PRESIDENT NIXON signed into law the Drug Abuse Office
and Treatment Act of 1972 yesterday, declaring that if "petty
bureaucrats fail to cooperate with the program, "heads will roll."
Nixon said visiting Turkish Prime Minister Nihat Erim commit-
ted his government to stopping the growth of the opium poppy and to
combatting drug smuggling.
However, Dr. Roger Egeberg, an administration health policy
adviser, criticized the President's statement, saying "we've got to
start to focus on the man rather than on the agent that addicts him."

A WITNESS at the Harrisburg trial testified yesterday that
Sister Elizabeth McAlister once said she was planning "some-
thing criminal, not civil disobedience" and "would be liable for a
prison sentence."
Carolyn North said the nun made the remark at a women's peace
rally in mid-June, 1970, but was unable to identify Sister Elizabeth
in the courtroom.
THE CAMBODIAN CAPITAL of Phnom Penh was reported
last night to have received a series of coordinated attacks by
Communist troops.
President Lon Nol of Cambodia called the attack unprecedented
and said he believed it was a Communist conspiracy to create public
havoc during a politically difficult period in Cambodia.j
Officials estimated that 75 persons were killed and more than
100 wounded.
SECRETARY OF STATE William Rogers said yesterday 1
that President Nixon plans to assure Soviets when he visits
Moscow that improved relations between the United States and
China is not an anti-Soviet move.
Rogers' remarks came as a reply to a speech by Soviet Com-
munist party leader Leonid Brezhnev in which he expressed concern
about Nixon's China talks.
DEMOCRATIC SENATORS denounced the value-added tax
yesterday and introduced a tax-reform bill aimed at raising $16
billion in new revenue in 1973. -
The value-added tax system imposes a tax on the added value
of any product or service at each stage of production and distribu-
tion. Sen. Edward Kennedy said the tax "would be nothing more
than a national sales tax piled on top of countless state and local
taxes."
Sen. Hubert Humphrey (D-Minn.), another sponsor of the tax-
reform plan, said it would "go directly after the oil depletion allow-=
ance and the tax shelters of the estates of millionaires."
GREEK PREMIER George Papadopoulos took on the postj
of the crown regent yesterday as the Greek military junta
further extended its power.
The junta dismissed crown regent George Zoitakis, who assumedt
the position after an unsuccessful overthrow attempt caused King
Constantine to flee to Rome in December 1967.
ENVIRONMENT GROUPS have won a federal court injunc-
tion requiring environmental-impact study on a government-
aided stream-channelization project.
The decision, a major test case that could affect hundreds of
projects, requires that a study be submitted within 30 days.
Stream channelization is a widespread practice to widen, deepenI
or straighten stream'beds for better control of water flow. Environ-
mental groups have argued that it can damage or destroy fish popu-
lations and plant life.

WASHINGTON {} - The Senate yesterday refused to
exempt women from the draft in working on a proposed con-
stitutional amendment guaranteeing women equal rights.
The vote was 73 to 18 in the first Senate floor action on
the constitutional amendment already passed by the House.
"I believe if women want equal rights they should have
them all the way," said Sen. Charles Percy (R-Ill.).
In effect, senators declined the advice of the Armed
Services Committee chairman, Sen. John Stennis (D-Miss.),
who said the women's rights--

High Court upsets
voter residency law

WASHINGTON ('-The Su-
preme Court yesterday opened
the way to the ballot box for
3 to 5.5 million Americans when
it struck down Tennessee's one-
year-residency rule and implied
anything beyond 30 days may be
unconstitutional.
Lengthy waiting -periods are
unnecessary to guard against
fraud at the ballot box, and they
pose an unconstitutional barrier
to travel. Justice Thurgood Mar-
shall said for a 6-1 court. All
but a handful of states, includ-
ing Michigan, now require at
least six-months' residency.
Marshall added there is no
reason to suppose that a new
resident has less knowledge of

election issues than old resi-
dents and observed "obviously
many longtime residents do not
have any." Chief Justice War-
ren Burger stood alone in the
dissent.
The decision climaxes the fil-
ing of waves of lawsuits across
the country aimed at laws which
some estimate bar up to eight
per cent of otherwise qualified
voters from filing every year.
Marshall said even a three-
month rule is too long and that
30 days "appears to be an ample
period of time for the state to
complete whatever administra-

Cost council
investig.ates
large firms
WASHINGTON () - The Cost
of Living Council has asked the
Internal Revenue Service to look
for possible price violations by 17
large firms that have failed to file
required reports with the govern-
ment.
At the same time, government
officials said yesterday that 13
large merchants reduced prices
voluntarily after violations were
found earlier during a similar in-
vestigation. They include the S.S.
Kresge retail chain and the dis-
tributor for Yamaha motorcycles.
The moves are part of what of-
ficials say is a continually esca-
lating attempt to enforce wage
and price controls strictly and to
reinforce voluntary compliance.
The 17 newly investigated firms,
which officials declined to name,
are mostly large manufacturers.
None has sought permission for
price increases and all are appar-
ently late in filing required quar-
terly reports with the Price Com-
mission.
Price Commission officials dis-
closed two days ago that surveys
show as many as ten per cent of
large manufacturers and mer-
chants may have violated price
controls.
