US retaliates, expels a Polish journalist

The State Department expelled a Polish news-agency correspondent from the United States Tuesday in retaliation for the Polish government's expulsion of United Press International correspondent Ruth Gruber last week.

Department spokesman John Hughes said correspondent Stanislaw Glabinski, of the Polish Press Agency (PAP), has until Thursday to leave the US. Mr. Hughes said the Polish agency could send another correspondent to replace Mr. Glabinski , if Poland permits another UPI correspondent to replace Ms. Gruber.
