His Return To Bench (C.UI75 N.Y. Times Scrvlri. WASHINGTON - The physical capacity of Associate Justice William 0 Douglas to return to the Supreme Court next October remains in serious •'doubt amid unchallenged reports that •his colleagues have curbed his at- fempts to vote as an absentee justice. •••• Douglas has reportedly been refused •a discharge he sought from the Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine in New York City because his doctors insist that he is not ready to travel to his home in Goose Prairie, Wash., where he wishes to spend the summer. When the 76-yearvbld justice reported to the institute early in April for stroke therapy, his stay there was expected to be three or four weeks. However, since then the time has been steadily extended, and on Monday his Washington physician, Dr. N. Thomas 1 Connally, said it would be "just a matter of a few weeks." • •''-•••• • ,-..,- Asked about the truth of published . U 'other 5-to-4 'ruilngs7he "was in the reports that Douglas's participation in the court's decision-making had been restricted during the last six months, Barrett McGurn, the court's'public Information officer 1 , replied: "no comment." According to one account, the court has postponed until the 1975-76 term decisions In all cases In which Douglas was not present at the closed conference when the vote was taken but submitted an absentee vote that would have made him the deciding justice in a 5-to-4 ruling. / None of the evidence available from the record of the term that closed last Monday is in conflict with this account, although, In the face of official silence, the accuracy of the account cannot be established: Of the seven 5-to-4 decisions in which Douglas was listed in the majority during the term, all were argued and voted on before he suffered his stroke^ on New Year's Eve. In the minority, arid thus his vote did not affect the outcome i' • All toldj the court ordered eight cases reargued during the next term, an unusually high number. In an average year, one or two cases may be argued but a decision withheld. One of these was a challenge to the Court's 1972 decision prohibiting capital punishment* Douglas attended oral argument of the case but not the court conference a few days later at which the justices normally vote on that week's cases. The decision-making processes of the Supreme Court are conducted in secret. Presumably a majority of the nine justices could refuse to recognize an absentee vote that decided a case. Historically, justices who become unable to operate at full efficiency due to "age or disability have been privately asked by their colleagues to resign. The only alternative to voluntary retirement, under the constitution, is impeachment. Portugal's Military Regime Meeting Resistance ,Unrest LISBON (UPI) - When soldiers arrived to re-educate the people of Braganca politically, thhey used a helicop- . ter to shower the northern city with red carnations -the symbol of Portu- , gal's revolution. A local reporter said some of the ; residents greeted the gesture by stamping on the flowers and muttering, "They should have saved their gasoline." Troops involved in a so-called /'dynamizatlon campaign" have enoun- tered blocked roads and demonstrations in other towns. In one case, a team was trapped inside a wine cooperative for 10 hours along with the agriculture minister, who wanted to see how well the program was going. Incidents such as these have been cropping up with mounting frequency since the country's left-wing military regime launched its latest .proselytizing effort in the conservative north' late In May. v The ruling Armed Forces Movement also has encountered hostility in'the Azores. Crowds on one of those mid-At- 'lantic islands forced the resignation of their left-wing governor by invading •the local ja'dio station and broadcasting appeals for insurrection. Officials and the Communists, who promoted the proselytizing campaign, blame the'ill-Will on surviving pockets of "reactionaries," but they are ob- •viously worried about it. This is particularly true in, the north where feelings a'gainst the military and the Cornmu- nists could spell trouble for their drive to promote a left-wing Socialist society. "We don't want their revolution anymore," one northerner told a foreign correspondent recently. "What have they done for us except make things worse?." A reporter from the left-wing Diario de Noticias, who has been accompanying the troops, reported reaction to the campaign in a similar vein. "Throughout our pilgrimage from Federally Funded Experimental Program On Taxis Held In Danville DANVILLE, 111. (UPI) - A federally funded experimental program will allow the elderly, the young and the disabled to ride taxis in Danville for 25 •per cent of regular fare, Sen. Charles H. Percy, R-I11., saidTuesday. 1 The $314,500 grant from the U.S. Transportation Department will pay 75 per cent of the cab fare for persons in Danville who are over age 55, under 21 or disabled. The 28,000 eligible persons would be allowed to buy up to $20 per week in taxi tickets at 25 per cent of their face value. Percy's office said Danville is one of only two cities in the United States to receive a grant for the program, which begins this fall. Danville currently has no public transportation system. The awarding of the grant was made public at the weekly city council meeting by Danville Mayor David Palmer. village to village in the northeast, we many times have felt the mistrust of the people," he said. The reporter said 'the unrest was prevalent in the small villages where he quoted residents as being opposed to the^military regime. "They (the soldiers) were here, but they didn't do anything. The people who looked to them were stupid," he quoted one resident as saying In Guadramil. "They promised a lot, but did nothing. They came once and that was enough. We only question why they came ; at all," ' The Communists and their alliesjn the Portuguese Democratic Movement, who promoted the campaign after their candidates in the region were trounced in the April 25 elections, have encountered more serious ill-will. A hand grenade demolished the Communist party's headquarters in Fafe and crowds twice beat up the party representatives In Vlseu and burned down their booth for party literature. In Braganca, other crowds beat up the local leader of the Democratic Movement and ran him out of town. Other outbreaks of public unrest have been reported in Alfandega da Fe, Macedo de Cavaleiros and Carrazeda de Ansiaes. ; The Communist party accused the Socialist party of being involved* in " some of the incidents and said local police refused to intervene against the crowds. ; • SAVE 24% to 32% Double BeltedPblyglasTires for Compact, Standard & Big Cars Sale Ends Sat.Nght A78-13 Size Fits Vegas, Pintos, Colts, Gremlins, Falcons, Toyotas and Other Compacts Custom Power Cushion Polyglas This is America's largest,selling liro - for lots of good reasons.

Frwort (III.) Journal-Standard, W«dn«gd«y,July 9, 1976 Pay 8 . Val Ingham, 37, a New Zealander who was bitten on the lip by a puppy on April 14 in Gambia, West Africa, died from the disease Tuesday. Ingham was'an agricultural adviser for the United Nations. Robert Apps, 22, died in another London hospital last week after being in contact with a sick dog in India. Prof. Ian Mclntyre, Dean of Glas• gow Medical iSchool and a close friend of'Ingham, said "now that two men have died within a short time in London this sounds a warning to the British public for the continuing of quarantine regulations, and also for a stop to the silly smuggling of dogs and cats into Britain from the Continent," 27-29 W.
