A16 Star-TriDune. Casper k'o Draft CootiDiMd from Al Circuit Court of Appeal, V S. District Court Judge Edward Cahn. and t' S. Distnct Chief Judge Joseph Lord III wrote in their opinion "In this) case the harm to the plaintiffs is neither remote nor hypothetical. Registration is a sufficient intrusion on the rights of any citiien to allow this court to adjudicate the constitutionality of that registration We need not wail, and should not wait, until Uie governmental intrusion on the individual's civil rights reaches maximum proportions and the nation is is a time of crisis The case is ripe "Gender discrimination is a badge of inferiority and must pass constitutional rev iew whether or not it is arguably for the benefit of women "The die is already cast for substantial female involvement in the military." WHEN A COURIER arrived at Weinberg's law office with the opinion, he shouted, "We won!" Weinberg said, however, that Congress has only allocated S8 million for the previously proposed draft legislation and therefore cannot afford to register women. An ACLU spokeswoman in Washington said, "The ACLU Is against registering and drafting anyone in peacetime. We are gratified that the court upheld Important rights for men and women." If Congress changes the law permitting draft registration of women, Weinberg said, "it would be a politically risky thing. It would make it more difficult for the country to get into unpopular wars. "If they were drafting women during Vietnam, there may never have been a Vietnam."

Anderson attacks arms race ByMATTQUINN WASHINGTON (UPI) - Returning home Friday from his five-nation Middle East and European tour, independent presidential candidate John Anderson wasted no time in blasting Republican Ronald Reagan for advocating "the most expensive arms race In the history of this republic. " " Anderson told a news conference at Dulles International Airport that Reagan was repudiating the basic philosophy of the last four administrations that relied on the notion of essential equivalence in military strength. "To now say we are going to go for broke and we are simply going to run the Russians into the ground with more than f 100 billion of additional expenditures in military over the next three years on top of the present level of expenditures," promise a tax cut of $140 million over three Eight executed By the Associated Press Seven men and a woman were executed on a street in downtown Tehran at dawn Friday, Tehran radio reported, the latest such mass sidewalk execution ordered by revolutionary judge Ayatollah Sadegh Khalkhali in his bloody crusade against drugs and sin in Iran.

Travel Continued from Al The occupancy rate for hotels and motels ranged from 46 percent in January to 91 percent in July. And Wyoming visitors comprised nearly one-fourth the total occupancy for all hotels and motels in the state, the report said. Its analysis of Park and Teton counties shows that Wyoming visitors lead the list in Park County while Californians are in the tourist majority in Teton County. The purpose of the report is to provide insight into the composition and economic characteristics of the travel industry. Television Continued from Al Casper was made in order to increase the station's viewing audience and its advertising base, said Cantu. The station currently serves approximately 80,000 viewers in Riverton, Thermopolis, Lander, Worland, Dubois, Shoshoni and the Greybull Basin. "Although we won't be competing with the two Casper stations, KTWO and KCWY, for advertisers right away, we certainly plan to some time," Cantu said. "By beaming into Casper, we will almost double the amount of our potential viewers. That is good for sales in the northern part of the state, and will eventually be good for sales in Casper," he said. KTNW PLANS to have a large in house news staff, as well as bureaus in each of the areas it serves, said KTNW Sales Manager Jon Roberts. "We've only been on the air up here for three-and-a-half months, and have been concentrating on getting a high quality local news program on the air," said Roberts. "In a while we hope to have one of the largest news teams in the state, providing our viewers with on-location coverage of hard news and sports. I couldn't say exactly when that will be, though," Roberts said. Cantu, who previously worked for KOA television in Denver as a program director, said HlHo also owns WDHN-TV in Dotham, Ala. The company is also constructing a station in Valdosta, Ga he said. years, and at the same time endorse a balanced budget "is to inflict on the American people the same old politics that they've been exposed to for a long time," he said. ANDERSON WAS greeted by several hundred youthful supporters and his wife Kiki after his flight from London. " "In calling for superiority the real danger is that a Reagan administration would launch the most expensive arms race in the history of this republic and with it perhaps increase the incalculable dangers that would go with the kind of response that would be made by the Soviet Union and I think not add to the ultimate security of this country," Anderson said. Anderson said the foreign leaders he spoke with on his 10-day trip were "fearful that an American administration before it is even installed in office is going to be a strain on alliance ties." in Tehran AFTER THE FAILED U.S. rescue attempt April 25, the militants reported they had transferred hostages from he embassy to more than a dozen cities throughout Iran. Officials in Washington have expressed doubt that any were ever moved, however. The 52 American hostages end their 37th week in captivity Saturday.

Courtenay Slater, the department's chief economist, said the recovery may be slow, and unemployment will remain very high, unless appropriate steps are taken, . including a tax cut. She told reporters the "appropriate time" for a cut in taxes would be next year. THE DEPARTMENT RELEASED preliminary figures showing the Gross National Product adjusted for inflation dropped at an annual rate of 9.1 percent during the April-June quarter of this year equaling the post World War II record drop in the first quarter of 1975, during the last recession. GNP, the total of goods, and services produced by the nation, rose a modest 1.2 percent during three months of this year. Sixty percent of the second quarter i No end to heatwave in sight By United Press International Scattered showers cooled the sizzling South by a few degrees Friday but relief was minimal and fleeting. Meteorologists saw no end to a month-long heat wave blamed for more than 1,000 deaths in the Southwest, South and Midwest. Psychics attending the three-day Psychic Entertainers Association convention in St. Louis predicted the killer heat would abate In precisely 10 days. Perhaps they forgot Missouri dubs Itself the "Show Me State." "IF THEY KNOW SO much, how come they're holding their convention here," quipped one sweating St. Louis resident as temperatures climbed toward the 100- w QUE UNTTED PRESS INTERNATIONAL Ayatollah Khomeini, flashed the 'V sign Friday after he escaped an assassination attempt. force9 at 9 yearly clip decline was due to reduced purchases of ' automobiles and other vehicles by both business and consumers, and another 30 percent reflected a sharp reduction in housing construction. "The 1980 recession struck with full force during the second quarter," Mrs. Slater said. BUT BY THE END of the quarter, she said, forces needed for recovery seemed to have begun: interest rates were down; new home sales, building permits and housing starts were rising; and there were "tentative indications" of increased sales of automobiles and other consumer goods and of reductions In inventories. If those trends continue, she told a news conference, business will sell off excess inventories, production will revive and "growth will resume before the end of the year." But Mrs. Slater called attention to a big hitch in that recovery. Inflation and recession have reduced the basic purchasing power of Americans. So-called "real disposable personal Income" what an individual has to spend after taxes and inflation have taken their degree mark again. Oven-like temperatures baked much of the country and the 20-state death toll climbed to 1,026. Missouri reported 264 heat-related deaths the most In the country. State officials said the number of heat deaths In a normal year usually Is around 10. . Arkansas reported 120 deaths, Texas 96, Alabama 92, Tennessee 81, Kansas 74, Georgia 63, Illinois 61, Mississippi 56, Oklahoma 35, Louisiana 23, Kentucky 23, Florida 8, South Carolina 7, Ohio 6, Iowa and Nebraska 5 each, Indiana 4, North Carolina 2 and Colorado 1.

PARIS (CPU - Taree would bV" assassin posing as reporters invaded the apartment building of exiled Iranian Prime Minister Shahpour Bakhtiar with pistols blazing Friday, killing a police officer and a woman neighbor In a wM gunbattle. All three were captured, Bakhtiar, Iran's last prime minister before the shah was toppled in February 197s, was eating breakfast in his kitchea at the time and was not injured. Police said one of the gunmen was slightly wounded. A woman seen Seeing the scene was being sought. BESIDES THE POLICEMAN and the 45-year-old woman killed in the exchange of gunfire, another policeman and several people attracted by the noise were wounded. ' x Bakhtiar was named by Iran as a plotter In an abortive coup attempt against Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini which was uncovered tost week. He said he had been expecting the attack tor some time and vowed to "continue struggling for reestabllshtnent of a democratic and constitutional regime in Iran." Officials said the gunmen flashed press cards from the Communist newspaper L'Humanlte to gain entrance to the building. They pulled guns and opened fire on police in the hallway outside BakhUar's third-floor apartment when the exile leader's son, answering a bell, opened the door slightly but kept It secured by a chain. 'THEY STARTED SHOOTING as soon as the door was ajar," said Bakhtiar, 65. Police said at least seven pistol bullets toll - declined about 5 5 percent in the second quarter. "UNTIL THIS DECLINE can be reversed through some combination of reduced inflation, employment growth and tax reduction economic growth is likely to be quite weak, with little or no reduction in unemployment," Mrs. Slater said. Unemployment, she said, is likely to continue rising during the remainder of this year, possibly reaching a peak of t.i percent to I percent. The latter figure would equal the peak unemployment of the last recession. But in terms of the overall economy , and despite the sharp one-quarter GNP drop, Mrs. Slater said she still feels "this is not as deep and not likely to be as prolonged a recession" as 1975, which was the biggest downturn since the Great Depression of the 1930s. ALTHOUGH SOMEWHAT more positive than other administration officials on the need for a tax cut,. Mrs. Slater's position was basically the same as that of President Carter and Treasury Secretary G. William Miller. was the 26th consecutive day of triple-digit readings In Dallas. Wichita Falls has reached 106 degrees or more for 24 straight days. In St. Louis, the morgue was full and ambulance drivers were working double shKts. "The other day we had seven hearses backed up at the morgue to get bodies out," said Dan Emerson, director of the Disaster Operation Office In St. Louis. Nearly 100 heat-related deaths have been reported In St. Louis and authorities say they believe there are more bodies yet . to be discovered. "We put out a plea for people to check on their neighbors," said Emerson. "People are dropping like flies on the streets."
