Kama! Hassan Aly, prime min ister of F^gypt, said before leaving Cairo for the United States “there is a chance” that seven Americans kid napped in Lebanon since March 1984 will be released if the United States lifts its boycott of the Beirut airport. A U.S. official said he had no in formation on the matter and reiter ated the American refusal to make deals with terrorists. Washington has suspended the U.S. landing rights of Lebanese commercial airlines and asked its allies, with little success, to join in isolating the airport until se curity is improved. Prime Minister Rashid Karami said an army force of 300 soldiers from rival Moslem communities would try to expel the militias from the Moslem sector of the capital and tighten security at the airport, which is on west Beirut’s seaside fringe, which has been the scene of several hijackings. But Walid Jumblatt, leader of the powerful Druse Moslem militia, said the plan was “not a solution” and he would not rest until President Amin Gemayel was driven from of fice. Maurice Khawam, . prosecutor- general of Mt. Lebanon County, which includes the airport, in structed presiding magistrate Sabah Haidar to open a judicial inquiry and prosecute the men, who seized the TWA jet and killed an American passenger, for murder, hijacking and smuggling weapons aboard.

Ogorodnikov, 35, stood silently with her attorneys and an inter preter as U.S. District Judge David Kenyon imposed the sentence. He asked if she wished to speak, and she indicated through her attorney that she did not. Ogorodnikov, who sometimes had wept during testimony at the trial, showed no reaction as the judge sen tenced her. Kenyon said she would become el igible for parole after having served one-third of that term. Kenyon sentenced Nikolay Ogo rodnikov, Ogorodnikov’s husband, to eight years in prison after the So viet emigre entered his plea to con spiracy with fired FBI agent Richard, W. Miller, 48. Miller is the first FBI agent ever indicted on espionage charges. Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Kendall told the court last week that he wanted Ogorodnikov sentenced before Miller’s trial began. No date has been set for Miller’s trial. The guilty pleas came after 31 days of testimony in a federal trial marked by testimony about Ogord- nikov’s love affair with Miller.

Bentz could help deter mine how much ground organized labor has recovered since it received a major blow from the Supreme Court’s 1983 decision in the case of a New Jersey building supply com pany named Bildisco. “Bildisco held that, in effect, the employer could reject the contract without w'aiting for court approval, which seemed flat in the face of the bankruptcy reforms of 1978, which said contracts can be rejected subject to court approval,” said Harvard Law School professor Vern Coun tryman, who is representing unions in another case.
