COURT- (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1) lees free speech. The court agreed with the defendants 1 contention that "vigorous criticism of the draft and of the Vietnam war is free speech protected by the 1st Amendment, even though its effect is to interfere with the war effort." The court ordered the retrials of Goodman and Coffin on legal technicalities. It found errors in the trial judge's submission of the charge to the jury. The court's decision was a majority opinion. A dissenting opinion filed by one of the judges on the three-man tribunal urged that all four defendants be freed. Spock and the others could not immediately be reached for comment. Spock's office in New York said the widely read pediatrician was boating off Cape Cod. Spock, Coffin, Goodman and Ferber were given two-year prison sentences.

PA&tANT FINALS SATURDAY 'Miss Whita Settlement' Well Suited for Swim Suit By MIKE COCHRAN Associated Press Writer FORT WORTH (AP) - Pam Cain disagrees with Miss America, says swim suit competition is not really traumatic and admits that "being physically fit comes easy for me." This was not totally undiscern- ible. Judges at the Miss Texas pageant agreed that, Pam, 3724-36^, was well suited for her swim suit, and so ruled. Pam, competing as Miss White Settlement, and Phyllis George entered as Miss Denton, were Thursday night's preliminary winners as the pageant moved past the halfway point. Phyllis, a pianist, placed first in the talent judging. The 63 contestants conclude preliminary competition tonight in a prelude to the selection Saturday of a successor to the 1 the toughest phase of the com* | petition. I "I disagree with her," Said j the blonde, blue-eyed English i major. "Being physically fit ! comes easy for me. . .1 was ! very calm. . . 1 did not feel uncomfortable." In sharp contrast, Miss George said of the swim suit category, "I'm scared.. . .1 heed a little more confidence. . . .I'm not used to the exposure. . . .Let's put it this way: I'm not as physically fit as Pam!" The brown-haired, brown-eyed Miss Denton, 20, an elementary education major at North Texas Stat' University, measures out at 36-24-36. She took the talent prelim with her piano rendition of two Glen Campbell hits, "Wichita Lineman" and "Gentle on My Mind." NEWS BRIEFS Smith Jumps Into Hassle AUSTIN (AP) - Cfov. Preston Smith has jumped into the auto insurance fate donnybrook but his aides held out lit- U6 hope that his intervention would foil back this year's proposed fate increase. "It's a fair and valid assume* llofi that he can't do anything about it this year/' one of his staff said. The governor issued a long statement Thursday saying he would sirmmon insurance company presidents to the Capitol to discuss the 11.4 per ceht statewide average increase in the cost of private passenger car insurance. He also said he "is exploring the possibility" of naming a "small select panel of lay citi- izens outside the insurance in| dustry" to study the automobile insurance problem. Smith encouraged interim leg* j islatiye committees in the House ! and Senate to join With his citi- Izens group—if he names it—to "come up with some solid fee- ommendatiofts and steps which the legislature can take at its hext regular session." Durwood Martfordj one of two t members of the State insurance I Board, said he welcomes any : study that might result in inv proved rating procedures or J "verify what we have done." j The board's third position has jbeen vacant since Dec. 31. ! Smith appointed former Sen. jDorsey Hardeman to fill it but Hardeman was never sworn in and the Senate failed to con- ifirm him. | An aide said there was a "re* jmote possibility" Smith will ; name a new member before ! Aug. 1, when the board expects | to issue new rates, probably the 'ones recommended by its staff.

LEUBSDORF Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate appears to be moving toward a compromise which would bar deployment of the Safeguard missile defense system but would step up testing of radar and computer components, probably at two Pacific test sites. Sen. George D. Aiken, the Vermont Republican who nudged the Senate closer to compromise Thursday by stating Safeguard could not be approved without modifications, predicted a program could be worked out acceptable to both a substantial majority of senators and the Nixon administration. "I don't think the White House Is so narrow-minded as to object to a workable modification of the bill," Aiken told a reporter. He said he has been in touch with the White House often in recent weeks. At the Pentagon, Deputy Secretary of Defense David R. Packard would not rule out the possibility of compromise. "The question of a compro- ' is a matter which will have to be dealt with by the President," Packard told reporters. "It's not in my hands. . -ffe's running it." At the White House, Press! Secretary Ronald L. Zlegler 'again predicting the administra^ 'ilon will win the fight, did not discuss the possibility of a conv promise, Negotiations behind the . pcenep are expected during the he,j?t few days, with any show ' <JQWq" votes at least two weeks " and testing, but bar deployment of missiles themselves. Thomas J. Mclntyre, D-N.H., introduced this amendment. Proponents of each compromise find the other proposal unacceptable. But Aiken and Senate Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana indicated during debate Thursday there is an area of compromise between the two amendments since both proposed continued antiballistic missile—ABM—research. "I would think as a suggestion en's perhaps it would be possible to achieve the same results if we had testing going on at such missile sites as Kwaje Lein and Eniwietok," Mansfield told the Senate. Asked later if use of the two Pacific test areas might be the modification he has been looking for, Aiken said "It's certainly possible. In announcing his insistence there be a compromise, Aiken became the 50th senator to declare himself opposed to the administration's ABM program as it stands. There are 48 who have said they will support it and two who remain undeclared. Sen. Winston L. Prouty, Aik- Vermont Republican colleague, told a reporter he expects to decide his position by next week. The other uncornmit ted senator, John J. Williams, R-Delaware, has said he will not state his position publicly. American Forces Applying Pressure on Key Viet Spots By GEORGE ESPER Associated Press Writer SAIGON (AP) - While the lull in ground fighting continues, American forces are keeping pressure on elements of four enemy divisions in the 3rd Corps area, from Saigon to the Canv bodian border. troops are trying "to bust up" enemy reinforcements.

"I was glad he consented," Miss Rey noted.
