52 THE LETHBWDGE HERAID Wedneitlay, 13, 1972 No major change for man of the future DAVIS, CsUt. (AP) -Man of the future is often piciurcd In science fiction as having a large domed head and short amis, but an expert on evolution says man in years probably vill look pretty much as he docs i liis society and culture and even today. _ Dr. G. Ledyard Stebbens, founder of thD genetics depart- ment at the University of Cali- fornia at DavLs, says man will continue to develop, changing Ihe workings of his not Us basic pliysical appear- ance. "You coulcl take a Cro-Mag- non man and clean him up and dress him in modern clothing ard parade him down Madison Stebbens said, "and he would not attract special no- tice. "The same probably would be true If you could transport a modern man years into Spain is cracking clown on its drinking drivers MADRID (AP) With traf- fic deaths soaring, Spain bar. de- cided to crack down on drinking drivers. A campaign launched by the central traffic board asks mo- torists "to always have one drink less." The board also is asking for laws permitting police to test al- cohol content in suspects' blood. The campaign has been set off by the explosion of the auto- mobile age plus a mounting death loll, dead in 1971. Spain has about five million registered vehicles and also five million licensed drivers. Most of the fatal and injury accidents occur on the nation's overcrowded network of two- lane highways and roads. The board says nearly five per cent of all accidents are caused by traffic violations. A study is under way to find how many of them have roots in al- cohol. the future. Changes that affect our outward appearance could not be very great." The reason, he said, Is that man has largely short-circuited his physical evolution through technology. He has DO need to evolve new forms or new physi- cal capabilities because he can invent machines to extend the natural limits on his capabili- ties. Man survives not by changing physically, Stebbens said, but by changing his environment and by developing new tech- niques to deal with his environ- ment.

The brass sect.on, above, got ,t. framing on itreet corners. Salvation Army undertakes experiment in rock music New York Times Service New York It's unlikely that long-haired, modly dressed members of the Salvation Army will soon be playing the Bea- tles' instead of "The Old Rugged Cross" on street corners across the land. But the Army, that long-time bastion of brass instrumental- ists playing standard hymns, is experimenting with rock music. And while the idea doesn't sound bad to some Salvationists, it strikes a jarring note among many in the'organization, where short, neatly trimmed hair is the general rule. In an effort to spread Its mes- Europe monetary fund establislied jage of evangelical Christianity to young people this summer, the Army's Eastern Territory sponsored a tour by a hard-play- ing, 13-msmber teen-age rock group called appropriately enough, "The Salvation .Army Band." Though most of the Army's 1300 band units in the country still play traditional music, the Salvationists have also recently supported rock bands in the Midwest and Nova Scotia. The Band's tour comes at a me when the Army has been tting back on the number of street units and sometimes lying on cassette tape players r the music. In New York (AP) Finance min- isters of the 10 European Com- mon Market countries an- nounced agreement today to set up a European monetary fund, probable forerunner of a cen- tral bank that eventually might Usue a common currency. Meeting separately, foreign ministers of the 10 mapped to- ken action against terrorism in a discussion spurred by last week's massacre of Israelis at the Munich Olympics and the shooting of an Israeli diplomat in Brussels Monday. The ministers agreed that terrorists operations should not be blamed on the government of any country, 211 Italian infor- mant said. This was designed to avoid provoking Arab retaliation against West- ern oil interests. Instead they agreed to take a united stand when terrorism comes before the United Na- Oons and to step up co-oper- itioa among their police forces and Interior ministries, the Ital- ian said. The monetary fund agree- ment was announced by Kav Klasen, president of the West German Federal Bank. He de- scribed the new fund as "a co- ordinating to be man aged by the countries' centra tanks. The agreement made it likely hat a Common Market summit will convene as Oct. 10 in Paris. It is designed to give new directions o the market after Britain and perhaps Norway and mem- >ers Jan.. 1. The summit meeting would officially create the fund, put- ing the Common Market fur- hcr on the road to full eco- nomic and monetary unity. Up now, it has been mainly a customs union with the begin- nings of a joint farm policy. The fund would have one main initial task-. Keeping the values of European currencies closer together than the cur- rencies of the rest of the 2Vi-per-cent margin of fluctuation around fixed ex- change rates instead of per cent. To help do this, the mem- ber countries would make about billion available lo one another on one-year cred- its. The fund would also handle monthly currency clearings. At least some transactions would be written in the com mon market's "Unit of Ac which used to be worth SI U.S. Since last December's dollar- devaluation, however, its value is about This uni could become the basis of a West European currency som day.

'Rock is another gimmick, ut the Army itself started as stunt which said tay Steadman-Allen, the head the Army's International lusic Editorial Department, eadquartered in London.

"Our founder, Gen. William Sooth, was accused of using ir- cligious music, but he replied hat he would use the Devil's wn tune if it would turn one soul out of Schoch said. The new rock groups, though hey are composed of dedicated young Salvationists, have been causing murmurings of riiscon- .ent in an organization where ts ministers have the ranks of military officers and its laymen are called soldiers.
