Lightning Kills Two, Injures 20 ST. PETERSBURG, F1 a. (AP) A bolt of lightning which flashed out of the darken- ing sky over a practice high school football game killed two players and injured 20 other youngsters, two critically. The bolt Monday centred on a huddle of the Gibbs high school offensive team, working on plays to be used in the season opener Sept. 111. Killed were tackle Robert Newton, 17, and quarterback Vincent Williams, 16. Four players remained in hos- pital, two of Chap- man and Alfonso Black, both 16 in critical condition. Sixteen other persons were treated for shocks and burns. Halfback Michael Washington, 16, said he was standing beside Chapman in the huddle when the lightning hit. "A big flash came in the mid- dle, and the shoulder pads looked like they were Williams said. "I saw Bruce stretched out on his back. I heard the coach tell- ing everyone to stay down. I was shaking on the inside." Coach Al Campbell said the bolt hit without warning. "I heard a loud clapping noise everybody was knocked coaches and ev- erybody on the Campbell jaid. Robert Jenkins, who was ref- weeing the game, said the noise brought "my Jaws together." Maj.-Gen. Han Yong-ok, sen- ior North Korean delegate, also told the 305th meeting of the Ko- rean .Military Armistice Com- mission that 'a U.S. troop-reduc- tion plan is "nothing but lip service and a cunning trick." The rejection of South Korean President Chung 'Hee Park's reunifcation plan came in a pre- pared statement. Han offered no counter-proposals. Park said Aug. 15 he would not oppose North Korea's par- ticipation in a United Nations debate on unification if the Communist regime would ac-. cept UN authority to deal with the issue. The South Korean leader also expressed readiness to begin a step-by-step removal of artifi- i cial barriers between the two countries if North Korea ren- ounced force as a political in- strument. U.S. Air Force Maj.-Gen. Felix M. Rogers, chief delegate for the UN command, rejected Han's troop withdrawal de- mand, saying: "This is no place for political propaganda discus- sions." The Nixon administration pro- poses to withdraw of its 62.POO troops from South Korea by June 30, 1971, while helping the Park regime carry out a military modernization pro- gram.

The cortege, bearing the in- s c r i p t i o n "RIP six-per-cent was entered by millrights in the annual Labor Day parade in Toronto. Con- structon unions, which have won big pay increases lately, dominated the parade. Other labor leaders across the country also hit at the sug- gested wage increase limit and accused the government of de- liberately creating unemploy- ment in the fight against infla- tion.
