DE,LONG UPI Space Writer in ^ HOUSTON (UPI)— Evidence pried from lunar soil and rocks has cast discredit oh one of three major theories] about the origin of the moon— the one.. that says „it split off fro the earth. • \~ \ j'' ' To a number of leading scientists at the opening session Mondayof the second annual lunar science . conference | this theory, which until recently held the. No. 2 ; spot, is fading fro the scene. 11 Dr. Charles P. Sonnett of the U.S. space | agency's -Ames Research Center in Mountainview, Calif., said thej question now is whether the moon was captured, by the earth or whether it formed [ through, coagulation of material in the dense atmosphere of the • primeval earth. "I think the information we have today is sufficient to resolve the question, but it will take several more years of work," he said. | ; Argument.Continues And Dr. Edwards Anders of the Unniversity of Chicago said "The argument is continuing. The question has hot \ been settled by any means. That's why each of us is looking for WHAT'S YOUR FARMERS LOAN. y < : '1 TRUST COMPANY ' ' ' . .!' ! 110 E. Jeff. St.^ .

Vinogradov, to the meeting at the invitation of the U.S. space agency. Vinogradov arrived Monday with what looked like a large roll of charts and said he was prepared to tell about-studies conducted on lunar soil returned to earth by Russia 's robot Luna 16. '"This looks to me like it might be a first step, and an extremely exciting one for us, toward increased cooperation," said a delighted Dr. tary Latham of New York 's Lamont Geological Observatory. Exotic Particles Discovered Scientists reported.the discovery of exotic particles called "kreep" in moon sbil^samples. They pictured the moon as a 4.6 billion-year-old body with a hot and lively childhood, but a relatively cool and only slightly active present. ^."It was pretty lively (at first), got itself all hot and bothered and partially melted," said Dr. G. J. Wasserburg of the California Institute of Technology. "It certainly got. itself melted at least down to 100 kilometers (62 miles)," Nobel Prize-winner Dr. Harold Urey said it appeared to; him the moon melted on the surface, cooled, was bombarded by meteoroids which crushed the upper crust into a layer of shock-insulanting rubble, and then partially melted again about a billion years after its formation because of internal radioactive beating. Anders said there is 100 times less gold and silver, and 100 times less volatile elements, in moon rocks and soil than there is in material from the earth and from meteoroids. He said this "spectacular" difference further contradicts. the theory the moon split off from the earth. MEXICO .

The discount amounts to $150- a-semester in; fees to undergraduate students which are children of staff members. Graduate students working for one-fourth of full-time status or more in research or teaching for Purdue would continue to pay a flat rate of $60 per semester if the extension is granted, the fee for a full-time student is $350 per esmester. Purdue's fulltime staff members would pay only $40 for up to six credit hours, while other parttime students pay $25 a crdit hour. Sendak's opinion last month stated, "tax supported universities cannot under present Indiana law specifically discount or otherwise make an allowance to members of the staff and their children which would . reduce the cost of tuition, fees and charges below that paid by; other students."; RESPITE AT LAST ROCHESTER, England (UPI) —After listening to bis wife chatter on for nearly 10 years, Raymdnde Saunders decided it was time to take action.

Gov. Robert L. Rock today had his political sights focused on becoming the next mayor of his home city, Anderson. |-;. Rock, a Democrat, dispelled recent i rumors he was going to announce bis candidacy for the governorship at a news conference Monday. | Rock | was the 1968 Democratic nominee for governor but lost to Governor Whitcomb after winning his party's nomination by two votes over opposition from state chairman Gordon St. Angelo.- j Rock said his main reason for running for mayor was to heed "my home community's call for help."! •, . "This has been a call to rectify an tration apathetic city adminis- j which has lost face and confidence in the eyes of j ray fellow Andersonians," Rock said. , .' ' !•• if elected, Rock said, he intends to complete his term and would not consider another try for governor in 1972. In answer to a question, Rock said the presence of St. Angelo as party chairman, and the kact that Rock' might not have support from state headquarters played a part in his decision to run for mayor instead of gov- 'ernor. : .j - • j .•"I certainly do not expect to give up | my interest in state government nor, tio I expect to refrain from supporting legislative efforts designed! to strengthen local government, which now, more than ever, is on trial," Rock said. j; .. ° He called the Whitcomb ad-! ministration "a debacle" and predicted • a Democrat would be elected governor in 1972. j ' . If Rock is elected mayor of Anderson, he will follow in the footsteps of his father-in-law, Ralph 'Ferguson; who was mayor in 1955-1963. • • • j Wednesday blocking the traditional ceremony when three teen-agers protested the open : air fires would violate air pollution ordinances of the city.

The state commission would be authorized to establish branch offides to facilitate collection of the excise tax which would b equivalent to an average property tax rate of^$8 per $100 of taxable value. • The 1971 Legislature appar- ° entry would be asked to re-enact the 1967 inheritance tax law that created state history by leading to the demise of pocket vetoes and the award of $12.7 million to Indianapolis. Rep, Jack Mullendore, R- Franklin, one of the authors, described the bill in advance as being intended only to reimburse the other 91 counties for the share of the inheritance tax they would have gotten under the 1967 bill, revived when the Indiana Appellate Court ruled pocket vetoes unconstitutional. But the bill as introduced was a duplicate of the 1967 law except the dates, so the apparent effect would be to re-enact the: measure all over again, effective June 1, 1971. More Judicial Reform."

STRONG CHARGES AIRED BY HARVARD "EXPERT" By HENRY CATHCART Central Press Washington Correspondent W7ASHINGTON—Sen. Alan Cranston, D-Calif., chairman of the Senate's Veterans Affairs Subcommittee, called a Har-, vard socialist to Washington recently to find out how Vietnam Veterans';are adjusting to civilian life. • •_, The result told more about the haphazard way Cranston.holds hearings than the situation with returning, war veterans, j : . ] ' Cranston's "exper.t"^ Dr.. Charles Levy — said he had reached the following conclusions about Vietnam veterans: They j are "violence-prone' upon returning home. "As in Vietnam," the doctor testified, "the targets of their hostility may be those on their own side." # They I were "invariably positive" in their thoughts about the Viet Cong and North Viet- •• namese enemies, bjit despise members, of the < allied South Vietnam forces. One Vietnam veteran, according to Dr. Levy, said he and several buddies threw a one-legged South Vietnamese soldier out of a truck that was taking him for hospital care.

Under questioning he admitted that his conclusions Were reached after interviewing the grand total of 60 Vietnam veterans. Moreover, all [were, all were enlisted men, all were white, all live i today in the same section of one city. (For! Dr. Levy's mformatioh there are.2.5 million Vietnam ve.terahs,'430,000 of them Marines.) • j ; But there's more. Not only did Pr.. Levy interview only 60 men, but he has never been to Vietnam'nor has he ever served in the military. } | Donald Johnson, who heads ; the Veterans Administration, branded Dr. Levy's testimony "demeaning and an insult to the millions of veterans who have'served in Vietnam. "It is my personal Cspinion,'* Johnson continued, "that at least some of those interviewed were telling tall war stories or even, perhaps, pulling the doctor's leg." • ''Yet all the blame should not fall on Dr. Levy. Senator Crans- tdn, as a subcommittee chairman, has much responsibility here. ., • '.-»••*!.. «'.PREMATURE REPORT—It was he who called Dr. Levy to. Washington. It was Cranston's staff that distributed the doctor's prepared testimony to reporters before the full story of Levy's investigation could be learned] Consequently, early news stories' were based on.that prepared testimony alone. - \ !, i!'By every yardstick known to VA people Who'have regular con- 'tact with thousands of Vietnam veterans, these young men are readjusting remarkably well to civilian life," Johnson concluded; • ..'•All thejf ask is an equal opportunity to com-. pete without penalty for time out for military service. Certainly they should not be additionally handicapped by being labeled as some sort of vicious freaks." I " [• • Last fall the Senate voted to create a separate Veterans Affairs Committee to replace the subcommittee on that subject that operated as a part of the Committee on Labor and Public: Welfare. Cranston, as a freshman senator, will not likely head the newly formed full committee, i After his performance in-the. Levy j affair, many here think" - that Is just as well.
