Times Recorder, The (Newspaper) - January 14, 1970, Zanesville, Ohio Good Morning Well, it's getting that time of year when most New Year's resolutions are broken.

U. S. spokesmen said the eight-engme jet dropped about 360 tons of exp'.ossves near Laos in four raids Monday and Tuesday against mountain posi- tions overlooking the long A Shau Valley.

Navy tank landing ship, New London County. The blast caused minor flooding in the ship but spokesmen said there were no casualties among its crew of about 150 men. Military spokesmen said it was the first time in more than a that a major American Navy vessel had been damaged in a mining incident in Vietnam waters. Official sources said North Vietnamese forces, in the past three months, had moved back into the jung'ed A Shau alley, 375 miles northeast of Saigon. The basin is an important infiltration route from Laos to the northern cities of Hue and Da Nang. The 101st Airborne Division pushed the Communists back into Laos last vear in heaw fighting that .ncluded the battle for Hamburger Hill.

Bright sunshine lingered throughout the day and helped push the mercury to relatively mild levels during the afternoon, but as can be seen in this photo taken near Maysville High School, the snow did little melting. More light snow was predicted for today but temperatures are expected to continue moderating. Tuesday's early morning low in Zanesulle was a frigid seven degrees. Also Mentioned Dixie Senators Expect Nixon To Tap Southern Court Justice WASHINGTON (UPI) spite speculation that a AVest Coast judge is the leading candidate for the Supreme Court, Dixie senators still expect President Nixon to turn to the South again to fill the seat Clement F. Hajnsworth failed to win. The Justice Department has Informed Howard Baker, R-Tenn that published reports that Nixon has settled on Judge Louis H. Burke, 65. of the California Supreme Court are inaccurate. Baker is backing William E. Miller, Nashville, chief judge o! the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee. Baker emerged from a meeting with Attorney General John N. Mitchell with assurances Miller was still in the running. The seat has been vacant since May 15 when Abe Fortas resigned under fire for accept- ing a fee, which he later returned, from the family foundation of financier Louis Wolfson, jailed for selling unregistered securities. President Nixon is expected to send his new nomination to the Senate with- in a week. The Senate refused to confirm his first choice, Fed-era! Judge Haynsworth, of Greenville, S.C., because of his off-the-bench financial dealings. There were wide reports when Hayns-.vorth was selected that the nomination was part of Nixon's "southern strategy" for making Republican inroads into the Democratic South. Sen. Hugh Scott of Pennsylva- nia, the Republican floor leader who voted against Haynsworth, nonetheless suggested then that Nixon again look south of the Mason-Dixon line for his next nominee. He bsted four Virgin- ians for the President's consideration: U.S. District Judges Ted Dalton of Rich- mond: Oren Lewis of Alexan- dria, and Walter Hoffman of Norfolk. Inside Today's Times Recorder Bureaucrats Ignore Like every president before him, Richard Nixon has issued directives, delivered pronouncements, dictated memos and otherwise sought to bestir the vast federal bureaucracy. But also like even- past president, Nixon has made little impression on the bureaucrats who re- spectfully note the presidential stirrings and then go on doing as they have always done.

Police fired tear gas into a large crowd that marched on the Roman Catho- lic secretariat after the govern- ment denounced Pcpe Paul VI as "mischievous and provoca- tive." Maj. Gen. Yakabu Gowon, the Nigerian chief of state, was luke.varm to the massive relief program being organized by the free world for victims of the 214-year civil war. But he gave permission for Britain to fly in 10 tons of medical supplies. (Biafran leader Odumegwu was reported Tuesday night to have fled to Sambia. Diplomat- ic sources in Lusaka said Gen. Ojukwu arrived by plane at the northern village of Mbala near the Tanzanian border sometime during the day Tuesday.) (The sources said Ojukwu, who led Biafra into secessic.i on May 30, 1967, would confer with Zambian President Ken- neth Kuanda and Tanzanian President Julius Nyerere.) Gowon, speaking only hours after a statement in which he appealed for national unity, said Nigeria has tons of relief goods stockpiled in Lagos ready for distribution. Gowon said he was ready for peace talks with Gen. Philip Eiiiong, Biafra's new leader. Pope Paul became the target for displeasure in Lagos be- cause of hi-, statements ex- pressing fear that victorious federal troops under Gowon would massacre Biafrans. The Ibo tribesmen of Biafra are mostly Christians and the war was spawned by years of religious strife between the Ibos and the predominantly Moslem Hausas of northern Nigeria. tt-nle Nigenan Chilians cele- brated in the streets of Lagos Tuesday, army commanders in the jungles of Biafra offered full amnesty and protection in rebel troop1; who surrendered their weapons. Gowon ordered his soldiers to show mercy on the tattered, starving Ifao population, and they would shoot "only :f they encounter resistance Nigerians young and old turned out in Ixigos Tue-day for the victory celebrations. Some of the signs read ''Long live and Shame on The crowd marching on the Roman Catholic secretariat rapidly after the police fired tear gas canisters. Tne demonstrators other, more festive groups. An official Nigerian em- inent statement denouncing Pope Paul's statements on the end of the war as mischievous and provocative" deplored his fears of tribal genocide. The Vatican operates an extensive missionary service in Nigeria and other African nations. Support Sought In Education JACKSON7, Miss. John Bell Williams called for support Tuesday of private and public schools in Mississippi to preserve "quality education" for all children in the wake of the Supreme Court's total integration mandate. "The courts have forced on us a unitary public school told the state legislature, "but in doing so, they have brought into being a dual system of education' one public; the other, private." It was the governor's first major address since implemen- tation of the Supreme Court's October decree began last week in 30 of the state's 148 school districts. All but five of the 30 have resumed regular classes with no major incidents but there has been a massive uithdi_ :al by whites in heavily black areas. Williams urged the legislature to consider a proposal giving state tax credit to persons who assist in the financial support of either public or private schools. He said the past few days have shown that "thousands of Mississippi parents, white and black, will not accept the conditions imposed on their children's education by the courts. "It is to be expected that thousands more Mill follow suit as schools complete their first semester and enter into the next semester under the burden of these decrees." In the dnve to help private schools, however, Williams said public schools "remain, in the long run, the most practical means of mass education." Cr.il Rights leader Charles Evers charged that segregation by classes has sprung up in some schools involved in the decision. He singled out the Natchez-Adams County district. Chicago Judge Hails 0 In space Ex-Gang Chief Hero Cut Back CHICAGO (UPI) Criminal Court Judge Saul A. Epton knew Jim Hobson well. He had sent him to prison at least 43 times. So when Army Sgt. James Hobson, 24, walked into Epton's courtroom Tuesday, the judge called an immediate recess. Back in the old days, Hobson was a leader of the Vice Lords, one of Chicago's largest street gangs of teen-age toughs. "I ]ust can't tell you what a trouble-maker this fellow the judge recalled. -'He was the leader of a gang'of members and I felt he was responsible for most of their activities So, when I sent other Vice Lords to jail for a day or week, I sent him along." Yet it was Epton who recommended Hohson for the U.S. Army in 1967 despite hefty police record. "He had real leadership, just in the wrong Epton said. "I knew he'd wind up a hero or in the bug I just had my fingers crossed." F.pton can uncross his fingers. The soldier v.hn his court Tuesday is a wounded veteran of 14 months in Vietnam and holder of eight medals, including two presidential citations and a Bronze Star. "I feel so good I think I'll buy him a the judge said.
