AWACS
foe sees
no vote
WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen. Alan
Cranston (D-Calif.) counting 53
senators in his camp, predicted yester-
day opponents of the sale of AWAC-
S radar planes to Saudi Arabia will
score a "narow victory" over President
Reagan.
Cranston assistant Democratic
0 leader in the Senate, pointed to the
overwhelming 301-111 House vote
against the sale last Wednesday and the
9-8 resection by the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee on Thursday.
"I EXPECT we will repeat that
narrow victory when the issue comes
up for a vote on the Senate floor," said
Cranston, who is considered one of the
Senate's best vote-counters.
"We will end up with more than 53
votes" when the conclusive tally on the
$8.5 billion military hardware package
taken in about 10 days, he predicted.
Cranston, a leading foe of the deal,
said he counts 53 senators committed to
vote against or "strongly leaning in
that direction." In remarks prepared
for delivery to the American Jewish
Congress in Dallas, he said another 40
senators favor or are leaning toward
~the sale.

LONDON (AP) - The Irish
Republican Army struck in London for
the second time in a week yesterday with
a car bombing that maimed the com-
'mandant of the British marines, Lt.
Gen. Sir Steuart Bringle, a former
commando leader in Northern Ireland.
The blast ripped the roof off his car and
sent the hood flying over a house.
Pringle, 53, was rushed to King's
College Hospital, where surgeons am-
putated his right leg below the knee.
Doctors said they hoped to save his left
leg, which also was torn. The general's
dog also was in the car, but escaped
unharmed.
IN NORTHERN Ireland, a stolen car
booby-trapped with a bomb exploded in
the parking lot of a golf course, slightly
injuring one man, police said. No group
immediately claimed responsibility for
that explosion.
. The outlawed IRA claimed respon-
sibility for the Pringle car bombing in a
statement issued to news organizations
by its publicity bureau in Dublin,
Ireland.
Scotland Yard had warned of the
possibility of a new IRA bombing cam-
paign after the group's nail-bomb at-
tack last Saturday on a busload of Irish
Guards in London. Two people were
killed and 37 others injured in that at-
tack.'
_ "EVERYONE SHOULD be careful,
not just those whose virtue of their
positions may be attacked," Prime
Minister Margaret Thatcher said
"yesterday after learning of the Pringle
car-bombing. "This will help break the
-threat and catch the perpetrators of
these dreadful crimes."

Labrador retriever from his home in
West Dulwich, a middle-class residen-
tial area of south 'London, a Scotland
Yard official said.
The impact of the explosion sent
Pringle's car crashing into a parked
car. The roof of the Volkswagen was
torn off and its windows were blown
out.
'The whole front of the car was in
pieces," said Clifford Collins, who
operates a nearby furniture store.
