The high count Mintfay affirmed a three-judge district count's decision declaring MUsouris' rastric'.ive abortion law, unconstitutional. Tne lower court had based its decision on,the Supreme Court's sweeping Jan. 22 decision that a state may not pi-evert a woman from having an abortion except in tihe final stages of pregnancy. That decision invalidated abortion laws in Texas and Georgia and, by implication, in many o'.tor states. Missouri Atty. Gen. John C. Danfortb argued unsuccessfully that the .Ian. 22 decision evaded the central question «f "whsfh- er an unborn child is a human lite" and iihereford could not be applied to states like Missouri with laws prohibiting ail abortions except to save the life of 'the mother. .

Whte House .energy adviser John A. Love said Monday the administration may «jon require the closing of gasolir.* stations on Sundays. His deputy, Charles DiBona, told a ccnsressiotral joint economic commit'tee that a ban on Sunday driving and closing ot public parks to automobiles are steps under consideration. "Knocking out Sunday driving 'is a real possibility," said Di'Bcwa, ihe Pneaidtent's special assistant for fuel matters. Asked anout a ban on nones- sanUal Sunday driving, -Love said, "I don't think ft is to be couched iii terms of a ban" and then added that (here may be an araojuncement on "the closing of filling stations en Sunday across the nation." DiBona said a Sunday driving ban would save 060,000 barrels of gaso'iw a day. Some consideration is beir.g given to making the ban partial so people could .go to church, he said. The administration is abo considering instituting Sunday blue laws to close commercial stores alnd shortening store hours during the week, he said. Meanwhile, the Senate passed anU sent to the House emergency energy 'legislation 1 (bat would give President Nixon the Dower to ofder gasoline relioni-ng. And Abe House Democratic leadership responded lo Nixon's dii'ticfcm of Congress 1 performance in the emuigy crisis 'by accusing the President oC "unwillingness to acknowledge the maeiril|tidc of Hie crisis 'and ... tek of any direction in dealing with it." Elsewhere on Capitol Hill, Treasury Secretary George P. Shultz told the Senate Foreign Reunion's Committee the nation would lia've to be "sharp and relentless" in limilhn! consumer use of energy. In other energy-related developments Monday: —Germany and Denmark jollied Holland and Belgium in banning Sunday pleasure driving because of the Arab oil squeeze on Europe. —The Pentaigon 'announced that 27 senior Defense officials have given up their MR sedans for smaller, more economical cars as a means of saving fuel A spokesman said Defense Secretary James It.

The envfrixuncntal ors/arization said intercity buses are more than twice as efficient as au- tomobfels in wot®/ use per passenger mile.
