DUBLIN - The government's plan to smash the out-
lawed Irish Republican Army (IRA) plunged the Irish Re-
public into a political crisis yesterday.
Demonstrators marched on parliament as Prime Minis-
ter Jack Lynch battled to push through legislation giving
him wide powers to crush the IRA in the South.
As Lynch spoke to parliament thousands of IRA support-
ers marched to the building through pouring rain demand-

The British government c o n-
firmed yesterday that a rocket
launcher captured from the Irish
Republican Army (IRA) Tuesday
was of Warsaw Pact design.
But Ian Gilmour, British minister
for defense, cautioned that t h e
country where the weapon w a s
made did "not necessarily" sup-
ply it to the IRA.
The launcher, which was found
in a car stopped in Londonderry,
was a seven-rocket anti-tank wea-
pon of the kind made in several
communist countries in eastern
Europe and supplied to various
forces outside eastern Europe.
IRA guerrillas fired 15 of the
rockets at 10 targets Tuesday, kil-

Strauss and Lawrence O'Brien,
former party chairman, are two of
the contenders in the race to re-
place Jean Westwood, who was
picked for the job last July by Sen.
George McGovern (D-S.D.). Since
McGovern's defeat, many party
leaders have urged Westwood to
step down and let the DNC pick her
replacement at its upcoming meet-
Last week Westwood opened the
door for such a move with a state-
ment stressing that the party, not
her political future, is most im-
portant to her.

man, has sent a letter to DNC

In her letter, Burg defends
Strauss against attacks that he is
