NY ;AP, Hieh-altjtud? explosions, some f-qual in force to a 100-ton dynamite blast, have been shatterim: windows and scaring resi- aVr.'.s from Connecticut to South Carolina The explosions have scientists baffled William Donn, who conducts acoustical research at Columbia University's Lament laboratory here, said his air pressure equipment has detected .wen separate explosions. Two Wasts on Dec 2 and five more last Thursday made readings on air pressure instruments, he said. He said the explosions were much too violent to have been caused by supersonic aircraft.

"What I heard was one loud boom, and the house sort of shook." said Joseph Manger, a police officer in Barnegat Township. N.J.. of the Dec. 2 incident. Donn said people on the Sleuth Carolina 5hore. where one of Thurhd.v. '? explosions was felt, told him the boom shook their homes and in some cases broke windows. Three shot in police station BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) _ A black man quoted as saying he was looking for "any white man" entered the city police station, shot the desk sergeant and a bail bondsman and beat up a telephone operator before being fatally wounded by another officer, police said. The gunman, described as a young man, carried no identification and police were unsure of his name today. Police Chief Howard Kidder said the gunman told him before he died that he had entered the station Sunday night "looking for any white man, and God sent me." The wounded sergeant, Robert Wayne Cupit, and the bondsman, August Arnold, 44, were in critical condition — Arnold with a chest wound and Cupit with a wound in his abdomen and a grazed forehead. The telephone operator, Nell Anderman, was not seriously hurt. The shooting occurred at the police station's booking desk, on the ground floor near a side, door which is used at,night • when the building's main ."entrance is locked. Insulation (Continued from Front Page) —This year 4.7 million homeowners have added attic insulation. That compares with 1.6 million homes last year. —New housing construction has increased dramatically in the last couple of years. In 1976 there were more than 2 million new housing starts, compared with 1.1 million in 1975. —The amount of insulating material being used in homes is 20 percent above what was used in each structure in 1974. The increase in the demand for the material has spawned apparent abuses in the field. The Federal Trade Commission's Dallas office has begun an investigation of the industry in a five^state area including Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, Ixjuisiana and New Mexico. According to a recent statement, so far the FTC staff has found that some areas in these states are experiencing as much as a 1,000-fold increase in demand. The staff believes that the increased demand, short- apes of material and the nature of the home improvement industry emphasize the potential for consumer ripoff. The commission staff said the evidence already available indicates that deception exists, and there is a high probability of additional deception as new producers and distributors enter the market. Partly because of the FTC's investigation, the state Attorney General's Consumper Protection Division has begun to look into the home insulation industry in Arkansas. Mac Norton of the division said "scads" of insulation man- ufacturers have sprung up in central Arkansas in the past year. He said the division's query, which he prefers not to call an investigation, also was prompted by complaints from consumers in Arkansas about the quality of insulation being produced, and by the number of fires apparently caused by insultion that was not flame retardant. Norton said he doesn't know what the query will discover. "We're just getting our feet wet." The first thing the staff wants to know is who the manufacturers are. Norton said the state does not require manufacturers of home insulation materials to be licensed or registered. He said division staff will contact retailers to find out who the manufacturers are, then will question the manufacturers about the quality of the products they are making. For example, he said, some of the insulation material appears fluffy when purchased by a consumer, but settles in time. Other insulation material has not been treated to make it flame retardant. Some of the material apparently does not have the capacity to insulate a home, he said. Norton said his staff probably will not be investigating complaints about exorbitant increases in prices of insulation materials in the past year. He said some of the demand in Arkansas probably is the result of recent state legislation which provides a lax break for Arkansans who insulate Words cannot express tfee gratitude we feel in appreciation for every ocf of fcimteess shewn during the illness oad deafa of ovr loved one.

Messer Police said the gunman walked up to Cupit and said he wanted to bail out a jail prisoner. When Cupit began looking through the arrest docket, the man pulled a .45-caliber pistol and shot him twice, officers said. The gunman then turned on Arnold, who tried to flee but was blocked by a pair of locked doors. Then, police said, the man broke a window above the booking desk, climbed over a counter and began beating the female operator. Sgt. Dan Divitorio, who was down the hall when the shooting started, said the gunman was beating the operator when he arrived and that he shot the assailant three times in the neck. The gunman died shortly afterward at Our Lady of the Lake Hospital. said empl.nees at the Oyster Cr«k nuclear power plant in southern New Jersey heard the Dec. 2 explosion. 'They thought it was an earthquake." he said. The exact locations of the explosions remain as mysterious as their cause. Donn said. Simultaneous readings from separate locations would be needed to pinpoint the location but no other research facility in the nation has atmospheric instruments as sensitive as those at Lamont, he said. Five men rob ritzy NY hotel NEW YORK (AP) - Police say five men entered the ritzy Hotel Carlyle early today and handcuffed several people, but fled after ripping open less than a dozen of the safe deposit boxes they had come to rob. It was not known how much loot they got. Police theorized thut the robbers, described as five white men, fled when they heard a broadcast over their police radio that a patrol car was headed for 76th Street and Madison Avenue to check out a burglar alarm. Actually, the alarm was coming from a building across the street from the hotel. Police said that after the bandits fled, shortly after 4 a.m., one of the handcuffed hotel guards made his way outside and signaled the policemen across the street. Police said the robbers, after handcuffing two guests, two security guards and an assistant hotel manager, tore open 11 of the safe deposit boxes. all around town . . .by the Star staff Thf? reunion of the Guernsey High School Alumni Association will be held at 7:30 p.m. December 23 in the Guernsey gym.

Editor's Mailbox Editor The Star: I would like to personally thank everyone in the county who helped to make the 1977-78 United Way campaign a success. However, there would not be enough space to list all of the fine companies and hundreds of individual contributors. Perhaps a "Thanks to you, it works for all of us" will be sufficient. Not enough can be said about the time, effort, and special publicity which was provided by The Hope Star and the exceptional job done by Billy Burton. By the very nature of the pledges and gifts we received, it is impossible at this time to give an exact final figure, but we can safely say that we have had the most successful campaign in the history of Hempstead County with nearly $45,000 given thus far. We expect the $50,000 goal to be met when the final wrap-up is completed sometime early next year. Please accept my personal thanks on behalf of the 14 agencies which will benefit from this year's campaign. We couldn't have done it without your help and support, KEITH SCHULTZ Campaign Chairman Hempstead County United Way ssssss Editor The Star: The Bus driver for the Hope Public School wish to thank all of the children that ride Bus No. 5 for being on time and on the road and thanks to the parents for seeing that they were, I do wish all of you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year and God Bless all of you.
