The convention last Friday :' gave Its endorsement for the U. S. Senate seat that Collins seeks to former Gov. Endicoll Peabody. Returning from i mayors' conference to Dallas, Tex., Collins said U his voice seemed "unduly harsh or »trldent" It was because he was trying to make himself heard "over the boos and raucous conduct of my opponents' njpporterj."

The result was a recurrence of a Wall Street "peace scare" based on fears that cutbacks in military production would cause economic dislocations. »9 Stocks DOHD At the final bell, 599 stocks were below, Tuesday's closing prices . and 5?9 were above those levels.

In Ms convention speech, Collins said John E. Powers, former slate Senate President and now clerk of the Supreme Court, had used power politics to aid Peabody and gain "revenge" /or the 1959 elections when Co!, lins defeated Powen for Mayor. "By this time, everyone knows that what I said about Mr. Powers" activities and motivations must be true, because he, himself, repeatedly and unctously confirmed those, facts that very night to every television Inter- Tlewer h« tould corral," Collins nld Wednesday night. Collins cited later remarks by former Presidential aide Kenneth O'Donnell, de/ealed for the endorsement for governor, about "the pressures, the promises, the persuasions, and the outright threats to delegates." Collins said he had 873 delegates, enough to win, promised to him when the session opened, but only 721 when the roll call was completed. Collins also said he will run "simutaneously" against Peabody and state Ally. Gen. Edward W. Brooke,. Brooke !s expected to be endorsed for the seat by the Republican State Convention. "I do not intend to permit the Peabody candidacy to divert or postpone the attention give to Mr. Brooke, said. I shaE Collins as fined for teaching Darwinian olution. Thus far, the King seems to be conclling progress with Islamic nservalism in the land ol the ly places, Mecca and Medina, t he is walking a light rope. Sheik AMdazIz Bin Baz, vice esldent of the Islamic imiver- y at Medina, wrote an article In two Arabic ncwspa- re (controlled, like all others, · the government) on 20 Rama- an If the Moslem year 1385, or anuary II, 1966. In It he said: "Much publicity has been given . to the theory that the earth tales and the sun Is fixed . , I ought it my duty to write a rief essay that would guide the ader to the proofs of the falsity of this theory and to rMHi*Hon of the truth... Hence I «ay the Holy Koran, the prophet's teaching, the majority of Islamic jcien- lists and the actual (act all prove that the sun is running In its or- as Almighty Cod ordained, and that the earth is fixed and stable, spread out by God for his mankind and made a bed and a cradle for them fixed down (irmly by mountains lest it shake." The article included many sp- posite verses from the Koran and quotations from the traditional teachings of the prophet and the sages of Islam. "Anyone who professed otherwise would utter infidelity and deviation, because such an act is a charge of falsehood toward God, the Koran and the jirophet," Bin Baz continued. "And any person who diarges tin Ataljhty, Ui boty bcok «r M* prophet with falsehood is t deviated «nd deviating infidel, who should be asked to renounce this attitude and repent or else be executed to die an apostate and infidel whose wealth then goes to the Moslem public treasury." The Sheik added; "Inasmuch as this theory is Inconsistent with Islamic teachings »nd law, It is also contradictory to fact and equivocal in logic and reason. Human beings ... set me wn running, whether rising or setting, and the earth fixed «nd «table and every town and mountain In its own place. None of these things has moved er changed. If the earth were totaling, ae has been claimed, towns, mountains, trees, rivers and eas would have no liability, and people would have teen the towns of the East on the West and the towns of the West en the Ea»t." Copies of the article found their way to Cairo, where the prui w»s delighted to aee a new indication of "Saudi reaction and backwardness." One newspaper, Al ilusa- war, proclaimed gleefully that Saudi Arabia had decided the earth was flat. Under pressure at borne, Sheik Bui Bat wrote t second article published May Jl saying he kad not announced the earth was flat but only that tie earth was fixed and that UK sun revolved arowd U and that those who claimed otherwise should be punished. Jkkiah and Riyad, the main cities of Saudi Arabia, buzzed excitedly about the controversy, but the aecular university at Hi- yad has continued to teach Western astronomy and celestial mechanics. Although Saudi Arabia's only constitution Is the Koran, no one has demanded that the pro- lesson who Ml tak riudeaii *· earth turnj on its axis and rotates around the «m *ouW recant. · When a visiting Joumatet Interviewed the King the other day, he was warned In advance by court officials that the King must not be asked to comment directly on Sheik Bin Baz'i view*. But the King did reply to a question on the problem of reconciling progress with tradilion, Illustrated with a reference, to Galileo. 'We have our bailc^Sharia or Islamic law, which calls ior and urges everything that Is good and In the Interest of humanity," the King said. "We cannot Hindly accept all that it called progress but must «lft out the good and reject the bad. Since Islamic law prohibits nothing good, there Is no problem. There may be difference* of Interpretation, but the law can resolve such differences. "Things that are good for the an Ufa* kitrodu««4. fa forernmtnl, we «llow n, ^ clei to food tiling!.

Jamil Hujtilan, the mlnUtu tt Information, said later: "Tw King cannot be involved in sucfc a controversy, but I can, beca^i U i. make a mistake, I sm K. pendable.
