gains dramat

ALBANY, N. Y. (M ) - Gov. Nel-
son A. Rockefeller chose upstate
Republican Congressman Charles
E. Goodell yesterday to fill t h e
U.S. Senate seat of the slain Rob-
ert F. Kennedy, a Democrat.
Goodall, who at 42 -will be ,the
youngest Republican Senator, ap
peared with Rockefeller at a news
conference and said the governor'
had handed him "a somber re-
sponsibility."
In announcing his decision,
Rockefeller said the choice had
b e e n "enormously difficult."
* Rockefellew explained that he had
sought to maintaina balance be-
tween "a sensitive awareness of
the feelings of the Kennedy fam-
fly"and the demands of the of-
fice. *
SHARES CONCERNS'
The Governor pictured Goodell
as sharing the late Sen. Kennedy's
concern, for the problems of the
cities, civil rights, revenue-sharing

between the federal and state gov-
ernments, foreign aid, the war on
crime, and the Vietnam war.
Under questioning by newsmen,
Goodell said private enterprise'
must help solve urban problems.
OPPOSES WAR
On the Vietnam war, he said:
"It is my steadfast conviction that
we should not be engaged in a
land war 10,000 miles away."
Sen. Kennedy, the man he re-
places as senator, was one of the
nation's severest critics of the
Vietnam war. Goodell has suggest-
ed a de-Americanization of the
war by bringing about a greater
involvement of allies f r o m the
Southeast Asia area and the South
Vietnamese themselves.
He hasn't taken a public posi-
tion,'on the question of bombing.
SUPPORTS FORTAS
Questioned on other matters in-
pending or now before Congress,
Goodell said he would support the
confirmation of Justice Abe For-.
tas for the post of chief justice of
the United States.
Goodell will be sworn in tomor-
row in Washington. The term runs
until January, 1971.

CITES ILLEGAL SEIZURE:

U S says no Pueblo apology.

I

WASHINGTON (P) - Secretary
of State Dean. Rusk indicated
yesterday that North Korea is de-
manding not only an apology but
a promise that U.S. ships will stay
out of the Sea of Japan as the
,price for 'release of the USS,
Pueblo and its crew.

WANT TO STOP FEELING
SORRY FOR YOURSELF?;
The University of Michigan Tutorial Project is sponsor-
ing a program at the Mental Halfway House. WE NEED;
YOU. People are needed to spend one evening a week
tutoring and socializing with emotionally disturbed
women from ages 17 to 25 who have no social contacts
outside their home. For information call Susan Mintz,
761-7166.

Rusk made the disclosure at
about the same time the State
Department, in a carefully con-
sidered statement, declared the
seizure of the Navy intelligence
ship seven months ago was an l-s
legal act which does not call for
an apology,
There have been repeated re-
ports that the United S t a te s
planned to apologize. The state-
ment was in response to these.-
However, Rusk shed a little
more information on the negotia-
tions, which have been stalemated:
since last January.
State Department officials re-
lated his remarks to North Ko-
rea 's repeated and insistent de-

mands for three actions by the
United States. They are.
1. An admission that the
Pueblo was guilty of violating
North Korea's territorial aters;
2. An apology;
3. And/ a promise that there
would be no. violations in the fu-
ture.
Widely scattered reports and
broadcasts from North'"Korea it-
self had built up expectations over
the weekend that the Pueblo
might be released in connection
with the 20th anniversary of
North Korea's existence as a Com-
munist state.

ATLANTA, Ga. ( P) - Striking
garbage workers were ordered
back to work by a state court yes-
terday after a dramatic move of
support by civil rights leaders and
a union official-who were arrested
for blocking a garbage truck.
"Restraining orders don't col-
lect trash,' said Morton Shapiro,;
negotiator for American Federa-
tion of State, County and Muni-
cipal Employes Union.
RESTRAINING ORDER
He commented at a news con-
ference after Superior Court
Judge Luther Alverson granted
a city request for an order re-
straining workers "from failing to
report for duty," or preventing
other employes from doing so.
"I intend to be on the picket
line Wednesday morning," said
Shapiro, freed from jail on $100
bond after taking part in an early
morning demonstration.
ABERNATHY SUPPORTS
Shapiro went to jail briefly
with the Rev. Ralph David Aber-
nathy, president of Southern
Christian Leadership Conference
SCL'C. Abernathy is successor to
,ir. Martin Luther ing, Jr., who
was ,assassinated last April 4 dur-
ing a similar garbage strike he
was supporting at Memphis, Tenn.
King's brother, the Rev. A. D.
King, also was arrested.
Several other SCLC officials
were arrested with Shapiro and
Abernathy when they joined a
group of striking Negro garbage'
workers in a .sit-down to block a
truck at the Hill street sanitation
substation. They were charged
with blocking a driveway.
Eighty persons were arrested1
during the protest activities of the
strike that began Sept. 3.
PAY DEMANDS
Workers are ,demanding $2.50
an hour minimum pay. The mini-
mum now ranges from $1.66 to
$2.05 an hour,: with 5-year tops
from $2.05 to $2.53.
Most of the nearly 1,000 work-

jected.
