(NEWSphotos by Fitzsimmons) Rock Festivals, Hippie-Hindu Feast, Brawls Mark Celebration By United Press International The Fourth of July used to be a time for parades, picnics and pyrotechnics but this year there also were rock festivals, a hippie-Hindu feast and some just plain brawls. The biggest of the youth gatherings was the Atlanta International Pop Festival which drew almost a half million members of the Wood- stock generation to a 300-acre soybean field at Byron, Ga. Local residents were stag- gered by the nude swimming, naked strollers, open fornica- tion and widespread use of drugs and Mayor Ed Green called the festival "the worst thing that ever happened to this area of the country." Other gatherings included: The Buffalo Party Convention and Pig Roast at Eatonville, Wash. Although it was banned by a court, 10.000 young people converged on a 650-acre Buffalo field to sunbathe, skinny dip and listen to music. One man died in a plunge over a waterfall and 60 persons were arrested for traffic and narco- tics offenses. The fourth annual Rathayatra Car Festival in San Francisco. About hippies and chanting, saffron-robed monks paraded from the Haight- Ashbury to the ocean with 50- foot-long juggernauts carrying wooden images of the "lord of the World" and his relatives.

IIRW Locals Still To Act On Contract The three Naugatuck locals of the United Rubber Workers Unions will vote this week on ratification or rejection of the new three year pact with Uniroyal, Inc. Votes must be taken by Local 45, Footwear Division; Local 218, Chemical Division, and Local 308, Synthetic Division. As of a late hour this morning, officials of Local 45 said they had not yet set a time, date and place for its vote. That local has the largest membership of the three in Naugatuck. The new contract, which was reached last Tuesday after negotiations since March 9, will cost the company an estimated million, according to Uniroyal spokesmen. Uniroyal's plants across the country had been threatened with a strike after the expiration of its former contract April 20. The URW permitted work to continue at the plants on a day to day basis, however, until the contract agreement had been reached. The company estimated that wage and fringe increases will amount to an hour per man over the next three years. This would surpass increases gained by the union from Goodyear, Goodrich and Firestone Rubber companies. The new pact was reached last week only after the union threatened to walk off the job at midnight Tuesday if the contract was not agreed to by that hour. Officials said they came to a verbal agreement just hours before the deadline. A military spokesman in Cairo said a dozen Israeli planes attacked Egyptian posi- tions at Ballah, Qantara, El- Hirsh, and El-Tina, all in the northern sector of the canal. He said Egyptian "air defense methods engaged the attacking aircraft" but gave no other details. Authoritative Israeli newspa- pers reiorted Russian-built SAM2 missile sites springing up like mushrooms along the canal, indicating greater and greater Soviet involvement in the area. Israeli source said the missile have shot down three Israeli planes in the past week. Egypt says six were shot down. Israel also was having its troubles in the occupied Gaza Strip which juts along the Mediterranean coast toward the canal. Saboteurs today blew up the only ice cream plant in Gaza City, an Arab-owned plant. A spokesman said the saboteurs used about 88 pounds of explosives to collapse the factory and heavily damage the machinery. An Arab woman was wounded Sunday when a grenade was hurled at an Israeli bus and two Israeli soldiers were wounded when their vehicle hit another explosive charge. An Arab caught breaking the curfew was shot and wounded by an Israeli army patrol. Jordanian and Israel forces dueled with mortars and machineguns in the Jordan Valley Sunday night. Egyptian air defense units said they shot down two Israeli jets Sunday and captured their pilots, but the Israelis said they had lost only one two-seater Phantom. Heavy artillery barrages also were reported along the Suez Canal as well as on the Jordan front Sunday. In the Jordanian capital of Amman, both Premier Abdel Monem Rifai and Palestinian guerrilla sources denied reports they had reached an agreement to settle their month-old feud. Israeli military spokesman also reported three incidents in the Gaza Strip that resulted in an Arab man, an Israeli woman Please turn to Page 10 Borough Officials Facing Busy Week By JOHN F. SIMS BELFAST, Northern Ireland (UPI) TBritish troops today lore down barricades they used to control the Roman Catholic Falls Road section of Belfast where five died in weekend rioting. But a Roman Catholic member of the province Parli- ament predicted all-out war with Protestants this summer.

HOSPITAL NOTES Joel Nitowski, 9, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Nitowski, 99 Irving St., is a surgical patient at Yale- New Haven Hospital. Jim Miller, 19, 75 Cedar Cir., Beacon Falls, is a medical patient in Griffin Hospital, Derby. Stanley Jaskiewtcz Jr. is a surgical patient in St. Raphael's Hospital in New Haven. George W. Brockman, Jr., 262 North Main St., is a medical patient at St. Mary's Hospital. Mrs. William Carrington, Jones Road, is a medical patient at St. Mary's Hospital. Army spokesmen gave no reason for removing the barricades, but they ended a 33- hour curfew of the area at 9 a.m. Sunday to let the Catholic go to Mass. The area stayed relatively quiet. By official count, five died and 58 were injured in 12 hours of fighting between Catholics and troops that started Friday night after the army and police began searching houses for arms and ammunition. The deaths brought the toll in two successive weekends of rioting to 12. More violence was expected even though there are now more than British troops in Northern Ireland. There were predictions more violence would erupt as a result this Sunday of Protestant Orange Order celebrations of the 17th century Battle Of the Boyne when the Catholics were defeated for control of Ireland. The Protestants insist on marching through Catholic res- idential areas, and the Catho- lics have been stocking arms. Army house-thouse searches in Catholic areas so far have turned up over 100 weapons rounds of ammunition, 100 firebombs and 25 pounds of explosives. The searches touched off the violence Friday night. YOUTH DROWNS PLYMOUTH, Mass. (UPI) James F. Small, 19, of Duxbury drowned Sunday in Cape Cod Bay just off Powder Point Bridge.
