Nerve Gas
Kills Sheep
SALT LAKE CIT'Y ' -- State
officials are convinced that a mist
of lethal nerve gas was blown 30
miles from a top secret Army
chemicalwarfare testrarea on
March 13, killing 6,400 sheep in
western Utah's Skull Valley.
The Army said yesterday that
its investigation will continue in
the remote region 50 miles south-
west of Salt Lake City- and that
"no definite cause of death" has
yet been determined.
The head of a special Utah in-
vestigating team said yesterday
that "we are as positive as med-
ical science can ever be" that
nerve gas tests conducted at the
Army's top secret Dugway Prov-
ing Grounds killed the sheep.
Dr. D.- A. Osguthorpe said he
feels "sufficient tests" have been
made to link the deaths with
Army operations March 13.
Gov. Calvin L. Rampton also
said he is convinced the Army was
to blame. He has urged the fed-
eral government, to reimburse
sheep ranchers for their estimated
$300,000 loss.
"We have narrowed the cause
of death to an organic phosphate
compound - the kindthat is a
component of nerve gas," Osgu-
thorpe said.

NEW YORK (P)-Adam Clayton
Powell, back from Bimini with
a defiant message of Black Power,
was mobbed and cheered in a wild,
rain soaked Harlem parade yes-
Although he was silent on his
own plans, others hinted Powell
might try to retake his seat in
Congress, from which he was
ousted a year ago.
Bare headed and smiling in a
driving rain, Powell stood on a
ladder on a street corner in the
center of Harlem and shouted
through loudspeakers:
'Sock It To 'Em'
"Let's sock it to 'em. I want
LBJ to hear me in Washington."
Powell hasn't been home for
more than 18 months for fear of
arrest for court contempt stem-
ming from a $211,500 libel judg-
"We're non violent, but we've
got to walk with chips on our
shoulders, and if anybody knocks
them off, kick the hell out of
'em," he cried.
Powell waved a dog eared copy
of the report of the President's

which concluded that last sum-
mer's riots were caused mostly by
white racism.
Powell made the three finger
salute--"W" for Watts-and, he
said, double V for victory over
white racists and Uncle Toms.
Arrived Friday
Powell arrived in New York
Friday night, surrendered to au-
thorities and was- paroled on
promise to appeal the contempt
conviction within two weeks.
He said he viewed this trip as
the opening of his re-election
"Any Negro crazy enough to
run against me is the first Negro
to be crucified in the North," he
said with a smile.
Special Election
One of his former aides, John
H. Young, who had declared he
would enter the June 18 primary,
said he will bow out if Powell
"makes a real effort to take his
seat in Congress this coming
If Powell does not claim the
seat he won in a special election
last April, Young said he would
oppose him.
James H. Meredith, first Negro
to enter the University of Missis-
sippi, also had announced for the
Democratic nomination b e f o r e
Powell's return.

dorsed Powell last Thursday.

A Panel Discussion:

PRAGUE ()-An official Czech
announcement s a i d yesterday
that party chairman Alexander
Dubcek and other officials went
to Dresden, about three hours
from Prague byucar, to discuss
"economic and political issues"
with orthodox Communist party
News media in Communist Eu-
rope outside Czechoslovakia were
silent on the meeting and its par-
ticipants, but informants here said
they included Leonid Brezhnev,
Poland's Waldyslaw Gomulka and
Walter Ulbricht of East Germany.
All are orthodox Communists.
Despite assurance from Czecho-
slovakia that it remains committed
to the Moscow alliance, its allies
are known to be concerned about
repercussions from Prague's wave
of "socialist democraticization."
Poland has just gone through
two weeks of antigovernment stu-
dent disturbances.
The liberal trend was under
scored by a statement yesterday
from Romania, a rebel in terms
of foreign policy, but dogmatic at

"should be able to freely express
his views on policies of the Com-
munist party," indicating this also
applied to criticism.
"We must not fear public de-
bates," he said at a Central Com-
mittee meeting.
Meet at Dresden1
The choice of Dresden for the
meeting put it virtually out of
reach for the scores of Western
correspondents here and its selec-
tion was assumed to be deliberate.
Since taking over in January
from Stalinist Antonin Novotny
as new first party secretary, Dub-
cek has met with Brezhnev, Hun-
gary's Janos Kadar and Gomulka
in separate talks.
He was reported turned down
twice when he asked for a similar
session with Ulbricht, head of
Czechoslovakia's fourth Commun-
ist neighbor, and a critic of the
liberalization program.
Criticize Poles
In public debate here, Polish
Communist leaders have been cri-

'.Polish Students End
Sit-In Demonstration

Nelson A. Rockefeller

WARSAW, Poland OP) - War-
saw's defiant students ended
three sit-in demonstrations yes-
terday after gaining an appre-
ciable measure of popular support.
At Polytechnic College, 4,000
students yielded in the face of
threatened mass expulsionscand
an awesome show of police force.
At Warsaw University and the
College of Agriculture, several
thousand students abandoned 36
hour and 12 hour sleep-ins.
The protests were basically
against alleged' police brutality in
stopping demonstrations against
what the students call "slander-
ous and false" reporting of events
in the state controlled press. .
The students appealed to have
their arguments receive publicity.
Since a March 8 campus dem-
onstration at Warsaw University,
students across this Communist
ruled nation have taken up the.
crusade for more liberalization of
their socialist society.
At the two day Polytechnic sit-
in, students painted their resolu-
tions and slogans on signs and
draped them on the administra-
tion building, which faces busy
midtown streets.
Hundreds of Warsaw citizens
flocked to the campus to contri-
bute food to the bivouacked stu-
dents. More than 10,000 Poles as-
sembled in front of the school
Friday night to shout support for
the students.
School officials promised im-
munity to the demonstrators if
they broke up during the night
instead of carrying the sit-in to
its scheduled morning conclusion
in defiance of the college rector
and Communist authorities.
Hundreds of helmeted police
encircled the school to bolster the
rector's demand. Singing the
Polish national anthem, the stu-
dents packed their cards, guitars,
text books, and blankets and went
By dawn, police had removed
all signs from the school buildings.

Posted notices said yesterday's
classes were cancelled.
The Communist party news-
paper Trybuna Ludu accused in-
ternational Zionist centers of a
canrpaign of "slander and spittle"
against Poland.
"On the pretext of acting in
protest against cases of alleged
anti-Semitic incidents in our
country, Zionist centers are or-
ganizing an international spitting
campaign," the newspaper said.
By "alleged anti-Semitic inci-
dent," the newspaper apparently
was referring to a Polish propa-
ganda campaign putting the main
blame for student demonstrations
and eruptions of street rioting on
Zionist enemies of the state.
In a speech Tuesday night,
party chief Wladyslaw Gomulka
attempted to tone down .the at-
tacks .on Zionists. But 'there are
persistent signs that he has not
been entirely successful. These in-
clude crude slogans such as "He-
brew Jewish Aggressors" at a
party staged factory rally protest-
ing the Israeli attack on Jordan.

Arab Backed Resolution
CodmsIsraeli Raids

India, Pakistan and Senegal laid
before the U.N. Security Council
last night an Arab backed resolu-
tion calling for condemnation of
Israel's massive raid against al-
leged terrorist camps in Jordan.
The proposal also warned Is-
rael that in the event of further
such actions, "the Security Coun-
cil would have to consider such
measures as are envisaged in the
U.N. charter" - economic or mil-
itary reprisals.
The three sponsors acted after
compromise efforts stalled after

tern nations insisted that the res-
olution also deplore "violent acts"
- interpreted to mean Arab com-
mando raids on Israel.
Just before the three nation
resolution was made public Is-
raeli Ambassador Yosef Tekoah
urged the council to act against
the so called Arab "freedom figh-
ters" to make sure they did not
interpret the absence of UN ac-
tion as indifference.
Freedom Fighters
Some council members doubted
that the resolution could muster
the nine votes required for ap-
proval, since it made no reference
to anti Israeli operations origin-
ating on Arab territory.
The council meeting was de-
layed for more than six hours
while negotiators sought to find
a formula which could; win un-
animous approval.
Settled Soon
Some expressed hope the issue
could be settled before long so the
15 nation council could convene.
receive the compromise resolution
and adopt it by unanimous vote.
The council had been called to
meet at noon, and the members
were all present, but they delayed
the meeting while the negotiations
