Ine 27*4214.) Sheriff Hopes Close to Last Grave YUBA CITY, Calif. <AP) — Sheriff Roy Whiteaker says he's convinced some of tilie orchard sites his men probed in the search for more mass slay- inig victims were one* dug as graves, Uhen filed w without bodies. "I hope we're very close" to the last grave, Whiteaker said Monday alter again ordering his men to search for more possible burial 'sites like those which have yielded 23 stabbed and hacked bodies. WMtoafcer said that "a couple" of the 'suspected graves which contained no bodies "appeared to have been dug as graves." One wa-s among three sites where stetarchetns dug Monday and found nothing, the second day no more bodies were found. The other was among earlier diggings, lie said, Whatteaker refused to comment on a theory that the murderer might have dug each grave before selecting a victim—and that if none was found returned to M in the hofe to avoid 'arousing suspicion. Whiteaker said Roy Delonig, 52, of Marysville had been taken- into protective custody but declined to say why. Deputies believe is one of the last persons to see Sigurd E. Beiar- man, one of fflie Victims, before his body was found in the 19th grave. Delong told MarysviUe police May 4 that the last time he saw Beierman was about two months eaaiier, getting into Corona's van. The first body was discovered accidentaJly May 20 by Gcro KagMro, a farmer who said he spotted an empty grave-size hole in his peach orchard. He returned eight hours latov and found it filled in. Believing someone had buried stolen property, Kaghiro called deputies who found it was a grave. The sheriff said Monday he still believes there aiv more bodies, possibly under land ilrjoded with irrigation water. "We've pretty wdl exhausted the search in the obvious places," he said, except for four 01* live suspicious sunken- in areas in a submerged corner of the J.L. Sullivan ranch where 21 corpses were found. •'There's still couple of acres under water and it w-U b3 a few weeks before the water settles enough" to allow digging, he said. Juan V. Corona, a37 year-oM fi'-.-m labor contractor charged wtb 1C of the murders was described Monday as "very quiet, veil mannered" prisoner at Yuba County jail in adjoining Maiyfiville. Sup I Am.

Rejecting a compariy, offer of « 20 per cent wage increasie over two yews, 4 per cent of which htoged on government approval of higher tariffs, the unions, uemautted • H. per «w»t hike over two years. "We very' much regret that the unions representing our em- ployes have chosen to inconvenience tine public by calling ' a strike," the company prudent, Earl D. Hilburn, said in a statement. "We know that our remaining diflerences •wtfP'be equitab'y resolved— not on the picket line but at the bargaining table " Although iU. public offices were closed, the company said it would maintain government communieait'uu's sevv'-ces, leased private wires, th« Telex and TWX teletype exchanges, various automated electronic data services and the new s-age service, operated jointly with the post office. ' Supervisory and engineering personnel were to fill ia for striking employes on the government and business communication services, which are largely automated.
