Al tlie same lime Jess Unruh claimed the Democratic nomina- tion and will run against Gov. Ronald Reagan in California. Wallace pulled from behind lo defeat Gov. Albert Brewer in Tuesday's runoff primary. Virtually complete returns gave the former governor and 10C8 presidential candidate votes, or 51.51 per cent, Brewer or 48.49 per cent. The nomination is tantamount lo election since the Republi- cans are unlikely to run a candi- date in November. Brewer said lie knew all along lie couldn't win if "race and a hale campaign" became the major it did be- come the main issue." He called it "the dirtiest campaign I've ever seen in Alabama." Wallace had blamed wlial lie called a Negro "Woe vole'1 for his failure to win the nomination in the first primary May 5 and had predicted unified black sup- port for Brewer in the vmiofl.

CRAFT Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) A ma- jor hubbub has developed over a presidential panel's nol-so-se- cvel ideas on where to toss the nation's 200tli birthday parly. Some of the plan leaked out despite the American Revolu- tion Bicentennial Commission's hopes oE keeping it secret foe President Nixon to announce next July 41h. The fracas began after the commission reportedly dropped a draft proposal to concentrate (he 197C celebration in four cit- ies, with the Continental Con- gress city of Philadelphia hold- ing an international exposition. The oilier cities were Boston, Washington and Miami, Fla. Pennsylvania's senators, He- publicans Hugh Scott and Rich- ard S. Schwciker, said Tuesday Dial plan had been scrapped "for reasons not clear lo us." They said the commission had decided lo hold informal cele- brations throughout the nalion LIMA, Pem (AP) Bad weather and blocked roads con- tinued to hamper efforts today to get rescue workers into lire earthquake-shattered Huaylas Canyon high in the Peruvian Andes. The (owns of Yungay, Caraz South Viets Airlift Aid !o Mountain SAIGON (AP) Five hun- dred South Vietnamese troops made a helicopter assault today lo link up with the weary de- fenders of a mountain ridge ar- tillery base battered by two days of attacks in the northwest corner of South Vietnam. Following up an early morn- ing hammering by U.S. bombers, American and South Vietnamese fighter-bombers dropped antipersonnel cluster bombs on lower ridgelines with- in half a mile of. beleaguered Firebase Tun Tavern, while I he relief force flew into a landing zone about tlie same distance from Hie base on the opposite side. Field reports said there was no resistance as the reinforce- ments and their U.S. advisers joined the remnants of Tim Tav- ern's defenders lo begin a Sweep around the base. At noon, North Vietnamese mortar crews were still hurling shells into the helicoplsr pad of the kidney-shaped outpost four miles east of the Laolian border as American medical helicop- ters wheeled in to lake out the dead and wounded. One helicopter was hit and de- stroyed this morning. _______ Market Mixed NEW VORK (AP) Slocks opened mixed in moderately ac- tive trading today.

Government officials feared as many as people were killed, but broken communica- tions still prevented anything like an accurate talty of casual- lies. In Yungay, about 240 miles north of Lima, only resi- dents reportedly survived out of Hie population of a high government official said. Information Director Auguslo Zimmerman said many people who ran into Ihc narrow streets of tlie Andean villages and towns were killed by falling rocks and debris from the can- yon walls. A surging tide of wa- ter from Lake Llanganuco add- ed lo the destruction. The air force managed lo drop a squad of 34 rescue work- ers Tuesday al Huaraz, at Ihc south entrance of the gorge. It followed up with several more supply drops deeper in the can- yon and made a few helicopter evacuations before the weather closed in. v.'Hh no dominant centers and only limited international parti- cipation. Scolt and Schwciker fired off a letter to commission Chairman J. K. Wallace Sterling asking for an urgent meeting of ttie pi.nel lo reconsider They said Ihc four-city plan had been drawn up by the com- mission's executive committee but somehow never presented to Ihe full commission. Tlie plan eventually adopted, they said, was one "conceived by slaff and considered in an in- foniial discussion between some members of the slaff and a few commission members the prior evening." They did not say exaclly when the commission had aclcd. The spjialors want lo keep alive Philadelphia's hopes for landing ?.n international exposi- tion. They said il is "mil clear whether the programming ener- gy and financial resources lo promote the commission's con- cept of national activilics could be found wilhout some focal puinl to encourage both Ihe nec- essary congressional appropria- tions and the mutual coopera- 'tion of leadership which will be needed lo make any bicenten- nial observance successful." A source close to the commis- sion said Ihc substitute plan ac- ceplcd by the panel is, in effect, "a big birthday parly lied lo lil- lle extends the parly ralher than restricting it."

CBS Believes Body Newsman's NEW YORK (AP) The Columbia Broadcasting System reported today (hat a body found in a freshly dug grave in Cambodia is believed lo be that of missing CBS newsman (leorge Syvcrlsen. CliS quoted a cable from Saigon Bureau manager David Miller and colleagues that Ihey "believe I hoy found Ihc body" of Syvertscn in a grave about SO yards from Cambodia Route 3. The clothing on Ihe body, Jlillcr said, led lo the belief it was Syvcrlsen. Still missing, along wilh a team of three National Broadcasting Co. men, is producer-newsman Gerald Miller. The jeep that Syvertsen and Gerald Miller had bfien using, CHS said, was found 'burn- ed out" not far from where the hotly was discovered.

Some scientists have said in ll.e past that it might be 25 lo 100 years before Ihis now knowl- edge of genetics can be put lo work in man. The first likely application would be in genetic engineering infecting humans with viruses lhat carry new genes, genes Ihal would cure he- reditary diseases such as hemo- philia.

A first simple life form that Why Were Trash Containers Moved? Bv BLUE IHJCKliR and BKTTy GRISSOM Q. Why have the (rash containers removed frnin the Iticliland and No. Mill location? We in (lie neighborhood need these containers tor grass clippings and other throw-away IIKer, other than garbage. I nnllcrd a short lime ago a picture in the newspaper showing liller around the containers. The clly remedies Ihis silualion removing the hin containers we had. Why didn't (he clly just add one or two more containers? Surely, (liny could see Ihe problem. Is liny we taxpayers mild get sufficient containers at or near this location? A. The two containers were moved clown the slrcct two blocks, (the IfiOO block ot nichland) lo a more suitable localion, Charles iS'olcn of Ihe City Refuse Depart- ment says. The city has 41 public service containers in 30 different locations al Ihc present and is financially unable lo furnish any more, Nolcn says. 'i II costs the cily about a year lo collect from the ones now being used and il receives no revenue (or them, he says. Q. I know of at least two letters (hat have been mailed (o me lhat I did not get and one (hat I mailed (hat did not arrive. They all had the correct poslage and address including the I thought .vein could rtcpend on the mail service. Makes me wonder how many more I haven't received. However, I haven't missed gelling any bills. A. When it's realized a letter has been lost in Ihe mail Ihe post office should be notified at once and usually il shows up if il had the correct address, poslage, a n d a return address, says Mel Laync, customer relations representative of the Abilene Post Office. If there's no poslage on (he Idler Ihe receiver is charged upon delivery or a nntics is left in the box indicating an attempt, lo deliver had been made. When the address is incorrect it's sent back to the return address if there's one on the envelope. If not, it's scnl to the dead loiter branch in Dallas. There it's opened by an official and a wilness lo determine the identificalion of Ihe sender or inlcnded receiver. H a name or address ol either is found in Ihe letlcr it is then re-enveloped and forwarded wilh a ten ccnl charge. Q. I have always been of the opinion that when driving a car around a corner, our is supposed In slay In (he lane into which he is turning until the traffic warrants his changing lanes. Twice each day I almost gel run over al the corner of Hickory and No. 2nd. I am turning [eft off Hickory N. 2nd. anil persons turning right off Hickory onlo N. 2nd almost run me Inlo (lie curb as they turn the comer and come all the way over inlo the south lane on N. 2nrt. Am I right or wrong, do 1 have the right ol way In lell lane, or do the persons turning right have Ihe rlghl ot way In Ihe left lane? I think a patrolman should be station- ed at Ihis Intersection. A. Patrolman Noel Johnston, of Ihe Abilene Police Dopt., says you have the right-of-way. When making a right lurn you should stay in the right lane; when making a left lurn the car should stay as far as possible in the left lane in a one way street and lo Ihc center in a two-way street. it would be impossible lo put a patrolman at every Irouble corner in Ihe cily, he says, bul this one will be checked. Q. Do you know of anyone tn Abilene who could restore a player piano? How much would it cost? Also, would anyone Jiavc parts lo do II yourself? A. There is only one person in Abilene lhat we were able lo locate, Ihal is still in the business. Charles Tidwell may be reached by calling 673-4VC1 but you will have to put your name on a waiting list and then it may be six months before he can get to it. Tiriwell said il takes several weeks lo rebuild a player and it will cost you about This includes refinishing the cabinet, repairing the piano action or new parts, installing an electric pump, etc., lie says, and the charge could be cut down. It would be almost impossible to rebuild it yourself, he says, but it has been done. There is a woman here in Abilene who repaired player pianos al one time but because of poor health she retired.
