It's a world of cily streets empty of traffic, of sidewalks still waiting the first hurried footsteps of go-to-work people. It's the time when night moves off and lets daytime come, witli fog sometimes, and lazy dawn sounds from neighborhoods waking. Edgar Aliviado, 14, of 1103 "E" Court, Wilming- ton, riding his bicycle along one of · the Wilmington streets where he delivers the Sunday Independent, Press-Telegram and The Independent on w e e k d a y mornings, heard a sound Sunday morning that he knew shouldn't be there -at an empty street corner, in the fog and half-light. He heard it again, and he turned his bicycle back and stopped and searched. The sound was a baby crying. Edgar searched near the sidewalk in a weedy lot, then heard sharply the thin, shrill voice. On hands and knees now, he peered into the opening of a storm drain at Gulf Avenue and West D Street--and found a paper shopping bag which moved and made sounds. He reached his hnnd down to the paper bag, pushed the paper open and saw a baby's faco. Edgar pounded on a door at 824 West D St., awakened the people there and phoned Harbor Division po- lice. Soon Officer J. L. Monaghan lifted the shopping bag from the dark gutter drain and an ambulance took the baby to a hospital. Edgar, who found a 3- hour-old boy and gave him a chance for life, kept vigil later Sunday at Harbor General Hospital. Word was brought to him at times that John Doe, the six-pound foundling, still was "doing Ok" in the hospital's intensive-care unit. "I hope he lives," Edgar said, over and over.

'During the scuffle, Officer Charles Horton's .25-caliber.. automatic pistol fell to the floor and one of the bandits grabbed it and attempted to shoot him. The bandit squeezed the trigger repeatedly but the gun didn't fire, apparently because he didn't know how to use the pistol. Horton, in civilian clothes, stooped at -Wonderland Liquor/ 1178 W. Katella Ave., to buy cigarettes and walked-in on the robbery at 3:55 p.m. The bandits were holding clerk Daniel B. Mascara, 27, at bay with a sawed-off rifle. "GIVE US YOUR wallet," one of the bandits ordered Horton. Remembering his badge in his wallet, Horton instead tried to give the robbers money from his front pockets. But the bandit insisted on his wallet. Opening the wallet, the bandit saw the badge and, pointing the rifle at Horton, said: "You've had it." The 30-year-old policeman grabbed the muzzle of the rifle and tried to take'it away. The bandit's two accomplices joined the struggle and Mascaro sprinted from the store to a nearby self-service laundry to telephone police. HORTON began throwing bottles of liquor at the robbers. Finally, one of the bandits hit him on the back of the head with the rifle, knocking him to the floor. The bandits, described as between 19 and 23, took an undetermined amount of cash and fled on foot east on Katella. Horton, a policeman since August 1964, suffered head bruises, a deep cut on the right thumb and a sprained right wrist. CAPE KENNEDY (UP!)-Gemini 8 astronauts N e i l Armstrong and David Scott spent a rainy Sunday getting set for their rendezvous, hookup and space-stroll mission while p r e p a r a t i o n s rolled along smoothly toward blastoff Tuesday.

AP) -- A tractor-trailer hauling fertilizer-to-be up Virginia's eastern shore Inadvertently dumped its cargo Sunday morning, spewing six tons of assorted fish over a quarter-mile stretch of U.S. 13. As motorists picked their way through the slippery, nose-wrinkling road hazard In the predawn darkness, the truck's driver,:William Hamilton of. Chesapeake, discovered that a rust-weakened side of the cargo trailer had given way, leaking more than one-third of his 18-ton load.

The.way he explained it seemed to put heavier than usual emphasis on the aspect of U.S. policy which advocates not isolating C h i n a trom the rest of the world. He'said also that it would be profitable for the U.S. to develop in Asia the same kind of readiness for contact that had been true with tho containment policy of Russia n Europe. · · » * I DO BELIEVE that containment of aggressive militancy of China is a worthy objective, but containment without necessarily isolation," lie said.

Brown maintains a comfortable lead at this time in the contest for the Democratic nomination, The State Poll reports. Last week a cross-section of California Democrats were asked for whom they would vote between Gov. Brown and Los Angeles Mayor Sam Yorty. The results of the interviewing by The State Poll, conducted prior to Yorty's announcement of his candidacy, were: Total Soulh North Brown 49.2% 48.0% 53.2% Yorty 27.8% 30.1% 24.5% Don't Know 23,2% 23.9% 22.3% In a head-and-head survey last January, Brown had 55.7% of the Democratic respondents in his corner and Yorty had 22.6%. More than 21% didn't have any choice to express. The most important factor to consider in the outcome of the question is the high "don't know" factor. Almost one-fourth or the registered Democrats in the state do nui. know at this time for whom they will vote. Brown, as a two-term incumbent, would normally expect strong support among Democrats, but at the time the poll was taken his budgetary proposals were undergoing the close scrutiny of the legislature. The increasing costs of financing the activities of the nation's most populous state have detracted from Brown's support.
