the issue of an NLF role in ne gotiations The NLF is the polit ical arm of the Communist guerrilla forces We will bargain on that at the conference table Goldberg told reporters But he empha sized

session of the legislature this year rested Friday with a reapportionment appeal which the State Supreme Court had under advisement The court completed argu ments Thursday on a suit chal lenging the constitutionality of a temporary redistricting plan adopted by a special session of the legislature in 1964 The tribunal gave no indica tion how soon it will decide the case If it rules In favor of a group attacking the plan the lawmak ers might have to be called back to adopt another one in time for the 1966 elections The issue hinges on whether subdistricts would be necessary in a county having more than one state representative fended his works before a Russian court by arguing that they were purely literary and nonpolitical The official Soviet news agen cy Tass reporting on the sec ond day of his trial said that however the facts convict him Sinyavsky and another writ er Yuli M Daniel face seven years in prison plus five years of Siberian exile on charges of antiSoviet propaganda in works smuggled to the West They pleaded innocent at the opening day of the trial Thurs day The court is closed to West ern newsmen Take live antitank rocket from body of US Marine BOSTON AP Marine Cpl

authorities said five earlier cases were treated and cured The first case was reported last Decem ber A Lackland spokesman said the 16000 basic trainees were restricted to the base to prevent spread of the disease outside the base and units were care fully separated within the base Slagle had been in training here about weeks The in cubation period of the disease is 10 to 12 days The sick men came from two separate basic training squad rons These squadrons were or dered isolated from others at the base A Lackland spokesman said 5000 graduates of basic training had been sent to advanced train ing at other bases in the last 10 days These bases arc Lowry at Denver Colo Chanute at Champaign 111 Keesler at Bi loxi Miss Sheppard at Wichi ta Falls Tex and Amarillo Tex AFB The spokesman said no reports of illnesses from these bases had been received The plaintiffs represented by David Belin Des Moines attor ney contend that unless county subdistricting is ordered the temporary reap portionment ian would not comply with the JS Supreme Courts oneman onevote decision Belin also contended the tem porary reapportionment plan is unconstitutional because it pro vides for more than 50 senators He said the 1904 state const utional amendment providing for a Senate of 50 members ap portioned on a population basis was perfectly constitutional by todays standards What the federal courts declared uncon stitutional early in 1964 he said was the 1928 amendment which said no county could have more than one senator Belin argued that as much of the state constitution should be salvaged as possible after the federally unconstitutional por tions were stricken and said this would leave the 50member limit on the Senate intact Bclin called subdistricting the critical issue in the case He said the allarge election system allowing Polk County residents to vote for 11 repre sentatives while residents of most other counties can vote or only one discriminates not only against voters in smaller counties but against rural dwellers and political minoriti ties in Polk County Belin said that one man one vote does not mean one man 11 votes in Polk County and one man one vote in Warren Coun ty He said testimony in the trial court brought out that no rural Democrat in Polk County could win nomination for the legisla ture in the 1964 primary elec tion because they were swamped in an avalanche of Des Moines votes Belin also cited general elec tion figures showing that al though one Republican led all candidates of both parties in a block of 23 normally Republi can Des Moines
