PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (P) - An
American B52 mistakenly bombed an Cam-
bodian naval base yesterday, killing or
wounding hundreds of Cambodian service-
men and their families, military sources
Military figures from Phnom Penh hos-
pitals and reports from the bombed Me-
kong River garrison town of Neak Luong
indicated that as many as 100 men, women
and children were killed and up to 300
werd wounded.
could not recall, any previous bombing
accidents in which so many persons were
killed and wounded.
Pentagon spokesman Jerry Friedheim
said in Washington the base was hit when
part of the bomb load from an eight-jet
B52 fell short of its targeet "into an area
where there were some Cambodian mili-
tary and dependents."
He declined to speculate on the cause
of the accident, saying the Defense De-
partment was still gathering information.
A DOZEN CIVILIANS were killed Sun-
day in another off-base U.S. bombing at-
tack at a village along Highway 1 south
of Phnom Penh, according to field reports.
U.S. military advisers faced with an
Aug. 15 deadline for ending the bombing in
Cambodia, have been directing Cambo-
dian-requested air strikes d a itl y against
insurgent forces in an effort to help the
struggling army of President Lon Nol and
his American-backed government.
Neak Luong, a garrison of about 3,000
soldiers and marines who live there with
their families, is 32 miles southeast of
Phnom Penh.

Sunday is lifted into an ambulance. Government troops were attempting to re-
open Route 1.

Ozone and Drug Help seek
new quarters on Arbor St.

Ozone House, Drug Help, and the Com-
munity Switchboard may be on the move
again in their continuing odyssey from
storefront to storefront in search of a
permanent home.
Burned out of the Fisher Cadillac Build-
ing on Washington St. by an arsonist last
December, the three youth-oriented Com-
munity Center agencies have entered a
crash effort to raise enough money by
September for a down payment on a new
THE THREE organizations have focused

their hopes on moving from cramped
temporary quarters .at 603 E. William to
a sizeable frame house at 719 Arbor St.

Although the fundraising effort has al-
ready produced $1800 from a bucket drive
and private contributions, Community Cen-
ter spokesman Bob Davies says a full
$10,000 is needed to cover a down pay-
ment, plus another $5,000 to open and
operate the new premises.
Davies said yesterday that according
to the original purchasing agareement, the

a: Renken hit
The Human Rights Party (HRP)
sponsored a demonstration at the home
a - ,of School Board President Duane Ren-
ken yesterday. The move was to pro.
l..as test his support of the proposed school
for disruptive students, and his tardi-
- ness paying his own school taxes.
But only fifteen people showed up,
all of them members of the HRP and
the Ann Arbor Tenants Union.
THE RENKENS were not at home
x . at the time of the demonstration.
The protest centered on Renken's
backing of a proposed alternative
school, which would segregate so-
s' called "trouble-makers" from the rest
----------of Ann Arbor's high school student
4 population and rehabilitate the dis-
ruptive students.

Community Center organizations must ful-
fill their end of the financial deal by the
end of the month.
HE ADDED that community donors will
have to supply the balance of the down
payment since no more governmental
funding is expected. The three agencies
currently receive financial support from
the city and the National Institute of Men-
tal Health.
Ozone, Drug Help, and the switchboard
have also petitioned the city's Zoning Com-
mission to rezone the property from resi-
dential to office use.
The three groups would share the space
in the house-which is about three times
the size of the E. William location-with
the Creative Arts Workshop, which cur-
rently offers free classes at 302 N. Fifth
THE FREE People's Medical Clinic,
which has temporary space on Liberty St.,
is lookng for a home of its own.
While Drug Help functions as a drug
crisis and education center, Ozone House
concentrates on the problems of runaways
by temporary housing, extensive counsel-
ing, and when necessary, placement in
foster homes. The switchboard handles re-
ferrals of all kinds.
From November 1971 to December 1972,
the three agencies shared quarters with
the People's Ballroom, Tribal Network,
and the free clinic in the Fisher Cadillac
. THE FIRE WHICH destroyed most of
that structure last December brought
about yet another housing problem for
Ozone and Drug Help, two groups that
have traveled together since the winter
of 1970 when they joined forces in a store-
front on S. State. For a time they operated
from a minister's living room, and spent
a year in a house on Liberty St. before
moving to the Fisher building.
