(AP) tampered by fain and freezing temperatures, investigators sought today to piece together the details of a private airplane crash that left four soldiers dead. the victims were Army meri stationed at Ft. Hood, Tex., and Ft. Bliss near Si Paso. They were fronald Reid, 25, and Ronald Hunter, 28. both of Ft. filiss. Charles W. McDonald. 2fl. both of Ft. Bliss. Charles W. Mct)onald, 25, and Sgt. Johnny L. Mayfield, both of Ft. Hood. McDonald was listed as the pilot of the Cessha 170. The crash happened near Farm ftoad 112. One piece of wreckage was found a mile away. The Federal Aviation Agency dispatched an investigating team from Fort Worth to seek the cause of the' crash. The plane took off Sunday from El Paso on a flight to Kil- Icen. a Central Texas city near Ft. Hood. Bill Draper, owner of the Draper Funeral Home here, said investigators at first were unable to determine even the original point of impact. Mayficld's body however, was found on a hill a distance from the plane. Draper said. Investigators theorized he was thrown from the craft when it first hit.

Subway Changes Baffle Straphangers NEW VORK (AP) - The Great Day of Adventure for New YotVs straphangers started with a subway traifi getting "lost" and disgorging Us 800 passengers Far. fai" away from where they had hoped they were headed. The day ended with a widespread power failure that caused havoc—including 4,000 riders on four trains trapped for an hour in a tunnel under the East Hiver. In between those snafus Monday was a day of what One city official called "compounded confusion." But the Transit Authority can't change 8 of the 36 subway routes and expect the customers to catch on right away, cten though authority member John J. Gilhooley pronounced New Vorkers "remarkably adaptable." Gilhooley and the other authority member, Daniel T. Scan- noil, cehecked ope rations at the morning and evening rush hours and pronounced trie changeover 'about W per cent effective" They estimated that the major effects of the changes were fell by at least 200,660 Of the 2.25 million persons who use the sub- ways daily. The route and station changes --New York's first major subway reorganization in 27 years —went into effect Sunday, but the real impact was not felt un, til the start of the work week I Monday. The major goal is to : carry passengers more quickly and more directly between dis- ; (ant points. Before Monday's biggest foul; ups—intermittent power failures, stalled trains and jammed station platforms—Gilhooley said: "Thr fates were not with us today. Tomorrow will be bet- 1 ler, we hope."

U.S. intelligence believes this is a major aim of the Communists designed to give them a psychological victory in both the United Slates and Vietnam. There are approximately 22 million war veterans in the U.S. by the U.S. Command: enough for the fight. y me u.o. uuumionu. ~"—o-- — — • r • , r The Communists long ago de- The Communists in weeks of cided they could not grab and' labor honeycombed the area hold strategic real estate in the around Dak To with deep bunk- face of American firepower and' ers. communication trenches mobility.

Months of pacification work can be rolled back overnight if the Viet Cong are able to strike at points weakened by such troop drains. There is also speculation at top U.S. Command levels that the Communists are experimenting with new infantry tactics built around such heavy weapons as large rockets and mortars. Officers discount a theory that K experience holds, the Communists will counterpunch hard at isolated' units but will duck long battles putting them at a severe disadvantage due to full use of American firepower and mobility, Over the months fighting at the demilitarized zone has been the roughest of the war.
