Authorities were unsure of the exact order of terror in the four offices. Don Jones, reporter for radio station WSMI which has offices in an adjoining suite, said he heard shots, looked out the door and saw Kline "firing indiscriminately. I saw flames from the guns." Jones locked himself in his office and telephoned for help. Jones said Kline tried the station door before he fled.

(AP) — Robert H. Gillman Jr., 50, of Savanna was killed Wednesday when his car ran off Illinois 84 south of Hanover, struck two trees and burst into flame. Gillman was pronounced dead at the scene. Damage to the car was estimated et $1,800 by state police. belong there," Self said. Self and Sweeney said they saw two men walking to the car, which hay Massachusetts license tags, from the direction of the water. One carried a duffel bag and the other the suitcase. When the police approached the men, they ran, dropping the suitcase and duffel bag but hanging on to a carbine from which several shots were fired, Self said. After the men escaped, the police found the suitcase was crammed with money and the duffel bag contained the wetsuit, frogman's fins, and a underwater face mask. At the shore line the police found the abandoned boat. Hermit Questioned Using helicopters and dogs, police combed a jungle area near Biscayne Bay where the two men were first spotted as they ran toward their car. The search flushed an unidentified hermit, about 55, who was taken into custody for questioning. Police said the hermit, whom neighbors said had lived in the lush undergrowth for years living mostly on coconuts, had $500 in his possession. My first concern and the father's concern is the girl's safety," said Fox. Patrolman Self said he had been unaware that an effort was underway to ransom the kid­ naped girl. When Fox was asked if the FBI knew in advance or had told local police about the ransom, he said, "We'd prefer not to comment on that" As far as our men are concerned that's one of these things that won't happen again in a thousand years—they were just in the right place at the wrong time," said a Miami police official. Miami Police Lt. James Knight said his estimate, without counting, was that the bag contained $500,000. Marvin Mathes, about 35, caretaker of the estate—part of the city park system—where the boat landed, said a man and a woman driving a car similar to the- one police described as a blue Volvo visited him Wednesday. The visitors asked what time the park closed and whether they could bring a boat or swim in the area, Mathes said. He described the woman as being in her late 20's and apparently of Spanish descent. The man, in his late 30's, wore white ducks. As Kline hurried down the stairs from his offices above a drugstore on the town square, he passed Ray Unterbrink who was on his way up to join the party. Unterbrink, an administrator for the agency, had dropped off some of the Kline children and gone to park his car. When he reached the offices, the dead and dying were found lying in pools of blood and spent shell casings. Red palm prints marked the walls and doors of the offices. Ornaments had been knocked from the Christmas tree, toy autos and a checkers set were covered with blood and a partially eaten apple and lollypop remained in mute testimony to the abruptly ended Christmas. Carlinville Police Chief Robert Stratton told reporters that Kline had previously threatened social worker Wildgrube with a gun, firing it into the floor at his feet then slugging him. Stratton said Kline was sentenced to two years for these incidents; but was released after serving only a few months of his sentence. St Louis County Police also reported they had arrested Kline in May for abducting one of his children and assaulting a police officer. Details of the two arrests were not immediately available. Kline who was separated from his wife in May, was reported to be a plumber for a St. Louis firm. Of the seven Kline children brought to the agency for the party, one girl was married and lived in St. Charles and six others lived in foster homes scattered throughout the Carlinville area. William Sanders, regional director of the agency, said the family had a long history of child neglect and other troubles. Every-Day Peril Sanders told a news conference, "a man like Kline walks into our offices every day. Our staff is continually subjected to such dangers. We have no weapons to protect ourselves." "Those were strong words," he said referring to the above, "but they had to be said." Sanders said he thought the motive was Kline's "mental unbalance and extreme agitation over imagined wrongs." The dead were removed to the Weise Funeral Home in Carlinville. NOTICE All Members of American Legion Post 141.

The Australian Embassy in Phnom Penh, which represents the U.S. government in Cambodia, said it expected that the 12 Americans being freed there would be flown by commercial airliner to Bangkok Friday. The U.S. and South Vietnamese commands in Saigon announced, meanwhile, that American, South Vietnamese and enemy casualties all increased last week although no major sustained ground fighting reported. The U.S. Command also reported four sharp skirmishes Wednesday in which it said American forces killed 131 enemy troops. Prince Norodom Sihanouk, the Cambodian chief of state, told a news conference in Phnom Penh he was releasing his prisoners so they can spend Christmas with their families. Sihanouk called another news conference two hours later to announce he had received a "cordial" message from President Johnson. He said the President told him the release of the prisoners would contribute to an improvement in relations between their two countries. Johnson also assured him of "the continuing friendship of the American people for Cambodia and its people," Sihanouk said. In his announcement that he was freeing the prisoners the prince complained that Washington had fulfilled none of the conditions he set for the release, and especially that Johnson had not acceded to his request for a personal letter saying efforts would be made to stop violation of Cambodian territory by U.S. and South Vietnamese troops. The release of three Americans held prisoner by the Viet Cong was made contingent on a Christmas Day battlefield meeting between U.S. and Viet Cong delegations to arrange the transfer of the men. The proposal was made in a radio broadcast by the National Liberation Front, the political arm of the Viet Cong. Although both the United States and South Vietnam have repeatedly refused to recognize the NLF, calling it an outlaw group and a tool of Communist North Vietnam, the U.S. Command said it is giving the proposal serious consideration. "We welcome any indication of such a release," said a U.S. spokesman. "We are studying the statement" The NLF broadcast said the Front had decided to release "a number of U.S.-puppet prisoners," suggesting the Viet Cong might release even more Americans and some South Vietnamese. Larry Morgan, Rt. 2 Mt. Vernon, Wednesday reported the theft of a .22 caliber pistol from his automobile. Morgan told Mt, Vernon Police the weapon was taken Tuesday between 2 and 9 p.m. while his ear was parked at the General Radiator Co. or between 7 and 9 p.m. while his car was parked at the high school.

At Panaca, Nev., a bit less than 200 miles away, school superintendent Preston Price, gave this description: "I was sitting in the office and desks and furniture began moving back and forth. Coat hangars on racks were rattling . . . We could feel the tremor for nearly a minute." Shock waves also were felt at the mining hamlet of Tonopah, 70 miles away, but weakly. At St. George, Utah, where some past blasts have been felt, authorities said they had no reports on this one. In Las Vegas the motion lasted about 30 seconds. An observer on the 22nd floor of a hotel casino said the motion made her feel "weak in the knees, like I had to balance." The AEC had said shock waves should be perceptible for about 250 miles. At the control point 12 miles from ground zero, the rippling ground action lasted five or six seconds. Newsmen watched the action on television screens, which flickered out momentarily as the shock hit. The AEC said the energy yield of the Shot—described as a weapons test — was just about what was expected and there was no venting of radiation into the atmosphere. A spokesman caHed the test "very successful." The shot, scheduled for Wednesday, was delayed a day for fear unfavorable winds might carry radiation toward populated areas should there be venting. c'amped a rigid policy of "no comment" on all reports that the men may be released for Christmas.
