Fig* A-I-1NDEFENDENT Ixtf (Mdk ttOL, »·** Awl I tMl i --L.A.C. SAYS: Earthquakes and Water Air Attack by Cubans Explained WASHINGTON MV-Cuba J apologized Tuesday for its Some of the problems of bringing Feather River water to the Los Angeles County srea are discussed by state Director of Water Resources William Warne. He frankly describes the dangers from earthquakes, subsidence in the San Joaquin Valley and the ability to lift the water over the mountains separating the South from the North. * * e One of the problems he discussed was how to design and build pumps to lift 1.5 million gallons of water per minute up two-fifths of a mile over the mountains. We will have to do it to take the Feather River Aqueduct over the Tehachapi mountains. Pumps have been used for the purpose in many parts of the world, but not in such volume or with as great a lift · He also tells of the problem of building the aqueduct through the San Joaquin Valley where serious subsidence occurs when the land is soaked. This is not the only reason for subsidence in the area--since it -has been shown it occurs where ground water or oQ : has been greatly lowered as it has in our Wilmington ·'oilfield. But building a great aqueduct across such ·, lands is a problem. · · · : '·:. * * * ; ; : Probably the greatest problem is the danger of : earthquakes along the San Andreas fault This fault ; rins from the Imperial Valley along the San Bemar- ; ifino and coastal mountains into the ocean north of ; San Francisco. Tests have shown that this slippage of lands results in a shift of about two inches a year. As.stresses are built up, there is a drastic slippage . which causes earth tremors reaching far out on either side. :- ? Major quakes occurred from this fault in 1S37, ;;the San Francisco quake in 1905 and the Bakersfield : quake of 1940. No one can predict when a quake will occur--but it is virtually certain they will continue to / occur in the future as they have in the past The fault '.affecting Southern California enters the mountains ; north of Redlands through Tejon and on to the coastal :; mountains. The aqueduct will run close to Tejon, one - of the'raost dangerous areas. . ' - · :' .*: ". * * * ·X It is reassuring to know the director in charge of "[this program is carrying on exhaustive studies of these t jjroblems. He says the aqueduct along, or where it ^crosses, the fault, will be above ground so it can be r_«grlckly repaired. He also points out that the Colorado t; River and Owens River aqueducts also cross faults -.arjd are subject to damage from earthquakes. 24; These are indications of the perils to the southern :"c§mties which in another i 0 to 20 years wul be almost ~1 entirely dependent upon imported water. As our popu- ~ lajion doubles and ground waters are exhausted, we ;; njust have other sources of supply. But our coastal rfrfrc ran have an inexhaustible supply from the ocean. : ; 2^ The desalting of ocean water is our greatest safe- grid. As we spend billions for construction of aque- t .ducts to bring water 200 to 600 miles away--it would ,'jseon reasonable to spend a sizable proportion to ; Tdevelop desalting plants. It is already being done on a -;small scale. The people would be much more secure -JJ greater efforts were shown to bring down the cost for' production in large quantities. We can get along - .without many of the benefits we enjoy--but we can't 'g\t along without fresh water.--LA.C. ' . . ' . *-*» flAC/i column, ty L A.

Cittwikl Fran TM Wrt l«rvct British a c t o r Richard Burton and his blonde wife Sybil, announced Tuesday night in New York they have agreed to a legal separation. But its terms made no provision for his romance with Elizabeth Taylor. "Divorce has not been considered or discussed," said Aaron Frosch, attorney for the Burtons. "All fiyifln*fo1 and other arrangements have been concluded." Frosch, a New York at- · torney, accompanied Mrs. Burton earlier in the day when she flew in from London, ostensibly for an Easter vacation with her father-in-law, Philip Burton. She brought her two children Katherine and Jessica. Burton stayed behind with Miss Taylor, with whom he has been closely linked romantically. Sb« has been pictured as urging divorce upon fr"r* so he would be free to marry. He, in turn, has been portrayed as reluctant. Miss Taylor, 31, one of America's great s c r e e n beauties, is separated from her fourth husband, singer Eddie Fisher. Burton and Miss Taylor are in London, working on a new picture.

PREDICTION British histctian Arnold Toynbee predicts the end cf war. For the first time in history the alternative to abolishing war is the destruction of all or a great part of the human race. Toynbee remarked in a lecture at Stanford University. "This is quite a new situation, and I believe it is going to stimulate the human race to abolish the institution cf war," he declared.
