A How much did they get its like the Market flexible a said John Keeney the hotels Security chief As he stood in the lobby monday. A at the moment its going scores of detectives pressed an investigation into what police commissioner Patrick v.

The new York daily news said today that investigators believe the gang May be the pm one that hit the Harbor Island spa. A Miami Beach resort hotel for $2 million in Cash and jewelry on March 31, 1966. Police had already said the gangs tools and methods matched those of the bandits who took $15,000 in Cash and an undetermined amount of jewelry Early Christmas morning from the Drake hotel on Park Avenue. The Well dressed gang arrived at the Pierre in a sleek limousine shortly after 4 sunday and persuaded the Security guard to open the locked door by saying they were guests with reservations.

By William l. Ryan a special correspondent if peking a propaganda is a guide. Communist China a leaders have conjured up a bad dream for themselves and have concluded that if two foreign devils haunt them the one closer at hand is by far the More ominous. What peking is saying seems to lend substance to president Nixon a expressed Hope for better relations with Mainland China. He said sunday night he did not expect anything approaching resumed diplomatic relations but he did Hope that his february visit to peking would produce a a normalization in terms of setting up some method of communication better than we currently communists living in their own world of double talk do not always say what they mean but peking seems agitated about soviet intentions As it reads them. This involves something like a huge soviet noose looped about much of that so called third world of a a medium sized and Small nations in Asia and Africa for which peking now claims to speak. As red China puts it the russians Are reverting to Type acting like the czars of old trying to establish a a world peking insists that soviet activity in the asian subcontinent is connected with a scheme to build a a sealant Archt that would extend from the Mediterranean and Black seas in a southward dropping semicircle through the red sea the arabian sea the Indian Ocean the Bay of Bengal around Southeast Asia and up to the sea of Japan. That said a recent article carried by the official red chinese news Agency is Why Moscow is so deeply involved in arms Aid to India and Why the soviet Fleet has shown the Flag All along the arabian sea and Indian Ocean a to turn India into an important base for its expansion in the Indian Ocean. Soviet revisionism has been vigorously bolstering up the Indian reactionaries for years Quot said the article. Moscow it said regarded the Indian pakistani War As a Good Chance to step up soviet expansion in the Indian Ocean and a further its control of clearly the suggestion in All this was that China regarded Russia As the major threat.
