(AP) A team of scientists from the Uni- versity of Connecticut reported Thursday the discovery of the remains of 13 Russian Cossacks massacred more lhan two cen- turies ago during an Aleut up- rising in the Bering Sea island chain. Dr. William S. Laughlin, a physical anthropologist and au- thor of the report, said the buri- al pit containing the skeletons of 13 Cossacks and an Aleut was located In Chaluka. There were thought to be 49 Russians in the original party, Laughlin said, adding that the massacre oc- curred in 1763 or 17M. "They were all adult males between 22 and 50 years of age, unusually robust, with exccp- tionally large noses, good teeth, an absence of arthritis and there was one case of Laughlin added. Laughlin said the Russians provide an insight into the ac- tual appearance of the "first hy- bridizing population1' and their early social relations with the natives. Among Ihe signs of Inter- breeding, he said, were Russian physical traits w-hich are now- found in the Eskimo, such as baldness, long noses and physi- cal stature. Laughlin said the Cossack party was last heard from Dec. 8, 1763, when letters were sent from the Aleutians by way of a Russian ship. On July 5, 1764, a Russian named Glottof found the bodies, which were buried about two weeks later by anoth- er Russian named Knrovin. Both men later relumed to Rus- sia and described Uie massacre. Laughlin said Glottof reported that he had recognized among the bodies the commander of the Cossack detachment, a man Modvedeff.

The two chiefs of state shook hands warmly. Franco's wife. Dona Carmen Polo, gave Nit- on's wife, Pat, a bouquet cf flowers decorated with the Spanish flag. It was the time Nixon and Franco had met. They first met in Barcelona in 1963 when Ihe U.S. executive visited Spain as a private citizen. In Belgrade three hours ear- lier, President Tito, Mrs. Tito and top Yugoslavian officials had accompanied the Nixons and their party to the airport and had waved goodbye as the presidential jet, Air Force One, look off into an overcast sky. The P r e s i d c n t 's airliner touched down in Madrid shortly after noon. Nixon lold Franco he was "greatly honored to be the first President lo visit Spain" since President Dwight D. Eisenhow- er's stop here in 1959. Aflcr the ceremonies at the airport, which were colorful and warm, the two chiefs of stale drove off to Madrid in a closed limousine flanked by motorcy- cle outriders. Nixon's route took him past the Plaza of Eisenhower named after the Inlp President's visit. Nixon's six-minute speech laid emphasis on military coopera- tion between the two countries but also stressed social and eco- nomic relations. More than policemen in uniform and in plain clothes lined the streets and the roots along the route ol the 13-mile motorcade. Infantry troops also guarded Ihe route. His and Franco's remarks on the new agreement on U.S. bases In Spain underlined the determination of both govern- ments to carry them out by ex- ecutive agreement despite U.S. Senate oppostion and mild criti- cism of lha pacts In Spain. Before Ihe President's visit. Communist leaflets called for dcmnnstralions against Nixon. Nixon entered Madrid the liphlest security in the city's history. The famous three-cornered hats of Ihe Civil Guard mingled with more than Spanish and U.S. flags and banners as the Nixnns reached the heart of Madrid. The Spanish flags have been flying for days but the U.S. flags went up a few hours ahead of N'ixon's arrival, apparently to avoid any chance of incident. Police were busy 24 hours be- fore Nixon's arrival covering up slogans denouncing the Presi- dent, the United States and the bases agreement that popped in the capital's suburbs. WEATHER U.

No FDA Ruling on Bare Feet in Cafes No Evidence of Soviet Sub Base, Church Claims WASHINGTON (AP) There Is no conclusive evidence at this time that a Soviet submarine support base is under construc- tion In Cuba, according to Sen. Frank Church. The Idaho Democrat came out of t meeting with Defense Intel- ligence Agency officials Thurs- day lo say that "present evi- dence would not sustain a con- elusion one way or the other" about the reported flussian fa- cility. "There Is construction activi- ty going the senator said, It would be highly conjec- tural to conclude" the work is on a sub base. "Facts arc much loo skimpy to draw conclusions now." But, Church added, the Penta- gon is keeping an eye on work. "In light of what happened In Ihe 1962 Cuban missile crisis, we can't disregard" any Soviet construction on the Island 90 miles from U.S. shores, he said. The Pentagon said last week there were solid Indications con- struction was under way on a Soviet base on Cuba's south shore, at Clcnfuepos. By ELLIE RUCKER q. Last year I sprained my ankle which made wearing shoes Impossible. A local restaurant refused me service by stating that Food and Drug Adminis- tration wouldn't allow shoeless patrons In an establishment where food Is served. Two nights ago a ruoplt, also bare- footed, was turned away by the same restaurant for Ihe same reason. My question Is why aie bare feet on an otherwise dirty floor considered unhygienic when Illrrally hundred! of wads of rhculng gum adorn the nndrr- sides of Ihe tables patrons art served nn? A. The restaurant owner was either trying to be tactful or just passing the buck, be- cause Ihe FDA has no such ruling. Many restaurants have their own house nil! against bare feel because they ftcl It may be offensive to other patrons and to prevent a lawsu't in case a barefooted customer should step on a toothpick or piece of broken china, etc. The restaurant owners agree that chewing gum under the tables Is and wi'h there was a way to prevent It, but so far haven't come up with one. Q. Is there any certain time I should mall a leltrr In order to be sure It will reach Dallas Ihe next morning alter mailing? What about parcels? A. If you'll have the letter at Ihe Main Posloffice (Ihe hoi in the lobby) by p.m., it will be delivered in Dallas the next day. If you miss that deadline, you can send an air mail letter as laic as p.m. and it will be delivered the next day. A special delivery letter can be mailed as late as p.m. For parcels, It takes a minimum of two diys from the time you mall It until it's delivered. Q. I'd like to know where I ronld nh- tain I city map of Ablltne ilnrc I'll be going to school (here toon. Could jou tell me where I could order one so It can be sent through the mall? A. Glad you're to Abilene; so is the Chamber of Commerce and they've already sent you a map. If anyone else has an urge for a city map, drop by the C of C, they'll gladly provide one. Or both downtown newstands sell city maps fnr 75 cents; als.i the Abilene banks provide maps free of charge to their customers. Q. For quite sometime I've been aware of the fact lhat at Ihe north en- trance lo the downtown post olllrc there arc Ihrre parallel outside doors. Why Is It that two arc faithfully and carefully locked by appointed post ntflre employ- es at closing lime, leaving one unlocked at all limes? A. One door Is left unlocked for Ihe convenience of people who have olficcs upstairs. There's a stairwell between the Inside and outside doors that leads upstairs. Those who need to get upstairs have a key to that doorway and one outside door is left open so they have access to the door leading to the stairway. (Confusing isn't The inside doors to the post office lobby are locked after closing hours. I'd like to know the age limit (or getting a pilot's license? Also, Is there .in ailallon club at Cooper or Abilene High? A. You can ?olo at IB, get your private license at 17 and your commercial license at 18. Itight now there's not an .ivlation club a: either school, but you could probably siart one. Cooper Principal Mslcolm Anihony says to find 10 student1; and a sponsor who are interested In forming an club, then he'll see if It can be affiliated with a subject mailer area and Ihe school will organize an aviation club. At Alls, Principal Kscoe says they've had aviation clubs In Ihe past and if there's enough Interest, they'll lorm another one. Talk to Mr. Webb or Ihe Dean of Stu- denls.
