New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - November 16, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas ERA loses in House; backers eye elections WASHINGTON (AP) — Defiant feminist groups say the Equal Rights Amendment rejected by the House will be revived, but in the meantime they’ll work to defeat every member who opposed it — especially Republicans “who orchestrated the loss.” But while feminist leaders pledged to wreak political vengeance on their opponents, the Republican who led Tuesday’s fight against the ERA said GOP lawmakers could defend their position. “I don’t fear taking it to the voters. ...” said Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., explaining that his constituents oppose federal financing of abortions and sending women into combat. The vote was 278-147 in favor of the ERA, six votes short of the two-thirds needed for approval of a constitutional amendment. TTiere were 223 Democrats and 53 Republicans who cast “yes" ballots, while 38 Democrats and 109 Republicans were opposed. Both sides of the ERA struggle si owed they’ve lost none of their spunk despite a decade-long battle over the words, “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.” Judy Goldsmith, president of the 250,000-member National Organization for Women, said, “NOW pledges to work, in 1984 and beyond, to defeat every member of Congress who opposes the ERA. “The Republican members of Congress who orchestrated the loss of the Equal Rights Amendment in the House of Representatives ... will face the wrath of their constituents at the polls next year,” she told a news conference. Opposing lobbyists were out in force and the galleries were nearly full for the debate, which centered on Republican claims that House members were "gagged" by a rule that limited debate to 40 minutes and choked off amendments. This left Republicans without the means to offer several riders, including one to ensure continued restrictions on government funds for abortions. Another was aimed at preventing women from being drafted and assigned to combat roles. The military argument was central to the first round of the ratification fight that in 1982 fell three states short of the 38 needed for approval. Both sides agreed the key to Tuesday’s result was the no-amendment rule, which House Speaker Thomas P. O’Neill, D-Mass., said he instituted "at the insistence of women’s organizations who want to find out who their friends are.” A spokeswoman for NOW, who spoke on condition she not be quoted by name, said feminist groups insisted on a vote this year because “we wanted to know who to target” for defeat before state filing deadlines early next year. She said NOW would run supporters for congressional seats held by ERA opponents. Cigars, pipes don't lower risks, expert says ANAHEIM, CaUf. (AP) - Cigarette smokers who switch to pipes or cigars may not reduce their risk of lung cancer and heart disease because they still smoke heavily and inhale deeply, a scientist says. The conclusion, he said, is that cigarette smokers shouldn't be encouraged to switch to pipes or cigars as an alternative But people who smoke a pipe or cigars and never smoked cigarettes usually are less disease-prone than the former cigarette smokers because they often don’t smoke or inhale as much, Dr. Aaron R. Folsom, a University of Minnesota research fellow, said Tuesday. Previous research found Uttle difference m disease risks between pipe and cigar smokers and cigarette smokers who switched because those studies failed to examine the number of pipe bowls or cigars smoked daily, said Folsom, who reported his findings at the American Heart Association's annual meeting. Folsom and his colleagues surveyed 9,106 male and female smokers in several communities in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. 450 jailed in nuclear protests I BINDON i AP» Police arrested more than 450 demonstrators during Britain's first full day as host to U.S. cruise missiles, and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher said a nuclear * balance of terror" was helping to preserve world peace. •Nuclear weapons have in fact prevented war," the Conservative Party leader said in a television interview broadcast by the British Broadcasting Corp on Tuesday night.    I “It is a balance of terror, but it has kept the peace.” At the U S Air Force base at Greenham Common, 50 miles west of London, dozens of women, just released on bail after being arrested at demonstrations, returned to their 26-inonth-old protest camp A second shipment of cruise missiles was apparently flown into the base Tuesday, 24 hours after the initial consignment. Press reports and the BBC said it was believed the nuclear warheads had arrived as well. Most of the Tuesday’s arrests were at Greenham and outside the House of Commons in london Groups of legislators left the building to watch demonstrators, mainly women, who had blockaded the main entrance being bundled into police trucks In the north England city of Manchester, Defense Secretary Michael Heseltine was sprayed with red paint as police battled to get him through hundreds of student demonstrators to address a Conservative students’ meeting at Manchester University. ‘Better red than dead, Michael,” one demonstrator shouted. Heseltine later said, “I’m very worried about the techniques and tactics of these protests groups. They are very anxious to get more publicity, but they are using methods abhorrent to the British people.” But opposition socialist Labor Party legislator Bob Clay complained in the Commons that police “abused” their powers by mass arrests of 300 demonstrators.

'November 17' group claims credit for Athens shooting ATHENS, Greece (AP) — A left-wing terrorist group suspected of killing a CIA official in Greece eight years ago has claimed responsibility for gunning down a U.S. naval attache and his civilian driver. An anonymous telephone caller to the leftist Athens newspaper Eleftherotypia said “November 17” had engineered the shootings. “We shall send you a file explaining why we carried out this killing,” police quoted the caller as saying. Navy Capt. George Tsantes, 53, head of the naval section at the Joint U.S. Military Advisory Group in Greece, a liaison unit with the Greek armed forces, was shot dead Tuesday morning as he drove to work at the U.S. Embassy. Police said that the shots were fired by one of two men on a motorcycle and that the attackers then escaped down a side street. The killers pulled alongside Tsantes’ official car when it stopped at a busy intersection on a suburban highway and pumped at least seven bullets through a closed window. “It was a very professional job. The scooter passenger shot surpisingly accurately with a .45 caliber magnum,” said a police spokesman who declined to be identified. Tsantes’ driver, Nikos Veloutsos, 62, from the Aegean island of Lesbos, died in a hospital of stomach wounds after a four-hour emergency operation. Police sources said the claim by “November 17” prompted investigators to focus on leftwing activists in Athens. In 1975, the terrorist group sent a detailed description of how it killed CIA station chief Richard Welch to several left-wing Greek publications. But it had not been heard from since claiming two shootings of Greek police officials in 1976 and 1980. The group takes its name from the date in 1973 when Greece’s military rulers used tanks and troops to quash a student rebellion at Athens Polytechnic University.
