Witnesses saw a fireball rise from a point in the Caribbean four miles northwest of the airport. Air France said the plane was Flight 212, which originated in Santiago, Chile, and was headed for Paris with stops in Lima, Peru; Guayaquil, Ecuador; Bogota, Colombia; Caracas, Pointe-a-Pitre, Guadaloupe, and Lisbon. The fire department at nearby La Guaira said today that 23 bodies had been recovered from the Boeing 707 jet. Officials in Stockholm con firmed that two of the victims were Folke Claeson, multimil lionaire Swedish businessman and founder of the annual Stockholm international fair, and his wife. The search area was in wa ters 100 to 150 feet deep. Divers were to go down today to seek clues to the cause of the crash. A Venezuelan Navy destroyer "led the search for bodies among the floating wreckage, which in eluded a few inflated life rafts and seat cushions. The main part of the fuselage sank. Capt. Jose Cabezas of the Venezuelan domestic airline Aeropostal Venezolana said his plane was 2000 feet above the Air France jet. "I saw the ex plosion that took place as the plane hit the sea," he said It was the second crash of a jetliner near Maiquetia in less than a year. On Dec. 12, 1968 a Pan American World Airways jet crashed into the sea as it approached the airport, killing all 50 persons aboard. 2 Of 3 Freed By N.

Federal Aid Urged For Private Schools WASHINGTON, Dec. 4 (AP) A proposal that the Federal Government support nonprofit private schools at the average rate of $100 a pupil was supported yesterday by spokesmen for Roman Catholic and Jewish schools. Msgr. James C. Donohue and Rabbi Morris Sherer said that the aid should be on a sliding scale based on the ability of parents of the pupils to support their schools. It could range from $80 to $250, Msgr. Donohue said. Msgr. Donohue is director of the division of elementary and secondary education of the United States Catholic Conference. Rabbi Sherer, New York City, is executive president of Aqudath Israel of America. Tenants At Vaughn To Pay Back Rents Tenants at the Vaughn housing development who had participated in the nine-month public housing rent strike are expected to pay at least part of their back rents today. About $30,000 in withheld rents will be returned to Vaughn strikers, said the Rev. Buck Jones, who had been holding the money. He returned $35,000 to strikers at the adjoining rarr Square development yesterday. Most of it was paid immediately to the Housing Authority. The $65,000 is p a r t of the $125,000 withheld at the two developments. An additional $50,000 is tied up in court and the rest belonged to tenants who moved before the strike ended in October, the Rev. Mr. Jones said. An a u d 1 1 of the funds he held was completed last week. ft w Xi9 Beasley, doll!
