By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Rep. Edith
Green (D-Ore.) said yesterday the
deputy director of an antipoverty
program is also on the board of a
private firm with a $1 million
contract with the Office of Eco-
nomic Opportunity.
She said In a House speech that
Richard Frost, a $1,000-a-month'
official with an Upward Bound
project in Oregon, also serves as a
$100-a-day consultant to Educa-
tional Associates, whith she said
has a contract, with the OEO to
review applications for Upward
Bound grants.
mTpward Bound is a program ad-
ministered by the OEO aimed at
helping potential high school drop-
outs remain in school and go on
to higher learning.
She said Frost, former director
of Upward Bound, resigned that
position on Aug. 1, 1967 and be-
came a member of the advisory
board of educational associates,

which had received an OEO con-
tract a month earlier.
Educational Associates was
formed in June, 1967, and was
given a $789,000 contract by OEOD
a month later, Mrs. Green said.
Subsequent additions within the
next three weeks raised the total
of the contract to $1.3 million, she
said. She pointed out that Educa-
tional -Associates has no other
source of revenue.
Although resigning as national
director of Upward Bound, Frost
became deputy director of an Up-
ward Bound program in a prison
in Oregon, said Mrs. Green, and
is still on the payroll at approxi-
mately $1,000 a month.
Newark
police
NEWARK -- An Essex County
grand jury yesterday indicted
Newark Police Director Dominick
A. Spina on a charge of "willfully
refusing" to crack down on illegal
gambling operations of which he
was aware.
The indictment charged Spina
with having knowledge of wide-
spread violations of state law re-
garding "bookmaking and pool
selling, keeping a gambling resort
and lottery operations."
As soon as the indictment was
handed up to Judge Walter H.
Conklin, an assistant prosecutor

asked that a warrant not be issued
for Spina's arrest, but that he be
notified of his indictment by
mail.
The judge granted the request.
The grand jury was empanelled
May 25 to investigate allegations
made in the Governor's Select
Commision on Civil Disorders.

Cut overseas
assistence aid
WASHINGTON - The Senate
F o r e i g n Relations Committee
sliced another $25 million from
President Johnson's foreign-aid
request yesterday and sent a
$1.24-billion recommendation to
the floor.
The new cut was made in mili-
tary aid, which the committee set
at $365 million. Johnson sought
nearly $420 million for such aid.
Johnson originally requested a
$2.9-billion authorization for the
overseas assistance program in
the current fiscal year. It has been
slashed repeatedly in its progress.
through Congress.
Those voting against it, he said,
included Chairman J. W. Ful-
bright, campaigning for a re-elec-
tion in Arkansas. Fulbright voted
by proxy.
Other opponents were Sen.
Wayne Morse, (D-Ore.), Frank
Church, (D-Idaho), and John J.
Williams, (R-Del.).

LAGOS, Nigeria (P) - A fed-
eral spokesman yesterday called'
"ridiculous" a report from Niger
that, Nigerian and Biafran dele-
gates had agreed on a mercy route
across northern Biafra to aid
starving civil war refugees.
The reports from Niamey, Ni-
ger's capital, said the negotiators
had agreed on a 10-mile corridor
extending from Enugu, the capi-
tal of secessionist Biafra captured
by federal troops, to Ogoja, 93
miles east.
The spokesman pointed out that
Ogoja is practically inaccessible,
has long been under federal con-
trol, atnd any food sent there
would be farther away from starv-
ing Biafrans than at Enugu.
CITIES CONFUSED
He thought informants in Nia-
mey may have confused -Ogoja
with Awgu, 33 miles south of Enu-
gu. The federal government has
offered to open a mercy, corridor
from Enugu to Awgu, the point of
deepest penetration from the
north by federal troops.
Federal officials are also con-
cerned that relief attempts to get
food to the starving refugees in
Biafra might be used to slip arms
to the rebels as well.
"I believe all practical means
should be employed for relief,"
said Foreign Minister Okoi Arikpo
on his return from the Soviet Un-
ion and Poland. "But we are not
going to allow the opportunity for
Ojukwu to import more arms."
REBEL LEADER
He was referring to Lt. Col.
Odumegwu Ojukwu, who has led
Biafra in its '14-month-old revolt
from Nigeria..,
In other events concerning Bi-
afra and Nigeria, it was acknowl-
edged for the first time yesterday
that the United States has main-
tained "informal contact in a
number of places" with Biafran
representatives. The United States
does not recognize Biafra and had
denied having any dealings with
them up to now.
Another ipeflection of Nigerian
federal suspicion came out of a
meeting yesterday tetween Maj.
Gen. Yakubu Gowon, head of the
Nigerian military government, and
Dr. August Lindt of Switzerland,
chief executive coordinator in Ni-

geria of the International Com-
mittee of the Red Cross.
The federal ministry of infor-
mation said Gowon warned Lindt
that his government ,would not
tolerate political interference in
the internal affairs of Nigeria by
relief organizations.
In remarks to reporters at the
airport, Arikpo was particularly
critical of Caritas, the Roman
Catholic charity organization that
has been flying relief supplies into
Biafra. Caritas officials hatee said
some of. their planes ,have been
fired on by federal ground forces.
Nigeria has threatened to shoot
down' relief planes.
Foresee Viet
offensive.,
in highlands
SAIGON (P) - A North Viet-
namese buildup in a new area of
the central highlands alerted U.S.
officials yesterday, to the possibil-
ity that the next enemy blow may
be struck there.
In response to the threat, U.S.
B52s, the heavyweights of the Air
Force, struck six times Wednesday
and' early yesterday in the area
north of Ban Me Thuot, capital
of Darlac Province.
"If there's going to be any ac-
tion, it looks now like it will be in
Darlac Province," a senior' U.S.
officer said.
The highlands have lbeen rela-
tively quiet with no major fight-
ing since the battle of Dak To last
November.
Ban Me Thuot is about 110
miles south of the area of Kon-
tum, hitherto considered the most
likely point for an enemy drive
designed to cut South Vietnam
in two.
But intelligence reports say the
North Vietnamese in the Kontum
area near the borders of Cambo-
dia, Laos and South Vietnam have
been on the move to the south.
There was no estimate of , he
size of the force moving into Dar-
lac Province.
