NINE CZECHOSLOVAKS yesterday hijacked a Czechoslo-
vak airliner at pistol point, forced it to land in Nuernberg, West
Germany and asked for political asylum there.
Nuernberg police said they would withhold the names of the
nine - four men, four women and a two-year-old child - in order
to protect their families. Police said the group had fled to the West
for political and economic motives.
Five of the nine who held guns on the crew and passengers of
the aircraft were later charged by Prague officials with forcible de-
tention, coercion and making threatening actions, police reported.
Nuernberg police said the group of Czechoslovaks apparently
had planned the hijacking well.

THE AGRICULTURE DEPARTMENT has agreed to settle
for $77,014 a government claim of $693,000 against a Virginia
processor for spoiled chicken donated to an African nation in
The claim, lodged two years ago, involved about half a million
cans of exotically flavored chicken shipped to the Republic of the
Congo under the U.S. Food-for-Peace program.
Congolese importers were reimbursed $693,000 in local curriencies
after spoilage was found in the shipment. The Agency for Interna-
tional Development, which handled the transaction, passed the bill
to the Agriculture Department as the original financing agency.

MORE THAN HALF of the 31,000 American troops sent into
Cambodia have been withdrawn to South Vietnam, informed
sources yesterday reported.
At the same time, Thailand was reported considering the dis-
patch of its 12,000-man Black Panther Division, now-in Vietnam, to
a Cambodian trouble spot 80 miles from the Thai border.
Informants in Thailand's capital said the Thai Government be-
lieves that the thrust of Communist command forces around two
Cambodian cities is "a grave threat to Thailand."
However, pressure from the Viet Cong in that area eased yester-
day after Cambodian troops and planes pushed North Vietnamese
forces off Siem Reap, an airstrip taken Sunday, while other Cam-
bodian forces drove Viet Cong from another city in central Cam-
U.S. military sources in Saigon said they had heard nothing
about any Thai troop move into Cambodia from South Vietnam.
Thailand has said in the past that it would help the government of
Cambodia if needed.
THE COMMANDERS-IN-CHIEF of Argentina's army, navy
and air force yesterday announced that Jaun Carlos Ongania had
been disposed as president and that they were taking over the
A communique broadcast over the government-operated radio
network said the armed forces commanders had decided to assume
"immediately" the political leadership of the country. "As a result,"
the communique continued, "Lt. Gen. Jaun Carlos Ongania has been
removed from his duties as president of the nation."
A later announcement said a new president would be named with-
in 10 days.
Newsmen at Government House said Ongania was barricaded in-
side the building and protected by 1,200 heavily armed cavalry troops.
The crisis began yesterday morning when Ongania rejected an
army demand, backed by the navy and air force, that he adopt a
"political plan" under which he would share power with the armed
forces and consult with civilian leaders.
After rejecting the demand Ongania then dismissed the army
commander and said he would assume personal command of Argen-
tina's 135,000-man army.

CHICAGO (M -Several per-

Building during an outdoor
rally for Bobby Seale, chair-;
man of the Black Panther
Seale, 33, who is being held in
New Haven, Conn., on charges of
conspiracy to kidnap and commit
murder, was scheduled' to go on
trial yesterday b-e f o r e Judge J.
Hoffman of U.S. District Court
on charges of conspiracy to in-
cite rioting at the time of the1
1968 Democratic National Con-_
The crowd in the Federal Build-
ing plaza listened to speeches urg-
ing the release of Seale and other
Black Panthers serving prison}
Three of the rally speakers
were David Dellinger, Rennie Da-E
vis and Lee Weiner, members of
the Conspiracy 7 and codefen-
dants of Seale until he was sev-
ered from the others and grantedl
a separate trial.
Dellinger, Davis and three oth-
ers were convicted in February of
crossing state lines to incite riot-
ing, but were acquitted of con-
spiring to do so. Two defendants,
Weiner and John R. Froines, were
acquitted of both charges, but all
seven were sentenced at the end
of the trial to jail terms for con-
tempt of court.I
Davis told the crowd, "We mean
to free Bobby Seale . . . by any
means necessary." He also called
for an assault on the New Haven
jail where Seale is being held.
"When I say an assault," he
said, "we mean an assault. We
mean it. We mean it."

In San Francisco Bay, more
than 80 Indians occupying Alca-
traz Island failed in their initial
efforts to raise money by boating
tourists, at $5 apiece, to the form-
er federal prison.
The Indians, who have occu-
piedhthe island sinceNov. 20, 1969,
loaded up 20 tourists and got
about 200 yards off Fisherman's
Warf when U.S. Atty. James
Browning, through a Coast Guard
radio, ordered them back. A Coast
Guard cutter stood by near the
island to prevent a landing.
The Indians didn't resist and
returned the disappointed pale-
faces to the wharf.

Good added that the election
gave a five to four majority to
liberals on the city's school board.
Referring to the defeat of the
millage and bond issues, Superin-,
tendent of schools W. Scott Wes-
terman said he was "deeply dis-
tressed." He said that there was
"no question" that there would
have to be a reduction in staff by
as many as 80 to 100 positions in
spite of an expected increase in
student enrollment. He added that
there was a possibility of some
teachers being layed off.
-Westerman said the defeat of
the bonding issues-which were to
provide funds for new school con-
struction and renovation as well
as a library addition-would seri-
ously hurt efforts to alleviate the
already "critical space shortage"
in the city's schools.
With all but one of the 40 pre-
cincts reported, returns were Car-
rington 7,283; Good 6563; and
ronn 6546. Trailing behind Conn
by more than 200 votes in a field
of 11 candidates was Mrs. Patri-
cia Shipman, a conservative who
supported the millage and bond'
The five separate bonding issues'
were each defeated by margins of,
