(AP) Rescuers worked in the glare of ftood lights early today, preparing to dig into a cave-riddled bluff in search of three boys missing since late Wednesday afternoon and feared trapped in a labyrinth of passages at Hannibal. The disappearance of the youths brought to mind Hannibal's Mark Twain who wrote of the adventures of Huck Finn but were unable to work in the narrow confines. Bob Harrison, commander of the Mark Twain Emergency Squad, said there was a slide in a cave passage about 20 feet to the right of the entrance that blocked rescue teams from entering a section of the cave running along the face of the bluff. Mayor Harry Musgrove asked for a National Guard company to begin a search at dawn in an area east of the cave. Musgrove acted in response to a request from the Hoag family, which has been unanimous in feeling that the boys are not in Mur- phy's Cave, but perhaps in other caves uncovered by construction work. About 400 yards to the east Yale President Hits Deferments STANFORD, Calif. (UPI) Yale university President King- m a n Brewster J r . s a y s student draft deferments should be abolished-and he branded as "poppycock" fears that such action would reduce the number of college students. Brewster, a member of the President's Commission on Selective Service, said the G.I. Bill showed that two years of non-academic life before college enhanced motivation for higher educations. wo new cave entrances were opened by earth moving equipment, one was filled in, but the other is open. The Hoags -- mother, father, seven brothers and four sisters -- were unwilling to stand-by while others search for the boy and organized their own search party. They combed the hills Thursday night.

Civil Defense workers, cave rescue teams from Missouri, Illinois and Washington, D.C., and Missouri National Guardsmen joined forces in the search for the three boys, Edwin Dowell, 14, and Joel (Joey) Hoag, 13, and Bill Hoag, 11, brothers. Unsuccessful in 30 hours of searching through a maze of caves and passages, the rescuers made ready to dig into a steep hillside hoping to break through into an area that has been inaccessible because of a cave-in. The Hoag brothers and the Dowell boy were last seen about 4:30 p.m Wednesday, carrying a shovel and a flashlight, as they entered a cave recently uncovered by construction workers carving out a bed for a new highway.. Individuals and teams of experienced cave explorers spent all Wednesdc\y night and Thursday squirming through narrow passages underlying the area, but found no trace of the boys.
