The National Academy of Sciences, after apprisal of 85 proposed sites, recommended further study of sites at: Ann Arbor, Mich.; Brookhaven National Laboratory, N.Y.; Madison, Wis.; the Sierra foothills near Sacramento, Calif.; South Barrington or Weston, near Chicago, and Denver, Colo. As to the first five sites, the selection committee said they all have "either the nucleus of a strong accelerator design group or one of the nation's outstanding universities nearby." neither the university strength nearby nor the existing design group that is considered desirable."

The proposed $375-million machine would be a 200-billion-clec-tron-volt - BEV - accelerator - the world's most power fill device in the atom-smasher field and the costliest single sci entific installation ever built. Its construction, however, has yet to be approved by Congress. * * * The machine would be de signed to explore the fundamental secrets of matter for peaceful uses. It would be shaped like a giant merry-go- round or race track nearly a mile in diameter. Scientists contend it might eventually yield a rich practical payoff in new knowledge - in a range from helping develop new sources of energy to making new advances in medicine and even weather control. It would take about eight years to build, cost about $60 million a year to run, and employ about 2,300 scientists and technicians. Another 1,000 scientists would be expected to visit it annually for research projects. The AEC has Indicated it may take several months more before selecting the final winner of what Gov. Roger D. Branigin of Indiana has termed the "scien tific prize of the century." Rep. Craig Hosmer, R-Calif. a member of the Joint Senate House Atomic Committee, and long critical of the AEC's site selection process for the atom-smasher, has referred to the race as "the 200 BEV bonanza - the government's biggest free offer to all comers since open ing the Cherokee Strip to the homesteaders in 1893." The 85 proposed sites turned over to the academy's site-se lection committee last Septem ber had been chosen from an original group of 126 proposals representing more than 200 site! in 45 states - all but Alaska, Hawaii, Delaware, Vermont and New Hampshire. New Hampshire, however, teamed with Maine in a joint proposal for locating the machine in Main* near the New Hampshire border. In various cities throughout the country, reception commit* tees turned out to greet inspec* tion teams from the AEC. In discussing each of the sitel recommended today, the acade� my's report made these points: Ann Arbor - A chief attrac* tion is its proximity to the University of Michigan, a major school with strength in the physical, engineering and mathematical sciences. The Detroit Metropolitan Airport, about 35 minutes driving time away, hat frequent direct flights to other major metropolitan centers., Large lakes in the vicinity mod* erate the climate. ROME (AP) - The Anglican a city councilman from Belfast Archbishop of Canterbury arrived to a cheering welcome today for historic Christian unity talks with Pope Paul VI. But two Protestant clergymen who called him "traitor" and came along on the same plane from London were refused entry to Italy. Dissension over the visit of Dr. Michael Ramsey marked the departure from London. The two clergymen, two other militant anti-Catholic ministers and Company Land In The Saco Industrial Corporation has signed an option for the sale of approximately 6V2 acres of land in the Industrial Park in the area of the sewage treatment pla^nt to a firm which; for the present will remain unnamed, at its request, it was announced today. This firm has plans for the immediate construction of one general purpose building of approximately 1(T,000 square feet Signs Option For Industrial Park with employment of 25 to 35 persons, mostly male. Future plans call for another special type building within three to five years. At the present time, two other industries are located in the Park; Northeast Gases, in a 7,200 square foot building, manufactures industrial arid medical gases, and Lyn - Flex Industries, in a 98,000 square foot modern plant, manufactures in nersoles for the shoe industry Since the land was purchased in 1957, paved roads, water lines, sewer lines, a sewage treatment plant and a railroad spur have been installed. Including the two industrial buildings located here, over $1,000,-000 has been invested to date with very definite plans for additional facilities to be added to attract more industries to the Saco area. had flung the word at the archbishop as they boarded his plane. At the' Rome airport police stopped the Rev. John Wylie, a Free Presbyterian minister from Northern Ireland, and the Rev. Ian Paisley, moderator of the Free Presbyterian Church of Northern Ireland. Frontier police said there were written instructions from the Italian interior minister to keep them out of the country, and that they would have to go back. On the first official visit of a head of the Anglican Church to the Vatican since the schism of 1534, Dr. Ramsey and the Pope will discuss Christian unity in a meeting Wednesday at the Vatican. The next day they will pray together and exchange an embrace of peace. Five militant anti-Catholics shouted "you traitor" as the archbishop prepared to leave for Rome from the London airport.

Grissom, almost drowned in 1961 when his Mercury capsule sank after he became the second American to rocket into space. About four years later, he took his second space ride - the first man to do so - as command pilot on the maiden mission of the two-man Gemini program. Now, he is back again, to launch another project. The short, crewcut Air Force lieutenant colonel will be command three-man spaceship, an Apollo craft like one designed to carry men to the moon. Grissom, Air Force Lt. Col. Edward H. White II and Navy Lt. Roger B. Chaffee were named Monday to take an Apollo spacecraft on a shakedown cruise of up to 14 days in earth orbit. The flight will be the first of at least four manned Apollo flights planned before the United States attempts to shoot three men to the moon before 1970, perhaps by late 1968. The space triplets are official- ly slated to take the first flight in early 1967, but if all goes well in training and spacecraft preparation for the mission, it could be launched as early as November. Their mission might be sort of a ringing out the old, and ring ing in the new in the staging a space rendezvous between the Apollo ship and the last two man Gemini spacecraft, cur rently Gemini 12. * * * Such a rendezvous, Dr. Robert Gilruth, director of the Manned Spacecraft Center, said (Continued on Page Two) a demonstration against the vis it outside the archbishop's Lambeth Palace last Friday. The five demonstrators began shouting as the archbishop stood on the front steps to the plane waving to a group of newsmen Police escorted them quickly to the back steps of the plane and after questioning them for awhile allowed them to board it They kept shouting. Four were ministers representing the British Council of the International Council of Christian Churches, a mainly fundamentalist body with headquarters in Evanston, 111. The five were the Rev. Ian Paisley, moderator of the Free Presbyterian Church of Northern Ireland, who picketed the Vatican at the opening of the Ecumenical Council; the Rev. John Wylie, another Free Presbyterian minister; the Rev. Jack Glass, a Baptist from Glasgow, the Rev. Robert Hood, an Anglican vicar in North Lon don, and James McCarroll of the Belfast City Council. Dr. Ramsey has said he does not expect Christian unity in his lifetime. Catholic leaders have said much the same. Poverty Symposium Set At St. Francis College Trucking, Shipping Ripped By U. S.

The bill was scheduled for a showdown last week but its backers postponed the test until today in hopes of building up sufficient strength to win. The bill would authorize the expenditure of $750,000 to build an official residence for the vice president on 10 acres of land now owned by the government at the site of the U.S. Naval Ob servatory next door to the British Embassy. Additional money would be provided annually for maintenance and operation. Leading the fight against the bill are House Republican Leader Gerald R. Ford and all 11 GOP members of the House Public Works Committee. Hi * * In a recent statement, Ford said the Republican opposition had no relation to the fact that Vice President Hubert H. Hum phrey is a Democrat. Today's Chuckle "I never worry. I've got enough money to last me for the rest of my life-unless I buy something." (T-M, WRR Gen. Fea. Corp.) But this is not the time, Ford said, to spend money on any nonwar project that could be delayed until the Viet Nam war's drain on the Treasury slows down. "This goes far beyond even 'butter' at a time when this na tion also has to provide 'guns',' the 11 Republican committee members said in a joint statement. They said there was no justification for spending the money when the administration has proposed cuts in the school milk program, military housing and educational programs. The Democratic majority on the Public Works Committee said construction of a residence for the vice president is "long overdue" because of "the accel erating burden upon the office of the vice president." Congress has been toying with the idea of a "little White House" for almost 50 years. In the past, several prominent cit izens have offered to donate mansions in Washington as an official residence for the vice president. The Senate last year passed a bill to set up a commission to study the whole subject. WANTED! MACHINISTS  TOP PAY  OVERTIME  PERMANENT EMPLOYMENT APPLY IN PERSON. OR Chhh .. . ATLANTIC PRECISION PRODUCTS Smith Street 283-3878 Blddeford SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) - U.S. jet pilots reported today they struck heavy blows at trucking and shipping in North Viet Nam, blasting more than half of a 50-vehicle convoy in a mountain pass and sinking or damaging five gunboats. Marine spokesmen reported that the Leathernecks killed at least 205 Communists in expanding ground operations in South Viet Nam's northern provinces. But 10 Leathernecks were killed in the crash of a Marine helicopter, and an A4 Skyhawk crashed on a bombing run in support of the Marines. The pilot was rescued. As the weather cleared over North Viet Nam, U.S. spokesmen said they were highly pleased with the results of Monday's raids by Air Force and Navy fighter-bombers. However, the successes cost the Air Force a needle-nosed RF101 Voodoo reconnaissance jet which was shot down northeast of Vinh. The pilot was listed as missing. The Viet Cong gave another demonstration of their guerrilla tactics, hitting the airport at Dalat before dawn and damaging a number of planes. Two platoons of about 50 Reds penetrated the airport grounds after a mortar barrage.    On the political front, Buddhist students in Da Nang and Hue demonstrated peacefully against the government of Premier Nguyen Cao Ky. In Saigon, Thich Tarn Chau, a leader of the Buddhist political movement, personally halted a student demonstration although the Na tional Buddhist Institute he heads issued a communique making clear it is unhappy with Ky. A flight ol Air Force F105 Thunderchiefs spotted the truck convoy parked near the Mugia Pass 60 miles south of Vinh in the North Vietnamese panhan die.

Indonesia May Ease Off On War WORKS LIKE MAGIC VDHIVE.THHU CAR WASH Drive A Clean Car Needed 1 Minute And 75e 100 Free Gold Bond Stamps With Each Wash BRIGGS Coin Operated Car Wash Heath Street Old Orchard Beach, Maine SINGAPORE (AP) - Diplomats in Singapore predicted today that Indonesia's new military regime will gradually call off President Sukarno's three-year-old undeclared war against Malaysia. Diplomatic sources said they expect Indonesian armed raids against Malaysia will end but the propaganda campaign against the federation of former British territories probably will continue for some time. Lt. Gen. Suharto's new re gime realizes it must improve Indonesia's economy if it is to avoid widespread opposition from the people, one diplomat said, and one of the quickest ways of doing this would be to reopen trade with Singapore and Malaysia. President Sukarno's "confron tation" with Malaysia disrupted his country's shipment of tin and rubber through Singapore and Malaysia, the main source of Indonesian foreign exchange The tin mines and rubber plan tations in Indonesia have been allowed to run down during the past two years, the sources said, but Radio Jakarta said today rubber plantation workers have been ordered to step up their output. "The people of Indonesia are tired of going hungry," one diplomat commented. * * * "One of the main reasons for the student demonstrations that led to the downfall of Sukarno and his aides, Subandrio and Salch, was the economic chaos in the country." Until they were fired by the army last week, Subandrio was first deputy premier and foreign minister and Chaerul Saleh was third deputy premier. Both were regarded as pro-Peking. The diplomats' predictions of a softer line against Malaysia were also based on a statement by the new foreign minister, Adam Malik, Monday that Indonesia's foreign policy under the previous government was undignified. The new regime's task "is heavy because we must bring back the nation's prestige in the eyes of the people and the out< side world," Malik declared. The diplomats said peace feet ers were sent to (Malaysia early this year when anti-Communist armed forces led by Gen. Abdul Haris Nasution were in charge of the country. Nasution dropped from public view after Sukarno fired him as defense minister in February but Suharto's regime is expected to give him a prominent post in the new government. The diplomats also said there is a strong possibility that a meeting can be arranged between Indonesia's new military rulers and the leaders of Ma� laysia. President Ferdinand E. Marcos of the Philippines tried to interest Sukarno in such a meeting before the army take, over on March 11, but Sukarno rejected it. Radio Jakarta said merchant* in Indonesia were complying with Suharto's order to lower prices on some goods. The broadcast reported a drop of 10 per cent in the price of soma commodities.
