THE UNITED MINE WORKERS offered a $50,000 reward
yesterday in the slaying of union official Joseph A. Yablonski.
An immediate investigation into last year's United Mine Workers
presidential election involving Yablonski has been announced by
Secretary of Labor George P. Shultz. The union had asked the gov-
ernment to conduct-an investigation.
There have been allegations-and denials-that the gunshot
slaying of Yablonski last week grew out of the election campaign.
During the campaign Boyle and Yablonski exchanged bitter charges
of financial wrong-doing and election violations.
In Clarksville, Pa., State Police and FBI agents went from house
to house interviewing the 300 residents for possible leads. Police are
also trying to identify persons who have made threatening telephone
calls to two close allies of Yablonski.

THE FRENCH GOVERNMENT is giving assurances that it
will sell no more than 15 Mirage fighter-bombers to Libya, al-
though the new revolutionary regime there reportedly wants 50.
The U.S. government has expressed official concern over the
political and economic implications of French penetration in the
country. However, the British said the sales are acceptable-if they
are for defensive purposes and do not upset the balance of power in
the Middle East.
French Foreign Minister Maurice Schumann says any eventual
sales will conform to France's general policy. France has placed an
embargo on arms deliveries to countries it considers belligerents in
the Middle East conflict.
GEORGE ROMNEY, secretary of Housing and Urban De-
velopment, reported record success last year in government-sub-
sidized housing starts.
Though "we've got the greatest housing shortage since World
War II," Romney said government-subsidized housing starts totaled
165,000 last year, up 13 per cent from last year.
Depressed private production left the nation short over two and
a half million housing units.
Romney announced plans to increase the assisted starts in 1970
by another 220 per cent and to place more units in suburbs. "It is
vital to easing economic, social, and racial tensions that this housing
be dispersed more broadly than it has ben in the past," he said.
THE INQUEST into the death of Mary Jo Kopechne has
ended, three and one-half days after it began.
Miss Kopechne was a passenger in a car, driven by Sen. Edward
Kennedy, which toppled off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island last
year.
Judge James A. Boyle, who presided over the proceedings, will
now consider whether to recommend criminal prosecution in the case.
Boyle, a District Court Judge, will foreward his recommendation
to Superior Court, the next highest bench in Massachusetts, where
his findings will be acted upon.
Prosecution could develop from Boyle's report or from grand jury
action. District Attorney Edmund S. Dinis has the option of taking
the case before a grand jury no matter what Boyle recommends.

A POLICE SERGEANT testified that he called for a cease-
fire. three times during a police raid in which two Black Panther
party leaders were fatally shot.
Sgt. Daniel Groth, testifying at an inquest into the Dec. 4 deaths
of Fred Hampton and Mark Clark, said the shooting continued each
time.
Groth testified that when he and other police officers tried to
serve a warrant to search for illegal weapons in Hampton's West
Side Chicago apartment, they were met by gunfire. '

FUND SHORTAGE:
City may be unable
to buy new buses

By The Associated Press
Cities, public schools and
business concerns across the
nation are planning to com-
memorate the birth of the late
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King
Jr. on Jan. 15.
The Rev. Ralph David Aber-
nathy, who succeeded Dr. King
as president of the Southern
Christian Leadership Con-
ference (SCLC), asked that
the day become a "national
people's holiday." SCLC of-
ficials are planning a memor-
ial service at Atlanta's Ebe-
nezer Baptist Church, where
King was pastor.
King, who was assassinated in
Memphis, Tenn., on April 4,
1968, would have been 41 next
Thursday.
Public schools will be closed in
New York, Philadelphia, and
Berkeley. Washington, D.C.
schools will close for the after-
noon.
In-school observances are plan-
ned in Los Angeles, Oakland,
>Calif., Buffalo and Cincinnati.
San Francisco and Detroit school
officials left the question of ob-
servances up to individual schools.
Local observances in New Jersey
schools were urged by the State
Federation of District Boards of
Education.
All 16 campuses of the City Uni-
versity of New York will be closed
for the day, dubbed "human rights
day" by_ university officials.
Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich),
who is sponsoring a resolution to
make the date a national holiday,
said a group of 24 Congressmen
are urging mayors of 65 cities to
issue proclamations in observance
of the day.
Mayor Frank Sedita of Buffalo,
N.Y. .said he plans such a procla-
mation.
Also in New York a 30,000-mem-
ber union of office workers and
sales people, District 65, National
Distributive Workers, asked its
members to take the day off and
attend a rally at which Abernathy,
Mayor John V. Lindsay and Rep.
Shirley Chisholm are invited to
speak. The city and many business
concerns plan to allow employes to
take -time off without pay or
charge to leave or holiday time.

PRIOR TO BIPi11AE IW

Although the Ann Arbor Trans-
portation Authority was awarded
a $429,275 grant by the Depart-
ment of Transportation Monday
to purchase badly needed equip-
ment, they may be unable to do so.
Two obstacles facing the. au-
thority are disagreement on the
type of bus nedded and, more im-
portant, the city council's appa-
rent lack of available funds.
A resolution to purchase 33 and
45-passenger buses was passed af-
ter a long debate Wednesday af-
ternoon. Authority members Rich-
ard Koester and Joseph Crafton
voted against the motion. They
said Ann Arbor does not need the
larger buses. A dispute concerning
air conditioning units on buses
was left unresolved. Further ac-
tion was postponed until Monday
night when the authority will meet
again.
Ann-Arbor will have to pay half
the cost of the buses. However the
city council has been advised the
city is facing a financial shortage
and no funds are available.
If the authority does not decide
to purchase the buses, or if the
city council cannot produce the
matching dollars, the city would
probably have to follow a stand-
ard bidding procedure and then
place an order for new equipment.
Parking and Traffic Engineer-
ing Director John E. Robbins'
mentioned the possibility of ob-

taining a loan to pay for the city's
share of the buses if the author-
ity decided it wished to buy the
buses presently available from
GMC.
Some authority members ex-
pressed the belief they should
make a decision independent of
city council and then leave it to
the council to determine how the
funds would be obtained.
John Zelinski, bus system man-
ager, told the authority the bus
system is now in a perilous posi-
tion. Additional equipment will
have to be purchased if the au-
thority plans to meet the request
of southwest area residents who
have asked for a bus to take their
children to school. Parents were
told that if 5Q children are signed
up, a bus would be provided.

No connection has been found
between the Dec. 9 slaying of Mrs.
Gloria Murphy and eight recent
co-ed murders in the Ann Arbor
area, says Ann Arbor Police Chief
Walter Krasny.
James Murphy, the victim's hus-
band, was arrested the day after
the slaying and charged with first
degree murder.
Police officials allege Murphy
stabbed his wife of two months
after a series of quarrels.
Murphy told police he found his
wife's body at. their University
Towers Apartment at about 1:20
on the afternoon of Dec. 9.
He said he left the apartment
about noon to attend a class and
returned home to find his wife
bleeding on the floor. An am-
bulance crew called by Murphy
found the young woman dead
when they arrived at the apart-
ment.
Police arriving at the scene,
