Beefs; Ip Strike Forces JETS BOMB REO LINES Molester Captured At Salome By. JACK WEST A HULKING escapee from the state mental hospital, described as a' "very dangerous" child molester and kidnaper, yesterday nearly hitchhiked his way to complete freedom on an Arizona highway. But blind bad luck and lack of a ride led to the capture of 32-year-old Lyle Trip-lett, ending a day and a half of terror for Valley women and children old enough to understand the danger. Triplett, 6 feet 2 and weighing 230 pounds, was grabbed in Salome by Phoenix detective Lt. Robert Flack and Yuma'County Sheriff's Deputy Floyd Balliett. By a quirk of fate, Lt. Flack and the three Phoenix detectives, Capt. Richard Harrington, Richard Golden and Ren-ben Berry, were in western Arizona on another undisclosed investigation when Flack was pot on the escapee's trail. Triplett, who surrendered without a fight, told officers "the opportunity was there" so he escaped Wednesday morning from Arizona State Hospital to visit his 90-year-old aunt in California. Hospital officials had told Maricopa County sheriff's deputies that Triplett escaped when guards left him alone in an unlocked car on the hospital grounds for an instant. BUT TRIPLETT said after his capture that his only guard was a woman hospital employe who also had custody of two other mental patients. The hospital last night declined comment on Triplett's version of who was guarding him. The bespectacled fugitive, described as mentally retarded, was seized at the Mountain Pass truck stop in Salome. He worked a shift as kitchen helper there Wednesday night when he couldn't get a ride west. Cafe owner Alma Henckel recognized him from a description in The Arizona Republic and called authorities. Flack and Balliett arrested Triplett in the cafe employes' sleeping quarters. The convicted molester told officers he saw them as they (Continued on Page 12, Col. 2) Bridges Blasted BULLETIN SAIGON, Vietnam (AP) -Communist terrorists attacked downtown Thu Dau Mot, 15 miles north of Saigon, last night, exploding two mines and throwing several grenades, reliable sources reported-today.

Interior Unit Republic Washington Bureau WASHINGTON - Sen. Paul Fannin, R-Ariz., yesterday was assigned by the Republican conference to the Interior and Insular Affairs Committee which will pass on the Central Arizona Project. He also will take a seat on the Labor and Public Welfare Committee. Ex-Sen. Barry. M. Goldwater, R-Ariz., served on both committees. He quit the Interior Committee late in his term to take a place on the Armed Services Committee. Sen. Carl Hayden, D-Ariz., then asserted his seniority to claim a seat on the Interior Committee to keep Arizona's hand in the drafting of all Western water bills. The new senator said his sharing the Interior Committee assignment with Hayden will give Arizona a unified voice on reo lamation matters.

Goddard's office. In the next breath Udall urged the Arizona Legislature to give the State Parks Board more author* ty and more money so it could take over and develop (he additional land. Later, in the day the parks board accepted a sublease on the 13,000 ares and granted a concession to McCulloch Properties, Inc., for commercial recreational developments on 1,000 acres of the tract. The sublease to the parks board was issued by State Land Commissioner O. M. Lassen, who leased the land from Interior Secretary Stewart Udall. Under the concession McCul loch Properties will pay the state 2 per cent of gross receipts from the comjany's motel, dining, camping,'picnicking, bathing and boating facilities which it has or will build on the land. The firm must also invest $875,-000 in developments within 15 years. "I'm in the land disposal business when it comes to outdoor recreation," Udall declared. He recalled that last year he turned over five large regional park areas to Maricopa County, and said he hopes that Arizona will develop a good state park system. GOV. GODDARD concurred with the secretary and said that such park developments "might even attract people to Arizona." Udall said the land disposal (Continued on Page 10, Col. 5) Body Recalls Murdered Princes LONDON (AP) ~ A coffin unearthed by chance on a rubble-strewn London building site was identified yesterday as that of the child bride of one of the murdered "princes in the Tower." It recalled one of the most poignant chapters in English history. Inside the small lead coffin were the bones of Anne Mow- bray, duchess of York, who married Richard, younger son of King Edward IV, in a dazzling medieval ceremony 487 years ago yesterday. Anne was just over 5 when she wed the prince, who- was 4%. Ann died in 1481 at the age of 8 years, 11 months. The prince was murdered later, history tells, with his brother, Edward, in the grim Towerof London. Legend says the two star-crossed princes were smothered by p i 11 o w s jammed over their faces as they slept in each other's arms. "Hie date is uncertain; it was either 1483 or 1485.

Results of the strike by force of 18 to 24 Air Force jet fighHsombers became known as the government:;c�. ttnuad tts official stttnet about reeentlv ooanded Air OMntfani over" By LEWIS GUUCK WASHINGTON ('AP)-President ' Johnson asked Congress yesterday for $3.38 billion for foreign aid next year, the lowest such administration request since the.massive U.S. program began after World-War. II. In stressing economics along with the heed for economic-military assistance, to "those who would be free abroad," Johnson hopes to get congressional approval without the deep money cuts imposed by the lawmakers in some past years. HOWEVER, in a special 3,-500-word aid message, the President left the way open for fur- ther money requests later this year "if situations should arise which r e q u i r e additional amounts" of U.S. assistance to advance vital U.S. interests. Specifically, in earmarking more than $500 million for Red-pressed South Vietnam and Laos in the fiscal year starting July 1, Johnson asked for an open-ended military - economic authorization for Vietnamese aid. This would allow him to go to Congress directly for additional appropriations for the antiguerrilla campaign without first getting authorizing legislation. The aid program faces an uncertain future at legislative hands this year. Last year Johnson sought $3.5 billion and . got 3.25 billion, a comparatively modest! reduction. The record' administration request was $8.5 billion in 1952, and Congress has* sometimes lopped off more than $1 billion. REP. OTTO Passman, D-La., the most persistent and effective trimmer of foreign aid funds,, didn't issue any sweeping criticism of the President's proposals, as he has done frequently in the past. Sen. J. W. Fulbright, D-Arfc., the Senate foreign relations chairman who has guided many (Continued on Page 2, Col. 1) Ike bombing and strafing raids are aimed at demonstrating to Red China and North Vietnam that the United States does not Intend to back out of its commitments in S o lit h east Asia. They are launched against Red troops and supply routes running through Laos and into South Vietnam. Two jets were shot down by what were believed to be much improved antiaircraft guns during the Wednesday strike near the town of Ban Ban. Their pilots were rescued by helicopters with fighter escorts. THOSE TWO planes, an F100 Super Sabre and an F105 Thun-derchief, were the only ones mentioned in the Defense Department announcement of the incident. It was learned, however, that there were 18 to 24 heavily armed fighters in the jet force, most of which attacked bridge targets on key Route 7 while the others flew protective cover. Route 7 runs west from North Vietnam to the Laotian Plain of Jars through an area dominated by the pro-Communist Pathet Leo. Branches turn south and carry troops and supplies to Vietcong guerrillas in South Vietnam. BEFORE the Wednesday strike, it had been customary to send four to six planes, includ- (Continued on Page 5, Col. 1) Senner, Udall On Committees WASHINGTON (AP)-Each of Arizona's two Democratic members of the U.S. House has been assigned two committee posts;.

By MICHAEL PADEV Republic. Foreign Editor - WASHINGTON-A right, step in fat right direction. This is the best way to describe President Johnson's foreign aid message, Congress yesterday. First, President Johnson has cut down considerably the request of foreign aid supporters and has presented to Congress tiM lowest for- ��" U.S. Output Hits Record Analysis eign aid bill in the history of the program. The total sum for both military and economic aid stands at $3.38 billion. But it is certain that Congress will make further cuts, and it is possible that we might finally get an; aid authorization for less ttian.-$3 billion. THOUGH this foreign aid is still too high, the cuts are very welcome. Most welcome of all is the policy of the Johnson administration in favor of lower and lower foreign aid appropriations each year. The tendency of previous administration was the opposite, each year request for foreign aid became higher and higher. Second, the bulk.of the economic part of the program is devoted to "development loans" (a total of $2.21 billion, including Latin America). Most of these development loans are "easy" loans, i.e., they are made on easy terms. But they are not. out-and-out grants, as previous economic assistance used to be. MOST MILITARY assistance ($1.17 billion) continues to be allocated on a grant basis. This is inevitable, as very few countries in' the world can afford to buy modern arms or maintain modern equipped armies. Third, the program points out the value 'of private enterprise in assistance overseas. Tax credits are given to U. S. firms which maintain their own "for eign aid" programs abroad This is, actually, the best kind (Continued on Page 2, Col. 4) tm w The nation's economy expanded by 6.5 per cent in 1984 and reached a total of JB22.3 billion, the. Commerce Department said yesterday. This gross national product figure was very close to the $623 billion predicted by President Johnson's economic advisers at the start of the year. The gross national product, total of all private and public goods and services, rose to an annual rate of $633.5 billion in the final three months of the year, an increase of $5 billion over the previous quarter. The rise was smaller than the rate of increase for the first nine months of the year because . of automobile strikes in the final months. The GNP annual rate in the fourth quarter compared to an annual rate of $599 billion in the last three months of 1963.
