James Westbrook (left) congratulates the cadet lieutenant colonel for achieving the best grade point in military science four. ' By AUSTIN SCOTT Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Residents of unheat'ed Resurrection City suffered through a miserably wet, cold and .muddy day and their spirits sagged noticeably as hazards to health mounted. But two more small-scale demonstrations were carried off Monday despite problems with the weather. The Rev. Ralph David Abernathy, leader of the Poor People's Campaign scheduled a meeting for today with members of an informal House-Senate committee working on legislation asked by campaign leadr ers. But an aide said privately that most of today would probably be spent trying to deal with one of the coldest, wettest spells of late spring weather the nation's capital has seen for years. About 150 mud-caked marchers' waded Monday from their mired campsite to the Agriculture Department to complain again that America's surplus food ought to be used to alleviate hunger at home. They had lunch at the deparU ment's cafeteria and left without paying the bill. The Rev. Jesse Jackson, 'who led them, said payment of the $292.66 tab would have to wait until someone determined whether the government might not owe that much to the poor. Then, as darkness brought a steady downpour, about 75 demonstrators gathered in raincoats and slickers to sing for an hour outside the apartment of Chairman Wilbur Mills, D-Ark., of the House Ways and Means Committee. George Wiley, chairman of the Welfare Rights Organization, has named several of his group to keep constant tabs on Mills so demonstrators will always know where he is as they try to pressure him into pushing for more money for welfare programs. The young man selected to watch the congressman's apartment said that Mills was home when the demonstrators ar- Sub Rescue Will Be Hard By FRED S. HOFFMAN AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Navy's .available rescue equipment would have difficulty saving crewmen from the submarine Scorpion if the missing vessel were.located deeper than 300 teet below the ocean's surface, a top Navy expert said today. Capt. William M. Nicholson, manager of the Navy's Deep Submergence Systems Project, said 'We are working essentially with equipment used in 1939" in saving men from the sunken submarine Squalus. The Squalus went down in 240 feet of water off New Hampshire. "There have been some improvements, but the equipment is basically the same," Nicholson said in an interview. The chief item in this equip- ment is a rescue bell which is | what he called favorable ocean I to moor a vessel over greater . _ • . r> • _•- c ;_~..i „„„ J;*:^-,A U,,(.. n*.n nr\t n/ftitnnnrl ' Hnnfhc f Jinn fhnt anrl nrlrlaH tlint lowered from a surface vessel and secured to a submarine hatch.-Sub crewmen are lifted to the-surf ace in the pressurized chamber. The Navy has been working on an advanced, rescue system, part of a broad underwater program costing an estimated $600 million. . But the first of a new breed of small rescue submarines capable of reaching depths of 3,500 feet will not be ready for use until 1970, Nicholson said. There are a number of deep- diving research subs .like the Navy's Alyin which can go down about 6,000 feet and the privately owned Aluminaut, which reportedly can reach depths of 15,000 feet. Nicholson said''they could be used for search purposes under conditions but are not equipped for rescue work. Adm. Thomas H. Moorer, chief of naval operations, told a news conference Monday night that the rescue bell could save trapped submarine crewmen from dred depths of "several hun- feet," depending on the condition' of the subarmine. An aide said the rescue bell could operate down to 650 feet. But later Nicholson indicated that operations with the bell at such a depth were not practical. The key, he said, is the ability of a rescue vessel to moor and hold its position over a submarine. For this reason, said Nicholson, it is "difficult to use effectively" this deeper than 300 feet. He said it is extremely hard Wastes Cited By DICK BARNES Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Navy wasted $5.9 million by manufacturing vast excess quantities of nonstandard aeronautical repair parts at four naval air stations, says the General Accounting Office. Investigators for the GAO, auditing arm of Congress, found bins filled with .five times as many parts as the Navy's own directives said were required. The newly released GAO report also said that ?2.2 million of the excess parts had been disposed of for a penny on the dollar. In its reply to the report, the Navy cited difficulties in trying to predict how many parts would be required. But it promised revamped procedures such as standardization of parts numbers and keeping track of how many parts have been used in BLYTHEVILLE PLAZA SHOPPING CENTER Cleaning Special Good Thru May 30 3 SHORT GARMENTS Beautifully Cleaned and Pressed Ask About Our Fur Cold Storage and Free Winter Garment Storage Blytheville Business College FARMERS BANE DLDG.

The excess parts were manufactured at naval air stations at Quonset Point, R.I.: Jacksonville, F!a.; North Island, Calif., and Alameda, Calif. Nonstandard aeronautical parts are items that have restricted usage peculiar to a particular aircraft or engine, and can be easily manufactured by the Navy. Demand for such parts is expected to be low. depths than that, and added that bad weather—with accompanying heavy seas—would make it even tougher because of pitch and roll. Waves as high as 20 feet were reported in the Scorpion search area. A sub in trouble normally would send to the surface a line attached to a buoy, with a telephone inside the buoy. A rescue vessel finding the buoy could then speak to the trapped crewmen and also use the line as a guide for lowering the rescue bell. The Scorpion was • also equipped with what is called "buoy and ascent" gear. This involves the donning of inflated vests which carry men to the surface. A sailor would get into a submarine chamber below the hatch. The hatch' would then be pressurized and the sailor would float to the surface, exhaling gradually to let out high-pressure air and avoid the fatal air embolism. rived, but did not come to his fourth floor window during the singing. Conditions at .Resurrection City's site near Lincoln Memorial worsened steadily throughout the day as acres of soft dirt left by last week's rains turned quickly into ever-widening pools of shin-deep mud. Dr. Edward Mazique, a medi- cal officer, said there is a considerable threat of upper respiratory ailments or an influenza epidemic, but wouldn't say whether the camp should be evacuated. "That's a matter for campaign officials to decide," he said, adding that doctors, are moving as quickly as possible to Court Hems In Dissenters By HARRY SCHWEID Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court lias hemmed in dissenters by limiting the actions they can take in the name of free speech. Monday's 7-1 decision directly upheld the 1965 federal law that made destruction of draft cards a crime. More than that, the ruling by Chief Justice Earl Warren riddled the idea that otherwise legal actions are shielded from prosecution as "symbolic speech." "We cannot accept the view," said Warren, "that an apparently limitless variety of conduct can be labled. 'speech' whenever the person engaging in the conduct intends thereby to express an idea." These words may cut the legal ground from under other forms of Vietnam war protest- such as exhorting young men to resist the draft or spilling blood on draft card files. Whether the ruling will spur prosecution of draft card burners is problematic. In the 33 months the law has been on the books the government has brought 26 cases and won 16 convictions. Since April 1967, when the U.S. Circuit Court in Boston declared the law unconstitutional, only .four or five prosecutions have been brought. The pace may pick up now that the Supreme Court has acted, but the Justice Department —without commenting directly on the ruling—is discouraging such thoughts. i . Evidence is becoming hard to get, one official said, because | protesters are taking such evasive steps as burning their draft cards in a huddle. David Paul O'Brien of Cambridge, Mass., the central figure in the case decided Monday, burned his card at the South Boston Courthouse on March 31, 1966, in full view of a sizable crowd that included several FBI agents. Warren said O'Brien was convicted for the "noncommunica- tive impact of his conduct and for nothing else." However, the Chief Justice also said, even the "alleged communicative element" in his conduct does not prevent his prosecution because of the First Amendment's free speech guarantees. "This court has held that when 'speech' and 'nonspeech' lements are combined in the same course of conduct," Warren said, "a sufficiently impor- :ant governmental interest in regulating the nonspeech element can justify incidental limitations on first amendment freedoms." To the court's only dissenter, Justice William 0. Douglas, the jig question remains unanswered. That is: Whether men can be drafted or sent to jail for resisting without a congressional declaration of war.
