Cadets Are (ought With Marijuana ANNAPOLIS, KM, (AP) The superintendent of the U.S. Naval Academy says 13 midshipmen face dismissal on charges of smoking marijuana in their rooms in Bancroft Hall, the academy dormitory, Rear Adm. Draper L. Kauffman, the superintendent, said Wednesday the dismissal recommendation would be made to Secretary of the Navy Paul R. Ignatius. Acceptance of the recommendation by the secretary is generally considered a formality. It would be the largest group dismissed from the academy in Its IBS-year history. The incident marked the second time in 10 months that midshipmen had been caught smoking marijuana in the dormitory that houses the 4,000-man brigade of midshipmen. Four were dismissed in a similar incident last June. Kauffman said the current problem came to light after an unidentified midshipman reported that he "had seen several midshipmen who appeared to be smoking marijuana in a midshipman's room in Bancroft Hall." A spokesman at the academy said the midshipman made his observation over the weekend and felt bound by the strict honor code to report to his superiors. The academy said the Naval Investigative Service in Washington investigated the incident and would continue its probe to determine the source of the drug and stop its use. Though the names of those involved were not released, the academy said they included 11 juniors, one sophomore and one freshman. Smoking marijuana is a violation of academy regulations, U.S. Navy regulations and of the Uniform Code of Military Justice. A spokesman said the midshipmen Involved would probably not face disciplinary action such as a court-martial but would simply be dismissed and become eligible for the draft.

Secretary-General U Thant's talks with President Johnson on Vietnam will produce any new U.S. peace move. As Thant and Johnson prepared to talk, several Senate critics of U.S. war policy expressed doubts about the South Vietnamese government's stability following a new rupture In its program to rebuild cities shattered in repulsing Viet Cong attacks, Thant's visit to the White House today is considered, sources said, simply an extension of his recent trips to Europe and Asia in which he sounded out North Vietnamese officials about peace talks. £ Diplomatic sources at the United Nations said Tuesday Thant would tell the President that the North Vietnamese will discuss anything the Americans want if U.S. bombing of the North is halted. But observers here noted Thant was represented, following his recent meeting in Paris with a North Vietnamese spokesman, as saying the United States and North Vietnam re. main too far apart on peace talk terms to hold out hope for negotiations in the near future, The U,N, sources said North Vietnam still is insisting on an unconditional halt to U,S, bomb, ing of the North, Johnson has made elear he'll order a bombing halt only if North Vietnam agrees not to take military advantage of such a pause, LEGAL NOTICE Lloyd Minx, No driver's license, Plea guilty, fined $71.15.

Second-place Chicago nipped Oakland 1-0 on Bobby Hull's 41st goal to go four points up on New York and remain six behind the Canadiens. But fourth-place Boston and fifth-place Toronto each bowed to an expansion club. Minnesota trimmed Boston 53, ex-Bruin Wayne Connelly scoring two goals, and St. Louis pounded slumping Toronto 5-1.

The panel's news conference came several hours after Thant wound up a brief Washington visit in which he reported to Johnson on his recent peace- probe journey to India, the Soviet Union, Britain and France. Thant had talked with leaders of the four countries and with North Vietnamese diplomats in New Delhi and Paris, His findings reportedly were not encouraging, Home-Calling Apparently Brainstorm By FRANK CORMIER Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Sometimes it seems the White House must have a special staff in charge of dreaming up names for federal programs: Head art, Upward Bound, Operation Eunstr'eam ,'and ..'all.;the others. But no such staff exists. The whole name-calling procedure is a very informal ona, though it sometimes resembles an organized exercise in "group think" or "brainstormlng." Take the christening of the National Alliance of Businessmen, the group President Johnson created to give private enterprise a role in training and finding jobs for the hard-core unemployed. When White House aides were preparing Johnson's recent message to Congress on jobs, they kicked around all kinds of ideas for naming the business organization. Their final choice was determined by the fact that National Alliance of Businessmen can be alphabetized as NAB-an apt description, they thought, for a program to actively seek out job-training candidates and propel them Into the labor force. "We try to find something uplifting that gives the essence of the program," explains Larry Levlnson, a White House assistant who has participated In many a bureaucratic Occasionally a program name i«h, mn ™« ^ * Is suggested by the department Johnson gave raj-carpet principally responsible for its treatment to his U.N, visitor, who said their one-hour talk had been useful, Afterwards, Thant lunched with Secretary Dean Rusk and other high U.S. officials at the State Department before flying back to New York, A White House statement said Johnson had reaffirmed to Thant "our continuing desire to achieve a peaceful settlement and the continued validity of the San Antonio formula."

Grid Owners to Recognize Union By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (APKthe National Football League and the NFL Players' Association have taken the first formal step to* ward recognition of the independent union as a bargaining agent for collective bargaining in mid-March. After a meeting between labor counsels for the two groups, two NFL owners and three player representatives, it was announced Wednesday that the association would be recognized pending a check of its membership by the independent American Arbitration Association. Both Ted Kneel, legal consultant to the owners, and Dan Shulm.in, labor counsel for the players, were optimistic about the possibility of an agreement once the bargaining starts. Kheel emphasized that the owners did not doubt the authenticity of the membership but merely wanted a formal check. Shulman said his group could have tried different means of gaining recognition but chose a formal check because "we have the cards from the players. We know we have a majority." Shulman said the assoccclaln has 685 members who pay $100 a year In Wiembershlp fees, fitfte after time he 1 f^iterated that the association did not e*» peel to negotiate Individual salaries. this is not the classSe union situation/' said ShufWafi, a $4* year-old Chicago labor lawyer. "We are talking about things common to everyone—pension plan, shares of postseason games and, of course, minimum salary." Although the association said in Miami in January it wanted $15,000 minimum salary, $500 a game for exhibitions and a $5 million annual contribution to the pension fund, Shulman would not be specific at this time. "We do not want to try our case in the newspapers," said Shulman. "Our first step Is to get recognition, Then we will get down to hard bargaining. 1 do not want to be specific at this time." When a reporter asked Shul* man what would happen If no agreement was reached, he said, "We intend to utilize every means available under the law. However, we anticipate we will be able to reach an agreement." "I have no doubt that reasonable people can work out their problems," said Kheel. John Gordy of the Detroit Lions, association president was not present but sent a statement backing up Shulman's announcement. Dave Robinson of Green Bay, Gary Wood of New Orleans and Carl Kammerer of Washington were the only players present at the news conference. The owners were represented by Art Msdell of Cleveland, league president, and Wellington Mara, president of the New Vork Giants. Shulman said a vast majority of the players polled favored making the association the bargaining agent, However, there were a few exceptions. "One playef said he wanted no part of any union," said Shutman, "Another asked what we meant by collective bargain- Ing. 1 Shulman called the agreement "an historic step" as the first such agreement between owners and players in organized sports. The football players are the first to seek status as an independent union, The A me r i c a n Football League put teeth into its rule against use of video tape or electronic equipment during a game by scouts or coaching staffs. Future violations can bring a five-year suspension for the guilty person and perhaps a $50,000 fine for the team. There was a rhubarb about use of videotape last season when the New York Jets charged the Houston Oilers with such a violation during a late season game with San Diego. Houston denied the charge and Mild Woodard, AFL president, cleared the club after an investigation. The NFL has a similar rule without any specific penalties Fe&njsnr 1% Arnold Shoots "Monster' With a 9 Under TUCSON, AHz. (API — the 13th hole of the Tucson National Golf Club has added whirrs this year, but as Arnold fcai- mer's nlne-oVer-par 13 6ft the hole Wednesday can attest, it's still a monster. Officials of the $100,000 Tucson Open, in an attempt to keep errant tee shots from the water on either side of the narrow hump-backed fairway, have let the grass rough grow to several inches. But it doesn't helprnucrh; Defending champion Arnold Palmer put four tee shots Into the right lake, hit his approach shot into a trap guarding the green, pitched and then needed two putts to hole out. "I can't remember when I had a worse score on a single hole," said Palmer. except "conduct detrimental to the best interestsof football." Many pro teams use the tape in practice sessions but it cannot be used in regular season or exhibition games. Only a polar- old camera or a telephone can be used during games.
