July, 1.3, SftOWNWOaB BULieTlljl 1* Russian Accepts U,S, Grand Jurors (ndicf 15 Invite to Launch On Brufal Treatment Counf CAPfc KENNEDY. Fla. (At 5 ) — Ambassador Ahatoly F. bo- brynin of the Soviet Union has accepted an invitation to watch hefcl week's launch of Apollo 11. if he comes, he will be Ih6 first Russian to visit Cape Kennedy. Officials privately hope his attendance would mean a similar invitation from the Russians. "There will be no request for reciprocity," said Julian Schcer, assistant administrator of the space agency's public af* fairs office. "We certainly would not ask. But it enhances chances that an American will attend one of theirs." The Russians have been invited before, but the invitation always was turned down. Russian trawlers have been observed offshore on several launches. The acceptance comes on the heels of astronaut Frank Borman's enthusiastic reception in the Soviet Union and Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko's call for a new era of friendly rela- ' lions. I In an interview, NASA Admin- i istrator Thomas 0. Paine was | asked whether he thought there j would be more cooperation from ; the Russians once the United ' States had achieved its moon landing. ! 1 "I don't think we have to wait ! til after we've gone to the moon." t'alnfe said. "We've ; been discussing some coopera- i tive ventures with the Russians 1 and I think we've made some progress, ft is very slight progress, to be sure." i , The Russians, he said, have had setbacks ir their lunar pro jgram just as the United States 1 has. "T think once they're over-. ! come we'll see a very vigorous ' Soviet program on the moon' and I think this will perhaps be , the time they may be more 1 amenable to do something with us, after we have made our landing." i Dobrynin personally invited i Borman, commander of Ameri-, ca's first flight around the, moon, to visit the Soviet Union. The astronaut was cheered everywhere he went and told j friends he considers the reception in the Soviet UnJon the, warmest he received anywhere. All Soviet launches have been i made in secret, with announce| ments coming only when the i shots appeared certain success- i es. At the same time. Soviet j newspapers and television i I played down American achieve-, ments. U1*rti3 ROCK, Ark. <AP>A federal grand jury has charged 15 persons with brutal treatment of inmates in four Arkansas penal Institutions. jl returned 48 indictments Fri- i day. charging that the defend- 1 ants, "under color of law," wil- j fully imposed summary punishment on one or more inmates, ' depriving them of their constitutional fights. Jim Bruton, former superintendent of the tucker Prison; Farm unit of the state penitentiary. was named in 19 of the 39 indictments that charged for-; mer employes and trusty guards with brutality at Tucker from 1964 through 1966. Bruton was charged with punishing inmates or causing them ! to be punished by electrical shocks, whippings with a leather strap and the use of such ob- ; jects as pliers and hypodermic needles. The other indictments were against prison employes, other! former employes or trusty guards in the slate penitentiary > and at penal farms in Pulaski and Mississippi counties. Gary L. Haydis. former assistant sup lintendent of Cummins Prison Farm, and two Cummins employes, Lawrence : E. Hudson and G. W. Thomp-' son, were indicted as a result of, 4h incident last Oct. 14 in which! guards fifed bifdshol into about 100 inmates who refused to stop a sit-down strike, twenty-four j convicts were wounded. I Cummins, which with tucker, forms the state penitentiary,; was the site of the discovery: earlier in 1968 of three skeletons ift unmarked graves. Initiates find former Prison Supl. Thomas 0. Muftofl claimed that they were the skeletons of murdered convicts, but a pathologist later said the three probably died of natural causes. I Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller told a news conference after the announcement of the grand jury action: "I am really very pleased that at the end of 30 months of my administration' and after some persistent ef*> forts on our part to get some ac-' lion taken, federal authorities, have seen fit to issue some indictments." Judge J, Smith Henley of U.S. District Court called the grand' jury into session tuesday at the request of the Justice Depart-, ment, which investigated the 1 penitentiary after the October shooting. j Bruton resigned as tucker superintendent in 1966 shortly before a state police investigation '' of the farm uncovered inmate > allegations of brutAlitft I»W» and illegal tfafflS Itt BqUot and drugs. Bftjton lalef was charged instate court with e*ec&sive puft- ishment of inmates, but thfe Arkansas law on which the diarge was based was declared uflcoft* stilutiona! and thfe chftfge was dropped. tte grand jury took testimony from inmates whd testified about whippings with a leather strap and about the "tuckef telephone." a device used to send ftfi electrical charge into convicts. Use of the strap was stopped by the state Boafd of Correction in February 1968 end later was declared unconstitu* tional. Use of the "tucker telephone" was stopped as a result of the 1066 state police invest!- g *'on. Herman Belk, an assistant warden at the Pulaski County Penal Farm, and Gene Emmerling, a former assistant warden, were indicted in the death of Curtis Lee Ingram Jr., 18, a Negro of Little Rock, last Aug. 2 at the penal farm. Bclk wajs charged with causing Ingram "to be beaten with a piece of wood" and £rmr*rling with choking, kneeing and pouring hot water on Ingram, whose death touched off a brief flurry of racial trouble in Little Rock.

Agriculture O///C/Q/ Claims No Evidence DDT Is Unsafe By MAHK BROWN Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The! U.S. Department of Agriculture j says it has no evidence DDT is ! unsafe even though the department temporarily has banned use of the pestipjde in its own; operations. '" v " 1 ' Sen. Gaylord Nelson, D-Wls.,j charged earlier this week that! the department is -unwilling to! permanently end all use of the! chemical because "the Depart- i ment of Agriculture is locked in ! with the agricultural:' interests! who use DPT-" !

Irving said the effects on fish and wildlife do not enter into his a g e n e y '5 consideration o| whether or not to register pesticides for interstate shipment, sale and use, "There is nothing in our law which is explicit on that," Irving said. "Thai would be an extension of pur authority that our lawyers aren't willing to grant us yet." Nelson has urged Secretary of Agriculture Clifford M. jjardln to cance] registration of IW.
