"W'V 2 Montana Standard-Post c onumie terror s again, blow up big billet SAIGON (UPI) Communist terror squads trying to disrupt next month's elections struck again early Tuesday, blowing up a billet where some of their former comrades were steeping. The blast all but leveled the : Cheu Hoi (Open Arms) Building at Tri Tarn, about 38 miles northwest of Saigon. First reports from the scene said several persons were wounded but that there were no fatatities. It was not immedi- ately inown how many people were in the building. Nurses (Continued from Page One) think the public understands that we do have a real problem. Some of the girls may not be here next Julv (when the city had . offered to provide retroactive raises). We have, many young girls. That's why we cannot wait as the mayor wants us to do. Asked whether she thought the nurses' action was a disservice to the community, Miss Pope replied: "Doing A Service" "No. I feel we are doing a service to the community bv .doing this. There are fewer girls going into nursing now than ever before. W e are interested in saving the profes- sion as well as seeking more money and betterment for our selves. Diana Crawford, the hospital's nurses representative. said, "we will now give the results of the voting to the board of supervisors in the city and renew our original offer." However, Miss Crawford said the nurses would maintain an emergency relief force in the event of a disaster. She said the standby nurses would be "there 24 hours a day." Swanson said plans were under way to provide patients with vocational and volunteer nurses in the event of a strike. The hospital's emergency room was closed earlier ki the day but five other emergency facilities remained open. The weather story J TANA (east) Mostly High Low Pr.

The Viet cong radio broadcast a warning of wholesale assassinations of all candidates and officials connected with the elections. The Viet Cong are particular- ly bitter about the government program at Chieu Hoi, where Viet Cong defectors are wel- cornea uacK witn open arms The returning Viet Cong are indoctrinated, rehabilitated and "V many cases reunited with their families.

SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) U.S. Navy pilots Monday blasted four North Vietnamese torpedo boats in the-Gulf of Tonkin while the Viet Cong in the south continued harassment tactics on Saigon's water links to the sea but without success. Ground action remained light and scattered. Two of the torpedo boats were reported sunk, two damaged. Education post (Continued from Page One) phase of Title I of the act here.

Many Sacred Heart parishioners had resided in the Berkeley Pit buffer zone. A decrease is anticipated in the Grant School of the public school system, and possibly in me Jefferson School, also on the East Side. St. Ann School, on the South Side, registered 704, a drop of four. That school is the largest .elementary school in the Diocese of Helena. Additional enrollees are expected.

B52 bombers from Guam returned to hammer Viet Cong concentrations near the Cambodian border, 55 and 65 miles northwest of Saigon. South Vietnamese officials reported a sharp increase in the number of military desertions in the first six months of 1966, mainly due to political unrest in the northern provinces earlier in the year. Few went over to the Viet Cong, the officials said. They added that most quit the army to take more lucrative jobs. Many left to visit their families, and later returned to their units. " The Navy pilots hit the torpedo boats in two separate areas early Monday while patroling the North Vietnamese coast around Haiphong, the chief seaport. A flight of Navy A6 Intruder jets located three torpedo boats 70 miles southeast of Haiphong. The Intruder pilots then radioed the U.S. 7th Fleet carrier Constellation which sent out a flight of A4 Skyhawks. : The Skyhawks located the boats, and dove in on them with rockets and cannon blazing. One enemy vessel was stopped dead in the water while the other two fled in rain and poor visibility. An hour later another flight of Skyhawks spotted the vessels and attacked. The pilots reported one vessel exploded in a OH Ultra-Modern Office Space-Air-Conditioned - Besf Location in Butte-In The Heart of Butte-City Center Traffic Also Available-Office Space, Clean, but not Modernixed-VERY Reasonable Rent.

Missing steer (Continued from Page One) Butte rustling varies from the modus operandi of open-country rustlers who butcher animals on ranges or in pastures, leave the unwanted parts and hasten away on swift wheels, with the dressed - out carcass. Several have been caught doing it that way m Montana in recent years. Others remain uncaught. Those who are caught .face a punishment somewhat ' less drastic than that suffered by the miscreants of other years. The rope and the tree no longer await them. If those guilty of this latest Butte rustling are caught, and convicted, they'll get a few years in prison or maybe a suspended sentence. Anyhow, the glamor has gone out of rustling and the harshness has been eliminated from society's retribution, and Montana today experiences so little rustling that, as in this latest example, public surprise gets the better of public indignation. Common reaction to Monday's uptown rustling was: "Now who on earth would have nerve enough to do a thing like that?" RENT Phon. 792-3811 Solution may be hours away in Canadian railroad strike v OTTAWA (UPI) - - Parliament began immediate consideration Monday of legislation to order 110,000 striking railway men back to work in a rare display of unanimity which could mean the end of the massive walkout within 8 hours. The government, with the consent of all political parties, introduced a back4o-work bill that also contained eight - per cent wage increases for the striking workers.' Another bill introduced would provide a wholesale revision of the country's transportation administration. The legislation could sail through parliament, ending the strike by Tuesday or Wednesday. The nationwide rail strike began Friday, shutting down the transcontinental Canadian National and Canadian Pacific national telegraph and air express service and sharply curtailing ferry services in the maritime provinces. The back-to-work bill would order the members of 16 striking unions to their jobs and summon, the seven struck railroads to the negotiating table under a federal mediator. It also would give workers, striking for up to 30 per cent increases in pay, two four per Dillon (Continued from Page One) about $428,000. He said the needs of the town will be adequately served with interchanges at the north end and at Poindexter Slough. Interchanges only 1.1 miles apart, said Meyer, "is closer than is desirable in either urban or rural areas. Even if it could be shown that there was economic justification, we believe that the close spacing and introduction of another point of; conflict 1.1 miles from another interchange proposed to serve Dillon would bear careful study." . The BPR official said the agency's policy is to build interchanges no less than two miles apart in urban areas, four miles in areas near towns and eight miles in rural areas. The reason for the two-mile spacing in urban areas, he said, is that if interchanges are any closer together signing becomes difficult and confusing for motorists. Dillon residents had feared the proposed north interchange would send traffic from the interstate onto Baimack Street where it would have to cross the Union Pacific railroad tracks. However, Meyer said strong consideration is being given to a Virginia Street connection where a railroad separation is possible. The estimated cost of the north interchange is $685,000.. Two killed at Browning BROWNING (UPI)-Montana's highway death toll for 1966 jumped to 187 Monday night with the deaths of two men on a rain-slick highway near Browning. Dead are Leonard David Bull Calf, 21, and his cousin, Calvin Arthur Bull. . Calf 20, both of Browning. Karen Mae Everybody-Talks-About, 15, was taken to the Blackfeet Hospital with a fractured leg and other injuries. Glacier County Coroner William Riddle said the car was apparently headed down the Starr School Road at a high rate of speed when Jt left the road and rolled over two and one-half times. All three persons were thrown from the car. OUR AIM TO SERVE - . . to relieve the til distracting details; understanding and CI T1f 1 t D ABVljl cent raises. One would be retroactive to Jan. 1, 1966, the other to July 1, 1966. " Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson's minority Liberal government sought not only to stop the strike but to put the railways on a sounder financial footing. ' The reorganization bill would establish a Canadian transport commission to replace the Board of Transport Commissioners, the Air Transport Board and the Canadian Maritime Commission. The commission would be empowered to conduct investi- gations and recommend action to the government on the development and administration of all transportation policy. Hurricane Faith expected to miss mainland MIAMI (UPI) Hurricane Faith's mighty 120-mph winds slammed heavy seas against the picturesque outer Bahamas Islands Monday but weathermen said the big storm, now almost stationary, is expected to miss the U.S. mainland when it begins moving again. "We think the chances of it affecting the coast of the United States Were extremely remote," said Chief Hurricane Forecaster Gordon E. Dunn of the Miami Weather Bureau. Dunn said the latest information indicated Faith would stay essentially in a stall, drifting slightly toward the northwest through Monday night, then begin moving on a northerly course clear of the Bahamas and the mainland. The hurricane was located in the latest advisory about 570 miles due east of Miami and 220 miles east-northeast of San Salvador. The sixth hurricane of the busy season packed 120 mile-an-hour winds in a compact area near the center and flung gales out 300 miles to the northeast but only 150 . miles toward its "weak" southwest side and the Bahamas. Hurricane hunter planes flying through the vicious winds at the heart of the storm reported Faith was drifting at about 5 miles per hour on a north to northwest course. Wind gusts up to 40 miles an hour were felt on Grand Turk Island, site of a U.S. missile tracking station in the . southeastern Brhamas, as Faith drifted past. Squalls with winds up to 30 miles an hour were forecast in the islands from Eleuthera to Grand Turk until Faith moves out of the area.

Fourth draft of water bill made public .HELENA (AP) The fourth draft of a proposed bill to authorize one or more counties to set up water conservancy districts was made public Monday, at a meeting of the Montana Legislative Council. Reaction to the bill will be heard in Helena Sept. 20-21. Sen. Gordon McGowan, D-Higftwood, said he considers the proposal "one of the biggest steps taken in water resources development at the local level since the drought-ridden thirties." McGowan is chairman of the subcommittee working on what he calls "a major means for developing water." "The bill provides that local people must initiate and follow through on establishing a district," McGowan said. "The Water Conservation Board and other agencies will supply technical assistance but the control and direction will be local." He said directors elected by residents of the district will control the district's affairs. Provisions of the 43-page bill are in broad language, McGowan said, adding: "We want to let the local people take advantage of the unique problems and opportunities existing in their area. We have tried not to bind them." "We want people to use their imaginations in developing water resources," he said.
