t y ir',7''' rrr'T'r Pre-Marriage Pacts Invalid SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A spouse is entitled to support from his or her partner regard-ess of premarital agreements, the state Supreme Court has ruled. i The decision in a Santa Barbara County case Wednesday held that a pre-marriage agreement is invalid once two parties enter into a marriage contract and cannot affect any support award after dissolution. The case involved Lolita A.-Higgason, 73. identified as an Armour heiress, and William H. Higgason. 48. who were married in 1969 and divorced in 1971. The unanimous decision noted that shortly before the marriage each waived any interest in the other's property or estate or in the right to support. The high court ruled this agreement was invalidated by the marriage contract. Higgason, a waiter when they married, became seriously ill 1 w Seascape 610 Clubhouse Dr. Rio Del Mar Now featuring "THE KAY MANN TRIO" 7 Nite A Week For Your Dining & Dancing Pleasure Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Served Every Day.

Mrs. Higgason, who was declared an incompetent person in 1969. had her husband moved out of the house in March of 1971 and filed for dissolution. The husband asked for support. Superior Court Judge John Westwick granted the divorce, but said he did not have the authority to award any support payments. Higgason appealed and the California Supreme Court sent the case back to the lower court judge to award support if circumstances merit it. Civil Rights WASHINGTON (AP) Arthur S.

A A m jt Am, Astronauts9 Health Excellent SPACE CENTER, Houston ( AP) The Skylab 3 astronauts are in excellent health and nearing peak "work efficiency after three weeks in space, the crew physician reports. Dr. Jerry Hordinsky says he sees no present medical reason that would prevent Gerald P. Carr, William R. Pogue and Edward G. Gibson from completing their record JMJay space mission. "They're adjusting well to weightlessness and they are in excellent health, both mentally and physically." Hordinsky told newsmen late Wednesday. Hordinsky monitors medical data, from the space station and holds' a medical conference by radio with the astronauts each night. Hordinsky said the astronauts have not settled into a pattern of work efficiency as rapidlyasthe Skylab 1 and 2 crews did. He blames this on a heavy work load and a lot of repair jobs in the first 10 days of the flight. "They got behind schedule early and became frustrated and irritable at times," he said. "But with that period behind them, they're climbing upon the proficiency curve." A full day of experiments was on schedule for the space travelers today, although an earth resources pass over the United States had to be deleted because of bad weather over many of the targets.

Utah (AP) Brig-ham Young University says students who violate dress and grooming standards will not be allowed to take final examinations and could receive a failing grade. BYU President Jallin H. Oaks authorized the action Wednesday in a letter to faculty members. "There are too many violations of general grubbiness, mustaches below the comers of the mouth, sideburns of excessive length, mini-skirts, and other immodest apparel," he said. "But the primary violations are young women wearing jeans on campus and young men with hair length over their ears and shirt collars." When they apply for admission to Brigham Young, operated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon), students must promise to obey dress and grooming standards. The Mormon Church educational system states.

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP)-Energy-saving rules were ignored for the evening as a glamor-studded audience attended the official opening of the MGM Grand Hotel, a $106 million project billed as the world's largest resort spa. A myriad of lights shone brightly Wednesday, as a crowd of many hundred onlookers spotted such Hollywood stars as George Raft, Fred MacMurray, Jane Powell, Barbara Eden and Howard Keel drive up in vintage automobiles. The movie theme was retained for the symbolic opening in which a ribbon of film was cut with a "clacker." used in the film industry to identify the scene being filmed. Inside the 2.100-room edifice, which had quietly opened for business a day earlier, another huge crowd ignored the outdoor festivities, intent only on the click of the dice and the whirr of 923 slot machines. Even as the ribbon was cut. workmen continued to put finishing touches to the hotel-casino. One of them was busily completing the name ''Dean Martin" on the hotel's huge sign. The singer opened a 13day stand at the hotel. The MGM Grand, which will have two major showrooms, three lounge rooms and a 300-seat motion picture theater, represents a major shift in emphasis for the movie-making BRING YOUR DE5T GAL TO US VE'LL FEED HER RIGHT FRIDAY NIGHT 4:00.8:30 SHRIMP & LOBSTER NEWBURG ROAST BEEF AU JUS DEEP FRIED FISH FILETS PIZZA, FRIED CHICKEN CHOCOLATE FUDGE CAKE I ALL YOU V WANT j 7iroci:v sr. 2 Hitlllirul Thrillers "STATE OF SIICI " -C- Once Sightly 9:45 "Z" -PC- Oncv MtfhlU 7:iiU dJlp ENDS SATURDAY Boy, Hava wa got a vacation for you . . ...Where nothing can possibly go wor- "9-m with YUl BRYNNER RICHARD BENJAMIN & JAMES BROUN PLUS .

Idaho (AP) Despite rising food prices, miners can still get "all you want to eat" for S4.50 a day at Pat's Boarding House. The house is operating at full capacity again and Mrs. Ira Tatham. the operator, says the promise of all you can eat is almost correct. "Because of the high prices of steak, there is a limit of one steak per person per meal." she said Wednesday. "I give them mostly roast beef, roast pork, ham. turkey, chicken, potatoes and hash that's what we're going to have today." Two roomers have been with Pat's since 1952. They lived cheaply then. "In those days, a man could eat for $3 to $3.50." Mrs. Tatham said.
