Ethiopia revolt grows more violent ASMARA (AP) Ethiopia's quiet revolution has grown more violent with the awakening of the landless peasants who have joined students, workers and mutinous troops in de- manding democratic change. Loyal army units appear to have bought time for the foundering government to try to carry out promised reforms that might appease Emperor Haile Selassie's restive sub- jects. More than a month of mili- tary mutinies, strikes and civilian disorders have robbed the 81-year-old emperor of most of his autocratic powers. The Lion of Judah sits on a largely symbolic throne, surrounded by a frightened clique of nobles and officials whose corruption has finally caught up with them. After dismissing one cabinet at the end of February. Selassie and the new government had to Olympic Lottery Canada Loterie Olympique Canada P O BOX 1444 STATION A TORONTO ONTARIO MSWU?

Last week, the unrest spread from the cities to the countryside in a series of riots by peasants demanding land and the dismissal of corrupt provincial officials. The police and army responded with gunfire, and many peasants were killed or wounded. Selassie was. forced to make more concessions. REFORM PROMISED To appease dissident military units occupying Asmara. ise appointed a military-civilian commission to investigate corruption in "past and present gov- ernments." To appease the peasants, he ordered the cabi- net to study land reform. On Friday; Parliament jumped on the reform band- wagon with a discussion-of '.'the need to replace inefficient and dishonest province On Saturday. Premier .'Eh? dalkachew Makonnen promised to dismiss- an unspecified provincial officials. If Endalkachew 's government, carries out the emperor's promises, it would change the entire economic and social structure of Ethiopia and end the feudal domination of the small landed aristocracy. But skeptics point out that many members of this privileged class still are in the government, including the premier. They also say that Ethiopia's economic problems and the continuing guerrilla war against the Eritrean Liberation Front (ELF) in the northernmost province might prove insurmountable. The ELF has tied up-an army division and two air force squadrons for 10 years, and now the guerrillas are stepping up their insurgency to take advantage of the country-wide discontent. There are no current reserves for the promised pay raises. Rumors abound that the government has started printing paper money without gold to back it up. This would aggravate the rampant inflation that touched off the St. Laurent grandson an attorney FORT MYERS, Fla.
