Carney's Drugstore burglarized twice WASHINGTON (UPI) — All major CIA activities have had presidential approval, actxird-ing to both Vice President Nelson Rockefeller and Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz. > But just what those actjfvities were is still a big mys^ry in Washington and still provoking debate.    — Rockefeller, whose commission report on the CIA was released last week, said Sunday one reason thé panel did not develop cxinclusive evidence on alleged CIA foreign assassination plots was because so many persons implicated in them are dead. He hinted his commissicMi may have obtained information ‘President Kennedy 'and his brother, former Attorney General Robert Kennedy, were involved in the alleg^ plots Blit he emphasized none of the secret information was strcMig enough to support conclusions of guilt. Goldwater. a member of tte Senate committee investigating the CIA, backed up Rockefeller by saying no major CIA action, such as an    assassination, “would have taken place* without the Presiiient knowing about it ” He al^ said Sunday he had seen no \ evidence any CIA .assassination plots were ever attempted but that he “wouldn’t be surprised” if the White House considered killing Cuban Premier Fidel Vastro. Dme Magazine reported Sunday the CIA plotted in 1960 to kill Castro by supplying him with poisoned (ñgars, but never carried out the plan because there was no assurance Castro, would not give the (ñgaré to other pecjble. ^    t The Rocikefeller Commission' report was to be given officially to^y to the Senate investigating committee, which Wednesday will hear from CIA director William Colby testifying under tight security about the 1963 assassination of South Vietnamese President Nguyen Dinh Diem., A CJolby appearance before the House comnattee investigating the CIA last week was canceled when an internal dispute resulted in the resignation of its chairmaii, Lucien Nedzi, D-Mich. Rockefeller’s hint of Kennedy involvement in assassination plots resulted in a statement frewn two former aides «(rf Robert Kennedy, who accused the vice presiiient of ignoring the ccmdusioiis of Ms own report or “dehberately lying.” Daring late- night thieves pressed their luck over the weekend and' succeeded in entering Carney’s Drugstore, 102-104 S. Main St., Dpton, two ni^^ in a row in search of drugs. *Ppton Qty Police and Dpton Cdunty Sheriff’s deputi^ were still baffled by Fri(iay evenings’ break- in at the store when they were notified by employes SuQl^y that the thieves had once again entered the downtown building. • Store employes were busy oyer the weekend trying to assess the loss. ‘A variety of prescription drugs and pills were believed taken by the intruders. Pharmacrist Robert Bames was asked to give police a list of the stolen items andean estimate of loss. Die first CTtry irto the store was discovered Saturday morning when employes reporting for work ^ound plaster (» the main floor and a gaping hole in the high ceiling over the ‘ ma^ counters. A brief inspection revealed that the intruders had :aken drugs from the storaglenxiTi in the rear of the store. Police were called and an^ffort was made to retrace the steps of the burgiirs. Dpton Patrolman Gary Stout who followed the intricate path of the intruders said Saturday morning, “You need a road map to follow these guys.” Entry was gained by pushing up a ceiling panel to the H and R Block tax office, 109 W. Jefferson. St., "Tipton, and crawling across the ceiling in the offiiie to an overhead skylight. The skylight led to the' roof of the H and R Bl(x;k building. Once on the nxif the intruders pulled open a large steel covering over a window and entered vacant storage nxims above the drugstore. Police found two holes in the fl(X)ring where the thieves pulled 1^5 the fl(X)ring and kmxrked out the ceiling in the drustore below. It was believed that the thieves used a blanket rope to lower themsevles in to the drugstore to take the drugs? The method of entry was similar to that used on April 17 when the drugstore was also the target of nixrtumal visitors. At that time thieves dropped through the ceiling to steal a quantity of drugs. Die intricate path through the H. and R. Block offi(ie was not used previously, hovyever. No arrests were made in the April robbery and officers believe that the same thieves have entered each time. •The thieves are believed to be young men of small build because ‘ ofJ^he narrow holes in the ceiling. The thieves also would have to be capable of climbing a 20- f(X)t rope in the process. Officers said that entry through the H. and R. Block building was. in plain view of traffic (m West Jefferson Street. No reports have been receivéd, however, from anyone witnessing suspicious activity in the area during the early morning hours Saturday.

Die stimuli have been higher gasoline prices, govemnient pressure and foreign cars that accounted for a record one of every five sales in first five months of 1975. “Diey are trying to respond now to the fact that the American car has to fundam^ tally change due to goven^hent and public pressures for better fuel ecxxiomy,” said David Eisenberg of the New York firm of Sanford, Bernstein and Co. “Diey’ll rise to ■> the occasion,” he said. “Bút it will be expensive and it’s not going to happen easily.”    ^    • General ^feto^s will introduce a mini-car this fall and plans major size reductions in i(^ standards-size cars for 1977.
