Bl3 Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday. Nov. 17. 1968 r- L Method Found To Tell Test From Quake that those from the nuclear powers attended with the knowledge and to some extent the approval of their governments, since all were associated in some way with national efforts to improve bomb detection methods. The new technique compares the magnitude of a seis mic event, as recorded In terms of waves traveling across the surface of the earth, with the magnitude of waves from the same event that have passed through the depths of the earth (so-called "body" waves). Analyses carried out by American, British. Canadian and Soviet scientists have shown that In bomb explosions the strength of the surface waves relative to that of the body waves is consistently less than in natural explosions. The Stockholm conferees agreed, according to the report of their meeting, that for events generating surface waves of magnitude 4.75 or above It, it is now possible to distinguish "all explosions." An earthquake of magnitude 4.75 can be felt but it Ts not seriously destructive. A nuclear explosion in granite of 10-kiloton yield (equivalent to 10 thousand tons of TNT) produces tremors of similar mag nitude. However, to Insure against cheating in a test ban a government would like to be able to identify explosions in the range of one or a few kilo-tons. The possibility that this can be done looms much larger as a result of the Stockholm meeting. A. I 4 j shop fiiotirfat night 'til 9:30 ( I . V . Time. N n Srrvlrr NEW YORK A method has been developed that makes it possible for technicians thousands of miles from the site of an underground nu clear explosion to determine unequivocally whether it is a man-made explosion or a natural earthquake. Thus, for the first time in the long effort to achieve a total ban on nuclear weapons testing, a way has been found to monitor moderate and large-yield explosions without on-site inspection. Specialists from all the nuclear powers except communist China, meeting in Stockholm, have examined the new method and confirmed its effectiveness. The extent to which it can ultimately be applied to explosions of small yield remains uncertain. However, the Stockholm talks have initiated searches for various other "tags" of nuclear These developments come at a time when a resumption of East-West negotiations on a total ban on atomic explosions is again being discussed. The new bomb detection method is the most dramatic of several discussed at the Stockholm meeting. The conference was the first relating to control of nuclear weapons that has included a French specialist. It was the first international meeting on underground weapons detection since the technical talks on this subject ended in Geneva eight years ago. The sessions took place privately during one week of and one week of June. The resulting report reached this country a few days ago. The participants were invited by the New International Institute for Peace and Conflict Research as individuals, rather than as national representatives. Nevertheless, it was evident warm up the automatic way and save!

It seems that if the auditorium had an address on Jefferson Avenue where most people think it is it would be within 500 feet of Old Mariners church, serving liquor there would violate a city law. Man Charged With Forgery SALISBURY, Rhodesia (AP) British Commonwealth Minister George Thomson flew out of Salisbury Saturday, with Rhodesian independence negotiations still hopelessly deadlocked. Thomson, who is also minister with special responsibility for Rhodesia, failed in two weiks of talks to break the impasse that prevents Britain from recognizing the independence that Rhodesia seized three vears ago. From the beginning, the talks took a predictable course: Britain demanded a guarantee that Africans here will continue to make progress, and Rhodesia's white minority government met every such suggestion with a blunt no. Without British safeguard, Britain would not trust the Rhodesian regime to improve the political lot of Africans to a point whore they can govern the country. Prime Minister lan Smith refused to accept what he calls "second class independence." Oetails of the negotiations that began Nov. 4 have not been disclosed. Thomson is expected to outline the issues more clearly and perhaps reveal Britain's future plans when he addresses the House of Commons Monday. Smith probably will present his side in a countrywide television and radio broadcast early next week. The basis for the negotiations has been the British proposals presented on the warship Fearless at Gibraltar five weeks ago.

Webb DeV'on became the new president, following Thomas Duncan, both of Tampa. Among those present were farmers from all over the United States. This morning A. V. Uiinkl (ilisson. manager of the Hying Cow Ranch, across from the Inn, was scheduled to show the members the agricultural operations of the ranch, including 2.000 acres of citrus, 3,000 acres of sugar cane, 1.0(H) acres of sod, 1,(KH) acres of truck farming and the newly-developed machine for cleaning clogged canals. The planes were to start leaving at noon. Nixon Boards Air Force One MIAMI, Fla. (AI'I - President elect Richard M. Nixon took hi,: first flight on an airplane that is not yet his: Air Force One. Technically, it did not bear that designation because the President was not aboard. But the silver and blue four-engine jet is the one which normally carries President Johnson. Presumably, it was used with Johnson's permission for Nixon's flight from New York to Miami. George C. Howell, 21. 9501 Military Trail, Lake Park, was booked into the county jail Friday afternoon on two counts of forgery and two counts of uttering a forgery.
