V-V.N Bayk Covers Disability for a President BY PHILIP DODD Chicago Tribune Press Service Washington, Feb. 10 A gavel banged in the Nevada state house today and the 25th amendment to the United States Constitution became the law of the land. It was designed to settle the question of who is Pr e sident when a chief executive is disabled. The question of what state had the honor of completing the roster of the 38 states three-fourths of the 50 required for ratification of the new amendment was in doubt for several hours. Last night, North Dakota thought it was No. 37 when its House voted for ratification but the action was challenged on the ground its Senate had approved the amendment by voice vote, rather than by a roll calL Minnesota Acts Earlier Had the North Dakota action stood up, Minnesota would have been No. 38, because its legislature voted for ratification an hour before Nevada's legislature took final action. Not counting North Dakota, seven states ratified the amendment in 1967, including Iowa, which acted Jan. 26. Last year 13 states ratified, and 13 acted in 1965, beginning in July. They included Wisconsin, Michigan, and Indiana. Illinois has not acted on the amendment. Sen. Birch Bayh D., Ind.J, author of the congressional resolution which sent the 25th amendment on its way, held a press conference shortly after ratification and listed Nevada as the 38th state to ratify. Provisions of Amendment Bayh hailed today's action as a '"happy occasion" which closed a constitutional gap which has existed since the Constitution was ratified by the 13 original states nearly two centuries ago. Here are the main provisions of the amendment: l. Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of Vice President, the President shall ries: high, about 20.

A composite sketch of the suspect was being distributed by detectives. Lt. Robert Krueger, Skokie chief of detectives, said the man, between 17 and 21 years of age and wearing a beige topcoat, was seen in a nearby coffee shop shortly before and after the blast. Leaves Cafe after Blast Krueger said the waitress said the man ordered a cup of coffee and as soon as he heard the blast he got up and left as tho nothing had happened. The suspect was described as 5 feet 3 inches to 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighing about 110 pounds. He drove away in a black 1964 automobile. Krueger said the description resembles that of a man seen running from the Nelson Chevrolet agency, 1002 Diversey av., last Oct. 20 when a bomb did $3,000 damage there. Thursday's blast, which occurred at 11:08 p. m. as 10 workers were inside a garage of the Epsteen agency, was the fifth in a reign cf terror which has been imposed on Chicago area auto dealers since last fall.

Rolling south from railroad yards thruout the area are hundreds of freight cars loaded with some of the snow that made life so difficult in Chicago for the last two weeks. Railroads are sending the snow to warmer climes to melt. Simplest Procedure Railroad men say it is the simplest means of disposing of tons of snow cleared from tracks and loading docks at freight yards. Even if Chicago's recent warm spell had continued, melting snow at the yards could have caused flooding. But the weather bureau said yesterday that the recent thaw has ended. Temperatures will not get out of the lower 20s today and even colder weather is forecast for tonight and tomorrow. When a railroad sends snow south, it simply loads it into an empty gondola car, sends it to a southern freight yard, and lets the sun do its work. When the snow has turned to water, the car is drained and is ready for use again. Most cars used for snow haul ing are scheduled to be sent to southern yards anyway, officials said. The Burlington Route this week sent 200 carloads of snow to Herrin Junction in far southern Illinois. Snow to Mississippi The Illinois Central, which serve many southern states, sent snow to Macomb, Miss., and Memphis. The Rock Island sent 70 cars of snow to Forth Worth, where residents looked upon it as something new and different. Not all railroads are participating. "Where would we take snow to New York City?" asked a spokesman for the New York Central. Other lines that serve northern states are also unable to take part in snow hauling. The Santa Fe, which operates in the southwest, said it used weed burning equipment to melt snow here, rather than haul it to warmer regions. City officials obtained permission from the park district to dump snow in open areas in parks. Snow is also being dumped in the Chicago river and some vacant lots. The city tries to avoid dumping in Lake Michigan because the snow is dirty and could contribute to lake pollution. News Truck Driver Boss Is Target A black powder bomb exploded early today in the home of George Flannery, at 4914 Congress pkwy. Sgt. Joseph Snopek identified Flannery as an official of Local 706 of the Teamsters union in Chicago. Neighbors said that Flannery and his wife are visiting friends in Texas. Windows Shattered The bomb shattered most of the windows in the bungalow home and broke several in an adjoining home. Some structural damage also was evident, Sgt. Snopek said. The sergeant estimated damage at at least $1,000. Newspaper Truck Driver Snopek said that Flannery was formerly i driver for two Chicago newspapers before being elected recording secretary and business representative of the local. Detectives from the police labor detail opened an investigation of the bomb attack on the home. Police reported that the force of the blast also shattered windows at 4915 and 4910 Congress pkwy. Robert Flannery of Oak Park, son of the owner, was called to the scene by police. ARLINGTON RUNS SHORT OF SPACE; BURIALS CURBED tChicaoo Tribune Press Service . Washington, Feb. 10 The Pentagon today announced restrictions on burials in Arlington National cemetery and barred nearly all veterans who have not been career military persons. Beginning next week, eligibility will be restricted to retired or active career service people, medal of honor winners, high government officials, and their dependents. The restrictions on the n a t i o n's most famous cemetery were ordered because burials have reached a rate of more than 7,000 a year, and only 6,437 unused grave sites remain, officials said. Under the restrictions, remaining land will last for three years. By then, the army will have incorporated in the cemetery the adjacent grounds of the south post of Fort Myer, Va., creating 60,000 new grave sites. '7 1 City Rallies to Aid Girl Fire Victim BY JOHN O'BRIEN ( Picture on back page) More than 60 firemen, soldiers, and sailors rolled up their sleeves in County hospital yesterday to give blood for Robin Dean, 5, the victim of severe burns. Meanwhile, doctors in the hospital's Sumner L. Koch burn unit said her condition continues to remain critical, altho she is more aware of her surroundings now and is "holding her own." Stove Ignites Dress Robin, one of four children of Mrs. Charlotte Dean, 21, suffered her injuries Wednesday when a gas stove burner ignited her dress in her home at 843 Montrose av. She was taken to the hospital by fire department helicopter. The crew, Robert Hack, the pilot, and Donald Hoppe, the co-pilot, were among the first to donate blood yesterday at the hospital. They were joined , by other firemen and sailors from the Parle, a destroyer escort moored at the foot of Randolph street, and soldiers from the Nike site at Montrose harbor. The firemen responded to an appeal by Robert Quinn, fire commissioner. The sailors and soldiers read of Robin's plight for plasma and blood. Gets 50 Units of Blood Dr. Nelson H. Stone, assistant director of the Koch burn unit, said the blood is needed to save ! the girl's life. She has received more than 50 units of plasma since a team of eight doctors began treating her. . "The response by donors has been most gratifying," he said. But the doctor said it still was too early to predict if Robin would continue to improve. HOME INVADED; BOY, 8, IS HERO Crawls Out Window to Summon Aid BY JOHN PASTER An 8-year-old boy who saw two strangers in his home at 2754 W. 26th St., late last night, crawled from a window and ran to the home of a neighbor who telephoned police. Two brothers with police records were later seized at 25th place and Washtenaw avenue and identified by the youth, Allen Roy, as the intruders. WTiile in the home police said the men terrorized the 10-year-old sister of Allen, and took indecent liberties with her.

RUSSIA BACKS FOES OF MAO; SAYS KOSYGIN Calls Red China's Chief a Dictator BULLETIN HONG KONG, Feb. 11 Satur day (IPD Army factions opposed to Mao Tse-tung have seized the Communist party administration in Tibet and placed the autonomous western China mountain state under military control, Nationalist China's official Central news agency reported today. . BY EDWARD ROIIRBACH (Picture on back page) Chicago Tribune Press Servicel LONDON, Feb. 10 Soviet Premier A 1 e x e i Kosygin, speaking on national television tonight in Britain, called the Mao Tse-tung regime in Red China "dictatorial." He told, a television interviewer: "We are aware there are today in China, in the Communist party . . . and in the Tell Reds9 Use of Truce for Buildup SAIGON, Viet Nam, Feb. 10 (iP) North Viet Nam is funnel-ing supplies south during the lunar new year truce at a rate five times greater than normal levels, United States officials said today. There was a hint this buildup may lead to a resumption of the bombing of the north before the four-day cease-fire expires at 7 a. m. Sunday 5 p. m. Saturday, Chicago time. "The volume, scope and direction of the communist shipments create hazards for our military which we cannot afford to overlook," an American source said. Shooting Outbreaks Persist As to the prospect of keeping allied offensive operations halted until next Wednesday to match the seven-day cease-fire proposed by the Viet Cong, American quarters said it appeared unlikely. A Reuters dispatch said a South Vietnamese military spokesman confirmed that government troops will resume offensive operations at 5 p. m. today Chicago time, which marks the end of the truce. The Viet Cong have confirmed that they will observe a further three-day truce but have ordered their troops to fight if South Viet Nam launches operations during this period. While reports flowed in from reconnaissance pilots, checking on communist land and sea traffic north of the border,' shooting outbreaks persisted in the south. United States military spokesmen said they had recorded more than 220 incidents with 59 of them classified as significant, meaning one or both sides suffered casualties.

He repeated his observation that the situation in communist China "has been caused by the setbacks they the Chinese have suffered both inside the country and in foreign affairs." Holds Russia Blameless Russia's relations with Red China "are in a state of aggravation, and it is not thru any fault of ours," he asserted. "It is entirely the fault of the Chinese." Kosygin made the fullest official soviet statement yet on China at a press conference yesterday when he ruled out ANTI-RUSSIAN RALLY Tens of thousands of Chinese mass in Peking for an anti-Russian rally. Story on page 4. the possibility of armed conflict with the Chinese unless it becomes a matter of safeguarding Russian lives. But he did not attack Mao personally as he did tonight. The Russian leader, speaking on a British Broadcasting corporation taped interview program, also reaffirmed his belief that the solution to the war in Viet Nam would be American acceptance of the North Vietnamese proposal that the United States stop bombing the north and that talks start. Urges U. S. to Agree "I believe the United States should take advantage of these proposals to start talks," he said. "This, I feel, would be the most correct solution and one which could result in the ending of the Viet Nam conflict." Top-level formal discussions between Britain and the Soviet Union ended earlier in the day. Prime Minister Harold Wilson apparently was unable to change Kosygin's position significantly on the Viet Nam question. Wilson Effort Hinted Wilson and ranking members of the British foreign office met with the Russian leader for 2 hours in No. 10 Downing street, but only the barest statement was issued on what they discussed. However, there was informed" speculation that Wilson tried
