V*9«Mr"'-·- Sea Rule Lost, Zumwalt Says Colombo 'Leftovers* JwaeaB was the iteixtaaaiversarY of tie shooting of Josapb A. Cctaoo Sr.. the mafia chieftaia graveiy wounded at an it- alian-Aiaerkan day rally in New York City. His alleged assailant. Jerome Joha- son. was slain 00 the spot. Thou$i the polke have devoted thousands of hours to the ease, it remains a mystery. They said recently they still did not know for sure whether Johnson was working for anybody or who had killed him. Then . . . No Decision Back ia 197$. a flap arose about flew uniforms for the tthHe House poitce that seemed u have beeo left over from a Sjg- mund Romberg operetta: Douhle-breast- ed white busies with gold braid buttons and stiff plastic hats with the White House crest. Turns out they're still in use. although only for state dinners, and without the hats. "They've always worn them." Jimmie Muscatello. the Washington tailor who designed them. said. "It was just a form of showing respect. Foreign countries treat our president that way. and we should do the same for them. These airplanes bring our world real close." AStKAPOUS, Ml AF Adou .Now The name of Mara- Dufunis Jr.. almost became par't of legal history this spring, but the U.S. Supreme Court declined to rule on whether the University of Washington law school had properly rejected him while admitting 38 membeVs of minority groups with lesser academic credentials. The court held that because Def had been admitted as a result of lower court rulings, he no longer had standing to sue. Dufunis has now graduated from the law school, and although no official class standings are kept, his lawyer. Josef Diamond of Seattle, estimated that he had finished in the top 10 per cent of his class. He is working in the law offices of Jennings P. Felix in Seattle and is studying for the bar examination. Shock Wave Startling observers at Newark International Airport and sending a shock wave through the State Department. Robert Vesco's private 707 jet landed at the airport seven weeks ago. having been spirited from Panama to help satisfy a lien against the self-exiled financier. The lavishly outiftted plane is running up costs of $700 to $800 a month at the airport while it is being offered for sale for $3 million. One interested shopper, according to an observer, was Bernard Cornfeld, who said he just didn't have the price" right now. *f a f rapeath sti*t as the Navy's t«p off eer. said Saturday ike U«Ue4 Slates las lost its supremacy at sea. He told an audience that included Vice President Gerald R. Ford aed most of the country's top naval officers that national survival demands that the U.S. regain its supremacy. Zumwalt said that during the last 10 years, "we have seen our once-great fleet cut almost in half and our remaining ships and personnel forced to endure long and continuous deployments as their numbers dwindled while requirements increased." He said those same 10 years had seen the Soviet Union, i$ (NMiritewKiiMaJi *e*4 torowkroi a*d wse *h* seas, develop a eapaJWMy to da so wfaiefe wearlv ia «v«ry wav ehaUeftges our owa."

"The consequences of conceding the world oceans to others are simply top serious to be allowed to continue," he said.

Ford was billed as the featured speaker, but limited his remarks to a brief commendation of the outgoing chief of naval operations. The Vice President said the hallmark of Zumwalt's term was his work in convincing the President and Congress that the U.S- fleet was facing ot- solesence. Vatican Mail Svstem ·/ Comes to Rescue (C) .Vi'ic Vwrfc 7'iiiif.v · . ROME - Vatican City, the center of the Roman Catholic · Church, has been ministering . t o an increasing number of · people in an unlikely capacity ;.- -- through its mail system, ; which seems to function more 1- efficiently than Italy's. '· The world's smallest sover- reign state occupies an area of \ 108.7 square acres and counts Va population of slightly more '. than 1,000. As an entity separ- :ate from the Italian territory · surrounding it, it has its own ^currency, bank, stores, print :'· shop and courthouse, as well "as a post office. ';.- The mail service, which \nses stamps bearing the leg- '·end "Post Vaticane" (Vatican .-Mails"), traditionally has -,'been patronized mainly by ;-philatelists and prelates, and \by tourists,who enjoy sending ·^Vatican postcards wth a "^stamp showing Noah's ark or Hi reproduction of a figure J*!jfrom the Sistine Chapel. £?·? In rece^* · Lonths; the vol- ume of mail reportedly has jumped 80 per cent, and according to an employe, the number of workers in the three post offices has been doubled. The increased traffic evidently involves the correspondence of many who no longer entrust it to Italy's ramshackle postal service. Last week it was reported that 300,000 registered letters were awaiting sorting and delivery in the capital alone, with 125,000 ordinary letters and over 33 tons of printed matter. * # * T R A V E L E R S l e a v i n g Rome by rail have become accustomed to seeing postal carts heaped with unsorted mail extending as much as a quarter of a mile down the platform -- and often out into the open. Reportedly thousands of bundles have been loaded into railway cars and sent on aimless trips simply for lack of space. SUMMERTIME ' AND YOUR HAIR CARE IS EASY WITH OUR'BEAUTIFUL BRUSH -PERM!
