Your editor spent Sunday afternoon photographing high water at the Narrows and Millwood Lakes, and worked up a picture page for Monday- only to find it crowded out of both yesterday's and to* day's editions. It will run to* morrow. It takes one person a full work- tog day to produce a page of local pictures. Shooting the hand- camera is the least of it. And it doesn't take long to process the 35mm. film strip, or produce the prints, an automatic print- processor handling a 20- exposure film to about 30 minutes, But then the shop re- photographing begins, making screened negatives for the press plates, writing and setting the captions, and putting the assembly together in a complete newspaper page. While I was on the road Sunday a new drama was unfolding to the "back 4.0," which, for latecomers, is the miniature wildlife refuge on three town lots behind my house. My mated pair of Canadian Honkers broke off with their old pals, the domestic white Emden geese, after two disastrous attempts at a community nest, and this year set up their own hatching place. The Canadian hatch hasn't come off yet, but the gander is standing guard. He didn't quite flog me while I was putting out corn Sunday but took out his wrath on the domestic pair, running them bow-legged across the back 40. Right after that I discovered the white geese have set up their own nest, too, with 14 eggs to date. But "Mrs. Grundy," the loud-mouthed hen, is running around as usual tending to everybody's business except her own. I charged her off a* year ago, but am betting the Canadian hen comes through with some goslings. Some years ago business people discovered that the Wall Street Journal, far from being just a bankers' journal, Is actually America's national newspaper. It is always coming up with an exciting business adventure, or a humorous feature such as the one I read this morn- tog. Earl C. Gottschalk, Jr., tells of a strange ailment that affects many people who dine to Chinese restaurants to the U.S.A. It's called CRS - the Chinese Restaurant Syndrome. Patrons complain of headaches, numbness to the face, and other symptoms — but the trouble goes away In about an hour. Chinese restaurant owners ridicule the story, saying the complaints come from customers who have drunk too much, or from competing Italian pizza parlors. A university medical laboratory expert is studying the question, but meanwhile goes right on eat tog at Chinese restaurants, It's a humorous but apparently minor crisis.

By JOHN M. H1GHTOWER AP Special Correspondent PARIS (AP) - Top U.S. negotiators at the Paris peace talks are looking around for houses o r apartments, anticipating months of slow-motion talks with the North Vietnamese on the war to Southeast Asia. Aides said both W. Averell Harriman and Cyrus R. Vance, the two American negotiators, are planning to move out of the Hotel Crillon, where they have been living since the talks started May 13.

Already 63 cities have been designated to receive planning grants under the program, The $250 million cut was voted in a proposed $500 million special allotment to continue Federal National Mortgage Association subsidies for a special program of rental housing for low and moderate-income families. Tower contended the program, first adopted in 1961, has not really helped the poor. He said a new subsidy plan in the bill is designed to build apartments for low-income families, and should not be duplicated. Sen. Richard B. Russell, D- Ga., led the attack against the provision that would have made cities suffering riot damage eligible for federal grants under the long-established disaster relief program. Russell argued that money should be reserved for victims 01 natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes and floods as it now is. And he contended the provision could be interpreted as telling would-be looters and arsonists, "Go and have a big time, boys." Supreme Court Ruling Atomic Sub Has Hemmed In U.S. Draft Card Burners AP Hews Digest WASHINGTON (AP) Supreme Court has hemmed to dissenters by limiting the actions they can take to the name of free speech. Monday's 7*1 decision directly upheld the 1965 federal law that made destruction Of draft cards a crime. More than that, the ruling by Chief Justice Earl Warren riddled the idea that otherwise illegal actions are shielded from prosecution as "symbolic By DICK BARNES Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Navy wasted $5.9 million by manufacturing vast excess quantities of nonstandard aero-. nautical repair parts at four naval air stations, says the General Accounting Office. Investigators for the GAO, auditing arm of Congress, found bins filled with five times as many parts as the Navy's own directives said were required. The newly released GAO re- port also said that $2.2 million of the excess parts had been disposed of for a penny on the Park Asked for Beard's Bluff Area 1 In its' reply to the report, the Navy cited difficulties to trying to predict how many parts would be required. But it promised revamped procedures such as standardization of parts numbers and keeping track of how many parts have been used to the past. The excess parts were manufactured at naval air stations at Quonset Point, R.I.: Jacksonville, Fla.; North Island, Calif., and Alameda, Calif.

Consistory Meet at Washington Missing in the Atlantic WASHINGTON (AP) - Iti Navy reported today that an oil slick was spotted along the re* turn course of the missing sub* marine Scorpion two days after the atomic sub's last known communication. By FRED s, HOFFMAN AP Military Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Navy's available rescue equip- meat would have difficulty sav*, ing crewmen from the submarine Scorpion if the missing vessel were located deeper than 300 feet below the ocean's surface/ a top Navy expert said today, Capt. William M. Nicholson, manager of the Navy's Deep Submergence Systems Project, said "We are working essential* ly with equipment used in 1939" in saving men from the sunken submarine Squalus, The Squalus went down in 240 feet of water off New Hampshire. "There have been some improvements, but the equipment is basically the same," Nicholson said in an interview. The chief item in this equip-, ment is a rescue bell which is lowered from a surface vessel SfcTSTUL STSS' to the surface in the pressurized chamber. The Navy has been working' on an advanced rescue system,' part of a broad underwater program costing an estimated $600 million. But the first of a new breed of small rescue submarines capable of reaching depths of 3,500 feet will not be ready for use until 1970. Nicholson said. There are a number of deep- diving research subs like the Navy's Alvin which can go down about 6,000 feet and the private- " will regarding the Council of Deliberation to June will be discussed according to W. s. Williamson, secretary, portecfly can reach depths of 15,000 feet. ? ' * Nicholson said they could be used for search purposes under what he called favorable ocean conditions but are not equipped for rescue work. Adra. Thomas H. Moorer, chief of naval operations, told a 'news conference Monday night that the rescue bell could save trapped submarine crewmen from depths of "several hundred feet," depending on the condition of the subarralne. An aide said the rescue bell could operate down to 650 feet. But later Nicholson indicated that operations with the bell at such a depth were not practical. The key, he said, is the ability of a rescue vessel to moor and bold Us position over a submarine. For this reason, said Nichol- it is "difficult to use effec- .
