Wilmington's filmography was pretty good. However, I feel that there were several other films that could be added to that list. They are: "Hondo" (1953). John Wayne is Hondo, a white man who's lived with the Apaches, and Michael Pate is Vittorio, an Apache chief who's angered by treaty violations. "Chief Crazy Horse" (1955). Victor Mature is the greatest Indian chief of all time and John Lund is a cavalry major. "The Light in the Forest"(1958). James MacArthur is a white boy raised by Indians who must return and live with a white family.

The Soviet Union has taken "significant action" in the past year to improve its compliance with arms-control agreements, the Bush Administration said Friday in releasing an annual report on arms-control violations.

The Soviets may have violated a troop withdrawal agreement by deploying up to 30 high-performance ground support warplanes in Afghanistan, U.S. officials said. The New York Times, which first reported the presence of the warplanes that were identified as MIG-27s, quoted an unidentified official as predicting a new Soviet offensive. Afghan rebels battling the Kabul regime confirmed the presence of two squadrons of MIG-27s at Shindand near the Iranian border, one U.S. official said.

The Soviet Union acknowledged Wednesday that its warplanes had aided Afghan government forces fighting for control of Kunduz in northern Afghanistan, but spokesman Gennady I. Gerasimov denied U.S. charges that the action violated the April 14 agreement on ending the Afghan conflict. "We are abiding by the Geneva agreement," Gerasimov told a news conference, arguing that Pakistan through its support of the Muslim guerrillas is the principal violator of the accord.
