INTERNATIONAL TELEGRAPH AND TELEPHONE (ITT)
appealed to the Supreme Court yesterday to upset a ruling that
striking workers may receive welfare benefits.
The ruling, announced last December by the U.S. Circuit Court
in Boston, was the first to declare that welfare payments by the states
do not conflict with the national policy of free collective bargaining.
The Supreme Court is expecting the appeal before the current
term ends and to announce whether it will hear the case.
The circuit court decision was based on a Teamsters' Union Strike
last August against ITT Lamp Division's plant in Lynn, Mass.

A RUSSIAN DOCTOR was rescued yesterday from pursuit by
Soviet police intruding on U.S. embassy grounds in Moscow.
Vasily Nikitenkov, 43, told embassy spokesmen that he wanted
to emigrate to Israel because he was dissatisfied with life in the So-
viet Union.
The Soviet government has taken a major policy decision on the
Jewish emigration problem and has permitted about 150 Jews to leave
for Israel within the past 10 days.
This was in response to a series of militant sit-in demonstrations
in Moscow government buildings in the past three weeks and mount-
ing international pressures.

CONSERVATION GROUPS yesterday reached a settlement
with Consumers Power Co., owner of a $120 million nuclear pow-
er plant which borders Lake Michigan.
The Palisades plant was the subject of a nine-month legal battle,
concerning ecological safeguards.
The settlement calls for cooling towers and traps for radioactive
wastes, adding about $15 million to the plant's cost.
The Palisades is expected to provide 20 per cent of consumers'
generating capacity.
Originally Consumers planned to dump 550 million gallons of
water, heated 25 degrees above the lake's temperature, into Lake,
Michigan each day. In addition, the firm was to pour 90 gallons of
liquid radioactive waste into the lake each hour.
Consumers has operated a nuclear plant near Charlevoix since
1962 and is planning another near Midland, but Palisades is supposed
to be the largest such plant in the nation.
THE NATION'S ECONOMY, following two months of pro-
gress, showed a decline of the key industrial production index for
January.
Output, decreased by four-tenths of one per cent, disclosing re-
luctance of big business to invest in production and consumer hesi-
tation to spend savings, despite deficit spending, according to a re-
port released yesterday by the Federal Reserve Board. /

EIGHT PATIENTS at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit died
' of blood infections during the past four months, because of taint-
ed bottle caps.
Investigators from the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta
determined that bacteria got under plastic liners of intravenous con-
tainer caps during manufacture by Abbott Laboratories in Chicago,
it was reported in yesterday's Detroit Free Press.
Similarly contaminated bottles, representing the production of
Abbott since February 1970, are believed to be in use in a large num-
ber of hospitals across the country.

WASHINGTON (M - A $3.6-billion, across-the-board in-

Congress yesterday - tied to a record boost in the limit on
the national debt.
Under parliamentary strategy devised only a week ago by
Democratic congressional leaders, the bill by-passed legis-

The White Panther Party was accused by a Senate subcommittee
of plotting to kidnap government officials to be exchanged for im-

MY LAI SUMMATIONS:
Calley defense pins
* Md
wuvfar gutIt on Medina
FT. BENNING, Ga. (IP) - Lt. William Calley, 27, was described
by his defense counsel yesterday as a "pigeon" for the My Lai massa-
cre - "the lowest officer on the totem pole in this whole business."
In a final summation to the six-man court-martial jury, attorney
George Latimer again sought to pin responsibility for Calley's action
at My Lai on orders he said came from the company commander,
Capt. Ernest Medina, to wipe out all inhabitants of the village during
a combat assault exactly three years ago yesterday.
Calley stands accused of killing or ordering the execution of at
least 102 men, women and children. The jury will also have the op-

ing through the Senate a few.
The measure carries a 19
curity benefits for 26 million
Americans, retroactive to Jan.
1.
The Social Security provision is
attached as a rider on a bill to
raise the ceiling on the nation
debt by $35 billion to $430 bil-
lion.
President Nixon is to sign the
bill today.
The speedup plan probably will
advance by several months, the
date when recipients will find the
10 per cent hike reflected in their
checks.
The Social Security boost, which
will be added to a 15 per cent hike
made in January 1970, goes to
those receiving retirement, dis-
ability and family-survivor checks.
It will be reflected f i r s t in
checks due on June 3. A separate
retroactivity payment is'to be
made later.
Cost of the increase will be $3.6
billion for a full year.
At the insistence of House
spokesmen, the conference com-
mittee trimmed out of the b il l
other increases voted by the Sen-
ate that would have increased the
cost by more than another $2 bil-
lion.
Taxes would increase a maxi-
mum of $62.40 each for the em-
ploye and employer under provis-
ions effective in 1972.
Under present law, taxes are
paid on up to $7,800 of annual
earnings. This base would be rais-
ed to $9,000 next year. The cur-
rent tax rate, 5.2 per cent, would
stay the same in 1972.

By The Associated Press
Premier Golda Meir yeste#day
won a vote of confidence from, Is-
Srael's parliament for her policy on
occupied Arab territory - attack-
ed as too soft by right-wing dep-
uties and too rigid by critics
abroad
The Knesset, voted 62-0, with
12 abstentions, to support Meir af-
ter a bitter debate in which she
rejected right-wing demands that
Israel keep all Arab territory seiz-
ed in the 1967 war.
In Washington, Secretary of
State William Rogers criticized
Meir for her assertion thatIsrael
must base its future security on
the geographical position it estab
lishes in a peace settlement rath-
er than on international guaran-+
tees.
Rogers warned that failure of
Middle East peace efforts could
produce a .dangerous situation in
the world and "possibly lead to
World War III." He urged Israel
to consider seriously political ar-
rangements built around a U.N.
peace-keeping force in which the
United States and other 'powers
would participate.
Israeli Foreign Minister Abba
Eban, arriving yesterday in New
York, said the 1967 war "offered
a case history in the collapse" of
such guarantees and declared Is-
rael w ill not put its future in
"vague or fragile solutions."
Eban will meet with Rogers and
U.N. Secretary-General U Thant.
The vote in the Knesset in Je-
srusalem was preceded by a pro-
cedural dispute and a shouting
match that was described as the
angriest incident the house has
i known for years.
CThe members of the Gahal, Free
Center and State List parties
stormed out of the session. after
d the presidium refused to allow a
secret ballot.

ond-degree m u r d e r, voluntary
manslaughter or acquitting him
outright.
Earlier, the government wound
up its final summation by de-
manding that Calley be convicted
as charged with the premeditated
murder of 102 unresisting Vietna-
mese men, women and children at
My Lai on March 16, 1968.
During the overnight recess,
NBC television news reported that
a member of the Calley j u r y,
Maj. Walter Kinard, was a com-
pany commander in the 173rd Air-
borne Brigade at the same time as
Lt. Col. Anthony Herbert of Ft.
McPherson, Ga., was w i t h the
unit.
Herbert said he has signed and
mailed charges of dereliction of
duty against two fellow A r m y
commanders whom he accused of
covering up incidents of murder
and torture of Vietnamese civil-
ians.
