End Is In Sight For Highway Litter Cans Those dark olive green litter cans along - side state highways ;nay be on the way out, forcing motorists to live with their litter, or more nrnhahlv. throw it along the roadway, ac-j cording to Larry Walker, of thcK state Division of Highways.; The reason? Household gar-t, r '" bage. Last year, the litter cans tt:-i a i jiung nignway a were removecu for that reason, and valley resi-f4- dents have been writing to re-A quest them ever since. "The way it looks now," Walker said, "Those cans are going to disappear all over the state." Planning engineers have been conducting a survey to define the problem, and partial figures indicate that nearly 90 per cent of the refuse in state highway litter cans is household garbage. "I don't know what the cost to the taxpayer is for these three - times - a - week collections," Walker said, "but it runs into the thousands." Walker said there are now 70 such cans along Highway 17 and 1 in Santa Cruz County. He cited some instances in which persons have been caught stuffing plastic bags of household garbage into the litter cans in the county. ffWKiWS)iWlllllB l 1 r" 1 ifllUi J i 4L'L 1 m.

The measure by Assemblyman Pete. Wilson, R-San Diego, was severely criticized by some conservationists when it was approved June 23 by the As sembly Natural Resources and Conservation Committee as the weakest of three proposals before the committee. Since then it has been amended to eliminate a $600,000 appropriation for state administration of shoreline development in fiscal 1970-71, a con cession to the state's continuing budget crisis. But even with those two setbacks for conservationists, the Wilson bill to be voted on by the Assembly Ways and Means Committee Tuesday would signal a basic change in the state's role in both local planning and environmental protection. At present city and county planning commissions and their city councils and countv boards of supervisors have the final word in all shoreline land use decisions. The Wilson bill would allow local government the same veto it now holds over shoreline development, but land owners and developers would also have to satisfy a regional shoreline agency with a veto over development within 1,000 yards of the shoreline. These boards made up primarily of locally elected officials would be accountable to a 17-member state board dominated by public members, and civil fines up to $10,000 could be assessed against private citizens or local government agencies which ignore the orders of the new boards. The state and local boards are also ordered to develop extensive land use criteria and plans under the Wilson bill. However, lack of an appropriation clause makes early enactment or enforcement of those plans questionable. The involvement of local government, which is dependent on development to increase t h e property tax base, is the principal reason conservationists have criticized the Wilson bill as weak. It also covered a narrower band of coastline land than the proposals by Assemblymen George Milias, R-Gilroy, or Alan Sieroty, D-Beverly Hills. Without funds to operate the state or regional boards, their effectiveness is doubted by conservationists. But in theory, at least, even their existence on paper would halt any project which would cut public access to the ocean, limit the view from the nearest road, or do irreparable ecological damage. 115th Year-No. 164 8 inx- I ii fits F"r i f r I ifl i f i t i vi r 10c Monday Afternoon, July 13, 1970 16 Pages Michigan Cities icene fl Violence By THE ASSOCIATED PRESSvirtually halted four days of ra-Twenty persons were arrestedcial violence in New Bedford, in Michigan City, Ind., SundayMass. during a second night of disor- Two nights of disorders in ders as Negroes hurling bricksMichigan City brought 150 Na-and rocks at cars roamedtional Guardsmen to join state streets in the predominantlyand local police in enforcing a 9 black north side. p.m. to 6 a.m. curtew and prev Elsewhere, there was a sec-enting gatherings of groups of ond night of clashes in Highlandfour persons or more in off-cur-Park, Mich., but a tight curfewfew hours. UC Psychiatrist Reports: Pot Users Can't Think Straight believe and their judgment is impaired. While marijuana has an "accumulating effect on users abstract thought and some other mental processes are not affected, Powelson added. Prolonged pot smoking also brings physical effects, Powelson, a therapist for 20 years, said. Israel In New Mideast Peace Bid BERKELEY (AP) - Marijuana smokers "can't think straight" and they suffer from accumulating effects of the drug, says University of California psychiatrist David Harvey Powelson. "I'm seeing some people who have been off pot for six months and their thinking is still not clear and they know it," declares Powelson, director of the camous health service's psychiatric department. j Since the 1954 Free Speech' Movement at Berkeley Powelson said he has given therapy to hundreds of pot-smoking students by "listening to the way people think." Powelson has been criticized by some university colleagues, because his clinical work is considered "unscientific" observa tion, he said. "It's a curious thing," he lamented in an interview over the weekend. "Nobody here challenges you if you take the popular position." However, he said he now refuses to begin therapy with students who use marijuana or any drugs extensively because their "thinking is damaged." Powelson defines thinking as a process that guides the individual, "goal-oriented activity." "That's what gets impaired," he said, "They go off on tan gents, are sometimes out of contact with what they really "They develop a particular type of gait it looks like somebody moving his arms and legs with strings. The central integrating system is somehow defective," he stated. "And it's much the same with their thinking." Coal Mine Strike Is Not Spreading CHARLESTON, W. Va. (AP) Plagued by federal court res-trainers and lack of support from allies of slain Joseph Ya-blonski, dissident pensioners had little apparent success ear ly today in spreading a strike through the five-state Appalachian coal fields. At least 10 West Virginia soft coal mines employing some 3,000 men were shut down early today in Wyoming County when picket lines went up. Five of those mines belonged to Consolidation Coal. Co. and Eastern Associated, two of the six companies granted temporary restrained last week. Police Chief Leon Shiparski said the trouble began after three blacks were arrested in a downtown tavern for disorderly conduct. In ' Sundav nieht's disorder, ! police reported sporadic fire from sniDers but said no one was hurt. A white man was Dulled from his auto and beaten He was hospitalized in fair con dition. About 15 per cent of the city's 38.000 residents are black. In New Bedford, police Capt. Harry Kenyon said blacks there had set up barricades on sever al streets in the mainly Negro section of the city s West End. The area was quiet and police stayed out. A police officer discounted a reported threat as the reason for staying out. "We're trying to work this thing out, he said. Twelve persons were arrested for curfew violations. Disorders began Wednesday when police arrested a Negro on a driving charge and a scuffle ensued. A Negro youth was killed and three others were injured Saturday night by shotgun blasts fired from a speeding car. Police charged three youths with murder. The clashes in Highland Park grew out of the fatal shooting of a Negro in white-run bar. A white bartender was arraigned on a second-degree murder charge and released on $20,000 bail. Police used tear gas to dis perse a crowd of about 1,000 that gathered near the bar Sunday night. A firebomb thrown into the building badly damaged the interior. Another blaze burned out a grocery. Robert Blackwell, mayor of the predominantly black com munity of 40,000, said police were enforcing a 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew. In Palo Alto, Calif., some 260 young persons were arrested in a confrontation over a rock music curfew. Three police officers suffered minor injuries and sev eral windows were smashed. TEL AVIV (AP) - Foreign! Minister Abba Eban proposed today that Israel and Egypt send delegates to "an agreed place to discuss procedures unconditionally for later peace talks. Addressing the Knesset, Israel's parliament in Jerusalem, Eban said preliminary talks could be of "the most unofficial nature." Such contacts could "prepare the ground for a real negotiation which is the only exit from the present conflict," he said. Eban's statement was regard ed as significant in that it constitutes acceptance of an element understood to be in the latest U.S. proposal for a Middle East settlement This proposal, by Secretary of State William P. Rogers, calls for Arab-Israeli contacts under the auspices of Swedish diplomat Gunnar Jarring, a U.N. special envoy. Also notable was Eban's omission of the phrase "direct negotiations," with regard to the preliminary talks. This appeared to be a soften ing of the Israeli stand, which has been adamant that any talks should be face to face, without intermediaries. This has been unacceptable to the Arabs. The minister also reaffirmed Israel's acceptance of the cease-fire as stipulated by the U.N. Security Council in 1967, This was seen as a veiled reminder to Rogers that Israel would accept no cease-fire limit ed in scope and duration but only a total and unconditional truce, as called for by the Security Council. Washington is believed proposing a three-month cease-fire. Eban blasted the latest Soviet peace proposals as "designed to endanger Israels security and to maintain continuous tensions in the Middle East by an exact reconstruction of the situation that produced the 1967 war." He laid down three criteria for testing a peace initiative. Whether it provides a per manent peace drafted and agreed upon by the Arab states and Israel, and not "an ambiguous formula like in the past." Secure and agreed frontiers to be reached by "free and normal negotiations" without a dic tation of restrictive condition. The degree to which it is founded on "an equal and complete sovereignty of the signatory states and their inalienable right to maintain their culture, their security and their human compositions they see fit." Palo Alto Youths Battle Police Over Music Ban PALO ALTO, Calif. (AP) - A confrontation over a rock music curfew has ended in the arrest of about 260 young persons, window damage and minor injuries to three police officers. Later, a powerful time bomb was found in the doorway of the Stanford Financial Center three miles away. It was disarmed. Police Chief William Hydie said he believed the two events 12 hours apart were related, but he did not elaborate. About 120 officers corraled the crowd at a park early Sunday after windows were smashed at a financial center and several businesses. Hydie said the throng chanted threats to repeat a rampage which damaged the area July 4 RED OFFENSE POSSIBLE FIRE BASE VEGHEL, Viet nam (AP) - Gen. William C, Westmoreland said today a North Vietmanese offensive is possible as the Americans withdraw from Vietnam. after 11 persons were arrested for violating a ban on amplified music after 11 p.m. A rally billed as a test of the ban Saturday night attracted about 1,000 young persons and 600 older persons invited by businesses to watch. The band stopped at 11 p.m., however. About 300 to 400 persons continued milling near the plaza, and police moved in after the rock throwing and when traffic was blocked at an inter section. Most of those arrested were freed without bond after being booked for investigation of misdemeanor rioting.

One youth i LWisinn mvisPJ rw was booked for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon after police said he tried to run down arresting officers with his van. John Dolly, coordinator for the Midpeninsula Free. Univer sity, said, No word to disperse was given and no one was al lowed to leave the area." He said some of the crowd tried to flee but was met by a police line that encircled the area. "We'll be back on the plaza next Saturday night with music, speakers and films," he said. The MFU publishes an underground newspaper which had called for defying the music ban at the Equitable Plaza. Dolly said the confrontation is part of a drive by young people against development of the downtown as a financial center. He said development will force out low-income people who live in older areas either through evictions or higher rents. Don Klages, a Palo Alto busi ness leader, said, "Either we grow and develop or we slide back into another Berkeley, a situation which allows a lot of communes, dope and police problems." The latest arrests and issues behind them will be discussed at a city council meeting tonight, Palo Alto Mayor Jack Wheatley said. Huntley, reminiscing in a Life magazine interview, says th .t of the Presidents he was around he liked Lyndon B. Johnson best. "He was kind to me," he said. "As insufferable as he could be, he Was a gracious and funny man at ease. I never tried to argue with him. I just kept fill ing his glass with Scotch and we talked about breeding Here-fords." Huntley, who will retire Aug. 1 after 14 years with partner David Bnnkley, also comment ed on President Nixon: "I've been with Nixon social- private plane; I've seen him un der many conditions.

The networks "almost created" Ag-new, he added. "For God's sake...I resent being lumped in with his Eastern Establishment effete intellectuals." He also offered these views: -"Covering the astronauts was an exercise in boredom. The networks all got trapped. Most astronauts are dull as hell. nice guys, mechanics.

Kleyer BRIDGETOWN, Ba r b a d 0 s (AP) After a two-month transatlantic crossing that he says proves the Egyptians could have discovered America 4,000 years ago, Thor Heyerdahl and his seven international crewmen planned to haul their waterlogged papyrus boat Ra II out of Bridgetown's harbor today prior to shipping it back to Europe. The 55-year-old Norwegian explorer and his crew spent their first night ashore Sunday after completing their 3,200-mile crossing that began May 17 in Safi, Morocco. Claiming that the successful completion of his epic journey Prove Tlheoir Pmnt proved the ancient Egyptians could have crossed the Atlantic, Heyerdahl declared as he stepped ashore late Sunday afternoon: "This is a great, great, great moment. We have definitely proved that papyrus is seaworthy." Only the Ra's pointed prow and stern sections were above water, and the government tug Culpepper towed it the last eight miles into harbor. But officials said the Ra could have made Bridgetown unaided; she just needed assistance to complete the journey before dark. "It's good to be back again," Heyerdahl called to wellwishers as he tied up at the customs dock in the capital of Barbados. "We are delighted to be here, especially when we came so close last year." Heyerdahl's first attempt last year to prove his theory ended 600 miles short of Barbados when the Ra I, a larger copy of the Egyptian boats shown on ancient tomb carvings, broke up in high seas. Twenty small boats escorted the Ra II into Bridgetown harbor. Heyerdahl and his crew squatted on the flat roof of the raft's cabin, waving and blowing kisses to bikini-clad girls riding alongside in speedboats. Hundreds lining the docks applauded. Prime Minister Errol Barrow led welcoming officials, declaring: "This has established that Barbados was the first landing place for man in the Western world." Heyerdahl, who sported a long beard grown during the voyage, also commented that the voyage showed "that eight men from eight nations on both sides of the political fence, black, white and yellow, of all different religions and backgrounds," could "live together like one family in a small cabin, 6 feet by 18 feet." The Norwegian skipper's crew men, were from Egypt, Mexico, the Soviet Union, the United States, Italy, Japan and Morocco, and they sailed under the blue and white United Nations flag. - Most of the crew were on the trip last year. Heyerdahl credited some of the success of his second attempt to a change in boatmak-ers. "We decided to have it built by South American Indians on Lake Titicaca in Bolivia instead of natives living on Lake Chad in Ethiopia," he said. "This voyage has proved conclusively that the art of building vessels from papyrus reed has survived longer in this part of the world than it has in Africa." The anthropologist sought to prove that the Egyptians could have crossed the Atlantic in similar papyrus vessels long before the voyage of Columbus. Now the Ra II is destined for the Kon-Tiki Museum in Oslo, which Heyerdahl founded with the relics of his first famous voyage, in 1947 aboard the raft Kon-Tiki from Peru to Polynesia. He claimed that the 4,300-mile, 101-day voyage proved Peruvian Indians could have settled the Polynesian islands of the South Pacific. Heyerdahl's wife and the wife of his American radioman-navigator, Norman Baker, 41, of New Rochelle, N.Y., were on hand to greet their husbands. Blonde Yvonne Heyerdahl and the couple's 17-year-old daughter, Anette, chartered the Culpepper on Wednesday and escorted the Ra II on the final leg of the adventure. Baker, a civil engineer, arrived two days after his 10th wedding anniversary. He and his wife planned a few days vacation before returning home to their two sons, 9 and 6, and daughter, 8.
