The cause of the accident is still undetermined, according to A. A. Humphrey, company superintendent here. Five of the cars were derailed and completely overturned, while another car and the caboose were derailed but were left stand- ing upright. Railroad employes were busy Wednesday and today removing ties and repairing the section of track. The upright cars have been moved out of the area, Humphrey said, but the overturned cars are still there. The train was enroute to Ashland with a load of lumber at the time of the mishap, It was reported. No one was injured.

Twenty-three persons — most- . * * * ly women shoppers — were injured. Most of them were treated at hospitals. Four were admitted. Police, firemen and residents of the neighborhood pulled several victims out from under chunks of concrete. "It's, a miracle no one was killed," Fire Commissioner Martin Scott said after inspecting the ruins of the Food Queen Supermarket in the Bensonhurst section Wednesday. Mary Rossi, a shopkeeper on the other side of the street, said: "My God, it was awful. I was standing in front of my store when the roof seemed to blow up right in front of me. "The windows blew into the street and women and children ran out." Other witnesses told of seeing hysterical women and children running from the store. About 50 customers — mostly women and children — and 13 employes were in the store when the roof collapsed. Firemen today completed removal of debris from the -store and said no one had been found trapped or dead. Although police and fire officials thought no one was buried under the rubble, scores of men searched through the night with the aid of flood lights. Two firemen working in the wreckage suffered minor injuries when hit by a falling girder. Harold Birns, city commissioner of buildings, sent inspectors to investigate. Dist. Atty Aaron Koota promised an investigation. A disaster may have been averted by the fact that the building had two stories, ' and the force of the falling concrete and other debris was cushioned by the ceiling of the store. The roof was being waterproofed by workmen at the time. A smal piece of the roof where the men were working did not collapse They were not injured. The building had been con verted from a movie theater 1! years ago. The second flooi housed offices. Some families fleeing the battle area claimed U.S< troops were aiding junta soldiers in the Ight against the rebels. Some said they had seen American ;roops arrive with junta forces n three truckloads of reinforcements Tuesday. A U.S. military spokesman said the only American troops with the junta were radio units assigned to help Dominican forces keep their gunfire away from the American Lines. In New York, U.N. Secretary- Jeneral U Thant called on the United States to "use its good offices" to get the .rival Dominican factions to heed the cease- fire appeal issued by the Security Council last Friday. Thant said his special Dominican envoy, Jose Antonio Mayobre of Venezuela, told U.S. officials in Santo Domingo there was an "unavoidable implication of United States involvement because of the inaction of United States forces during the (junta) offensive." U.S. Ambassador Adlai E. Stevenson told the Security Council the United States had sent high-level diplomatic representatives to Santo Domingo to "help to stop the fighting and reconcile the factions." But Stevenson said the United States "is not taking sides" and Its forces "do not have a mandate to enforce the cease-fire." * * * Soviet Ambassador Nikokai T. Fedorenko demanded what right U.S. representatives had to go to Santo Domingo. He charged that U.S. troops were giving "practical military assistance" to the junta forces in "a genuine hangman's mission." He said the council should demand their immediate withdrawal. A U.S. official in Santo Domingo acknowledged that Washington's envoys have failed so far in efforts to replace the junta with a coalition government headed Romney Finds Both 1 Guilty of Neglect LANSING (AP)—Gov. George Romney fired Maj. Gen. Ronald McDonald, but reinstated Brig. Gen. Carson Neifert today, although finding both guilty of gross neglect of duty. Romney removed McDonald as state adjutant general. Neifert, who was quartermaster general under McDonald, was given a seven - month suspension. But Romney said the suspension would be retroactive to last November and Neifert would be reinstated as of June 8. McDonald and his attorney, Thomas McAllister, declined specific comment, but said they would have a statement later. Romney gave McDonald 10 days to choose between accepting the rank of Colonel and reassignment in the Michigan Guard or losing his federal status altogether. Over 700 U. S. Planes Attack Naval Base, Other Targets By EDWIN Q. WHITE SAIGON, Viet Nam (AP) — More than 100 U.S. warplanes attacked a North Vietnamese naval base and other targets today in a series of strikes punctuated by a propaganda leaflet raid only 55 miles south of Hanoi. All planes were reported to have returned safely. A U.S. spokesman announced 70 Navy planes, striking in two waves from the carriers Midway and Coral Sea, inflicted heavy damage on the navy Base at Phouc Loi, 165 miles south of Hanoi, with 100 tons of explosives. The attack was carried out during a thunderstorm.

A military spokesman said four planes, attacking before dawn with the aid of flares damaged five trucks in the con voy moving west along a road about 90 miles south of Hanoi. All four planes returned safely to the carrier Coral Sea without encountering any antiaircraft fire or hostile aircraft, the spokesman said. Wednesday night three pairs of U.S. Navy Skyhawks made separate strikes against a bridge 77 miles south of Hanoi and boxcars and other targets about 120 miles below the capital. They followed a mass strike by 40 U.S. Navy planes Wednesday morning. The raids against the North were resumed Tuesday after a six-day suspension failed to bring any response from Hanoi to U.S. peace overtures.

The American-built Jetliner's 11 crewmen died in the crash. All six survivors were Pakistanis. Two were employes of the Pakistan International Airline and another was a Pakistani tourist official. Three of the men were reported In critical condition. The flight was scheduled to pick up 52 additional passengers, . all guests of the airline, at Cairo for the remainder of the flight to Geneva and London. * * * Capt. Akhtar Aly Khan, pilot of the four engine Jet, reported engine trouble and a fire in the landing gear minutes before the crash. The plane, a Boeing 720B, was inaugurating the airline's new Karachi to London route. Among the passengers were 62 newsmen, airline officials and other invited guests. The same plane had made three prelnau- gural flights over the route. The big Jet ploughed into a sand hill in a heavy ground fog* as it prepared to make its final approach to the Cairo Airport. It crashed at 2:50 a.m. A West German airliner first sighted the wreckage, and Egyptian air force helicopters landed at the wreckage at dawn to pick up the six survivors. Nearly impassable terrain delayed the arrival of other rescuers until six hours after from seeing an illness kill his father who was still at work in the mills at 72. McDonald was one of the first labor leaders to win pension increases for workers long retired. His own pension, when he steps out June 1, will be $25,000 a year. As president he was paid $50,000. WASHINGTON (AP) — The j Abel praised McDonald House Ways and Means Committee has taken a long step beyond President Johnson's re- 3uest and voted to repeal entirely the excise tax on passenger automobiles over the next four years. The four major auto companies promptly announced they would pass any tax cuts on to Wednesday at their joint news conference. "Under your leadership we have made outstanding progress. I want you to know that these contributions are not only appreciated today but will be down through the years." But despite their handshake ana the absence of their former buyers, which would mean an j bitterness, there were indie a- eventual price reduction on an i tions that the old order already average car of about $230. The was changing. any criminal action." He added: "I find nothing that would indicate either profited personally from these activities." present excise tax on car is 10 per cent, and Johnson asked that it be cut to 5 per cent. Tuesday's Ways and Means Committee action — if upheld by Congress — would bring the eventual revenue reduction to nearly $5 billion, $900 million more than Johnson had recommended in a special message to Congress Monday. The cut in the first year would be about the $1.75 billion urged by the President. Swift congressional approval of excise tax cuts seems assured. The House probably will vote on the measure the week of May 31, if leaders carry out present plans. In the Senate, Chairman Harry F. Byrd, D-Va., said the Finance Committee hopes to take up the bill right after the House acts and will hear only one witness — Secretary of the Treasury Henry H. Fowler. Sen. Byrd said all potential witnesses favor the cuts. The unusual speed is designed in large part to head off any slump in buying the many goods on which taxes would be eliminated July 1. Following Johnson's recom- One of McDonald's chief contributions was continuous, year- round bargaining conducted by the joint union-industry human relations committee. It was responsible for writing the 1963 contract without reopening the old one, a first for basic steel. "Human relations committee is a dirty word now. We're just negotiators," said a top union official even before McDonalc! made his announcement. Abel had criticized the committee in campaign speeches, citing it as an example of how he said the union leadership had grown away from the rank and file. McDonald, who clearly enjoyed the prominence of being president of the nation's third largest union, had vowed to fight the election results to the fullest extent. But he also said he didn't want to weaken the union, anc associates say he had given a lot of thought in the" past three weeks to stepping out without a fight. He also was reportedly under pressure from his own supporters to withdraw his protests.
