A U.S. senator rattled a sedate conference on defense issues here Saturday when he accused the West German government of failing to stop equipment and supplies from being shipped to a suspected chemical weapons plant in Libya.

McCain III (R-Ariz.) told the high-level seminar that senior Bonn officials "must have known that West German firms were contributing to the proliferation of chemical and biological weapons."

Campaign Funds: The U.S. senators caught in the web of controversy over their aiding Lincoln Savings & Loan would help the former operators of the Irvine-based S&L if they would return more than $175,000 in campaign funds, some observers say. As one lawyer put it, the money would go back to its donors--Charles H. Keating Jr.
