Two Hospitals Evacuated In Path Of Fire LOS ANGELES (UPI) - Surgical patients, children and elderly residents cf a sanatorium and patients at a veterans hospital were removed from the brush fire-threatened facilities today and a combat-ready missile site was guarded against advancing flames in the San Gabriel Mountains. A. 100-man military team moved their active missiles and warheads to underground bunkers as a precautionary measure at the Armv Nike base atop Los Pienetos peak. The flames swept south and west of the hilltoo s;te ?s squads of U. S. Forest Service firefighters ringed the area. The fire, driven by winds gusting to 40-50 miles an hour, had blackened nearly 1.000 acres. The temperature reached 85 degrees in the fire area by 7 a.m. and the humidity was 15 per cent. Smoke spread out over the San Fernando Valley and into the Los Angeles basin. Roofs of two homes on the foothill slopes above Sylmar were singed and fire spokesmen said other structures in the area could come into the path of the flames. Olive View Sanatorium, with a total of 59S patients, used buses and ambulances to move approximately 50 surgery patients, 55 children and 125 elderly inmates to other, hospi tals as the flames swept close to the structure that has been threatened manv times in past years by brush fires. "The" flames are coming right own behind us," said a spokesman at the Veteran's Administration hospital. He. said, buses that had been on standby at the facility since shortly-after dawn had begun, an orderly evacuation, "Itarting with wards closest to the fire.'" The veterans facility had a totalof 434 patients. U. S. Forest Service spokesman Don Porter said much of the area in the path of the advancing flames had been burned over four years ago and he hoped for containment as the flames licked through what was described as "light fuel" on the. tinder-dry slopes. The flames seared through Loop Canyon into Wilson Canyon in a westerly direction as 500 firefighters and their equipment from city, county and the U. S. Government fought for control or .containment. Evacuation of the hospital facilities had been planned for because of past threats. When the flames were several miles distant these plans were implemented.

PITTSBURGH (UPI) -Wcs-tinghouse Electric Corp., the secend largest elect:i-cal manufacturer, was hit today by its first major strike in 11 years. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBKW) went bn strike at 25 plants at midnight in a wage contract dispute, and after a slow start roving pickets began moving to other plants where" the union had no representation. IBEW pickets appeared at the company's nearby East Pittsburgh, Pa., plant-the largest of 72 Westinghouse plants across the nation-at 7 a.m., EST, and more than 7,000 non-IBEW employes stayed away from their jobs. Only supervisory workers were left at East Pittsburgh, vhere company makes turbines, transformers and generators. The strike appeared to have a minimal early 'effect on' the company's atomic, space and defense projects. Its three main plants in this group-at Baltimore, Md., Cheswick. Pa., and Sunnyvale. Calif. - remained open under contract extensions while negotiations for new contracts continued at the plant level. Best early estimates placed the number of strikers at about 3,400 of the 14.000 IBEW members employed at Westing-house plants. The number of other employes idled by the walkout was at least 8,000. Westinghouse employes a total of 75.000 workers a? all its plants. The \ company's Blairsvillp, Pa., plant, one of three main plants manufacturing electronic components for . space and defense work, remained open. But the plant at Youngwood. Pa.T was closed, with 1.100 IBEW members on strike and 700 others idled by the walkout. The situation at the third electronic components plant, at Elmira. N.Y., was not known immediately. The strike began at midnight and affected directly 25 plains in 20 states. Of this number, :\2 were repair shops covered by a national contract which expired at midnight and 3 were manufacturing plants. The extent of the strike depended on how many of the company's 72 plants throughout the country were picketed, and on whether members of other unions, which have signed new-wage contracts, would cr:>ss picket lines. TheBaltimore complex, which includes the Westine-house aerospace division making radar for the Gemini sp;>ce flights, remained open under n two-weeks extension. Similar extensions wer.' agreed to at the Sunnyvale plant, which manufactures propulsion equipment for ships, and the Cheswick plant, which makes nuclear fuels.
