General Assembly session. The officials, barring attribution to them by name, predicted to newsmen Friday that much of the U.N. session would focus on the South African and Rho-desian issues. But the officials expressed concern over the possibility that angered African delegates would indulge in assembly moves which would sound far-reaching, but in effect would be meaningless or unenforceable. Black African governments have been incensed by the recent world court decision against a bid to stop South Africa from applying its segregationist policy in its mandated territory of Southwest Africa. They also have complained about Britain's failure to end the rule of whites in Rhodesia. What specific remedies the United States would support staunch supporter of Peking-announced that it is taking an independent course.

MEYER WASHINGTON (AP) - The major significance of North Korea's declaration of ideological independence from both Peking and Moscow may be that it comes at a time when similar unrest has been developing tor many months in other Communist nations. Administration experts here believe, however, tha'. the differences among Communist nations does not necessarily mean any easing of the Communist fight against the United States and other non-Communist nations. The intra-party differences, it -Resentment at failure of old-line Communist ideology in such areas as agricultural production. -Man's desire for his own property, security and well-being for himself and better opportunities for his family. -The increasing penetration of the Iron Curtain, wherever it exists, by tourists. -And the incessant shortages and sacrifices in Communist nations. What the experts call a poly-centric trend in communism has been developing over many months, they explain. This is a move toward creation of many centers of doctrine, rather than accepting blindly the Communist ideology of any one country. The North Korean declaration Friday put it this way: "One country of the party cannot serve as the center of the world revolution or the leading parly." Curiously, this declaration coincides with repeated statements of Cuba's Fidel Castro on the same line.

S. Air Force jets in o brief dogfight, the U. S. military command reported. None of the planes was downed, a U. S. spokesman said, but the U. S. pilots reported the two attacking MIG17s were damaged.

(AP) - Inmates rioted outside a dispensary at the Massachusetts State Prison in a violent attempt to steal drugs Friday night, injuring nine guards.

State Police Cpl. James Dunne, who led the squad equipped with 12 gauge shotguns, gas masks and crash helmets, said about 18 of the inmates were reeling "on cloud nine" when he arrived. Medications, which prison officials said are dispensed once daily in packets, are kept in a locked room and handed out through a window. Dunne said about 70 inmates were lined up for their assigned medication when one unidentified prisoner insisted upon having a second packet, overturned a table at the head of the line, and threatened a guard outside the room with half of a barber's shear. When a guard inside the room attempted to aid the guard outside, the prisoners rushed inside Dunne said. The guards told police the inmates began screaming, shouting "yahoo," and seizing pills. "They stuffed down as many as they could at one time," one guard told state police. Dunne said those prisoners in the line who did not attempt to steal the drugs stood back and watched or went baclc to their cells. The medication room is in the prison's maximum security section. One of the guards, Thomas Perry, 45, Raynham, was stabbed in the back and knocked unconscious in the first dash for pills. John J.

Richard Plechner, of Metueh-en, N.J., and the Rat Finks have drawn the strongest ire of national GOP elders including Sen. Clifford Case of New Jersey and Sen. Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania, former national chairman. Both Case and Scott have demanded that Plechner he fired from the Young Republicans' National Executive Committee. Plechner and others have already been removed from the London Police Hunt Killers Of Three Cops By RAYMOND PALMER LONDON (AP) - Arms and tear gas were issued to some of London's 18,000 police today as they hunted for the men who gunned down three unarmed policemen Friday on a West End street. Only in exceptional cases are arms issued to British police. Police were warned the killers probably would not hesitate to kill again. Investigators were warned not to work alone. The victims, gunned down opposite a park where several children were playing, were riding in an unmarked car, used in patrol and undercover work. A 10-year-old boy who witnessed the shooting told Scotland Yard officials a fat man with a black beard shot at one of the victims, chased him, knocked him to the ground and shot him. "Then the man with the black beard got into the police car and drove over the man in the road. I ran away because I was frightened. As I ran I heard several more shots," the boy said. The policemen had stopped their car near Wormwood Scrubbs Prison to question three or four men in a parked auto. Why they wanted to question the men may never be known. "Only three men know the full story - and they are dead. But they must have had a reason," a Scotland Yard spokesman said. He gave this account: As Detective Sgt. Christopher Tippett Head, 30, walked toward the parked car he was shot through the head and fell to the roadway. Detective Constable David Wombwcll, 25, father of two, was shot through the heart as he went to Head's aid. Constable Geoffrey Fox, 41, driver of the car and father of three, was shot as he drove the car at one of the gunmen. Fox's Please Turn to Page 10, Col. 6 slightly. The MIGs broke off the encounter, about 60 miles northwest of Hanoi, the U.S. command said. It was the first time since July 24 that U.S. planes and Communist aircraft had tangled. The flight was one of a number that attacked oil storage facilities and supply lines in the north. In the ground war, little contact with the enemy was reported. Premier Nguyen Can Ky, returning home from a three-day state visit to the Philippines, told newsmen he thought the North Vietnamese would accept defeat within the next two or three years and "maybe even earlier." He also reiterated his statement that a partial withdrawal of U.S. forces in Viet Nam might be possible in two yearn. "We have made a lot of progress militarily, economically and politically in the last 14 months," he said. "If we can continue this progress I believe wc will be strong enough to defend ourselves." The air action in the north Friday included a strike by Air Force jets on a fuel storage area near Quang Khe. about 20 miles north of Dong Hoi. Pilots reported heavy black smoke and numerous fires. Navy pilots also reported three surface-to-air missiles were fired at them 30 miles northwest of Vinh. The U.S. spokesman said no American planes were hit. Navy fighter-bombers pounded fuel storage areas 13 miles northeast of Haiphong, the spokesman said, and pilots reported that one storage tank exploded and two or three others were ruptured. Large secondary fires were reported.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - According to his wife, Joseph Davis wasn't a violent man. But about noon Friday he burst into the lunch room of a factory and wounded four persons with a gun before police killed him. The 51-ycar-old Negro had been fired from his job earlier in the week at the Winchester-Western Division of the Olin-Mathieson Chemical Corp. Police said he was being sought for questioning in the meal-cleaver slaying of Rebecca Wilson when he went on the shooting rampage. Mrs. Wilson, 34, who worked with Davis at the factory, was married and the mother of four. Her body was found in a wooded lover's lane. Police said she and Davis had been seeing each other. Seriously injured in the shooting were Helen Koch, 51, a secretary. Jonathan Miller, a research technician, was treated and released for a bullet wound in the abdomen.

Government Mum On Air Settlement Effort By NEIL (ill.BRIDE AP Labor Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - A veil of secrecy dropped today over government efforts to win an airlines settlement that would save Congress the political pain of forcing the 35,400 striking mechanics back to work. It was learned that federal officials privately prodded negotiators Friday in the hopes of getting them back to the bargaining table, but there was no hint of progress. Unless negotiators for the five strikebound airlines and the AFL-CIO International Association of Machinists reach a vol- untary .settlement, reluctant House members will begin deliberating next week back-to-work legislation passed by the Senate and approved by the House Commerce Committee. The House committee voted the legislation 17 to 13 Friday, but the measure is not expected to get to the House floor until Thursday - barring special action by the Rules Committee. Committee Chairman Harley O. Staggers, D-W. Va., predicted a "chaotic situation" when the election-minded congressmen take up a bill under which Congress would order the strikers back to work for 30 days and give President Johnson power to keep them on the job for another 150 days. "It will have an awful time in lhe House," th� congressman said. It is expected that efforts will be made on the House floor to amend the bill to provide foi government seizure of the air lines, a move that failed in both House and Senate committees. Meanwhile, sources said ther� is little hope of realistic negotiations unless the airlines boosted at least slightly the contract offer that had been rejected by the strikers in an overwhelminj Please Turn to Page 10, Col. 1
