Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol after her convertible crashed into the back of an auto stopped for a street light. Fairfax County police said the charge on conviction carries maximum penalties of a year in jail and a $1,000 fine, and suspension of driver's license for six months. Police said, however, that such penalties are reserved for very grave cases that usually involve injuries or fleeing the scene' of the accident, circumstances that don't exist in Mrs. Kennedy's case. Police said Mrs. Kennedy was administered a breathalyzer test, but they would not disclose the results. The charge, of driving under the influence is the only charge in the state of Virginia if alcohol or drugs are found above a certain level. Mrs. Kennedy was alone in her car driving southbound on Route 123 at about 1:45 p.m. EDt Wednesday when her auto struck another southbound vehicle at an intersection. The other vehicle, driven by Edward F. McGrath, 49, of nearby Vienna, Va., was pushed into the car ahead driven by Mrs. Carol A. Finder, 25, also of Vienna. All three cars sustained damages that police said totaled around $1,400. McGrath said Mrs. Kennedy was very apologetic after the v chain-reaction collision and that she said she was "pleased there were no children in the cars at the time." McGrath, a civilian employe in the Pentagon's telecommunications center, said he detected no sign that Mrs. Kennedy had been drinking. "if she had been drinking, it didn't appear to be in any great degree," McGrath said. Mrs. Kennedy recently has spent time in rest homes in Connecticut and California.

NOTICE In accordance with the holiday schedule observed by the Federal Reserve Banks and other Federal Agencies, THE FOLLOWING BANKS WILL BE CLOSED MONDAY OCTOBER 14th 1974 IN OBSERVANCE OF COLUMBUS DAY CITIZENS NATIONAL BANK FIRST NATIONAL BANK BANKOFBLEVINS Diplomat in good spirits SANTO DOMINGO,; DomlnU can Republic (AP) — American diplomat Barbara Hutchison was in good spirits and joking after seven leftist terrorists released her and'six other hostages in return for safe conduct out of the country. "Suddenly I became a tremendous bargain. I Went from a million to nothing," the 47- year-old American quipped to newsmen Wednesday night after the 13-day episode ended. The gunmen originally demanded $1 million ransom and the release of 37 leftist prisoners. They got nothing except a safe getaway. The terrorists, who had held the hostages since Sept. 27 in a second-floor room of the Venezuelan consulate, were flown aboard a special Dominican jet to Panama, where they proclaimed victory and said they were exhausted. As they left the Boeing 727 at Tocumen International Airport near Panama City, the gunmen, led by leftist Radhames Mendez Vargas, were met by Lt. Col. Manuel Antonio Noriega, chief intelligence officer of the Panamanian National Guard. Miss Hutchison, director of the U.S. Information Service in the Dominican Republic, said she and the other hostages were treated well during the siege and even developed "something of a friendship" with their captors. But she said there were many tense moments, the most difficult being "the waiting and then the various crises as they occur. There was a package of dynamite, and we were living with that." She said that gunmen and hostages alike often were short of water. The government intermittently allowed food and drink to be taken to those inside the consulate. Miss Hutchison told newsmen that despite her ordeal she intends to continue her tour, in the Dominican Republic that began in 1972 after a long USIS career in other parts of Latin America. "Mendez bet me $5 that I would have to leave the Dp- minican Republic because (he said) all diplomatic kidnap victims have to leave the country once they are freed," she said. "But I .was informed that I would have the option to go or stay, and I told Mendez I was staying." The hostages — who also included two, secretaries, a messenger boy, a Spanish priest and the Venezuelan consul and vice consul — were greeted by joyous friends and relatives when they emerged from the cojisulate. At the same time, the terrorists were driven to the airport to board the special jetliner. The gunmen took over the consulate after they kidnaped Miss Hutchison from outside her office about eight blocks away. .^^u^MMlj^ Light bulb sale Montoy Thieu protesters march in Saigon SAIGON, South Vietnam (AP) - Hundreds of persons demonstrating against President Nguyen Van Thieu's government marched through downtown Saigon today. And for the second time in less than two weeks, police beat up Western newsmen covering the protests. The demonstrations, the biggest against Thieu in three years, were generally free of police interference until a splinter Buddhist group continued to demonstrate in front of the National Assembly after most of the 1,000 protesters had dispersed. Uniformed policemen began to scuffle with the stick-wielding Buddhists, who were complaining that police had beaten two of their comrades earlier in the day. At least six demonstrators were hospitalized, including a Buddhist nun with a broken leg and a 40-year-old man beaten for carrying an antigovernment banner near Saigon's central market. When Western newsmen filmed and photographed the scuffles, men identified by sources close to the police as plainclothes policemen turned on them. Two newsmen — Haney Howell, Saigon bureau chief of CBS, and time Magazine's Barry Hillenbrand — were kicked and beaten. Howell, of Copperhtii, tehn., who was beaten with Associated Press photographer Neal Ulevich while covering similar demonstrations 10 days ago, was rushed by a U.S. Embassy ambulance to a hospital. Officials said he suffered deep abdominal pain, apparently from a blow in the spleen. Hillenbrand was injured less seriously. He said he was taking a photograph of police trying to wrest banners and sticks away from the demonstrators when he was slugged in the back of the head and kicked in the stomach. Government and police spokesmen were not immediately available for comment on the attacks. In the past they have claimed that police have been given strict orders not to assault journalists. The demonstration began when 150 to 200 Vietnamese journalists gathered to protest a controversial press decree which allows the government to confiscate newspapers. The protesting journalists were joined quickly by opposition politicians, students, Roman Catholics and Buddhists until the crowd swelled to almost 1,000. Lodge pays tribute to Arch Ellington Mrs. Justine Hamm of Hope received a framed certificate which was presented posthumously to her .son, Arch Moore Ellington, who died two months ago at his home in Atlanta, Tex. His wife, Abilene, still lives .there. Mr. Ellington was a great worker in and with the Boy Scouts, according to his mother. Three years ago, he was approached about accepting the Vigil Honor, the highest award bestowed upon a Scout of the Order of the Arrow. He turned it down, because he felt undeserving, Mrs. Hamm said. The certificate was printed on animal skins. Beside it in the frame, were a feather from the ceremonial headdress of a chief and a small replica of the shield used in the ceremonies. The certificate to Ellington had the following inscription: "He did not ask for thanks or recognition for those things he did for the O.A. As his brothers in the Akela Wahinapay Lodge, we feel there is no better way than this to show our appreciation. Arch Ellington would accept the Vigil and this feather as proof that his devotion to the Lodge will not be forgotten. .n,s'i .f,\iA .-j^'is -md\ "This feather, taken from the ceremonial headdress of the chieftain and used in all ceremonies of the Lodge, symbolizes a special spirit and willingness to serve. There is no higher honor we could give a worthy member of the Lodge. Signed MICHAEL YOUNG, Chief 1974. "This certifies that Arch M. Ellington is awarded the Vigil Honor. In recognition of exceptional service, personal effort, and unselfish interest in the welfare of others. He has made distinguished contributions, responsibilities in the Order of the Arrow.
