Navy announces plans to have 4 . .
women sailors on warships

WASHINGTON R ) - The Navy
announced orders yesterday wid-
ening opportunities for women
and opening the way for eventual
use of co-ed crews aboard U.S.
warships.
Shattering nearly 200 years of
tradition, Adm. Elmo Zumwalt
Jr., said once the 27th Constitu-
tional Amendment granting wo-
men equal rights is ratified,
there is no reason why women

sailors - WAVEs - couldn't
serve at sea, become aviators or
attend the Navy Academy in
Annapolis.
The Amendment, now being
considered 'by the states, "will
in my judgment lead to a situa-
tion in which it will at some time
be legal" to' assign women to
combat jobs, said the chief of
naval operations.
The admiral's orders opening

positions on Navy ships to women
goes a step further than the
Army which announced Monday
that it was doubling the size of
the Women's Army Corps and
opening all except combat jobs
to WACs.
In a four-page message to all
ships and stations, Zumwalt cal-
led the assignment of women
aboard warships "the ultimate
goal" that will be timed to coin-
cide with implementation of the
new legislation.
Some naval officers at t h e
Pentagon greeted the announce-
ment with skepticism. "It will
take a battalion of Marines to
protect them," said one o 1 d
salt.
At a news conference, Zumwalt
acknowledged "There will be
some who are concerned. B u t
when you look at the level to
which our society has developed
there is no reason in theory, in
sociology or in equity why women
shuld not have the same oppor-
tunities the men have."
To pave the way for sending
women to sea, Zumwalt said- a
number of women officers and
enlisted ratings are being as-
signed to the hospital ship Sanc-
tuary as a pilot program.
In the past, Navy nurses but
not WAVEs have served aboard
hospital ships. Federal laws now
bars women from duty aboard
combat vessels.
The admiral said also s o me
women would begin training as
aviators- in search-and-rescue
helicopters and air transports.
He drew the line at fighter pilots,
however.
Zumwalt instructed the Navy
also to open midshipman pro-
grams to women at all colleges
offering NROTC, and to open op-
portunities for promotion of wo-
men to admiral.

WASHINGTON (A)-The Sen-
ate sent the no-fault auto in-
surance bill back to a committee
last night, and supporters of
the measure predicted it would
kill the measure for this session
of Congress.
The vote was 49 to 46 in favor
of the motion of Sen. Roman
Hruska (R-Neb.) to send the
bill drafted by the Commerce
Committee to the Judiciary
Committee.
It was the first floor test on
a measure which would revolu-
tionize the way insurance ap-

plies to 100 million car owners.
Car insurance, said Commerce
Chairman Sen. Warren Magnu-
son (D-Wash.) "is bordering on
a national scandal. The pre-
miums are going up and the
payments to accident victims
are going down. We're trying to
do something about it."
Hruska and Sens. Sam Ervin
D-N.C.), Howard Baker (R-
Tenn.), Marlow Cook (R-Ky.)
and Strom Thurmond (R-S.C.)
all argued that serious consti-
tutional and Senate procedural
questions were involved and
that the idea needed more
study,
Near the ezid of the debate,
Magnuson said, "Everybody
knows what this motion is all
about. It buries the bill, simple
as that,"
Ervin said a majority vote of
the Senate, however, could get
the bill back from the Judiciary
Committee.
The administration has said
that no-fault insurance is a
matter for the states and that
the bill had wide-ranging re-
percussions for the federal court
system
Bar charges
divorce firms
DETROIT (P) - The S t a t e
Bar of Michigan has threatened
to close two firms which seI1
fill-in-the-blank divorce forms to
couples who want to avoid hiring
lawyers and to represent them-
selves instead - a constitutional
privilege.
The firms, Harry Gordon As-
sociates, and Gordon, Grahm &
Cramer Associates, claim they
are setting non-legal advice and
court forms, but they are charg-
ed with practicing law without
a license.
The firms, which have handled
about 400 divorces, started after
Michigan no-fault divorce 1 a w
went into effect last spring. The
firms' owners say the Bar is
against them because of their
cut- rate prices.
