Five Films One of the five films, “Iran,” was made by Claude Lelouch in 1973. It has been described as a “Persian carpet tour through a world of brilliant colors, fascinating people, and ancient and modern contrasts.” Another of the four will be “Israel: A Search for Faith” by the well-known James Michener, made in 1977 for Readers’ Digest. Oil paintings, drawings, and footage from other films are used in “Jeru­ salem,” which is described as an “impressionistic” history of the great city. The fourth film is “Who Are the Arabs?” by Antony Thomas, a British filmaker. The film, made for the Learning Corporation, was designed to show the diversity of the people known as Arabs. The fifth film, added only this week to the program, is “Turkey Has Some Surprises,” and it is described as a “travel” film. The total program now will last almost two hours.

North, son of the Rev. and Mrs. Francis S. North of North Haven. Miss Schweinsburg is employed by the Sag Harbor Branch of the First National Bank of East Hampton. Her fiance works for the Grumman Aero­ space Corporation in Calverton. A December wedding is planned. ENVIRONMENTAL DA Continued from Page 1 “Here we’re using the muscle of the criminal court to accomplish some­ thing. It’s been inappropriate for the taxpayers to have to pay for this.” He spoke of a “civic association president being arrested” because of a “bonfire” at a civic event at which the president had not been present. “This is wrong.” In other changes in the DA’s office, which now includes 87 prosecutors and 75 detectives, Mr. Henry — who lives in Babylon and is the son of Lindsay Henry, Suffolk’s DA from 1947 to 1953 — said he was “re-emphasizing prior­ ities,” would have the Rackets Bureau concentrate on “loan - sharking and gambling” and termed organized crime \a bigger danger to the community than most people realize or want to believe.” He said he was “toughening up on plea bargaining. When it’s abused, it’s self-defeating.” He referred to his Scottish ancestory and said he was a “great believer in restitution . . . that victims ought to be made whole,” and would be promoting this. Of one of the more sensational cases open to the public without charge. Tole work and the animal and bird life of the Quogue Wildlife Refuge are scheduled for future meetings. Saturday Opening JUDITH TREISTMAN, Clinton Academy project director for the East Hampton Historical Society, greets Allen Planz and Ralph Carpentier, backs from left, while Jonathan Foster, right, and Marianne Kenney, rear, look on. The “Today Is History” exhibit at the Academy will continue through Feb. 11. Cal Norris still hanging from the tenure of Mr. O’Brien, the only Democrat to have held the DA’s spot in Suffolk, a charge that former Suffolk Republican Chair­ man Edwin M. Schwenk had mis­ appropriated $345,000 in party funds, Mr. Henry said he had “gone through the case personally” and declined further comment. However, sources in the office said the case was being pursued. Mullin Named Mr. Henry said he has fired no one in the office, although there have been a number of resignations. He said overall he is moving on a campaign pledge to “professionalize” the office. He has named John Mullin the chief assistant DA, and Gerard Sullivan chief trial prosecutor and head of felony prosecu­ tion and training. Both men, as is Mr. Henry, are veteran Suffolk prosecu­ tors. Mr. Henry was an assistant Suffolk DA for 11 years, including two years under Mr. O’Brien. Mr. Henry said he works almost always out of Riverhead. “I prefer to be at the County seat,” he said. And, he said he has had the DA’s private office in Hauppauge converted to additional space for the Anti-Corruption Bureau which, he said, he was working to improve. He said he’s received “over 100’ resumes” from people seeking assist­ ant DA positions, which are appointive and up until a decade ago were thoroughly part of the GOP political patronage system. Mr. Henry said he’s received but “two or three” requests from those in politics recommending someone for a prosecutor’s job.
