U.S., South Korea Anticipate
Selective Communist Terrorism

SEOUL (P) - Both Americans
and South Koreans expect North
Korea to step up harassment of
the South before long. The big
American concern is that angry
retaliation by South Korea might
threaten large scale hostilities.

a prospective war. At the North
Korean disposal is a huge army
of trained and armed militia
which can become the frontline
cannon fodder.
North Korea is believed to have
moved underground much of its
industrial complex, much of its
defenses, aircraft hangars, artil-
lery emplacements and the like.
What is expected is a Com-

federal effort against crime, warns

Clark made the remarks during
an interview centering on ques-
tions concerning Dr. Martin
* Luther King's plan to bring thou-

Washington in April to demon-
strate for jobs.
King has promised nonviolent,
peaceful law abiding demonstra-
tions. But he has said they will

Disruption Intolerable
In the interview, Clark said
"it's clear that any disruption of
the activities of this city or any
part of this city, or any office of
this government, or any of its
branches is intolerable and cannot
be permitted."
Clark's views on what the law
can do-and what it cannot-have
brought criticism in some in-
stances for failure to act.
The most controversial has been
his refusal thus far to prosecute
Stkely Carmichael, originator of
the Black Power slogan, who re-
cently returned from a trip which
included Communist nations where
he made speeches strongly critical
of the United States.
Clark would not discuss the
Carmichael matter, but it was
* learned that he touched on it in
a recent speech to mayors and po-
lice chiefs at a private session. He
said such a prosecution would
havebeen "the best politics in the
world" but asserted the govern-
ment did not have sufficient evi-
dne Last Shred
It is Clark's belief that "when
you start messing around with the
criminal law, you lose the last
shred of justice in government."
Johnson for months has pushed
Clark further into tougher, more
sensitive areas. Last October it
was Clark who organized federal
forces at the Pentagon during a
massive antiwar demonstration in
which about 35,000 persons took
Clark emphasizedthe need for
drug control because "the major
activity in drugs centers around
youth attitudes and permissive-
ness. Kids don't distinguish, and

maybe something else."

mean only $116 million in new
funds go into education.
The Republican governor indi-
cated he will veto the education
package because it does not in-
clude provision for a referendum.
But he said there were no plans
to call the legislature back into
session at this time.
Veto Bill
Kirk, at a news conference, said
this is not the time for "inflam-
matory statements." He then
accused the FEA, Democrats and
State School Supt. Floyd Chris-
tian of creating the problem.
In the quick paced day there
were these other developments:
--Kirk accused the "downtown"
Democrats of Duval, Jacksonville,
Dade, and Miami counties with
scuttling the recent special ses-
sion, claiming "their obvious greed
for local property tax relief in
their downtown areas" wrecked
the hopes for a satisfactory edu-
cation package.
-The governor met with Con-
stans for nearly an hour, and
later talked with key members of
the Governor's Commission for
Quality Education, a 30 member
group that conducted a .study of
Florida education and recom-
mended various structural changes
in the system.

replies to some questions involving
military security matters.
These include demands for a

well as a complete rundown on
the plans under which it operated.
There is a growing feeling that
the North Koreans will hold the
Pueblo's crew until they have
milked every possible drop of
propaganda from the incident.
Remains Hopeful
Administration officials have
denounced the "confessions" as
false. But as ,long. as the men are
held in captivity there are no
means of proving this.
Despite these difficulties, Sen-
ate Democratic Leader Mike
Mansfield of Montana said in an
interview he remains hopeful the
men will be released in a reason-
able time.
He said he was "a little bit en-

action in releasing the names of
