Most of the passengers were rescued or scambled to safe- ty. Officials said at least 13 persons were killed and 21 hospitalized with shock, burns and other in- juries in Brazil's fourth major air disaster in 10 months. The big DCS stayed afloat for 15 minutes after hitting the water and then sank to the muddy bot- tom in 15 feet of water. "Some bodies may still be in the a fire department official said. Officials said 11 passengers were missing but some were known to have survived and left the air- port without notifying anyone. The Panair do Brasil airliner carrying 93 passengers arid crew of 11 stopped over here on a flight from Buenos Aires, Argentina, to Lisbon, Portugal. A stewardess, Fernada Fortu- nata, was the only crewmember reported killed. It was not determined immedi- Th'ere's one good thing about life it's only TEMPORARY. (Copr. Gen. Fea.

An airline official said the pilot, Renato reported'that when he tried to lift the DCS off the runway, it failed to respond normally. The aircraft's operator, Osmar Anterio Ferreira, said one engine began shaking as the plane approached the takeoff point "The pilot' tried to stop the he said, "but it was going too fast and we skidded off the end of the -runway and crashed into the water." Witnesses said the plane veered off the runway at a 30-degree angle, plowed through a thick, 4- foot-high reinforced conrete wall and across a roadi and plunged into the bay. Two engines were ripped off be- fore the plane stopped in deep mud and about. 15 feet of water some 50 yards from shore. The tide pulled the wreckage about 500 'yards farther out. Naiur, one of the pas- sengers, said the plane's right wing was on fire when the air- craft hit the water. One rescuer said he recovered five bodies from the submerged wreckage and pulled so many other persons to safety that he lost count Panair said .75 passengers boarded the, plane in Rio and seven in Sao OPaulo.

More than 100 men from over 'a six state area attended lec- tures and demonstrations con- cerned with atmospheric parti- culate sampling; -water quality studies-and environmental radi- ation surveillance. Much local interest has origi- nated in the water quality phase of the Institute, looking ahead to construction and opening of the Southwest Regional Water Pollution Laboratory here. Monday afternoon, students in this area of discussion heard A. F. Gaudy, professor of civil en- gineering at OSU, discuss the vital area of industrial waste. "Relatively few p e o p I Gaudy said, "realize the signifi- cance of water to this county and its continued industrial growth. In fact, it may be one of the major limiting factors to continued expansion of our econ- omy. "We face a great challenge to develop and expand our use of he declared.

Gaudy stressed that "re-use" of water is becoming increas- ingly important and in this single 'area -perhaps lies our best chance to expand our over-all water potential. As .'illustrations of the com- plex.and diversified waste prob- lems industry creates, Gaudy sketched briefly some of the waste products created by the pulp and paper industry and the petro-chemical industry. He called for intensified scien- tific study of waste problems, aimed at -improving recovering systems and re-use of water. Dr. H. W. Jackson, SEC biolo- gist, also appeared on' gram, twice during the day. His afternoon lecture dealt with pollution effects on aquatic life. Dr. Jackson's presentation holds more than passing interest to local fishermen. He sketched briefly the obvious effects of pol- lution where toxic substances are introduced into a stream or lake and kill fish and marine life. But he also mentioned far less obvious and subtle dangers which must be faced in modern America. He noted, for instance, that studies now. under way indicate that outboard motors and their present exhaust system may be a factor in tainting the flesh of certain fish'to-give an undesir- able taste. He also commented that cer- tain insecticides and pesticides which can be out and out killers of acquatic life if used in heavy, quantities can also taint fish flesh if introduced in surprising- ly small quantities in a marine situation. He outlined briefly the insidi- ous effects of siltation in streams, caused perhaps by con- struction or other activities.-In. these cases, fine silt is deposit- (Centinued on Page Two) DETECTIVES: These men are participating in the itmoi- pheric participate sampling division of the Training Insti- tute, now underway at East1 Central.

The cells were designed to capture the sun's energy .arid convert it into power for the satellites' equip- ment. The statement said it was gen- erally expected that the blast would produce the radiation belt and that "the phenomenon-entails no hazard to the earth or its at- mosphere."

In the West German capital of Bonn, authoritative sources said the West German Embassy in Washington has been instructed to ask the Western Allies to take two additional steps. 1. Ask the International Red Cross to intervene with the Com- munists to stop the shooting. 2. Ask the Russians to allow West Berliners to visit relatives in East Berlin.

Checkpoint Charlie is the crossing point of the wall in the U. S. sector where East German guards mortally wounded a fleeing" East- German, touching off a series of disorders in West Berlin.

Dobrynin, Rusk Talk Of Crisis WASHINGTON (API-Secretary of State.Dean Busk called in So- viet Ambassador-Anatoly F.

U.S. sources stated also that the leeway given U.S.troops in Berlin does not include permission to help East Germans in their at- tempts to. escape to the West Any assistance, 'it was said, 'would be in.'Dobrynin on short notice after the Western Al- lies' had .discussed what to do about mounting 'tensions in the. wake-of last Friday's slow death of a wounded .East German-lying on the Communist side of the walL Angry West Berliners have been demonstrating with such acts as stone throwing at Soviet vehicles entering West Berlin.

"The secretary underlined the need for the four commandants to get together to find ways to re- duce tensions in the Reap said. "It-is and has been.our position that the situation can best be dealt with by those on the scene." U.S. officials blamed the Rus- sians for summarily rejecting re- newed Western proposals for four- power, discussion of the Berlin wall problem. They acknowledged that the West has rejected Russian com- plaints about the stonings. But they said the mortal wounding of the East-German youth was a far more serious matter than rocks hurled at. a bus carrying'Soviet soldiers.'
