Although Doug has never seen his father, he is very much aware of him as a person. He knew when the war was over his dad was coming home, because his mother told him she had been officially informed Maj. Peterson's name was on the list. "Mom, you forgot something," Dougie told her that day in January. "You forgot to tell me what day." So this week, expecting a call of her husband's release, Mrs. Peterson told Dougie she would hang an American flag In front of their home the day she received news of his dad's release. And when Dougie came home from school last Thursday, flags were flying at almost every house in his neighborhood. Planes airline companies. The DC9, on a flight from Palma de Majorca off the Mediterranean coast of Spain to London, and the Coronado, which was flying from Madrid to London, were apparently going in the same direction, but police and airline authorities said they could offer no explanation for how they crashed. The collision took place high above the little farming village of La planche sur Mer, 18.5 miles south of Nantes. Villagers tending their fields for spring sowing said they heard a deafening explosion in the sky. Soon the area was strewn with debris from the ill-fated DC9, police said. Mutilated bodies of the passengers and crew were taken to the La planche Townhall for identification. The fields around were strewn with the dead and, pieces of metal, clothes, shoes and luggage, police said. Deaths And Funerals Thiefs Take Tires, Radio Equipment Panama City police are investigating the weekend theft of a citizen's band radio and $150 worth of tires taken from two different locations, according to police reports. Police said Capt. Flynn Brown of Cook's Fish Company, 223 E. Beach Drive, told them when he returned to work Monday after being out sick for a week, he discovered his two-way radio stolen from his fishing vessel, the Rainbow. Brown said the boat had been docked because of needed engine repairs, and the radio, a power supply, and microphone valued at $250, were probably taken during the weekend. Police said Lawrence Miller, manager of Cook-Whithead Ford Truck Lot, 730 W. 15th St., told them someone removed, three new tires valued at $150 from a 1973 van parked inside the lot. Reports show the truck was raised from the rear with jacks found by police at the scone. Police said the tire rims were also taken. Police reports show no suspects in either case were apprehended as of Monday night. MR. ARTHUR E. NELSOIV Mr. Arthur E. Nelson, 80, ot 812 Moore Circle, died Sunday in a local nursing center.

(UPI) — Leaders of the Movement, responding to a government offer that would let them leave this hamlet they seized six days ago, today declined. They presented a counterproposal insisting on a conference, or assurance of one, with a White House or Department of Interior official. Ramon Robideaux, AIM attorney and one of those who conferred with Department of Justice spokesmen in a teepee amidst a snowstorm around this little village, suggested— but did not demand—that Henry Kissinger, White House special representative, might be one of the conferees. Robideaux said if Kissinger can go to North Vietnam, he could visit the Indians. There had been one report of shooting during the night, but there was no other indication of violence. However, Indians who seized Wounded Knee to enforce their demands for a general inquiry into the U.S. government's relations with American Indians, seemed unusually tense. It was also learned that the government had moved 'ip more weapons carriers into the Oglala Sioux reservation area. Previously, it had stationed two at roadblocks north and south of the town. The Indians counterproposal included a number of points beside the request for Interior Department and- or W h it e House intervention. These included requests for medical personnel to be sent into Wounded Knee, restoration of its telephone service; that DOJ agents make no attempt to enter the village, and that U.S. marshals or some "neutral" group be assigned to guard the AIM membership from the police force of. Oglala Sioux Tribal President Dick Wilson. The AIM leadership has clashed repeatedly with Wilson and observers believe its resentment over his direction of the tribal council was one of the sparks which touched off the occupation. The AIM leadership, which has clashed repeatedly with Oglala Sioux Tribal President Dick Wilson, demanded—among its proposed government concessions—that U.S. marshals or some "neutral" group be assigned to guard AIM members from Wilson's polios force.

NEW YORK (UPI) — An off- duty policeman, brother of a State Assemblyman, was mistakenly shot to death early Monday by two other policemen as he chased a holdupman along Manhattan's Upper West Side. The dead policeman, Irving Wright, 34, was a veteran ot eight years on the force and the brother of Brooklyn Democratic Assemblyman Samuel D. Wright. Wright is the first policeman to die this year by accidental police fire. Wright was accidentally killed, police said, by Patrolmen Michael McShane, 27, and John Sutter, 40. Police called the killing of the policeman a "tragic error," and said no charges were being brought against the two patrolmen. The suspect with whom he had engaged in a g'unbattle was identified by police as Charles Small, believed to be AWOL from the Army. He later was captured and arrested. The incident began shortly before 3 a.m. when a gunman entered a grocery near Columbia University and announced a holdup. Wright, who was moonlighting in the all- night store as a clerk, called police, grabbed his service pistol and chased the bandit. Damage $100. was estimated at Parker Council To Meet Tonight Parker City Council will meet at 7:30 tonight in the Parker City Hall. Topping the agenda will be bid opening for a new police car, officials said.
