After services the other night at Southern Hills Church of Christ the bus which transports Abilene Christian students from and to the campus would not start. A couple of collegians went back into the church and found Kip Jordan, an ACC officer. "Say, they said. "We need a pusher." For an instant Kip was startled. "Inside the church, yet?

Davis Is wife a a Dyess Air Force Base captain. While the captain was away from home sometime back on a mission Involving B-52s, Mrs. Davis was beset with a mystery. Her house developed a strange noise. She heard It first rather late one night. It seemed lo come from the attic. She could not locate the cause. Slie became uneasy. She phoned the .police. A night or two later Mrs. Davis heard the noise again. Some animal, a squirrel, perhaps, must have gotten in the attic. Hie next day she called "animal control." Then, on advice from this agency, she telephoned an exterminator. The attic was checked out. No sign of any animal. The experts had all spoken. Investigation and logic, too, dictated that the sound meant nothing. Perhaps, imagination. Still late at night when the house was quiet, Mrs. Davis could hear it. Quiet as the house was the noise seemed very loud. It was becoming quite a thing. "You're just going to have to come home, Ronnie, and find out what this animal Mrs. Davis wrote her husband at one point. One night, before she retired, Mrs. Davis heard the noise again and decided that, since experts had failed and husband was away, she would solve the mystery herself. The creature had to be identified and exterminated for her peace of mind. She gathered together courage, resolution and determination and set out to trace the noise. She followed it from Die sitting room out into a hallway. She followed it past one room and another through the four- bedroom home. She followed it all Ihe way to the bedroom where her son, Mickey, age 5, was asleep. There she found her animal, a 34-pounder. Mickey was gritting his teeth. The mystery was solved, Mrs. Davis wrote her husband the next day. She told him the origin of the and I don't want you making any wise she added. The captain didn't. All he said, when he acknowledged her report was, "I certainly hope you didn't exterminate the animal." She hadn't, he found. All she did was take the animal to the dentist. __ NEWS INDEX AmuMintnrt 1SB Dr. Umb 71 SB F.rm SB M.rV.H TO, 11B OMtMrin 2A Oil 11A Sport. Sylvia PoiWr low 70s.

However, the fact that the bomb reached the embassy Inte- rior at all was a major security breakdown. An embassy spokesman said two Americans had been de- tailed earlier to make a thor- ough search of the building each clay to prevent just such an inci- dent. Also, despite recent terrorist attacks which have claimed 25 lives in Phnom Penh, the U.S. Embassy is guarded only by a Marine guard and two Cambod- ian soldiers.

Presidential press secretary Ronald L. Ziegler said Nixon was concerned about the inci- dent and the fact that the While House was not immediately in- formed when it occurred. From information received in a preliminary report to the President, Ziegler said, it "ap- pears that the situation was very poorly handled and there appears lo be some error in judgment" involved on the part of U.S. officials. Ziegler said "appropriate ac- tion will be taken" after Nixon sees tile full reports he has or- dered from Secretary of State William P. Rogers and Secre- tary of Transportation John Volpe.

In the view of a majority of the committee, the investigation has not turned up any creditable evidence that would warrant preparation of articles of Im- peachment against Douglas. No breakdown of the vote was made available. The committee's findings are contained in a draft report of the Investigation prepared for submission to the House Judi- ciary Committee. All five mem- bers of Ihe special committee are members of Ihe Judiciary Committee, and bolh panels are headed by Rep. Emanuel Cellar, D-N.Y.

Nixon called for a preliminary report Monday morning and got it early In the aflernoon, Ziegler said. On Capitol Hill, Rep. John S. Monagan, D-Conn., also asked for an investigation into the "brutal recapture of the defect- ing Lithuanian sailor" by the Russians. Earlier, the Coast Guard, which is under Volpe's jurisdic- tion, said the defector was de- nied sanctuary after the captain of the Soviet vessel accused him of stealing from the ship's fund. Adm. Chester R. Vender, the Coast Guard commandant, also said the sailor reduced his chances of sanctuary by leaping from his Russian ship onlo the Coast Guard vessel rather than jumping into the water as he had originally planned. The Slate Department, mean- v.'liile, issued a statement saying it "naturally and deeply" re- gretted the incident, and under questioning added specific re- gret for Hie forced return of the sailor to the Soviet ship. Press officer Robert J.
