UNIFAX Faulty Approach Pattern Blamed for Boston Crash BOSTON (UPI) - A faulty approach pattern may have contributed to Tuesday's fatal crash of a Delta DCS jetliner, which killed 88 persons, a spokesman for the National Transportation Safety Board said today. "We already know the plane was too low, more than a half mile from the touchdown point on the runway," the spokesman said. In addition, the craft was about 40 or 50 feet to the right of the runway. Mrs. Isabel Burgess, the member of the safety board who is heading up the investigation, today denied earlier reports that noise pollution factors may have been involved in a bad approach to the runway. "The fact is," she said, "I was quoted out of context. There's nothing to it." Clues From Tapes She added that investigators hoped to listen to the control tower iapes latere today and would pick up the jet engines in hopes of finding clues into the cause of the crash. 'Mrs. Burgess said the investigation thus far shows that the aircraft was not properly aligned with the runway and was coming in at an angle during its approach at Logan Airport in heavy fog. Also, state police scuba divers discovered an unda­ maged section of engine housing in Boston Harbor, about 50 feet from the airport shoreline, indicating the craft may have hit the water before striking a portion of the sea wall and disentegrating alongside runway 4R. Heavy Impact Shreds of metal also have been found among boulders along the lower outside portion of the seawall, officials said, One airlines spokesman said, "To be wedged in like that, there would have to be a heavy impact there." Several fishermen in the area at the time of the crash have reported hearing sounds which might have been the plane striking the water. "It was sort Guerrilla Theater Guerrilla theater actors bind their hands defendants are not to talk with reporters after gagging themselves as they prepae for a during the trial.

UNIFAX Ulbricht Epitaph Stirs Controversy of like crump, crump, crump," said Edward D. Movitz of Weston, who was fishing from Castle Island pier, directly across the harbor from the* airport. The sole survivor of the crash has been able to shed little light on the cause of the disaster. "One passenger can seldom give very meaningful information unless he saw something unusual," Brad Dunbar, a spokesman, said after a meeting of the investigating board. The survivor, Leopold Chouinard, 20, of Marshfield, Vt., remained in critical condition at Massachusetts General Hos pital. He was conscious and able to talk with an investigator and relatives Wednesday. Congress Votes To Expel Top U. S. Diplomat BUENOS AIRES (UPI) Members of the lower house of Congress unanimously voted Wednesday to expel the top U.S. diplomat in Argentina on grounds he interfered in proposed laws on foreign investment. (Members of the Chamber of Deputies stood to sing the Argentine national anthem after voting for the expulsion of Max.V. Krebs, who is charge d'affairs and in the absence of vacationing Ambassador John D. Lodge the top U.S. envoy in the country. Admits Error The action came after Krebs admitted he erred in sending embassy memorandum to Economic Minister Jose Gelbard warning of "adverse effects" if proposed laws on foreign investment were approved. Krebs said he sent the warnings "at the suggestion of government employes." He did not identify them. The Chamber of Deputies < vote does not mean automatic expulsion for Krebs. It was a request that the government of President Raul Lastiri order Krebs to go. Longtime Specialist Krebs, 57, a native of Cincinnati, took up his post in Buenos Aires in 1971. He is a longtime specialist in Latin American diplomacy. McALESTER, Okla. (UP!) The convict who knifed a fellow inmate to death at the Oklahoma State Penitentiary roamed freely among the 750 other prisoners today because authorities don't think it is worth the risk to "rescue inmates who can't get along themselves." The prisoners rioted during the weekend, burned much of the prison, causing $20 million damage, and are now being held in an open prison yard while the cells are being repaired. Three inmates died in the riot, and the fourth was stabbed to death Wednesday in sight of state police and National Guardsmen. The police and militia were ordered not to attack because prison officials believed it would only cause more deaths. "Officers could have gone in and tried to rescue that man but we would have killed any number of men to do it," said Ed Hardy, press secretary to Gov. David Hall. Fourth Victim The latest victim of the prison violence, Charles Palmer, 34, was serving a 125-year sentence for robbery of an Oklahoma City grocery store in which he took $155. He was stattoed in the prison yard early Wednesday. Hardy said authorities knew who Palmer's killer was. He is still in that crowd of inmates. The troopers are keeping an eye on him," Hardy said. "We've got 750 men in | there and we're not going to lose a couple of highway patrolmen to rescue some inmates who can't get along among themselves. 'We haven't got any way to keep them from killing each lother if that's what they want to do." Safeguards Needed In another development, the union representing 250 prison employes complained that the guards have not been given safeguards needed to protect their lives. The Oklahoma Legislature denied the union bargaining powers earlier this year. BERLIN (UPI) - A last controversy swirled around Waller Utoidht today, just the sort of brawl the goateed Stalinist loved. It concerned a fitting epitaph for the man who built the Berlin Wall and made East Germany a powerhouse police state. Ulbricht died Wednesday of heart failure at age 80 and a dispute over his life immediately divided right down East-West lines. "He was a most dreadful I man," said Hugh D. Trevor' Roper, an eminent British historian and German expert, "the hardest of hard-liners." "He wias an outstanding figure of the International Communist movement, a great friend," said the Soviet news agency Tass. President Tito of Yugoslavia, never a friend of the humorless Stalinist in life, mourned his death as "a great loss." Czechoslovak radio broadcast the "sad news" to a nation that remembers Ulbricht as a staunch supporter of the 1968 Warsaw Pact invasion. West German President Gustav Heinemana sent the tersest possible condolence message for the man who kept the Germanies divided with an iron will. "I express my sympathy at the death of Walter Ulbricht," it said. Most Unattractive "I knew Ulbricht well and met him many times," said Richard Crossman, a former British cabinet minister. "He was one of the ablest and most unattractive of all top Communists. Only a German would be so cruel to his own countrymen as Ulbricht was to the people of East Germany." But his own nation, led by the younger men who eased him out of political power in 1971, ensured that Ulbricht would go to rest as an honored national hero with none of the "unper­ son" stigma the outside world associates with such fallen Communist titans as the late Nikita S. Khrushchev. ROSEVILLE - A total of 65 entries in the Roseville Quas- quicentermial parade has been received.
