Approval, Royal Navy Stops Oil-Laden Ship on the High Seas to Prevent Delivery to Rhodesia an A GREEK VESSEL Portuguese Warships Are in the Area on a ''Routine Patrol" London (AP)—Acting under United Nations authority, a boarding party from Britain’s royal navy seized a Greek tanker on the high seas yesterday to stop her from delivering oil to the rebellious white supremacist government of Rhodesia. The Greeks offered no resistance, and in Athens the Greek government: expressed approval. Anger in Rhodesia The British action touched off a wave of anger among the white population of Rhodesia, but there was no government comment. I Only hours after the U. N. Se-! curity Council, by a 10-0 vote! with five abstentions, told Britain to prevent such deliveries by force, the royal navy cleared the decks for action. About 150 miles southeast of Beira, a Portuguese-ruled East African oil port, a gray British sub-chaser, the Berwick, closed with the 11,200-ton tanker Mannela and sailors boarded her. The Manuela, low in the water with a 16,000-ton cargo of crude oil, was then turned away from Beira and steamed on a southerly course through the Indian ocean with the British party still aboard. A spokesman for the owners | said in Athens the ship had been; ordered to proceed to Surban,, South Africa, and discharge her | cargo there. Fail in One Attempt The British navy had sought unsuccessfully earlier to persuade another Greek tanlcer, Joanna V, from reaching Beira with 18,700 tons of oil. The Joanna V is still anchored off the entrance to Beira harbor and has not discharged her cargo. Two Portuguese warships, the frigates Dom Francisco de All- maidu and the Bacheco Bereira, were prowling the seas at the harbor moutli. Later they moved over the horizon on “routine patrol,” according to the Portuguese authorities in Beira. The Manuela is now said to be Panamanian-owned, but Greek registered. She has changed her name twice and her ownership once in the last two months. The tanker was formerly known as the Marivenus and before that as the Charlton Venus. The other tanker, the Joanna V, also changed her name. She was known before as the Arietta Venezelos. As “Shadow” Tankers They were labeled “shadow” tankers by the British, whose intelligence services trailed them from port to port as they cruised around Africa. Prime Minister Harold Wilson kept in touch with latest developments from his vacation home in the Scilly isles, 25 miles off the southwest coast of England. Wilson received the news of the boarding over his “hot line” telephone link with London, than calmly went off for an 8-mile walk.

DAMAGE IS AT $35,000 Occasional Bad Weather Is Expected Today A $35,000 house fire in Overland Park and a large power failure in the southeastern part of Kansas City occurred within minutes last night as thunderstorms moved across the Greater Kansas City area. The home of Everett F. Corwin at 6514 West Sixty-ninth street was destroyed after it was struck by lightning about 10:25 o’clock. About two minutes earlier electricity failed in an area extending from Fifty-eighth to Eighty-fifth streets, Prospect to Elmwood avenues. The thunderstorms, containing some hail, began moving into the area shortly after 9:30 o’clock. Moderate rain fell during the storms, which originated along a line from about 20 miles northwest of Kansas City to Salina, Kas. Herring, Kas., near Topeka, measured 1.05 inches of rain in about 25 minutes. Occasional showers and thunderstorms are expected to continue in this area today, ending by tonight. Corwin, who was alone in the house, said he was in bed when the lightning struck. “I heard the lightning but I didn’t know it had struck the house,” he said. Charles Opel, 6519 West Sixty- ninth, said his wife saw the flash of lightning but thought it had struck a utility pole. He said he saw flames leaping from the house and rushed across the street to alert Corwin. He said he then ran four blocks to his sister’s house to report the fire. Opel said telephone service in his house was interrupted by the lightning. A Kansas City Power & Light Co. spokesman said there were (Continued on Page 2A.)

By Eugene Kozicharow (A Member of The Star's Staff) I T was a breezy, balmy day for baseball yesterday as 5,801 fans completed a quiet Easter Sunday by watching the Kansas City Athletics play their non-league rivals, the St. Louis Cardinals. Many of the fans who attended the exhibition game yesterday went straight from church to the Municipal Stadium. Several of the women fans wore Easter bonnets, and many of the men were dressed in jackets and ties. Baseball was a family affair yesterday. Children obediently sat with parents, and several grandmothers in the crowd became baseball fans for a day because it was Easter and they wished to be with their families. Even though it was exciting baseball as the A’s lost to the (Continued on Page 2A.)

The jovial custom has a religious significance, explained the Rev. Milan Bajich, the church’s pastor. In the Eastern churches, the egg is a figure of the Resurrection, for birds emerge from the shell as Christ rose from the tomb. The Serbian Orthodox had attended a midnight vigil service at which a procession three times around the church represented the finding of the empty tomb by three women.
