A militant Puerto Rican group claimed responsibility.  The bombs were triggered within a half-hour of each other in a four-block area, the first at 2:55 a.m. Jagged glass from shattered bank windows flew for hundreds of feet, but no injuries were reported.  All the explosions were caused by bombs placed on outside window ledges.  “It was a bomb — definitely a bomb,” said Police Lt. Edward Cash at the scene of the first blast at the Banco de Ponce at 49th street and Rockefeller Plaza.  Police said there was no advance warning.  Other Blasts  The three other explosions hit a Chemical Bank branch office in the Exxon building at 43th street and Avenue of the Americas, the Union Carbide Building at 48th street and Park avenue and Lever House at 53rd street and Park avenue.  A fifth bomb, placed in a car in the Wall Street area, destroyed the vehicle and blew out plate glass windows in five nearby banks. No injuries were reported.  Police would not definitely link this explosion to the others but said a connection was likely.  A woman who did not give her name told the Associated Press in a telephone call about  worked several hours knocking out the jagged remains.  A few guards and custodians were in the buildings but all escaped uninjured.  “I’m in a daze; I don’t want to talk about it,” said a night watchman at the Lever House as he walked off to phone his wife.  Police said it was the most explosions they could remember going off in a single night in the city.  “We were extremely lucky that there were no injuries,” said Cash. “It was a mild night and lots of people were walking about.”  Don Brent, a business man from Toronto, surveyed the smashed windows in the Manufacturers Hanover Trust bank branch in the Union Carbide building and said: “I was sleeping in the Roosevelt hotel and it just about knocked me out of bed.”  He said this was his first visit to New York.  Saw No One  Al McCullagh, a security guard at Union Carbide, said, “I thought the building was collapsing. I didn t know what was going on. I had just shut the garage next to the flower shop on the ground floor but I didn’t see anything on the streets or anybody passing by.”  The woman who called the AP had a Spanish accent and gave her message at a calm but speedy clip after a man had admonished, “Listen carefully.”  551 Calves Butchered in Price Protest  BOMB DAMAGE — Police search the debris-filled entrance to an Eastern Airlines office, damaged in one of a series of bombings in New York early Saturday.

Richard Wertzberger, a packing company spokesman, said the calves came from members of the National Farmers Organization (NFO* in central and southwestern Wisconsin.  The alternative was to kill the animals with knives and guns and dump them into pits, the National Farmers Organization says.  NFO beef producers earlier this month slit the throats or shot 636 calves and buried them in trenches near Curtiss, Wis. The action was to dramatize the effects of high feed prices which cause farmers to lose money in fattening cattle for market.  Hold Livestock The NFO says farmers profit in some way by having the veal shipped to Honduras: they can continue holding livestock from the market in hopes prices will rise, they call attention to their nlight, gain goodwill and get food to the needy.  Most of the IOO- to 125-pound calves were trucked to the Dubuque Packing Co. from Wisconsin, with lesser numbers from Iowa and Illinois.  The company called in about 70 of its 3,000 employes Saturday — their day off — to process the estimated 70.000 pounds of veal.

The basic idea is to get them together so they can come to an agreement on nuclear arms limitation by the time Brezhnev visits Washington early next summer, a top U. S. official said.  Word of the meeting came at a luncheon given by Secretary of State Kissinger for Soviet Foreign Minister Gromyko.  In a luncheon toast, Kissinger assured the Soviets: “Through the changes of administration, there has been one constant recognition that the peace of the world depends on the degree to which the U. S. and the Soviet Union can agree to common objectives.”  Tough Bargaining  The Soviets are eager to size up Ford first-hand to sec if he intends to follow the policies of the Nixon administration regarding detente.  Kissinger acknowledged earlier that he was involved in tough bargaining with Brezhnev, but said he was optimistic they would reach some understanding on nuclear arms limitation.  They met for more than five hours in two sessions Friday and were to begin a final round of talks Saturday, but the meeting was delayed for unexplained reasons.  After Friday’s negotiations, the two sides issued a statement in which they said the “detailed consideration” given to offensive nuclear weapons was “use-  73rd street and Broadway.

(AP) -Members of the Webbie Armstrong family have found a way to bent the high cost of electricity. They’ve unplugged their all-electric home.  “I think it’s something that everybody may have to do s o o n e r or later,” Mrs, Armstrong said this week — the family’s third without power.  They now have no operating air-condittoner, t e I e v i sion, washer, dryer, stereo, stove, hot water heater, electric can opener, hair dryer, clock, refrigerator or toaster.

He said the lights will stay out until the rates go down, which  “probably won’t happen very  soon.”  He estimated his weekly fuel costs are now about $9.70, including kerosene, quarters to wash at the laundromat, and ice.  Mrs. Armstrong buys a block of ice every three days and crams it in the refrigerator’s freezer compartment to keep groceries fresh. She buys her meat daily and cooks on a kerosene stove.  Armstrong insisted the entire family, including two sons and a daughter, enjoys the new life style.  “I find I’ve got more time now,” he said. “I’m less tense, more relaxed. I talk to my kids. We do things together.”  Time once spent watching television is now used for reading or playing Monopoly, checkers or gm rummy. Mrs. Armstrong also listens to a nightly mystery story on a battery-powered radio “We really wanted to see if we could do it,” she said. “And we are doing it ”  Why Reluctant  U. S. officials have suggested privately that Brezhnev and his colleagues were reluctant to reach agreement with Nixon because they were uncertain of the then-President’s future in office.  With a new administration in J Washington, Kissinger hopes  1  now’, however, to achieve the “conceptual breakthrough” that 'escaped him last March in Moscow and eluded Nixon at the summer summit.
