4^ - (aolgsbuffl Registef'MQil. Golesburg, IK. Mondoy. Aprff H> f#l reme s WASklNGTOJl (tiPI) - -nie Supreriie Court dismissed today an appeal by 15 Elks lodges in Maine from a state court ruling which invalidated their liquor licenses on grounds of racial discriminalion. The court acted in a brief order. The appeal was made on a decision on Dec. 11, 1992, by the Supreme Judicial Court of Maine, which upheld a 1969 antidiscrimination statute. The U.S. Supreme Court blocked the effect of the ruling on Jan. 22, pending disposition of the appeal. Meantime the lodges were permitted to operate under their licenses. Justices William 0. Douglas, Potter Stewart and Harry A. Blackmun dissented from today's action. The law forbids racial discrimination by those serving food and drink but excepts organizations "oriented to a particular feligibri or which are ethnic in character." The Elks, which restrict membership to white males, argued that this distinction violates the Constitution's guar antee of "eqUal protection of the laws." They also alleged invasion of their right of privacy. "Poise is likely to be lost by any fair-minded person who examines the Maine statute here in issue, which effectually destroys all private clubs whose associational preferences do not coincide with those of. the state," the appeal to the Supreme Court said. The appeal said the high court has decided many cases in the interests of associations for the advancement of black people and "the Elks are a national association, about 1.5 million strong, for the advancement of white people.

Pennsylvania then imposed the p61icy under the state human rights act and the Supreme Court denied review. S^arate lawsuits on the' Maine law were originally filed by lodges in Portland, Gardiner and Bangor; and by a group of 12 headed by the Brunswick lodge. All were eventually consolidated in one suit. ill llWl™!*"*"""""*"' By COLIN BAKER BELFAST (UPI) - A weekend of bombing and shooting left two persons dead, one of them the first known Protestant member of the Irish Republican Army and the second a woman slain by gunmen as she answered her doorbell.

NEW YORK (UPI) - Police and federal narcotics agents announced today the indictment of 86 alleged drug dealers, "including some of the biggest dealers" in the metropolitan area, on federal charges of conspiracy to sell dangerous drugs. A federal official said five suspects .were arrested in Detroit and at least 60 others were arrested at their homes in the New York metropolitan area over the weekend. The official said that an undetermined number of the other 21 were already in custody and the rest were still'^'erg dragged out being sought. .Officials termed Daniel P. Casey, regional director of the federal Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (BNDD), said the 86 were members of "a series" of "interconnected" rings whiflh had links to organized crime. He declined to elal^orate but Officials termed three of them "top priority-top echelon" suspects and identified them as Gennaro Zanfardino, John Capra and Leo Guarino. The fourth su^ect was identified as Frank Bassi.

Zanfardino and Capra refused to leave the car that brought them from New Jersey and Flash Floods Strike South After Rains VICKSBURG, Miss. (UPI) A line of heavy thunderstorms churned through waterlogged Mississippi today with flash flooding reported in Jackson and other areas. But weather officials said the rain was not expected to have any major effect on the backwater flooding in the Mississippi Delta north of Vicksburg where several hundred families have been evacuated during the past three weeks. "This rain isn't gouig to help any, that's for sure," river forecaster C. J. O'Brien said. "But it shouldn't affect the over-all isutation materiaHy unless we have a lot more rain." An emergency work crew of 100 convicts shored up a levee near Vicksburg Sunday, protecting about 500 homes from tile backwater flooding. Col. K. E. McLaughlin, area civil defense director, said the force of convicts from the state penitentiary Completed the task of raising low spots in the levee. The Civil Defense had estimated last week that about 200 homes around the Eagle Lake fishing resort northwest of Vicksburg would be damaged by high water, but McLaughlin said it was now anticipated that only about 20 to 25 homes would be involved. Backwater from the rain swollen Yazoo River worked its way through an earthen dam last Friday and pushed through second rock dam that had been erected as a backup. Downriver in Louisiana, the flood waters of the Mississippi river gouged out the foundation of a 140-foot long concrete wall ithat helps direct the river's flow, forcing Army engineers to open the Morganza floodway that has never been used since it was built in 1954. Maj. Gen. Charles C. Noble, the president of the Mississippi River Commission and the Army chief engineer in the area, said Louisiana authorities advised him that all livestock and mobile property would be removed from the flood area by Monday.
