Court Rejects Maryland Loyalty OathIi 2dvidflndG (Z1ir

By The Associated Press

preme Court yesterday threw out
Maryland's loyalty oath for teach-
ers and other public employes on
the grounds that its requirements
are too imprecise.
The Maryland loyalty program
is the fourth such state program
upset by the court since 1964.
Others involved Arizona, New
York and Washington state.
The 6-3Wdecision written by
Justice William O. Douglas, left
serious doubt that any other state
program requiring loyalty certifi-
cates of teachers could pass high
court muster.
"We are in the First Amend-
ment field," Douglas wrote. "The
continuing surveillance which this
type of law places on teachers is
hostile to academic freedom."
Specifically, the majority found
fault with the requirement that
prospective state employes certify
they are not engaged "in one way
or another" in an attempt to
forcibly overthrow the U.S. or
Maryland government.
Douglas said the six judges did
not know whether this was in-
tended to cover innocent mem-
bership in a subversive organiza-
"As we have said in like situa-
tions," Douglas continued, "the
oath required must not be so
vague and broad as to make men
of common intelligence speculate
at their peril on its meaning.
Justices John M. Harlan, Pot-
ter Stewart and Byron B. White
dissented, with Harlan saying
they found nothing unconstitu-
tional about the oath. He attri-
buted to the majority "a process
of reasoning that defies analysis."
U.S. Rebuffs
Moscow Talks
partment officials said yesterday
there was no basis for reports
that the United States would send
* representatives to Moscow for
Vietnam peace talks with Nobel
Prize winners.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.,
civil rights leader and 1964 reci-
pient of the Nobel Peace Prize,
said last week he had accepted an
invitation to East-West talks on
the Asian war.
King said he understood that
representatives of North and
South Vietnam, and the United
States and the Viet Cong also
had accepted.
U.S. officials said there appear-
ed to be confusion over plans of
a Norwegian committee to send
a delegation to Hanoi, Saigon and
Washington to try to find a
starting point for negotiations.
The officials said the Johnson
administration would cooperate
in meeting with a delegation if it{
came here.
But they said they had no in-
formation on plans of King to
travel to Moscow and said the
civil rights leader had not been
in contact with the State Depart-
In Norway, Dr. J. B. Hygen of
the Nobel Peace Prize committee
said he had invited King but
added "thereare no definite plans
so far." Hygen's group is not con-
nected with the Nobel Committee.,

authorized as a means of main-
taining manpower levels ordered
by Congress.
The additions in the Army Re-
serves would be absorbed in the
existing units. The new guard
units would be mainly of com-
pany or detachment size.
In its official announcement,
the Pentagon made no specific
mention of the riot control de-
mands which have weighed heav-
ily on the guard in recent years.
It referred only to the requests
for troops for state uses.
The guard had 2,900 units
planned previously under the
Pentagon's latest reorganization
Congress Poll
Favors Ethics
WASHINGTON - A l t h o ugh
neither house of Congress has a
code of ethics yet, a Missouri con-
gressman reported yesterday that
a majority of senators and repre-
sentatives answering a poll said
they favor a code for newsmen
covering the House and Senate.
Rep. William L. Hungate (D-
Mo), said 150 of the 533 members
answered his survey, and 91 favor
a code of ethics for the press while
43 oppose it. Most of those answer-.
ing did not sign their names.
The questions showed that most
congressmen answering the poll

National Implications
Kentucky Democrats and Re-
publicans prepared to get out their
organizational vote Tuesday in a
governor's race which could have
national implications.
A Republican victory might in-
dicate a continued voter trend
against President Johnson's poli-
cies, .which have been denounced
by Republican candidate Louie B.
Nunn, who has also attacked the
eight-year record of the current
Democratic faction.
A triumph by Democratic can-
didate Henry Ward might indicate
the electorate's purported resent-
ment of Johnson is not as deep as
some polls show-or at any rate
it is subordinate to state issues.


Such projects now under way or
in the planning stages-bridges,
dams, harbors and levees-will
cost the American taxpayer $15.2
billion by the time they are fin-
ished years from now. And Con-
gress, while huffing mightily about
economy, is in the final stages of
approving new work that is con-
tributed an ultimate $4.1 billion to

started July 1, spending on the
44 public works projects planned

billion. That compares with such,
other big items as $4.6 billion for
space, $2.1 billion for Medicare
and $2.26 billion for the Office of
Economic Opportunity-the anti-
poverty program. It is a political

But Rep. Charles S. Gubser (R-
