N.H., drag protesters from Rt. 107, near the south entrance to the town's nuclear Lawyers' Panel investigating By GERALD DEMEUSY Hundreds of men and women in Connecticut are representing themselves in ; divorces with various kinds of assistance and are paying only a fraction of what lawyers might charge. : But some enterprising divorce "brokers" and "counselors" are under ; investigation by the statewide grievance committee of the Connecticut Bar Association. That committee has received many complaints, most of them from attorneys. Committee Chairman Joseph F. Skel-ley Jr. of Hartford said the complaints will be met with "some kind of action" by July 1 and said the panel might seek criminal charges against some persons for practicing law without a license. , There is nothing illegal about representing oneself in a divorce action or any other kind of lawsuit, but a non-lawyer's performance of legal service for another is a violation known as "unauthorized practice of law." In one Superior Court case last fall, Judge Simon S. Cohen discovered that messy court papers submitted to him by the plaintiff in a divorce action had been prepared by a friend. Cohen asked the state's attorney's office to investi gate, and that office passed his complaint along to Skelley. Those who hesitate to conduct their own divorce cases from start to finish can seek help from many legitimate agencies. For people without funds, legal aid organizations will supply free self-help kits, which provide guidance through the legal intricacies of divorce cases. If a divorce becomes complicated, the legal aid organization can supply a lawyer. The Legal Aid Society in Hartford said it is "swamped" with requests for help in divorce actions. The New Haven Legal Aid Association reports brisk sales of $4 self-help kits and runs free self-help classes for men and women every two months. Self-help workshops are also conduct-See Lawyers', Page 4 Orthodox Faiths, Vatican To Talk on Unity . VATICAN CITY (UPI) -Pope John Paul II Sunday announced Roman Catholic and Orthodox theologians would begin talks this week aimed at reunification of Christian churches that split almost 1,000 years ago. Speaking to about 50,000 people in St. Peter's Square, the pope said the Christian unity meetings would begin Thursday at Patmos, the Aegean island where the apostle St. John is said to have written the final books of the New Testament in the first century A.D. A special Roman Catholic-Orthodox study commission was created last November when the pope visited Orthodox Patriarch Demetrios I of Constantinople in Turkey.

Sporadic shooting was heard on the city's outskirts. Residents of Kwangju, located 170 miles south of Seoul, were turning out for the ninth day of anti-government demonstrations while armed youths maintained control of the city's downtown areas. Fully armed troops were staging a show of force as they pressed forward along major approaches to the city, apparently hoping to recapture it without a major bloodbath. Armed rioters had already with drawn from Kwangju's southern and western outskirts where they had put up barricades while confronting army troops. As the troops recaptured part of the suburban areas they conducted house searches to find weapons and suspected rioters. About 10,000 soldiers reportedly have been deployed around the city of 800,000 people, South Korea's fourth largest, waiting for the order to move against armed militants in control for the ninth consecutive day. Some 100 people already have been killed and more than 460 others injured in demonstrations by protesters demanding an end to martial law. On Sunday, President Choi Kyu-hah appealed to the militants to lay down their weapons and surrender amid indications of an imminent army attack., Foreigners were advised to leave the city. "The government will extend the maximum leniency and forgive all you did," Choi said in a radio message broadcast from a military base near Kwangju. "Let us forget the past and join hands to recover from the shock." The demonstrators have turned in about 2,500 weapons, mostly M-l and carbine rifles, to a crisis settlement committee composed of student representatives and civic and religious leaders. However, the weapons are still kept at the provincial government logue brings us again to full communion and the celebration of the eucharist, the only sacrifice of our single and common Lord," the pope said of his meeting with Demetrios. The Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches split in the year 1054 in a dispute over the authority of the pope, the granting of indulgences and the Western church's special veneration of Jesus' mother, Mary. The Orthodox churches, which claim an estimated 200 million followers worldwide, believe they are led by their bishops, and not by the pope in Rome.-Their churches Include the Greek Orthodox, the Romanian Orthodox and Russian Orthodox churches. Roman Catholic doctrine holds the pope supreme among all Christian bishops and infallible when speaking on matters of faith and morals. Though the doctrine of papal infalli- See Churches, Page 4 20 Obituaries 8 10 Sketches 19 32 Sports 33 11 Sydney Omarr 19 22 Television 39 6 Weather 31 38 ..20 m I iwrtWil iIMW A. holding which is under rioters' control. Paratroopers were seen being dropped by parachute Sunday in the hills and rugged mountains around Kwangju in an apparent move to prevent an estimated 200 to 300 hard-core militants from escaping, unofficial reports said. There were "many casualties" Sunday in a bloody clash between armed militants who ousted moderates from government buildings, the martial law command said. Choi said that as chief of state he felt fully responsible for the Kwangju incident which is feared to develop into a. situation that could affect the unity of the nation in the face of a growing military threat from North Korea. . Just before Choi's appeal, the martial law command issued a statement ex plaining why a "quick" military inter vention is needed to end the rioting in Kwangju. "Plagued by horror and uneasiness, most citizens of Kwangju want a quick military intervention of martial law forces to restore order in the city," the statement said. Engineers Command Lead For 1980 Job Prospects By STEPHANIE SEVICK Employment opportunities for the 1980 graduate with a degree in liberal arts are few, but for those with degrees in computer science, engineering, accounting and health, the job prospects are excellent. A 23 percent increase in the need for engineers over the next decade is forecast in a report by the New England Regional Office of the U.S. Department of Labor. All types of engineering graduates chemical, mechanical, industrial, civil and electrical are being strongly recruited by New England industries. Engineers also command among the highest salaries among 1980 graduates averaging about $22,000 per year. The report says that in contrast to economic downturns in 1969 and 1973, when many engineers were out of work, engineering employment is now more stable. Since 1973, the report explains, the industrial mix Of New England industries has been weighted toward electronics and computer manufacturing, which tend to employ a variety of engineers as well as computer specialists. "The present and future job outlook for graduates in computer science is excellent, with the recruiting demand far exceeding the available supply," the report says. Computer science and math majors can expect to earn starting salaries between $15,500 and $18,000. For the liberal arts graduate, according to the report, the outlook is seen as Today's Chuckle One cleaning woman to another, In a deserted office building: "We'd better check the phones there's usually somebody on 'hold'."

' The Hartford Memorial Day parade honoring veterans, Gold Star mothers and the parents of those now serving in the military will start today in the city's West End at 11 a.m. and end at the reviewing stand in front of the Civic Center.

"In the finance and insurance sector," the report says, "firms will hire graduates in liberal arts providing the candidate has a logical mind and the ability to solve problems which are ascertained through a series of tests." For education graduates the report predicts little improvement "Despite a steady decrease in the number of education graduates a narrow market exists due to a continued decline in school enrollments coupled with municipal budgetary restraints," the report says.

Story on Page 5 VANCOUVER, Wash. (UPI) Mount St. Helens exploded again Sunday in a major eruption that shot ash as high as nine miles and blackened skies from as far south as Portland, Ore., to the northern population centers of Pu-get Sound. Ash in the upper atmosphere drifted about 200 miles north over British Columbia. No new casualties were reported from the eruption, which scientists said was the most serious since the mountain's violent explosion a week ago, which ripped off the top of the mountain and claimed at least 32 lives. But the ash fallout was enough to force a halt to the search operations for 76 persons still missing from the May 18 explosion. Officials advised residents of Cougar, eight miles southwest of the crater, and Toutle, about 26 miles northwest of the volcano, to evacuate because of the ash. Several airlines scrubbed flights from Portland and the Federal Aviation Administration barred instrument flights from Seattle to Portland, over the Olympic Peninsula and along the Washington coast. The new eruption began at 2:39 a.m. and was accompanied by harmonic tremors. Forest service aerial observers said they could see the new plume of ash rising to 45,000 feet and ' pulsing at 10-minute intervals like a steam engine." The fallout was heavy enough to cause highway closures and knock out power in parts of two counties, and travelers' warnings were posted in more than a dozen other Washington and Oregon counties, particularly along Annhurst College Closes With 36th Graduation ; By MARK McGRATH WOODSTOCK Annhurst College; eulogized by a student as "a home," by a nun as "a dream come true" and by a bishop as "a moment in the history of salvation," closed out its 39-year history in commencement exercises Sunday. A coeducational Catholic liberal arts college, Annhurst announced in February it was closing this month because of declining enrollment and a debt of $4 million. The small school in the wooded hills of northeastern Connecticut had a reputation for high academic standards and a strict moral code. The 36th commencement exercises of the college were held, in Annhurst's Cultural Center, one of several buildings constructed on the 180-acre cam- Fius in the 1960s while the student popu-ation was increasing. The new buildings became a financial burden on the school with the enrollment decline of recent years. Annhurst was foundsd by the Daughters of the Holy Spirit, and it was originally a women's college. The order is now trying to sell the campus. " The Most Rev. Daniel P. Reilly, bishop of Norwich, told the 68 graduates and their teachers and families, "Annhurst does not close today, for it is not a place, but it is persons: persons in love, persons in love with life, persons in love with each other, and persons in love with God, and in so many places, life will spring from this seeming death." Annhurst, he said, "was born, it peaked, and now it dies." Swinging in the Sun warm holiday afternoon Sunday at the King the Columbia River, which divides the two states. Streets and sidewalks in Portland were dusted with gray ash. In Lincoln City, on the Oregon coast, all face masks at a grocery store and drugstore were sold quickly.

(UPI) Two strong earthquakes rocked nearly the entire state of California and parts of Nevada Sunday, triggering rock-slides that injured a number of hikers, cracking walls and roadways and causing buildings to sway in Sacramento and Los Angeles. At least eight persons were injured, two seriously, and there were widespread reports in central California of cracked walls, smashed windows and broken water lines. Seismologists at California Institute of Technology in Pasadena and the University of California in Berkeley said both quakes were centered 180 miles east of Berkeley in the Mammoth Lakes area near Yosemite National Park and measured 6.0 on the Richter scale. The first temblor hit at 9:34 a.m. and the second rocked the state at 12:45 See 2 Quakes, Page 4 "Only Jesus is indispensable," Reilly said, "Annhurst is a moment in the his tory of salvation. ,rAn important moment, yes, he added. . Reilly said Annhurst "played its part in salvation, and now leaves. Jesus goes on, he saves. Annhurst helped him in a very special way." Joan Barton of Johnsonville, N.Y., f iresident of the senior class, said she oved Annhurst for "its smallness," and for the opportunity it provided for students to become involved with a wide range of activities and develop leadership qualities. Annhurst, said Miss Barton, became "a home" for her. The news of the school's closing was a shock to her because "it was like being told I could never go home again," she said. "I am saddened at the thought that Eeople will no longer be able to grow up ere," she said. "We've all grown up here at Annhurst. "Live on in the spirit of Annhurst," she exhorted her classmates. "Teach it to your children." Sister Claire Pelletier, a provincial superior in the Daughters of the Holy Spirit, recalled how her order started the college as a Christian college where women could get equal opportunity in higher education. Most such schools were established for men, she said. The decision to start the college during World War II was "a risk, a daring venture," said Sister Claire, who said See Final, Page 4 COUKANT PHOTO BY TONY BACKWICZ Philip School Fair in West Hartford.
