(AP Wirephoto) MEMBER AMERICAN GEM SOCIETY FABULOUS EGGS Is Easter Sunday an occasion for gift giving in your home? I iswith'manyof our friends. Ill: a joyous day, after all, befittin of presents and cheer. Alexander III, Czar Of Al The Russlas, in the lat Nineteenth Century, had a tradition of giving eggs a Easter. But what fabulous eggs they were! They were designed by the tamous jewelry maker and goldsmith, Faberge Faberge suggested to the Czar that he surprise the Czarina on Easter .morning with an Im perial .Egg. The idea pleased the Czar and the first of the legendary Faberge eggs was ordered. The first egg was made of silver and enameled an opaque whitetosimulate an actual egg. It was exactly egg size. Inside was a yellow yolk which opened lo disclose a varicolored gold hen sitting on a cream velvet cushion. When the hen was removed, the cushion opened to reveal a replica of the imperial crown inside of which hung a tiny ruby egg. The Czarina was enchanted. Faberge made a total of fifty- seven eggs for the Czarina and for the Dowager Empress. Some have been destroyed and others remain to be rediscovered. The famous Peacock Egg has rock crystal panels which open to reveal a gold and enamel peacock sitting in a tree. The peacock can be removed and has a little button, which, when pushed, causes the peacock to strut about, lifting and lowering' its brightly enameled feathers. Faberge eggs depict the R e s u r r e c t i o n , R u s s i a n coronations, the birth of the heir to the Russian throne . . . even the Trans-Siberian Railway. This egg had a subminiature working model train. We don't stock Faberge eggs, but we do have many gifts appropriate for Easter. 8th and 8th In the Greeley 'National Bank Bldg. 352-7014 Skylab 2 and 3 crews are to rocket up to the' same station each for a 56-day stay in orbit. They'll have many comforts not available to earlier Amer ica astronauts. Each has his own bedroom, and there's a pantry, shower, stereo, a li brary and exercise gear. The National Aeronautics anc Space Administration hopes Skylab will determine how we! man can work and live in space for long periods. The knowledge will set guidelines for more permanent space stations of the future and for possible long-du ration voyages to Mars. The presence of Kerwin wil! permit extensive checks ol health and evaluation of any medical problems lhat might arise. The Skylab launching nears as mystery continues to sur round the launch of Russia's second space station, Salyut 2, hoisted into orbit April 3. Last week, in its first statement since the launch, the Soviet government said Salyut was functioning normally, but the government gave no indication when or if a space crew would be sent to join the space station. In the courts DISTRICT COURT Decreed Delinquent A Gill boy, 17, was decreed a juvenile delinquent by Judge Robert A. Behrman after the court found allegations the youth had broken into a fort Lupton department store last Nov. 29 were supported by the evidence presented to the court. Judge Behrman put the boy on probation for a period not to exceed two years and ordered him lo make restitution of $47.50 for window breakage at the store. A Greeley hoy, 12, was decreed to be a child in need of lupervision. Judge Behrman committed the boy to the State Department of Institutions for placement. The boy was accused of taking a motor vehicle last Dec. 24 without the consent of the owner and damaging the vehicle in an amount over $100. The car hit a power pole and 'ence, resulting in about $350 damage, records in the case said. Judge Behrman found the boy rartly admitted the allegations ind the evidence supported the charges. The "Sooner" name for the ;tale of Oklahoma came about rom homesteaders waiting for he gun to signal the beginning f the Oklahoma land grant in 893. Some settlers crossed the no ahead of the official signal nri were known as "sooners."

(AP) Police here say they are holding a man for investigation after he allegedly commandeered a string of four locomotive engines and crashed them into an oncoming train. A crewman on the oncoming train, Paul Basham, 46, Kansas City, Kan., jumped to avoid the collision and was struck and killed by a third train passing on another track. Police say a four-locomotive Norfolk and Western Railroad train was commandeered by a man they identified as Gary W. Hurst, 21, no permanent address. Police say Hurst told them he was waiting to catch an eastbound freight for Chicago and when one failed to come along, he climbed on board the Norfolk engine and started it. The train ran for about 3'/2 miles through switching yards at speeds up to 40 miles an hour. Harris of Oklahoma. The Harris group, claiming 25,000 enlistees, and other reform advocates have yet to agree on precise proposals for tax change. But they agree on one thing: The working man pays too much, the corporate giants loo lillle. Harris planned (o illuslrate that point by conferring a "Tax _Avoider" award upon Inter- national Telephone Telegraph, Corp. during his schedule^, speech to an afternoon tax-^ payers' rally in front of the New York Stock Exchange. , , t ITT, said Harris, paid $20.2' million in federal taxes in 1971 while reporting profits that' year of $413.9 million--for an effective lax rale of only 4.J per cenl.
