Qalesburg Register-Mail OALESBURG, ILL., TUES., JULY 17, 1973 SEC. 2 PAGE 17 Nuclear Tests On Despite Protests PAPEETE,. Tahiti (UPI) - Ffeftch sources said today that growing international opposition to French nuclear tests in the South Pacific will only harden Paris' decision to go ahead with its planned series of atmospheric explosions •. France was reported ready to start the series of atmospheric tests oh Mururoa atoll, 650 miles southeast of Tahiti, at any time. Warships were reported ready for the orders from Paris to set off the first •blast. Meanwhile, there were more protests Monday in Rome, Santiago, Chile, and Paris itself. Word From Abroad French authorities refused to say when the tests would start. Officials said the first word would come "from abroad," presumably when countries monitoring the tests announce the first explosion. . To set the stage for the testing, which began in the South Pacific in 1966, France decreed a 72-mile danger zone around Mururoa and ordered all ships to leave the area. Officials said France had the right to expel ships refusing to go. Several ships, sailing in the area in protest, are reported cruising about 100 miles away from the Mururoa atoll. One is a New Zealand warship with a cabinet minister as one of its passengers. I The protest vessels are part |of the international uproar over the tests, which began with Australian and New Zealand claims that the tests, could damage the health of their populations. France denied this. , Most of the Tahiti island (population apparently is paying little attention to the controversy. • • In diplomatic moves, Chile accused France of violating international law by conducting the tests and sent Paris an official protest. France, like China, has not signed the treaty barring atmospheric testing. Peron Take Over BUENOS AIRES (UPI) The provisional government of Raul A. Lastiri ignored demands by leftwing guerillas today that it install onetime strongman Juan D. Peron as president without awaiting elections. Lastiri's interior minister assumed his post Monday night by pledging fair and peaceful elections, but did not set a date for .them. The elections are expected sometime within 45 days. But guerilla organizations said they were not satisfied with the delay. Immediate Take Over "General Peron must take over immediately," said a statement signed by two of the most active gueriljia organizations, "because the presence of Lastiri as provisional president allows the imperialist conspiracy to continue and means a return to the (military) regime..." Peron is expected to seek the presidency—and is heavily fa? vored to Win it—in elections .made necessary by the resignation last week of Hector J. Campora. Lastiri was sworn in four days ago to replace Campora, who resigned after only 49 days in power. Campora quit in a move designed to open the way for Peron's return to the presidency he lost in 1955 in a military revolt. Political Violence The guerilla statement demanding Peron's immediate assumption of power was signed by the "Revolutionary Armed Forces" (RAF) and "The Montoncros," two of the groups most active in political violence in recent months. Peron did not comment on the demand.

Rogers wound lip two days of talks with Japanese leaders today on subjects ranging from the price of soybeans to a deal to prevent quarrels over Middle East oil. The two sides apparently agreed to work together in investment development of the Soviet Union 's oil and gas fields in Siberia. But the Japanese delegation at the talks, the ninth meeting of the U.S.-Japan joint econom ic committee, appeared cool to American requests for cooperation to prevent ''destructive competition" for Middle East oil. . Assured Governments Diplomatic sources said Japan previously assured the governments of Iran and Saudi Arabia that it would not join any bloc of oil-importing nations set up to oppose the organization composed of oil- exporting countries. Earlier, the Japanese criticized U.S. economic policies, especially decisions by Washington to ration farm products and scrap metal to foreign buyers. Japan is a major customer of such products as soybeans and metal. At the same time, Washington wants to reduce its trade deficit with Japan, a total of $4.1 billion in 1972.
