(AP)-An estimated 100 million gallons of , untreated sewage was dumped in the Mississippi River Thursday at a treatment station, after asphalt clogged intake screens of the sewage facility for the second time in 10 days, a spokesman said. The sticky substance originally entered the sewage system April 30, after an industrial accident at a U.S. Gypsum Co., plant, and about 150 million gallons of raw waste matter had to be released in the river at that time while the filter screens were cleaned. Rainwater forced out a renewed flow of the asphalt from sewers Friday, and the sewage flowed into the river for a total of 8-9 hours before officials were able to resume waste treatment at the Pigs' Eye plant of the Metropolitan Sewer Board. Sewage treatment was resumed at 7 p.m. Friday night, a board spokesman said. The U.S. Gypsum plant manager, L. R. Wille, last week said the company would pay the sewer board for damages to the treatment plant. The renewed dumping of raw sewage prompted officials to warn persons downriver from St. Paul not to come in contact with the river water. Tests will be conducted downstream to determine where the accumulation of waste matter might create a public health problem, the board spokesman said.

Princess completes her visit to the Twin Cities NEW YORK (A P) - Pollster Louis Harris says a nationwide survey indicates that for the first time a majority of Americans believe violations of the law will be proven against President Nixon. However, the poll of 1,503 adults in April indicated a decline in the number of Americans who think Nixon should resign or be impeached, according to the figures released Thursday. The poll was taken before the President released his Watergate transcripts. Fifty one per cent of the respondents through! Nixon will * be found to have violated the law, 30 per cent believed he will not, and 19 per cent were unsure. Last October, the figures were 39-36-25, and they were 4934-17 two months ago. However, only 40 per cent felt Nixon should resign, while 49 per cent believed he should not and 11 per cent were not sure. In March the tally was 44-47-9. In April the question of whether Nixon should be' impeached was at a 42-42 per cent standoff, slightly different from March's results, when 43 per cent thought he should and 41 per cent disagreed. In the new poll. 56 per cent of those queried believed Nixon is using "executive privilege" as an excuse to shield incriminating evidence from Congress. Only 30 per cent felt that Nixon was using the issue to protect future presidents and 14 per cent were not sure. 300 Scouts expected at camporee The Spring Camporee for the Oxcart Trail District of the Boy Scouts will be held this weekend, May 10 to 12, at Elk's Point just east of Fergus Falls on Wall Lake.

(AP) — Princess Margaret of Great Britain and her husband, the Earl of Snowdpn, dined very well during their twcKlay visit to Minneapolis, spending much of their time at the table. However, Minnesotans learned one thing from the visit — the English don't always prefer tea. Planners of the royal visit had tea, sherry and dainty biscuits waiting at a small reception Thursday morning at Dayton's auditorium. The princess asked for coffee. Prior to the reception, Princess Margaret and I/ord Snoiv- don made an appearance at the IDS Crystal Court in downtown Minneapolis, and hundreds of. Minnesotans turned out for a glimpse of the couple. The princess read a two-minute speech thanking the well- wishers for their warm welcome. "It's a great pleasure to renew on a personal basis the warm relations that exist between the British and your country," she said. The princess and Lord Snowdon dined at the governor's mansion in St. Paul at noon. The menu included jellied consomme madritene followed by breast of pheasant, new potatoes, fresh asparagus, orange baskets with cranberry sauce. For dessert, there was fresh strawberries with melba sauce and lace cookies. After dinner, Gov. Anderson thanked the royal couple for coming to Minnesota. "We hope you will come again and stay longer," he said. The royal party then left for Courage Center in Golden Valley, a treatment center for the physically handicapped which Ix>rd Snowdon called "one of the finest I've seen." "I wish we could have these all over the world," lie added. The couple spent a few hours resting in their Marquette Inn suite, paid for by the Canadian city of Winnipeg, before their next stop, a tour of Walker Art Center. After dining on rib eye steak at Hie Walker Thursday evening, the royal party watched about five minutes of the rehearsal of .Shakespeare's, "l/ove's Uibor l.osl" at the adjacent Outline Theater. By that time, the princess anil her husband were 45 min- utes behind schedule. The car carrying the royal party zipped nut to Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport at about TO miles per hour — 13 in.p.h. ;ilx>ve the reduced speed limit put into effect to conserve fuel. The plane lifted off at 10:40 p.m. and the royal party arrived in Winnipeg, Man., about midnight. Most spectator reaction to the British couple was polite, even that of about ot) protestors who were critical »f the British role in strife-torn Northern Ireland. The protestors carried signs reading: "Northern Ireland is a British Vietnam." and "Free Political Prisoners." The demonstrators stopped chanting "If you hate the British Army, clap your hands" when the princess read her speech in the IDS center.
