Soviet Navy Commander Boasts Of Nuclear Submarine Strength MOSCOW (CP-AP) commander of the Soviet Navy boasted Sunday his missile- carrying nuclear submarines have "bound the hands of the imperialists" and are ready to give a "crushing rebuff to any aggressor." In the U.S., the father of the U.S. Navy's nuclear force, Vice Admiral Hyman Hick- over, has said the Russians are gaining on American superior- ity on the high seas and that most of the bragging is justi- fied. "The pride of our navy is atomic submarines, fitted with missiles of various purposes which can be launched from under Admiral Sergei Gorshkov proclaimed in a So- viet Navy Day article in Rolls-Royce Warns Airlines To Modify Jet Engines LONDON (AP) Nine inter- national airlines, including two In Canada, flying aircraft fitted1 with Rolls-Royce Conway jet engines have been warned to carry out emergency modifica- tions, the company said Sun- day.

"Together with naval mis- sile carrying, high speed, ong range planes, the sub- marines are the basis of the striking might of the Gorshkov wrote. "Up-to-d ate surface ships with perfect weapons are assigned a major role. "Ships of the Soviet Navy are systematically present in all oceans, including the areas of the presence of navies of NATO. Such a situation is un- doubtedly not to the liking of mperialist hawks." Gorshkov made his remarks just a day after testimony that Mckover gave to a congres- sional committee was released, ii it the American admiral said the Soviet Union could start history's "biggest war to- morrow and "I am frankly not confident the outcome of such a war would be in our favor." SOVIETS TRYING'HARD He said the Soviets will sur- pass the U.S. in the total num- oer of atomic powered sub- marines by the end of the year and may already have done so. "All the evidence we have [rom our best sources indicates ihat the Soviets are maintain- ing their tremendous pace in submarine design he said. The total number of Soviet submarines, diesel and nu- clear powered, was three times larger than the Ameri- can. The Soviet Union was con- centrating its efforts at build- ing a nuclear submarine fleet of the Polaris type, a vessel capable of carrying up to 16 inter continental ballistic mis- siles. He made his remarks in criticizing congressional advo- cates of reduced def e n c e spending, saying that the U.S. military posture is serious- ly deteriorating. Gorshkov said that the Soviet Union relies "not only on the quantity cf ships but mainly the quality of their missile- nuclear weapons and technical facilities." Such talk was unheard of in 1956, when the 60-year-old ad- miral took command of the So- viet navy. Any doubts about today's So- fiet sea power were dispelled last April and May when the navy staged its biggest man- oeuvres in history. The four leets scattered across the Pa- cific, Atlantic and Indian oceans and the Mediterranean :o prove what Gorshkov called :a high level of preparedness, :actical maturity and the abil- ity to 'Carry out complicated multi-stage combat actions." Senator Kennedy Released From Probation Term EDGARTOWN, Mass. (AP) Senator Edward M. Ken- nedy was released Saturday from a year's probation in the death of Mary Jo Kopechne, in which he pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an acci- dent. Miss Kopechne, 20, a Wash- ington secretary, was drowned whan Kennedy's car plunged off a bridge pn nearby Chappa- quiddick Island last July 18. Kennedy was given a two- months' suspended sentence and the one-year probation. The end of the probationary period will permit Kennedy to apply for his driver's licence, which he could not keep while on probation. Death Over Dime KANSAS CITY (AP) said 14-year-old Roy Wardel Lang was shot to death here because he refused to loan a man a dime for a telephone call. Police said a man was ii custody, Postmen To Continue Strike Plans OTTAWA (CP) postal dispute continued today as off- ices were struck in British Col- umbia, Ontario, Quebec, and the Maritimes, and a Maritimes postal union official promised "indefinite" strikes would re- place the 24-hour rotating strikes in his area. In the Maritimes postal work- ers struck offices in Saint John, N.B., and Sydney, N.S. Workers at Corner Brook, Nfld., were also on strike. Jerry Lowe, Atlantic zone director for the Council of Postal Unions, said the strike could last "for 24 hours, hours or 72 hours." "From now on, strikes in our region will be for an indefinite period of he said. In British Columbia workers struck all offices in Vancouver. Postal workers later were re- ported off the job at Salmon Arm, Penticton, Kelowna and Vernon in the Okanagau and at Hevelstoke, Kamloops, Nelson, Castlegar, Trail, Rossland and Grand Forks. Dock Strike Pay Demand Rejected LONDON (AP) An impar- tial court of inquiry rejected today the demand by striking British longshoremen for pay increases that would al- most double their basic wage. The inquiry, headed by Lord Pearson, recommended instead that the dockers should accept the employers' offer of an in- crease in the guaranteed weekly wage paid whether a man is given work or not. The men have already re- jected the employers' offer, and if they continue to do so, the 13- day-old strike would continue for weeks. However, the Pearson inquiry recommendations included sev- eral improvements, including bigger overtime payments and better holiday pay, and these could attract support from the men. Bramlori Belled Li Winds term By THE CANADIAN PRESS Winds up to 90 miles an horn1 swept across southern Mani- toba Saturday night, causing extensive damage in some areas.

Soviet, German Non-Aggression Pact Talks Begin ter relations with Eastern Eu- rope. Foreign Minister Walter Scheel of West Germany and Foreign Minister Andrei Gro- myko of the Soviet Union are ManhuntLaunched For Mad Bombers BELFAST (AP) Anti-Pro- testant raiders known as "the mad bombers of Belfast" set off explosions early Sunday, damaging the homes of a lead- ing Northern Ireland clergy- man and a judge who seat Bernadette Devlin to Police mounted a massive manhunt throughout the city after three blasts in the last 24 hours. The main targets of the bombers were Rev. Martin Smyth, grand master of the ultra-Protestant 9range Order in Belfast, and Sir L a n c e lot Curran, lord chief justice of ap- peal in Ulster's Supreme Court. No one was reported hurt by the explosions, which blew in the doors and windows of both homes. Curran was one of three Su- preme Court judges who last month rejected an appeal by Miss Devlin, a leader of the Roman Catholic-backed civil rights movement, against a six months jail sentence for incit- ing riots in Londonderry last year. Fears for the safety of the two other judges in the case were expressed in a govern- ment announcement offering a (about reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the bombers. The "mad bombers" as some Irish newspapers call them, have stepped up their raids since the government refused permission for 23-year-old Miss Devlin to leave Armagh jail to be sworn in at Westminster as a member of the British Par- liament. They seem to have "endless supplies of explosives'" a po- lice source said. Four pounds of gelignite were found near the site of the third overnight blast, which was at the home of a Protestant saloon keeper. The bombers began their at- tacks after Prime Minister- James Chichester-Clark ban- ned all street parades for six months in an effort to take the heat out of Catholic-Protestant feuding. The ban was defied by Prot- estants in two areas Sunday. More than bowler-hat- ted Orangeman marched through the village of Kilskeery in County Tyrone. Hundreds of troops and police were on hand, but the parade was allowed to go on. Another right-wing Prot- estant organization, the Ap- prentice Boys, marched to a church in Londonderry, always a flashpoint of Ulster's reli- gious torment. About 100 of the "boys" staged the orderly pa- rade to cheers from watching crowds. Two Killed In Alberta Accidents By THE CANADIAN PRESS At least two persons died ac- cidentally in Alberta during the weekend, both in traffic. Marilyn Ritchie, 18, of Ed- monton died early Sunday fol- lowing a two-car. collision Sat- urday on Highway 15 about two miles north of Edmonton. And 30 year old Law- rence Lyle Boyd of Camrose, was killed Saturday when the car he was driving missed a curve on Highway 13 near Daysland, 25 miles east of Camrose. RCMP said he was lluxwn from the vehicle. Planes Raid Red Buildup Positions SAIGON (AP) United States B-52 bombers attacked North Vietnamese positions at eight points along South Viet- nam's border with Cambodia and Laos today amid reports of new Communist buildups. The raids were the heaviest by the giant eight-jet bombers in two weeks, stretching from the southern Mekong Delta to the demilitarized zone at the northern end of the country. Eight waves of the B-52s dropped tons of bombs on North Vietnamese bunkers, base camps, weapons positions, staging areas and supply de- pots. Other B-52s and smaller fighter-bombers pounded supply routes from Laos and Cam- bodia. The U.S. command ordered the strikes after intelligence re- ports said North Vietnamese troops were moving back into border areas from which they withdrew when U.S. and South Vietnamese forces struck at their Cambodian sanctuaries in May and June, Continue Hunger Strike MATSQUI, B.C. (CP) Two Doukhobor women char g e d with arson enter the 26th day of their hunger strike today at Matsqui Correctional Centre. Mary Malakoff, of Thurms, and Marsha Astaforoff, of Gil- pin, are in the centre's hospi- tal and are being force fed through nasal tubes. Warden Jim Murphy said Sunday night the women are weak but in good spirits. The two involved in a sim- ilar hunger strike while serving five year sentences in King- ston for arson and break-ins are among six women of the Freedomite sect charged in connection with the June 28 burning of Orthodox Doukhobor leader John Verigin's home in Grand Forks. The other four women ended their 18 day hunger strike at Oakalla last week. rying to conclude an agreement n which West Germany and the Soviet Union renounce the use if force against each other and West Germany accepts the post-war loss of German terri- ory to Poland and the Soviet Union. But in an attempt to appease he political opposition at home, Scheel brought along amend- ments he wants to attach to the reaty emphasizing Bonn's aims of German reunification and im- proved access to West Berlin. The meeting lasted just over an hour. Scheel told reporters the meeting had been "good" and its atmosphere "co-opera- ive, very co-operative." MEET AGAIN He and Gromyfco scheduled another meeting in the after- noon. Socialist Chancellor Willy Brandt's conservative opposi- tion, the Christian Democrats, have been charging that the proposed treaty's recognition of Germany's post-war eastern borders gives away the govern- ment's chief bargaining point without getting enough in re- turn. But an article Sunday in Pravda, the S'oviet Communist party newspaper, indicated a chilly reception for the amend- ments Scheel worked up to counter the. Christian Demo- cratic argument. The West German govern- ment also hopes an agreement in Moscow will lead to improved relations with other East Euro- pean countries. Bonn now has diplomatic ties with only three Communist Soviet Union, Yugoslavia and Romania would like to expand trade and political relations with oth- ers, particularly Poland.
