George Lewis, chairman of the education committee of the Institute of Chiropodists, said in a newspaper inter- View he will sound the warning at the institute's annual meeting in Blackpool Sunday. He said the way girls have to walk when wearing high wedge shoes can displace the pelvis and make it painful and in some cases impossible for them to have children. "These are extreme effects, I know," Lewis said. "But girls walk in a peculiar way when they wear these monstrosities, lliey bend their knees and the pelvis and abdomen are thrust forward. This is unnatural and can seriously alfect a girl's health. Apart from this, the shoes cause discomfort and distort the foot bone^ of young girls," he said. The British Federation of Footwear Manufacturers scoffed at the wiaming. "Chiropodists are alarmists," a federation spokesman said. "No matter what fashion is brought out, they don't like it. . ., "Regarding very young people, under 16, it is probably true that they should not wear extreme shoe fashions. But this is up to their parents."

T" , Lawrence Laniont, Slrra Pine Ridge Reservation Sioux, was killed in bursts of. gunfire Friday between federal forces and Indians holding Wounded Knee. A second man was wounded, the Indians said. Lament became the second person to die smce Indians took over the historic hamlet 60 days ago. One Wounded Knee occupier, Frank Clearwater, was shot in the head on April 17 and died Tuesday. Shortly after Lament's body was removed from the village, a government spokesman said he had heard reports of Indian plans that would risk new outbreaks. Stanley Lyman, Pine Ridge superintendent of the Qureau of Indian Affairs, said he was **very concerned about the possibility" that Wounded Knee occupiers will attempt to bury Clearwater in the village despite knowledge that Oglala Sioux chieftains will oppose the burial. Richard Wilson, president of the Oglala Sioux Tribal Council, has said that Clearwater was r L an Apache and cannot be buried at Wounded Knee. Tboipas Oxendine,. BIA. communications director, said the steady firing started Thursday night and ended at 2:40 p.m. MST Friday when the Indians sent word by radio they wanted a cease-fire because 'Hhey had one dead and one wounded warrior. Oxendine said Lamont had strong ties to ''establishment*' Indians of the reservation who have been bitterly opposed to the occupation of Wounded Knee by other Indians, now in its 61st day. J^amont was the son of Agnes Lamont, a BIA employe and a teacher's aide, Oxendine said, and the brother of Lloyd "Toby" Eagle Bull, secretary of the Oglala Tribal Council. A spokesman for the Wounded Knee occupiers called the UPI New York office and said the firing was started by **Dick Wilson'^ goon squad" and that Lament's family has decided Lamont will be buried at Wounded Knee. Vie tnam Swaps Civilian POWs changed for 63 SAIGON (UPI) - South Vietnam and the Provisional RevoUitionary government (Viet Cong) began releasing each other's civilian prisoners today, the Saigon command said. It was the final day of the 90- day period for releasing civilian prisoners under terms of the Paris cease-fire agreement. A South Vietnamese command spokesman said that by late this afternoon, 100 Communist civilians had been ex- South Vietnamese civilians, including three women, at Loc Ninh, a Communist-held district capital 73 miles north of Saigon. Roughly half the Communists held prisoner were women. The prisoners released to the South Vietnamese government were lodged in camps and hospitals at Bien Hoa, 14 miles northeast of Saigon. Informed sources said they would be interrogated there before being allowed to return to their homes. All toW, the South Vietnamese government is scheduled to release 750 civilians and the Viet Cong 637 prisoners in the first phase of civilian releases and the only phase agreed on thus far. The release originally had been scheduled for Friday. It was delayed by disagreement between the Viet Cong and the international truce team over safety measures for truce team helicopters. That disagreement apparently had been resolved by today, although details were not unmediately available. The total of 1,387 prisoners scheduled for release is far fewer than the number each side claims the other holds. The Viet Cong says the Saigon government holds 200,000 political prisoners and Saigon says the Communists hold 67,000. In more post-truce fightmg, the Saigon conmiand said 25 Communist troops and four South Vietnamese soldiers were killed Friday in a battle between Hong Ngu, 85 miles v/est of Saigon, and the Cambodian frontier. Twenty- five government soldiers were reported wounded. CAMP DAVID, Md. (UPI) With Watergate problems mul* tiplying, President Nixoii secluded himself at his mountaintop retreat today after canceling scheduled talks on the nation's economy. Nixon left Washington late Friday by helicopter after returning from an aerial tour of the flood-stricken Mississippi River Valley and a dedication ceremony in Meridian, Miss. The White House said he was alone except for customary personal service aides. With the Watergate scandal taking priority over all other problems facing him, Nixon scrubbed a White House morning meeting with top level advisers on inflation and other w , economic matters. Deputy White House Press Secretary Gerald Warren said Nixon would probably be in touch by telephone today with Treasury Secretary George P. Shultz and other economic aides but that it was unlikely any major actions or statements would be made public until the {'resident returned to the capital He was expected to remain at Camp David at least through Sunday. There were no definite clues as to how Nixon would react to the increasing indications of high-level White House involvement in the political espionage and sabotage during last year's presidential campaign. Despite reports that he was about to toss overboard key aides such as H. R. Haldeman, his chief of staff, and John D. Ehrlichman, his chief domestic adviser, Nixon invited both key assistants along with him on his Mississippi trip Friday. He seemed to be expressing his public support for the two aides, despite disclosures that they may have been involved in the coverup of the Watergate case. Most of his top Republican supporters already have made it clear through public statements that they want Nixon to drop key staffers such as Haldeman and Ehrlichman. With two resignations since Thursday Jeb Stuart Ma gruder, former deputy director of the Committee to Re-elect r the President, and acting FBI Director L. Patrick Gray—most observers were waiting for more to come. No matter who was involved in the matter (Watergate), there will be no sparhig of anybody," Nixon said as he asked William D.

Authorities said no one was allowed near the scene because of the fear that some of the boxcars contained liquified gas. Mor wns PHNOM PENH (UPI) Rebel Cambodian troops seized four more towns within 10 miles of Phnom Penh today while American air strikes along the east bank of the Mekong River opposite the capital were halted abruptly. In the early morning hours, U.S. B52 bombers had pounded Communist positions southeast of Phnom Penh in one of the heaviest raids of the renewed American bombing campaign in Cambodia, military sources said. Refugees who continued streaming across the river into Phnom Penh said rebel units at Prek Thong, less than five miles east of the capital, had burned down at least 30 homes in the village. U.S. Air Force planes today flew no missions along the Mekong's east bank with the exception of a flight by an OVIO '*Bronco" armed reconnais- alrcraft which circled overhead. (Military sources in Thailand, where the American bombers are based, told UPI the strikes —which have been orderd strategic through Phnom th Penh U.S. Embassy in canceled -were because they were endangering populated areas.) Although the back its United Stales air operations qut across the Mekong from Phnjm Penh, there was no indication there would be any letup elsewhere in Cambodia or any reduction in B52 bomber raids. Most B52 missions are flown between mid-evening and dawn. Reliable military sources here reported the loss of four towns to rebel troops, including Setbo, 10 miles south of Phnom Penh on Highway 21, and Kompong Kantuot, 15 miles south of the capital. The sources said rebel forces also occupied Ang Talek and Thmat Pong, 12 and 15 miles northwest of Phnom Penh. A Cambodian Air Force fixed - wing g u n s h i p today strafed enemy positions on the Mekong's east bank, which had V been heavily pounded Friday by American jets including F4 phantoms and swing-wing Fills in day and night strikes.

The jets were guided to their targets, tv/o to five miles east of the river, by dozens ol flares that also helped goveiDtment troops spot any drive by rebel soldiers to cross the riv€«r to Phnom Penh in sampans or other vessels.
