It was the third unsuccesful coup in five years against the moderate Arab leader's rule. A witness reported at least 100 bodies were taken to a Khartoum hospital. Numairi ordered a dusk-to-dawn curfew in Khartoum and Omdurman, set up road blocks and ordered troops to shoot curfew breakers on sight. . «* * DIPLOMATIC SOURCES said army units staged the attempted coup, and an announcement by the Defense Ministry called on citizens to help capture "the soldier Mohammed Nour.'' Numairi said in a radio speech to the nation he had "all the information about the rebels but the time to divulge it is not now." A radio announcer introducing his speech called the rebels "butchers, agents and hirelings . . . who wanted to introduce reaction." Unconfirmed reports sooke of "mercen- could have resulted from general confusion in Khartoum after internal communications were cut Friday. The speech, monitored here, was Nu- mairi's first public statement since the 46-year-old leader of Africa's largest country returned Friday morning from a tour of the United States and France and was greeted with street fighting.

(Staff Photo by David Vick) King Juan Carlos Chooses Premier Carlos Names Moderate To Be Premier MADRID. Spain (AP) - King Juan Carlos I chose a young political moderate Saturday to become Spain's new premier, ending the monarchy's first cabinet crisis. The premier-designate. 43year-old Adolfo Suarez. has been secretary-general of " the Movement, successor to the Nazi-style Falange party which helped the late Generalissimo Francisco Franco Jo power. The Movement still is Spain's only legal- political organization. Suarez will be Spain's youngest premier when he is sworn in Monday for a five- year term, succeeding conservative Premier Carlos Arias Navarro. The king forced Navarro to resign last Thursday on grounds that he could not satisfy either the entrenched right or the leftist opposition demanding faster change. * * * ALTHOUGH TRAINED in the Franco system. Suarez tamed Spain's ultraconservative parliament when he pushed through a bill to legalize political parties a month ago. Parliament, 80 per cent of whose members were named by Franco, passed the political parties bill 338-91 with 24 abstentions after Suarez described the measure as "a fundamental piece in political relations for Spaniards, a decisive step toward the democracy we seek." The parliament since has balked at legislation to reform the penal code to make the party law workable. A government source said the king reportedly favored liberal Foreign Minister Jose Maria de Areilza, 66, for the post but finally chose Suarez as the man best able to get the monarchy's reforms past the powerful followers of Franco, who died last November. A third name submitted to the monarch by the Council of the Realm, his top advisory body, was that of Federico Silva Munoz, 52, a Christian Democrat and former public works minister. Suarez, a lawyer, is a former director of the government television and radio network and was one of the few elected members to the 56!-member parliament. Born in Avila Province in central Spain, he got his start in politics in the Falangist youth organization and went on. to become govern* of Segovia.
