WOMAN'S FINAL

news briefs
by The Associated Press
THE SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE unanimously ap-
proved President Nixon's nomination of Richard Kleindienst to be
Attorney General. The vote opens the way for final Senate
confirmation next week.
Although voting for approval, Sen: Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.),
said that he will file a separate statement setting forth his disagree-
ments with certain policies supported by Kleindienst.
Kleindienst if confirmed will succeed Atty. Gen. John Mitchell
who resigned to head Nixon's re-election campaign. The committee
also approved the nomination of L. Patrick Gray III to succeed
Kliendienst as deputy attorney general.
THE PAY BOARD yesterday amended its rules to allow
higher fringe benefits to workers. The total increases to employes
could reach 6.2 per cent and higher in some cases.

stage walkou
at Paris talks
PARIS (A -- The Communist delegations to the Vietnam
peace conference walked out of the talks yesterday to pro-
test the escalation of the U.S. air war last week.
The North Vietnamese and Viet Cong delegations said
they would return next Thursday, March 2. But the U.S. and
South Vietnamese delegations-who called off last Thurs-
day's meeting-said they would decide later whether they
would meet next week.
It was the first time in the three-year history of the
talks that a delegation had walked out after. a session start-

The board also ruled that raises under the incentive programs,
designed to promote increased productivity, will be exempt from the
general standard limiting new wage increases to 5.5 per cent.

A MASS STAY OF EXECUTIONS has been ordered by
Florida Gov. Ruebin Askew. The action temporarily saves 91
prisoners on Florida's Death Row.
Askew, under Florida law, cannot commute the death sentences
without the consent of three members of the Pardon Board. Reprieves
cannot be issued more than 60 days after the death warrants have
been signed. The governor,, however, has unlimited authority to
establish moratoriums, according to his legal adviser.
CURBING HEROIN TRAFFIC by halting the growing of
opium poppies around the world was called unrealistic by federal
aide Myles Ambrose, who considered it "one of those magic-{
wand statements born of ignorance."j
The statement was a response to Police Commissioner Patrick
Murphy who told the National Commission on Marijuana and Drug
Abuse that the government should be "damming or diverting" the
floodtide of poppy fields from the Orient.
UNSCRUPULOUS PRIVATE CEMETERIES who are offering
free graves to veterans as part of expensive burial packages, us-
ually charge more in the long run, according to a report released
today to a Senate committee.
The veteran who signs the agreement usually pays " increased
prices for other items and services, and is often persuaded to buy
costly family plots, the report said.
The findings were presented to the Veterans Affairs CommitteeE
by a group of five George Washington University law students who
call themselves "The Dead Giveaway".
SEX-RELATED HORMONES, genetically or accidentally in
excess during pre-natal life, may increase significantly the intelli-
gence of a child, according to medical studies performed by Dr.
John Money.
Money said the still inconclusive findings, if confirmed by
further research, could help explain why some men and women
are mentally superior to others and why others are born mentally
deficient.
"Whereas in an ordinary population 2.2 per cent have an IQ
of 130 or higher, 12.9 per cent of this group fell into this range,"
according to Money, who also reported 60.1 per cent had an IQ
of 110 and above as compared to 25 per cent in the ordinary
population.

Xuan Thuy, leader of the
said in yesterday's session:
"The escalation of the air war
during recent days has further
laid bare the fallacious character
of the Nixon administration's
talks of peace and its obstinate
and bellicose attitude."
Conference sources saw the
walkout as a demonstration of
North Vietnam's independence to-
ward any bargaining over the
Vietnam war that might take
place between President Nixon
and Premier Chou En-lai in
China.
North Vietnamese spokesman
Nguyen Thanh Le bitterly assail-
ed Nixon's dinner toast in Peking
Monday, saying his talk of peace
"was remarkable by its hypoc-
risy." If Nixon wants peace in
Vietnam, Le said, "he must re-
spond positively to our peace pro-
posals here in Paris."
Le recalled that the President
said he was thinking of "all the
children in the world" and won-
dered "what legacy" will be left
to them. The spokesman said
Nixon has "given them a present
of seven million tons of bombs."

North Vietnamese delegation,
Court bears
wiretapping
arguments
WASHINGTON (R) - The U.S.
Supreme Court heard arguments
yesterday from both supporters
and opponents of government
electronic eavesdropping of do-
mestic groups without prior court
approval.
Justice Department lawyer Ro-
bert Mardian, defending govern-
ment policy, said that the gov-
ernment must use electronic sur-
veillance if it is to stay informed
of its enemy's activities.
"The constitution is not a sui-
cide pact,'-' he said. "The Presi-
dent can't wait until the nation is
facing armed insurrection before
he starts to gather counter intelli-
gence."
Attorney Arthur Kinoy, repre-
senting those seeking to outlaw
the surveillance, claimed that "the
power which the attorney genet-
al seeks here would legitimize a
wide-spread dragnet of political
opposition."
Kinoy said that the Justice De-
partment's position would "erase
the Fourth Amendment from the
domestic life of this country" and
lead to a "stifling of the political
freedoms guaranteed by the First
Amendment."
The case before the high court
involves government wiretapping
of a conversation involving Law-
rence "Pun" Plamondon, a White
Panther accused of bombing a
Central Intelligence Agency office
