A Red Cross spokesman said 5,000 persons were being oused in 200 shelters in (lie ·tew Orleans urea and that up 100,000 were expected to vacuate their homes. "It's an extremely dangerous torrn," forecasters in New Organs said. Carmen was rated t a strength of between 3 and on a scale of 1 to 5. Camilte, he hurricane which left 167 ead on the Gulf Coast in 1969, ated a 5. At midafternoon an unusual aim preceded the storm. \reas along the coast reported atches of sunshine, sharp con- rast to heavy morning rams lat soaked people boarding up ie windows of homes and bus: icsses. Hurricane warning flags were lying from Morgan City, La., o Mobile. Ala., where tides vere predicted to be 5 to 10 eet above normal. Squalls with vinds at gale force were exacted from Panama City, Fla., o Vermillion Bay, La. "Heavy rains, with accumu- ations of 8 to 10 indies, will ipread northward across south- :asl Louisiana and southern tlississippi ahead of Carmen,' orecaslers said. "A few tornadoes are possible . . . along he coast from Biloxi, Miss., tc Fort Walton Beach, Fla., anc 00 miles inland." Carmen hit Yucatan's east coast Monday, killing .three people. It rolled back into the iulf of Mexico and grew stronger as it moved north vard. Until Saturday, forecasters hought the storm would Veer eastward, probably hitting Florida. "It hung around in the south ern Gulf too long," Crouch said. "If it-had come along fas ter, it would have followed the edge of a cold front and gone lastward, but the front played out before it got here." Coast Guard workers knockec on the door of every house on trand Isle before dawn Satur day, warning people to get out They found only two dozen o :he island's 2,000 residents stil there. A spokesman said Saturday that all two dozen hu beer evacuated, leaving only th Coast Guard, secure in a con crete bunker-like station. The Coast Guard also pickec 28 people off disabled cre« boats unable to reach shor ivith offshore oil workers. 0 companies said for the firs time in four years, they ha evacuated all rig workers from the Gulf. In advance of the storm streams of traffic moved out o New Orleans across th marked evacuation routes. On chain-reaction traffic acciden on Interstate Highway ' 10 in volved about 20 cars and closec part of the highway. Ther were no immediate detail about injuries. FLOODS PREDICTED , Flash floods were predicte throughout south Mississipp and south Louisiana,- includin New Orleans, which lies belqv sea level and. between the Mis sissippi River and Lake Pon chartrain. Along the Mississippi Gu C o a s t , evacuations wer spurred by memories of Hurr. cane Camille, the 1969 storr which ranked as the worst i the nation's history. Camill left 167 dead on the Gulf Coas then curved inward and kille 153 persons in floods and muc slides in Virginia and West Vir ginla. Officials said as many as 30 000 people left the bayous south Louisiana and found she ter in inland structures. Amnesty CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE) ndltion, some punishment," arkov said. Markov and Threlkeld said e fact lhat Vietnam was an ^declared war and that it has nee become popular sentiment at the United States should sver have entered the conflict lay be a consideration in judg g individual cases. NO FREE TICKET "But that's not to say these uys should have a free ticket get away with shirking their uties," Threlkeld said. "They ould have served as COs, crved their country honorably nd still not have had to fight i a war in which they didn't elieve." That is the point at which mnesty proponents and op wnents seem to have reached n impasse.. Many who favor a blanket mnesty reason lhat the re- stors and deserters felt trongly that to enter military ervice during the Vietnam era ·as immoral and would supporl policy i inconsistent with merican heritage. They reason, therefore, thai was not a point for compro lise and still isn't. Many who ed the United States rather han face military service or wernment-dictated a l t e r n a- ves feel that they have never one anything wrong. They be- eve they owe no apologies to nyone. "The reality of the problem s that justice doesn't work like iagic," Markov said. "The pro- lem is how can anybody to- ay--maybe seven, eight years fter the fact--determine for ure which of these guys was 'ncere and which was slack- ng?" NO AMNESTY Baugus is unswerving on the uestion of deserters and draft esistors: "We at the DAV are against ny form of amnesty. All the members here have voted to vear our DAV caps in protes rf the'amnesty. We are maimet and crippled and we don't fee t is right that they should go cot-free." H said he considers the men who fled the countiy to escape military service criminals. "They should be seized 'and lueslioned," B a u g u s said 'They were called oh to do omething...and they broke th( aw. "Most people don't even wan 1 o recognize the veteran anc give us a break. Why should hey want to recognize thi evaders?" And finally, the issue comes ;o the cast-Iron inflexibility o vritten law, as Threlkeld said 'They broke the law. It's ai simple as that. It is not fo: us, and it was not.for them ;p question the laws or the po icies of our elected leaders EMOTIONAL ISSUE It is an issue charged will emotion and .bitterness--bitter ness on the part of the veteran who fought and were wounde and now feel they may hav wasted their time and bodie about them, letting t h o s i when nobody seems to car they see as shirkers go free. Bitterness an the part of thos who served in the military an never saw combat, but wh wore the uniform and fulfills vhat they saw as their duty. Bitterness on'the part of wives mothers and fathers, sisters brothers, sons and daughter who lost loved ones in the war. And bitterness on the part o men who sincerely felt and fee they performed their m o r a duty by refusing to take an part in what they considerec an unjust fight. The bitterness may last a __ng as the bitterness betwee the North and South after Le surrendered to Grant at Appo attox. m i h r f rezornng petition submitted by Roy J. and Helen n. iviiiiigaii for property located I '"'"section of Hwy. 62 west and Finger Road.

Again he put the r ·iponsibility on the admini tratipn to come up with ec nomic solutions promptly. Noting Ford's vow to lick . flation by July 4, 1976, Man field said the situation must 1 faced up to "not next year, n on July 4, 1976, but this mont this year."

And Democratic leaders don't think they can act this year on health insurance and tax reform, two issues that could form the cornerstone of their program in 1975 when they expect to have an even stronger majority in both houses. That leaves campaign reform, strip mining and trade reform, where action could be concluded by mid-October, and the more complex problem of the Rockefeller nomination. Publicly, both House and Senale leaders have talked of action by the mid-Octnbcr adjournment target. Privately, many say Ihey would be just as happy if the former New York governor can't campaign as vice president this fall. MISSED YOUR PAPER? WE'RE SORRY!
