BELFAST, Northern Ireland (N)-- Four bomb blasts
rocked Londonderry yesterday and guerrilla gunmen fought
a two-hour battle with British troops that the army called
the city's biggest confrontation since street fighting began
in August 1969.
The bombings sent 25 persons to hospitals suffering from
shock and minor injuries. Two of the bombs were 100-pound
gelignite charges placed inside two parked autos. Both cars
had been left where they could do the worst possible damage
to shops and offices.
Warnings preceded the bombings, but police were not

able to evacuate the areas in

the school, communication within

school to the professions. .

ganization has not as yet com-
mented on the incident.
The explosions come only one
day after.a 100-pound bomb killed
six people and wounded 150 oth-
ers on a Belfast street crowded
with noontime shoppers.
In that case, guerrillas had
warned of a blast on one street
and when police evacuated people
to a second street, the bomb went
off there.
Blame for the Belfast explosion
has not been fixed. The IRA's of-
- ficial wing has denied responsibil-
ity and its militant nationalist
s Provisional wing so far has issued
only a blunt "no comment."
- A Protestant based organization
e called on the government to ban

t fast and Londonderry as a means
n of halting bombers.
s In the wake of the explosion,
n leaders of both major British par-
ties warned that a way to end
- the violence must be found soon.
- "If we fail," Home Affairs Min-
e ister Reginald Maulding told the
House of Commons, "we will cre-

violence and murder and inhu-

breed and take over."
t Labor party leader Harold Wil-
t son said the mood in Ireland had

developing which could engulf not

Daily News Analysis
A Republican proposal to re-I
draw the city's ward boundaries
has stirred further controversy in
a long smoldering battle between
the GOP and the Democrats.
According to state law, the city
must redraw its ward boundaries
after each federal census.
What irks city Democrats -
they say - is that the Republi-
cans devised and submitted their
plan to the city council without
reference to the city's ward and
boundary commission.

ew GOP plan

CHICAGO (1-Sen. Edmund
Muskie rolled past Eugene Mc-
Carthy last night to win the
Illinois presidential popularity
contest, and led Sen. George
McGovern in a twin primary
battle for Democratic nation-
al convention delegates.
Meanwhile, Chicago M a y o r
Richard Daley was taking a beat-
ing as two candidates he had en-
dorsed had lost or were losing
early this morning.
Muskie. the one-time Democrat-
ic front-runner, bent on a 'come-
back after an also-ran showing in
the Florida primary a week ago,
polled about 63 per cent of the
presidential preference vote over
McCarthy in an expected victory.
The stakes in that race were
mainly psychological, with Muskie
seeking to regain political momen-
tum for the crowded, crucial Wis-
consin primary April 4. where all
the Democratic contenders will be
With 70 per cent of the 10.858
precincts reporting, the race stood
this way:
Muskie - 540,384 votes, or 63
per cent.
McCarthy - 320,591 votes, or
37 ner cent.
The count was slower in the
complex delegate selection con-
test, where the stakes were more
tangible - 160 votes for the Dem-
ocratic nomination for President.
At least half of them were ex-
pected to go to uncommitted dele-
gates led by Daley
With 31 per cent of the precincts
c o u n t e d, delegates committed
to Muskie were in the lead for 47
convention posts, McGovern dele-
I ates led for 19, and uncommit-
ted entries for 54.
Edward Hanrahan won the
Democratic nomination for an-
other term as Cook County state's
attorney, decisively defeating two
candidates, one of whom was en-
dorsed by Daley.
H a n r a h a n, who had been
dumped by party leaders because
of his indictment stemming from
a police raid on a Black Panther
apartment, now stands as a ma-
jor rival of the 70-year-old Daley
for the leadership of the state's
powerful Democratic organization.
And in the major state-level
contest, party insurgent Daniel
Walker held a narrow lead over
Lt. Gov. Paul Simon - Daley's
choice for the Democratic nomin-
ation for governor as results came
in early this morning.
Muskie's preferential primary
victory was a landslide by any
standard, but it came over a less-
than-f ormidable rival..
Nonetheless, he staged an in-
tensive and costly campaign in
Illinois, spending about $250,000,

Furthermore, since McGovern
wasn't entered in the preference
poll, Democrats who supported his,
delegate slate likely voted for Mc-
Carthy in the popularity poll.

licans crossed over in droves to

Statewide, the switches appear-
ed to help the Muskie cause and

Democratic organization.
While Illinois voted, Muskie flew
to Milwaukee for quick swing of

land for a private fund-raising din-

What is really as stake, how-I
ever, is the balance of political
power in the city with the Re-
publicans standing to district
themselves into being a majority
party if their plan is accepted.
Specifically, t h e Republican
proposal would:

areas of the First Ward into the

would be to maintain andI
strengthen Republican power in
the Fourth and Fifth Wards, and
by subtracting students and add-

place the Third Ward - at pres-
ent a swing ward - solidly into
the Republican camp.
Councilman James Stephenson
(R-Fourth Ward) does not deny
that the plan would favor Re-
publican interests in the city.
Comparing the city to a wheel
and ward boundaries to spokes he
said yesterday "to redistrict you
rotate four spokes so as to divide
the wards and make them equal

kbetter when we rotate to the left."

that the party plan was a gerry-

Sheriff Douglas Harvey denied
charges yesterday that he was
negligent in allowing an alleged
rape to take place in the Wash-
tenaw County Jail last month. Six
inmates are scheduled to appear
today to finish preliminary exam-
ination on charges of Gross Inde-
cency arising from the incident.
However, Harvey did admit that
sometimes regular patrols of the
cell areas, which could have pre-

not always carried out.

STUDENTS VOTE in all-qampus elections yesterday. Voter turn-
out was unusually heavy, possibly because of the spring-like
Turnout larger than
usual' in ca-mpus, vote

Perhaps enticed by the spring-
like weather, students turned
out in numbers that pollwatch-
ers described as "heavier than
usual" to vote in the first day
of the all-campus elections yes-
Election chairman Dave Scha-
per described the voter turnout
as "greater than average" and
added that, in general, he was
pleased with most aspects of
yesterday's balloting.
However, at least one party
was not completely pleased with
the day's events, as GROUP
presidential candidate Bill Ja-
cobs filed a complaint against
Bob Black, '73, charging the
use of Jacob's name on unsign-
ed literature.
Due to space limitations in-
yesterday's paper, The Daily
was unable to print the entire
list of candidates for the
PIRGIM Board. Those deleted
yesterday were: Bonnie Jean
Fox, Jay Hack, Jamie Kaplan,
Jack Quinn, Bill Schroeder,
Garret Terberg, Steve Vagnozzi
and David De Varti.
Jacobs contends that leaflets
urging students to write in his
name for LSA council Vice Pres-
ident and that of Randall Cas-
well for Council President were

produced and distributed by
Black. Caswell is the University
student charged with starting a
fire in the General Library
Feb. 3.
When informed of these alle-
gations, Black stated that he
"disclaimed sole responsibility
for producing and distributing
the leaflets", but refused to ans-
wer questions' concerning what
role, if any, he played.
Tom Bentley, Credentials and
Rules committee chairman, said
a hearing has not been sched-
uled yet, in as much as he has
not been able to reach Black.
However, C&R is scheduled to
hear two minor cases involving
GROUP complaints against the
Student Tenant's Union Coali-
tion tomorrow night, although
there is a possibility these com-
plaints may be settled out of
Most of the candidates seem-
ed encouraged by the day's pro-
ceedings, although many ad-
mitted to the difficulty of mak-
ing any predictions as to who
would win.
Greg Kateff, Presidential can-
didate on the Responsible Alt-
ernative ticket said that, al-
though "it could go either way,
today's voting went as well as
we expected it to," adding that
"a lot of our supporters haven't
gone out to vote yet."

Gregorydescribes war fast
Comedian/politician Dick Greg-:
ory, looking gaunt and emaciated
in the eleventh month of his anti-.
war fast, told a standing-room-
only crowd of Washtenaw Com-
munity College students yesterday
he will continue to starve himself
"until the war in Vietnam is com-
pletely over."
In a strongly worded speech,
characterized by Gregory's unique
brand of humor,the 38 year old
Chicagoan told an appreciate au-
dience that young people "com-
prise the strongest power in the
world today." . ',* .
Gregory's faith in young people
was a recurrant theme in the one w
and a half hour speech, though
he also lashed out at the Nixon
administration for its stands on
school busing, the Vietnam war,
the China visit and the ITT affair.
In 1968 Gregory entered the
presidential race with a bid under

the jail.V
"Any fighting, banging, jostling
or normal conversation in the cell
would have been extremely audible
to anyone monitoring the cells,"
he said. "It is clear to me that no

ual assaults which were sentenced

Jean King, a local attorney, felt she got
a backhanded honor when she was awarded
the President's Scholarship Award of the
American Trial Lawyers Association. The
only law student in the country to be
awarded this honor in 1968, King keeps the
plaque she received on her office wall -
inscribed to Mrs. John C. King.
King is one of many women who have be-
come increasingly concerned over the fact
that in many states, married women are re-

business transactions.

While the effect this ruling will have on
future cases is unclear, many states have
laws or backlogs of legal opinion prohibit-

for office.
This view is based on the right of all
citizens to change their names informally
by common law, as long as their intent is
not fraudulent.
State law also allows all citizens the right
