High Court throws out rule
barring testimony by spouses
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court yesterday unanimously scrapped
a long-standing rule that husbands and wives may not testify against each
other in court without the consent of both.
The court, noting that times have changed, ruled that the decision
whether to testify now lies solely with the spouse called as a witness.
But the court noted that "privately disclosed" information "between a
husband and wife in the confidence of the marital relationship" remains
protected from involuntary public disclosure.
Coumittee approves Chrysler
loan from pension fund
A state House committee unanimously approved a $75 million loan from
state pension funds yesterday for the beleaguered Chrysler Corp. The full
House is scheduled to begin debate today on the measure which is part of a
$150 million aid package.
According to the bill approved by the House Senior Citizens and
Retirement Committee, the state could borrow the money for use as a mor-
tgage on Chrysler's Trenton engine plant. State law currently prohibits the
use of pension funds for such purposes.
Soldiers watch as black
Rhodesians vote in throngs
SALISBURY, Rhodesia - Armored cars and rifle-toting soldiers
cruised this South African nation yesterday to ensure law and order as war-
weary black Rhodesians began voting for independence yesterday.
Rhodesia is Britain's last African colony.
Three million blacks are eligible to vote during the three-day parliamen-
tary elections. At one polling station, police reported 15,000 voters in a line
four miles long in mid-afternoon.
Outlook still gloomy for Tito
BELGRADE, Yugoslavia - President Josip Tito began suffering
yesterday from "more pronounced" bleeding, which may signal the ap-
proach of death for the ailing 87-year-old Yugoslav leader, according to
hospital officials.
The bleeding is almost certainly related to his kidney failure. Doctors
say he still suffers from pneumonia and increasingly erratic heart activity.
Tito's left leg.was amputated last month, and in the past week, his medical
team said he was being supported by an artificial kidney.
'All clear' given for accident
in Florida nuke plant
CRYSTAL RIVER, Fla. - An all clear was sounded yeterday in the
Crystal River nuclear power plant accident in which 43,000 gallons of
radioactive water spilled onto the floor of the plant's containmentbuilding.
Officials said the reactor would be brought to a "cold shutdown" as soon
as an exterior pump could be repaired. No radiation was released into the
atmosphere in the mishap, caused by a seven-minute instrument failure.
White hunters get 25 years

OROVILLE, Calif. - Two white men, who admitted murdering a deaf
Negro man because they found no game to kill on a drunken hunting ex-
pedition, were sentenced yesterday to the maximum 25 years to life in

looking for "dark meat."
2 former members of Peoples
Temple found shot to death
BERKELEY, Calif. - Two former members of the People's Temple cult
who turned against the Rev. Jim Jones were shot to death in their home
Tuesday night, and yesterday police said they were investigating the
possibility they were victims of a "hit squad."
The victims, Al Mills, 52, and his wife, Jeannie, 40, once leaders in the
Jones cult, had said they were "first on the list" of enemies marked for
assassination by Jones. The killers also shot Mills' 16-year-old daughter, who
is in critical condition.
