THE NEWS, Frederick, Blocked Roads Hamper Quake Relief In Peru LIMA, Peru (AP) - Bad weather and blocked roads coo- timed to hamper efforts today to get rescue workers into the earthquake-shattered Huaylas Canyon high in the Peruvian Andes. The towns of Yungay, Carax and Huaraz in the canyon were almost totally destroyed in the earthquake which rumbled through half of Peru Sunday. Government officials feared as many as 30,000 people were killed, but broken communications still prevented anything Asian Fleet Head LaudsNixon Policy AiNNAPOLB, W. (AP) The commander-in-chief of all U.S. forces in the Pacific praised President Nixon's Vietnam policies today, but warned that peace in Southeast Asia "is not just around the corner." Adm. John McCain Jr. told the graduating class at the U.S. Naval Academy that "the president's policy is sound and the current plan for withdrawal of 150,000 men is both safe and reasonable, particularly in view of our success in Cambodia." The 830-man class, of which 720 were commissioned ensigns in the Navy, heard McCain tell them that "the challenges for the military officer have never been greater and service to country never more meaningful." It was an unadorned pep talk, as McCain spoke fervently of "your heritage," highest traditions of naval service," and "the greatest sacrifice that a man can make for his country." "You will not question where your duty lies," McCain said. "Thefuture of the country wUl rest in your hands. I am proud of the United States Navy. I am proud of you," he said. June Week had really climaxed for all but the graduating class with Tuesday's Color Parade-the traditional ceremony started 99 years ago during which the company accumulating the most points during the year based on scholarship, athletics, and leadership is awarded the honor of carrying the national and brigade colors for the rest of the year. It is then that the Color Girl, selected for that honor by the commander of the winning company, transfers the colors. This year there was only a ceremonial transfer, since the 32nd company had won the competition for the second straight year. But pretty Sheryl Lacy, a 19- year-old coed from Kent State University, did her duties with dispatch, aided by Midshipman Edmund P. Giambastiani Jr., commander of the 32nd who had selected her as this year's Color Girl. like an accurate tally of casualties. In Yungay, about 240 miles north of Lima, only 2,500 residents reportedly survived out of the population of 20,000, a high government official said. Information Director Augusto Zimmerman said many people who ran into the narrow streets of the Andean villages and towns were killed by falling rocks and debris from the canyon walls. A surging tide of water from Lake Llanganuco added to the destruction. «· The air force managed to drop a squad of 34 rescue workers Tuesday at Huaraz, at the south entrance of the gorge. HumanGene Created By Scientists MADISON, Wis. (AP) Scientists have created a gene in the laboratory, a feat that raises questions about the possibility of starting life itself in a test tube. The announcement of the first man-made gene- the basic unit of heredity that controls all life processes- was made Tuesday by a team headed by a Nobel Prize winner, Dr. H. Gobind Khorana. The- University of Wisconsin team said genes can be made completely from simple organic chemicals. Khorana, who won a 1968 Nobel for earlier work on the ge- Middle East Talks Okayed By Soviets INITIATES NEW MEMBERS - On Wednesday evening, May 28, the Frederick Lodge of BPO Elks 684 initiated five new members into the Order.

Effect Of Youth Lobby For Peace Waites Votes WASHINGTON (AP) - The Soviet Union has agreed to more talks with the United States in an effort to find a political solution to the increasingly war-like Arab-Israeli confrontation. But the agreement, understood to have been reached during a 40-minute meeting Tuesday between Secretary of State William P. Rogers and Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin, is not expected to lead to any immediate settlement. It was also understood the Soviet official refused to disclose any new background to the Russian strategy in providing pilots * and increasing numbers of missile technicians to Egypt. An earlier Soviet response had been declared imprecise and unsatisfactory by American officials and this latest refusal to go into more detail was expected to add to the pressure for a new sale of U.S. warplanes to Israel. Rogers called in the Soviet ambassador to stress the "seriousness with which we regard the (Mideast;) situation, particularly because of the Soviet military involvement," a spokesman said. Dobrynin agreed with the Secretary of State on the need for "renewed efforts toward achieving a political solution" to the Mideast conflict, the spokesman added. But the Kremlin envoy, just returned from Moscow, was understood to have given no further explanation of the Soviet buildup beyond the "imprecise and unsatisfactory" U.S. officials said netic code, said the new work might eventually allow scientists to manipulate the biology of a living system. Some scientists have said in the past that it might be 25 to 100 years before this new knowledge of genetics can be put to work in man. The first likely application Ambassador Jacob Beam received in Moscow a month ago. Washington wants to know the Soviet intent in sending pilots and modern antiaircraft missiles to Egypt. The administration is concerned over whether the Russians are trying to protect Egypt or planning to help conduct an offensive attack against Israel. would be in genetic engineering -- perhaps infecting humans with viruses that carry new genes, genes that would cure hereditary diseases such as hemophilia. By making and giving substitute genes, man may be able to make people smarter or taller. Scientists may be able to turn off the growth of cancer cells. A first simple life form that might be made in the test tube is a virus. Even this, however, could be dangerous. A man-made virus response might be so unusual that noth- American ing would exist to control it. So while scientists are moving closer to control of biological processes, they also are moving closer to dangers and the problems of the possible misuse of this mastery. Who Would be given the power to make decisions about heredity control? This question is one of profound concern to many scientists working with genetics. WASHINGTON (AP) - The legions of young people who came to Capitol Hill in the wake of the U.S. attack into Cambodia to lobby for peace have won praise from congressmen for their performance, but it will take roll calls on key antiwar measures to calculate their conquests, if any. An Associated Press survey shows most senators and representatives on both sides of the Indochina issue credited the students at least for their conduct. As for their goal of gaining powerful new allies, the most encouraging word for the students came from one of their most enthusiastic backers, Sen. Alan Cranston, D-Calif. Cranston claims at least two senators, after visits by the youths, switched and now favor an amendment to restrict future U.S. involvement in Cam. bodia. He declined to name the senators. However, most other senators and congressmen agree the young lobbyists' impact cant really be determined until the votes are counted. According to many of those who listened to the voices of hundreds-- some estimate thousands- of young, it was a generally peaceful exercise in communication, although not all the congressmen liked what they heard, "Some were on a lark," said Rep. Silvio 0. Conte, R-Mass M a Nixon war policy critic and supporter of the youthful campaign, "but most of them were very serious kids with lots of dedication. They're clean-cut, good- looking youngsters." However, Rep. John R. Rarick, D-La., who supports President Nixon on Vietnam, said he met with young people here and in his home state and found "no matter what you tell them, unless you agree completely with them, they are never satisfied. "I think some of them hurt themselves by their demands," he added. "There has been some backlash but it is hard to estimate how much." On the other hand, Sen. George D. Aiken, R-Vt., said: "I thought they were more effec- uve than any similar action that we've ever had before. "I tried to impress on them,* he continued, "that taking part n politics is more importanl ian demonstrating. I expect they will be more politically ac tive this fall. "Their earnestness impressed me as much as anything Whether they changed any minds or not, they may have influenced some to proceed with greater caution," Aiken said. Blair Lauds Agnew For New Dimension WESTMINSTER, Md. (AP)Vice President Spiro Agnew was praised Tuesday night for bringing a new dimension to the office of the vice presidency by his former administrative assistant, C. Stanley Blair. Blair, introduced at an annual insurance meeting by Earl Seipp of the Carroll County Association of Life Underwriters as an unemployed public servant, recently resigned. He is expected to announce his candidacy in this year's Maryland guvernatorial race. Blair said Agnew has given the vice president's office new meaning as far as the executive department is concerned and then he moved on to praise President Nixon's decision to send U.S. troops into Cambodia. He called Nixon's decision courageous in view of the current climate of protest nationwide. With June comes some exciting SPECIALS in upholstered Furniture.
