(UPI) television newsman was beaten and his life tlireatened by a group of armed men Sunday as he tried to film a backwoods meeting for a documentary about the Ku Elux Klan. Bob Wagner, Correspondent for WDSU radio and television, New Orleans, was seized near a farm house about a mile east of Jackson as he and Robert Schaefer of United Press International were scouting the meeting. Wagner has been conducting an investigation of Klan activities for several months and is preparing a documentary program on the Klan in Louisiana. He said he would not press charges against the men who beat him. He was warned that if he told anyone of the beating, he would be killed "within 2-1 hours." Schaefer said Wagner wanted to take movies of about 15 armed guards at the farmhouse gate and posted along a fence. He drove the car, while Wagner sat in the back seat and filmed the men. Wagner was dissatisfied with the footage he had shot, Schaefer said. They stopped about a mile from the farmhouse and Wagner tried to walk near the house to take more movies. In a grove of trees, one of the men stuck an automatic pistol in Wagner's back and ordered him to kneel. Then, Wagner said, the man placed the pistol between his eyes and said: "You've reported your last story." But instead of shooting, he called the other men over. Wagner's camera was confiscated. Thai he was forced to run across a pasture to a parking area, where he was beaten with a leather strap. He said several men took turns beating him. He was forced into a cage normally used to transport hunting dogs and mounted in the back of a pickup truck, taken to the farmhouse and beaten again. He was then released. LANDER, Wyo. (UPI)- The adage "a dog is a man's best friend" may still be true, but Fremont County stockmen have their doubts about it Several, in fact, are waging outright war against man's best friend, and according to Sheriff CA. (Peewee) McDoug- gall, the hostilities are not without provocation. Within the past year, McDou gall said estimates of the number of sheep killed or maimed m Fremont County by dogs "range as high as 500" at a cost to sheepmen of "thousands" of dollars. Last week a dog pack killed or crippled 30 sheep on the Raymond Chapman farm less than a mile from here. The outbreak sent deputies scurrjing into the countryside to set up a line of dog traps and prompted McDougall to teH stockmen to shoot on sight dogs found running loose on their property. The culprits, according to the , sheriff, are not wild—they're just ordinary, tail-wagging domestic t>'pes with diversified I tastes. Some prefer cattle and calves while others go for deer, but most delight in "tearing the hell out of the neighbor's flock of sheep." The dog packs are usually small—seldom more than four members strong. On occasions McDougall said he has followed dogs irom the scene of their depredations back to the owners' doorstep. And once he followed a suspected pet fi-om its home "to a neighbor's house where it picked up a buddy and went into the hills for a deer chase." But proving the crime to a •pet owner is usually more dif ficult. "They will show me their plate to prove how much food the dog gets. "But with these dogs it's just a sport They won't eat a mouthful of meat," said Mc Dougall. Incidents of livestock killmg generally are more frequent during an early-spring epidemic of "cabin fever," which sends the hunters hurrying toward sheep corrals after the long confinements of winter, Mc Dougall said. 17 killed When two Air Force planes collide Jewish Congress in blast at King Hussein JHAMI BEACH (UPI)-The American Jewish Congress said Sunday King Hussein of Jordan cannot "undermine the will of American Jews to maintain their links with IsraeL" King Hussein was visiting in Florida Sunday. The American Jewish Congress, ending its na tional biennial convention, published a message for the king "to take back to the rulers of the Arab world." The message said/'we reaffirm our kinship and "fellowship! with the people of Israel and pledge to intensify our support of .their efforts to enlarge the potential for life and lasting peace for themselves and all the peoples of the Middle I East" Also, in a series of resolutions, the congress urged prompt action on the federal civil rights bill, charged that efforts to amend the Constitution to allow religious practices in public schools was a threat to religious freedom and voiced strong opposition to federal aid WILMINGTON, Ohio (UPI)— for parochial schools. Air Force investigators looked to the wreckage of two C119 aircraft for dues today as to the cause of an in-flight collision which killed 17 men. Two men survived. The pilots and crews of both of the twin-engme "Flymg Boxcars" were among the dead, leaving investigators with the t\\isted and scattered wreckage as the only lead on which to work. The Air Force kept a tight security guard around the open field in which the planes crashed Saturday night, about 10 miles east of here. A routine parachute drop had been called off because of inclement weather and the planes were returning to Clinton County Air Fore Base here when the crash occurred. Tbere were nine C119s in the formation approaching the base. One of the three lead planes col- lidd with another and one burst into flames and exploded. Bodies were scattered about the fields, many of the men being badly burned.

Rope tangles, boy flies behflid baHoon (Continued from page 1) yank, like I was being yanked both ways,'" Danny said. A group of spectators had watched in disbelief as Daony began to lift oH the ground, but one man leaped up and grabbed his feet That was when Danny felt the second jerk. The unidentified man was un able to pull Danny free, but his action probably saved the boy's life. As the man tried to pull Danny back to earth, the rope tightened securely about three [fingers on his left hand. 'I couldn't let go if I wanted to," Danny said. The other spectators, meanwhile, were yelling desperately to attract Berry's attention. But the pilot could hear nothing over the roar of the overhead burners used to propd the balloon. Startled By Plea Finally, at an altitude of 3,000 feet the burners turned off and Berry was startled by Danny's calm plea for help. When Berry saw Danny's predicament he opened the release valve to start the descent and tried to reassure his reluctant passenger. "All right, Danny, now look at me. Don't look down. Keep jlookmg at me." Berry kept repeating these words during the 10-minute descent Berry guided the balloon for a landing in a clump of trees two miles from his take-off pomt Danny fell into a plum tree. A branch snapped his rope and he fell to the groond, shaken up, but without serious injury. Danny admitted his left arm hurt badly as he dangled from the balloon, but doctors say he will not even have to put the arm in a sling when he is released from the hospitaL New chemistry building Pomona gets $650.1 gift for computer Redlands Daily Focffs Hon, April M, 19M - 7 CLAREMONT — A $650,000 gift to Pomona 0)Dege to provide new instruments in the colleges' three Scaver Science Center buildings was announced here today by Dr. E. Wilson Lyon, president of the college. The gift is from the Seaver Institute of which Frank B. Seaver, Los Angeles industrialist, {is president The largest part of the .money will b« used to equip the college's $2,600,000 chemis- |try buildmg now under construction on the campus. The building wiH be dedicated and opened to students next fall, according to Br. R. Nelson Smith, professor of chemistry and chairman of the department at Pomona College. , Pomona College's new chemistry building will be the third structure in the Seaver Science Center which, according to national science authorits, will be "the finest undergraduate liberal arts science center" in the country. Sir. Seaver, a 1905 graduate of Pomona College, has been a member of its hoari of trustees since 1947. His gifts to his alma mater for the Millikan and Seaver Laboratories and the new chemistry building exceed $6,500,000. Mr. Seaver is president of the Hydril Company of Los Angeles. The main item of equipment to be purchased with the Sea ver Institute funds will be a $268,465 IBM System/360 solid logic technology computer with a 2040-D processing unit, one of the first to, be .purchased by any college or imiversity in the nation. The new computer, formally [unveiled April 7 by Intemation al Business Machines execu Itives in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., has been called the "most important product announcement in the company's history." The computer ordered by Po- Imona College uses microelectronic circuits and has a per- jformance range in excess of all current IBM computers. The memory core of the IBM Sys- tem-360 can be easily expanded to store over eight million characters (four times the nomber of characters in the New Testament) Dr. Smith said Pomona (Allege intends to place the IBM equipment in a computer laboratory "with sufficient capacity and flexibility so that the computer can be used as a teaching instrument as well as to t a k e care of the data processing required by the great variety of research problems : under investigation. "This is especially important in a college such as Pomona," Dr. Smith added, "where there are many interdisciplinary programs and a heavy interdependence among the science departments." The latest Seaver gift also will provide the Pomona College science department with a special instrument laboratory comple .T, a neutron generator and associated instrumentation in the radiation laboratories, and supporting services for m- structionai and research activities in the new chemistry building.

Cohn, onetime star of the Anny-McCarthy hearings, and attorney Murray Gottesman on conspiracy charges probably win be set Wednesday, it was announced today. Judge Edward Weinfeld indicated today that he would set a date for a new trial after hearing from both sides Wednes|day. A mistrial, was declared Sunday night on the jury's fourth day of deliberations because of the death of a juror's father. Asst. U.S. Atty. Gerald Wolpin told Weinfeld today there should be an "early and speedy" retrial in the interests of justice. Defense attorneys objected strenuously to a quick retrial because they have other commitments. It was reported that during the afternoon the federal court jury was only one vote short of a unanimous vote for acquittal The jury first received the case last Thursday.
