Vietnam Force Muskingum County officials, townships trustees, volunteer fire department officers and village representatives met last night at the Court- house to discuss the critical emergency am- bulance service gap in areas outside the c i t y. Prosecutor Richard E. Bridwell, standing, ex- plains the legal aspects of the problem. Area Ambulance Service Discussed By 50 Officials About 50 county and township officials, along with members from volunteer fire de- partments, met last night at the Courthouse to discuss the emerg- ency ambulance service crisis in rural Muskingum County. The meeting was called by County Commissioners to ex- plore "ways that the gap in emergency service might be bridged, particularly in the heavily densely populated areas on the" fringe of Zanesville and along such heavily traveled highway's such as Interstate 70. The crisis dates back to July 1 when all Zanesville funeral homes discontinued such service because of the new federal wage and hour laws. The rural funeral homes are continuing to provide emer- gency service within the limits of their manpower and equip- ment. It was apparent last night that no overnight solution to the problem is likely because of several obstacles. Another meeting was called for next Tuesday night. It will be only for county com- missioners and township and village officials throughout the county. Commissioner President Hutson J. Barnes presided at last night's meeting. PROSECUTOR Richard E. Bridwell outlined the legalities involved. He told the group that the county could not legally enter into contract with other agencies of private firms to provide such service. He said that the recent law passed by the Ohio Legislature authorizes townships to enter into such contracts with either municipal or private emergency squads. This law becomes ef- fective Sept. 20. Bridwell said there are three possible ways that emergency service can be provided: 1. Through the volunteer fire departments in villages and-or townships. There was a general con- sensus last night that this would be difficult if not impossible because of the manpower prob- lems in such departments. 2. The organization of emer- gency squads as part of the sheriff's department operations. Sheriff Fred B. Uffner said such a plan would require an Nationals Win 2-1 In Uth ANAHEIM. CaW.

Cuban Pirates Quell Plan To Hijack Ship MIAMI BEACH (UPI) -Six Cuban pirates, believed bent on a mission against Communist Cuba, hijacked a 350-foot ship within sight of Miami Beach Tuesday but abandoned the vessel "and fled in a lifeboat when their plan went awry. While a stunned bartender looked on, the six came storming ashore armed with rifles and sidearms, promptly taxicab and disappeared into the pre-dawn darkness of this tourist mecca, BOW the home of 150.000 Cuban refugees. Since the hijacking occurred at sea it became a matter for federal, rather than local, authorities, but FBI agents would not say whether they had any firm leads in the case. "We have collected some very interesting an FBI spokesman said. He would not elaborate. The cab in which the six escaped was described as a dark-colored vehicle, a descrip- tion that would fit almost any taxi on the beach. No taxis or cab drivers were reported missing Tuesday, lead- ing to speculation the cab was part of a prearranged escape plan. Officers aboard the hijacked ship, the SS Freight Transpor- ter, said the pirates came swarming out of a hold about a half hour after the ship left port, bound for Guatemala with cargo of general goods and seven passengers five of them girls of college age. "The captain and most of ihe ship's officers were surprised in the wheelhouse and were ordered at gunpoint to stand aside." said Nat Hamrick, one of ihe passengers. "The raiders ordered all lights on the ship out and awaited a rendezvous (with another "We are going to wait here Ramon Carpio, skipper of the Transporter, quoted the pirates as saying. "They made me drop an anchor. I think they were waiting for additional men. "This looked like a ma.ior effort of some said "Everybody on my ship behaved the captain said. "N7obody tried to be a hero and nobody got hurt." Most of the crewmen aboard the SS Freight Transporter were Cubans and they said they gathered from the conversation of the pirates that they were anti-Castroites bent on a mission against the Communist island of Premier Fidel Castro. When the rendezvous ship failed to put in an appearance, Hamrick said, the pirates "grew nervous and decided to take one of the ship's lifeboats." Before departing, the six smashed the ship's radio to prevent officers from sounding an alarm, but the radioman managed to repair the set sufficiently to get off one brief morse code message. Egyptian Jet Shot By Israel JERUSALEM (UPI) -Israeli antiaircraft guns shot down a Soviet-built Egyptian supersonic jet fighter and put another to flight Tuesday in a major new cease-fire incident along the Suez Canal, an Israeli military spokesman announced. The new Egyptian-Israeli clash was disclosed after Israel agreed to the stationing of U.N. truce observers along the Suez Canal but rejected a U.N. General Assembly demand that it withdraw from Old Jerusa- lem. Informed sources in Jerusa- lem said Israel is expected to hedge its truce observer agree- ment with conditions that might still kill the project. An Israeli army spokesman said a Russian-built Sukhoi-7 fighter was downed and a second driven off Tuesday afternoon when the two Egyp- tian air force jets swooped low over Israeli troops in the Sinai Desert east of El Qantara. The Egyptian plane was seen to fall into salt marshes that border the Suez Canal in that area, but the pilot was not seen parachuting, the Israeli an- nouncement added. Only last Saturday an Egyp- tian MIG21 was shot down in the same area. Another Egyp- tian MIG was claimed shot down by the Israelis a week earlier over the Suez Canal zone. News photographers in the area reported they clearly saw the Egyptian jet crash in the marshes on the Israeli-held side of the canal. Tuesday's incident occurred only a few miles from Port Said where a number of Soviet warships, including missile cruisers, currently are visiting. Royal ballet stars Rndolf Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn (both sJiown in a file photo) were among 17 persons arrested by San Francisco police at a drug party in the Haight Ashbury hippie district. The couple was charged with visiting a place where narcotics were used and disturbing the peace.

The decision cancelled a municipal court arraignment previously scheduled for Wed- nesday for the stars and their 16 companions on charges of being in a place where marijuana was used or kept and of disturbing the peace. "We feel there is insufficient evidence to charge any particu- lar individual with a 7iii.sdemea- nor or a felony." said Frederick J. Whisman. an assistant in the district attorney's office. His announcement came shortly after an attorney for the British consul general reported the rase "is closed." Whisman had conferred by telephone with the attorney. Hnrlan Richtor. bu! had not talked to the ballet stars. A marijuana cigarettes were found at the party but Whisman said "the evidence does not indicate who had possession of the contraband. Whisman told newsmen the decision against pressing formal charges "has nothing 1o do the identity of any of the persons arrested." For the stars of Britain's royal ballel the decision came after an early morning excur- sion into hippieland. Dame Margot. wearing a full- length mink coat, tried to flee from officers who raided the party but was discovered hiding on a rooftop. Rudi also was found, prone, on another roof- lop. Then, they were taken in a paddy wagon to a police station and transferred to cily jail where they were fingerprinted and photographed. Roth spent some time behind bars befort bail was posted. 140 Communists Die In Bitter Fighting SAIGON (UPI) A force of 200 South Vietnamese troops and four American military advisers Tuesday smashed a human wave assault by guerrillas whose ranks included women firing submachineguns from the hip. The Viet Cong struck back early Wednesday, pounding the nearby provincial capital of An Loc with 30 mortar shells in a barrage that wounded at least six Vietnamese civilians and damaged some homes. The fighting early Tuesday raged for three hours five miles from An Loc at a South Vietnamese base camp 60 miles north of Saigon along the Cambodian border. The camp defenders, although heavily outnumbered, killed 140 guerrillas in hand-to-hand com- bat supported by American artillery and air strikes. A spokesman for the U.S. military command said the attackers were trying to demon- strate to Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara that South Vietnamese troops were afraid to fight. The battle disproved that theory. In other combat Tuesday, big guns of the U.S. 9th Infantry Division opened up on Viet Cong concentrations in the Mekong River Delta 30 miles south of Saigon, and field commanders reported 50 guerrillas killed. Nearby, elements of the 9th Division fought a series of running battles with Viet Cong forces in the delta 17 miles south of Saigon. The U.S. command said 20 guerrillas were killed in fighting that cost the life of one American and wounded 24 others. In the air war. U.S. Navy pilots swept deep into North Vietnam Tuesday and raided oil storage targets in the southern panhandle and antiaircraft sites near the port of Haiphong. The U.S. command made no men! ion of aircraft losses in the Tuesday raids. Radio 'Hanoi claimed Tuesday that North Vietnamese gunners have shot down four American planes and two helicopters this week. It said one plane was shot down Tuesday over Hai Duong province. Elsewhere. North Vietnamese troops sneaking into the Central Highlands from Sanctuaries in Cambodia and Laos ambushed and severely mauled an Ameri- can paratroop unit. It was the same jungle area where 80 paratroopers from the same unit were killed in an ambush one month ago. An American headquarters spokesman said 26 men from the 173rd Airborne Brigade were killed and 49 wounded before the Communists broke off the attack leaving six bodies on the battlefield. It was 60 miles north of Saigon, just a few miles inside the Cambodian border, where two Viet Cong battalions tried to overrun a camp where government troops and Ameri- can advisers guarded revolu- tionary development workers. 'The Viet Cong were trying to show Secretary McNamara that the ARVN (South Vietnamese Army) could not hold its own." said Maj. Gen. John H. Hay. commander of the U.S. Army's 1st Infantry Division. "But they proved they were an effective fighting force by littering the battlefield with Viet Cong bodies." Artillery batteries under Hya's command helped drive back the Viet Cong attack. McNamara Promises Needed War Troops SAIGON (UPI) Kern-tary Robert S. McNanwa finished a five-day Vietnam visit Tuesday and flew back to in tell President Johnson how much more men. money and material must be pumped into 'be war.
