Fleming, 38, were hospitaSzed test Thursday after a dynamite explosion ripped through an alley door of their headquarters office locat- ed in the black community. "This idea of calling police pigs and an the rest must be pretty tough on Nixon told the policemen before leaving for Tennessee on a six- state political tour. The President told Robinson and Ftemingshe appreciated the fact they were working in a federal program. The police community relations effort is supported by the Model Cities program. "It's a great Robinson told the President. "It wasnt until we got hurt that we realized how good a job we were doing." The officers told Nixon morale on the Kansas City force is fine. "It's the best police force in the United they said. "How about the Nixon asked. "Are you getting good "I believe Fleming said. The President told the patrolmen the tendency "to downgrade the police, show no respect for them, call them pigs, can only lead to more violence." Mansion Set Afire 5 Slain In California SOQUEL, Calif. persons shot to death and thrown in a swimming pool at a blazing hilltop mansion ap- parently were tied op with silk scarves without a straggle and executed from behind, police said Tuesday. Santa Cruz County Sheriff Douglas James cafled some of the wouds on the bodies of Dr. Victor M. Ohta, his wife, two sons and a secretary "execu- tion-type." He said there was no sign of a straggle. The bodies, their blood tinting the waters of the pool and spattered on its tiles, were found Monday Tjy firemen fighting the blaze at the wealthy eye doctor's wood and stone home atop a steep ridge overlooking the Pacific. Law officers searched for Ohta's green Oldsmobfle station wagon, in which the killers apparently escaped. The bodies of Ohta, 47, a Japanese- American opthamologist: his wife Virginia, 41; and his sons, Derrick, 12 and Taggart, 11, were found at the bottom of the pool about p.m. Monday night. Floating face down on the surface was the body of the secretary, Dorothy Cadwalla- der, 38. James said the silk scarves tne mod-dressed doctor some- times wore instead of ties were used to bind the victims' hands IE front of them. Two scarves apparently came off later in the water but were found in the pool. He said Ohta was shot twice in the center of the back, the others in the back of the neck. The killers stacked kindling wood at several points through- out the house set it afire, and apparently escaped in one of the doctor's three cars, a green Oldsmobile station wagon. His red Rolls Royce and gold and black Lincoln Continental blocked the entrances to the estate when firemen arrived- Mideast Peace Prospects Dim By FRANK JAWOROWSO TR Staff Reporter Prospects for any near set- tlement in the Arab-Israeli conflict are very dim, Robert Adams, assistant to the director of BatteQe Memorial Institute in Columbus, told Rotary dub members at their weekly luncheon at the YWCA Tuesday. Adams, who spent nme years in the Middle East, said the situation is in the hands of the Russians and they are just as worried as we are, "The Russians were able to control Nasser to a certain extent, but whether or not they wiU be able to control the new regime is Adams said. Adams believes the crux of toe Arab-Israeli conflict is that the Israelis feel the Arabs are out to destroy Israel and the Arabs fear the Israelis want to continue expanding their bor- ders. "I don't think the Arabs want to slaughter the Israelis, but rather just destroy Israel as a religious he added. Adams said Nasser was the only Arab leader with the political position and backing of the masses, who could have approached a settlement in the Middle East crisis. "The death of Nasser has created a completely new ballgame in the Middle he said. He added that Nasser's death will make future negotiation difficult. He is skeptical whether or not Anwar Sadat, the newly elected Egyptian leader, can do as well as Nasser hi obtaining peace in the Middle East. 'There is already much in- fighting within the Egyptian he said. Adams feels there can be no fruitful negotiations until it is realized that Palestinians must have a homeland and religious claims to Jerusalem are settled. "Historically Jerusalem has been holy to the Christians, Jews and the Arabs, and the Christians have conceded the area, but the Jews and Arabs have he said. The Fedaene, the cover organization for the Palestinian guerriDas, have played an increasing role in the conflict, and wfll have to be -a part of any settlement if they are to be successful, Adams said.

"The students are afraid to do anything for the very rea- son they might harm the case of those said Mor- gan. The campus was calm Tues- day but the mood was mainly of shock. "No matter what we think, these (the findings) are the views of Portage County and of the silent majority in Ameri- ca." said Tom Kurtz, 22, a sen- ior. -I think the mood of the campus is that people are prej- udiced against the said Janet Biggs of Shreve, Ohio, a junior. "The jury said what the people wanted to hear.'7 The special grand jury did sot indict any guardsmen and said they feed in self defense. They also condemned the Kent State administration for its "pennissix'e" attitude.

Negotiations resumed Tues- day afternoon, but there was no indication what disputes, other than wages, remained unre- solved. After the Monday night session, federal mediator Fran- cis A.
