Phone mail Oquawka Man Is Questioned In Connection With Thefts MONMOUTH— An Oquawka men was being questioned this morning by Monmouth police in conjunction with two robberies ana two purse-snatching incidents which occurred here during the past week. Police declined comment on the case, but the suspect was identified by Henderson County authorities as a Clifton Hunter. Hunter reportedly had been living in a trailer in Oquawka for the past month. Lawmen were tipped off to the suspect's whereabouts after one of the purses was found near the junction of 111. 164 and 111. 94 after it apparently was thrown from a car. The purse was turned over to Henderson County Sheriff Daryl Thompson. Hunter's car was spotted Friday about 4 p.m. at a service station west of Monmouth, and state troopers, thinking he might be heading for Iowa, waited for him at the McArthur Bridge between GuKport and Burlington. The suspect never showed up, instead apparently going to his home. Today about 9:30 a.m., Monmouth police officers William Sage and Mickey Tinder, while on patrol on West Broadway, observed a car with no license plates and followed it north to the 100 block of North E Street. The car then speeded up, veered across the yard of the Roy Carrell home at 124 N. E St., went west on West Archer Avenue and then south on G Street where it crashed into two cars parked at the Robert Angelo home. One of the parked cars was nearly demolished, police said, and the other was heavily damaged. One of the alleged robber's, victims told reporters today that she had identified Hunter from Monmouth police photos. An armed robber, matching the description of a bandit who held up a Monmouth cleaning establishment Tuesday, leaned with $52 Friday after brandishing a knife at the Glendora Shop on Market Alley. Monmouth police said that a young, male Negro entered the small firm Friday at about noon and broused through the store before demanding that Mrs. Glenn Shaver, the owner, turn over the money in the cash register. Police said that Mrs. Shaver refused the bandit's demand until he produced a knife. She then permitted him to clean out the cash drawer. The robber left the shop on foot and Mrs. Shaver said she followed him into a parking lot on South First Street, but that he dodged behind cars and nearby buildings until she lost sight of him. She then reported the theft to the police. Mrs. Shaver told investigating officers that the suspect matched a description provided by Mrs. Lois Breen who was forced to turn over $92 to a knife-carrying bandit on Tuesday at Breen Cleaners at 401 N.

(UPI) - A distant relative of President George Washington urged a constitutional amendment Friday to counter President Nixon's definition of the separation of powers. State Sen. Nat Washington, an attorney and Democrat from Ephrata, Wash., said Congress should quickly consider an amendment, or the 50 states should initiate one by calling a constitutional convention. Washington is a fifth great- grandson of George Washington's brother, John. He has been a member of the'the congressional delegation Washington state Legislature from the state of Washington to He said he will ask the legislature to start action on his proposal at a scheduled special session next month. A constitutional convention may be called by two thirds of the states. In a separate letter to the state's congressional delegation, Washington said he was "appalled" at Nixon's argument that neither the courts nor Congress could force release of tapes and records relating to the Watergate scandal. "To prevent President Nixon from distorting the doctrine, it would be especially fitting for advocated by President Washington in his farewell address," Washington said. He quoted part of his great- uncle's farewell address which warns of a consolidation of power in one constitutional branch "and thus creates, whatever the form of government, a real despotism." Another quoted section says, "If in the opinion of the people the distribution or modification of the constitutional powers be in any particular wrong, let it be corrected by an amendment in -the way which the Constitu- since 1950. I follow the method specifically ;tion designates," he said. Legion Post's Auxiliary Names New Officers MONMOUTH - New officers for the Marion B.

HOUSTON (UPI) - The Skylab 2 astronauts, who happened to see a spectacular explosion on the surface of the sun during their day off, scan the solar surface in earnest today hoping to unlock some secrets that might lead to solving the energy crisis. They also planned to take pictures on the Earth's resources on opposite sides of the world. Alan L. Bean, Owen K. Garriott and Jack R. Lousma each planned to take a turn manning the complex battery of Skylab solar-study instruments, hoping for another explosion on the sun like one recorded Friday during a leisurely day off. Bean and Lousma also were to train the orbiting space station's Earth Resources cameras on the western United States and Central America, and on Southeast Asia, Indonesia and Australia during separate sweeps of the globe. Garriott Spots Eruption Garriott, a scientist-astronaut who has authored books on solar physics, was doing routine observation when he spotted the solar eruption of gaseous material shooting off the western edge of the sun. It was bigger than the entire mass of the Earth. Dr. Ernest Hildner of the high altitude observatory, Boulder, Colo., one of the scientists studying Skylab data on the sun, said the material was directed away from the Earth. But if it had come this direction, he said it would have caused a massive magnetic storm and disrupted radio communications worldwide. "It's truly spectacular," Hildner said. "Boom—just blown off the sun. A great deal of mass was ejected, very violently, and this is quite a rare phenomenon. Garriott said the weather on Earth is very directly related to the sun's atmosphere, and "the more we know about the sun, the better its teeming energy can be harnessed for use on Earth. Studies Indicate Use "There have been studies which would indicate that some fairly large fraction of our ultimate energy needs might come from the sun," he said. "The more we know about the sun, the better we eventually may be able to use it as an energy source. "Eventually it could power street lights, power light bulbs in our homes and it could even be converted and used as a fuel in our automobiles." Flight controllers were still thinking of giving a drop of astronaut blood to Skylab mascots Arabella and Anita, two household spiders being studied to see how they spin webs in weightlessness, to spice up a tiny bite of rare filet mignon they've been given to eat. Officials want to keep the spiders alive so they can be studied at the end of the two- month mission, and rare steak is the closest thing aboard the lab to their normal diet of live insects.
