Utah Demo Chiefs Blast at Opposition OGDEN (DPI) - The Utah Democratic Central Committee took a few partisan shots during its weekend meeting, aiming at Republican advertising in Weber County and American Party plans to initiate a recall law. The remittee also called for easing of the state's adoption laws to accomodate Vietnamese orphans, and reapportioned Hostages Held by Prisoners NASHVILLE, Tenn. (UPI) Four maximum security prisoners today seized four civilian hostages at knifepoint and took over a counselor's office at the Tennessee State Penitentiary. Five counselors were in the office at the time, but one managed to escape and alert prison officials of the takeover. Assistant Corrections Commissioner Charles Bass said: "These men are dangerous. We consider them maximum security inmates." Bass identified the prisoners as Dave Mitchell, Melvin Lockett and Doc Walker. A fourth prisoner was unidentified. All were serving long term sentences. The hostages were identified as William Randolph, Mike White, Jesse Tucker and Paul Campbell. Bass said the prisoners had assured him that no one had been hurt. * 30-Day (Continued from Page 1) educated wife. An honor guard drawn from the Nationalist Chinese armed forces stood at rigid attention, bayonets fixed, while mourners lined up for more than two blocks slowly passed the altar and bowed three times in the Chinese tradition. Mothers with babies, children in school uniforms, elderly couples and Buddhist monks in black shuffled slowly through the hall in a silence broken only by funeral music and the repeated command to bow three times. At some later date, not yet announced, Chiang's body, wasted by three years of sickness, will be brought into the hall for public display before the funeral April 16. The nationalist government, headed by new President C.K. Yen, 70, and directed by Premier Chiang Ching-kuo, 65, the generalissimo's eldest son, discontinued most normal activities to prepare one of the most elaborate Chinese funerals ever staged since the end of the Manchu Dynasty in 1911. * Kimball (Continued from Page 1) worship at the altar of appetite are very intense. There must exist a sin-resistant strain of souls for whom narcotics, prostitution, gambling and alcohol hold no allure, for we bind the adversary and his mortal minions only as we bind our appetites," said Maxwell. Two new general authorities of the church spoke, including the first Oriental elevated to the leadership councils. Adney Komatsu of Hawaii, newly sustained assistant to the Council of the Twelve, told of his conversion from Buddhism to Mormonism. He said his widowed mother was worried that his conversion would cause her embarassment. Komatsu told her he would quit going to church if it ever caused her grief. "But the church improved me and never caused my mother any shame." Another new assistant to the Twelve, Joseph Wirthlin Jr., pledged his service in his new calling. President Kimball closed the session until the next semiannual conference to be held in October. county delegates to the August organizing convention. The committee asked its executive committee to answer Republican advertising in Weber County which criticizes Democratic lawmakers for voting to increase state taxes during the last session of the legislature. Rep. D. Leon Reese, D-Magna, initiated the motion, charging that the Republican controlled 1973 legislature made the tax hike necessary by erroneously predicting the results of changes in the tax formula. State Democratic Chairman John H. Klas led the attack on American Party efforts to get a recall law on the books by initiative. "It is a simple technique of harassment employed by the American Party, and 1 will make every effort to oppose the idea," Was told the committee. He said recall laws are a tool to intimidate lawmakers, and to discourage them from taking stands on issues which are temporarily unpopular. The Utah American Party has announced it will back a drive to collect sufficient signatures to force an election on a proposed recall law. Such a law allows a percentage of the voters to petition an election on whether an elected official should be allowed to continue in office. The committee unanimously adopted a resolution asking Gov. Calvin L. Rampton to meet with representatives of adoption agencies to see if state requirements could be eased to facilitate adoption of Vietnamese orphans. And committee members set the number of county delegates to the August convention in Salt Lake City at 1,836, substantially increasing the representation from Weber, Davis and Utah counties because of the margin of victory by which the First Congressional District returned Rep.Gunn McKay, D-Utah, to office last year. Rebels Inch Closer To Airport PHNOM PENH (UPI) Communist-led rebels have punched gaps in the Cambodian army's defense lines and are now within four miles of the capital's lifeline airport, just close enough to fire heavy mortars, military sources said today. Cambodian Prime Minister Long Boret, who vowed to return to Phnom Penh today from neighboring Thailand, called for negotiations with the rebels to end the five-year-old Cambodian war in the wake of President Lon Nol's departure. In Bangkok, Foreign Minister Chartchai Choonhavan said- today the Thai government had contacted the Khmer Rouge rebels about starting peace talks with the Cambodian government in Bangkok. Chartchai said the Phnom Penh government had accepted and "if the Khmer Rouge think about the Cambodian people who are suffering from the war, they should accept our proposal.'' Political sources said officials of the caretaker government in Phnom Penh decided at a meeting Sunday not to surrender the city to the Communists. The sources said Acting President Sau Khamkoy, Deputy Prime Minister Hang Thun Hak and other senior officials discussed surrender but decided instead to work for unity among military and civilian leaders. Long Boret, who is himself on the rebels' "death list" of government officials marked for execution if and when Phnom Penh falls, said in Bangkok Sunday the war will continue if the insurgents won't negotiate. Oklahoma was the first state to honor its outstanding boy and girl in 4-H Club work through a hall of fame program, and the state has accumulated one of the highest numbers of national championships in 4-H endeavor of any state. * Commies Shell Oil Storage Near Saigon (Continued from Page 1) panic April 1. but field reports said Communist troops halted their southward advance less than two miles north of Nha Trang without entering the city of 170,000.
