i r JV Lza u NEW YORK, Saturday. A group of scientists here has urged all 124 members of the United Nations to bring up the problems of unidentified flying objects (UFOs or flying saucers) before the Security Council. I The Intercontinental U.F.O. research and Analytic Network (ICUFON) has asked the member nations to seek emergency classification of the subject. The group also asked that UFOs be placed on the agenda of the U.N. conference on the peaceful uses of outer space in Vienna on August 14-27. ICUFON said: "Factual evidence over the past 25 years of the activity on and around the globe by unknown aerial vehicles, official governmental investigation by several nations and the lack of an authorised international research body, motivate the emergency classification." ICUFON wants a country or private person to offer a restricted area to the U.N. for an international UFO research institute. It said that both Russia and the U.S. had admitted the possibility of UFOs The Soviet Union had called for "an urgent global study." ICUFON hopes to achieve the establishment of the international research body to supplement its own research into manned space vehicles from outer space. The head of ICUFON, Mr Colman Vonkeviczky, said that the seventh inter-, national U.F.O. congress at Mainz, West Germany, last November, offered conclusive, scientifically analysed proof of the existence of intelligently guided devices in the earth's aero-space and of test landings originating from outer space. Proof claimed Another group of scientists has urged the U.S. and other nations to cooperate in investigating the "utterly baffling" phenomena of U.F.O.s. They made their plea during testimony at a recent one-day symposium held by the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science and Astronautics in Washington.

Specially - hired Australian lifesavers are getting tired of British swimmers who take no notice of their advice. "There have been violent arguments and blows have been thrown with can't-be-tbld swimmers,". 24-year-old Brian Campbell said today. Campbell, a former member of Avalon Surf Club, said the trouble mostly started when bathers were warned that rough surf could he Haneernns. "You just can't tell them and as for the flag and sign warnings, they just ignore them," he said today. Campbell, who has been in Britain on and off for the past three years, said there were a couple of dozen paid Australian life-savers on the South Coast of Britain. They are hired by local councils, which pay them about $A34 a week. Campbell is the head beach patrolman for Newquay Council, in Cornwall, which hires about 10 life-savers to patrol its five miles of beaches. (A.A.P.) f Brigiite painting lawsuit ATILAN, Saturday. A 11 painting ' of actress Brigitte Bardot (pictured) as Eve offering an apple to husband Gunter Sachs, posing as Adam, is unwanted and unpaid for by the German millionaire. The painter, Gilberto Seven, is suing Sachs, who has been living apart from his blonde wife for several months, for payment on three pictures he is said to have commissioned. They are "the "Adam and Eve" and separate paintings of Mr Sachs and Miss Bardot. Seven said in an interview. Severi said the couple had asked that the paintings have a modest tone, and so he created a nocturnal atmosphere with backgrounds of their native regions Paris and Bar-aria. But the pictures were never collected and only a small advance payment made, he said. j W. R. & P. WOODWARD PTY. LTD. i FURNITURE MANUFACTURERS muw BEmsST mww msunnsm CROW'S NEST 102 CHANOOS ST.
