The earthfill dam is six miles east of the town on Marsh Creek. The town has a population of 700 persons. All are being evacu- ated. SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) Teeming floodwaters. the worst in years in the West, swept through northern California, Or- egon and Idaho Wednesday, leaving thousands homeless or stranded. In some areas resi- dents braced for worse to come. The gale whipped Christmas week deluges claimed at least 10 lives in the three states. A Coast Guard helicopter with three crewmen disappeared on a rescue mission. Two passeng- er trains were marooned by slides or high water. Governors Edmund G. Brown of California, Mark 0. Hatfield of Oregon and Robert E. Smy- lie of Idaho sent their state Na- tional Guards into the stricken areas with orders to assist evac- uations, build emergency safe- guards against further flooding and prevent looting. More than persons fled their homes in a score of com- munities since the rampaging floods and slides hit the West two days ago. The U.S. Weather Bureau pre- dicted lessening rains through Christmas eve in northern Cali- fornia but heavy intermittent downpours were still expected. Five-day forecasts for Oregon warned of heavy precipitation in western Oregon and above normal amounts east of the Cascades. In addition, melting snows in mountain areas sent waters cascading into the low- lands. With Oregon property d a m- age expected to run into the millions, Hatfield declared the entire state a disaster area. He warned in a special emergency broadcast that heavy damage could be expected in Salem, the state capital with a population of when the Willamette River crests 10 feet above flood level. The roaring Columbia River also continued to rise. Every major highway in the state was blocked and rail traf- fic to the east and south was at a standstill. Salem Memorial Hospital was evacuated after sandbags gave way to floodwa- ters. State officials called the floods one of Oregon's worst na- tural disasters and Hatfield feared worse to come. Many communities were under water in the southern part of the state, residents boiled water in several areas to avoid contami- nation, food supplies were dwindling in a few towns, hun- dreds of persons were isolated and thousands were driven from their homes. Between 600 and resi- dents of the suburban Keizer north of Salem were evacuated ahead of raging floodwaters of the Willamette River Wednes- day. .fftf Symbols Of Faith Draw Thousands To Holy Land By United Press International Flickering candles and the smell of incense from midnight Mass in the church of St. Cath- erine, Bethlehem.. .the glimmer of 32 oil lamps softly glowing on .a lifesize figure of the Christ-Child in the stone-walled grotto of the Nativity.

Accused Counterfeiter Recaptured; Identified As One Of FBI's 'Top 10' PAINESVILLE (UPI) A1-; 'red Oponowicz, 37, one of thej FBI's 10 most wanted men, ivas captured here Wednesday night following his second es- cape from law officers in two days. Oponowicz, dirty and blood stained from open wounds he suffered Tuesday, was cornered in a field near Lake County Memorial Hospital from which he escaped earlier Wednesday. The fugitive, who has operat- ed under at least a half dozen aliases since 1963, had given the name of Robert Bennett to officials who arrested him fol- lowing a gun battle Tuesday. Early Wednesday, he escaped from the hospital where he was being treated for gunshot wounds. Lake County Sheriff Edwin Cunningham was searching through mug shots and circu- lars from the Cleveland FBI of- fice when he came across a photo of Oponowicz and de- clared that was Bennett. The escaped man is believed armed with a .38 caliber re- volver and is considered dan- gerous. He overpowered a guard in his second-floor hospital room and eluded a small army of of- ficers. He obtained the revolver from Deputy Sheriff Harold as Williams, 29, who had been as- signed to the hospital room as a guard. Williams was kicked in the back when Oponowicz made his escape. Nora, helped him in his first escape. She was described as the brains of a counterfeiting operation and was held under bond. Oponowicz was wounded in the shoulder and leg Tuesday during an attempted escape from federal and county au- thorities who tried to arrest him at his home near here. He was caught shortly afterward and underwent surgery. A woman who posed as the fugitive's wife, identified only Secret Service agents and sheriff's deputies went to the couple's home Tuesday to make the raid. They found an offset printing press and camera equipment valued at Oponowicz escaped when the woman held up a baby to kiss him goodbye. He whipped a pis- tol from the baby's blanket and got the drop on two -deputies. lead the world's Christian re- joicing at Christendom's most sacred shrines. At Nazareth, giant Christmas trees were set up along the city's main thoroughfare, named Pope Paul VI Street to honor the pontiff's pilgrimage there last January. At midnight Christmas Eve, two great searchlights will blaze a cross into the sky over the city where Jesus grew to man hood. Authorities in the Jordanian section of Jerusalem made ar- rangements to receive 4.422 hristians who will cross through the Mandelbaum Gate from Israel to visit the holy places. The tolling midnight bells of Bethlehem and Jerusalem will echo around the world. A re- joicing will spread in another walled city: Berlin. There, Christmas charity this year flows only one the West across the Communist wall to the East. The Commu- nists opened the wall to permit West Berliners to visit their ealed-off relatives. Many hun- dreds of thousands made the :rosskig, carrying Christmas ;ifts. From the Vatican came a noving plea for peace. Pope 'aul VI, who visited the Holy and India during the year, appealed to the world powers to halt the arms race. His Christ- mas message, heard by mil- lions, urged them instead to turn their skills and wealth to solving the problems of hunger misery, sickness and ignorance 'Get On With The War' U.S. Ask Viet Leaders To End 'Personal Feuds WASHINGTON (UPI) Sec- retary of State Dean Rusk Wednesday appealed to South Vietnamese leaders to end 'personal rivalries" and get on with the war against the Com- munists. Rusk told a news conference that political bickering has be- come the "most immediate" problem in the U.S.-backed war effort. Political unity, he said, "would be worth many, many divisions" against the Viet Cong. He said halting Communist expansion in South Viet Nam is important to world peace in general because history has shown that persistent un- checked aggression 'can only lead to general war. Rusk's remarks were made following several days in which South Vietnamese military of- ficials purged the country's leg- islature and some including armed forces chief Gen. Nguyen Khanh embarked on what appeared to be an anti- American bent. Rusk gave U.S. Ambassador Maxwell D. Taylor full admin- istration support against criti- cism from Gen. Khanh. Taylor is the spokesman for the Unit- ed States there, he said, "and we shall back him in every possible way." TR To Observe Christmas Day The Times Recorder will not publish Christmas Day so employes may observe the holiday with their families and friends. Tiiis is a TR tradition of long standing. The Saturday edition of The Times Recorder will include extra news and features. Watch for it. The United States will not in- sist on any particular formula for political settlement, he said. "What is important is unity, he said, "the setting aside of personal rivalries or lesser is- sues in the interest of maintain- ing the strength and unity o. the country." The more than U.S military advisers in South Viet Nam and vast numbers of the South Vietnamese people have "put personal consideration! aside" and feuding South Viet namese leaders should too, he added. Rusk said latest reports in dicated the military supported the present civilian government He said some anti American statements may have been made in the "heat of the mo ment." In general, he said there is no widespread anti American feeling in South Viet Nam. Rusk Sees 'Extreme Danger' In Congo WASHINGTON (UPI) Sec- retary of State Dean Rusk said Wednesday the Congo now is an "extremely dangerous" situa- tion. The secretary made the com- ment in a news conference at which he took a broad look at the world "a mixed situa- tion, a changing situation." Specifically, he said that the Congo and South Viet Nam are "extremely dangerous issues." He expressed hope that the United Nations Security Coun- cil will develop a solution to the Congo problem, and he not- ed that the Organization of Af- rican Unity is working on the same thing. The United States, he added, is "very active dip- lomatically" in seeking peace and unity in the Congo. The answer to the Congo's problems does not lie in furnishing arms illegally to reb- el elements, he said, as the United States has accused the Soviet Union, Communist China and some African nations of doing. The secretary made these other points at his news confer-' ence: Germany "Looking around the world historically, I would say that one of the most urgent needs is to find a permanent, peaceful and satisfactory settle- ment for the German question." NATO The Atlantic a 11 i- ance is more prosperous and secure than ever but still faces the long-range problems of what form Europe will take in the future and how to settle the still-unresolved nuclear ques- tion. Latin America He saw "many reasons for encourage- ment" in Latin America dur- ing 1964, a year which indi- cated that "Castroism is not ac- cepted as an answer to the problems of this hemisphere." While il is "true that Cuba continues its policy of inter- the danger of this in- terference has been reduced by the reaction of Latin American nations to it. U.A.R. The United States did not understand why Unite rovide emergency food sup- plies that Egypt requested. He said if the United States does not like Egypt's terms for payment it "can go drink sea- water." Nasser also said Egypt has sent arms to the Congolese rebels "and we will continue to send arms." At the same time he accused the United States and Belgium of "aggression" in the Congo last month when Belgian para- troopers from U.S. Air Force transport planes rescued whites held hostage by the reb- els. Nasser spoke at a rally cele- brating the departure of British and French troops from the Suez Canal zone eight years ago. Soviet Deputy Premier Alex- ander N. Shelepin, who spoke before Nasser at the rally in Victory Square, said "the pol- icy of the Soviet government toward the U.A.R. was and still is friendly and unshakeable." Ohio Man Killed IRONTON (UPI) John Burcham, 72, Proctorvifle, was killed Wednesday when struck by a hit-skip driver while cross- ing a street in the village of Athalia, about 30 miles east of here.
