Police said the train ploughed into the car at a dirt crossing about 100 feet east of North Lincoln. The driver, Marion P. Roberts, 51, of 701 Sherman, told officers that she was unfamiliar with the area, and had turned onto the dirt crossing during a deluge of rain that obscured vision. The car ran off the road and became lodged on the tracks. She left the car to obtain help, and had just returned when she saw the headlight of the oncoming train. Unable to move the vehicle, she stood beside the tracks and watched as the train smashed into it. Police identified the engineer as James L. Wilson, 52, of San Bernardino. Wilson said he saw the stalled car, but was unable to stop his train in time to prevent the accident.Index Church........................10,11 Classified .............12.13,14{ 15, IC Comics.............................8 Dear Abby.........................C Editorial..........................4 Entertainment..... ...............7 Faniil> Page.......... .............C Good Health .......... ...........17 Horoscope Ferguson, volcano, second place; and Dennis Garruth, strength of tape, third place.

ISWORLD at a glanceAgnew to Saigon? WASHINGTON AP - The White House today declined to cpnfirm or deny a broadcast report that Vice President Spiro T. Agnew will go to Saigon Jan. 28-presumably to conduct post-peace^ agreement talks with President Nguyen Van Thieu.

Lam told newsmen that Saigon has no objections to the agreement that the United States and North Vietnam have agreed to in principle but is seeking clarifications on technical annexes to the main document before Henry A. Kissinger and Le Due Tho resume negotiations in Paris Tuesday. Lam noted that President Nixon's emissary. Gen. Alexander M. Haig Jr., is returning to Saigon for another meeting with President Nguyra Van Thieu. Haig conferred with Thieu Tuesday and Wednesday, then moved on to Cambodia, Laos and Thailand to brief the governments there. He had been expected to return to Washington today, but the White House said he would return to Saigon. The United States and North Vietnam announced Thursday that Kissinger and Tho will resume negotiations in Paris "for the purpose of completing the text of an agreement" to end more than a decade of war. The wording of the joint announcement and Lam's statements indicated that tentative agreement had been reached on the major points, including a cease-fire and the return of prisoners. But Lam said: "Unfortunately I qannot tell you the time and the date because we are still asking for some clarifications and sem« points are poiiits of concern to our government." Lam said a cease-fire "is not a main problem. We do not see any big obstacle in the acceptance of à cease-fire by the Republic of South Vietnam...The problem is that the conditions of the cease-fire are not yet very clear and we would like more clarifications about how the cease-fire is going to be implemented." Lam said the United States and South' Vietnam would not declare a unilateral cease-fire in South Vietnam tonight as South Vietnamese sources had reported earlier this week. But he left open the possibility of either a imilateral or bilateral cease-fire by Tet the celebration of the lunar new year on Feb. 3.Vandals cause big oil spill OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Vandals opened valves to four oil tanks and sent about 100,000 gallons of oil gushing into thè Oakland estuary of San Francesco Bay today, authorities said. A one-mile-long slick was reported oozing toward the East Bay communities of Alameda and San Leandro three miles away on the inland side of the estuary, but Coast Guard Lt. James Boyd said booms "should contain it in the estuary." There was no immediate report of any wildlife deaths from the oil. State Fish and Game agents were on the scene.

Sergeant whose men beat up a teacher wins reinstatement SAN DIEGO (AP) — A veteran police sergeant fired last Sept. 13 after his men beat up a'^school teacher was ordered reinstated today by San Diego's Civil Service Commission. Former Sgt. Edward Kenney was guilty of conduct unbecoming an officer Horse thief gets stud worth $1,000 Sheriff's deputies are looking for an unusually marked paint stud today. Its markings include the profile of a man's face "looking forward" on it&right rear nank. The seven-month-old brown and white paint apparently was stolen from its corral in Glen Avon by someone who went there and took it away in a horse trailer. Owner Nancy Hust, 23, puts its value at about $1,000 because toth sire and .dam were registered and because of the markings which also include a wide white blaze on its face and four whi.te stockings, to its kneCs. . Mrg^. Hust was given the colt shortly iffter birth when it was very sick, she s^id. Its mother died giving birth. Mrs. Hust the nursed the colt back to health. but a second charge that he is incompetent and inefficient was never proved, the commission said. While voiding dismissal, the commission still held that Kenney, 45, be suspended from Sept. 13 until, next March 13 and his pay forfeited for that period. In the incident last Sept. 2, witnesses said Patrick Ratell'e was dragged from his car and hit several times by police officers trying to clear a residential area in which an unlawful assembly had been declared because of an unruly crowd. Ratelle, 31, and three other high school teachers were in Ratelle's car, moving slowly behind the police skirmish line, the commission was told during a three-day hearing. Ratelie was knocked to the ground and at one time an officer broke his nightstick on the teacher, a reserve police officer testified. Although Kenney was not among the officers directly involved, he was Uieir supervising officer.^ His dismissal from the force by Chief of Police Ray Hoobler was appealed to the connnission. Kenney. after 21 years on the force, was accu^ of failing to give his m6n proper supervision and guidance and of inciting officers under his control to biitter Ralello's auto with nightsticks. By DONNA TICE Members of the Corona Host Lions <]1ub were shown a film yesterday taken of smog moving into the Corona area minute-by-minute from Los Angeles and . Orangé Counties. The film was taken by individual photos every seven seconds in March of 1971. The film began with a smog reading of .01 pollutants early in the morning, and showed the peak of a .38 reading late in the aftmioon, with the smog decreasing during the evening. An alert iâ called in the Corona area at .27 The film showed the actual movement of the smog from one side of the picture to the other covering mountains in the. distance and gradually covering every bit of the view Coronans have of nearby hills on clear days. THE FILM was shown by George Epperson, director of enforcement for the Air Pollution Control District of Riverside County. He also showed slides at the noon meeting of the history of smog awareness as well as of the things that cause smog. He noted that smog was discovered as long ago as 1309, when a man was beheaded for Causing pollution. In England in 1661 â man wrote that the air was so fouLthat it polluted the lungs. Epperson also showed the club the Ringlemann Chart, which is used to determine levels of smdce allowed and not allowed. He explained that some sm(^ is caused by agricultural burning, which is allowed. He noted that only 10 per cent of the smog is caused by agriculture and industry and that most of the rest is caused by vehicle exhausts. EPPEr.siON is in charge of supervision of APCD personnel who are engaged in law enforcement to ccmtrol smog. Hestated that there have been 70 citations issued since September for visible pollution from vehicles. Invisible pollution from vehicle exhaust is also a problem, he said.Another Norconian eyes schools post Joe Griffen of Norco became the third person to take out papers to run for the !>chM>i board in the April 17 flection.
