   Appleton Post-Crescent (Newspaper) - March 3, 1973, Appleton, Wisconsin                                The bunker and steeple A member of the American Indian Movement sits in a bunker with his rifle in front of a church that was still occupied today by Indians at Wounded Knee, S.D.

(AP) Federal lawmen in Armored vehicles patrolled the penmetet Wounded Knee today as hopes for a quick peace with Sioux Indians who took over the village five days ago dwindled in an "outbreak of sporadic gunfire. Ralph Erickson, a special assistant U.S. attorney general, said late Friday, "FBI agents and marshals are being exposed to gunfire Fire seems to be continuing and it causes us concern." Erickson specified three instances of lawmen being fired on. He said federal agents did not return the gunfire. No injuries were reported by either side. Erickson also said that talks on Friday with leaders of the American Indian Movement, which led the takeover, were unproductive. msiDE Church Page Comics Editorials Obituaries Sports TV log Theaters .A-2 A-4 B-4 B'2 A-7 A-7 f Sunny? Fog should lift and the sun shine bv Sunday. Weather map on page B-4 The 200 Indians in the village, most of them Oglala Sioux, entered Wounded Knee late Tuesday, raided a trading post and held 11 persons hostage until mid- day Thursday. Erickson said he is not satisfied that the hostages now are free, as AIM leaders declare. He also said it was difficult to learn during the talks what the Indians want in exchange for laying down their weapons and surrendering. He made clear the Justice Department position that there is no question of amnesty, that charges will be filed against the Indians if violations are found. He said kidnaping is one of the charges being considered. Inside the Wounded Knee compound, AIM leaders told newsmen they would surrender the historic, one-street village if federal officials placed charges only against leaders of the takeover. They repeated their demand that the Senate investigate their charges of corruption in the Bureau of Indian Affairs, in the Oglala Tribe and on the Pine Ridge Reservation, where of the tribe reside. Friday's somber mood followed only 12 hours after South Dakota's two senators, George S. McGovern and James Abourezk, assured the Indians every effort would be made to give them a fair hearing. Erickson said that during his meeting with AIM leaders, Agnes Gildersleeve, 68, an owner of the trading post, and two members of her family accompanied the Indians and told Erickson that they no longer were being held hostage. Erickson told newsmen, however, that if residents are not being held against their own will, "Why don't they come cut? SUNDAY POST-CRESCENT FEATURES Keep {heir bobies, or .not?

High-rise apartment crumbles BAILEY'S CROSSROADS, Va. (AP) saw the struts holding the two top floors begin to shake. Then the top floor fell into the next one and the building began to split right down the middle." For 30 seconds or so, continued workman Robert Taylor, the down ward movement accelerated as 24 floors of a concrete high-rise apartment under construction caved in one-by-one Fri- day afternoon. By today the known death toll was five. Another 10 were missing and feared dead. There were 34 injured. Taylor was not hurt. What caused the collapse remains in doubt. State and federal investigations are underway. Rescue operations proceeded caut- iously as large chunks of concrete dangled precariously from both sides of the planned 26-story building, among the highest in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. An 80-foot wide section of the build- ing collapsed, leaving other unfinished sections on each side. "We had about two seconds warning a rumbling sound like Niagara said workman Larry Rivers. "I ran for my life. I looked back and saw fo ur of my buddies being crushed by concrete." Rivers was working in the basement area. Most of the rubble fell and atop a two-story concrete parking structure under construction. Officials estimated 55 men were working in those areas. Most of the dead and missing were among them. Alfred Cole was working on a top floor when the concrete floor around him began cracking. "It sounded like a heavy he said. Cole and about 25 other workmen began running down the stairs, only to find they were blocked at the eighth Continued on Page 3 Post-Crescent 1 6 Pages Appleton-Neenah-Menasha, Wis., Saturday, March 3, 1 973 15 Cents Nixon urges measures to prevent terrorism WASHINGTON (AP) The execut- ion of two American diplomats in Khartoum has brought calls for justice and preventive measures against inter- Cleo A.

"It was with the deepest sense of Guerrillas' demands rejected KHARTOUM, Sudan, (AP) The Palestinian guerrillas who executed two American diplomats and shot a Belgian envoy demanded safe passage out of Sudan today with the two Arab diplomats they still hold captive, and the Sudanese government immediately rejected the demand. Egypt's Middle East News Agency said the Black September commands asked the Sudanese government to supply a plane and send along a senior" official as a "guarantee for our safety." There wers no immediate indication where they wanted to go. The Sudanese government imme'di- ately rejected their demands and or- dered the guerrillas instead to hand over the captive Arab diplomats and the bodies of the envoys slain Friday night. They were Cleo A, Noel Jr., the new U.S. ambassador to Sudan, and the outgoing U.S. charge d'affaires, G. Curtis Moore. The Sudanese govern- ment said the guerrillas claimed they also killed the Belgian charge d'affaires. Guy Eid. The bodies and the two Arab hostages were still in the Saudi Arabian Embassy, where the seven Palestinian terrorists have been out since bursting into a farewell reception Thursday night for Moore. Sudanese authorities began evacuat- ing a four-block area around the Saudi Embassy. Soldiers said they were preparing for "a military operation" to recover the bodies and free the captive diplomats. But U.S. Embassy informants said the Continued on Page 3 grief that I have learned of the acts of terrorism which took the lives of Am- bassador Cleo A. Noel and deputy chief of mission George Curtis Nixon said Friday night. 'The United States is emphasizing its strong feeling that the perpetrators of this crime must be brought to justice." Moore and Noel were executed by members of the Black September terrorist group about 26 hours after the terrorists broke into the Saudi Arabian Embassy. "This tragic event underscores once again the need for all nations to take a firm stand against the menace of inter- national Nixon said in a statement released from the White House. The recently named U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, John Scali, said the executions represented a new "demand on the U.N. community for meaningful and effective action to halt international terrorist acts." The assembly in December blocked U.S. "and Western Proposals for preparation of a treaty providing for the punishment or extradition of internat- ional terrorists. It voted instead for study proposals sponsored by Arab, African and Asian countries. The terrorists originally had demanded the release of Sirhan B. Sirhan, who was convicted of assas- sinating Robert F. Kennedy, and the release of various members of the or- ganization held in Jordan, Israel and Germany. After the killings, Secretary of State William P. Rogers released a statement, saying "no words can express our shock and grief at the senseless and barbarous murder." The executions were the latest of some 50 terrorist incidents aimed at American officials abroad in recent years. Noel, 54, was a veteran U.S. foreign service officer who only recently had arrived in Khartoum. The Sudan and the United States had restored relations last summer, and Moore had been the American representative in Khartoum until Noel's arrival. A native of Oklahoma, he joined the foreign service in 1949 and was a specialist in Middle East affairs. He married the former Lucille McHenry. Moore, 47, had been scheduled to leave Khartoum next Monday to be reassigned with the foreign service. He began his career with the State Department in 1950 as a resident officer in Frankfurt, Germany. He married the former Sarah Stewart. The Noels have two children: John Francis, 20, who is studying at American University in Washington and staying witn a lofeign service family here: and Janet, College in Ohio. Noel's widow accompanied him to Khartoum but didn't attend the recep- tion.

(AP Wirephoto) Bulgarian airliner crashes in Russia MOSCOW (AP) Balkan Airlines Ilyushin 18. carrying 17 passengers and eight crewmen, crashed near the wes- tern fringe of Sheremetyevo airport today as it was approaching on a flight from Sofia, Western airline sources reported. Tass said: 'The crew and passengers died." An official of a Western airline said Sheremetyevo's instrument landing system was not working at the time of the crash and the pilot was making his approach manually. The weather was clear. Boston schools lose aid BOSTON (AP) hassome schools that are almost all black and others that are almost all white a situation federal officials say was intentional. So Boston became on Fnday the first city outside the South to be cut off from federal education funds, a loss for the school system of more than million this year. A issue is what amounts to two parallel school systems, one in black areas, the other in white. Transferring between the two is difficult, complicated by limited openings and incompatible grade structures, authorities say. The city says all of this came about by accident The UJS. Department of Health, Education and Welfare says it was premeditated. The two systems emerged in 1967, when the Boston School Committee announced that it was phasing out its traditional junior high schools and establishing middle schools. At that time, all of the city had junior highs with grades 7-9 and high schools with grades 10-12. The new middle schools had grades 6-S and the high schools 9-12. The school committee said the new organization would make it easier to achieve racial balance and better accom modate youngsters reaching maturity earlier. It said it would set up middle schools all over the city and do away with junior highs. But the middle schools got only as far as the black ghettoes, and then the changeover stopped. At the same time, the school committee set up complex patterns under which elementary schools in white neigh- borhoods fed into junior highs, and elementary schools m black areas fed into middle schools. The middle schools, in turn, fed into four-year high schools and the junior highs into three-year high schools. Pupils were allowed to transfer to high schools outside their areas, but they were restricted by space. Preference for admission was given to pupils who lived near the high schools. Tranfernng was also made difficult because the grade groupings were different. Martin H. Gerry, an assistant director for special programs in HEW, testified before an HEW administrative judge that the school committee was willing to make exceptions to its feeder school plan when it allowed white students to escape black schools and go to predominantly white schools. But whenever there was a chance that a school would send white students into the black system or send black students into the white system, the school committee created special The judge, Lawrence M. Ring, ordered that all federal funds be cut off on the grounds Boston operates a dual school system in violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Tass said the Civil Aviation Ministry had set up a commission to investigate the cause of the crash. It was the third crash of an airliner at Sheremetyevo in five months. An Ilyushin 62 of the Soviet state airline. Aeroflot, crashed near Sheremetyevo on Oct 13, killing all 176 persons aboard. It was the worst air crash in civil aviation history. A Japan Airlines DCS crashed Nov. 28 at the international airport, about 25 miles northwest of Moscow. Sixty-two people perished in that crash. An Austrian Airlines spokesman said the Balkan airliner crashed around 1 p.m. ROW arrival in Philippines to be televised NEW YORK {AP) The CBS television network plans live coverage Sunday of the arrival of released American prisoners of war at Clark Air Base in the Philippines. NBC and ABC have announced they will cover the arrival on film or videotape and show the pictures later in the day. A CBS spokesman said Friday the network expected live coverage would run from about 3 to 5 a.m. EST Sunday. Taped highlights will be broadcast from 10 to 11 a.m. EST. NBC said it will fly its film to Hong Kong for transmission to this omntry by satellite and will show it on the Today Show Monday morning.
