S. returnees of previous Bandit Kidnaps, Robs St. Paul Bar Owner of Victim Left Tied Up in Como Park ST. PAUL Ufi A hunt was on for a gunman-kid- naper who robbed a St. Paul tavern owner of Friday and left him tied hand and foot in Como Park. Earl J. Monpettit, 26, told police he had driven to a downtown bank to get the money for cashing checks over the weekend at the Bel-Mont Club on University av- enue. Coming out of the bank, the victim said he found two men push- ing his car which had been double parked. They said it was in their way. Monpettit got into the mach- ine. Before he could drive away, a man jumped into the back seat, pressed a pistol against the back of his neck and ordered him to "keep driving." When he got to the park, the gunman ordered Monpettit out of the car and told him to lie down in some weeds. After tying the bar owner's hands behind him and lacing his ankles together, the man fled. Monpettit managed to free his feet and hailed a passing motorist. It happened to be Warren Reinke, an off-duty policeman who drove the victim to headquarters.

U.S. Speeds Aid ToWesternAllies Kyes Urges U.S. Strategy Based On Air Power WASHINGTON De- fense Secretary Kyes called Friday for a national strategy based on air power. He said it should be somewhere between the idea of "almost .fanatical" backers of one sort of preparedness or another, and those of "the pacifist who would do nothing." "Air power is the keystone make no mistake about Kyes'delcared. He added that air power would be basic in the new look at the nation's present mili- tary strength and future needs be- ing conducted by the new Joint Chiefs of Staff on orders from Pres- ident Eisenhower. The No. 2 civilian in the Defense Department addressed the A i r Force Association. The organization in its meeting here already has gone on record with strong crili- i cisms of administration ordered cuts in Air Force spending. It is considering a resolution callling for a civilian commission to review national strategy and suggesting doubt of the objectivity of the joint chiefs study. Kyes said any study of the na- tion's security must be conducted realistically without "emo- tion, promotion or indifference." He said the necessity for such an approach was underlined by the announcement of the first Russian hydrogen explosion. The secretary cautioned against any short-term approach to the threat against the United States. "If we prepare only for the short dash, for a D-day, we are likely to 'have prepared for the wrong kind of Kyes said.

By TOM MASTERSON RABAT, Morocco Wl White- robed tribal chiefs and Moslem re- ligious leaders gathered in this sul- len North African capital city today to greet Morocco's new French- backed ruler, Moulay Mohammed Ben Arafa. The 64-year-old candidate for the hill country Berbers was pro- claimed Sultan yesterday after the French dethroned his cousin, form- er Sultan Sidi Mohammed Ben Youssef, and sent him into exile on Corsica. French officials would not say whether the new Sultan would pa- rade through the streets to the im- perial palace after his special train gets in from Marrakech. It still was feared the bold de- cision to switch rulers might bring rioting among followers of the rival chiefs. Strong French Army Strong French army and police, forces held Rabat under tight mili- tary control. A curfew clamped on the city following Thursday's oust- er of Ben Youssef has been lifted, however. The Arab population remained quiet but glum, if in mourning, although it 'was the period of the big religious feast Aid el Kebir and ordinarily would have been a time of rejoicing. The loudest outcry so far against the forced exiling of the nationalist- minded Sultan, Morocco's spiritual leader and nominal ruler for 25 years, came from .the Arab-Asian bloc in the United Nations. The 16- nation group decided yesterday in New York to ask for an urgent ses-, _. sion of the U. N.

The short flight back to Tehran was in sharp contrast to the Shah's hurried flight from the city only last Sunday. Iraqi Crown Prince Abdul Ilah and high officials of the Baghdad government ceremonious- ly bade him farewell. A squadron of Iraqi fighter planes flew an honor escort for the twin-engined Beechcraft plane, pi- loted by the Shah's personal pilot, as far as the Iranian border. Tehran appeared bright and shin- ing as the Shah landed, with fresh coats of whitewash covering the accumulation of old political slo- gans on walls throughout the city. Green, white and red Iranian flags blossomed throughout his capital to greet him. Wooden triumphal arches bear- ing signs spelling out "Welcome to Our Shah" and "Long Live the Shah-in-Shah" (emperor of emper- ors) spanned roads leading from Tehran's airport to the heart of the city. Beneath the decorations, how- ever, the steel hand of martial law still gripped the city. Troops and police of Premier Faslollah ZahefJi, backed by scores of heavy tanks, patrolled the streets for any hint of trouble from pro Mossadegh forces. Zahedi's government Friday night announced the arrest of three more Mossadegh henchmen as Shah Mohammed Reza Pahleyi told .interviewers in Baghdad his first' act on returning home would be to see that justice is done to all traitors.

Wl (The Dutchman) Grunewald, one- time Washington mystery man who was found in a gas filled room with a woman friend, was released in his own custody Friday night, police announced today. Grunewald had been charged with disorderly conduct Friday aft- er he and the woman, Mrs. Ann Anderson, 46, were found overcome by gas in an apartment. Police said a pot of coffee on the stove may have boiled over, putting out the fire and allowing gas to es- cape. The pair had been taken to Jer- sey City Medical Center to recover, and it was thought that Grunewald and Mrs. Anderson would remain there until their expected arraign- ment on the disorderly charge Mon- day. However, Magistrate Michael F. Riley released both in their own recognizance and set a hearing for Aug. 31 on the charge, a police spokesman confirmed today. The 63-year-old Grunewald was prominently mentioned in the con- gressional probe of "influence ped- and he was reluctant to testify about his activities. He was fined and given a suspended 90-day jail sentence for contempt of Congress, and put on probation for a year. Probation requirements were that Grunewald i be honest, temperate and live a I clean life. If probation is found to be violated, Grunewald could be required to serve the 90-day jaU sentence. ;
