PAGE 10-A STATESVILLE HECORD St LANDMARK THURSDAY, JANUARY 4, 190« Qlass Sculpture a Fragile Art BREAKING GLASS is an art with Pascal, a woman artist who gave up painting to sculpt in "cullet," a crystal- clear glass residue. Pascal wears protective headgear and a specially designed breathing device as she works with an electric drill equipped with a sanding head. Flying glass slivers and dust make this step hazardous. At right are examples of the artist's work: top, "Reclining Woman;" bottom, Pascal is seen beside her "Head of a Child."

Gorse had no comment on widespread reports in Paris today the Hanoi position represents the "sign" Washington is waiting for. In London, the British Foreign Office said it has now received the official version of the Trinh statement and that it confirms Trinh said Hanoi "will" hold talks with the United States "on the questions concerned" once the bombing and the "other acts of war" halt. Diplomats in London said it remains unclear above all what Hanoi wants to discuss at such a meeting once one gets under way. They were not sure whether Hanoi was merely considering such a meeting as an opportunity to demand again the United States withdraw from Southeast Asia. To MMt Rusk The British Foreign office announced that Foreign Secretary George Brown will meet Rusk in San Francisco the weekend of Jan. 13-14. Presumably they will discuss the peace talks. Still another indication of Hanoi's possible readiness to discuss peace came from Paris where a "high" North Vietnamese diplomat suddenly granted an interview Wednesday to Bernard Redmont, correspondent of the Westinghouse Broadcasting Company, after turning him down for a year. Redmont said the diplomat told him Hanoi is willing to open peace negotiations if the PER CENT OF TOTAL CALIF. 1 N.Y. 2 PENN. 3 ILL. 4 TEXAS 5 OHIO 6 MICH. 7 N.J. 8 FLA. 9 MASS. 10 N.C. 11 IND. 12 MO. 13 VA. 14 GA. 15 WIS. 16 TENN. 17 MINN. 18 LA. 19 MD. 20 ALA. 21 KY. 22 WASH. 23 CONN. 24 IOWA 25 S.C. 26 OKLA. 27 MISS. 28 KAN. 29 COLO. 30 ARK. 31 ORE. 32 W.VA. 33 ARIZ. 34 NEB. 35 N.M. 36 MAINE 37 UTAH 3f.

United Nations Secretary General Thant said Wednesday in New York the Trinh statement reinforced his view that a "cessation of bombing is the first essential step which alone can lead to meaningful discussions and negotiations." Site of possible peace talks was only in the rumor stage. There were some reports North Vietnam had sounded out the Laotian, Cambodian and Burmese governments as a site but diplomatic sources in Vientiane said they knew nothing of such a report. There also was no word from London or Moscow on the possible reconvening of the 1954 Geneva conference on Indochina. The Soviet Union and Britain are co-chairmen of that conference which ended the Indochina war and divided the French colony into the Vietnams, Cambodia and Laos. W. R.

California remains the leader in numbers, while Alaska, biggest in size, observes the centennial of its relationship with the United States with the smallest number of residents. New Sensor Is Announced WASHINGTON (UPD—The national space agency has announced development of a tiny sensor which can be implanted in a human heart to measure blood pressure without disturbing the patient. The device, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), shows "great promise as a diagnostic and monitoring instrument." The blood-pressure sensor, so small it can be passed through an artery into the heart, is less than five one-hundredths of an inch in diameter. It is inserted into an artery with a hypodermic needle and maneuvered into HIP left ventricle of the heart. Courf Case Is Dismissed GAINESVILLE, Fla. (UPD— A judge Wednesday threw out charges that Pamme Brewer, whose nude pinup poses forced her withdrawal from the University of Florida, had sold obscene literature in her hippie shop. Alachua County Judge Ira Carter said the charges failed to specify that Miss Brewer had "knowingly sold" the material in her "Subterranean Circus" shop. Solicitor A. Z. Adkins did not indicate whether he planned to file new charges against the 19- year-old brunette who appeared in court in a miniskirt and net stockings. Pamme first attracted attention last year when an off- campus slick magazine at the university exposed her 38-inch bosom for the student body. She was forced out of school and subsequently opened the psychedelic shop specializing in hippie trappings and reading matter. Then on Dec. 6, Alachua County police arrested the young business woman at her shop and confiscated psychedelic posters and off-beat poetry they claimed were obscene. A January, 1967, issue of the Charlatan magazine featured Miss Brewer covered only by a pair of earings and school officials put her on disciplinary probation when a latter issue of the magazine again displayed her attributes in the raw, she was forced to drop out.

Smallest Firm Meets Union DETROIT (UPD-Negotiators for the United Auto Workers Union and American Motors Corp. return to the bargaining table today tt> discuss a new company proposal. The UAW, fresh from securing $3 billion worth of contracts from the "big three," and AMC, financially weakest of the car builders, met in two brief sessions Wednesday. A company spokesman said only the offer was a "three-year proposal." The union refused comment. A "news blackout," was agreed to by both AMC and the UAW as they broke up Wednesday's talks. Such a step has been a traditional sign that a settlement may be close. Previously, the blackout was imposed at the other automakers only when bargaining reached the serious stages. AMC employs 17,775 UAW members. AMC, despite an increase in sales with the introduction of 1968 models last fall, recorded sales of 241,039, down from 266,288 in 1966. However, sales during the final quarter were 23,039—highest in two years AMC said. Overpowering AMC in the car market were General Motors Corp. with 1967 sales of 4,138,620 passenger cars, and Chrysler Corp., with 1,353,766 auto sales for last year. Ford Motor Co. sales were to be announced today. Generally, car sales were skimpier for 1957 than for 1966. Total sales for the three firms were 5,733,790 cars, compared to the 6,002,733 figure of the previous year. Even with fewer sales, last year still went down as the third best on record for GM and Chrysler. World's longest avenue of i palms is t'he three-mile Vic- j tory Drive bordering Savannah, j Ga.

Hunter entered a plea of guilty of driving his pick-up truck along Highway 70 last March 4. Testimony of witnesses showed that the truck, with Hunter at the wheel, crossed into the left lane of the highway and went off on the shoulder, striking a horse being ridden by R. A. Collier, Jr., and also the pony being ridden by a ton of the Colliers, who was seriously injured as a result of the collision. Hunter was originally charged with second offense of driving drunk. The state accepted a plea of guilty of first offense of driving drunk and took a nol pros in a case in which Hunter was charged with being publicly drunk. He was sentenced to from 10 to 12 months on the roads.

In other cases heard yesterday afternoon and this morning the court took the following action: Dale Edward Johnson, nonsupport, one year suspended for five years on condition he pay $15 per week for support of his family. In a case in which Johnson was charged with improper muffler, the warrant was quashed on motion of the defendant.

He was advised by the court to pay his fine and costs and "get out of the county." The warrant was quashed in a case in which Hunter Clair Wilson was charged with driving drunk due to a technicality. The court instructed officers t o obtain a new warrant.
