'Youth Movement Shows Lack of Direction at Ft. Collins Meet By RICHARD T. COOPER The Los Ang3las Times Ft. .Collins, Colo. -- Like hod carriers and carpenters building the Tower of Babel, loaders ol the nation's'activist youth movement are beginning to shout at vists who attended this confer- one another in strange tongues, with crippling results. This judgment emerged this weekend from what may have been the most unlikely event of 19S9 -- a free-wheeling conference of about 200 student activist sponsored by that paragon of well-mannered dispassion, the League of Women Voters. The participants demonstrated clearly that a great deal of energy and idealism remains among young people and that many have strong impluses toward action. There was little agreement on what kinds of action ought to be taken, however. More'importanl, the advocates of different approaches often were scornful or openly hostile to one another and to individuals with different ideological stances. Thus it appeared that even the comparatively moderate acti- .. ... chair revolutionaries" and saic erice have become disillusioned college radical movements were large-scale, consensus efforts and have begun concentrating on individual projects alone or in small groups. The variety of these projects was suggested one evening when several dozen participants in an informal session listed their goals. Some of these goals involved wilding black cultural centers, lighting racism among rich whites, organizing health care lor the Black Panther party, drumming up investment capital V ghetto businessmen, supply- ng legal service to SDS Weathermen, and importing radicalism to schools like Notre Dame. iition Faces Marcos in Re-Election Bid By JOHN NANCE Associated Press Writer MANILA (AP) - With national elections; only three weeks away v '.P.resident Ferdinand E.

The Commission on Elections predicts the greatest turnout of voters in the 24 years since the nation gained independence from the United States. This is mainly due to increased numbers who have reached the-21- year-old minimum age for voting. About 80 pcr-cent of the 11 million registrants are expected to mark ballots. Violence, which frequently mars Philippine elections, is present but appears to be running significantly behind- the record-breaking pace in the 1967 off-year elections for senatorial seats, and municipal and provincial offices. Few -.major differences separate the platforms of Marcos and Osmena. They generally are compatible on foreign policy --although Osmena expresses stronger support for ties with the United Slates. Marcos has stressed the successful performances of his administration in building schools and roads and in helping develop the fast-growing "miracle rice", which made the nation self-sufficient in the cereal for Hie first time. Osmena's attack has concentrated on corruption in government, high taxes, high prices and economic instability. H argues that these tilings, togetl er with widespread and seriou crime spawned by uncmploy ment, are dragging down th nation and frightening awa much-needed foreign capital.

Describing his own techniques for building community organizations, Alinsky said young activists sometimes embark on ventures that strengthen their opponents rather than their own :orces, particularly by provoking adverse reaction among persons not directly involved.

Yet Sunday afternoon, when the Chicanes formally addressed a plenary session of the conference about their problems, many participants did not bother to attend and the session ended with the Chicanos singing protest songs to rows ol nearly empty seats. To several participants who discussed the conference some what ruefully, the lesson of the Chicanos in particular and o: the three days in general seems to be that when everyone "does his own tiling" the result can be something very akin to selfishness. Polio Victim Wins Damages From Drug Firm NEW YORK {AP) - A 56- year-old Baldwinsville, N.Y. man was awarded $514,166 in d a m a g e s by a supreme Court jury on his claim that the use of polio vaccine caused him to become a victim of the disease. A jury of 10 men and 2 women sitting in a month-long trial before Justice Francis T. Murphy found in favor of James F. Cole, a cook in a Veterans Administration hospital at Syracuse, N.Y., until he became ill in June 1962. His attorney, Alfred S. Julien told the jury that Cole took Sabin oral polio vaccine Type III in May 1962 as part of a mass innoculation program conducted in the Syracuse area. Julien said thai Cole become 11 about two weeks later and became paralyzed in June 1962. During the trial Julien claimed the manufacturer of the drug, Charles Pfizer and Co., Inc., was negligent in failing to warn the public of dangers associated with the use of Type HI vaccine by persons over 40 years of age. He claimed that the live vaccine could revert from a weak to a virulent stage.

Nor is any other animal, for civilization in this sense belongs to man alone. But if'by civilization you mean- a society in which many, non-thinking individuals live and work together, then-you will have to rank the termites, primitive.insects though they are,-close to the top of. the Millions of these little creatures live together in castles or cities made out of bits of chewed wood. Termites are far from helpless. They are highly organized in various social castes, each one with its special jobs, and they can create immense damage because they chew and digest wood, weakening whole houses. Bees also live in highly organized societies, and so do ants. The aggressive, enterprising ant is the most successful creatures on the earth in point of numbers, for : there are more ants t h a n any other animal. Considered for their social organization, we think that termites, bees and ants rank about equal. 9-15 (El my Milliard of Muskcgon, Mich., wins a prize for this question.

March on Washington By AARON LATHAM | The Washington Post WASHINGTON - A split be- Iween radical and liberal wings of the peace movement widened Sunday as one group met here to plan a mass march on Wash- ingon Nov. 15 while local branches of another group came out against the march. Leaders of the Student Mobilization Committee, gathered al George Washington University Sunday to organize a Washington march, warned the Vietnam moratorium leaders that if (hey do not support the strike, the peace movement will leave them behind. Meanwhile, Jonn.,' the local moratorium ntcrnational student strike Nov. .4.

Jonathan Brandow, a mobilization leader from Brown University, sa "If (he morator-i urn won't work with us, we'll work around them. When you .ake unity as an excuse for \va- .ering down our stand, it's vrong." But speaking for the New Stephen student, By TED SELL The Los Angeles Times WASHINGTON - Defense Secretary Melvin R. Laird said Monday the Pentagon has enlisted in President Nixon's war against inflation with a program that will cut about 500,000 jobs and avoid letting contracts worth $8 billion in the fiscal year ending next June 30. A top Laird aide said the cuts will be across the board of defense activities -- with a large share to be absorbed by industries doing business with the Defense Department. Laird previously said he had cut $4.1 billion in proposed spending for the current fiscal year. What the Pentagon did Monday was relate these cuts, plus others not yet pinjxiinted, to their general effect on the overheated economy. Nixon has been engaged in a major battle to halt the steady rise in U. S. prices and general inflationary trends in the economy. Administration economists have sought to control the up vard trend by virtually every method short of government- mposed wage and price con- rols. The White House has maintained an air of outvvnrd confidence that steps taken ear- ier in the Nixon administration are beginning to have an effect. The main problem is to hold dees at a reasonably steady evel while insuring that goods md services are available in desired quantities -- and at the ame time making sure large- cale unemployment and busi- iess recession do not occur. Defense Comptroller Robert C. Moot told a Pentagon press onference Monday that steps Iready approved by Laird as jart of the anti-inflation battle vill begin to take effect by pring, resulting in lower fac- ory employment for defense in- uslry and "freeing" additional men who would otherwise be in uniform or employed by the "'entagon. Defense spending, Moot noted, accounts for about 80 per cenl if government expenditures for all goods and services. Hence. Colorado Sets Jid Opening on ,000 Vehicles DENVER.

A leader of the Washington mobilization said that his groui plans to distribute 300,000 leaf lets here in the city, buy spo radio announcements, and senc up big gas-filled balloons to advertise the march and strike. Speaking for the New Haven moratorium,' Cohen said mem- jers of his group would not support the student strike any more than they would support .he Washington march.

Bids will be opened Oct. 31. For the first time the pur- hases will include vehicles for ounties, cities and school dis- ricts ;is well as for the slate tself. A law passed by the legislate, Middlemist said, allows ie slate to purchase for the ocal governments if they re uest it. He estimated about 300 of the urchases will be for police atrol-type cars. Included will e 156 for the state patrol wilb nost of the others for local gencies--principally for sher- "f's offices. Middlemist said a ·ninimum of 125 patrol cars ave been ordered by local gencies and the number is cx- ecled lo incease. Also included will be at least JX) passenger cars, 60 station vagons, 165 half-ton pick up rucks and smaller numbers of -Ion, 2-lon, 1%-ton and 3-lon rucks. The purchase also will in- lude about 100 miscellaneous chicles principally vans, four- vheel drive cars and similar ypes.

With this kind of cutback -which his projections show will continue through the fiscal year -- the 2 million American wage- earners in defense industries will soon begin to feel the effects in the form of reduced ' overtime, fewer Wrings and -in time -- layoffs, Moot predicted. He said the economic effects ,vould be spread across the dc- "ense procurement speclrum, :ience would have regional ef- iecls about in proportion to a region's concentration of defense industries. Moot said the Pentagon's low- red procurement program is in five major product areas: Aircraft and parts; shipbuilding and ship parts; communications , equipment; ordnance and ac- - ccssories, and electronics.
