Emmet Demos Caucus i John C. Lazaris, EmmetCoun- ty Democratic Chairman announced today that the precinct caucuses for Emmet County will be held at 8 p.m. Monday. . Iowa is the "weather-vane" state of the nation in 1972. Iowa's precinct caucuses are the earliest in the whole country and thus will be the first meaningful indication of the 1972 presidential campaign. The presidential results will be known by the next day on the state wide level. The caucuses are open to eligible voters, residents withinthe precinct and supporters of the Democratic party. There will be caucuses in most of the county's precincts this year. ; Monday nighf s caucuses will elect delegates and alternates to the Feb. 26 county convention. The number, of delegates and alternates from each precinct and the total number of delegates to the county convention have been determined by a formula according to the Democratic vote iin the county for Robert Fulton, candidate for governor, in the 1970 general election. Delegates and alternates will be elected to both the statutory and presidential portions of the county convention. Also, the precinct caucuses will elect new precinct men and precinct women to sit in the new central committee of the county. The county convention of Feb. 26 will elect delegates and alternates to the district statutory and presidential convention to be held in, Storm Lake on March 25th. From there, the delegates will be elected to the state conventions. The state statutory conventions will be on April 22 and the state presidential will be on May 20. The presidential conventions will carry out the process of determining the support among the presidential candidates to be reflected in Iowa's delegation to the Democratic national convention in Miami on July 9. The conventions for the first time this year will operate under proportion representation rather than majority rule. That change was made as part of the reform movement in the Democratic parly since 1968. Even if a majority of the county convention votes support a single candidate, minority delegations for other candidates would have a .right to participate in the district arid state conventions barf*ed on the amount of support for their candidates at the county convention.

SANTA CATALINA ISLAND, Calif. CAP) - A trio of sea lions will swim its way into medical history in the waters off this sun-drenched resort island. Diving long and deep, the sea lions will carry electronic snoopers that ferret out secrets of their adaptation to the underwater world. The secrets will be analyzed by University of Southern California physiologists who wonder how man might cope better with the stresses of an alien environment. The scientists know that as man extends his reach beneath the seas, it's imperative he understand his responses to the underwater environment. The scientists say the sea lions will make a significant contribution because they stand at an evolutionary crossroads. They once were exclusively land animals, but after millions of years of evolution they are terrestrial animals who spend most of their time in water. "We want to look at the way the sea lion's cardiovascular regulatory mechanism has changed to meet the challenge of evolution from land to sea," explained Dr. Chris Stevens. That's where Samantha, Elwood and Bruthie come in. Samantha, a sleek, black beauty of four years, is the star at present, reigning over a wire mesh enclosed raft anchored in Big Fisherman's Cove here. Elwood and Bruthie await their debut in pens on the nearby shore. Samantha has blood pressure sensors implanted in her chest and abdomen. During experiments she swims in the sea wearing a harness with a box. The box is filled with electronic devices which connect to the sensors and monitor changes in the cardiovascular system. When a diver jumps into the water, sometimes deadly stresses develop. The heartbeat slows and becomes irregular. The heart can become dangerously gorged with blood. Gases in the air in the lungs dissolve in the blood but can turn to bubbles if the diver ascends too rapidly, causing the crippling and sometimes fatal bends. But a sea lion can hold its breath, dive to 750 feet, swim around several minutes and then zip back to the surface, all effortlessly. To do this, he slows his heartbeat to as much as one-tenth of normal. Blood vessels in the "exercising mus venting undesirable gas exchange with the blood. The scientists want to know how the sea lion makes such changes. "We're a long way from definitive answers," Stevens said. "But we've found these little animals have a great deal to tell us and we're just beginning to scratch the surface."

China WASHINGTON (AP) - The standard administration explanation for the differing U.S. po^cies for Cuba and China is, as President Nixon stated it, (that "Cuba is engaged in a constant program of belligerence toward the United States." The difference regarding China, the President said recently, is that "at this particular time, we have some evidence, that the Chinese are now ready to talk about their role in Asia and our role in Asia." But other reasons are outlined privately by some administration officials, reasons that more nearly mirror the reality of world politics and special U.S. interests. This is almost self-evident as the Chinese continue their direct military and economic aid to North Vietnam, accompanied by continued verbal attacks on the U.S. role in Southeast Asia and Taiwan. Whether or not Nixon chooses to call this "belligerence," it is clear he feels important national gains are to be achieved by seeking a diplomatic relaxation with Peking. It is equally clear he sees no percentage at this time in improving U.S. relations with Fidel Castro's government. In fact, the President can point to his constant, strong opposition to an aggressive Communist regime in Cuba in an effort to ease the sting of conservative attacks on his new China policy. Internationally, by snubbing Castro and playing up charges of Cuban revolutionary intent, Nixon is able to maintain leverage with Western Hemisphere nations and obtain their support on other issues. Administration officials, in acknowledging these positions, add that Castro still is a threat to'peace in Latin America and deserves the U.S. hostility. They say he has not changed his goals of sparking revolution throughout the hemisphere. The officials deny any serious weakening of the anti-Castro stand taken years ago by the Organization of American States, which imposed mandatory sanctions against any diplomatic and economic dealings with Cuba. Even the Soviet role in Cuba brings no alarm to adminis­ tration officials who are convinced Moscow is not threatening U.S. strength in the area. And they say relations between Russia and Cuba are not at their best, with Castro fighting any overwhelming Soviet influence on his government. Thus, U.S. experts say, there is no reason for the United States to make any overtures aimed at driving a wedge between Moscow and Havana. All in all, that attitude marks the general U.S. feeling about Cuba: The Castro government serves more purpose by being kept at arm's length. And, until Washington stands to gain, there will be no China-like moves toward conciliation with Cuba.
