Goodell (Rep., N.Y.) and Vietnam war critic Dr. Benjamin Spock joined Jeffrey Glenn Miller's family in a funeral service Thursday. A faint murmur through an open window was the only sign that 3,000 of Miller's contemporaries were massed outside In quiet mourning, unable to get into the capac- itv-fillcd chapel. I Chapel that Miller's death may lelp bring peace to America. "It is a terrible tragedy for all Jeffrey's family," said Spock in a eulogy. "But for the rest of us, Kent State may be a blessing. The deaths of these young people may do more to end this war than any other single thing." "It could help bring peace to America," added Goodell, long a foe of the Vietnam war. The Miller family's rabbi, Julius Goldberg, said, "Jeffrey is silent now, but in his silence I think he would plead with you Miller, 20, from Plainview, N.Y., and another boy and two girls were slain by National Guardsmen i during an anti-war demonstration at Ohio's Kent State University Monday. Guard Leaving At Kent, the last of a dwindling force of 900 National Guardsmen made plans to leave the university today. ~ A funeral also was helc Thursday" in Lorain, Ohio, for William Schroeder, 19, a sophomore killed in Monday's violence.

While the service was in progress, thelhousands" of longhaired N boys and girls outside sat on the street or sidewalks or leaned quietly on police barricades — which they had- nuc but their precautions were unnecessary. In a brief "ecumenical" serv- lice on the str.eet, a speaker said of Miller's death: "Let it teach us again about life and death, who we are, where we are and how very late it is for this nation." As the coffin was carried out of the funeral home, most of the youths had their hands raised in the "V" sign of peace. When the procession began to move hundreds of youths walked alongside the funeral cars. Later, about 50 boys and girls, carrying a sign reading PROPOSE TIGHT THERMAL CURB CHICAGO, ILL. (AP) - The federal g6yerriment Thursday announced a proposed thermal pollution- standard that could seriously affect plans for nuclear power generating plants on Lake Michigan shores. The policy, which has not been adopted, states that water discharged into the. lake should be no more than one degree warmer than the lake at the point of discharge. '.The policy was announced-in Chicago by Murray Stein, chie enforcement officer for the Federal Water Pollution Con trol Administration. If enforced, said George Travers, Commonwealth Edison Co.'s director of environmental information, "we would have to shut down two of our existing facilities and stop construction at Zion and redesign.'' ~ He was referring to Edison's nuclear plant under construction !at Zion. Plans call for the plant to draw 2 billion gallons of water a day from the lake and return it up to 20 degrees higher than lake,temperatures. He also was referring to coal- burning power plants at Waukegan and Hammond, Ind., which discharge water that averages 12 degrees above lake tempera- ure.

Marshals of the West Side Peace' Committee, admonished them over loudspeakers to be "quiet, seated and respectful" — arid they were. They seemed more solemn, discouraged and remorseful than angry.

Also killed by the gunfire was Sandra Lee Scheurer, 20, of Boardman, Ohio, who was >uried Tuesday, and Allison Krause, 19, buried Wednesday at Pittsburgh, Pa. Young, Guard Chief Trade Charges on Kent Shooting WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) - Senator Stephen M. Young (Dem., Ohio) traded charges of "skunk" and "senile old liar" with the head of the Ohio National Guard Thursday in an angry exchange over the fatal shooting of four Kent State University students, • ...;,!... .. •; ; "If "he would call me a senile old liar to my face, I'd knock his false teeth down his gullet," said the 81-year-old Young! Adj. Gen. Sylvester T. Del Corso called Young that after the senator told colleagues that "trigger-happy" National Guardsmen opened fire on the students after one soldier's rifle was discharged accidentally. Young, in a later Senate' , speech, made public a letter from a Vietnam -veteran who witnessed-the. shooting Monday and branded it as murder. Jon T. Oplinger of 'Akron, Ohio, now a Kent student, wrote, "The guardsmen, very ^deliberately and it seemed under orders, took aim and fired a well-controlled volley toward the jxovid of students. "... Had I witnessed this event in Vietnam, I would have regarded it as murder~and I cannot help but do so now," the letter said. Del Corso, in a statement in STEPHEN M. YOUNG SYLVESTER T. DEL CORSO LOUE-PAT IS A PAT OF REAL BUTTER. . anwrican dairy association Columbus, Ohio, labeled young's assertion about the guardsmen as unfounded,-. in* flammatory and hearsay. He said the Ohio senator is a "senile old liar," "' Young said Del Corso is "a 2- by-4 politician," and added "My father told me never get into a spraying contest with a skunk." D.M.
