sanitary facili- connections with power re- May 18,1968 Resurrection City Has to Play Own Way By STAN BENJAMIN Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The 15 acres of federal grass are free but from there on "Resurrection City" has to pay its own way. Government officials said the planned bivouac of some 3,000 Poor People's Campaigners in the heart of the nation's capital is expected to cost the public little or nothing. In granting permission last Friday for the campaign to set up housekeeping on national park land near the Lincoln Memorial, the Interior Department made it clear who was to pay the bills. The permit specifies that the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, sponsor of the tent city, is responsible for: - Building and maintaining the campsite. — Proving ties. — Making available water, sewer, and telephone line.';. — Providing for garbage • moval. — Restoring the park to its original condition when they leave— except for wear and tear on the grass. All this, the permit says, is at the expense of SCLC, which must also post $5,000 as security. Water and sewer pipes that once served now-demolished buildings on the location are still in place and Resurrection City has tapped into them. The District of Columbia will charge the same rates for water and sewer service as it does toother ciistnmprs. SCLC must even pay for the installation of water meters, and an organizer said the deposit for electric service was $10,000. "There's no National Park Service money involved," Nash Castro, director of the Park Service's National Capital Region, told an interviewer. "All we've done is assign them land." The camp-in will cost the District of some money— mainly preparedness— but it much, a spokesman said. "We are not directly providing any services without charge," he said, "except for essential:, health .services with the cooperation of doctors in the District. We consider that a community necessity." The District has already ruled that camp-dwellers would not be considered D.C. residents for welfare-payment purposes. The Civil Service Commission lias ruled government employees may participate in the Poor People's Campaign, but only on their own time and only if it doesn't interfere with their work or embarrass their agency. The campaign is getting quite a bit of help, however, from nongovernment groups. The area's Health and Welfare Council, a private coordinating group, reported food dealers have set up an emergency committee aimed at feeding up to 3,000 campaigners for one month. Dentists, doctors, teachers and other private citizens have offered their help. And churches have been giving temporary shelter to the vanguard of the campaign, now preparing the tent city for the arrival of the main group of demonstrators.

Pakistan Is Trying to Control Births Associated Press LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) - A visitor to a government minister's home or office in Pakistan is likely to be served tea in a cup bearing a small circular seal showing a mother and two children. That same seal is showing up all over the country—on billboards, on the back of municipal buses, on car bumpers and village walls. It is the symbol of Pakistan's family planning program, a desperate drive to reduce this country's birth rate from 50 to 40 per thousand. "We are about one-half way to our goal," says Dr. Willard Boynton, chief health officer for the U.S. Agency for International Deelopment in Pakistan. Although Ms responsibility encompasses many health problems, Boynton has found himself deeply involved in the family planning program. "The country has a 50 per thousand birth rate and a 20 per thousand death rate, for a net growth of 3 per cent," he says. "There are 125 million people in East and West Pakistan today and a 3 per cent growth rate would double the population in the next 23 years." "By 1970 the Pakistan government wants to reduce the birth rate to 40. But at the same time, medical advances may drop the death rate to 15. This would give a Z\2 per cent growth rate." Boynton said it is estimated Pakistan has 20 million fertile couples: "If you got five million practicing family planning, and it is assumed there is 70 per cent effectiveness, you would meet the goal." Today it is estimated that Pakistan lias 2.2 million couples practicing family planning. Boynton says 700,000 women are using the intra-uterine contraceptive device known as the loop. About 30,000 persons per month are undergoing vasecto mies or tubectomies and the remainder are using conventional contraceptives. A major step was the training of family planning visitors, women who have no higher education but who are given a special one-year course in the insertion of loops. HOPE (MX) STM, Czechs Want U.S. Support Against Russia By WILLIAM L. RYAN AJ? Special Correspondent PRAGUE (AP) - Some high* ly placed Czechoslovak Cornrnu* nists who stand for liberaliza* tion of the regirns express hope privately for a gesture from the United States which might bol* ster their morale in what looks like an uphill fight against Mos» cow*inspired pressure. Non-Communist sources point out, however, that anything be« yond a gesture might add danger to an already potentially ex« plosive situation developing be* tween Czechoslovakia and other members of the Communist bloc. Communist informants say the United States, without appearing to interfere in the cur* rent situation, could do two things which might help both materially and in terms of morale in a country whose economic problems present formidable barriers to liberalization. One of these, the informants say, would be to extend most-fa- Printed ft Offset Vored'ftalion status to Slovakia In trade with the Unit* ed States. Hie other would be to reach an agreement in the dead* locked quarrel over $20 million worth of Czechoslovak gold im* pounded by the United States SJnee World War H. American trade with Communist Czechoslovakia reached a peak in 1966, an over*all ex« change figure of t !9 million. The United States sold this country mostly grain, fertilizers and other agricultural products. Last year, the trade figure fell off by half, The present regime, under Alexander Dubcek, first secretary of the Communist party, has made clear it would like most- favored-nation treatment, The policy of the U.S. administration is that an agreement should be negotiated. The administration favors similar procedures in the case of Romania, also a maverick in the European Communist camp. However, the U.S. Congress has been unwilling to act. The gold in question is Czechoslovakia's share of what was looted by the Nazis in Europe during the war. The United States, as a victor nation, pledged itself to seek the rightful owners. The gold was im- pounded V Since the Communist takeover in Czechoslovakia, however, and tlie subsequent Mtlotialfeatiott of all property, including that of foreigners, American citizens have registered $72 million ift claims, plus $41 million mote in interest. After the Communist takeo* ver, the United States also con* fiscated a steel hilll for which the previous non-Communist Czechoslovak government paid $17 million, The United States subsequently sold it for $9 million, which was applied against some of the claims, The present Prague government insists that the $17 million is deductible from any bill presented by the Americans. There have been long and fruitless negotiations about the gold. The Czechoslovaks say the Americans agreed in 1961 on a lower claims figure. The United States did imply it might forget about the interest. Jobs and Vision In 1820, 87 per cent of the U.S. working population did jobs that called mainly for muscle and stamina but. today. 75 per cent of the 25,000 new job classifications that didn't even exist 40 years ago put a high demand on good vision. FUTURE TEACHERS are Michele Patrick of Bethesda, Md., who hopes to make it her life's work, and President Johnson, who has said he will return to ti\e profession after leaving public office; The 17-year-old girl was chosen "Miss American Teen-ager" last year at New Jersey's Palisades Amusement Park, where the contest, is conducted each September. $ I U i «« |is Any completed row across is a winner/ YOU MAY BE ONE of 74,700 WINNERS!
