Passengers stranded on

I

tramwa)
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. I -
Thirty-two sightseers, including a
three-month-old baby, remained
traped in a cable car dangling
650 feet above ground on the wes-
tern side of the Sandi Mountains.
Officials said there was no
danger of the car's falling.
AN ARMY helicopter from Ft.
Sill, Okla., failed in its first at-
tempt to realign the tramway's
main basul cable to alaow the car
to move again.
Eight other passengers, who
had been stranded in the Sandia
Peak Aerial Tramway's other
car at a lower altitude, were low-
ered 250 feet by rope just after
noon. They had spent the night
traped in the cable car.
But the lawer car's twa spur-
star's remained an baard, await-
ing another effort by the helicop-
ter to get the cable realigned.
"WE'RE SATISFIED, except
that we'd like to move . . ." re-
ported the operator in the top
car. "We're out of chicken, but
we're happy and warm."
Among the passengers a t il l
trapped was three month old
Marian Morrow and her parents
Mr. and Mrs. Carey Morrow.
Tramway officials. said the ac-
cident was a "one-in-a-million"
occurrence. They said the main
cable used to haul the cars jump-

over n
ed its tracks during a thunder-
storm late Wednesday.
THE TWO 7,000-pound, 60-pas-
senger capacity cable cars haul
sightseers from the base term-
inal at 6,559-feet elevation to
the summit terminal at 10,378
feet where a restaurant and ski
area is located. A view of hund-
reds of square miles of desert
and mountains unfolds at the top.
During the night, more than
600 pounds of supplies, including
food, water, portable tailets and
a bottle warmer for the infant,
were hauled into the stranded
cars by rope.
Clark Speakman, member of a

iountain
volunteer Albuquerque search
and rescue unit, described the sit-
iation: 'They've just got a cable
lapped over another one. They
can't move the cars until they
get it up. There's nothing dam-
aged, nothing hurt and absolute-
ly no danger whatsoever. There's
just one piece of cable misplac-
ed."
ONE OF THE rescued passeng-
ers, Rosemary Sheldon, of Kings-
ville, Tex., said she and the sev-
en others "had a ball" during
their predicament.
Another rescued passenger,
Linda Caraglio of Houston, Tex.,
said, "We sang and danced,
made up stories and told jokes."

Jewish dissidents detained
MOSCOW (UPI) - Secret police detained 10 Moscow Jewish
activists Wednesday and warned them not to cause trouble during
the forthcoming visit to the United States by Communist party leader
Leonid I. Brezhnev, Jewish sources said today.
The Jews also were told that their chances of getting permission
to emigrate to Israel would be improved if they did not demonstrate
in connection with the visit, which starts Monday, the sources
said.
They said the Jews were warned that if they attempted to demon-
strate they would be arrested for the duration of the visit.

SOME 40 PERSONS were stranded when two cable cars on the
Sandia Peak Tramway got stuck during a thunderstorm, Wednes-
day night. The cable car system - billed as "America's longest
tramway" - goves to the top of 10,300-foot Sandria Peak near
Albuquerque, New Mexico.

WASHINGTON (/P) - Senate
critics of the Nixon administra-
tion's Southeast Asia policy vow-
