Frank Kelley today issued an opinion clarifying the status of present and future officers elected to county boards of 'supervisors. The opinion was asked by Secretary of State James Hare after the courts ruled apportionment of county boards of supervisors must be on a one-man, one-vote basis. T o w n s h i p supervisors a n d members of a city council or commission can run for office as county .supervisors, Kelley said. If they are elected, however, they must vacate the previous post as the two offices are incompatible, he held. Kelley also ruled that repre- senatatives of cities presently serving on county boards of supervisors can continue to serve until new county supervisors elected at the 1963 general election take office.

SOUTH HAVEN -- A South Haven man who escaped with another prisoner from Wexford county jail at Cadillac Sunday night was being sought in this area today by state police. Troopers said William Dale Chamberlain, 18, South Haven, and Jack C. Partee, 41, Fife lake, forced their way out of jail around 10:24 p.m. Sunday after hitting a turnkey over the iiead with an iron pipe and driving off in his car. The two i were believed by police to be armed with .38 :aliber revolvers stolen at the jail. Chamberlain had been lodged on a stolen car charge and Partee was waiting a psychiatric examination in the jail after being released from Southern Michigan prison on a writ. He had been sentenced for armed robbery police said. About two months ago, Partee walked away from a medical center in Traverse City where he had been for examination and was recaptured about two weeks later. Wexford C o u n t y sheriff's deputy Arnold Hoyt, on duty alone in the jail, said the two men apparently got loose in the jail and obtained an 18-inch piece of iron pipe. Hoyt said one of the two struck him over the head from behind in the jail office and ordered him to lie on the floor. Hoyt said they took his keys and fled the building. He said the two drive off in his car pai-ked in the jail lot. The car was recovered in Cadillac. Hoyt said he required six stitches to close a scalp wound. He said Chamberlain was a trusty in the jail and Partee was held under maximum security. Hoyt said it was not immediately l e a r n e d how Chamberlain freed Partee. Road blocks were set up.

'W Faculty Briefed On Treedom' President Discusses Columbia Disorders ANN ARBOR'(AP)-- Reflecting on what he called "the tragedy of Columbia," University of Michigan President Robbeh W. Fleming has urged U-M faculty members to take a stand in order to preserve the freedom of the university. In a letter sent Friday to U-M faculty members, Fleming said, "If the faculty is unwilling to take a stand, disruption will continue. If it will take a stand but also recognize that the status quo cannot be insisted upon, the unrest can, I believe, be contained in peaceful bounds." In referring to the student seizure of administration buildings at Columbia University, Fleming said only one such incident had occurred at Michigan. "That incident occurred at the height of emotion over the despicable assassination of Martin Luther King," Fleming said. "The students and some who are not students were wrong in my judgment in using the tactic which they did use. "They could have seen me or other members of the administration by a mere request. Nevertheless we tolerated that wrong for the brief period because this is an imperfect world in which emotions sometime overcome logic-" RULES REVISION Fleming said the university during the summer will be revising many of its rules and regulations with student, faculty and administrative participation in the changes. He uri reasonableness on the part oi all parties involved. "The idea that seizure and vandalism cannot be countered with academic discipline disregards the fact that they strike at the most fundamental char acteristic of the university--its freedom," Fleming said. "If universities wish to continue to govern themselves they will have to face the fact that tactics of this kind -cannot be ignored. If universities are unwilling to deal with them the power to do so will be lodged elsewhere."

Six Key Vietnamese Officials Killed SAIGON (AP) - The U.S. Command launched a full-scale investigation today into the mis-, firing of a rocket by an Amen- can helicopter gunship that killed six key South Vietnamese officials and seemed likely to place new strains on U.S.- Viet' namese relations. American officials were visibly shaken and appeared concerned about repercussions from the incident. An editorial; anti-American in tone, appeared in the Saigon Daily News, under the heading, "An Accident Too Many." As the latest wave of fighting in the capital area went into its 10th day, South Vietnamese military headquarters reported that 600 to 800 fresh Viet Cong troops had slipped into the northern suburb of Gia Dinh, 2% miles from the center of Saigon- This coincided with an allied communique stating that 1,019 Viet Cong and North Vietnamese were killed in and around the capital during the week ending last Saturday. South Vietnamese troops, who were said to have done most of the fighting, reported their own casualties as light. U.S. forces listed six Americans killed and 32 wounded:for the period. The rocket explosion Sunday also wounded four other officials, including Saigon's mayor. The Vietnamese were hit while observing operations against Viet Cong soldiers holding out in buildings in Cholera, the Chinese district in southwestern Saigon. The rocket decimated the top echelon of the Saigon city administration. Those killed were Col. Pho Quoc Chu, (he director of the port of Saigon and Vice President Nguyen Cao Ky's brother- in-law, Col. Nguyen Van Luan, the Saigon police chief, Col. Le Ngoc Tru, commander of Saigon's 5th Police Precinct, Maj; Nguyen Ngoc Xinh, chief 'Of staff of joint operations for the national police, Maj. Nguyen Bao Thuy, chief of the Saigon mayor's cabinet and brother of the former minister of revolii' tionary Development, and Lt Col. Dao Ba Phuoc, commander of the 5th Ranger Group. The wounded were Saigon''s mayor, Col. Van Van Cua; Col. Tran Van Phan, chief.bf staff of the national police director; Col- Nguyen Van Giam, deputy chief of the capital military district, and Maj. Le Ngoc To, commander of the 5th Combat Police Battalion. U.S. Ambassador Samuel D. Berger sent his "deepest regrets and condolences" to the South Vietnamese government and to the families of the officials. One officer said Gen. Creighton W. Abrams, commander of U.S. forces in Vietnam, ordered that no further American air strikes may be called in Saigon or its suburbs without his approval, but a U-S. military spokesman declined to comment on this. The U.S. Mission said one rocket from an American heli- c o p t e r malfunctioned and "there is a strong probability that the . . . rocket which fell short of its target landed in the vicinity of the officials." "Since there was firefighting involving enemy rockets in the general area of the explosion," the statement added, "it cannot absolutely be determined what happened." ' Fighting in the area about three miles west of the presi ; dential palace has been going on since Friday. South Vietnamese rangers and tanks blasted the concrete hiding places of Viet Cong snipers with their 90mm cannon, and squeezed about 30 guerrillas into a four-block area. Little firing by the guerrillas was reported this morning. A U.S. adviser to the government troops said the Viet Cong apparently were saving ammunition for a final fight- !
