Wednesday in a fire that swept a threestory apartment and restaurant building on the Near North Side of the dead were children Most of the damage estimated by fire officials at was confined to the top two floors of the building housing the Gate La Margarita and a few other shops on the basement level The restaurant and shops were closed for the night at the time the fire started The cause of the fire was not determined immediately WASHINGTON UP Defense Secretary Melvin R Laird says he will recommend strong counter measures for any North Vietna mese retaliation against captured US troops following the unsuc cessful US commando rescue at tempt v We are considering other ac tions to free the POWs Laird told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in the first of several administration appearances on Capitol Hill Tuesday and today Lairds testimony before the Senate panel headed by antiwar critic J W Fulbright DArk was followed by his scheduled appear ance today at the House Foreign Affairs Committee which also had Secretary of State William P Rog ers set as a witness Laird told the Senate commit tee Tuesday that neither the res cue mission nor last weekends bombing raids into North Vietnam represent any change in US pol icy Laird said the Nixon administra tion will retaliate immediately if the North Vietnamese shoot down Bother unarmed US reconnais sance planes use the demilitarized zone for infiltration or shell South Vietnamese cities in viola tion of what he said was an under standing that accompanied the U S decision two years ago to halt bombing of North Vietnam The North Vietnamese deny this was the understanding I would recommend calling off the cessation of bombing should there be major violations of these understandings he added Republican committee members expressed pleasure with Lairds emphasis that the weekend ac tions were isolated events rath er than policy changes But Fulbright said he didnt see how the two moves would help the administrations announced policy of seeking to settle the conflict through negotiation He said the only ways to free US prisoners were to invade North Vietnam or negotiate a settlement Committee members fought un successfully to pin Laird down on the way the weekend actions would help bring peace in Viet nam 2 more casualties By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Two more Iowa servicemen have been killed

shreds of detail available about dramatic raid to release US prisoners Survives plane crash OASIS Wi Stanley Goodman 51 of Des Moines was reported in good condition in University Hospitals in Iowa City Tuesday night following Ihe crash of his light plane near here in the atternoon uJhc aircrafta twopassenger Cessna 150 hit the top of a nignlinc utility pole and then landed upside down in a cornfield about a mile west of this Johnson County town The piane was destroyed Goodman managed to walk to a nearby farmhouse and was taken to the hospital He was treated for lacerations a broken arr and other injuries WASHINGTON The Penta gon Tuesday added only tantaliz ing shreds of detail to the prison raid at Son Tay opening fertile areas for speculation but leaving the chief questions unanswered For instance leaders of the commando force an Air Force brigadier and an Army colonel were both stationed at Elgin Air Force Base in Florida Was then the force raised and rehearsed in the states or say in the Canal Zone and taken as a unit to a staging area at the last moment for security purposes It was a rather elaborate op eration said Pentagon spokesman Jerry Friedheim There was metic ulous training and the training oc curred at several places Why isnt further detail provid ed The idea of assaulting a prison camp was disclosed by Defense Secretary Melvin R Laird While surprise is important isnt there room for detail on such things as the size of the camp and eyewit ness accounts from some of the men who took part in a raid that is now history There are some pretty severe security problems involving the men who wentin and the prison ers Laird answered It would compromise intelligence sources and the safety of those This much of the picture has been supplied by official accounts snd questioning in the last two days Army and Air Force volunteers report suggests a force of 40 sped in helicopters across the North Vietnamese delta to the compound at the Red River bank town of Son Tay 20 miles west of Hanoi The raid was a complete sur prise It was 2 am with only a quarter moon A chopper was pur posely crashlanded in the com pound to make sure the force got inside At least 30 missiles were fired at the helicopters There was some ground fire too Somehow a guard tower was destroyed The volunteers fired their weapons when they had to per haps killing some of the compound defenders One volunteer was nicked by an enemy rifle round The force was inside for less than an hour ripping open cells with chain saws cutting torches and lock snips finding
