High Court To Hear Free Speech Cases Detroit Youths Arrested Jv In Bombing Conspiracy DETROIT (AP) Eleven youths, including two girls, were charged Monday with conspiring to bomb public facilities in the Detroit area In what was described by investigators as an anti-establishment plot. The defendants, described by police as "hippy types". The peace advocates tried to set up tables and hand out antiwar leaflets. The terminal police threatened arrest if they did not leave. Port Authority officials said the war protesters were free to press their views on travelers at terminal entrances and exits and on surrounding SCREEN ROOMS By Whitman There Is A Difference WASHINGTON (AP) Two appeals testing the limits of free speech in America's fast-paced society confront the Supreme Court when lt returns today from a two-week recess. Together, the cases question whether rights granted by the Constitution in a more casual time should be trimmed by authorities to spare citizens from nuisances. Except for this common theme, the appeals are diverse. One centers on the Rev. Vernon C. Lyons, a Baptist minister in Chicago. The other concerns two New York groups protesting the war in Vietnam. Mr. Lyons decided on a spring day in 16 to head for the city's Monroe St. parking lot which can accomodate 3,000 cars and to place under the windshield wipers of parked cars small paper pamphlets containing the biblical book "The Acts of the Apostles." He took his wife, four of their children and two other parishioners of the Ashburn Baptist Church with him. They worked their wav through the lot. After a while they were stopped and told there would be no objection if they stood at the lot's entrance and exit to distribute the tracts to motorist but that they could not remain on the lot itself. The minister refused to obey, was arrested, convicted of violating a littering regulation and fined $25. The Vietnam protest groups, Veterans and Reservists to End the War in Vietnam and the Fifth Avenue Vietnam Peace Parade Committee, decided in the fall of 1966 to take their arguments into the Port Authority bus terminal on Manhattan's West Side. Through this world's busiest bus terminal pass more than 200,000 people a day, many of them servicemen. were held in lieu of $25,000 bond each and face a possible 25 years in prison if convicted. Among the targets hit in the alleged plot were several police-owned cars, the Central Intelligence Agency office in nearby Ann Arbor, a U. S. Army vehicle at a recruiting office parking lot and a draft board office In suburban Rose-ville. The bombings dated back to Aug. 30, when a dynamite blast caused extensive damage to a patrolman's car parked at the 13th Precinct Police station in Detroit. The arrests were announced by Detroit Police Commissioner Johannes Spreen, who said eight more youths including two other girls were being sought on warrants issued Saturday. Ranging in age from 18 to 24 years, the defendants were charged specifically with "conspiracy to place explosives with intent to damage property." Lt. William McCoy of the Detroit Police Special Investigation Bureau said there was no evidence that the youths a racially mixed group were members of any formal organization. Some of those arrested were former students at Wayne State University, police said, but none is enrolled at the present. Investigators said the bombings apparently were of an "anti-establishment, anti-government" nature. Cooperating in the investigation, Spreen said, were FBI agents, State Police, and several detectives from police departments in the metropolitan Detroit area. Some 40 to 50 men were involved in the probe, he said. Thrpp nf thntp rharcreri In NOW-lnternational Electric HOT WATER HEAT WITHOUT PLUMBING Land Grant Claimant Faces Trial ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) The trial of militant Spanish-American land grant claimant Reles Lopez Tijerina begins today, seventeen months after the armed raid on a small rural courthouse In northern New Mexico. Tijerina and nine others will stand trial on charges of kidnaping, assault on a jail and false imprisonment growing out of the raid in June 1967 that startled New Mexicans and set off one of the biggest manhunts in the state's history. Tijerina and the others were arrested after a group of armed men stormed into the sleepy village of Tierra Ama-rilla, took over the courthouse, wounded three law enforcement officers and fled with several hostages, including a newsman. Tijerina and his co-defendants all pleaded innocent of the charges at a preliminary hearing in September after months of legal maneuvering. The courthouse raid was the culmination of months of unrest in northern New Mexico that included haystack burnings and fence cutting in a dispute over land granted early settlers by the King of Spain. , Tijerina was convicted in U.S. District Court last year in connection with a takeover of a Forest Service campground. The conviction is under appeal. Tijerina is leader of the Alliance of Free City States, a group of Spanish-Americans who claim title to the millions of acres once under the Spanish land grants. The Alliance, or Alianza, as its members call It, has been less active in recent months, and a politically oriented group called the People's Constitutional Party appears to be replacing it. Tijerina was the PCTP's candidate for New Mexico governor until the New Mexico Supreme Court ruled him ineligible for the ballot because of his federal conviction. The party placed the names of candidates on the ballot for state offices, but most PCP candidates polled less than 1,000 votes. The state's case against Tijerina was weakened last January when courthouse jailer Eulogio Salazar was found near his northern New Mexico home beaten to death. He was to be a star witness in the prosecution's case. No one has been charged in his death.

Bishops May Evade Encyclical WASHINGTON (UPD-The nation's Roman Catholic bishops began considering Monday a pastoral letter that would permit Catholic couples to use contraceptives if the practice does not conflict with their conscience. The bishops, more than 220 members of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, discussed the letter in closed session in the wake of controversy over Pope Paul's encyclical condemning artificial birth control as immoral. No details of the proposed letter were made public, but a spokesman said it dealt directly with the right of a Roman Catholic couple, after examining their own consciences, to use contraceptives despite the Pope's encyclical. The letter, if approved, could put the U.S. Roman Catholic hierarchy in the same position as the bishops of Canada and several Western European nations. But being generally more conservative, the American bishops were expected to temper any acknowledgement of the rights of conscience with strong admonitions to seriously consider the Pope's encyclical. Newsmen were told at a press briefing that the bishops were given until Tuesday afternoon to submit in writing any proposals for revising the letter, drafted by Bishop John J. Wright of Pittsburgh.
