r IR IT MADAME GENERAL-Secretary of the Air Force Robert Seaman (left), and Lt. Gen. R. J. Dixon, deputy chief of staff for personnel, pin the stars of a brigadier general on the uniform of Jeanne M. Holm 2nd Bribe Figure Quits in Jackson JACKSON TOWNSHIP -Municipal officials are considering today candidates to replace Sam Crist, who quit yesterday as chairman of the Planning Board, and Clarence Sprinkle, who resigned Thursday as a member of the municipal Utilities Authority. Crist's resignation, which was handed to Township Clerk John C. Kiebler less than a half-hour before municipal offices closed for the weekend, eliminated the need for Ocean County Prosecutor Martin B. Anton to seek a court order ousting him for the nonsalaried post. Assistant Prosecutor Thomas F. Kelaher said yes-terdzy he had planned to apply for the court order yesterday, but delayed action when Crist's lawyer, AlanD. Kirby, told him his client was writing a letter of resignation. Mr. Anton had said he would seek a court order after refusing to answer Mr. Kirby's earlier charge that he was "playing for headlines" in demanding the resignations of the two officials. Crist pleaded guilty last month to accepting a bribe. Sprinkle, a former mayor here,' entered guilty pleas Feb. 28 to charges of bribery conspiracy and official misconduct. Both men face additional charges in connection with bribery cases. Mr. Anton said he asked the resignation of both men under the same law which was used last week to force the ouster of seven Jersey City and Hudson County officials, including Jersey City Mayor Thomas J. Whelan, who was convicted in connection with Electronics Expert Probes Loch Ness DRUMNAROCIIIT, Scotland (?) Isaac Blonder from Middletown Township, N.J., scanned the sun-dappled waves of Loch Ness yesterday to weigh up his monster problem. Using special electronic equipment and listening devices, he hopes to track down Scotland's most elusive inhabitant. The Loch Ness monster, no less. Blonder is convinced there Is not just one monster, but a family of them. He believes they are a form of prehistoric aquatic life that has been able to survive into modern times because of the favorable environment of the mountain-bounded Loch. , The Loch, or lake as it would be called if this weren't Scotland, lies in outstanding beautiful highland scenery. The waters stretch for more than 22 miles from roughly north to south, with an average breadth of a mile. It is 754 feet deep. There have been regular sightings of monsters for years, and sometimes photographs. But despite testimony by persons known for their sobriety and judgment, skeptics remain. Even Isaac Blonder, believer as he Is, wnntsrenl proof to back up his belief. He flew into Prrstwick Air-pott Thursday with his wife, Lois, 39. son Greg IB, a student at Middletown High School, son Bradley 14, who has lust completed his term At Middletown Junior High School, and daughter Terry, 3 yesterday at '.

Mr. Kirby said yesctrday any attempt to get a court order to oust Crist was "completely unnecessary and a waste of everyone's time." "From the time Mr. Crist pleaded guilty all that was needed to secure his resignation was a phone call to me or him from an appropriate authority and his resignation would be forthcoming." Mr. Kirby said. "Unfortunately, neither Mr. Crist nor myself was ever contacted by anyone, but, instead, the prosecutor chose to publicly demand his resignation through the' newspapers. The first time Mr. Crist and I were aware that his resignation was demanded was by reading about it in the Asbury Park Press." Mr. Anton said Monday he had asked Mr. Kelaher to contact lawyers for Crist and Sprinkle and ask them to tell their clients to resign. Mr. Kelaher said he called Sprinkle's lawyer, but was unable to reach Mr. Kirby by telephone, He said yesterday he has learned Mr. Kirby had left his office before he tried to telephone him because his wife had been involved in an auto accident. Crist pleaded guilty to accepting a $1,500 bribe to assure relaxation of age requirements for tenants in a senior citizens apartment project. Sprinkle admitted conspiring to accept a $35,000 bribe in return for approval of plans for a sanitary landfill, and official misconduct by accepting a $4,500 bribe for approval of a proposed mobile home park. 12, still at the Junior High. "They're all believers in the monster," said Mrs. Blonder. "And so am I." They reside at 1 Clay Court, Locust, Middletown Township. Mrs. Blonder was sketching o u t s i d e the Drumnadrochit Hotel where they are staying, while her husband and young Greg were studying the lie of the loch. Bradley was busy on a little orthodox fishing, with a rod and line and a confident optimism. "My husband hopes to record the monster on his sound equipment," Mrs. Blonder explained. "He will try to get it to respond to its own voice." This will not be the first time that electronics have been used to try to solve the mystery of the monster, and indeed it is not the first time that Blonder has been involved in such an attempt. lie was among a party from the Academy of Applied Science of Belmont, Mass., which detected something officially stated to be "many, many times larger than the largest' characteristic fish echoes detected in the loch." Blonder is chairman of the board of Blonder-Tongue Laboratories, Madison Township, N.J. British scientists who spent six weeks surveying the loch toward the end of last year reported to the British Zoological Society that they had seen largo animals unidentified by man at various times in the water. The Loch Ness phenomena Investigation bureau has maintained special lookout points over the loch for the past nine years. Blonder's reconnaissance today was mndo wllh tho bureau's top official, Tim Hinsdale, & the Pentagon. Gen. Holm is . .i i . ii At- Shut Down, Stationery Firm Told NEWARK lT) - An East Orange stationery firm has been given a court order to cease operations following a state complaint that the firm was fradulently soliciting telephone orders. Acting at the request of the Division of Consumer Protection, Superior Court Judge Samuel Allcorn Jr. yesterday ordered the revocation of the charter of the Buy Rite Corp., fined the firm $5,000, ordered it to pay $500 for the consumer protection agency's investigate costs and to repay all customers contacted fraudulently. Charles J. Irwin, director of the consumer agency, said it was his office under a law signed June 29 by Gov. William T. Cahill that allows the agency to recommend charter revocation and permits fines more than 20 times greater than in the past. According to the complaint, Buy Rite would hire persons to make telephone calls. The callers would give prospective buyers what were described as "hardship stories," tell them they had to get rid of stationery, and offer it at what the caller described as "reduced rates." The complaint said the callers woud not say what firm they reprcsenled, nor were they allowed to give the prospective buvcr a return phone number. The division found the firm employed "fraud, deception, misrepresentation and concealment of material facts in making telephone sales soliciation." Under the terms of All-corn's order, the company's two principals Andrew Gonbor and George E. Ball arc prohibited from beginning any enterprises in New Jersey within the next six months without permission from the state attorney general and the consumer protection division. svpr1se From Page 1 aro more serious than his international ones." Other countries in Asia keep asking what is happening in America, she said. "They can't understand a country with our wealth and strength beginning to decay." In Tokyo yesterday, Japanese Prime Minister Eisaku Sato welcomed President Nixon's planned visit to Peking, but some conservative politicians expressed concern that improved relations between the United States and Communist China might come at the expense of Japan. In a policy speech to the Parliament, Sato said Nixon's visit "will contribute to the easing of world tensions, especially in Asia, and is to be welcomed. "Recently exchanges between Japan and China have also shown signs of becoming more active. It is strongly hoped that in the future these will develop into intergovernmental talks," he said. The 70-year-old prime minister said the China issue is one of the biggest problems facing Japan's diplomacy In the 1970s. "The government intends to improve the relations between our two countries with care, based on the understanding that tho altitude of the People's Republic of China will have great influence on the rasing of tensions in the Far East." Salo also emphasized that "it Is most Important for our country to maintain and to promote friendly and amicable relations" with South Korea and Nationalist China. AIRPORT From Page I the airport before Arthur M. Hurst took it over in 1968) died after he had worked hard at the airport because he was interested in aviation, lie didn't even care that much about making a profit." "The Press always had stories about our accidents, most of which involved private planes and had nothing to do with the airport," he said. "If they ever sat down and reviewed statistics as to the number of accidents we had as compared to the ;iumbcr of flights leaving the airport, they'd see we've had a pretty good record in the last 10 years." Most of the private planes have been relocated at Monmouth County Airport, Asbury Air Park, or Linden. Garden State Airlines, the charter service which operated out of Red Bank Airport has moved to the Asbury Air Park, Neptune. About 13 or 14 airplanes had been located at Red Bank before service was discontinued around March. Joseph Sidoti, president of Micro-Precision Products Inc., Roselle, and a resident of Middletown Township, moved his airplane to Linden Airport Tuesday. Mr. Sidoti, also nostalgic over the closing of the airport, had attempted to organize a group of persons interested in saving the airport. However, he reported last night that he had met with about 10 interested persons and Bruce Falk, president of Garden State Airlines Inc. on Monday, and an agreement could not be reached. Earlier, Garden State Airlines had offered Mr. Horst, president of Reading Aviation, the corporation which owns the airport, a check for $425.-000 for the airport. However, Mr. Horst said he would accept nothing under $475,000. The 37-acre airport has been assessed at $423,000. The closing of the Red Bank Airport will mark the end of a long, interesting history. It was founded in 1924 by John F. Casey in Red Bank. It had its nucleus on 12 acres and Mr. Casey was president, chief pilot, relief pilot, mechanic, and occasionally treasurer of the John F. Casey Flying Service. His equipment consisted of a secondhand Army training plane bought from the government after World War I. The aircraft was used only during weekends and would stand most of the time staked to the earth beneath trees at the edge of the field. In 1931', the airport was hailed as one of the best fields in the East. It was known for its series of races held in July 1929, which continued for four days and attracted many spectators and prominent fliers. Among the prominent fliers who have flown from the Red Bank Airport were Jimmy Doolittle, who was known for his speed records; Clarence Chamberlin, who flew to Germany for what was then the non-stop distance record, and Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly over the ocean solo. In 1938, Walter Laudensla-ger purchased the airport. It was alloted a federal grant of $557,000 for improvements and was moved here for defense purposes in the early 1940s. The large hanger of the airport was badly damaged in a $150,000 fire which destroyed 25 planes in 1949. The first air taxi flight between Red Bank Airport and New York was in 1951. Van Winkle Todd, an executive, was the first passenger. James Loeb, a former Navy torpedo bomber pilot, bought the airport in 1962 when business was soaring. Under Mr. Loeb's management, however, the airport became the subject of a great deal of controversy as there were plane-car crashes on Shrewsbury and Hancc avenues and a number of plane crashes. Last year Mr. Loeb himself was killed in a plane crash in Elizabeth. Mr. Horst bought the airport in 1968. It has been advertised for sale for the last four months because, Mr. Horst said, it is not a profitable operation. Mr. Horst has said he has four parties interested in purchasing the airport. Three, he said, are real estate corporations, and the other is an airport. RED From Page 1 "difficult to establish peace in this part of the world. It's hard to forget this nation of 700 million people." Despite tho official silence from Moscow, diplomats speculate that the Soviet Union wns not at all pleased with a renewal of relations between tho United States and China, with whom Russia has been embroiled in a bitter ideological dspute for some years. Most western nations grided the Nixon announcement warmly including those in the North Atlantic Trenty Organization. NO PARKING PROBLEM-Sea gulls in Tampa Bay share a single piling in what appears to be the easiest way, particularly for the bird on top. (AP) New Network Set By Civil Defense WASHINGTON W - Civil Defense, the agency that brought you Conelrad and EBS, will soon offer DIDS-a new nationwide network to alert the public to an impending nuclear attack or natural disaster. Civil Defense Director John E. Davis announced yesterday award of a $2.7 million contract to Westinghouse Electric Corp. to begin work on the STRIKE From Page 1 about 105 customers. The FBI could be called in to investigate if the vandalism affects any emergency lines, the spokesman said. Bell Telephone has offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone damaging company property. Yesterday, the New Jersey Bell Telephone Co. asked a state Supreme Court judge to enjoin from picketing one of two unions on strike against the company, charging the union is responsible for violence and coercion of non-striking employes. Bell lawyers asked Judge Samuel Alcorn Jr. in Newark to issue the injunction against Local 827 of the Telephone Workers of America, alleging that the first three days of the walkout were marked by acts of vandalism and sabotage across the state. Judge Alcorn recessed the hearing until 9 a.m. today, when he will hear arguments from both sides. The company suit does not mention the other union, the Communication Workers of America, which also walked out Wednesday. Earlier yesterday the company warned that unless acts of alleged sabotage by the strikers stopped, bargaining sessions would be hampered. "Severe disciplinary action will be taken where the circumstances warrant," a Bell spokesman declared. "We will not tolerate actions which disrupt service to customers." A spokesman for the Telephone Workers Union countered however that charges of sabotage by the company 24 incidents in all were false. The union also said supervisory personnel were attacking its pickets and not vice versa as the company had said. ' The strike entered its fourth day today. Police Probing Theft of Mings POINT PLEASANT BEACH Police are continuing today to investigate the theft of rings valued at $1,219 from a local dealer in school jewelry. Police Cnpt. James M. Ferguson said Daniel Traverso told him yesterday the rings were stolen from the office of Harry Walter Co., Arnold and Richmond Aves., sometime Thursday night. Mr.Traverso owns the business. Cnpt. Ferguson said the rings bore the insignia of high schools in a number of communities throughout the state. Several signet type rings also were taken. Most of the rings were gold. new system, which he described as being faster and more reliable than the existing warning network. Davis said DIDS Decision Information Distribution System involves placing special radio receivers in the offices of law enforcement agencies, firehouses and various state and local agencies which would, in turn, notify the public of an emergency. In the event of disaster, the warning control officer at the North American Air Defense Command NORAD headquarters at Cheyenne Mountain, Colo., would automatically activate 11 low-frequency radio transmitters around the country. Within 30 seconds the transmitters would flash a warning message to the radio receivers. The receivers would automatically activate air raid sirens. Robert B. Martin, DIDS project manager, said the entire system will cost $49 million and be completed by 1977. "The complete DIDS system, plus a possible later tie-in with TV sets in American homes, could save many additional millions of lives in case of nuclear attack," Davis said. The system will consist of 30,000 radio receivers, including 10,000 for radio and television stations. But Civil Defense officials said details would have to be worked out with the Federal Communications Commission before any decision could be made to tie broadcasting stations directly into the warning system. Martin explained DIDS will be completely automatic and will parallel the present Emergency Broadcast System (EBS). The effectiveness of EBS has been in question following the sending of a false alert message last February. Most broadcast stations ignored the warning without knowing whether it was true.

The changes call for longer crew runs and eliminating special pay for such tasks as using two-way radios and making train hookups. Rail management retaliated against the strike by imposing new work rules on lines still running. Luna said the new rules "wipe out over a hundred years of collective bargaining benefits." One line, the Norfolk and Western, laid off many of its firemen under the new rules. Crews on other lines were riding further distances for less pay.

MILLS From Page 1 board, both of which the Nixon administration has shunned up to now, although Mills said after the talk he had no idea what form the incomes policy should take. Nixon has moved a step closer to a full-scale "incomes policy" with imposition of flexible machinery in the construction industry to moderate wage and price boosts. But administration officials say construction is a special case. "I think the adoption of an appropriate incomes policy is one of the key moves which should be made preparatory to turning the economy around." Mills said. It is the same argument used by Arthur F. Burns, chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, and many private economists. They believe the standard methods of controlling inflation, tight money and balanced budgets, won't work well enough in today's marketplace. AUGUST 1 DR.
