December 22, 1976 PACK 12 tfAYS DAILY NEWS Terror Aboard Plane Ends SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) A mentally disturbed airline mechanic turned his gun over to a friend and surrendered early Wednesday after Wk. hours of therror aboard a grounded United Airlines jet in a frustrated hijacking attempt. During a nightlong siege at United's huge maintenance base at San Francisco International Airport, authorities refused the hijacker's demands for a crew, despite an appeal by Richard Funk, 38, one of the hostages who was knifed superficially several times, to "send somebody out ... I'm bleeding all over the cockpit." Palm J. Hinnant, 37, a UAL employe on sick leave for mental health, marched Funk and another hostage aboard the DCS jet at 4:20 p.m. Tuesday, waving other workers on the plane away with a Luger pistol. He reportedly was angry because he had been told his sick leave benefits expired. The hijacker demanded food, brandy, fuel, maps of the "continental United States and the East Coast" and a flight crew. He' did not otherwise indicate whefe he wanted to go. FBI marksmen and a sheriff's Special Weapons unit surrounded the aircraft, parked just outside a huge hangar at the big base, at the north end of the airport. During the hours that followed, authorities, talking to Hinnant by radio, told hirp "no way" would the plane be able to take off because the aircraft was inoperable and no pilots would volunteer to fly it. Dr. Morris Brock, a psychiatrist who had treated Hinnant, went Out to the plane and talked to him from the ground. Toward morning, Hinnant gave up his efforts to hijack the airplane and demanded only "safe passage" to his car. At about 6:30 a.m. he released Jerome Dusenberry, 42, a UAL electrician who had gone aboard to replace one of the original hostages because he could operate the plane's radio. Two friends, Clarence Hamlet, 50, whom Hinnant described as his "second father," and Lincoln Jones, another mechanic, went out to the plane in a van about 6:30 a.m. A few minutes later, Jones sent word that, "We've got the gun in our hand right now. We're coming off. We are going to have some coffee and eggs and sit down and talk." Hinnant, the divorced father of two, asked that a woman friend, Coletta Hawthorne, come out to meet him. She went out to the plane and the party got into a van and were r At Funeral President-elect Jimmy Carter, lower left.

(UPl Photo) , , Final Tribute Paid To Daley CHICAGfO (UPI) — A president-elect and a vice president of the United States led leaders of government and politics into a whitewashed Roman Catholic church Wednesday to pay final tribute at Mass for a city mayor — Richard J. Daley. Mostly hatless and some coatless, they walked briskly from long black limousines into the Nativity of Our Lord Church where Daley, dead in office at 74, lay in state. During the subfreezing day and night hours Tuesday and until 5 a.m. Wednesday, thousands of his neighbors and other had filed a few at a time into the South Side church. At 9 a.m. the temperature was 18. Silent crowds shivered outside the church while the political figures filed into the structure. taken into the hangar where FBI agents took the hijacker into custody and sent him to San Francisco General Hospital for examination. Funk was also sent to a hospital, but an FBI spokesman said his stab wounds in the arms appeared to be minor. The last words of Hinnant to the FBI before he left the plane were: "I'll be going to jail, right?" Stock Quotations (A. of 1 P.M. Hayt Tim.) Layoffs Ahead For Some Auto Workers Jimmy Carter, flying from Georgia, was an early arrival, as was Vice President Nelson A. Rockefeller, representing President Ford. Also paying tribute were Sen. George S. McGovern, D- S.D., Democratic presidential nominee in 1972 when Daley's delegation was barred from the national convention; Sen.v Edward M. Kennedy, D.- Mass., the man who Daley hoped would run for president but did not; Sen. Adlai Stevenson, D-I11., Attorney General Edward Levi, former president of the University of Chicago. The Daley family—his wife, Eleanor, their four sons and three daughters—arrived in a black limousine just before the mass began. :™COUPON™J | NEW FRESH DATED | • Kodak I I Kodacolor i • Film • C 110-12 Exp. or C 126-12 Exp.

David P. Horchem was a passenger in a car driven by Vernon L. Mudd, 25, 2714 Epworth, Apt. 3, about 11:15 p.m. when the car went out of control, skidded into the curb and rolled over, hitting a parked vehicle. Mudd told police he was east bound on 13th and was attempting a left turn onto Eisenhower when the accident occurred. Mudd and another passenger, Donald L. Jamison, 26, Countryside, were not injured. Mudd's vehicle sustained considerable damage. Police issued Mudd a traffic ticket for careless driving and DWI. From The Record County Court Dana G rover, Hays, pleaded guilty to writing insufficient fund checks; sentenced to 30- days in the Ellis County Jail and must pay court costs. District Court Pierce-Schippers Con- strifction Company, Inc., Hays, vs. Robert F. Naegele, 3004 Northridge Court, and Frontier Ford, a dissolved corporation; seeking $28,400 plus interest and cost allegedly owed promissory note. cars in October. Industry spokesmen concede even more layoffs may be necessary if small car interest does not pick up. In contrast, overtime is the rule at plants that build midsized and large models. The Ford Motor Co. is planning to pay 18,000 workers triple time to build large, models during the traditional Christmas-New Year's holiday. "The problem is that we have too much capacity for the current demand for the small models and not enough plants to build the cars the customers want," one industry analyst said. "That's a result of the 1974-75 energy crisis and recession when we shifted to small cars like mad." The one-to three-week layoffs are the most since the week of Aug. 4, 1975, when production of 1976-model cars Was beginning. The just- concluded 1976-model year marked the end of the industry's two-year slump — the longest and deepest since the great depression. While temporary layoffs are up, the longer — and more costly — indefinite layoffs are down. The four companies list 19,000 workers on long-term layoff, compared to 104,000 during that same week in August of 1975. General Motors Chairman Thomas A. Murphy, who has predicted record car and truck sales in 1977, says his firm's 12,000 long-term layoffs are the result of the small car slump. "If we could sell more Chevettes and Vegas, we would put the second shifts back at the Wilmington, Del., and Lordstown, Ohio, plants," Murphy said. "That would make a big dent in the 12,000 figure, right off the bat." Better Take Another Whiff DENVER (UPI) — If you promised her anything but gave her Chanel, you better have another whiff of that perfume. Chanel, Inc., of New York, filed suit Tuesday against four businessmen accused of counterfeiting and distributing its product. Chanel mentioned no specific damage amount in the lawsuit, filed in Denver District Court, but contended their reputation, good will and trademark had been damaged by the counterfeit sales. The company also contended it lost money because of the distribution of the fake product. v The Denver firm of Western Job Lot Distributors last year handled perfume labeled as Chanel. The Denver district attorney's office discovered last January, however, the perfume was a close substitute but not a real Chanel product. An investigation resulted in grand jury indictments against the four businessmen. Defendants named were Mortimer Gordon, president of Western Job Lot Distributors, and Jack and Joseph Marcus, owners of J. Marcus Wholesalers, in Pittsburgh. The Marcus firm was accused of manufacturing the bogus perfume. Also named was George Neal, an operator of the now defunct Columbia Merchandise Co. of Denver and J and S sales Co. of Orlando. Fla., which also allegedly distributed the product. Gordon is now on a deferred prosecution and has paid a $2,000 fine imposed on his company.

One analyst said investors appeared to be encouraged by indications the economy was picking up again and that government report revisions showed the recent economic slump was not as severe as thought initially. As a result, the Dow Jones industrial average, which gained 5.98 points Tuesday, was ahead 10.39 to 988.78 shortly before 1:15 p.m. EST.
