Nixon Signs New Ciime Laws Bill SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (AP) President Nixon signed into law Wednesday the controver- sial District of Columbia _ crime bill, which permits police to break into homes unannounced and the pre-trial jailing of cer- tain defendants. Nixon signed the bulky docu- ment at his retreat here five days after the bill cleared the Senate. The measure is aimed at low- ering the crime rate in the U.S. capital but is expected to serve as a model for the states. The legislation expands police authority for wiretapping under court order; sets mandatory minimum sentences for second offenders convicted of armed vi- olent crimes; allows adult trials {or Juveniles charged with vio- lent crimes; provides more judges and creates a public-de- fender system. It allows pre-trial jailing of persons adjudged likely to en- danger community safety anc authorizes police to enter homes without knocking while execut- ing certain search and arrest warrants.

As far as the Chinese grai juyers are concerned, Mr McNamara said, "we've g every confidence in their era bility as far as we are co cerned.

EXTRA WEAR FOR EVERY PAIR SHOE REPAIR MIKE HANZEL STREET SOUTH the same period last year. There were reported ases of syphilis to the end of une, exactly the same as in the ime period last year. Dr. Stan Acres, medical con- ultant in epidemiology in the ealth department, says no con- usions can be drawn from the yphilis figures as the incidence 1 syphilis fluctuates annually. But the upward swing in gon- rrhea "seerris to be continu- he said. The Dominion Bureau of Sta- istics reported two weeks ago lat the number of verereal dis- ase cases rose to in 1969 rom in 1968. This is an increase in the rate er population to 140.4 rom 119.3. Dr. Acres said the federal role is mainly vision of booklets and film trips. Provincial health depart ments provide clinical care ami receive reports directly from doctors. SOME OBSCURE Not all cases of venereal dis ease are reported. U.S. authon- ies estimate that the number of persons treated is three times ligher th-n the number re- wrted. "Undoubtedly, we have a sun lar situation Dr. Acres said. Gonorrhea is difficult to control. "The difficulty with gonor rhea is that it has such a shor ncubation Dr. Acres said. "Within 48 hours a person can have the full-blown symp :oms. "By this time, contacts have probably coma down with the infection and infected severa other people." Both syphilis and gonorrhe are spread through sexual inter course. The long-term effects of sy philis are generally more sever with one in 15 untreated case developing heart problems; on in 25 cases becoming totall crippled; one in 50 cases becom ing insane; and one in 200 case, becoming blind. Sufferers from gonorrhea gen erally seek medical treatmen quickly as the disease is rn tially more painful than syphili md shows up much sooner. It has been treated quite su cessfully with penicillin thoug some strains apparently resis it. If untreated, gonorrhea, or rare occasions, can cause steril 'ity in both men and women. It can also spread throughoi the body and enter the join causing arthritis.
