Karl Zinkhan, deputy chief of the Baltimore County police, said the number of requests was the highest his department has received since 1966 when the law requiring permits was passed.

Defies House Arrest Order By PHILIP DOPOULOS Associated Press writer ATHENS (AP) - Former Premier George Papandreou defied house arrest Wednesday and smuggled out an appeal for international political and economic isolation of Greece's military dictatorship. The statement from the 80- year-old leftist leader said "solidarity and support" from nations of the "free world" would lead to the immediate overthrow of the junta that seized power in a coup April 21,1967. Papandreou and ex-Premier Panayiotis Canellopoulos were placed under house arrest Monday in an attempt to prevent them from issuing statements in connection with the first^annig, versary of the coup.** * '** * w But Papandreou foiled the guards around his house and managed to smuggle out a long and defiant statement that was distributed by his followers. He accused the regime of abolishing freedom of the press, freedom of speech and freedom of assembly. He said the coup leaders have so far failed to justify their claim that a Communist revolution was to be launched during the elections that had been scheduled for May 28, 1967, elections which Papandreou's Center Union had been expected to win. "The Communist danger was manufactured and the coup undertaken only to prevent our electoral victory," Papandreou said. Papandreou was premier from February 1964 to July 1965. He was forced out by King Constantino in a struggle over control of the arm°d forces. The old man was held under house arrest from the coup until last October. Canellopoulos, leader of Greece's biggest conservative party, was the caretaker premier in charge of the election preparations at the time of the coup. Daley Insists Shooting Is Necessary CHICAGO (AP) - Mayor Richard J. Daley has clarified his order that police shoot arsonists and looters on sight, but he reiterated his position that such force as is necessary be used to prevent such crimes. Daley read a statement to the city council Wednesday which tempered the language of his order Monday in connection with arsonists and looters. An aide said the statement was designed to remove the impression that the mayor had called for indiscriminate shootings. "Certainly an officer should do everything in his power to make an arrest—to prevent a crime— by utilizing minimum force necessary," Daley told the council. "But I cannot believe that any citizen would hold that policemen should permit an arsonist to carry out his dangerous, murderous mission when minimum force necessary cannot prevent or deter him." Emerging from the council meeting, Daley was asked if he was misunderstood la his "shoot on sight" orders Monday. "Yes I was," Daley replied.

The paper added: "In the eyes of those men of good will who want an early end to the war in Vietnam, Phnom Penh- capital of a neutral country—or Warsaw—where the United States has its embassy—are suitable places for the contacts." Diplomats in Washington from some of the countries allied with the United States in Vietnam said the U.S. govern- had objected to Phnom and Warsaw because it had promised the preliminary talks would be held, if possible, in a neutral Asian country to which South Vietnam and its Asian allies could send observer delegations. This was expected to provoke a new howl from Hanoi, which has given every indication that it assumes the preliminary talks will be confined to the United States and Noi-thi Vietnam, with their sole purpose the ending of all American attacks on North Vietnamese territory. However, Asian diplomats in Washington said the United States has turned down South Vietnam's proposal for a summit conference of the seven allied nations with troops in Vietnam. The informants said the United States let it be known it is not enthusiastic for a summit before the initial contacts are made with Hanoi. Rockefeller Is Being Pressured the wake of heated controversy which followed his remarks on Monday? "No," Daley replied. "I said very distinctly that all I want is for people to obey the laws." Daley's statement to the council Wednesday was in connection with a resolution he introduced designating May 1 as Law Day, a resolution which the council adopted unanimously, Daley evidently was replying to criticism during the April 5-7 disturbances that police did little to stop looters and arsonists. The mayor touched off a wave of controversy— in the city and the nation— Monday when he re. buked Police Supt. James B. Coniisk for not issuing "shoot on sight" orders during the disturbances. He told a press conference By JACK BELL AP Political Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller is under increasing pressure from some key associates to take a new step toward active candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination. Rockefeller, in Washington today to launch what he has said will be a series of speeches on major issues, will talk on big- city problems before the American Society of Newspaper Editors. Some of the New Yorker's backers who participated In the abortive 1964 attempt to stop Barry Goldwater with then-Gov. William Scranton of Pennsylvania are convinced Rockefeller must abandon quickly his position of waiting for a draft. Sen. Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., among others, thinks Rockefeller should say within two weeks he is willing to seek the nomination that former Vice President Richard M, Nixon is campaigning for vigorously. Rockefeller said on April 12 there "could be" circumstances under which he might become an active candidate. Some of his strategists feel action of this nature would help eliminate some of the political hangups they have encountered in trying to get a flow of convention delegates headed his way. They believe Gov, James A. Rhodes and the 58-voto Ohio delegation might be favorable to Rockefeller. But they don't expect the canny Rhodes to make any commitments to a contender who isn't even in the ring. Similarly, Gov. George Rom- Corrective Prison Plan Js Blamed RALEIGH, N. C. (AP) North Carolina's top prison official says his efforts to build a progressive correction system were partially responsible for Wednesday's Central Prison riot in which six prisoners were killed. But State Correction Commissioner Lee Bounds plans no change from his relatively new policy of collecting the worst offenders at the maximum security unit in Raleigh. The advantage of the regrouping, Bounds said, outweighs the risks. He said that his system insures that the "bulls"—extor- tonists, racketeers, assaulters, sexual offenders and other prisoners who have been terrorizing their fellow inmates— are removed" from medium security facilities throughout the state, allowing more rehabilitation in those units. Five inmates were killed and 78 wounded early Wednesday when guards fired shotguns into a crowd of more than 400 rioting prisoners. One of eight critically injured prisoners died late Wednesday night in a hospital. Five officers were hurt, none seriously, in the confrontation that Bounds said lasted 10 minutes. Bounds said the "root cause" of the trouble was administrative take-over of the prison handicraft system. For years the system was operated by inmates as a revenue source by making wallets and other leath- LITTLE ROCK CAP) - Atty. Gen. Joe Purcell challenged Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller Wednesday "to assert political leadership that is so badly needed" and include legislation in his May special session of the legislature to clear up state liquor laws, Purcell said it was "high time that the nit-picking over our liquor laws, which to some extent are ambiguous, overlapping and nondefinitive, be stopped." "Gov. Rockefeller refers to the hypocirsy of the situation and just as repeatedly refuses to present the matter to the General Assembly in conformity with his announced wished prior to the last special session," Purcell said. The General Assembly is "the only forum to properly deal with the confusion and disorganization which has risen in this field- of the law," Purcell said. The attorney general said Arkansans "are entitled to know Without delay whether or not he has the courage and the political leadership to act in this area which is of such great concern to the people." Purcell said he hoped to have an opinion written within 30 days on the legality of regulations established Monday by the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board which would allow clubs to dispense mixed drinks. Mrs. Norma Starr of Little Rock, a justice of the peace, also asked Purcell whether clubs, restaurants or hotels could sell, dispense or serve mixed drinks. Purcell said this envolved three seperate questions and that each would be answered. He questioned, however, whether the ABC really neded answers to some questions it had .submitted to his office last month such as whether alcoholic beverages could be legally dispensed in dry counties. Purcell told the board there wis no legal authority in Arkansas to sell mixed drinks anywhere. tion that American envoys would take in direct contacts with North Vietnamese representatives and reaffirmed that "the U.S. government would continue to consult fully with the Republic of Korea and other allies concerning negotiating developments and positions to be taken on the allied side at each stage." On Korea, the two said: -"Further aggressive actions by the North Korean Communists would constitute a most grave threat to peace," Word of a fresh incident involving a North Korean terrorist attack against the South Korean soldiers arrived while the leaders were meeting here. —Johnson "reaffirmed the readiness and determination of the United States to render prompt and effective assistance to repel armed attacks against the Republic of Korea." er goods for outside markets. Prison officials maintained the- system, bred -extortion, and racketeering and was a means for some prisoners to gain power and control within the inmate population. Bounds said the handicraft production will continue, but only under control and supervision of prison officials. For the past 18 months Bounds' department has been classifying the prison system's 10,000 inmates. The worst offenders and those with the least potential for rehabilitation are collected at Central Prison in Raleigh. Before the riot began some 500 prisoners staged a sit-down strike in the prison yard. Tempers became short with the chilly nigiit and a small building was set afire.
