Ship Forced Back to Port

SUBIC BAY, Philippines VP)-
The carrier Forrestal, ravaged by

naval base yesterday bringing the
bodies of some of the 129 men

for, and 64 were injured in the
worst U.S. naval tragedy in a
combat zone since World War II,
the ships' officers reported.
One fire alarm sounded aboard

the 76,000 ton carrier as she
moved into Subic Bay and two
others rang after she had docked.
Officers said the fires were caused
by smouldering mattresses and
other material in compartments
in the carrier's shattered stern.
. Small Fires
All the fires were quickly put
out, but officers said small fires
had been giving trouble since the
main blaze was, extinguished early
Sunday and more were likely.
Rear Adm. Harvey P. Lanham,
commander of Carrier Division II,

who made the Forrestal his flag-'
ship blamed the disaster on an+
A4 Skyhawk's fuel tank which was
"punctured and ignited." He said
the "cause of the puncture is un-
known at this time.";
The flames spread and ex-
ploded ammunition, bombs and'
rockets on other planes heavily{
armed at the time for an air,
strike against North Vietnam.
Lanham and the ship's com-

destroyed and 42 damaged in the
carrier's complement of 80.
The 52 bodies aboard the For-
restal were placed in canvas bags,
wrapped in U.S. flags and borne
ashore within an hour after the
ship docked. They will be flown
to the U.S. air base at nearby
Clark Field for the final trip

Two Deaths
Both of the victims - Police
patrolman Byran Moschea, 24, and
eldefly Mrs. Ann Mosley - were
white. Their bodies were found
yesterday in the ruins of a burned
out sniper's nest where four other
officers were wounded before the
shooting stopped.
Dist. Atty. Hugh O'Connel said
55 year old Orey Tucker, a Negro,
would be charged with eight
counts of attempted murder, but
would not be charged with the
murder of Moschea at this time.

Two units of the 2,400 man
guard force called out by Gov.
Warren P. Knowles took over
patrolling of the inner core where
more than 90 per cent of Mil-
waukee's 86,000 Negroes live, pro-
viding a respite for some of the
1,000 or more policemen on duty
since Sunday afternoon.
The riot was preceded by a
downtown altercation between two
Negro women early Sunday. Police
broke that up, but sporadic un-
rest continued through the day
until window breaking touched off
the major disorder about dark.
City Blocked Off
The inner core of the city, five
square miles reaching from the
very edge of the downtown busi-
ness district through the seamy
north side, was shut off by bar-
Police from the 20 overwhelm-
ingly white suburbs ringing the
central city of 750,000 manned
road blocks to prevent entrance.
Except for emergency workers, on-

At one point, near the smould-
ering ruins of several dwellings
that burned during a police gun
fight with a sniper, two officers
in riot gear stood beside a squad
car while Negroes screamed curses

from a window across the street.
Mayor Henry Maier, who had
asked for the guardsmen and pro-
claimed the emergency that per-
mitted quarantine of the city, told
a news conference he would not
hesitate to ask for federal troops
if he thought they were necessary.
Suburban officials generally
followed his lead, closing liquor
stores and banning the sale of
firearms as suburban residents re-
ported a flood of hate calls threat-
ening fire bomb raids into the
fashionable white areas.

CARACAS, Venezuela (P) -- A
destructive new tremor shook
Caracas yesterday as weary rescue
workers continued to probe huge
piles of rubble in search of vic-
tims of the devastating earth-
quake that hit the city Saturday.
The number of known dead
from the Saturday disaster rose
to 58.
The US. Embassy reported that
five Americans had been killed in
the quake and that three other
Americans were among hundreds
of persons unaccounted for.
Unnerved by Weekend
A garment factory collapsed in
yesterday's tremor, and 10 per-
sons were feared trapped in the
wreckage. The tremor spread
panic among city residents still
unnerved by the weekend night
The government reported that,
more than 1,500 persons had been

injured by Saturday's quake, and
Gov. Raul Valera of the Caracas
district predicted Sunday that the
death toll might climb to 300.
The earthquake struck in the
evening, its sharpest jolt coming
at 8:06 p.m. Five apartment build-
ings in the Altamira section, one
16 stories and another of 10
stories, collapsed before residents
had time to flee.
The walls of many other build-
ings continued to fall through
Saturday night, and thousands of
persons left their homes and
camped outor dlept in their cars,
away from tall buildings.'
Debris Searched
Rescue workers used bulldozers
and cranes to search through the
debris for quake victims and sur-
vivors. Fifty bodies were uncov-
ered Sunday, and a number of
survivors were brought out yes-
terday in addition to more bodies.

World News Roundup

Firemen answered 26 alarms in
eight hours in the area. Half were
false alarms. Nine resulted from
fire bombs-jars of gasoline with
lighted wicks-tossed into build-
ings. Only one fire was of con-
sequence,heavily damaging a two
story frame building. Investigators
estimated the loss in all the in-
cendiary fires at $27,000.
