Authorities said at least 76 policemen were injured. Students aihmed with iron bars and tossing Molotov . cocktails fought for hours in the Latin Quarter with police who retaliated with tear gas volleys and club-swinging charges. Scores Injured Officials said 16 of the injured police were hospitalized, nine of them suffering burns, and 15 youths were arrested. Scores of demostna- toirs were injured, police said, but the exact number was not known. , Two police vans, a police bulldozer and six automobiles were .set afire or damaged in the melee, witnesses said. The main clash came on the Rue Monge where hundreds of youths—wearing cnash helmets and armed with axe handles, iron bars and bottles filled with gasoline—tossed firebombs at police from the street and from rooftops in a vain attempt to prevent a rally held by an extreme righbwing group, Ordre Nouveau (New Order). The demonstrators, dispersed by thousands of police called to the riot area in scores of vans, failed to stop the New Order meeting and some 500 of their rightwing counterparts cheered speakers inside the police- ringed Mutualite Hall. 93rd Demonstration Interior Minister Raymond Marcellin said it was the 93rd mass demonstration of the year and police said it was by fa the most violent. Near the end of the evening, the rioters split into smaller groups and hurled stones and other objects at police on the Left Bank. That fighting spread to the Place de la Bastille on the Right Bank. Residents of the Rue Monge, Rue Lacepede and the Place Contrescarpe were cleaning up the streets today, picking up burned-out tear gas canisters and sweeping up broken glass. Many leaders of the left wing movement in France, including writer Jean-Paul Sartre, had c a'l 1 e d for demonstrations against the New Order rally. The rightists were demanding a one-year halt of immigration into France, where more than 20 per cent of the labor force is composed of immigrants—mostly North Africans.

The two girls are on their way to Brigham Young University. President , Nixon, 18 years ago promised that when the twin girls grew up he would see to it that they received a college education in the United States. The promise and the dream of the girls is now coming true. UNIFAX WASHINGTON (UPI) - Mar tha Mitchell said today her husband John Mitchell would "go to jail for Richard Nixon. "He's protecting the President of the United States," she declared in an early morning telephone conversation." Mrs. Mitchell said she had a number of "reasons" to express those views but she declined to be specific. "I don't know why, but maybe it's because he had so much faith in Nixon, even after all this," she said. Seen Leaving Mrs. Mitchell declined to say from where she was calling. Thursday, she was seen leaving her New York City apartment house with travel luggage. Mitchell apparently ,stayed behind. As to how her husband is bearing up after being implicated in the Watergate scandal, Mrs. Mitchell said, "He's a hurt person. My husband had more integrity on Wall Street than anyone else. . He feels everybody's got their tail between their legs and is running now." She said her husband had lost a "helluva lot of weight" in the past few months, and had been preparing for his defense. Willing To Testify She once again said she would be "perfectly willing" to testify before the Watergate investigating committee, but added "they don't want me." She also disclosed that Mitchell "still takes up" for H. R. Haldeman, the dismissed White House chief of staff, John D. Ehrlichman, Nixon's forme? domestic adviser, she said, however "was so nasty to John, it was unbelievable." Because of Ehrliohmart, MtS. Mitchell said, her hiiSband wanted to quit as head of "the Justice Department two years after he was in office. 'It persuaded him to stay ol because I thought he was -doirtg a good job," she said.

The Foreign Ministry; responding to remarks made by Egyptian Foreign Minister Mohammed el-Zayyat, said Eban would be willing to meet the Egyptian official in the presence of U.N.. envoy Gunnar V. Jarring so long as Cairo did not set prior conditions for the talks. By prior conditions, a Foreign, Ministry spokesman said, Israel meant that El-Zayyat would not use asa basis for the talks proposals made by ABOVE ALL MAKE IT WHITE'S ROOFING 342-0185 Jarring as head of a peace- seeking mission created by the United Nations to end the Arab- Israeli dispute. Included in Jarring's plan was a proposal for Israeli withdrawal from Arab lands captured in the 1967 war. The Jarring mission broke down in 1971. The spokesman said that Israel regards El - Zayyat's statement, made during a Danish television interview, as an offer for talks similar to that made in mid-May by President Habib Bourguiba of Tunisia. "It has nothing to do with it (the Jarring mission) at the moment," the spokesman said. "Forget the Jarring mission, dsepite the fact that the name Jarring is used. Compare it with Bourguiba—an offer." Israel has called on the Tunisian leader to act on his offer and to meet with Israeli representatives. BUENOS AIRES (UPI) Former President Juan D. Peron, whose return from 18 years in exile sparked bloody gunbattles, said Thursday he hoped to bring about a peaceful revolution "without costing the life of a single Argentine." "We have to make a revolution, but to be valid it must be peaceful," Peron said in a radio and television address to the nation. Constructive Peace Speaking from his home in a swank Buenos Aires suburb, Peron called on all Argentines to unite in a "constructive peace" to rebuild the country, which he said was in "a grave situation." At his side as he spoke were Hector J. Campora, the new Argentine president and a loyal Peron protege, and Peron's third wife, Isabel. The 77-year-old former president made no mention in the speech of the violence that marred his return Wednesday, nearly 18 years after he wes deposed in a military coup. Bloody Fighting The gunbattles erupted between dissident Peronists who fought for control of a highway bridge where Peron was supposed to address a welcome- home rally by more than two million people. The fighting left at least 14 dead and 225 wounded. A chartered plane carrying Paron from his exile home in Madrid had to'fbe diverted to a military air base. He then helicoptered to the presidential residence. Reading from a prepared text Thursday night, he- described the country as being in a "post Social Security Increase Considered by Congress ANNOUNCEMENT We Are Proud to Announce That v CHARLES R.

Phones 343-5416 or 342-2137 "DICK" DAHL WASHINGTON (UPI) - A 5.5 per cent increase in payments in 1974 to all 28 million Social Security recipients is considered certain to pass the Senate and likely to confront President Nixon next week. Its approval by the House would put a quick test to Nixon's post-Watergate mood of accommodation with Congress, signaled this week when he signed three bills he had originally opposed. On Nixon's behalf Treasury Secretary George P. Shultz opposed the Social Security boost Thursday as unnecessary in light of last year's "tremendous" 20 per cent increase, but the Senate Finance Committee brushed away his objections and voted 12 to 2 to raise payments. Republicans Wallace F. Bennett, Utah, and Paul J Fannin, Ariz., voted no. Also winning committee ap^ proval were a liberalization of welfare payments to aged, blind or disabled adults; a social $268.7 delay in a cutback of services to the poor; a ceiling on federal expenditures in fiscal 1974, as Nixon proposed, and a rider to require congressional approval when a President refuses to spend funds appropriated by Congress.' : MEET BIG CHIEF m 5K 1973 Catalina 4-Dr, Sedan Stock #P73-61 —Turbohydramatic Trans —Power Steering —Power Disc Brakes — Front —Custom Air Conditioning -1178x15 WSW Tires -AM Radio 00 -Soft Ray Glass - All —Roof Drip Mouldings —Body Side Mouldings —Rocker Panel Mouldings —Deluxe Wheel Covers —Protective Bumper Strips -330 V^8 Engine —Courtesy Lamp Group Gerry Pontiac-Cadillac, Mnc, 172 S.

He said only it would be a peaceful one "without costing the life of a single Argentine." Asked to Return Peron called on all scientists and trained Argentines working abroad to come home and thereby reverse the brain drain to bring to the government "the greatest quantity of gray matter, all chosen by their true value not for lesser political interests." ~He defined a good Peronist as "not somebody who shouts 'my life for Peron,' but someone who upholds the Peronist ideological creed." Peron's role in the 28-day-old Campora government is not yet clear, but Campora has promised to follow his orders as "a soldier of General Peron." Free Checking Package Galesburg.
