PAPEETE, Tahiti (UPl) Scientists today readied yellow balloon, reportedly car rying a hydrogen bomb, for the second Mast in France'* controversial 1973 nuclear test program in the Pacific. The Paris newspaper L'Humanite said today the balloon was launched over the French nuclear testing site Friday on Mururoa Atoll, 720 miles southeast of Tahiti. ' But L'Humanite's report conflicted with word from the New Zealand defense m In is t r y, which said the scientists Had only inflated the balloon—not launched it. Paris news reports said the explosion would be much larger than the first one, set off last Saturday. New Zealand observers put that one in the five* kiloton category and said i't probably involved only a fission trigger to detonate the H-bomb. The next test, they said, would be in the one-megaton range-equivalent to one mil* allion tons of TNT and 50 times more powerful than the bomb the United States dropped on Hiroshima at the close of World Wafll, \ • \, ;. The New Zealand defense ministry announcement that the bayoon hid net been launched, quoted radio reports from the New Zealand navy protest ship Canterbury. The Canterbury has been. petroling the / waters off Mururoa for several days since taking over the govern ment 's protest action from the frigate Otago, which was sailing off the test site when the first blast wad set off, New Zealand, several other nations and independent groups —including the crew of the Sausalito, Calif., yacht Fri— have been protesting the French tests because of the danger of nuclear fallout. American David Moodie, 28, skipper of the Fri, his wife, Emma Young, and the vessel's other three crew rnembers-a New Zealandef, his pregnant wife and a Frenchman-were towed sway from Mururoa by French naval authorities shortly before the first explosion They are if Papeete, where they refused Friday to sign deportation documents, claiming they were forcibly removed from the danger tone. "A large yellow balloon used for nuclear testing was raised yesterday (Frittty) over Muru­ roa Atoll," Llfumanite said. "The second test in the present series will probably be held Saturday. Weather conditions (Friday) were not favorable and wind In the area has been blowing stmtgty." Scientists say pitted weather is required for the test to ensure against radioactive fail* out being blown toward heavily ported areas. Papeete is the nearest densely populated area to the test site.

IW'Vote in Favor Of Marcos Rule Flower Arrangements Debbie Hoosen, left, Galesburg, was chosen to represent the Warren County 4-H in flower arrangements at the Illinois State Fajr. Susan Johnson was selected first alternate. MANILA (UPI) - A two-day Pnilippines national referendum _.Jed today with all signs pointing toward a landslide vote in favor of indefinite rule by the martial law regime of President Ferdinand E. Mar cos. About 84 per cent of the votes counted said yes to the question of whether the 55-year-old Marcos, should continue in office past the December 1973 expiration date of his regular presidential term. The Commission of Elections reported that initial returns from Manila and the nearby province of Rizal showed 422,290 yes votes and 80,606 against. The referendum, originally scheduled only for Friday, was extended into today because of the heavy voter turnout, estimated at between 18 million to 20 million. Voting was compulsory, with | possible one-to-shwnonth prison terms for those who registered but failed to cast ballots. | Filipinos as young as 15 years, as well as illiterates, were allowed to vote for the first time. In effect, it was a test of confidence for Marcos, who has been ruling under martial law for the past 10 months. But Marcos has virtually silenced political opposition in the country since the imposition of martial law, including the arrests of several leading ! dissidents. Another factor in the vote was a program of reforms Marcos adopted under his so- called "New Society," including land reform and the seizure of nearly half a million firearms READ THE WANT ADS! Speaks at Monmouth George W. Lindberg, left, comptroller of the State of Illinois, was the feature speaker Thursday at a pork barbecue sponsored by the Warren County Young Republicans. Also pictured are Mrs. Lindberg and Jack Horner, a member of the Warren County group. Lindberg, addressing more than 600 persons, said there is a need for honesty in government. special team of military and police intelligence experts fori ed by President Salvador Allende today began investigating the terrorist assassination of his naval attache, Capt. Arturo Araya. Police said no arrests had been made. , Ten terrorists firing submachine guns from the street killed Araya on his second-floor bedroom balcony after luring him into the open by exploding two bombs in his garden. The pajama-clad officer returned the fire with his own subma chine gun before collapsing. Allende asked Congress to promote the 47-year-old father of four posthumously to rear admiral as, thousands of mourn ers filed past Araya's flag- draped coffin at the Presidential Palace, where his body lay in state. Burial was to be at the Naval Cemetery in Valparaiso, 65 miles west of Santiago. The government blamed the assassination on , the ultra- rightist Fatherland and Liberty movement, which has admitted masterminding the June 29 aborted military revolt outside the palace that left 22 persons dead. Allende said after an emergency National Security Council meeting Friday night he had -authorized- formation of the intelligence panel "to clarify and examine" alj aspects of the slaying. ; * The socialist president, expressing "profound sorrow and shock" over the killing, said he had requested Araya 's posthumous promotion because the naval officer "died in the act of service." Araya's assassination was the third major political crime in Chile since AHende's election in September, 1970. In October of that year, rightist extremists assassinated Gen. Rene Schneider, the army's commander in chief, in a bungled kidnaping intended to prevent Allende's inauguration a week later. In June of 1971, leftist terrorists assassinated Edmundo Perez Zujovic, interior minister in the previous Christian Democrat goverment. Government and opposition leaders, in a rare display of unity, joined Allende in condemning the killing. Sen. Eduardo Frei, who preceded Allende as president, said his opposition Christian Democrat party was "shocked and saddened" by the murder. The rightist National party said Araya was "a new innocent victim in the climate of hatred that is engulfing the nation." Heads Agency ST. LOUIS (UPI) - Gail L. Jtubbs, a retired Air Force colonel and former test pilot, was named Friday as the first permanent administrator for the Missouri-Si Louis Airport Authority, the group formed 18 months ago to press for expansion of Lambert Field.
