Art critic Miriam Dungan Cross tells about it in today's Entertainment Section. 93rd YEAR, NO. 100 HOME EDITION 25< SUNDAY, A MONTH for Evermore REV. Christian Rites Usher In Easter Compiled from AP and UPI The bells of Rome's 450 churches echoed across the city early today, tolling the perenni- al Christian joy of Christ risen on Easter. Their rippling chorus filled the darkness as thousands flocked to celebrate the major feastday. sunrise services, fashion parades and a ban-the- bomb march in England marked the celebration of East- er Sunday. Millions will have attended dawn religious services in what the weather bureau predicted would be chilly weather across much of the United States. In Jerusalem, joyous greet- inrrc nf 'TVirief ic .-ic-nti" n-HV, Itlbli the traditional response "He is truly risen" echoed in -the cav- ernous old Church of the Holy Sepulcher. They replaced screams, shoutings and fist fights of Holy Saturday. Police had to throw a cordon around Christ's tomb Saturday to hold back worshippers whose religious fervor turned to near hysteria at a holy fire, ceremony. But all was quiet at midnight as pilgrims of the five Eastern and Western sects who share Continued Page A, Col. 6 _ mpr Kimc Off Oakland Airport Strip United Airlines Boeing 720 jetliner carrying only its crew of seven and an off-duty stewardess veered off a Metropolitan Oak- land International Airport run- way Saturday night and sank two feet deep in mud. Flight No. 133, from Philadel- phia and Chicago, moments be- fore had debarked 38 passengers. None of the four-engine plane's occupants was hurt as it shot off the runway at about 70 miles an hour. The craft plowed along about 250 feet from the concrete strip and its landing gear sank into gooey soil where about .22 of an inch of rain had fallen over the past 24 hours. United Capt. W. C. Laidley of San Francisco said he did not know the cause of the steering failure. The off-duty stewardess was identified as Miss N. J. Lp- dahl, also of San Francisco. United officials said they would attempt to extricate the plane today. WEATHiR BAY AREA Cloudy to- day, tonight and tomorrow with chance of showers to- morrow. High today near 60. West to Southwest winds 10 to 20 m.p.h. Ml Long Wait Near End For South Bay Span By DAVE HOPE Twenty years ago an Army- Navy Board of Engineers pro- d u c e d recommendations for solution of the transbay traffic congestion problem. It proposed a new Southern Crossing between San Francisco and Alameda, and called for an electric train system connecting the downtown areas of Oakland and San Francisco through an underwater tube. It has taken a long, long time, but last Monday the California Toll Bridge Authority approved plans for a new bridge from San Francisco to Alameda. And next Friday the Bay Area Rap- id Transit District will conduct ceremonies on a vessel in the center of the Bay to mark com- mencement of construction of the tube. For a retired Army general, now residing in Oakland, whose life is already packed with mili- tary distinction, these events are an impressive tribute to his engineering judgment. He is Lt. Gen. Garrison H. Davidson, and he was chairman of the Army-Navy Board that opened studies of the Bay traf- fic problem in August, 1946, and submitted recommendations in a report to Congress the follow- ing February. Those recommendations look pretty good today. The Army-Navy Board pro- posed a crossing from the vicin- ity of Army Street, San Fran- cisco, to the vicinity of Fifth Continued Page 15, Col. 1 Crashes; 11 Aboard SAN DIEGO A Navy patrol plane from Moffett Field crashed Saturday night off Baja California with 11 men on board during anti-submarine exercises. A Navy spokesman said there was no trace of survivors. A massive sea and air search was launched immediately in the crash area 35 miles south- west of Guadalupe Island, about 185 miles south of San Diego. The plane, a P3 Orion, left its base at Moffett near Sunnyvale about 4 p.m. to rendezvous with the submarine USS Bashaw out of San Diego. The conning officer aboard the submarine said the plane crashed into the water at p.m. All available Navy and Coast Guard search aircraft were called from San Diego. The Bashaw remained at the scene. The destroyer USS Ly- man K. Swenson steamed from San Diego, and was expected to reach the search area short- ly before dawn this morning. Amphibious search planes cir- cled the scene dropping flares. Pilots reported they were un- able to find any debris. The Navy said the weather was overcast, with six-foot swells and visibility up to 15 miles. The names of those on board the plane were withheld pending notification of next of kin. 12 S.F. Families Routed in Blaze Twelve families were evacu- ated last night as a four-alarm fire of undetermined origin broke out in series of flats in the 500 block of Natoma Street, San Francisco. At the height of the fire, 45 pieces of equipment and 175 firemen were on hand to fight the blaze which leaped 100 feet into the air from the wood frame structures. Although several buildings were ablaze only the three floor structure at 567 Natoma Street was occupied. There were about 20 people in the 12 units. Owner Teresa Doely said the apartments were in the process of being remodeled. Natoma Street is a narrow street running parallel between Mission and Howard Streets. The alarm was sounded about 11 p.m.' Judy Williamson's Body Found in Hill s Monks Ask Ouster of Ky Junta By EDWIN Q. WHITE SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) Buddhist leaders united Saturday night in a demand for quick replacement cf Premier Nguyen Cao Ky's military gov- ernment with a civilian regime, then showed their power by stopping cold riotous demon- strations that had racked Saigon for a week. Moderates and conservatives joined in a call for "an elected congress in a very short time, a platform where the people can speak about the sovereignty of their nation." No date was spec- ified. Spokesmen previously have urged that Ky's plan for a Na- tional Assembly election .in 1967 be executed within two to five months. The hierarchy of the faith pro- fessed by most Vietnamese ap- pealed in a proclamation to "all the people wishing to show their opposition to the government" to contact Buddhist headquar- tivities, adding, "We will dictate the time and the place." Building up toward pressures of a type that toppled the gov- ernments of President Ngo Dinh Diem in 1963 and Premier Nguyen Khanh in 1965, the lead- ers announced the formation of an action committee called the Viet Nam Buddhist Forces. Heading the committee are Thich Thien Minh, director of youth affairs. Events of war and politics mingled elsewhere: Highlighting activities was a B52 strike that silenced a Viet Cong communications cen- ter in the D Zone jungle 35 miles northwest of Saigon. Newly rigged to carry up to pounds of explosives, the big jets attacked in Indian file rath- er than in the formation flight normally used in high-level sat- uration bombing. Though Saigon streets were calm for a change, there was an antigovernment demonstration by about. 500 students at: Dalat. a mountain resort 140 miles northeast of Saigon. Vietnamese rangers broke it up, using tear gas and firing shots into the air. More than 700 foreigners, American civilians and off-duty military personnel, drew quar- ters at U.S. Navy and Marine .installations in the Da Nang area after being removed from the city itself as a precaution. Navy river boats and Marine helicopters handled the exodus. Clouds Won't Let Go of Rain Today The skies will be overcast to- day but you can put on your Easter finery and sally forth without an umbrella. The weather bureau offers as- surance to Bay Area residents that it won't rain today. But the clouds may linger and produce rain again tomorrow. A tenth of an inch fell in downtown Oakland Saturday afternoon, inconveniencing last- minute shoppers for chocolate eggs, Jc thing accessories and maybe even a bonnet or two. Both Oakland and San Fran- cisco recorded highs of 61 de- grees and the temperature is expected to reach around that level today. For those who would like some sunshine to accentuate the spring hues of their clothing, things could be worse. Snow was predicted for northern states in the midwest and east and for the Pacific Northwest, the outlook was for heavy rain. JUDY WILLIAMSON: THE LAST HOPE ENDED Her bones and clothing found in isolated ravine. Parents on Trip, Not Aware of Discovery By GENE AYRES The parents of Judy William- son are on a rambling trip in Europe and friends and Albany officials have no idea where they are. They left April 1, knowing only that their daughter had been missing almost 2% years. Albany Police Chief Ralph Jensen Saturday night placed calls with an overseas operator "to all the American consuls in Europe." END TO WAITING If they can locate the Wil- iiamsons it wiii be his job to iifi whatever doubt they may still have had. Her skeleton was found Thursday in the moun- tains north of Santa Cruz. Dick Held, who operates Trav- el Service Inc., in the El Cerri- to Plaza, said he sold the Wil- liamsons travel tickets for a fiOO 10-w e e k tour, including round-trip air fare to Brussels and a Eurailpass, good all over Europe. "T h e r e 's no way to find Held said. Besides trav- el, they made no other ar- rangements, he added. "I think they were just going to play it bv. said a close family friend, Charles Moore, of 6755 Kenilworth Ave., El Cerri- to. NOBODY KNOWS "It's anybody's guess as to what direction they're going." Moore and other neighbors said Mrs. Williamson, excited about the upcoming trip, re- counted an itinerary, "but I can't remember he adds. But he thinks they probably intended to tour Holland, and go to Paris early in the trip. Charles and Nancy Catanese, of 65i Jackson St. can recaii Mrs. Williamson mentioning Germany, the Lourdes shrine, Italy, and Portugal. Catanese is to care for the Williamson's lawn. Other neighbors recall men- tion of Scandinavia, Spain and England. The Williamsons seemed anxious to get off the tourist paths, perhaps hire cars for side trips, and delay or move on as impulse seizes them. NEW OCCUPANTS Peter Hunson, 28, and his wife, Juanita, moved into 641 Jackson St., only three months before Judy disappeared. "It's pathetic that the Wil- Continued Page A, Col. 1 MASONIC PIN Judy wore it Murder Clue Hunt Underway By JEFF MORGAN A search which began 2% years ago in Albany has ended in a brush-covered ravine in the wild, rugged Santa Cruz Moun- tains. The skeleton of U.C. coed Judy Williamson, who vanished on her way to the campus Oct. 29, 1963, was found by four hik- ers near State Highway 9 about 15 miles north of Santa Cruz. It is presumed she was mur- dered. The cause of death could not be determined immediately. The skeleton was definitely identified Saturday by Judy's dentist, who examined the teeth in the skull. Although pathological tests on the bones had not been complet- ed, Albany Police Chief Ralph Jensen said the body could have been in the ravine more man two years. NOT NOTIFIED The girl's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Williamson, of 635 Jackson St., Albany, had not learned of the discovery by late Saturday. The Williamsons left last week for a 10-wpek four of Fu- rope. "They just wanted to get away from the house and from Jensen said. "We haven't been able to find them. We think they're in France." The investigation which Jen- s e n 's department has been carrying on since the disappear- ance has shifted from Albany to the Sheriff's Office in Santa Cruz. FIND SKELETON The skeleton' was found by Harold Crafton, 35, of Soquel, and Edward Hosier, 30, W: Hosier, 32, and Hobert A. Cox, 25, all of Santa Cruz. They were hunting for Redwood burls malformations sold com- mercially for decorative pur- poses. The men were at the bottom of a steep ravine about 100 yards off Highway 9 when they spotted what appeared to be an abandoned car near the road. They started to climb toward it when they saw the skeleton. The four men put part of the aKcictoii into a buckei, drove to Glen Harbor near Ben Lomond and called sheriff's officers. BONES SCATTERED Santa Cruz County Sheriff Douglas B. James said the bones had been partially scat- tered, apparently by animals. All of the clothes the girl was wearing the day she disap- peared, with the exception of her nylon hose and black shoes, were found at the scene. Also missing was a pearl and diamond ring which she had been wearing on her right hand, and her straw handbag. Judy's gold wristwatch and and her small U.C. Masonic Club pin were found on the skeleton. The tattered, weathered skirt matched exactly the magenta, black and green plaid Judy was wearing when she vanished. A small, three-inch stainless steel paring knife was found nearby. The sun and rain faded handle carried no fingerprints. RIBS KNICKED James said the breastbone and ribs 6f the skeleton contained some small knicks and indenta- tions, but it was not determined whether they were caused by knife blows or the teeth of car- nivorous animals. Deputies were to return to the scene again today to sift the earth around where the skeleton was discovered. The remains were taken to Santa Cruz, where they were tentatively identified from bulle- Cnntinued Pasje B, l JUDY'S WATCH Found with remains INDEX ON PAGE A
