Exact Fare Helps End Bus Robberies LOS ANGELES (AP) - From 1961 to 1969 bus drivers for the Southern California Rapid Transit District were the victims of 1,636 robberies, one murder, numerous beatings, knifings and shootings. In 1970 there have been none. Vice P r e s i d e n t Kenneth Moore of the AFL-CIO United Transportation Union reported Wednesday the problem evidently was eliminated by requiring passengers to drop the exact fare into locked boxes. The system operates in Los Angeles and the neighboring, counties of Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino. Nobel Laureates Seek End Of War NEW YORK (AP) - Forty- three Nobel laureates in science have joined in a letter to President Nixon urging him to "rise to the heroism that these times demand and take swift and decisive steps" to end U.S. involvement in the war in Indochina. "We agree with the stand of many that the health of this nation depends on a swift disengagement from war in Southeast Asia although the violent tactics used by some to express this are repugnant to us," the scientists said. R. K. Mellon, Billionaire, Dies At 70 PITTSBURGH (AP) - Richard King Mellon demanded privacy, insisted on loyalty from his friends and associates and shared one of the nation's largest private fortunes with charity. The tycoon died .Wednesday after a four-day illness at West Penn Hospital. He was 70. Death was attributed to natural causes. Mellon was a shy man who avoided public appearances. The value of his wealth has never been revealed, but it had been estimated up to $3 billion. His charities totaled perhaps $70 million. He was the son of Richard B. Mellon. The elder Mellon and brother, Andrew W. Mellon, built their father's banking business into a financial empire which ultimately embraced huge holdings in such corporate giants as Gulf Oil Corp., the Aluminum Co. of America, Hoppers Co. and General Motors. Andrew became secretary of the Treasury under President Warren G. Harding in 1921, a year after his nephew Richard started his business training as a bank messenger. When Andrew Mellon died in 1939, his nephew took over direction of the family business interests. The bulk of Mellon's philanthropy was channeled through the R. K. Mellon Foundation. Since 1947 some $43 million had been distributed through this trust alone. Mellon served in both world wars and was a retired Army Reserve lieutenant general. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal for his World War n service. Personals Mr. Roger Nicodemus, son of Mr. and Mrs. Roger N. Nicodemus, 3 East 15th St., is a candidate for the Bachelor of music education degree at commencement exercises June 14 at Wittenburg University', Springfield, Ohio. Mr. Richard S. Foster, son of Mr. and Mrs. Walter D. Foster, RFD 5, has been named to the deans list at the College of Wooster, Wooster, Ohio. Mr. James R. Van Laan, son of Mr. and Mrs. Roger W. Van Laan, RFD 1, Mt. Airy, recently received the Freshman Writing Award at North Carolina Wesleyan College, Rocky Mount, N.C. He was also named to the deans list and is a member of the staff of the student newspaper. POLICE ALERTED With graduation just around the corner, city and state police have stepped up patrols of area high schools to prevent unnecessary vandalism of public properly. So far the vandalism re{ported by police has been minor. Nixon (Continued From Pag-3 One) agree with my policies. But I also have a solemn obligation to make the hard decisions which I find are necessary to protect the lives of the 400,000 young Americans remaining in Vietnam.** Nixon's critics in the Senate won a small measure of success just hours before the President's speech when they turned back an effort to gut a proposal to ban U.S. military operations in Cambodia after June 30. By a 54-36 vote, the Senate rejected a proposal sponsored by Kansas Republican Robert J. Dole to allow the President to continue use of American units in Cambodia as long as U.S. troops are held prisoner there. Dole's proposal was a rider to an amendment by Sens. Frank Church, D-Idaho, and John Sherman Cooper, R-Ky., to cut off all funds for U.S. military activity in Cambodia after Nixon's proclaimed withdrawal deadline. Also Wednesday, the House turned back an attempt by war critics to amend a bill raising the nation's debt limit to force a quicker withdrawal from Southeast Asia by cutting $6 billion in defense money. That effort failed on a procedural vote, 273 to 85. As expected, critics of Nixon's Cambodian decision remained critical after the speech, his supporters continued supporting. Chamber Group Holds Meeting The State and Local Affairs committee of the Frederick Chamber of Commerce met Thursday to discuss several legislative proposals. A proposal that will be considered this summer concerns the ownership of school buses. The proposal requests the government commission to study school bus matters regarding county - owned school buses in comparison with ownership by the contract system as done in Anne Arundel county. Another problem under study this summer will be the relationship of employes at a state and local level, particularly in union organizations. Committee members will study the Potomac River Compact at the same time state legislators discuss the problem. Under the compact, a commission consisting of representatives from each of the four states, the District of Columbia, and the federal government will administer the Potomac River Basin. They will deal with the numerous phases of environmental control. The Potomac River Compact is very similar to the Delaware Compact and the Susquehanna Compact. Tax assessment is another topic of discussion as well as the newly-proposed plumbing code. No decision was reached on any Issues by the committee pending further investigation and research.

THE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland Ttanfay, Joe 4, !«· Page A-5i LOCAL MENTIONS Chevron Oil Denies Guilt In Spillage NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Chevron Oil Co. has pleaded innocent to federal charges involving massive pollution of wa- ;ers of the Gulf of Mexico. "Chevron pleads not guilty to each of the 900 counts of the indictment," attorney Lawrence Senson said Wednesday at a rief arraignment in U.S. District Court. It was the first case of its kind and Asst. U.S. Atty. Julian Murray told the court it may get nto "a new field of law" before it's over. Judge Alvin B. Rubin gave Benson 60 days in which to prepare defense motions on the charges that Chevron failed to equip 90 of its offshore wells with safety devices. The judge set June 17 for i ear ing of Benson's motion for permission to read the secret record of the grand jury which indicted the firm. On Feb. 10, a cluster of Chevron's offshore wells blew wild at a control platform 30 miles off the Louisiana coast, southeast of New Orleans, Thousands of barrels of oil spewed into the Gulf before the last well was capped March 31. The indictment was the first under the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act of 1953. Each day of the violation cited was a separate offense carrying a maximum fine of $2,000- a possible total of ?L8 million.
