Gasoline, cigarettes, soap and other such products often were unavailable, Industrial goods were severely limited because of the strikes in the factories and wholesale shops. Public transport was dead. One Parisian doctor pointed to his empty waiting room and said people were not coming for medical care because they could not pay him, Some doctors in industrial regions said they would treat patients who could prove they were strikers. The strike committees could deliver such proof. Because of the lack of public transport, persons not on strike drove their own cars to work.

French cities were supplied with milk, vegetables, fruit and meat as drivers concentrated on perishable products. Still, some housewives started hoarding food and some items were hard to find in shops, On Saturday, for example, it was possible to buy beef, tomatoes or cherries in any shop but one could hardly get salt, sugar, oil, canned food or even wine. Prices doubled or tripled in a week. Trying to force prices down, some angry housewives threatened to bring charges of black market profeteering against grocers as In World War n. price ishable vegetables, such as to matoes, when grocers saw they might have to throw them Humphrey Choice in Pennsylvania PHILADELPHIA (AP) Vice President Hubert H.

The Supreme Court, through Warren, upset this holding and bottomed Its position on "the constitutional power of Congress to raise and support armies and to make all laws necessary and proper to that end." Douglas, in dissent, said it is "undoubtedly true" that Congress has broad and sweeping powers over Selective Service when a state of war has been declared. However, he went on, there is a question whether even the drafting of men is permissible without a declaration of war. Hearing for G&F Ouster Legal LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The Arkansas Supreme Court held today that Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller can proceed with scheduled ouster hearings for members of the state Game and Fish Commission. The court dissolved an injunction- issued by Chancellor John Jernigan of Little Rock prohibiting Rockefeller from holding the hearings. Rockefeller charged last year that he had evidence of misconduct in office by some commissioners, but he has not named them. The ouster hearings had been scheduled to begin last December, but attorneys for commissioners obtained the Injunction from Jernigan. The high court held unanimously that Jernigan erred when he held that Amendment 35, which set up the Game and Fish Commission, did not provide for removal hearings in the absence of enabling legisla. tion.

Vietnam has implicity denied. ; PARIS (AP) - The Americans and the North Vietnamese returned to the conference table for the fifth time today as Cyrus R. Vance prepared to leave after the session to make a firsthand report to President John,son. Vance's report presumably will provide a basis for a top level review of U.S. strategy in the search for peace, but American officials here expect the main line of developments to continue unchanged. Vance is deputy to Ambassador W. Averell Harriman, chief of the U.S. negotiating team. Harriman and North Vietnamese Ambassador Xuan Thuy started their third week of meetings today in the International Conference Center. The major issues in the talks are deadlocked, but Western diplomats believe North Vietnam is edging toward a concession to the U.S. demand that it admit the presence of its troops in South Vietnam. •"' This view is based on a statement in:?Hanoi Friday by Premier Pham Van Dong.

Harriman has argued' that such problems of peacemaking as these troops will be impossible to solve unless they are dealt with realistically. Both Harriman and Thuy have recognized the possibility that the talks may fail, but both appear satisfied to move slowly toward a showdown on the main issue now before them—the end of all U.S.. attacks on North Vietnam. Authorities who see this military action as fundamental to North Vietnamese strategy say the talks are likely to go very slowly for that reason.
