Time Capsule to Reveal the Past WASHINGTON (AP) — Twentieth-century Americans will get their first look at some l&th-century photographs of two presidents and portraits of two others when -President Ford opens a Centennial time capsule. The cast iron safe being opened today for the first time since it was sealed in 1879 also contains autographs of thousands of prominent Americans of the day, a silver Tiffany inkstand and a pen dedicated to the era's favorite American poef, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. The inner glass doors of the safe are being unsealed in a ceremony at the Capitol's, Statuary Hall, where the safe was closed and locked in an 1879 ceremony attended by . President Rutherford B. Hayes, his cabinet and members of Congress. Mrs. Charles F. Diehm, a New York publisher and collector of the memorabilia of a generation of Americans who celebrated the nation's 100th birthday in 1876, had asked that the safe be opened this July Fourth by the nation's chief executive. Because of the press of other Bicentennial events, however, it is being opened three days early. The safe was exhibited at the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia, where visitors were asked to autograph the pages of large leather albums to be stored for posterity. When the exposition closed, Mrs. Diehm toured the country to obtain photographs and signatures of leading figures in politics, business and religion as well as orators and poets. She then put the articles in a Centennial safe and persuaded Congress to store it untouched for 10 decades. The safe contains a silver : HEINOLD COMMODITIES, INC. P.O. Box 1196 Phone 276-9131 1511 E.

INEZ PHILLIPS-MANAGER B!U CROTINGER - LUKE SCHWIETERMAN - CLYDE DIBBENS Tiffany inkstand used by those who signed the album and the pen, dedicated to Longfellow, used by many signers of the book. It also contains portraits of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. In addition, it contains a photograph of President Ulysses S. Grant who was in the White House in 1876, and a photograph of Hayes, whose first year as president began in 1877, the first year of the nation's second century. The thick iron outer doors of the safe were opened last January during ceremonies marking the beginning of the Bicentennial Congress. Some of the contents of the safe have been visible through the locked inner glass doors of the vault. One book in the safe gives some idea about the growth of the federal government in the past century. It contains the names of the 80,000 government employes on the payroll in 1876. There are now more than 2.8 million civilian federal employes. Supreme Court Rules on "Gag Orders' m ' ' . \^ '• D««-« 9 WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court has stopped just short of barring judges from trying to guarantee a criminal defendant a fair trial by limiting what the news media can report about his case. By unanimous vote Wednesday, the court struck down an order that sharply curtailed media reporting last fall about a sensational mass-murder case in Nebraska. The court's main opinion, written by Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, expressly refused to rule out the possibility that some restrictions on reporting might be permissible in some cases. Justices William J. Brennan Jr., Potter Stewart and Thurgood Marshall declined to sign the opinion and said they think restraining the press is never a permissible way to assure a fair trial. Two of the justices who did sign the Burger opinion — Bryon R. White,and John Paul Stevens — indicated they are close to agreeing ...with Brennan, Stewart and Marshall. That means five of the nine justices are either flatly against so-called "gag orders" or have expressed serious reservations about them. At the rate judges have been issuing the orders, it appears likely the question will come before the high court again. It was the court's first major decision on the twin constitutional issues of free press and fair trial since it overthrew the murder con. viction of Dr. Samuel Sheppard ten years ago on grounds of prejudical publicity. Since the decision in favor of the Cleveland osteopath, there have been 213 judicial orders curbing the media, according to a compilation by the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. White said he had "grave doubts" as to whether such orders could ever be justifiable. Stevens said judges may not, as the judge in the Nebraska case did, bar the reporting of information that- had been brought out in open court. He reserved judgment on whether the supression of information obtained in other Page 2 Garden City Telegram Friday, July 2,1976 ways should be allowed but said he agreed with most of what Brennan, Stewart and Marshall said on the question. In Nebraska, Lincoln County Judge Hugh Stuirt, who had issued the order, said he was "just doing his job.... Obviously I made a mistake if they (Supreme Court) overruled it." "We hope the decision will stop the trend toward issuance of restraining orders which deny the public's right to know what is going on in the courtrooms," said Larry Jinks, executive editor of the Miami Herald and president of The Associated Press Managing Editors Association. Museum Grand Opening by Remote Gontrol-from Mars ALCO WILL BE OPEN HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA WE WILL BE CLOSED MONDAY, JULY 5th CASH & CARRY LUMBER GARDEN BELLE LUMBER LUMBER LAND INC. PORTER LUMBER CO. WASHINGTON (AP) — With the help of a signal from the Viking 1 spacecraft orbiting Mars more than 200 million miles away, the new National Air and Space Museum is being dedicated as a Bicentennial addition to the Capitol Mall. The museum, with 10 acres of exhibit space, contains, imaginative dispays and crafts tracing the history of flight. It is expected to become one of the most popular tourist sites in Washington. "Confined within these walls and windows are the products of American men and women whose imagination and determination could not be confined," President Ford said in remarks prepared for today's ceremony. Surrounded by symbols of flight, Ford said the hallmark of the American adventure has been "a willingness — even an eagerness — to reach for the unknown." The Viking signal, which takes 18 minutes to travel to earth, will • activate a mechanical arm for the ribbon-cutting ceremony. A similar arm is installed on the Viking to scoop up samples of ' Martian soil: 1 ' : ' The Viking had been^scheduled to land on Mars on July 4, coinciding with the nation's Bicentennial celebration, but that was delayed because of difficulties in finding a non- hazardous landing site. Museum director Michael Collins, a former astronaut, expects an average of 50,000 visitors to the new facility daily. They will not feel jammed in. The glass and marble structure is two blocks long, a block wide, with an expansive central corridor and has glass- fronted bays soaring to more than 82 feet, from which are . suspended some of the most historic aircraft.
