Communists Fire On Team ers» SAIGON (UPI) - Two International truce team helicopters were fired on from Communist-held territory while on a mission in northern South Vietnam today and Canadian Ambassador Michel Gauvin termed the shooting a "deplorable act." A Canadian member of the International Commission of Control and Supervision (IOCS) said the two IOCS helicopters were fired on as they left Quang Tri City 400 miles north of Saigon. Gauvin told reporters: "I don't know yet the details of the shooting but it Was a deplorable act." The attack today caused no damage and no one was Injured, he said. Two American civilian pilots were aboard the helicopters. Informed sources said they were not blaming the Communists for the ground fire today, but said it "definitely came from the Communist side of the (Thach Han) River." Official ICCS doubts about security arrangements for helicopters earlier today blocked the release of 400 Communist civilian prisoners held by Saigon. On the fighting front, the Sp.igon- government reported heavy battling in'the northern part of the country and a Saigon command spokesman reported 103 violations of the cease-fire in the 24 hours ending at noon today, highest total in two weeks. It brought to 12,670 the total Communist violations since the truce began Jan. 28, the spokesman said. The Viet Cong has accused the government of more than 80,000 violations. The helicopter incident occurred over territory Communists hold within a half mile of the Thach Han River, which flows along the edge of Quang Tri City. The mission was authorized by the Viet Cong, but there were no Viet Cong liaison officers aboard. Geoffrey Charlebois, senior Canadian representative at the ICCS headquarters in Hue, said he witnessed the shooting. The pilots of the two helicopters apparently were unaware of the automatic weapons fire, Charlebois said but when he saw it, he contacted them by radio and ordered the aircraft to return immediately. An informed source said the helicopters were marked with the fluorescent green stripes of the ICCS. They were operated by ICCS Air Services, a subsidiary of Air America, the U.S. government contract airline in Indochina. After the shooting today, the ICCS team was stranded at the site and the Communists refused an ICCS request to pick them up by road, sources said. Lt. Col. Le Trung Hien, a Saigon command spokesman, said the government was unable to go ahead with its prisoner release today at Loc Ninh, 75 miles north of Saigon, because the ICCS refused to fly to the scene to oversee the repatriation. AIM Pleads Case Jim. Burnett, a local American IndianMove- ment spokesman, tries to convince members of the Rosebud Indian Reservation Tribal Council to allow the burial of Frank Clearwater on the reservation. The council finally agreed to specify a "location for the burial of Clearwater, Who died of injuries sustained while he was an occupant at Wounded Knee, S. D. UNIFAX News Blackout Keeps Indian Sessions Secret PINE RIDGE, S.D. (UPI) Federal negotiator Richard Hellstern has announced a blackout of all news pertaining to negotiating sessions in the 64-day-old impasse at Wounded Knee. He declined to answer newsmen's questions concerning the reason for it. However, it was understood that American Indian Movement (AIM) leaders at Wounded Knee have protested the former government policy of holding news conferences expressing the government's view of negotiating sessions. Newsmen have not been permitted into the besieged hamlet to interview AIM leaders since March 27. Hellstern refused to confirm reports that a negotiating session was held Tuesday near Wounded Knee. However, he and other federal negotiators were absent from the government's headquarters in the Bureau of Indian Affairs Building in Pine Ridge Tuesday afternoon. Negotiations have stalled for two days because of a dispute over burial of the body of Frank Clearwater, 47, an AIM militant fatally wounded two weeks ago. Clearwater's body was taken to the neighboring Rosebud Sioux Reservation Tuesday for burial but the services were held up over a dispute between the burial party and the Rosebud Sioux government over the title of the land on which the body was to be buried. The burial party, which included AIM leader Vernon "Safety Begins With You" "Where You Work, Drive, Play and Live" THE KNOX COUNTY SAFETY COUNCIL HAS PROGRAMS AVAILABLE IN: 1r Bicycle Safety -fa Lawn Mower Safety Artificial Resuscitation: "Tammie" if Highway Safety Farm and Home Help The Council, Help You To 'Think" Sofety in 1973 ill FOR INFORMATION CALL: Don Ted 342-5108 Harvey Lightbody 343-0141 REMEMBER SAFETY BEGINS WITH YOU!!!!

If you're concerned about health, and you care about flavor, you've got a problem. And Mazola Margarine can help solve it. Here's why. More and more, heart specialists are urging Americans to limit saturated fats and cholesterol in our diets. The evidence. Many heart specialists agree there is encouraging evidence that people (even people with an inherited tendency toward heart disease) can substantially reduce the possibility of heart attacks if we plan our diet to control blood cholesterol levels; avoid smoking cigarettes; maintain normal weight; exercise regularly and get medical care if we have diabetes or high blood pressure. One authoritative guide puts it this way: "The typical American diet is rich in eggs, which are high in cholesterol; and meats, butter, cream and whole milk, which are high in animal (saturated) fats. These foods tend to raise the level of cholesterol in the blood, and a high blood cholesterol level contributes to the development of atherosclerosis, a form of hardening of the arteries. Atherosclerosis is the condition that underlies most attacks." The secret of Mazola's buttery flavor. One easy way to cut down on saturated fats is to cut down on butter. Easy in theory. But in practice, how many margarines really taste good? All margarines try to taste like butter. But Mazola does more. Mazola Margarine doesn't settle for tasting like butter.
