ncaNSPOKT PUBLIC UBRAR*. Caracas Quiet; People Happy At Jimenez Ouster CARACAS, Venezuela (AP)—Some clashes between forces of Venezuela's governing junta and die-hard adherents of opposed dictator Marcos Perez Jimenez continued up until early Saturday night. But generally Venezuela rejoiced in its newfound freedom and a promise of new elections as soon as possible. In Caracas, the din of a thousand honking automobile horns signalled peaceful traffic jams. All stores and business establishments were open and doing rush trade. Movies reopened for afternoon showings. School children | trooped back to classes. Lot- tery ticket sellers hawked their-lucky number wares. I Thousands of Venezuelans I jammed overseas telephone and I cable offices to send messages to I relatives and friends, often reporting the loss of some member of -the family in the bloody street fighting of the last week.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PRICE TEN CENTS Think Zarubin Visited Nixon Vote Count To Size Him Up For His Boss On Schools Due Monday WASHINGTON un _ Ambassador Georgi Zarubin quite probably called on Vice President Richard Nixon so that, whe-n the envoy goes home next week, he can give Soviet leaders a first hand report on the man who could become President. This is the top guess in a guessing game which broke out nerc after Zarubin's meeting with Nixon Friday. The. State Department is deeply interested in assessing the importance of the move because the department is trying to figure out the prospects for drawing Russia into secret, negotiations looking toward an jiast summit conference. The United States opened a probing operation Thursday to find out, as one official put it, whether the Soviets "arc serious about a summit meeting and are willing to begin preliminary work, or whether they are solely interested in making propaganda." U. S. Ambassador Llewellyn Thompson called . on Soviet Foreign .Minister Andrei . Gromyko Thursday and talked about getting exchanges started between the .United States and Russia through diplomatic channels on cer faction in the armed forces as well as the civilian leaders. I The ousting of two military! men from the junta — because' they were deemed too close to the old regime and the swearing-in of Mrs. Camp and tied her up. "They evidently wailed for Dr. Camp to come home, then set the house afire," he said. "Just what the motive was, we are not sure. We think it could have, been robbery but with everything burned it is hard to tell what is missing." Relatives said the house was filled with valuable antique furniture and expensive oil paintings. John R. Camp, a brother of the physician, said Mrs. Camp had some beautiful diamonds that have not yet been found. The physician married Dallas Irene Graham, a major in the Army Nurse Corps in 1946. When they were discharged in 1948, they "returned to Italy- and practiced medicine in Rome until 1954. Camp was a native of Whitesburg, Ga. Mrs. Camp was from Fairmont, Minn. The couple had no children, Timer Cert dies 1 1 Going Too Post In Market Si.

The junta now comprises three military men and two civilians. • Elections Coming Larrazabal told reporters after the ceremonies that free elections will be held as soon as possible but could not set the date until conditions permitted. The abolition of the dread secret police and the jailing of 196 of its chief agents also added to atmosphere of freedom. The agents are to be tried on charges of torturing or ill-treating prison- rs. One of the agents is Luis ..Raffael Castro, former secret police inspector general, who was captured while driving toward an embassy to seek asylum. Prisoners who had been jailed by the secret police' accused Castro of presiding in formal dinner jacket over electric shock and beating sessions. Gasoline T/ti eves Are foiled Twice The sheriff's department sail) yesterday two attempts to steal gasoline from farmers south of Logansport failed. Sheriff 0. R. Carson and Deputy George Shanks went to the William Stevenson farm yesterday where they found car tracks and shoe prints leading to a gas tank which the owner had left empty. .Shanks said matching prints and car tracks were found on the James W. Moore farm yesterday. But, again, the would-be thieves were stumped when the valve on the gas tank stuck after- they broke a lock. Apparently, the attempts were made late Friday or early yesterday.

PALM BEACH, Fla.

Mead said friends reported the 60-year-old Young had appeared despondent lately although there was no information on the cause of his depression. The body was discovered about noon by an unidentified member of the family who went in search of him.

Plane Loaded With Secret Gear Crashes SALT LAKE CITY I/PI — Loaded with secret gear believed to deal with missiles, an Air Force B26 crashed and burned in a snow storm Saturday, killing a civilian and injuring three Air Force men aboard. The Air Force, alter some delay, posted guards around the wreckage, just north of Salt Lake Municipal Airport. But reporters and photographers already had gotten a close-up look at the wreckage. The plane was so thoroughly smashed and strewn over a barren Held, however, H was doubtful they saw any classified material in recognizable form.

"Bankers, they're the trouble with a lot of railroads," he once fumed. "Bankers don't pretend to be industrial managers. What we need is more ownership interest in railroads.

Murchison Sr. This was in' 1954. Richardson and Murchison, lifelong cronies, bought 800,000 shares of Central stock for 20 million dollars in order to vote the proxies for Young. And they did it with borrowed money—not using a cent of their own. Complicated Deal It was an involved transaction by which the 800,000 shares owned by the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway of which Young formerly was president, came into possession of the pair. The C&O had acquired the stock while Young was its president, but under a ruling by the Interstate Commerce Commission could not •ote it in the election of the New York Central directorate.
