(UPI) 'Space Traveler' Defends Stories Crime Neivs Curbs Hit By Cooper By D. G. LAWRENCE Sentinel Tallahassee lurea TALLAHASSEE The American Bar Association's recommendations of new restrictions on dissemination of information in criminal cases were scored here by Circuit Court Judge Richard A. Cooper, Orlando, Monday. Cooper is a candidate for democratic nomination to succeed retiring Justice El-wyn Thomas on the Florida Supreme Court. Speaking before the capital city i a i Club, Cooper said no reasonable newsman or judge condones any effort by lawyers to try their cases in the press. "PRESENT codes of ethics of the Florida Supreme Court provide sensible and adequate sa feguards against abuses," he declared. "Trial judges and trial lawyers with experience in upholding the rights of society in our courtrooms know our citizens must be aware of crime and its effects on society to be able to defend themselves against the enemy on our streets and in our cities," Cooper continued. The revised ABA code, he said, "Goes far beyond any need to protect the accused from 'prejudicial publicity in the courtroom." "THEY THROW out of balance even further the scales of justice in favor of the criminal without protecting the rights of either the innocent or society," he said. The new ABA recommendation not only limits release of crime information by lawyers and judges but would censor from public knowledge release of such information by law enforcement officers, Cooper explained. TV Station LITTLE ONES "I can help you put it to-gether now, Dad. I read the book of Instructions." Vietnam Casualties WASHINGTON (UPI) The Defense Department Monday identified 176 U.

Tiny welding flaws in the second stage of the Saturn moon ocket have prompted a new series of tests before astronauts man the flight, officials said Monday. The Marshall Space Flight Center said none of the flaws is believed serious enough to cause failure. THE NEW tests, called cryogenic prooftesting, will start with the fourth flight version unless a decision is made to man the third Saturn V. The first cryogenic testing is scheduled for March 18-25.

(UPI)-Car-roll Watts' story that a space ship landed In his pasture last year and six little men from Mars took him for a ride fell out of orbit Monday and burned up. Watts first said the whole thing was a hoax. Then he said it wasn't. He said he was threatened with harm, if he didn't call it a hoax and deliberately failed a lie detector test. The technician who administered the test said it is impossible deliberately to fail a lie detector test. WATTS SAID an artist selling art lessons got him involved in the first place by getting him to try to sell some doctored Polaroid pictures to Life magazine showing little blond men and a bullet-shaped spacecraft, and then hypnotized him to fix the story in his mind. He did not name the artist. An Amarillo, artist revealed he hypnotized Watts last year, to "clarify" his story, and he thought Watts was sincere. "I THINK I better go along and label it a hoax in order to protect my family," the 29-year-old cotton farmer said. "I have law enforcement protection but they can protect you only so far." Watts said Saturday he was trying to get a Congressional investigation into his contentions that the spacecraft landed on his farm last year and he went for a ride on it, while the Martians told him of their fears that human space travelers would reach their planet and ruin it with war. KORD FITZ, a former instructor at Amarillo College and presently a teacher of clairvoyance, told the A a i 1 lo Globe-News Watts' story was the same Maitland Briefed On Road Work MAITLAND At Monday's city council meeting everyone behaved beautifully, every issue passed unanimously and the session was over in record time. The full council approved the planning and zoning commission recommendation that distance requirements between filling stations be granted through the new zoning ordinance rather than the building' code, which is part of the city code. MAYOR W. Laurence Parker Jr. briefed council on primary and secondary road re quests recommended by the Orange County Commission to the State Road Board for fiscal year 1968-69. He reported the work will be done on Horatio Avenue rather than on Maitland Avenue, as had been requested in the past. Plans call for four lanes with two parking lanes, curbs and gutters, plus sidewalks on both sides. Training Set CAPE TOWN France is to provide initial training for members of South Africa's fingerling submarine service, officials announced. The first of three French-built subs is due in South Africa early next year. Cuts Seeger Song Stanza Jinn ark tJfntM Dispatch To The Sentinel NEW YORK A Detroit television station cut the last stanza of an antiwar song performed by Peter Seeger Sunday night on "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour" on the Columbia Broadcasting System network. The song, "Waist Deep in the Big Muddy," is supposed to be about a tragedy that befalls an infantry platoon in World War II, but critics have interpreted the sixth stanza as being critical of President Johnson's conduct of the Vietnam War. ROBERT L. RIERSON, program director of De troit's WJBK-TV, said the decision to cut the sixth stanza was made last Friday following an advance screening of the program. He said the station felt that the song "calls the President, by inference, a big fool," adding, "whether you like Johnson or not, I don't think an entertainment program is the place to do this." In place of the sixth stanza, the station inserted a public service announcement and a local station promotion. IN NEW YORK, the network said it had received "less than a dozen calls" protesting Seeger's song. It was Seeger's second appearance this season on the Smothers Brothers Show When he made his first appearance on network television in 17 years on the show last September, "Big Muddy" was cut entirely from the program by CBS after it had been taped and Seeger protested the move as censorship. Seeger, who has been identified with left-wing causes throughout his career, had previously been blacklisted by the industry. Pound Fluctuates LONDON The pound sterling fluctuated sharply in a thin foreign exchange market Monday, with the rate dipping to $2.4042 at one stage. It recovered to $2.4057 at the close. rtrAwSfirJtkvxb JsMtAs 1 Close to a half million American service men are strapped in the strange conflict in Viet Nam. Many have already made the supreme sacrifice. The rest know they too must be prepared to die suddenly With the blood letting over there and the bickering of "do this and don't do that" over here with the tragedy of torturous human suffering over there and the unprecedented strange behavior over here, isn't it high time more of us think of our service men's plight, and let them know we are thinking them, praying for them? For example, a family we heard of, has been sending cookies regularly to several men in Viet Nam. They're not relatives; merely acquaintances, not even close friends. Here is a good suggestion if you want to do likewise Remember the baked goods must travel a long, long route. Wrap each cookie separately and tightly in foil or transparent wrap. Insulate the package on the inside with unsalted, unbuttered pop corn or Puffed cereal. Put the popcorn or Puffed cereal on the bottom and top and BETWEEN each row of cookies, preferably in a TIN container to insure against damage. In doing this, the men will receive cookies, not crumbs Any ex-service man who was stationed overseas knows such remembrances are deeply appreciated. RUSSELL A. COLE C. M.
