PRESIDENT NIXON is considering a constitutional amend-
ment to slow court-ordered busing as a. "live" alternative in his
search to check widespread opposition to recent court decisions.
A senior White House official reported yesterday that Nixon is
- "very strongly interested" in such an amendment.
Last week Vice President Agnew and HEW Secretary Richardson
both expressed concern over using a constitutional amendment to
counter the courts.

THE FIRST OF OVER 6 MILLION RECALL LETTERS went
out yesterday to owners of Chevrolets, Camaros and Chevy II's
made during the 1965 through 1969 model years. The Chevrolet
Motor Division of General Motors Corporation will replace the
engine mounts in an operation the company claims will cost
more than $30 million.
These models, when supplied with V-8 engines, are built with
faulty engine mounts which may allow the block to twist loose, caus-
ing loss of power steering and power brakes and a jammed accelerat-
or.
General Motors announced the recall last December after the'
National Highway Trafic Safety Administration considered ordering
the recalls itself.

WASHINGTON - R a d io
Free Europe and Radio Liber-
ty, funded for the past 20
years by the Central Intelli-
gence Agency (CIA), lose their
government support today.
Speaking to the Senate- Thurs-
day, Sen. J. William Fulbright
chairman of the Foreign Rela-
tions Committee, called the radio
stations "cold war relics".
Since their founding the CIA has
provided the two American-run
stations with about a half million
dollars.
Radio Free Europe, founded in
1950, broadcasts to Bu1g a r i a,
Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Poland
and Rumania. Radio Liberty was
founded in 1951 and broadcasts
only to the Soviet Union.
CIA funding for the stations,
amounting to about $36 million an-
nually, came to an end last year.
At that time the Nixon Adminis-
tration favored keeping the. sta-
tions alive by direct congressional
funding. However, Fulbright man-
aged to restrict financing to.one
year.
Even if the stations should re-
ceive a proposed-extension of sup-
port until June 30, prospects for
their future survival look very
dim.
Sen. Hugh Scott (R-Pa.), a sup-
porter of the stations, said the Ad-
ministration was "most concerned"
that they receive appropriations
for continuation.

TWO BLACK MEN went on trial again yesterday in Marianna,
Fla., nearly nine years after they were sentenced to death for the
slaying of two white service station attendants.
Freddie Pitts and Wilbert Lee were sentenced to die after they'
confessed and pleaded guilty to the murder. The sentence was im-
posed during a trial held behind locked doors.
Pitts and Lee later repudiated a confession of the slayings, con-'
tendinj they were held incommunicado and were brutalized by police.'
The Florida Supreme Court overturned the convictions last April
after a "confession of error" by state Atty. Gen. Robert Shevin.
Last month the defense attorneys were given a transcript in
which key witness Willie Mae Lee said she identified Pitts and Lee:
as the killers because she was afraild of the police.

Parents plan action to

fight Child
SAN DIEGO, Calif. (P) - A
group of worried parents has
launched a campaign to bring
home their sons and daughters
who have joined the fundamen-
talist Children of God.
"We're convinced they're vic-
tims of some form of mind
manipulation, or why else their
sudden change of behavior,
wanting to destroy our institu-
tions, not knowing or wanting
us?" says retired Navy Lt.
Cmdr. William Rambur, one of
100 parents who have organized.
During its first . convention
here last w'eekend, the Parents
Committee to Free Our So n s
and Daughters made plans to
circulate petitions to b r i n g
public pressure on the Bible sect.
Most members of the radical
religious group are in their late
teens and early 20s and forsake
all worldly possesion to follow
Jesus.
It has been reported that a
sizeable number of the Children
of, God were recruited -in Ann
Arbor and Detroit.
Officials of the Children of
God were not available for

comment on the parents commit-
tee. However, in the past sect'
leaders have denied charges
that they hold members against
their wills.
Some members of the sect.'
were sent home last Thanksgiv

leaders described as an effort
to counter parents' charges
against Ce group.
Six former Children of Gd
related their experiences to par-
ents at the San Diego meeting
and one- of them, Linda Train,
said that about 4W0 of the young
people who returned to their
homes last Thanksgiving did not
go back to Children of God
colonies. Prior to that time, the
sect's membership was estimat-
ed at 2,000.
Train, a New York City book-
keeper, said those , still w i t h
the group may not be able- to
think for themselves.
'When I was a member of the
Children of God, I would feel one
way but when I opened my
mouth to speak, the opposite
-meaning would come out," Train
said.

went on immediate alert in Bel-
fast in case the bombings should
herald a return to the IRA's of-
fensive against the capital.
The deaths of the four in the
car brought Northern Ireland's
2% -year toll of religious-poliitcal
violence to 251 dead, 45 of them
this year alone.
