes for children to watch the festivities. Police began studying ways to prevent future deaths, such as mechanisms to keep people from reaching or falling under floats. They also hinted criminal charges might be filed on the deaths. Washington President Reagan completed his budget-cutting package, which calls for slashes in more than 300 federal programs amounting to $6.4 billion this year, and $48.6 billion in 1982. But critics began to warm up their slugging arms to attack it. Sen. Ted Kennedy held a press conference featuring a 20-year-old drug addict named Amy, who said that Reagan's cuts in drug rehabilitation would be like telling her "to go out and die." The director of the New York drug center cen-ter which treats Amy said the cuts would force him to turn 25 of his patients into the streets. Los Angeles E. Y. "Yip" Harburg, who wrote the words for Judy Garland's "Over the Rainbow," Rain-bow," died Friday in a head-on auto collision on Sunset Boulevard. Police said Harburg, 84, was driving in rainy weather when he crossed the double line and smashed into another car. As a youth, Harburg ran an electrical ap-plicance ap-plicance business which was wiped out in the Depression. His reaction to that, in part, was to write the '30s hit, "Buddy, Can You Spare a Dime." He won an Oscar for "Rainbow," written for the 1939 movie "Wizard of Oz," and co-wrote the film's other songs with Harold Arlen. During the '50s, he was investigated by Congressional Red-hunters who suspected that his song "Happiness "Hap-piness Is a Thing Called Joe" was a tribute to T-i-r-U C4 oil-.
