Supreme Court backs

WASHINGTON (P) - Adminis-
tration plans to open the Atlan-
tic to oil drilling cleared a
major stumbling block yester-
day when the Supreme Court
upheld federal ownership of the
offshore rEsources.
A unanimous court rejected
the claim of coastal states that
colonial charters granted by
the English and Dutch gave
them domain over a 100-mile-
wide belt of the Atlantic off
their coasts.
THE COURT ruled separate-
ly against efforts by Louisiana
and Texas to claim offshore
areas beyond a boundary drawn
by a special Supreme Court
master. Both contended the
boundary ignored their histori-
cal control over offshore areas
awarded the government.
An Interior Department



spokesman said the Atlantic
ruling freed the department to
ask oil companies to recom-
mend areas for leasing, a pre-
liminary step in the leasing
"1 don't think we'll rush out
tomorrow to do that, but we
should be able to do it soon,"
said the spokesman.
for the recommendations last
month, but Secretary Rogers
Morton rescinded the invitation
when reminded of an -earlier
promise to make no such move
before the court's ru3ing.
Morton said he was pleased
by the ruling and assured coas-
tal governors "we will continue
our policy of early and frequent
discussion with them as we pro-
ceed toward the development
of this precious resource."

Maine Gov. James Longley
said he was disappointed by the
ruling and hopedthe court,
based its decision on "more!
valid information" than the'
Ford administration presented
in its arguments.
At issue in the case were ad-
ministration plans to accelerate
offshore leasing as a key part
of its program to reduce the
nation's dependency upon for-
eign oil.
The administration intends to
lease 10 million acres during
the next year, including three
and one-half million tcres off
the Atlantic Coast.
Geologists estimate there are
20 billion barrels of oil under
the Middle Atlantic, an area
that has been closed to oil ex-

NEW YORK (P) - Some 3,000
doctors went on strike yesterday
for shorter hours in the f i r - t
major walkout of men in white
in the nation's history.
Twenty-three of the city's 72
private and municipal hospitals
were targets of the 7 a.m. walk-
AN ESTIMATED 24,000 pa-
tients are under daily treatment
in the beds, outpatients clinics
and emergency rooms of t n e
struck institutions. But a spokes-
man for the League of Volun-
tary Hospitals declared:
"We will be able to provide
full and uninterrupted service.
We do not expect to turn anyone
In addition, Dr. Richard Knut-
son, head of the striking Com-
mittee of Interns and Residents,
pledged the union to take care
of emergencies in any hospital
where there was a shortage of,
physicians and surgeons. Z
THE UNION sought a cvtopck
to 80 hours in weekly schedules
which it claimed now keeps in-
terns and residents on duty up
to 110 hours, with uninterrupted
stretches of as long as 56 hours.
Knutson told a news confer-
ence that a doctor Jag-ti-ed
from too many hours wihout
rest poses a greater threat to
the well-being of patients than
the strike would.
The union leader added thatj
the strikers are prepared to ac-
cept binding arbitration a a d
added: "As soon as that comes,
the strike will end."
HOWEVER, the league term-
