The noted naturalist lectured to approximately 5fl persons during a Friday morning session. He spoke on the balance that science must achieve so live .with his achievements he that man may endure for more than the present generation. "The public is paying the bill and has a right to know where the money is being spent," said Eiseley, ".but on the other hand Paul Roberts Paul Irwin Roberts. 903 5th St. died Friday in his home.

Denver police said Ernest E. McCarty, 68, of Denver, died Sunday in a Denver hospital of injuries received in the March 27 accident. , A c c o r d i n g o f officials McCarty's auto apparently became stalled on railroad tracks and Ihe auto and driver were carried 326 feet from the point of impact when hit by a Denver Rio Grande Western locomotive. Three accidents claimed the lives of five persons over the weekend. The victims were W i l l i a m L.i Nelley, 22, and Estrada M.' Reyes, 23, both of Fort Carson Army Base; Terry F. Stevens, 18, Castle Rock, Colo.; and Benjamin Lee Thompson, 18, and David Wayne Gowen, 18, both of Boulder, Colo.

Reyes, a passenger, was killed in the accident. :he public must be an educated and informed people." He added that many times the general public considers science .0 work like magic. "If we pollute Lake Michigan, jeople think scientists can find a cure. Unforlunately, scientists can solve problems but they can also create them,'" said Eiseley. 'This often occurs in a geometric ratio, and if man is to must plan them better than he las done." He added thai he felt that :liis cultural drag in a t t i t u d e toward science is largely because of the lack, of effort on the part of the mass media: "The media shows the public House Group Gives- Property Tax Limitation Bill More Thought By GORDON G, GAUSS Associated Press Writer DENVER (AP) -- A property tax limitation bill opposed by Gov.
