Twelve followers of political extremist Lyndon H. LaRouche Jr. have been arrested in Virginia, New Jersey and California on charges that they wheedled loans from New Yorkers with no intention of paying them back, New York Atty. Gen. Robert Abrams said. Three more defendants were being sought. They were not identified in Abrams' announcement of an 18-count indictment alleging grand larceny, conspiracy, securities fraud, scheming to defraud and unlicensed securities dealing.

With only three days until the election, Geraldine A. Ferraro buried the hatchet Saturday and endorsed Robert Abrams in his race for a Senate seat. Fellow Democrats praised Ferraro, saying her action could give Abrams the Italian-American vote he needs to defeat GOP incumbent Sen. Alfonse M. D'Amato. Abrams, who narrowly defeated Ferraro in a rough-and-tumble primary, announced the endorsement at a campaign rally Ferraro didn't attend.

MARIO'S MESSAGE: Geraldine A. Ferraro has yet to endorse the rival who narrowly defeated her in New York's Democratic Senate primary last month, and that has forced Gov. Mario M. Cuomo to try to play peacemaker. . . . Cuomo recently revealed that Ferraro remains upset that the primary winner, state Atty. Gen. Robert Abrams, did not denounce attacks on her character and ethics that another candidate launched in the campaign's waning days. The attacks erased Ferraro's large lead in the polls.

If the New York Senate race were a movie, it would be X-rated. Vitriol is the fuel of the campaign--perhaps the nastiest in the nation. The tone of the political discourse can be judged by just a few examples. Not only has Republican Sen. Alfonse M. D'Amato referred to his Democratic opponent, state Atty. Gen. Robert Abrams, as a "sleeze bag." He has called him a "plastic Bobby Doll" and "Mudslide Bob."

As expected, Tuesday's host of primaries resulted in a record for the number of women winning Senate nominations. Unexpectedly, it was a little-known state senator on the West Coast who broke the record, rather than a nationally prominent New Yorker. Democrat Patty Murray's resounding primary victory in Washington state made her the 11th woman tabbed by the major parties to run for the Senate this November, topping the old mark of 10 set in 1984.

When the political season opened this year, Democrats in this heavily Democratic state were rubbing their hands in glee at the prospect of going against Sen. Alfonse M. D'Amato, a two-term Republican whom his foes delight in referring to as "Sen. Sleaze." Battered by repeated charges of ethical improprieties and suffering from some of his lowest approval ratings ever in the polls, D'Amato never looked more susceptible to a Democratic challenge.

Former vice presidential candidate Geraldine A. Ferraro, battered by sustained attacks on her character, trailed state Atty. Gen. Robert Abrams early today in New York's bitter Democratic Senate primary. With 99% of the vote counted, Abrams led Ferraro by a single percentage point--37% to 36%. Abrams had declared victory. "With virtually all of the districts in, we have an insurmountable lead," he told cheering supporters.

A judge temporarily barred a national penny-stock brokerage house from soliciting new business in New York state Tuesday after the state attorney general said there was evidence that it had defrauded millions of dollars from thousands of investors. Atty. Gen. Robert Abrams said records showed that Power Securities Corp. of Las Vegas participated in "a massive fraud and swindle" that involved manipulating stock prices, creating artificial markets and marking up stock prices by 100% or more.
