Gen. Vahan Vartanian, adjutant-general of the Massachusetts National Guard, said the guard members will remain in the city as long as needed. In a "purely precautionary move" Wednesday. The Pentagon said army paratroopers at Fort Bragg, N C were placed on increas- ed alert. Schools and streets were quiet Wednesday, officials said. School attendance was down, with 66.7 per cent of the city's public-school students c reporting to classes. In a statement opposing the 1 mobilization, Mayor Kevin White said: "We cannot allow this city to become another Detroit, where it took dozens of civilian deaths at the hands of the police and National Guardmen to bring in the federal troops." He said the guard is "neither designed nor ade- quately trained to control civil disturbance's" and lacks "sufficient relevant training in riot control and crowd dis- persal Delay irks Rockefeller WASHINGTON (AP) Senate rules committee Democrats, rejecting a plea by Nelson Rockefeller for a chance to testify im- mediately, said Wednesday the panel will reopen its hearings on Rockefeller's vice presidential nomination Nov. 13.

Watergate hearing ready for tapes BRIDGE RUG DRAPES LTD. FREE ESTIMATES Phons 329-4722 COLLEGE MALL WASHINGTON (AP) Prosecutors at the Watergate coverup trial prepared today to play one of the subpoenaed White House tapes but defence lawyers quickly challenged whether the recording could be used as evidence. With former White House counsel John Dean in the wit- ness box as the first prosecu- tion witness, the government was prepared to play the tape of a Sept. 15, 1972, conversa- tion Dean had with then- president Richard Nixon and H R. Haldeman, Nixon's chief-of-staff and one of the five cover-up defendants. But before the jury entered Wilsonr Haldeman's lawyer, was on his feet challenging the use of the White House tapes as evidence. "I want to examine Mr. Dean on his memory of these tapes before they go into Wilson said. Wilson urged U.S. District Judge John Sirica to set a far stricter standard for ad- missibility of the tapes than had been suggested by the prosecutors. In a memorandum sub- mitted Wednesday to Sirica the prosecutors argued that the tapes would be admissible so long as one of the par- ticipants, Dean in this case, "recalls all the participants in the conversations, identifies all the voices on the tapes as those of the participants, and Egg investigation follows food plea N _ OTTAWA (CP) The throne speech debate ended Wednesday in the Commons with External Affairs Minister Allan MacEachen calling for increased inter- national food production to save the world from star- vation.

Formation of a committee to investigate the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency (CEMA) is the next item on the Commons agenda. It was this agency which was respon- sible for the destruction of 28 million eggs earlier in the year. Opposition members, who have hounded the government about the wasted food, agreed to head directly into debate on formation of the committee as soon as the throne speech was approved. Increased production to fight inflation was a major point in the throne speech, and Mr. MacEachen used a similar theme Wednesday in his speech on the international food situation. With some countries facing serious shortages already, greater world production of food is needed as a long-term solution, he said. Well-off countries will have to provide increased food aid to less-fortunate nations, but developing countries should put food production ahead of industrial development, the new external affairs minister said. Formation of the committee to investigate egg marketing was promised by Prime Minister Trudeau. The marketing agency said it had to destroy the eggs because they were rotten, a disclosure that brought charges of incompetence and mismanagement from opposi- tion members and consumer groups.
