PARIS (AP) _ President Charles de Gaulle called in his Cabinet today to plan moves to combat the massive strikes strangling France. Meanwhile, the Ascension Day religious holiday shut down most of the small stores and factories that had not been struck. Paris had a deserted air as the Cabinet ministers drove up to the Elysee Palace. It was like a Sunday except that fewer cars than normal were out because of gasoline shortages and the taxi strike. Army trucks which have been used for emergency transportation took the day off. Over the nation, it was the same story. Restaurants, movie houses and food shops-many of them largely depleted of staples —were about the only businesses open. The Cabinet meeting was expected to be the last for several ministers.

Workers were reported going By DAVE NYHAN Associated Press Writer BOSTON (AP) _ U.S. marshals seiaed a convicted draft evader in a church Wednesday touching off an hour-long dispute which ended with police beating back antidraft demonstrators. Robert A, Talmanson, 21, of Boston, was carried from the altar of the Arlington Street Uni- tarian-Universalist Church to a rear door where some 200youth- ful protesters sang and shouted, "Hell no, Tally, you won't go!" Marshals carried him to a car waiting in a parking lot nearby, but the demonstrators rushed past police and surrounded the vehicle, which was immobilized for a half-hour by demonstrators lying on its roof and in its path. Police reinforcements sent a flying wedge to drag Talmanson to a waiting police van which sped away. The move touched off a series of fist fights in which demonstrators were hurled to the ground and at least 15 were taken into custody. They later were released. U.S. Atty. Paul S. Markham, said Talmanson was picked up in the afternoon instead of the quieter night hours because "it would be a sorry state if the United States government had to enforce the law," The Rev, John Harmon of Boston, an Episcopal minister, had his clerical collar ripped from his throat in a scuffle, He was one of several clergymen at the scene, Left inside the church was Army Spec. 4 William Chase, 19, of Dennis, a Vietnam veteran who the Army said is absent without leave from Ft. Lewis, Wash, The marshals ignored Chase, since there is no federal civilian charge against him. Chase and Talmanson spent two nights in the church with members of The Resistance, an antidraft group, which claimed sanctuary for the pair. in Peace Conference re- leaders to I's offer to negotiations on wage increases and other benefits.

And it will take far more than a few thousand returning workers to end the paralysis in postal delivery, transport, business and industrial life, and the growing shortages of food, cash and gasoline. Pompidou succeeded in rallying enough support in the National Assembly Wednesday night to defeat a motion of censure which would have forced him out of office and would have been a severe blow to President Charles de Gaulle's already weakened prestige. But as the vote was being counted, several thousand students marched on the assembly to protest the government's ban on the return to France of the radical student leader Daniel "Danny the Red" Cohn-Bendit, who had gone to Amsterdam to talk to Dutch students. Several hundred demonstrators during the night attacked the senate building in the Latin Quarter, breaking windows with rocks and receiving an answering volley of tear gas grenades. $179,540 Lawsuit Is United States he took two stiff *** to their jobs ta some sma11 to sneak around ta the nighttime shots of bourbon, mounted the ^T^ outslde the ^"'" rostrum- and knocked 'em dead.

Policeman Takes Case to Commission LITTLE ROCK (AP) _ State Police Maj. Kenneth McKee, recently replaced as commander of the Highway Patrol, planned to take his case before the State Police Commission today. State Police Director Ralph Scott has not said what action he plans to recommend to the commission, and McKee said he had not discussed the matter with Scott. McKee was relieved of his position when he was placed on sick leave by Scott last week. McKee visited the governor's office Wednesday, but he said he did not come to talk with Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller. McKee said, "No comment," when he was asked about a neurological examination he underwent in New York at Rockefeller's expense. Asked about a report that he was arrested in Missouri for driving while intoxicated, McKee said, "I was arrested and I was guilty of careless and imprudent driving." " 'A personal damage-^rft^for $179,540 is scheduled in Hempstead Circuit Court here today. The suit was filed by Mrs. Lucy Mae Moore, administrator, for the estate of the late Jim Moore, against Charles W. Smith, et al, dba as Parker Bros. FarmingCo. in Miller County. The suit is the result of a highway collision on October 25,1967 between vehicles driven by Charles W. Smithand Jim Moore. Moore, a constable at Fulton for many years, was killed in the accident. Attorneys for the plaintiff are James H. Pilkinton and Norman Smith; for the defendants, Albert Graves and Victor H. Hlavinka. Thomas Wray and wife were awarded a $35,000 judgment by a jury against the Arkansas Highway Department. The case involved right-of-way property on Interstate 30. Another right-of-way Legislature, Critical of WR, Has Bills LITTLE ROCK (AP) - Two of the administration's major bills were tossed to the legislature Wednesday as the General Assembly continued honing its teeth with criticism of Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller. The administration's bill to increase the cigarette tax by 3 cents was introduced in the Arkansas House and the mixed drink bill was introduced in the Arkansas Senate. The cigarette tax bill was introduced by Reps. B.D. "Doug" Brandon of Little Rock, Charles Davis of Springdale and James L. Sheets of Siloam Springs The bill would raise the tax on cigarettes from 8 to 11 cents per package. Sen. Q A Byrum Hurst of Hot ; Springs, sayiiig the governor didn't ask him to do it, intro^ duced the mixed drink bill. ••'•*• Hurst said his constituents in Garland County wanted the bill and that he acted after it became apparent that Rockefeller was not going to be able to find another sponsor, "I introduced a bill like this long before the governor was ever heard of in Arkansas," Hurst said.

See LEGISLATURE on Page Two Awards Given Out at Yerger High School By STEPHENS BROENING Associated Press Writer PARIS (AP) - U.S. Ambassador W. Averell Harriman predicted today that the deadlock in the Vietnam peace talks will break some day and that the North Vietnamese will make the concessions. . "This sort of thing can't go on forever," Harriman told newsmen as he left his hotel for the U.S. Embassy. "The North Vietnamese are going to have to face up to realities sooner or later." The chief U.S. negotiator said he did not take seriously North Vietnamese envoy Xnan Thuy's statement Wednesday that the U.S. government "must bear the full and entire responsibility" if the talks do not produce results. This was interpreted by some observers as a threat to break up the conference if the United States did not come around to Hanoi's position. With die conference in recess until Monday, Harriman said he would spend the time until then looking into various aspects of the conference and expected to have some new ideas to talk about by Monday. Harriman and Thuy now have met four times in the past 10 days, and each time they have come away standing rigidly on their original positions. U.S. spokesmen have called the North Vietnamese '"stubborn." The Vietnamese called the Americans "obstinate." The stumbling block is always the same—North Vietnamese insistence on an unconditional end to U.S. bombing of their country and U.S. insistence that "recip- ^bcal restraint", on Hanoi's part "must accompany a halt in the bonibine. "The talks are frozen," said one neutral diplomat after Wednesday's three-hour meeting. At that meeting Thuy rejected Harriman's proposal that both delegations stop making their conference statements public. Winners in Litter Slogan Contest Here In the Slogan contest pertain- • .«.,... Lost Week, Almost as Many as Previous Week AP News Digest U.S. Losing More Planes SAIGON (AP) ~ The number of Americans reported killed last week was the second larg* est weekly toll of the Vietnam war. The U.S. Command an* nounced today that 549 Amerl- cans died in action, 13 less than the record 562 killed the pre« vious week.

The two commands said 4,765 of the enemy were killed last week. The U.S. Command also revised its report of enemy killed the week before, raising it from 5,552 to 8,186. Although not a record, this was among the heaviest tolls of the war. The U.S. Command said the report raised the total American combat casualties in Vietnam since Jan. 1, 1961, to 23,500 killed and 143,676 wounded, with 74,582 of the latter requiring hospitalization. A total of 1,211 Americans are missing, or captured, the report said. The summary said enemy casualties since Jan. 1,1961, are at least 350,074 killed.
