Chesapeake Bay Bridge police Â·aid 26,126 vehicles used the span near Annapolis Sunday, with the peak hours coming be* tween 11 a,m, and 7 p.m. Police reported a total of 105,839 cars used the bridge between Thursday and Sunday. State Police reported three persons were killed in Maryland traffic accidents in the official holiday period between 6 p.m. Friday and midnight Sunday. Another four persons were believed to have drowned during the period and a 66-year-old Virginia man suffered a heart attack on the Ocean City boardwalk and was dead on arrival at a hospital. Bay Bridge officials, who had seen vehicular backups as great as 15 miles on approach roads Thursday and Friday, said traf- fice was spaced out Sunday, although five one-way westbound cycles were imposed. Most campsites on the Eastern Shore were filled to capacity early in the weekend, with more than 1,000 would-be camp* ers turned away from Assa- teague Island State campgrounds State Police said. Ocean City police arrested about 60 persons over the three- day weekend, including 15 on drug charges. State Police in nearby Delaware arrested another 11 vacationing youths on drug charges. The Middletown Tavern, a popular Annapolis restaurant and bar, was gutted by a fire of unknown origin early Sunday. The two-alarm blaze also spread to an adjoining row of frame houses on Bandal Street in the City Dock area. The three holiday traffic victims were identified as Deborah Barrett, 19, of Bethesda; Harry Bessin, 56, of Baltimore; and Miss Ificbelle Brown, 16, of Pasadena, Anne Arundei County rescue units recovered the body of five- year-old Eric Bethmann last Sunday. The youth from Arnold had drowned inDividingCreekoff the Magothy River. State Marine Police were to resume their search today for the body of a 23-year-old man believed to have drowned in Back River in the Essex area of Baltimore County. Young advocates of population control, gathered along east and west approach roads to the Bay Bridge, were disappointed Sunday when no massive traffic jam developed. The 35 members of Zero Population Growth, who wanted to dispense leaflets calling for "no more than two natural children per family*' to occupants of cars along U.S. 50-301, were left with thousands of uncirculated leaflets. Hundreds of well-meaning Baltimore residents, accustomed to dumping their own trash on Memorial Day weekend, found themselves barred from a Pulaski Highway incinerator in East Baltimore. So indignant citizens dumped trash into empty sanitation department trucks, and when they were filled, simply dumped their refuse at the gates to the incinerator. Memorial services were held throughout Maryland for Americans slain in foreign wars, and numerour colleges held commencement exercises. BIG POW WOW - Sioux Indian Bear Regrets presents peace pipe to the four directions in a prayer to Wakan-Tanka. the Great Mystery God during a press conference on Alcatraz Island today. At the right is the Indian declaration to return to their land. The Alcatraz pow-wow, open to whites for the first time since Thanksgiving, attracted many sympathizers attending the Indian Liberation Day meeting. The Indians stated that they are determined to stay on the island despite the cutoff of electricity and water by the Federal Government (AP Wirephoto) Operations Prolong Life Of Baby Boy LEXINGTON, Ky (AS) Jimmy Kerns is a veteran of more than SO surgical operations at the age of 1. Life for Jimmy is going to be more of the same in the foreseeable future. But he weighs a normal 17 pounds and like other babies loves to run his fingers through his oatmeal instead of eating it Jimmy was born with only a thirtieth of the normal length of small intestines- about four inches instead of 120. "Nobody thought he would live," said Dr. Bobert P. Belin, who told an interviewer that one other child in medical annals had survived a similar fault, only to die just past the age of 1. Life for Jimmy at the University of Kentucky Medical Center depends on a tube that enters his neck just below the left ear and reaches down to the left ventricle of his heart. It carries nutrition into Jimmy's body, substituting for what a normal person gets from food as it is broken down while passing through the small intestine. "The main thing we're doing is buying time," said Dr. Belin. "We're waiting to see if his small bowel will grow and develop enough for him to live a normal life. "I would guess that it will, but I want to stress that nobody knows what will happen. We do have indications now that it has grown some, though." The tube, or catheter, which helps to feed Jimmy has to be replaced often, and each time it requires an operation. Jimmy has had about 50 of these. He also has undergone other surgery. Dr. Belin said he is "optimistic we will get this child out Of the hospital," but conceded he did not know when . "Right now, though, he can go several days or even a couple of weeks without the catheter and at one time he couldn't do without it even 24 hours,*' the doctor said. "When it is out, his weight slides and he becomes sickly and more irritable, but an odd thing is that he eats better with it out. When it's in, he is a sort of finicky eater." A GREAT FEELING-For Jimmy Kerns, who celebrated his first birthday last week at the University of Kentucky Medical Center, it's not only a great feeling to be alive, but a modern medical miracle. Jimmy is one of only two children to survive that long with almost no small intestines and his doctor hopes one day Jimmy will live a normal life.

Only the bow was above the water line about seven miles from the port of Victoria. A port official said the vessel "hit an uncharted object- presumably rocks." The ship's 18 English officers and 42 oil crewmen were reported safe. The 49,209-ton tanker was loaded with crude oil. 58 Senators Seek Planes For Israel WASHINGTON (AP) - A letter urging the administration to sell 125 more warplanes to Israel has been signed by 58 senators. The total may reach 60 or 70 by the time it is delivered to Secretary of State William P. Rogers, probably late today, according to an informed Senate aide. The bipartisan appeal has been circulating quietly for several weeks, and its sponsors feel the White House will lend a receptive ear. In another, unrelated development Rogers said he may soon take part personally in renewed talks with the Soviet Union on the Middle East. Recent meetings with the Soviets, which have produced little, have involved the U.S. ambassador in Moscow, Jacob Beam, and U.S. Asst Secretary Joseph Sisco, who handles Middle East affairs. Rogers said on his return from Europe Sunday night that he, Sisco, or the two of them together planned soon to set up a meeting with Soviet Ambassador Anatoly F. Dobrynin, who returned from Moscow consultations recently. Rogers flew in from Portugal after a week's trip to Europe for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization meeting in Rome and diplomatic discussions in Madrid and Lisbon. The name, "dandelion," is a corruption of the French "dent- de-lion," meaning lion's tooth. Indians Bar Surrender Of Alcatraz SAN FRANCECO (Art - Indians occupying Alcatra* bland say they Mil refuse to evacuate the desolate prison fortress despite a government cutoff of power and water and plans to make it a park. "They better not try to make this into a park. This is our land -all of it,*' declared Richard Oakes, a Mohawk who with 13 others occupied the island last November. Some 500 persons rode charter boats to the island Sunday to attend a ceremony asserting Indian ownership of the island. After it was announced last week that Alcatraz would become a national recreation area, the General Services Administration removed a water barge and cut off electricity for the 80 Indians on the island. Butane gas stoves and kerosene lamps are now used, but there is no heat or refrigeration on the wind-blasted "Bock*' in San Francisco Bay. Water is shipped daily by sympathizers in containers ranging from jugs to 300 gallon tanks. David Bisling Jr., president of the California Indian Education Association, asserted that cutting off water and electricity is yet "another form of genocide" against the American Indian. "If the government doesn't shoot them off,*' Risling said, "then they will force conditions to become so bad that they'll become sick." "If the government can't solve its problems here, "how can it go overseas to Vietnam and Cambodia and practice the same thing?" he asked. In the ceremony Sunday, the Indians unveiled a leather proclamation declaring Indian ownership of Alcatraz by right of prior discovery. Army Orders Handicapped GI To War FT. LEWB, Wash. (AP) Spec. 5 James G. Sparks says he has a surgical steel rod in one leg, which limits his ability to walk, but the Army is sending him to Vietnam anyway. Sparks, who is on orders to fly to the war area Tuesday, said in an interview Sunday he is not complaining-- 'Tin glad to do it" sparks, a 22-year-old microwave technician, said the rod was placed in his left thigh after he was injured in a 1967 auto accident Army induction center doctors in Detroit told him when he was drafted in March 1969 the disability was "bad but not enough to keep me out" Sparks said. During basic training, Sparks said, the Army exempted him from jumping, running, crawling or squatting. Later, he said, the Army cleared him for activity other than squatting exercises or deep knee bends. Sparks said an officer once told him, "I don't know how in hell you got in the Army." His mother woundered much the same thing, Sparks said, "She was heartbroken when she found out I had to go, but mothers are like that" he added.
