"You fellows have been writing some bad stories about me and Sam," she told a crowd of shouting reporters, using her private nickname for the baldish boss known to his associates as Moe. ••It's been a terrible experience," she said. "I hope it does not ruin my career. The ones who have been hurt worst are my sisters, Dorothy and Christine, and my parents. It has just killed them." Miss McGuire's mother is an ordained minister.

Thor was the basic launch vehicle but Altair in the past has been the fourth stage of the Scout missile system. The Scout has been termed the "poor man's rocket" because of its relative low cost. It is propulsion vehicle. The .^ir Force announcement 25 hurt in supermarket as roof collapses NEW YORK (UPD—It was getting close to dinnertime and about 50 last minute shoppers, mostly women and a few children, scurried down the aisles of the Key Food supermarket in the Bensonhurst section of BrookliTi Wednesday. Several peculiar, ever-widen- mg cracks had appeared in the ceiling of the old two-story building, which was once a movie theater. A plasterer, Thomas Mont- forte, 39, was climbing a ladder in the center aisle when it happened. The roof fell in. "Run it's falling,'" Monlfortei .shouted, scampering down the! ladder. "It's falling." he called 1 out, running for the doors. U.N. leader to consult with rivals SANTO DOMINGO (UPD — United Nations representative Jose Antonio Mayobre said today he planned to see the leaders of both rival Dominican military factions to make final arrangements for Friday's 12 hour cease-fire to remove the dead and wounded from the city's streets. Mayobre said he would also visit the Red Cross which, under the cease-fire plan agreed upon in principle Wednesday night, would remove the bodies. The 'Venezuelan, personal representative here of U.N. Secretary General Thant, said he had been told by an aide there was less fighting than usual during the night. The U. S. Army reported minor sniper fire at daybreak but said no heavy weapons had been heard since Wednesday night. The Army said the body of a Marine missing from his unit since the night of May 18 was returned Wednesday night by Dominican civilians to a U. S. checkpoint. Another Marine reported missing was in the hands of rebels and the Army said a Peace Corps worker was trying to arrange his release. The Army said the two Marines were driving a water truck on a route entirely within the international zone. The Marine died of a gunshot wound in the chest. The new death brought the casualty toll of American servicemen here to 20 dead and 102 wounded. Three paratroopers were wounded in action Wednesday in firing near the National Palace, one by shrapnel and two by small arms sniper fire. Maj. Gen. Antonio Imbert Barreras, head of the military- civilian junta, and rebel Col. Francisco Caamano Deno were to sign separate agreements today providmg for "cessation of hostilities" during 12 daylight hours. No precise hour had been set for the start of the cease-fire, but it appeared it would become effective at dawn. Casualties have been reported heavy in the junta's campaign to mop up rebel forces in northern Santo Domingo, but it is unlikely that the fuU toll will ever be known. Many bodies have been buried in back yards and patios or burned in the streets as a precaution against disease. It has been impossible to recover other bodies because Pakistani jetliner crashes in UAR. 121 iciiied. 6 CAIRO, U.A.R. (UPD-A Pakistan airliner crashed in a ball of fire today while approaching Cairo ."Mrport on an inaugural flight, killing 121 of the 127 persons aboard, including seven .Americans. The airline, the U.A.R. Embassy in Washington, and relatives of victims in the United States listed the seven Americans. They were identified as: Mr. and Mrs. Lewis T. Howard and their daughter Elizabeth Clare of Sturgis, Mich. Howard, 43, and his wife, the former Marian Peters, were on their way home on a visit from Saudi Arabia, where Howard worked for an oil company. The U.A.R. Embassy listed George Brock, an American traveling on a diplomatic passport; Arthur C. Hill of the Chicago, 111., Tribune, and Jerry Harris of Stamford, Conn. Donald B. Love, 45, of Riverside, Conn., an oil executive, was identified by his - company and the airline. (Love's death was confirmed in Riverside, Conn., when his employer, Esso International, informed his family. Love, was en route home from a business trip. He leaves a widow and four children. > Find Anti-U.S. Propaganda Ten of the victims were identified as Chinese, and a Chinese Communist diplomatic pouch and anti-American propaganda from Peking were found scattered among the wreckage. It was not knowTi if any of the Chinese on the plane were officials or diplomats. The plane crashed in the desert while approaching Cairo Airport. The crash was the third worst single plane disaster in aviation history. Only a 1962 crash in Paris and a 1953 crash near Tokyo were worse. The American - built Boeing 720B jet was on an inaugural flight from Karachi to Cairo and then was to continue to Geneva and London. Pakistan Airlines has been flying to Communist China since 1963, and today's flight was thus widely billed as the first direct air link between Communist China and the Middle East. Six gravely injured survivors, all Pakistanis, were removed from the plane's charred wreckage, which was scattered over a half-mile area of the Halzoun'y Valley about 10 miles from the airport. Had Expected Death One of the survivors, Djalal Elkarimi, said he and the others who escaped death were in the back of the plane. "It's a miracle that any of us lived. We all should have been killed," he said. A rescue team member reported that when he reached the wreckage, about 200 or 300 Bedouin tribesmen were searching through it, "pillaging (Continued on page 8) Another group of Braceros given approval great boom, tons With a -tcol and concrete rained down i on the shelves and floor of the supermarket.

(UPD- A S10.5 million B58 Hustler bomber crashed and burned on landing at Little Rock Air Force Base early today, killing one crewman and injuring tlie other two. The victim was Capt. Steve SACRAMENTO (UPD — Salinas Valley strawberry and vegetable growers have authorization to import l.OOO more Mexican nationals to help in this season's harvest. The authorization came from U.S. Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz Wednesday night just after his special investigative pane! recommended the action. Some 1,500 Mexicans are now being brought into California under previous federal authorization, and the new approval by Wirtz brings the total to 2,500. The Salinas area growers association had asked for 2.150 more Mexicans. Wirtz said further consideration" wuld' be given for more should current needs "alter substantially." The recommendation by the special panel was made on the basis of a hearing in Salinas May 12 and other investigations. A similar hearing was held today in Blythe on a request by the Blythe Growers, Inc., for 949 foreign workers for melon harvesting. The petition has the endorsement of California Employment Director Albert Tieburg. The pane! which made the recommendation to Wirtz included Professor.s Arthur Ross. Daniel .Mdrich Jr. and Benja- one or niin .Aaron. .About 200 Mexican nationals who failed to get jobs as bra­ ceros Tuesday demonstrated at the international border at Mexican Wednesday, but Mexican troops dispersed the crowd without incident. Under a special lifting of the ban on braceros, 600 farm workers were allowed to cross the border into the United States from Baja California. But more than 1,000 others, most of them from the border city, could not get jobs. US planes attack Reds with bombs and leaflets SAIGON (UPD—Seventy U.S. Navy planes today attacked a naval base deep in Communist North Viet Nam, mflicting "heavy damage," a Navy spokesman announced. The attack followed a 25- plane leaflet raid that reached to within 55 miles of Hanoi, the closest U.S. planes have flown to the North Vietnamese capital. In South Viet Nam, one U.S. Marine was killed and two wounded in a Communist mor­ tar attack near the Da Nang Air Base. The Marines fired back and inflicted losses on the Viet Cong. The Navy planes—50 carrier based fighter-bombers, with 20 other Navy aircraft flying pro- jtective cover—hit support facilities at the Phuoc Loi base, 165 miles south of Hanoi. The Communist mortar attack on the Marines indicated that the Viet Cong had thrown "main force" troops against the Marines around the key Da Nang base, U.S. officers said. The Marines fought back with their own mortars and rocket launchers and silenced the Communist barrage after six shells had fallen in the ranks of the Marines. .-V search party found one dead guerrilla and a wounded man who was captured. The Air Force F105 Thunder- chiefs dropped their leaflets over Ninh Binh, 55 miles south of Hanoi.

In the opening session of the board's two-day meeting, the Building and Grounds Committee prepared the proposed budget for submission to the full board Friday. The expenditures in the budget would be covered by state funds, S91.7 million; federal and other loan funds, S31 million; federal other grant funds, 36 million. During comments concerning another matter, the regents indicated they believed board standing rules and orders should be altered so that many routine university administrative matters would not be brought before the board. Triggered by a request of university vice president Elmo Morgan for permission to grant an easement for a power line on property owned by the Davis campus to Pacific Gas and Electric, r e g e n t s' opinions seemed to be unanimous. Regent Dorothy Chandler of Los Angeles said she believed such matters should not be the Also on today's agenda were committee reports on non-resident tuition fees and reports on the educational programs at the Riverside and Berkeley campuses. On the agenda Friday were the Meyer Committee recommendations for rules on student conduct. President Clark Kerr's plans for reorganization of the university and the Byrne report on student demonstrations at Berkeley. The Meyer Committee proposals were expected to bring heated debate when taken up by the board. The committee proposed a set of student conduct rules and then invited comments from the university community on the proposals. Critical comments showered down from various organizations including several faculty organizations. Most of the criticism was on tlie fact that tlie committee set the rules in the first place. Most critics said rule making should be left to university administrators, particularly to the chancellors at each campus. and the ejection capsule hit as the chute opened. Kitchler was still in the capsule and was killed on impact. The pilot, Capt. R.L. Semann. 33, of Grove City. Ohio, and 1st Lt Ronald T. Smetek, 33, of Detroit, both rode out the supersonic jet as it broke up and skidded 5.000 feet down the runway. They ran from the craft as it caught fire and suffered only minor burns. Knight says he would run if supported S.ANTA ANA (UPD—Former Gov. Goodwin J. Knight was on a court record today as saying he would run for governor in 1966 "if the Republican Party gives me the kind of support I need to win." Knight said Wednesday while on the witness stand in an embezzlement trial that he would run for the top state post. He modified the statement later when questioned by newsmen. Jones crashes but unhurt INDIANAPOLIS (UPD—Race driver Parnelli Jones of Tor. ranee crashed mto the wall at the Indianapolis Speedway today in the same rear-engine Lotus-Ford in which he quali fied for the 500-mile race last Saturday. Car owner J. C. Agajanian said Jones was only shaken up in the accident on the southeast turn. Anti-agitator bill passes on Unruh vote S.ACRAMENTO (UPD - Assembly Speaker Jesse M. Unruh engaged in some last minute dramatics today as the Assembly voted final passage to a controversial bill aimed at "outside agitators" at the University of California. The bill, needing 54 votes to move downstairs for the governor's signature, received only 51 on the first roll call. Unruh, who was on the floor but had not voted, waited until two other Democrats had cast "aye" votes, bringing the total to 53. Then, as the clerk called the roll once more, he cast the decisive ballot and heard a burst o£ applause from the gallery. •The final count was 54-11, with all "no" votes coming from Democrats. Robert Kennedy urges passage of gun control bill W.^SHINGTON (UPl) — Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, D-N.Y., avoiding direct reference to the assassination of his brother, today urged immediate approval of a gun control bill to save lives and "spare thousands of families" grief and heartbreak. The former attorney general, brother of the late President John F. Kennedy, charged that a "massive publicity campaign" against the legislation had distorted its purpose and was "doing the nation a great disservice." He said he hoped a Senate subcommittee considering the measure also would examine ways to disarm private groups like the Ku Klux Klan, Back Muslims and Minutemen. Kennedy said "private arsenals" should be curtailed and eliminated—at the least, their weapons should be registered.- The bill would curb mail­ order sales of firearms and Kennedy said it would "sharply curtail the importation of foreign military surplus weapons which account for the bulk of the cheap mail-order trade, and the bulk of tlie large-caliber weapons sold in the United States." A mail-order foreign rifle was used by Lee Harvey Oswald in the Kennedy assassination. Opponents of the legislation have said the bill. sponsored by Thomas J. Dodd, D- Conn.. was prompted by hysteria following the assassination of President Kennedy with an Italian rifle purchased from' a mail order distributor. Kennedy was not expected to mention the assassination in his testimony, and sources on the subcommittee said they did not plan to bring the subject up. Supporters of the bill say it is needed to keep weapons out of the hands of juveniles, criminals and irresponsible persons. Other congressional news: Viet Nam: Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman J. William Fulbright, D-Ark., said the recent suspension of U. S. bombing raids against North Viet Nam was a demonstration of the nation's "good faith." Although it did not bring any favorable response to negotiation offers from the Communists, he said, it showed the world the United States wants peace. Reorganization: ;Sen. Hugh Scott. R-Pa., said Congress should consider assigning a staff aide to every member of a major Senate committee. Scott's testimony was prepared for a House - Senate cmmit- tee that is studying ways to increase the efficiency of Congress. Westinghouse gets contract SUNNYVALE (UPD — Westinghouse Electric Corp. an. nounced today that its marine division plant here had received a 34 million Navy contract for construction of power plants for 26 destroyer escorts. C. R. Eisenschmidt, division manager, said the contracts comprise one of the largest ma. rine equipment orders booked by an American company since Worid War II. The ships will be built by Todd Shipyards Corp. in Seattle and San Pedro, Calif.; Avondale Shipyards. Inc.. New Orleans, and Lockheed Shipbuilding and Construction Co., Seattle. Caamano says U.S. troops shot at his forces UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (UPD — Dominican rebel leader Col. Francisco Caamano Deno charged today that American troops attacked his forces from behind, killing the regime's interior minister. Caamano, in a cablegram to the Security Council, said th minister. Col. Rafael Fernandez Dominguez, was killed when U. S. troops opened fire against rebel forces engaged in an exchange with soldiers of the military-civilian junta. House group asks invention of tree climber WASHINGTON (UPD — The House Appropriations Committee called today for the invention of a tree-climbing machine to polhnate California date palms. The committee, in a report accompanying an agriculture appropriations bill, said there was an "urgent need" for research to develop machines to replace Mexican farm labor in California agriculture. "The problem of the date industry, which must depend on imported labor to climb to the tops of the palm trees for pl- lination and harvesting purposes, is an example," the report said. "Unless these essential processes can be mechanized, the future of the American date industry is threatened." The committee, which recommended appropriation of $1 million for a contingency agricultural research fund, said mechanization research to help meet the problem should have a "high priority" in use of the fund. With the expiration of the bracero act last year, growers in California's Coachella Valley say they have been unable to find enough U.S. workers willing to climb the tall ladders for the pollination process. Gen. Schriever reveals plan for space expansion ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (UPD —Gen. Bernard A. Schriever. calling for expanded U.S. space efforts, outlined plans today for sharp advances in rocket boosters and development of manned spacecraft that can land on air base runways. The head of the Air Force Systems Command, who supervises America's intercontinental missile and space programs, told the .'Aviation Space Writers -Association's annual meeting that "as a nation we must redouble our efforts in space." Schriever said manned spacecraft which plummet back into the atmosphere lik bullets and land in the water are "not satisfactory for military purposes." He described Air Force projects for designing spacecraft that can maneuver back through the atmosphere and land at airplane speeds. He said that one project is a wingless vehicle called the SV-5 which will be launched in 196667 from Vandenberg Air Force Base. The SV-5, which gets airplane-like "lift" from its fuselage, will be flown on a ballistic course, entering the atmosphere at spacecraft speed of 16.000 miles an hour but slowing down and maneuvering like an aircraft. Outlining progress of military space programs. Schriever said: —Four experimental Vela satellites now in orbit provide "an excellent test ban monitoring capability"—a means of detecting any violation of the ban on nuclear explosions in space. —Satellites now in orbit are leading to the eventual development of space-borne means of detecting and warning against ballistic missile attack. —The Air Force is working on new anti-satellite systems to follow the Army and Air Force devices announced last year by President Johnson. The systems are designed to knock down hostile satellites if that ever becomes necessary. —An experimental military communications satellite system to be put in orbit next year will have satellites with an expected life of one and one-half years. Schriever also described a study program for an engine called Scramjet. It would have two purposes. One would be to carry payloads to the edge of the atmosphere and thrust them into space. Another would be to power airplanes which would be able to span the United States in less than an hour.
