(AP) A Navy fighter-bomber accidentally dropped an air-to-surface missile on the home of a judge during a training flight Sunday morning, causing serious damage but no injuries, military spokesmen said. A spokesman for the Defense Department said the Walleye missile that crashed into the house ordinarily "could be jettisoned only under emergency conditions." But the spokesman said the plane, an A4 Skyhawk, apparently returned without further trouble to the Naval Air Station in Atlanta, after the mishap. The spokesman said a Navy investigation team was en route to the scene, but that it was not known immediately what may have caused the accident. The missile fell through the roof of the home of Judge James Parrott of the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals. The Pentagon said the missile was inert during what was described as "a routine reserve flight." Parrott said he was at church in this small East Tennessee community when the missile fell.

In the house were the judge's son Al and his motherin-law, Mrs. W.K. Calfee. The judge's son-in-law, Tom Stinnett, said the six-foot 9 0 0-pound missile smashed through the roof and two floors of the home.

(AP) Hot Debate Expected in House Today Over Funding of School Integration By DAVID E. ROSENBAUM (c) N. Y. Times News Service WASHINGTON In the midst of a national furor over the busing of schoolchildren from one district to another, the House will begin Monday what promises to be a fiery debate on President Nixon's bill to give financial help to communities that are desegregating their schools.

The administration, with the help of the Democratic leadership in the House, has neered a circuitous parliamentary strategy to bring the bill to the floor for a vote and has formed a fragile political coalition to press for its passage. Nixon has urged the House to amend the bill, which provides $1.5 billion over two years to help defray the costs of desegregation, to prohibit the use of the money for busing. But the administration has mounted a vigorous lobbying Message to Mayor: Gee, Have a Heart INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Louis B. Russell, the world's longest surviving heart transplant recipient, questions whether Indianapolis Mayor Richard G. Lugar still likes him.

Russell said the first two years after his operation, Lugar, a Republican, declared Aug. 24 as Louis Russell Day because that was the day of his operation. But this year the mayor did not declare the day. "He doesn't like me any more. Or do you think it's because I'm running for the City-County Council as a Democrat?" Russell asked.

Russell is a Democratic nominee for an at-large seat on the council. campaign to rally support behind the bill when it comes before the House Monday under an unusual procedure that forbids amendments and requires a two-thirds majority for passage. If the measure is defeated Monday, as most representatives believe it will be, it will be offered later in the week as an amendment to the higher education bill, which will be up for debate Wednesday and possibly Thursday. Should the desegregation aid legislation, which was passed by the Senate last spring, fail then, it will almost certainly be dead for the year at least. The legislation was approved early in October by the House Education and Labor Committee, but William M.

Colmer, the conservative Mississippi Democrat who heads the Rules Committee, has refused to clear the bill for floor action. In an effort to save 'the measure, House Speaker Carl Albert agreed last week to permit it to be voted on under a procedure called "suspension of the rules." Because amendments are prohibited, representatives will be spared a direct vote on Monday on proposals by Nixon JOSEPH Clerk of Courts and others to forbid the money to be used for busing. This strategy seems likely to win the votes of some northern Democrats who normally support civil rights legislation but who are eager to avoid a vote on busing. A vote against an antibusing a end ment would alienate white voters in their districts, while a vote for such an amendment would hurt them politically in black areas.

White House officials said Sunday President Nixon wants aid continued in a coordinated way and has no intention of seeking piecemeal supplemental appropriations to continue one or another section of the aid effort. Press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler said, "A piecemeal solution isn't the answer." The White House disclosed its Blasts Rip Two Sites In London LONDON (AP) A violent explosion rocked an army barracks a quarter of a mile from Parliament early Monday, only 24 hours after a blast ripped a gaping hole near the top of London's 620-foot showpiece Post Office Tower. The impact damaged the main doors and shattered windows a at the Westminster Barracks used by volunteer reserve units and office staff of the Royal Tank Regiment.

No casualties were reported in the barracks, which were empty except for a caretaker. Police immediately cordoned off the area. The Post Office Tower is miles from the barracks. Police spokesmen declined to speculate whether the two explosions were linked. Police have strengthened the guard on most public buildings -including the Houses of Parliament where Queen Elizabeth is scheduled to open the new session on Tuesday since the tower explosion.

An anonymous informant said after the blast at the tower, Britain's largest building, that it was the work of Irish underground forces. Detectives were checking into a telephone call made by a man speaking with an Irish accent to the British Press Association. The caller, who claimed to represent the out law Irish Republican Army, said the IRA planted the bomb and more would follow. The IRA's provisional wing, the militant attacks group Northern staging rorist in land, and the more politically oriented official wing, both denied responsibility for the blast.

J. W. Fulbright said he expects the Senate to approve an interim program excluding funds "for the military domination of other countries." The Arkansas Democrat did not state flatly that military aid to South Vietnam should be ruled out but said military-assistance programs are "sticking points" that could preclude continuation of foreign aid. "To liquidate the (U.S.) involvement in Vietnam is the announced policy, of this country," Fulbright adding co that if the Senate vote rejecting a twoyear extension of the program helped toward that goal it was a good move. Nixon, who spent part of the weekend at his Camp David hideaway near Thurmont, conferred by telephone with William Timmons, a key White House lobbyist, on strategy to offset Friday's surprise Senate vote.

Nixon and Timmons, officials said, agreed the first order of business would be to seek passage of a resolution that would continue foreign aid beyond its scheduled Nov. 15 expiration at current levels. If such a resolution, subject to periodic renewal, is adopted, Nixon would plan to develop a whole new aid program.

In the absence of congressional action by Nov. 15, he said, the big Agency for International I Development would shut down for lack of funds to pay its employes. Fulbright, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said the Senate vote marked "the beginning of a period of great opportunity to be more cooperative and not so domineering" in foreign relations. Fulbright appeared on the CBS radio-television program, "Face the Nation." Fulbright's committee meets Monday but he said it will not attempt to shape a new program on its own at that time. He put it this way: "All I did was suggest to the members that we ought to get together and just evaluate the situation.

There's not the slightest idea that we will act on anything, propose anything simply a discussion session." Fulbright said aid to countries like Laos and South Vietnam would face "a lingering death" as programs now in effect gradually ran out. But he said "grab-bag" programs that "were all things to all people" will not be seen again. He said the interim program probably would "take care of those parts of the (foreign aid) program that are the least controversial." He cited such things as funds for Pakistani refugees as an example. Fulbright said he doesn't agree with some senators that funds for the United Nations should be cut severely in the wake of the world body's ouster of Nationalist China. But, he said, "there are reforms that should be made." He said $400 million in funds to finance military sales to Israel as included in the old bill "was a very special case" the Senate would have to consider.

He mentioned as an example such things could be handled by simple resolutions in the Senate and not included in foreign aid. Fulbright, long a critic of U.S. involvement in Vietnam, said one of the reasons often cited as justification for our presence in Indochina is the military program. He said this deepened our involvement there. Fulbright said also Nixon's threat of a veto if the bill was not passed as he wanted it helped to cause its defeat.

He said senators reacted angrily to the threat and to what he called overlobbying by the administration. Fulbright said the Senate action reflected softening of an "almost religious obsession with communism." "This is the first time," he said, "the Senate took the responsibility that the Constitution expects of it." Sen. George McGovern said Sunday he will file bills Monday to restore a credit arrangement for Israel and aid for Pakistani refugees which were in the defeated foreign aid bill. The South Dakota Democrat, who is seeking his party's 1972 presidential nomination, said he will also file a bill "to prohibit all military aid to the repressive Greek regime."
