Mediators Meet Today On NBC 'Bardot' Dispute NEW YORK (UPI) Federal mediators scheduled a meeting today in an attempt to resolve a disnute which put the National Broadcasting Companys television network off the air for two hours Monday and forced supervisory personnel to take over all oih technicians jobs on radio and TV. At issue was a French filmed interview with Brigitte Bardot which the National Association of Broadcasting Employes and Technicians said represented an electronic version of the runaway shop" and a violation of its contract with the network. NBC denied there was a contract violation and said it had sent nine NABET members to Paris-one more than the union requested for the filming of the Bardot interview and four other Dave Garroway Today shows. It said Mondays tape program, in which Miss Bardot recites Shakespeare on the Eiffel Tower, will be presented today, with supervisory workers handling the NABET members jobs.

The two-state search for the young Negro, an accused rapist, and the masked mob that abdtict-ed him early Sjaturday was begun Monday. It was widened today after a meeting Monday night of more than 30 of the 40 FBI agents working on the case in this south Mississippi town. The meeting followed an hour-long telephone report, apparently to Washington headquarters, by R. W. Bachman, New Orleans FBI chief. The widening of the search for Mack Charles Parker, 23, a truck driver, and his kidnapers began after authorities exhausted most leads in Pearl River County. Some of the agents returned today to a neighboring Louisiana parish for the second day to step up questioning of persons in the Bogalusa, area. Bogalusa, the former hometown of the white pregnant woman Parker was accused of raping, is 21 miles west of here, just across the Mississippi River. However, questioning of scores of residents here, in the Hattiesburg area where the woman now lives and in neighboring I-amar County was continuing. Parker lived in the Lamar County town of Lumberton. Parker was beaten savagely with Distols and clubs and dragged head first down three flights of stairs from the third-floor jail. He was dumped into a waiting car by the masked and hooded men. The abductors carried a short coil of rope. QUAKE SHAKES LARGE AREA BERKELEY, Calif.

Bigelow, minister of the church, has been looking for a parsel of land on which to build a new church and parsonage. The old church is presently located in Riverside County. The Rev. Bigelow would like to construct a church in the Crand Terrace area. We have the money to 'purchase the land, but our efforts to find one or two acres in the Grand Terrace area have been fruitless, the young minister stated. Application Denied On Feb. 11, an application was submitted to the San Bernardino Planning CRmmission to construct the new church on the west side of La Cadena north of Barton Rd. Because of the traffic hazard and small site, the planners suggested that a larger site be purchased. Since the planners turned down the application, the Rev. Bigelow and his congregation have been searching for a new church site. "Our present church was to be the first unit of the church and used for youth facilities when the new auditorium was built. The bui'ding codes of the county would not permit the addition of an auditorium, the Rev. Bigelow slated.

Pauling Claims Strontium-90 limit Too Hiuh NEW YORK (UPI)-Dr. Linus Pauling, Nobel prize winning chemist, said today that amounts of strontium-90 now judged permissible could cause every thousandth child in an entire generation to die of leukemia. Pauling protested the recent raising of the permissible limit by the National Committee on Radiation Protection and measurements in a letter to the New York Tiroes published today. The scientist, head of the chemistry division of the California Institute of Technology, has long been an outspoken opponent of continued nuclear testing which raises the worlds level of radioactive fallout. The only safe amount of stron-tum-90 in the bone of our chil-' dren is zero." Tauling wrote. He noted that the element is deposited rapidly, with calcium, in the bones of growing children. I shall assume that by the age of 7 the children have received the maximum permissible amount 0 2 mierocurie, he wrote. For the remainder of their lives, about 63 years, their bone marrow would be irndiated by it at the rate of 0 5 roentgen a year. Prof. B. Lewis of the Ca'i-fornia Institute of Technology estimated from the k.eiJence of leukemia in Hiroshima nid Nagasaki survivors that -ne-marrow irradiation by one roentgen increases the incidence of leukemia by one per million during each succeeding year. There is much evidence that this rate holds lor even, small amounts of radiation. A simple calculation on the basis of the above figures show; that the predicted chance of death by leukemia caused by strontium-90 for a person who receives the newly recommended maximum permissible amount early in hie is one per thousand.
