(AP) — A high-level court of inquiry— which can recommend anything from bravery medals to courts martial—has been ordered by the Navy to study the loss of the intelligence ship Pueblo. The court of five admirals was directed Friday by the Pacific Fleet commander, Adm. John J. Hyland, to "inquire into the circumstances relating to the seizure of the USS Pueblo and the subsequent detention of the vessel and the officers and crew." Basic issues to be decided include whether the Pueblo's skipper, Cmdr. Lloyd M. Bucher, had the "power to resist" when his ship was taken by the North Koreans. A spokesman said the court also will consider whether statements allegedly made by the crew members during their 11- month confinement constituted violations of the military Code of Conduct—although the Navy said such violations are "not a criminal offense" and cannot be prosecuted. The court will not meet for several weeks—until intensive intelligence debriefings of the crewmen is completed. It can only make recommendations to higher officials and has no power to take punitive or disciplinary action, the Navy said. Yanks Wounded At the same time, the Navyj disclosed that the two top officers and nine other crewmen aboard the Pueblo at the time of its capture were wounded by North Korean gunfire. One, fireman Duane D. Hodges of Creswell, Ore., was mortally wounded. The injuries of the others have healed, the Navy said. Bucher, the executive officer, Lt. Edward R. Murphy, and the eight other crewmen will receive Purple Heart medals in a ceremony next week. The Navy also disclosed that Bucher is suffering from physical and emotional exhaustion and has been moved to a private room in a building separate from the other crew quarters at the U.S. Naval Hospital. In explaining the court of inquiry, Capt. Gale E. Krouse, Pacific Fleet senior judge advocate, told a news conference there "will be no speculation on what could or would" be done to members of the crew for the loss of the ship and for any actions while they were prisoners of North Korea. "We cannot answer inquiries , on any alleged crimes ... or on j the conduct of the crew . . . until the court of inquiry has completed its work," Krouse said. Code of Conduct Krouse said individual circumstances would decide if any of the crewmen violated the military's Code of Conduct, a 1955 executive order signed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower after a study of American prisoners in the Korean War. The code, a guideline to U.S. servicemen who become prison- Weather Here And Elsewhere MT. VERNON WEATHER Friday high 55, low 45.

Flies to Ranch Following the news confer- once Johnson flew to his Texas ranch looking for some warm sun to help him shake off a cold and cough that have bothered him fcr nearly two months. He was greeted by bright sun, a 70- degree temperature and a forecast of slightly cooler weather for the- weekend. He said he would use the time at the ranch to tie up some remaining loose ends of his administration before stepping aside Jan. 20 for Richard M. Nixon. The chief tasks facing him are the preparation of a budget, an economic message to Congress and a State of the Union address. He said he expected to stay at his ranch through New Year's Day. Johnson met reporters in his Washington office while three television screens near his desk showed the triumphant scene aboard the aircraft carrier Yorktown as America's three moon-traveling astronauts were brought aboard. Shortly afterward, Johnson t e 1 o p h o ned the astronauts aboard the /carrier and told them "we want to welcome you home. Thank God you are back safe again." Johnson said Air Force Col. Frank Borman, Navy Capt. James A. Lcvell Jr., and Air Force Maj. William A. Anders had blazed the way into a new era. "You made us feel kin to those Europeans five centuries ago whe first heard news of the Mew World," he said. Johnson's mood of confidence and satisfaction with the way things have been going lately dominated the news conference, but each time he referred enthusiastically to the accomplishments of his administration he brought himself up short by re- cciUin.? the Vietnam war Husband At Work Kills Her 5 Children And Self Gale Martin Candidate For Mt.
