DIRKSEN SOLID SILVER MEDAL new Prime Minister Luis Carrero Blanco to run Spain for the next five years. At the swearing-in ceremonies at Franco's official residence El Pardo, the new ministers pledged allegiance— in order—to Franco, to the country's only legal political party and to the constitution. Franco, now 80, retained the positions of chief of state, commander in chief of the armed forces arid head of the sole political party, National Movement. In the government overhaul, the vice premiership went to Torcuato Fernandez Miranda, a rightwinger who led the Nation al Movement. Until his appointment ,by Franco as prime minister, Carrero Blanco held that position. , Political sources said that although Carrero brought in 11 new names, giving the govern ment its biggest shakeup since 1951 when Franco dropped all but one of his ministers, it was a cabinet intended to guarantee political stability and economic growth. Bravo Dropped One major figure dropped from the cabinet was Gregorio Lopez Bravo, who as foreign minister pursued closer relations with the Communist world. He was replaced by Laureano Lopez Rodo, 52, an economics expert with ' little foreign policy experience. The education post went to Julio Rodriguez, the rector of Madrid University who pledged to crack down on campus unrest. The interior ministry post went to Mayor Carlos Arias of Madrid, credited with modernizing the capital's police force. Those moves were expected to appease the extreme right wing, which helped spark the government changes by calling for the dismissal of "soft" ministers. Those demands followed widespread unrest and some rioting. Among the- 19 ministers, sources said, seven are'identi­ fied with the Falange, an original source of much of Franco's power. It has become unhappy in recent years by what it considered its decreas ing status. BUENOS AIRES (UPI) President Hector J. Campora's new government proposed laws Monday that would curb foreign involvement in the Argentine economy by limiting investment and nationalizing bank deposits. Undersecretary of Finance Orlando D'Adamo said military men who ruled the country until Campora assumed office allowed foreigners to control "large numbers" of Argentine companies. "Now that is going to be reversed," he said. "These BriiishTroops Battle Snipers Second Night BELFAST (UPI) - British troops battled with Protestant snipers Monday for the second consecutive night and troops said today they hit at least seven gunmen. Army officers said at least a dozen gunmen, flitting from place to place using modern high velocity rifles, fired at troops. "This Is just about the heaviest gunfire I have seen since coming to Northern Ireland," one officer said. However, officers reported no soldiers were hit. In a separate incident, soldiers said they hit one of two gunmen who fired 20 shots at a patrol in south Belfast. An army spokesman said none of the troops was hit. Gun battles erupted first in east Belfast before switching to a west Belfast area inhabited by Protestants. First signs of fresh trouble came when a crowd of about 200, mainly women and children erected barricades to protest the continued detention of 12 officers of the Protestant militant Ulster Defense Association (UDA) picked up earlier in east Belfast. Troops moved into the area and UDA members promised to clear the streets if the troops were withdrawn. But their talks broke down after about an hour, the crowds melted from the streets and the shooting began. companies arc going to return to being Argentine." He did not use the word "nationalization" and business sources said they could hot determine if that, in fact, was what the government proposed under certain circumstances.
