Monday/ J une 11, 1973 Reporter Manila; Gains fiy PHIL NEWSOM TJPI Foreign News- Analyst Population Gain: Hie size of the Soviet community in Manila has doubled t6 two with the arrival of a Second accredited Soviet news correspondent'in Manila. Foreign News> Cftfflmenjary^ The wewly arrived Soviet journalist, from ithe official Tassi news agency, joins a colleague from Pravda, the Comimanist party newspaper, who broke ground for Soviet journalism in the Philippines late last year. Previously the Philippines allowed only brief visits by journalists from Socialist countries and declined to give any accreditation to them as Manila-based correspondents. Diplomatic sources interpret the presence of two Soviet journalises in Manila as ia sign that Moscow wants to have its own eyes and ears in the Philippines in the absence of diplomatic relations,. and wants to make sure it Is not at the losing end of any pwpagan- da barrage from China. Heath Gaining: Speculation is booming in parliamentary lobbies and Lon* don news"pa,pers that Prime Minister Edward Heath may decide to try Conservative party luck In parliamentary general elections tihis fall. K has been sparked by the Heath government's showing In a recent nationally conducted opinion poll which gave It a two .per cent ; lead over the opposition Labor party for the first time in two years. Such a lead for a government after three years in office is unusual. At the some period the last Labor government was running about 25 per cent behind the Conservatives. Another efc couraging sign for Heath's Conservatives was their good showing In local govemmelit elections this week, However, officiate say spring, l!)?4, is likely to be the first possible election date. In Britain the prime minister decides when to hold general elections at any time within five years after he first was elected. Subject! Pompidou's Health: French President Pompidou's state of health has started bursts of speculation about a successor. Two obvious candi­ dates present themselves — Finance Minister Valery discard d'Estaing, whom Pont* pidou himself once described as "one of the handful of men worthy of controlling France's destiny," and former Premier Jacques Ohiabnn-Dclimas. But one report has quoted Edgflf Faure, veteran political!. and president of the national assembly, as spying, "Are you so sure I will not present myself?" Faure is 72. rchant Marine Graduate h toils Unique Job Skills % By ROBERT STRAND $VALLE«fO, Calif.

J«RT * STOlet | 1 | Il g usefuT"^— V 'l have learned something akeM*i'*f£ellini says. "I can't understand wlhiy people go to college* Jg> take degrees in jjbliitic^^ience."

He says the licensed caitpain just sits and watches, and interferes only if the vessel appears to be in actual danger. Chip and Paint When in port, first year midshipmen chip and paint. Upper class engineering students take the boilers and turbines apart and put them back together. Things always weren't so rosy for Cellini at the maritime academy. When he first came aboard, he recalls that upper classmen hazed the newcomers. in the old military school tradition. The hazing, and miany of the regulations, he thinks, were unnecessary. He said those methods didn't prepare youths for leadership in civilian situations. Now the academy is described as semimilitary. Midshipmen wear uniforms, but don't bother With hats, and their twice dlaily 1 formations are informal enough to resemble a gaggle of Boy Scouts. Sinking Ship? For a couple of years, Cellini wasn't sure but that his ship would sink from under him— the academy barely attracted enough applicants to fill available spaces. The academy, founded in 1929, has a $1.3 million budget, and normally has 240 students. The federal government provides a subsidy of $600 per student, plus costs of maintaining the Golden, Bear. ""The crisis was resolved last year when the legislature voted that the academy would be continued. But the academy was required to broaden its program to include oceanography and computer science and to obtain full accreditation as a college. Rear Adm. Joseph P. Rizza, the superintendent, thinks that however much ithe nation's merchant marine fleet might shrink, his graduates will still be in demand. Will Be Sought He says they will be sought for new automated ships of the future and for an increasing number of jobs ashore in sophisticated activities related to shipping. The near future—next Augus —Rizza says, probably wil bring the academy's first couple of women students. He says he doesn't doubt thaft they will be able to find jobs after graduating. Rizza also hopes the near future will include a visit of the academy training ship ito China. An application has been made through Chinese diiplorn'ats stationed in Canada. Over 200 CHAIRS on SALE!

The system is so sophisticated that the police know at once exactly where to send help. The technology involved in the system was from the NASA —The National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Signall­ ing devices of the type used in the Futuresville security system had been developed for the space program. Some earfihlings don't need to wait for the emergence . of Futuresville to take advantage of the development. Such a system is helping teachers summon help when things get unruly in their classrooms or school corridors. Use System Six schools in Georgia, the Sacramento, Calif. High School, and two schools in New York City have such a system. The teachers wear the small, pen- size ultrasonic device in a pocket. The push of a pen button lights up on a grid in the i Security office, showing the teacher's location. Help is dispatched at once. The teacher knows help is on the way because the pen signal also lights up a small square green panel in the ball or in her classroom. When that light goes out it means "signal received and help is en route." The present and future use of the signalling device was described in an interview with Norman Schlaff, president of Norcon Electronics Inc., a New I York communication firm. He 9aid a block association in New York is investigating installation of such a system for its members. A person needing help inside a house, for example, would press his pen button and a light would go on either outside his house or apartment. And a noise-maker would be activated, too, attracting further attention. | Schlaff sees a use for the j devices in apartment corridors' —especially as signaling systems for persons who live alone and get into stressful situa/tions. In the schools, he said, most! often a brawny faculty member' is sent on the rescue mission.; "Usually, it is a phys -ed toacher," he s-iid. Sc-hlaff's firm also ha.s nstal'ed close circuit television in two schools in Brooklyn, N.Y.
