'Twelve Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune Grim Task for Atlanta's Mayor •;PAEIS (UPI)-Mayor Ivan Al- leti of Atlanta, Ga., went about tie sad task today of • arranging for eventual shipment home of the bodies of 121 of his fellow •townsmen who were killed Sunday in: the crash of a Boeing 707 jetliner. The mayor began • preliminary discussions with U.S. embassy arid Air France officials but said fie realized it would take a "team off. experts" to identify many of the blackened bodies. "He said it might be "weeks" before the jab could be complete and the bodies 'returned by .Air France. " The mayor was accompanied by an embassy representative Monday as he viewed the corpses. Although he had known many of the victims personally he was unable to identify a single, one. '.For three hours the mayor grimly walked by row after row of bodies lying on slabs covered with black or white cloth. Job Is Hopeless His arms folded on his chest, he looked carefully, examining a wedding ring or some other personal item. But the job was hopeless. ," "I knew them all," he said with a; sigh, "We grew up together. This is a sad task, one of the saddest you can have." The mayor said he "did what I could" but was unable to make a single positive identification. . "A French investigating team lead by inspector general Louis Bonte seemed to have little on which to pinpoint the cause r of the crash despite the fact that it occurred in .perfect view of the Orly tower. Besides the 121 Americans, 8 crewmen and an Air France representative also died.

Bourke B. Hickenlooper, Republican Policy Committee chairman, GOP Gov. Norman A. Erbe, "and a' pretty young blonde all easily won nomination in Iowa's primary elections Monday, Hickenlooper rolled to an impressive victory, leading the GOP ticket and finishing with a more than 5-to-l edge over, a distant relative of former President Herbert Hoover, who was unable to vote for himself because of a federal prison term.

She became the first woman ever to win a congressional nom- ination in the state by defeating three male candidates for the right to oppose Rep, Neal Smith, who-was unopposed in the 'primary.
