GOV. GEORGE WALLACE of Alabama announced yester-
day that he is a candidate for the Democratic presidential nom-
ination in order to force other Democrats to "straighten up and
fly right" and to scare President Nixon into stopping school
Wallace made the formal announcement at the state capital
in Tallahassee, Fla., and in doing so became the 12th candidate to
enter that state's Democratic primary.
In his speech, Wallace stated that he was a serious contender for
the nomination, but he did not rule out the possibility if defeated.
of running again as a third party candidate.'
Wallace was the presidential standard-bearer of the American
Independent Party in the 1968 election and garnered some 13.5 per
Gent of the total vote. The issue of busing which figured so prom-
inently in that campaign was also the major theme of Wallace's ad-
dress yesterday.
THREE BLACK PANTHERS were sentenced to prison terms
of one to five years yesterday on weapons conspiracy convictions
stemming from a shootout with police at the L.A. Panther head-
quarters two years ago.
Six other members of the Panther party, also convicted of con-
spiracy to possess illegal weapons, were placed on three years pro-
bation. Two Panthers, Jackie Johnson and Isiah Houston, had been
acquitted on Dec. 23.
In the stormy seven month trial, the prosecution claimed the.
Panthers plotted to kill policemen, stockpiling weapons for that
The defense maintained that the police had harassed Panthers,
trying to provoke a bloody confrontation. Six policemen and three
Panthers were wounded in the gun battle at Panther headquarters
Dec. 8, 1969.
SHEIK MUJIBUR RAHMAN, now prime minister of Bangla-
desh, yesterday assumed Cabinet responsibility for the new na-
tion's defense and internal affairs, as well as the posts of min-
ister of information and Cabinet affairs.
Aside from naming himself to four additional Cabinet posts-
including minister of defense and home affairs --Mujib only named
one minister who is not among the men who served in the Cabinet
pf the Bangladesh government in exile.
He is Dr. Kamarl Hussain, 35, who was jailed with Mujib in West
Pakistan during the East Pakistani uprising since last March.
Meanwhile, Pres. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto of Pakistan insisted at a
news conference that links still are possible between West Pakistan
and Bangladesh, despite Mujib's recent statement to the contrary.
Mitchell announced yesterday a $160 million program to fight
crime in eight cities over the next three years.
"There will be an across-the-board attack on street crimes and
ourglaries, the kinds of crimes that are the most prevalent and the
mnost feared," Agnew told a news conference also attended by mayors:
and governors of the cities and states affected.
The money will be distributed in a non-categorized fashion, some-
what similar to'President Nixon's proposal for revenue-sharing, to
Newark, Baltimore, Atlanta, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, St. Louis,
and Portland, Ore.

Wallace to seek presidency

Military coup ousts
Ghana government

next year, both of which ex-
ceed the board's own 5.5 per
cent wage guideline.
The board rejected the 12 per
cent raise Jan. 6, saying it was
inconsistent with the board's
standards. Labor members were
outvoted then by a solid front of
public and business members, first
9-5, then 9-0, with labor abstain-
Yesterday's plan was adopted
8-2, with the five labor members
abstaining and two business mem-
bers in the minority. Chairman
George Boldt, a public member;
who twice abstained last week,
cast his vote this time to make
the eight-man majority.
The board said it would make
an exception to the 5.5 rule for
the aerospace workers because of
1968 agreements by unions and
management to provide a cost of
living catch-up this year. .
It was not immediately clear
whether the leadership of the two
unions would renegotiate their re-.
jected contracts to conform with
the Pay Board's plan, or~ whether.
they would -make good on their
promise to sue the Pay Board for
the full 12 per cent raise, or both.
A spokesman for the machinists,
however, said union president
Floyd Smith intends to press the
promised lawsuit, which has not
yet been filed.
Meanwhile, in other board ac-
tion, procedures under which all
raises lost during the 90-day wage
freeze will be :paid, unless specif-
ically stopped by the board itself,
were approved, a source said.
The vote was 14-0, with chair-
man George Boldt abstaining.
Adoption of the regulations re-
moves a major obstacle holding up
back pay estimated as high as $1.5

8% aerospace industry wage
hike approved by Pay Board
WAS1INGTON LIP - The Pay Board yesterday by a scant
margin approved an eight per cent wage increase for aero-
space workers, after rejecting last week a bid for a full 12
per cent pay raise.
The board formula, if the unions accept it, means that
the 100,000 aerospace workers will receive roughly $340 less
.this year than they would have under the rejected 12 per
" cent raise.
The new plan also would mean approval by the board of
raises of eight per cent this year and seven per cent, plus a
cost of living adjustment,

ACCRA, Ghana (P) - Junior
army officers o v e r t u r n e d
Ghana's two year old civilian
government yesterday while the
prime minister was abroad for
medical care.
The rebel officers accused
Prime Minister Kofi Busia, 58,
of mismanaging the West Afri-
can nation's long-troubled econ-
omy. Busia, in London, called
the coup "selfish and senseless"
and predicted the people of
Ghana would rise against it.
"I know the vast majority of
Ghanaians appreciate what we
are doing and that my govern-
ment has their full support and
loyalty . . ." Busia said. "I have
no doubt that the regions will
not back this deliberate act of
a small section of the army bas-
ed in Accra."
In Accra, the capital, bus-
loads of cheering workers rode
through the street to shout
support for the revolt, led by

Lt. Col. I.K. Acheampong, 40.
There was no sign of bloodshed.
The Accra airport closed
down and reopened within a few
hours of the coup announce-
ment. Normal communications
channels were severed but the
city seemed normal, with down-
town streets crowded as usual.
There was no way to deter-
mine, however, whether the
coup was greeted similarly in
other parts of the country or
whether all other army units
were behind Acheampong. He
commands the largest army unit
in the Accra area.
The rebel officers announced
they had suspended the consti-
tution and banned political par-
ties. They said this nation of
nine million will be ruled by
what they called a national
redemption council of army of-
ficers, tribal chiefs, union lead-
ers, members of the Christian
and Moslem council and the the
Ghana Assembly of Women.

Troops eut
in Vietnam
by 70,000
WASHINGTON (JP) - President
Nixon announced yesterday that
70,000 more American troops will
be brought home from Vietnam
before May, reducing the . S.
military force there to the smal-
lest total in nearly seven years.
The new withdrawal order, step-
ping up the pace lightly, will,
bring the American commitment
in Vietnam down to 69,000 men on
May 1-a drop of 474,000 from
the peak shortly after Nixon took
office in early 1969.
Following Nixon's brief an-
nouncement, Secretary of Defense
Melvin Laird fired what sounded
like the opening volley of the
President's re-election campaign
with a sharp shot at Democratic
White House hopefuls.
"Strangely enough, some of
those individuals that are going
around the country today criticiz-
ing the program to withdraw
Americans from Vietnam were si-
lent in 1968 and before when we
were on the escalator going up, up,
and up," Laird said.
"Now when we are going
down, down, down, it seems they
have changed this position and
are critical of the President and
the program . . . to withdraw
Americans from Southeast Asia
and South Vietnam."
Laird named no one specifically,
but it was obvious he was refer-
ring to Sen. Edmund Muskie (D-
Me.), currently rated the Demo-
cratic front-runner, and other
Democratic contenders who have
urged that Nixon set a specific
withdrawal date and pull out all
