84 Alton Evening Telegraph Monday, Sept. 11, 1972 Accused slayer ready Juan Corona (left), 38-year-old farm labor contractor accused of slaying 25 migrant farm workers and burying their bodies in orchards, \vent on trial today at Fairfield, Calif. Attorney Richard Hawk (right) will defend him. (AP Wirephofo) SIUE newspaper bans ads from term paper firms The Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville student newspaper "The Alestle" has banned advertisements by professional term paper writing companies, and one of those companies, based in East Alton, has apparently ceased operating, in the wake of a new Illinois law that went into effect last Friday which makes the business illegal. The Alestle ran several ads for the East Alton firm "Confidential Research," in the past year. The Telegraph first, revealed in detail the Confidential Research operation in a series last November, when a Telegraph reporter posed as an applicant for a job writing papers which would be sub- in i 11 e d by college and university students as their own work. At that time, there was no law in Illinois ag'Unst the practice. One of the owners of Confidential Research, Wayne Jackson of. Alton, reportedly stated last week that his firm has gone out of business because he saw the "handwriting on the wall" with the passage of the Illinois legislation in June. The Telegraph was unable (o reach either Jackson or Jim Heymer. the representative of the firm that interviewed the Telegraph repealer, for comment today. The Alestle ran ads for term paper sales firms in St. Louis, Chicago, and Boston, as well as the East Alton firm, during the past school year. The Alestle stopped accepting the ads when the law which authorizes university presidents to get court injunctions to stop advertising and sale of the ghost-written papers, passed the Illinois legislature. The assistant advertising manager of the Alestle told the Telegraph today that the Alestle has recently received ad copy from term paper outfits in Weshington, D.C., California, and several in New York, but all the ads were being sent back and the firms told of the Alestle's new policy. The Alestle staffer said that the student paper had checked out the legality of the term apper companies before they began accepting the ads, but when the legislature then took action declaring the practice illegal, the Alestle then also stopped accepting the ads. Reymer had boasied to a Telegraph reporter last November that SIU-E faculty members as well as students had used Confidential Research papers as their own work, and that Confidential Research would even write correspondence course tests and papers for clients at a fee. Reymer said the firm hoped to eventually to have a staff of writers turning out papers full-time. He also boasted tlr-it although Confidential Research didn't guarantee it, virtually all of its papers got an "A" for the cl'ents. The Telegraph reporter wa; told later, after the series on Confidential Research was published, that Reymer, who gave his address as Wood River was dismissed from another job as an insurance salesman as a result of the aritcles and his connection with the term paper firm. Confidential Research's Jackson, told a newspaper reporter last week that he was selling insurance fulltime and had given up selling term papers altogether. Madison County is absent at circuit clerk suit hearini SPRINGFIELD - Madison County did not send a representative today to a hearing on the suit brought by Illinois circuit clerks who want their elections taken off the November ballot. Madison County clerk Eulalia Hotz along with the 101 other county clerks have been sued by the Illinois Circuit Court Clerks Association seeking to prevent an election for circuit clerk this year. The association, headed by Madison County Circuit Clerk Willard Porteli, is asking in circuit court here that an injunction be issued preventing the clerks from listing the office on the ballot. In previous action, attorneys for the group have said they regard the legislature's failure to designate the office as appointive or elective as meaning the present clerks should remain in office until the legislature acts. In testimony today, attorneys for six clerks and clerk candidates argued for dismissal of the case. Roland N. Litterst, assistant state's attorney for Pooria County, claimed the three circuit clerks who said they were filing on behalf of afl 102 circuit clerks weren't really and did not have any basis to sue. The clerks, he said, "are not being denied the right to vote. U'e are asking no vote be taken." "Since the voters would ask for an election," Littert said, "the clerks are not truly parties to the case." T h o m a s Londrigan, an attorney for Sangamon County circuit clerk candidates said the legal question of whether the legislature must act was "interesting but untenable" in that such a question could be easily be determined without any stopping of the election. Phillip Montalvo, attorney for St. Clair County Circuit Clerk Ed Whiting, agreed, saying urgency was not 'present in the case and that ihe court could decide the issue without the injunction. Circuit Court Judge Paul A. Verticchio, said he would continue hearing the case through today and tomorrow until some final determination was reached. In the state's larger counties, county clerks must certify the ballots by Wednesday. Olin says 110 price hike in brass products Olin Brass said today that it would not increase prices of its brass strip products at this time. However, the company said it would continue an in-depth study of fabricating costs and expected to announce any necessary adjustment in prices by Dec. 1 when its new labor contract becomes effective. Several other brass manufacturers earlier this week announced a brass strip gricp increase to become effective on Sept. 5. "Wf ftlBy recognize the need for improved profit levels ta tte brass strip industry, but we {eel a price tocreaje now would come too soon on the bells of the last advajjce on January 3," said I, W, Rube, president of the traw Group of m& Cor- poratfaa- Poor white children may */ he fatter than rich kids PHILADELPHIA (AP) Children in ptxir whip families are likely to be fatter than rich youths, four researchers say. A study of a.300 youngsters in Philadelphia, New York and Wilmington, Del., aUo showed a "surprising incidence of overweightness in young children in genera!,' one of the researchers. Dr. Ross D. Filion, said Sunday. Published in the current issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, the study shows that "marked differences" in weight appear by age 6 in upper and lower class children. The study limited us sample to white children — 2,300 in the upper socioeconomic group and «50 classified as pooi The researchers, all from the I'ai- ver.Mty of Pennsylvania, explained that differences in anthruponictric measure- 'n e n t s a in o n g various races caused the restriction. Of the children studied, 29 per cent of the girls from the lower socio-economic levels were obese at age 6 compared to three per cent of the upper level girls. The differences continued to age 18, but fell to a minimum at age 12, when 13 per cent of the poor girls and 9 per cent of the rich girls were overweight, the study indicated. "One might speculate thjt this had to do with considerable social pressure on women to be thin." Dr Filiun said. "This tends to be nvre true with the upper sofioeconomic class.' 1 Contracts awarded for 14 cancer research centers (JCdilors note: This past Fehniary federal legislation went into effect to speed and expand what the Nixon administration called a crusade •against, cancel'. Following is a status report on that effort.) Bv FRANK CAHi;y AP Science Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The stcppcd-up federal battle against cancer is pushing ahead on a variety of fronts, from fresh monev for new buildings to car •.•< r-control efforts once largely left to private medicine. In the latest development, the National Cancer Institute has awarded $44 million in construction grants to 17 U.S. medical-research institutions. Award of the grants, soon to be announced formally, means the first time in almost a decade that the government has provided funds for con- Mniction work in the cancer field. The cancbf institute is administering the $!)00-million- a-year drive that seeks improved, means of detecting, preventing, controlling and curing all forms of cancer. NCI officials say cancer program costs will range from about a dime a day to feed each of millions of laboratory mice and rats to the $25,000 to $36.000 annual salaries for top researchers. The building grants will provide new facilities, ranging from a 15-story research hospital for adult cancer patients in Boston to a unique project at the University of New Mexico Medical School in Albuquerque, says Dr. George Jay of NCI. At the New Mexico site, a special unit will be built to prepare cancer patients for transport to the Atomic Energy Commission's nearly completed "meson factory" in Los Alamos, 90 miles away. There, pioneer trials are planned of a new type of powerful ray that may be useful for treating cancer. NCI already has announced award of a $(5.8 million contract to a private biological research firm to convert the former Army germ-warfare laboratories at nearby Ft. Detrick, Md., into a cancer research center and operate it for at least the first year. The Detrick contract, largest ever awarded by any arm of the' government's National Institutes of Health, was obtained by Litton Hionetics Inc., a subsidiary of Litton Industries, Inc. T h e contract, labeled award - fep. is the first of its kind in the history of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare. The contractor has no guaranteed profit. What he makes depends upon the quality and effectiveness of his work, up to a certain fixed ceiling. Its tasks include producing "literally buckets-full" of viruses known to cause cancer in animals, for use by researchers throughout the country, according to Dr. Robert Stevenson, who will manage the Detrick facility. He says it also will be a major national center for the breeding of laboratory mice, rats, guinea pigs, rabbits and monkeys. Here is a rundown on other developments in the anticancer drive: Since Feb- 23, the date the National Cancer Act of 1971 became effective, $1!J.8 million has been awarded fur 138 research contracts to both profitmaking and nonprofit organizations, including .54.9 million of the $6.8 million Detrick contract. About $15.6 million in grants other than the $44 million in construction grants have been awarded. Almost completed is a master plan detailing the strategy for achieving the "expanded, intensified and coordinated cancer research program" called for in the act. Ahead of the master plan, NCI already is moving :n some new directions, says Louis Carrese, an associate director. Among them is a multimil- 1 i o n - d o 11 a r program of research into some of the major fatal cancers, including malignancies of the bladder, large bowel and prostate gland, which NCI officials say have not received the attention they deserve. Clinical and basic research has been expanded also into breast and lung cancer, which have been the objects of intensive study for some years. NCI officials say, for example, that efforts are being pushed to automate the Pap test so that more women may be screened . for possible cancer of the cervix. Dr. Gio Gori, an NCI associate director, says the institute is pushing ahead with plans to play a much more active role than before in cancer control efforts nationwide. Plans include establishing programs for cooperating with state and other health agencies in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer and rehabilitation of its surviving victims. Cancer-control programs that include public education are to be one of the major missions of an envisioned national network of comprehensive cancer research and demonstration centers, the first 15 of which are provided for in the new legislation. On the international scene, NCI has worked to swap with Soviet scientists a number of viruses and promising new anticancer drugs, establish liaison offices in Japan and Europe to foster cooperation in the quest for better drags, and allocate special laboratories at Ft. Detrick for joint research by American and foreign scientists, including researchers from the Soviet Union and mainland China. Finally, it's seeking to develop an international cancer research data bank ?o that eventually researchers in all parts of the world can share their results through a system of computers. U.

(AP Wirephoto) By WILLIAM N. OATIS UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) - The United States cast its second veto in the history of the U.N. Security Council Sunday night. It killed a resolution demanding a halt to Israeli reprisal raids but making no mention of the Arab terrorism that provoked the raids. Tre veto came after an all- day debate on the Palestinian guerrilla massacre of Israeli Olympic athletes in Munich Tuesday and Israeli air strikes Friday at reputed guerrilla positions in Syria and Lebanon. China and the Soviet Union earlier had vetoed amendments that would have applied the resolution to terrorist activities as well a military operations. U.S. Ambassador George Bush said their vetoes killed "a very important passage that could have made the resolution more acceptable." Explaining his own veto, he said the resolution ignorec realities and "looked to effeci but not to cause." Its "silence on the disaster in Munich invited more terrorism, he said. "We seek and support a world in which athlete^ need not fear assassins and passen gers on planes need not fear hijacking, Bush declared. Bush got applause from the gallery for his veto. And Israeli Ambassador Yosel Tekoah, absent because of the Jewish New Year, told newsmen by telephone that the U.S. vote would be "applauded by the people of Israel." Soviet Ambassador Jacob A. Malik spoke of "the distressing events which occurred in Munich" but said to put them on the same footing as the new Israeli raids would be "condoning the aggressive policy of the Israeli maniacs." Chinese Ambassador Huang Hua, presiding over the council for the first time since Peking entered the world organization late last year, also referred to "the unfortunate incident" in Munich but then said that the Palestinians and other Arabs had been "compelled to take up arms ... to recover their homelands" from Israel. Ambassadors H a i s s a m Kelani of Syria and Edouard Ghorra of Lebanon, who had asked for the meeting, registered dissatisfaction. Ghorra said he was "deeply disappointed" by the U.S. veto and could not let the matter rest. But both he and Kelani called the resolution that failed too weak. The resolution, sponsored by Somalia, Guinea and Yugoslavia, noted "the deteriorating situation in the Middle East" and called on "the parties concerned to cease immediately all military operations and exercise the greatest restraint." Corona goes on trial in farm slay ings FAIRFIELD, Calif. (AP) Farm-labor contractor Juan Corona goes on trial here today charged with slaying 25 itinerant farm workers, whose hacked bodies were found in shallow peach-orchard graves along the Feather River beginning May 20, 1971. By the time the 10th had been discovered, six days later, Corona was arrested. He • later was charged with murdering all 25, four of whom never have been identified. All were middle aged or older white men, and many were known around skid rows in Yuba City and Marysville, near where the killings took place. Corona, 38, has pleaded innocent. Some 200 witnesses are to testify and hundreds of pieces of evidence are to be examined in the case, which District Atty. G. David Teja of Sutler County admits is purely circumstantial. The case was moved here to Solano County on grounds Corona could not get a fair trial in Sutler County, where the bodies were found. Superior Court Judge Richard E. Patton of (Vlusa County, especially assigned to try the case, has agreed he will question separately each of some 100 prospective jurors summoned in the first venire to make sure they have not been prejudiced by publicity Writers AIIWW .»» fw5«o* fottf* ACROSS 1 English poet, Alexander-— S Jonson 8 Roman moralist 12 Tiny particle 13 Cretan mount 14 Tints 15 prosequl 16 Changes course 18 Gives for a price 20 County in Wyoming 21 Nevertheless 23 Little (dial.) 24 Up-to-date 27 Psalm word 31 Italian seaport 32 Conger 34 Utah lily 35 Fish sauce 36 Chinese "way" 37 Kierkegaard, for example 38 Poet, Kainer Maria 40 Italian essayist 42 Somewhat (suffix) 44 Son of (prefix) 45 English philosopher 49 Leaves out 53 Diminished 55 Imported cheese 56 Italian river 57 Route (ab.) 58 Hawaiian bird 59 European capital 60 Longing (coll.) 61 Surfeit raisiNra IIMI^ Iisira MMISI 'DOWN 1 Kitchen items 2 Siouan Indian (var.) 3 Opinion survey 4 American poet (both names) 5 Invite 6 Biblical garden 7 Of ships 8 English novelist (both names) 9 Self (comb, form) 10 Adolescent year 11 Greek mountain 17 Sickness (suffix) 10 View 22 Waste allowance 24 African country 25 Soviet city 2fi Kind of tide 28 Incline 29 Hindu Rod 30 Garden tool 31 Prevent 33 Kind of north 39 Verb suffix 41 Dance step 43 American writer 45 Dish made with cabbago 46 Persian elf 47 Anglo-Saxon serf 48 Network (nnat.) 50 Mental image 51 Breathe heavily 52 Pintail duck 54 Lair (NEWSPAPER ENTERPRISE ASSN.)
