(Details on Page 2-A) 107TH PAGES ZANESVILLE, OHIO, 43701 SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1970 TEN CENTS Two Ohio Police Oificers Also Kidnaped Fugitive Releases LISBON, Ohio (UPI) A for- mer convict who kidnaped and then released two police officers Friday, was reported by Carroll County Sheriff Dean R. Yeager to have released unharmed at Covington, Va., the two women and a man he later seized. Police had set a huge drag- net throughout Northeastern Ohio to try to get the fugitive, believed to have fled in the car of the three hostages. Yeager said a brother and sister had telephoned their mother to say they had been freed by the fugitive, who then headed on south. The sheriff said the kidnaper still was sought. The sheriff said Joseph Plott, 24, his sister Nerissa, 17, and Connie Elliott, 30, all of Miner- va, had been freed by James Edward Kelley, 42, formerly of Akron and Cleveland. Kelley was described by his parole of- ficer as a genius with a 138 IQ. City police at Covington told the Ohio Highway Patrol the three had-been taken to head- quarters and were safe. Virgin- ia city police said the fugitive had released them and driven south, possibly to Florida. Kelley first kidnaped Patrol- man Ronald Baracz of Brooklyn Heights, a Cleveland suburb, Thursday when Baracz attempt- ed to quiz him about a car in the area. Kelley kidnaped Ohio High- way Patrolman Richard Klaes early Friday when Klaes ait- tempted to check his oar at a restaurant here. Kelley forced Klaes to return to his cruiser, drove to a church where he had handcuff- ed Baracz to a sink in the men's room. He then handcuff- ed Klaes to the sink and left. Baracz said he was cruising in an area of Brooklyn Heights when he saw a parked car and a man walking around it. "I pulled up behind him and asked what the problem Baracz said. "He said he was They Keep Her Busy A lot puppies for a little girl to keep her eye on. Elizabeth (Betsy) Gardner of Charleston, W. Va., ended up inside the ,10 puppies' basket and the dogs all from one litter romped outside. Keeping up with the 10 could even keep an energetic 4-year-old like Betsy busy. Several Die In Cambodia Fire PHNOM PENH military munitions storage base on the outskirts of this Cambodian capital burst into flames and exploded Friday night, killing several persons and wounding scores of others. One military hospital in Phnom Penh said it had received 40 wounded three hours after the fire and explosion from unknown causes. Three other hospitals in Phnom Penh also were treating the wounded. Military officers said the fire started in a small arms munitions storage shed and then spread to other buildings housing mortar shells and heavy machine gun ammuni- tion. One wounded officer said 82 millimeter and 60 millimeter mortar shells had exploded in the fire. Hundreds of refugees stream- ing down the highway from the area of the camp and its storage base said they had been trapped for up to an hour, trying to avoid exploding ammunition. Five hours after the initial explosion, the fire was reported still spreading. American B52 stratofortres- ses bombed the Ho Chi Minh trail in Eastern Laos for the 44th consecutive day Friday, prolonging the heaviest air assault of the Indochina War to cut the flow of Communist supplies to South Vietnam and Cambodia. Military sources said the planes dropped 250 tons of bombs along the battered trail Friday, the average amount of the daily drop since the raids began. Three of the B52s flying from bases in Thailand were diverted from Laos Friday and raided suspected Communist positions east of the border near the former U.S. Marine base at Khe Sanh, the third reported raid by B52s in South Vietnam in the past six weeks. Other U. S. and South Viet- namese planes struck Friday at targets around Pleiku in the Central Highlands, military spokesmen said. The fighter- bombers hit in an area where a government regional force unit killed 34 Communists in ground fighting Thursday night and early Friday. The U.S. Military command said an Army OH6 observation helicopter was shot down Thursday near the eastern edge of the A Shau Valley, 375 miles northeast of Saigon, killing the two crewmen aboard. It was the third helicopter lost in two days in South Vietnam, raising the unofficial total of helicop- ters lost in Indochina to The command said an investi- gation is underway of the slaying of two government regional force militiamen. New Lex Families Affected By Gas Break NEW LEXINGTON Some 400 westside families here were without gas service late last night as Columbia Gas Com- pany crews worked to repair a three inch gas line broken in a fiery one car crash. Billy A. Riley, 16, was traveling north on State street when Ws auto skidded into a concrete bridge abutment, rupturing the nearby gas line and snapping an electric pole. New Lexington Patrolman Harry RatM said a spark apparently ignited the natural gas escaping from the broken line. Both the car and the utility pole were destroyed in the blaze. Riley and a passenger, Phil Wollenburg of New Lexington were treated and released from Herendeen Clinic. Both sustained minor cuts and bruises. Gas, power and telephone repair crews were on the scene last night trying to restore normal conditions in the area. Neither the power nor telephone service was cut off, but both companies were ma-king repairs to equipment. Gas company officials said repairs to the line would be relatively easy. t 4 Inside Today's Times Recorder Ornaments Of Life Nine young men, from the Eastern Seaboard to Hawaii, have made 1970 a "very good year" for veteran columnist Bruce Biossat.

Baracz said he was checking the license plates when he spot- ted another set on the floor of the car and said he wanted to check them, also. "I went over to my car, wrote his license registration number on the pad in my car and reached for my radio mike when I heard him beside me say 'please don't do said Baracz. "I looked up into the barrel of a .45 pointed at my head." Baracz said he had scribbled the number of the license plates on the floor of the car on a pad that he left in his cruiser. Po- lice were able to trace the car to Kelley through these nota- tions. Baracz said they drove over much of northeastern Ohio and part of Pennsylvania before ar- riving in Lisbon. Because the officer was taken across the state line, the FBI office at Cleveland entered the case. Agents obtained a warrant for Kelley from U.S. Commis- sioner Clifford E. Bruce in Cleveland on grounds the fed- eral kidnap law had been vio- lated. After Kelley brought Klaes to the church and chained him alongside Baracz, he left in the OSP cruiser. He abandoned the cruiser about 20 miles southwest of here, then came back to it then abandoned it for good before taking the hostages in Minerva. Klaes and Baracz managed to get free when the patrolman pulled a key out of his pockets that fit the handcuffs. Kelley has served time for shooting at two Akron police of- ficers in 1964 wounding a plant guard during a car theft in 1949. He joined the Navy in 1946, and was dishonorably dis- charged in 1948. In March 1965 he was sentenced to five to 30 years, for night burglary and shooting to wound in Summit County. Welfare WASHINGTON (UPI) -The Senate Finance Committee voted Friday to kill President Nixon's welfare reform bill, the keystone of his domestic legislative program. Conserva- tives charged it went too far, and liberals complained it didn't go far enough. The committee voted 10-6 to kill the billion bill which Nixon has called the most important social legislation since the New Deal. The vote came as a severe setback to the prospects of enactment of the costly, com- Red China Loses Bid For U.N. UNITED NATIONS Communist China's bid for membership in the United Nations received majority sup- port for the first time Friday in the General Assembly but fell 16 votes short of the total needed for acceptance. The vote was 51-49 in favor of admitting the Peking regime to China's seat and ousting the Chinese Nationalists, who have represented China since the founding of the U.N. in 1945. The issue required a two- thirds majority of the nations voting, meaning that 67 nations would have had to vote in favor of Peking in order for Communist Chin-a to win membership this year. There were 25 abstentions. Approval of a U.S.-sponsored resolution declaring the China representation issue an "impor- tant question" requiring a two- thirds vote to make a change saved the seat for Nationalist China this year. The resolution was accepted by a 66-52 vote with seven abstentions. The fact that Communist China got more votes than did Nationalist China for the first time on the seating issue 'led some diplomats to speculate that it was only a matter of time before the Peking regime is seated. plex and controversial proposal in the closing weeks of a Congress busy with other matters. But Secretary EUiot L. Richardson of Health, Educa- tion and Welfare predicted that the White House would muster "about 60" votes on the Senate floor to reverse the com- mittee's rejection. "It is simply too important to the country to allow this legislation to Richardson told a Capitol Hill news conference. He said "anything" would be better than the nation's current "morally and fiscally bank- rupt" welfare system which helps support 10 million people and which has been criticized by taxpayers, welfare clients and administrators for years. In place of the administration proposal, the committee voted 13-3 for a test run of the called "the Family Assistance of up to five alternatives, including federal wage supplements for those who work at low-paying jobs. Richardson said "We would rather have no bill at all" than the committee's dry-run propos- al, which he said would take years to administer and eval- uate and would delay a thorough overhaul of welfare until 1974. The chief innovation is Nix- on's biU, outlined by the President to the nation in a radio television address 16 months ago, was its promise of Federal aid to the "working those who work but still cannot earn enough to lift themselves out of poverty.' The bill promised a federal payment of a year plus in food stamps to every eated poor family of four in the nation if the head of the household would take a job or sign up for job training. One of every 12 Americans would be affected. The measure sailed through the House with unexpected ease last April, but it hit a waU of conservative resistance in the Senate committee. As the administration modified its proposal again and again to meet the objections of conser- vatives, it lost liberal support. Sen. Fred Harris, D-Okla., a key supporter, defected Friday. He told reporters he could no longer support the bill because the administration would not guarantee aid for families which included a father. Most welfare families are headed by women, but unemployed fathers are now eligible for payments, too. us-Tech School r A plan to consolidate Ohio's present branch campuses and technical institutes, including Ohio University-Zanesville and the Muskingum Area Technical Institute, was proposed by the state Board of Regents Friday. Under the tentative new master plan, the reorganization would result in 25 state com- munity and technical colleges, each a two-year institution with its own board of trustees. The proposed college for Southeastern Ohio would serve Muskingum, Guernsey, Noble, Morgan and Washington counties and would have a projected enrollment of students by 19SO.

Settlement of local disputes at several key points was the only thing left blocking a restart of GM production after a strike that cut the nation's auto output sharply and hurt the national economy. Once key local agreements are completed, a GM spokes- man said, resumption of production will vary at assem- bly plants across the country as parts are available. But output is expected to be well under way at nearly all points in December. The tally of the exact vote for ratification was not immediate- ly available. The UAW's negotiating learn, led by UAW President Leonard Woodcock, agreed to the tentative contract with GM's negotiators and tlic- UAW's GM council voted 3-1 recently to recommend approval by the rank-and-file. Twelve of GM's 24 assembly plants have reached local agreements and a GM spokes- man said both sides were working hard right now to solve disputes at the other assembly plants and supplier plants.
