BELFAST -- Protestant vigilantes claimed British soldiers
battling Belfast street mobs shot and killed three teen-age boys
last night and that a British armored car crushed the head of
a 10-year-old youngster. The bloody rioting in Northern Ireland's
capital exploded after British soldiers elsewhere shot down two
Irish gunmen and wounded another at a roadblock near a sleepy
Abrams to Vietnam
WASHINGTON-Gen. Creighton Abrams took command of
the Army yesterday and was immediately ordered to Vietnam
for a firsthand assessment of the war. Shortly after swearing
in Abrams as Army Chief of Staff, Secretary of Defense Melvin
Laird said Abrams will leave tonight for Saigon "to make an
on-the-scene evaluation of Vietnamization progress." A Penta-
gon spokesman would not comment when asked if the trip had
anything to do with the peace talks.
Nixon says no amnesty
WASHINGTON-President Nixon has pledged to families of
men missing and prisoners of war in Vietnam that he will not
grant amnesty to draft dodgers and desprters, who will have
to "pay a price for their choice." Making an unexpected ap-
pearance yesterday at the annual convention of the National
League of Families of POWs-MIAs, the President said he has
been criticized by some "as being lacking in compassion" on
the amnesty issue. "When thousands of Americans died for their
choice and hundreds are now POWs or missing in action for
their choice, it would be the most immoral thing I could think
of to give amnesty to draft dodgers and those who deserted,"
GARY, Ind.-A special federal grand jury impaneled yester-
day in Hammond was assigned to investigate illegal drug traffic
in the Gary-Hammond region and a related gang war that has
left 22 persons dead since January. The -war has been waged
between a street gang called "The Family" and the pushers
of the drug market in Gary, Indiana's third largest city. Organ-
ized crime has been indirectly involved, police detectives say,
as the source of heroin and other drugs distributed by the city
pushers. Chicago, New York and Detroit have been mentioned
as source cities. "The syndicate always has run a decentralized
operation in Gary and East)Chicago," one city official said. "The
pushers here buy from the syndicate but aren't with the Mafia,
obviously, because they're all black."

The Credentials and Rules Com-
mittee (C&R) for the fall elections
met well into the night to discuss'
the possible deletion of the Re-
sponsible Alternative Party (RAP)
name from the election ballot.
The hearing resulted from in-
cumbent S t u d e n t Government
Council (SGC) candidate Curt
Steinhauer's claim to the RAP
name. Insurgent RAP members
have disputed Steinhauer's right
to the party name.
Election Director Victor Gut-
man denied Steinhauer's claim to
the title after receiving a letter
from RAP secretary Bill Kre-
baum listing present candidates
on the SGC slate to include only
Mat Dunaskiss, Debbie Allen and
Steinhauer demanded the right
to use the RAP name, and that
the party had no right to oust
At midnight, it was unclearj
whether the RAP name would beF
used by any of the candidates
presently on the ballot.
Another party in jeopardy of
losing its slate name is the much-
publicized, one-man Bullshit Par-
Chairperson Dave Hornstein was
denied injunctive relief during a
Central Student Judiciary (CSJ)
hearing scheduled to determine
whether he had received sufficient
notice of the election code ruling
barring one-member parties.

the SAFEGUARD ticket, as a pre-

bound to follow the mistakes of
my predecessor," and said the re-

injunctive relief, which would re-

be added to the ballot.

Through his rice paddies
And the farmer
Started hitting the lead track
With a rake
He wouldn't stop
The TC went to talk to him
And the farmer
Tried to hit him too
So the tracks went sideways
