S \UGON-Fighting swirled to within 25 miles
of Saigon yesterday when North Vietnamese
and Provisional Revolutionary Government
(PRG) forces rolled over two more South
Vietnamese outposts along an infiltration cor-
ridor loading to the city, military sources said.
The fresh attacks followed soon after the
government's loss of a remote frontier garri-
son near the Laotian border 300 miles north of
the South Vietnamese capital. Widespread
fighting was reported up and down South Viet-
nam from Quang Tri province in the north to
the Mekong delta on the south. Military
sources said North Vietnamese forces shelled
Ben Cat, a district town 25 miles north of
Saigon, and overran two outposts to the west
and southwest of the town manned by two
companies of militiamen. By sunset the fate
of the defenders and 2,000 civilians at nearby
An Dien village was not known, the sources
DUBLIN, Ireland-Three powerful bombs
planted in parked cars exploded during yes-
terday's evening rush hour, leaving dead and
injured strewn in the streets of downtown
Dublin. Police said 25 persons were killed and
more than 100 were wounded, 83 of them
seriously, as the bombs exploded during a
20-minute period. "There were limbs and bits
of torn clothing all over the street," said one
witness. ", . . One woman lay dreadfully
mutilated. . . . I heard women and children
crying in hysterics." The fire department de-
clared the bombed parts of the city "a major
disaster area." Another bomb went off outside
a bar in Monaghan, 80 miles north of Dublin,
near the Northern Ireland border. Four per-
sons were killed and 28 wounded, most with
serious injuries, officials said.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.-A county judge yes-
terday dismissed a misdemeanor indictment

this morning
which charged Sen. Edward Gurney with
violating a state election law on campaign
contributions. Judge Charles McClure tossed
out as "fatally defective" the one-count in-
dictment against Gurney, a Republican and
member of the Senate Watergate Committee.
The judge declared the law under which
Gurney was indicted unconstitutional, and
criticized as improper and illegal advice which
was given to the grand jury by a Democratic
state representative who asked for the grand
jury probe. Gurney, 60, was indicted last
month by a Leon County grand jury on
charge of accepting campaign contributions
without naming a campaign treasurer or set-
ting up a campaign bank account. In a state-
ment issued by his Washington office, Gurney
said he knew he was "innocent when this
indictment was handed down and the court
has agreed with me."
WASHINGTON - The staff of the Federal
Trade Commission has proposed voiding wide-
spread state bans on advertising prices for
prescription drugs. A report by the commis-
sion's d r u g industry task force estimates
Americans are spending $6.4 billion a year on
prescription drugs. Competitive price adver-
tising could shave between $1.1 billion and
$10 billion off that bill over the next 10 years,
the staff said. The staff report, one phase of
a broad investigation into the drug industry,
is due for formal commission consideration
next week.
If you liked Friday's weather you'll like
today's. As the frontal system to the south of
us separating warm and cool air persists,
we'll have continued m o s t l y cloudy skies
throughout the day with scattered showers
and thundershowers developing tonight as the
front begins to move northward towards us.
Maximum temperatures today 65 to 70 with
minimums tonight 55 to 60.
