(AP Wirepholo) SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (AD A young aulo mechanic accused of slaying five persons in a hill- lop manson was arrested today about a half mile from the scene of the slaying, sheriff's deputies said. A spokesman said John Linley Frazier, 21, who was charged with five counts of murder Thursday, was seized in a mountain cabin. Officers said they had staked nut the cabin, where Frazier had lived since two days before Monday's shooting deaths. The 6-by-6 foot-shanty is on the same hilltop as the mansion. separated by a half a mile and a deep canyon. Dist. Atty. Peter Chang Jr. said a friend of Frazier told au- thorities that the young man once remarked that people who lived like the victims "were ma- terialistic and "should be snuffed.1' Chang said three long-haired persons who live in a wooded area came to investigators at 3 a.m. Thursday after reading a note left at ihe .Maying scene and released to news media by the sheriff Wednesday. Chang said Ihe three told in- vestigators the threatened death for those who "misuse the natural environ- ment" and referred to larot cards to them as though it might have been written by Frazier. The hippie community was re- vulsed by Ihe massacre, Chang said. Hitchhikers Sought Oh to Questioning MIDLAND, Tex. (AP) Stale police said they were hunting two long-haired and bearded hitchhikers today for questioning about five murders at Santa Cruz, Calif. Stale Patrolman Ralph Ward said the search stemmed from Ihe facts that Ihe two "hippie types" displayed nervousness o'vcr broadcast descriptions of a man charged in the slayings of Dr. Victor M. Ohla and four others in California. Officers also are interested, he said, because one of the pair was reported to bear fresh burns, apparently serious, on both his arms. The Ohta man- sion and a car laken from the victims were lefi burninc. Ward related these details: The pair being sought for questioning came from the west Stout Elbow Bender 'Drunk as Charged' and Ihumbed rides at El Paso with an castbound motorist, stating they were bound for San Anlonio. Their agitation over the radio descriptions, however, caused them lo alight from the car at a highway interseclion near Pecos, 105 miles west of here. Ward stopped the car near Midland because its driver dis- played uneasiness after passing him. He said Ihe driver, not immediately identified, told of stealing the car somewhere in Indiana. Two other hitchhikers still in the vehicle told questioners about the bushy-haired pair, de- scribed as so heavily bearded their age was indelerminale. "We don't know who these hippie types Ward said. "We're just trying to find them and talk lo them. Whether they have any connection with the California case is strictly specu- lation." Tippling Middles Under Restriction ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) The man brigade of Midshipmen at Ihe U.S. Naval Academy has had its coming weekend liberty cut in half because a handful of freshmen plebcs couldn't handle their beer. Unofficial reports from high academy sources say Ihe weekend restriction, which will last until after dinner Saturday, Oct. 24, was imposed because some plebes were observed in Iheir cups following post game parties in Washington and Annapolis after Ihe Navy-Air Force football game last Saturday. The academy's official position, however, was contained in this statement issued Thursday by Capt. Robert P. Coogan, commandant of midshipmen: "For disciplinary reasons, I have Imposed certain reductions in midshipmen privileges for the coming weekend. "Thi is an internal matter related solely to the discipline and training of the brigade and I do not wish to comment on it publicly." The restriction of the entire brigade is reportedly an academy first, although officials insist that they don't really know "because we don't keep records.'1 Making of a Radical t'nr Anppla Darin, the journey tn llif FBI's Mnit Wanted List IIP- pnn in Rirminphnm, Aln.

JOHNSON Associated Press Writer MOSCOW (AP) The U.S. Embassy pressed the Soviet government today to let it inter- view two U.S. generals whose plane strayed across the Soviet- Turkish border in bad weather Wednesday and landed 12 miles inside Soviet Armenia. Maj. Gen. Edward C. D. Scherrer, commander of the joint U.S. military mission to Turkey, and Brig. Gen. Claude M. McQuarrie Jr., head of the mission's Army section, were being held incommunicado somewhere inside the Soviet Un- ion. A U.S. Embassy official said it was "quite unlikely" that they would be released snon. Also in custody were the pilot, U.S. Army Maj. James P. Rus- sell, 42, o'f Piney Woods, Miss., and a Turkish escort officer identified as Col. Dcncli. The Soviet Foreign Ministry said all four were in good health and that Ihe incident was being investigated. It did not say whether the men were consid- ered under arrest or merely in custody pending the investiga- tion, but it said the case was being treated as a penetration into Soviet territory by a U.S. military plane. Tass, the Soviet news agency, said the plane had "violated So- viet air space." U.S. Embassy officials re- quested permission to meet with Ihe captives in accordance with the U.S.-Soviet consular agree- ment, which gives U.S. officials Ihe right of access to American citizens held in the Soviet Union wilhin three days ot their dctcn- lion. The plane landed at Ihe Arme- nian town of Leninakan, and the embassy's consular officer, Pe- ter B. Swiers, said he was ready to fly there or lo any other des- ignated place. Flying a six-passenger Semi- nole U8 plane, Maj. Russell ap- parently lost his way in bad weather over the mountains of eastern Turkey and crossed the heavily fortified Turkish-Soviet border. The two generals were inspecting Turkish military units equipped with American weapons, and Iheir destination was Kars, 40 miles from the So- viet frontier. Officers in Ankara said they assumed all four men were in uniform since they were making an inspection tour and w-ere to have been met by Turkish mili- tary officers at Kars._________ Market Lower NEW YORK (API The stock market, which drifted downward all day Thursday, opened slightly lower tnday. It was the first lime in years an American plane had strayed across the Turkish- Soviet border. American offi- cials would not comment on speculation that Ihe Soviets might try to exchange the cap- lured officers for Ihe Lithuanian father and son who hijacked a Soviet airliner last Thursday and diverted it to Turkey. The two killed a stewardess and wounded two other crew mem- bers, but so far Ihe Turkish gov- ernment has not acceded lo Ihe Soviet government's demand that Ihev be returned. The last American flier to stray into the Soviet Union was held a week, in July 1963, before cansular officials arranged his release. He was Lt. Col. George Patterson of Chamblee, da., who was flying a small plane with a West German companion in an air rally from Romania to Turkey. They crossed Ihe bor- der near Batumi, Georgia, on July 4, 1969, and were released on July 11.

The storm struck about a.m. as thunderstorms covered a vast area around Bracken- ridge and much of Texas under- went rains and high winds. The trailer homes were new and were at the Vintage Home Plant in Breckcnridgc. One wit- ness said the homes were twist- ed and demolished like "little playthings."
