Box 168 Tejorkana, Ark. 772-1882 Gfs Con Fly Flags From Nome Sfofe By FRED S. HOFFMAN AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Pentagon has assured outraged Southern congressmen that servicemen will be allowed to fly thejr home-state flags in South Vietnam-^ even if those flags are emblazoned with the insignia of the Civil War Confed* eracy. The flap started about two weeks ago when Rep. W, S. Stuckey, D.Ga., told the House he was "upset, angry and indignant" because one of his constituents in Vietnam was ordered to remove the Georgia flag from above his bunk, "The reason given was that since some people view the CoAfederate flag as a symbol of racism," Stuckey said, "all state flags which contain bars and stars must be removed." He read part of a soldier's letter to the soldier's mother complaining the order came out ''because of the racial tension" following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. While the Southern state flags had to come down, Stuckey said, flags from such states as New York and OJiio "were ai- Top photo shows over two feet of water across the road between Bingen and Highway 24 last week. Bottom photo shows the bridge washed from pilings across Ozan creek on SPG west patrol road north of Washington. There were many scenes like this all over the county, lowed to remain displayed." The Georgia congressman said he had written to the Pentagon demanding "that this ridiculous and dangerous order be investigated," Asked about this, the Pentagon said a preliminary inquiry showed that on April 10, during the period of civil disturbance after King's death, a local decision was made within the 1st Marine Aircraft Wing in Vietnam "to prohibit the outward display of the Confederate flag." The aim, the Defense Department said, was to "reduce the likelihood of and racial tensions within the wing." The Pentagon Identified neither the originator of the order nor the Marine who had to pull down the flag. "When the appropriate officers were Informed that the flag was the official state flag of Georgia, the order was clarified and the state flag was again displayed," the Pentagon said. . >. with HEARING AID BELTONE HEARING SERVICE 516 Wood Street Texarkana, Arkansas (Across from Post Office) See: Mr, Tom Purvis, Friday, May 17, 1:00 to 3:00 P.M.

By ROBERT LW Associated Press Writer TOKYO (AP) - A severe earthquake that jolted 600 miles of Japan's eastern seaboard to* day killed at least 14 persons and caused tidal waves and wide* spread damage, Police said in addition to the 14 known dead, three persons were missing and at least 50 in* Jured, Seven Americans at Mis* awa Air Force Base, in northern Honshu, suffered miftof injuries, but no planes were damaged. It wasn't as bad as it might have been because the quake's epicenter was 93 miles out to sea, off Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost island, The Central Meteorological Agency said magnitude of the quake at its epicenter was 7,8, above the seven-point scale used in Japan. It was the strongest quake since the Sept, 1, 1923, tremor that left much of Tokyo and Yokohama in ruins. The tidal waves averaged four to five feet, but damage was reduced because they came at low tide, However, numerous homes and buildings were destroyed, either by the quake or fires that followed It, Hundreds of homes were flooded to floor level or above, Roads were impassable in places, bridges cut, dikes ruptured and railway tracks severed, Most of the damage occurred m southern HdttaKfc ftiw north, ern to ceftlffil Hofisria, iff Aomori, a 6ity of 210,600 in northern Honshu, apparently was hardest hit, Eleven dead 'were reported there and rnqr, than 80 homes were destroyed!; Flag Etiquette When a flag is to be masted, it should be hoisted to the peak for an . stant and theft lowered to tm half-staff position.
