SCOUTS LOOK TO
BALTIMORE (AP) - These days,
there's more to Scouting than learning
how to tie a double-sheep-shank.
For a group of young men and women
students in Baltimore, the Explorin
division of Scouting has given them
hands-on experience in environmental
control, and an award.
The organization is an offshoot of
Scouting devoted to career develop-
ment. Each Explorer post is sponsored
by area corporate volunteers - in this
city by Koppers, Inc., a Pittsburgh-
based industrial firm. This year, the
company and its subsidiaries will work
with more than 40 Explorer groups in
the United States.
The goal of this liaison is to help the
students explore the technical and
social aspects of pollution and its con-
trol. The Explorer post of Baltimore
received a special citation of
recognition from the Boy Scouts of
America for exceptional work in en-
vironmental control and for its exhibit

JACKSON, Miss. (AP)-The first

years and one of the last of the old-time
southern Democrats. Sen. John Stennis,
who still holds office, was elected in
THERE ARE nine candidates in
Tuesday's primaries, seven Democrats
and two Republicans, and for the
Democrats there is almost sure to be a
runoff on June 27.
Gov. Cliff Finch, unable to succeed
himself as chief executive, is conceded
to be the front-runner in the
Democratic primary. Former Lt. Gov.
Charles Sullivan, former Gov. Bill
Waller and Maurice Dantin, a lawyer,
are seen as principal contenders for the
second spot in the runoff.
Republican candidates in the GOP's
first statewide primary ever are Rep.
Thad Cochran and state Sen. Charles
Pickering, who resigned as state GOP
chairman to make the race. The winner
is expected to be a contender in
November despite limited primary par-
The 73-year-old Eastland has taken
no public part in the race, declining
even to predict a winner.
