A check at New York's Italian Fireworks Factory Explotles CERIGNOLA, Italy (UPI) An explosion of unknown origin ripiped through a fireworks factory today in this southern Italian town, police said. The blast killed three of the four men working in the factory, police said. The fourth man was injured. Police said the explosion may have been caused by spontane ous combustion or by careless ness by one of the workers who were preparing a (fireworks display for a celebration planned by the factory owner. Kennedy International Airport Sunday showed that theirs were among a batch of 600 passoprts recently stolen in West Germany. The four had arrived from Milan, Italy, on a Trans World Airlines flight. Immigration authorities turned the group back to TWA for return to Milan, but because flighibs to Milan were booked up, the airline flew them to Frankfurt, Germany, for a transfer flight. Authorities in Frankfurt, however, confiscated the stolen passports and placed the four on the next TWA flight back to New York. When they arrived Monday, immigration authorities ordered them back to Milan, where Italian authorities refused to accept them on grounds they had no papers with which to enter Italy. The seemingly endless flying, which totaled 15,000 miles, came to a halt Thursday afternoon, when the four arrived in New York for the third time and immigration officers decided to clear the esse up. According to Maurice KUey of the Immigration Service, the young Poles "wanted a better way of life, but you can't ask for aslyum merely because you want to leave to go somewhere else. They must have to say I can't live under the government I'm living under because of political or religious oppression." The hearing was scheduled for July 17 ait Manhattan's Immigration Court. Team Release Is Postponed SAIGON (UPI) - The Viet Cong postponed the planned release today of two missing Canadian truce team officers, claiming South Vietnamese government troops are still shelling the area where they are to be released. A Viet Cong spokesman voiced concern that the Canadians, though initially reported in good health, may have suffered from extensive moving around on foot they have been required to do since their disappearance June 28. On the fighting front, the Saigon command reported a sharp upsurge of alleged Communist cease-fire violations. A command spokesman said there were 93 truce infractions in the 24 hours ending at dawn today, the highest number since 92 were reported 12 days ago. The command reported that in eight hours of fighting Friday within seven miles of Kontum, 29 Communists were killed at a cost of three government soldiers dead and 15 wounded. U.N. Secretary Will Visit Middle East By United Press International U.N. Secretary General Kurt Waldheim will visit the Middle East on a personal fact-finding mission in mid-August, the United Nations announced Friday. In related developments, the Beirut newspaper Al Moharrer said today Israel is planning a military operation inside Lebanon to kidnap a number of Palestinian and Lebanese nationalist leaders. In Moscow, Hafez Ismail- national security adviser to President Anwar Sadat of Egypt and the man Sadat calls "my Kissinger" —said today his country and the Soviet Union are in "total accord" on ways of handling the Middle East crisis. U.N. diplomatic sources said Waldheim planned to be in New York for a week of Security Council debate on the Middle East, which was expected to resume July 23 or 24, then make his swing through the Middle East after an Eastern Europe tour. U.S. Warptanes Blast Abandoned Equipment By FREDERICK H. MARKS (miles of the city, the sources said. Three days ago, government PHNOMPENH (UPI) — U.S. warplanes blasted abandoned Cambodian military hardware to keep it from Communists who forced government troops to evacuate defensive positions south of Phnom Penh, military sources said today. The sources said American jets destroyed heavy military equipment left behind Friday when Cambodian troops pulled out of Kompong Kantuot and Kompong Tuol off Highway 3 about 12 miles south of the capital. The pullback marked the end of a short-lived government offensive in the area and brought Phnom Penh's southern defensive perimeter to within 10 troops dropped into the region by helicopter in a counteroffensive designed to push Communist troops back from well-entrenched positions south of the Prek Thanot River. Although the Cambodian soldiers had to retreat, the counter-offensive enabled two trapped battalions at Kampong Kantuot to break free and withdraw behind government lines. The sources said casualties in the pullback were heavy, but they declined to give specific figures. Most of the evacuated troops had to swim across the Prek Thanot River and were exposed to Communist fire. Juan D. Peron Peron Is Ready To Regain Power BUENOS AIRES (UPI) Juan Domingo Peron, the aging populist who personified strongman rule in Latin America, set himself up Friday night for a return to power at an age when most politicans Would be content to write their memoirs. Left Little Doubt The 77-year-old Peron left a nationwide television audience with little doubt that he would be a candidate in special elections to replace resigned President Hector J. Campora. Political analysts said it was virtually certain Peron would win such an election. The former strongman, bags under his eyes, addressed the nation from his suburban Buenos Aires home after his protege — Campora—submitted an "irrevocable" resignation to give Peron a chance to assume! "full, real and formal exercise of his- indisputable leadership." Raul Alberto Lastiri, leader of the chamber of deputies, was sworn in as a provisional president and said he would set a date for new elections within 30 days. Peron ruled Argentina .with an iron Wand from 1946 to 1955, winning the support of workers by adopting one of the most advanced labor codes in the Western Hemisphere. His labor and social legislation, however, brought the country to virtual economic bankrupty and earned him the enmity of the upper classes. Jose Ruoei, head of the five million-member General Workers Confederation, called off the threatened march and strike Thursday night after a meeting with Peron and Campora.
