Qulntanilla refused to give any clue to the nature of Costa Rica's request. There was speculation President Jose Figueres is seeking more military aid to counter the superior air force his long-time enemy Nicaraguan President Anastasio Somoza is assembling in Managua. Threat Increased The Costa Rican request and the commission's action followed Somoza's statement that abolition of the neutral zone at the west end of the Costa Rlcan-Nicaraguan border — ordered for 6 a.m. today — raised the threat of war between his forces and Costa Rica's. Somoza said he was rushing reinforcements up to the border anc the shedding of "any drop of Nicaraguans' blood will mean war." The five-nation peace group de cided on the hurried return at a meeting with Figueres and his Cabinet which began after the com mission returned from Managua yesterday afternoon and lasted into the early hours this morning. Costa Rica appealed to the OAS for aid at the start of the rebellion against Figueres two weeks ago The Costa Ricans charged Somoza had trained and equlhped the rebels in Nicaragua, a charge Somoza denied. The OAS senf aerial observer- and the peace commission and the United States sent Costa Rica foul fighter planes with OAS approval Somoza last week received 25 Mustang fighters purchased from Sweden. He announced last night in Managua that four of the fighters, "fully armed," took the air yesterday and a "few more" would be airborne today. Fear Frontier Crossing Somoza said last night he feared a frontier crossing by Costa Rican troops chasing the 200 rebels who took sanctuary in the buffer area six miles wide and 19 miles long after their attempt to oust Fi gueres failed last week. There was no official word tha Costa Rica had yet ordered it! forces to move Into the zone in pursuit of the rebels. The OAS group established the buffer area last week to prevent the rebels' Costa Rican pursuers from clashing with Nicaraguan border patrols. In announcing the lifting of th_ "bars" on the zone, the commission said its military observers would continue to watch operations along the border and asked both countries "to adopt all necessary measures to avoid any frontier incidents."

Wv-An Ameri- i Indian hero of modern war is dead—a bewildered and disillusioned victim of peacetime. Ira Hayes, one of the Marine flag; raisers on Iowa Jtma at the climax of World War II, was found dead yesterday on the Sacaton Indian reservation. He was 32. The doctor's verdict: overexpos- France's Flooded Rivers Settle Back to Normal P.A.RIS tfl — France's many flooded rivers slowly settled back toward normal levels today after a two-week rampage which routed thousands from their low-lying homes. The Seine, Marne, Loire, Rrhone, Saone and Garonne all were reported falling. Clear weather was forecast today, with the fall expected to continue. In Paris, the Seine dropped 4.4 inches overnight and was still subsiding. It was still too high for navigation under the city's bridges, however, and a weakened piling kept the midtown Invalieds Bridge closed to traffic. Cure Member Of RC Panel E. J. Cure took part in a panel discussion yesterday at the annual state fund campaign meeting of the American Red Cross in Little Rock. Mr. Cure dsicussed advance gifts ure to freezing weather—too much alcohol. Beflnnlnr of Downfall Hayes' moment of glory atop Mt. Surabachi in the far Pacific was the beginning of his downfall. Back home in 1945 Arizona's Indians looked up to him as a warrior who carried on the tradition of their ancestors. But for the chubby, friendly Pima Indian, things didn't go so well. "We hit the beach at Iwo with 250 men In my company,".Hayes once recalled, "and left with 27 a month and half later. "I still think of those things all the time." Once he was found on Chicago's skid row, wandering drunk and incoherent—without shoes. The Chicago Sun-Times started a fund for him, and a farm equipment company gave him a job. . But he didn't last. Lots of Chances Another chance came from a Hollywood family who hired him as a chauffeur and handyman. He landed in custody of Alcoholics Anonymous a few weeks later. "I've had a lot of chances, but When things start looking good I get that craving for whisky and foul up," he said. Hayes returned to the reservation and stayed there—except fo one interruption. With the two other survivors of the flag raising, John H. Bradley, of Antlgo, Wis., and Rene Gagnon, of Manchester, N.H., Hayes attended unveiling ceremonies of a statue in Washington commemorating them and their three dead buddies. Hayes is the Marine with the rifle slung over his shoulder, second from left. Pictures taken at the event show hLs deep-set eyes staring somewhere else, his mouth twisted into an uncomprehending frown. "Modest Guy" Comments from his two buddies helped explain Hayes 1 mixed-up life. Oagnon said he would try to attend the funeral, and added: "He was a great guy—a modest guy who didn't like the spotlight." Bradley said Hayes' death makes him "truly a war casualty." But an unnamed policeman who once picked up Hayes for drunkenness supplied the statement that writes his epitaph: "He was a hero to everyone but himself."
