WWII SUBMARINE VETERANS TO MEET . .HOUSTON. (AP)--The 17th annual convention of the United States Submarine Veterans of World War II will be held today through Sunday here. "We're a gun group," said convention chairman William N. Hollis. "We don't do much except ' get together, and tell old sea stories and elect "'officers for next year. · , . "Our purpose is to perpetuate the memory of -submarine'men and subs lost during World War n. That's why we don't need to be a continuing organization because if we do our job while we are are .living we have, served our purpose," Hollis said.' - . , v -. About 400 veterans are expected to attend the meet, he said. CORPUS CHR1STI TIMES, Wed., Aug. 18, 1971 3C W Call Israeli Spy Ring Said Discovered BEIRUT UP) -- An Israeli spy ring has been uncovered in Lebanon, police reported today. . · A spokesman said a Lebanese and an Iraqi have been arrested and charged with spying on the Lebanese army and the Palestine 'guerrilla movement in south Lebanon after receiving training in Israel. ·· Marines Keep Up With Navy By FRED HOFFMAN AP Military Writer WASHINGTON - Navy enlistment and reenlistment percentages increased in the first year under tradition-shattering Adm. Elmo R. Zumwalt Jr., but the "no-compromise" Marines did about as well. The results surprised some who had expected the Navy, with its relaxed rules on hair, dress and lifestyle, to far outstrip its tough brother-service in attracting and holding men. Although leaders of both services have denied any feud, there has been an unspoken, rivalry reflecting diametrically opposite philosophies. After Z u m w a l t became chief of naval operations on July 1, 1970, he pledged himself "to improving the quality of Navy life in all respects and restoring the fun and zest of going to sea." But Gen. Leonard F. Chapman, .Marine Corps commandant, has declared: "We're continuing to train Marines the way we've-always trained them. No compromises, no shortcuts . . . " Now, figures compiled for The Associated Press show the Navy reached 102.2 per cent of its goal for enlisting new sailors in the 1971 fiscal year ended June 30, Zum- vvalt'e first year as CNO. It signed up 75,113. The previous year, the Navy hit 101.8 per cent of its goal, enlisting 96,251 men for what was then a bigger Navy. The enlistment gain from the "old Navy" to' the .."new Navy" eras thus was only four-tenths of 1 per cent. ' M e a n w h i! e, the Marine Corps attained 101.2 per cent of its objective for new Leathernecks, gaining 54,828 recruits in the recent 1971 fiscal year while refusing to soften its ways. This was 1.3 per cent better than the year before when the Marines enrolled 67,679 new men for a larger corps. In the important area of retaining men in service, the Navy upped its second-hitch reenlistment record from 10 per cent in "fiscal 1970 to 17 per cent in fiscal 1971, when Zumwalt came aboard. And the Navy career reenlistment rate rose to 90 per cent in fiscal 1971 from 84 per cent the year earlier. Keenlistment. in this veteran group is generally high because career sailors have put in significant time toward retirement and pensions at 20 years of service. Marine second-hitch reen- listments were at a low level of 7.8 per cent last fiscal year. But this was a jump from the 4.7 per cent in fiscal 1970, paralleling the Navy's improvement trend. Reenlistment of career Marines also gained, from 78 per cent in fiscal 1970 to 82.9 per cent in fiscal 1971. Navy strength is at 622,000; the Marines at 212,000. Police are seeking other members of the ring, he added. GENE CARTER'S Medical Piaia .

In an Associated Press survey yesterday, the reaction of the union leaders to the administration request ranged from a flat refusal to statements that the matter would be referred to legal counsel. One plumbers union local in New Mexico went back to work without s e t t 1 i n g its strike, but it did so before J. Curtis Counts, top federal la- ,bor mediator, announced the government move. Counts said the administration was asking for a halt to all curent strikes and a moratorium on new ones during the freeze and he hinted that legal action might be used to bar walkouts. There was no immediate comment from the AFL-CIO pending a meeting of its exec- . utive committee iu Washington today. Others were more willing to talk. "We are not going back to work," said Don Keenana, president of Local 1103 of the Comrnuications Workers of America, which has 38,500 persons on strike against the telephone company in New York State. · J.ohn Freigel, president of Local 7 of the International Typographical Union .said he won't order 400 striking print- ers back to work at the Pittsburgh Press Co. unless told to do so by international union officials. "All.I can. say is it looks like the lawyers opened up a whole new ftallfield for us with this one," Feigel said. "We'll just have to see what the union's legal counsel advises us to do." In Denver, ITU international President John J.. Pilch refused to comment oh the Pittsburgh strike situation. Frank Obuch, president of United Automobile Workers Local 105, said taat if his 1,400 members on strike against the Aluminum Co. of America in Newburgh Heights, Ohio, went back they would be "double losers." He said they had already lost the right to any wage increase and would also lose the noneconomic issues that precipitated the June 30 walkout. In Euclid, Ohio, some 700 members of the Office and Professional Workers Local 49 and 2,300 factory workers, members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, have been on strike for 2% months. Arnold Shamis, Local 49 president, said his members would not care about a $5,000 fine if ordered back to work "unless we were assured the company would negotiate in good faith." Spokesmen for the North Jersey Newspaper Guild said their strike against the Newark Evening News would continue but that talks will center on job security rather than wage demands. Two Memphis union leaders i n d i c a t e d their members would not abide by the administration request. "We are not going back to work," said the b u s i n e s s manager of the Brewery and Soft Drink Workers, who- are striking Pepsi Cola. "We were on strike before the President's actions were announced and we will continue to bargain for higher wages," said Earl Fisher of the Distributive Workers of America, striking the Mid- south Milling Co. in Memphis. The head of the Utility Workers Council, 'which has Been on strike for 99 days against the Consumers Power Co. in lower Michigan, said the union wanted "to check the legality of this thing." In Houston, where 700 asbestos workers have been out for six weeks, the union spokesman said he did not know what their position would be and a management representative was critical of ttie administration request. "I think, frankly, it's kind of foolish to go back to work without a contract," said William 0. Daily, president of the Houston Insulation Contractors Association. "You have to face it eventually. "We've been on strike no\v six weeks. If we go back to" work, at the end of 90 days, if you don't have anything settled, we'd have another strike again. You can't hide your head in the sand and say in 90 days all your problems will go away. You might as well get them settled now." Phone 884-7759 2 great sales for juniors Our shirt sale.
