'i ' Innocent Victim Terrifying drama plays itself out in Bangkok Sunday as a janitor looks at rioter-set flames engulfing a downtown building (left), decides not to jump, and is burned to death in view of horrified demonstrators. Later a student places a wreath of flowers in front of the man's charred body. 1 ' :KAA f ' V I . . 'J 0 tJ; 3 Thai Leaders Leave, Rioting Eased BANGKOK (AP) -Three of Thailand's most powerful ' "military leaders, including the ex-premier, left the country Mon-' day! alter two days of bloody demonstrations in the capital " against military rule, the government radio said. The announcement over Radio Thailand was coupled with a declaration by the new civilian premier, Dr. SanyaThammasak, ' that he had reached a compromise agreement with student demonstration leaders. The radio announced that the leaders former Premier Thanom Kittikachorn, Deputy Premier and Field Marshal Pra-phas Charusathien, and Col. Narong Kittikachorn flew to an undisclosed destination in a move to ease the explosive situation in Bangkok. ' Praphas was considered the most powerful man in the mill-.tary ruling group. Narong was the deputy chief of national secu- rity. ; ; A CURFEW WAS LIFTED Monday night and students raced around the city in commandeered cars and buses, appealing to demonstrators to clear the streets and go home. . Seven student leaders, including the head of the powerful national Student Center, went on national television to appeal for an end to the violence. During the day, the city's main police headquarters was stormed and burned by an armed mob in one of numerous clashes with authorities. Several other police stations also were attacked. Complete casualty figures were not available, but a report on the police radio communications network said many police were killed in one skirmish. One doctor said a check of four hospitals listed more tha 185 dead so far. Hundreds have been wounded. Student activists, many wearing red armbands and bandanas, were in virtual control of Bankok on Monday. Police had disappeared from the streets and students controlled traffic at intersections, but turckloads of troops in full battle gear were on alert in the city. Sanya, the former rector of Thammasat University, was lood Is Only Clue to Missing Guard A night watchman for the Bob-Lo Boat Co. was reported missing Monday and Detroit police said the only clue to the Chavez, Teamster Deal Off? MIAMI BEACH - (AP) -AFL-CIO President George Meany indicated Monday tha't the tentative peace agreement with the Teamsters for settling the California farm worker dispute may be falling apart. "Something has happened," Meany said. "We reached an agreement then all of a sudden nothing." In a speech to the AFL-CIO . Maritime Trades Department, he said there had been no con- . tact with the Teamsters since the tentative peace pact was announced Sept. 28 in Washington. ; Efforts to contact the Teamsters have been unsuccessful, he said. MEANY AND Teamsters ; President Frank E. Fitzsim- mons on Sept. 28 disclosed an '"agreement in principle" with United Farm Workers President Cesar Chavez that would ; end" the long and sometimes " violent jurisdictional fight be-, tween the two unions. ,' Details of the agreement were withheld pending examination of the legal language by counsel for Meany and Fitzsimmons. Meany said all that remained was final approval by himself and Fitzsimmons. Meany gave no Indication as to the nature of the problem but said a full report would be made during the AFL-CIO , Convention, which opens here Thursday. IN CALIFORNIA, Chavez said he was unaware of what problem has stalled the signing. i just know they haven't signed. As far as we are con-c e r n e d, we don't have an agreement at this point," he said. Chavez refused to predict whether the. tentative settlement eventually would be signed. A spokesman for the growers, John Giumarra Jr., declined comment but reiterated that table grape growers still considered their farm labor contracts with the Teamsters legally valid. Many growers signed with the Teamsters this year after, their pacts' with the UFW expired. Under the tentative agreement, the Teamsters were to have repudiated contracts signed this year with California grape growers and leave organizing of field hands to Chavez's union. The Teamsters would retain Jurisdiction over all other workers, such as In the canneries, warehouses and pack-. ing sheds. disappearance was a trail of blood leading from his apartment to the Detroit River. Police said the watchman, Vaughn Nicholson, 39, disappeared Sunday night from his one-room apartment over the Bob-Lo ticket office at the foot of Woodward. A trail of bloodstains was found leading from the apartment to the water's edge and police said there was also evidence that a body might have been dragged from the apartment to the water. Skin divers from the police Harbormaster Bureau spent about nine hours dragging the river near the spot Monday but found no body by nightfall. The search was to resume at daylight Tuesday. Nicholson, a native of Hia-wassee, Ga., was last seen alive at 10 p.m. Sunday night by another Bob-Lo employe, Frederick Morin, 62, of 631) Woodward, who reported he was attacked near the Bob-Lo offices by two men who fled after looking at him and saying "This Isn't Vaughn." Morin returned to the apartment at 8:30 a.m. Monday and found the trail of blood. He also told police he saw a third Bob-Lo employe, Roy Lockaby, 46, running from the building when he arrived. Police described Lockaby as Nicholson's roommate at th apartment and said they were searching for him for questioning in the disappearance. Lockaby was described as being 5 feet 9, 145 pounds, and toothless.

I WO JIlOl At Taxi Garage Detroit homicide officers are seeking a motive for a shooting at a Checker Cab garage Monday that left two men seriously wounded. According to Sgt. Heinz Schweiger of the homicide section, two men began firing as they entered the office of taxi-cab owner Exavor Giller on the second floor of the garage on Trumbull opposite Tiger 'Stadium. Giller was wounded in the spleen but pursued the gunmen to a nearby stairwell, firing back at them as they ran down the stairs, police said. Henry Jefferson White Jr., 23, of Detroit was found In the stairwell, wounded In the neck and right leg, police said. A revolver was on the f 1 o o r nearby, they said. "At this point, I don't think it was an armed robbery," said Schweiger. "The investigation is continuing." Both Giller and White are In serious condition at Detroit General Hospital. AFTER THE shooting police arrested a man in a telephone booth near the garage. Neither he nor White has been charged, pending further investigation, Schweiger said. Giller owns a small fleet of taxicabs that operate out of the Checker garage. Checker, an association of independent taxicab owners, operates several garages in the city.
