Compromise Bill On Smoking Warning WASHINGTON (AP)-A edfl. tinder it ill cigarette packag* |f«ssional compromise wii es and cartons must carry this reached today on legislation to label in a conspicuous posi require warnings rette smoking. against ciga* Court Overrules Ban On Parades Without Permits JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A federal appeals court has struck down city ordinances banning parades without permits but civil rights demonstrators here still face arrest if they march on the State Capitol. TI-e Capitol has been the main target of the largely Negro demonstrations here for three weeks. Nearly 1,000 have been arrested. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans issued an injunction Wednesday halting enforcement of three Jackson ordinances dealing with public parades and distribution of handbills. "We'll abid-a by the court order," said Chief of Detectives M.B. Pierce, who had led the police force's "instant arrest" squads. Although the city technically didn't have to obey the appellate court action until it received formal notice, the police radio network told officers to end arrests under the three city ordinances shortly after court acted in New Orleans. tioa: "Caution: Cigarette Smoking May Be Hazardous To Your Health." The compromise bars the Federal Trade Commission from requiring any warning in advertising earlier than July 1, 1969. Congress may take another look at the matter before that date. A Senate • House committee worked out the compromise from differing bills passed by the two branches of Congress. The committee's decisions are subject to ratification by the Senate and House. The principal differences were as to advertising and as to the position of the warning on cigarette packages. The Senate bill would have blocked any requirement for a warning in advertising before 1968. The House bill would have blocked it permanently. The Senate bill would have required t.'• the warning label on package., and cartons of cigarettes be on the front. The House ordered it on the side. The compromise says only that the warning must be in a conspicuous place. The Senate bill proposed a $100,000 fine for violation of the measure. The House bill carried a $10,000 penalty which was included in the compromise. Robert Kennedy's No Softie Manhattan Mercury—3 Thursday, July 1, 1985 •y MARTHA COLE WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Robert F. Kennedy lakes physical fitness in stride. He has no formula and no advice to the lazy. "I Jofl't do any pushups or anything lik« that," the New York Democrat said in a quickie interview. He simply skis, swims, climbs a mountain, hikes, sails, skin dives, plays baseball, ice skates and throws a mean football around. He's off Friday to shoot some rapids on the Yampa and Green Rivers in Colorado and Utah, taking his wife and at least five of their nine children. It's a typical vacation for Kennedy. He is seldom not doing something. When Kennedy was attorney Harvard student. Now 39, he is 5 feet 10 and weighs 165. He had never climbed a mountain. But the Canadian government named a peak in honor of his late brother, ttoe president. Last March Sen. Kennedy climbed that mountain, up near the Alaskan border. "He was tougher than we thought; he's a pretty rugged fellow," one of the veteran climbers said of Kennedy. When John F. Kennedy was president, Robert Kennedy joined the craze for 50-mile hikes. He set out early one cold February morning in 1963 and walked 50 miles in 17 hour*. Kennedy includes his wife Ethel and their children in the games and sports.
