Argentina (UPD- Argentine destroyers (ired on two Bulgarian fishing boats and captured two Soviet vessels without a shot Saturday when the Communist ships were caught within Argentina's 200-mile territorial limit. One of the-Bulgarian ships was hil by Argentine cannon (ire. A navy com- munique originally described the vessel as Soviet, but a naval spokesman later said il was Bulgarian. There was no official word on casualties but the newspaper Croniea reported one Bulgarian sailor believed killed and several others wounded by the navy's cannon fire. Navy sources said three Argentine sailors drowned when a boarding craft overturned. The Argentine foreign Ministry sent protest notes to both the Bulgarian and Soviet embassies, expressing displeasure al the repeated violations of Argenlina's territorial waters. The action took place 170 miles off the Argentine coast near Comodoro Rivadavia as the two Bulgarian ships tried to make a run for the 200-mile limit, of ficials added. The Bulgarian ship Aurelia was hit by Argentine'cannon,There was no word on damage. Argentine sailors boarded the craft to bring it to the nearest port, officials said. The ships were fired, on' after they ignored warning shots and refused orders to halt, officials said..Argentine cannon scored three'direct hits on the Aurelia, they added. The . Soviet ships Franz Hals and Prokoryev.sk surrendered and headed for port. .-"••;' i Navy commander Emilio Massera, one of Ihe three members of the military junta ruling Argentina, personally supervised the operation against the ships from a command post in Buenos Aires, the navy said. ' Massera's :orders were "final and clear — if necessary they must go to the ultimate consequences because the defensc.of our national sovereignty was in. the balance," a spokesman said. Four other Russian fishing vessels were captured Sept. 22 in the same area, and a fifth on SepU.126. . , • ~They offered only passive resistance to boarding parties and were laken to Puerto Madry, where the Soviet consul convinced them to cooperate with • Argentine authorities. Name Resto D'< To First Federal Board Coup Thwarted In Bangladesh DACCA. Bangladesh (UPlf— Junior officers tried to overthrow the military government during crucial talks for the relpase of scores of hijack hostages Sunday, but authorities reported crushing the uprising. "Everything is under control now." government spokesman -Enamul Huq said two hours after the insurgents look over Bangladesh Radio and foughl loyalist troops at the airport. The rebel troops seized the government radio early Sunday and said "a successful armed revolution has taken place with the ' help of the army, navy, air force, students • and police." Sporadic gunfire broke ou! al the airport as Japanese terrorists finished trading 59 hijack hosluges for a $(i million ransom and six imprisoned comrades, early Sunday. At least six Bangladesh air force officers were shot to death at the airport in the fighting. The bodies lay on the ground near the terminal building in front of a bus used to bring the freed hostages from the hijacked plane. The bodies were only yards from the Japan Air Lines DC-8 jet that flew the ransom and the six freed prisoners from Tokyo (o Dacca on Saturday to meet the demands of the 'Japanese Red Army hijackers. During a break in the gunnfiro. hundreds of panicstriken people fled the airport, running pell-mell into any car available and begging motorists 'to take them away.- '' Japanese diplomats in Dacca said one of the officers slain al the'airport had been assisting Vice Air Marshal Abdul Gaffur Mahmood, the ; government's chief negotiator, in talks With the six Japanese Red Army hijackers. The fighting at the airport lasted a little over two hours and sent reporters and government officials in ground floor lounges diving tor cover. None of Ihe freed hostages was ever in danger of the gunfire although al one point five stewardesses were forced (o turn back - when they tried to go from the airport to a hotel.."'.'.'Hundreds of Bangladesh troops, many in full battle dress, could be seen along the main highway from (he airport to Dacca. Governmment spokesman Huq said the rebel troops came "from the lower ranks of the armed forces. A senior military source confirmed (hat "it's over, the situation is under control now." Huq declined (o link Ihe dissident officers to any political parly in Bangladesh, but it was known that many lowcrranking officers were sypathetic !o a Trotskyitc party called the Jaliya Samaj Dantrik Dal, The coup attempt came two days after attempted mutiny at an army base at Bogra north of Dacca. Government spokesman did not link Ihe two incidents but the Trolskyile party has strong support in the Bogra area. The Trofskyites played a key role in the November 1975 coup thai put Maj. Gen. Ziaur Rahman in power. Rahman, who remains army chief of staff.'also took the • position of president of Bangladesh earlier this year. Haq said Ziaur and other lop ranking officers of the military government were safe. But he said the coup attempt forced Mahmood. Ihe third highestranking man in the regime, to leave the airport control tower. _ . Mahmood returned to the talks after the government reported crushing the uprising. The Japanese terrorists were still holding 82 persons, including nine crewmen, aboard Ihe Japan Air Lines DC8. 700N, That truck was driven by Gregory Bodnar. Hurst told authorities he did nol see the truck due to high corn. Officers said' all three victims were thrown from the car. Coroner Charles Heinsen said the two children were dead at the scene, Thomas of a basal skull fracture and Edward Jr. of a fractured heck, Mrs. Hurst was pronounced dead on arrival at Pulaski Memorial Hospital. She suffered multiple skull fractures, the coroner said. :. Bodnar suffered possible fractured right ribs and complained of pain in ; his face. Redlin complained of back pain and his spn.complained:of stomach pain. He had ai stomach laceration;:ot[tcers stated. .-•The deaths were the fifth, sixth and seventh for Pulaski Countv for 1977: Tide Turn sin Favor Of Deregulation WASHINGTON (UPD - The Senate endured its natural gas price filibuster lor six more hours Saturday, then deferred further battle until Monday amid signs il might soon end in victory for the deregulation forces. Democratic Leader Robert Byrd' told reporters while the Senate began a sometimes bitter and acrimonious 'weekend filibuster session he thought the chamber might be ready to qiiash (he filibuster by Tuesday or so. . -"I think they will'havehart a bellyful of .;. H"-by that time, By.rd;said. '','•: . •• "Renowned Wrangling between senators fighting to keep price ceilings on natural gas and those trying to remove those ceilings broke out before the Senate agreed to interrupt the fight until Monday. It headed toward a recess after dispensing with some other business. Byrd said the leadership 01 both parlies, would use the intervening time to discuss possible ways to end the tangled parliamentary stalemate thai had produced six straight days of filibuster by amendment. . "I don't think this (Saturday) is a good atmosphere * for tampering with the precedents of the Senate." Byrd said. "If we're not careful we may set some:. precedents that may come back to haunt us." . "...>,.••• Tempers flared at Saturday's session— Byrd himself pounded a desk and shouted in anger'during one dispute — and the Democratic leader suggested well before the recess decision (hat the strain had grown too great on everyone to expect any progress this day. ' "I think (hat tempers are just loo high to continue action at this time." he said then. By Saturday, indications were those - favoringderegulation of natural gas prices were overhauling the price control side, and it seemed likely they would eventually force — and win — a vote on their deregulation bill in the Senate. That vc-lory might be academic, however, because Byrd, House Speaker Thomas O'Neill and other congressional leaders have said they expect the House to reject any deregulation bill passed by the Senate. :,: One hint, the Senate filibuster .tide was turning in favor of the deregulation forces was that Byrd himself, who favors continued price controls, said Saturday he would support a deregulation bill if that is the, price of pnding' the filibuster and getting some kind'of gas bill passed: •• "If the question is put that way. the answer is'yes,'"hc said. "I think the realistic position here, as far as I'm concerned, is that the important thing is to,get the bill to conference" between the House and the Senate. The Senate, scene Saturday was much the same as it has been every day since noon Monday. Anti-deregulation senators started the day with some :iSO delaying amendments still in reserve and began calling-them up amid challenges, angry, cross-talk and confusion.
