Uiiilcd Nations Secretary- General Kurt Waldheiui on Tuesday appeale die the coun- cil to refrain from further exe- cnlions for humanitarian rea- sons. In a cable to the council WaUlheim said the internation- al community feels anxiety over "reports that a similar Texan Armstrong Said Resigning WASHINGTON (A P) Presidenlial counselor Anne Armstrong, top-ranking wom- an in Ihe Ford and Nixon ad- ministrations, is leaving her While House post by Jan. 1, sources say. Mrs. Armstrong went home to her. Texas ranch for Thanksgiving after a meeting Tuesday wilh President Ford. It was later learned that though tlie meeting with Ford was on business matters, Mrs. Armstrong's desire lo leave the administration for person- al reasons had already been conveyed lo the President. By ihe end of the year, Mrs. Amrslrong will have- scn'ed nearly (wo years in Ihe 500 a-year counselor's job that former President Ttichavd jr. Nixon gave her with Cabinet rank. She had been co-chairman of the Republican National Committee from January 1971 unlil she started Hie White House job Jan. 13, 1973. Mrs. Armstrong has been' given a wide range of assign- ments in domestic fields, in- cluding the bicentennial. and areas of special interest lo women. She promoted "passage of [he Equal Rights' Amendment' and recruitment of women 'to top level posts in government, a project thai recently lias been lagging at the White House. There was no immediate in- dication whether Ford plans lo replace .Mrs. Amrslrong with another .woman in tliat post. fate may await remaining de- tainees." Sheik Aboud Jumbo, presi- dent of Zanzibar, warned thai Ihe7 executions could trigger civil war in Elliopia. He told newsmen in Nairobi, Kenya, where he was departing for a six-nalion lour ot the Middle East, "We are not happy about the executions and will never support killings of this nature." i He said he hopes good sense will prevail in Ethiopia "and prevent that country going over the precipice. Africa hus no need for any more civil wars." In London the crown prince of Ethiopia, Asfa Wossen, called last weekend's execu- tions "n mockery of justice" and "an affront lo all Ethiopi- ans, young and old, who are struggling to create a just sys- lem in our country." The 58-year-old son of the deposed emperor, who was de- signated by Ihe military coun- cil last September lo become a [igurchead king, said lie was "h o r r i f i e d and deeply grieved" by' Hie executions] lie said the wrongs of Ihe pasl should be corrected but not used as grounds' for "unpro- ductive vengeance." The crown prime, who hns lived in Geneva since 1972, was in London to visit his son', a student at Oxford Universi- ty, lie made no commcnl on any danger to the life of his .father. At a news conference in Bei- rut the rebel movement in the Ethiopian province of Eritrea called for a U.S. arms embar- go against Elhiopia. Osman Kaleh Sabbi, headiflf the Erilrean Liberation Front, said he made the appeal "in the inleresl of preserving peace in the Tied Sea." Democrat Winner In N. H. Recount N.1I. (AP) Democrat John A. .Durkin, a former stale insurance com- missioner and self-styled con- sumer advocate, has won the recount of New Hampshire's U.S. Senate'race by 10 votes. Secretary of State Robert L. Stark said- today the' recount of the closest statewide race in New Hampshire history showed that Durkin received votes to for U.S. Rep. Louis C. Wyman, a Republican. Wyman had gone into the recount 542 votes ahead in official, returns. Stark would certify riurkin 'as Hie election win- ner with the Secretary of the U.S. Senale. Any appeal first would go lo the stale Ballot Law Commis- sion, but Ihe decision on a winner might ultimately be up to the Senate ilself.
