Policemen began carrying machine guns, shotguns, rifles and tear gas Thursday night in addition to pistols and night sticks to combat roving bands of vandals, looters, and snipers. The Chicago Transit Authority shut down bus and elevated train service in the area and police blocked off most main thoroughfares in an effort to stem the looting and gunfire. In one of the most violent incidents Thursday night, more than 100 policemen exchanged shots in an hour-long encounter with snipers in two high rise apartment buildings. Police finally moved in and cleared out both buildings. ' Police filed charges today of conspiracy to commit treason against 13 of 20 persons arrested in the basement of one building raked by race rioting.

(AP) -Weather experts said today that if tropical storm Cclia continues on its present course it could threaten Monday's scheduled launching of the Gemini 10 astronauts on a double rendezvous and space walk flight. Space agency meteorologists expressed concern as the Gemini 10 pilots began an extensive physical examination expected to give them medical clearance for the launching. The weathermen said that Cclia churning some 900 miles southeast of Cape Kennedy remained a poorly organized and ill - defined storm, but that an expected move toward the north, away from land, had not materialized. If there is a delay, it would be for two days, until Wednesday, officials said. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration said the storm would be studied this afternoon at a meeting of Gemini officials to discuss all phases of the flight. A medical team headed by Dr. D. Owen Coons, astronaut physician, planned a 4 1-2-hour examination to day of Navy Cmdr. John W. Young and Air Force Maj. Michael Collins. Young and Collins are to ride a Titan 2 rocket into space at 6:21 p.m. EDT Monday, 100 minutes after an Atlas boosts an Agena target satellite into orbit. Foreign Aid Bill Passes House Without Slashes WASHINGTON (APi - The House has authorized the administration's $3.3 billion two-year foreign aid program after beating back by two voles a Republican-led attempt to limit it to one year and slash it by $250 million. The measure, authorized by a 237-146 vote, now goes to the Senate which is considering a one-year foreign aid bill. If the Senate approves the measure in that form, a House-Senate Conference Committee will be convened to work out the differences. Actual funds depend on appropriations measures to be considered later. Four Republicans teamed up with the bill's supporters to defeat 193 to 191 a motion to re-commit the measure to the House Foreign Affairs Committee and cut the development loan fund from $1 billion to 2750 million. Rep. Ogden R. Rcid, R-N.Y., explained that he voted against the motion because "the longer term will save money and you need long-time planning." The other Republicans who voted against the motion were Reps. Joseph W. Martin Jr. and Silvio O. Conte of Massachusetts and Stanley R. Tupper of Maine. Airline Strike Talks Stalemated WASHINGTON (AP) - Negotiators for the machinists union and five struck airlines try again today to settle the eight-day-old airline strike, but both sides agree they are as far apart as ever.

Robinson is unmarried and lives with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Robin.-on. He has two brothers, John, 26, a city fireman and James, 21. CHICAGO (AP) Police hoped a petite Filipino girl would be well enough today to tell them the details of the night of horror when eight of her girlfriends were butchered. Her dark, wide-set eyes, first beheld the nightmare scene but she was too hysterical to give a co herent account. Corazon Amurao, 23, an exchange student, is the only witness and survivor of the slaughter during Wednesday night of eight student nurses in a town house that served as a dormitory. She was heavily sedated after giving a fragmentary account of the night. Her story, a sweat-soaked man's undershirt, and the blood-splashed, clothing-strewn house full of fingerprints were the pitifully meager leads. The nurses were slain one by one by strangling, stabbing, or both. One girl's windpipe, carotid artery and jugular vein were cut. Tests to find if the girls were sexually molested were incomplete, although one girl was naked and five others in various stages of undress. "We've got a subanimal here," said .Police Cmdr. Francis Flanagan of the killer. '"I've never seen anything more horrible than this." Miss Amurao escaped the massacre by rolling under a bed. She lay there, unmoving, until 5 a.m., when the ringing of an alarm clock shattered the deathly silence. Thinking that the noise might have frightened away the murderer, she waited another 20 minutes or so, then wriggled free from strips of bed sheeting with which she had been bound. She stumbled to a second-floor bedroom window and burst outside to a ledge, screaming for help. Police talked to .Miss Amurao for an hour, but she was so hysterical that doctors cut off the questioning. From the girl's fragmentary account, police searched for a man with short, probably crew-cut hair, slender and about six feet tall. "I could fill Soldier Field with men who fit that description," Flanagan said. But, he added, Miss Amurao said she could identify the killer. Acting on the vague description, police launched a massive manhunt, set up roadblocks, hauled in a half dozen suspects for questioning. None panned out. Forty policemen were assigned to the investigation full-time and the FBI worked on the case. This is how Flanagan reconstructed the crime from Miss Amurao's fleeting account and from the scene. "ix girls were in the house. The intruder's knock on a bedroom door awakened Miss Amurao between 10:30 p.m. Wednesday and midnight. She answered the knock, was , confronted by a man holding a knife and pistol. He herded all six girls into the back bedroom upstairs and bound them with 1 1-2-inch-wide strips of bed sheeting. The other two girls who lived in the dormitory, and Miss Marianne Jordan, arrived later. They, too, were forced into the back room, and similarly trussed. Then came the massacre. The girls Explosives Plant Rocked by Blasts, One Man Injured , CARTHAGE, Mo. (AP) - Another explosion ripped the Hercules Powder Co. plant near Carthage early today as demolition experts were preparing to inspect the already shattered plant. It was the ninth blast at the sprawling, 1,200-acre plant since noon Thursday when shock waves reached Kansas City, 140 miles north, and Tulsa, 125 miles southwest. The latest blast occurred shortly after 2 a.m. about one hour after a man was heard calling for help in the plant. A rescue party pulled out Maurice Crowell of Carthage. All of his clothing except his shoes were gone. He was hospitalized in critical condition. About 50 other persons were injured, most of them by flying glass as windows were smashed miles away. A company spokesman set the replacement value of the plant at million to i million, and estimated that 85 per cent of the plant was destroyed. Police said at least 45 homes around the plant were destroyed or haenly damaged. Robert Good, plant manager, said the rest of the employes on the job had been .accounted for. Gov. Warren E. Hearnes called out Jhe National Guard and residents in a three-mile radius were moved from their homes. Jack D. Hayes, Hercules rice president, said the p'ant makes dynamite, nitroglycerin and fertilizers but does lot produce any munitions. CHICAGO (AP) - The Illinois National Guard was called out today as three nights of disorders on Chicago's West Side swelled into full-scale rioting with sniping, looting and ex S. Glens Falls Bank Is Held Up, Is Taken SOUTH GLENS FALLS. N.Y. (AP) A slender gunman made off with $15,000 today from the South Glens Falls branch of the First National Bank of Glens Falls today. Joe Barnes, assistant vice rresi dent ol the bank, said the man shoved a pistol in front of teller Scott M. Tallman, 20, and ordered him to fill a paper bag with money "He panicked when I stood up," Barnes said, "and he ran out the front door and kept on running through hedges, shrubbery and around the corner." Barnes said there were no customers in the bank when the gunman entered. Police set up roadblocks near the bank and checked traffic crossing a bridge linking South Glens Falls, a village of 3,000, and Glens Falls. The teller admitted he was "scar ed" when the gunman ordered him to "fill it up" and then to "step it up, buddie." Tallman said he had put the larger bills in the bag first and was start ing on the ones, when the gunman fled. The gunman ran down a side street toward a residential section. Police theorized he had an auto parked on the side street. Athens Minister Resigns; Plans Further Study (Picture on Page 5) Rev.

Wall Street was still showing no particular concern about rising interest rates. In fact, an advance in the discount rate by the Federal Re serve Board was generally expected because it would be in line with rates already put into effect by bank ers.
