(AP) - Four armed hijackers, including a father and son wanted on charges of bank robbery and murder, forced an Eastern Air Lines jet with 40 persons aboard to Cuba Sunday after killing one man and wounding another in Houston, Tex., the FBI said. Kenneth W. Whittaker, special agent in charge of the FBI in Miami, identified three of the hijackers after interviewing passengers and crew members. The fourth hijacker was not identified. The FBI said air piracy warrants were issued for Charles Andrew Tuller, Jr., 49, a former U.S. government employe, salesman and stockbroker: his son, Bryce Matthew Tuller, 19, an electrician's helper, and Wil liam Graham, 18, not further identified. Whittaker said the father- and-son team attempted to hold up Crystal Plaza Branch of the Arlington Trust Co. in Arling ton, Va., on Oct. 25. The bank manager and a policeman were killed during the attempted rob bery. Bond for all three hijackers, who were still in Cuba, was set at $1 million by Magistrate H. Lingo Platter in Houston. In ad dition, the Tullers have been charged with attempted bank robbery, unlawful flight and murder in connection with the bank holdup. Authorities said Tuller has a scar on his right forehead and suffers from a diabetic condi tion. Police in Houston re'ported finding 11 disposable syringes and three bottles of insulin near where the Eastern employe was shot to death. Tuller apparently was the leader of the four who identi fied himself as "Prof. Klink" and boasted to passengers he was a businessman who had just quit a $28,000a-year job, according to authorities. The bullet-scarred Boeing 727 jetliner rolled up to gate 46 at Miami International Airport Sunday about 2 p.m. EST wit.h five bullet holes in the viewing window of the main door. Two other shots penetrated the door and two more apparently rich ocheted back into the plane. The dead man was a gate agent for Eastern. Another Eastern employe was wounded in the arm. None of the passengers or crew was hurt during the flight. "In Houston, some of us heard and some of us saw a series of shots," said Dallas Morning News reporter Sam Kinch Jr., who was a passenger aboard the jetliner. "They sounded like fire crackers. I saw three shots fired." he said, adding that he did not see the gate agent get shot. Kinch said the "cuv who called himself Prof. Klink said he wanted to go to Cuba They ordered us to put our hands over our heads. This guy who called himself Klink came on the microphone and said that no one should move or they would be shot on sight." The plane's pilot, Capt. L.E. Hines of Atlanta, refused to give newsmen any details of the hijack and criticized the airline industry, the courts and Congress for failing to put a stop to air piracy. The three-engined aircraft, carrying 33 passengers and sev en crew members, was forced to make an intermediate stop in New Orleans for refueling before the predawn flight to Havana. Kinch described the elder hi jacker as resembling "a Prussian infantry captain." "He said he wanted to go to allowed to speak with newsmen. "We're still not sure what happened in Houston," said Eastern Information Officer Jim Ashlock in Miami. "There were no eyewitnesses to the shootings. The gate agent may have spotted a weapon or something, but we don't know." Flight 496, carrying 33 pas sengers and a crew of seven, originated in San Antonio, Tex., and was being readied in Houston for the rest of its flight to Syracuse, N.Y., when the hi jacking took place. Airline officials said it was not immediate ly known where the hijackers See HIJACKERS, Page 2 Falhcr, Son Accused Charles Andrew Tuller (right) and his son, Bryce, have been charged in the hijacking of an Eastern Airlines jet and slaying of a company employe Sunday.

The hijacked plane flew to Tripoli with the hijackers, commandos and 20 passengers and crew aboard. The hijackers had threatened to blow up the plane with the passengers and crew aboard if Germany refused to release the Arabs. The Middle East news agency said two guerrillas commandeered the plane, although earlier reports had mentioned three. After the jet picked up the commandos in Zagreb, Yugoslavia, and flew them to Tripoli, the Libyan radio said: "The liberated heroes of the Munich operation and their liberators landed safely tonight." Libya has expressed sympathy with the Palestinian terrorists. The jetliner was refueled at the Tripoli airport, and was expected to return to West Germany with all aboard except the commandos and the hijackers, the Middle East news agency reported. Reports quoted West German Ambassador Gunter Werner as saying the passengers and crew were well and probably would spend the night in Tripoli. The agency said the Arabs emerged from the plane with their faces covered by masks, and the hijackers wvre taken away in a car. The commandos were ques tioned by Libyan officials and by Abu Tarek, described as the Libyan representative of the Palestinian Liberation Organ ization. The three had been flown from West Germany on. a smaller jet and were transferred to. the hijacked plane in Zagreb. West German officials said three Arabs, identified as members of the Black September organization, seized the Lufthansa 727 jet over Turkey early in the day and ordered it flown unic to Munich with refueling stops at Nicosia, Cyprus and Zagreb. But police cars, ambulances and other vehicles at Munich's airport , apparently frightened the hijackers away and they or dered the plane back to Zagreb, even though the West Germans had agreed to free the commandos.

With this permission granted, an executive jet took off from Munich with the three commandos on board. It landed a short while later at Zagreb and only then did the hijacked plane, running low cm fuel, set down once again. After negotiations between the hijackers and the Germans, the three commandos t-hen walked from the executive jet to the three-engine Boeing 727, a short-range aircrait. Once more the jetliner was refueled and it took off again with the passengers, crew and six Arab guerrillas on board. The plane had been hijacked after it took off from Beirut, Lebanon, en route to a stop at Ankara, Turkey. The Israeli government appealed to West Germany not to free the three Arabs, saying this would "aggravate the Munich disaster" in which 11 Israeli athletes, a Munich policeman and five Arab commandos were killed. The Black September organ ization claimed responsibility for the Olympic massacre. A Bavarian Interior Ministry spokesman said, the decision to free the commandos came from Bonn after an emergency meeting of Chancellor Willy Brandt's Cabinet. The spokesman said the terms under which the commandos were freed included one that they be turned over to the hijackers only after the See GUERRILLAS, Page 2 Accuse U.S. ol Blocking Agreement Cong Step Att acks SAIGON (AP) Viet Cong, tacks had soared past tha lOOjthe hamlets had been recap-!

The attacks in the highlands were much heavier than those in the Saigon region. Govern- Iment defenders were forced to retreat from one base and a sec nod camp was threatened by a heavy shelling and ground attack.

Tlie base was hit with 1, 000 rounds of artillery, rocket and mortar shells Sunday and enemy troops were reported to have reached its barbed wire perimeter.
