(AP) Police report no major leads in their search for the men who commandeered an armored truck and stole approximately in cash. The robbers escaped with another in cheques but a state police spokesman said Sunday he believes the cheques will be worthless to the holdup men. The robbers left approxi- mately in cash and a reported million in non- negotiable cheques in the truck when they fled following the Saturday night holdup. Three masked men in of- ficial looking, blue uniforms confronted two truck guards as they picked up money at a supermarket near the Rhode Island border, police said. The heavily-armed men handcuffed the guards and put them in the International Armored Car Service truck. Two of the men took the truck while the other drove a car, They met at a meeting point a mile away where they were probably picked up by a fourth man, police said. No shots were fired in the holdup and the two guards were not harmed. "It was definitely a profes- sional a police spokesman said. He said the stolen money was insured with Lloyd's.

Hankinson. you all, Mrs. Kathleen Lenagh 8786 MOSCOW (AP) Yuri Panchenko, a Soviet Walter Mitty with a line of blarney as long as his police record, has gone to jail another five years for acting out his fantasies, Pravda said Sunday. The 56-year-old con artist was known to sports officials from Omsk to Ashkhabad as a track and field referee with a national rating and a forged certificate to prove it. the Communist party newspaper said. Using other phoney documents, a glib tongue and a fertile brain, Panchenko also passed himself off as a wartime fighter pilot ace and a chess whiz who routinely took on several opponents at a time. Pravda, devoting almost a quarter-page to Panchenko's undoing, said his last flight of fancy was from Moscow to Krasnodar, the city in southern Russia where he was unmasked and sentenced by a people's court to five years for swindling. GOT FREE SEAT It said Panchenko got first choice of seats on the plane by showing the stewardess a forged document saying he was a pilot instructor for Aeroflot, the state airline. On the way to Krasnodar, he regaled his fellow passengers with fictitious war stories about flying 267 combat missions and shooting down 17 german planes, Pravda said. It added that he alluded to Soviet cosmonauts he knew from his days as a hot test pilot after the war. At Krasnodar's Dynamo stadium, Panchenko's tall, athletic figure was familiar to local sports officials, and it was announced he would present the medals to top finishers in a marathon race. The announcer described him as a retired air force colonel who won the medal "hero of the Soviet Union" for his wartime exploits, as a Scout numbers dwindle TORONTO (CP) A modernization program instituted by Canadian Boy Scout leaders in 1968 may be partly responsible for a staggering loss of membership in Scouting ranks, an internal Scouting report says. The report, compiled by eight local scout leaders, showed that nationally in 1967 there were Scouts and Venturers. By December, 1972, the figure had dropped to and still is dropping. In the Toronto region, there was a loss of boys, "despite the tremendous growth of new citizens per year in metropolitan the report says. One strong recommendation the report makes is that camping be strongly emphasized, contrary to the "with it" program of today that has "a small boy in short pants helping an old lady across the street who doesn't want to go." Going on the road 4it's a disease ya see9 By WAYNE SLATER PARKERSBURG, W. Va. (AP) Connecticut Slim is coming in off the road. He has lived on every major skid row, drunk every minor brand of wine and travelled across four decades and perhaps a million miles. But Connecticut Slim, one of the last of the authentic American hoboes, is about to retire. "I ain't gonna travel much said Slim, sitting over a cup of black coffee in the Greyhound bus station. "I'm gonna stay here in this area, and only go where I have a definite home to go to or a definite object. I'm not gonna just go running around anymore." Few of the old-timers are still on the road, said 62 year old Slim, whose real name is Tim Moyland. There have been too many changes since the Depression, when an estimated two million drifters were riding the rails. "There's no companionship on the road any more, no he said. "You used to stop in a jungle and maybe you'd meet 20 guys and talk over how things are and where you've been. There was a grapevine of information and if you had a good memory you could find out where to go anywhere in the United States." DID ODD JOBS Cots were 10 cents a night in Memphis in those days, and folks along the tracks were willing to trade a hot meal for a little honest work. But urban renewal has cleared away most of the hobo boarding houses and everybody has become suspicious of the blue denim drifter. During his 44 years of rambling. Slim has taken time out to work as a bartender, dub steward, singing waiter, carnival barker and salesman of various dubious products including sticks of naphthalene and flea powder guaranteed to kill every flea and moth in your house. As a pickpocket's accomplice in the 1990s, he learned the finer points of "picking the peach pickers." Slim and a friend would enter a bar and the friend would suddenly burst into a lively Yiddish song and begin danding wildly, all the while relieving the produce workers of their extra cash. "Folks were so overwhelmed they didn't notice he was pickin' their said Slim. "I was his standby man. When be made a hit, he'd nm by and slip me the staff. We really made a team." AVOIDS MISSIONS His years on the road have cost him a borne, his marriage and the friendship of his children. Slim has only seen one of his grandchildren, and says he's not certain how many he has. Slim is living in a boarding house here and collecting welfare benefits which he hopes will keep him out of the missions. "I know lots of guys that go to Los Angeles and stay in them he said. "They stay there all winter, eating that old mission .soup, drinking wine, come out skinnier than a rail and half dead and brainwashed from John In the years ahead, there will be trips to see some of the guys in Ohio and Illinois, but there will be none of the unplanned, uninhibited jour- neys of the earlier years. And that, to a hobo, is tantamount to retirement. "I think I would have been dead had I not gone on the said Connecticut Slim. "I couldn't have done it any differently, because I have done it any differently, because I have that Gov't may probe rail pensions EDMONTON (CP) Minister John Munro said Monday he is considering an inquiry into railways workers' pensions so that negotiators will be in possession of "all the facts" in the next set of rail contract talks. The minister also repeated in a speech to the Edmonton council of railway unions previous calls for new methods of collective bargaining, such as voluntary arbitration and a com- bination of mediation and arbitration. He said these could help eliminate lengthy negotiations and railway strikes. Gallup poll shows Nixon image better PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) The latest Gallup poll shows public support of President Nixon's performance rose slightly at the beginning of February after falling to a low of 26 per cent in late January. The new poll showed 28 per cent of those surveyed approved of Nixon's handling of his job. In the same survey, the per- centage of the public that dis- approves of the president's conduct in office decreased five points to 59 per cent, the lowest disapproval figure in more than two months. The remaining 13 per cent of the adults surveyed from Feb. 1 to Feb. 4 offered no opinion. The latest survey of the president's performance was conducted two weeks after the previous one in which 26 per cent approved of the president's handling of his job. Mr. Munro said a pension study would cover all details of cost and funding. Pension matters, he said, are often confusing to all but a small group of experts. During the last set of contract talks, the cost of agreed pension plan changes was a major issue as union negotiators said the company was over-estimating the cost of improvements. Mr. Munro appointed a spe- cial commissioner, John Deutsch, a former chairman of the Economic Council of Canada, to examine the cost of pension changes. Mr. Deutsch found in favor of the companies. The minister said, in a speech text released before delivery, that the changes in the railway pension plan now puts it among the best in Canada. "In some aspects, it sur- passes the pension plan of the public service of he added. Mr. Munro said recommen- dations and findings of an inquiry could be ready when negotiations reopen for a new contract in Nov- ember. The minister rejected com- pulsory arbitration as a method of resolving collective bargaining disputes but said the railway workers and the companies should take steps to try out new methods such as voluntary arbitration. "I will place the complete resources and expertise of my department at their he said. Mr. Munro said although voluntary arbitration has never been tried before in railway negotiations that the time to experiment was now. A mediation-arbitration combination could also be tried, he said. Under that method a skilled mediator would first try to have as many points resolved through agreement as possible and remaining issues would be thrown arbitration. "merited test pilot of the U.S.S.R." and "master of sport." During refereeing excursions that took him all over the Soviet Union, Pravda said Panchenko collected perdiem expenses from various sports organizations and, by padding his expense accounts, had amassed a tidy sum of The paper said everything went well on the Krasnodar trip until Panchenko got drunk and rowdy at a local hotel and was hauled into a militia station. The police didn't accept his claims and put out queries to national police bodies. Pravda said it turned out Panchenko was a master forger who already had served a total of 22 years in prisons and labor camps for impersonation and swindling. It said he sat out most of the war in prison for impersonating an officer. use denied WEST VANCOUVER, B.C. (CP) West Vancouver Police Chief M. 8. Macbrayne Sunday refuted a statement by the West Vancouver Police Association that reserve policemen are being used instead of regular officers. "This is very he said. "Reserve officers have never been used in lieu of regular force members." Chief Macbrayne said that many times he has had to call in reserve officers when regular force members refused to do special duty. "The reservists have been used in extraordinary traffic tieup situations and during salmon derbies, but otherwise they act completely on their own on practical work and training. They are a group dedicated to assist the community and it is most unfair to involve them in this he said.
