Ogden Standard-Examiner (Newspaper) - February 9, 1976, Ogden, Utah Briefs: Guatemala Welcomes Supplies; 15 Dead GUATEMALA CITY, Guate- mala relief teams took supplies to towns and villages isolated by the Guatemalan earthquake and returned with reports that raised the official toil today to more than dead, an estimated injured and homeless. The death toll jumped repeatedly as the national emergency relief committee got more information from outlying areas cut off until the first relief helicopters reached them late Sunday. Engineers worked to open more roads blocked by land- slides and to repair broken bridges. Relief officials put survivors to work, promising them extra food according to the hours they worked clearing roads or burying the dead. Spot checks by reporters in several sections hit by the devastating quake last Wednesday and more than 525 aftershocks showed aid was getting through. In some places it was only a trickle. But that was welcome for people who had had nothing but bits of stale bread and brackish water for five days. WASH! NGTON (AP) Legislation backed by the Democratic leadership to expand public, service jobs will be taken up by the House this week. The Senate is in recess this week because of Lincoln's Day. The House leaves Wednesday for a shorter holiday. If fully funded, the jobs bill would al- low billion to be spent on public service jobs through September 1977. WASHINGTON (AP) An apparent poor finish in the Oklahoma precinct caucuses may cause Sen. Lloyd Bentsen to drop his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination. Meanwhile, President Ford did his first official campaigning in the nation's first primary, spending the weekend in New Hampshire. Bentsen, a Democrat from Texas, is "taking a close look" at future campaign strategy, he said in a statement Sunday after preliminary returns placed him fourth of five candidates in the Oklahoma caucuses.

WASHINGTON (AP) The Postal Service next month puts a new system to work handling mailed packages but postal officials say they still expect the service's parcel volume to continue to shrink while United Parcel Service, a private company, enlarges its share of the market. The Postal Service points to rate differences for the ex- p 1 a n a t i o n The service's parcel rates are 20 per cent higher than those of United Parcel Service, its chief com- petitor. For example, a two- pound parcel sent from Wash- ington to New York costs 93 cents by the government's parcel post and 75 cents by United Parcel. LUSAKA, Zambia (AP) The Popular Movement (MPLA) today claimed the capture of Huambo, the capital of the rival National Union (UNITA) in south- central Angola, and said its victory in northern Angola is nearly complete. UNITA officials denied the claim, although the Western-backed faction's foreign minister, George Sangumba, admitted city was under attack. The MPLA claimed the UNITA forces and their allies of the National Front (FNLA) fled from Huambo to Silva Porto, their military headquarters 90 miles to the east, several days ago. BARCELONA, Spain (AP) Police fired rubber bullets and smoke grenades, swung truncheons and pounded on honking automobiles but failed to quell a violent an- tigovernment demonstration by an estimated or more persons that tied up Barcelona for five hours. The Catalans demanding home rule and political liberty stoned the police and littered the streets of their capital with park benches and broken glass Sunday in the biggest antigovernment demonstration since the death of Generalissimo Francisco Franco last November. WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) A sociologist here is teaching earthlings how to handle meetings with life from outer space. He says the first thing to remember is not to panic. That's because "they" might be able to teach us a few things if we stick around long enough to let them, says Dr. Richard E. Yinger of Palm Beach Junior College. Yinger is conducting a lecture series in a new field of knowledge, exosociology the study of the social forms of extraterrestrial life.

Ford said his proposals are aimed at "helping all Ameri- cans to live in dignity, security .health." At "a ceremony in the Oval Office, Ford signed a special message to Congress urging passage of the legislation. He 'irst outlined the proposals in lis State of the Union Address Jan. 19. "As President, I intend to do everything in my power to help our nation demonstrate by its deeds a deep concern for the dignity and worth of our older Ford said. "By so ioing, our nation will continue to benefit from the contribu- tions that older persons can make to the strengthening of our nation." BUILD TRUST FUND Ford said the increase in the Social Security tax was neces- sary to build up a trust fund that is being depleted because benefit payments are increas- ing faster than revenues. Under his plan, the tax would increase from 5.85 per cent to 6.15 per cent Jan. 1, 1977. The President said the increase would cost no more than a week for each worker. Ford's proposal for revision of the Medicare program is designed to provide protection against "catastrophic" health costs for about 24 million elderly Americans who have the insurance coverage. Under his plan, Ford said no one would have to pay more than a year for hospital bills and no one more than and nursing would pay annually for doctor fees. But he also proposed some changes in the method of See page 2A, column 5 A 52-Day Coma Broken "And what did DeFreeze l "He said the tape was to be made to show that I took part in it."

"It just amazed us, that's all I can her father, Eugene Steuck, 53 said of the experience. "It's a miracle." Miss Steuck had been in the intensive care unit at Beloit Memorial Hospital since Dec. 22, under treatment for what was de- scribed as a carbon monoxide-induced coma. Five days earlier, she had been found unconscious in her hotel room in Madrid, Spain. Her parents said Miss Steuck, who has a bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin, had been studying overseas at the time, working toward a master's degree in behavioral disabilities. Mrs. Steuck explained that her daughter was staying at a youth hostel in Madrid and borrowed a portable heating unit for her room. She was found unconscious the next day. Doctors had also treated Miss Steuck for pneumonia and a high fever while she was in the coma, and members of her family visited regularly "just looking for the blink of an eyelid, the moving of a leg, anything like as a sign of recognition, Steuck said. "We never gave he said, "Not one day did we give up. We knew she was going to come back. We knew in our heart she would come back." Miss Steuck, who spoke Saturday, re- mains hospitalized in serious condition with "a long way to go yet" toward recovery, her parents said. Her mother said Miss Steuck was able to remember some things that had been spoken in her presence during her coma. ACADEMY TO GET FIRST FEMALE PHYSICAL EDUCATION TEACHER WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) Sue Peterson breaks a 174-year-old tradition at West Point Tuesday. She'll be the first female physical education instructor at the still all-male U.S. Military Academy. She'll have plenty of female company next July 7 when about 100 women plebes among the 1.400 incoming fresh- men join her in making history, but she's not being hired just to educate them. Mrs. Peterson, who has never served in the military, will first be assisting a male instructor in running the phy- sical education classes. But within months she'l! be training the men in vari- ous aspects of physical education, including unarmed com- bat techniques. Then, when the historic first female cadets arrive in July, she'll oversee coed classes. Current plans at the academy call for a nearly identi- cal physical education program for females and males. COSTLY, BUT SUCH JOY Mrs. Cheryl Shaf says it has been a long and. tiring year, costing more than for baby care, but she has turned a corner in caring for her four sur- viving quintuplets.

"This would be not only a ca- lamity for the royal family but a calamity for the whole na- said a retired politician. Other observers said it was premature to speculate about the effect of the scandal on the future of the centuries-old House of Orange. SHOCKED The Dutch reacted with shock and often with disbelief to the rising storm around Queen Ju- liana's popular, 64-year-old hus- band. Many obviously wanted to believe the prince's asser- tion, reported by Den Uyl, that "he has never received any money and would appreciate a full investigation." The Socialist premier said that although his government was not implying that Bernhard was "guilty of reprehensible it had concluded that the prince was the high-ranking Dutch official mentioned in tes- timony Friday before a U.S. Senate subcommittee. Lockheed's president, A. C. Kotchian, told the subcom- mittee the company paid the Dutch official million in the early 1960s to promote the sales of F104 Starfighters and P2B antisubmarine planes, and paid him another a few years ago. Kotchian did not name the Dutchman. Den Uyl said his government would probably set up an inde- pendent commission to make a speedy investigation of the charge. Most political parties with- held comment. The Calvinist Christian Historical Union, which has seven of the 150 seats in the lower house of par- liament, called for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to ban purchases from Lockheed. The Pacifist Socialist Party, which has no seats, said that if wrongdoing is proven, the prince should resign imme- diately as inspector-general of the armed forces, an advisory post he has held since 1970.

In an hour-long news confer- ence and in a question and answer session at the Universi- ty of New Hampshire, Ford discussed a full variety of local, national and international is- sues. They included: If his policies seem similar to Richard Nixon's it is a the recently announced coincidence: "I did not look per cent decline in back at what the former White House press secretary Ron Nessen told reporters the President may make another trip to New Hampshire but the date depends he can do it."

Lawrence Hellendrung, who worked at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, charged that Brown assaulted him at the airport in April 1970. He said Brown took his bag from the baggage area without presenting a check. Hellendrung followed Brown outside, asked him to show the check and grabbed at the bag. Brown testified he hit Hellendrung in reaction when the youth's grab at the case caused a ring on his left hand to cut his finger.
