Golesburg R^gistgr-Moi^ Gdlesbufg, Hf. VV^dh#sday A June j3 y 1973 S3 Car Bomb Rocks Quiet Irish Market Town, 6 Person Dead, 34 Wounded BELFAST (UPI) - A 2«0- pound bomb left, In a parked automobile exploded Tuesday In the main street of tho town of Coleraine, bringing tho blood* shod of Northern Ireland to tho quiet market town for the first time. Six persons, four of llicm women, died and 34 other persons were wounded in the bombing, the worst single act of terrorism In ayear. Nino persons died in a Belfast bombing last year. In Belfast, ah. army sentry shot dead a man who jumped over a barricade outside a combined police and army post. THo deaths raised the toll in four years of political and religious strife among, Protes­ tants, Roman Catholics and security forces to 824. The explosion In Coleralne, 50 miles north of Belfast* occurred as children were walking home from school along Railway Street. It was only the second bomb explosion in the town since the Northern Ireland < bloodshed erupted in mid-1960. Two weeks ago, a bomb went off in a Catholic school in Coleraine, foul, no one was hurt. Coleraine is mostly Protestant and was so quiet that no British troops were on duty there. Police said that 18 of the casualties Tuesday were wounded badly enough to require hospitalization. Among the wounded, police said, were four members of one family. "As far as I am concerned," a police spokesman said, "it was nothing short of premeditated murder. They were out to kill, maim and wound as many women and children as they could." • A second bomb was discovered in a garage five minutes after tho first exploded but a workman warned passersby before it exploded. No one was hurt. A spokesman for the Sociat and Democratic Labor party, the biggest Protestant political bloc, blamed the extremist Provisional wing of the Irish Republican Army (IRA) for the bombing. But there was no statement by the IRA accepting respensi* iblity nor any charge by British security officials to support the Protestant allegations.

They are members of a group of animals called, cchinoderms. /A Contest Winners To Be Honored FARMINGTON - Winners of an American history essay contest and their parents will be honored during the Farrhington Daughters of the American Revolution chapter's annual picnic June 21 at Farmington Township Park.

(UPI) — Dr. Frederick Blanton, an opthalmologist, is treating some of his glaucoma patients with brownies—filled with imarijuana—clespite the illegality of the weed, because of its successful results. Blanton cannot obtain the drug legally but the U.S.. Division of Dangerous Drugs is "looking into" his .application to Acquire marijuana through government research ageides. Blanton, 42, told the Fort Lauderdale News Monday he about . 50 volunteer patients, was using the brownies to treat following a precedent set by | University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers in 1970. Head of an eye surgery clinic hare, Blanton said he conducted his* own research and presented a paper on the subject at Johns Hopkins University in Bal timore in April. He said it is illegal for him to use the marijuana, but he "acquires" it nonetheless, blending the leaves into powder and baking them into a readymade broiwnie mix. He said that within an hour of eating a marijuana cookie the pressure of eye fluid within the eye of glaucoma sufferers drops 25 to 35 per cent. These results last for several hours without affecting vision-fae said. Pressure of the eye fluid on the optic nerve is the cause of glaucoma, a disease which can cause blindness and death. Blanton said legal or not he feels he must go on with his marijuan-brownie treatment, "while I have patients dying of glaucoma."
