Woman Killed in Ride at Carnival BOSTON (AP) A woman was killed and 17 other persons were injured when a spinning carnival ride malfunctioned, hurtling the riders as far as 50 feet away. A spokesman at Massachu- setts General hospital said Mary Pero, 20, of Cambridge died at a hospital of internal in- juries suffered in 'the accident, which marred Bunker Hill day festivities Sunday in the Charlestown section of Boston. Boston police said the acci- dent occurred after a series ol disputes and fights among young people and carnival workers. Police said an operator of the ride had to leave his post after he was injured in a fight. A second operator came to the controls of the ride, which ap- parently malfunctioned as he attempted to operate it.

Presidential conduct in the IRS and wiretapping phases of the inquiry is expected to be in- cluded in a proposed broac charge involving abuse of the powers of office. The possible impeachable of- fenses that could result from the tax and dairy matters are fraud :md bribery. Nixon's refusal to comply with committee subpoenas could fur- nish grounds for an additional article of impeachment and also will be taken into consideration jy the members when they vote on their articles. And should Nixon defy a su- preme court brder to turn over .apes subpoenaed by special prosecutor Leon Jawcrski that ,vould almost certainly become another article of impeachment.

The signers asked the city council to "protect the people o: our community from the X- and R-rated movies shown at the Collins Road Drive-In" by re- quiring the drive-in to enclose or block the screen so the mov ies cannot be viewed from out side the theater. The petition was similar to one filed about a week ago in the clerk's office signed by six persons. It stated the movies show sex acts and violent crimes in a manner which glorifies them, have an impact on "impres- sionable" youth, and invade the privacy of persons nearby who don't want to see the films. Installation of a screen or enclosure, the petition said, would ensure that such movies 'would not be thrust on those who choose not to pay money to see such inovies."
