All 10 de- fendants were convicted on all four counts of the indictment.

James V. Smith, adminis- tralor of the Farmers Home Administration, told those attending the .Uplift Rural America Day a ct i v i t i e s sponsored by Dublin Young Farmers, that the rural people give administrators the courage, backbone and principles and support to slop trouble makers. About 800 Dublin and area residents were also told that a farm bill may be in the offering in the next few days, that Texas lawmakers will concentrate on urban and rural problems in 1971 and that rural America is the backbone of family farming. The Uplift Rural America Day program planned for area resi- dents to publicly express "thanks" to the officials turned out to be a mutual admiration session, as officials thanked Ihe community for showing what rural America can do and for providing Ihe leadership and courage needed to strengthened America as a whole. Smith said such communities Stories, photos, Fg. 7-B are shining examples (o other rural areas that the rural populations can gain instead of decrease with the proper lead- ership.

The U.S. Navy in Washington declared, quoting Pacific Fleet headquar- ters: "The U.S. Navy had no ships of any kind operating in that area." This made it appear that the North Koreans could be talking about the seizure of a SouUi Ko- rean navy vessel by North Ko- rean guiibnats in the Yellow Sea, announced earlier by the Soulli Koreans, wlw said "their .vessel was fired upon. The official Korean Central News Agency in North Korea said the spy ship "intruded deep into the coastal waters" about p.m. Friday to conduct re- connaissance." The KCNA Dispatch said: "Officers and men of (lie navy of the Korean People's army instantly sent to (he bottom of the sea the enemy's armed spy ship which intruded deep Into the coastal waters." It said the ship was sunk off Haeju, in the Yellow Sea on the western coast of North Korea about 50 miles south of the capi- tal, Pyongyang. Earlier, the South Korean De- fense Minblry reported one of ils navy craft with 20 crewmen was seized by two Communist patrol boats and taken to the North. KCNA said the U.S. ship crossed into North Korean- claimed waters as "the U.S. im- perialist aggressor army is markedly intensifying grave armed provocations" against North Korea along the demili- tarized zone.

"Following this, Ihe U.S. im- perialisl aggressor army infil- traled at around p.m. on the fifth (June 5) a heavily armed spy ship under the cover of fighter planes and warships into the sea off Haeju, the coasl- al waters of Ibe northern half of the republic, to conduct recon- KCNA said. In Seoul, Rrig. Gen. Roll Young-sun, spokesman for the South Korean Defense Ministry, said the North Koreans fired on Hie South Korean vessel in what he termed a "premeditated at- tack." He did not say whether the fire was returned or if there were casualties. There was no word on the condition of the crew. Defense Minister Chung Nae- hyuk called an emergency meeting of his aides.

Arrest warrants were issued for the three other defendants, the Rev. Nicholas .1. tiiddell, 40, of Milwaukee, a Carmelite priest; Miss Linda .T. Quint, 22, of Chicago, and Charles Muse, 21, of Koxbury, Mass., alter Ihey failed to appear in court near the end of their trial. Eighteen persons were arrest- ed May 25, during the raid on a Southwest Side draft board office but three were dismissed because they were newspaper reporters observing the demon- stration. Four defendants who failed to appear at the start of the trial were severed from the proceed- ings. Edward Hoffman's, 32, of Iowa City, Iowa, the other defendant, was declared mentally unfit to stand trial after a psychiatrist testified for the government that Hoffmans showed symptoms of a schizoid personality. Hoff- mans, who repeatedly had re- fused to rise for the judge, was committed to a federal mental institution. A higher court stayed the order, however. The 10 persons convicted ad- milted during the month-long trial that they had participated in the raid and destroyed tiie draft board records by pouring paint on (hem and placing them in a bonfire. They said that the day before the raid Ihey held a "sensitivity session" at which each persons involved expressed his or her political views and personal phi- losophy.
