Peron, considered a shoo-in to regain power in elections next month, said Sunday he was not sure yet whether he would seek the presidency. The 77-year-old Peron said he would make up his mind only after consulting his doctors. Peron was nominated, as expected, as a candidate Saturday by the Justicialista party and his wife Isabel, a onetime cabaret dancer, was nominated for the vice presidency. Peron returned home in June from Spain after 18 years in .exile and political experts Tunnel Falls On Train In Texas QUITAQUE, Tex. (UPI) The last railroad tunnel in Texas collapsed on a train during the weekend. Railroad officials said Sunday $1 million will be spent extracting the wreckage and, probably, turning the tunnel into a gorge. "We're going up there tomorrow (Monday) and we got some big equipment...some big cate- pillars," said C. J. May, district supervisor for the Fort Worth and Denver Railroad. "We're going to see if we canj leave the tunnel or not. We'll either take the top off that! tunnel or dig in there and get the cars. It's going to be kinda complicated. I believe we're 1 going to take the top off it." The 98-car freight was heading east from Lubbock t6 Corsicana Saturday. Fifty cars had passed through the tunnel when 14 cars derailed inside thp 740-foot West Texas tunnel. "The cars tore up 450 to 500 feet of rails. Most of the tunnel is still in good shape. <. consider him certain to run and certain to win. As he left his villa Sunday and went for a drive, newsmen asked him when he would announce his decision. "After I talk with the doctors," Peron said. He spent most of last month confined to his house with what doctors called an "influenza vims" and still is visited every day by doctors, one of them heart specialist Pedro Cossio. Peron also declined to discuss his wife's nomination for vice president. "My wife has to decide," Peron said. "It's a question for her, not me. I don't interfere in these things." But he added,J'In the case of India and at least 10 other countries, women are not only vice presidents but heads of state. It apparently is the fashion." Mrs. Peron, 40, ducked questions about her candidacy. 'I believe," she said, "I explained quite clearly in the convention." She told the party she and her husband needed a few days to consider the nominations. Return to Office The Sept. 23 elections were called specifically to open the way for Peron's return to the office he lost in a military coup 18 years ago. But political sources said his wife may feel compelled to turn down the second spot—as did her predecessor, the late Eva Peron, who was nominated in 1951 by proclamation to run as vice president with Peron. Under military pressure, she renounced the Candidacy; The only opposition candidate so far is Juan Carlos Coral; the leader of the Socialist Workers party, which won less than one per cent of the vote in March when a Peron protege, Hector J. Campora, won by a landslide. Campora resigned July 13 to allow new elections with Peron as a candidate. Military Commissary Prices Criticized by Congressman WASHINGTON (UPI) - Rep.

The American victims were identified as Albert Kerson, 55, of Union, N.J., and Mrs. Jeanie Salantis, 23, of Highland Park, N.J., whose husband Basil, 24, was among the wounded. Hostages Seized Police, said they, have not identified the third victim, a 50- year-old man. Passengers caught in the attack were those scheduled to leave on a Swissair flight to Geneva and a Trans World Airtyays (TWA) flight to New York. The New York plane was ;4oading and only a few of the passengers managed to clear the lounge and reach the plane safely before the Arabs struck. Police declined to speculate on whether the Arabs might have mistaken the New York and Geneva-bound passengers for passengers on another TWA flight headed to Tel Aviv. It departed without incident 10 minutes after the attack began. After their attack the Arabs seized between 35 and 40 persons hostage behind the lounge bar but released them unharmed and surrendered to police two hours later after demanding without success to see the ambassador of the United Arab Republic. Officials identified the two as Zemod Mohamed, 23, and Talaat Hussam, 21, both listed as Palestinians. ,.

MOSCOW (UPI) - The Soviet Union said today it has launched another spaceship to Mars, the third in 16 days ^ ^ Western experts said the latest busTness craft may land on the Red Planet. The news agency Tass said Mars 6,. carrying both Soviet and French scientific equipment, was launched Sunday and is scheduled to reach the vicinity of Mars in early March, 1974. Mars 4 was launched July 21 and Mars 5 on July 25. Tass said Mars 6 differs somewhat in design from the two previous spaceships.

However, Aspin said, Pentagon regulations defeat the purpose of the law by allowing commissaries to operate; wherever there are stores; With prices 20 per cent highef than commissary prices. "Despite the clear rflandate of the law, the Pentagon continues to operate dozens of these stores in apparent violation of the law," Aspin said. Pentagon Critic The Wisconsin congressman, a frequent critic of the Pentagon, said there are 278 military commissaries in the United States doing an annual of $2 billion and costing the taxpayers "hundreds of millions of dollars a year" in subsidies. Aspin said the Defense Department was seeking $17.9 million this year to build new commissaries. He said he was asking the General Accounting Office (GAO), the investigatory arm of Congress, to look into |the operations. The GAO should find out, Aspin said, whether the Department of Defense regulations and their enforcement "are within the scope of the law and how many stores should be closed down." He said a GAO study conducted in 1964 showed that half the commissaries in the United States should be shut idown.
