First-Edition Print Of Constitution Found PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A rare, first-edition printing of the Declaration of Independence has been discovered in a Philadelphia book store. The copy was printed in straightline form by John Dunlap and dated July 4, 1776. It was authenticated as genuine by the American Philosophical Society, which also owns one of the Dunlap Prints. The Society said the copy is only the sixth known one. . The document was discovered in a. scrapbook at Leary's, a 132-year-old downtown book stoi*e which closed recently. Employes how are preparing to auction away its stock. Edward R. Poole, Leary's manager, said Thursday the scrapbook was in a sixth-floor corner—a jumbled collection of unlisted documents, papers and scrapbooks known to employes as "that corner." "I always had a hunch something valuable was in there," said Poole. "But I was thinking more in terms of plates of books -O -O- -0- Leary's published many years ago." The copy, believed worth more than $30,000, was turned over to an auctioneer, who will sell it. In 1951 a similar copy turned over to the National Park Service now is displayed at Independence Hall. Officials say it was then valued at $27,500. Fire Destroys Allendale Church ALLENDALE, HI.

Rowe, the U.S. Special Forces officer held prisoner for five years, evaded the enemy for nine days after his escape before finally being picked up by a U.S. helicopter, according to reports in this Mekong Delta town. Rowe, 30, of McAllen, Texas., was brought first to Ca Mau after his rescue. The U.S. Command has withheld details of Rowe's escape. The bare official account left the impression Rowe escaped and was picked up the same day, Dec. 31. However, U.S. advisers who talked with Rowe said • he escaped in the confusion of a B52 bombing strike Dec. 22. The bombing was part of preparations for a large Vietnamese operation in the U. Minn forest, a dank Viet Cong sanctuary centered 150 miles southwest of Saigon. His rescue came on the fringe of the forest when he saw several U.S. helicopters taking part in an assault. He ran into the paddies, waving his sliirt. Two small U.S. observation helicopters hoved near him. "At first they thought he was a Viet Cong trying to give up\" said an American major familiar with the story. "But they called the command ship (a larger craft) and it set down and took him on." At Ca Mau, Rowe—bearded, tanned and husky -despite his long ordeal—bounded from the helicopter. A young lieutenant recalled: "Boy, he was the happiest man I've ever seen." A sergeant observed: "You could tell he was a real cool one, too. Real smart."

About 270 soldiers flew the Atlantic from Forbes Air Force Base in Kansas. After landing at Rhein-Main Air Base, they headed for depots at. Kaisers- laulern, Karkslruhe, and Mannheim, where they will prepare tanks, guns, and other heavy equipment left behind when their units were deployed from Europe last spring. The main bulk of the troops will arrive at Nuernberg in a massive airlift Jan. 20-21 to maneuver about 30 miles from the Czechoslovak border. The exer- eisp, named Reforger, was originally scheduled for later this year but was moved ahead to stiffen the North Atlantic Alli­ ance after the Soviet- led invasion of Czechoslovakia last August. The maneuver takes place Jan. 29-Feb. 4. Most of the men participating in the maneuvers will return to the United States but four F4 Phantom tactical fighter squadrons flying over for a parallel Air Force exercise named Crested Cap I, will remain in Europe to complete training.

On Sunday, before Humphrey's arrival, antiwar demonstrators stoned the U.S.—Embassy and distributed leaflets saying "mass murderers unwanted" and "Humphrey go home." But the vice president received a warm reception at Oslo's airport when a party of students broke into cheers and sang in English "For he's a jolly good fellow." Several hundred spectators applauded as the vice president's party went to a limousine. Premier Per Borten and U.N. Undersecretary Ralph Punche placed the only two wreaths. Bishop Fridtjov Birkeli, who conducted the service, lauded Lie's personal qualities "which placed him both in the history of Norwav and in the history of the world."
