GaylerSays Plane Glide-Lands at Phoenix After Evacuation Running Out of Gas; 4 Escape Hurts Big Success CAMP SMITH, Hawaii (UPI) — "Operation Eagle Pull," the evacuation of Americans from Phnom Penh, was an impressive success which could be repeated in Saigon, if necessary, Admiral Noel Gayler believes. Gayler, who is in charge of all U.S. military operations in the Pacific, showed anguish for those remaining in the Cambodian capital, but said there are no further plans to evacuate anyone. He told a news conference late Friday night, "Our hearts all go out tonight to the Cambodians in Phnom Penh who will obviously have a very tough time." "It's tragic, and I think things could have gone differently," he said, referring to Communist advances on the city. "But we have to live with what's happened. We can't redo history." Operation Eagle Pull worked, he said, because of surprise and good planning, along with "teamwork and coordination under rather difficult circumstances." "The operation was very much in the American tradition in which Americans look out after tiieirown." Gayler directed the evacuation from his command center, a war room lined with maps, diarts and banks of complex communications equipment. He replied affirmatively when asked if he was prepared for a similar evacuation of Ameri- rans from Saigon, if necessary, bsrt said "I would hope things won't come to that pass. " Laos Will Continue Neutrality VIENTIANE, Laos (UPI) Laos will remain neutral even if Communists gain full control of neighboring South Vietnam and Cambodia, Premier Souvanna Phouma said Friday. "Laos will stand firmly and strictly in a neutrality policy regardless of whatever changes or circumstances," the prince said. Vice Premier and Foreign Minister Phoumi Vongvichit, who represents the pro-communist Pathet Lao in the Laotian coalition government, issued a statement of neutrality a few weeks ago. Ocean Floor Shaken by Small Quake PASADENA, Calif. (UPI) -A small earthquake shook the ocean floor about a mile offshore north of Los Angeles Friday. The Cal Tech seismological laboratory said the quake registered 3.3 on the Richter scale, rippling along the ocean bottom about 15 miles southeast of Oxnard, between Point Dume and Point Mugu at 2:06 p.m. There were no reports that residents of the coastal area felt the quake.

Music Star Succumbs In France PARIS (UPI) - Josephine Baker, the American-born queen of French music halls for half a century, died Saturday in the midst of a triumphant comeback. She was 69. Miss Baker collapsed Thursday a few hours before she was to go onstage in her latest hit, "Josephine," which opened to rave reviews March 24 and was sold out three weeks in advance. She lost conciousness Friday afternoon and died at 5 a.m. Saturday. The Salpetriere hospital said the immediate cause of death was a cerebral hemorrhage. Friends said that although she had suffered two heart attacks in recent years, she had undergone a strenuous weight-reducing program for her latest show. The performance was a smash hit, loved by the critics as well as the public. The daily France- Soir exclaimed, "Her youthfulness is stunning —her slenderness, her allure, her melodious voice, her way of moving about and looking great whatever she's wearing." Miss Baker was wearing nothing but a bunch of bananas around her waist when she first stunned Paris in all-black American troupe, "Blackbird Revue," at the Champs-Elysees theater in 1925. She was the star of the Folies- Bergere and the Casino de Paris in the 1920s and 1930s. Poison Gas Sends 94 To Hospital PACOIMA, Calif. (UPI) Poison gas from a burning truckload of insecticide hospital ized 94 persons Friday, including 57 police officers and firemen, and closed a section of one of the main highways on the West Coast for 10 hours. Three firemen and a highway patrolman were still under intensive care today, but hospital officials said they expected all the victims to recover without permanent damage. Two of those treated were hospital workers made ill by fumes from the gas saturated clothing of the other victims. Police warned motorists who drove past the scene of the accident to seek medical attention immediately if they develop any of the symptoms of gas poisoning—blurred vision, a burning sensation of the skin, nausea and muscle tremors. Arthur M. Ono. of Santa Fe Springs, Calif., told officers a tire blew out on his truck carrying 12 tons of Methomel iasecticide, which contains the poison lannate, as he approached the intersection of the Golden State and Hollywood freeways Thursday night. A piece of tire tread wrapped around the truck's steering gear, officers said, sending it plunging out of control through a freeway divider. The truck overturned and burst into flames, but Ono escaped unhurt. Homesteaders Win First Round in Federal Court Suit GLEN CANYON CITY, Utah (UPI) — A self-proclaimed polygamist who considers himself a modern day Brigham Young has won the latest round in his battle to squat on federal lands in this remote corner of southern Utah. "We're not doing any more damage to this land than Brigham Young did when he brought the Mormon pioneers into the Salt Lake Valley," says Alex Joseph, 39, an excommunicated Mormon. A federal court judge has ruled that 200 homesteaders- including Joseph and his family of at least 19—can stay on the 2,000 acres they have settled in defiance of federal government restrictions until the case is settled. U.S. District Court Judge Aldon J. Anderson has set April 25 for the next hearing at which time the homesteaders will have to respond to charges they are despoiling the land and trespassing. U.S. marshals have been sent to the site between Bryce Canyon National Park and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area to make sure the modern-day pioneers don't do any further "damage" to the scenic Utah land they have homesteaded. Anderson granted the Bureau of Land Management a preliminary injunction forbidding the homesteader — including Joseph and two other admitted polygamists—from doing any more building, plowing or road building. The marshals are taking photographs of the land 40 miles east of Kanab, Utah, for use in determining the extent of the improvements by the squatters. Joseph appears to be the most prosperous of the group— yet claims he is broke. He runs a business called red Desert Industries and a" cafe here. He also owns two helicopters and at least one airplane. In his appearance before Anderson in federal court in Salt Lake City Thursday, Joseph wore a headband. His hair was tied back in pigtails, and his leggings were studded with tourquoise jewelry. He claims The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) excommunicated him, allegedly for espousing polygamy. He says he is the chief elder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Solemn Assembly. One of his wives with him in Salt Lake City said he has seven children by at least 12 wives, one of whom is 14 years dd. The BLM says the people are "trespassing" on land not open to homesteading, and alleges they are causing "irreparable damage to the environment."
