(API—Two police men were shot to death In a night club early today while investigating a disturbance. The search for the killer spread to New York City after a police picked up a man for questioning. Bergen County Prosecutor Guy W. Calissi identified the alleged killer only as "Tom T." The man being questioned was identified by Calissi as Anthony Cassarino, about 25. Calissi identified a third man in the bar as Frank Falco. The two officers, Detective Sgt. Peter Voto, 40, and probationary patrolman Garry Tedesco, 22, were gunned down in the Angel Lounge on Route 46. Calissi said Cassarino admitted being one of three men in the Angel Lounge when the shootings occurred. He was picked up within an hour in nearby Hasbrouck Heights by a policeman who spotted him in a clump of weeds. Shortly before the 3 a.m. closing time, Voto and Tedesco entered the night club to investigate a noise complaint. Calissi said the three men had been drinking highballs and all were "high." Voto, a 12-year veteran of the force, apparently asked the men for identification and took one of them aside to search him. During the frisking, Voto discovered a gun wrapped in a towel near a stage drum used by the night club's band. Then, Calissi said, Tom T. grabbed Voto from behind by the neck, dragged him through the bar and forced him to begin undressing. Tedesco, who was unarmed, came running in from outside. More shots rang out. Three slugs struck Tedesco, two in the abdomen and one in the chest. Voto caught one bullet in the back and another in the chin. WorldChurchCouncil Holds Annual Meet ROCHESTER, N.Y. (API-Representatives of the 100-member policy-making committee of the World Council of Churches met today for their annual meeting. Business sessions and discussions—one on relations with the Roman Catholic church — were scheduled. The world council includes Anglican, Orthodox and some Protestant churches with 400 million members in more than 90 coun- tires. Cool Spell Hits Much Of Nation By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Unseasonably cool weather covered wide areas in the northeastern quarter of the nation today. The mercury dropped to near freezing in some areas. For the second consecutive morning temperatures dropped into the 30s in sections of Pennsylvania and New England. The 36 at Pellston, Mich., was one of the lowest readings in the Midwest. It was 39 at Bradford and Philipsburg, Pa. The 40s and 50s were reported in many areas, with possible freezing readings in sections of New England. It was hot and humid in much of the Southland Sunday, with not much relief indicated today. Night time temperatures were in the 70s and 80s. Trapped Miners Work to Make Extra Space HAZLETON, Pa. (AP)—David Fellin, 58, and Henry Throne, 28, have considerably more room in which to maneuver than they had when they were trapped, along with a third man, in a coal mine nearly two weeks ago. They were trapped, on Aug. 13, 331 feet below the surface, in a chamber about nine by 14 feet, and perhaps 18 inches deep. The chamber is at the base of a steep sloping corridor through which Fellin and Throne, a little at a time, have scooped and scraped their way to a higher part of a corridor or shaft, to a level of 308 feet. Officials of the Pennsylvania mines department said they learned that Fellin and Throne had managed to chisel out more elbow room, not only to the higher level of the shaft, but in their own cramped burrow. Some of the debris thus removed for a little more spaciousness, authorities said, has been dumped at the base of the chamber walls, and the rest under boards which form a crude flooring for the chamber.

Mayor, DAI Meet Today On Meters Mayor P. W. Day was to meet at 4 p.m. today with representatives of Downtown Alton, Inc., on the proposal for converting all parking meters on the westerly side of Market street, from Third and Sixth streets. Day said he had invited Alderman Maitland Timmenniere, chairman of the city finance committee, and Alderman Newell Allen, chairman of the council's real estate committee, and others directly interested to sit in on the meeting. A proposal to set plans for replacing about 900 out-worn parking meters with new ones is on the finance committee agenda tonight. And the real estate committee has an interest because off-street city parking :ots are concerned. Day has been urging a change :rom 2-hour to 10-hour meters on Market street, which he be- ieves might be worked into the Droject for meter replacements, >ut said that the DAI has asked or an opportunity for its views o be presented before the me- er matter has formal council committee consideration.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF Blame* Road Signs for Auto Deaths TORONTO (AP)-A U.S. highway safely official says inferior road signs and traffic signals are factor in thousands of traffic deaths in the United States and Canada. J. A. Head, chief of the planning and slandni-ds division, office of highway safety, In the U.S. Department of Commerce, said that if all known devices of safely and traffic control were put into effect immedately, the highway accident toll would be cut in half. Head, interviewed while in Toronto for the annual meeting of the Institute of Traffic Engineers, of which he is president, said that within th" last five years Canada and the United States have adopted a manual of uniform traffic control devices. But only a small percentage of cities, stales and provinces come up to the standard. He said major faults are exit signs set to the side of highways instead of overhead where they are easier to read and traffic lights set too close to neon signs. "A stranger in town has to slow down to read the signs, and the slowing creates accidents." 13 Escape From Red E. Germany BERLIN (AP) — At least 13 East Germans tried to flee to the west over the weekend. Of these, nine are known to have succeeded. There also was the case of a 2-year-old boy who wandered un scathed over a Communist mine i field and was found in Bavaria. In Berlin, a young border guard disarmed his sergeant and escaped over barbed wire in the western sector, reliable sources said. West Berlin police said two other East German guards also made it safely west. Lumet Denies Attempt as Suicide NEW YORK (AP)—Movie-tele, vision director Sidney Lumet, divorced Saturday by heiress Gloria Vanderbilt Lumet, was taken to a hospital Sunday night suffering from what police called an overdose of pills. Lumet denied it. "All it was," he said, "was seven vodkas, a Miltown (tranquilizer) and idiocy." Lumet telephoned the Associated Press from St. Vincent's Hospital shortly before he was released today. Asked about the police report, he said, "it's not true. I don't like it and I'm sorry about it." Police said they found Lumet unconscious in his Greenwich Village apartment after they had been notified by a friend of his, Gaile Jones. Lumet said he took one tranquilizer on top of five to seven double vodkas to relieve "the aggravation of a nasty four-day fight" involving his movie business. Lumet and Gloria, both 39, would have been married seven years Tuesday. She previously had been married to Hollywood agen* Pat Di Cicco and music conductor Leopold Stokowski. She bore two sons, now 13 and 11, by Stokowski, who lists his age as 76. Lumet previously was married to actress Rita Gam.
