Antimissile Step Includes Soviet Shield By BOB HORTON AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Pentagon's chief scientist has provided the first official acknowledgment that the $5 billion U.S. defense planned against any Red Chinese missiles also is a first step toward an anti-Soviet shield. Dr. John S. Foster, director of Defense Research and Engineering, told the Senate Armed Services Committee the proposed antiballistic missile (ABM) system, called Sentinel, eoiild be the foundation for an expanded defense against the Soviets. Foster made clear, however, that current U.S. plans and capabilities are only to try to handle the rather rudimentary missiles Red China is expected to have in the early 1970s. Former Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara told the same group the Sentinel system was technically capable of intercepting Soviet missiles but only in small numbers. As he had repeatedly since last fall's announcement on the ABM decision, McNamara emphasized the anti-Chinese character of the system. Testimony by both men came in early February but was pub- licly released only recently. The issue came up when Sen, Stuart Symington, D-Mo., asked Foster to explain why the administration seemed to be ignoring the Soviet missile threat while tackling a lesser Chinese threat. Foster replied: "I believe that the action the United States is now taking is all the action the United States can take, whether in an attempt to stop an all-out Soviet attack, or whether to provide damage denial against a Israeli Is Defying the U.N.

(AP) - Another general shakeup in the Arkansas General Assembly is expected in this year's election but it is doubtful that it will equal the changes of two years ago spawned by a reapportionment.

McClellan, D*Ark., in 1966, filed today for the seat held by Sen. J. William Fulbright. Johnson, 53, is the second Democrat to file against Fulbright. The other candidate is Bobby K.

Bryant Man to Run for Governor LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Ted Boswell of Bryant, a reform- minded lawyer, announced today he planned to run for the Democratic nomination for governor.

He is a native of Alleene (Little River County), but has lived in Little Rock since he was 13 years old. He has said he feels he has a chance to defeat Fulbright because he is better known now than he was in 1966. Rat Damage The common rat causes millions of dollars of economic damage in the United States and harbors or transmits directly more than 20 diseases, ;yphus fever, jaun- remia and trichinosis, according to the Ency- clopaedia Britannica. "But if I may say so, the Department of Defense specifically stated it was to protect us from China." Foster: ' 'That is correct, sir.'' Symington: "... Are you saying that actually it is the first step that we could take In protection against the Soviets?" Foster: "The statement that was made by Mr. McNamara, and concurred in by Gen. (Earle G.) Wheeler was that this deployment is consistent with the first phase of a deployment against the Soviet Union." Foster said he didn't recommend "thickening" the antimissile defense because the U.S. does not now possess the means of intercepting huge numbers of ICBMs nor an adequate ability to sort electronically among clouds of chaff and dummy warheads which might surround Soviet missiles. out ^fore watch dawn _ turned Sunday to stage a along the festively decorated route.

Bermuda Is Quiet After Weekend Riots HAMILTON, Bermuda (AP) — A rigidly enforced curfew and 560 police and troops kept Bermuda quiet Sunday after three days of violence. Informed sources said the nightly curfew may stay on until after the resort island's general election May 23. The 7 p.m.-to-dawn curfew also kept thousands of American tourists confined to their hotels, but most of them normally dine there anyway and spend the evening playing bingo or dancing in the hotel ballrooms. A detachment of 180 members of Britain's Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers arrived by plane Sunday night to help local forces quell any further outbreak of what the governor, Lord Mar- tonmere, called the "hoodlumism" that swept this normally tranquil island. Also helping keep order on the island where most of the whites and Negroes subsist on the tourist trade is the British frigate Leopard. After rioting Thursday and Friday nights, there were four explosions and half a dozen minor blasts Saturday night but Sunday was without incident. Barbed wire barricades cut the coral roads, manned by police, firemen and troops of the Bermuda Regiment, both Negro and white. The main violence occurred Thursday and Friday when 12 persons were Injured and $250,000 worth of damage was done. Officials here insist that the disturbances were neither racially nor politically motivated, although most of them were caused by marauding bands of Negro youths. Alan Buttert'ield, a candidate for the legislature of the predominantly Negro Popular Labor party- the PLP— charged that the troubles were caused "by the limey cops' irresponsible actions" in putting down the first riot. The PLP demands independence from Britain and wants to keep out Britons whom it claims take the better jobs here. LAST WEEK TO PLAY THINGQ No Purchase Necessary To Participate.
