By PERRY SMITH Associated Press Writer LIMA, Ohio (AP) _ Tlie coun- ly prosecuting attorney today cajled for a grand jury investigation of the fatal shool- luuched off violence .and a call- up of the National Guard. He did so amid varying accounts of what had happened. Guardsmen helped maintain order in this Industrial city after a night of rock throwing, fire bombing and vandalism. Lawrence Huffman, Allen County prosecuting attorney, called for the grand jury inves- tigation today but set no dale. Police said the trouble started when the woman grabbed a po- lice officer's gun and fired at them. However, a black minis- ter said several wilnesses told him the police were questioning a boy in the back scat of a cruiser about a stolen bicycle and were-choking him. They said the woman. Christine Rick, went to the boy's aid. In disorders following the inci- dent Wednesday four persons were wounded by gunfire, in- cluding two policemen. Gov. James A. Rhodes or- dered 350 Guardsmen into the city to aid Lima's 80-man police force in maintaining order in this northwest Ohio city of A slate of emergency declaration and a curfew had failed .to halt vlolen.ce.

"Our prob- lem h.as been predominantly with the young he said. "Some of them gel involved and others go along for the ride." Burnett said many of the youths are "united around" the Black Panther manifesto, but are not officially affiliated with the group. While major flareups have been rare, local newsmen, have often described the city as a "racial tlnderbox." A policeman, Tom Lee, shot from ambush and critically wounded last January. A young black has been indicted in Ihe case. Young blacks initiated a lengthy boycott of city schools last year, claiming racial dis- crimination. The city's top law officer, Po- lice Chief William Davenport, is a Negro. So is Hie inspector of tbe department's uniform divi- sion, Robert demons. Davenport resigned last year, when Mayor Morris disputed his order to remove police cars from a troubled Negro area of Ihe city.

WHBKLER Associated Press Writer PNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) The. Communist com- mand seemingly must now face the threat that U.S. jets will show up on any Cambodian bat- tlefield at any lime. The result could be a slower and more cautious pace for ene- my. offensives, and possibly a revision of strategy. Yet wheth- er. U.S. air power can signifi- cantly imporve the Lon Nol gov- ernment's chances for survival remains to be seen. Senior officers in Saigon have recalled that U.S. fighter-bomb- ers began helping South Viet- namese troops in 1965 but only An Awoelated Newt Analytlt the massive commitment of American ground forces stemmed a powerful enemy tide. One of the government's most serious problems has been lack of heavy firepower, that is fight- er-bombers and-artillery. Sever- al defeats could be traced to this factor. Now willi U.S. jets apparently ready lo pour loads of bombs, napalm and explosive cannon (ire into North Vietnamese and Viet Cong positions, when called upon, the gap in firepower has been partly bridged. Officially, Cambodia has adopted the U.S. line that air strikes in this country are to in- terdict enemy supply lines and infiltrating troops, with the aim of saving American lives in Vietnam. U.S. fighter-bombers and B52 Stratofortresses have been bombing enemy supply lines in Cambodia for'weeks and have made limited appearances at Kampong Thorn and Siem Reap north and northwest of Phnom Penh. But as far as is known, this week marked the beginning of the process whereby Cambodian field commanders call out coor- dinates to circling U.S. war- planes and direct them lo close- in raids aimed only al relieving enemy pressure on Cambodian field units. A Cambodian high command spokesman refased to comment on witnesses reports of one such strike, but suggested thai any- thing that hurts Cambodia's en- emies will also indirectly 'aid U.S. units in Vietnam. Since most of the enemy forces fighting in Cambodia are the same lhal fought U.S. forces before the Cambodian war broke out nearly five months ago, the argument appears lo many to have some merit. U.S. commanders in Vietnam have always said the way to fight any enemy is lo strike his area be- fore he can hil yours. There seems no question an enemy victory in Cambodia would free elite North Vietnamese and Viet Cong units for forays into South Vietnam. One question in Phnom .Penh is whether U.S. air strikes would continue if important segments of world and U.S. opinion violently opposed Uie raids. Bui al the moment Cam- bodian commanders in Uie field are delighted. Corpus Begins Cracking Down on Profiteers CORPUS Tex.

Gasoline station operators who boosted prices and an out-of- town, business man capitalizing on the need here for Ice lost lo police tactics which city officials admitted were "erf questionable "Under the circumstances, though, I. don't .'think anybody will take It to said one official.

"It's amazing how many regu- lations service station men have to follow lo avoid creating fire said City Manager Marvin Townsend. The service station people quickly gol Ihe point.
