The Queen is on a 21-day (our of the United Slates, (UPO And By The Way... By DONA1. O'lllGGINS DUBLIN, Ireland (UPt) By the lime Christopher Colum bus stepped ashore in 1492, the American Indians probably greeted him in Gaelic. Al leasl that's the way'they see it in Counly Kerry}' birthplace of Ireland's 6lh-cenlury seafaring sainl, "Brendan the Naviga- lor." Local tradition holds that St. Brendan and other Irish missionaries were familiar faces to the American Indians 900 years before Columbus turned up. Now, a 36-year-old Englishman and a crew of four plans lo row 4,000 miles to prove the Irish right. Next Sunday Londoner Tim Severin and his crew will climb aboard Iheir currach — an all- (ealber, banana-shaped boat that is an exact replica of the one used by SI. Brendan — and set sail. The currach, built at Crosshaven boatyard in Counly Cork and launched with a boUle of Irish whisky instead of the traditional champagne, will set out from the County Kerry jumpoff point used by SI. Brendan. The boal, christened Brendan after tlw saint, is 36 feet long with an eight-foot beam. Like the ancient seagoing currachs, she will depend on her curred bow and stern for buoyancy — riding Ihe waves rather lhan culling through them. Externally the St. Brendan is a replica of the T-^ipval vessels used by the Irish Monks. But on board Ihe crew will use the latest modern equipment for seagoing cruising and survival. The crew — a navigator, meteorologist, cameraman and sailirg masler — will sail northward from Kerry around the coast of Ireland lo lona in Scotland and Ihe Faroes Islands and then on a westerly course lo Iceland and Greenland, finally turning southwest to Labrador and Iheir eventual destination, Boston. . The voyage is expected to take about four months "give or take a month" says Severin, author and explorer, who will write a book on the venture. He is a former geography scholar al Oxford University and Harkness Fellow at Berkeley, California, and Harvard. The legend of St. Brendan and his voyages seems lo have some foundation on both sides of Ihe Atlantic. Researchers point lo folklore of some Indian tribes that tells of white men emerging from the sea wearing 'long garments with crosses on them. Certain artifacts, such as sculptures, with a dislinclive Celtic characteristic, have been discovered in North America. This has been backed by references in ancient manuscripts, including the 10th- century "Navagatio Brendani," which sets out in detail the Atlantic voyages of the saint. Anti-Parochial School Group May Organize NEW HRVTAIN. Conn. (UPD — A group [bat opposes public aid to Cnlholic schools will Iry lo organize its 1.000 Connecticut mcml>ers into a slate chapter, a spokesman said Etld Ooerr of Americans and Others United for the Separation nf Church and State said a mooting will be held Sunday at 3 p.m. ill the Unitarian UniVersalisI Society in New Britain. The civil liberties group, which has been involved in many lawsuits Jigainsl public aid to Catholic schools, is based in Silver Spring. Md Doerr said an official slale chapter is long overdue and "will enable us In pay closer attention to church -state issues in Connecticut," The group filed a supporting brief in a l%8 suit that challenged (he constitutionality of a federal law that gave money to four Catholic colleges in Connecticut. The suit, sponsored by the American .tewish Congress and (he American Civil Liberties Union, wound up in the U.S. Supreme Court. The high court ruled in 1971 thai the federal aid was constilutJona), providing the facilities involved were never used for religious purposes. William Olds, executive direc- lor of the Conneclicut Civil Liberties Union, said Americans United probably would have initialed suits in several cases if Ihe CCI.U had not done so. William Wholean, executive director of the Connecticut Catholic Conference said he did nol think much of Americans United. "1 certainly don't see them as any pals," he said. Cleanup Workers' Lives Endan Gered: Report White Veto Of Curfew May Be Overridden HARTFORD, Conn. (UPI) A Connect icut environment al official said Thursday the Jives of workers who clean up spills •of hazardous rnateriaIs are being risked in nil the New England states except Maine. Melvin J. Schneidermeyer, deputy state enviromnenlal protection commissioner, said emergency workers do not have eilher (he proper equipment or information lo handle spills of hazardous materials, many of them exotic industrial chemicals. He said none of the New England slates, except Maine, provides safely equipment such as air packs and protective clolhing for workers who clean »p the spills. This failure is "needlessly risking their lives," he said. Schneidermeyer, addressing a conference sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in Lexington, Mass., said one major source of delay in cleaning up spills is Ihe difficulty of identifying the material involved. "Most transporters ... do nol specify (he chemical or hazardous materials on the containers," he said. "Often bills of fading, when available, give only trade names without As ii happened, the (ruck had been sending In a "NO PARKING" zone. Accordingly, Greg filed a damage ctaim against the trucking company. But the court ruled against him, pointing out that he himwlf was guilty of negligence. "A bicycle riiler, M said (he court, "has the same duly as any other vehicle operator—to keep it uniler such control that he can stop or turn to avoid collisions." Each community has i(s own set of legulations about the use of bicycles. But everywhere the law bsisfs on this basic rule of safety. A similar standard of due care applies to the motorist who encounters a bicyclist on the street. For example: A motorist on a highway could see ihat the bicycle rider ahead of him was having navigational problems. Carrying a raVe in one hand, the rider was barely Veep- ing his balance. And just as the car caught up, (he bicycle lurched into Us path. Hero, the motorist was held liable for the accident The court said that since he had plenty of lime 10 recognize the danger, he should have given the bicyclist a wider berth. One case involved a five-year- old toy who sallied forth on his tricycle after d.irl;. An inexperienced rider, he ran into a pedestrian on Ihe sidewalk and knocked him dovm. Under these circumstances a court made (he toy's paients pay damages. The court said they had no business allowing their child to become a public menace.

He said financing clean-up operations is a problem in all Ihe MHV England states except Maine and Massachusetts which have contingency funds to use for so-called "mysterious" spills- The other states, including Connecticut, depend on funds from the Environmenlal Protection Agency and have to wail for" the EPA either to arrive at the scene of a spill or to approve funds lo clean it up.

"1 am confident (of an override' and I'm surprised at the police commissioner- lie's told the people of Boston tie has no faith in the police department." Councilor Christopher Innarlla said. Two weeks ago. responding tc racially motivated nighttime street violence, the council passed a 10 p.m. citywide curfew for youngsters below the aae of 17. Write vetoed it Wednesday, calling it "unnecessary and impractical." "While I appreciate Ihe City Council's good-faith effort to deal constructively with violence in the streets, a curfew al Ihis time is unnecessary an( impractical." the mayor said. While told a news conferenct he rejected the curfew after consulation with Police Commissioner Robert diGraria and the managers of his communi ly based "little cily halls." lannella. who filed thi ordinance, is expected to leac an override attempt al the Council's next meeting. White said the proposed curfew "carries no built-in guarantee of curbing the violence it seeks to address. Many violent crimes are committed before 10 p.m. and many arrested are over 17." ! He said it would be "needless and unfair to limit the freedom of all for Ihe unfortunate acts of a few." MMe said he already has authority to impose an emergency curfew of up 72 hours and would use this power if necessary. He added, however, a curfew should not be imposed unless absolutely necessary because "a cily with a curfew is a cily with a sign saying trouble." He said tensions in Ihe cily have diminished in the past two weeks, in large part because motorcycle patrols were taken off daytime school bus escorl duty and reassigned to roving duties al night. Political campaign buttons go hack at least to Alexander Ihe Great, the National Geographic Society says. The ruler gave silver buttons to his constituents, promising the ancient equivalent of a New Deal.
