114 Jumbo Squash Daniel Haggard of Fort Mead, Fla., isn't telline his secret for growing gigantic sauash. This one weighs 132'/z pounds and measures 73 inches around; plants in his garden yielded 70-pound squash. (AP Wirephoto) U.S., France Begin Joint Sea Research By Alain Raymond Agence France-Preste PARIS -- A joint undersea mission by the United States and France that could yield important scientific results begins off the Azores today. Coded "Operation FAMOUS" (French-American Mid-Ocean Undersea Survey), the mission will take place at a depth of about 10,000 feet some 200 miles f r o m the Azores. . Three underwater craft will collect as much data as they can on the ocean bed in the area. The results could rival the Apollo space program in importance, scientists of the two countries believe. * * * THE OCEAN BED is made up of rigid plates that move in relation to each other at a speed of a few centimeters a year. The plates slide on the lava Elected Rodney K. Smith has been elected national president of the American Business Club, a national civic club that provides scholarships for therapists.

Vanishes In Geneva SUNDAY MONDAY OHNOAIIY10-10 SUNDAY 1*7 CREDIT CARD OR MASTER CHARGE TOO K mart Blasts Rising Prices with these Fantastic Discounts Agence France-Presse GENEVA-AIexander Sol- zhenitsyn's book "The Gulag Archipelago," ah expose of Stalinist prison camps, has disappeared from newsstands in the United Nations European Headquarters here. The French translation of "Gulag" was published earlier this week in Switzerland, where Sotehenitsyn is now living. It was on sale on Wednesday and Thursday in the U. N. building, the Palais des Nar tions. On Friday it was no longer available. A U. N. spokesman said that no pressure had been brought to bear on Naville S. A., the private distributor which runs .the newsstands on concession from the United Nations. "However," the spokesman added, "It is the custom for newsstands not to sell any work which is liable to offend a U. N. member state. We took no action, but it is likely that a Naville representative intervened to see that UK cop' ies already sold were not re- olaccd." ' Off icials of Naville S. A. refused to comment of rocks in a state of fusion. Between the plates there are fissures rather like the lines around a tennis ball. At some points the plates move aw?y from, each other, leaving a gap through which the rocks pierce, then cool off and form part of the earth's crust. The scientists in charge-of "Operation FAMOUS" will be paying special attention to these zones between the plates. The French bathyscaphe Archimede, which last year acted as pathfinder for the mission by diving seven times, the diving craft Cyana and the submarine Alvin will participate in the program. The vessels will be working along a ridge in mid-Atlantic. Last year's seven dives by the Archimede confirmed that volcanic activity had taken place recently. But .the divers saw no eruption going on. This year/the Archimede, Cyana and Alvin hope to make some 60 dives in all during the mission, which lasts until September, but Claude Riffaud, head of the Breton Oceanolo- gy Center, has said the figure will not be attained if there are equipment breakdowns or the weather is anything but ideal. Each time they dive, the crews will spend three to eight hours in their tight surroundings. The'aquanauts will not be able to see very far through their windows. Outside it is as black as in outer space and searchlights can reach only two or three yards --. enough to light up the side of an underwater cliff or part of a volcano or a few bits of seaweed. A total of 200 people are engaged in "Operation FAMOUS" 120 Frenchmen and 60 Americans. They include eight French scientists and five American scientists. THE CRAFT will operate spaced out at five- or ten-mile intervals to avoid interfering with each other acoustically. Every evening there will be a radio roll-call, when the crews will swap news of their work with scientists and prepare forthcoming dives. The French-American team also will map the ocean bed. When the Archimede carried out its seven dives last year, this proved a more complicated task than had been expected.
