SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — A gunbattle broke out today after a Soviet tourist fled while touring the area around the truce village of Panmunjom, the United Nations Command said. The conunand said two North Koreans and one South Korean were killed and an American soldier was wounded.
The official North Korean radio said three people were killed “on the North Korean side” in “the Soviet defector incident,” and
that one other person was seriously wounded.
A United Nations statement said the shooting started after North Koreans, following the Soviet tourist, crossed into the southern half of a small joint security area in the demilitarized zone that has divided the Korean peninsula since 1953.
The South Korean and American casualties were not identified, pending
notification of relatives. The American was reported to be hospitalized in stable condition.
Neither American nor South Korean officials would identify the Soviet, saying only that he was a member of a North Korean-sponsored tour of the 800-yard diameter joint security area that surrounds the truce village.
But Kyodo News Service in Japan identified him as Basil Mapuzak, 22. The state-
run (South) Korean Broadcasting System said he was a “Russian tourist guide.”
U.S. and South Korean troops took “defensive actions against an armed attack on the UNG i United Nations Command) side of the joint security area at Panmunjom,” the United Nations Command said in a statement.
“Between 20 and 30 security guards from the North Korean People's Army intruded
across the military demarcation line about 11:50 a.rn. <8:50 p.m. CST Thursday), firing at an apparent defector from a North Korean-sponsored tour of the joint security area,” it said.
The North Korean Radio Pyongyang, monitored in Tokyo, said the gunfight broke out when a Soviet tourist at the Panmunjom conference site “carelessly crossed the central border line, and a U.S. guardsman pulled at the tourist’s arm.”

Millions of Americans kept alive a tradition that started with a harvest feast more than 350 years ago by sharing dinner with loved ones and reaching out to the hungry in Thanksgiving celebrations that kicked off the winter holiday season.
From the nation's first family to its desperate poor, it was a day to belly up to turkey and all the trimmings. Tens of thousands of homeless, hungry or lonely people feasted on free meals and warmth offered in soup kitchens, restaurants and shelters.
| Miles of parades wound throughout the streets of several of the nation’s biggest cities on Thursday, a day before those same streets would taken over by the kickoff of the Christmas shopping madness. To herald the season, more than 100.000 people watched the lighting of a 90-foot Christmas tree in Atlanta
In New York City, at least 100.000 people bundled up against the cold to watch Raggedy Ann. Garfield the mischievous cat and the other helium-filled stars of the 58th annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The drought that dried up the main Comal Springs and threated canoe outfitters on the Guadalupe River last summer got some folks to thinking what if.’
New Braunfels Utilities manager Bob Sohn asked himself and others that question too, and now plans on coming up with some answ ers He has recruited Mayor Barbara Tieken, consultant Sam McKenzie and Utilities board member Robert Orr, who is also chairman of the Water Task Force for the Greater Austin-San Antonio Corridor Council. Together, they intend to formulate a ‘ plan of action” to address the future water needs of New Braunfels.
“We’re being bombarded with water studies right now. The Edwards has one. The Greater Austin-San Antonio) to Corridor has one San Antomo-Cuero has one. But the decisions in them will be on a regional basis with much input.
“We plan to use these studies as background, and come up with a plan of action just for New Braunfels,” Sohn said. “We want a dear understanding of what we should do. regardless of w hat else happens.”
The plan of action” I Sohn said he likes this phrase better than “study”) will include direction on these items: water rights, the
availability of ground water and surface water, system water use and reuse, water treatment needs and methods, soils investigation, and the effect of supply on the environment.
McKenzie has predicted the plan of action will take about nine months to complete. But Sohn said, “I don’t think it will take that long “The Edwards Task Force’s final report is due in February or March, and that will probably have an impact on w hat we d do., maybe.
“Personally. I’d like to see us begin in December, move ahead, so in three months, we’d have enough to give us direction. Then we could develop a definitive thing, and w lthin six months, have our plan, approve it and move on.” he added The task force Orr chairs is moving on. too. The group spent weeks

Spectators quiet on JFK anniversary
DALI JVS (AR) For the first time since 1963, observance of President John F Kennedy’s assassination was limited to a few specators who mingled through Dealey Plaza, snapped pictures — and wiped away an occasional tear.
There were no organized plans in Dallas Thursday to commemorate the fateful moment when Kennedy was shot fatally at the corner of Elm and Houston streets in the downtown area.
Instead, a steady procession moved through the JKK Memorial Plaza, reading the historical inscription, studying a map of the assassination site and taking pictures of the Texas School Book Depository, from where reputed assassin Lee Harvey Oswald fired the fatal shots on Nov. 22,1963.
A small U.S. flag had been placed in the shrubs in the front of the memorial. By 12:33 p.m. - approximately the time Kennedy was shot — the crowd had grown to about 75 to IOO people.
Officials of the Dallas County Democratic Party, which sponsored the Nov. 22 memorial ceremonies for the past few years, said they decided it would be more appropriate to shift the services to Kennedy’s birthday on May 29.
“That was the whole idea of last year’s 20th anniversary services, to have a major rememberance, then stop it,” said former Democratic County Chairman Bob Greenberg. “You don’t celebrate people’s deaths. You don’t celebrate Uncoln’s or Washington’s death. You celebrate their birthdays.”
Observers took advantage of a crisp autumn day highhghed by a cloudless sky to gaze at the memorial and the sixth-floor perch on the building where rifle fire snuffed out Kennedy’s life.
G.L. Perkins of Naples, Fla., who came to Dallas as part of a Thanksgiving trip, said he and his son decided to see the memorial

Kroesche said Davis no longer worked at Newk’s. “She was discharged after the jewelry was discovered missing,” he added.
