On Artifacts WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Ninon is expected to sign today a bill that could delay any federal construction project until artifacts on the site are recovered. The new law puts Ihe power of the federal government behind efforts to salvage arch- ·ological, historical or scientific ·rtifacts that could be lost forever because of earth-moving projecls. The legislation allows a federal agency involved in a con- itruclion project to use up to one per cent of the money appropriated for the project to salvage any such data. In addition, Congress authoi ized an appropriation of $6 million over live years to salvage artifacts on property owned by private organizations or private citizens. Another $13 million was aulhorized to finance recovery of artifacts from any building project paid for in whole or part by the federal government. The secretary of Ihe interior is empowered by the new law to coordinate the survey-and- ·alyage notified facts might exist in a construction-project corridor, he would have 60 days--or whatever time he and the federal agency involved might agree on--to begin Ihe recovery work.

Prohibition Of Guns To All But Police Proposed BOSTON (AP) -- Boston Police Commissioner Robert diGr- azia has proposed a nationwide prohibition on handguns for everyone except police officers. "The handgun is the tool of the violent criminal. It is made lo kill. It has no constructive purpose," riiGrazia told a civic club meeting Thursday night. His proposal, which he said was supported by eight of the 32 big city police chiefs who met in San Francisco last week, would ban the m a n u f a c - ture, distribution, sale, ownership and possession of hand guns for everyone except po- Ice--including the military, "I am not so presumptuous as lo believe that my voice will make a difference." the commissioner said. "But I will not stand silent when, since 1962, of the 10 Boston- police offi- :ers who have been killed have seen murdered with handguns, and 16 of the 17 who have been wounded have been shot with handguns." DiClrazla said that 27 persons arc killed with h a n d g u n s each day In the United States. About 2.5 million handguns are sold in this country each year, 500,000 are stolen and 12,000 are lost, he said. NWARPC Clarifies Terminology In Thursday Night Meeting SPRINGDALE -- Because some confusion arose over the use of the word "public" in the Northwest Arkansas Regional Planning Commission's (N- WARPC) Land Resource Management Plan, the commission clarified the "open space" category in the plan at its regular meeting Thursday. NWARPC director. K e n Riley told the commission that many persons have contacted the agency about the map for the Land Resource Management Plan which referred to open space lands as public lands. On the map, some areas designated as open space are privately o w n e d , as in the Ozark National Forest.

Victor Solow was speaking of death. For 23 minutes after suffering a heart attack, Solow was dead. The 56-year-old producer of documentary films liked to boast that he had never been sick a day in his life. Then at 10:52 a.m. on Saturday, March 23, he collapsed of a heart attack while driving his car. For a.m. when his body was jolted the next 23 minutes, until 11:15 by electric shocks at U n i t e d Hospital, Solow had no measurable pulse, no heart activity, and no vital signs. In a tape-recorded story he calls his "Death and Resurrection," Solow has related in his words his strange ex- ice.

(AP) -- The Hope Star has endorsed Lt. Gov, Bob Riley for the Democratic gubernatorial nomination in Tuesday's primary. Riley is opposed by David Pryor and former Gov. Orval E. Faubus. The Star said in an editorial Thursday lhal Pryor "shoulders a heavy liability because of his endorsement and financial support by organized labor." "The alternative -- Orval Faubus -- is an even worse prospect." Ihe editorial said. The editorial said the real danger in labor's endorsement of Pryor is that Arkansas "tra dilionally reacts against Big la bor in slale politics, and if Ihe endorsement boomerangs...this agricultual state might well bring down on its collective beads the ultimate disaster -returning Orval Faubus to the executive mansion." the Greek officers hoped these warnings will impel the United States to intervene diplomatically and dissuade the Turks from exploring for oil in the Aegean. If an armed clash should develop, the sources said, the Greeks indicated they are counting on the United States to prevent it from ballooning into a major war. There have been a number of reporls of Greek mililary actions, but U.S. officials are uncertain whether these were serious preparations or demonstrations. TWICF, BEFORE Twice before, in the 1960s, the United Stales came close to direct involvement in Greek- Turkish feuding over Cyprus. But on both occasions the crises eased. Since then, the Uniled Slales has been lalking up the importance of the Turkish and Greek navies working together in helping shield NATO's southern periem lished the Rockland Newspapers group. "I was driving and had just stopped for a red light," he recalls. "Then calmly but with great surprise," picks up his wife. Lucky, "he turned to me and said, Oh, Lucky, I..' As swiftly as Ihe expiration of a breath, he seemed to settle down in his seat with all his weight." she said. "Even his head remained almost erect but his eyes opened wide like one utterly astonished aboul an unexpected, strange transcendence. But I knew instantly he could neither hear nor see me. '· "I pulled on the emergency brake and turned off the ignition, incoherently talking and pleading with him to hang on. that he was going to be fine. He uttered not a sound." Mrs. Solow sought help and Frank Colangelo telephoned police from a nearby gasoline station. An officer arrived quickly _nd began massaging Solow's heart, and this was continued after the arrival of an ambu' lance manned by five trained volunteers. 11 look Solow to Uniled, where the staff had been alerted by radio to the emergency. "The patient w a s dead by available standards," Dr. Harold Roth recounted. "In other words, there was no measurable pulse, no heart activity, he was not breathing and he appeared to bave no vital signs whatever." A cardiac monitor was put into action.

Endorsed Mailing Of Article PINE BLUFF, Ark. AP) -.en. J. W. Fulbright endorsed ho mailing by stale Rep. ·'rank Henslec of 50,000 copies if an article alleging that Gov. Dale Bumpers signed a proclamation against hunting, t h e inn Bluff Commercial has reported. Henslce had refused earlier .0 confirm or deny that he was mailing copies of an article in the May issue of the Arkansas Sportsman, a monthly news, paper published at Little Rock. Fulbright did not know in advance that Henslec would mail copies of the article in the Arkansas Sportsman, the Com- mcrical reported Tuesday. The senator also said he did not personally oversee the reimbursement of Henslee for the mailing. However he said t h a t he endorsed the action. Tile lead article in that edition of the Arkansas Sportsman concerned a resolution signed by Bumpers w li i c h declared Oct. !3, 1973 as "Animal Liberation Day" and opposed cruelty lo animals. The article construed the resolution as being against hunting. Bumpers, himself a hunter, denied lhat he had any anli- hunting sentiment when he signed the proclamalion, which was requested hy Ihe Friends of Animals, Inc., of New York. plan adopted last July was to show the category of land use and not the tvpe ownership, the commission decided to slightly rephrase the map's legend. A sticker will be fixed to Ihe map legend beside the symbol for open space. The modified map will then read "open space (including private and public lands)." While this modification does not constitute an amendment to the plan, it does recognize that all lands designated on the map as open space are not necessarily publicly- owned. In a further explanalion of why Ihe Ozark National Forest is all designated as open space Jand when some of the holdings inside it are private. Riley said t h a t the Forest Service officials are considering the now-private holdings in the Forest for po- lential public acquisilion by the federal government. Al Thursday's meeting, the commission adopted a resolution adding the cities of Benton- vitle. Elkins ant! Rogers lo Ihe conslruclion grant projecl lisl of Ihe Arkansas Departmenl of Pollution Control and Ecology. Willi its water qualily man agement plan for this region adopted, the NWARPC requested that these three cities be put on the state department's priority project list in order to receive funds related to construction of waslewater treat- menl facililies. The commission approved a contract to hire Dr. Dee T. Mitchell, civil engineer at the University of Arkansas, to provide professional and technical services for the NWARPC. The contract which covers the period from March 1. 1974 until June 30. 1974, conforms with federal guidelines for such professional assistance. In olher business, the commission approved an affirmative action plan outlining the policy by which it assures that e m p l o y m e n t within t h e NWARPC is not discriminalory on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion or sex. The commission approved the resignation of NWARPC member Railey Steele, former mayor of Gentry. Steele resigned after moving outside Gentry city limits, In personnel matters, increased wages were approved for three employes, Riley told the commission the raises wera in keeping with the staff personnel rules and regulations and were included in the 1974 budget. mniiiiiniiNiiiiniiiiininnnnniNnnniinniiiiiiiiinnfljiiinnn Obituary f f a n k fleet against a strong Soviet the eastern Mediterranean.

After the second shock, we began to get evidence of a rhythm on the cardiac monitor. "The patient was alive and we rapidly began to get increasing movement. He was able to breathe, and we put him under nasal oxygen. From that point, we tended to stabilize him, giving him whatever drugs were required, and monitoring the cardiogram, to make sure the heart wouldn't stop again." "The crisis was over." Solow wrote.
