TROUBLES MOUNT FOR NEW LINER (Continued From Page One) loans. Newspaper commenta tors all agreed the ship's faults went beyond the troubles expected on any shakedown cruise. The public wants a complete account of what went wrong, how it happened and where the blame is to be laid," said the Daily Express. The Daily Telegraph commented. "For an acceptance trial to be failed by a ship of such prestige must be unprecedented in modern times." The liner left the Clydeside shipyard in Scotland last month for speed trials during which it developed an oil leak that forced cancellation of a Christmas charity cruise. It sailed Dec. 23 from Green- och, Scotland for a 10-day shakedown cruise to the Canary Islands. Aboard were 500 Cunard employes and their families to test the ship's facilities and 250 workmen who were to complete outfitting the vessel. Tn bin Difficulty Engire trouble developed Chrlstr.-; «.

The rot r .s n 't'rb'.ne were found to Suffered Beatings Pueblo Men Tell About Red Terror By BARRY KRAMER Associated Press Writer SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) - Two of the USS Pueblo's enlisted men give the first detailed accounts today of beatings suffered by crewmen during 11 months of North Korean captivity. The intelligence ship's commanding officer, Cmdr. Lloyd Bucher, has said the North Koreans made a "studied attempt to create terror among my men and myself." Quartermaster l.C. Charles B. Law, Jr. 27, of Port Townsend, Wash., and Radioman 2.C. Lee R. Hayes, 26, of Columbus, Ohio, will describe examples of beatings at a news conference, the Navy announced Sunday. Newsmen will be allowed to question Law and Hayes, the i\avy said. Law "took it the worst of anyone in the crew," an informed source said. In an interview at Midway Island, while he and the crew were en route home last week, Bucher told newsmen, "Every member of the crew had been subjected to terror of some kind or another. Whether it was actual physical beating or not is beside the point, because the terror of expecting a beating is just as terrifying. "The threat of a beating was always there. Every time they decided to beat someone it was done from an emotional point of view. It was always done from a studied attempt to create terror among my men and myself." Ail were Maltreated The director of the U.S. Naval hospital where the 82 crewmen are staying, Rear Adm. Horace Warden, said last Thursday all of the men "have a history of physical maltreatment" At the 121st Evacuation Hospital in Seoul, where the crewmen were taken after their release, Army doctors said 20 to 30 per cent of the crew showed "some evidence of maltreatment recent enough to detect" They said one sailor, not identified, bad a broken rib. Others had bruises, scars and black eyes. A Navy spokesman said Law and Hayes were directed to not to answer questions about the capture of the intelligence ship off North Korea last Jan. 23 or about other details of their 11- month captivity. After Bucher's first state- mens about the beatings, President Johnson ordered an investigation. Part of the investigation was released over the weekend! in Washington. It told of statements by Bucher that North Korean threats to kill his crew one by one contributed to his signing of so-called confessions which said the Pueblo was in North Korea-claimed waters when it was taken. The U.S. government has denied the ship was within the 12- mile limit claimed by North Korea and after the release of the crew the Navy said it was more convinced than ever that the ship had not gone closer than 13 miles. wbwmen Get Leaves The Pueblo crewmen were given overnight leaves for the first time this weekend, beginning Friday night A Navy spoKesman said about half of the crew will be allowed such "shore leave" each night The lioerty is confined to the San Diego area. One unidentified crewman toia a Navy journalist after returning from leave, "The very first tning I did was order a pizza. That's the thing I thought about most while I wasinNorth Korea." Markets Mt.

SmalHeioe and Anthony Hep- pcr, chairman of the Upper Clyde Shipbuilders, which built the QE2, flew out to the liner Saturday. They confe rred through the night, and, at a Sunday morning news conference, Smallpeice announced the decision not to accept delivery. He said the general unreadi­ ness o? the QE2 "would not only prevent the ship carrying its full complement of passengers but would allow no chance to reach Cunard's standards." "In no circumstances are Cu* nard prepared to sail QE2 on a commercial voyage until they are satisfied that they can maintain their standards," Sir Basil declared, "The timing may be adrift, but when she's ready this will still be the most wonderful ship in the world," John WWtworth, Cunard's managing director, told newsmen he was confident his company wxud accept the QE2 aft. \ er repairs and another shaleedown cruise Jate in Janu- i CHICAGO (AP) — Five members of a suburban Orland Park family died today in a fire that destroyed their two-story frame home.

Author- ites said Mrs. Biddle had taken another daughter, Mary, 18, to a train station and returned to find the six-room residence in flames. Firemen reported 1 they had difficulty fighting the blaze because there were no nearby hydrants and a supply of water brought in a tank soon became exhausted. The flames leveled the residence. Mrs. Marlene Pennington, a neighbor of the Biddle's in the E b south of Chicago, said Biddle escapeij th* fire by Ing from a second floor window. Wall Street NEW YORK (AP)-The stock market ignored encouraging economic news and took a fairly sharp loss early this afternoon in moderate trading. Losses outnumbered gains by more than 500 issues on the New York Stock Exchange. The Associated Press average of 60 stocks at noon was off 1.4 at 358.1 with industrials off 3.0, rails off .2 and Utilities off .3. After a mixed opening, the market worked irregularly lower and then quickly widened its losses, with the pace of trading remaining slack. Once again, lack of supporting bids rather than heavy selling pressure accounted for the loss. The Dow Jones industrial average at noon was down 6.21 at 946.30. INA Corp. dropped 3 "4 to 46 on a block of 832,600 shares- worth about $38.3 million. The stock cut its loss to a point or so in later dealings as it dominated the most-active list by a wide margin. Other large blocks, sold at losses, were prominent features. Chadbourn-Gotham was off 1M at 14 on 112,000 shares, putting it in the No. 2 spot for activity. It pared a fraction from the loss. High-prices IBM dropped 9 to 310 on 49,600 shares. Later it clipped a couple of points from the loss. Esquire fell 1 4 to 29% on 33,200 shares. Jim Walter lost 2 at 104 Vi on 49,000 shares. International Nickel, which raised the price of nickel, advanced about IV2 in active trading. Du Pont gained a fraction. The chemical giant increased the price of polyethylene packaging. Active 1-point losers Included Chrysler, Pennzoil and A.J. Industries. American Telephone, Woolworth, Alcoa and American Smelting also lost a point or so. Prices were irregularly lower on the American Stock Exchange. MARIBEL, Wis. (AP)— Three persons died Saturday night when their snowmobile was struck by a Chicago and North Western passenger train in Manitowoc County. Killed were Carl Rabenhorst, 30, and Maureen Rich, 29, both of rural Maribel, and! John Touhey of Maribel. Manitowoc County authorities said the snowmobile, driven by Rabenhorst, was traveling on a street in the village of Maribel when it was struck by the train. The three died instantly of head injuries. ASTRONAUTS REPORTING ON FLIGHT (Continued From Page One) ination. Twelve pictures taken by the Apollo 8 crew en route and around the moon—part of the scientific treasure they gathered in their six-day flight- were released Sunday by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. World Color Photos Two of the color pictures of the earth were taken as the spacecraft was in orbit or near the moon. They show the earth as a glowing sapphire half-disc with wisps of clouds streaking the deep blue. One view, taken as the spacecraft was en route to the moon, shows continents on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. The west bulge of Africa shows as a brown patch surrounded oy clouds. The east coast of South America is shrouded with clouds. The edge of darkness stands out as sunset moves across Africa. Another picture shows most of the southern United States, with the Florida Peninsula standing out as if on a global map. A huge swirl of clouds covers the North Atlantic and beyond is the curve of the earth. Shallow waters in the Carribean stand out as a greenish blue while the deeper waters are shades of tan or black. A picture of the earth taken from lunar orbit shows it rising over the moon as the moon appears to rise to men on earth. It is a brilliant blue, with patches of brown that are whole continents. The background is velvet black and the dark side of the earth cannot be seen. The picture has the pocked and rugged surface of the moon in the foreground. Moon "Dirty Beach" Color pictures of the moon have greenish or tan tint, but the astronauts said this color was not true. Instead, they said, the moon is more the color of "dirty beach sand." The pictures clearly show craters, rilles .bluffs and ridges on the moon 's bleak surface. Many of the craters appear as fresh and distinct indentations. Others appear eroded. Rilles on the lifeless moon's surface closely resemble trails animals leave through deep snow on earth. The photographs show that the more direct the sunlight shines on the moon's surface, the more harsh and hard are its features. Pictures taken with the sun at low angles give the ssurface a soft, whipped cream appearance. New Craters Shown One view released includes features never before seen by man—craters on the far side of the moon. The picture apparently was taken when the sun angle was low. Shadows darken half a 250-mile crater, while the direct light on the opposite crater wall washes out detail. NASA scientists will use the thousands of photographs taken by the crew to precisely map parts of the moon. Officials said the pictures also will help scientists plan man's next major lunar adventures- landing and ex-1 ploration. The Apollo 8 crew shot thr> pictures with two Hasselblad Electric cameras, using both 80mm and 250mm lens. They also used a 16mm Maurer motion picture camera with several frame speeds. Five automobile wrecks were reported to Mt. Vernon police over Ihe weekend. At 3:13 p.m. Sunday, police said cars driven by Dennis L. Boyer, 18, 1916 Richview and Barry Dalmasso, 17, 53 S. E. Cresent, collided on the Mug Drive Inn parking lot, 1109 Salem Road. Damage to the Boyer auto was estimated at $50 while damage to the Dalmasso vehicle was estimated in excess of $100. Connie S. Robinson, 19, 3116 Central was ticketed for careless driving after the auto which she was driving struck a parked car owned by George R. Ulrich, 308 South 15th. After the impact, the Ulrich auto struck another parked vehicle owned by the Construction Materials Co. Damage to all three vehicles was estimated in excess of $100. The accident occurred at 11:42 a.m. Saturday at 308 So. 15th street. Both drivers involved in an 11:35 a.m. accident Saturday were ticketed. Police said Gary L. Stevens, 24, 2713 Mannen was ticketed for driving without a drivers license, while George Englemann, 55, 19 Sunset Drive, was ticketed for leaving a curb without due caution. Cars driven by the two collided in the 1300 block of Broadway. Damage to the Stevens auto was estimated in excess of $100, while damage to the Engleman car was estimated at $75. Larry Jackson, 16, 1109 Lamar, was ticketed for having faulty brakes after the auto which he was driving collided with another auto driven by Wilma H. Garrison, 61, 1507 Cherry. The accident occurred at 1:01 p.m. Saturday in the 1000 block of Newby. The Garrison vehicle received approximately $75 damage, while damage to the Jackson auto was estimated in excess of $100. At $3:35 p.m. Saturday, police said cars driven by Elizabeth W. Prior, 26, 2003 College and Robert D. Payne, 21, R. R. 5, Mt. Vernon, collided at the corner of 10th and Jordan streets.

Shultz. $800,000 Brink's Car Hijacking BOSTON (AP) — The FBI examined a key and police visited underworld hangouts today for a clue in the hijacking of some $800,000 from a Brink's armored car Saturday four blocks from the scene of the $1.2 million Brinks robbery in 1950. Two men used a key to open the door of the parked truck, surprising a guard, Richard E. Haines, 43, of Tewksbury, who was alone in the vehicle while his two teammates took a coffee break. Police said the robbers could not have entered the truck if inside bolts on the truck doors had been latched. None were in place, investigators said. A key was found later at the scene of the robbery. Company officials said it was not issued by Brinks. Felix A Savage Jr., manager of Brink's Boston office, said "as near as I can ascertain the total (taken) will be in the area of $800,000. An audit was started Sunday to determine how much of the loot was in cash. The robbery was the 13th of a money express truck in eastern Massachusetts since 1950. Haines said the robbers, who wore ski masks and gloves, handcuffed Haines' wrists and manacled him in the back of the truck, drove several blocks to a parking lot near the Registry of Motor Vehicles, transferred the money into a vehicle driven by a third man and fled. He was disarmed, but police said they found his gun and those belonging to the other guards in the truck. Haines told police he worked his way out of the handcuffs and walked to a nearby police station and reported the hijacking. William B.

Five Teens Die; Tried To Light Gasoline Stove WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — Five teen-agers burned to death and five were injured Sunday night in a fire that swept a homemade cabin in an isolated area of the Indian Hill section, police said'.
