CAMBRIDGE Mass AP The boys who learned their first lesson in the slums when they probably never dreamed of col lege have made their mark at Harvard Harvards deans said Thurs day the college has won its gam ble on more than 200 youths it has admitted since 1957 who never would have qualified if judged on their college board test grades The 200 chosen partly for their courageous response to a povertystricken upbringing are no ordinary scholarship holders Most were raised in city slums Many attended unaccred ited high schools More than 50 per cent are Negroes A few are the sons of maids and migrant The results of one of the first college recruiting efforts of its kind were termed amazing by the dean of admissions Fred L Glimp in an interview Eightyfive per cent of those selected have graduated a number with honors and one with a Rhodes scholarship The students have kept pace academically with theii more fortunate associates from the nations best preparatory schools and its academically strong public high schools And theyve done it Dean Glimp says without overcom pensating without burning all the bridges of their past behind them It began when Harvards deans were mulling

aid to India was be licved to be a main topic of dis cuss ion Unions attack N Viet trade By NEIL GILBRIDE AP Labor Writer MIAMI BEACH Fla UP Maritime unions meet ng here Thursday reportedly will consider boycotting oreign ships including those of Allied nations hat trade with North Viet Nam The boycott in ef fect would close US ports to hundreds of foreign ves sels A spokesman for the AFLCIO Maritime Trades Department said the International Longshoremens As sociation which imposed a ioycott against US wheat shipments to the Soviet Union two years ago will propose the new boycott The spokesman said such a boycott would affect ships of Great Britain France Norway Italy Greece United Arab Re public and other nations that have dealt with North Viet Nam The ILA is seriously consid ering refusing to load any such Reds claim violation of ban treaty By DORIAN FALK GENEVA AP The Soviet Union Thursday denounced flights of American nuclear bombers as a violation of the 1963 partial test ban treaty The United States rejected the charge as false and mere propaganda The two nuclear powers clashed in the 17nation disarm ament talks when Soviet nego tiator Semyon K Tsarapkin read a memorandum by his government He claimed the Spanish coastal area was being contaminated after the crash ol an American B52 with nuclear bombs last montli The Soviet memorandum government said the considers this a flagrant violation of in ternational law and of the 196S Moscow treaty Tsarapkin said the memorandum was directed to all states and constituted an appeal for termination of these flights US chief delegate William C Foster declined to go into the substance of the Soviet statement saying One is led to wonder what purpose lies beyond the repeti tious and false allegations about this incident and why the Soviet delegate asked to be the first speaker today just to read a note delivered yesterday to my government by the Soviet gov ernment Presumably if the Soviet government had other than propaganda in mind it would have awaited a reply through diplomatic channels US delegation officials said the Soviet statement contained no direct or indirect threat of a Soviet withdrawal from the Moscow treaty The Soviet memorandum had this to say It may be said that this was merely an accident But the So viet government asks the ques tion What kind of a policy is this which allows such accidents to happen The Soviet government has warned the United States re peatedly on the danger of such flights but the United States did not heed our warnings What happened over the coast ol Spain shows that our warnings were well grounded Clearly it is necessary to stop the flights of planes carry ing nuclear bombs outside the national borders The Soviet government hopes that drawing the attention of the United States to these facts will lead to the termina lion of such flights Following the collision of the US B52 bomber and a jet tank er over the southern coast oi Spain only three of the bomb ers four nuclear bombs were recovered A search is still being made for the fourth in the Mediterranean off the coast a well as on land Confirm death from meningitis MONTEREY Calif

the end of an outbreak that claimed 15 lives and sick cncd about 100 servicemen ship the spokesman said ILA President Thomas W Gleason is expected to ask sup port of the boycott by the 28 oth er maritime unions meeting here today and Friday The spokesman said Gleason may even go a step further and propose applying the boycott to all ships of any nation that has sent even one vessel into North Viet Nam ports The people who have been trading with North Viet Nam are going to get hurt by this proposal if it goes through the Maritime Trades spokesman said He said federal officials have refused requests of the mari time unions to blacklist such ships as the United States once did to vessels trading with Cuba The State Department does not want to offend Great Brit ain France Norway Italy Greece and those other coun tries which have been making a pretty penny dealing with North Viet Nam the union spokes man said They have delivered hun dreds of tons of cargo to North Viet Nam and they have the gall to come to US ports he said While Gleason with the sup port of other maritime unions boycotted US wheat shipments to the Soviet Union in 1964 it took White House action to per suade them to resume loading the Sovietbound ships Charged in crash that killed wife a 1 e Kurd 43 Alexander was charged with manslaughter Thursday in the death of his wife in a onecar accident here Wednesday
