MONDAY EVENING, JUNE 6, I960 TUCSON DAILY CITIZEN PAGE? --Citlitn Phot* CHARTING CHILEAN QUAKE Tucson geophysicists Ronald Viets (left) and James Roberts study seismograph sheet of recent earthquake in Chile at U.S. Magnetic Observatory on Tanque Verde road. They issued initial alert on the quake to San Francisco and-Honolulu. Spy Pact Writes To Family NORTON, Va. -W-A spokesman for the father of U2 pilot Francis G. Powers says he understands the family has received a letter from the Russian captive. Sol Cury, a Norton businessman and close friend of Oliver Powers of nearby Pound, says he be- lieves only one letter was received and that it went to the younger Powers' wife at Milledgeville, Ga. The elder Powers could not be reached for comment. Newsweek magazine, in its forthcoming issue, says letters went by regular mail to the father .and the wife. A cousin of Mrs. Powers, Mrs. Helen Beck, today said she hasn't heard anything about any letters. Mrs. Beck, who is visiting in Mrs. Powers' mother's home at Milledgeville, said "-they haven't mentioned it to me." Mrs. Beck added 'that Mrs. Powers wasn't at home and "isn't $50 for 2'wks . ... only 70XJ other IOMM to $600 with 24 moc. to repay.

The Institute for German Industry, which collects industrial information about both East and West Germany, said Communist authorities were now organizing housewives into work brigades under the banner of the Democratic Women's League. The brigades are expected to do 15 to 20 hours work a week either in industry or agriculture, and to "renounce" payment for "patriotic.reasons." The institute said Communist authorities hope more than 25 million man hours will be worked by housewives in 1960. able to talk to anyone." Newsweek quoted Powers' letters as saving he knows he must stand trial for spying. And the magazine said he urged the family not to try to visit him until after the trial--persuading his father to call off a plan to try to go to Russia. But Cury said he understands the letter, which he didn't see personally, did not discourage the family from visiting Russia. Bells And Flashing Lights ·* Announced Chilean Quakes measurements of the earth's mag- j netic field. j The Viets. who hnve three chil-! drcn, and the Roberts live in two i comfortable houses about 200 f r e t ! from the office. One of the RMV ! physicists has to be within hear- j ing distance of the alarm at all I By LESLIE ERNENWEIN Two men--Ronald Viets and James Roberts--were the first persons in Tucson to know about the recent disastrous earthquakes in Chile. They were "shaken" out of their beds at 3:46 a.m. on a Saturday when the automatic warning device rang bells at the U. S. Magnetic Observatory on Tanque Verde road. Earthquakes are their business. The ringing bells and flashing lights alerted the Viets and Roberts families, who live at the observatory. The two men hastily pulled on their trousers and rushed "to the office where things literally were popping. Their wives yawned and went back to sleep. "We woke up quick when we saw what was happening on the seismograph," Viets said. "The pen galvanometer was galloping all over the sheet." The action of the instruments told Viets and Roberts that a severe earthquake was occurring. Using metric measurements, they charted 1 the location as being some 5,400 miles south of Tucson. The equipment at the observatory includes instruments so sensitive that a minor quake anywhere in the world is picked up there. Five seismographs of varying sensitivity in the office and a seismometer installation on bed rock near the Prison Camp in the Catalinas measure the quakes. The latter instrument is connected with the observatory by radio. In recent years the use of magnetic information has been , increasingly more important for re : search purposes tied in with studies of cosrrtic ray activity which changes the earth's magnetic intensity and direction. The observatory here is one^of two stations operated by the Coast and Geodetic Survey in the United States. The other is at Fredericksburg, Va. The initial alert on the Chilean qusktrs cams from the Tucson observatory. How long did it take Viets and Roberts to compute the Chilean earthquake's distance from Tucson? "Less than 10 minutes," Viets said. "Then we called the Federal Aviation Authority, in San Francisco who radioed the information to Honolulu immediately." The observatory is located here because of this region's low level of magnetic and seismological disturbance. Its principal function is to maintain continuous records and "We used to h? quite Isolated out there hut now the city is catch- j ing up with us," Viets said. "We Slave neighbors within half a mile." i The station, established in 1909. | is surrounded by 169 acres, and i there is * splendid view of the i C«t»llnas from the two homes. How do the two men like their jobs? "Fine." said Roberts. "It's a ; good place to live." ; Viets agreed. He pointed out that j most major earthquakes seem to \ occur at ni^ht after they've gone j to bed. j "Our wives have become condi-' tinned.to the night alarms," he j snid. "They always wake up, of j course, as the bells are real loud-- j but they soon go back to sleep."

His semantic smorgasbord includes: appetizers (TNT); bear* (valves, cabbage (bearings); biscuits (rocks); apple butter (engine belt dressing); donuts (round tubing); macaroni (big pipe); spaghetti (little pipe), and catsup (red acid).

We told you about them a few months back. Naturally, we know that everybody read about them, and henceforth, --never has spilled any soft drinks, coffee, tea, cocktails or anything on clothes. Naturally. I'm here,to tell you that I'm gltd human beings art human beings. Being one of the tribe myself, I have no choice but- to defend us. But I'm also here to tell you that you can be more certain of less staining and fewer spots if you'll change just one lousy little habit when it comes to stains. It will be easier and less work for you, too, and you'll be surer the- spots and stains will come out 'EM ALONE. No rubbing, no wiping. 5ust bring them in to be cleaned as soon after staining as possible and tell us what the stuff was. We'll go to work with special digesters and spot removers, and get it out for you. Remember, rubbing only forces the stains-in deeper, making them harder to get out And, remember 'that if you let them age in the closet, they'll "fix" permanently, and then you'll never get them out Of course, on'wet-washable garments, the thing to do is to rinse the spot out immediately in clear, cool water. You see, coffee, soft drinks, alcoholic drinks and so on contain many complex chemicals, and to monkey with them without knowing the cecreet remedy is only inviting trouble. It'd be just like doping out some private formula for a lubricant to-go into the engine of your car. You wouldn't 'do that, weald yea? So, why tamper with stains? Why sot, instead, CALL Oft KRING THEM TO CLEANERS IMi If.
