Fliers PANMUNJOM, Korea North Korean Communists Sat- urday released two American helicopter pilots forced down by gunfire last May, then claimed the U.N. Command had acknowl- edged the pilots committed a border violation on an espio- nage mission. A United Nations Command spokesman confirmed delivery of a receipt for the prisoners ad- mitting they committed espion- age. But he said later, that the admission "is, of course, mean- ingless." Capts. Ben. W. Stutts, 31, Florence, Ala., and Carleton W. Voltz, 27, Frankfort, Mich., the pilots, were flown to Seoul, where doctors said they were in good condition. They were to rest overnight in the U.S. Army hospital be- fore questioning by intelligence officers. The pilots, who quickly changed from drab cotton Com- munist uniforms into U.S. Army khaki, were not permitted to talk to newsmen. In Seoul, the U.N. spokesman, U.S. Army Col. George Creel, ex- plained the advance receipt and its admission of espionage in a statement. Col. Han Joo-kyung, the Com- munist Korean secretary, said the two fliers had signed a statement saying they were on a criminal mission when their helicopter was forced down by Communist ground fire on May 17, 1963. Rank-File Teamsters File Suit Aim Knockout Punch at Hoffa; Demand Funds WASHINGTON six members of the Teamsters Un- ion have filed suit demanding that the union president, James R. Hoffa, and his top command repay the union money that Hoffa and other officials have used to defend themselves in criminal trials. The six rank-and-file Team- sters, in the U.S. District Court suit Friday, also asked that the Rockefeller Scores Upset Win in Oregon Planes Crash Weather Smiles on Anglers Over Vienna; Walleyes Cooperate 6 Are Killed By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Weather smiled on Minnesota fishermen Saturday for opening VIENNA, Austraia (AP) of the summer season and early Two light planes collided over Vienna today -and crashed into reports indicated the walleyes were cooperating, too. a downtown section.

Estimates of the money al- ready spent are in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. It was another in a series of sharp blows to Hoffa's position as boss of the nation's biggest union. Hoffa Tried For Fraud Even as the suit was entered here, Hoffa was sitting in a Chicago courtroom on trial on charges of conspiring to de- fraud the union in a loan scheme. He also is appealing an eight- year jury-tampering conviction in Chattanooga, Tenn. all of which costs money and keeps him from supervising the day- to-day affairs of the Teamsters, which he has run with an iron hand. Some union sources have questioned whether Hoffa can remain in power, in the face of the court actions, without the backing of the union treasury. Others point out that Hoffa has weathered some hard storms in the past. Started Fuss Before The six Philadelphia Team- sters who filed the suit are part of the same group who kicked off a fuss in the Teamster high command several weeks ago over the question of Hoffa's legal fees. Teamsters general counsel, Edward Bennett Williams, agreed with the Philadelphia group that such expenditures are illegal. Some executive board members demanded a full board meeting to consider the question further. No such meeting has yet been scheduled on the issue but Hof- fa said he would stop using un- ion money to pay his huge legal costs until the Teamsters can get another legal opinion on the matter. The suit follows a recently an- nounced Labor Department in- vestigation into the union's pay- ment of Hoffa's legal bills. Kissing Rock Moved to New College Campus CATHAGE, 111.

Etna increased in volume and speed today as a crack in the volcano's central crater steadily widened. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Four persons died as the re- sult of a headon collision on Highway 241 east of St. Michael Minn., early Saturday. Another man died in a beadon collision near Detroit Lakes. Killed outright in the St. Mi- chael crash about a.m. were Yvonne lilies, 22, and Claudette Dahlheiden, both of St. Michael and Charles Lew- is Jr., 19, New Hope. Dennis Kemmetmueller, 19, Rogers, died shortly after being taken to University of Minnesota hospitals. In critical condition is Ronald Ende, 19, Rogers, driver of one of the cars. Miss lilies drove the other car, officers said. St. Michael is in Wright County. Killed in the collision on High- way 59 north of Detroit Lakes was Vernon Heinen, 21, rural Detroit Lakes. He was a pas- senger in a car driven by Doug- las Vogt, 21, Detroit Lakes. Vogt was hospitalized in criti- cal condition. Injured were the second driver, Alvin Schornack, 27, Detroit Lakes, and two pas- sengers in the Vogt car, Virgil Heinen, 21, twin brother of the victim, and Patsy Gullickson, 19. A Friday accident killed George B. Casselius, 69, Prior Lake. His car was struck as he made a turn on a Scott County road four miles south of Prior Lake. Driver of the second car was Edward T.

PAUL (AP) The Asso- ciation of County Commis- sioners was mapping today a strong stand against the pro- posal to cut back federal allot- ments of highway aid to coun- ties to 50 per cent from the two- thirds they now get. James Marshall, highway commissioner, advanced the proposal Friday, saying it was necessary to provide added money for carrying out the state program. It would mean an an- niRnway toll to 245> six nual loss of about million J: for the counties. Marshall's statement came at a scheduled meeting of the Leg- islative Highway Interim Com- mittee but the session was aban- doned because the group failed to muster a quorum. Ralph Keyes, executive secre- tary of the commission's group, said he would have a strong statement opposing the plan at the committee's next meeting.

(AP) New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller swept to an upset victory in the Oregon primary that turned the tables on Henry Cabot Lodge and set the stage for a possible California alli- ance between the two Republi- can presidential hopefuls. Lodge men, stunned by the setback in an Oregon race they had expected to win, headed for Los Angeles to talk over their next move. Rockefeller, the only personal campaigner in a six candidate field, left Lodge well behind in second place in Oregon's Friday balloting. There were reports the Lodge forces were ready to throw their weight behind Rockefeller in California's primary June 2. Paul Grindle, a leader of the campaign for the ambassador, denied this. Plan Further Study Grindle said, however, that the high command of the Lodge movement would explore the si- tuation in general and Cali- fornia, in particular at the Los Angeles meeting. Rockefeller and Arizona Sen. Barry Goldwater, who ran third in Oregon, are alone on the bal- lotts here. No write-in votes will be counted in their head on clash for 86 GOP national con- vention delegates. Whatever the Lodge organiza- tion does in Calitornia, Rocke- feller hoped the Oregon victory would thrust him toward anoth- er triumph there. In Underdog Role Rockefeller, cast as the under- dog in Oregon, has the same role in California. The Oregon triumph awarded Rockefeller 18 convention votes. It was a write-in upset in the New Hampshire presidential primary that first propelled Lodge absent and undeclared into the battle for the Republi- can nomination. Knock Out Lodge Rockefeller's Oregon upset victory appeared to have knocked him out of it. Goldwater and former Vice President Richard M. Nixon ran far behind Rockefeller and Lodge in Oregon. Sen. Margaret Chase Smith of Maine and Pennsylvania Gov. William W. Scranton, who neither campaigned nor had Oregon allies at work, split a relative handful of primary votes.

The committee has been talk- ing behind closed doors about ways in which the Kerr Mills Act, basis of the present state- federal health program, could be revamped to induce the states to make more health care available to more people. This kind of legislation is giv- en a much better chance of go- ing to the House with commit- tee backing than is President Johnson's proposal for Social Se- curity tax financing of hospital and nursing home benefits. Proponents within the com- mittee of the Social Security ap- proach may make the gesture of seeking a vote, but there is no indication that the majority, which has rejected such meas- ures for years, is not still firmly in control of the tax-writing group. 067, Goldwater Nixon (Concluded on page 2) Ike in Good Health What County Taxes Are Doing Coming Up 20.
