High court to decide if US can sue on draft sign-up

The Supreme Court agreed Tuesday to consider whether the government may single out vocal rHsisters of military draft registration for prosecution. The court is expected to decide sometime by July a legal controversy from Minnesota related to the registration law. That case deals with whether the government may deny federal aid to male college students who cannot prove they fulfilled their registration obligation.

The court also:

* Agreed to decide whether The Nation magazine violated copyright law when it printed information from former President Gerald Ford's memoirs before the book was published.

* Agreed to review a dispute between the federal government and the Western Shoshone Indians over 24 million acres of Nevada and California land.

* Rejected the appeal of a homosexual British businessman, a Texas resident for 19 years, who was denied US citizenship because of a federal law excluding aliens with a ''sexual deviation.''
