ISRAELI FOREIGN MINISTER Abba Eban yesterday raised the
possibility of an agreement with Egypt to reopen the Suez canal as
a means of moving the stalled Middle East peace talks.
Diplomatic sources in London, where Eban stopped enroute to the
United States, said Israel may also propose leasing the strategic point
of Sharm el Sheik from Egypt instead of annexing it.
Sharm el Sheik controls access to the Straits of Tiran, Israel's only
outlet to the Red Sea.
DRAFT RESISTER David Harris was released yesterday from
La Tuna Federal Correctional Institute in El Paso Texas on orders
from the Board of Parole.
Harris, along with his wife, folksinger Joan Baez, was reported
enroute to San Francisco where he indicated he will make a statement.
Harris was imprisoned for refusing to accept military induction in
August of 1969 and has become a symbol of resistance to the Vietnam
war.

THE STATE DEPARTMENT lifted yesterday 20-year-old re- x
strictions on the travel of American citizens to the People's Republic
of China.
Secretary of State William Rogers said passports would no longer.. ... ...
carry a stamp stating that they could not be used for travel to the :":::.
Chinese mainland.
State Department officials expect the new action to have little or:r
no effect on actual travel by Americans because the Chinese regime has
allowed very few Americans to enter the country.
HUNDREDS OF MOURNERS paid their last respects to Whit-
ney Young Jr., the 49 year-old civil rights leader who died while Fr e o

PRESIDENT RICHARD NIXON declared Florida a major dis-
aster area yesterday because of frost and freeze damage to- crops
and announced a $2.5 million grant of disaster money to help un-
employed agricultural workers.
Nixon's action followed demonstrations during the weekend by
hundreds of migrant workers affected by the crop freezes and marks
the first time there has ever been a disaster declaration as a result of
crop freezes.

SENATE-HOUSE CONFEREES quickly agreed yesterday on
a 10 per cent across-the-board increase in Social Security benefits
for 26 million Americans retroactive to Jan. 1.
Congressional leaders said they hoped to push the compromise
measure to President Nixon today.
The Social Security provisions were tied to a bill urgently sought
by Nixon to raise the national debt limit $35 billion to a record $450
billion.

Govt. concludes case'
in Calley mnurder trial
FT. BENNING, Ga. 0A) - The government called it an undisputed
fact yesterday that Lt. William L. Calley Jr. shot unresisting men,

years ago.

as the jury prepared for a possible start to their deliberations today.

leg9al
ANKARA, Turkey M - Pres-
ident Cevdet Sunay said yes-
terday the military ouster of
P r e m i e r Suleyman Demirel
was legally justified and sav-
ed the country from a "dark
crisis."
Speaking on t h e state radio
Sunay called for an end to po-
litical bickering and asked Turks
to support a new nonpartisan "na-
tional coalition government be-
ing formed to replace Demirel's
conservative Justice party admin-
istration.
"We have reached a stage in
which it is no longer possible to
tolerate differences of belief, pol-
icy or behavior among citizens and
organizations whose duty it is to
enforce the constitution," Sunay
sad.
T h e commanders of Turkey's
500,000-man armed forces threat-
ened Frday to seize power if a
'strong and respected" new gov-
ernment wasrnot formed to halt
anarchy and make reforms.
"Our armed forces . . . have
once again carried out their du-
ties according to the constitution
and law No. 211, Sunay said.
The constitution gives the arm-
ed forces commanders the right
to advise the Council of Ministers
on matters of national security.
Lsaw 211, governing military ac-
ivities, gives the armed forces the
duty to protect the nation and
supervise national security.
Sunay accused the Demirel gov-
ernment of not bringing any
planned and successful education-
al reform, which he said was par-
ticularly needed because of the
drift of students into extreme
ideologies and violence.
He said a "strong new Cabinet"
working above party "politics and
rithin democratic principes would
ackle problems with dynamic pol-
ies, and solve the law and order
problem with "speed and cour-
age>"
For these effortsto be success-
ful Sunay asked that all citizens,
political parties,, constitutional in-
titutions, the opposition outside
Parliament, youth and workers
ooperate to support the new gov-
ernment with constructive state-
ments and behavior.
HEW school
spending hit
Senator Walter Mondale (D-
Minn.) accusedthe Department of
Health Education and Welfare
(HEW) today of ignoring congres-
sional guidelines in dispensing
money to desegregate school dis-
tricts.
Mondale said HEW approved the
purchase of a $15,000 mobile zoo
and $30,000 in television equipment
for school systems receiving funds
from a $75 million school-desegre-
gation program.
The senator cited a Government
Accounting Office (GAO) audit
which he said shows_"applications
were approved which contained
proposals having nothing whatso-
ever to do with the problems of
desegregation.

COOL RECEPTION,
Pakistani chief visits Dacca

DACCA, East Pakistan (") -
President Agha Mohammed Ya-
hya Khan came to this capital
of rebellious East Pakistan yes-
terday and received a cool re-
ception from workers and resi-
dents.
Thousands of East Pakistanis
stood silently behind a cordon
of armed soldiers as Yahya
drove from theairport for a
meeting with Sheik Mujibur
Rahman, East Pakistan's undis-
puted leader who has seized con-
trol of the provincial govern-
ment in a move for greater au-
tonomy from the central gov-
ernment.
A black flag of mourning flew

over the gate of an arms fac-
tory in place of the usual green
flag with crescent of Pakistan..
Workers at a machine tool fac-
tory next door hung an effigy
of Yahya from the gate.
"He is no longer our presi-
dent," said a union spokesman.
Sheik Mujib, as Rahman is
popularly known, eased a gen-
eral strike he called in the pro-
vince but at the same t i m e
tightened his hold on the pro -
vincial government.
Thousands of workers stayed
off the job, however.
East Pakistan is separated
from West Pakistan, where the
central government is located,
n. Able toI
a pain, it'

by 1,000 miles of Indian terri-
tory.
Sheik Mujib, who heads the
Awami League, the dominant
political party in the East, is
trying to force the West Pakis-
tanis to agree to a large meas-
ure of autonomy for the more
populous eastern province.
In the face of demands by lo-
cal businessmen,dSheik Mujib
agreed to order ports to func-
tion; importsand exports to be
moved; foreign mail and tele-
grams transmitted; one hour of
communications daily between
the East and West, primarily to
benefit banks.
He also ordered the reopen-
ing of government-owned fac-
tories and foreign airline offic-
es; payment of wages to govern-
ment employes and employes of
semigovernment agencies and
the payment of pensions.
The sheik also lifted his ban
on payment of most taxes, but
ordered the money be kept from
the central government.

70 My Lai villagers died beneath
American weapons fire into the
ditch March 16, 1968, and that 30

intersection within the village.
Calley is charged with a total of
102 premeditated murders that day
and could be sentenced to death if
convicted.
Daniel made no claim that the
30 shootings at the trail were undis-
puted. They have been denied by
Calley.
Referring to the victims at My
