Bill Alexander, D-Ark., said here Saturday. ."I believe that no state in this nation should be able to participate in a national health insurance program unless as a condition for participation is it shows that it has equitable distribution of doctors in the countryside as well as in the cities," Alexander said. He said that he hoped to make that a part of the law if Congress passes a national health insurance program. LONOKE, Ark.

Mrs. Mitchell, who was 10 minutes late because her car had a flat tire, appeared tanned and wearing a pink gown. She commented on a number of topics, including Richard Nixon's resignation as president and amnesty for Watergate figures. "It's the greatest thing that's happened to this country," she said of the resignation. "I think all the politicians will be true blue-again. They're not going to be dishonest." Mrs. Mitchell, estranged wife of former Atty. Gen. John Mitchell, said she was opposed to political amnesty for Nixon, Mitchell and others. Jay Jennings, 26, who wed Janis Crawford, 22, was born when Mrs. Mitchell was married to Clyde Jennings Jr. of Jacksonville, Fla. Jennings graduated from the Virginia Military Institute with a degree in English. He met his bride-to-be when they were students at the University of Mississippi's law school.

He was freed after his family Old burial chamber occupies scientists LONDON (AP) — Archeologists will gather in December in the dark recesses of an ancient burial mound in Ireland to view an annual phenomenon that has occurred with precise regularity for 5,000 years. With the coming of the winter solstice Dec, 21 a thin shaft of sunlight will pierce the darkness to illuminate an altar stone, carved with three mysterious spirals, at the back of the burial chamber 62 feet inside the mound, The alignment of the tomb's tiny entrance and the altar stone with the sun's rays five days either side of the winter solstice — the sun's lowest point in the heavens — indicates the stone-age people who built the mound around 3100 B.C. had a remarkably precise knowledge of the solar cycles. MANAGUA, Nicaragua (AP) — Nicaragua's perennial dicta- torn Gen. Anastasio Somoza, headed for his expected landslide victory today as vote counting continued after Sunday's presidential election. Early returns showed Somoza leading Conservative party candidate Edmundo Pagagua by at least 20 to 1, a top official of Somoza's Liberal party said. LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Dr. Herbert E. Alexander, former executive director of the President's Commission on Campaign Costs, will address a conference on campaign finance Saturday. The one-day conference, sponsored by the Institute of Politics in Arkansas, will be at the University of Arkansas- Little Rock. Gov. Dale Bumpers also will address the conference. Dale Enoch, the institute's director, said the conference is designed "to focus attention on the problems of paying for our political process in Arkansas. The mound, near the village of Slane in County Meath about 30 miles northwest of Dublin, predates England's Stonehenge, a mysterious circle of massive stones also aligned with the sun's movements, by more than 1,000 years. That would make the Irish burial mound, scientists claim, the oldest astronomically oriented monument in the world. The Irish mound supports the theory that various Stone-Age cultures in the British Isles investigated solar cycles and may have exchanged information that resulted in the construction of Stonehenge on the Salisbury Plain about 1900 B.C. "Stonehenge and its astronomically positioned stones might have become an important repository or library of astronomical knowledge known at the time," says Jon Patrick of the Dublin College of Technology. Patrick, an Australian-born lecturer in land surveying, surveyed the astronomical align^ ment oi tne Irish mound for Michael O'Kelly, professor of archeology at University College to Cork, Ireland. A report of the survey appeared in "Nature," the prestigious British science journal. During the winter solstice in 1969 O'Kelly observed that four minutes after sunrise the sun's rays shone through the "roof box," a yard-wide rectangular opening just above the entrance. They penetrated to the rear of the burial chamber and fully illuminated it for 17 minutes before the sun moved out of alignment. Patrick wrote that O'Kelly asked him "to make an accu- rante survey of the roof box to see if this phenomenon would have occurred when the burial chamber was first built." After a complicated series of measurements involving the distant horizon and placement of the chamber, Patrick concluded "that the sun has shone down the passage to the chamber ever since the date of its construction and will probably continue to do so forever." Patrick noted that Ireland has about 200 such burial mounds, sometimes called "fairy forts," but "to my knowledge none of them has a roof box" like the one in County Meath. "As this structure is unique, and as the whole monument is so grandiose," Patrick wrote, "it seems likely that its orientation is deliberate." Little is Known about the people who built the County Meath mound, but archeologists speculate they worshiped the sun and thus gave much attention to the study of its movement through the heavens. Penetration of the sun's rays to the altar stone, where the dead were apparently cremated, may have symbolized ultimate resurrection. A 1967 excavation of the tomb floor revealed the burnt bone fragments of about five persons. But "the tomb has been open to visitors since 1699," Patrick wrote, "and an unknown amount of the original burial deposit may have been removed since then." reportedly paid a ransom. $2.7 million By JAY PERKINS • Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The head of a union of flight attendants predicts more strikes by stewardesses unless airlines slop viewing them as "coffee, tea or milk girls." "Like any other professional group, we're seeking career goals in our contract negotiations," Kelly Rueck, president of the Association of Flight Attendants, said today. "The coffee, tea or milk syndrome of the '60s, is long dead but the airlines obviously haven't learned to bury it," she said. The result is "serious confrontation at the bargaining table." There have been four strikes by airline flight attendants in the past 16 months. Previously, there had been only four strikes by stewardesses since 1958. Federal law requires airlines to have flight attendants on all flights, so a walkout by stewardesses can shut an airline down. The association, which represents 20,000 flight attendants, is in the midst of negotiations with four airlines. The labor demands of stewardesses have changed substantially in recent years as a result of the women's movement and court decisions on sex discrimination allegations by flight attendants, said Ms. Rueck, as she prefers to be known. The women's movement "had a great impact, particularly in increased awareness of our legal ' rights and professional goals," she said. "There has been a dramatic change in our attitudes toward our jobs .... We've become much more career-oriented." As a result of court decisions, the airlines have dropped their ban on married stewardesses and stopped firing flight attendants when they reach a certain age. In the past, most airlines fifed stewardesses after they reached age 32. Only five years ago, the average^.flight attendant's career lasted 18 months. Retirement plans, company-paid life insurance and related career benefits were virtually nonexistent, Ms. Rueck said. Today's average flight attendant, however, has been on the job for nearly six years. Four out of 10 are married. Many have children, and nearly five per cent are men. The flight attendants no longer see themselves as short-term employes primarily concerned with wages but rather as professionals with an interest in long-term fringe benefits. These changes have led their unions to press for retirement plans;- company-paid life insurance, work rules, maternity leave, improvements in health provisions, and an end to height and weight restrictions and other allegedly discriminatory provisions.
