In City Council More Sidewalk Talk 11 Missing In Ocean; Sight Oil MIAMI," Fla ffl — Debris was picked up today in a massive search for 11. men aboard two jet stratotanker aircraft missing over the Atlantic on a refueling mission. The search was concentrated .jin two areas between Miami 'and Bermuda. One area',-is about 560 miles northeast of Miami, the other 780 miles northeast. A Coast Guard spokesman at Miami said the merchant vessel S.S. Azalea City was retrieving debris, including red life jackets, ah HC54 master aircraft—a four- engine plane—discovered an oil slick and debris at the other site early today. As area, additional it circled air and the sea searchers, including paramedics, were directed to assist. Radio contact was lost about noon Wednesday as the huge tankers returned toward Homestead. At that time, they were 800 miles northeast of Miami, or about-300 miles west of Bermuda. A spokesman of the Air Rescue Service said, "The debris looks like pieces of an airplane but that is all we know at this time." The Air force was unwilling to discuss the possible fate of the aircraft. About 35 Air Force planes — ranging from amphibian HU16 Albatrosses to T29 trainers — flew over the Atlantic during the night their search lights playing over the water, igniting flares occasionally to light an unidentified object. Air Rescue Service head quarters in Orlando said the tola might reach close to 100 planes during the day. The Coast Guard also sent out at least five ships and many planes. The planes, which have a range of 4,500 miles and a cruising speed of 600 miles an hour, would have run out of fuel at 6 p.m. Wednesday. Their mission, scheduled arrival time at Homestead and even the basis from which Miner Trapped Search for Bova Is Continuing By STANFORD H. BENJAMIN Associated Press Staff Writer HAZLETON, Pa. (AP)-Hope of finding Lotus Bova alive soon lickered for a moment today, hen died out, as rescuers probed vith renewed determination for the miner's fate through four separate shafts. • The crews were electrified for an instant when Daniel Bova, a wother of the 54-year-old Louis, said he thought he heard a voice :alling out weakly, "Hello, hello," jver a sensitive microphone lowered into one hole. Since Aug. Bova was 18 entombed Aug. 13 more than 300 feet down in the nearby Sheppton coal mine with David Fellin, 58, and Henry Throne, 28. Fellin and Throne vere recuperating in Hazleton State Hospital after their dramat- c rescue early Tuesday. A tape recording of the sound Daniel Bovo heard yas played jack, with the volume increased. :t turned out to be only sand sift- ng down an underground slope. Enlargement of the 12-inch escape shaft was started this morning, and those supervising the operation said it might take two days to complete. This hole was bored into the chamber Wednesday, chewing into the area where Bova may have been trapped. He has been without food all this time, and with only brackish water to drink. shaft. Officials would not say who the man might be but among the volunteers are David Fellin, 58, recuperating in Hazleton State Hospital since his rescue Tuesday from the cave-in, and a brother of Bova. The drilling probes, patterned from a rough map of the mine supplied by Fellin, lie in a triangle. The 3-inch hole and the 12- inch hole are about 15 feet apart.. The 6-inch hole is on another line 10 feet from the large hole. Separated Fellin and Henry Throne, 28, who also was rescued, were trapped in the Aug. 13 cave-in with Bova but he was separated from them by debris, and reportedly injured. Bova was last heard from six days a fter the cave-in when Fellin and Throne reported talking to him. They believe he is alive. Bova's brother, John, 39, tearfully told Charmbury, "I want to go down there. I just know my brother is alive. I've got to get to him." Two attempts to take pictures down the 12-inch hole, which were to be shown to Fellin and Throne, failed Wednesday. Charmbury had said the possibility of sending a man down would depend largely on whether Fellin and Throne could identify, by looking at the pictures, the chamber where it is believed In the making, too, are three!Bova was trapped, other holes, one six and a half! Rescue workers sent down vac- inches in diameter, the other two three inches across. ICnlarge Hole H. Beecher Charmbury, state mines secretary, said it is planned to ream the 12-inch hole to 30 inches for the first 38 feet, then insert steel casing to that depth. After the rest of the hole will be enlarged to a width of 22 inches. Charmbury said a man may be stretch of the uum bottles filled with soup and milk. Yellow highway blinking lights were attached to the line in hopes that if Bova were alive the lights would guide him to the food.

In a special report',' the City Plan Commission said it still is of the opinion that sidewalks be required in subdivisions in the IYs - mile fringe about the city. But because of opposition of subdivision developers to this regulation, it asked the council either to reaffirm the sidewalks requirement or eliminate ,it. The council referred the 'report to its real estate committee Meantime John J., Storey was granted the floor to request waiving the sidewalks requirement, and approval of his flna plat for Storeyland Addition, No 2, without sidewalks. City Counsellor J. W. Hoeferl said that under the subdivision control ordinance the Counci may waive the requirement for walks when unusual conditions are found. Of No Benefit Storey contended that .when lis original Storeyland plat was approved some years ago, no sidewalks were required. He said that walks in his new addi tion to the original plat woulc connect to no other walks in the area, <md left a condition ii: which they would be of no bene fit to anyone. But because the proposal to amend the ordinance had been brought up; the council took no action on Storyland Plat No. 2 and referred it back to the Plan Commission. Over an extended period the council lias been approving omis jion of sidewalks in outlying subdivisions. A preliminary plat for Buck Inn subdivision on the westerly side of State Street in the North side business district was ap proved. It was recommended by the plan body. Alderman William Warren ask ed that the stop - go signal light? at 3rd and State Streets be oper ated only in daytime, and thu>- leave a clear right of way fo State Street "going - to - work" traffic in the early morning. Public Works Director Paul Leiu said the Division of Highways is now studying a change in the signal operation. Alderman Clifford Dabbs asked installation of a street light at 8th and Easton Streets. Alderman Daerrell Riley asked painting of crosswalk lines to relievo a hazard at Broadway and Pearl Street. Het'orred to Plan Body Opening of Moore Street from Main to Seminary was suggested by Alderman James Bailey, and the proposal was referred to the City Plan Commission. Bail ey referred to the public works director and the waterworks committee a request for Installation of several fire hydrants in a presently unprotected residential area between the Beltline and the GM&O' tracks, near tin; north end of Humbert Street. A petition for a walkway for school children from Franor to Edsall Street In the Milton School vicinity was referred to the public- works department for investigation. Several petitions on park- Ing and traffic matters were referred IQ? committee recommendations. ate Foreign Relations Committee voted 16 to 1 today to approve he limited nuclear test ban trea- y without any reservation. it now goes to the Senate for vhat proponents predict will be overwhelming ratification. Sen. Russell B. Long, D-La., cast the lone vote against the treaty.
