Abortion jbiil may be killed ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) Gov. Nelson Rockefeller was con- fronted today with a challenge from the legislalure to make good on his threat to veto a measure that would virtually outlaw abortions in New York. There was no word on when Rockefeller would act on the bill, which he has scorned re- peatedly. The measure would abortions only when necesary lo save the life of the the standard that prevailed for a century in New York before the legislature liberalized the law in 1970 to permit elective abortions in the first 24 weeks of pregnancy. Terence Cardinal Cooke, Roman Catholic archbishop of New York, joined in the pres- sure for repeal of the 1970 stat- ute. Cubans whose jobs allow Ihcm to travel around the is- land see that Ihcre is growth. "See that factory? I was here .six monllis ago and il wasn't there." The factory was one built near Cienfuegos to make pre- fabricated cement slabs for building construction and the comment was made by a pho- tographer wilh whom I shared R ride on a lour of industrial find a.enniJlural siles in Die interior of the island. Cuban government publica- tions make the growth appear imoressive by making selec- tive comparisons with condi- tions under prc-Caslro admin- Mraticns Reduction of the il- literacy rate, increased avail- abilily of education facilities, improvements in the cattle herd and expansion of electri- cal Ciiuacilv are among ac- complishmenls about which the government boasts. But government officials frankly describe Cuba as a "sub-de- veloped nation." Every Cuban parlidnates in tlie drive lo develop the econ- omv because a strict rationing system ensures that most get only basic necessities. "Merit workers" get (lie few extras, such as television sets and sewing machines, that are available. Cubans who are critical of the Castro regime concede that there was not an equita- ble distribution of benefits under Ihe previous govern- ments but they contend that Ibis government has spread poverty evenly. The critics contend dial despite the cor- ruption Cubans were materi- ally Ijftler off and there was no starvation under the old administrations when United Stales investment was a major factor in the country's economy. CASINO BECOMES CLUB One who was bitterly crili- cal of the regime said "if 40 people barricaded a street and started yelling go home. Yankees come back.' everybody would follow Ihem.1' On a Havana side streel is a building that was once a ca- sino designed to appeal to Americans. The ground floor now Is a club where men play dominoes and drink beer. Un- like rum and cigars, beer seems to he readily available to Cubans and it is nol expen- sive. The plaster has long since fallen off the ceiling, the walls are crumbling, and win- dows and doors are missing. Rooms upstairs have been converted to tenement hous- ing. Because the water sys- tem is broken a rope on a pulley is used to pull up buck- ets tilled from the only faucet at ground level. "Every day it is very, very, very bad." one old man said. "Too many people are hun- gry." A man in lus middle 30s said "four or five million peo- ple would like lo leave." The country's population is 8.5 million. ItATIOXINC SKVKIIE The complaints were mainly about rationing and the old man displayed the end of his belt which showed by the creases in the leather thai it bad been laken in Hirer notches. The ralion for a ha'f-poi'ncl a week; for rice, six pounds a month; beans, six ounces a month; cigarelles, a package a week; coffee. I'.i ounces a week; and milk is available lo chil- dren only unlil (he age of three. The sugar ration was reduced in February to four pounds a month from sui. A nurse at a nursery near Havana said children at the nursery gel milk unlil the age of five Government figures show thai nursery capacity in 1970 was 40.3SB and the census counted 1.4 million children below age .six. Nurs- eries are for the children of Hie best workers. Government officials say it is not necessary lo be a Com- munist party member lo get the benefits available to merit workers but being a ''good revolutionary" i.s one of Ihe factors in EssigDjig merit points. There is a comitlee at each work centre wliich as- signs merit points and the committee is so structured that at least half jLs members musl be party members.

Captain Charles Simpson, CALPA president, told reporters afler the committee meeting that the proposal was a "very j positive recommendation to stop (the air piracy menace." CALPA was presenting a brief on amendments to the Criminal Code which would deal wilh a variety of matters including hi- jacking aircraft. CALPA also called on the committee to stretch the anli-hi- i jacking provisions to include aircraft on the ground before preparations for flight.
