causes 'heavy
los's'In Iran.

From AP and UPI
ANKARA, Turkey - A major ear-
thquake rocked the mountain villages
-of southeastern Iran-, yesterday
evening, causing "heavy loss" of life
and severe damages, Tehran Radio
The U.S. Geological Survey reported
that the quake measured 7.3 on the
Richter scale and occurred in southeast
Iran near the border with Afghanistan
in the same region where a quake with
a magnitude of 7.7 in 1978 killed about
15,000 people.
U.S.G.S. EARTHQUAKE monitors at
Golden, Colo., reported that Tuesday's
cuake occurred at 8:53 p.m. Local time
(1:23p.m. EDT).
Tehran University said the quake
was centered in the town of Anduhjerd,
430 miles southeast of Tehran and 30
miles east of the city of Kerman, accor-
ding to the official Pars news agency.
The agency reported that five pedple

were killed in Kerman and 60 others
were injured.
TEHRAN RADIO, monitored in
Ankara, said there' were "heavy
losses" of life in the Anduhjerd, Shabaz
and Golbaz regions. There was also
heavy damage to buildings, the radio
said, without giving further details.
Pars said that rescue helicopters had
trouble reaching the affected villagers
because of the height of the mountains
in the region but many rescue teams
had already left to tour the region by
The Richter scale is a measure of
ground motion as recorded on
seismographs. Every increase of one
number means a tenfold increase in
magnitude. Thus a reading of 7.5 reflec-
ta an earthquake 10 times stronger than
one of 6.5.
An e rthquake of 7.0 on the Richter
scale is a "major" earthquake, capable
of widespread heavy damage; 8.0 is a
"great" quake, capable of tremendous,

Rash of rhythm in royal romance
L OVE, ESPECIALLY royal romance, was made for the poets, and the
rhymesters have not been found'wanting in their salutes to the event
that Fleet Street hath annointed the last great royal wedding of this century.
From the pen of the poet laureate-and the lips of cloth-capped bards in local
pubs, stanzas have poured forth in profusion praising the lovers Charles
and Diana, to be married today. As promised, ailing 75-year-old poet
laureate Sir John Betjeman delivered himself of a 28-line ode that owed as
much to his love for British architecture-and in particular the work of Sir
Christopher Wren-as to his admiration for Prince Charles and Lady Diana
I'm glad that you are marrying at home
Below Sir Christopher's embracing dome
Four square on that his golden cross and ball ,
Complete our own cathedral of St. Paul.
Blackbirds in city churchyards hail the dawn
Charles and Diana on your wedding morn.
Comedian Spike Milligan, a favorite of Prince Charles' from the radio "Goon
Show," compared a poetic spoof that began with Prince Philip telling his 32-
year-old son it was high time he heard wedding bells:
Thirty years in the placeyou've spent
And notpaid your po mothera penny rent
You must get married aon
Prince Andrew wants your room.
From there the bard went on to describe the debate in Parliament over the
wedding costs between Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and opposition
Labor Party leader Michael Foot:
- Said Foot: "how can we afford the expense?"
Said Thatcher: "we'll cut our national defense."
Said Foot: "so if he wants to marry her
"We'll have to sell another aircraft carrier."

Royal wedding center

o London-
LONDON (AP)-A glorious display
of fireworks flashed over this old town
last night as Britons celebrated the
lovematch of their future king on the
eve of his wedding to Lady Diana Spen-
Prince Charles opened the huge
fireworks spectacle by lighting the first
of 101 beacons strung across the realm
to mark his marriage.
POLICE ESTIMATED 400,000 people
jammed the center of Hyde Park for the
fireworks display and thousands of
others lined the two-mile route of
today's wedding procession, the streets
cloaked in Union Jacks and bunting.

s attention
Amid the celebrations, a
Buckingham Palace spokesman repor-
ted two junior footmen employed at the
palace were arrested July 18 for the
theft of explosives, and British army
experts in Northern Ireland defused a
400-pound bomb.
The palace spokesman said the foot-
men were off duty when they were
arrested in Gloucestershire 100 miles
west of London.
BOTH THE - spokesman and
Gloucestershire police said they knew
of no plot to use the explosives against
the royal family or in the sectarian war
in Northern Ireland.
Ardent royalty lovers already were
camping out on Monday in central Lon-
don for the wedding. "If you are going
to be a fanatic, you might as well do a
good job of it," said one fan as he was
finding a spot for the wedding
