(AP) The maxi-miniskirt debate became academic on a city street yesterday. For a few minutes, any length garment would have done for a working girl temporarily without one. Witnesses said a young commuter waiting for a bus stood too close to a curb and a passing truck hooked her skirt, tore it off and carried it away. Several other commuters, all male, encircled her while one of their number hailed the truck driver and retrieved the skirt. Backs remained turned while she restored her modesty. Minutes later the bus arrived and she rode off to work. Richardson: Brink's guard killed in Florida holdup try NAVY IN THE CITADEL WASHINGTON (AP) - The Navy yesterday announced it will establish a Reserve Officers Training Corps unit at The Citadel in Charleston, S.C. State Dept. not ignored WASHINGTON (AP) - Undersecretary of State Elliot L. Richardson denied yesterday that the administration has bypassed the State Department in foreign policy making. But he acknowledged that U.S. diplomats were not widely consulted in advance of the U.S. military foray into Cambodia. "In general I feel that . . . is a mistaken impression," Richardson replied when asked whether State Department officials had an inadequate role in foreign policy decisions. Richardson, who becomes secretary of health, education and welfare next week, said advance knowledge of the Cambodian operation was kept limited in order to avoid leaks. This "has created problems" in the State Department but is not a typical situation, he said. United Press International JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A Brink's security guard was slain and another wounded yesterday in a gun battle with three holdup men in front of a department store. The front door of Zayre's Department Store was riddled with bullets but the store was relatively uncrowded and no shoppers were hurt. City police and the Florida Highway Patrol set up roadblocks at all bridges leading out of Jacksonville and put a helicopter up to search for the two white gunmen and their black driver, all described as youths. Police identified the dead guard as George Joseph Schwender, 43, of Jacksonville. Schwender died in Memorial Hospital shortly after the shooting. Harry H. Schenck, 31, also of Jacksonville, was reported in fair condition after being shot twice. Officers said Schenck was returning to the Brink's truck after picking up a deposit from inside the store when two white youths carrying pistols appeared. One of the youths reportedly grabbed the money bag from Schenck and Schwender inside the truck and opened fire from the rear door. Schwender was hit but continued to empty his revolver at the bandits, witnesses said. After being wounded. Schenck ran back into the store and collapsed. In the exchange of shots, the youths dropped the money bag and fled in a car which was found abandoned later near the store. Witnesses described-the two white youths as blond, longhaired and about 18 or 20. A Negro youth was seen in the car in which the bandits fled. An employe of the store said no money was lost. She said the normally busy store was not crowded during the incident and there was no one around the front door. "It was just a volley of gunfire," she said. "It sounded like a popgun and then the guard came running back into the store. They were shooting through the door at him."
