Ethiopia besieged
ADDIS ABABA OP) - Secessionist guerrillas armed with
machine guns and rockets attacked military positions last night
in Asmara,stunning the provincial capital with the stiffest fight-
ing in eight days.
Some observers suggested that the assaults, which continued
for more than three hours, were the guerrillas' response to gov-
ernment rallies in Addis Ababa called to oppose independence for
Eritrea province.
RESIDENTS IN Asmara said heavy fighting erupted about
8 p.m., two hours after the curfew had cleared the city's streets
of civilians. They reported guerrilla bands with about two dozen
men in each made repeated attacks, with red tracer bullets
criss-crossing the night air.
Battles swirled around the airport, navy headquarters next
to the U. S. consulate, a hilltop artillery center and the army's
second division command post that formerly was an American
military communications base, they said.
Fighting tapered off near midnight, but civilians in the city
of 200,000 feared another wave of battles, with both the guer-
rillas and government units reinforced and preparing for a
Reports from Asmara said Ethiopian warplanes bombed
guerrilla bases again near the Red Sea port of Massawa. Relia-
ble sources said 30 insurgents surrendered in Massawa, which
has been free of guerrilla activity so far. Northern Eritrea pro-
vince offers Ethiopia its only outlet to the Red Sea, and this is
one reason the countrv's military rulers are adamantly opposed
to the 12-year struggle for independence by predominatly Mos-
lem secessionists in Eritrea.

IN A decision written by Mar-
shall, the court ruled 8 to 0 that
companies are not required to
grant vacations to returning vet-
erans under labor agreements
which make the vacations con-
ditional on having worked a
certain number of weeks in the
preceding year.
In an unanimoous decision
which will affect criminal pro-
cedures in a number of states,
the court ruled that a defendant
may not be held in jail for an
extended period without a court
hearing to review the evidence
against him.
The court agreed to review in
its term beginning next fall
cases involving a Maryland
program of state aid to private
colleges, a decision exempting
health professionals from a law
imposing stiff penalties for
illegally dispensing drugs, and
a federal appeals court ruling
allowing public access to Air
Force Academy files in honor
code actions.

administration allotted only $9
The court ruled unanimously
that administration officials,
who acted under orders from
Nixon, lacked authority to do
this under the Water Pollution
Control Act of 1972.
"As conceived and passed in
both houses, the legislation was
intended to provide firm com-
mitments of substantial sums
within a relatively limited per-
iod of time in an effort to
achieve an early solution of
what was deemed to be an ur-
gent problem," Justice Byron
White said for the court.
A spokesman for the Environ-
mental Protection Agency said
the decision would have little
practical effect. Funds can ac-
tually be spent only after they
are obligated for specific pro-
EPA already had been able
to obligate only $4 billion of the
$9 billion available before the
court's ruling.
Although a number of lower
federal courts had decided im-
poundment cases against the
administration, this was the
first one to reach the Supreme
The decision was limited to
the Water Pollution Control Act
and did not affect impound-
ments in general.
While the case was in the
courts, Congress passed legis-
lation under which the adminis-
tration now must receive con-
gressional approval before im-
pounding funds.

ROME (A) - Italy's highest'
court, crossing swords with the
Vatican, ruled yesterday thatI
abortion is legal in this Ro-1
man Catholic country if preg-
nancy threatens a woman's,
The Vatican reacted in a,
broadcast, saying: "The rulingI
is questionable and of extreme
gravity because it backs kill-'
ing of the one to be born."
THE RULING by the consti-I
tutional court, equivalent of the
U. S. Supreme Court, came
amid a massive campaign by
feminists and most political
parties for a reform of Italy's
Fascist-era abortion law.
Specifically, the court de-
clared unconstitutional Article
546 of the Italian penal code.
The law barred abortion under
any circumstance, and set a
prison term of two to five years;
for women who underwent abor-
tions, as well as for doctors,
nurses and anyone else involv-
ed in the operation.
The law was widely flouted.
This nation of 55.6 million per-
sons has 1.2 million abortions
a year, according to U. N. es-,
timates. Most of them are per-
formed outside hospitals under
crude medical conditions.

Conviction protester
OVER A THOUSAND marchers on Boston Common turned out
of Dr. Kenneth Edelin, who was convicted Saturday of mansla
during a legal abortion. Edelin was sentenced yesterday to one
viction that carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in pris
would file an appeal soon.

Most of Italy's political par-
ties favor a liberalized abortion
law. But the dominant Chris-

votes in parliament, and they
along with the Vatican, favor
the present law. It was adopted

A nationwide controversy
erupted last month when police
raided an abortion clinic in
Florence and arrested seven
persons, including a doctor,
nurses and militant abortion-
ists. These included the leader
of the Radical party, a politi-
cal group with no seats in par-
liament but credited with the
success of the divorce referen-
dum last year.
