where U. S. companies of Unit-
ed Brands and Standard Fruit
have major holdings.
U. S. AMBASSADOR Phillip
Sanchez flew over the stricken
area for six hours yesterday
and reported all large agricul-
tural valleys under water and
"crops 90 to 100 per cent
ruined." He said he saw bodies
floating in flood waters and sur-
vivors clinging to trees andI
homes surrounded by water.
"I don't doubt that the death
toll estimated by the govern-
ment - originally thought' to
be excessively high - will now
go even higher," Sanchez said.
fIF THE FIGURES are con-
firmed, Fifi would rank as the

third or fourth most devastat-
ing hurricane in modern his-
tory. A cyclone in 1969 killed
300,000 persons in East Paki-
stan, a hurricane in the West
Indies killed 22,000 persons in
1780 and Hurricane Flora kill-
ed 7,800 persons in Haiti in
1963.
In Miami, Anthonio Valla-
dares, Honduran consul-general,
pleaded for assistance and saidl
the death toll may even reach
as high at 10,000.
"We need help so desperate-
ly. Please. We need everything
- food, medical supplies, ev-
erything," he said. "Every
hour that passes they findmore
people dead and more people
reported missing . . . the de-
struction is terrible. It is im-
possible to figure how many
millions and millions of dollars
we have lost."I

space explorer was to zoom past
Mercury's southern hemisphere
at a distance of 29,814 miles and
complete its rapid-succession
series of black and white pho-
tos.
A member of the JPL scien-
tific television team, Donald
Gault, said he hoped to see
some of the "weird terrain" and
large, smooth basins that were
evident in pictures taken during
the first Mariner 10 visit to
Mercury last March.
Scientists expected the best
photos to be taken within a
four-hour period, which they
called "prime time," while the
space craft zoomed by the south
polar region.
The Mariner photos were
beamed 105 million miles to
Earth where they were received
by a set of huge radar anten-
naes in the California desert.
They were then transmitted to
scientists at the Mariner con-
trol center in Pasadena.
The study of Mercury's make-
up in relation to Mars, Venus,

help provide details of the evo-
lution of the planets closest to
~the sun.:
A series of 84 pictures taken
by Mariner's twin cameras Fri-
day showed mainly the same
desolate, meteorite-pocked sur-
face which the spacecraft photo-
graphed March 29. Not until
yesterday's encounter was pre-
viously unseen territory to come
into the cameras' view.

It used to be calm and beau-
tiful."
STUDENT HOSTESS Bev Lo-
der describes the group as
"really sweet, great people."
She adds, "Everytime they walk'
by a classroom, they go crazy.
They're really interested in
good education." ,
Rhodes was clearly the fa-
vored speaker of the weekead.
According to Huebner, "the
audience hung on every word
Rhodes said. They were very
interested in innovative pro-
grams like Inteflex (six year
.medical program)."
According to Overseth, the
University is highly dependent
on private contributions fromn

the Jib. Although some money
is earmarked for particular
rposes, most is funneled into
a general fund. Several rniem-'
bers have buildings named after
them in honor of their contribu-
tions, notably the Power Center
which was built largely with
money from the Power family.
HOWEVER, a lu m n u s Jim
Waterman had no hand in -the
building of Waterman Gym, al-
though friends this weekend
enjoyed calling him "Waterman
Jim."
Overseth points out that "the
radical 60's turned very few
alumni away, and almost all
came back. They're very faith-
ful. "

* Mercury, a scant 3,000 miles
in diameter, is the innermost
planet of the solar system. It
is in scorching proximity to the
sun and temperatures range
from about 650 degree farenheit
on the lighted side to 300 de-
grees below zero on the dark
side.
Although Mariner's nearest
pass was at such a distance that
planets Mercury's size could fit
between the spacecraft and the
surface, the powerful cameras
were able to pick out features
as small as a half-mile across.
The space probe flew within
430 miles of Mercury on its
first fly-by.
