Page 2-THE HERALD, Provo. Utah, Sunday, April 13, 1975 Fall of Cambodia Capital Expected (Continued from Page 1) work you ever saw." Outside, a Cambodian asked quietly, "Are you going away? A Marine security guard hauled down the American flag from its second-floor staff, folded it in a three-corner package and carried it with him aboard the final evacuation helicopter. Minutes after the helicopter swung away, 15 rocket and mortar rounds smashed into the area around the embassy building. Adm. Noel Gayler, who directed the operation from Camp Smith, Hawaii, said "the operation was very much in the American tradition where Americans look out after their own. "Our hearts all go out tonight to the Cambodians in Phnom Penh, who will have a very tough time,. "Gayler added. Dean arrived in Bangkok at dusk Saturday and went immediately to the U.S. Embassy there, "I'm going upstairs and do some work," he said. He declined further comment. Another U.S. spokesman said, "We tried to go out with some dignity." Some of the evacuees were taken aboard the carrier to the Thai port of Sattahip near U Tapao, 100 miles to the southeast—the base from which U.S. B52 bombers launched heavy raids against Communist forces throughout the Indochina War. *Ho/f Agency Swamped By Adoption Phone Calls (Continued from Page 1) the phone company with requests to make sure the phones were busy and there was no technical problems." A telephone operator in Eugene verified this. "We installed the answering service to help handle the congestion," she said. The operator added that no charge is made on the call should the caller receive the message that the lines to the agency are busy and that he should make another attempt to call. Mr. Gutherie added that Holt is processing children for homes that had applied previously for children. "We are telling people to not submit any adoption *Ford (Continued from Page 1) cials told reporters Ford would not ask again for Cambodian ad because the situation there left no room for "a plausible request." The presidential aide who spoke anonymously with newsmen Saturday said Ford decided to make another try when he learned that Cambodia's Premier Long Boret and other top officials had refused to be evacuated. Boret announced he was forming a "revolutionary committee" to see the battle through. The aide disclosed Ford knew the evacuation was being prepared even as headdressed Congress Thursday night, but he said the President was assuming most members of the U.S.-backed government would leave with the Americans. Congress Mulls Budget Cut Close to Ford's WASHINGTON (UPI) Compelled by a new law to decide in advance how much it intends to spend Congress is considering budget targets remarkably close to President Ford's. Both House and Senate Budget committees —perhaps cowed by the inevitability of the biggest deficit in history in fiscal 1976 —have called for far less spending than many economists favor as antirecession stimulus. The House committee adopted a recommended budget of $368.2 billion which is only 3.5 per cent larger than Ford's. The Senate committee's $365 billions only 2.6 per cent over the resident's recommendations.

Mr. Gutherie added that Holt staff members are still in Saigon and will not be evacuated until such time that is becomes absolutely necessary. "We brought out 385 children that were in our care and another 18 under the care of the Pearl Buck Foundation. Normally, it takes four to six months to process the paperwork and get a child to the U.S.,"he said. He reported that a blanket exit permit from the Saigon government and a blanket entrance permit from the U.S. government was responsible for getting the children out within one week after the request. "Adoption application rate has jumped at least a thousand per cent since the beginning of the 'Babylift' that has captured the headlines," he said. "And those are just from people who've been able to get through to our staff." Utah Mother Of Year Announced SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) Mrs. Elva Acklam Stark, traffic safety and environmental crusader, has been named Utah's Mother of the Year for 1975. The Salt Lake mother of three was chosen from 12 candidates, according to Mrs. Caroline E. Miner, president of the Utah Mothers Association, Saturday. Mrs. Stark, whose husband Dr. Arvil L. Stark is a renowned horticulturist, was honored at an award ceremony at the Assembly Hall on Temple Square Saturday afternoon. She will represent Utah at the American Mother of the Year contest in New York next month. She is active in PTA, Scouts, Camp Fire Girls, was chairman of the Holladay Environmental Improvement of the Holladay Environmental Improvement Program and is litter control chirman of the Utah Associated Garden Clubs. Mrs. Stark has won national awards for her work in traffic safety. She was reference librarian at the University of Utah library for 16 years and retired from that post last summer. Her own mother Maud Osborn Acklam lives in Salt Lake City and celebrated her 100th birthday last December. Mrs. Stark was born in Racine, Wise., and came to Utah after her marriage. "We came in an old Model A Ford," she recalled, "and all the way 1 was singing 'Let the Rest of the World Go By.'" Temple Square Window Put Back in Place SALT LAKE CITY <UPD After more than four months, a window broken by a rockthrowing vandal has been replaced at the Visitor's Center on Temple Square. Officials of the LDS Church said it took all that time just to get the 600 pound piece of glass from a manufacturer in California. The curved and tinted glass was broken Jan. 5 by a 24-year- old man who was on a one-day leave from the University of Utah Medical Center's psychiatric ward where he was returned after the incident. The same rock also damaged a statue of Christ in the visitor's center. Total damage was estimated at about $5,000. NEARLY 1,000 volumes of "The Osmonds, the official Story of the Osmond Family," were signed, from left, by Jimmy Osmond, Marie Osmond, Donny Osmond, Jay Osmond, Gcogc Osmond, his wife, and Paul Dunn, at a Saturday ufternoon autograph party held at Deseret Book in University Mall. Resort Concept Okayed Despite Experts 7 Fears By ROBERT MCDOUGALL and RON BARKER The decision to give conceptual approval to the Four Seasons ski resort project east of Provo last December was done despite written technical reports by some Forest Service experts who advised against it. According to Bruce Hronek, supervisor of the Uinta National Forest, the man who made the decision to grant conceptual approval, some of the reports were shown to be invalid or overly pessimistic shortly after an October meeting last year at which the resort concept was discussed. 'Problem Area" Two of the men who wrote reports on the project said Friday that they merely wanted to point out problem areas, and they said that some of their concerns could be overcome by adequate planning and careful construction. Mi*. Hronek instructed an inter-disciplinary team from the Forest Service to poinj out problem areas in the development proposal made by Wilderness Associates. The result was a number of small papers on hydrology, soils, geology, recreational potential of the resort and other facto/s. After questioning several of those who did reports which appeared to be against conceptual approval, Mr. Hronek decided to grant it anyway. Serious Questions "That doesn't mean that there aren't many serious problems that still have to be overcome. Many questions are as yet unanswered. Several points made in the studies written by the interdisciplinary team are perfectly valid and must. be considered,"he said. The main complaint of the specialists was that insufficient data had been collected on the project for a decision to be made. For that reason, Mr. Hronek said, a study trail was built this winter. Additional information is now being gathered, he said, and specialists will go into the area to conduct still more studies when the snow melts this spring and summer. That information will be included in the department's environmental impact statement due sometime this fall. Conceptual Okay Conceptual approval, which was granted in December, means that as far as the Forest Service is concerned, there may be a possibility of the resort being built. However, before any final approval can be given, detailed plans must be submitted for review and an environmental impact statement must be made by the government agency. The Forest Service must comply with all parts of the National Environmental Policy Act. One of the reports presented at the October meeting dealt with hydrology. Prepared by John Rector, it was mainly a criticism of the study done for developers by BYU. "It contained no figures of its own, but merely criticized the BYU study," said Mr. Hronek. It called for more data, some of which was already available on file in the Forest Service, he added, but additional information requested needed to be provided. Dismiss Report After dismissing the findings of the first hydrology report, additional study was conducted, including a computer simulation of runoff from snow melt and sudden downpours. ' Many of the interdisciplinary team's findings were refuted, Mr. Hronek said. The Forest Service also used consultants from outside Utah for purposes of studying the hydrological situation in the proposed project area. Paul Winklaar, one of the scientists who submitted a report recommending against conceptual approval until further data was submitted, commented last week, "I didn't know for sure what conceptual approval entailed. There are some very critical areas in the project." He added, however, that his main concern was with soils. He said data is needed to determine how fast certain phases of the ski resort can be opened up, and how much can be opened up. "I'm not saying that you couldn't build ski slopes there, only that there are concerns," he pointed out Friday. Mr. Hronek said he agreed with that assessment. Seismic Risk Earl Olson, a geologist, said that much of the area proposed for the resort is in a "seismic risk" area. Consequently, some concern should be directed at the type of architecture employed. Mr. Olson also asked questions about other features of the project, such as water ownership. It isn't impossible to build in an earthquake zone, he said. Much of Utah is in such a zone. But adequate building precautions should be taken to avoid potential problems in the event of a serious earthquake. Costly Project There are no tremendous problems in the resort from a geologic standpoint, but there TYPEWRITERS Rental IBM- ROYAL - ADLER LLOYD'S TYPEWRITER COMPANY are problems which will no doubt result in more cost to the developer, he said. Another report prepared by a winter recreation specialist raised a series of questions about access to the mountain, wind danger to aerial tramways and other facilities, and he also concluded that the conceptual approval should be withheld. One of the points made in that report, said Mr. Hronek, was that too much of the terrain was suited only for expert skiers. However, it was later found that an error was made, and that considerably more intermediate and beginner area was available. Good Potential The same specialist confirmed that there is the slope potential for a ski resort of national proportions in the hills east of Provo, and and he pointed out many of the potential problems for the Provo development have been faced and successfully solved elsewhere. The author of a report on the visual aspects of the resort gave an endorsement of the project. He based his recommendations in part on the experience of the developers of the Snowbird resort where runs are contoured to fit into natural terrain, and changes in the mountain geography are being made in stages. Israelis Plan Production Of Own Arms By United Press Interational Israeli Defense Minister Shimon Peres said Saturday said Israel is ready to produce as much as 50 per cent of its own arms if the United States decides to cut back military aid. "Should there be a drought in our purchasing relations, this would oblige us to step up production at home, to work harder, to save every piece of equipment in our possession and keep Israel's ammunition boxes filled" Peres said. Fans Flock To See Osmonds Thousands of Osmond fans jammed Deseret Book Store in University Mall on Saturday afternoon during an autograph party for "The Osmonds, the Official Story of the Osmond Family," authored by Paul Dunn and published by Bookcraft. On hand to sign the volume, in addition to Paul Dunn, were Jimmy, Marie, Donny, Jay, and Mr. and Mrs. Osmond. Protected by a glass wall on one side and a table in front, the Osmonds and the author signed several hundred copies during the hours at the store. H. George Bickerstaff, senior editor at Bookcraft, said the book is one of the hottest-selling volumes published by that company. He added that arrangements for national distribution have been made. It has been predicted that the book will become one of the top-selling books in the country within the next few weeks. Wilkinson Successor Selected SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) The Utah Republican Party Central Committee Saturday elected Salt Lake City realtor and developer Ellis R. Ivory as Utah GOP National Committeeman. The 34-year-old Ivory succeeds Dr. Ernest L. Wilkinson who resigned midway through his first four-year term. Ivory will serve as national committeeman through 1976. Ivory received 38 votes to 29 for former Utah House of Representative Speaker Howard C. Nielsen. Salt Lake City businessman Ivan Woodbury dropped out of the running at the opening of the two-hour meeting. Ivory said, "I plan to work primarily on the financial picture of the Utah State Republican Party. My program as national committeeman will develop in time." Babylift Flights Continue LOS ANGELES (UPI) - A World Airways 747 jet jammed with 329 Vietnamese and Cambodian war orphans, one dead and many ill, arrived at Los Angeles International Airport Saturday in the first of several weekend Operation Babylift flights. Thirty one of the orphans, suffering from illnesses including chicken pox, measles, pneumonia and dehydration, were rushed to eight local hospitals. Six of the more seriously ill youngsters, including three in critical condition, were flown by helicopter to County-USC Medical Center. Some of the children were transferred to another jet for a flight to Fort Benning, Ga., and another group of 22 awaited a flight to Norway as soon as medical authoritie gave them clearance. A 3rmonth-old boy died aboard the plane on its 12 M> hour flight from Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines. The orphan's death, attributed to shock, brought to three the number of Vietnamese children who have died since President Ford's Operation Babylift began. One child, an orphan airlifted from Saigon earlier this week, died at Clark Thursday afternoon, and another fatality was reported in San Francisco where a 2-rrymh-old baby known only as Dorothea D-18, died from an infection which spread from her ear throughout her body. Several Babylift flights had been schedued to arrive at Los Angeles International Airport during the weekend, but an airport spokesman said all others, mostly containing Vietnamese adult refugees, would land at Travis Air Force Base. Two Girls Die In Car Crash East of Nephi Two Nephi teenage girls were killed Saturday evening when the car in which they were riding careened off the road in Salt Creek Canyon near the Upper Power Plant. The names of the victims and four of five others injured in the wreck were being withheld at press time. Only the name of the driver of the car, Edison Robison, 146 N. 800 E., Nephi, was released. All five other occupants of the car were seriously injured, according to Deputy Sheriff Craig Newton. According to officers, the car was westbound in the canyon and failed to negotiate a turn. It left the road, hit an embankment and flew 30 feet through the air before landing in a deep drainage ditch. Four of the accident victims were transfered to Utah Valley Hospital in Provo for treatment following the crash. Their injuries were described as serious, mostly fractures, lacerations and shock, according to Deputy Newton. The two girls who died in the crash were reportedly between 14 and 16 years old. All of the occupants were young people. Color Picture Tubes REJUVINATED!! 324 West Center, Phone 374-0725 $350 YES ... it's true. Many picture tubes can be rejuvinated. Your's may be one of them.
