Please, Mom, No Crackers CARTHAGE, Mo. (AP)-"M«n, I don't think I ever want to see another graham cracker." Michael Randall of Joplin, Mo., summed up the feelings of 822 hungry Boy Scouts who stumbled out of a Civil Defense shelter early Sunday after a 36-hour survival test. The boys were supposed to live on CD survival crackers, but there weren't enough of those, so graham crackers were issued — eight to a meal, with only a few swigs of water to wash them own. Ronnie Hailey, 11, Joplin, was asked what he got out of the test. "A weak stomach," he replied. Randall entered the shelter Fri day as an 11-year-old, and came out a 12-year-old.

Informed sources said Ben-Gurion objected to attempts to dictate- foreign policy 'by the» cloak and dagger boss whose name still is concealed by rigid security precautions. The premier also reportedly opposed direct action tactics against the German scientists along the lines of the kidnaping of Adolf Eidimann from Argentina.
