Ethiopian leaders ask U.S.
for additional military aid

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (M)
- Ethiopia's military leaders
have asked the United States
for up to $30 million in ammu-
nition to fight secessionist guer-
rillas in Eritrea province, relia-
ble Ethiopian sources said yes-
terday.
Theemergency airlift sought
by the leaders would replace
rifledand machine-gun bullets
already used in combating the
Arab - backed guerrillas, the
sources said.
THE DOLLAR value of the re-
quest is a third greater than all
U. S. military aid and sales to
Ethiopia in 1974.
The U. S. government put its
aid program under review and,
in effect, suspended it last No-
vember after the military coun-
cil shot 60 former government
leaders without trial. Those
killed included the military
chairman, Gen. Aman Andom.

The sources said the United
States faced a difficult choice:
supply. the ammunition and be-
come involved against Arab
states with whom it seeks a
Middle East settlement, or not
supply the ammunition and riskI
a break in relations with Ethio-
pia.
THE SOURCES said the
United States has not replied to
the request, which was made
last week. Both U. S. and
Ethiopian officials in Addis
Ababa declined to comment,
and there was no immediate
reaction from the Pentagon.
On the fighting front, uncon-
firmed reports said government
troops killed 700 out of 1,000
prisoners Friday shortly after
they staged successful, guer-
rilla - aided breakouts at two
Eritrean jails.
The reports said paratroop-
ers caught up with the fleeing
prisoners north of Asmara, the

Eritrean capital. Another ver-
sion said Eritreans among the
escapees gunned down non-Eri-
treans in the group, and were
in turn shot by government
forces.
ETHIOPIAN SOURCES.
said the secessionist guerrillas
are being reinforced with men
and artillery before an expected
resumption of their assault on
Asmara, 450 miles north of Ad-
dis Ababa.
The sources said the guerril-
las were obtaining for the first
time through a clandestine sup-
ply route from Sudan artillery
to counter heavy guns of the 2nd
Army Division in Asmara. They
said the guerrillas camped
around the city were being in-
creased to 7,500 men from
6,000.

gress takes.
THE JOBLESS RATE hit a
post-World War II peak of 8.2
per cent in January, with 7.5
million workers unable to find
jobs.
"I'm very pessimistic about
the whole situation," Meany
said. He added: "We're get-
ting into the vicious cycle we
had during the days of the
Great Depression."
Workers are beginning to ex-
haust their unemployment in-
surance benefits and once that
hap pens, he warned, they no
longer will able to make con-
sumer purchases or pay off
their mortgages.
"WE NEED JOBS," the head1
of the 13 million - member la-
bor federation said. He urged
the Ford administration to re-
lease impounded funds and
provide for government - fund-
ed housing with a return to 6
per cent mortgage interest
rates. Meany said this would
revive the housing industry.
He also said a moratorium
may be needed on mortgage
payments to help the unem-
ployed, noting that in Califor-
nia alone foreclosures are pend-
ing against 3,000 homeowners.
Meany's news conference fol-
lowed the start of the winter
meeting of the AFL-CIO's poli-
cy - making executive council.
AMONG A NUMBER of reso-
lutions adopted by the council
was one calling for reform of
the unemployment compensa-
tion system.

Convicted obstetrician
advocates abortions

BOSTON (P) - Dr. Kenneth
Edelin, the Boston obstetrician
convicted of manslaughter dur-
ing a legal abortion, said yes-
terday he will continue to per-
form abortions if permitted to
do so.
"I have not done anything
which was illegal," Edelin said.
'I will continue to do abortions.
They are a woman's right and
it is better if they are done in
a hospital setting by someone
who is trained."
ONE OF EDELIN'S attor-
neys, Frank Susman of St.
Louis, said meanwhile the doc-
tor's appeal to the Massachu-
setts Supreme Court will ar-
gue that evidence did not sup-
port the verdict.
Susman said racism and the
alleged use of racial slurs by
jurors also will be part of the
appeal. He said the fact that
Edelin is black may have been
a major factor in the verdict
by the all-white jury.
Edelin was convicted Satur-
day in Suffolk Superior Court
after a six-week trial. He was
accused of killing a 20-to-24-
week-old fetus during a legal
abortion at a Boston City hos-
pital.

SUSMAN S A I D. testimony
showed Edelin was acting with-
in guidelines set by the U. S.
Supreme Court two years ago
when it permitted abortion in
the first six months of preg-
nancy.
An alternate juror, Michael
Ciano, 32, of East Boston, said
in interviews that racial slurs,
such as "the nigger is guilty
as sin," were made through-
out the trial by members of the
jury in the privacy of the jury
room.
John Kelly, who said he was
the lone holdout juror against
convicting Edelin at the be-
ginning of deliberations, said
t h e r e was "some small
amount" of racial epithets
heard among the jurors.
"BUT NOT IN any way con-
nected with Dr. Edelin or any
of the issues of the trial," Kelly
said. "I cannot answer for them
unconsciously, but consciously
I do not believe that race
played a part."
Edelin said his medical fu-
ture is up to the state Board
of Registration in Medicine and
officials at his hospital.
Dr. Bancroft Wheeler, the reg-
istration board chairman, said'
it is too early to say when the
- - - - - - -- --A ~A~ ~ I

board will consider the Edelin
case.
"THE BOARD MAY wait un-
til the appeal is carried out,"
he said. Francis Guiney, exec-
utive director of the city Health
a n d Hospitals Department
which runs the hospital in
which the abortion was per-
formed, said trustees would re-
view the Edelinscase "in the
immediate future" to decide the
doctor's position at the hospital.
Physicians and other leaders
in, the medical field argued,
weanwhile,dthe verdict may
have been guided by emotion
and said it should not scare doc-
tors away from performing
abortions in the future.
But right-to-life groups de-
clared it a victory for those who
respect "the dignity of human
life" and said doctors must be
more careful in the future.
