Inc "Say, you don't expect EVERYONE in the White House to follow the example of ethical standards you set, do you?" Klansmen reported headed for Boston BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) A Ku Klux Klan leader says Klan organizers are heading for Boston to join the uproar there over school busing, which he called a turning point in resistance to "forced race mixing." David Duke, 23, state grand dragon of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, said Tuesday that about 300 Klansmen will aid whites protesting a federal court order that about one-fifth of Boston's 94,000 school children be bused to achieve more racial integration in public schools. The decision sparked some turmoil there last week, but attendance was up slightly Tuesday and the city relatively quiet. "I would like to stress we are not going to Boston to start trouble or violence but to effectively organize the white people," Duke said. "So far they have been an amorphous mob." Duke's group is among a dozen or so descendants of the old terrorist KKK organization. But Duke said if Boston police continue to prevent public demonstrations against busing, many people "will be forced into a more violent position than they are now in." The youthful leader said his Klan has "engaged a lawyer and plans to sue the city of Boston for $10 million if they continue to try to restrict our civil rights." Savoring the irony, Duke said the Knights had organized a reverse of the "Freedom Rides" Cave may shed new light on a lost race MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexican archeologists have found a cave underneath the Pyramid of the Sun used by the Teo- tihuacans about 300 A.D. which may soon shed more light about the origin and customs of the mysterious race, officials have reported. The cave, running east to west and about 328 feet long and about 13 feet high, is 16 feet underground exactly below the center of the 820-square-foot base of the Pyramid of the Sun in the Teotihuacan archeological center 30 miles northeast of Mexico City. It was found by a team from the Mexican National Institute of Anthropology and History two years ago. But it has not been studied completely and the announcement of the find was not publicly made, Dr. Jorge Acosta, institute pre-Hispanic department chief director, told the Associated Press in an interview. He said a great quantity of pre-classic period broken pottery and ceramics were found in the cave. No sorting of the pottery has yet been made. "But the study of the cave and the pottery may help us know more about the mysterious Teotihuacans whom we know very little of indeed," Acosta said. So little is known of the people who inhabited the region that the original name of the place remains a mystery. Teo- tihuacan is an Aztec dialect name meaning "place of the gods." The ancient Aztecs, who ar- rived in Mexico about the 9th century A.D., already found Teotihuacan deserted but considered the city sacred. Acosta says that the origin of the Teotihuacan race is totally unknown. The enigma of the lost people may never be solved because of the lack of documents or codices abouf them, he said. "They came and disappeared without leaving much trace," he said. But the discovery of the cave, he added, may help shed new light on the mysterious culture which built the massive soil and clay pyramids of the central plateau. Besides the 170-feet-high Pyramid of the Sun, the Teo- tihuacans also erected a smaller Pyramid of the Moon. However, no cave has been found underneath the other pyramid. The discovery of the sun cave was accidental after a heavy downpour which uncovered the opening of the tunnel-like cave, Acosta said. On entering, the archeologists saw the cave walls smoothed out with dark clay but there were no engravings or decorations on the walls. On the floor and in a chamber-like area at the end of the cave they found broken pottery. Almost at the end of the cave, Acosta said, the archeologists found three pathways opening up like a three-leaf clover structure. "We believe the cave may have been a ritual chamber," Acosta said. The institute plans to issue a complete report on the find in a few months, he added. of the middle '50s and early '60s in which Northern college students went South to work for integration. He said 45 to 50 Klansmen already in Boston take credit for hassling Sen. Edward MM Kennedy, D-Mass., last week when he tried to address an antibus- ing crowd. Kennedy, booed and heckled, sought refuge in the municipal building. There was no way to check the progress or effectiveness of the new "Freedom Rides North." The KK splinter groups are all secretive about membership and operations. Duke said about 150 Klansmen plan to go to Boston from eight Southern states, traveling separately, with "probably an equal number from Northern states and areas around Boston." He said they will wear no robes or hoods. "We feel like Boston is a signal, a turning point in this fight against forced race mixing," Duke said. CHIMP TALKS BY COMPUTER ATLANTA (AP) - Scientists at the Yerkes Regional Primate Research Center in Atlanta claim they've taught a chimpanzee to communicate with them through a complex system involving a computer. The chimp has a vocabulary of some 75 words and is capable of making such basic requests as "please machine give piece of banana" and "please machine make window open." The researchers also say the chimp, named Lana, can ask questions and make simple comments on her surroundings.
