Deputies began digging when a suspect, Edmund Duhe, 40-year- old Reserve Negro, told state police he had buried the woman's body in the dump. Duhe allegedly made the admission while under the influence of a “truth serum” administered last week. Duhe was arrested two weeks ago after a robbery attempt during which he allegedly shot and wounded a New Orleans woman in the same area where Hotard was slain He was linked to the Hotard- Moate case through a purse found in his car, which matched the description of a handbag owned by Mrs. Moate.

Soraya, Orsini Romance Given Speculative Lift ROME (UPI) — Former Empress Soraya of Iran and Italian Prince Raimondo Orsini danced cheek to cheek into the early hours of the morning today reviving speculation that their reported romance still was on despite opposition from Iranian officials and the Vatican. The speculation was given an additional lift by the fact that earlier in the evening Orsini introduced Soraya and her mother, Countess Eva Esfandiari, to his mother, Princess Louisa Orsini. The four enjoyed an intimate dinner at the prince’s palatial home. Rumors spread through Rome when Soraya first arrived early last week that she and Orsini planned to wed But Informed sources said the couple cancelled their plans after the Iranian embassy and the Vatican intervened. Soraya, former wife of Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlevi, is a Moslem and divorced and Orsini member of the Roma is a Catholic nobility.

JOHN’S NFld. (UPI) - A United States Navy Super-Constellation radar picket plane crashed and burned Thursday night while landing in a heavy fog at the nearby United States Argentia Air Base. A spokesman said one of the 24 crew members was killed and an undetermined number injured. Faulty landing gear, rather than the fog was blamed for the crash. A spokesman said the gear failed to operate properly and the plane skidded several hundred yards along the runway and burst into flames. Several of the injured were taken to the base hospital.

LOUIS, Mo. (UPI) — A housewife ended a widespread search for three missing boys Thursday night when she found the lost and frightened youngsters trudging down a highway, purchased wagons behind them. The boys were welcomed home by their relieved parents a short time later, bathed and put to bed. The parents said the youths were too “dead tired” to be questioned—or punished — when they arrived. They had been missing for about 15 hours Mrs. John Dunbar, who lives aionsi I .

After she coaxed them out ol their hiding place, the beys ad rnitted their identities and said they had become lost while “on a hike.” Mrs Dunbar notified the children’s parents and then called poUca to tax« them home.
