Four other r vere held for questioning, but the man police sought was not in the apartment. Inspector Peter Hagan said two San Lcandro and five Los Angeles officers went to the apartment be- lieving the man they sought was there. Hagan gave this account: Sgt. Frank Gaines of Los Angeles Central Division identified himself and tried to enter the apartment, but the door was slammed shut, knocking him over. Gaines spoke in English but the men in the apart- ment spoke Spanish. Sgt. Thomas Hooker of Los Angeles Central detec- rives Uien shot off the lock and entered the rocrn. Three officers outside apparently thought Hooker's shot had come from inside the room, and one of them shot Beltrang Sanchez as he tried to escape through the window. Apparently thinking Gaines had been shot, other officers shot Guillermo Sanchez inside the room. None of the men in the room was armed. Hagan said. Hagan said the officers were seeking a man. be- lieved to be armed, who was wanted in connection with the shooting of Wilma Jean O'Connell. 31. kil- led in front of her San Leandro home June 5. Nation's Economy Shows Slight Gain WASHINGTON (AP) A tiny gain in national output and a tiny slowdown of inflation have been acclaimed by administration economists as the long- awaited turning point for an ailing economy. The broadest measure of economic growth, real Gross National Product or "real GNP." gained three-tenths of 1 per cent in the April-June quarter, the Commerce Department announced. This followed two quarters of decline: although insignificant in amount, the trend indicated the busiaess slowdown had hit bottom and turned up. It seemed to be a guarantee against any serious reces- sion. High administration officials provided this fore- cast of limited and gradual gains during the rest of this year and into 1971: small further increase in real GNP in the present quarter, followed by a larger jump in the fourth amounting only to a growth rate of 2 to 3 per cent over the next six months. further rise of unemployment. Officials believe the worst is yet 10 come. ever, though the unemployment rate dropped to 4.7 per cent in June after hitting 5 per cent m May. It will go above 5 per cent in some of the months ahead, administration economists predicted, before a gradual improvement takes hold. It was judged that unemployment would not dip to 4 per cent until possibly late 1971. easing of interest rates, reflected by this fall in slightly better mortgage terms and home building activities. gradual slowing of price increases, to a rate (See M, Col. I) Market Gains On Broad Front The stock market continued its bull-drive today with stocks gaining sharply on the broad front. In- dustrials reported a gain of 9.72 on a volume of 9 million shares at 1 p.m. New York time. Advancing issues led declines by almost 5 to 1. Analysts said strong second-quarter earnings gains precipitated the rally, which pushed the Dow Thursday above its previous recovery high of about 720 set after the market lows registered in late May. Thursday's volume broke the 12 million mark. Analysts are looking to break 15 million volume to- day." The Weather Some high cloudiness but mostly sunny today and Saturday.

WASHINGTON (AP) Prin- cess Anne of Great Britain told House Speaker John W. McCor- mack. D-Mass., today she thought that selection of the bald eagle as the U.S. national bird was "rather a bad choice." The royal observation came after her brother. Prince Charles, wondered why the United States had chosen the eagle. The prince who, with the princess, is in Washington for a three-day sightseeing tour as the guests of President Nixon and his family, put his question to House Minority Leader Ge- rald R. Ford of Michigan dur- ing a visit to the Capitol. Ford couldn't answer and nei- ther could a Capilol guide who accompanied the party that in- cluded Tncia Nixon and her sister and brother-in-law. Julie and David Eisenhower. The discussion concerning the choice of the eagle took place in the Capitol's Statuary Hall. Earlier. McCormack.

Retailers in such West End supermarkets as Carnages said the women, apparently spurred by television speculation of food shortages, poured into the shops late Thursday and this morning. They bouaht beef, bacon and other imported foodstuffs re- garded as likely to become scarce, but by midday grocers reported business tempo back to rormal and the shelves full again. Minister of Agriculture .fames Pnor called in 46 lea- ders of food manufacturing, di-anbuting. wholesale and re- tail industries. He said afterwards: "I was glad to receive their assurance that the supply and stock situa- tion is well under control and that there is no need for Pnor said there is ro need f o r price hikes. However, prices were rising. Rump roast, for example, went up from SO to 96 cents a pound. CHICAGO Cali- fornia girls here, to attend a Japanese-American convention were stabbed, one fatally, in what appeared 10 be an attack by a sex fiend. The assault occurred in a seventh-floor room at the Pal- mer Hcuse. one of Chicago's fi- nest downtown hotels, late Thursday night. Police sealed off the sixth and seventh floors and began interrogations. Both victims suffered slashed throats. The nude body of Eve- lyn Okubo. IS. was found in the bathtub. Carol Yamada. IS. was found on a bed. The hands of both giris had been tied behind their backs and their threats had been slashed. Miss Yamada was taken to Henrotin Hospital, where emer- gency surgery was performed. A physician there said the at- tacker had failed to sever the jugular vein. She was listed in fair condition and police hoped to ?et a statement from her. Attend Convention Both girls came to Chicago from Stockton. Calif., to attend the 21st bienniel convention of the Japanese-American Citizens League. The attack disrupted the convention and League offi- cials conferred about whether to continue the meetings. One source said about 200 of the women who were attending the convention were so terrified they refused to sleep in their rccms the remainder of the night and instead gathered in a banquet hall while male dele- gates guarded the doors. There had been reports that the attack might have had a ritualistic overtone. Police Commander Paul McLaughhn said three notes were found m the room, and that one said: "It Doesn't Hurt." ?.IcLaughlin. however, re- fused to speculate about the type of person or persons who may have attacked the girls. He said there was no suspect m custody. Attend Party The girls had attended a par- ty in an eighth-floor room shortly before the attack, police said. Their roommate. Pati Iwataki. IS, Los Angeles, also attended the party, and it was Iwataki who discovered the .ittack. She had gone to the room, police said, after the two girls had gone there to obtain a radio and had failed to return. Deputy Chief of Detectives William Murphy said notes had been made, perhaps by the kil- ler, wihh a black fell pen on white paper and left in the room. Murphy said the room was soaked with blood. It was smeared on the bathtub in which Miss Okubo was found, and soaked the bed on which Miss Yamada lay and was splashed across the nighttable next to the bed. The room was (See Coi. -1, A4) 2 Victims Wanted To See U.S. STOCKTON Japanese American girls stabbed in a Chicago hotel room were described today as good "church goers" who "wanted to see America." Dons Yamada. the mother of Carol Yamada. said her daugh- ter and Evelyn Okuba had jusl graduated from Stagg High School and were active in the Junior Japanese-American Citi- zens League. "She and Carol chummed around together for a long time." Mrs. Yamada said. Mrs. Yamada said she and her husband. Ren. received a call after her daughter reached Chicago and she was "really happy" and enjoying the tnp. "She said she would like to see America and decided to go to the convention in a car pool for that Mrs. Yamada said. Three girls and three boys traveled together, she said. Mrs. Yamada said she would fly to Chicago to see her daugh- ter and that her husband might join her later. "He wants to go but his busi- ness partner is on vacation and we can't contact him." she said. Commission Report Sub-Human Life For Thousands Mayo, Counselor to Nixon, Quits WASHINGTON (AP) Rob- ert P. Mayo resigned today as a presidential counselor. He will become president of Ihc Feder- al Reserve Bank of Chicago. Mayo, a counselor to Presi- dent Nixon since his old job as budget director was abolished in July 1 reorganization, will take up his new duties July 29. Nixon wrote the departing of- ficial that he was accepting the resignation "with deep adding, "but it pleases me to know that you will be con- tinuing to contribute jour great talents to the cause of public service." In a letter to Nixon. Mayo wrote: "It is with mixed emo- tions that I leave Washington. It has been the thrill of a life- time to work so closely with you personally and with Ihc su- perb team you have gathered around you. I particularly ap- preciate your expression of con- fidence in me by suggesting that I might be considered for a Cabinet post after the turn of the year." Pnor to his resignation, there had been speculation that Mayo eventually might become se- cretary ol 'he treasury or se- cretary of commerce. The 54-year-ad Mayo had been budgst director from the stan of the Nixon administra- tion until the new Office of Ma- nagement and Budget, under the direction o{ George P. Shultz. was created July 1. Before joining the Nixon ad- ministration. Mayo had been a vice president of Chicago's Con- tinental Illinois National Bank and Trust Company. Prior to that hi: had spent 19 years as a career Treasury Department official. WASHINGTON (AP) Doc- tors investigating conditions o.' migrant farm workers in Texas and Florida say they found "thousands of our fellow citi- zens manipulated and managed in such a way as to reduce them to sub-human status." In preliminary reports to a Senate subcommittee, the doc- tors told o! medieval living quarters, dangerous working conditions, a death rate for mothers and infants up to a third higher than the national average. The dcotors are part of the Field Foundation team tha: sent shock waves acros the na- tion three years aco with its re- port of hunger Cmd malnutrition in Mississippi. "The field tnp to Mississippi in May 1967 uncovered hunger and misery of a degree which startled and outraged us." the report said. "The succeeding three years have shown modest improve- ment but this time in Flo- rida, we find destitution and ex- ploitation of men, women and children which wb would be ashamed to describe were we not so horrified by their pre- sence." In Texas, the report contin- ued, "Intestinal parasitism was a str.kmg finding m Rickets. c u r y pellagra, anboflavi- nosis. Vitamin A deficiency and protein malnutrition were prominent." Dr. Henry S. Lipscomb of the Baylor CoUcge of Medicine in Houston said "recently there have been three deaths from strong indication of the lack of basic medical service and innoculations in this Dr. Ray Wheeler said one Florida camp on the edge of a swamp "was, I am certain, the closest equivalent to slave quarters that could exist in what we consider to be a free society."
