Some 300,000 people gathered on a parade ground at the capital of Vientiane to "welcome the Peoples Revolutionary administration," according to broadcasts of Vientiane radio and the Pathet Lao news agency monitored here and in Hong Kong. It marked the end of a process that began formally in Laos three months and two days ago -- one that has been peaceful and with not a single shot fired. Retired St. Albans Dentist, 87, Dies Dr. Joseph Pettit, 87, of 910 B St., St. Albans, who formerly practiced dentistry in St. Albans for 30 years, died Friday in Thomas Memorial Hospital.

Accofdii* to the Pathet Lao N«rs agency, th* rally was addressed by Thao Moan, identified only as chairman of the "uprising committee" who said that the new marked a major turning Factory At Old Nags Home point in the development and growth of Vientiane province. Vientiane was the last of the Laotian provinces to be "liberated," a process that has meant the arrival of Pathet Lao troops in strength backed by tanks but accompanied too by the cheering adulation of the population. Saturday, the traditional nightly broadcast in French by Vientiane radio was preempted by a broadcast in the Lao language accompanied by sounds in the background of loud throngs cheering and singing,«s the announcement of the Pathet Lao um- eover was made. Earlier Saturday, the Vientiane radio referred to the "liberation" as a victory over "the U.S. imperialists and their henchmen." "This seizure of power (by the Pathet Lao) is of great importance," the broadcast said. PALATINE. 111. (AP)-Art Thompson is dedicated to saving horses from the glue factory. He operates an old nags home. His love for horses started 45 years ago at age 12 in the English hamlet of Preston. An Irish priest noticed how small he was and suggested he would make a good jock- ,ey- Thompson became one, also a trainer and riding academy master, and now he is tstall superintendent at Arlington Park ra- 'cetrack. But all his spare time is spent on a farm he has rented for the last 16 years in this suburb northwest of Chicago. He has 15 aged and broken down horses, including old stable ponies, that he feeds, coddles and lets roam over a dozen cozy acres of horse heaven. Several of his horses are thoroughbreds. "Trainer Joey Dorignac claimed Prince Ganzer for $4,000 and Law Pic for $5.000 California Motel Damaged by Fire WEST COVINA, Calif. l£) - A dozen guests huddled on ledges before they were led to safety down ladders or plucked from their precarious perches by snorkle during a motel fire Saturday, authorities said. Firemen said dense smoke wafted through the fifth floor of the Holiday Inn in this Los Angeles suburb after the blaze broke out in a maid's storeroom. Hotel officials evacuated the entire five- story building alongside the San Bernardino Freeway 15 miles east of Lost Angeles. Some guests tied sheets together in an effort to escape the flames but were res- cued before they could climb down, a spokesman said. About eight persons were treated at In- tercommunity Hospital for smoke inhalation. One man was treated for a cut wrist, a spokesman said. Firemen from three cities battled the blaze, bringing the flames under control in about an hour. The heaviest damage was confined largely to the storeroom and a corridor on the fifth floor, but the flames had begun to creep through to the fourth floor. last summer at Arlington but they later broke down and were to be destroyed." said Thompson. "I just can't stand to see a horse die so I offered to buy them. 1 got Prince Ganzer for $50 and Law Pic for $100." Thompson said veterinarian and feed bills keep him stretching to make ends meet but "horses are most of my life and I love 'em all." He and his wife of 30 years. Monica, live in a little home down the road. "Monica is scared to death of horses." he laughed. CHEROKEE IS Thompson's favorite-a 36-year-old brown and white stable pony who worked at Arlington as a lead pony in the 1940s. He is now blind in one eye and a bit stiff. "He'd given rides to hundreds of kids before I retired him eight years ago," said Thompson, who is a leader of a 4-H Club. "Grownups in their 30s who used to ride him now bring their children over to look at old Cherokee. They feed him carrots and apples. He is living out his life in a beautiful way." Thompson also has a 31-year-old mare named Modernistic who raced and won at Arlington in 1948. He says younsters in the neighborhood help keep his old horses groomed and fed and see that they get to their stalls at night. "I let them have free ridings privileges around the pasture," said Thompson. "About all I have to do is make a bed check." from Page One ; · As a result, a senior U.S. official said. ·Syria will probably remain "reasonably 'quiet" while Kissinger attempts to button ·down the accord during the coming week. · Kissinger shifted his negotiating locale .from Jerusalem to a government guest house in the Herzliya suburb. U.S. officials .said the site was more convenient for Ra;bin and other Israelis who spent the sab- bath in Tel Aviv. ", But it also removed Kissinger from the ·storm center of last week's demonstrations by boisterous Israeli opponents of the '. prospective pact, who fear a further Israeli withdrawal in the Sinai will harm Israel's security. ; A crowd of demonstrators in central Tel Aviv hopped into their cars and drove to the Herzliya meeting place when they heard of the change. A cabinet session was scheduled for to-day in Jerusalem to be followed by another round between Kissinger and the Israeli negotiating team, which includes Foreign . Minister Yigal Allon and Defense Minister Shimon Peres in addition to Rabin. . As he left Damascus after a four-hour talk with President Assad, Kissinger emphasized that he was not overlooking Syria's interest in regaining more'ground on : the Golan Heights. - ; "W^discussed the role of Syria in nego- ; tiations toward peace m the present context as well as in relatronship to an over- iall settlement" he said. for a Sept. 2 speech to the U.N. General Assembly. * * * ISRAELI PRIME Minister Yitzhak Rabin said in a televised interview Friday: "It is difficult to suppose that one could reach an interim settlement" with Syria because of the limited negotiable territory between the two forces of the Golan Heights. Despite this, newsmen aboard Kissinger's jet were told that Israeli officials gave him the impression that Israel is prepared to try and that Kissinger is a willing mediator. Syrian acceptance could signal a softening in past demands for prompt and full recovery of all territory occupied in the Golan Heights in the 1967 war. Marshall Professor Get Position · ...· ONCE ABOARD Kissinger's jet. a sen- . ior American official described Assad as :a little less anxious than he was last -March when Kissinger made his first at; tempt to arrange a Sinai agreement. . Syria's overriding concern is that its' ally in the 1973 war against Israel will be ;coaxed into a settlement with Israel, leaving Syria's own ambitions unfulfilled. ·";'. Newsmen were told that if Kissinger ev- ; entually attempts a Golan Heights accord he will follow the same pattern he is now 'using for Sinai. That is, he would conduct _much of the preliminary neogitions from "his desk at the State Department, boarding his "shuttle'' only if an agreement appeared in sight. However, U.S. officials said no date was set. Kissinger may stop in the Syrian capital again before heading for home in time From Page One Underwood On July 18.47 of the college's 80 faculty members sent a letter to Dr. Robert Renner. chairman of the student, faculty and alumni relations committee of the trustees, claiming that college morale had dropped during Underwood's tenure. "This we feel is mainly an outgrowth of the absence of any clear leadership or direction from the president's office," the letter stated. ^The letter also expressed "serious duirijls about Mr. Underwood 5 ability to raise large sums of money which must be raised in the immediate and long-range future." -The letter continued. "We have conscientiously sought to avoid dividing our college, upsetting our students, involving our external friends or damaging Mr. Underwood's public career. For this Mr. Underwood has rewarded us by setting colleague against colleague. We have all paid a dear price in energy and spirit." Underwood. 52, has been Bethany president since 1972, when he succeeded Gresham. A Sistersville native and a Republican. Underwood was governor from 1957-1961. Before that, he served six terms in the State House of Delegates. "The trustees of Bethany College are grateful to president Cecil Underwood for his three years of service to this institution." Gresnam said. "We honor his desire to pursue his personal interests." Dr. John Callebs, an Underwood associate, announced his resignation as dean of faculty last week.
