(AP) _ President Nixon called on the si- lent majority Saturday lo cast its votes for Republican candi- dates in the Nov. 3 election sa his administration can gain (lie strength it needs in Congress.

They completely drowned him out when ho ar- rived in Wisconsin, An estimated persons turned out at Austin-Straubel Field in Green Bay. When the President stepped down Ihe stairs from his plane and walked to a microphone, loud chants, containing obscenities, bellowed from the crowd.

He returned moments later with Wisconsin's top GOP candidates flanking him. s All during Nixon's four-stop tour Saturday, he had been plugging local Republican office seekers and decrying dissen- ters. He delivered the same talk in Wisconsin. He traveled to Green Bay lo honor Green Bay Packer quarterback Bart Starr at a tes- timonial program. "I respect their right to be heard even if they don't respect he said of the demon- strators from the steps of the airplane.

Nixon also made mention of the antiwar demonstrators at Lancaster, Pa., although he was met by a friendly audience. At Teterboro, the President urged the "great majority' to reject the rock-throwing and ob- scenity-shouting tactics of a small minority and to speak up with their votes. "This small minority, wiUi its obscene language, its rock- throwing, has given many the impression that they are the Nixon told a crowd in Teterboro.

(Staff Photo by John Best) By BOB BRUCE Reporter-News Military Editor If there were a theater marquee to adverlise the Air Force Thunderbirds and Army Golden Knighfs, it undoubtedly would proclaim them "Two of Hie World's Great Air Shows." And that is what approximately West Texans saw Saturday at Dyess AFB's fifth annual fall open jet flying and parachute jumping. It evolved in spite of a low cloud cover which forced the Thunderbirds, from Nellis AFB, Nev., and the Knights, from Fort Bragg, N.C., to put on their "low" show. A Thunderbird spokesman estimated the low ceiling cut the F4E jets' show in liHlf. Most of the time, the Army sky clivers descended through wispy clouds before they became visible the crowd below. to First C5 Explodes DOBBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. (AP) Three explo- sions and fire killed a flight me- chanic and destroyed the first C5 transport ever built just aft- er it was defueled Saturday and its tanks purged of fumes. The Lockheed Georgia Co. said the cause of the explosions was not determined. But the de- struction prompted a call from Sen. William Proxmire, D-Wis., that the Air Force ground all C5s until the cause is deter- mined. He said the plane was not safe and at million a copy" was i costing taxpayers too much money. Lockheed said "sabotage can- not be discounted" bul. are no indications that this is happened." Lockheed said there were 1three quick explosions at gam. followed by a fire that en- 5 gulfed the plane. Phillip L. Smith, 31, of Ros- well, a suburb of Atlanta was killed. Another mechanic was hospi- talized with shock.

The C5 had flown over 700 hours since the Air Force and Lockheed began using it as a test plane in June 1968, said Stafford. "It conipleted a mis- sion Friday and the crew re- ported it was in fine said Slafford. "From this we feel that it was not a structural or design prob- lem that caused the explosion." He said he thought the explo- sion would not slow the C5 con- struction program, which has been under fire from some members of Congress as too ex- pensive.

The crowd estimate was made by a couple of Thunderbird members, who have developed some experience in sizing up gathering of multitudes. The largest they've performed before was two million in a two- day show in Chicago; the smallest, about 800 at the Alaskan village of Galena, near Fairbanks. "They don't really like to perform this kind of (Low) said Chuck Benham, a technical representative of McDonnell Corp., which manufactures Ihe F-4 Phantom jet. The "high" show is more colorful, he said, but it requires a minimum of feet. The clouds weren't anywhere near that high Saturday; closer, in fact, lo the foot minimum for "low" shows. THE KNIGHTS and Thunderbirds see a lot of each two out of every Ihrce performances, said one of the T-Bird NCOs, S. Sgt. Jim Klimish of Jackson, Minn. The Thunderbirds also try to avoid staging shows in the northern U.S. during this time o( year, because of the weather. Next week, they fly to the Bahamas. Each service team left behind a memento. The Golden Knights presented a baton to Abilene Mayor J.C. Hunter Jr. Knight commander Maj. Gerry Plummer and Sgt. Bill Knight did the honors. Sgt. Knight admitted he gets "quite a bit" of kidding concerning the fact that his surname and team name are the same. The baton is the type passed between sky divers on their downward descent. The Thunderbirds presented mounted color photographs of their aircraft to wives whose husbands are prisoners of war in Southeast Asia. TWO OF THE women live in William L, Brooks, 2517 Woodridge, and Mrs. Edward M. Parsley, 5119 Durango. Mrs. Brooks' husband is a major, Mrs. Parsley's a technical sergeant.

Investigating the burglary are Johnny Wilson of Winters, chief deputy from the Runnels County Department, Joe Stevens, chief of police of Winters, and H. B. McCannell, postal inspector from San Angelo. Allen said the safe door was peeled off to get the siamps and his personal money. He said cash drawers were pried open. "We knew exactly Ifie amount of every stamp that was stolen and the breakdown of money taken because we had just completed our inventory Friday Allen said. He said a pack of 500 commemorative stamps which were to go on sale Sunday were thrown on the floor. Also left behind were blank money orders.

Police brought the charges after finding the five Philadelphia men having a picnic on Ihe 48-star flag last June. But defense attorneys produced the Raquel Welch photo, cups, plates and napkins bearing the American Flag an 1862 photo of Abraham Lincoln and Gen. George McClelland sitting in a battlefield tent at a flag-covered table. Before the acquittal Friday, Municipal Judge Robert A. Lalrone asked: "Is it worse for liaquel Welch (o have the Stars and Stripes next lo her bare analomy than to sit on it? Do we condone that and prosecute these defendants? When she cloaks herself In the flag Is she glamorizing the flag or desecrating "Technically, when we pour kelchup on a hot dog and eat it off that plate with the flag, we're desecrating the flag. This la startling." "Some of these exhibits are worse specimens of the judge said. One of Ihe defendants, David Olensky, 18, told the court he used the flag "as a beach blanket at Atlantic City, N. J., and It has a hole in it so I used it as a poncho around the house." Bul he and another defendant, Donald Miller, 22, explained that since the nag had only 48 stars, they thought it was no longer an official flag. Judge l-atrone told them whatever the number of stars, the flag is still the official standard. And he warned: "From the fads before me, what you did was not maliciously, perhaps more playfully, and may have been dona to bring about an issue. Thai's (he court's suspicion. The next time you may not be so lucky."
