(Daily News photo by Chuck Ostheimer) Antiwar Vets Take Over Statue of Liberty Today NEW YORK (AP) - Sixteen young antiwar veterans were barricaded inside the Statue of Liberty today, vowing to remain until New Year's Eve in a protest against the continuation of the Vietnam war. "We, as the new generation of men who have survived Vietnam, are taking this symbolic action at the Statue of Liberty in an effort to show support for any person who refuses to kill," the demonstrators said in a statement issued by the Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW). Administrators for the National Park Service, which has jurisdiction over Liberty Island, talked with the group during the night but there was no indication what action officials would take if the men did not leave. Some of the protesters wore military, fatigues and medals, others were in civilian clothes. They mingled with the tourists who took ferryboats to the na­ tional landmark Sunday, then hid at closing time. A night watchman discovered the group about 7 p.m. The group evicted the watchman and used lumber taken from a renovation project inside the statue to barricade the doors. In a statement issued from the VVAW office In Manhattan shortly before midnight, the group said: "We support any action taken by our brothers in Southeast Asia to end the war and we demand that this message be transferred to bur brothers in Southeast Asia." Al Hubbard, national coordinator of the VVAW, said the demonstrators came from an encampment of veterans near Valley Forge, Pa. He said they would not resist with violence if authorities tried to evict them. "There will be no violent confrontation with the police," Hubbard declared. "They will use their resourcefulness to prevent the police from dislodging them. They are in good Thugs Get $60,000 ESTHERV1LLE DAILY NEWS, MON., DEC. 27, 1971 Pag e 3 Fortune Left By Dishwasher COLOGNE, Germany (AP) — Three gunmen held up a bank near the Cologne Cathedral today and drove away with three police hostages as thousands Of spectators and armed police helplessly watched the noontime drama. The gunmen carted with them the mark equivalent of $60,000. The three hostages, all described as high-ranking police, officials, had exchanged themselves for three bank employes. The robbers had taken the em­ ployes hostage after being surprised by the arrival of a police patrol. The patrol shot out three of the tires on the robbers' getaway car. There followed two hours of negotiations between the police and robbers. This ended with the police agreeing to supply a mini-bus as a getaway car and the exchange of police for the original hostages. Then one of the hostages, identified as district Police Chief Hans Krauss, came out of the bank and called out over a megaphone, "Please remain calm." The crowd responded with silence and one of the gunmen quickly followed the police official. Although the trio had been masked when they entered the bank at 10:15 a.m., their faces were uncovered when they came out. The gunmen got into the mini-bus with what appeared to be the cash. The others followed. Werner Hamacher, chief of Cologne's criminal police, got behind the wheel and drove the vehicle away through streets lined with thousands of onlookers. All main routes leaving the city were ordered sealed off and a police helicopter hovered over the area. A cashier in the bank, Theodor Grain, told a newsman: "The three came in around ten o'clock and pulled out submachine guns and ordered everybody in the bank to lie on the floor. The gunmen were nervous at first but later calmed down." Grain said he had no chance to give the alarm, but a customer managed to do so. A patrol car arrived and one of the policemen shot the tires of the getaway car. The patrol withdrew when one of the robbers came out wielding a submachine gun.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Sam Hamilton, a shy, quiet man who spent his declining years as a dishwasher in a mission and a janitor at the stock exchange has left a $300,000 fortune. His bequests became known over the weekend. They include $150,000 to the Life Line Mission in San Francisco and $110,000 to Messiah College in Grantham, Pa. Both are operated by the Brethren in Christ Church. Confirming the bequests, the Rev. Paul Hill, superintendent of the mission, said Hamilton also had willed $1,000 each to more than a dozen friends he had made during the 13 years he lived at the mission. Hamilton entered a convalescent home at Upland, in Southern California, in 1969, and died there last April 4 at the age of 89. The minister said the staff knew that Hamilton had some money but was surprised at the amount. He worked at the Pacific Coast Stock Exchange for many years, and "He apparently picked up some pretty good tips," said Hill. At the mission he paid $50 a month for his room, always in cash, and earned his meals by helping in the kitchen. Nixon-Brandt Talks KEY BBCAYNE, Fla. (AP) — President Nixon has arrived in Florida to meet with West German Chancellor Willy Brandt for the fourth in a series of six summit talks he is having with allied leaders. The American and West German leaders will talk in one of two bayfront homes Nixon owns here. SHST spirits. "The training the Army gave them was very good and prepared them for all eventualities. Reconnaissance teams were sent out to the statue before this action was taken. We are in constant touch with them," he said. Jerry D. Wagers, regional director of the National Park Service, arrived on the island about 1:30 a.m. to talk with James Batman, the resident manager, and the demonstrators. At one point the officials offered to allow the protesters to hold a news conference if they gave up the occupation. There was no immediate indication that the offer would be accepted.
