NEW YORK AP-An explosion
ripped the second floor of police
headquarters last night, apparent-
ly the result of a bomb planted in
a restroom by someone who'
breached the building's strict se-
curity screen.
"It appeared to be a bomb," fire
officials reported.
At least three persons were in-
jured--police Lt. Charles Reuther,
Detective James Dempsey and a
woman elevator operator not im-
mediately identified by name. Four
ambulances had converged on the
scene in anticipation of heavier,
casualties. The trio reportedly
were not seriously hurt.
There were no top officials of
the department in the building at
the time.

A Thai air force chief arrived in Phnom
Phen Tuesday to work out tactics for supporting
air strikes in the area of Siem Rep, near the
historic ruins of Angkor Wat, and other north-
west- points under communist pressure, one
source said.
Siem Rep is 80 miles east of the border of
Thailand. The Cambodian air force is woefully
short of planes, and battles now erupting across
the country have overextended its capabilities.
The Cambodian force consists of 28 U.S. Air
Force trainers converted into bombers and two
flyable MIGs built in the Soviet Union which
carry only two bombs each.

casions provided close air support during major

The action came Monday as the
Senate passed two resolutions.
One, sponsored by Rep. Ray Smit
(R-Ann Arbor), advises Congress
that the Legislature will revise a
1966 law so that the land can be
donated by the state for the park.
The other, proposed by Sen.
John F. Toepp (R-Cadillac), seeks
to guarantee that local units of
government, including school dis-
tricts, will not suffer a tax loss.

sources say that Rep. Wayne As-

House Interior Committee, will
support the creation of the lake-
shore area.
If it passes the House, it is ex-
pected to gain quick Senate ap-
proval where it is sponsored by
Sen. Philip Hart (D-Mich).
Support for the bill came Mon-
day from George B. Herzog, di-
rector of the National Park &S'v-
ice and Rep. Guy Vander Jagt (R-
Traverse City), who represents the
district where the park will be
located. Vander Jagt, as a state
senator opposed the bill until this
year. His predecessor, Robe.t P.
Griffin, now U.S. Senator, also
opposed the park when he repre-
sented the district. Griffin now
supports it as well.
Herzog noted that the park is
located within a day's drive of
some 20 million people.

acres of which 41,000 acres en-
