US May Take Plane Seizure To the International Court WASHINGTON M — The United ilates may take to the Internation- I Court Its 'complaint against Husla and Communist Hungary, tor he 1951 seizure of an American Air Force cargo plane. The plane was forced down in Hungary by Soviet fighters on bor- ier patrol. After being held for six *eeks the (our Air Force crewmen were released, but only after the 0. S. paid a fine of $123,605 imposed by the Hungarians on a harge of illegally crossing the rentier. The • U. S. yesterday served a ormal demand on Moscow for elurn of the plane and its cargo, v payment of its $98,119 estimated Rjue, plus interest. Hungary was asked to turn over court records of the secret trial. Nothing was said ;about refunding the fine. The' demand appeared to be a futile gesture. Hungary has ignored such requests in the past, and the U. S. has never been able to get a satisfactory settlement of border incidents with Russia. Dut the State Department said this government is "considering- appropriate legal action" and the formal notes were deemed a necessary preliminary step. rf Russia run! Hungary refuse to settle by negotiation, the next step presumably would he an appeal to the International Court at The Hague. Russia, however, has refused to be bound by decisions of this tribunal.

And no one had the desire more than two young Oklahoma City brothers. The boys, age 11 -and 12, found temptation too much of a foe ns they sat near a woman with a bulging purse Monday night at the Bethel Center. Later, when they looked inside the purse, (hey found what appeared to be a million dollars—or, even better, $160 cold cash. The next day they skipped to school loaded. Police, recapping their adventure, said they threw handfuls of dollar bills in the air and watched their schoolmates scramble for the money. . One of them tipped a .playmate £'.25 .for a shoeshine. He' valso (handed a lad a quarter to brush h his coat. j As the riay wore on, nnd spend- ijng money became dull, the 12- j^car-old found a way to liven I] things ,»p. He gave a girl S3 for , : four kisses. The brothers handed a school- .mate a 520 bill and ordered: "Here. son. Go get me some change." When the Jricnd returned he was tipped S5 for 'his trouble. Hot dog stands in the neighborhood suddenly found they were doing a banner business. At one point the boys got brave enough to ask Iheir homeroom teacher if they could throw a big Christmas party. The suspicious teacher turned thumbs down on the proposal. When the boys ran out of cash —they also ran out of friends. Bv that time police hart been informed of the spending spree and collared them. The father promised full restitution, but the police decided they would get back as much money as (hey could. Juvenile Officer O. E. Bailey reported so far they have collected $14.90. One boy, he said, had only a nickel left—but he generously returned it. Several others also explained they had already spent their money. In the meantime, the youni; millionaires found themselves penniless, friendless and facing the wrath of their angry father.

Russia has contended the plane was forced down, white trying to deliver supplies to nnti-Communlst guerrillas. The State Department says it was on a routine flight Uk- Ing supplies from Germany to the U. S. Embassy at Belgrade, Yugoslavia,' and that the plane lost its bearing.
