Or so the experts said. But with less than a week to go before election day, Ameri- youth seem far from being he decisive force, as the ex- perts believed when the voting age was reduced to IB from 21 a year ago. Instead they seem to be lin- ng up almost as their elders are in making a choice for iresident-much to the dismay if George McGovern. One recent poll had the presi- dent leading McGovern by 50 to 4G per- cent among youth in general and a later survey showed McGovern to be ahead of Nixon by 49 to 47 per cent among students, the group the Democratic standard-bearer once claimed belonged to him. Said one political observer: 'This campaign is going to be decided by the group that usu- ally decides elections in the United States-lhe unblack, the unpoor, the unyoung." The political scenario of the 1972 election campaign had started with an army of young volunteers massing to help McGovern defeat organization Democrats in the party's ar- duous primary battles. It he- came an article of faith in the McGovern camp that the energy of his young activists would extend to the youth vote as a whole and that he could SANTIAGO (Rculer) Chile's Marxist President Sal- vador AUende has tried to apease both right and left by bringing labor unionists and .military men into his govern- ment in a major cabinet shuffle. The biggest surprises in Thursday night's shake-up, which brought eight changes and a promise of three more in the 15-member cabinet, were the appointments of the army commander-in-chief as interior minister and a Communist un- ion leader as labor minister. It was the first time in Chile's history that the key in- terior post had been given to a member of the armed forces, Charred bodies found VIENTIANE, Laos (CP-AP) The charred bodies of two white women were found Thursday in smouldering ruins In the town of Kengkok, in southern Laos, and a U.S. em- bassy spokesman said it was believed they were the bodies of two missing American mis- sionaries, Evelyn Anderson, 25, of Quincy, Mich., and Beatrice Kosin, 35, of Fort Washakie, Wyo. Both were members of the Swiss Brethren. They were cap- tured last week, along with Lloyd Oppel, 20, a Canadian from Courtenay, B.C., and Samuel Mattix, 19, of Centralia, Wash., when pro-Communist Pathet Lao forces seized the town 205 miles southeast of Vientiane. Oppel and Mattix are still missing. Oppcl's father, Magnus, said In Courtenay Friday that nego- tiations are going on for the re- lease of his son and Mattix. Magnus Oppel said he had no Irfea what the Pathet Lao is de- manding for the release of the two missionaries or the location of the village where the bar- gaining is being conducted. Two other Americans, a Swiss and seven Filipinos work- ing in the small Operation Brotherhood hospital in Keng- kok, escaped. and the most important re- structuring of the left-wing Popular Unity coalition govern- ment since AUende took office two years ago today.

T. A. Edwards, chairman of the Edmonton Police Commis- sion, said Thursday that un- necessary exposure to potential- ly-violent situations is of serious concern and it is in this light that training programs will be reviewed. Alex Slusarenko, 74 was kill- ed Sunday when two patrolmen forced their way into an aprt- ment after police responded to a complaint that a man was firing a shotgun into a parking lot across the street. Constable Larry Letawsky was wound- ed by a shotgun blast. "We are concerned that con- stables be trained about person- al safety precautions and that they should not be exposed to situations like this unless it is absolutely M r. Edwards said.

No freeze on salaries EDMONTON (CP) Public Works Minister Winrton Back- us said Wednesday tradesmen such as electricians and niumb- ers employed by various government departments are being reclassified as mainte- nance staff. He said the move "would en tail a downgrading of salaries in certain but this would be r'nne by not granting pay increases in some con- tracts coming up for renewal.

(CP Wircpliolo) Weather expert acquitted in ice floe death case ALEXANDRIA, Va. CAP) Mario Jaime Escamilla of Sanla Barbara, was ac- quitted yesterday at his second trial on a charge of involuntary manslaughter in the 1970 shoot- ing death of a fellow weather researcher on an Arctic ice floe. Excamilla, 35, was convicted in 1971 in the snooting death of flennie E. I.ightsy, 42, the leader of a 19-member govern- ment weather research team on tlie ice island known as T-3. He was sentenced to three years in prison. But a U.S. court ordered a new trial last summer on grounds that the judge had im- properly instructed the jury as to the difference between volun- tary and involuntary man- slaughter and had refused to al- low more than one character to testify on Escamil- la's behalf. The trial alkacted consider- able attention because of the the ice floe which was in the open sea.

Testimony during the trial said Lightsy and Escamilla had been arguing about some home- made raisin wine that Lightsy wanted to give to an Eskimo.
