MIAMI (AP) - The National Guard
was activated and police enforced a 9
p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew in part of Miami's
Liberty City area "to restore order to
the streets" yesterday in the third day
of violence in this racially torn city.
Early in the day, masked black
youths armed with knives and a gun
commandeered a school bus on its way
to pick up students, and two women
were wounded in separate shootings.

COUNTY MANAGER Merrett
Stierheim declared a state of emergen-
cy and set the curfew in the James E.
Scott housing project in the largely
black Liberty City district.
Gov. Bob Graham's office announced
that 400 Guardsmen were placed on
ready reserve in Miami-area armories
and that 50 Florida Highway Patrol
troops also were put on alert in the city.
Stierheim's state of emergency con-
ditions included establishment of police
barricades around the area to prevent
nonresidents from entering and bans on
sale and public display of firearms, sale
of gasoline except directly into a gas
tank and the carrying of alcoholic
beverages in public places.
"WE'RE TRYING to restore order to
the streets," Robert Dempsey, acting
director of the Dade County Public
Safety Department, announced at a
news conference with Stierheim.
"Right now that area is under the
control of criminal elements, people
with guns," he said. "This will give us a
tool to go after the criminals and take
their firearms away."
The curfew will last at least three
nights, but could be extended further,
Dempsey said.
DEMPSEY SAID officers would
arrest anyone on the streets in the
restricted area without "good reason."
The predicted day-long rain that
police had hoped would calm tensions
didn't last past noon.
Violence in the Liberty City neigh-
borhood, scene of rioting in May in
which 18 people were killed, erupted
Tuesday after the shooting of a white
officer who was pursuing two black
robbery suspects. "We chased them in
the project area," said wounded officer
Sgt. Fred Pelny. "They fought us. They
started hollering to the crowd and the
crowd started coming and they started
shbotingat6s."
