His method of getting rid of the bear didn't work, so Sam had to give up his string of lake trout and head for open waters. (AP Wirephoto) Longshoremen Finish Loading Russian-Bound Wheat WASHINGTON (AP) - The one million children who run away from home wen 1 year risk serious brushes with police because of the tangled web of state laws written to protect children, a new government report says. "Common-law and statutory proscriptions combine to create a veritable jungle that the typical runaway is ill-prepared to confront," the report said. In many jurisdictions, it said: * A runaway can be thrown into a detention facility for cigarette smoking "that was completely legitimate two blocks away." *· A minor could theoretically be convicted of contributing to the delinquency of another minor, if he encouraged someone else to leave home. *· Under different and sometimes conflicting statutory rape laws, "behavior that was freely and legally indulged in by the runaway in his or her state . . . may suddenly, in a new environment, be a crime subject to severe penalties." The report, entitled "The Legal Status of Runaway Children, was prepared over the past year at Herbert W. Beaser under contract to the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. He found that English common law still prevents runaways in many states from seeking medical care without parental consent. Only 28 of the 54 states and territories allow married minors to consent to a doctor's care generally, and four still require a parent's okay for treatment of venereal disease. By contrast, only 11 allow youngsters to be treated for pregnancy on their own. "Even in the case where a legitimate emergency exists," the report said, "the attending doctor often faces considerable financial and professional risks in treating an unknown juvenile." "The runaway in need of services may often be the hapless and unattended victim \JL UClYTa of these unresolved predictaments." it said. The looseness of language in law dealing with contributing to the delinquency of minors also creates "serious problems for GROOMWG ^BOARDING nuphttt* «-.cs,«5-75?i MCI BEAUMONT, Tex. (AP) - A Yugoslavian freighter sailed from Beaumont on Saturday afternoon after longshoremen finished loading 24,000 tons of American wheat bound for the Soviet Union. The loading was interrupted twice this week, first when longshoremen protested the sale of wheat to Russia and again when a lone picket sent the dock workers home Friday afternoon. A union official said the initial work stoppage was prompted by an International Longshoremen's.Association policy not to load new orders of American grain going to Russia because the sale might cause grain prices to rise in this country. But the official said the 14 longshoremen here agreed to resume loading the grain when it was learned that the wheat was part of an earlier Russian deal. A member of the Clerks and Checkers union halted the loading again Friday when he picketed to protest what he said was a stevedoring firm's failure to hire union checkers at the dock. Grain company officials worked through Friday night to compromise that situation, and the picket was absent from the dock Saturday morning. Longshoremen -- who already had loaded more than 20,000 tons of wheat into the holds of the Banija -- finished the job and the ship departed.
