(AP) Police today named Snperior, Wis., parole vio- lator, Jamei R. McCarthy, 25, wanted in connection with the gun shot slaying of Rochester patrolman Floyd J. Haley. Macken said McCarthy should be considered armed and dangerous. No charges have been filed in the case. ROCHESTERTMinn. (AP) Slain Rochester patrolman Fbyd J. Haley was buried Wednesday night after receiving the re- spects of nearly mourners at St. Francis Roman Catholic Church. Haley's widow, Dawn, sobbed during the military services. She was accompanied by her four children, aged IS to 19. The couple had celebrated their 20th anniversary on Fri- day, two days before Haley, 40, was found dead along a private road to a Rochester bowling al- ley. The Rev. Francis Kuntz con- demned the morality that pro- duced the officer's slaying, and praised the bravery of lawmen who face the possibility of death on duty daily. An honor guard of eight Amer- ican Legion members fired three volleys at graveside services at Calvary Cemetery. Police led the motorcade over the nine blocks from the church to the cemetery. Mrs. Haley was given the American flag that covered the coffin of her husband, the city's first policeman to be shot down on duty. Meanwhile, officers of North, western National Bank of Ro- chester announced that more than has been collected for the family. BY NORTH KORtANS 3 Americans Die in Ambush SEOUL (AP) -Three Ameri- can soldiers were killed and about 15 others were wounded today in a North Korean am- bush on Korea's western front, the U.S. 8th Army reported. At least one South Korean soldier also was wounded. The victims of the Communist attack were riding in a truck in the U.S. 2nd Infantry Division area about 35 miles north of Seoul. The Communists bit the truck with grenades and opened fire from concealed positions with automatic weapons, the Army said. Soldiers on the track Immedi- ately returned fire and rein- forcements were rushed to the scene to engage the attackers. However, Communist casualties were not known, the Army said. The casualties were members of the U.S. 7th Infantry Division who were working in the 2nd Di- vision area, theiArmy reported. The attack took place north of the Imjin River along the west- ern portion of the Korean demil- itarized zone, an Army spokes- man said. No other details were avail- able. Another American was seri- ously wounded and his scout dog killed in another North Korean attack earlier today in the 2nd Division sector, the spokesman said. He said an American pa- trol about 500 yards south of the demilitarized zone was fired on by four or five North Koreans who were about 200 yards north of them. The distance between the two attacks was not announced. The 2nd Division guards 18% miles of the 151-mile armistice line in the vicinity of the Panmunjom armistice village. 'Easy Votes Are Worry To Democrats WASHINGTON (AP) The Democratic party will have to work hard next year to retain voters it traditionally has taken for granted: Negroes, big-city whites and liberal, young stu- dents, one of the party's top po- litical strategists said today. Postmaster General Law- rence F. O'Brien said Demo- crats must spend a lot of time explaining the administration's stand on the Vietnam war to a public he believes duesn't fully understand it. In an interview, O'Brien Indi- cated strongly that Democratic strategy next year will be to blame Republicans in Congress for blocking administration measures designed to solve the ills of riot-torn big cities. He said also that state and lo- cal party organizations, which have shown signs of disintegra- tion, had better rebuild. O'Brien conceded that the war, this summer's riots and President Johnson's request for a 10 per cent surcharge on per- sonal and corporate income tax- es are "areas of potential politi- cal difficulty" for the Demo- crats. "Anyone who knows me says I'm a O'Brien said, leaning back in his swivel chair, arms outspread, cigarette smoke swirling upward into the vistness of his dark-paneled of- fice. "Yet, in the middle of a hot summer with difficulties do- mestically and at the water's edge, I am optimistic about he said. Viet Candidates Ask Security SAIGON
