Ptg« Eight -Blyftevllls (Ark.) Courier New» - Monday. March iT. 1867 Police Heave Sigh As Collegians Go Home Youth had its fling over lhe| Easter weekend, mainly at sev-1 eral East and ..Gulf Coast resorts, to climax .their holiday vacations. But it wasn't all rioting and arrests a sthe nod set staged a West Coast Love-In" and a Manhattan "Be-In." Police heaved sighs of relief Sunday as more than 40,000 collegians headed back to classes, leaving some beaches strewn with beer cans and other! debris. At Fort Lauderdale, Fla., the bulk of 30,000 college boys and girls began a mass exodus to various campuses. There were 500 in the young army of revelers arrested for drunkenness, rowdyism, loitering and interfering with police activities from Thursday through Sunday. Early Sunday. IB youths were arrested by Fort Laudcrdale police after' they pelted officers with firecrackers. A van taking them to jail burst into flames but the driver quickly opened the door and averted serious injury. The visiting young people at Daytona Beach, Fla., found that local authorities eliminated seaside roistering with a ban on beer-drinking on the beach. At Biloxi, Miss., an Easter Sunday rain put a damper on the rollicking activities of some 10,000 college students. "H seems to have taken the cool but of them,' a Biloxi policeman said. Before the rain, however, 85 youths had been arrested on such charges as disorderly conduct, destroying property, drunken driving, interfering with highway traffic and indecent expoure. Police Chief Louis Rosetti said, "It's a mess. They've been breaking windshield of car, tearing up lawn chair, and tearing down piers to build bonfires." On Saturday, police cleared the beach of beer-swigging students as Rosetti announced: "We're not letting them camp on the beach." At Ocean Drive Beach, S.C., several hundred college and high school students began riot- ing Saturday midnight. By the time the fracas was broken up at 2 a.m., a policeman had been cut by a broken bottle and some 150 students were in jail. In Hollywood, Calif., early Sunday about 500 teen-agers became unruly as they left the International Teen Fair. They were tossing bottles and rocks at passing cars when police closed in. Fifteen were arrested but there were no injuries and little property damage. Another 500 youths attending the affair took no part in the melee. At Los Angeles, 4,500 bearded and miniskirted hippies gathered at Elysian Park Sunday for a "Love-In." "Christ is here with us, Snow Hampers Jerusalem Rites JERUSALEM. Jordan Sector (AP) - As Easter pilgrims shivered in snowy Jerusalem, Italians favoring birth control and divorce demonstrated in St. Peter's Square and Pope Paul VI urged the world Sunday to hope despite "menacing and gigantic problems." Jerusalem's Easter weather was the worst in memory, and it kept all but about 500 of the thousands of pilgrims in the Holy City away from prayers at the marble tomb of Christ. The first snow on the holiday in decades led some pilgrims to exchange "Merry Christmases" instead of "Happy Easier." The annual Easter procession moved through slushy streets, and sunrise services were moved indoors. Before nearly 250,000 persons jammed into St. Peter's Square in Rome, Pope Paul said that his own joy on Uje festive day of Christ's resurrection was dimmed by the world's troubles. But he urged men not to let Kieir minds be saddened "at the futility of efforts towards good, at the growing powers of darkness." The Pope said he believed it was time for the Roman Catholic Church to lake up social problems again and announced the publication Tuesday of an encyclical on social justice and an end to poverty and hunger. It will be the fifth encyclical of the Pope's 3%-year reign. Pope Paul began the day by celebrating Mass in a poor suburb of Rome. In white vestments and a mitre, he also celebrated Mass on the steps of St. Peter's before giving his Easter message to the throng in the square. The Pope touched on the Vietnam war and religious restriu- tions in Communist nations and elsewhere. As th« pontiff appeared to speak, about 30 persons near the front of the crowd unveiled banners reading, "fewer children, less famine," "yes to the pill," and "five million Italians want a family without hypocrisy and cruelty." Others tried to tear down ttie banners and police hurried the demonstrators but of the crowd. The Roman Catholic Church forbids divorce and artificial methods of birth control. In Vietnam, many American troops attended services in the field during a quiet Easter. About 1,500 ban the bomb marchers turned out in West Berlin, the first time the Easter disarmament demonstrations that take place elsewhere in West Germany were held in the city. Some marchers carried signs against the "U.S. war" in Vietnam. In tSie United States, hundreds of thousands attended sunrise services in generally good weather. New York City's traditional Easter parade along Fifth Avenue was marked by many fur coats and relatively few frilly hats. New York's temperatures were in the 50's but many among the 220,000 holiday strollers remembered the heavy snow and cold of last week. The parade included a few miniskirts, one on a bearded man, and a white poodle who wore a red jacket and white helmet and sat on a motorcycle. Mexico City police arrested more than 3,000 pranksters who observed the Easter custom of drenching strollers and motorists with water. Thousands of persons returned to the Mexican capital late Sunday night after Holy Week vacations. Hundreds of government agencies, banks, stores and Industries were closed at least three days during the week, and beach resorts i reported record crowds. Trawler Captain Jailed; No Money ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — U.S. authorities are awaiting payment of a $10,000 fine assessed against the captain of a Soviet fishing vessel seized in U.S. territorial waters. Leonid Kusdchenko, 29, of Vladivostok, was convicted Saturday of violating U.S. fishing waters and was jailed when he was nnable to pay (h« fine. The prosecuto*, U.S. Atty. Richard McVeigh, said he expected the fine to be paid today, and when it is he will ask the Coast Guard to return Kushchenko to his trawler. The vessel was seized last Wednesday off Alaska's Shuma- gin Islands within the nation's newly set 12-mile fisheries zone, i per, Nicolai Zernov, was fined The 178-foot ship and its cargo $5,000 and freed. The fine was of shrimp was towed by the Coast Guard cutter Storis to Kodiak but was released late Saturday. However, bad weather ''ept the SRTM 8-457 from returning to the Soviet fishing fleet until Sunday afternoon Humphrey Underlines Nuclear Treaty Need By HARRY KELLY GENEVA (AP) — Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey arrived at this center of world negotiations today with an argument he is expected to carry to the allied capitals of Europe: The urgent need for a treaty to curb the spread of nuclear weapons. The vice president said during a brief airport ceremony at the first stop on his two-week European tour that the negotiations (or a nonproliferation treaty are a "life-and-death issue." The vice president is making the first extended swing through Western Europe by a top administration official since the late President John F. Kennedy's 1963 trip. He will discuss a variety of problems with foreign leaders and U.S. officials in six countries. Humphrey's mission comes at a time of some friction in U.S.- European relations, partly due to U.S. efforts to seek agreement with the Soviet Union in such areas as nuclear nonproliferation. U.S. officials said one of the chief aims of the vice president's trip is to asure European leaders the United States is not subordinating its European interests to a desire for East-West agreements. The nuclear negotiations have been recessed for six weeks o give the United States more time to try to convince its allies —•particularly West Germany— to accept the proposed treaty. West Germany and other industrial nations fear the treaty will have an adverse effect on (heir development of nuclear power for industrial purposes. Humphrey, arriving in Switzerland after a seven-hour flight from Washington, told a small early morning gathering at the airport that the nuclear as well as the Kennedy round trade and tariff talks could show the way toward "peace and progress in the World." Humphrey was scheduled to discuss the nonproliferation and trade negotiations today with U.S. Ambassadors William C. Foster, William Roth and Michael Blumenthal. Humphrey in his travels to the Netherlands, West Germany, Italy, Britain, France and Belgium also has the mission of stressing the need for prompt action on the Kennedy round trade negotiations being conducted in Geneva. The U.S. trade act, authorizing the U.S. role in the negotiations, expires June 30, and U.S. officials note there have been increasing protectionist sounds coming from Congress. paid two weeks later. Coast Guard Cmdr. George W. Hardy Jr., captain of the Storis, said 14 other Soviet fish ing vessels were in the area where Kushchenko's trawler was turned loose. why," said Peter Berman, who iclped organize the encampment. "So is Buddha." Sounds at the gathering included mainly bongo drums, 3ells, guitars, and group singing. Some recited poetry and made speeches. The only problem was the giant traffic jam around the park. In New York's Central Park, 10,000 members of the beard- and-sandal crowd staged the city's first "Be-In," featuring love and "happenings." The girls wore painted faces (such as "love" printed across the forehead while a number ol the boys were bare-chested and barefoot under sunny skies. Some flew kites, others played marble, a number slept, 'an* an even greater number just watched. One group of about 1,000 demonstrated good fellowship about every 15 minutes or so by joining hands in a "love circle." when the Storis escorted the trawler 12 miles outside the U.

The judge found Kushchenko guilty after Kie Soviet captain pleaded no contest, as Zernov did earlier. Kushchenko's fine was the maximum. The iudge could have sentenced the Soviet skipper, Who is married and the father of two, to prison and ordered his trawler and its cargo confiscated.
