CHIEF JUSTICE WARREN BURGER, said last night the
lack of educational opportunities is one of the greatest failures
of the American penal system.
Burger, in a speech before the National Conference on Correc-
tions, called for new sentencing techniques which would allow in-
mates to "learn their way" out of prison.
Burger criticized the inadequate educational programs of most
prisons, citing the high percentage of prisoners who cannot read or
write.
SEN. JOIkN TUNNEY (D-Calif.), one of the state's most
powerful politicians, plans to make a public endorsement of Sen.
Edmund Muskie (D-Maine), for President in a news conference
today, according to an announcement by aides.
Tunney, as a close friend and ally of Sen. Edward Kennedy
(D-Mass.), may indicate by his decision that Kennedy is definite
about his plans not to run in the 1972 presidential campaign.
THE SUPREME COURT, at the government's urging, agreed I
yesterday to decide the constitutionality of the Gun Control Act
of 1968.
A U.S. Circuit Court in Denver had previously ruled that the
act's inspection provisions violate the Fourth Amendment because
they allow Internal Revenue Service agents to inspect the shops ofI
gun dealers without having first obtained a search warrant.
TEN EUROPEAN NATO ALLIES announced a billion-dollar
increase, nearly six per cent, in military spending for 1972 to
help ease the U.S. burden of defense.
The allies are attempting by their action to help the U.S. in
times of economic problems and to help President Nixon resist
Congressional pressure for a reduction of US. troop strength in
Europe.
The allies this year have been spending about $18 billion on
defense compared with a total U.S. military budget of around $80
billion.

WASHINGTON (M - The Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee unanimously approved yesterday a compromise bill to
put limits on presidential power to commit U.S. armed forces
to any war overseas without Congressional approval.
Furthermore, the bill restricts the conditions to attacks
on the United States or on its armed forces or to forestall the
'direct and imminent' threat of such an attack. The bill
also allows for the evacuation of American citizens for pro-
tection against a direct and imminent threat on their lives.
Though Sen. J. W. Fulbright (D-Ark.) the committee
chairman, said he is concerned -
that the provision relating to
forestalling threat of an attack
could authorize a pre-emptive U.S.
strike, Sen. Jacob Javits (R-N.Y.)
said the "direct and imminent" pi
language provides sufficient pro- str~ie tcapital

the Belgian - made, English-
language "Daughters of Dark-
ness," which arrived yesterday.
S u b t 1 e, stately, stunningly
colored and exquisitely direct-
ed by Belgium's young Harry
Kumel, the co-scenarist, this
is far and away the. most ar-
tistic vampire shocker since
the Franco-Italian "Blood and
Roses" 10 years ago. The cen-
sors-on this side of the water
anyway-almost crippled that
one by yanking out the homo-
sexuality. The new picture is
stronger and better-rounded,
with the same double theme
intact. Like a poisonous flow-
er, it wafts through the main
premises, a huge coastal hotel

off-season, housing a honey-
moon couple, two strange wo-
men guests and a quaking
porter. That is the set-up, and
we guarantee that the picture,
gliding silkenly into horror,
will glue you to your seat.
John Karlen, Daniels Quimet,
and Andrea Rau do well, but
it is the honey-voiced evil
conveyed by Delphine Seyrig,
from "Last Year at Marien-
bad," that dominates the foot-
age. If she ever checks into a
Hilton Hotel, with the bril-
liant Mr. Kumel again pilot-
ing, that should be quite a
picture, too.

UNMANNED CAPSULE
Russia lands Mars craft

MOSCOW (P)-An unmanned
Soviet space capsule parachut-
ed last week onto Mars sending
television and radio signals to
earth, Tass, the Soviet news
agency, revealed yesterday.
The landing marks the first
time that a functioning man-
made object has soft landed on
the planet's surface.
However, no information was
released on the type of data the
capsule collected.
With this landing on Mars,
the U.S.S.R. has'accomplished
a feat the U S. cannot hope to
duplicate before 1976
The capsule was dispatched to
Mars last Thursday from the

probe Mars 3, which continued
to circle the planet in an orbit
more than 930 miles high, Tass
announced
No details were. given on the
shape or weight of the capsule
or the next step in its mission.
But whether the Russians
have achieved a dramatic first
in space exploration will depend
upon what type instruments are
aboard the capsule and how
much data the capsule returns.
"A soft landing on Mars is
not a simple engineering prob-
lem," one of the designers of
the Soviet craft said. "Unfor-
tunately, little is still known
about the nature of the planet,
its surface and atmosphere."
