PiltctW Blast Probed In Tennessee KINGSPORT, Tenn. (AP) Workmen poked through the rubble of a Tennessee Eastman Co. plant yesterday seeking clues to Tuesday's mysterious blast which killed 13 persons and injured more than flO others. "We haven't any idea when we'll be able to determine just what caused the explosion, if ever," said one Eastman official. The company, a Subsidiary of Eastman Kodak Corp., declined to estimate the damage. The blast leveled a large building housing the aniline processing section where dyes are made. The building functioned by remote control, making the investigative job harder. That fact held down the death toll from the Wast, felt 20 miles away. Those who were close enough to the explosion to shed some light on its cause either were killed or seriously injured. j Prorepublic Forces In Lead REPUBLIC nijy Page 13 JOHANNESBURG, South Africa (AP)—Forces for keeping South Africa under the British crown and staunchly in the commonwealth ran up a (substantial lead early today. They had trailed the nationalists in first returns from yesterday's referendum. At this point the lead was not considered decisive. The nationalists are for a republic that might not be acceptable to nonwhite members of the British-led commonwealth. With 61 constituencies reported out of a total 159, the antirepublic group had * lead of 155,125 votes. Most results were from urban areaa where the antirepublicans were expected to have wide margins. In many rural areas, where nationalists are strong, counting begins after daylight today. There were 1,80D,74S registered voters (nonwhitels could not vote) and the turnout, in balmy weath-fences, usually solidly behind the er, was believed t« be a record ranging above 90 per cent. The nationalist, prorepublic, segregationist forces of Prime Minister Hendrflr. Verwoerd rar up a lead in the firat returns. But this was overcome by a surge of antirepublic votes that quickly ran up a margin exceeding 100,000. Some nationalist sources expressed shock at the reversed trend in favor of the antirepubli- cans. However, this margin came from from only 33 out of 158 constituencies in South Africa and the neighboring mandated territory of Southwest Africa. There still are many remote rural areaa to be heard from which are counted nationalist stronghold 1 ,!. Remits in the rural constitu- nationalist government and its proposal for a republic to be divorced from the British crown, were slow coming in.
