Aide claims
he protecte
almadge in
early probe
WASHINGTON (AP)-A former
aide to Sen. Herman Talmadge testified
yesterday that he worked with
Talmadge in 1978 to bottle up a Senate
investigation of the senator's financial
affairs.
Daniel Minchew said his par-
ticipation lasted until after he found out
that the Georgia Democrat had accused
him of embezzling funds from a secret
account that Minchew thought was to
be kept hidden.
Minchew testified that he "was not
totally candid" in his first interview
with the Justice Department in late
July 1978 because he was still operating
on Talmadge's orders to "hold this
between us."
MINCHEW TOLD the Senate Ethics
Committee the purpose of the plan was
to keep any probe of Talmadge from
getting into matters other than over-
charges of official Senate expenses. He
said he was particularly concerned that
an investigation might uncover the
diversion of campaign funds.
Talmadge's knowledge of the diver-
sions and of the overcharges of his of-
ficial Senate expenses is the key to the
allegations against him.
The senator already has agreed that
overcharges occurred as a result of
staff error and has repaid $37,604 to the
Senate. But Talmadge denies any
knowledge of the secret account or of
the conversion of campaign con-
tributions and he contends that Min-
chew-his top aide from 1971 through
1974-is a "liar, cheat and embezzler."

THE SKULL OF A MAN believed killed in an Indian attack was unearthed in a geological dig at 360-ye'ir old Wolstenholme
Towne near Williamsburg, Virginia. Ivor Hume, resident archeologist with Colonial Williamsburg, displayed the artifact
in Washington yesterday.
Early British Colony ma be found

WASHINGTON (AP)-The earliest
traces of British colonization in
America have been unearthed near
Williamsburg, Va., in what ar-
cheologists say is the most important
discovery in the country's history.
Ivor Noel Hume, chief archeologist at
Colonial Williamsburg, told a news con-
ference here yesterday that the com-
plete outline of a 17th century plan-
tation town have been unearthed in ex-
cavations along the banks of the James
Rives.
ALSO DISCOVERED in over three
years of digging were the only visored
military helmets found in the new
world, the earliest British-American
pottery ever found and the bones of a
victim from the first Indian massacre.
Relics found at the site already are
changing historical interpretation of
MORRIS GALLERY
PHILADELPHIA (AP)-The work
of Hitoshi Nakazato is on view at the
Morris Gallery of the Pennsylvania
Academy of Fine Arts through June 17.

Graduate School of Fine Arts.

the early colonial period, with definite
evidence that life in the first colonies
was not as crude as had been thought.
Tablewear inlaid in gold and silver,
clothing with golden threads, domestic
conveniences brought from England as
well as arms and armor have been,
unearthed.
THE PROJECT has provided what
Noel Hume calls an American Rosetta
stone for the dating of early-colonial ar-
tifacts. It is considered by experts to be
the most significant discovery of its
kind in British America.
"Archeologists don't like to speak in
superlatives but I can't disagree with
that statement," Noel Hume said.
The first British settlement tosurvive
in America was planted on Jamestown
Island in 1607. Foundations of some late
Jamestown houses survive, but the
original stockaded settlement has
never been found.
ARCHEOLOGISTS HAVE long
believed that the original Jamestown
site was washed away by the James
River, although Noel Hume said he
hopes the new finds will encourage
another look.
The village discovered by Noel
Hume's team was Wolstenholme
Towne, established in 1619 by London
speculators and destroyed in 1622 in the

first Indian massacre to sweep the
Virginia colony.
"What makes these new discoveries
so important is that nothing of the
Jamestown settlement and fort dating
from 1607 has ever been found," Noel
Hume said. "Thus, the remains of
buildings and artifacts unearthed at
Wolstenholme provide us with our
earliest evidence of life and death in
colonial Virinia"

WEDNESDAY, MAY 23
NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD
(George Romero, 1968) 7 & 10:20-AUD A
Father of Romero's sequel, DAWN OF THE DEAD. A group of people trapped in
a farmhouse are surrounded by radioactive ghouls who have come out of their
groves, murdering, mutiliating, and eating raw human flesh. More frightening
than THE BIRDS, more grotesque than FREAKS, more menacing than IVASION
OF THE BODY SNATCHERS, as horrifying a nightmare vision as you could hope
to see on film, "Kill the brain and you kill the ghouls."
MASSACRE AT CENTRAL HIGH
(Renee Doolder, 1976) 0:40 only-AUD A
A victimized transfer student engineers a variety of picturesquely grisly
deaths to avenge himself of the "Little League Gestapo" who have crippled
him. "A very fine piece of work . . . sort of a high school remake of RED
HARVEST."-Dave Kehr. "Starting out like a fifties teen-rebel exercise and
developing into a post-Pekinpah revenger's tragedy, this film is certainly an
oddity."-Monthly Film Bulletin. Winner of the Edgard Ulmer award for excel-
lence in the exploitationgenre.
