Skyscrapers swayed in Chicago, Detroit and Cincinnati. . A clock stopped in a Cleveland, Ohio, radio studio at 11:05 a.m. EST, the moment of the tremor. A 12 inch water main snapped at Charleston, 111., forcing 21.000 persons to boil their drinking water. Chimneys toppled In historic New Harmony, Ind. ST. LOUIS. Mo. (UPIt-The geologists said it might not happen again for 20 years. But some residents of the vast 23-state area rocked by a medium intensity earthquake Saturday were not completely reassured. They recalled tales of the 1811 quake at New Madrid, Mo., which caused the mighty Mississippi River to change its course. Saturday's quake, described In some areas as two separate shocks of 10 to 15 second duration, was centered near Mt. Carmel, 111., about 120 miles east of St. Louis, Mo., in the Wabash Valley. Had the epicenter of the quake, which measured 5.5 on the Richter scale been in a heavily populated area, the damage and casualties might have been more severe, the experts said. As It was, there were but four Injuries reported. A Hop-kinsville, Ky., woman sustained a broken hip, a St. Lou-Is boy incurred a severe head Injun' when struck by a falling chimney, a Benton, 111., girl was hit by a falling brick, and an Olney, 111., resident was cut bv bottles dislodged from a shelf. However, the shock was felt southward to Louisiana and Mississippi, northward to Toronto, Ont., westward to Oklahoma and Nebraska, and eastward to Pennsylvania and South Carolina, roughly one-third of the United States and a chunk of Canada. The National Earthquake Information Center, which located the epicenter and measured the intensity, said it was the severest earthquake in the eastern half of the nation since a 1944 quake at Massena, ,-.7 r ,.. ,- .j f i v ' 1 Although he did not mention Nixon's name, the pastor prayed for the success and safety of the nation's new leadership. Miss Woods' appointment is bound to be the least surprising that the President-elect will make between now and the Jan. 20 inauguration.

Nixon ended a four-day working vacation here Sunday by readying himself for a While House meeting today with President .Johnson and making the first apppointment of his new administration. Named as personal secretary to the President in the Nixon Administration was Rose 'Mary Woods, Nixon's personal secretary since W."1. Nixon's last day at this island resort below Miami was spent in the same manner as his previous days here re-laxing'and working. Reporters seeking to discover Nixon's reaction to an alleged assassination plot on his lite that was broken up in Brooklyn, N.Y., drew a "no comment" from press spokesman Pon Ziegler. Nixon went to church Sun-da morning and appeared relaxed. Security was not notica-bly tighter than it has been since he arrived here late Wednesday night. Ziegler said Nixon learned of the alleged plot "through news reports," However, a source close to Nixon said privately "we were aware of it" before it was publicized. Secret Service protection was increased markedly on Wednesday, presumably because candidate Nixon had just become President-elect Nixon and in accordance with law Nixon became virtually a ward of the government. Agents who had "escorted" the candidate during the campaign moved in and took over full direction of his movements. Rather than staff aides, agents now chart and decide the routes that Nixon will travel. Ziegler told newsmen at a local motel that the Presidentelect and his family would spend the day at the Biscayne Bay home they are renting from Sen. George Smathers, D-Fla., and at the next-door home of C. G. Rebozo, a Key Biscayne businessman and old friend of Nixon. In response to reporters' questions, Ziegler said Nixon was "giving thought" to and conversing with his staff on today's meeting with Johnson. At that session Nixon is expected to discuss with Johnson and Secretary of State Dean Rusk the prospects for success of the Vietnam peace negotiations In Paris and Nixon's relationship to that effort. Nixon has offered to undertake a mission to Paris or Saigon' If the President felt such a trip would be helpful. He might also send an observer "to sit in on the Paris peace talks, a possibility which Nixon says he will discuss with Johnson and Rusk. The get-together at the White House will also include a luncheon to which Mrs. Nixon and Mrs. Johnson will partake. Afterwards, while the men deal with matters of state, Mrs. Johnson will escort her successor as first lady on a tour of the White House. The Nixons, along with daughters Tricia and Julie and Rebozo, attended services Sunday at the Key Biscayne Presbyterian Church. They and about iVK) others heard the Revv John Huffman deliver a sermon entitled "Here Comes The Judge," a topical appeal againsi overly critical judgment of one's neighbors.
