TUESDAY The Lord has sworn by the pride of Jacob: "Surely I will never forget any of their deeds." — Amos 8:7. We may elevate ourselves but we should never reach so high that we would ever forget those who helped us gel there. - Will Rogers, American humorist. Knieval blames metal failure in parachute TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) Stuntman Evel Knievel says a weakness in the metal holding the parachute system in place was responsible for his rocket ride into the Snake River Canyon rather than over it. "There was a metal failure," Knievel told a news conference Sunday night less than four hours after he was lifted by helicopter from rocks at the base of the 600-foot canyon. "To lose to a beautiful river and canyon like this to me is not a real loss," said Knievel, the cuts on his right cheek and lip standing out as red lines on his tan face. The chutes began deploying even as the red, white and blue Sky-Cycle cleared the launch ramp Sunday, pulling the missile back like a yank on a shirt collar. The vehicle was halted before it.had traveled half the needed distance, and seconds later Knievel was on the canyon bottom, the bloodied survivor of yet another fall. Despite the fa.-!jre of the stunt, probably the most widely publicized in history, Knievel was assured of $6 million and stood to earn much more from proceeds of a live closed-circuit telecast and related deals. Promoters of the telecast had been predicting the total take could reach $20 million, but they said Sunday evening that it would be at least 24 hours before ticket sales were known. Asked if he would attempt the stunt again, Knievel responded, "I don't know what I'm going to do. I sat in it and gave it my best." In a late night telephone call to television station KUTV in Salt Lake City, Knievel said that "metal fatigue" shad caused bolts holding a cannis- ter containing the parachutes to sheer off when the engine fired, sending the chutes spilling out behind. The steam-powered Sky-Cycle was to have traveled 3,000 feet at 300 miles per hour, enough to carry it well beyond the opposite canyon rim, 1,600 feet away. Eighteen seconds after launch, Knievel was to have thrown the lever deploying the chutes to carry the missle earthward. Instead, the vehicle lurched upward for nine seconds and veered to the right. Then, about 1,000 feet in the air, it turned downward and began the twisting, nose-first descent that hushed the thousands of onlookers. NEW Veterans Administration bead Richard Roudebush was held captive in his office by a trio of dissident vets complaining of benefit cuts. Roudebush, a former Indiana congressman, said the trio never harmed or threatened him but they were arrested. Pushed by a brisk north wind, the cycle glanced off a canyon shelf and onto rocks about 20 feet from the Snake River, where it came to rest right side up. Knievel said that piece of luck saved his life. Even for skeptics, Knievel's attempt to hurtle himself over the canyon was spectacular, dangerous and suspenseful. And the Montana-born huckster- stun tman carried off the defeat with characteristically arrogant style. Gripping his custom-built black cane, Knievel walked along the metal fences surrounding the launch area to shake hands with his assembled admirers. "You are the living god," one group cried out to the figure in the stars-and- stripes jump suit. In his telephone call to KUTV, Knievel cautioned adventurous children: "Maybe because I made this jump, young children will realize that even with the best help in the world, maybe this is not the thing to do."

Thirteen states to hold primaries ATHENS, Greece (AP) - All 88 persons aboard a TWA jetliner that crashed Sunday in the Ionian sea are believed dead. Al least 17 of the 79 passengers and some of the nine crew members were Americans. The Boeing 707 jet was en route from Tel Aviv to tx>s Angeles with stops in Athens, Rome and New York. It plunged into a stormy sea 60 miles west of Kefallinia island 40 minutes after leaving Athens. By midnight Sunday, 12 hours after the crash, seven bodies had been recovered by the crew of a Greek freighter, the first ship to reach the scene. A telephone caller in Beirut reported that an organization called the Nationalist Youth or the Liberation of Palestine had sabotaged the plane. But the Palestine Liberation Organization, the umbrella group for the major guerrilla organizations, said the call was a hoax and a "Zionist fiction" to discredit the Palestinian cause. The Greek merchant marine ministry said an Alitalia plane reported seeing the 707 "plunging steeply into the sea with one engine on fire" shortly before noon. Search pilots flying over the site soon after said all they saw were "remnants of wreckage and bodies floating on the surface." TWA officials said 49 of the passengers aboard boarded at Tel Aviv and another 30 got on in Athens. It said 17 of those who boarded in Israel were Americans, including one infant, but the nationalities of the Athens passengers were not reported. Two of the American passengers were Frederick B. Hare of Rariton, N.J., and his wife Margaret. Hare, vice chairman of a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, had been in the Middle East on business. TWA said the members of the flight crew were Capt. Don H. Holliday, First Officer John L. Cheshire and Flight Engineer Ralph H. Bosh and that they were based at New York's Ken* nedy Airport. It said six of the cabin attendants were based ill Rome and the other in Hong Kong. The Greek civil aviation authority said the sea and air search was made more difficult by high winds and stormy seas. 2Vo-tech contracts approved LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The state Board of Education Sunday approved construction contracts for two post-secondary vocational schools — at Batesville and near DeQueen. Approval of the Batesville contract was made contingent on assurance from local officials that sewer service would be made available at no cost to the state. The site for the school is about 4,000 feet from sewer luies. A report attached to the board's agenda quoted state Sen. Bill H. Walmsley of Batesville as saying the city did not have the money for a sewer system and that the Chamber of Commerce had "strained everyone's resources" in raising $60,000 to purchase the site. The board said, however, that its policy' was that localities provided utilities to vo-tech schools. The contract for construction of the Cossatot Vo-Tech School near DeQueen was awarded to Seven K. Corp., of DeQueen for $511,750. The contingent Batesville contract went to Ben Caston Construction Co., of Heber Springs for $469,600. Bids for a new school at East Camden will have to be read- vertised because the low bidder's subcontracts were not provided in a sealed envelope. Eve! Knievel: "They thought Lindbergh was a little strange, too." By The Associated Press Voters in 13 states and the District of Columbia hold primaries Tuesday to select candidates for November's congressional and gubernatorial elections. Most of the nine incumbent governors and five senators seeking new terms expected to win easy renomination. Primaries are being held for either state or congressional posts in Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont and Wisconsin. Republican Govs. Meldrim Thomson Jr. of New Hampshire and John Vanderhoof of Colorado face the most difficult primary fights but are favored to win. Two hot Democratic battles are in New York, where Rep. Hugh L. Carey and Howard J. Samuels are bcttling to run against GOP Gov. Malcolm Wilson, and in Massachusetts, where the winner of the contest between former state Rep. Michael S. Dukakis and Atty. Gen. Robert Quinn will likely face GOP Gov. Francis W. Sargent. Of the five senators seeking new terms, only Sen. Charles McC. Mathias Jr., R-Md., has primary opposition. He is expected to defeat Dr. Ross Pierpoint, a perennial conservative candidate. Sens. Barry Goldwater, R- Aiiz., Jacob K. Javits, R-N.Y., Peter H. Dominick, cR-Colo., and Gaylord Nelson, D-Wis., are unopposed for renomina- tion. Both parties have primary fights for the seats of retiring Sens. George D. Aiken, R-Vt., Norris Cotton, R-N.H., and Edward J. Gurney, R-Fla. In gubernatorial races, Wilson, who became governor when Nelson A. Rockefeller resigned last December, is unopposed for the GOP nomination in New York. Six other state executives are expected to win easy primary victories. They are Democrats Reubin Askew of Florida, Marvin Mandel of Maryland, Thomas P. Salmon of Vermont, Wendell R. Anderson of Minnesota and Patrick J. Lucey of Wisconsin, and Republican Sargent of Massachusetts. Five Republicans and four Democrats are running to succeed retiring GOP Gov. John R. Williams in Arizona. Gubernatorial candidates already have been chosen in Connecticut and Rhode Island. In the District of Columbia, appointed Mayor Walter Washington and attorney Clifford L. Alexander are the leading candidates in the city's first mayoral election. Their Democratic primary battle is tantamount to election.
