(UPI)—Officials said today a fire which ranged out of control for more than six hours and destroyed a plumbing company's one-story building may have been set by an arsonist. Police quoted witnesses near lhe scene as saying they heard two men talking in an alley at the rear of the building. They said the witnesses overheard one of the men say "Let's get out of here. It's rolling now." The blaze Sunday began in two places at the Hammond Plumbing Co., on the roof and in the basement of the struc- 1 ^ ture. fire officials said. No one was hurt, but fire officials called for all off-duty firemen and available equipment to battle the flames. They It prevented the blaze from spreadirig to a Moose Lodge and a furniture store adjacent to the destroyed building. Authorities said the two adjacent' buildings suffered only minor smoke damage. gon. The bodies of 43 Communists were counted after the noontime battle Sunday. Vietnamese forces lost 9 killed and 26 wounded. Another U.S. Army enlisted man disappeared about the same time, while crossing a river with a Vietnamese combat patrol 303 miles northeast of Saigon. In other developments: —South Viet Nam's three most powerful Buddhist leaders ended a 48-hour hunger strike against the U.S.-supported government of Premier Tran Van Huong. Their strike caused scarcely a ripple of public interest. —Reports from central Viet Nam said growing Communist terrorism there had driven some 25,000 refugees into the port city of Qui Nhon, 280 miles northeast of Saigon. Roman Catholic refugees alone numbered 15,520 by Friday afternoon, according to parish priest Father Cao Due Thuan.

She was rushed to a hospital wearing a print dress under a car coat. She wore tennis shoes and carried a small canvas bag but no identifica- • tions were found. Firemen Called On Sunday Runs Later, after returning to the U.S. Embassy, he said it was "the sort of talk that takes place between two close allies. I thoroughly enjoyed the conversation."

By RC3LRT T. LO'JGHRAN United Press International CHICAGO (UPI)—Three shop- craft unions promised today not to call a strike against the nation's railroads until after the New Year's holiday. Rail attorney Alex Elson made, the promise on behalf of the unions after U.S. District Court Judge Joseph Sam Perry issued a ift-day restraining order barring the. three unions from walking out against the nation's railroads before Christmas Eve. Elson told Perry the unions 'do not want to inconvenience holiday travelers." "Those people going home for Christinas will get home. There will be no strike during the holidays," Elson said. •Terry set bond at S1O0.C00. which the unions agreed to. lie had announced last week he would issue the injunction today. The judge asked Elson if the unions v.or.'d tell him c:::iet!y when they planned to call :. strike. "A!! I am authorized to say is that it will not he until after the first of the year," El- sop said. Perry said he intended to study the dispute thoroughly during the next 10 days. -He said he hoped to have a decision by then on whether to issue a permanent injunction against a strike. The key issue in the dispute is the refusal by the unions to. accept a wage settlement pattern approved by eight other shopcra't unions and five on- train brotherhoods' earlier this fall. A strike by the union could, cripple the railroads. The railroads contend the three balking unions—the International Association of Machinists, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and the Sheet Metal Workers Inter­ nationa! Association—are not legal bargaining agents for their members. They based this on the fact the AFL-CIO Railway Employes Department has bargained for the employes affiliated with the three unions in the past.
