Astronauts Pass Flight's Halfway Mark Big Posse Seeks Killer of Three Bank Employes Search Is Made in Nebraska, Colorado ' By BILL W. DEAN BIG SPRINGS. Neb. (AP) — A huge posse spread out across sprawling plains of western Nebraska and eastern Colorado today, hunting an icy-calm gun man who killed three bank em- ployes with shots in the back and wounded a fourth. "Every available man in 100 miles is taking part," said Sheriff Floyd Stahr. Late Friday Sheriff Stahr, a 6- loot-4 man in a wide-brim West ern hat, made his headquarters In the bank. State troopers, FBI agents, sheriff's officers and police from neighboring town: trooped in to report to him. The 510 residents of this vil lage astride the Denver-to-North Platte highway 10 miles north o the Colorado border were stunned by the killings Friday "I have no idea why he sho them," said county Atty Robert Richards. "They didn't resis when he told them to lay down on their stomachs." The gunman fired eight times as the four lay on the floor of the Farmers State Bank Three died Instantly. The fourth was critically wounded. Killed were Andreas Kjeldgaard, 77, a bachelor who was president of the bank; Glenn Hendricksen, 59, the cashier; and Lois Ann Hothan, 35, bookkeeper. Franklin Kjeldgaard, 25, nephew of Andreas, was taken to a Denver hospital with wounds In the neck and back. The hospital said today he was in critical condition. It was noon when the gunman drove up to the little red-brick bank on Main Street. Franklin Kjeldgaard, barely able to talk, told police the man "didn't seem tough" when he entered the bank. He said the killer was about /35, and wore his hair crew cut. He was neatly dressed in a dark suit. Only the senior Kjeldgaard and his three employes were in the bank. The man first asked about obtaining a loan. Then he pulled a pistol and ordered the four victims to lie on the floor, face down. Franklin Kjeldgaard wasn't certain what happened next. But state authorities said the bandit looted the cash drawers of about $1,500, and then walked into the vault. He found the safe locked. He then returned to the main room and started shooting. Sheriff Stahr said eight 22-caliber cartridge shells were found on the floor. As the gunman walked out of the bank he bumped into farmer Otto Mauser. "Good morning." he said politely. Mauser continued into the bank. The man got into a 1965 model car and drove unhurriedly away. New OAS Peace Team Trying to Win Settlement Dominican Civil War Marks Its 6th Week By ROBERT BERRELLEZ SANTO DOMINGO, Dornin ican Republic (AP) — The stalemated Dominican civil war marked its sixth week today with a fresh peace team of the Organization of American States trying to win a political settlement.

DEUTSCH SAIGON, Viet Nam (AP) — Government forces, badly battered by Viet Cong ambushes in recent days, struck back with the aid of armed U.S. helicopters and claimed today they killed 48 Communist guerrillas In a single action Friday. A U.S. military spokesman reported that quick action by U.S. Army helicopter crews accounted for 20 of the Viet Cong dead.\ Six Reds were captured and eight others taken as suspects Leftists May Try to Capitalize On Internal Ecuadorian Issues By WILLIAM L.

Vietnamese units continued to comb the area Saturday with the support of armored and artillery units. Four government soldiers reportedly were killed and four others were wounded with a U.S. Army adviser in Friday's clash. The adviser was struck in the left arm by hand grenade fragments. He was not injured seriously. Government forces were not as fortunate in another engagement Friday. They reportedly killed five Viet Cong, but suffered 18 dead, two wounded and 32 missing themselves after a Communist battalion attacked three hamlets 265 miles northeast of Saigon. This brought to 299 the toll of government forces killed, wounded or missing in action in the last three days. The high toll and pronouncements by a high U.S. military spokesman and a Communist Chinese propaganda organ underscored that the long-awaited Viet Cong monsoon offensive had begun. The U.S. spokesman said in Saigon Friday that "the important battle of the summer of 1965 has just been joined... events have been such that we are moving into an important period of the war." The New China News Agency described the Viet Cong offensive as "a glorious page in the annals of the liberation war in South Viet Nam, a brilliant page in a people's war...the advent of the monsoon is throwing the U.S. aggressors into still greater panic. A bigger defeat is in store for them." The ingredients of an explo- Proposal Draws Mixed Reaction By ERNEST B. VACCARO WASHINGton (AP) — Senators have expressed mixed reaction to Sen. J. W. Fulbright's proposal to assign the States a major voice in channeling U.S. military assistance to Latin America. The Arkansas Democrat, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, offeree the proposal as an amendment to the two-year, $3.35-billipn annual foreign aid authorization bill on which the Senate wii: resume debate Monday. It would require that the $55 million available for military assistance to Latin-American countries be furnished to the maximum extent feasible ac cording to joint plans approved by the OAS. This would include plar.s dealing with internal se curity defense. In addition, it would authorize the use of up to $25 million o the funds for an inter-American military force under OAS con trol. There was no immediate re action from the administration but Sen. John Sparkman, D Ala., a senior member of Fu bright's committee, said h thought-the amendment "has great deal of good in it."

There were reports that the new, three-nation mission, authorized Wednesday by a special OAS conference, brought from Washington a plan for a swift OAS-supervised election.

(AP)—Gunmen fired six bullets into the home of the chief deputy sheriff early today as officers pressed their investigation of a terrorist-style murder. Chief Deputy Doyle Holliday, who lives about four miles out of town, said he rushed from his house and emptied his .38 Magnum pistol at a fleeing car "Perhaps one of the shots did some damage but I am not sure," he said. Two of the bullets fired by the nightriders ripped through the kitchen wall. Two hit an air conditioning unit and another lodged in the wall of a breezeway to the garage. The other could not be located in the darkness. The shooting came as state, federal and local officers pressed a massive investigation into the shooting of Washington Parish's first Negro deputy sheriff—O'Neal Moore. A white man charged in the case, Ernest R. McElveen, 41, of Bogalusa, waived extradition Friday and -was returned to Louisiaa from Tylertown, Miss., where he was arrested. Holliday said he and his wife Citing statistics on employment and income to show that Negroes, in some ways, are faring worse today than 5 or 10 years ago. Johnson said this represented an "American failure." The President, who took the occasion to announce plans for a special White House conference next fall to explore such problems, said: •It is not enough to open the gates of opportunity. All our citizens must have the ability to walk through those gates. "This is the next and the more profound stage of the battle for civil rights. We seek not just freedom but opportunity not just legal equity but human ability — not just equality as a right and a theory, but equality as a fact and a result." Johnson, applauded frequently, spoke of seeking justice for the Negro and said: "I pledge this will be a chief goal of my administration, and of my program next year, and in years to come.

James Farmer, national director of the Congress of Racial Equality, also praised the President's proposals, but added: "It will be even more meaningful If there Is speedy passage of a voter rights bill In the federal backing for a massive voter registration drive this summer." Roy Wilkins, executive director of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, said, "It was a perceptive and courageous speech which challenged both Negro and white Americans to take the next step toward realizing the American promise for the Negro minority."

McDivitt was told by Mission Control that the Little Leagu* team of his son, Mike, 8, also won. Mission Control said the pilots had reported no more sightings of the unidentified object McDivitt reported during the 19th orbit. Officials listed at least 11 earth satellites, most of them fragments or space debris, In the general area of McDlvitt's sighting. As they whirled through their seemingly endless voyage, McDivitt and White were pronounced In excellent physical condition.
