The windshield of his car shattered in his face after Mitchell's patrol car was struck by a skidding truck.

Arson Sift Remains Of Cathedral SAN FRANCISCO (API-Arson experts sifted through cooling ashes at historic St. Mary's Ro- man Catholic Cathedral Saturday, seeking the cause of a fire that burned out the interior of the church Friday night. The brick had the 1906 earthquake and previous fires still stood. But light shone through the steel ribs of the i-oof Saturday. A priest suffered burns to his hands when he tried vainly to res- cue the Blessed Sacraments. Two firemen were slightly injured. Forty teen-agers attending a dance in a lower hall were led from the building safely. A squad of arson investigators moved into the skeletal remains of the 71-year-old church at day- break. Barbara Schofield, 19, told po- lice she saw four teen-age boys fleeing from the building minutes before flames burst through the stained glass windows. "We sure burned hell out of that Mrs. Sd.ofield quoted one of the youths. "We'll build right here as quick- ly as we Archbishop Joseph McGucken said. "This is snap judgment, but I doubt if the cathedral could be reconstructed even if .the walls hold." Nearly everything inside the building was destroyed. The mar- ble altar stood amid the charred remains. Archbishop McGucken estimat- ed the damages. He said special vestments, sacred vessels and other special religious effects were not inside the build- ing. "Thank God they were not he said. Thousands of pedestrians jammed streets near the fire site, Van Ness Avenue and O'Farrell Street, in the heart of San Fran- cisco. The fire raged. for more than two hours.

Fifteen of the women will work' in.three interviewing crews; five women per crew, and the other two will serve as coders. They will be interviewing "park- ers" in the city's business district. Jinks asked that any woman interested in the work once interview applicants on September 12.

They will be asking "parkers" where they came from, their destination, their purpose, where the vehicle., housed and other pertinent ques- tions. The information they receive will later be compiled and serve as a partial basis for a massive survey not only..cover the current situation but make projections as far as 20 years in the future. All interviewers will be properly- identified and Jinks stressed each would have.a full understanding of the job before they went to work. Doctors Report Soblen's Heart Strengthening LONDON Robert A.
