A-2 Alton Evening Telegraph Monday, January 11, 1971 Bolivia crushes coup by officers LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) — A group of army officers seized the armed forces headquarters in La Paz early today in rebellion against Bolivia's three month - old leftist military regime. A few hours later President Juan Jose Torres announced the Sewers (Continued from Page One) lices in Chicago today and would meet with bonding attorneys in St. Louis tomorrow to draw up a bond ordinance. The next step is to authorize the township engineering firm of Russell and Zaxton of St. Louis to prepare final plans and specifications for the sewer line. That, should take about five months, Elble said. The plans will be reviewed by HUD officials and the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency. Later, Elble hopes to get an additional $460,000 from the state's $750,000,000 environmental bond issue approved in November. Following final approval by the state and federal agencies, construction bids will be let and work begun, probably in October or November. In Cottage Hills, the system will involve some 64,750 feet of trunk sewer and 18,300 feet of line between the trunks and property lines. Bunker Hill mortician succumbs Albert H. Wise, owner and operator of Jacoby-Wise Funeral Homes in Bunker Hill and Shipman, and an undertaker for 56 years, died Saturday. He was born and lived his entire life in Bunker Hill. He joined the Jacoby Brothers Furniture and Undertaking Establishments in 1010 He was a graduate of the Bunker Hill Military Academy and the Warsham School of Mortuary Science in Chicago. Active in all phases of the funeral business, in Ifl43 he became manager of the Bunker Hill Vault and Monument Works. He served In World War I and was a former member of the Bunker Hill City Council for several years. He also served as secretary of the school board for 25 years. Mr. Wise was a memoer of the American Legion Post ',,578 in Bunker Hill, where he served as adjutant, and also of the Masonic Lodge 151 AF&AM In Bunker Hill. He was also a member of the First Congregational Church in Bunker Hill. revolt had been crushed. In a broadcast to the nation, Gen. Torres said some leaders of the coup had taken refuge in foreign embassies— chiefly in the embassy of Peru. The leaders were described as mostly young officers. Torres called them right-wingers and reactionary subversives. In the early hours, the rebels announced they were acting to keep Bolivia from being delivered to "another imperialism as dismal as that of North America." They did not identify it. Torres assured the nation that a state of normality had been restored and urged workers to report to their jobs as usual. High court to review search law WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court agreed today to review an appeals court ruling that customs inspectors must show more than an "aroused suspicion" to order Americans entering the country to submit to a search of their clothing for narcotics. The Justice Department had told the court the 2-1 ruling by the U.S. Circuit Court in San Francisco last March would make it more difficul to guard the borders against narcotics imports. The government appeal will be heard later this term, probably in April. The case concerns the search of Sandra Johnson, a 2 6 - y e a r - o 1 d Los Angeles dry cleaning store clerk, at the San Ysidro, Calif., customs station in August 1968. A customs inspector of 27 years' experience ordered her and a woman companion also crossing the border from Mexico to be searched by a woman inspector. A bundle of heroin was found in Miss Johnson's un- derpanties. No narcotics were found in the second woman's clothing. Miss Johnson was tried, convicted and sentenced to five years in prison. The appeals court, in setting aside the conviction, said customs inspectors cannot order travelers to submit to "strip searches" unless they have a "real suspicion" that they could support with "objective artlculable facts." The Justice Department contended the search was valid. Solicitor General Erwln N. Griswold said that in light of the volume of traffic, both lawful and Illicit, at ports of entry, customs officials necessarily rely on "Intuitive reactions based on their experience." Early in the revolt, Col. Jorge Sanchez, a rebel spokesman, claimed several top loyalist officers at military headquarters had been seized by the rebels, including the army commander, Gen. Luis Reque Teran. Shortly afterward a government spokesman termed the s i t u a t io n at that time dangerous but said loyalist troops had the headquarters surrounded and could move in at any time. Three air force planes flew over the city after midnight, and fired their machine guns into the air. A local radio station said the planes dropped a bomb near the military headquarters, but there was no confirmation of this. The leftist military government charged that the rebels were trying to set up a "dictatorship of the right." It warned that "the people will fight for their revolution." Col. Sanchez, the rebel spokesman, said the rebel movement known as The Nationalist Troops of the Armed Forces had decided to overthrow the government because it was on the verge of handing the nation over to "another Imperialism." Torres took to the air at dawn for a brief broadcast, rallying his supporters and promising to put down the rebellion. An interior ministry com- munique called on students, peasants and workers to mobilize against the "subversive rightwing plot." Sources close to the regime said the antigovernment leaders included Col. Hugo Banzer, transferred last week to a remote outpost on the Chilean border. Banzer was commandant of the military college but was accused three weeks ago of conspiring to assassinate Torres and install a new government. The struggle between leftist and rightist officers in the armed forces began when Gen. Alfredo Ovando, after taking over the government in September 1909, began to move it to the Vifl in response to the wave of unrest that has been growing among Latin America's dispossessed masses. A rightist faction ousted Ovando in October and installed a three-man junta, but leftist officers headed by Torres threw out the Junta in a few days with the backing of armed students and workers.

Mrs. Harlung, I he owner, is a patient at a nursing home here. Graham paid his monthly rent to John Hartung, son of the owner. Hartung Is an Edwardsville city police commissioner and former police chief. Mrs. John Harding told the Telegraph this morning that Graham held a city license to operate the Edwardsvillo Amusement Center, and that "all we ever did was collect the rent." The Telegraph was told last week that the building was owned by John Harlung who rented it to Leon Brown and Rodger Leroy Seals, who ran the pool hall. Mrs. John Hartung said that Graham, of Edwardsville, will be notified by an attorney today that he is being ousted as renter. She said the locks on the doors were changed Saturday to prevent it from opening. The doors were locked Thursday night after agents arrested Brown and Seals and others in connection with a three-part drug raid. Mayor William Straube today instructed City Clerk Mrs. Rosemary Uubach not to reissue a renewal notice for the pool hall's city business license, he told the Telegraph. Boe your dentlnt regularly.

(AP) — An inquiry into the number and use of aircraft in various Illinois official circles, especially universities, is being made by a lawmaker who believes they should be centrally controlled. State-owned aircraft now total about 100. Rep. Harber Hall, R-Bloomington, a real estate broker who once was a military aircraft pilot, is heading an inquiry authorized by the powerful Legislative Audit Commission. Hall, who says he's accustomed to seeing records kept centrally on each pilot and craft as to passengers and missions, has criticized two universities because the commission could obtain no record showing that they maintained central controls. Director J.E. Wenzel of the state Aeronautics Department reported to the commission that the University of Illinois has 50 aircraft and Southern Illinois University has 30. Some are inoperable and their parts are used for repairs. Hall also wants explanations on uses of three Man held after disturbance at East Alton An East Alton man was charged with disorderly conduct after his 8-year-old son walked to the police station, and told officers "my dad's beating up on my mother," reports showed today. The boy was sent, by his father, to get some cigarettes, but the youngster said he felt he must do something to help his mother, so he walked to the police station Saturday night for help. Police arrested the man, who was held in jail the rest of the weekend, waiting for a court appearance this morning. aircraft by the Illinois Toll Highway Commission. One is a helicopter. Other state units owning aircraft and the number of their craft are: — In the Aeronautics Department, 9. Mostly these are used in a pool for state missions. — In the Conservation Department, 2. —In the Department of Law Enforcement, 4. A helicopter in the department came under criticism because it was reported dropping down near a residential area to pick up the director of the department. After publication of the use, the practice was reported stopped. Most of the craft listed are used for transportation of personnel, Wenzel reported. However, the University of Illinois listed five for training in maintenance; seven for air transport; four planes and a helicopter for junk; and 33 for flight training of students. Wenzel said the seven are used for air transport of passengers and are the most pertinent for the inquiry. For Southern Illinois University he listed four for maintenance training; seven for air transport; two for part-time training for flight and 17 for aviation flight training. Wenzel also supplied the commission with forms relating to Aeronautics Department controls of the nine planes it used for travel of state officials. The governor and the lieutenant governor have priority on use of these. Wenzel said the records system "seems to be an excessive amount of paper work," but that evehy document is necessary. Alton girl hurt when car skids into ditch EDWARDSVILLE - A 17- year-old Alton girl was injured this morning in a one- car accident on Dorsey Road, a half-mile west of Fosterburg Road.
