WASHINGTON (AP) Vice President Spiro T. Agnew conferred long-delayed Harmon international aviation trophies Wednesday on the first men on the moon, the first men to cross the Atlantic nonstop in a verl-cal takeoff (VOTL) airplane, and the first woman to become an airline pilot.

Winners of the awards, for outstanding feats of piloting skill in 1969, were announced last September. Difficulties in arranging the schedules of the recipients, from three different countries, caused the presentation to be delayed until now.

Squadron Leaders Thomas Leslie Lecky-Thompson and Graham Williams of the Royal Air Force shared the Harmon aviator's trophy for flying a Harrier VTOL aircraft from a coal yard in the heart of London, May 5, 1969, nonstop to a vertical landing six hours later on an East River site on New York City's Manhattan Island.

The trouble at the iaa began after Harris, a resident of Tuskegee, pulled a gun and started shooting at Amerson, By Rex Thomas OPELIKA, Ala. (AP) An all-white jury acquitted Negro Sheriff Lucius Amerson and his black chief deputy of beating a Negro prisoner after a jailhouse gunfight. After 65 minutes of deliberations Wednesday, the jury returned separate verdicts finding Amerson, 37, and Chief Deputy Richard Coleman 27, innocent of violating the civil rights of the prisoner, Wilbert Dean Harris.

The two officers were indicted by a federal grand jury after Harris complained that he was beaten and kicked after he sur Coleman and other officers ing all over the body, and in the later stages, there is fever every day. The person may lose weight. When there is a question as to whether a lump in the neck is the first sign of i 's disease, a biopsy (a microscopic study of a very thin slice of tissue taken from the node) should be made. Such a study can enable the doctors to make a definite diagnosis. Early Diagnosis For half a century, we doctors have known that if we can make the diagnosis early, and then treat the glands with powerful X-rays, the disease can be halted for as much as 10 years.

Now I read in Medical World News that Dr. Henry S. Kaplan, of Stanford University, emphasizes the fact that early Hodg-kin's disease yields well to what he calls an "irradiation blitz," meaning bombardment of the diseased tissues with the largest doses of X-rays that the body will tolerate. He says that this approach in selected patients achieves from 90 to 100 per cent of five-year cures. Unfortunately, the treatment of Hodgkin's disease that has returned several years after the patient's apparent cure is difficult and without much result.

There are some drugs that may help in the treatment of the disease. If you would like a copy of Dr. Alvarez' booklet, "Head Noises and Dizziness," just send 25 cents and a stamped, self-addressed envelope along with your request for it to Dr. Walter C. Alvarez, Dept.
