Quote of Day MOSCOW — Western observer commcndng on absence of military might from Soviet's May Day celebration; "It's hula hoops instead of hardware this year." In Red Vief arms cache SAIGON (UPD-The Communist arms cache captured Friday south of Saigon included light-weight flame throwers and ammmiition for other weapons new to the Red arsenal, it was announced today. U.S. and Vietnamese intelligence officers tallied the arms hoard today during a lull in the air war over Viet Nam. An American military spokesman said that as of mid - afternoon not a single bombing attack had been launched against North Viet Nam. If the day ends with no new attacks, it would be the first lime since April 13 that North Viet Nam had not been hit by U.S. planes. American jets were busy in the south despite the lull in North Viet Nam. .A spokesman said 55 air strikes were made inside South Viet Nam by Air Force and Marine Corps jets. The biggest raid was in Binh Dinh Province 270 miles northeast of Saigon where 37 FlOO Supcrsabrcs and six B57 jet bombers hit Viet Cong concentrations in an area where the guerrillas have tried to cut highway 19 linking the central mountains with the sea. Delayed reports from the provinces said Communist guerrillas kidnaped four Japanese surveyors Wednesday on the Shre Pack River in Darlac Province, where the Japanese were working on a watcr-con servation project. Discovery of the flame throwers was the first confirmed evidence of their use by the Communists, although there had been reports of such weapons in action in the central high lands earlier this year. Col. Lan Quang Thi, deputy commander of South Viet Nam's 7th Division, said the flame throwers — apparently of Red Chinese manufacture — were "particularly suited to the small Vietnamese people." .•\mmunition found in the cache, about 50 miles south of Saigon, included what appeared to be shells for a 70 mm how- izer and Chinese-made 3.5-inch rockets. However, no howitzers or rocket launchers were found. The Communists are n o 1 known to have weapons of either type. bassador to the organization, made the U.S. statement in a special meeting of the Organization of American Stales (OAS) Council Venezuela and several OAS members had questioned President Johnson's action sending more than 4,000 Marines and paratroopers to Santo Domingo to protect American citizens and other foreign nationals there. Venezuela led off the criticism, charging that the United States had violated the OAS charter by unilateral intervention in Dominican affairs. "This is not intervention in any sense," Bunker replied. Hej said the American forces were ^cnt "solely for humanitarian purposes" and the protection of lives. After Bunker's speech, Mexico's delegate said his government only regretted that the United States felt it necessary to take steps which "evoke such painful memories" in Mexico and other Latin American nations. Mexico said the OAS delegates should re-affirm explicte- ly the sovereign rights of tales under the inter-american charter and the principles of free determination and non-intervention. Chile presented some of the strongest criticism of the United States, saying that sending troops in was wrong "even [or the protection of its nationals." Chile demanded that the U.S. forces be withdrawn.

Booby trap in car kills Houston editor HOUSTON (UPI) —Melvin L. Steakley, 37-year - old religion editor of the Houston Chronicle and a father of five, was killed today by what a police lieutenant called "one of the most dia helical mechanisms for death I have ever seen."

Police said they found the pistol, cither a 32 or 38 caliber, wired and taped to the steermg column and wired to a triggering device placed on the clutch pedal. It has been carefully turned so that none of the spokes would intersect the Ime of fire from the weapon, Steakley was struck in the heart by the one bullet, but managed to climb out of the car, parked two blocks away from the Chronicle building m downtown Houston and scream for help before collapsing in death 149 feet away. No one heard the shot, but a chemical company employe. George C. Guy, 55, said he heard four cries for help as he stood on a corner waiting for a bus. He went around the corner, he said, and saw the man's body lying on the sidewalk. A couple drove by in a car and also saw the body, but before they could notify poUce, a squad car happened on the scene. "Wliatever the reason for this," Lt. C. B. Massey said, "it is one of the most diabolical mechanisms for deatli I have ever seen."

LONDON (UPI)—Battle lines formed today for a struggle on steel nationalization which could bring down Prime Minister Harold Wilson's Labor government. The Conservative and Liberal parties oppose the government's plan to take over 13 big steel firms, and two Laborites have made it clear they will not vote for it.

The government published a "White Paper" Friday announc ing its plan to buy the 13 companies at a price of about S1.5 billion and merge them into a single "national steel corpora tion."

Spike Jones, 53, noted band leader, succumbs LOS ANGELES (UPD-Bank- leader Spike Jones, who made a fortune from playing zany and sartirical music, died early today in his Beverly Hills home. He was 53. His wife, Helen Grayco, was in the home when Jones died. Jones was hospitalized in serious condition March 31 with complications following an asthmatic attack earlier this year. He was released from the Santa Monica, Calif., hospital April 8 after doctors said he made a full recovery. Jones was born Dec. 14, 1911, in Long Beach, Calif. He began his musical career in Long Beach Polytechnic High School where he was drum major of a 90 piece band. His first experience at leading a band came in his later high school years when he led a five- piece orchestra called Spike Jones and his Five Tacks. He said he got his start in music at the age of 10 when a railroad cook whittled a pair of drumsticks out of some old chair legs for liim. Jones, whose real name was L i n d 1 e y Armstrong Jones, broadcast his first musical radio show on Sept. 17, 1942. The broadcast included the "Bronx Cheer," and telegrams began showering the network even before the show was completed. Among the many congratulations were severed contract offers. Jones' band members were characterized by their zany clothes and instruments. They used kitchen utensils, cow bells, pistols, anvils, automobile horns, and small cannons to make their music. One of ones' biggest hits was "Der Feuhrer's Face." It was released in mid-1942 and was a wild musical blast at Nazi dictator Adolph Hitler. Others of his hits included "C h 1 0 e." "Hawaiian War Chant," "Glow Worm." "William Tell Overture" and "Two Front Teeth." All of them sold more than one million copies. Jones and his wife had three children: Spike, Jr., Leslie Ann and Gina Maria.
