ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, WED., JAN. 19, 1972 Page 7 Nuclear Aircraft Carrier Joins in Minh Trail Hit SAIGON CAP) - The world's largest warship, the nuclear- powered aircraft carrier Enterprise, returned to the Tonkin Gulf today and her 75 planes Joined the masbive U.S. air campaign against the Ho Chi Minh trail in Laos. President Nixon ordered the 86,000-ton carrier into the Indian Ocean last month for a show of strength in support of Pakistan during the India-Pakistan war. She sailed with a task force from the Tonkin Gulf Dec. 9, started back to Vietnam on Jan. 10 and en route stopped In the Philippines to give her crew shore leave. The Enterprise joined the 75,000-ton carrier Constellation on Yankee Station off the Vietnamese coast, bringing the strike force there back to its normal strength of two carriers. A third carrier, the Coral Sea, left the gulf several days ago for an upkeep period in port that had been postponed while the Enterprise was away. Jets from the Enterprise and the Constellation and from U.S. Air Force bases in Thailand and South Vietnam kept up heavy raids against the Ho Chi Minh trail. Informed sources said they made some 250 strikes today against the enemy supply routes. U.S. B52 bombers also made more heavy strikes for the third day along the border in South Vietnam's central highlands, where an estimated 15,000 North Vietnamese troops are reported massing, possibly for an offensive during the Tet celebration next month and during President Nixon's visit to China. The Stratofortresses also struck in the southern half of the demilitarized-zoner Despite the massive bombing campaign, the Cambodian com- the Communists are conserving their strength for battles in South Vietnam. The South Vietnamese command reported 22 more small- scale North Vietnamese and Viet Cong ground assaults, rocket, mortar and sapper at­ tacks, continuing an enemy "highpoint" of activity now in its 10th day. So far, 239 enemy attacks have been reported. Most of the fighting was along the central and northern coastal plains. Twenty miles northwest of Saigon, a mysterious explosion set off seven tons of ammunition, mostly mortars and grenades, in a South Vietnamese dump. No casualties were reported, and the South Vietnamese command opened an investigation to determine the cause.

Chicago police arrested the men at midnight Monday in Schwnader's North Side apartment. State's Atty. Edward V. Hanrahan of Cook County said in a statement that a week-long investigation disclosed that the two men had formed an organization called "RISE," through which they allegedly planned to poison the area's water supply. He said members of RISE allegedly were to be inoculated against the water poisoning "to form the basis of a new master race." The two students appeared before Judge Robert J. Sulski in Circuit Court.

The Omaha City Council approved Tuesday an agreement with Sorensen and Reuben Kay of Blair to search for the ship. Sorensen said if it is a boat loaded at St. Louis and headed for gold mining fields, it probably would produce valuable artifacts. But, if the steamer is one loaded with whiskey and flour at Omaha, it might not be worth digging for now. Sorensen was involved in the 1968 discovery of another sunken steam in the DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge near Mis- of the agriculture and home economics experiment station for 22 years. He had been hospitalized since last weekend. In addition to his administrative duties, Dean Andre was also called upon by foreign nations as a consultant for agriculture and education. His position at BU cast him in the role of an agricultural leader, and his career spanned one of the challenging eras of American agriculture, highlighted by soaring farm surpluses, and advanced mechanical and chemical technology. One of his few public campaigns came in the 1960s when he became concerned over the use of stronger pesticides by farmers who were fighting a new strain of corn rootworm which resisted conventional insecticides. He was concerned that farmers took proper precautionary measures in using the developing farm chemicals. He completed grade school at New Sharon and graduated from high school at Pasadena, Calif. At BU Dr. Andre received his bachelor of science degree in 1931, a master of science degree in 1933 and his doctorate in 1936. He worked for the U.S. Department of Agriculture's ex- periement stations after receiving his Ph.D. until joining the University of Wisconsin as a professor of economic entomology in 1946. He resigned as assistant dean and director of the college of agriculture at the University of Wisconsin in 1949 and, at the age of 39, returned to ISU and assumed the post he held at the time of his death.
