Coup Staged In Uruguay By President MONTEVIDEO (UP I) President Juan Maria Bor« daberry, backed i>y the military, staged a bloodless coup today, dissolving Congress and replacing it with a 2(knember Council of State. He decreed prior censorship and banned any comment on government actions. A school holiday was ordered until July 20. The presidential decree read over a statewide linkup of radio stations seized earlier in the day by the military said the president took his action because of "the slow but sure and serious decline in the constitutional and legal processes." The president, who took office for a five-year term on March 1, 1972, said Congress would have to assume the responsibility for his action because of its refusal to act on a military petition that lefist Sen. Enrique Erro be stripped of his parliamentary immunity so that he could be tried for subversion. Erro, presently in Buenos Aires, was accused by the military of connivance with the underground, leftist terrorist Tupamaro movement. First action taken after proclamation of the decree was to issue an arrest order for Erro. The president's action was not entirely surprising. , The chief executive had met secretly with his military chiefs four times in as many days and only Tuesday it was openly speculated the country was on the verge of a new crisis because of the growing deadlock between the legislative and executive branches of government.

(UPI)People relaxed in their lawn chairs, children milled in the streets. It was a typical Chicago suburb on a lazy summer evening where supper, dishes still lay on tables as people caught a few moments to relax. But only hours before, gunshots had broken the normal neighborhood routine, and screams of terror had filled the streets in a two-block area. That was when, police said, a man went berserk with a gun and shot his parents and two neighbors, Henrietta Cliff, 35, and her daughter, Kimberly, 12. That was when three other bodies were> discovered only two blocks away in another small ranch-style home. Time to Reflect But the police cars were gone now. So were most of the newsmen. The neighbors had time to reflect on what had happened. What might have led to it? I "We've been neighbors for 23 years," said Arthur Johnson, 47, in regard to William Workman, 43, an unemployed carpenter who has been charged with four of the killings. "He was just a kid when we moved in. We were young newlyweds. He was a likeable young guy, just a normal kid. And he was a hard worker." But that had been 23 years ago, and Johnson said things happened during those 23 years He said Workman grew up got married and moved away But apparently Workman's marriage didn't succeed, and Work' man returned two years ago to live with his parents. Things were different when he returned. "He was a moody, sulking type of guy," Johnson said. He didn't respond to us like he did before. Oftentimes we would wave and he wouldn't wave back. He hadn't talked much since he was married. He was withdrawn." Johnson's wife, Anna, weeping as she spoke, described — Community Memorial Hospital is aigain participating this year in the Medical Education Community Orientation Program known as "SAVA-MECO." SAVArMECO is a program sponsored by the Illinois State Medical Society, the Illinois Hospital, Association and the Student American Medical Association. The purpose of 'the program is to introduce medical students to the practice of medicine in smaller communities by dem- MONMOUTH Community Memorial Hospital City-Farm Day Panel to Meet what had happened earlier that day. I heard a noise and it sounded like a firecracker. I opened the door and heard people screaming. I looked out and saw the Workman boy with a gun. I called the police and told them he was shooting. "Then the ambulance crew ...

Lane, Moline. was shooting a gun. I went out the door to go across the street and I was going up the driveway (of the Cliff home). The police started pulling up and getting out of the car. That was when I got shot at." Johnson paced nervously around his living room. His young grandson followed him, copying the manner in which he walked. "What can I say about the families (the Workmans and Cliffs)? I liked them both,", he said. "I don't understand it. I can't tell you why he did what he did." Energy Shortage Problems Growing United Press International More gasoline stations than ever have reduced operating hours or restricted sales because there's not enough fuel to go around, but the American Automobile Association says the scarcity varies greatly from area to area around the nation. Grain Drying Plan In other developments on the nation's energy supplies Tuesday, Iowa farmers were told of a nciW way to dry feed grain that does not use heat, a Massachusetts legislator said unless Martha's Vineyard gets more gasoline the tourist island may go bankrupt, and a court in Oklahoma denied a natural gas company's request to hike prices. But in Washington, Federal Power Commission Chairman John N. Nassikas said he agrees with the natural gas companies' argument that government regulation keeps the prices—and so profits—so low that it discourages exploration and thus perpetuates the fuel shortage, Nassikas, who testified before a Senate subcommittee Tuesday, also said his commission has found no evidence that natural gas producers have conspired to drive up prices by curtailing supplies. Vacation Gas Supply During the summer vacation months, however, most Americans aremore concerned with the supply of gasoline for their cans are more concerned with weekly report on filling stations nationwide, said less than half —46 per cent—are operating normally. The AAA said the Northeast— especially New York and New Jersey—had the fewest number of gasoline stations affected by the fuel shortage. The greatest number of stations curtailing sales and service are in the Pacific Northwest. The AAA said 47 per cent of the stations in its survey have reduced operating hours, 10 per cent have imposed limits on sales, and 4 per cent are literally out of gas. Tourist Island Needs The AAA report said 73 per cent of the filing stations in the Northeast were operating normally, but on Martha's Vineyard, a tourist island off Cape Cod, Massachusetts Rep. Terrence P. McCarty said gas stations must have fuel quick, lest the entire island go bankrupt. In Des Moines, officials of Union Carbide told Iowa farm editors of a new system. of drying feed grain chemically— by spraying on an organic acid —<as opposed to the present method of mechanical drying using heat from burning gas. But Union Carbide said the technique was good only for animal feed grain—not for grain to be consumed by humans. FTC Tells Congress Oil Industry Helped Create Gasoline Shortage WASHINGTON (UPI) - A Federal Trade Commission (FTC) official told Congress today the anti - competitive structure of the oil industry has helped create the gasoline shortage. The saime industry, added James T. Halverson, director of the FTC's Bureau ol Competition, may have engaged in a conspiracy to make it appear there is a shortage of natural gas. Antitrust Action The FTC is prepared to recommend antitrust action against eight of the major oil firms, the Washington Star- News said today, crediting its report to congressional sources. Halverson, in testimony before a Senate Judiciary subcommittee, did not forecast FTC action but he said that on the basis of a lengthy FTC investigation of the energy shortage, "the staff of the Bureau of Competition has preliminarily concluded that the structure, conduct and performance cif ithe petroleum industry raises serious antitrust issues." "Since early this year, the Bureau of Competition staff has been receiving, with increasing frequency, reports of independent (gasoline) marketers who have been forced to close some or even all of their stations," Halverson said. "We are concerned that unless something is done quickly, irreparable harm may result." He said, "Our Investigation suggests that activities by the major integrated petroleum contributes to the independents' present difficulty." Demand Doubled Halverson said that in the tiiced outside the larger urban medical school-hospital complexes. Basic to the program!, is the hope that students participating will decide to establish a practice in a small community. Mark L. Leafgreen, Rio, a current student at the Univer sitly of Illinois, will be at Com munity Memorial Hospital for 10 weeks. Laaifigreen is a graduate of Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. He comes from a rural background and is interested in the possibility of developing a medical practice in a small town following his medical training. He started his work ait OMH Monday. He will reside at the hospital and his work will be based .there, but he will also spend some time in local physicians' offices, nursing tomes and other health-related facilities.

The rioters tried continuously to erect barricades across streets, but were stopped each time by charging army troops who fired volleys of rubber bullets and tear gas. The troops finally dispersed tte crowds well after midnight. Earlier Tuesday, gunmen killed three other persons- including a Catholic legislator- and Monday night three young Irish Republican Army (IRA) gunmen died when their own bomb.exploded in their car.

Mediators To Review Construction Shut Down burned in lamps and spread like butter on bread. READ THE WANT ADS! MARION (UPI) - Federal mediators scheduled a meeting today with operating engineers and representatives of contracting groups in an effort to settle a 10-day strike that has shut down millions of dollars in construction projects and idled hundreds of workers. Some 500 members of Local 318, International Union of Operating Engineers at Harrisburg, covering 14 Southern Illinois counties, went on strike June 18. Their contract with the Egyptian Contractors and Southern Illinois Builders associations expired Dec. 31. L.D. Allen, assistant business manager of Local 318, said the union's main concern was a "grandfather clause" which he said permitted former contract rates to carry over six months into a new contract period. More than 50 smaller contractors have signed interim agreements with the union since the strike began, putting some 200 operating engineers back to work, Allen said. Some 40 to 50 contractors remain unsigned, he said. The strike lias shut down several large construction projects including work on Interstate 24 and 64.
