ISA -- August 17, 1975*S«a4iY Cfrirteifc* West 65-Year Wait For Funeral Ends CAZADERO, Calif. (AP) - The Kendall family's fo-year-long wait for a funeral finally ended Saturday as scores of townspeople and tourists in this tiny resort community turned out to bury them in style. "We're going to quit our crazy foolin'around and get them in the ground,' sang Dean Forshee, 19, as two pottery urns bearing the ashes of Tom, Enoch and Eura Kendall were lowered into a donated cemetery vault. * ** THE ASHES had languished in two quart jars in the attic of the Cazadero General Store since 1910, when someone hacked rancher Tom Kendall and his aged parents to pieces, cremated them and fed some of the remains to the pigs. The chief suspect vanished and the crime remained officially unsolved. The ashes were all but forgotten until Rex Nance bought the store last year and found the ashes last March. The urns were placed in an antique carriage and pulled by two mules a fifth of a mile down to the burial site along the only street in Cazadero, a town of 150 persons 85 miles north of San Francisco. Attending the urns were Martha Schneider, 76, and Sue Boone, 60, long time residents of the town who wore black mourning apparel and carried funeral wreaths on their laps. The sun shone from a cloudless sky. . The crowd, far removed in time from the violence more than six decades earlier, was subdued and respectful. About 60 men, women and children followed the carriage while another dozen flanked the route snapping pictures. * ** "THE KENDALL FAMILY was fond of the town and since there are no known next of kin, it's only fitting that the town give them a decent burial," eulogized Gary Rodgers, unofficial town historian. After the eulogy he recited a short prayer. Rodgers and Nance arranged the burial with the help of local citizens. The urns were fashioned by a local potter and the vault was donated by a local construction firm. The funeral almost was delayed further when county health officials revoked a burial permit because there were no next of kin or death records on file. "But they realized that they didn't really need a permit since there's no record that these are human remains,'' said Anthony Sanf ilippo, administrative assistant at the county health department. Constellation Catastrophe Occurring AT.Y. Time* Service NEW YORK - Far out in the constellation Orion something catastrophic is occurring. While the nature of the phenomenon is unknown, it has generated ray emissions that in recent days have reached an intensity five times greater than any ever observed in the heavens. Observatories in many parts of the world have been alerted and are trying to locate the source optically or observe it at radio wavelengths. The original observation was made two weeks ago by the British satellite Ariel 5, launched into earth orbit last October from the Italian space launching platform in the sea off Kenya. At the time the ray emissions were weak. Their intensity, however, has since increased rapidly. The emissions have been recorded by SAS-3, the Small Astronomy Satellite launched from the same platform a few months ago. At the Massachusetts Institute of Technology center, where a continuous watch is being kept on data from SAS-3, Dr. Terry Matilsky said that when the emissions were first observed, "we couldn't believe it." It was assumed they came from the sun, which recently has been active and emitting Xray. IRA Official Wing Asks Talks BELFAST. Northern Ireland tAP; The Official wing of the Irish Republican Army appealed Saturday for peace talks among all militant organizations to end the violence that left 11 persons dead and more than 200 injured last week. A spokesman for the Ulster Defense Assn.. the largest Protestant paramilitary group, said Protestant militants would meet Monday to discuss the proposal, but he offered little hope that an agreement could be reached. The Official wing of the IRA has observed a truce for several years. The rival Provisional wing of the IRA began a cease-fire Feb. 10. Protestant politicians had launched a compaign Friday to get Britain to end its unofficial cease-fire agreement with the IRA Provisionals, and the Protestant Ulster Volunteer Force has declared a one- week ultimatum for the cease-fire to end or it will consider all-out war with the IRA. In the latest violence, a Catholic man was seriously wounded when three gun' men dragged him from his car in Belfast's Crumlin Road and shot him in the head, police said. One of three persons killed Friday night - Orange Delumped JERUSALEM (API-Scientists at Hebrew University have discovered that if a lumpy orange is sprayed with growth re- --· tardant while it's on the tree it will develop a smooth peel attractive to consumers. was a 36-year-old Protestant municipal worker who was beaten up and shot five times in the head when he entered the Catholic Falls Road area of Belfast to help repair damage from a car bomb explosion. The blast injured 48 persons. Another Protestant was killed and 33 injured in a car bomb blast outside a bar in Derryaghy. south of BeJfast. The body of Friday's third victim was found by British troops near the border town of Newton Hamilton in County Armagh. Eight other persons were killed and another 125 wounded in various attacks throughout the province last week. What can you do when you want extra money?

William Middendorf II says the United States will need a fleet of at least 600 warships by 1980 to preserve its security at home and abroad. He told a district Kiwanis meeting Friday night that the Navy's active fleet has dropped from nearly 1,000 ships six years ago to 482 now. "We in the U.S. Navy are at times criticized for interjecting notes of competition with the Soviet navy in order to justify Navy programs. The facts speak differently," Middendorf said. 900 Virginia St. East Interior decorating and design Phone 345-1130 BOLL FURNITURE Shnn M o n t h l y ' t i l ! ) Tuesday-Sat urclav t i l . ) chair, Yeg. $605. ..
