New King Welcomed STOCKHOLM (UPI) -Thousands of Swedes turned out Sunday to welcome their new 27-year-old bachelor king, Carl XVI Gustaf, on his arrival in Stockholm. Carl Gustaf automatically became "king of the Swedes, the Goths and the Vandals" Saturday night when his grandfather King Gustaf VI Adolf died at the age of 90 in the city hospital in Helsingborg in southern Sweden. Looking somber but composed, the world's youngest monarch stepped off a special military flight at Bromma airport Sunday morning accompanied by his sister Princess Christina and high court officials. Premier Olof Palme and his cabinet members greeted him on the tarmac. Accompanied by the commander of the armed foi'ces. Gen. Stig Synnergren, the king then reviewed an honor guard.

The sources said this apparent impasse could lead both sides to abandon the customary joint communique which would be released shortly before Pompidou's departure Monday for Paris. French sources said the joint Franco-Chinese communique, as it now stands, is a "general, allusive" document emphasizing bilateral exchanges rather than international politics. Pompidou, looking tired after six days of his official visit — the first here by a West European chief —was given a colorful greeting at Shanghai airport. Court Reforms Asked WASHINGTON (UPI) —A federal advisory commission recommended several steps to reform local and state courts Sunday, including action to phase out juvenile courts, reduce the volume of appeals and improve the quality of judges. The proposals were made by a task force of the National Advisory Commission on Criminal Justice Standards and Goals in a report submitted for use by the Justice Department's Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEA A), which funnels federal anticrime funds to state and local goveinments. The report on courts was the first in a series expanding on a summary version made public last month by the 22-member Department in 1971 to develop a framework for cutting crime and providing a better system of criminal justice. Attorney General Elliot L. Richardson, who declined to fully endorse the controversial recommendations made in the earlier report, called the court reform proposals "practical, realistic, and...achievable." The task force, headed by law professor Daniel J. Meador of the University of Virginia, suggested substitution of "family" courts for juvenile court systems. "We believe that more effective handling of delinquency cases and other matters involving family difficulties is likely to result from the creation of a family court," it said. The panel suggested that the family (See COURT, Page 2A) Workers erased such slogans as "Stop the Fascist Coup" and "Marxism Never Here," which were the legacy of three years of bitter politicial divisions under Allende's regime. A Mexican airliner took off early Sunday, carrying the widow and two daughters of the deposed president to asylum in Mexico. Allende committed suicide during Tuesday's coup. In Castel Gandolfo, Pope Paul VI Sunday called the Chilean coup a tragedy and said he hoped the nation could avert a civil war. Sunday morning the government radio network broadcast dozens of communiques and announcements designed to normalize public services starting Monday. Most public workers were ordered back to their jobs as soon as the curfew is lifted Monday morning, although some were told to report on Sunday. Gen. Augusto Pinochet, head of the new ruling junta, warned snipers Saturday night he would not "hesitate in applying military law to those who assassinate my soldiers." Government soldiers Saturday executed a sniper in Valpariso, the country's second largest city. Military patrols eased somewhat .,§atur<|^^ of gunfire. A 6 p.m.-10 a.m. curfew remained in force. The now government announced it would install the seat of government in the modern "Gabriella Mi.stral" palace, where the Third United Nations Conference on Trade and Development was held in 1971. The traditional seat of government, La Moneda Palace, was destroyed during the six-hour battle Tuesday that toppled Allende. While a total news blackout continued on the talks, one member of the union's negotiating team did say it looked like some progress was being made. "The mood has changed in the bargaining room. It's not as cold as it was before," said Charles Brooks, president of UAW Local 444 in Wind.sor, Ont., as he emerged from th^ bargaining room late Saturday night. "They're working to put together an agreement. They're not just spinning their wheels," he said, adding that Chrysler "got the message the UAW is serious about voluntary overtime and working conditions."
