A PRESIDENTIAL COMMISSION recommended yesterday
that construction workers elect union negotiators with binding
power to negotiate labor contracts, and give up membership
votes to approve or reject agreements.
"The whole concern there is to avert the growing rejection of
contracts by the rank-and-file," said a spokesman for Secretary of
Labor George P. Shultz, chairman of the labor-in-government com-
A unnamed source in the AFL-CIO Building and Construction1
Trades Department indicated that the recommendation met with
approval there. The department is composed of 17 unions with some
3.5 million members.
The labor source added that there might be some opposition
from local unions to giving up membership ratification votes for
wage and other agreements, but that in most instances "I don't think
there is going to be adverse reaction to this."

THE ANTIPOLLUTION CAMPAIGN President Nixon will
propose in his State of the Union message tomorrow emphasizes
user taxes, tax incentives and research rather than expanded
government outlays or enforcement authority.
In addition, the President will propose tax credits to stimulate
industry's own actions against pollution as well as user taxes to pay
for clean-up, high administrative sources say.
This "small budget" approach is expected to apply completely
to air and solid waste clean-up efforts. Some new federal money
is likely to be asked for water pollution efforts, the sources said.

DEFENSE ATTORNEYS CHARGED yesterday that no Army
Court could give Lt. William L. Calley Jr. a fair trial because the
commander-in-chief, President Nixon, made the decision to charge
him with mass murder at My Lai.
The decision came down through the chain of high command and
ultimately was carried out at Ft. Benning, attorney George Latimer
assertedhat a pretrial hearing on defense motions. He sought dismissal
of the charges.
The trial judge-Lt. Col. Reid W. Kennedy-did not act on the!
motion itself. He adjourned the hearing until Feb.9 when he will take
more evidence on the "command control" issue.
In response to a defense motion the court dropped two specifica-
tions in the murder charge against Calley, reducing the number
of killings from 109 to 102.
WASHINGTON (1P) -The Su-
preme Court, over the bitter dis-
sent of its two liberal elders, up-
held yesterday federal law that
makes possession of heroin suf-
ficient evidence of illegal importa-
tion of the drug from abroad.
Justice Byron R. White deliver-
ed the 6-2 decision.
Justices Hugo L. Black and Wil-
lim O. Douglas charged the major-
ity with weakening at least eight
Bill of Rights guarantees. They
stressed, particularly, that the de-
cision alleviate the ,government's
task of having to prove guilt at
The two holdover New Deal
justices, lauding their colleagues,
said in Black's words: "Few if any
decisions of this court have done
more than this one today to under-
cut and destroy the due process
safeguards the federal Bill of
Rights specifically provides to pro-I
tect defendants charged with
crime in United States courts."
Black, who will be 84 next
month and has been on the court
since 1937, wrote:
"Our Constitution was not writ-
ten in the sands to be washed
away by each wave of new judges
blown in by each successive polit-
ical wind which brings new polit-
ical administrations into tem-
"Rather, our Constitution was
fashioned to perpetuate liberty
and justice by marking clear and
explicit, constitutional boundaries
The decision upheld the convic-
tion of James Turner of Wee-
hawken, N.J., on charges of two
federal narcotics law violations-
receiving unlawfully imported
heroin and purchase of illegally
imported heroin. His 10-year
prison sentence stands.
White, in the majority opinion,
said the jury was wholly justified
in concluding that possession of
heroin is equivalent to possessing
imported heroin. The r e a s o n,
White said, is that only tiny
amounts of heroin are produced
domestically, if any is produced
donestically at all.
"To possess heroin is to possess
imported heroin," the former
deputy attorney general said.
White said people in Turner's
"class" are well aware of the facts
concerning heroin. "We therefore
have little doubt that the inference
of knowledge from the fact of pos-
sessing smuggled heroin is a
sound one," he said.

The board, consisting of Gov.

"We can have complete resis-

RADIC AL FILM SERIES THiE BALCONY
Directed by: JOSEPH STRICK
Starring: Shelly Winters, Peter Falk, Ruby Dee, Lee Grant
In this fantastic film based on Jean Genet's brilliant Theatre of the Absurd, a milk-
man becomes a general; and a gas-meter reader becomes a bishop as they, among
others, escape from the falseness of life into the falseness of their dreams. With the
action set against the background of a revolution, D e a t h, the one ultimate
reality, is the only act not permitted in THE BALCONY, where each man's dream
comes true for a time-and a price. Even the chief of police and the rebel leader-
have their fantasies: only Irma, the madam of this unusual brothel, is free from
self-deception. When she bids us return to our homes to resume our lives where
everything is even falser than what we have seen in her house of illusion, you'll
think about it ...
