Find Supply Base Kansas May Set Aside a Voter Registration Day SAIGON (AP) - Vietnamese troops sweeping the Khe Sanh area near the Laotian border uncovered a major North Vietnamese supply base today and the biggest single cache of munitions in recent months, the South Vietnamese command reported. Lt. Col. Le Trung Hien of the command said a patrol of Hac Bao, or Black Panther, troops found a complex of 20 structures that contained more than 400,000 rounds of ammunition, large amounts of wire and fuel and five tons of rice. Hien said South Vietnamese rangers, also operating near Khe Sanh, found a smaller cache of North Vietnamese munitions. Together, the finds were the largest uncovered since 13,500 South Vietnamese troops launched a major operation Sept. 6 in the northwest corner of the country below the demilitarized zone. Two British Soldiers Are Shot Down BELFAST, Northern Ireland (AP) — Terrorists shot and killed two British soldiers and seriously wounded five others during the night in different parts of Northern Ireland. At the same time, bombings and outbreaks of shooting at British army patrols and observation posts were reported in Belfast, Londonderry and Dungannon. One civilian seen aiming a rifle at an army post in Londonderry was shot by troops. A military spokesman said the man fell and was dragged away by sympathizers from the Roman Catholic districts of Creggan and Bogsidc. The two soldiers were killed in Belfast and the market town of Dungiven. The other soldiers were wounded in Londonderry. The deaths brought to 104 the number killed in two years in Northern Ireland. Twenty-two soldiers have been killed this year. Pot-Cigarette Survey Told NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Columbia University says it has found in a national survey of youngsters that those who use marijuana are less likely to become cigarette smokers than those who don't. The university's school of public health said Tuesday its survey covered 1,701 youngsters in the 12-17 age bracket from all sections of the nation. Of the surveyed adolescents who have used marijuana 10 times or less, 83 per cent are cigarette smokers. Cigarette usage fell to 64 per cent among those who have used marijuana 60 or more times, the school said. "Apparently, if you smoke pot a lot, who. needs cigarettes," said Dr. Eric Joseph son of Columbia, who reported on the survey at a conference on student drug use. According to the survey, 15 per cent of the youngsters had tried marijuana and 3 per cent used it 60 times or more. More youths in the West, 23 per cent, use marijuana, the survey found. The figure was 20 per cent in the Northeast, J3 per cent in the North Central states and 11 per cent in the Souh. "Somewhat surprisingly, our survey did not produce the expected sex differences in marijuana use," Josephson said. Girls used pot almost as much as boys, the survey found. Children of wealthier parents tend to smoke more marijuana than those from lower income households, the survey report said. TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The secretary of state, Mrs. Elwilll Shanahan, said Tuesday Kansas probably will set aside a day next spring in most counties to promote statewide voter registration. She said results of a poll of county election commissioners her office conducted during a two-day election seminar which wound up here Tuesday showed a wide majority of the commissioners supported the idea. Kansas' new statewide voter registration law passed by the 1971 legislature goes into effect next Jan. 1. It provides for no special registration period, stating that voters may register up until primary election day — the first Tuesday in August — or general election day —- the first. Tuesday in November. Most Favor It Mrs. Shanahan said 69 of 90 county election officials participating in her poll favored publicizing one day in the spring as "statewide voter day." Eight more wanted a one- week period, one wanted three days and 12 wanted no such registration promotion, she said. She said her office would take the recommendation of promoting one day for registration under consideration, and that it is probable one such day will be designated for late April or early May. Not Compulsory Mrs. Shanahan said the counties' participation would not be compulsory, because, "we can't force it on them when the statue is very clear that they may register voters up to primary or general election day." She said some smaller counties with relatively few potential voters felt it would be more convenient for them to register their voters on election day. Kansas has had voter regis- registration, tration in the more populous counties and cities for years, but 39 of the 105 counties have never had any voter rcgistra-l tion. Two Scholarships Mrs. Shanahan was the recipient Tuesday of two $500 scholarship certificates from Robert Flaherty, New York, of News Election Service, the national organization established in 1964 by the three major television networks and two major wire services to collect and compile election returns. Flaherty said Kansas had been selected to receive NES' first scholarships because of the cooperation of Mrs. Shana- hand and local election officials in a pilot project in 1970. Precinct election judges in nine state counties were used to telephone election results directly to NES before county election headquarters had tallied them. Two Women Badly Hurt HAYS— Two out-of-state women were injured seriously Tuesday afternoon when the car in which they were riding collided with a State Highway Commis sion truck three miles west of Hays on 1-70. A Kansas Highway Patrol trooper said Joan Whitacre, 26, New York, N.Y., the driver of a sedan, and Gail Raffel, 26, Del Mar, Calif., a passenger, were admitted to Hadley Regional Medical Center. Joseph Schmidt, Hays, driver of the truck, was treated and released from the hospital. According to the trooper, both vehicles were westbound. When Miss Whitacre lost control of her car, it went into a ditch, struck three posts and returned to the roadway, striking the rear of the state-owned truck. The sedan spun around and wound up in 'the median strip. The truck rolled over once, coming to rest on its wheels in a ditch.
