made it clear that if patients are
admitted tp University Hospital,
"it will entail additional expense
to the Health Service budget. .

WARSAW, Poland () - Com-
bined forces of Polish Red police,
security troops and militia men
from workers ranks fought down
a new student uprising for freedom
here last night.
The students, still apparently
unta'med, taunted the antiriot
forces with shouts of: "Gestapo,

gas and noise bombs as the vio-

Wi7est Delays
The Western Powers yesterday
held back a resolution endorsing
their disarmament proposals so
they could get the broadest pos-
sible bacing before submitting it
to the UN General Assembly. d
Some informed diplomats had
predicted it would be handed in
here yesterday. But a United States
source told a reporter it would be
delayed till Monday at the earliest
to give a few prospective sponsors
time to get instructions from home
enabling them to sign it.
He said it would have "in the
neighborhood of 20" sponsors cov-
ering a wide geographical range.
That would constitute almost a
quarter of the '82 delegations sit-
ting in the Assembly. But the reso-
lution would need a two-thirds
vote for final passage.
India, Japan and the Soviet
Union have in rival resolutions
that would have the Assembly
call for suspension of nuclear tests,
subject to inspection but prior to
actual disarmament.

that Girard lured a Japanese wo-

A few minutes later, however,
Girard denied he was ever in a

shot and killed Mrs. Naka Sakai.
Judge Yuzo Kawachi was open-

Nickel's statement, made last

It said Girard stood up from
the foxhole they occupied, called
to Mrs. Sakai and waved her to-

The statement said Girard fired

Nickel also said that after the
killing Girard suggested moving

In the final count, 1,208 widely
cheering delegates voted for Hof-

140 for Thomas J. Hagger'ty.
Lee and Haggerty, both from
Chicago, had campaigned for a

The delegates thus chose to ig-

retiring union President Dave
Beck and other Teamsters bosses.
They had been accused of help-
ing themselves to vast sums from
the union's rich treasury and
abusing union powers.
The charges against Hoffa in-
cluded associating with known
hoodlums and racketeers.
Hoffa, denying the charges 'as
a smear, said he and the Team-

tremendous contribution to the

Now Revolving
In a special bulletin early this
morning, the Soviet Tass agency
said the Russian moon "is now
revolving around the earth at the
rate of one circuit every hour and
35 ,minutes."
The launching occurred just
three months and four days after
the opening of the International
Geophysical Year.
Moscow reported the satellite
can be seen with the simplest kind
of telescope glasses. Its velocity
,was given as something like five
miles per second at a height of
about 560 miles above the earth.

plan to launch several more earth
