Army officials, however, minimized the complaints about drugs made by two of the soldiers—Pvt. Allen Barber, Jr. and Pvt. Randall Pittman, both of Lincoln, Neb. Compassionate Reasons If Barber and Pittman are reassigned to the United States, an Army spokesman said, it will be for "compassionate" reasons related to personal problems rather than to their charges of heavy drug use in the U.S. Armored Calvary Squadrons at Amberg, Germany, to which both were assigned in April. The spokesman.said charges made by the third GI, Pvt. John Anderson, of Council Bluffs, Iowa, are being looked into by the Criminal Investigation Division (CID). He said ABOVE ALL MAKE IT WHITE'S ROOFING 342-0185 Anderson would not be forced to go back to Germany if it appeared dangerous for him to do so as a result of the charges he made. All three GIs are still in the United States. Two were temporarily assgined to bases in Kansas—Barber at Ft. Riley and Anderson to Ft. Leavenworth—after their leaves expired, and Pittman will be allowed a temporary assignment at Ft. Riley when his leave runs out Monday, the spokesman said. He said each man will remain in this temporary assignment, drawing full pay and facing no penalties, until his case is decided. I Barber and Pittman last | month asked Nebraska Sens. Roman L. Hruska and Carl T. Curtis, both Republicans, to intervene with the Army in their fight to keep from going back to Germany. The two privates said under any conditions they would refuse to go back. Hruska and Curtis sent a joint letter to Gen. Michael Davison, U.S. Army commander in Europe, asking an investigation. Davison replied with a letter, received by Hruska's office Monday, which said Barber and Pittman appeared to have exaggerated the dimensions of the drug problems at Amberg. • • HI HI ill Governors Avoid * Energy Question Meat on the Menu Cambodian soldiers head back to camp along Highway 4, 18 miles north of Phnom Penh, toting an ox head which will provide them with an evening meal. Supported by American warplanes, Cambodian troops counterattacked north and south of Phnom Penh yesterday, trying to stop Communist troops from moving closed to the capital.

UNIFAX Paris Jet Crash Death Toll Is 122 RAPID CITY, S.D. (UPI) Governors of Midwest states have backed away from hard decisions on what the government should do about the fuel and power problems troubling their areas. The annual Conference of Midwestern Governors, which wound up Wednesday, was ( . | , ll ,. |l , i , |l , l| .,:|l : !3. preoccupied through its four- jj^'ftiiwifipfi da y course with the enef gy .... crisis and the need in the liiH^Wfi^y Midwest to get enough fuel to keep agricultural machinery going. Torpedoed Resolution But the governors, in final action, torpedoed a resolution by Gov. Arthur Link of North Dakota endorsing pending legislation to establish a nationwide power grid system to provide wholesale electric power at what Link called "reasonable rates and with the least impact on the environment." Their reasons were much the same as for an earlier turndown of the resolution of Wisconsin's Gov. Patrick Lucey backing a pipeline to bring Alaskan oil across Canada to midwest terminals. The governors said they felt' they simply did not know enough about the problems and possible solutions to take positive action this year. Resolution Failed Link also failed to push through a resolution asking the governors to oppose federal legislation on state taxation of interstate businesses unless the law would help the state enforce their tax laws. The governors approved a Link resolution supporting an additional $150,000 congressional appropriation to the Army Corps of Engineers for a study on hydro-electric generating capacity for Missouri River dams. • CARD OF THANKS COWAN, MYRA J.

First National First Galesburc National Bank &• Trust / Established 1863 / Member F.D.I .C said it was not Capt. Gilbcrto Araujo da Silva, pilot of the Varig Airlines Boeing 707 jetliner that made a forced landing in a lettuce field near Orly Airport Wednesday with a fire raging aboard. 12 Survivors The death left 12 survivors, all of them crewmen. Investigators today played back tapes from the aircraft's "black box" flight recorder to hear the last communications between the plane and Orly ground control. Aviation au thorities already had made it clear the cause of the crash was a fire that started in the tail section, apparently from a short circuit. Da Silva guided the plane to a difficult emergency landing in a field, missing houses and a major highway, when the fire forced him to land short of the Orly Airport runway though he was only 90 seconds away. Varig said 118 of the victims were passengers, among them an entertainer, the highest- ranking civilian politician in Brazil, a world champion yachtsman and the other four crew members. Brazilian Passengers One crewman was French, but the airline did not report any other foreigners on board. Most of the persons on the passenger list were Brazilian. The disaster, officials said, was caused by a fire that apparently began in a rear toilet of the Varig airlines Boeing 707 and raced the length of the plane in seconds. The cause of the fire itself was not determined. The jetliner was carrying 134 persons on a flight from Sao Paulo to Paris when Da Silva radioed an emergency message to Orly Airport saying, "There is trouble here with reactors." He did not explain what he meant. Fire Aboard With Da Silva's emergency message, Orly officials swung into action, spraying foam on the runway and ordering firemen and ambulances to stand by. "We have fire aboard," Da Silva then radioed. With that, Orly went on red alert. All airport traffic was stopped to let the crippled plane land. It never made it. "He was only 90 seconds ... from the runway," one official said. READ THE WANT ADS! KNOX COUNTY DEMOCRAT CLUB Fish and Chicken Fry Sunday, July 15 ENTERTAINMENT FIREMEN'S PARK WATAGA, ILL.
