Look How Your Soviet Got Liberated By WILLIAM L. RYAN AP Special Correspondent Hey'girls'. While 'ybu're'- oul liberating yourselves all over the place to- day, you might do-well to reflect on your Soviet sisters: They got liberated. There was a big fuss about this.great step toward. Trouble was, though, that the Soviet la- dies neglected to mind the store. While they were given, on pa- Other Lib Stories, Pp. 4A, 5B per, everything their Western sisters are campaigning for, In reality they wound up with little ol of anything.

Agnew'declared today that all TJ.S.: forces would be withdrawn from South Korea when the modernization of that nation's armed forces is sibly within five years. Continuing Asian-tour, Agnew flew from South': Korea to. the Nationalist Chinese island of Formosa after two' days'1 of extended confer- ences "with Korean President Chung Hee Park.' During the-iligh't'to'Formosa, Agnew. .told newsmen It was "very doubtful" that the United States Would leave even a token force in Korea; after the mod- .ernizaUqn of South Korea's army, navy and air force. The United States now lias troops in South' Korea and plans to withdraw by next June 30. South Korean officials claim they need S3 billion in American aid in the next five than four times the present program to improve their forces to the point where they can fight off any North Ko- rean attack without U.S. help. Agnew said he "pointed out very frankly to President Park that at such time a's the mod- ernization program is complete the long range program, it might take five years or more would hope that they would be in a state of economic and inilitary balance that would no longer necessitate any Amer- ican forces in Korea." Asked if this meant all U.S. forces would be withdrawn from Korea within five years, Agnew replied: "I don't know whether five years will complete the pro- gram. "When the modernization pro- gram is completed to the point where military security is intact without American participation, we will, of course, pull out troops from Korea. Whe'lher we would leave any token force there alter that is very doubt- ful." Asked it Park realizes this long-range U.S. withdrawal plan, Agnew said: "He accepts that and I think he accepts it as desirable." Agnew said he and Park "reached a basic accord" but added this did not include any details about the increased U.S. military aid which the vice president announced on his ar- rival in Seoul Monday.

Korean Premier Chung Il-kwon, in fare- well remarks to Agnew, said he hoped he would report fully to President Nixon and the U.S. government on Ihe "realities" in Korea. This was a reference lo the Korean government's contention that the Ihreat from North Korea is a good deal greater than U.S. officials think It is, and that South Korea's armed forces need a huge amount of modern military material in the'next five years to make them equal to North Korea's forces. Agnew' landed at a military airport in central Formosa, and a U.S. Marine helicopter took him to President Chiang's sum- mer home here in the moun- tains. Jury Questioning Continues Today COLORADO CITY selection in the murder trial ot Mr. and Mrs. Robert Eugene Monleilh of Abilene entered its third day here Wednesday with stale and defense attorneys attempting lo fill the remaining seven seals in the jury box. One man was picked Monday; the opening day of the trial, and four more jurors all' men- were added Tuesday. Monteith, 24, former Abilene High School athlete, and his 18- year-old wife, Judy, are charged with beating to death their Ihree-month-old daughter, Stephanie) last Jan. 17 in Abilene. The four jurors selected Tuesday included two Texas Electric Service Co. employes, Eldon G. Smith, 49, and Joe Boyd, 45, both of Colorado City, Emory Sweatt, 59, Westbrook farmer and oil field worker, and Cecil Lozano, 48, maintenance man for Colorado City schools.. Lynn Hamilton, 47, of Loraine, was a Monday selection. Twenty two prospective Jurors had been questioned when District Judge Austin McCloud adjourned court at p.m., Tuesday. Six Jurors were excused for cause by Judge McCloud. Two were cut by the stale. Of the six Jurors excused for cause, one said he had an opinion in the case, three objected to the death penally, one said he did not believe in granting probation in a murder trial and one said he objected to the two year sentence the couple could receive if they are convicted. Under Texas law, penalty for murder is from two years to life in prison or death. The five jurors chosen have been allowed to go home and have been told to report lo the .courthouse. Thursday at 9 a.m. Defense atlorneys, court appointed Bob Hanna and Nelson Quinn, both of Abilene, and court appointed Tom Hees of Colorado City have indicated in questioning prospective jurors that they will attempt to show that the child had been dropped accidentally about Jan. 13 and that the Infant's death was due to the fall and not lo the alleged beating of Jan. 10. Quinn, who is representing Monteith, told prospective jurors that the defense is not denying that Monteith struck the baby. Quinn .said Ihe defense is saying that the infant died as a result of being accidentally dropped and .not from being hit. WEATHER U. i.

"Soviet said ils founder, Vladimir Lenin, "is the first and only one In the world to destroy entirely all the old, iniquitous bourgeois laws which have placed women In an une- qual position as compared, with men." Well, said the Communists, that being the case, women would have to be liberated from dependence upon men economi- cally. Out of this the women got the right to work. .They didn't get much else. What's the situation today, a hair century later? Well, it says in article 122 of the Soviet Constitution that women have complete equality with men in all economic, social and political spheres. The labor law, revised as of 1970, lays down in articles SB through 73 ujsl how women are to be protected against heavy labor or harsh conditions. Fact of the matter is that the men simply ignore the constitu- tion and the labor law when it suits them. Any visitor to any city or farm in the Soviet Union can see Soviet women at heavy labor. Indeed, they are the prin- cipal source of farm labor, while men hold down practically all the bureaucratic desk jobs. There is only a tiny percentage of collective farm chairmen who are ladles. In the cities, women do much of the menial work and look it. about, half Uie labor force, leave'. their young in .state-run nurseries while they work as truck drivers, 'street car motormen, crane or other heavy machine operators, brick- layers, hod carriers, building la- borers, street and even lumberjacks and miners. The Soviet press points proud- ly lo Ihe number of Soviet wom- en who are engineers, doctors, lawyers and so forth, are a small minority of the 130 million women in the Soviet Un- ion. The press also notes frequent- ly that there are a large number ol women in government. There are, and most are all powerless. For example, 30 per cent of the deputies of the Supreme So- viet, which passes for a parlia- ment, are women. The parlia- ment is completely without pow- er. But there is no woman on the Communist Party Politburo which runs the country. There is no woman on the party central secretariat. There is no woman heading any central party de- partment or publication. Of all Ihe firsl secretaries bossing par- lies in the ]5 republics around Ihe country al republic and re- gional levels, not one is a wom- an, nor does a woman head a ruling party committee In any important city. One lady bu- reaucrat, Yekaterina Furtseva, is the only ranking government figure, and as culture minister, she has little real authority. Women in Ihe Soviet Union outnumber men by more than 10 million, and have outnumbered the men for years, sometimes by e good deal more. Maybe they need thing like a women's liberation movement RIGOROUS WOMEN'S RIGHTS IN Equality of the sexes in the Soviet Union while theoretically granting women economic inde- pendence also means manual lalxir for families. Sometimes the Soviet Constitution is ignored and "liberated" women wind up bending their backs to heavy construction tasks. Here, heavily. clothed women mix concrete on. Moscow con- struction site; (AP.Wirephoto) Car Bombed; Judge Injured Picture, Pg. 8A TULSA, Okla. (AP) Local stale and federal officials joined in a massive .search today for Ihe person who .tried (d kiU'Dlst. Court Judge Fred Nelson Tuesday with a bomb that shredded his auto and left the jurist seriously A reward fund for the bomber's, conviction rose to Tuesday night, almost before the end of a six-hour operation by four surgeons who later reported Nelson's injuries may be permanent: Gov. Dewey Barllctti who appointed Nelson in 1967, termed the attack "unbelicv- able" arid ordered the Slate Crime Bureau to help local officers. Tulsa Police Com- missioner Brad Scheer said he had asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation to help, and an FBI bomb squad was said to be investigating. The blast was the latest In a scries of bomb attacks on attorneys and judicial ofticials in northeastern Oklahoma in recent years. Fire Marshal Hoy Gann said the bomb, believed lo have been dynamite, was "placed by a professional who knew exactly what he was doing." Court employes, at Ihe direction of Presiding Judge Itobcrt D. Sims, began compiling records of every case judge Nel- son has heard, in Ihe hope of finding some trace of the attacker. Nelson was leaving his home lo vote in his own election when the blast occurred. The bomb, apparently rigged lo the car ignition switch, tore Ihe front end of the car apart. Doctors said he suffered injury to the abdominal wall, and right foot and urinary trad. "Some damage may have permanent said the chief operating physician, "but it's just too early to tell. Although hospital officials said that he was still heavily sedated, Nelson grinned broadly late Tuesday night when told he had rolled up an overwhelming victory ovcr'his two opponents, Charles Gerald Pope and John E. Tharp. Nelson, an incumbent .seeking his first full term, collected votes, almost 70 per cent 'of the total.

Is there any difference In me way the wine glass should be held? Also, Is there a certain type of glass to be used with dlftereil types ot wines? A. Yes to both, says Amy Vanderbilt. All wines should be served in clear, thin glasses. Table wines should be served In fairly large glasses, just under goblet size. The rim should be narrower than the base of Uie bowl with Uie exception of the V-shaped sherry glasses. Champagne glasses are best without hollow stems because the warmth from your hand warms the drink. Chilled white wine is grasped by the stem, red wine is drunk with tbe hand grasping the bowl. Q.
