(Nexl to Lethbridge Locker and Seafoods) SAN QUENT1N, Calif. (AP) Sirlian Bishara Sirhan, sur- rounded in stcelbound isolation by his books and magazines, ami the other clutter of life in a tiny cubicle, lias completed his first year on San Quentin's death row. "He's adjusted pretty said Associate Warden James L. Tark, administrative over- seer of the day-to-day existence of the convicted slayer of Sena- 1 tor Robert F. Kennedy. Sentenced to die in the Cali- fornia gas chamber for the June, 19G8, assassination in a Los Angeles hotel, the 26-year- old Sirlian was sent to San Quentin May 23, 1969. to await his fate. Standing between Sirhan and death is an automatic State Su- preme Court review of some 100 volumes of his trial. Also, there Ask About The NEW INVISIBLE MULTIFOCAL LENS fMULTILUX) "OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION co.i is a virtual moratorium on Cali- fornia executions because of capital punishment challenges now under consideration by the U.S. Supreme Court. The last execution in California was April 2, 1807. Through it all, Sirhan iias re- mained at "home" in Cell 33, South Side Condemned Unit 1, Underground Silos Used To House Nuclear Missiles PARSHAIA, N.D. (AP) The latest addition to the U.S. arsenal of nuclear missiles is being slipped into underground silos on the prairies of North Dakota. Reporters got a look at one in- stallation of a Minuteman III in- tercontinental ballistic missile here, although the rocket's multiple warhead was not in place as it was lowered from a special vehicle into its under- ground berth by air force crews. The air .force wasn't saying how many of the multiple independently-targeted re-entry vehicle-weapons have been placed in silos attached to Minot Air Force Base in north- west North Dakota. The Pentagon said warheads for the missiles now being in- stalled will be added next month. Minot is the first base to have the MIRV system as part of a Minuteman III rocket, which weighs pounds, about three.tons heavier than earlier models, and has a range of miles at up to miles an hour. Air force officials escorted re- porters to an installation 23 miles northwest of Parshall, where cameramen were permit- ted to photograph the lowering of a Minuteman into a silo. Officials at the base said they were not allowed to say how many of the advanced weapons had been placed in North Da- kota. an area where the only hint of the world outside is an opening high above his cell, admitting a foot-square view of the sky. The biggest problem facing his jailers remains keeping the lOii-pound prisoner alive. Last fall a death-row threat against his life was intercepted. To keep Sirhan safe, he is separated by a steel-mesh screen from the 25 other con- demned men during the daily a.m.-to-2 p.m. exercise pe- riods when cells are opened onto a common pen. In exercising hours, when Sir- han isn't chatting through the screen, he takes a few belts at a heavy punching bag rigged out- side his cell, or does calisthen- ics. In the long hours when he is locked into his 4Vz-foot-wide, seven-foot-high, 11-f o o t -d e e p cell, he reads the many maga- zines to which he subscribes, some of them in was born in from the prison library, and newspapers. For entertainment, Sirhan lis- tens to Arabic and other records on his phonograph. And he can watch television through the bars of his cell, or listen to the radio. He usually ignores the television. Language Education Aid Relaxed EDMONTON (CP) Alber- ta Attorney General Edgar Gorhart said here that Ottawa has relaxed its criteria for fed- eral aid to minority official lan- guage education. Mr. Gerhart, returned to Ed- monton after a week of discus- sions in Ottawa, said the prov- inces had considered Ottawa's original guidelines "a little too rigid." The relaxation, he said, rep- resented a step toward agree- ment between the provinces and the federal government on the matter. At issue is proposed federal aid to educational institutions which offer instruction in French outside of Quebec or in English in Quebec. Mr. Gerhart said Ottawa now las lowered to 60 per cent the amount of instruction time which would have to be in the minority language in order for an institution to receive aid.
