March to

WASHINGTON () - Thous-
ands of' demonstrators, carrying
placards, Bibles, and flags, march-
ed down Pennsylvania Avenue
yesterday in a "March for Vic-
tory" in a response to last fall's
anti-war demonstrations.
A park police official estimated
the crowd at 40,000 midway in the
march, but Washington Police
Chief Jerry Wilson later put the
figure at 10,000 to 15,000.
Rev. Carl McIntire, who led'
the march, claimed 50,000 took

As the march neared the rally-

Rarick said. "The enemy has

Messages of congratulations
were read from Sens. Strom Thur-

was read from Mayor Henry Loeb
of Memphis, Tenn., who said he
had proclaimed Saturday "Peace

In tribute to King
A striking sanitation worker kneels at the grave of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., in honor of the
second anniversary of King's death. King was killed two years ago in Memphis, Tenn. while sup-
porting a sanitation worker's strike here. The picket sign "I am a man" were first used in the
Memphis strike. See The News Today.

AMERICAN SOURCES released details yesterday of the Viet
Cong takeover of South Vietnamese Fire Base Schroeder, one of
the worst setbacks of the Vietnamese army in months.
The base, one of the first U.S. Army bases to be handed over to
the South Vietnamese army, was invaded by Viet Cong forces last
Wednesday, but the extent of the damage was not made known until
this weekend.
Saigon authorities said 24 soldiers and 12 of the soldiers' de-
pendents were killed, and more than 60 persons were wounded. The
one American infantry captain left at the base was also killed. Numer-
ous trucks and artillery pieces were destroyed.
U.S. advisors say they fear the action represents the beginning
of attempts by the Viet Cong to undermine trust in the South Viet-
namese army.
Schroeder was a fire base in the northern Mekong Delta estab-
lished by the U.S. Army in 1967. It was handed over to the Vietnamese
in August, 1969, when some of the first U.S. troops we're sent home.

THE SENATE will vote tomorrow on a proposal to send the
nomination of G. Harrold Carswell for the Supreme Court back
to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
If the recommittal vote fails, the Senate will vote on the con-
troversial nomination Wednesday. The outcome of the vote is uncer-
tain, though. the Republican leadership maintains it counts enough
votes to defeat the recommittal motion.
Critics of the nomination say Carswell is a mediocre judge with
an anti-civil rights bias. Nixon has responded with an endorsement
of the nomination by several federal judges.
ready to strike yesterday as a result of a breakoff in negotiations
between truck operators and union representatives.
The Chicago drivers are asking for a $1.70 an hour pay hike over
three years and 12 more a week in pay benefits, while union manage-
ment is sticking to its proposed 71-cent-an-hour increase over 39
A tentative national truckers agreement reached last Thursday
offers a $1.10 increase. A mail vote will determine whether union
members accept the proposal.
The Chicago talks are separate from the national negotiations,
and officials of Chicago unions criticized the settlement.
Talks between the Chicago drivers and union management ended
abruptly Tuesday after a brief session. Since then both sides have
met with federal mediators.
A plea Friday by Frank E. Fitssimmons, acting national Teamsters
president, asking the Chicago unions not to strike and accept the
national settlement had little effect on the truckers. A union official
said a decision will probably be made tomorrow on whether the strike
is to be called.

THE REV. MARTIN LUTHER KING SR. led a silent prayer

King, Jr., on the second anniversary of the younger King's as-
Several hundred persons were present at the ceremony, most of
them striking sanitation workers, their families and supporters. The
strikers were to march downtown after a speech by the Rev. Ralph
David Abernathy, King's successor as head of the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference.
No official ceremonies were scheduled in Atlanta, King's birth-
In Memphis, where King was slain on April 4, 1968, civil rights
leaders planned a mass march as "a rededication to the ideals of
Dr. King and a commitment to the principles of nonviolence."

THE APOLLO 13 ASTRONAUTS rehearsed yesterday for
their trip to the moon as the launch team prepared to start the
countdown for man's third lunar landing expedition.
The countdown starts at 10 p.m. EST today, with a liftoff of
the Saturn 5 rocket planned for 2:13 p.m. next Saturday.
The second Apollo 13 moon walk, slated to last four to five hours
April 16, will be a long field trip in one of the moon's most rugged
areas, the highlands of Fra Mauro on the eastern edge of the Ocean
of Storms.

eral judge has ruled that the gov-
ernment must prove "overriding
national interests" are at stake
before it can require a reporter
to disclose "confidential associa-
tions" to a grand jury investigat-
ing the Black Panthers.
In making the ruling Friday,
Judge Afonso J. Zirpoli said,
however, that a reporter who was
subpeoned to appear before the
jury, Earl Caldwell of the New
York Times, must appear before
the grand jury as a "public duty
which every person within t h e
jurisdiction of the government is
bound to perform."
Zirpoli said the 21/2-hour hear-
ing in U.S. District Court on mo-
tions to quash t w o subpoenas
served on Caldwell presented "is-
sues that go to the very core of
the First Amendment."
At the beginning of the hearing,
government attorneys agreed with
Zirpoli's suggestion that they
withdraw a subpoena issued in
February requiring that Caldwell
appear with notes and recordings
of interviews with Black Panther
le=ders. A later subpoena ordered
only that the black reporter ap-
pear for questioning.
But Zirpoli said Caldwell "need
n o t reveal confidential associa-
tions that impringe upon the ef-
fective exercise of the First
Amendment right to gather news

for dissemination to the public
through the press . . . until such
time as a compelling and over-
riding national interest which
cannot be alternatively served has
been established to the satisfac-
tion of the court."
Judge Zirpoli said Caldwell was
entitled to a protective order
spelling out his right to .keep si-
lent on confidential information.,
Zirpoli asked attorneys for Cald-
well and the Times to draft an
order for the judge's approval that
carried out the effect of his de-

U.S. Atty. James Browning Jr.
said the government has not yet
decided whether to appeal to
higher courts. That decision would
be made by the solicitor general,
he said.
Attorneys for Caldwell and The
Times said they also will study
the feasibility of an appeal.
In New York, A. M. Rosenthal,
Times managing editor, said
Caldwell told him by phone that
"he feels very happy about the
whole thing. He feels the decision
is a good one and, I'm sure, so
do we."

may well be determinative of the
scope of the journalist's privilege
in sensitive areas of freedom of

heretofore fully explored and de-
cided by the Supreme Court of the
United States."
Zirpoli continued: "When the
exercise of the grand jury power
of testimonial compulsion, so nec-
essary to the effective functioning
of the court, may impringe on or
repress First Amendment rights
of freedom of speech, press and
association, such power shall not
be exercised until there has been
