NY police
walkout
continues
NEW YORK ( - Deprived
of the services of 20,000 po-
licemen, New Yorkers took the
third day of a work stoppage
in stride yesterday, with no
visible increases in street
crime.
Mayor John Lindsay strongly
denounced the job action by pa-
trolmen who have refused to obey
a back-to-work court order and
left police protection in the hands
of a thin blue line of officers and
plainclothesmen.
The mayor praised citizens for
being "very cool" and Police Com-
missioner Patrick Murphy said
"from all indications there was
no drastic increase in crime"
since t h e job action started
Thursday.
The policemen walked out when
a state court ruled that their de-
mand for pay parity with ser-
geants had to be judged by a Jury
trial. They had waited six months
for the decision.
Lindsay said the city owed "the
deepest gratitude" to those mem-
bers of t h e 32,000-man depart-
ment who continued to work "to
maintain the frontline defense of
our city," many on 12-hour shifts
without days off.
"This superb performance by
several thousand men contrasts
sharply with the illegal actions of
some 20,000 patrolmen," the ma-
yor said. "They are violating the
clear law of this city and state."
City streets were empty of blue-
uniformed men walking their nor-
mal beats. Police cars, manned by
plainclothesmen, detectives a n d
uniformed officers attempted to
fill the gap.
While the rate of arrests was
down more than 50 per cent, no
upsurge of violence was reported.
Calls for emergency assistance
were lower and complaints of all
types were reduced by half, ap-
parently due to public awareness
of the reduced force.
However, there were indications
of a rebellion in the ranks of the
Patrolmen's Benevolent Associa-
tion (PBA), negotiator for thLie
police. The PBA had not sanction-
ed the walkout by the men, who
insisted that they would not re-
turn until they received $2,700 in
back pay.
PBA President Edward Kiernan
had insisted his men wait for a
court to uphold their contention
that they were entitled to parity
with a wage increase granted ser-
geants.
"I know why I didn't go on
patrol," said Joseph Caramanica,
"The city made a contract with
me. They owe me $2,700. I've al-
ready started spending the money.
Some people may call it a sociolo-
gical problem. To me and every cop
I know, it's strictly economical."

OFFICIAL "RUN-AROUND"?
Vietnam news crisis seen

O'Brien's statement said "where
state laws might be applied to
deny full participation to 18-year-
olds, Democratic state parties
should seek to change those laws"
as well as laws involving state and
local elections.
The Supreme Court's Dec. 21
ruling upheld the 18-year-old vot-
ing law for federal elections but
said the right to vote in state and
local elections remains within the
jurisdiction of the states.
O'Brien based his view on a-
opinion by the national commit-
tee's general counsel, Joseph Cali-
fano Jr. about the law's applica-
bility to the early stages of elect-
ing a president.
Califano said it is his opinion
that the law applies "to all pri-
mary or other election of office
holders who, by reason of their
office have a voice, or have the
power to designate persons who
have a voice, in the selection of
candidates" for president, vice-
president or Congress.
Thus, for example, he said, 18-
year-olds have the right to sit on

SAIGON (AP)-The military
information crisis in South
Vietnam has reached the point
where even the U.S. Command's
chief of information doesn't
want to talk about it on the
record.
Many western correspondents
here see a reduction in informa-
tion about what is happening
as a product of the U.S. with-
drawal.
More than ever newsmen are
complaining about being given
an official run-around. Mili-
tary spokesmen, instead of
answering questions, refer them
to someone else who is likely to
say he doesn't know the answers

or is not authorized to give out
the information.
Such buck passing seemingly
has become more prevalent in
recent months and is one of the
chief irritants for newsmen.
They contend that from the
highest level-the Office of In-
formation of the U.S. Military
Assistance Command. Vietnam
-MACV-down to the lower
echelons, a clampdown is in ef-
fect.
This is denied by top military
spokesmen. One of them says
that if there is less information
available on military activity,
it probably is because less is
happening on the battlefield.
"The command is geared to

handle combat information," he
said, "but there isn't as much of
this now and the press is con-
centrating on other things.
"The responsibility for these
other things-shootings, fire
bombings, court-martials, what
I call 'police reporter' stuff-
belong to the individual serv-
ices and they can't expect
MACV to have all the details."
But some newsmen contend
that because of needless restric-
tions, red tape or plain timidity
on the part of some officials, it's
often impossible to get informa-
tion even when the reporting
would show the military in a
good light.
