(AP Wirephoto) Ex-POWs to get chance to meet Berets who tried to free them Never store herbs and spices near the kitchen range. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Former U.S. prisoners of war from the Son Tay prison camp near Hanoi will have the opportunity to meet the Green Berets who tried to free them in an abortive 1970 raid, thanks to a Texas billionaire. Lex Byers, an executive of the Greater San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, said Wednesday that computer tycoon H. Ross Perot is flying the 60 Green Berets and 200 ex- POWs and their wives here for a celebration April 27-28. Byers said the former prisoners, now at various U.S. military hospitals, chose San Francisco for their meeting with the Berets, now stationed at bases around the world. The Berets -- handpicked and secretly trained for the special assignment -- made a helicopter raid in November 1970 on the prison camp 25 miles outside Hanoi, but all American servicemen had been removed from the camp. Military leaders defended the raid against congressional criticism, saying it was essential to boost prisoner morale.

W-W FARM RANCH AUCTIONS The scaffolding was erected to shore up the cathedral on Kifth Avenue against the shocks of .nearby construction. While it was up officials of the Archdiocese of New York decided to use it for the $800,000 restoration project. Workmen removed up to two inches of soot and dust, much of it attributed to the deposits of countless candles. When the project officially came to an end Wednesday, Terence Cardinal Cooke praised "the original beauty and majesty that many of us had never seen." Bill would aid college students WASHINGTON (AP) - College students would be eligible for $872 million in federal aid to help them attend school if an emergency money bill gets presidential approval. The bill, passed by Congress Wednesday, would direct President Nixon to continue the existing student aid programs instead of putting most of the' money into a new one, as he had requested. The $872 million for student aid is-the same amount Nixon requested, but the bill provides only $122 million for the new basic grant program instead of the $622 million asked. The Senate originally voted to raise the money for the new. program to $385 million, but in conference with the House the higher figure was dropped in favor of the House version. Sen. Claiborne Pell, D-R.I., who originally proposed the new program, objected strongly to the conference agreement but accepted it because of what he said was the urgent need of the colleges to know what financial aid will be available for students now applying for the fall term. Pell said the allocation of funds in the bill would "destroy much of the effectiveness of the new program" for this year. He voiced hope Congress would greatly increase the funds for it in the fiscal 1974 budget.
