At that time it was with considerable pain that i paid $5.00 for what was called an Entrance fee into the emergency room. This fee did not include any service whatever. I would appreciate any comment on any facet of what i have said. Thank you. . A.

Humphrey has taken on Feu like proportions with a new Exchange of words Over Mcgovern a position on several issues. The latest step was taken by South Dakota sen.

He said Quot i do not intend to stand by and watch the democratic convention destroy the prospects for democratic Victory by endorsing legalized marijuana unconditional amnesty for draft evaders unilateral disarmament or by adopting a program which proposes that Middle income taxpayers foot the Bill for a fantastic scheme of income Mcgovern an opponent of the legalization of marijuana is associated with support of the eventual amnesty for deserters and a controversial income redistribution plan aimed at providing All americans with a guaranteed annual allowance of perhaps $1,000 before taxes.

By Arthur l. Gashon associated press writer London a China has closed its Southern ports to soviet ships loaded with War supplies for North Vietnam but is still allowing ships from other communist countries to land supplies for Hanoi authorities in touch with both peking and Moscow reported today.

Mining of North v Vietnam a sports has been condemned by both peking and Moscow As illegal interference with navigation on the High seas.

The chinese reportedly argue that the soviet Union Quot has the Means and the equipment with which to foil the american min ing while China does not. In peking a View therefore Moscow a failure to accept the Challenge fan Only mean that its relationship with Washington is deemed to transcend its responsibility to Hanoi. The informants say that As peking sees it the smaller East european countries Lack the Power to Challenge the americans therefore their car goes for Hanoi Are being accepted in chinese ports. For their part the russians reportedly contend that peking s attitude is consistent with other signs suggesting China is moving away from its obligation to help Hanoi.
