(UPI) — A man who said he barely strayed onto the property of Northeast Utility's Millstone II nuclear plant wants an apology from Ihe firm for the security check it ran on him. Joseph Trotter, 22, is a nuclear reactor operator with security clearance on the ballistic missile submarine Kamehameha at the Naval Submarine Base in Groton. He said Tuesday he was hunting for a house May 11 when he made a wrong turn off Rope Ferry Road. "1 didn't get the length of ray car onto the plant properly," he said. When he saw signs identifying the plant, he said he backed up and turned around, but not before a Northeast security car spotted him. Trotter - said •. the security agent followed him for several hundred yards on an access road and three miles down Rope Ferry Road, but turned and sped off before Trotter could talk to him. The investigation was secret until May 20, when he was called from his ship to the Naval Intelligence Office to answer a state policeman's questions, Trotter said. He said he was disturbed by the nineday gap, during which he was investigated without his knowledge. A spokesman for Northeast Utilities said the incident was unfortunate and it would be easy to make a wrong turn onto the access road. One company executive called the investigation "an overreaclion to a man with a black beard driving a foreign car with California license plates." Trotter said he wrote Northeast, asking for an apology. Rent Subsidy Program Set For 52 Towns church built in 1868. Legislators Oppose Tight Bar Laws HARTFORD, Conn. (UPI) A Liquor Control Commission effort to sharpen laws prohibiting lewd activity in bars has been struck down by a legislative committee. Rep. James J. Clynes, D- Southington, acted Tuesday on behalf of the Regulations Review Committee. The com' millee, or its representative, must approve .'"regulations proposed by state agencies. He said the proposed curbs were so light it would be illegal for musicians to pass among tables or for a performer to hold his wife's hand at the bar. The proposed regulations would have prohibited entertainers from barinK their private parts, from, mingling, with or touching customers, or llrom simulating sex acts. The commission acted because police said they had problems curtailing lewil activity in bars under the prescnl vague regulations, which do not spell oul prohibited activity in detail.

NEW YORK 11'I'll - The King of Swing took a swi;-e at nostalgia freaks who admire only what happened \esteryear and fail to appreciate what's happening now in the music field. "There's latent around." Benny Goodman said, relaxing with his shoes off in his sparsely furnished New York apartment that makes an effective showcase for his art collection. "It's like baseball. There are always people who argue that there'll never be anyone like Joe DiMaggio or Babe Ruth. But DiMaggio and Ruth aren't playing any more, so forget it. Instead there's Har* Aaron or Johnny Bench. In the music field, there are still those who keep going tack to Louis Armstrong, Glenn Miller. Tommy Dorsey and me. "There are good musicians playing now. I see more good classical players than \an, but that's because I don't slay up until 2 am. You have to stay up four rjglils a week until 2 a.m.. to hear maybe one really good guy and listen to a lot of garbage. "It's like any other field — really great artists aren't that prevalent in any field." You don't have to be rostalgic to see Benny Goodman, however. At age 67, he keeps to a busy schedule, cuts records, and has just completed working with newspaper columnist Herb Caen on a pictorial biography he said Putnam's was planning to release Ihis fail In the television medium, he will appear as host and narrator of "Echoes Bright and Clear: A Discovery of American Music." The program is a Bicentennial special to be aired by PBS June 16, celebrating 200 years of American music. Goodman gels annoyed with the references today to "black" music, which he believes confuses an already mixed up field. "Black music'' What's thai? I don'l understand. There is black music in the same sense there's Jewish music or Greek music or Lithuanian music. But otherwise (here's no such thing." Goodman said. "There have been a lot of important black people m the music field, but whal makes music is a lot of people getting together to exchange exciting ideas - black, white, everybody-" "\Vhal docs amaze Goodman is the growth of the music business, particularly the record industry. "The record industry is a billion-dollar business." he said. "It's getting like the steel industry, and in a way it's gotten horrendous. It's a commercial industry- ran by a bunch of accountants and executives and they'll do anything for a one of two million selling record, "I remember 40 years ago when a friend of mine wanted to buy Columbia Records for a tax less Now I understand CBS Records, which used to be Columbia, grosses more money for CBS than the television side." Goodman was in New York only briefly, planning a trip to Iceland for a one-niehl stand. "Actually I'm going because they have great salmon fishing there and the fellow I'm rJayirg for happens to have a little stream..." He planned to leave New- York on a Wednesday, fish and then play Saturday night and return Sunday, which is a pretty good schedule for a man who has been in the music business for more than 50 years.
