But we're not going to please all the students and we're not going to support all the activities students want to do." The program is now active at all seven state universities and ai four junior colleges, he said, and it is expected that the federal government will chip in money so the program can be extended to other junior colleges and private universities. So far, Bax said, the program has included clean - up campaigns, tutoring underprivileged children and for adults who need to pass examinations for jobs, and recreation programs. He said University of Florida students have set up a legal services center as part of the project. Consumer education classes, counseling, job training and entertainment will also be provided as the project grows, tie said. Bax said the job of the governor's staffers is to organize efforts on various college campuses. "What we're doing is going out and finding where students have ideas and assisting them with state resources," Bax said. "In every one of these programs, someone has had the idea before. But we know how to make tilings work." He said he hopes that the program can be used to keep peace in the cities next summer also. The project grew out of "Operation Concern," Kirk's pilot attempt to focus the resources of various state and local government agencies in Gainesville, he said. Bax said it is beneficial for the students because it gives them a chance to put the theories learned in class to the test in real-life situations. Parades, Flags, Bands Stir Memories Of 1918 l.oiil. from Page I John Seheffler, Hendry County Rod Cross chairman, had called for assistance and food, and bed clothing was taken to the Dominguoz Green camp, about two miles from a leveled camp, where the homeless lamilics were quartered.

One ambulance transported a dozen of I hose who suffered minors hurt here for treatment. The camp supervisor, Mar-garotta, suffered a fractured collar bone. She refused to remain in the hospital.

Leonard, 22, of ti;!2 Hibiscus, West Palm Beach, was let out on Pinewood Avenue, West Palm Beach, and the robbers drove away.

The U.S. government .view-that the Czech invasion has significantly Increased the threat in Europe was made clear earlier this week by a Defense Department letter to Cooper. The letter said the increased threat resulted both from the availability of forces and from the possible Warsaw Pact willingness to risk their use against NATO territory. The assembly, currently under the chairmanship of Ma-thias A. Mathlesen of the Icelandic Althing Parliament, also will hear reports on political, economic, military, scientific and education during its sittings in Brussels Palais Des Congres.

They said he seemed relieved. Dozens of city and federal officers took part in the sei zure of the Namers. To gain entry, one of them posed as the building superintendent seeking a gas leak. The elder Namer and Abdo were seized in the apartment, police said. Hussein fled down a fire escape, but was captured five hours later in Brookhn's Past New York district, police reported. Acting Dist. Atty. Elliot (iolden said the elder Namer, who came to the United States l.'i years ago and is a naturalized citizen, has a wife and three daughters in Yemen. "Aside from the gravity of the charges so far. there are strong ties outside the country, certainly family ties," (iolden told Judge T. Vincent Quinn. Quinn, who served in Congress with Nixon from l'JW to l'J51, rejected Golden's request that the three men be held without bail. He set a hearing for Tuesday, but Golden said he planned to present the case to a grand jury on that day. He also told reporters he planned to confer with the U.S. attorney about the possibility of charging the defendants under the federal law that provides a maximum of life In prison for conspiracy to assassinate a president or president-elect.

When the old-guard Communists emerged from the meeting, the whistling, jeering Czechs outside began exchanging insults with thorn-some unprintable. At least a score of fist fights broke out. Many sulfered minor injuries and police took several persons into custody. One man was chased by umbrella wielders who shouted, "Shame, Shame," at him. He ran up to a group of street workers who shoved and pum-meled him until police led him away, bleeding from one cheek. An old-guard member slapped a youth who said: "My friend was shot on Wencrslas Square by a Russian." A man shouted: "You murderers, long live Dubcek." Several old guard members demanded that the man who called them murderers be arrested for slander. Shanker, conceding there has been a racial polarization, commented that "the really-tragic thing" was that his union "has tried to create an alliance with the black community, going back many years. Now appeals for racial solidarity have become so great that all of this is lost." "Maybe," said McCoy, "what we are seeing Is the white racism everyone .;ow talks about." McCoy is a Negro. Shanker is white.
