10 (Sfolesbura Reai $rer-MoiI, Golesburg, Soturdoy, Moy 5, 1973 Town Celebrates Return of POW WMLOCK, Wash. (UPI) ~ Santa Claus rode down Main Street on a fire engine past holiday decorations and lights Friday in this small town's celebration of "Christmas in May" for a returning prisoner of war. The town's entire population of 978 people turned out to cheer Air Force Maj. Edward Leonard Jr. as he drove through the four blocks of downtown Winlock in an open car. The uniformed officer, who spent five years in a North Vietnamese prison camp, waved, smiled, saluted and occasionally brushed tears from his eyes. Christmas decorations were draped along the street, windows bedecked with holiday lights held signs reading, "Happy Holidays, Ed," "Peace on Earth" and "Welcome Home," and the high school band played carols at a parking lot reviewing stand. Santa Claus arrived aboard the town's fire truck with its siren wailing to cap the springtime Christmas party, organized by townspeople after Leonard told newsmen on his release that the thing he missed most as a POW was Christmas. Leonard told cheering welcomes, in a nearly inaudible voice, that he' was overcome and overjoyed" by the celebration. "There is so much in my heart I cannot say. God bless you all and Merry Christmas." The Air Force major, shot down over Laos in 1968 while flying a prop-driven Skyraider on a rescue mission, received a key to the city from Santa Claus, a sterling loving cup from townspeople, a scrapbook presented by grade school children carrying hand-colored American flags, and a plaque from the Lions Club. Leonard, whose parents live in Winlock, had been under care at Travis Air Force Base Hospital in California since his return to the United States and an earlier Christmas celebration originally planned for April had to be postponed.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said the recalled mustard greens were packaged by Southern Frozen Foods of Montezuma, Ga., and distributed principally in Tennessee, Georgia, Arkansas, Texas and Virginia by the Kroger Co. of Cincinnati, Ohio. Kroger could not estimate how many of the 10-ounce "finest peeled pear- shaped tomatoes in heavy puree," the 28-ounce cans were produced by Milos Citrus and Fruits Product Co., Nahariya, Israel, and distributed by First National Stores Inc., Somerville, Mass., in New England states and New Jersey and New York. The firm said the swelling in the cans was caused by an unidentified slow - growing micro-organism. The Four-H Corp. of Imlay City, Mich., recalled more than 200 cases of canned mushrooms because of swollen cans, according to the FDA. The mushrooms, labeled Election Expense Town Hall Expense Town Officers' Expense Other Services and Expenses 154.55 45.00 544.15 209.00 Total Expenditures $ 8,886.1 Total Receipts $ 20,029.61 Total Expenditures ..$ 8,886.89 packages were involved, but it "Imlay brand pieces and stems included all lots on retail mushrooms," were distributed shelves, the FDA said. Some 13,000 cases of canned tomatoes were recalled because of swollen and rusty cans. in Illinois and Michigan in four- ounce cans. There was no indication what caused the swelling ,cans, the FDA said. Ex-Convict Dies In Jail Escape FORT LAUDERDALE/ Fla. (UPI) — Using a tiny concealed pistol, an ex-convict and his younger brother tried to break out of the city jail Friday and wounded two policemen. The escape attempt ended with the convict dead. A blast of buckshot killed Richard Hyder, 32, as he and his brother tried to make their way out of the jail and to a waiting car, using a wounded officer as a hostage. Police said Hyder was known widely in south Florida as a man who had sworn never to be taken alive again by police. Both Hyder and his brother, Lee, about 26, were fugitives wanted on armed robbery charges, police said. They were spotted in a Fort Lauderdale bar along with two other men Friday afternoon by two off-duty officers who called fellow policemen to the scene. The officers took a pistol from each of the men and arrested them without incident. They were searched again on arrival at the jail. Once inside, however, Richard Hyder pulled his hidden automatic pistol. Police said a single shot wounded officer Fred Holmes* in the hand and then hit officer Fred Hollowell in the stomach. Hollowell was reported in good condition and Holmes' wound was minor. Acting Police Chief Leo Callahan said Holmes had offered to act as a hostage to guarantee the safe conduct of the brothers out of the jail so doctors could treat Holloway. Callahan said after a quick conference with fellow officers, he determined "that this thing had to end here within the police building if at all possible." Police agreed to leave an unmarked car at the front door and clear nearly 100 officers with rifles and shotguns away from the building. Callahan said he secretly stationed several officers at key locations inside the building. Hyder spotted one of the hidden officers and swung to fire at him. Callahan said Hyder went down with a shotgun blast in the chest and at least one pistol bullet. Lee Hyder suffered a gash on the head which Callahan said he received when he "bit the dust" to avoid the gunfire and bumped his head. Richard Hyder was convicted of two armed, robberies in Florida in 1962 and later was also sentenced for a third holdup. He had escaped from a mental hospital and was wanted on two counts of armed robbery in Houston and at least two more in Florida. It was not known what offense Lee Hyder was wanted for.
