COLLA MICHERI, Italy (AP) Norwegian explorer and navi- gator Thor Heyerdahl's papyrus boat Ha II has rounded Cape Yuby off southwestern Morocco and is headed toward the Ca- nary Islands, his wife said today. The latest information about the Atlantic crossing was given by Yvonne Heyerdahl after she heard from her husband by radio. Heyerdahl and his crew sailed last week from Safi, Morocco, in an attempt to prove that Egyptians may have crossed the ocean to America more than years ago in papyrus boats.

Alberta Government To Reduce Royalties On Oil Sands Production EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta government will reduce Great Canadain Oil Sands Lim- itcd's royalties on product i o n from the Athabasca oil sands by one-half, it was announced Wednesday. A cabinet order-in-council or- i denng Hie 50-per-cent remis- sion said Great Canadian suf- fered a loss in 1969 and anticipated losses annual- ly for the next few years. If royalty rates were not re- duced, they would cause the company "great hardship." Great Canadian, controlled by Sun Oil. Company, is the only firm authorized to pro- duce oil from the saturated sands in Fort McMurray, area 250 miles northeast of Edmon- ton. The Alberta government fol- lows a policy of tightly con- trolling production from the oil sands so as not to cut into markets for production from conventional oil wells in the province. The oil sands con- tain one of the world's largest reserves of oil. H. H. Somerville. deputy pro- vincial minister of mines and minerals, said Wednesday that GCOS production royalties paid to the government at the pre- vious rate would have come to about in the current fiscal year. The remission will cut that figure in half. "The plant means a lot to JU.S. Poses No Threat To Cambodian Neutrality Nixon Faces Soviet Showdown BOSTON (CP) Dr. Eugene V. Hostow, undersecretary of state for political affairs under former president Johnson, says President Nixon is facing a "confrontation" with Russia in the Middle East as serious as the Cuban missile crisis that confronted President Kennedy. Rostow told the Boston World Affairs Council the only hope of avoiding a showdown lies in implementation of the resolu- tion passed by the UN Security Council Nov. 22. 1967. Rostow said, however, that he doesn't think the Soviet Union now wants a z'estoration of the ceasefire that went into effect at that time. The resolu- tion called for Israel's with- drawal from Arab territory in return for Arab recognition of Israel's right to exist and also guaranteed Israel's right to use of the Suez canal. 19-Year-Olel Vote Down Drain PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Or- egon voters refused Tuesday to lower the voting age to 19 from 21. Advocates of the change said community reaction to campus troubles was responsible. Nearly two thirds of the vot- ers rejected the age change. More''than half of the state's voters went to the polls. Gov. Tom McCall said he was sorry and so did state treasurer Robert' Straub, both of whom campaigned for the 19-year-old vote. McCall had envisaged the out- come earlier when his office was flooded with letters of pro- tests to campus disturbances. "The 19-year-old vote is down the he said. McCall, a Republican, won de- nomination in the primary to pick party candidates for the November election, and Straub won the Democratic nomination to oppose him. This set up a re- play of the 1966 contest when McCall, then secretary of state, beat Straub by votes.

Churchill "entertained a cu- rious interest in the Sir Julian Huxley recalls. Huxley, scion of one of Brit- ain's most gifted families who became a distinguished scien- tist and author in his own- right, has other memories from meeting the famous around the world. Joseph Stalin had thin, slop- ing shoulders. The Soviet dic- tator acquired a robust, broad-chested look by wearing his military greatcoat. George Bernard Shaw liked to tease Lady Nancy Astor 'about her boyish bosom; then both would giggle. On his H. G.

Sir Julian. 82, elder' brother of the novelist Aldous Huxley, looks back on a life that links the puritariism of the Vic- torian age with today's per- missive society. He clearly welcomes some changes, among them the respectabil- ity he helped to create for birth control practices. QUEEN 'DUMPY' As a boy in 1900 he saw Queen Victoria, ''a dumpy old woman, dressed in black, an epitome of a fading epoch." Huxley recalls the sexual frustrations of his f e 11 o w schoolboys at Eton, then adds of today's society: "Sometimes it seems a little too permissive, but at any rate most of its younger mem- bers are spared the anguished conflicts of my own time. Their inner lives are rarely complicated by repression or guilt feelings about though they are often troubled by the violence and stupidity of the adult world." Huxley wr'ote books dur- ing a dual career as biologist and author. Huxley leaves this epitaph: "If I am to be remembered, I hope it will not be primarily for my specialized scientific work, but as a generalist; one to whom, enlarging Terence's words, nothing human, no- thing in external nature, was alien." WASHINGTON (AP) A White House spokesman said today he does not interpret In- donesian President Suharto's call for the removal of all for- eign forces from Cambodia to have been directed against the United States or South Vietnam. Presidential press secretary Ronald Ziegler told reporter's that in his opinion Suharto was speaking about the presence of North Vietnamese forces in Cambodia. "We have stated clearly that we will be out by July Zieg- ler said. "We pose no threat to Cambodian neutrality." He reported that President Nixon felt that the Indonesian leader's remarks Wednesday night were well slated. Suharto said at a White House banquet the threat of a wider war has prompted non-Com- munist Asian nations to band to- gether for mutual security.

"A successful conclusion of oil recovery ex- periment in the oil sands means a tremendous amount to the people of Alberta."
