IRA LAND Correspondent Roseville P. O. Box 145 Phone 426-2642 ROME (UPI) — A nervous and trembling Elizabeth Taylor was reunited today with an equally nervous Richard Button in this eternal city where their flaming romance that scandalized Italy was ignited 11 years ago during the filming of the movie "Cleopatra." There was a hug and a kiss and the two drove into Rome in a Rolis'Royce without a formal statement. The Burtons parted July 3 when Miss. Taylor walked out of their New York hotel suite with a statement that she had separated but hoped with all her heart to return to the man she loved. Miss Taylor, accompanied by two dogs and a cat, arrived in Rome aboard a private jet today to patch up the marriage. She had been in Los Angeles visiting her ailing mother and Burton had been in Moscow attending a film festival. Miss Taylor stayed aboard her jet for more than 20 minutes before disembarking to meet Burton, who had been waiting more than an hour in a green Rolls-Royce outside the airport. Miss Taylor wore blue jeans, a matching jean jacket and sunglasses as she strode through the lounge toward the waiting car. Burton, wearing a red sports jacket and a white polo shirt, did not leave the car to greet his wife and nervously tapped his fingers on the leather upholstery, glancing out Militiaman Shot if X , m w0 1 Double Trouble Lawrence Archdale from Fairview will show his 6-horse hitch of Percherons, and Miles McGrew's 6-horse draft from Walnut Grove will be here for the parade which will commence at 11 a.m. Other entries expected to appear in the parade are antique autos; church, civil and social organization floats, antique bicycles and velocipedes.

UNIFAX 40,000 Libyans Marching Toward Cairo •n MERSA MATRUH, Egypt (UPI) — Hundreds of vehicles in a motorized march of 40,000 Libyans defied Egyptian authorities today and drove through this Mediterranean resort toward Cairo to further their dream of uniting Egypt and Libya on Sept. 1. In an apparent effort to avoid violence, the Egyptian customs post at Salloum was evacuated by officials to permit free passage of the marchers supporting Libyan leader Col. Moammar Khadafy's demand for complete unity with Egypt by that date. Barriers Smashed But in a symbolic "smashing of barriers to unity" promised by the Libyan marchers, a bulldozer emerged from the column of vehicles and crum- ^ Prison Inmate „ Worships Devil C HOUSTON (UPI) - An ,,, inmate at the Texas prison at ,, Huntsville filed a federal suit against state prison officials Thursday saying inmates were « d^ed their constitutional right 2 to worship the devil. Fredrick R. Drown Sr., serving a 15-year term for aimed robbery, said prison officials have persecuted inmates because of their belief in Satan, and placed some of themi in solitary confinement. I bled four wooden customs sheds into the desert sand. The bulldozer also demolished a small brick house used by the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism. On the orders of President Anwar Sadat, strong Egyptian political contingents tried to stop the 1,500-mile "unity march" at Mersa Matruh, 120 miles inside Egypt. But hundreds of cars, taxis and buses just kept going along the coastal road. Others in the 2,000-vehicle motorcade halted at the tents arranged by the Egyptians to accommodate them. The Egy- tians had assembled 50 Bedouin children to present flowers and 1,500 pigeons for release as a welcoming gesture. They also slaughtered 150 sheep for a traditional Arab welcome. Heading for Cairo "We thank you for the reception," one of the Libyans told the Egyptian greeters, "but we are heading for Cairo." Contacted by telephone in Tripoli, an official of the Libyan news agency said, "Our position is that we will push on to Cairo for the unity demonstration." He estimated the number of marchers who crossed the frontier into Egypt this morning at 40,000. There were no members of Libya's ruling Revolutionary Command Council among the marchers. Technically it was a spontaneous mass gesture, organized by the "People's Committees" Khadafy formed to carry out the cultural revolution he launched April 16. Trailer Truck Spills 4,000 i According to the original schedule, they planned to assemble at the pyramids 12 miles from downtown Cairo From there they planned to march to the Abdin Palace offices of Sadat and present a petition, written in blood, demanding unity by Sept. 1. They also planned to stage a sit-down strike in the square "until the unity agreement is signed." In appealing to Khadafy to call off the march on Wednesday, the day it started, Sadat warned of the "dangers" which a mass demonstration in Cairo could create.
