(AP) - A young advertising agency em- ploye walked into police headquarters Tuesday and started a gun battle with police a short time after his father was shot to death. He was injured critically by police bullets. The gun play between Brendan McLaughlin, 26, an ex-Marine and former art student, and the police took place a short distance from the house where McLaughlin's father, 70, lay dead with five bullet wounds. 'Brendan just lost his mind," Mrs. Eugene McLaughlin said later of her son. Police said McLaughlin began firing at two officers in the station, wounding patrolman Donald Bennette, 26, in the hip. He then aimed his .45 pistol at desk officer Andrew Chapo, 35, who said "Don't be a fool. Put that gun down," making sure that his words carried over the police radio transmitter. McLaughlin turned and fled wilh Chapo and the wounded Ben- notte in pursuit. McLaughlin was trapped outside in the police parking lot as cruisers, alerted by Chapo's words over the radio, converged on the station. In the gunfight which followed, McLaughlin was felled by bullets in the stomach and chest. Chapo was hit in the hip. The body of Eugene McLaughlin, a retired industrial engineer, was found by a police officer checking neighbors' reports of gun-fire coming from the house. The neighbors told police they saw the younger McLaughlin running from the house shortly after they heard the shots. track of the clour. VAN WERT, Ohio CAP)— Elev en persons were hurt, one seri ously, at 5:35 a.m. EST today when thc Pennsylvania Railroad's New York-lo-Chicago passenger train, the Gcneral-Trailblazcr, derailed nine miles northwest of this town. The accident took place in the village of Convoy, six miles east of the Ohio-Indiana line, and about 1C miles southeast of Fort Wayne, Ind. A trailer-truck became stalled on a crossing and was hit by the train. The lead unit of a three- unit diesel which hit the trailer remained on the tracks. But the other two units, an express car, a baggage car, a lounge car and four coaches derailed. None of the cars overturned, but some were tipped at a 45- ficers. said the man was murdered. Sheriff Fred B. Hayes said papers found in the truck established the victim's identity as Johnnie Windham. Coroner B. G. Itendrix said Windham died of multiple blows on the back of the head. TJ blood-spattered handle of a * wagon found nearby was believed to be the murder weapon. Windham had been dead about 18' hours when his body was found, Hendrix said. Hayes said Pictsburg officers told him Windham had served a term in the Nevada penitentiary for a 1948 holdup. John Newman and Clyde Milifr, who live near here, said they found the body when they had gone to the area to feed some cattle. They had seen the truck parked there Monday, they told officers, but paid no attention to it because' they said it was not unusual to see cars parked in the area. Wlicn-they saw it was still th«2 Tuesday they looked inside and saw Windham slumped over in thc seat.

Lonnie Etheridge plans to ask a special legislative session to establish an advisory council on higher education in Arkansas. Etheridge said he would submit a bill similar to one defeated dur- ng the 1961 session. There has been increased interest in such a board since defeat of Gov. Orval E. Faubus' $60 million bond issue proposal. Faubus is expected to call the Legislature around Aug. 1 to rewrite a state construction program to replace the plan in the defeated bond proposal.
