capital
SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican
Republic, (Reuters) - Tanks and
armored cars moved into the cap-
ital of the Dominican Republic yes-
terday in the strongest show of
force since the government report-
ed that a small group of guerril-
las landed on thesoutherncoast
Sunday.
President Joaquin Balaguer al-I
leged that the landing was a diver-j
sionary movement to draw troops
away from the capital, where he
said an uprising had been planned.
According to military reports,
three soldiers and one guerrilla
were killed in clashes near the
landing area Monday.
Tanks were positioned in key
areas around the city yesterday
while strong forces of police and
troops in trucks and armored car-
riers patrolled downtown streets.
Balaguer said in a televised
speech that the guerrilla party to-
taled 10 men. Two in civilian
clothes were believed to have slip-
ped into Santo Domingo. The eightf
others, in olive green uniforms,
moved into a mountain area, where
they were, being hunted by troops,
he said.
He said the guerrillas were "sin-
gularly experienced men, trained
in Cuba and other communist
countries."
Balaguer repeatedsthat former
President Juan Bosch, who was
ousted by the armed forces in Sep-
tember 1963, was involved in the
guerrilla plot.
Bosch, hunted bypolice since
the reported landing, has denied
this in statements smuggled to
newspapers..

proval. ERA needs passage by 38
states to become law. About a half
dozen states have rejected the pro-
posal, it is pending in the rest.
The language of the proposed
amendment is simple: "Equality
of rights under the law shall not
be denied or abridged by the Unit-
ed States or by any state on ac-
count of sex."
The issues it has raised, how-
ever, have been complex and of-
ten controversial. Opponents claim
the amendment would create chaos
in the nation's legal system and
would result in women being draft-
ed - an argument rendered moot
by the recent end of the draft.
Montana State Sen. John Mc-
Donald, an opponent of the meas-
ure, argued during debate: "If
Jesus wanted people to be equal,
he would have had six men and six
women apostles." ,
The amendment was passed by
the Montana House of Representa-
tives, killed by the Senate, revived
on a technicality and tabled. Pas-
sage this session is considered un-
likely.
A house committee in Georgia
held hearings on the amendment
on Wednesday. Martha Gaines of
Atlanta, representing the Georgia
branch of the National Organiza-
tion of Women, claimed that op-
ponents of the amendment were
"playing on fears."
"They're saying that it would
render impossible sexual privacy
and that it would do away with
separate public toilets," she tes-
tified. "This is simply not so. This
is a smokescreen."

stalled:
Idaho and Nebraska are con-
sidering rescinding ratification.
The Idaho House Judiciary and
Rules Committee held its firstj
hearing on the resolution' Monday
and will decide today whether to
hold another one. Nebraska legis-
lators have not yet fixed a date for
a public hearing.
The Connecticut House of Rep-
resentatives rejected the amend-
ment by an 83-77 vote last April,
but House Speaker Francis Collins
predicts it will pass this year. Rep.
Audrey Beck, a Democrat who is
leading the drive for approval,
said the measure failed last year
because of a "lack of information"x
about its seriousness.
Opponents contended the bill
would deprive women of certain
existing rights - exemption from
the draft and support from a hus-
band. Proponents argued the
amendment would simply recog-
nize women "as people."
Oklahoma legislators defeated
the measure twice - last year and
again last week. Rep Jan Turner
was one of its strongest oppon-
ents. "'Idon't needtan amendment
to tell me I'm a human being,"
Turner said.
The 24 states that had ratified
the amendment in addition to Min-
nesota and Oregon are: Hawaii,
New Hampshire, Nebraska, Iowa,
Idaho, Delaware, Kansas, Texas,
Maryland, Tennessee, Alaska,
Rhode Island, New Jersey, Wiscon-
sin, Colorado, West Virginia, New
York, Mighigan, Kentucky, Massa-
chusetts, Pennsylvania, California,
South Dakota and Wyoming.

This is going to sound
incredible to you, but here goes:
EPI has found a way to
produce a big, deep bass sound
in a loudspeaker that requires
only 4 to 5 watts RMS per chan-
nel and costs less than $60.
You're shaking your head.
"How could they possibly... ?"
We did it by eliminating
the most expensive part of a
speaker: the woofer. And
replacing it with a patented
process, a remarkable tech-
nique for producing tight,
accurate bass response down to
below 50hz: the "Organ Pipe
Principle."
Revolutionary is not too
strong a word for EPI's new

ers, this deceptively simple new
kind of speaker uses two full-
range 4 /"drivers to produce
high and mid-range frequencies.
Now, here's where the
Organ Pipe Principle comes in:
When an organ pipe is
excited by a small flow of air, it
radiates sound in all directions.
In much the same way,
EPI's MicroTower takes the

amplifies those vibrations to the
proper level, over three octaves
of bass response, within the
speaker cabinet itself!
What this remarkable
breakthrough means to the
quality of the sound is some-
thing remarkable, too:
EPI's MicroTower pro-
duces truly omnidirectional
sound, or what we prefer to call
"Spherical Sound." This means
that the MicroTower radiates
sound almost equally in all
directions, at all frequencies .
