"Police quoted Dygas as saying he hadL
planned to hijack a plane flying from
Hungary to Yugoslavia in 1979, but was
arrested before he could carry out the
operation and was placed under a 5-year
foreign travel ban.
Despite a Polish request for his extradi-
tion, Dygas was handed over to West
German authorities for prosecution. He
faces a minimum five-year prison
sentence if convicted.
The plane, hijacked on a flight from
Wroclaw to Warsaw, returned to Poland
about six hours, later. Two passengers,
both men aged 19 and 22, asked for
political asylum and were allowed to re
main in the West.
Polish television said Dygas smuggled
the World War II grenade on board in a
transistor radio. U.S. officials said the

the detonator had been removed.
The plane landed at dusk at Tempelhof
air base and immediately was surrounded
by U.S. military police.
The two Americans were identified by
a U.S. military spokesman as Walter
Borowski and his sister Katherine
Borowski, both of Linden, N.J. Officials
said Miss Borowski was visiting her
brother a medical student in Warsaw.
The other passengers were all Poles, ac
cording to the officials.

Pientka, hijacked a LOT airliner on a
flight from Katowice to Gdansk and forc

ordered held in a West Berlin jail pending
trial on air piracy charges.
Since then, two other would-be hi
jackers have sought to divert LOT
domestic flights, but were overpowered
by security guards.

Convicted spy Boyce arrested Friday
after two Year esca&e from Cam
The Associated Press ' .
SEATTLE Convicted spy Christopher
Boyce, who escaped from the Lompoc,
Calif, federal prison nearly two years ago,
was arrested Friday night at a restaurant,
U.S. marshals said.
Marshals apprehended Boyce at the Pit
Stop Restaurant in Port Angeles at 8:40
p.m. PDT with the aid of FBI agents and
the Clallam County sheriffs office, said
deputy marshal Jack Tait.
Boyce, 28, was serving a 40-year sen
tence for selling classified documents to
the Soviets when he scaled the fence at
Lompoc Correctional Institution Jan, 21,
1980 and disappeared into the rugged
backcountry. . 1
Investigators admitted being stymied as '
to how the son of a former FBI agent
made his successful escape. An experi
enced falconer with intimate knowledge
of the wild, Boyce became the object of
an intense international search.
Authorities have had reports that he"
turned up in Africa, Alaska, and Mexico,
where his boyhood friend, Andrew
Daulton Lee, had made the Soviet, con
tacts to deliver the classified materials
In Washington, William Hall, director
of the U.S. marshal's service, confirmed
Hall said a task force of deputy mar
shals, FBI agents and Border Patrol offi- -cers
had the area under surveillance for
more than two weeks. Boyce was taken to
Seattle for further proceedings, he said.
FBI Director William Webster said the
arrest followed "a sustained cooperative
effort by several agencies."

Hinckley, charged with an assassina-.
tion attempt against Reagan on March
30, was returned a week ago to confine
ment at the Marine base at Quantico,
Va., after he underwent extensive psy
chiatric examination at the federal cor
rectional institution. at Butner, N.C.
It was at Butner, the lawyers said,
that Hinckley discovered guards were
reading his personal papers during
twice-daily searches of his cell while the
prisoner ' was , absent. They said the
readings were an unreasonable violation
of Hinckley's right of privacy, and that

The defense lawyers said the govern
ment claimed the searches were intended
to prevent Hinckley from committing
"self-destructive acts," but was hard
pressed to show how reading Hinckley's
personal papers would reduce the pos
sibility of "a further attempt at suicide."
"Mr. Hinckley's interest in main
taining the privacy of his personal pa
pers is, if anything, even more com
. pelling than that of an ordinary citizen
at this particular time," the lawyers said.
"He is brilliant," said Sheriff Steve
Kernes of Clallam County, where Boyce '
hid out. "He played the role very well.

Kernes said investigators suspected
Boyce may have robbed banks td support

Kernes refused to name - "and perhaps
in Washington state."
In Washington, D.C., FBI spokesman
Roger Young said Sunday the bureau was
investigating whether Boyce committed

"There are at least 16 unsolved bank .
robberies in the state of Washington,"
Young said. "We are not saying Boyce

Boyce may have hoped to further his
escape by air. He took flying lessons at '
Pearson Aircraft in Port Angeles and
