Chancellor Brandt WASHINGTON (UPl) - West ^emm Chancellor Willy firandt has arrived here lor tallts with President NlJton, and tf.S. officials are eager to learn his reaction to the "Atlantic charter" policy outlined a week ago by presidential adviser Henry A. Kissinger. Brandt made no policy statement on his arrival Surt^ day. He has today free and will have working talks with the President Tuesday and Wednes. day, plus dinner at the White House Tuesday nfght. He will also address the National Press Cljub Wednesday. Kissinger, a week ago, outlined general goals for what he called "a new Atlantic charter," designed to deal with economic, ; military and dip- loniatic strains in the transatlantic alliance and also to bring Japan into closer rela tionship. Brandt is expected to get his own briefing on these U.S. ideas — perhaps with more specifics than Kissinger gave— piid his reaction will be sought. . Two bilateral problems will be featured in the talks—the level of U.S. forces in Europe and the |1 billion a year which West Germany contributes to offset the foreign exchange drain of these forces. There is pressure in the U.S. Congress both to reduce the troop level and increase the rate of West German financial contribution. ^ Methodist Group To Pick Officers MAQUON - Douglas United Methodist Church Methodist Men will choose new officers at . the organization's May meeting. A nominating committee was appointed at the group's April 23 meeting. Gaylord Sargent is committee chairman; Myron Mason, Kenneth Emken and Don Doubet are members. Members of the Maquon Woman's Club assisted with a screening clinic for vision, hearing ' and general development problems in pre-school children sponsored recently by Spoon River Valley School District 4. My heartfelt Thani<s to all who extended comforting sympathy and. help in the recent loss of my husband. For the service, floral offerings, minister, pallbearers and other kindnesses I am deeply grateful. Mrs. Ray G. Hall Brant's meeting with tiHati takes place two weieks before Soviet Communist Party Chief Leonid I. Braihnev visits Bonn. Brandt has been a leadjsr in Europe of a policy of ra^ prochement with the Conimu- nist East, and this is also expected to be a topic of his talks with Nixon. So is the Middle East. Brandt is visiting Israel in June. Before Brandt's departure for Washington, West German conscientious objectors appealed to him to intervene with NixOn on behalf of American d r a f t resistors. Nixon has been adamant against amnesty for draft evaders. Brandt knows this, and probably wiU not seriously raise the issue. Rare Blood ves Woman^s Life GREENFIELD, Mass. (UPI) ^ A pint of some of the rarest blood in the world wis enroute from Thailand to the Franklin County Public Hospital today to aid an elderly woman^ suffering from-severe anemia. Mrs. Alma Coates, 75, of Greenfield, was listed in fair to good conditio^, after receiving a pint of the Type A-Rli negative blood Sunday froni'tihie national Rare Blobd Bank in Wtiitiing- ton, D.C., a hospital spokesman said. The blood was given two years ago by the same unidentified donor in Thailand during a similar search and stored at the blood bank. The Massachusetts Red Cross said only two persons in the world— the one in Thailand and another in Guam—are known to have Mrs. Coates' blood type which contains a rare sub grouping known as JKB-JKA negative. Red Cross Medical Director Dr. Allan Kliman said a cable was sent to the donor in Thailand requesting another pint of the blood when none of the callers appeared to have the right blood type. There are no known donors with the JKB- JKA negative sub grouping in the United States, he said. A spokesman said the hospital had been notified that the blood from Thailand was on its way to the United States. Dr. George Ennis, assistant director of the hospital, said Mrs. Coates appeared to have an adequate blood supply unless her condition changes. Qalesi OALESBURO, ILL., MON., APRIL 90, 19^3 PAOfS 1?

Demolition experts said they would return today to attempt clearing debris and dangerous TNT fragments from the Southern Pacific switching yard, where they were driven back by sporadic explosions Sunday night. Persons returning to their shattered homes less than a mile from the yard were warned there was no gas or electricity and were told, "Do not light any fire or drink any water." A series of explosions that started at 8:03 a.m. Saturday morning rocked the Roseville area and blew out windows, buckled walls and toppled fences.

"I would say he's not the normal ail-American type kid you generally run into," Nick Tomasic, the district attorney who will prosecute Massey, said Sunday. Tomasic has asked a court to certify a lO-year-old boy who allegedly helped Massey as an adult so he, too, can be tried for murder. "The only indication we have for them starting the fire is just to get the thrill, the kicks. There is no other kind of motive. Massey said they just wanted to start a fire and watch it burn," the prosecutor said. The blaze quickly spread throughout the two-story structure. The six elderly women died of smoke inhalation. Tomasic said the 16-year-old has admitted to starting as many as 20 fires recently. "Massey appears to be the beatnik type, the type kid who stays out till 2 or 3 in the morning at the ^ocal pool hall," Tomasic said. "His parents are separated, and he just has a free run." Massey was held today in lieu of $50,000 bond pending a prelimiiiary hearing Thursday.

Writing in the journal Social Science Review, Thanat saidj that formulation of the Nixon doctrine meant that the United States no longer was committed to protect Thailand from Communist attack. "To agree to let that country operate a war from our territory while we are not going to have any assistance and protection from the United States as in the past, it is even more, risky, and there is no protection for us," Thanat said. When the United States failed in Vietnam and had to find its way out through diplomatic and political negotiations, the transfer of strategic equipment and weapons into Thailand will not be of benefit to the Thai people but will turn Thailand into an obvious target of the Communists, who are now free of fighting in the Vietnam War and will be completely free to attack us," he wrote.

In a hitherto undisclosed version of the first introduction of U.S. combat forces into Thailand in 1962, Thanat disputed statements by the late PresWent John F. Kennedy ihat Thailand had welcomed tntm. Thanat said the move,- Which came as the United States was embarking on a series of escalations in Vietnam, was pushed by the United States.
