CREWMEN WAVE AND SNAP PHOTOS from the deck of the Soviet trawler Laptev, as the vessel
sailed off the coast of Florida yesterday. The ship stayed nearby as the U.S. nuclear sub James Madi-
son successfully launched the Poseidon missile for the first time from underwater.

CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. RP)-
The Navy's new multiwarhead
Poseidon missile passed its first
submerged launching test yes-
terday during a high seas drama
in which a Soviet spy ship near-
ly collided with a U.S. vessel in
a frantic, futile effort to pick
up launch debris.
The milestone test, from the
nuclear sub James Madison,
moved the Poseidon a major
step toward operational readi-
ness. It is to begin replacing the
Polaris early next year. Its mul-
tiple independently targeted re-
entry vehicle (MIRV) is capable
of raining 10 separate nuclear
bombs on enemy cities and in-
stallations.
The Russian fishing trawler
Laptev, bristling with radar and
other electronic gear, forced a
one-week postponement of the
firing when it probed to within
200 yards of the James Madison
during a practice run July 24.
The Laptev appeared on the
scene, 30 miles east of Cape
Kennedy, about 90 minutes be-
fore launch time Monday.
It immediately was shadowed
by the U.S. destroyer escort Cal-
caterra, and an Air Force heli-
copter made five passes over the
trawler. Destroyer and spy ship
maneuvered in a cat and mouse
game, approaching within 300

yards, and the American vessel
was successful in keeping the
trawler at bay.
The Russians were 3,000 yards
away when the Poseidon rode a
column of steam from 120 feet
deep, ignited above the surface
and propelled its MIRV package
toward a target area nearly
2,800 miles down the Atlantic
tracking range.
Minutes later, the spy ship
sped toward the launching site
and used nets and grappling
hooks in an effort to retrieve
several pieces of a plastic mem-
brane pierced by the rocket as
it darted from its launch tube
in the deck of the submarine.
The membrane kept water out
of thetube until the rocket was
unleashed.
But boats already had been
lowered from the Calcaterra and
the. test support ship, USS Ob-
servation Island, and American
sailors quickly salvaged all the
floating pieces.
In its haste, the Laptev raced
across the bow of the Observa-
tion Island.
The ship's commanding of-
ficer, Capt. William C. Dotson,
twice sounded a ship horn in an
international warning. But the
trawler disregarded it. Dotson
ordered his engines reversed and
stopped dead in the sea as the
Laptev sped past, within 80
yards.
"In my judgment, I had to
back up full," Dotson toldnews
men aboard the ship. "There
was definite danger of collision."
The captain said the U.S. gov- -
ernment would have to decide
whether to lodge a protest.
After failing to retrieve any
pieces, the Laptev maneuvered
alongside the Observation Is-
- land. Its crewmen waved, snap-
ped pictures and some gave a
thumbs up sign. 'Then the spy
ship sailed out of sight.
Navy officials said the mem-
brane segments were not classi-
fied and they didn't know why
the Russians were so eager to
get the pieces.
They speculated that the spy
ship's real purpose was to ob-
tain information on the sub's
exhaust to use in developing
submarine detection equipment.

DENVER, Colo. (P)--Presidentf
Nixon, accusing the news media
of making "heroes out of those
who engage in criminal activi-
ties," caused a stir yesterday by
sayirg Charles Manson is guilty,
directly, or indiirectly, of eight
murders.
Not lonk after Nixon spoke,
however, press secretary Ron-
ald L. Ziegler told newsmen-

'alleged'" in mentioning charg-

es against Manson. Ziegler said
he was, in effect, retracting the
President's statement.
But defense attorneys for
Manson on trial in Los Angeles
in connection with the slayings
of actress Sharon Tate and six
other persons last summer, im-
mediately announced they would
seek dismissal of the case
against the defendants on the
basis of the statement.
Appearing before reporters on
short notice in Denver's federal
courthouse before attending a
conference on law enforcement,
Nixon pointed to news coverage
of the trial and said:
"Here is a man who was
guilty, directly or indirectly, of
eight murders without reason.
Here is a man, yet, who, as
far as the coverage was con-
cerned, appeared to be a gla-
morous figure."

Soon afterward, Ziegler call-
ed reporters together to make
the retraction. In response to
a question on the President's
comment, Ziegler said, "The
phrase he used could lead to
some misinterpretation."
Asked if he was retracting
Nixon's statement, Ziegler re-
plied: "I think I've done that."
Atty Gen. John N. Mitchell
who was at Nixon's side when
he made the Manson comment,
was asked later about the re-
mark.
"I don't believe the President
made a charge or implied one,"
Mitchell said.
Ziegler, asked by a reporter
what coverage of the Manson
trial Nixon had seen, replied
that Nixon had read the Los An-
geles Times and the Los An-
geles Herald Examiner while in

In Los Angeles, Ronald Hugh-

in the Manson trial, told news-
men
"I'm going to make a notion
that the case against Manson
and the codefendants oe dis-
missed. The fact that the Peesi-

it necessary to comment an the

dant in this murder trial shows
