The court s action came on a motion by the Justice department for quot expedited review of the constitutionality of the Flag Protection act of 1969 a passed by Congress last year to reverse a High court ruling. In a Brief order Friday the court said that written arguments on the Case should be received by the court before noon March 26. That would enable the court to decide the Case before its summer recess assuming the justices agree to hear it. However the court gave no other indication of its intentions and the Case could be put off until the 1990-1991 term beginning in october. The court also could simply affirm court rulings that struck Down the Law without granting Oral arguments. Federal judges in both Seattle and Washington have thrown out cases of people charge under the Law citing last years 5-4 supreme court ruling in a Case from Texas that burning the Flag As a political protest is protected by the first amendment guarantee of free speech. When the High court ruled in that Case last june president Bush began a push for a constitutional amendment to protect the Flag. Instead Congress passed the new Law despite arguments from Bush and others that any such Law would be struck Down.

The january quot finding was a new version of a previous document signed by Reagan that explicitly linked the secret arms sales to release of the hostages. Poindexter 53, is accused of five felony counts of lying to Congress and obstructing its investigation of the scandal by destroying documents and withholding information. Retired Marine it. Col. Oliver North testified earlier that the chronologies were altered at the orders of Robert Mcfarlane a former National Security adviser who had left the government.

The Senate could vote on the Bill As soon As tuesday. Gov. Cecil Andrus has not indicated whether he would sign the Bill if it is passed by the Senate. The National right to life committee said it hoped the Bill would prompt the supreme court to overturn its landmark 1973 Roe is. Wade decision legalizing abortion.

Freedom Means Choice a group claiming 10,000 members statewide said its polls show that 63 percent of Idaho voters want women and their families to make decisions about abortion not the legislature. The supreme court last july paved the Way for state Legislatures to pass restrictions on abortion with the Webster v. Reproductive health service inc. Ruling.
