(AP) boats heading into the Gulf of Mexico for a night's catch teamed for a swift and dramatic rescue of all 51 persons forced overboard as the sports fishing craft Martin Queen caught fire late Wednesday. The Marlin Queen, later wracked by an explosion, burned and sank. It was inbound through . shark-infested waters when a passenger shouted: "Smoke! Smoke!" "I couldn't imagine where it was coming from," said the vessel's skipper, Torn McNatt. "One of the deck hands opened an engine hatch and smoke billowed out, and flames. "The crew shot carbon dioxide on it but didn't make any headway. That's when I told them to issue lifejackets and radioed a 'May Day.'" * * * Forty-eight passengers and three crewmen, including McNatt, scrambled off the stern of the burning craft into the sea — some into lifeboats — late Wednesday afternoon. All were rescued within 20 minutes by shrimp boats operating in the vicinity. They got clear shortly before the blazing Marlin Queen's fuel tanks exploded. The fishing vessel, valued at more than $80,000 burned to tiie waterline, listed and sank in 60 feet of water. McNalt speculated that an electrical malfunction caused I the fire. "All the instruments and gauges were normal — maybe a battery exploded," he said. The Marlin Queen, owned by White Msrlin Enterprise, was about 6Mi miles off the coast after a five-hour fishing excursion. bach has said in Washington that he is looking into the possibility of, a connection between the Revolutionary Action Movement and racial disturbances in this country. ', Wednesday, Williams was reported in a Red China broadcast •nonitored in Tokyo as having Deen a banquet guest of the China Peace Committee and the Chinese Committee for African- Asian S9lidarity in Peking. The Citizens Committee for a Free Cuba said in Miami that besides operating fbr the Castro government, "Williams is also connected with the North Vietnamese government,, has travr eed to Hanoi, and from there will broadcast to American Negro troops in Spuft Viet Nam," urging them to lay down their arms. Discoritinued along with Williams' Havana broadcasts was : 'The Crusader," a "monthly newsletter" he edited in Cuba and distributed in the United States. In one issue, he said: "The weapons of defense employed by Afro-American freedortj fighters must consist of a poor man's arsenal. Gasoline fire bombs (Molotov cocktails), lye or acid bombs (made by injecting lye or acid in the metal end of light bulbs) can be used extensively." In a broadcast early this year, Williams said: '"Hie coming By BARRY SCHWEID WASHINGTON (AP) - By proposing an invasion of North Viet Nam and a confrontation with Communist China, South Vitt Nam Premier Nguyen Cao Ky has denwnstrated anew that he has a special talent tor offending Western sentiblUUtt. Following Ky's; advice would be an abomination, declartd Sen. Mike Manifield. the usually mild-mannered Senate Democratic leader. Administration spokesmen reacted firmly, though with CoMiderable rt- straint. "Our pwitidn of not weWng any wider war has been repeatedly made clear and remains our position," said Robert J. Closkey, State Department press officer. "We do hot 8*e)i to threaten any regime." "The President's views on not wanting a wider war are pretty well known," said Bill D. Movers, White House press secretary. Clearly, once again, Ky and official Washington were at cross purposes, though the measure of stability the slender, 35 year-old pilot has achieved in Saigon is considered a blessing here. In April 1965, two months be< fore Ky became premier, he questioned the effectiveness of air strikes against highways, railroads and bridges in the North and proposed South Viet Nam's land forces move ifito the North'."If we are just going to b*mb communications lines the Viet Cong will be able to stand up for a long time, I'm afraid," he said. "So the next step must be big, either a big escalation of the war or negotiations." Though President -JehnsOn varied the bombing pattern last June, 14 months later, to strike at oil depots in the North, Ky's call for moving South Vietnam ese forces across the 17th Paral Jel never has been followed. Earlier, in October 1964, Ky kicked off a storm by telling the London Sunday Mirror: "People ask me whft My heroes are. I have only on* Hitler. I admire Hitler because he pulled his Country together when it wa« in terrible state in he early '30s. tut the situation here it so desperate that one man would not be enough. We need four Or five Hitlers in Viet Nam." The British government inquired into the interviews and in July 1965, a month after he became prtmier, Ky's office said he had been referring to Hitler's qualities of discipline and hadn't intended to praise Hitter in general. Last February, Ky was at odds with administration policy when he called for the bombing of the North Vietnamese port Of Haiphong. In April he sent government troops into Da Nang though the U.S. Marine Corps commandant, Gen. Wallace M. Greene Jr., said the situation in the South Vietnamese city was ca|m and the demonstrations there were well-ordered and semirelir jious. In May, Ky caused consld- erable embarrassment in Washington by declaring he had no intention Of resigning following election of a constituent assembly. There are several possible explanatibrts of Ky's pronounce? mints' aM policy divergences Tom Washington. One, may lie in his comparative yOuth, na- summer is going to be violent and bloody.

Williams, 41, and weighing 240 pounds, fled to Cuba in 1961 after being indicted in his borne town, Monroe, N.C., for the kid naping of a white couple in a racial disturbance.
