No weapon was found in either case. Cole said it was impossible to determine how much money was taken from Chun.

Chun's body was discovered in the bedroom of his living quarters by Lt, Jack Dews of the Camden police, who entered the unlocked store after spotting smoke inside the building. The smoke came from Chun's bed, which apparently had been set afire by his assailant. The body was on the floor at the foot of the bed. Cole said the murder apparently took place between 11 p.m., when Chun normally closed the store on Saturdays, and 12:50 a.m., when Dews found him, Pieces of glass were found imbedded in Chun's scalp, and Daws picked up the necks of nine broken soft drink bottles. Chun lived alone.

Are Under Investigation By JO ANN HACKER Associated Pt ess Writer SKULL VALLEY, Utah (AP) « An investigation to determine what killed some 6,400 sheep in this desolate, semlarld western Utah valley continued today as ranchers moved Into the pas* hires to shoot other suffering sheep, In the past 10 days sheep began dying by the thousands and several qualified veterinarians have linked their deaths to nerve gas testing at the Army's Dugway Proving Ground adja* cent to the rangeiand, Dr« Mar Fawcett. one of two veterinarians called to the Hatch Ranch-which has sus* tained more than 90 per cent of the loss—said, "f have no doubts at all that organic phos* phate poisoning from nerve gass testing killed the sheep/' He said he based this on lab tests at Utah State University and on private study, U was several days after the sheep began dying that Army officials withdrew their original denial and said "routine nerve gas" spray had been tested at Dugway March 13. Fawcett said, "I'm sure if we had known about the testing and had an antidote, many of the sheep could have been saved.' 1 Had the Army reported the tests on March 17 when they were Informed of the deaths, Fawcett said many of the sheep could have been given the Army nerve gas antidote atropine. Army investigators contend "all results so far are Inconclusive," and that it cannot be proven the sheep died because of nerve gas testing done at Dugway. Loss has been estimated at $300,000. In addition, the wool crop is lost and about 80 per cent of the dead sheep would have lambed In a month.

Wonts to Go to Rome VIENNA (AP) - An authoritative source said today that Hungary's Joseph Cardinal Min- dszenty has changed his mind about maintaining his self-imposed exile in the U.S. Embassy in Budapest and now wants to go to Rome, But the Informant said Hun* garian authorities, who earlier displayed "great interest" in having the Roman Catholic prelate leave, have cooled toward that idea, making an early solution of the cardinal's case unlikely, The informant said, "The cardinal now holds the view It would be better if he left Hungary, because he could do a lot more abroad than he can do there." Earlier/ Cardinal Mindszenty repeatedly turned down invitations by the Pope to como to Rome, saying he preferred to remain in Hungary, Cardinal Mindszenty will be 76 next Friday, It will be the 12th birthday he has celebrated in the U.S. Embassy, where he sought sanctuary when the Hungarian revolution was smashed Nov. 4, 1956. ffcfiff Ifory of Stalinism Purge Told §y HANKS HEUERBOURo Associated Press Writer PfcAGue, (AP) - the Brit- ish'bof ft widow of one of Czechoslovak's victims of Stalinism Said today the truth about the ble&dy purges of the early 1950's should now be told, "The whole ease must be properly cleared op," Mr, Ma* nan Sling said in an interview. "1 do flat want Any revenge, any political trial. But it is Important for the youth, for the entire country, that the full truth is toM," Mrs, Sling, 55, is the widow of Otto Sting, hanged in 1952 to* gether with former party Secretary General Rudolf Slansky and several other leading Communists, They were partially cleared posthumously in a 1963 probe, but Mrs, Sling said it "did not go into the question who was be* hind ail this,..and left my husband with a political stigma." The outspoken Oxford graduate also told of how she and her husband were arrested, how she spent a long solitary confinement and was exposed to brainwashing, "1 never despaired of socialism," she said, however. "I think all of us who went through such experiences have always continued to believe in socialism as the only possible solution for the future of society, We knew this was not the fault of socialism but the fault of the way it was carried out.'' Under the new anti-Stalinist leadership, full rehabilitation of Sling and other victims of the purges is regarded as a formality. •', •: , / - .." •: ..y A special party commission has been established and is expected to announce soon the official posthumous restoration of party membership. An investigation into the background of the purges Is also under way. LoNtJOH (AP) - Ataft Clore, the 2iJ*yaSr<wd soft 6f millionaire Milder ..._.
