I Ips. Starting salaries are now t |rhe association team headed \^ Wayne Nixon, a teacher at l^osley High School, said It wants negotiations to t^tlnue, with salaries laid «|jde and other matters In the luO pages of negotiable Items dfecussed. ;.Agreement has lieen reached on only about half of these items. s^lxon said his team would be a!^Mosley High at midnight Sunday to start round-the-clock rii^gotiatlons. TIte school board rljpresentatives said they would n6t be there. '[Beginning today, July 1, the njatter of negotiations according to law becomes the task of County School Superintendent Curtis Jackson. He said that lulder the law he must submit a salary schedule to the school iKJard by July 12 and that he will dbso. t Morris said Chenault turned tftward Mrs. King, "aimed at Hi&r and shot her two or three times." -Then, Morris said, the gunman leaped over two benches and Into the choir stall, where hfe continued firing. .Deacon James Kemp, who was In the choir, and other witnesses said the gunman finally ' 8(ppeared to run out of bullets, although Mulltns said neither gun was empty. Kemp said, "When we saw he V»as empty, somebody said let's get him.' • Derek King, young son of A.D. King, said "after I discovered he had run out of ammunition and was in the process of reloading I ran after him and caught him In the hall. :: "He was delirious. He kept repeating 'It's the war. man, it's the war.' He appeared to be fh some kind of seizure. We just let him lay there until the police arrived." Martin Luther King Jr. was ^lain April 4,1968, in Memphis at the age of 39. His death triggered massive rioting In his 149-page original brief, St. Clair charged that Jaworskl tried to bypass the grand jury process to obtain evidence against the President which would be turned over to the impeachment inquiry —that brown satchel briefcase containing the jury's 19-0 vote to name Nixon as an unindlcted co-consplrator. It was, St. Clair said, "a direct and damaging assault on the fairness of the House impeachment proceeding" and an attempt to "nullify the presumption of Innocence" with respect to the President. In his 169-page brief, Jawor­ skl replied that the jury's decision was proper. And In a brief on the subject filled last weed, tlie prosecutor said, "executive privilege cannot be used by a party to an Illegal enterprise to suppress the evidence of that conspiracy." In other Watergate-related developments: —Congress meets Monday on a technical resolution on the impeachment investigation of the House Judiciary Committee. It is designed to shorten the questioning of witnesses when the hearings are opened and public witnesses are called. — Prosecution testimony resumes Monday In the trial of John D. Ehrllchman. —The Washington Post Sunday quoted a Senate Watergate committee staff report as saying "bureaucratic Incompetence" was behind the Justice Department's failure to , follow up an Investigation of Associated Milk Producers, Inc., a dairy cooperative, and its political spending until the statute of limitations ran out. Thief Doesn't Okay Signs This Is the height of something or other: Two signs were reported stolen from the yard of Dora Hughes, 708 East 13th street. One contained the words "Keep Out" and the other "No Trespassing." Kissinger Squabble Blamed On Secrecy WASHINGTON (UPI) - Too That Is the way the situation great a reliance on secrecy in stood last Monday, when h i s diplomatic negotiations Kissinger held a news confer- could have been a big factor In ence in the morning, discussed Secretary of State Henry A. the dispute during lunch with a Kissinger's current arguments senior diplomat, and testified to with Sen. Henry M. Jackson, D- a late afternoon meeting of a FLEET RESERVE SHINDIG — Food and fellowship were the order of business Saturday as members and prospective members of Branch 346 of the Fleet Reserve Association gathered for a barbecue at their new building on V/iikinson Avenue. Sybil Kilgore, president of the woman's auxiliary, welcomed the group to the new facility. Bill Phillips, president of the Association, awaits his turn at the microphone. All retired members of the Navy, Marines and Coast Guard are eligible for membership in the association. 'Smile, Don't Cheer' Russians Are Told YALTA, USSR (UPI) -• Reporters notes from the American-Soviet summit talks; The Russians who have tur-. ned out to see visiting President Nixon were told to "smile but don't cheer." And that is the way it has been. At times, Moscow has seemed to be a totally deserted city as the Presidential motorcade zips through the empty streets with all traffic stopped. On the Black Sea coast an estimated 20,000 Ukrainians and vacationing Russians stood smiling along the highway as Nixon and Soviet leader Leonid I. Brezhnev passed by in a 50 car motorcade Saturday. That was the biggest crowd Nixon has seen in all his three, official trips to the Soviet Union. He first traveled to Moscow in 1959 as Vice President. Then there was his first summit In 1972 and now the current talks. Usually, Muscovites are kept a block away until the President's caravan passes by. The contrast is striking compared to the Cairo reception on Nlxons Middle E^t tour when the White House calculated that about 7 million Egyptians turned out. White House Press Secretary Ronald Ziegler was listed as "excellency" on the Middle East trip In one of the Arab news releases. Wash. The controversy, suspended for President Nixon's Russian trip, is all but certain to be resumed when the party returns to Washington this week. After careful reading of available documents and conversations with diplomatic and congressional sources, UPI has compiled at least a partial explanation of the issues involved in the dispute. The controversy liegan a week ago with Jaclcson's charge that the 1972 strategic arms accord included a secret agreement which would allow the Russians to build 70 more submarine missile launchers, than the 950 permitted In the , SALT accord, plus a pledge that the United States would convert fewer submarines to missile launchers than its allowed limit of 710. Kissinger angrily denied the accusation as "totally without merit or any foundation whatsoever." Jackson not only renewed his statements, but said he had documents to prove them. Deaths Hunger Strike Begins In Minsk • MOSCOW (UPI)-Nine Jews in the Byelorussian capital of Minsk —which President Nixon will visit Monday —have gone on a hunger strike to demand they be allowed to emigrate to Israel, Jewish sources said Sunday. ; They said another four Jews in the Black Sea port of Odessa also have declared a hunger strike. ; Dissident nuclear physicist Andrei D. Sakharov began a ijunger strike at midnight Friday to draw Nixon's attention to the plight of political prisoners in the U.S.S.R. He was joined Saturday by 13 Soviet citizens of Ckrman origin in Estonia who are demanding the right to emigrate to West Germany. There was no indication all of the hunger strikes were directly related to Nixon's visit. The Jews in Minsk began their strike three days ago but did not ask Nixon for support, the sources said. Four of the Minsk group are former high-ranking army officers who have been trying several years to emigrate. In another development, Jewish sources said tiie wives of several Jewish scientists who are under arrest for attempting to organize an international. seminar are being prevented from entering their apartments by plainclothes police. MR.RAYHOLLEY Mr. RayHolley, 45, of West Bay, Fla. died Sunday morning in a local hospital. He was a native of DeFuniak Springs, Fla. moving to West Bay 42 years ago. He was a truck driver and was of the Protestant faith. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Laneil Holley, West Bay, 3 Daughters, Mrs. ' he Senate Armed Services subcommittee of which Jackson is a member. Committee members (not Jackson) told waiting reporters Kissinger had acknowledged existence of a loophole in the agreement, but said it had been closed. Sources explained the complicated issue this way: An ambiguity in the 1972 agreement theoretically could have been used by the Russians to install modern nuclear missile launchers on obsolete deisel submarines beyond the total of 950 launchers permitted the USSR in the accord. It was Intended that the agreement would require Russia to trade in some of its land-based SS7 and SS8 missiles if it were to reach its limit of 950 submarine launchers. But when this was discussed with Russian negotiators, they disputed the U.S. interpretation and "insisted they should have the right to trade In ... obsolescent missiles for new missiles" on their CJ-class diesel subs. Sometime later, the Russians agreed to tiic U.S. interpretation and it was formally signed. The date i.s in dispute. Kissinger says it was in July, 1972, but some sources say it was as much as a year later. At any rate, the secretaries of defense and state, the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the SALT negotiators reportedly were not made aware of tlie matter until June of 1973, and Congress was never told at all. Jackson also claims tiiat as closed the old loophole, Bobbie Barnett, Mrs. Sue Stewart, both of Lynn Haven and Miss Sherrie Holley, West Bay, a son, Mr. Charles Holley, Southport, two grandchildren, a sister - Mrs. Racheal Gordon, Panama City, two brothers, Mr. Randall Holley, Mr. Doc Holley, both of West Bay. Funeral Services will be held today at 2:00 p.m. in the West Bay community church, with Rev. J.W. Singletary and the Rev. Rossie E. Bryant officiating. Burial will be in the West Bay Cemetery. Asked to Serve as Pallbearers are, John Day, Victor Sowell, Olen Pate, Joby Kirkland, Dalton Singletary, and Johnny Pate. Southerland Funeral Home 1123 Harrison Ave. 785-8532 K 1 s s i n g e r's interpretation opened a new loophole on ttie issue of dismantling land-l)ased missiles. The senator says the new loophole would permit modernization of the old missiles outside of the limitations. Kissinger called the point "abstruse" but sources .said that early this year the Soviets reacted negatively to clarifying It further, and it was not until April 18,1974, that the secretary signed a memorandum formalizing an understanding he had reached with Soviet Foreign Minister Anatoly Dobrynin to nail it down. The explanation for the U.S. promise on submarine construction remains ambiguous. Kissinger said the United States never intended to build its full quota of 710 missile.launchers for the Polaris submarines because the more sophisticated Trident class sub was being developed. As a "gesture," he said. President Nixon told Soviet leader Brezhnev after the signing ceremony that the United States would not fill its allowed quota. Some sources say the gesture was actually a pledge, which the Russians asked —and got — In writing. Presumably Kissinger can clarify this, if he wants to, when he returns. Record Crowds Arrive Motels and hotels along Panama City Beach's Miracle Strip began hanging out the no vacancy signs over the weekend as a record number of visitors began to pour into the area for July 4 fun. Bumper to bumper traffic was reported along the beach highways Sunday, though accidents were few and none was serious. Businessmen said the volume of trade was running about 20 to 25 per cent above last year. Gasoline stations did not appear .short on the fuel. Panama City Beach police and the highway patrol were taking extra precautions to keep careless drivers off the highways, and urged the cooperation of the motoring public to make the holidays safe ones.

Monday marks the beginning of Fiscal. 1975 —the 12-month period that the government uses for accounting purposes — and, not surprisingly, the administration is already Youths Held For Breaking Sheriff TuUis Easterling announced two young men were arrested on charges of breaking into Miller's Seafood place at Southport. Their names were given as William Carl Page, 18, and Lewis Alan Goble, 22, both of Southport.. They were charged with breaking and entering with intent to commit a felony. The sheriff said they were found behind the store after breaking counting on a big budget deficit. "Balance the budget" has been an attractive rallying cry in both Republican and Democratic administrations. But in recent years, politicians have talked a better race than they have run. In the 25 fiscal years since 1950, the federal budget has shown a surplus only isix times. In the other 19 years, the government has spent more for federal programs than it has collected through taxes and other revenues. The last year the budget was in the black was 1969, the transition year between the Johnson and Nixon administrations. The surplus was a modest $3.2 billion. MRS. REBECCA SAPP Mrs. Rebecca Sapp, 65, of Rt. 1, Cottondale, passed away Saturday night from a lengthy illness.
