BIythevffle (Ark.) Courier News - Saturday, June 24, 1M7 - Page Three Sabotage Supected In Airliner Crash By VINCE CAROCCI and STEVE MARCUS BLOSSBUHG, P 3 . (AP) The president of Mohawk Airlines has asked FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover to investigate a strong suggestion of sabotage" in the crash of a jetliner Friday that killed 34 persons near here. In a telegram to Hoover Friday night, Robert E. Peach, Mohawk president, said evidence has developed in course of notification of next of kin of crash victims which leads to strong suggestion of sabotage." He did not give any details of the evidence. The plane - a BAC111 on Flight 40 bound from Syracuse, N.Y., to Washington, D.C. — plunged in a ball of flames onto Blossburg Mountain in north- central Pennsylvania at 2:50 p.m., shortly after it took off in overcast from Elmira, N.Y. AN ORDINANCE FIXING DRIVE-IN RESTAURANT VEHICULAR REGULATIONS Ordinance No. 761 BE IT ORDAINED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF BLYTHEVILLE, ARKANSAS: SECTION ONE: A drive-in restaurant, within the meaning of this ordinance, shall be deemed to be any restaurant where meals, sandwiches, ice cream, or other food is served directly to or is permitted to be consumed by patrons in automobiles, motorcycles, or other vehicles parked on the premises. SECTION TWO: (a). It shall be unlawful for any person while on or adjacent to the premises of a drive-in restaurant to race the motor of any vehicle, to suddenly start or stop any vehicle or to make or cause to be made, any other loud or unseemly noise. It shall also be- unlawful for any other person parked on the premises of such restaurant, to blow or cause to be blown any automobile horn or motorcycle at any tune while to parked. (b) It shall be unlawful for any patron or other person on the premises of a drive-in restaurant, whether in or out of an automobile, to drink any beer unless purchased on the premises. It shall be unlawful for any patron or other person on the premises of a drive-in restaurant, whether in or out of an automobile to loiter or to create a disturbance or a breach of the peace in any way whatsoever, including but not limited to loud and offensive talk, the making of threats or attempting to intimidate, or in any other conduct which causes a disturbance or a breach of the peace or threatened breach of peace. No person shall drive a motor vehicle onto the premises of a drive-in restaurant and then from said premises without parking such motor vehicle, unless there is no unoccupied space available on said premises. (c) It shall also be unlawful for any person to leave any un- ocupied motor vehicle on any drive-in restaurant parking lot and to leave the premises thereof except with the knowledge and consent of the operator of the restaurant. SECTION THREE: It shall be the duty of the drive-in restaurant operator to post on the premises, in a conspicuous location, one or more signs bearing the following legend: "Cruising in a motor vehicle is unlawful. Loud and offensive talk and other disturbance or breach of peace is prohibited. No loitering. No unoccupied vehicle may be left on these premises without the consent of the restaurant operator." SECTION FOUR: Any person found guilty of violating any of I Witnesses said the wreckage I was scattered over a wide area and that nearly all the bodies were mutilated and dismembered. I was in World War II and I never saw anything like that," said Raymond Smith, 48, who visted the scene. Before Peach sent his telegram, a Mohawk spokesman said the FBI was routinely investigating any possibility of sabotage. FBI agents also were sent to the scene to help idenify victims, and the National Transportation Safety Board, a newly established unit in the Department of Transportation, sent investigators. * * * Former Maine Gov. John H. Reed, a member of the board, said Friday night the airplane's flight recorder tape had been found, intact and would be sent to Washington for analysis. He said investigators had heard reports of a bomb but that there was no evidence to that effect, which has come to our attention at this moment." Residents of Blossburg, town of 1,956, about 300 miles south of Corning, N.Y., said they could tell the airliner was in trouble as it flew over. It sounded like the engine kept cutting out," one man said. Blossburg postmaster Louis Schultz said he saw the plane's left wing on fire and pieces of debris falling off. It was making a noise like a whistle," he said. It was just like a toy going down — going down sideways." Schultz later visited the crash scene and said the fuselage was gone, just as if someone had stuck some dynamite in the center and blew it to pieces." Witnesses said the plane came down on a flat area of the mountain top. * * * A temporary morgue was established hi the Blossburg fire hall, but some observers said identification would be an almost impossible job." In addition to the FBI crew, pathologists and dentists were called to aid in identification., The pilot was" identified as Capt. Charles Bullock, 44, of Cazenovia, N.Y., who had been with Mohawkk. nearly 15 years. Among the victims were two Franciscan priests from Graymoor, N. Y., And Montour Falls, N.Y., en route to a Franciscan meeting in Washington, two officers of the Richmond, Va., Fire Department heading home after two days of instruction on a new fire truck in Elmira and six communications specialists from several companies returning home after a training program in Cooperstown, N.Y. A Mohawk spokesman said the pilot did not talk to ground flight centers after leaving Elmira, normal procedure. Mohawk, one of the nation's largest regional carriers, has had only one other fatal crash. On July 2, 1963, seven persons died when a twin-engine propel- lor-driven plane crashed on takeoff at Rochester, N.Y.

U.S. Navy 13ti gral 141-4] T (Continued from Page One) President Johnson." Glassboro, a small town near Philadelphia, Is about halfway between New York and Washington—which is how it came to be the compromise site in the dispute between Johnson and Kosygin over who should come te whom. The Moscow version omitted Christian's statement that the second Glassboro conference Sunday had been suggested by Kosygin. Radio Peking lost no time in accusing both powers of directly planning a great conspiracy on a worldwide basis." While Kosygin ostensibly went to the United States for the U.N. session, Red China declared, the Soviet premier's real purpose was to confer secretly with Johnson on criminally selling the rights of the revolution of Vietnam people, Arabs, as well as Asian, African and Latin- American peoples to U.S. imperialists." Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United Nations, Jamil M Baroody, seemed little impressed with the Big Two summit, no matter what the outcome. If they agree or don't agree," the Arab diplomat said, there will be no solution if it is not a solution that satisfies the Arab world." Elsewhere at the United Nations the reaction to the news from Glassboro was generally favorable. Diplomats took the continuation of the talks as an encouraging sign. They speculated that at least one concrete result might be agreement by the two nuclear superpowers on the proposed pact to outlaw the spread of atomic arms. Rusk and Gromyko are expected to try to complete wording on a treaty draft to present to the Geneva Disarmament Conference. Glassboro was spending the day cleaning up after the first flood of visitors and bracing for the second. With the publicity from the first meeting and virtually an open presidential invitation to onlookers to come again Sunday, prospects are that Glassboro's normal population of about 12,000 will soar to unprecendenl- ed heights for the second summit. Johnson told the crowd: Those of you who have Sunday afternoon off, we will be glad to have you come too."

Asked about his position on the Vietnam war, Wallace suggested that persons demonstrating against the government's policy should be put in prison "to show Hanoi we will sustain our servicemen until victory is forthcoming." Wallace said he would not have a prepared text in advance of his talk. A special guest at the luncheon will be Mrs. C. M. "Mom" Sanders of Arkadelphia who ment Wallace when he was an Air Force trainee at Ouachita Baptist College during World War II. Wallace said he remembered Arkansas fondly even though he contracted meningitis while at Ouachita and spent several weeks in the Army-Navy hospital here at Hot Springs. B. C. Barber B. C.

Maurer demanded the elimination of all foreign interference" in the affairs of Middle Eastern states. He said, No effort from outside can take the place of a real settlement adopted by the countries of the region themselves in dealing with their common problems." The Israelis themselves have demanded that the Arab states recognize Israel's right to exist and negotiate a peace settlement with her free of foreign interfence. The Arabs have refused. Romanian Foreign Minister Corneiiu Manescu is the unopposed candidate for president of next fall's regular General As. sembly sesston. One Arab ambassador, asked if he thought the Arabs would vote for Manescu after Maurer's speech, replied, "I don't think so. They were all pretty furious." * * * L Palestinian spokesman, Omar Azouni of the Arab Higher Committee for Palestine, said the Romanians were angling for better trade relations' with the United States by trying to please American Jews. King Hussein of Jordan will arrive in New York tonight to address the assembly Monday or Tuesday. His government has accused Israel of expelling thousands of Arabs from occupied parts of Jordan. Soviet President Nikolai Podgorny met with Egypt's President Gamal Abdel Nasser Friday night in the fifth round of their Cairo talks. Podgorny left for home today after a three- day visit. * * * Official sources were silent about what was discussed but the Yugoslav daily Borba said the two leader signed a mill' tary cooperation pact. It gave no details. Nasser's army and air force, largely equipped with Soviet weapons, was shattered in the war with Israel June 5-10. A Soviet magazine accused the Egyptian air force command of carelessness in allowing Israeli planes to bomb Egyptian airports and destroy a significant part of the Egyptian air force on the ground.' 1 Yevgeny Primakov, writing from Cairo in the weekly New Times, did not mention that the Egyptian planes were Russian- made. By LEE LINDER GLASSBORO, N.J. (AP) The kids of Glassboro are Impartial. They cheered Soviet Temier Alexei N. Kosygin Friday loud and clear. They whis- led and yelled for President Johnson. When the leaders of the vorld's two most powerful na- ions pasued to chat and shake hands with a few in the crowd at the historic summit meeting, here were squeals of childish delight. Little hands offered the Russian a box of strawberries. They held aloft banners bearing slogans such as, "All the way with LBJ." Dr. Robert R. Spillane, superintendent of Glassboro schools, said he wasn't surprised at the sagacits of his boys and girls. "Our youngsters are more aware of the world situation than we give them credit for," he said. They respect the Russian premier for his position in the world, and that's why they cheered him—to make him wel- :ome here." On Sunday when Kosygin and Johnson return, for the second session of their meeting at Hollybush—the 18-year-old sandstone mansion of President Thomas E. Robinson of Glass- 3oro State College—Johnson likely will be greeted by the town's 86-member high school band. 'If the Secret Service permits it," said Spillane, 'they'll be playing when Johnson steps out of his helicopter. What marked this summit conference was the complete lack of antis: There were no pickets, no antiwar or anti-Corn munist demonstrations, no signi of dissent.

Summit Town Has Nice Reaction josters expressed s h*pe for peace in the world and said Americans want nothing else. This is a middle-class suburban college community, but very few college students were around. Glassboro State has finished its spring semester and summer school doesn't begin until Monday. » * » The kids were out in force, however, climbing trees and to Ihe tops of trucks. Mothers were there loo, many carrying bottle- feeding infants. They stood in the sun, perspiring and burning a little, hoping to see a bit of history. It was like a holiday crowd on a summer picnic. They bought ice cream on a stick and soda pop, balloons and toy planes. Women wore shorts, men light slacks and sports shirts. Some kids weaved through the milling people on bikes and skates. When Johnson strolled around for Kosygin's arrival, he walked in front of Hollybush, waiting where a woman standing in the to the edge of a slight knoll Boys Playing Ball Killed by Lightning BALTIMORE, Md. (AP) David McCartin, 12, and two other boys were catching fly balls batted by a baseball coach Friday afternoon when the boys were struck by lightning. McCartin was killed.
