NORTH VANCOUVER (CP) I A convicted drug trafficker .vhose wife lost both legs in an nderworld bombing in 1971, Mesday had his legs shattered y a shotgun blast. RCMP said they believe a man who stepped out of the hadows and shot Dallas Boyd, 41, at point-blank range in the underground parking lot of an apartment block was a hired unman. Boyd, they said, was the ap- >arent intended victim of a car jnmblng at Boyd's home Feb. 11, 1971. Instead, his wife Jeanette was the one who started up the family car that day, touching off a dynamite bomb taped un- der the hood. Both her legs were amputated. Boyd was not i the car. Police said after Boyd had undergone extensive surgery that he likely would keep his legs, but had suffered "extreme damage to both knees." Boyd has admitted con viclions for drug trafficking drug possession and car theft dating back to 195S. But he says he has had no contact with the underworld since 1938. His condition Tuesday night was listed as satisfactory. Boyd and liis wife have been separated for several months, police said. Hundreds of planes batter N.

Linda, Lyle, Pat- TORONTO (CP> General George Grobicki, 83, who sur- vived the Russian Katvn mas- sacre of officers during the Second World War, died here. General Grobicki commanded a cavalry brigade in Poland in 1939 and was wounded and taken to Russia. His train car with a few other wounded offi- cers aboard was pushed to a side track while other officers taken prisoner were sent to their deaths at Katryn. I 1942, after Polish prisoners were released, he served the Polish army in Italy and after the war was made Polish mili- tary attache in Formosa. Later, he travelled to England and then to Canada, where he be- came a citizen. He is survived by his wife Anna Harajewicz and a son Eleksander, a journalist now living in Poland. the U.S. command announced today. North Vietnam reported it suffered heavy civilian casu- alties and extensive damage in the raids Tuesday and claimed they ranged from the demili- tarized zone northward to the Chinese border. A broadcast'by Radio Hanoi said there were several hun- dred civilian casualties, that bombs hit two schools and that many homes were destroyed or damaged. A communique from the U.S. command said more than 300 tactical strikes were carried out across North Vietnam on Tuesday, and many of them were both to the south and north of Hanoi. Other main tar- gets included military barracks and supply depots, the com- mand said. Air force pilots from two bases in Thailand dropped both laser-guided and conventional bombs onto the Yen Bai air base, 80 miles northwest of Hanoi and 70 miles below the Chinese border. L An analysis By ANTHONY LEWIS New York Times Service NEW YORK By the end of this week President Nixon will have presided over the Vietnam wsr for longer than it took the United States to fight and win :he Second World War. From Pearl Harbor to Japan's sur- render it was three years, eight months and one week. This is, therefore, an approp- riate time to look at the rec- ord. What have been the costs and the achievements of the Nixon policy in Vietnam over the last three years, eight months and one week? The direct cost in American lives Is men killed ill action and "nonhostile as the Pentagon calls jthem Americans killed in ndochina by such things as aircraft failure, not enemy ac- ion. Another men have >een wounded seriously enough o be hospitalized. Asian military casualties are less certain. South Vietnam had listed more than of its own soldiers killed during the Nixon years, and wound- ed, it claims more than communist troops killed and 600, 00 wounded. Civilian victims are much more numerous, although again precision is not possible. A senate subcommittee has made these estimates for the last three and one-half years: South Vietnamese refu- gees; 2 million Cambodians were also made refugees. There are no reliable figures for North Vietnamese civilian victims. From President Nixon's In- augural through the month of August, 1972, American planes dropped around tons ot bombs on North and South Viet- nam, Laos and Cambodia. The figure is currently running clOBe ;o tons a month. According to cautious esti- mates by professors Arthur H. Westing and E. W. Pfeiffer, the bombs dropped during the Nixon administration have left approxi- mately craters in In- dochina. They have displaced 750-million cubic yards of earth. Budget figures put the cost of the Vietnam war to the United States since January, 1969, 60 billion. But that does not In- clude much of the cost of out- side bases serving the war, or of aid to South Vietnam and Cambodia. The true cost ot carrying on the war has prob- ably exceeded billion.

Israel blamed for scare campaign BEIRUT (AP) Syria and Egypt have suggested Israel was behind the series of letter bombs mailed to its embassies abroad. A spokesman the Syrian- backed Arab commando group Al Saika was quoted in Dam- ascus as saying the large num- ber of bombs intercepted before they reached their destination proved the point. He said Israel intended to use Ihe letter bombs to discredit the Arabs abroad and provide it with excuses to mount ag- gression against Arab states. In Cairo, the newspaper Al Gumhouria quoted unidentified commando sources as denying tho guerrillas sent the letter bombs, and blaming Israel. Al Ahram also accused the Israelis of mounting the bomb attacks and a scare campaign in Europe. Armored limousine set afire PHNOM PENH (AP) A powerful terrorist bomb set ablaze the armored limousine carrying the ranking U.S. diplo- mat in Cambodia to work to- day, but the envoy escaped un- hurt, authorities reported. Police at first reported two Motorcycle policemen escorting the limousine and a civilian were killed in the blast and four Cambodians wounled. But U.S. embassy sources said later only one policeman was killed and that the other was criti- cally injured. They said doctors offered little hope of saving him. Thomas Enders, 40, the U.S. charge d'affaires, emerged un- scathed from the battered wreckage of the car. He was on his way to the American em- bassy, where he is in charge while Ambassador Emory C. Swank is on home leave in the United Stales. Swank escaped an assassina- tion attempt Sept. 7, 1971. A riderless bicycle bearing a 13- pound plastic bomb concealed among loaves of French bread was sent careering into his lim- ousine. The bomb failed to ex- plode and the bicycle fell harm- lessly to the street. Straiigler strikes again WATERLOO, Ont.

(AP) A visitor from London who was charged in taxi fare from New York's Ken- nedy Airport to Woodbrirlge, a distance of about 30 miles, says entertainer Frank Si- natra is sending her a cheque for the fare. Margaret Morgan, 71, said Tuesday she received a tele- phone call from William Bar- ron of Jim Mahoney and As- sociates of New York, public relations counsel for Sinatra, advising her of the gift. She said Barren explained that Sinatra me be- causo everyone treated him so well when he visited Eng- land, he felt this was the least he could do." Authorities are seeking the cobby who overcharged Mrs. Morgan. Kennedy officials said the fare should not be more than Work-to-rule plaii would cripple school CALGARY (CP) The facul- ty pssorialion at Mount Royal Community College said here that members will work-to-rule until a new contract is signed or until a strike or lockout takes place.
