Although these scenes seem to duplicate American supermarkets, closer inspection discloses goods are much more expensive; more shoddy In packing with far less selection than outside the U.S.S.R. of them and desire to do something to alleviate them." The Los Angeles Sentinel, a weekly, said: "It Is extremely rare tor whites to recognize and blame themselves for their failures. It Is equally rare for such a commission to agree unanimously not to place blame on some scapegoat— a 'Communist conspiracy,' or a 'Black militant conspiracy* or some other type of ominous-sounding conspiracy. "But where do we go from here? ... We believe the total white community, Inside and outside major cities, In small towns and villages, must rise up to the occasion and cure the tragic inequalities and inequities. It can be done and it must be done." Listed Killed in Vietnam By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON (AP) - Marine Pfc, Emmett C.

More than a year ago the Defense Department said the policy of drafting the oldest registrants first "was not desirable from any standpoint." Yet It continues. Chrysler In Apology to Higro Singer N6W YORK (AP) - Harry Belafonte says he received an apology from a Chrysler Corp. executive who objected to ft scene tn a forthcoming television special. Belafonte, a Negro, said Wednesday that Doyle Lott, advertising manager of Chrysler's Plymouth Division, objected to ft scene tit which singer Petul* Clark touched him on the arm. Miss Clark is white. Loll replied! "I was tired. 1 over-reacted to the staging, not to any feeling of discrimination." He said he phoned Beta* tonte later and "told htm 1 thought his performance tn the show was excellent and thanked him." Belafonte said Wednesday night that Lott telephoned him Monday to apologize and Implied someone else had complained about the incident. Belafonte said he told Lott, "H was you who did It. Your apology comes 100 years too late." Plymouth Issued a statement saying it was "very happy" with the show and that, If any Incident occurred, "U resulted solely from the reaction of a single Individual and in no way reflects the Plymouth Division's attitude or policy on such matters." cently told Congress the new regulation wiping out deferments for graduate students was bad for the Army, the colleges and the nation. .President Johnson has asked that national standards be applied for draft classifications and congress gave him authority to issue them. But the 4,089 local draft boards still set their own standards and they can vary from county to county. There is blame enough for everyone In the government for the failure to draw up and Implement a system as fair as can be devised, but for congress the failure has been most abject. It had the chance last year to carry out a comprehensive revision of the law and threw the opportunity away. A presidential commission had spent a year drafting recommendations and Johnson asked that most of them be enacted. But the House Armed Services Committee decreed that no great changes were needed and its view prevailed. In an exhibition of legislation- by-default, the House rubber- stamped the committee's bill at a session begun late In the day and chopped off peremptorily so members could depart on a long Memorial Day weekend— some on a junket to Paris. The House had sat until 2a.m. the night before working on a controversial school bill. The members were tjred and crotchety when the draft bill came up and cries of "Vote! Vote!" were heard within an hour, Sensing his colleagues' mood, Chairman L, Mendel Rivers, D-S.C., of the Armed Services Committee put through a debate-limiting motion. It left members with less than a minute to explain major amendments Intended to carry out some of the commission's recommendations. AH were shouted down. "We're asking young men to give yp two years of their lives," said one unhappy member, "and we won't even give two days of our time to consider this." The bill resulting from that session will be the law of the land until June 30, 1971, unless the House or Senate Armed services committees can be persuaded to reopen the matter. Such persuasion is now being attempted, particularly in the Senate, where Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Msss., recently offered a complete overhaul of th& law, trying again to put io many of the provisions recommended by last year's commission. Johnson could Institute many of the recommended changes by executive order but he has chosen not to do so. Supporters of the change hope the need for expanded draft calls to meet Glet- nam requirements will prompt the President to act, Coppermen Urged to End Strike WASHINGTON (AP) - President Johnson reportedly lias urged union leaders to put aside at least temporarily their demands for companywide bargaining, a major roadblock to settlement of the nation's copper strike. A copper Industry source reported Monday, following Johnson's initiation of round-the- Jclock Washington talks between *rel> reseri latives* -of 26 unf ons'and four major producers, that the 'President pressed negotiators to concentrate first on economic issues. Johnson, the source said, "suggested If bargaining was successful on economic issues the other Issues might fall into place." Johnson said the strike has cost copper workers $250 million in wages and the companies $123 million In after-tax profits. The four major producers Involved in the 235-day-old strike — Kennecott, Anaconda, Phelps Dodge and American Smelting and Refining—have declined even to discuss the company- wide bargaining issue. -•• The unions representing some 50,000 striking workers want to make each company deal simultaneously with all unions representing Us workers at all its facilities, with a common expiration date for all union contracts. Anaconda filed unfair labor practice charges meanwhile against the United Steelworkers and a large group of other Montana unions over the company- wide bargaining Issue. The complaint was filed Monday with the National Labor Relations Board In Seattle, Wash. The NLRB last week obtained a U.S. federal court restraining order in Denver against the unions after a similar complaint by Kennecott. Anaconda contends only wages, hours and working con* dltions are mandatory bargaining points under federal law, It says the unions refused to bargain on other points until Us companywide contract demands were met, A Steelworkers 1 spokesmen said, following the President's call for nighi-aril-day talks, that his union would enter such discussions without preconditions -ra stance believed influenced by the NLRB's action on the Kenijecott complaints. Wages along with pensions and other fringe benefits are key issues in the long strike. The unions are asking a three-year increase of ebout $1 an hour over-all. Wages now run from ?2.66 to $3.67 an hour for various jobs. Johnson told the union a«J company representatives the strike is weakening the U.S. dollar In foreign trade, threatening American prosperity and leading toward a pinch in vital supplies for Vietnam. Secretary of Defense Clark M. Clifford told the negotiators of war-related copper needs. Recovered From Plane By JOSE D. ABREU Associated Press Writer POINTE-A-PITRE, G u a d e- loupe (AP) - The charred bodies of 29 victims have boon recovered from the wreckage of the Air France Boeing 707 Jet that smashed Into a forested mountainside on the Guadeloupe Island of Basse-Torre Tuesday night.
