collapse. The crisis, which held passers-by spell-

port beam failed to hold its weight, causing the
entire structure to creak and groan. Workers were
evacuated from the building, which formerly hous-

Two crude listening devices were discovered
Tuesday in the Atlanta office of George Wallace's

at first blamed Jimmy Carter or a Carter sup-
porter but later backed off that allegation. Be-
fore his denial, Ned Moore said "I don't see
Morris Udall or Fred Harris or those guys bug-
ging us ... what does that leave? Either Carter
or a Carter supporter." Wallace told reporters
in Montgomery, Ala. that "there is no need to
make implications. I don't know what you learn
by bugging anyone's headquarters anyway except
maybe some salty language." Carter was not
available for comment.

GMans hair

Ford strong despite
Reagan's N.C. win

Gusty wind played havoc with this woman's hair yesterday as nature tried its best to hinder
students' progress to classes.

By AP and Reuter
WASHINGTON - Victory in
North Carolina is a shot of ad-
renalin for Ronald Reagan's
White House challenge, but poli-
tical arithmetic shows it will be
difficult for even his optimistic
projections in smaller states to
outweigh President Ford's dom-
ination of the larger ones.
Meanwhile, the Senate passed
a bill yesterday to restructure
the Federal Election Commis-
sion (FEC) and make other
changes in the 1974 campaign
finance law.
Passage of the measure, a
compromise fashioned by lead-
ers of both parties, ended the
stalemate that had threatened
to keep the Senate snarled in
ON THE Democratic side, in
Tuesday's contest, Jimmy Car-
ter won his fifth primary in six
tries. His 3-to-2 margin over
George Wallace further damp-
ened the Alabama governor's
chances of doing anything more
at the Democratic National Con-
vention ,than using a core of
delegates in an attempt to in-
flnence party policy.
For Reagan, the 52 per cent
victory was a needed boost both
psychologically and for his
fund-raisers. After last week's
thumping at the hands of Ford
in Illinois, a number of Re-
publican officials had started
to exert pressure on Reagan to
quit the race in order to aid
Republican chances in Novem-
Now Reagan can push on to
the Texas primary May 1 and
other delegate selection events
he claims will put him in posi-
tion to win the nomination in
psychological and arithmetical
victory is well illustrated by
North Carolina. Reagan won
only three delegates more than
Ford, 28 to 25. That leftdthe
President still in over-all dele-
gate command 206 to 81, with
52 others uncommitted.
The FEC legislation, approv-
ed 55 to 28, now goes to the

House, where no action is in
prospect before next week.
One last-minute addition to
the Senate bill was a sweeping
financial disclosure provision
adopted 76 to 13, applying to
Congress members and all oth-
er top federal officials.
C O N G R E S S already
has missed a March 22 deadline
set by the Supreme Court for
restructuringthe FEC, created
to enforce and administer the
1974 law. As a result the com-
mission lost its key powers, in-

funds to help presidential can-
didates finance their primary

By AP and Reuter
(kl) - The military junta that
ousted President Isabel Peron
in a bloodless coup began yes-
terday the gargantuan task of
imposing order on this chaotic
nation. Troops moved swiftly-
with occasional gunfire-against
traces ofP eronism and left-
wing political groups.
Peron was believed flown to
a resort-like air force compound
in the interior. Reliable sources
in Madrid said the Spanish gov-
ernment had been unofficially
informed that she might travel
to Spain this weekend.
COMMANDERS of the three
armed forces set up an austere
military government, ordered
an end to political and labor
activity and said they would at-
tack Argentina's political vio-
lence and economic woes.
The junta led by Gen. Jorge
Videla, moralistic 50-year-old
army chief, also said it would
reorganize the country for an
eventual return to "republican
democracy" and would align
Argentina within "the Western
and Christian world."
Argentina's official radio net-
work said the junta would ap-
point a president after it imple-
mented its changes. Military
sources said the juntaiwould
name Videla president but gave
no indication when this would
be done.
would control areas essential to
security and national develop-
ment and would "ensure foreign
capital the conditions it re-
quires, without interference."
However, the poor perform-
ance of the military during the
many years it ruled Argentina
before the late Juan Peron re-

turned to power in 1973 made
it doubtful Videla and his col-
leagues could solve the economic
problems. The military also had
some trouble with guerrillas
when ittruled before, and partly
for these reasons was slow to
end the 21-month rule of Peron's.
There was no immediate sign
of activity by leftwing guerril-
las who lost at least 11 dead in
a major battle with security
forces in La Plata, 38 miles
south of here, on the eve of the
THE COUP left only Venezue-
la and Colombia with civilian
governments in South America's
major nations.
By contrast to the last pre-
vious South American coup, the
bloody overthrow of Salvador

Allende in Chile in 1973, the
Argentina overthrow was done
with finesse and apparently
little violence.
But unconfirmed reports said
troops made mass arrests in the
pre-dawn hours, detaining a
number of government and la-
bor figures.
THE COUP followed weeks of
rumors that a military take-
over was imminent because of
widespread political and eco-
nomic chaos and growing po-
litical violence.
The hemisphere's first woman
president w a s arrested and
flown to the interior just after
midnight yesterday and within
hours the military dissolved
congress and took over muni-
cipal governments and main la-
bor movements.

Expert not surprised
bycoup in Argentina
The deposing of President Isabel Peron by the Argentine
military came as no surprise to University political observers,
according to Time magazine's former Argentine bureau chief, Prof.
Charles Eisendrath.
"Isabel Peron was at one time a Cabaret dancer, she was
completely ill prepared and unequipped for any role in politics,"
said Eisendrath in an interview yesterday.
EISENDRATH was blunt in stating that Peron's main quali-
fication for the presidency was her late husband's fame. The
name of the charismatic Argentine leader, Juan Peron is well
remembered there, even today.
Peron's executive incompetency had become all too apparent
in recent months, Eisendrath said, as the country's inflation rate
