S, aircraft took advantage of a break in monsoon weather to resume support of the Lao tian drive. Military spokesmen said the deepest penetration of South Vietnamese troops into Laos was slightly more than seven miles although field reports said Some Black Panther re- - connaissauce units were as far as 15 miles. "Some , of our units have crossed parts of the Ho Chi Minh TraiL" a military spokes man said. He said there had been no significant seizures of , Communist arms and supplies, ' a major objective of the operation. The South Vietnamese Command denied Communist Path-et Lao reports that the town of Tchepone, 27 miles inside Laos, was under attack. It is a major goal of South Vietnamese for-es striving to cut Communist supply lines in the Ho Chi "Minh complex. The South Vietnamese said they had killed 55 Viet Cong and North Vietnamese since opening the drive across the border Monday. Military spokesmen listed South Vietnamese casualties at 18 killed and 56 wounded, - U. S.

Army UH1 Huey helicopter was shot down Monday over Laos ' wounding two crewmen. Two others were missing. The com- - mand also reported the loss of an Army Cobra gunship in the Mekong Delta 142 miles southwest of Saigon on Tuesday. No casualties were reported.

Total American casualties in the campaign, beginning with an operation inside Vietnam that started Jan. 30,- stood at 16 killed and 49 wounded, ac cording to unofficial' figures Says She Killed; Clears Manson LOS ANGELES (UPI) Convicted murderess Susan Atkins related a whole new version of the Sharon Tate murders TtjpRday one in which she personally took the blame for the actress' death and absolved Charles Manson of all guilt. The dark haired Miss Atkins poked holes in the prosecution's theory that Manson ordered the savage murders because he wanted to touch off a black-white bloodbath hie called helter skelter. "Charles Manson is an innocent man," Miss Atkins said. "It all started when I killed Gary Hinman." Miss Atkins told the Superior Court jury which already has convicted her, Manson, Leslie Van Houten and Patricia Krenwinkel in the seven slay ings, that it was the s t a t e's star witness, Linda Kasabian, who conceived the murder plot. Miss Atkins said the "Man- son Family" quarreled with tmusician. Hinman over money and when they went to his house to collect it he pulled a gun "and fired a shot at Man- son. "I couldn't see by love kill ed," Miss Atkins testified, so she stabbed Hinman to death Another member of the "family," Robert BeausolieL was arrested for H i n m a n's death, and the women discuss ed what to do to get him out of jail, she said. Miss Atkins claimed Mrs Kasabian suggested they "make it look like somebody else did it. Do a copy. Make some more of the same, lots of them everywhere, and they'll cut Bobby loose and everyone will go free." Miss Atkins said Mrs. Kasabian selected the Tate residence for the murders because she had been spurned once when she tried to buy narcotics there and wanted Tevenge. Miss Atkins contradicted Mrs. Kasabian's earlier testimony that Manson was awaiting the group when they returned to the S p a h n Ranch. She said no one was waiting for them and that when she awoke the next day she wasn't J ANOTHER ERA This picture it representative of another era in Millville when the train station ihown here at High end Brood Stt. wot on important place. In pait days, passenger train service for the community wot important. It come to a halt on Friday when service on the Pennsylvania - Reading Seashore Lines came to an end. mi f Era rn mm rains One h ii n n r e a and eight years oi railroad passenger service came to an end in Mill ville last Friday at 7: 05 p. m. when the one remaining passenger run concluded its final trip to Millville. The demise of the service occurred without bally-hoo and went unnoticed except to a few interested persons. The last passenger train to arrive here, at least until a time of new attitudes or a new era, was part of the once-a-day trips north and south over the Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Line between Millville and Camden. Crewing the last Budd car trip, was George DuBois, engineer; Walter Lemon, conductor; and Norman Eames, brake-man. - F. R. Morris, local passenger-freight agent, said today that there is now no passenger service on the line between here and Camden. The passing of the service will undoubtedly recall varied memories of a once thriving business. However, like the stage coaches, trolley cars and hacks that were once used to provide transportation to Jocal residents, the Camden-Millville run is now a thing of the past The Millville Centennial Souvenir book of 1966 states, "After three years of agitation by Richard D. Wood and Fur-man L. Mulford, prominent residents of the community, the first railroad in Millville was built in 1859, extending from Millville to Glassboro, a distance of about 22 miles." In 1863, the booklet says, the line was taken over by the Cape May and Millville Railroad Company. It continues, "On August 29, 1879, these two companies along with various other lines in South Jersey, were merged with the West Jersey and Seashore R.R. Company. On June 25, 1933, the West Jersey and Seashore R. R. and the Atlantic City R. R. Company, a Reading subsidiary, were united to form the Pennsylvania-Reading Sea shore Lines. any Crushed 7 Pen In Collapse Off VA Hospftal LOS ANGELES (UPI) Rescue workers using jack-hammers, acetylene torches and cranes pulled more bodies today from a veterans hospital smashed into "three floors of compressed concrete", by the Los Angeles earthquake.

ABOARD THE USS NEW ORLEANto America's Apollo 14 astronauts completed a nearly perfect moon mission yesterday afternoon when they splashed down a 4:05 P.M. in the South Pacific ending a nine day 1.15 million mile voyage to the moon and back. The mission of Alan B. Shepard Jr., Stuart A. Roosa and Edgar D. Mitchell was hailed by President Nixon, space officials and scientists as outstanding.. George Low, acting administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Adrrunistration said he could only give the mission an "absolutely perfect score." Dr. William Carpenter said a thorough examination of the astronauts showed they were in good condition. Shepard and Mitchell, in their 33 hours on the moon's surface, gathered rocks that may be as old as the moon itself and set up an atomic-powered science station that is already working smoothly and providing valuable information. Yesterday's splashdown was one of the most accurate ever accomplished, less than five miles from the prime recovery ship. Frogmtfn dropped into the water seconds after the capsule landed and helped the astronauts into a life raft. The spacemen were given flight suits and face masks to screen out any moon bugs they may have brought back and were air-lifted to the flight deck of the recovery ship wherel they were given a rousing welcome. Then they stepped into a quarantine van to begin 17 days of isolation. The men will fly by helicopter to American Samoa tomorrow morning, transfer to a jet transport and fly directly to their quarantine laboratory an Houston.
