Reports from Salta. in the north said armed civilians occupied oil installations and. offices of the State Oil Monopoly' northeast of there in the towns of Tartagal and Vespucio. Later advices from Salta said the rebellion at Tartagal, 35 miles from the Bolivian border, had been stamped out. There Was no official confirmation here. Xor was there later word on the situa- tion at Vespucio, 20 miles south of Tartagal. Earlier in the day, civilian fol- lowers of ousted Dictator Juan D. Peron tried to seize the military barracks in Rosario near this cap- ital., but were routed by troops after tour hours of fighting, the government announced. Unofficial reports said 10 per ;sons were killed and 50 wounded Rosario. These advices said about 25 civilians were arrested. There were no estimates of casualties in the outbreak to the I north. I The government said the upris- ing in the north was similar to the one put down at Rosario. This indicated that Peronistas also were involved there. In both cases, the uprising was staged by armed' civilians. Insurgents in the north cut rail- way tracks and telephone lines, i first reports from Salta said. The army declared the uprising at Rosario had been crushed. Vandals' Spree May A special Centennial Preview Dinner Tuesday night opened Great Bend's participation in the Kansas Centennial next year.

U.S. Crime Rate Accelerates WASHINGTON f AP) Serious crime in the United States jumped 11 per cent over last year's fig- ures for the first nine months of this year., FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover reported today what he called "this accelerated crime rate" on the basis of preliminary figures covering most cities and rearly half of the country's rural areas. He urged more citizen coopera- tion with law enforcement agen- cies to meet the problem. Hooker noted that the first three months of this year wit- nessed a 7 per cent crime increase which grew to 9 per cent at the midyear mark and picked up an- from the waist and waved to the FBI agents. ''Thank you very much, he said. The government said the Soble brothers were born in Lithuania and during the 1930s roamed Eu- rope as Communist agents for the Soviet secret police.

Laptad said he thinks the teen- agers, including eight girls, start- ed their spree at a teen party about six weeks ago. The fad then spread, involving more teenagers as it continued. One random number broke the case. A girl called a local termite control, service, and got a "record- ing answer" service. She began her call by giving her name, and when the recording equipment was played' back the answering serv- ice turned it over to police. Laptad and Pratt talked to the girl; at school, and she implicated the oth- ers: Laptad said the youngsters freely admitted making the calls, hut some were reluctant to repeat some of the obscene or highly suggestive statements they, had used over the phone.

Police Chief Duane Moore and detectives Pratt and Laptad sat in on the conversation. Wagoner released the juveniles to their parents at this session since all were first offenders.

Chief Moore said that the many residents who called in reports af- ter receiving calls helped police "fit together" the pieces which led to solution of the case.
