Douglas Knight, presidenl of Duke University at Durham, N.C., said, "I don't think it means that everyone will be going to college 10 years from now, or that Ihe commission in- lended il that way. But it strikes me as a guarantee of an opportunity. 1 think it's something this country needs." Dr. Charles t. Turner, director of the United Board for college Development in Atlanta, a fund-raising arm of private Negro colleges, called the report encouraging and said, "il seems lo us the most salient feature, the most innovative, is in the area of studenl loans and supplementary grants to institutions for operational purposes This is where nothing significant has been done before and where Negro colleges are facing hardships and at the same time are unable to raise tuition." One dissenting note to the Carnegie proposal came from Russell I. Thackery, executive director of the National Association of Land Grant Colleges and Stale Universities. Thackery contends thai direct grants to students will tend to drive luition fees upward, while institutional grants would enable colleges and universities to improve facilities and to expand lo handle a greater inflow of students. U. S. STEEL - (Continued From Page 1) discharging only two to three million gallons per day. The domestic sewage treatment plans will be designed to produce the same quality effluent as the city now produces at the new East District treatment plant, which also empties into Cedar Bayou. The city council has set a tentative meeting at noon Thursday to hear a report from the Baytown board. Persons wanting to comment on the granting of the permit should file written statements with the state board and with USS al least five days prior to Feb. 3. Attorney Richard Kammerman, Texas Water Quality Board hearing examiner, told The Baytown Sun Thursday that two protests for the USS application have already been received by the board. He said the protests were from the Houston Sportsman Club and from Howard M. Humphrey of Baytown. Kammerman said that a resolution passed by the Houston Sportsman Club and mailed to the water quality board does not actually object to the application itself but urges the board to "take all action possible to see that waler pollution control laws are enforced." A letter signed by Robert G. Hansell, secretary of the club, said that "improper control of this waste water will literally remove Gal veston Bay from that of a marine producing area, forcing all fish, shrimp and other marine life lo leave," Kammerman reported. Kammerman said Humphrey stated in his protest he believes the discharge would pollute Cedar Bayou, but "if the discharge is treated where the contamination remains at or below the present impurity contained in Cedar Bayou," lhat he has no objection. U.S. Steel said in its application it plans to discharge 4,251,000 gallons a day from an outlet 1,123 feet west-northwest from the intersection of the former McKinney Road and FM 1405 into Cedar Bayou, thence into Gal veston Bay. The outlet would carry about 70 per cent cooling water, 26 per cent process water and four per cent sewage effluent. The second outlet would be at the point 4,000 feet south on FM 1405 from its intersection with the former McKinney Road, into Cedar Bayou, thence into Galveston Bay. It would discharge an average of 52,994,000 gallons a day containing 38 percent cooling water, 61.7 per cent process water and .3 per cent sewage effluent. The third and largest outlet would discharge 126,977,000 gallons a day. It would be located al a point 2,500 feet west- southwest of the intersection of FM 1405 and FM 2354, and would discharge directly into Galveslon Bay. The effluent would consist of 5.9 per cent cooling water, 5.7 per cent process waler, 88.3 per cent salt cooling water and .1 per cent domestic sewage.

SKIPKR miS OF CONFESSING -- (Continued Prom Pa(« 1) the floor and kicked me and worked me over real good. I lost consciousness after a few min- ules ... I asked to go to the bathroom ... all I could urinate was blood." At one point, as Bucher appeared near collapse, the Navy's counsel, Capt. William Newsome, asked if he wanted a recess. "No! No! I would rather get this over with now," Bucher replied. He was trembling. Bucher said he was taken to another building and shown a tortured man strapped to a wall. "They told me he was a South Korean spy. He was alive ... but had a compound fracture of his upper right arm with the bone sticking out. He was stripped to the waist. He had completely bitten through ..." Bucher's voice broke, and after a long pause he continued: " ... completely bitten through his lower lip. It was hanging down. His right eye had been put out. His head was hanging down. .There was a lot of ... (Bucher's voice failed for a minute) ... black matter running down his right cheek. He was under three spotlights. I do not remember leaving that building." He said'his captors told him, "That's what happens to spies, and you are spies, and you will get exactly the same." "1 passed out," Bucher said. Bucher said he revived in his interrogation room. "'We wilt now begin to shoot your crew and shoot them in your presence until you sign," he said Super C told him. '"And even then if you will not sign, 1 will make you sign.'" Bucher said the North Koreans summoned the youngest member of his crew, 21-year-old Fireman 2.C. Howard Bland. "I was not prepared for them lo shoot my crew," Bucher said. "\ was convinced they would do it. They were animals. I was not prepared Lo go through things like that." Pofice Probing Theft From Cash Regster Baylown police are investigating a theft from a cash register at Quick-Way Food Store, 1001 S. Main Thursday. Mrs. Gerturde Smith, 3527 Crosby-Cedar Bayou Road, told police she was in the refrigerator vault for about two minutes and when she came out a little boy lold her a man in a white pick-up truck opened the cash register and took "some money." According to the police report, Mrs. Smith checked the opened register and found all the $20 bills missing, $120 in all. Bucher was stammering. He paused, wiped his eyes, took a drink of water. "I was not prepared for this type of mental torture," he said. "I told them at this time, '1 will sign this confession,' 1 did sign it. 1 was taken back to my room and a big plateful of food with egg and other goodies was brought to me ... 1 did not touch it." Bucher began trembling. Newsome walked across the gold carpel and reached to put a liand on Bucher's arm. His hand fell short as one of Bucher's attorneys put a hand under the skipper's elbow as Bucher's legs appeared to wobble. Bucher's other attorney took a microphone from around the skipper's neck and led him from Ihe courtroom. A Navy psychiatrist-medical officer and Mrs. Bucher, still weeping and pale, followed Bucher out. Court was recessed for 90 minutes. When it resumed, Bucher said his confession finally softened Super C enough to make him answer his (Bucher's) continuous demands to know whether his wounded men were being treated. He quoted the colonel as saying "I can tell you that the wounded are being taken care of. "This as it turned out was a lie. They got no medical attention for at least 10 days." He said one of his men had been shot completely through with shrapnel and gangrene in his untreated wound caused a stench "so terrible that another crewman who was not wounded said he could nol stand being in the room without vomiting." Bucher said another one of his men was beaten until his abdomen was ruptured and "his gul was sticking way oul. They opened my door and slopped with a stretcher so 1 could see his condition. "My primary thought was, as long as 1 was kept alive, to gel a message back to Ihe United States that our ship had not intruded, regardless of what coerced confession would come out of this captivity." Pueblo crewmen gave a well known gesture of vulgar contempt when they posed for a photograph the North Koreans distributed to the West. "When they found thai out, they really turned on me and gave me the worst beating I received," Bucher said.
