James Ilyd, said he had no idea whether the pilot or equipment was at fault. J ill " ' vA UK -;Vnn Mm S ? i.'r -K , t Nil SANTA ANA, Calif; AP Groping through thick fog. a commuter airplane stuck a light standard and crashed onto a busy freeway Saturday night, killing ali nine aboard but narrowly missing motorists. The flaming wreckage of the 19-passenger turboprop bounded across the Newport Freeway at the end of an extremely foggy week. A second or two sooner or later the death toll would have been higher. "Incredible that it missed all those cars," observed Santa Ana police Sgt. James Dillon. The Cable Commuter Airlines craft hit a light standard at the Santa Ana Fire Department training station on the west side of the freeway, plunged to the embankment burst into flames and bounded across to the east embankment, leaving a trail of burning debris. "I heard a shrieking of metal, then saw sparks and an Des Moines. Iowa: Murray Holland. 42, Costa Mesa. Calif.; Lawrence L. Van Mouriek Jr., 38. and his wife. Theresa. 37, both of Laguna Beach.

"The a wing came off and the plane began to cartwheel." Police said five cars narrowly evaded the plane's fiery path. "A fog bank had just rolled in across the freeway," said one of the motorists, Randy Robertson, 28. of Hungtington Beach, Calif. "Suddenly I saw the plane flying very low, almost as it it was gliding. Then it hit the light standard, crashed to the freeway and burst in flames." The dead included the pilot. Capt. Omer DuBois, 47. of Garden Grove, Calif., and copilot. Thomas Walker, 29, of Long Beach, Calif. The seven passengers board were identified Sunday by the Los Angeles coroner's office as Army Pfc.

ALL !' v v.' 7 -'" ' I Fowler Praises De Gaulle WASHINGTON 1AP1 - Se-cretary of the Treasury- Henry H. Fowler said Sunday "I heartily approve and indeed applaud" French President Charles De Gaulle's decision not to devalue the Franc. Furthermore. Fowler said, the decision came as no surprise to him and he does not think it would have any effect on the value of the U.S. dollar. Fowler returned Saturday from Bonn where he attended a meeting of the so-called "Group of Ten" western financial powers. He conferred late Saturday with President Johnson after De Gaulle announced the French decision. Fow ler said he expected one of two decisions to be made by De Gaulle: "Kither he would hold it i the franc i or make a very minor change in parity." Fowler said even had there been a change in value of the franc, it probably would have been so small that it would not "trigger other devaluations." Despite immense concern the past week about French economic troubles. Fowler said he didn't think there is any "disequilibrium in the French economic situation." He said he thinks the "principal cause of the situation recently in France was speculative outflow." Fowler praised German measures taken to confront the economic crisis even though they did not increase the value of the mark as the French reportedly sought. Fowler noted that Germany did reduce an export tax rebate to exporters and reduced taxes on imports significantly in spite of the fact that this was politically unpopular in Germany. The treasury secretary said he does not favor any major changes in the international monetary system at this time. "I believe such a thing should come through an evolutionary process." The American dollar. Fowler said, has in recent months come into a strong position because of improvement in the balance-of-payments situation. And he said he favors retention of the income surtax "unless there is an end to hostilities in Southeast Asia. The posture of maintaining fiscal strength is very important to our economy.

Clifford advanced Sunday the possibility that South Vietnamese Vice President Nguyen Cao Ky might head at least portions of future Paris peace talks. Clifford said he is optimistic that the South Vietnamese will join in the talks "and I would suspect that they could take up the lead on some matters. There are other matters in which we might take the lead." He specifically mentioned discussion of troop withdrawals, both American and North Vietnamese, as something the Americans would likely direct. The defense secretary said the Americans want peace, he is convinced the North Vietnamese do also and he believes "we can convince Saigon that it would be better for all if the war ended." Clifford then said that if Ky were picked to head the South Vietnamese delegation "I have faith in the judgment of the Vietnamese and if they think he is the best man I certainly would accept that." Asked if he thought President-elect Richard M. Nixon would retain American negotiators Averell Harriman and Cyrus Vance. Clifford said it is possible that Nixon might "want some consistency" in maintaining the talks. si CAPT.

Clifford foresees no substantial reduction in military spending even should the Vietnam warcome to an end. "We have a substantial superiority over the Russians in both conventional and nuclear capabilities . . . and would hope to maintain some superiority. We will have to continue to spend billions of dollars to maintain the superiority we have," he said. Clifford said many programs have been suspended because of the cost of the war, such as naval and aerial developments. These, he said, would doubtless be resumed at war's end, therefore military spending would see little change. Clifford said so far as can be determined the North Vietnamese have refrained from infiltrating troops and supplies across the Vietnam Demilitarized Zone. Youth Job Cost Set At $1 Billion NEW YOKK i API - It will take at least two million jobs at a cost of $1 billion to provide summer work next year for all the young persons wanting jobs, the National Committee on Employment of Youth reported Sunday. A study by the nonprofit organization covered 20 cities and found that as a result of a summer campaign in 19t8, more youths than ever before got summer jobs, more jobs were created by federal and city governments and more private employers were involved. But. the study said, there were two million youngsters who did not find work with girls and younger boys taring poorly. Also, it said, state governments were relatively inactive in this area and private employers failed to meet their quotas. The agency called lor better coordination of local efforts, better transportation from ghettos to outlying areas where jobs exist and steps to encourage the employment of more youths under 18 years of age. It also suggested pre-employment training in the schools during the school year, linked to specific jobs during the summer, to "help revitalize education for all pupils, and particularly, that group who are on the verge of dropping out." If the neighborhood youth corps were integrated with such an employment policy, the agency said, the program's jobs could be set up in a sequence of increasing responsibility and pay, with advancement taking place in one summer or from summer to summer. The report said that in New York, 51,000 youths were employed. 42.000 by the government sector. 9,000 in the private sector. Other cities covered by the survey included; Boston with about 2.900 youths employed; Chicago, with more than 40,000; Cleveland, 12,000; Detroit. 22,000; and Miami-Dade County about 4,000 youths employed.
