But As Waters receded in upstream areas More bodies were being discovered. Helicopters still were picking survivors from roofs and tree tops. The Sun peeked out Between the lowering Clouds for the first time in Days but week Long Rains still fell intermittently on some flooded sections. They began with the Advent of topical Strom Agnes.

Nixon tries out cot during visit to flood refugee Center a wire photo he took plunge with half million Fri searching for Hijacker Peru ind. A the Fri mounted a massive manhunt in North Central Indiana saturday for a Young Hijacker who parachuted or fell from a jetliner with $502,000 in Ransom Money after having to be shown How to use his Parachute. Although the Day Long search was still fruitless Early saturday evening Jim Martin agent in charge of the Federal Bureau of investigation in Indiana said it was being expanded and would continue a Rock by Rock if Martin spoke briefly with newsmen after calling some 150 Law enforcement officers into a meeting at a school a few Miles Southeast of Peru. At that meeting information and leads were exchanged and Martin lined out an extended area of search based on reports from Farmers that their dogs a were Active in the area to which the search was being extended. Some too Fri agents from Chicago Cincinnati Cleveland several Indiana cities and elsewhere were assembled Here for the search Martin said As Well As state and local officers. However there was some speculation that the Hijacker might not have bailed out of the american airlines Boeing 727 safely. The Hijacker had switched planes in St. Louis after a late Model automobile mysteriously crashed through a Fence at the Airport and collided with the first hijacked plane As it prepared to take off under the control of the gunman. The Driver of the car was hospitalized and authorities were investigating. When the second plane took off from St. Louis the Hijacker and six hostages three male flight Crew members two stewardesses and a male passenger were aboard. The other passengers had been let off at St. Louis and the Hijacker had received two parachutes and the Money in a Burlap sack. After the Hijacker plunged from the plane in the Peru area and the plane flew to Chicago there was one unconfirmed report that pieces of clothing were found near the exit ramp of the Jet. This triggered speculation the Hijacker might have been sucked from the plane by air currents and fallen to his death.

In St. Louis he had trouble with explanations on use of the parachutes and an airlines Engineer was sent aboard to instruct him spokesmen for the airline said. Complicating the search was the possibility the Hijacker dropped into the 31-mile-Long missis sinew Reservoir part of the flood control system of the romantic Wabash River. Object of the search was a Man described As about 30, five feet to or la inches tall 170 pounds a Large round nose and pock Marks and open sores on his face. The Hijacker reportedly was armed with a .45-caliber sub machine gun of the lightweight wire Frame Type commonly called a a grease gun and a hand grenade state police and the Fri said. He also had a shovel provided along with the Ransom Money and parachutes. State police asked themselves Here whether he wanted the shovel to Bury the Parachute hide the Ransom or dig a narrow foxhole to cover himself with foliage. There were no an Swers. The flight had started in new York City and after it left St. Louis was bound for Tulsa Oklahoma City los Angeles and san Diego. The Hijacker turned it around after it left St. Louis where he apparently boarded and ordered its return. Inside Reading radiology updated Cates digs Sand. Page 2a women campaigners.
