The latest disturbances came after the army seized an arms cache and a stone-and- bottle-throwing brawl erupted. .Streets were debris-littered and deserted in the riot-scarred Falls Road quarter a Roman Catholic en- clave as the army ordered a full emergency curfew and began house-to-house searches for the weapons used in the rioting Friday night and early Saturday. The night of fighting, with fire bombs, gre- nades and gunfire exploding in the streets, raised Northern Ireland's riot death toll to 12 in the past two weekends. Two of Friday night's victims were snipers killed by army sharp-shooters. Another was crushed by an armored car. At least 80 other persons were injured 19 of them soldiers and about 300 were arrested. To prevent further bloodshed, the govern- ment banned all processions throughout the province for three days, thus canceling Protes- tant Orange parades set for Sunday outside Belfast. Troops barricaded roads into the town of Armagh and searched cars for hidden arms. At the frontier with the Irish Republic between Londonderry and Donegal, all cars were searched for arms. In Londonderry, army en- gineers built sandbagged posts along the lines between Catholic and Protestant districts. One group of 11, including two women and five youths, was charged with having rounds of ammunition. In the Falls Road district troops ordered 1.500 residents out of their homes to nearby schools while the houses were searched. They turned up 45 pistols, 38 rifles, two submachine guns, 13 shotguns, rounds of ammuni- tion, 100 firebombs and 46 pounds of ex- plosives. From inside the sealed-off district, nation- alist Member of Parliament Paddy Devlin de- clared that the area's Catholics now wanted the troops to stay to protect them against Pro- testants, who would be "infuriated" at the dis- closure of arms caches. Devlin said the weap- ons had been brought into the district to pro- tect it from Protestant attacks. Friday night's fighting, he contended, be- gan because people were angry that the army used nausea gas to break up street crowds, which had gathered after an arms raid and a stone-and-bottle throwing brawl. Fireworks Used To Steal More KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Police said fireworks were used in the rob- bery Saturday of a stand where they were being sold. Mrs. Lou Wyrick, 33, reported two young men entered a fireworks stand she was operating and selected large armloads of her wares. Then each threw a lighted cherry bomb at her, causing injuries to her foot and ankle bo fore they escaped on foot.

It is part of an intricate web of life. And we can't think even of life as a thing in itself. It isn't. It is part of the intricate structure of a pianet bathed by energy from a sun. The earth in the nearly five billion years since it assumed approximately its present form, has undergone a vast evolution. When it first came into being, it very likely lacked what we would today call an ocean and an atmosphere. These were formed by the gradual outward movement of material as the solid interior settled together. Nor were ocean, atmosphere and solid crust independent of each other after formation. There is interaction always: evaporation, con- densation, solution, weathering. Far within the solid crust there are slow, continuing changes, too, of which hot springs, volcanoes and earth- quakes are the more noticeable manifestations here on the surface. Between two and three billion years ago, portions of the surface water, by the energetic radiation from the sun. developed complicated compounds in organization suf- ficiently versatile to qualify as what we call "life." Life forms have become more complex and more various ever since. But life forms are as much a part of thi structure of the earth as any inanimate portion is. It is all an inseparable part of a whole. If any animal is isolated totally from other forms of life. by starvation will surely follow. If isolated from water, death by dehy- dration will foilow even faster. If isolated from air, whether free or dissolved in water, death by asphyxiation will foilow still faster. If iso- lated from the sun, animals would survive for a time, but plants would die. and if all plants died, animals would starve. It works in reverse, too. for the inanimate portion of earth is shaped and nio'ided by life. The nature of the atmosphere has been changed by plant activity iwhich adds to the air the free oxygen it could not otherwise re- The soil is turned by earthworms, while enormous ocean reefs are formed by coral. The entire planet, plus solar energy, is one enormous intricately interrelated system. The entire planet is a life form made up of non- living portions and a large variety of living portions <as our own body is made up of non- living crystals in bones and non-living water in Wood, as well as of a large variety of living In fact, we can pursue the analogy.

President Nix- on and his new chief negotiator at the Paris talks on Vietnam, David K. E. Bruce, con- ferred here Saturday on their strategy for negotiating with the North Vietnamese delega- tion. _ At the same time, in Saigon, President Ngu- yen Van Thieu and Secretary of State William P. Rogers failed to reach any decision on a joint peace proposal to be put forth at the Paris talks. U.S. officials said. Nixon and Bruce offered newsmen a few brief remarks that added no new insights into the substance of the U.S. position. "I feel deeply honored at having been given this Bruce said. "'It is one which is foreign to my experience, but if I can make any contribution, no matter how slight, in bringing about a settlement of the difficulties in Southeast Asia, I will feel overjoyed." The 72-year-old ambassador said he would receive no further questions until after he as- sumed his new duties in Paris in August. Shortly before, Nixon disclosed that Bruce would meet with Rogers in London next Satur- day and then return in mid-month for a Nation- al Security Council meeting at the White House. Ellsworth Bunker, 76, the U.S. am- bassador in Saigon, will also participate in the discussions. Nixon and Bruce were joined in Saturday's meeting by Dr. Henry A. Kissinger, the Presi- dent's national security adviser, Under- secretary of State U. Alexis Johnson and Phil- ip Habib, who has been serving as interim chief of the American delegation in Paris. The President said Habib will return to Paris to assist Bruce through a transitional period and then will be given an important new diplomatic assignment which he did not identi- fy. Nixon praised Bruce's ''great wealth of ex- perience" and described him as "unique per- haps in the diplomatic service of this country." Bruce has served as ambassador to Britain. France and Germany, in addition to other as- signments. U.S. officials in Saigon said Rogers and Thieu had agreed to stay in close touch on other possible initiatives, but they made no io meet again on the subject during the American secretary's three-day stay here. Rogers said on his arrival in Saigon that ''It is time for negotiations real negotiations to end this war and bring to the people of South Vietnam a fair and lasting The South Vietnamese government has been cool to a suggestion by President Nixon thai "a fair political solution should reflect the existing relationship of political forces within South Vietnam.'' Rogers said last Monday that the Commu- nist side might find it to their advantage ;o negotiate an agreement based on representa- tion proportional to population. He estimated the Communist side could muster 20 per cent of the representation and the government would take at least SO per cent. The Saigon government became alarmed over Rogers' suggestion, viewing it as a U.S. effort to set up a coalition government. Rogers met for an hour with Thieu and then toasted him at a U.S. Embassy reception marking the Fourth of July, Foreign ministers from Thailand, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand who will attend a meeting here today of troop contributors to South Vietnam conferred informally with Rogers at the recep- tion. North Vietnamese Foreign Minister Nguyen Duy Trinh, meanwhile, has belittled Nixon'j appointment of Bruce. In a statement in Hanoi yesterday, received here Saturday over Hanoi radio, Trinh said that progress at Paris depended on U.S. will- ingness to negotiate a settlement of the Viet- nam war on "the correct basis of the 10-point overall solution" that has been put forward by the South Vietnam Liberation Front and provi-. sional -.pvernment. The 10 points include a military withdrawal of all U.S. troops from South Vietnam and the formation of a coalition government of Com- munist and non-Communist elements. Trinh said that the absence of progress at the Paris talks had been due to "the U.S. pur- suance of a policy of aggression and its obdu- rate stand." He implied that a new U.S. chief negotiator could make no difference, only a change of U.S. policy. The foreign minister said that in naming Bruce, the U.S. had corrected "an arrogant indicating Hanoi's reaction to the de- parture from the Paris talks of the previous U.S. delegation chief, Henry Cabot Lodge, who resigned last December, but said the U.S. intends to make use of this to cover its obdu- rate stand, surely nobody will fall dupe to it." Asked when Hanoi's chief delegate at the Paris talks, Minister Xuan Thuy, will return to the talks from North Vietnam, Trinh said, "As usual, Minister Xuan Thuy has come back to Hanoi to report to the government on the work at the Paris conference." Trinh characterized Nixon's July 1 state- ment as indicating no change in "the Nixon administration's policy of aggression against Vietnam" and said "only when the U.S. gives up its aggressive design against Vietnam will the Paris conference be able to make head- wav." 2 Children Die Two young children were killed yesterday afternoon in an auto accident on Interstate 10, eight miles east of Willcox, the Highway Pa- trol said last nigin. Three others were injured. Patrolmen said a rear tire on the west- bound car apparently went flat, causing the car to careen off the highway and turn over four or five times. All but one of the car's five occupants were thrown from the vehicle, ac- cording to accident investigators. Ricardo Redel, 4, and Seabron Johnson, 2, were killed in the crash. Mary Edna Johnson, 6, was in critical con- dition at Willcox Hospital with a skuli frac- ture. Mrs. Concepcion Gomez Johnson, 30, was listed in serious condition with a crushed pelvis at Tucson Medical Center and Mrs. Concepcion Lopez Redel, 30, was reported in serious condi- tion at T.MC with multiple injuries. Patrol- men said the two families were from Safford but were moving to Nogales when the accident occurred. The national toll of lives lost over the Fourth of July weekend had risen to 32S, in- cluding fi from Arizona.
