Police said two of the attackers carried guns and a third carried a knife when they accosted Detective Edward Codelia in the hallway! Evidently they planned to rob him of heroin he had just purchased as part of a police evidence-gathering operation.

HOURS LATER, the Hoff-mans were shot repeatedly at close range by two Negro men who hopped out of a car while the Hoffman's were walking along a street here. Hoffman was under indictment for the fatal shooting of a Black Muslim in St. Louis last year and the wounding of two others, including local sect leader Clyde X. The other man wounded in the 1966 triple shooting, which BUY Detective Attackers an alarm went out for the man who fled the scene. Chief of Detectives Frederick Lussen said Codelia, a two-year member of the police narcotics bureau, completed "a buy of heroin" in an apartment in the building just before the attack. ONE OF THE MEN, Lussen said, pointed a pistol at the detective and the other held a knife at his stomach. At one point, one of the attackers had the detective's gun, but Codelia wrestled it from him and fired. Seconds later he shot the second armed attacker and wounded the third as he attempted to retrieve the dropped pistol of one of his fallen comrades. Codelia said he fired five shots during the brief tussle. "First, in all things and at all times it has been and is my wish to be motivated by and to execute the will of God."

Anti-U.S. By Police Milan, Italy (UPI) A pro-Communist Chinese terrorist ring allegedly bent on blowing up the United States library and consulate here has been broken, police disclosed yesterday. Police detained two men and a woman in the crackdown on the ring following an investigation of a foiled bombing attempt at the headquarters of the U.S. South European Task Force (SETAF) in the north Italian city of Vi-cenza. SETAF is attached to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. ONE PRIME suspect, Giovanni Sacchi, 63 years old, a wartime underground fighter, apparently escaped the police dragnet by leaping from a first-floor apartment window. Police said they seized 61 sticks of dynamite, 42 detonators, a quantity of fuses and a book, the pages of which had been carved out for use as an explosive container. The dynamite sticks were found in a hardware store downstairs from Sacchi's Forum On U.N. dianapohs at 2 p.m. next Thursday.

Majority leader Everett M. Dirksen (R-Ill.) opposed any change in the rule requiring a two-thirds majority of senators voting to stop debate. He said the rule is "a safeguard for a minority against the tyranny of the majority." Majority leader Mike Mansfield (D-Mont.), although inclined toward permitting a three-fifths majority to halt a filibuster, urged his colleagues "to think very carefully and very long before they change the rules too drastically." He said the Senate is the only legislative body left in the world that has "a degree of flexibility that protects minorities and small states." In the first business since Tuesday's session-opening formalities, Senator George Mc-Govern (D-S.D.) introducted for himself and Senator Thurston B. Morton (R-N.Y.) an amendment to the rules to permit a three-fifths majority to cut off a filibuster. Senator Thomas H. Kuchcl (R-Calif.) then submitted an alternative plan under which a majority of the Senate membership, or 51 senators, could halt a filibuster after an issue had been debated for 20 days. Connor Plans To Leave Cabinet Post i New York Times News Service Washington Secretary of Commerce John T. Connor, having advocated the merger of his department with the Department of Labor, plans to resign from the cabinet within a few weeks. The merger was proposed by President Johnson Tuesday night in his State of the Union message. Connor's support for the merger, persons close to him said yesterday, stemmed in large measure from the discovery he made shortly after becoming secretary of commerce two years ago that the Commerce Department ha I relatively little influence on the formulation of basic gov ernmental economic policies. He reportedly came to be lieve that a merged depart ment, speaking in one voice for the entire industrial sector of the economy, could not be ignored. folded, you might have real difficulty identifying some most familiar taste.

Denton 'D and Ralph Harvey (R), will get up to $1,000 a year each in extra Federal retirement income because they resigned their seats by last Dec. 30. The names of the 10 House members in the group were inserted in yesterday's issue of the Congressional Record by House Speaker John W. Mc-Cormack (D-Mass.). Senator A. Willis Robertson (D-Va.) also resigned before the deadline. However, Robertson said he resigned in order to give his successor, Senator William B. Spong Jr. (D-Va.), a head start on the Senate seniority ladder. IN ALL CASES, the resignations came after the 89th Congress had adjourned in October. Two of the House members Representatives Harold D. Cooley (D-N.C.) and Ralph J. Rivers (D-Alaska) said the extra pension money was the principal reason they resigned early. Cooley said he and others Him; fs k - - fc It's all on TWA's" direct flight to Los Angeles at 1 1 :05 am every day. For reservations, agent, or TWA at 635-4381. Welcome to the world Jr L , ,..

Cooley said the bonus resulted from two laws passed by Congress, one to encourage early retirement of Federal employes, and the other to provide a cost-of-living allowance. The increases amounted to about 1 per cent of the salary for early retirement and about 3.9 per cent for cost of living.
