I wonder of you could help me about this and would appreciate it soon for we will soon be off for the summer. Thank you a lot. Girl. A. We believe you were scraping the barrel for a topic of discussion but it is that time of year when we Are All Down to the Dregs and Are eager to fill life a cup with a sport that wrinkled care derides. And laughter holding both his at any Given moment there Are roughly a thousand questions piled up we possess the desk with the most horrendous mess in the newsroom and something like 200 More come in each week. The daily number has ranged from a Low of 19 to a High of 110. That Day we nearly threw in the Towel. We try to keep some semblance of priorities and variety in choosing but sometimes selections Are made More in desperation than with judicious Ness for it Isnit easy to determine which problems Are More nettle some than another or which request is More urgent a especially when about 80 per cent want an answer a real the stated intent of the column when it was started was that you can fight City Hall or something to that effect. That a Why there is a preponderance of questions related to City services. These Are relayed to the City or other official in charge who reports Back after checking the complaint. When general information is wanted we turn like any student to the most Likely source for an answer encyclopedias books the Public Library an authority on the subject an Agency or institution the chamber of Commerce a the list is Long.

North vietnamese attacks have been stalled elsewhere in South Vietnam in recent weeks. . Experts Are convinced that the North vietnamese had to stockpile substantial amounts of ammunition and Materiel in South Vietnam and the area just above the demilitarized zone before springing their offensive in late March. But officials say the cutoff of any major new Supply flow into North Vietnam from Russia and China and the systematic bombing of internal North vietnamese Supply lines leading toward the fronts May have prompted Hanoi a Field commanders to conserve ammunition. According to . Intelligence estimates the movement of fresh War supplies Down into the lower North vietnamese Panhandle has been slashed from about 300 tons a Day Early in the offensive to Only 18 tons a Day recently. It was just one month ago May 8, that Nixon announced he had concluded that a Hanoi must be denied the weapons and supplies it needs to continue the aggression against South Vietnam.

I am calling in regard to our softball leagues in High Point which this year Are greater in number. High Point is participating in commercial softball slow pitch and fast pitch this year and we see nothing of the action of our people playing Ball in the papers or radio.

Sources indicated wednesday that the Maine senator would abandon entirely his Campaign and support Mcgovern. Abc and the new York times reported that the word could come when Muskie addresses the National press club in Washington on Friday. Muskies support and the 166 delegates his candidacy collected before it faltered could put Mcgovern within grasping distance of the All important figure of 1,509, the number of delegates needed to win the nomination in Miami Beach in july. Even before word of muskies possible move began to circulate Mcgovern was allowing himself the luxury of speculating that a first ballot Victory in Miami is possible after defeating his chief rival. Sen. Hubert h. Humphrey of Minnesota in the Pivotal California primary As Well As three others tuesday. For his part Humphrey was acknowledging Only that his chances were a not what i would Call the he said he has a Good Chance on a Sec Ond or third convention ballot and would have a better Chance against president Nixon in november than would Mcgovern. Late wednesday the Public pronouncements from the Muskie Camp tended to the cautious with spokesman Richard Stewart saying the senator is still trying to decide. Stewart said Muskie and Mcgovern talked by Telephone wednesday but he did not know what was discussed. The Mcgovern Delegate count according to his Campaign director Gary Hart is expected to reach at least 1,335 delegates and possibly As High As 1,400, following the june 20 new York primary last of the Batch. While the Campaign focused on Washington and Miami Mcgovern was thinking in much broader geographic terms in a Flat statement that he believes he can personally negotiate an end to the Vietnam War. The South Dakota senator told a los Angeles news conference he would go anywhere in the world Hanoi if necessary to negotiate. As running mate Mcgovern considers Askew and Sanford by Carl p. Leubsdorf a political writer Washington a sen. George Mcgovern planning a Campaign swing through the South says a Dixie running mate a would be helpful assuming he were qualified to take Over the White House without a major change in policy. Gov. Reubin Askew of Florida and former gov. Terry Sanford of North Carolina came to Mcgovern a mind in an interview the Day before he Defeated sen. Hubert h. Humphrey in the California democratic presidential primary. Humphrey in the Wake of that loss and Mcgovern victories in three other primaries tuesday also talked about a possible running mate wednesday. He reversed himself and said Alabama gov. George c. Wallace would be acceptable to him if Wallace endorsed the party a platform at the democratic convention in Miami Beach next month.

Aides said that probably Means the latter part of next week.

In the interview conducted As he flew from san Diego to Albuquerque Enro Ute to a Fence mending Mission with democratic governors meeting in Houston Mcgovern was asked about the importance of geography in picking a running mate. A other things being equal a he said a if you could get a southerner i think it would be he agreed that Askews lawyer ruled unnecessary in lineup rules for questioning suspects Cloudy by Barry Schweid associated pros writer Washington a the latest supreme court turn toward the right in criminal Law appears to leave confused the rules for questioning suspects. According to a 5-4 decision by the court on wednesday police do not have to provide a lawyer when they put an arrested suspect in a lineup or a show up for identification. And yet under the 1966 Miranda decision the suspect is entitled to a lawyer from the moment station House interrogation begins. The two decision appear to be in some conflict. Presumably the suspect would be granted a lawyer when the interrogation began but if police chose later to bring in witnesses for identification the lawyer would have to step out of the room. A possible approach the police now might take in Light of the new ruling would be to put off questioning until after the lineup shutting out the lawyer until then. In the process they might pick up a solid identification. And that could be As valuable at trial As a confession. Complicating the situation still further is the 1907 Wade decision in which the court ruled 6 to 3 that once a suspect has been indicted he cannot be placed in a lineup unless a lawyer is on hand. What this decision and the one wednesday in a Case from Chicago add up to is this if the suspect has been indicted he is entitled to a lawyer at the lineup. Of he has been arrested but not indicted he is not entitled to a lawyer at the lineup. Add to this the fact that under Miranda he is entitled to a lawyer during interrogation and you have a complicated situation. In a dissenting opinion signed also by justices William o. Douglas and Thurgood Marshall Justice William j. Brennan questioned the courts logic. A fourth Justice Byron r. White said the court should have applied the Wade decision to the Chicago Case. It involved an arrested suspect Thomas Kirby identified in a face to face station House show up by a Holdup victim. Speaking for the majority Justice Potter Stewart concluded this 6th amendment right takes hold Only beginning with a formal charge preliminary hearing indictment information or arraignment. With the decision the court snapped a string of rulings extending the right to counsel. However in a Case from Tennessee the court settled on the Side of defendants. Struck Down see rules in 2-a Strong identification with the s c h o o 1-busing questions the governor unsuccessfully fought an anti using Resolution in Florida might be a problem but added a a in a very High on asked to cite others he mentioned Sanford beaten by Wallace ii the North Carolina primary last month.
