The ruling by the high court Monday covers every police sta-lion and sheriff's office in the land. "It's the damndest thing I ever heard of," said Police Chief Henry C. Ashley of Garland, Tex., when news of the ruling in four confession cases reached the Texas Police Association convention at Odessa. "We may as well close up shop." What the court did in a 5-4 decision announced by Chief Justice Earl Warren was rule out of bounds in trials all incriminating statements made by a suspect whose constitutional right against possible self-incrimination are not safeguarded by the police. The ruling split the justices into two camps, and the dissenters fired angry words at the majority. His face visibly flushed, Justice John M. Harlan accused Warren and the four justices who lined up with him of "a hazardous experiment at a time when the crime rate in this country is a problem of growing concern." "The court is taking a real risk with society's welfare in imposing its new regime on the country," Harlan said in a dissenting opinion joined by Justices Potter Stewart and Byroa Please Turn to Page 10, Col. 1 SQUAD CAR SET AFIRE IN DISORDER - A police squad car, overturned by an unruly crowd, burns at corner of Division and Damen Avenue on Chicago's near northwest side Sunday night.

Mr. Derr explain, cd that this project, under the Federal Manpower Training Program and coupled with the On the Job Training Program (also federally-financed) would be underwritten by federal funds with the County Board responsible for its operation and staff recruitment. Trainees would be referred by the Pennsylvania State Department of Employment Security and paid subsistence during the five-week training period.

New men entering the service no longer will be guaranteed specific assignments abroad under the overseas command enlistment option. These two changes take effect July l - a result of Viet Nam requirements. A spokesman said that with the buildup in Southeast Asia more and more replacements are needed for servicemen ending tours of duty. With more slots to fill in Viet Nam, the Army has less flexibility in where it can send men. Heretofore, a man re-enlisting in the Army could select a U S. station where he would serve his next tour, and be virtually guaranteed of getting it. A similar guarantee applied to new men entering the Army who asked for assignments to Europe, Korea, the Pacific, or Alaska. Rioters Face Instant Military Service...
