BELFAST, Northern Ireland
(R) - Sniper fire claimed the
first British army casualty in
Northern Ireland's religious
violence and new rioting
flared early today in several
parts of Belfast despite the
p r e s e n c e of bayonet-toting
"The area of disturbance has
extended: Police and the military
are fully engaged," said a police
spokesman. "There is sniping from'
rooftops, rioting and sizeable
crowds in part of the city."
The Defense Ministry in London
said a British soldier was wounded
by a sniper's bullet, but that the
wound was not serious and he re-
turned to his post.
At 3 a.m. today, after 17 hours
of savage street fighting, police
reported two dead and 224
wounded, 62 by gunshot. This
brings the toll since Monday to
seven dead and 416 injured.
"Stay off the streets if you want
to stay alive," warned a Belfast

drops 1,000
Enrollment for the summer half term dropped sharply,
this year over the comparable period last year, the University
reported yesterday.
Summer half enrollment stands at 12,745-about 1,000
fewer than last year.
The bulk of the decline came in the graduate school
where enrollment decreased by about 900 -- from 4j666 last
year to 3,757 this year.
Officials in the Office of Academic Affairs said the de-
cline probably indicates that some students who might have
begun or continued graduate study in other years are now
either in military service or in draft-exempt occupations.
Under a 1967 revision of the' draft law, most students

As it rumbled along, a brief controversy swirled
over its routing through Ohio.
A spokesman for the railroad that took over
in Indiana, the Baltimore & Ohio, said the train
would have to be cleared at the Ravenna, Ohio,
ordnance plant before final delivery.
However, the plan was abandoned and the B&O
later announced the army and the U.S. Depart-
ment of Transportation had requested the train
be sent on.!
The original announcement, declaring there'
were- serious questions about the delivery of the
train, said: "the cars pose no threat in their pres-
ent c6ndition while standing at the Ravenna
ordnance plant and will be moved under all pos-
sible safeguards when the B&O is given further
instructions for the handling of this train."
But the later statement, apparently released
before the train arrived at the ordnance plant,
said: "In compliance with requests py the Army
and the Department of Transportation, the Balti-

celed its plan to hold the special

About an hour after dawn, The

said over the telephone: "All the

were torn up and paint was poured

The anonymous caller said he
