Tape Recordings Point to Ex-Cult Members as Monastery Bombers CHATSWORTH, Calif. (AP) Tape recordings discovered near the dynamited wreckage of the Fountain of the World monastery point to two former cult mem- berg as the bombers, police say. Nine persons, possibly 10, were killed in Wednesday's earth-jarring explosion. The two dynamiters are believed to have shared the fate of their victims. Detectives said the blast apparently was touched off by Ralph Muller, 33, and Peter Kamenoff, 42, both of Joshua Tree, Calif. Tape recordings made by the pair the night before the dynamiting indicate they were angry at the leader of the cult, Krishna sion.

The 58-year-old west Coast Longshore leader and 35-year-old Noriko Sawada, a Nisei, were honeymooning today after convincing a ICC to Hear Plan to Quit Daily Trains WASHINGTON (AP) - The Interstate Commerce Commission has announced it will conduct a public hearing on a proposal by the Soo Line to discontinue two daily passenger trains between Thief River Falls and Duluth, Minn., via Superior, Wis. The discontinuance would become effective Dec. 29. The commission directed the company to keep the trains run- ping for another four months to permit investigation. The commission said numerous train patrons had protested the proposed discontinuance, and that it will try to quickly dispose of the matter. The Soo filed the discontinuance notice last month under the shortcut provisions of the 1958 Railroad Relief Act. cide, but they bid their goodbyes. One of them said: 'If we don't statute is unconstitutional. It was patterned after a California law dating back to the gold rush days. The California law was declared unconstitutional in 1948. Said Judge Taylor Wines, "Marriage isn't a privilege. It is a right of a free and equal individual." And he ordered the county clerk :o issue a license. Champagne Toast "To my wife, who had a rough go getting here," said Bridges after the private marriage cere- money performed by Justice Wiliam Beemer. It was a champagne least. The wine was provided free by Bridges' hotel host. Their romantic trip came to an abrupt and embarrassing inter- ude Tuesday when they learned— to their surprise and obvious discomfort-of the old Nevada statute. Three times Bridges and Miss Sawada were denied a marriage license. After the second turndown the Australian born labor leader annou.iced he would fight the law. Then he went to the hotel where he had registered himself and Miss Sawada as "Mr. and Mrs. H. Bridges" and reregistered his fiancee under her maiden name. They took separate rooms. Barred From Chambers Newsmen and photographers, who had kept close tabs on the couple for two days, were barred from Justice Beemer's chambers. Bridges, harried on this elop- ment to his third marriage, told the cameramen: "No this is private. It's my marriage and my ast one, I might add, because I'd never live through another ike that." He emerged smiling, lipstick- smeared and congenial and poured champagne while photographers took pictures. That contrasted with his wrist- wringing over Tuesday's legal merry-go-round. Bridges, president of the International Longshoremen's and warehousemen's Union, said: "My wife and I believe all citizens of Nevada should be proud of Judge Wines for his display of courage and legal integrity — so should all forward-looking Americans in every state."
