Break Info Jail BELLEVILLE, HI. (AP) Lawbreakers just couldn't wait to get into the 54 million St. Clair County jail, not due to open until November. During the weekend, burglars broke in and stole construction workers' hand tools. Worse, they made off with keys to the cell blocks. ATHENS (AP) The chief Athens coroner confirmed today that Eugenie Niarchos wrote a note just before she took an ov- erdose of barbiturates last May 4. But Dimilrios Kapsaskis, director of forensic medicine for the Greek ministry of justice, said he couldn't disclose the contenls because that would be "contravening the law." Aprosecutor has recom- mended that Mrs. Niarchos's husband, Stavros, the Greek- shipping magnate, be charged with causing fatal injuries in connection witli his wife's death. Dr. Kapsaskis was one of six medical specialists who per formed on autopsy on Mrs Niarchos and concluded she died from (Be overdose of barbi turates. They also reported finding bruises on her face, throat and chest. Niarchos, 01, told an invcsti gating magistrate the bruises resulted from his efforts to re- vive his 43-year-old wife. Dr. Kapsaskis said the note was "discovered in the bedrooiv where she di.ed" on her hus- band's private Aegean island. Wild Scenes Al Amsterdam AMSTERDAM (Reuters) About 30 persons, three of them hit by police bullets, wore in- jured in a seven-hour battle be- tween police and hippies in the Dam square in the heart of Am- sterdam Monday night, authori- ties reported today. Police used firearms and water cannon and made re- peated charges to quell the riot, described as the worst the city has ever seen. S'lOro windows were smashed in the city centre and goods val- ued at thousands of dollars were looted from a jewelry store and a perfume shop. The hippies were protesting against a municipal ban sleeping overnight on the steps of the national war memorial in front of the royal palace. Subversives Blamed For Blast Wis. (AP) A blast that destroyed a Univer- sity of Wisconsin military re- search centre, killed a physics scholar and injured several oilier persons apparently was the work of subversives using an explosive-laden truck, inves- tigators say. Frank Roberts, deputy state fire marshal, said the explosion had "unbelievable power." "This is no kid stuff." A university engineer said damage may exceed SB million. The FBI and military intellig- ence took over the investigation. The pre-dawn explosion Mon- day prompted demands for in- creased security patrols at the campus, where destructive student demonstra- tions have forced officials to call for National Guard rein- forcements three times since February, 1869. Found In Hotel LONDON (AP) An Ameri- can and two Lebanese were held by police today after a raid on the London Hilton Hotel un- covered U.S.-made automatic sub-machine-guns, pistols and ammunition. Scotland Yard declined to speculate on the intended des- tination of the arms but were in touch with several Middle East- ern police forces to check the possibility they were intended tor Arab guerrillas. One theory was that the five sub-machine-guns, two a u t o- matic pistols, a revolver and 1.500 rounds of ammunition were a sample shipment in- tended to lead to larger supplies to the Middle East. Police seized the three men, handcuffed them and whisked them away minutes after they arrived at the hotel Monday night. More than 50 detectives, some armed, had stated out the hotel. Some posed as bellboys, other hotel staff or tourists. MOM and DAD!
