Page 6 Parent Charged Child Kept Prisoner Most Of Life; has Chance to Lead formal Life after Therapy ARCADIA, Calif. (UP'IV- Susan Wiley, 13, is deformed, unable to talk, wears diapers and has the mental capacity of .an infant. ';• But if she could have led a normal life, doctors said Monday, there would be no medical reason for her retardation. Susan's parents, Clark Wiley, 70, and his wife Irene, 50, were arrested Monday and charged with keeping the girl a prisoner in their home for almost her whole life. Susan was taken to Children's Hospital in nearby Los Angeles, where a spokesman said she had a chance to become a normal teen-ager. Corrective therapy was expected to take two years. Police Sgt Bill .Culbertson said Susan lived in almost total confinement in her room the past 13 years and had almost no contact with the outside ITS FUN TO PLAY when you shop with CHRISTMAS CLUB CASH!

Miss Lurene Albert, office director of the County Department of Public Social Services, said the family applied for welfare aid and an eligibility worker was sent to their home. The worker saw the girl during that visit and reported it to authorities last Tuesday when an investigation was begun. Culbertson said the girl apparentlz suffered from malnutrition for years. He said it was learned that she was fed only once or twice a day, with a diet consisting of warm cereal, milk, honey and an occasional egg. Wiley was freed on $1,250 bond. His wife remained in custody. They are specifically charged with willful cruelty toward a childn a felony. Doctors Discuss Progress Doctors said Suan appeared to have the physical development of a 9 or 10 year old girl, but mentaly she apparently never progressed beyond the infant stage. She spent so much time in a seated position that her leg muscles were deformed. Authorities said she walked with an uncertain, shuffling gait. Except for occasionally sitting on the front porch of the modest two-bedroom home or walking in the yard, Susan spent all her life insude the house, said Sgt. Frank Linley of the sheriffs juvenile detail. Linley said neighbors der scribed the Wileys as a strange family who "kept very much to themselves." Authorities said they knew of motive for the confinement. "I've been asking myself that question for a week now," linley said. The Wileys, neither of whom has a police record, were to be arraigned Friday morning. A son John, 18, was sent to live with his grandparents following the arrest of his parents. obituaries Stanley E.

THE TIPTON (INDIANA) DAILY TRIBUNE Soviet Lunar landing a Success TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1970 By DAVID NAGY - MOSCOW (UPI>- An eight- wheeled Soviet moonwalker laden with flags, pennants and a portrait of Lenin today became the first manmade object to propel itself across the lunar surface. The Soviet news agency Tass said the 20-yard journey of "Lunokhod 1" (Moonwalkarl) was accomplished under earth? • bound remote control beginning at 9:28 a.m. (1:28 a.m. EST) when the'device crawled down a special ramp from its lunar lander. "Flags and pennants with the coat of arms of the Soviet Union and Lenin's bas-relief were put up oh the Lunokhod 1 and the landing stage," Tass said. Besides that, the mooncraw- ler carried television, radio and Drench-made laser beam apparatuses to scan the moon's surface and send telemetry data back toward earth. A description of the moonwalker's trip on Moscow Radio said it travelled "at the first speed," indicating that the device was capable of various speeds. Nothing in the Tass report indicated whether the Lunokhod will attempt a return to earth or whether it will carry out any moonscooping functions like its predecessor, Luna 16. Nor did it indicate the size or weight of the vehicle. Luna 17 softlanded in the Sea of Rains at 6:47 a.m. Moscow time (10:47 p.m. EST Tuesday). It was launched a week ago. The feat was a new space first for the Soviets and Ooscow radio declared that it is "a new effective means for the exploration of the moon by automatic methods."

The only obstacle standing in Frazier's why is the 6-foot-3 '/2 inch Foster. Clay, making a comeback after being stripped of the title and banned from boxing in 1964, must dispose of Argentine Oscar Bonavena on Dec. 7, and also be successful on an appeal of his draft evasion conviction. His case is currently before the Supreme Court, and the Justice Department Monday asked for a speedy decision that could jar any hopes for the $10-million showdown between the "unbeaten champions" next year. Although the. 26-year-old Frazier is a 5-1 favorite to remove the obstacle from his path, the Philadelphiavn never trained harder for any fight. Foster will be the biggest man Frazier has faced since he beat a Russian while winning the heavyweight gold medal in the 1964 Olympics, and as the 5- -foot-llVs inch fighter relaxed after his final workout Monday one of the songs he recorded blared In the background.

Chile re-established formal ties with Castro Cuba, and Italy became the most recent of the Western nations to recognize Red China. The fact that both Cuba and mainland China are Communist nations is of less importance in OEast. ATTENTION BASKETBALL FANS! Four days after announcement of the ' Italian-Chinese accord, Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko arrived in Rome, with one of his assignments presumably to assess its possible effects on the Soviet future in the Mediterranean and the Middle * Villanova Wins (Continued from page 4) Fredericks, followed by Jerry Richey of Pittsburgh, Smith, Tom Donahue of Manhattan, Mason, Howell Michael of William & Mary, Tom Spengler of Harvard and Randall Fields of William 4 Mary.

The Chilean action breached the front set up by the Organization of American States (OAS' 1 against Cuba in 1964, with the United States the prime mover. While the anti-Cuba front never was recognized by Mexico, other members bound themselves to suspension of diplomatic and trade relations with Cuba until, by two-thirds vote, it was determined that Cuba "No longer posed a thrreat to the peace and security of the hemisphere." Similar Action Expected With Chile now leading the way, similar action may be expected from others. Bolivia, Peru and some of the former British colonies of the Caribbean are among those who have expressed a wish that Cuba be returned to the American hemisphere family of nations. The isolation which the United States sought to impose on Cuba made it expensive for Russia but did not lead to the fall or even the serious weakening of the Castro regime as hoped. It never won cooperation from U.S. Allies in NATO, from Spain or from Japan, the latter presumably the United States" best friend in the Pacific. The Russians, had reason to fear the Sino-Italian accord was only that small portion of the iceberg appearing above the water line. There were suggestions that similar agreements could be expected between the Red Chinese and both Lebanon and Ethiopia. -• Italy, together with Albania, .would give the Chiuese a second and for more important observation post in the central Mediterranean for the opportunity it would afford to watch both the NATO and Soviet Mediterranean fleets. Importance is Obvious Lebanon's importance is aob- vious as a Mideast communications and intelligence center. It also could ease Chinese problems in arms aid to Palestine guerrillas. Ethiopia is both close to the Middle East and to those areas of East Africa where the, Chinese have been having the most success in their struggle for influence against.the Soviet Union and the United States. Soon to confront both the United States and the Soviet Union will be the question what to do now about policies which have not proved notably suc- . cessful. And to the Soviet Union perhaps the cruelest blow of all — speculation in New Delhi that India soon may recognize Albania, smallest and most vocal of Soviet crities within the European Communist bloc.
