(AP Photofax) Sinatra, 50, Engaged to Mia Farrow CHICAGO (AP) Eight stu- dent nurses were strangled and knifed to death in their dormi- tory early today in what one of- ficial called "the crime of the century." One girl escaped to tell the horror. A man wearing a bloodstained white shirt was seized in mid- morning in downtown Chicago after he had attempted to pur- chase an airline ticket to New Orleans. Police said later he did not rnatch the description, how- ever. In what FBI officials termed the worst crime in their recol leclion, the victims, aged 21 to 23, were killed one at a time during a slaughter binge. One yonng woman was stran gled in a downstairs living room of the two-story brick town house at 2319 E. 100th St., used by South Chicago Hospital as a dormitory. The scene is a mid- dle class neighborhood in the 22, Chicago; and Miss Nina Schmale, 21, Wheaton, HI. One body was found in an up> stairs hallway, and three in of two upstairs bedrooms. Miss Amurao was given leavy sedation after telling her fory of the massacre and ilaced in a guarded room in South Chicago. Dr, Andrew Toman, the Cook County coroner, said, "This is the crime of the century. I've been a coroner for six years, and I've never seen anything like this." Miss Karris' body with her throat slashed and a knife wound in her chest, was found at the hallway entrance to the bathroom. In the east bedroom were the bodies of the Matusck, Wilkening and Jordan girls. Miss Matusek had been stran- gled, the others stabbed. The west bedroom held the bodies of Miss Pasion, who had been slabbed several times in the chest, Miss Schmale who was strangled, and Miss Gar- gullo whose throat was cut. Earlier, police said some of the victims appeared to have been shot. Veteran policemen exclaimed at the massive amounts of blood. Later, Coroner Toman said he found no bullet wounds on any of the bodies and said the mur- der weapon "probably was a large butcher knife, judging from the size of the wounds." The coroner said it was im- possible to tell immediately whether any of the dead nurses had been raped. Further labo- ratory tests would be neces- sary, he said.

(AP) Brigitfe Bardot, France's inter- nalional sex symbol, married wealthy German playboy Gunther Sachs today in a pri- vate ceremony lhat ended with kisses and an Irish loast. Miss Bardot repeated her marriage vows in French-ac- cented English before Nevada District Judge John liowbray. Sachs turned and kissed her. She gave him a big hug. Mowbray, an Irishman, salu- ted them with French cham- pagne and a toast from his fore- fathers "May the road rise to meet he said, "and may the wind be ever at your back." The film actress (hen turned to kiss each of the four male witnesses to the ceremony. The marriage took eight minutes. It was at the home of Las Vegas lawyer Bill Coul- thard, who arranged it through friends of Sachs and Miss Bar- dot in New York and Washing- ton, D.C. Miss Bardot and her new hus- the night at the lawyer's home and said they would fly this morning by chartered jet lo Mexico for a 10- day honeymoon. NEW YORK (API It's offi- cial. Frank Sinalra and Mia Farrow are engaged and they'll be wed sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The engagement was .an- nounced Wednesday by Ihe mother of the bride-to-be, ac- tress Maureen O'Sullivan. "I couldn't be more delight- the mother said. "Frank is a wonderful person and I know they'll be very happy together." Sinatra, 50, was causing teen- age girls to swoon as he sang with the bands of Harry James and Tommy Dorsey some years before his 21-year-old bride wag born. He has a son and a daugh- ter older than Miss Farrow. The age difference doesn't matter, Miss O'Sullivan said. "I know people who are an- tiques at 35 and others who can watusi at 70. Frank has always been absolutely sweet when I've seen him." Mia, who has been seeing Si- nalra for two years, has said, "I feel more at ease with Frank than with any boy my own age." Neither Sinatra nor Miss Far- row had any public comment on the engagement. He is in Lon- don, making the movie "The Naked Runner." She is on a shopping frip in New York and will return soon to Hollywood and her starring role in televi- sion's "Peyton her mother said. Before Sinalra left for Lon- don, he gave the blue-eyed, blonde Miss Farrow an engage- ment ring wilh a nine-carat, pear-shaped diamond. She de- scribed it as a "friendship ring" when newsmen first spotted it recently. In 1962 Sinatra gave a similar city's far Southeast Side. The survivor, Miss Carazo Amurao, 23, an exchange stu- dent from the Philippines, said she escaped death by hiding un- der a bed. Her story to police was semi-hysterical, but she described a lone killer with blond hair, 6 foot 1, and weigh- ing about 170 pounds. Miss Amnrao was quoted as one of several girls penned in an upstairs bedroom one of three bedrooms on the second floor. She said she was up- stairs in the house when Miss Gloria Davy, 23, of Dyer, Ind., first encountered the killer. It was first believed that she opened the door to him, but Ed- ward Sheehy, South Chicago police commander, said that it appeared he had entered through a rear kitchen window of the first floor. Some Progress Reported In Airlines Strike Talks Carazo Amnrao one of 10 Miss Amurao was quoted as saying she overheard him say that "he only wanted money to go to New Orleans and that he would not hurt us." As far as police could recon- struct the crime immediately, the intruder strangled Miss Davy and then went upstairs where five of the girls were in bed or ready lo retire. This was at about a.m. The killer bound the wrists of the five with stockings and locked them in the bedroom. Within an hour, three other student nurses returned lo the dormitory alter having finished their night shift duties at Ihe hospital a few blocks away. The killing possibly came during a struggle by one of the girls and the marauder. Besides Miss Davy, those killed were Miss Merlita Gar- gullo, 21, an exchange nurse from the Philippines; Miss Va- lentina Pasion, 23, of the Phil- ippines; Miss Pamela Wilken- NegroesrPolice Exchange Shots In Chicago Riot CHICAGO (AP) Mobs of Negro youths, throwing fire bombs and bricks, stampeded through two Chicago neighbor- hoods Wednesday night. It was the second successive night of violence on Chicago's WASHINGTON (AP) Air- line negotiations push forward today amid signs that some sub- stantial progress finally is being made toward ending the seven- day strike. A hint of definite progress came Wednesday night when Asst. Secretary of Labor James Reynolds, presiding over the talks, met separately with rep- resentatives of the five struck airlines Northwest, Trans World, Eastern, National and United. They reportedly discussed the national issues involved in the request by the AFL-CIO Inter- national Association of Machin- ists for wage increase and other benefits in a three-year con- tract. There was no disclosure of the outcome of the airline meeting with the Labor Department offi- cial, but a spokesman said to- day's session would be another joint meeting. Reynolds Wednesday likened the union-management impasse a log jam which might be eliminated quickly merely by moving one or two key logs. He cautioned against hopes for any quick settlement, pointing out that there had been no change in the union's position since its statement of minimum demands one week ago. Reynolds said the parties still are very far apart but he said "I don't think there is anything in the situation that cannot be resolved by the parties within hours if there is a real will to do it." Reynolds said both sides are aware of their responsibility to the nation to settle the disagree- ments and restore air service. The strike, estimated to be costing the airlines and labor ome million daily, is taking a heavy toll in the nation's great iummer industry the family racation. Resort spas across the nation reported many empty rooms and canceled reservations. Some hotels laid off workers. The struck airlines began lay- off workers in an attempt to hold down costs! Eastern Air- lines furloughed 180 of its work- ers in New Orleans Wednesday and National Airlines laid oft 194 workers. More than machinists walked off their jobs Friday after nearly year-long negotia- tions failed to produce an agree- ment. The strike has halted about 60 per cent of the nation's air travel.

Here is the night's scorecard: Twenty Negro youths were arrested and charged with ar- son, resisting arrest or disorder- ly conduct. Dozens more were seized by police but later released. More lhan a dozen policemen were hit by bricks, rocks and bottles but none suffered serious injuries. At least two neighborhood res- idents were hit by stray bullets and hospitalized. Scores of other persons were treated for injuries or hospi- talized with wounds ranging from cuts to possible skull frac- tures. Fire bombs started many blazes. Dozens of stores were looted. Broken glass from smashed shop windows littered sidewalks and streets. For the second day in a row, a gushing fire hydrant set off street fighting along Roosevelt Road near the Loop. Police turned off the hydrant, which had been turned on ille- gally although it is a summer tradition in Chicago lo cool off wilh gushing fire hydrants. Temperatures were in the 80s. Tuesday's disturbance had started the same way. The onlooking Negroes shout- ed "police brutality and claimed that police hit children wilh swinging nightsticks. Soon rocks and bottles began to crash in the police ranks. Many of the rock throwers were adults but some were only 10 or 11 years old. police charged the ragged lines of rock throw- ers, firing warning shots into the air. N'ohody was wounded daring the exchange of gunfire. Earlier, two Negroes received gunshot wounds in separate in- cidents. Both victims told hos- pital officials they had been standing in their apartments when bullets whizzed through windows, wounding them.

U. S. Gets 2 More M1G2U SAIGON, South Viet Nam (AP) American jet fighters blasted two MIG21S out of the skies over North Viet Nam with- in three minutes today after downing a slower MIG17 'Wednesday. All three MIGs were brought down by heat-seeking Sidewind- er missiles. As U.S. Air Force F4C Phan- toms were blasting the MIG21s, North Viet Nam's fastest jet fighter, U.S. B52 bombers pounded an area just south of the 17lh Parallel frontier where an estimated infiltrating Communist troops were be- lieved to be massing.

Buttell, 25, of Chil- licothe, HI., brought down the first Communist jet. "The MIG looked like a big, red barn said Buttell. "We shot him down with our first missile as he was on ths tail of an F105." Credit for the second MlGZl went to 1st Lt Ronald G. Martin of Lake Villa, 111., and 1st Lt. Richard N. Kriepa, 24, of Chest- erton, Ind. In the dogfight Wednesday four Navy Phantoms battled off six slower MIG17s which chal- lenged them as the Americans were providing a protective shield for U.S. planes bombing the Co Trai railway and high- way bridges 23 miles southeast of Hanoi. The Navy said one MIG was brought down by Lt. William M. McGuigan, 26, of Spearfish, of the I North Vietnamese capital. Capt. William J. Swender, 31, Important Message To All Women You can read a discussion, and documenta- tion, of one of the most revolutionary break- through in medical history, including the follow- ing facts: 1. Menopause is unnecessary. It can be pre- vented entirely. Younger women need never ex- perience it. And older women can, in most cases, be assured almost complete recovery from their symptoms. 2. Preventive treatment estrogen hormone therapy should begin before the onset of men- opause, preferably in your middle thirties. 3. The myth that estrogen is a causative fac- tor in cancer has been proved entirely false. 4. Menopausal symptoms can be avoided or cured. 5. Youthful appearance and vigorous energy can be retained through estrogen therapy for de- cades beyond the customary age of menopausal de- cline. Discover the "why" and how.

The three kills brought to 17 the total number of MIGs downed by U.S. pilots over North Viet Nam. Another is list- ed as a probable kill. Three MlG2ls have been reported shot down. While the air war kept up at a furious pace, ground action in South Viet Nam continued in a lull. U.S. and South Vietnamese military commands reported only patrol skirmishes.
