Sought For Two Mouths FBI Capture Angela Davis NEW YORK (AP) Angela Davis, the black militant philos- ophy instructor, has been ar- rested by the FBI at a motel after being sought for nearly two months on murder and kid- napping charges in a California courthouse shooting. Miss Davis, 26, a former fac- ulty member of the University of California at Los Angeles, is accused of purchasing the guns used in the courtroom shooting- escape that took the lives of the judge and three others in San Raphael, Calif., Aug. 7. Arrested with Miss Davis at the Howard Johnson Motor Lodge in midtown Manhattan Tuesday night was David Ru- dolph Poindexter Jr., 36, also black, who was charged with harboring a fugitive. They were to be arraigned today. Miss Davis, .whose' public avowal of communism created an academic freedom contro- versy at UCLA, was placed on the FBI's 10 most-wanted list after being charged in connec- tion with the California shoot- ing. In Miami Beac'i, Attorney- General John Mitchell said Tuesday night that a chance sighting of Miss Davis in south Florida led to her capture. A young black pilot who asked not to be identified told an Asso- ciated Press reporter in Miami Beach that preparations had been made there to fly Miss Davis to Cuba from a deserted Miami airstrip. The plan apparently fell through when a charter boat captain told the FBI that a black woman accompanied by two men tried to force him at gunpoint to take them from Miami Beach to Bimmini in the Bahamas. The captain identified the woman from photographs as Miss Davis, but officials later determined that the report was false. The captain's story was given widespread1 local public- ity, .however. of the publicity from the false tip, somebody spotted her and the FBI picked up her a federal official said. Miss Davis, a native of Bir- mingham, Ala., gained public notice when she took a position as an acting assistant professor of philosophy at UCLA. An academically brilliant pro- tege of Marxist philosopher Her- bert Marcuse, she created a fu- rore when, in response to a question from the university chancellor about her political activities, she said she was a Communist. During the summer she be- came involved in the cause of the so-called Soledad Brothers black convicts awaiting trial on charges of murdering a Soledad Prison guard Jan. 16. One of the three, George Jackson, 28, is the brother ol Jonathan Jackson who brought the weapons into the San Rafael courtroom of Superior Court Judge Harold J. Haley where three other San Quentin con- victs were on trial Aug. 7. Haley, young Jackson, and two of the convicts, William Christmas and James McClain, were killed when the fugitives attempted to flee in a rented van. Police traced all four of the guns used in the break to Miss Davis and said she had pur- chased them. SUPER SAVINGS AT THRIFTWAY DRUGS WILKINSON RAZOR BLADES Reg. 75c pkg.

Speaking during debate on .the throne speech Tuesday, Mr. Benson said, however, that al- though unemployment is im- proving it will be a difficult whi- ter. Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield said later at a news conference the government had accepted high unemployment and this was inexcusable- John Burton East) said in the Commons Mr. Benson's speech was a "recita- tion of the failures of govern- ment policy." Manhunt Mounts For RCMP Slayer PRINCE ALBERT (CP) RCMP continued a six-day-old manhunt today as the bodies of two of their murdered men were taken to Regina for burial. The search is for Stanley Wilfred Robertson, 40, of the MacDowall, Sask., area, charged with two counts of capi- tal murder in the shooting deaths last Friday of Sgt. R. J. Schrader, 41, and Constable D. B. Anson, 30. About 60 policemen, some called in from detachments in Regina, Saskatoon, Swift Cur- rent, North Battlefordand Yorkton, were combing rugged country around MacDowall, about 25 miles south of here. The, area contains muskeg and heavily-wooded bog. Robertson, a farmer, is de- scribed as an excellent bush- man and an expert marksman. RCMP said they believe he is warmly dressed and is carrying a .22-calibre rifle. The two officers were shot when they went to investigate reports of a family dispute on a MacDowall area farm. Their cruiser' and handguns w taken. Later the car and one handgun were recovered. Separate funeral services were held Tuesday night here for the slain men. Sgt. Schrader Was a.22-year veteran of the Weapons Stolen In Armory Raid NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. (CP) An unknown quantity of sub-machineguns and military FN rifle breech blocks were sto- len between Monday and Tues- day in a raid on a militia arm- ory, police said. KCMP were called to the ar- mory Tuesday morning and en- forced strict security precau- tions immediately. An inventory was still being taken late at night to determine exactly what was stolen. Police said the haul did not include any ammunition. An army spokesman said other weapons in the armory, home of the 6th Field Squadron of the Royal Canadian Engi- neers, were removed to "a more secure place." RCMP and military police in- vestigating the theft refused to say how the thieves entered the building. The weapon storage rooms are .built of concrete, without windows, and the heavy rteet metal doors have double locks. An army spokesman said the thieves apparently knew what they were looking for and there was little ransacking of the building. "The breech blocks are use- less without FN rifles to fit said Major C. K. Watt of the Vancouver district militia headquarters. "They wouldn't fit any commercially made hunting rifle that I am aware of. "We don't know why these were taken. But we do know that whoever broke in was very efficient." The armory is used during evening and weekends. It is looked after by a caretaker dur- ing the day but is vacant when the caretaker goes home for the night.

Island Hit By Typhoon MANILA (AP) A typhoon with 115-mile-an-hour winds swept over the Philippines today, leaving 25 dead, about 40 missing and nearly home- less. There were no damage or cas ualty reports from many areas because the high winds and heavy rains smashed communi- cation lines. The typhoon lashed a 400-mile stretch of the island nation. It cut into the central Philippines Tuesday, then angled today across Luzon Island on which Manila is located and out into the South China S'ea. The Red Cross said first ac- counts spotted Albany province of southern Luzon as the worst hit. Nine persons died and 38 were missing in Tiwi. The Philippines the town of navy con- firmed that 13 persons died and two were missing when the storm capsized their boat in the southern Philippines. Navy rescuers were sailing for Mindoro Island in the cen- tral Philippines after receiving a distress signal from an ocean-going ship bound for Hong Kong. The ship, the Coffin Rose, was reported aground and the crew prepared to abandon her. Man Sentenced To Four Years GRANDE PRAIRIE (CP) Robert Harold Reed, 34, of Val- halla Centre was sentenced to four years for manslaughter. Reed originally was charged with non-capital murder in the July 1 shooting death of Ra- chael Mam'choose. The majority Liberal govern- ment survived an NPP non-con- fidence motion 140 to 20 at the conclusion of the day's sitting. Only the Creditistes voted with the NDP; the Conserva- tives supported the government. Standing in the 264-seat Com- mons: Liberal 152, Conserva- tives 72, NDP 23, Creditiste 13, Independent 1, vacant 3. SAYS THERE'S THREAT The motion said that the gov- ernment has failed to deal effec- tively with the "threat to Cana- dian independence created by the growing foreign ownership of our economy." The govern- ment had also failed to reduce unemployment and to introduce a guaranteed income "below which no Canadian family will be allowed to fall." The Conservatives also have moved a non-confidence motion but it will ha voted on later in the eight-day throne debatej which continues today. SEES HARD WINTER Mr. Benson acknowledged that though employment is im- proving the winter will be hard. "We shall need a substantial an- nual rate of real growth before any marked improvement in the unemployment rate will be forthcoming." He said the rate of growth will probably reduce unemploy- ment significantly over the next year The government, plans to in- troduce a supplementary spend- ing estimate in the Commons to cover the additional million to ease unemployment, he said. The manpower department would get one third of the amount for manpower training programs, about million would go to capital projects re- gions where unemployment is high and million would be givfin to various federal depart- ments for operations and main- tenance tasks earlier postponed. The finance minister said budgetary revenues were down ?50 million and expenditures up million, leading to a pro- jected deficit of million tin's year instead of the original esti- mate of a million surplus. Extra measures taken by the government since June had added million to budgetary expenditures. This increase in spending was stimulating the economy. WINNING FIGHT Mr. Benson said that the gov- ernment has been "rewarded in our struggle against inflation." The consumers price index, ex- cluding food, increased at an annual rate of 3.2 per cent this year, down from about five per cent through most of 1969. Canadian exports were show- ing strength with a growth of nine per cent in the first half of 1970 compared with seven per cent in the last half of 1969. The finance minister said that he could not see any evidence of a slowing down in the rate of increase in wages. "I believe that the pressures hi the economy emanating from this fact are the most important single obstacle to the resump- tion of the faster rates of growth with high employment and steady prices which we all want." Mr. Stanfield said outside the House immediate steps such as a winter works program should be taken to ease unemployment. Jordan Returns To Civilian Rule The way was paved today for a return to civilian rule in Jordan after an agreement signed by King Hus- sein and guerrilla leader Yasser Arafat. The relations between Jordanian au- thorities and the Palestine re- sistance the king to order the release of about guerrillas captured during bloody clashes last month. [t was the appointment of a military government by King Hussein early in September that sparked bitter fighting between the king's troops and the guer- rillas. Under the agreement signed Tuesday night, the carrying of arms by guerrillas in cities is banned other than in excep- tional circumstances. Military displays and exercises with live ammunition in cities also are banned. But the militia force of part- time commandos will be al- lowed to keep their arms. After last month's fighting between government forces and com- mandos it was reported that the government wanted the militia member to hand over their nrinc tn m-ffant7tiHnnc rtt which they are members. The agreement was also signed by Tunisian Premier Bahi Ladgham as chairman of the follow-up committee formed by Arab heads of state to work out details of a permanent set- tlement between the Jordanian government and the guerrillas. 53 Are Killed At Crossing SEOUL (Eeuters) Fifty-two teen-age boys and a driver were killed today when a bus with 76 students aboard collided with a passenger train about 50 miles south of Seoul, the South Korean capital. The 24 surviving students were rescued but were seriously injured, police said. The boys, third-year students at a Seoul school, were return- ing home after a day-long school excursion.

ROBERT THOMPSON quit bargaining Tory MP Urges End To Deals With Kidnappers OTTAWA (CP) Robert Thompson Deer) called upon the government Tuesday to quit bargaining with the terrorist kidnappers of Brit- ish diplomat James Richard Cross and Quebec Labor Minis- ter Pierre Laporte and to take "measures of appropriate se- verity" to restore the rule of law. Mr. Thompson was speaking in the Commons on the second day of debate on last Thurs- day's speech from the throne opening the third session of Canada's 28th Parliament.

Testifying in Su- preme Court, Air. Fraser said he specialized in "senior com- mercial transactions" and November, when he alleges re- marks made to the press by tin mayor defamed him, "my posi- tion at city hall has been re- duced substantially." He also said his position with several city officials, no nutter how well he knew them, "would be jeopardized, if not des- troyed." Mr. Fraser brought the charge several months ago after he said he was defamed while representing a real estate developer in negotiations with city council. His lawyer, J. H. Layeraft, [old Mr. Justice Lieberman would present evidence cover- ing events of last October and November, and b a c kground from an earlier period to sup- port Mr. Fraser's contention.

Mr. Fraser was counsel for Carma Devel- opers Ltd. and was seeking ap- proval from city council for plans to build the centre. Top FBI Official Warns Of Political Kidnappings WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) The No. 2 man in the Federal Bureau of Investigation says the radical Weatherman and other "anarchistic groups" may soon stage a wave of political kidnap- pings in a eampaip to over- throw the United States govern- ment. William C. Sullivan, assistant to FBI director J. Edgar Hoo- ver, said the kidnappings could involve U.S. officials making campaign swings for the fall election or foreign heads of state attending ii? 25th anniver- sary of the United Nations in New York City later this month. Sullivan's remarks were con- tained in the prepared text of a speech he gave at the 1970 United Press International edi- tors' and publishers' confer- ence. He omitted the portion about the alleged kidnap plot in delivering the speech Monday. No reason was given. Weatherman, a militant un- derground offshoot of the Stu- dents, for a Democratic Society, has taken credit for at least three of a rash of terror bomb- Ings in different parts of U.S. which began Oct. 5.
