Only one survivor was found. Almost four hours after the vacation flight crashed a man was found alive on the beach, his clothes burned or ripped off. All others on the twin-en- gine plane apparently perish- ed. Only three bodies were re- covered in pre dawn dark- ness. Searchers who were hamper- ed by stormy waters said many of those in the plane presumably were trapped in- side and drowned. Among those on the passen- ger list were Eduardo Braun Menendez, one of Argentina's most famous scientists, and Or. Jose Mezzadra, another well-known scientist. On Special Flight The plane belonged to Aus- tral Airlines, a new company known throughout the country for its penguin trademark be- cause of flights to Argentina's cold and bleak southland. The airliner was on a spe- cial summertime vacation flight from Buenos Aires to Mar del Plata, 240 miles to the south, and then to Bahia Blanca, another 260 miles west. It was coming in for a land- Ing at Mar del Plata in windy and rainy weather when it smashed into the ocean about 150 yards from shore. The airline said it carried 47 passengers and a crew of 5. The line did not believe any foreigners were among the passengers but it could sure since they were not listed by nationality. Engines Failed One eyewitness said he heard the plane's engines fail just before the crash. A caretaker at a resort park said the plane apparently de- veloped trouble as it came down for a landing, tried to regain altitude and then plunged into the sea. He said he heard a terrific explosion. This was the first fatal crash for Austral and the sec- ond major crash in South America this week.

He also discovered that a public agency has a heart. Hogan, now 52, has been a fugitive for almost 32 years. In 1926 he stole a car in Cleveland. Sent to a fed- eral road camp at Alderson, W. Va., in 1927, he escaped after serving three months of a 3-year sentence. Hogan got a job and mar- ried. In World war II he served as a tank driver and was awarded the silver star. Five years ago his wife died. Since then Hogan has been both father and mother to his five children. Last month the FBI seiz- ed Hogan as a fugitive. He was sent to the federal house of detention. Hogan appealed to the legal aid society for help. Atty. Bernard Moldow took the case. Moldow went be- fore U.S. Dist. Judge Archie O. Dawson yesterday and cited a proclamation issued by President Truman in 1945. Truman granted full pardon to any convict who served honorably in Ameri- can forces for at least one year during World war II. Dawson freed Hogan on his own recognizance, pend- ing a hearing on a full par- don Monday. The hearing is regarded as a technicality. Hogan, a roofer, went im- mediately to his apartment on the lower east side to be reunited with his children- Carol Ann, 14, Barbara, 11, Joseph, 10, William, 9, and Margaret, 7.

An a Visitor Has No Comment On Session Washington President Eisenhower met with Soviet Deputy Premier Anastas I. Mickoyan today for a discus- sion of east-west differences, including Berlin, the divison of Germany and disarma- ment. Mikoyan arrived at the White House about two min- utes before his 9 a. m. ap- pointment time. He was met by Brig. Gen. Andrew J. Goodpaster, White House staff secretary. Soviet Ambassa- dor Mikhail Menshikov and translater Oleg Troyonovsky accompanied Mikoyan. Goodpaster was waiting out- side, in subfreezing but sun- ny weather, to receive Mikoy- an at the White House door. They shook hands and Mikoy- an murmured a barely audi- good morning" in Eng- ish. As Mikoyan walked through the White House lobby he had no comment other than a good morning for dozens of news- men gathered there for the meeting. Before the meeting with Mi- Icoyan the president got a half hour briefing from Sec. of State Dulles. Dulles arrived at the White House as scores of uniformed policemen were deployed in the streets around the White House as a security precau- tion. Pickets Block Away A dozen or so pickets parad- ed a block away from the White House as the confer- ence went on inside the ex- ecutive mansion. Mikoyan probably did not even see tho placard-carrying pickets. The pickets said they were just plain American citizens who had gotten in touch .with each other and decided to make a protest.
