Winona Daily News (Newspaper) - May 29, 1969, Winona, Minnesota More Public School Integration Expected for South in September NEW ORLEANS (AP) More public school integration in September for the Deep South is expected in the wake of a'fed- eral appeals court directive that school boards' "act affirmative- ly to abolish all vestiges of state-imposed segregation of the races." "Integration of faculty is of equal. added the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Ap- peals in a decision Wednesday emphasizing that the freedom- of-choice method of school de- segregation must show results now or be replaced by another method. Some lower federal courts in the 5th Circuit-Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas and the Canal have told school Wards to aban- don freedcm-of-choice in favor ot more workable plans to end their dual school systems. The ruling by the New Or- leans-based 5th Circuit came a year after (he May 28, 1968 U.S.' Supreme Colirt decision saying school boards must "come ward with a plan ihat promises realistically to work, and prom- ises realistically to work now." Guidelines for school integra- tion cases laid down by the 5th Circuit are usually embraced by other circuit courts. The court Wednesday told 37 Louisiana districts where frce- dom-of-choice plans had been approved by lower federal courts thai new plans "shall be completed and approved" by July 25. "Unqueslionably as now con- stituted administered and oper- ating in these districts frce- dom-of-choice is not said the appeals court. Freedom ot choce lets a pupil decide which school to altend. Bill Dodd, the slate education superintendent, said the deci- sion "will have a very, very bad effect on public schools." Educators, not lawyers and judges; should decide the best methods of achieving unitary systems, said Dodd. Here is a rundown tfn the situ- ation in other states in the un- der Slh Circuit jurisdiction. the support o! Gov. Albert Brewer, all schools operate under freedom-of-choice plans. Dr. Raymond Christian, Alabama Education Association president and Birmingham school superintendent, said the latest rulinj "doesn't look good for cases on appeal" to the 5th Circuit.

Ray Williams said thai county would fight for its plan "clear to the top court." some instances, federal courts have upheld free- dom-of-dioice but there is no clearcul pattern for school inte- gration. 5th Circuit has been asked Id overturn a ruling by three federal 'district judges that freedom-of-choice was permissable for 33 school districts in south Mississippi.

A statement that the area is a continuing peril by a New York congressman was described by the commander, Brig. Gen. John G. Appel, as "a case of making a big thing out of noth- ing." "The only way a person could possibly contract pulmonary an- thrax at the site would be to dig into" the dirt and eat said Appel. Anthrax, most commonly found in cattle or sheep, is caused by a persistent bacte- rium which reproduces through the development of spores. The disease may .be contracted by human beings who handle parts of infected animals fK breathe in spores from the animals hair, and, can attack the lungs with fatal effect. Appel said anthrax germs cause the fatal lung disease pnl; when a massive dose is inhalei and "this is very rare." He said the test site at the Dugway Proving Ground ii Western Utah was deliberatel: contaminated 15 years ago b; spreading about a teacup full o' bacteria over an area 100 yards Rep. Richard D. McCarthy D-N.Y., asserted Wednesda' "this anthrax-ridden .area ii Utah poses hazards td wildlif and to humans moving in anc out of the area." McCarthy said British bioch emical experts planted anthra: germs on the Scottish island o Gruinard early in World War 1 and In 1966 reported the islan was still contaminated "an probably will remain cdmam: nated for ,100 years." Appel said tests show the or ganisms penetrate deeper int ground each year and whil the soil remains contaminate! the danger of contracting thrax from it decreases. TUICIA TAKES THE SPOTLIGHT..

(AP Photofax) 50 REDS KILLED Enemy Strategy Meeting Crashed SAIGON (AP) U.S. forces crashed an enemy strategy meeting 28 miles northwest of Saigon today during a 43-hour cease-fire the Viet Cong had proclaimed in honor of Bud- dha's birthday. The enemy cease-fire began at 7 a.m. Allied forces were lo start a 24-hour truce period at 6 a.m. Friday (5 p.m. CST Thurs- Meanwhile, mote than 50 allied operations of battalion size or larger continued without letup. At least 50 Viet Cong were re- ported killed in the action north- west of Saigon. Initial reports said one American was killed and seven wounded. "They were congregating in there for (heir stand-down peri- said a U.S. military spokesman. "We had intelli- gence information they were going to be in there for a meet- ing to plan actions for their summer campaign next month. We weren't slanding down." It was a sparsely settled farm area of scattered houses, rice paddies and bamboo hedgerows. Military spokesmen said an American plane with a loud- speaker Slew over, urging the Viet Cong (o surrender and call ing on the rest of the people lo move out. The spokesmen said about 200 women and children moved out, but the Viet Cong started shoot- ing with machine guns and rocket grenades. The enemy troops were entrenched in fight- ing holes. Mote than 700 infantrymen Violent Protests BOGOTA, Columbia CAP) Violent student ued to dog Gov. Nelson A. Rock- efeller's mission to Latin Ameri- ca as he prepared to move on to Ecuador, today. Police used clubs and tear gas Wednesday to quell disorders here and in four provincial cit- ies. At least 95 persons were in- jured during the second-day of anti-U.S. demonstrations that triggered the visit of President Nixon's special envoy. Bogota police drove student demonstrators from one univer- sity campus after officials of the school called them in. At the National University, about 100 students threw rocks and blocked streets, but university authorities did not call the po- lice in. Large.groups of students also clashed with police in MedeUin, Colombia's second largest city, and in Barranquilla, Call and Pereira. The students blocked downtown streets, stoned cars and broke store windows. While helmeted police patrolled the streets of the Co- lombian capital, Rockefeller met with President Carlos Ller- as Restrepo, Foreign Minister Alfonso Lopez Michelsen and with business and labor leaders. by newsmen about the disturbances in the streets, Gore: Arms Control Talks May Beat Debate on ABM WASHINGTON (AP) Sen. Albert Gore says it is "entirely1 possible" U.S. arms control talks with the Soviet Union will begin before the Senate opens debate on the hotly contested Safeguard missile defense pro- gram. The Senate showdown is ex- pected to start late in it could run most of the sum- mer. Gore, the Tennessean Demo- crat who heads the Senate dis- armament subcommittee, indi- cated in an interview he had heard new reports on adminis- tration plans for the long-await- ed arms talks. But he said there was nothing he could publicly disclose. "There's no reason that I know of why the talks shouldn't get said Senate Major- ity Leader Mike Mansfield, D- Mont. Gore, like other critics of President Nixon's Safeguard missile defense plan, wants it dropped while the United States seeks to negotiate an arms con- trol agreement with the Soviet Union. While the administration in- sists anliballislic missile would not impede arms control efforts, Senate foes of the plan insist it would. "Our goal is to defeat this Gore said. "Intrinsically, this one is important, but sym- bolically, it's even more impor- tant." Military officials have been reported urging a delay in the start of arms controls talks, no1 so much because of the Safe- guard issue, but due to their hopes lo have tests first of mis- siles capable of carrying multi- warheads. Mansfield, also an ABM crit- ic, said debate and decision on the administration plan could dominate the Senate calendar from late June until Aug. 13, when Congress is to. begin a three-week recess. Mansfield said in an interview he still hopes some compromise can avert a long, bitter Senate contesl. But he acknowledged he does not know what its terms might be. Sen. Everett M. Dirksen, the Republican leader, has repeat- edly declared the adminis I ra- tion has no intention of altering its program. Another major foreign policy issue is due up before Safe- guard. A resolution which wouit have the Senate declare that Congress, as well as the execu- tive branch of government must act on any U.S. commit ment to a foreign government. The Nixon administration, while promising frequent am full consultation with Congress is opposed to the resolution. The measure is due before the Senate on June 16. Dirksen manitains the admin istration will win Senate approv al of a start on the ABM sys tern. Mansfield acknowledges sup- porter of the system may win a narrow victory no more than three votes. iockefeller said: "This is some- hing that has been happening everywhere in the world, indud- ng the United States." The governor told a news conference that cuts in U.S. aid o Latin America are necessary 'because the budget has a very arge deficit and there is an in- lalionary trend which is very dangerous." Informants said Lleras told Rockefeller that Colombia needs nore U.S. aid "with longer 'erms and less difficult condi- :ions." Lleras has complained in the past about the require- ment that the bulk of U.S., aid money be spent in Ihe United States. Rockefeller is on the second of four survey tours in Latin America. From Ecuador he faes to Bolivia, Venezuela ant rinid ad-Tobago.

The jet belt can fly for minutes and miles, but the exact time and distance are a secret. (AP Photofax) Deferments Get Military Check WASHINGTON (AP) The armed services are putting into effect a Defense Department policy providing that reservists or National Guardsmen who goldbrick can be called to active duty for up to two years. Affected by the get-tough poli- cy are young men who were de- ferred from the draft by joining the National Guard or reserves. In the past, the penalty for failing to meet drill and training obligations was a 45-day "invol- untary" active duly tour. This apparently wasn't stiff enough to wipe out malingering' so the Defense Department de- creed a tougher policy earlier this year. Now any man found "unsatis- factory" in carrying out his re- serve obligations may be called to active duty for up to two years. Each of the services is putting the policy into effect, with the Air Force the latest lo move. Under the law, young men may enlist in the guard or re serves, receive from four to 10 months of training, and then re- turn home. However, they are obligatec lo drill regularly with thei: units. The overall obligatioi lasts six years, counting the ini tial training time.. In this way, a young man ca escape being drafted for tw years of fulltime service unles there is an emergency callup as happened to some guardsmen and reservists las year after the North Korean se zure of the intelligence shi Pueblo and the enemy winter o: fensive in Vietnam. The emphasis used to be o faithful attendance at drills which normally are held o weekends.

But he said they figured .only a mall a platoon of 40 going to be sent in, and the Viet Cong ilanned to ambush them. South Vietnamese headquar- :ers said it had received no re- )orts of major Viet Cong viola- ions of their cease-fire by mid- afternoon, but a spokesman em- phasized that he expected Inert would be some. During the last cease-fire for Buddha's birthday 'n 1967, the U.S. Command ac- cused the Viet Cong of 17 viola- tions in which 12 Americana were killed and 57 wounded. There was no cease-fire in 1968 because the Communist Com- mand was waging an offensive. The allied command also an- nounced that casualties last week receded from the high lev- el o{ the week before, with 265 Americans, 413 South Viet- namese government troops and Viet Cong and North Viet- namese reported killed in ac- tion. The totals the week were 430 Americans, 527 South Vietnamese and enemy. A total of Americans were reported wounded last week, compared with tht week before. The U.S. Command reported 11 enemy rocket and mortar at- tacks that caused casualties or damage during the night prior to the start of the Viet Cong cease-fire. The command said casualties and damage were light over-all. NO PAPER FRIDAY As has been its cus- tom for many years, the Daily News will omit publication Fri- day, Memo rial Day.

ON USE OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS Laird, NATO Colleagues Discuss Arms Guidelines LONDON (AP) U.S. De- fense Secretary Melvin R. Laird and six NATO colleagues opened talks today on guidelines for (he use of nuclear weapons in Europe to protect the North Atlantic allies. The defense ministers of the United States, Britain, West Germany, Italy, Belgium, Tur- key and Denmark had before them a lop secret study by Brit- ain and West Germany on how the NATO nuclear might sta- tioned in Europe can be used best to deter a Soviet attack. Earlier British research showed that use of NATO's tac- lical nuclear weapons on a Eu- ropean battlefield and the Soviet retaliation that would probably follow would devastate the area. Friend They Knew to Have Flowers Boys Give That Soldier Will Not Be Forgotten BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) Memorial Day flowers placed on the grave of Sgt. Richard T. Campos will be paid for by part of the al- lowances of young Mark and David Huey who never heard of the soldier until his death. Each week for two years, Mark, and David, 12, have "put some of their money in a lillle jar we call 'Richard's Flower their mother, Mrs. Lucian C. Huey, said. Then early in the morn- ing of each Memorial Day, Veterans Day, the soldier's birthday anniversary and Ihe anniversary of his death in Vietnam, a floral com- pany in San Bruno, Calif., puts a wreath on the grave in Golden Gate National Cemetery in San Francisco. The bill goes to Mr. and Mrs. Huey of Birmingham. "I usually have to add something to the boys' mon- ey to pay the Mrs. Huey said. Mr. and Mrs. Huey unof- ficially adopted Campos in 196V after reading that his body lay unclaimed for two weeks in Oakland Army Terminal in late 1966. Campos was reared as an orphan and was a ward of Ihe court when he enlisted in the Army at age 17. His body finally was claimed by an uncle who had not seen him in 15 years. "My family was touched when we read that all his life he wanted to belong, to have a Mrs. Huey said. They tried to adopt him posthumously so "he would have a family (o re- member him." But they found this was legally im- possible. Mark said at the time: "If no one else wants him, he can be a member of our family." Huey, 3 machine company superintendent, and his wife have made entries in the family Bible making Camp- os a member of their fam- ily. They sponsor a (lag in his honor in the Avenue of Flags in nearby Irondale. Mrs. Huey said: "Both of our sons are adopted, and they know what it means to belong and to be loved." When accounts of Ihe Hueys' plan for flowers ap- peared in West Coast news- papers, she said, several people in California sent pictures of Ihe grave to her and wrote that they were putting flowers there also. And others sent her maps of the city and the ceme- tery pointing out where the grave is located. Mrs. Norate DeSa of San Leandro, Calif., whose hus- band is in the Canal Zone with the Army, places flow- ers at the grave periodical- ly and corresponds with the Hueys. The possibility Ihat West Ger- many would be the battlefield spurred the search for alterna- iive tactics that might deter the Russians from an attack. One suggestion was explosion of a "demonstration bomb" in an area where it could do little harm. The idea would be to warn the Soviets the West was prepared (o use nuclear weap- ons if necessary. Other proposals included use of maritime nuclear explo- sions and atomic land mines on possible Soviet invasion routes. British Defense Minister Den- is Healey, who co-authored the British-German study, has said thai in the event of a major So- viet attack, NATO would to surrender or use nuclear weapons within a few days be- cause of the superior conven- tional striking force of the So- viet bloc. He says Ihis superiori- ty is more than to 1 in infantry formations, nearly 2 to 1 in air craft, and nearly 3 to 1 in ar- mored units. Healcy has called for an In- crease in conventional NATO striking forces. But Canada is planning to bring home two- thirds of its force in Europe by 1972, and U.S. offi- cials fear other allies will re- duce Ihcir commitments to NATO. ;
