THE FEDERAL RESERVE BOARD pared its discount rate
from 6 per cent to 5% per cent yesterday in a move it said
reflects a general downward trend in interest rates.
While some viewed the cut as only a symbolic or technical action,
the decision is likely to lead to a decrease in the prime interest
rate, the amount Federal banks charge their biggest customers.
The move, less a stimulative than a following action, appears to
indicate a feeling by the board that inflation has been dampened
in recent months.

THE VATICAN announced yesterday that it has established
diplomatic relations with the European Common Market and
its other components.
The Holy See named a nuncio, or ambassador, to the community
composed of the market, the Coal and Steel community and the
Atomic Energy Union.
Archbishop Itino Cardinale will be the envoy following "the life
and activity of institutions which promote collaboration between
states in view of the supreme good of peace, and moral, cultural
and economic progress."

Although the stated purpose is to reduce the risk of

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT yesterday continued i ts
crackdown on reciprocal purchase agreements in the steel industry
with an antitrust suit against Bethlehem Steel Corp.

1ST LT. WILLIAM CALLEY, JR. won the right at a prelimin-
ary court-martial hearing yesterday to argue that any massacre
at My Lai was the result of orders from superior officers.
The prosecution asked that the defense be barred from citing any
orders Calley might have received from his company commander,
Capt. Ernest L. Medina, who also faces court-martial in connection
with the My Lai incident.
THE OHIO GRAND JURY which investigated the Kent State
disorders never saw an important Justice Department report, re-
ported the Akron Beacon Journal yesterday.
Special prosecutor Robert Balyeat told the Beacon Journal that
the grand jury was not given the report, because it is "not normally
the practice to present to a grand jury conclusions of other persons.''
The Justice Department memorandum said that there was reason
to believe that Ohio National Guardsmen fabricated their story of
self-defense after four students were fatally shot and nine wounded
in a May 4 confrontation between guardsmen and anti-war protesters.
A SOVIET DESTROYER collided Monday night with the

ANKARA, Turkey (P) - Two
American generals whose small
plane flew by error to the Soviet
Union Oct. 21 returned to An-
kara yesterday b u t they main-
tained silence on how they landed
in Soviet Armenia.
T h e incident, which threw a
chill into Soviet-U.S. relations,
occurred when a light plane car-
rying the two generals drifted off
course and landed in Soviet Ar-
The two were held. for two
weeks while talks were held to ar-
range their release.
An informed source said t h e

ward C. D. Scherrer, chief of the
American military aid mission to
Turkey, and his assistant, Brig:
Gen. Claude M. McQuarrie Jr. -
were under orders not to talk af-
ter they flew to Ankara.
One top American official said
he believed the matter would now
be kept under wraps to avoid pos-
sible aggravation of Turkish-
Russian and American-Russian
relations. "The questions may nev-
er be answered publicly," he said.
WASHINGTON UP) - A union'
leader said yesterday he will call
a nationwide railroad strike Dec.

in rail history.

C. L. Dennis of the Brotherhood
of Railway Clerks s a i d of the
board's recommendation for wage
hikes of 36 per cent over three
years for 500,000 workers now,
averaging $3.68 per hour.
The strike date is one day af-

" .HOSPITAL is a study of an institution or, more precisely,
of the people who serve and are served by a government-sup-
ported agency. The people of HOSPITAL can administer an emetic
to a young art student poisoned by a bad mescaline pill, they can
stand sympathetically by as he retches the poison out of his sys-
tem, . . . but they cannot cure his sickness. That is the theme of
the film. The people of HOSPITAL are in no position to practice
preventive medicine on an entire society."
