Heavy gunfire broke out in the capital. First idications were that the cease-fire which ended the near-civil war between the army and trade unionists had come apart. Charges of dynamite, the left ist tin miners' favorite weapon, went off in at least four La Paz suburbs. There were reports of dead and woimded but the casualties could not be confirmed immediately.

The Bolivian power company cut off electric light service because of short circuits in its wires. Travelers arriwig in La Paz reported heavy fighting in the Altoplano between army troops and armed peasant militia. The new outbreak of violence came as junta leader Gen.

Helicopter contract goes to Hughes LOS ANGELES (UPI) Hughes Tool Co. officials today reported receipt of a $14,966,964 contract to build 714 light observation hehcopters (LOH) for the Army. Rea E.

"It is believed that the contract will bp extended to total at lease 4,000 helicopters, maybe more." Hopper said. "We will build them in out plant at Culver City. "Work will start immediately." he added, "and the first aircraft under today's contract will be delivered in the summer of 1966." The LOH, designated 0H6A by the Army, weighs 1,070 pounds empty and can lift a useful load m excss of that.

Nicholson trial witness on stand again PASADENA (UPI) - The defense subjected a surprise prosecution witness to intensive cross-e.xamination today to try to break down his testimony that Timothy Nicholson offered up to 810,000 to "get rid" of his tttin brother. Arthur Santini. 42, a Covina housepainter, was called to testify in an unexpected maneuver on Monday. He said Timothy suggested domg away with his twin, Todd, by making it appear as an accident. Defense attorney Max Fink referred today to remarks made by Santini at the time of his arrest May 14, in Alhambra for being drunk, fighting and disturbing the peace. Santini conceded he "may have said" he told police then he was a drunk and could not lick his problem. Fink noted that Santini had recalled Monday that Timothy brought up the alleged offer to get rid of Todd last June 17 at a wedding both were attending. Santini said he was sober after attending one wedding and going to the other at which he met Timothy. But Santini, under continued interrogation, said he could not remember who was married at the first wedding, where the church was and where the reception was held. He also did not recall telling officers May 14 that he was "half drunk" when he left the first wedding.
