Portugal - \» - Anti- Communist protesters and Communists battled with pistols and shotguns Saturday night around a gymnasium where Communist party leader Alvaro Cunhal was addressing a rally of 1.500 supporters. At least nine persons were reported wounded, two seriously. The shooting broke out after a crowd of farmers and townspeople shouting "No. No. No to communism!" began hurling rocks at the building, where the Communists were singing "Forward, Comrades, Forward!" * * * PISTOLS WERE FIRED at the building by men in the mob and the Communists inside blazed away with shotguns. Troops rushed into the town from nearby barracks. About 200 anti-Communists stationed themselves at the bottom of a rocky road leading to the gym, which was guarded by Communist sentries. Other protesters took up positions on street corners leading to the building. Angry Communists twice attacked Associated Press photographer Raould Fornez- za as he recorded the violence, kicking him in the ribs and taking away his film. He was not seriously injured. At one point a leftist inside the gym shouted to the crowd through a loudspeaker: '"we will shoot again if you don't disperse in two minutes!" Almost immediately new shots rang out. As the firing echoed outside, Cunhal told his supporters: "Reactionaries came to disturb our meeting. But we are confident a democratic regime will be established in the end." » * * THE COMMUNIST RALLY in Alcoba- ca, a town of 7,000 in Portugal's Roman Catholic heartland 65 miles north of Lisbon, was the first in a series the 61-year- old party chief has planned to counter what he called "a wave of Fascist violence." Last month, angry townspeople here beat Communists in the streets and sacked their headquarters. Some 40 other Com- mmunist offices across Portugal have been wrecked in the past month by mobs of anti-Communists unhappy with the military government's slide to the radical left and demanding the ouster of pro-Communist Premier Vasco Goncalves. Four persons were killed in the violence. Earlier Saturday, a mob armed with shotguns and carrying sticks stormed and set fire to Communist party heudquarters in the small town of headquarters north of Alcobaca. No injuries were reported. Jjrom PageOne Wreck The injured were taken to the hospital by a city ambulance, and by a Clark Ambulance Service emergency vehicle attended by Glen Minney and Darrell Taylor. The accident was investigated by patrolmen Roger Backus and R. K. Gordon. River in Clarksburg Area Rises Close to Flood Stage CLARKSBURG. W.Va. ( A P ) - Monsoon-like rains dumped more than three inches of water on north central West Virginia, raising the West Fork River near Clarksburg close to its flood stage Saturday. The intermittent thunderstorms and downpours Friday caused a five hour evacuation overnight of 55 Salem families, power outages and flooded basements in Harrison County, officials said. There were no reported injuries and no estimates of damage in the Salem evacuation, when ended when high waters receded. The National Weather Service predicted that the West Fork and Tygart Valley rivers would stay within their banks, unless more large rainfalls occurred. The West Fork was at 5.6 feet Saturday morning and was expected to crest Saturday evening at 6.5 feet, six inches short of flood stage. The Tygart Valley was predicted to crest Saturday at 10 feet, seven short of its flood stage. In a 24-hour period Friday night and Saturday morning, the storms dropped 3.5 inches of rain on Salem. 3.8 inches on nearby Clarksburg and 3.72 inches on Philippi. However, other towns in surrounding counties received only one or two inches. Electricity was off for several hours in Clarksburg and the southern part of the county. Water was pumped from Bridgeport basements, and U.S. 50 east of Clarksburg was briefly closed, but no other problems were reported. Brawls, Fighting Open English Soccer Season DAYTON A BEACH, Fia. (AP)-A young Wskonsin man had his right leg amputated just below the knee Saturday following a shark attack. Henry Peterson, 20, was listed in good condition after more than an hour of surgery at Halifax Hospital here. Doctors amputated the leg, which had been badly mauled, about three inches below the knee. * * * PETERSON, a junior at the University of Wisconsin at Whitewater, was on a vacation with his family, in Daytona Beach when attacked by a five-foot shark Tuesday in waist-deep water about 20 feet from shore. It was the fifth reported shark attack this summer on an 80-mile stretch of beach. None of the others was as badly hurt as Peterson. "Henry's been a pretty cool young man," his father Charles Peterson said following the surgery. Doctors said Peterson probably would be in the hospital for two more weeks. Saturday's operation was the second extensive surgery for Peterson since the attack. He underwent seven hours of emergency surgery on Tuesday. Pilot Rescued By Fishing Vessel HONOLULU (AP) - The pilot of a U2 re- connaisance plane which crashed off the coast of Thailand was rescued by a fishing vessel, the Pacific Command said Saturday. The pilot, Capt. John T. Little, 32, of Tucson, Ariz., was in good condition and has been returned to the Air Force Base at Utapao, a command spokesman said. Child Molesters Given Permission To Be Castrated SAN DIEGO - tf - A judge has authorized castration for two convicted child molesters with the provision that one of the men remain in custody until after the operation is performed. Superior Court Judge Douglas R. Woodworth authorized the operations Friday for Joseph De La Have and Joseph Kenner. He found Kenner fit for no-bail release when a responsible person is found to take care of him, but ordered that De La Have must be castrated under guard. De La Haye was ordered to appear in court Sept. 30. The judge said if the operation was not done by then. De La Haye will be sentenced to life in prison. The judge acted after studying psychological reports on the two 45-year-old laborers. The reports said both were aware of what they were doing and could not be cured but said Kenner was "highly motivated" to undergo castration. Both men were convicted two years ago in separate child molesting cases. They were sent to state hospitals but after a year doctors pronounced both incurable. They have spent the last year as cellmates in the San Diego county jail. Land-Sea "When we do. we'll let you know," the President told reporters.

It quoted the TV A as reporting in 1972 that effective use of technology in the region could triple farmers' agricultural production. One TVA project that analyzed specific problems of 62 farmers, the GAO said, boosted gross sales on average 75 per cent to 531,493 a year and average net income 74 per cent, to S7.935.

"But they usually don't shoot on the Sabbath." To the west, outside the port city of Tyre, flower-covered jeeps armed with recoilless rifles carried the bodies of two Palestinian guerrillas killed early Saturday morning by Israeli naval gunfire. Guerrillas in red berets flourished their AK47 rifles in the funeral procession. It was another day on the Lebanese border with Israel, and area of Israeli and Palestinian raids, firing of rockets, air strikes and artillery barrages that show no sign of abating even as "peace" is discussed elsewhere. For the Lebanese political leadership in Beirut, it is an unwanted front. The Lebanese officer corps also shows no enthusiasm for combat with the powerful Israelis, whose Phantoms and Mirages fly daily over Lebanon, sending out sharp sonic booms that in some places are the first alert of an attack. IV IN BEIRUT, the right-wing Phalangist party contends that "Lebanon's strength lies in her weakness," and blames the fitful Palestinian raids and rocketings for strong Israeli reprisals. A visit or in a two-day trip to the impoverished, depopulated border area, and to Palestinian camps and settlements along the southern coast, found a number of Lebanese who were far angrier with the Israelis than the Palestinians.

Ford Advisers Predict 3-Cent Gas Price Hike VAIL, Colo. (API-President Ford's economic and energy advisers said Saturday that the price of a gallon of gasoline will rise "roughly three cents" with the twin removal of price controls on domestic oil and the $2-a-barrel tariff on imported oil. The President announced Friday that he will veto a bill extending oil price controls and will lift the import fee if Congress upholds his veto. Energy administrator Frank G. Zarb . and economic adviser Alan Greenspan said if the program is enacted there would be no immediate sharp rise in the price of gasoline. Instead, he said, the increase would come over a period of one to nine months. Zarb predicted that Congress would sustain the President's veto, expected late this month after Ford returns from his Vail vacation. "I left Washington with the feeling that we had the sufficient strength to sustain the veto," Zarb said. Greenspan said, "I cannot conceive of Congress not passing a windfall-profits tax or a rebate to consumers." which are part of the President's over-all energy program. The two advisers based the three-cent estimate on the fact that the decontrol of domestic oil would increase the price an estimated six cents a gallon while the removal of the import tariff would decrease it by three cents. Greenspan, asked to assess the nation's present economic situation, replied: "I can best describe it as in the early- stages of recovery. We've seen a considerably favorable set of statistics in recent weeks that suggest we are on the way up." Asked if the President planned to apply pressure to keep major oil companies from squeezing out small independent operators and to keep prices in line. Zarb said. "The Justice Department has said that a jawboning exercise has in it some antitrust implications." But he said the President could jawbone in such nonprice areas as making sure the major companies do not change their supply patterns. "Given the public image of big oil in this nation today, I don't think we'll have any problem," Zarb said. "We anticipate good judgment to prevail with the oil compa- ' nies." Sale 4.79 Reg. 5.99.
