3-J GRHELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Tliurs.,May28,1977 Fodgorny fate linked to new const if uf ion By PEGGY POLK MOSCOW (UPI) - The publication of a new draft constitution for the Soviet Union may help to explain the abrupt dismissal of Soviet President Nikolai Podgomy from the ruling Politburo, diplomats say. The same meeting of the Communist Party Central Committee that "relieved" Podgorny of his Politburo duties Tuesday also approved for publication the draft constitution completed a day earlier by a committee headed by party General Secretary Leonid Brezhnev. The Presidium of the Supreme Soviet, the country's rubberstamp parliament, also met to approve the document. Complicating the procedure was the fact Podgorny remains, at least for the present, chairman of the presidium. Radio and television announced Podgorny's removal from the Politburo, the Soviet Union's highest policy making body, in one sentence. Western diplomats said the manner in which Podgorny was stripped of his real power -Strict cigarette ban sought from the FDA IN FULL BLAZE -- Flames leap from the windows of a midtown New York sauna bath and rooming house Wednesday, as firemen use aerial equipment to control the fatal fire. At By DONALD SANDERS Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - A number of organizations opposed to cigarette smoking are trying to force the Food and Drug Administration to regulate the sale of cigarettes as strictly as the agency plans to regulate saccharin. The anti-cigarette Action on Smoking and Health, along with other groups and individuals, prepared today to file with an FDA hearing officer a petition that asks the agency to prohibit the sale of cigarettes containing nicotine, except by pharmacies. The FDA has maintained that it does not have jurisdiction over the sale and use of cigarettes, but the petition by the anti-smoking groups challenges least eight persons died to the building, which an employe said this on Ie 8 d grounds. catered to homosexuals. (AP Wirephoto) for dead goes on in fire rubble By CATHY BOOTH NEW YORK (UPI) -- Fire officials today renewed the search for the bodies of patrons who may have been trapped in a fire that roared through a .Manhattan bath house catering to homosexuals. Nine men are known dead and 10 were injured in the four- alarm fire that engulfed the Everard Baths Wednesday. Officials said when the fire erupted as many as 100 men -ranging in age from their early 20s to their 70s -- were inside the building that sported a sauna, a swimming pool and 135 small cubicles. "From the looks of it, I'm afraid there could be more dead," Fire Commissioner John O'Hagan said as he surveyed the smoldering rubble. "It could be a week before we know how many were trapped in there." Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau said he will of male customers clad only in begin an investigation today to underwear or towels streamed determine if there were crimi- out of the crowded building as nal violations of the housing the flames spread, code.

Scores "This is one of those funny petitions that nobody says will work," said John F. Banzhaf III, a law professor at George Washington University and the executive director and general counsel of ASH, the smoking and health group. "I think it will work. Nobody has proved to me that it won't." He recalled in an interview accused in heiress murder friends brought millions home that in past campaigns his organization won the right to free' air lime to reply to cigarette commercials, won an eventual ban on cigarette advertising on the air and got separate sections for smokers on airplanes, trains and buses. But a spokesman for the FDA said "it is our clear understanding that Congress never intended for us or any other federal agency to regulate the use of cigarettes." Banzhaf's group was joined by 10 other organizations and by two former U.S. surgeons genera!: Dr. Jesse Steinfeld and Dr. Luther Terry. The FDA plans to ban the use of the artificial sweetener saccharin as a food additive, but permit its sale over the counter. It recently held public hearings on the ban, now scheduled to begin in July. The saccharin ban is based on tests in which rats were subjected to massive doses of the artificial sweetener. The anti-cigarette groups' petition said the FDA had based its saccharin ban on-"unproven assumptions." the post of president is largely ceremonial -left little doubt he was removed against his will in a Kremlin power struggle. Diplomats said Podgorny may have opposed the Brezh- nev constitution or that the constitution may restructure the presidency to permit Brezhnev to take it on in addition to his all-powerful party leadership post. There also was speculation Brezhnev might have wanted a vacancy near the top for a protege to be groomed to succeed the aging leadership. With Podgorny, 74, Premier Alexei Kosygin, 73, and Brezh- nev, 70, the question of a transition of power is one of the most important facing the Kremlin leadership. (fn Washington, U.S. intelligence analysts said Podgorny's ouster was the first visible sign of a struggle for succession. (Podgorny. they said, had made known mildly critical views about the new constitution, which upgrades the job of president. The experts said Brezhnev, eager to consolidate his control in preparation for the day he retires, found Podgorny unacceptable in that more powerful position.) The new constitution also appeared to tighten Moscow's control over the 15 republics making up the Union.
