Lord Nelson HISTORIC MOVE—Going places after 233 years is the historic Carroll-Dovij. House, colonial birthplace of Charles Carroll, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. It was moved six blocks lo St. John's College campus in Annapolis, Md. The house will be reconstructed with $20,000 raised by Historic Annaoolis, Inc. LONDON d?i — Britons paid homage yesterday to a one-armed admiral who died exactly 150 years ago in his moment of triumph, and a modest king who stood at the head of his nation in a later and j even grimmer struggle. This rainy j Trafalgar Day was given over to the memory of Adm. Lord Nelson and the late King George VI. Iii Carlton Gardens, overlooking London's royal processional way, the Mall, Queen Elizabeth II unveiled a bronze statue to her father. Srte recalled his active service with the royal navy in World War I and how he, "like so many other gallant Londoners, stayed in his capital and saw bombs fall on his home" in World War II. The statue shows him bareheaded i in the uniform of an admiral of the ] fleet. Nearby, from Nelson's col-1 unm in the heart of London, Trafal- i gar Square, flags spelled out the I admiral's famous signal: "England i expects that every man will do his) duty." j The same signal fluttered from the yards of HMS Victory in Portsmouth just as it did on Oct. 21, 1805, when Nelson sent his wooden ships against the French and Spanish fleets off the Spanish coast. Bands paraded the decks that ran red with blood that first Trafalgar Day. Adm.^of the Fleet Sir George Creasey laid a wreath on the spot on the quarterdeck where Nelson fell. Bareheaded officers stood again at the place where the mortally wounded Nelson died knowing' the British fleet had won a great victory and frustrated Napoleon's plans for invading Britain.

Iff) — President Cecil Ray Edmonds sayi Southland Racing Corp., ha* been assured of a dog racing franchise, but he won't say who gave the assurance. A letter of assurance Written by former Racing Commission Chair- man.Robert Roach isn't the only assurance the controversial track has, says Edmonds. Roach resigned shortly after his letter was disclosed. The letter was written to the Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington when Southland requested permission to sell stock publicly. Edmonds said Wednesday that Southland would be ready to ask for a franchise next week. Gov. Oval Faubus has said the track won't receive a franchise until a countywlde referendum is held. Plans for a referendum have fallen through twice. j The first planned election, set for i Sept. iTT, was called off when Chancery Court held that public funds couldn't be spent because the election wouldn't IK lengally binding. Another possible election faded out when the Good Citizens League, opponents of the track, turned down a Southland offer to pay for an election. Legend 1 Spiked LOS LUNAS, N. M.

Paint Closeout i Price Hubbard Hardware Spy Chain Kept Eye on Teachers In Argentina BUENOS AIRES I* — Special investigators disclosed yesterday that "a vast spy chain" existed during the regime of ex-President Peron to watch Argentina's teachers and punish those who opposed the government. Teachers said the government went so far as to enlist students as spies. During Pcron's 10 years as dictator, he and his aides lavished gifts on students, organized them into controllable unions and flooded classrooms with textbooks lauding him and his wife, Eva. An unknown number of teachers and university professors were dismissed from their jobs. The provisional government which ousted Peron already has tossed out the Peronista textbooks and ordered pictures and statues of Peron and his wife removed from schools.
