October 13. 1972 t Seeti^. 32 fH^itt Congress pushing toward adiournnnent WASHINGTON (AP) - Inching toward final adjournment, Congress planned to tackle several major bills today but it appeared likely that two of them would delay the end of the session until early next week. The legislators had intended to adjourn the 92nd session by Saturday. But no settlement seemed probable before Monday or Tuesday on ' the Social Securitywelfare bill now in a House-Senate conference committee, and the $250 billion spending ceiling President Nixon had requested. Both houses extended the Thursday sessions into the night in an effort to whittle down the last-min-ute crush. The House passed the compromise f74.3-billlon defense appropriations bill, one of the largest in history. The Senate planned to vote on It today and send it to the President. The House cleared the compromise revenue-sharing bill and sent it to the Senate which plans to pass it on to Nixon this afternoon. The measure would distrib- Biioxi's 406 club closed by court order The 406 Club at Biloxi is closed by court order. Harrison County Prosecutor William L. Stewart said other gambling places will be closed if he is furnished sufficient evidence for action. But the prosecutor said gambling is primarily a local police problem. The Magnolia street 406 Club was ordered closed In a decree signed Thursday by Chancellor Frank W. Alexander at chancery court in Biloxi. The decree was agreed upon Stewart and defendants named in a petition for a permanent injunction against the club, filed by the prosecutor last week. Alexander ordered an end to gambling at the club and ordered its owners and operators to halt any illegal activity there. The converted frame house at 406 Magnolia St. was reported dark Thursday night. Defendants in the case w'ere Peter Joseph Martino; his brother Warren Luke Martino; Larry Romeo and M. N. Mickoul. Alexander's order listed Peter Joseph Martino as owner and manager. It said the club was under "control and management" also of Warren Luke Martino and Larry Romeo. It listed Mickoul as owner of the property and stated he had no part in operation and maintenance of the club. The four defendants were perpetually enjoined by Alexander from conducting any operation on the premises of the club Involving gaming or gambling of any nature. Stewart had asked for a permanent order against the Martlnos prohibiting them to ever again operate gaming in the country. This order did not go into the final decree. He told reporters Friday morning that a state investigation he had requested had ended in July, and that lack of more recent evidence prevented him from pressing for the permanent action against the operators at other locations in the future. 14b an<H that n D(>t<tion for an in junction was always hied to get immediate action against activities "going on now." He said a time lapse while the investigative report was held up in Jackson did not give him last-minute evidence to warrant the permanent action individually against the defendants, except at the 408 club. However, he said if the defendants enter gambling in other locations there would be no problem in getting an Immediate court order...if he is furnished enough evidence. The prosecutor said evidence in such cases is always a problem. Without it, an-agency cannot act. Turning to other gambling activities reportedly going on in the county, Stewart was asked if he would move against them. "This is a police job," he said. "Laws place gambling under control of the local police. It is their province, not mine." However, he added that if he is furnished sufficient evidence to move ig Unst any gambling activity, he will act. Revenue measure due vote WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate tentatively scheduled a vote today . that could send $2.65 billion—the first installment in a $30-billlon revenue-sharing program—flowing to states, cities and other local governments. If the Senate passes the bill, as is expected. President Nixon is certain to sign it. The five-year revenue-sharing measure is a key element in his "new federalism" program. The Treasury, without waiting for passage, has been working for weeks on preparations for mailing 39,000 checks, scheduled to go out TheWörid Tödav SAPPORO, Japan (AP) — The Maritime Safety Agency reported today that a 77-ton Japanese fishing boat with 17 crewmen was missing about 600 miles west of northern Japan. Officials said the No. 81 Yahata-Maru signaled an SOS Thursday night while 5S-mile winds prevailed in the area. A search plane today spotted what appeared to be material from the boat. SAIGON (AP) — Four prisoners of war were killed and 14 others escaped in a melee with South Vietnamese military police guards on the prison island of Phu Quoc, military officials said today in a delayed report on the incident. There were no casualties among the guards, the spokesman said. COPENHANGEN, Denmark (AP) — Terrorists purporting to be Palestinian guerrillas threatened today to blow up a Copenhagen railway station unless they were paid the Kroner equivalent of $62,000. The Danish State Railways closed the Os-terport station and cancelled all trains running through it until shortly after noon, the time set for the explosion. KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) - Six Thias, three of them policemen in plain clothes, were killed by Malaysian soldiers Thursday night when they walked into a jungle ambush set up for Communist Guerrillas. The incident occurred In a territory which Malaysians ean enter only during the Aav tvlfh a anoHal. n«rmit NEW YORK (AP) — A federal undercover agent and two men identified by officiala as suqwcted concaine dealers were shot to death in a West Side motel Thursday night when a tr^ laid by narcotics agents backfired. A supervisory agent was Avalfl/tallv urAiiiulAfl ute 130 billion in federal funds to the state and local governments over five years. The spending-ceiling measure Thursday was cleared by the Senate Finance Committee for floor debate. Thè panel's 8-8 tie vote blocked efforts to put restrictions on Nixon's power to cut federal programs to stay within the 1250-billion ceiling he seeks for the current fiscal year. The legislation was scheduled for consideration by the full Senate this afternoon. Democrats said they would continue the fight to put some limits on the bill's broad grant of authority to the President. As the bill passed the House, the President could cut any program by any amount he chooses, to hold spending to the $250 billion limit. Sen. Russell B. Long, D-La., Finance Committee chairman, said he believes the Social Security-welfare bill would force the session into next week if nothing else did. Conferees today were to conduct their third meeting in an effort to resolve conflicts between the House and Senate versions of the 989-page bill. The Louisiana senator, head of the Senate conference delegation, said many decisions remain, but that an agreement seemed likely by Monday or Tuesday. The Senate shelved a bitterly disputed antibusing bill Thursday and thus shunted aside one of the biggest obstacles to adjournment. A third attempt to shut off debate on the bill failed to muster the needed two-thirds majority and Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield moved to put the measure aside. His motion carried 59 to 26. The bill, passed by the House Aug. 18, would have put an end to almost all busing for schooldese-gregatlon purposes. The Senate Thursday night passed the final money bill of the session, a |9.2-billion catch-all appropriations measure, and sent it to conference Witti th< Hoote. A |2.S-bflllon inlUtai7 oottÈtetm-tion appn^riatioiis bill was passed by both bouses and aent to the President. The Senate passed and sent to conference with thei- House a |3.2-billIon measure extending economic development programs for two years. Included in it are authorizations of $800 million a year for the next two years for public-works grants to areas with high unemployment. The House passed a $4.3-billlon appropriations bill for the State, Commerce and Justice departments and the Senate planned to rom Diete action on it todav. Bank ups prime interest NEW YORK (AP) - First National City Bank, the nation's second largest commercial bank, announced today it will increase its floating prime Interest rate to 5 % per cent beginning Monday. Citibank thus becomes the first major bank to exceed the 5% per cent prime rate level, to which banks began moving In late September. Citibank's boost, If it spreads, ' would bring the prime rate to its highest level since July 1971, when it was 6 per cent. The move to 5% per cent — which was also announced today by a smaller Pittsbui^gh bank with a floating prime, Mellon National Bank k Trust Co. — comes on the heels of government statements earlier this week expressing concern over the recent rise in interest rates. Arthur F. Burns, head of the Federal Reserve Board and chairman of the government's Committee on Interest and Dividends, said Thursday his committee plans to keep a close watch on bank earnings In view of this upward climb in interest. The prime rate is the minimum interest a bank charges its best corporate customers. Floating prime rates are linked to changes in sliort-tenn money market rates and adjusted automatically, while fixed prime rates used by most banks are adjusted administratively. Citibank said its prime rate increase today was linked to a rise in money market rates. The incresses have led to specu-laUon Ihat the Nixon administra-tioa might try to hold rates down, first by persuasion, and then by controls if necessary. The eeonomlc stabilisation law ^»proved by Congress earlier in the year permits the President to trlmr controls on interest rates Geis gold foofh.

L,e Due Republicans sabotaged campaign, Muskie says WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Edmund S. Muskie says his campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination was riddled with an "astonishing series" of incidents of apparent espionage and sabotage. Though sidestepping accusing specific individuals, the Maine Democrat and his staff suggested Thursday that Republicans were to blame. Muskie said he has not ruled out the possibility of filing suit against the Committee for the Re-election of the President and certain White House officials linked in published reports of alleged sabotage. The occurrences labeled suspicious by the Muskie staff peaked during the period the senator was considered the frontrunner for the nomination subsequently won by Sen. George McGovern. The Incldente dropped off when Muskie's campaign faltered. The list released by the Muskie staff included possible cases of wiretapping, stolen documents, forged campaign literature, false news releases, and bogus telephone callD arousing voters In the middle of the night. The list was prefaced with the not been thoroughly investigated and were "not intended at this time as charges against any individual or group." John T. McEvoy, the senator's administrative assistant, said the incidents "were not undertaken in the spirit of fun. They were undertaken to destroy a candidate." Muskie said. "Over the past 18 months, there have been a number of inexplicable incidents that seem to us to be inevitably involved with somebody's sabotage efforts." In a related development, Chairman Wright Patman was stymied in efforts to conduct House Banking Committee hearings on financial aspects of the investigation of the break-in and alleged bugging of Democratic headquarters in the Watergate building. Republicans on the committee boycotted the session Thursday, as did the four White House and re-election committee officials who Patman, D-Tex., had Invited to testify. But one of those Patman sought to question, Maurice H. Stans, was ordered to appear in a Miami court to testify in the trial of Bernard L. Barker, one of the seven men indicted in the Watergate case.

The President then shifted the subject to this Thursday trip to Atlanta telling his breakfast guests "it was a beautiful day. "The skyline today you wouldn't know," he told Rogers as they discussed previous Atlanta visits. He referred to the city's universities and professional sports teams and added this observation about the New South: "Everybody is upbeat." When photographers were present a fifth chair at the table was empty. Aides said that would be occupied by H. R. Haldeman, one of Nixon's top assistants. Kissinger and Halg, upon arriving Thursday night from Paris at nearby Andrews Air Force Base, would say nothing to newsmen. The two went directly to the White House for an initial report to Nixon. A White House source said he knew of no immediate plans to disclose what has gone on in the negotiations. So far Nixon has said only that "the negotiations are at a sen- ■Itlv* Btnm " Spocennen to take showers NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) -Astronauts on the Skylab mission will be able to wash that space dust right out of their hair with a shower system designed for zero-gravity environment. When the Bkylab workshop Is placed In orbit next year, astronauts Charles Conrad Jr., Dr. Joseph P. Kerwln and Paul J. Weita wilt be able to take earth-type shower baths, thanks to the Ingenuity of researchers at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Langley Research Center. The shower cubicle, according to John B. Hall Jr. of LRC, is a col-lapslable fabric arrangwient which will be anchored to the spaceship's deck and opened only when needed to save space for the number of other experiments niannorf iltitHnir th* vantiir«. Water, in zero gravity environment, presented special problems. Instead of flowing downward, the water sticks to the person and the shower walls and can not be transferred to the drain. To overcome the flow problem, the researchers devised a vacu-um-towel technique in which a small vacuum cleiqgier -devke sucks the water dnqtlets from tiii wall, transporting them to the storage site. In addition, the bather v^ speelal toweU. "There were all sorts of prob-lenu to solve," Hall said. "We discovered that a hand-held spray would best meet our needs, rather than the traMtlonal shower fixture in the celUng or tide of the wall. "Our Jd) was to ijtod a way for the astronaut»tb takfe a total bath, f«i«<1tiilifl%» fliA In wmwi and retrieve the water for subsequent reuse." Space shower bath technology development at the research center began In 19«8 when scientists realised there would be a personal hygiene facility requirement as longer space trips were made. The Idea was to come up with something to sustain the astronauts bath-wise — for periods up to t«^ years or more. For shorter q>ace flights, aeronauts have cleaned up, la a way, with «ret wipers similar to those used on airliners after a meal. In ijrro.
