Self Service Being Taken Literally NORTH AUGUSTA It seems some people are "taking" a little too literally the service stations which offer self service gasoline. According to the North Augusta Police Department "every couple of weeks this happens, some of them just forget -- conveniently, I suppose," said one officer. Police reported the latest such incident of filling op the gas tank without paying, occurred yesterday at a Raco Service Station located on Georgia Avenue. Increased incidents of egg throwings have also been reported since Easter in the North Augusta area, according to the North Augusta Police Department. Office John Middleton said six of seven such cases are now under investigation including an egging yesterday. Officer Middletoa said the car of James A. Key of 18§0 Bolifi Rd., North Augusta, was egged six times as he passed beneath the West MartintowB Road overpass. Scott, Mansfield Leave For China On April 16 WASHINGTON (AP) - Sens. Mike Mansfield D-Mont., and Hugh Scott, R-Pa.. will leave April 16 for a three-week tour of mainland China. Mansfield, the Senate majority leader, said he and the Senate Republican leader will be accompanied by their wives and a staff of six or eight. Mansfield said he accepted the invitation extended at the time of President Nixon's visit to Peking and that he would hope to visit five to seven cities, talking to as many of the people of China as possible to "build on the fragile foundation which the President has under- INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Sgt. Charles Pritchett, a city police training officer, was on his way home from a speech at Indiana University on "Defensive Driving." A man ran a red light and hit Pritchett. [taken." j Mansfield said his party i would not include State Department personnel, and that he goes to China without instructions. He said he would anticipate a meeting with Premier Chou En- lai and other Chinese government leaders, "but that is up to the Chinese." Mansfield said the group would travel in an Air Force plane to Shanghai. "Our purpose will be to look, listen and learn and hopefully to achieve a better understanding between our two countries," he said. "It will be our intention to make a report to the Foreign Relations Committee upon our return." Mansfield said he wants to see what changes have occurred in China since his last visit in 1946. He also visited China as a Marine Corps private in 1922, and went back again in 1944.

Bob Adcock of Nashville, who is an artist, used his talent by painting a sign on the hood of his bashed in car. The "Ouch" brings smiles in traffic to take away the ugly dent he received in the traffic war of fenderbend- ing and hood smashing. Since the small car was only hitting on a couple of cylinders he figured having the hood repaired wasn't worth the cost. (AP Wirephoto) · ~^ + + + + N. Viet Troops Capture Town North Of Saigon SAIGON (AP) - North Vietnamese troops captured a district town 75 miles north of Saigon today and opened a fourth front in their nine-day-old offensive with more than a dozen attacks on towns and bases in the Mekong Delta to the south. U.S. warplanes meanwhile hammered North Vietnamese forces in North and South Vietnam and neighboring stretches of Laos with more than 600 strikes. Two Navy fighter- bombers and a big rescue helicopter were shot down, the U.S. Command said, and six Americans were missing. The district town of Loc Ninh fell after fighting so close that an air spotter overhead reported the defending South Vietnamese were calling artillery fire in on their own positions. The spotter reported eight to ten North Vietnamese tanks attacking the town, and later the South Vietnamese command announced that Loc Ninh was abandoned during the morning after four days of heavy attack. The Viet Cong radio claimed that the South Vietnamese garrison surrendered after Communist forces killed, wounded or captured 400 of tie defenders. But Lt. Col. Le Trung Hien, the chief spokesman for the Saigon command, said the government troops "moved out to an area outside the city." Casualties on both sides were reported heavy. Government forces also abandoned Fire Base Hung Tarn, five miles southwest of Loc Ninh and 10 miles below the Cambodian border, to the enemy. Field reports said elements of four North Vietnamese divisions had crossed the Cambodian border in^ force and penetrated at least" 20 miles into South Vietnamese territory. Small enemy units- slipped to within 20 miles of Saigon and damaged a bridge on Highway 13, the north-south,, road from the border. A bypass was being used. Enemy forces were reported to have cut the highway temporarily in nine places south of An Loc, the capital of Binh Long Province 60 miles north of Saigon. Government troops were making sweeps in an effort to keep the route open to supply convoys. An Loc itself was threatened, and positions all around it were under rocket and mortar attack. But the Saigon command said the government still held the town. Few details were known of the attacks in the Mekong Delta, but the command said 40 of the enemy and 10 government troops were killed and 23 government men were wounded. The threat to Saigon was not nsidferet-Kimmediatei "senior officersTsjudjr buT ffie : urgent n e e d f o r reinforcements drained the capital region of its reserve forces. Military sources said the paratroop battalion that forms President Nguyen Van Thieu's palace guard was alerted for field duty, and an infantry bat- talion was assigned to the palace. Thieu met with U.S. Ambassador Ellsworth Bunker and en. Creighton W. Abrams, the commander of American forces in Vietnam, to review the situation. On the northern front below :he DM2, official sources said that North Vietnamese attacks had dropped to their lowest level since the offensive was aunched last Friday. South Vietnamese tanks and marines battled enemy forces west of Dong Ha, keystone of he northernmost government defense line 10 miles below the DMZ. South Vietnamese officers reported 60 of the enemy md seven government tropps killed and 26 South Vietnamese wounded. Two other clashes were reported four and five miles iouthwest of Quang Tri City, Jie northernmost provincial capital which is believed to be a target of the North Vietnamese. Illinois, Iowa, Indiana Hit By Storms, Tornadoes By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS V i o l e n t thunderstorms erupted along a cold front in the Midwest late Thursday, triggering tornadoes in Illinois, Iowa and Indiana and ending a brief spell of mild spring weather. One person was killed and nine were injured when a tornado ripped through Polo, DL, in the north-central part of the state. State police reported another person was killed by a tornado in Barnard, Ind. Possible tornadoes swept through Newton County, Ind., causing a countywide power failure and heavy damage to a high school. Another twister tore the wall off a bowling alley in Crawfordsville, Ind. Tornadoes also touched down in the area of Joliet, 111., where one damaged a number of light airplanes at an airport, and in parts of Iowa. Severe thunderstorms swept other areas of the Midwest with rain and. hail. Grissom Air Force Base in Indiana was soaked by nearly 2 inches of rain, while Galva, HI., was pounded by hailstones up to an inch in diameter. The severe weather ran along a cold front stretching from southern New England to the Dakotas. North of the front, areas from the Dakotas to the Atlantic Coast were chilled by snow, freezing rain and sleet. Before the heavy weather moved in, temperatures had soared into the 60s and 70s across much of the Midwest Thursday. The mercury hit 87 in Des Moines and 88 in Kansas City. In the East 1 to 3 inches of snow fell in central New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, while freezing rain brought travel warnings to Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and northern Ohio.

(AP Wirephoto Map) An inmate of the Aiken County Stockade was arrested Wednesday for driving a county road grader while he was under the influence. The South Carolina Highway Patrol identified the man as John Henry Lewis, who according to reports was operating the vehicle in an erratic manner when he was arrested at 3:30 p.m. on Park Ave., just east of the Aiken City limits. According to L.T. Tyler, superintendent of the stockade, Lewis was serving time for manslaughter. Lewis is confined to the Aiken County jail. Aiken Police also reported the arrest of Elvie S. McDowell, 22, charged with reckless driving. ...Price Hike Slows plus a small increase in the length of the average work week boosted average rank- and-file pay by $1.09 per week to $131.73, the report said. The gain in the average weekly paycheck was placed at 18.08 or 6.5 per cent above a year earlier. But rising living costs of 3.7 per cent over the year reduced the gain in purchasing power to $3.21 or 2.8 per cent. Increases in employment, earnings and hours of work are generally viewed as signs of economic growth. The modest rise in the whole- eale price index brought it to 117.4 of its 1967 base. This means that, on the average, wholesale goods worth $100 five years ago now cost $117.40. The index was 3.9 per cent above a year earlier. "Sharply lower prices for fresh and dried vegetables and a substantial drop in hog quotations after earlier advances were chiefly responsible for the decline in the farm products index," the report said. "These decreases were moderated principally by advances for eggs, oil seeds, fluid milk and grains," it added. "Lower meat prices were almost entirely responsible for the decline in the processed foods and feeds index," it said. Meat prices in the last consumer price report for February had increased sharply fol- owing earlier wholesale rises.
