(AP) - A young Kansas farm boy fresh out of college and reportedly looking for a job is sought in a wide manhunt today on a federal charge of robbing a Nebraska bank in which three persons were shot and killed and a fourth was wounded. Duane Pope, 22, whose parents live on a farm 30 miles southeast of here near Roxbury Kan., is named in an FBI warrant charging robbery of the Farmers State Bank of Big Springs, Neb., and wounding Franklin Kjeldgaard, 25, an assistant cashier.

There is no federal statute covering a fatal shoot-i ing. * * * R. E. Richards, Duel County, Neb., attorney, said he would file charges of first-degree murder and bank robbery against Pope today. Authorities at Big Springs said Franklin Kjeldgaard described the bandit as well dressed, about 35 years old, and with crew-cut hair He said the man entered the bank about 12:30 p.m. Friday when no customers were .present.

Sheriff Floyd Stahr said eight 22-caliber bullet casings were found on the floor of the bank. A green 1965 automobile rented from a Salina agency last Thursday apparently was the tipoff to federal agents for an intense manhunt for Pope across middle Kansas. Pope, the fourth - oldest of eight children of Mr. and Mrs. Earl Pope, reportedly borrowed $50 from his father Wednesday, saying he wanted to go to Oklahoma and look for a job. * * * That day he asked a Salina car rental agency about getting a car the following morning. Phillip Martin, who operates the agency, sad Pope told him he had to meet a tractor salesman in Kansas City. Pope came for the car at 8 a.m. Thursday but had a lapsed driver's license. Martin said a call to the highway patrol confirmed that a new license had been issued for the youth He drove away about 9 a.m., Martin said, saying he would return Friday morning.

McNamara, "without any reserva- ion whatsoever," urged Congress today to approve a controversial $446,586,000-pay increase bill which he called "fair to our military personnel and fair to our taxpayers." McNamara opened the administration's fight for the bill in testimony before the House Armed Services < Committee whose chairman already has denounced it as "disgracefully inadequate." The defense secretary contended that the administration measure "will provide a significant increase in pay for our career military personnel, compensate enlisted personnel with less than two years of service for the increas in the cost of living, (and) contribute to the retention of .skilled personnel in short supply." The administration proposal calls for an across-the-board 4.8 per cent increase in basic pay for officers and enlisted men with more than two years of service, and a 2.7 per cent increase in pay for enlisted men with less than two years in uniform. Chairman L. Mendel Rivers, D-S.C., of the House committee has Introduced the administration's pay bill but has disavowed it. The committee wants to boost military salaries by 10 7 per cent, totaling about $892,474.000 annually. McNamara pointed out that basic pay is less than half the total compensation for enlisted men and slightly more than half for officers. He reminded the House members that millary men also receive the benefit of housing and food allowances and what he described as a tax advantage in the exemption ol federal supply depot which has been a target before. The pilots said heavy smoke blanketed the area and most of the 15 tons of bombs hit a warehouse complex of 11 buildings. The spokesmen said the planes ran into "intense antiaircraft fire" but all returned safely. * * * On the ground, U.S. Marines scored their biggest success of the Viet Nam war Saturday when they killed 80 Viet Cong and wounded 60 others with artillery fire.
