The Ingavi regiment and the air

Barrientos declared the rebel-

reason that Cochabamba is in

Even in La Paz, there were re-

up and seized the chief of the
armed forces. He was then re-
leased by the rebels with the un-
derstanding he would go to gov-

dent to resign, informants said.
Instead, militia and police sur-
rounded the rebel regiment, which
agreed to surrender if no soldiers
were arrested. The air force tech-
nical school joined the Ingavi
regiment in its two-hour uprising,
informants said. In all, about a
dozen junior regimental officers
were detained, these sources added.

Court Voids
'Closing Lawy
By The Associated Press
LANSING-Michigan's weekend
closing law was struck down
unanimously Monday by the state
Supreme Court. But the eight jus-
tices disagreed on just why the
law was unconstitutional.
The two-year-old law required
most merchants to close one day
a week-either Saturday or Sun-
day. It delegated to county boards
of supervisors the power of set-
ting criminal penalties, and per-
mitted each county board to ex-
empt its county completely from
the law.

U.S. leaders here believe that
the war in South Viet Nam is
fundamentally a local war sup-
ported in secondary ways by Com-
munist powers outside. While at-
tacks on supply routes and bases
outside South Viet Nam would be
useful, they believe, the war bas-
ically will be won or lost within
the borders of South Viet Nam.
For several months the United
States has quietly probed the sit-
uation, with a few actual raids

Sweeping Social Reforms
LONDON (P)-British Prime Minister Harold Wilson's new Labor
government announced yesterday a sweeping program of social change.
Then Wilson opened a turbulent policy debate that brought a Con-
servative motion condemning him.
The motion, which amounts to a censure, assailed the prime min-
ister for calling a "parliamentary leper" the Conservative who once
defeated the new foreign secretary, Patrick Gordon Walker. The tu-
mult broke out after Queen Elizabeth II had read the traditional

First Debate
In the first full-scale debate,
of Britain's 43rd Parliament, Wil-
son recalled that Gordon Walker
had been beaten in Britain's Oct.
15 election by a Conservative, P.
H. S. Griffiths. Laborites accused
Griffiths of fanning racial ha-
treds. The electoral district of
Smethwick, near Birmingham,
has many colored immigrants.
Wilson asserted the. Smethwick
result would "leave a lasting brand
of shame on the Conservative
Party." He called upon Sir Alec
Douglas-Home, former prime min-
ister, to disown Griffiths.
Despite his margin of only five
votes in the 630-member House
of Commons, Wilson's catalogue
of 20 bills was featured by sev-
eral other controversial measures.
Topping them are laws attacking
monopolies and mergers, requir-
ing big firms to disclose the mon-
ey they pay to political parties,
curbing rents and real estate
prices and abolition of the death
penalty. The Conservatives an-
nounced they will fight this pro-

The president in September
exiled 34 political leaders and put
the nation under virtual military
rule. This in turn led to student
antigovernment demonstrations,
and disaffection spread to the
tin mining interior. There, left-
ist-led tin miners raised the flag
of rebellion but order was report-
ed restored by last weekend.

Chief Justice Thomas Kavanagh
and Justices Harry F. Kelly and
Otis M. Smith agreed on the sec-
ond point but not on the first.
The remaining two justices,
Michael D. O'Hara and John R.
Dethmers, said enforcement of the
law would be "ludicrously impos-
sible and farcical."
