Will those of allied e n t r e n c h e d Saturday will be American Legion Auxiliary Poppy Day in Grecley. The day is set aside each year to honor the nation's war dead. Significance of the poppy as a memorial flower began more than 50 years ago while the United States was engaged in World War I. Its troops and nations were in defensive positions which ran from Switzerland to the North Sea. Eventually the advancing enemy army was halted by a wail of allied resistance and a counterattack began. American forces advanced over the battlefields of Europe, driving the enemy from occupied territory. But the price of victory was thousands of American lives. Those who paid the price fell among the poppy-covered fields of France and Flanders. When their comrades returned home the poppy was remembered as the symbol of sacrifice these men had been called upon to make. This feeling on the part of returning veterans soon established the national custom of wearing a memorial poppy in honor of the men who did not return. Saturday the women of the American mothers. Legion wives, Auxiliary sisters anc daughters of the men who diec in World War I, World War II the Korean War and the Viet nani conflict -- will ask al Americans to wear a poppy.

Project Wagon Wheel Said Holding Very Little Threat By JOHN VIVIAN Associated Press Writer LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) -- An atomic scientist said Tuesday Project Wagon Wheel in Wyoming's Upper Green River Basin holds litlle threat as a single underground nuclear explosion-to the environment. Dr. Edward A. Martell of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo., added, however, that multiple underground blasts could contaminate air and water and have severe seismic repercussions. Martell agreed substantially with a representative of El Paso Natural Gas Co., Dr. Philip L. Randolph, that the detrimental effects of Wagon Wheel will be minimal. "Our geologists are confident from eight previous wells that movable water in the Pinedale Unit won't be contaminated by ss Back After m by Nader most no city street in America is safe." Muskie, who told reporters he · does not want to "get into a f shouting match on this subject," " had said Tuesday he feels the " report "includes a .personal at- 1 tack on me" and distorts the ; story of pollution-control legisla- ' tion and his role in drafting it. But at his news conference he a declined lo be drawn into a dis- } cussion of the motives and said: ' "I have private and personal " opinions . . . that will remain ' private and personal." ' A statement issued by the n Nader team after Muskie met a detonation," Randolph said during a debate here. He said the bomb would be exploded south of Pinedale deeper than 8,500 feet-- about 1,300 feet below a sandstone formation which serves as a basin for ground water at higher levels. Martell said the possibility o: water or air contamination with radioactive materials is unlikely in "individual, demonstration experiments" such as Wagon Wheel and its predecessors-- Rulison in Colorado and Gasbuddy in New Mexico. "These contamination problems can be kept under contro with a single experiment, but if technology is sufficient for massive numbers of these, there is a question of keeping control," ivisrtGtl S3 id. Martell said the cost and danger involved in underground nuclear stimulation proposals make them nothing more than n expensive playtoy on which ax dollars are wasted. Randolph said Wagon Wheel, : completed, could cost between 57 million and $9 million. According to Martell, projects in the Atomic Energy Commission's Plowshare project have een cancelled or postponed in- lefinilely me by one -- and tha AEC personnel are the bigges iroponents of continuing the Vagon Wheel type projects. "These gas companies wouldn't be in it if they had lo pay the bill," · Randolph said El Paso Natural Gas may never explode a nu- :lear device in the Upper Green liver Basin should tests prove such gas production unworth- while economically.

Randolph noted the 19,000-foot well being drilled has a dual goal--to explore the possibility of a nuclear blast and to see if there is sufficient gas in the area for conventional recovery.

LEDERER Associated Press Writer SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A former psychiatrist with the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency said Wednesday psychiatrists should be included in top administration pol- cy sessions on international crises to present "the irrational aspects of human behavior." I do not presume that a psychiatrist participating in these matters would produce ideal so lutions to all problems," Dr William D. Davidson of Wash ington told the American Psy chiatric Association. "However," he said, "I arr certain that his presentation o: the irrational aspects of human behavior would be of value in avoiding some of the miscalculations of our recent history."
