outside the l ifth Avenue town-
house overloS Ling Central Park.
The officer, J Ian Gavin said he
did not stop therm because they
were well-dressed and his func-
tion is to provide security out-
side the mission.
Gavin said he heard a shot
in the lobby and turned to see
one of the men over the wound-
ed guard, identiifed as Radomir
yledic, '8. Gavin said he pur-
sued the men upstairs and one
of them told him through a
closed door:
"I WANT publicity. I want the
cameras here!"
Gavin, thinking the trio had
taken a woman hostage, offered
to change places with her but
the offer was refused.
Medic suffered a wound in
the a b d o m e n. The security
guard, who also acts as a chauf-
teur for the mission, was re-
morted in serious condition at
Lenox Hill Hospital.
THE TERRORISTS draped a
flag out the window and threw
down leaflets demanding free-
dom for Croatia. At their insis-

tence, a police radio car de-
livered some of the leaflets to
Kurt Waldheim, secretary-gen-
eral of the United Nations.
At the climax of the tense
events, as the gunmen were be-
ing removed from the mission
by policemen, there was re-
newed drama.
A n o t h e r Yugoslav security
guard suddenly displayed a ma-
chine gun, scattering police, who
drew thei rown guns and shout-
ed: "Get out of the way."
AT THE SAME time, one of
the Yugoslavs inside the mission
shouted, "Kill them now! They
won't get justice!"
Police Officer oJhn Varonec-
zyk said, "They wanted to kill
them right there, right on the
spot."
Croatian terrorists were in-
volved in the hijacking last Sep-
tember of a Trans World Air-
lines New York-to-Chicago flight
which was forced to fly the
Atlantic before the skyjackers
surrendered in Paris:
THOSE ABOARD the plane
were not injured. But a New

U.N. guard
York City bomb squad officer
was killed while trying to defuse
a bomb left by the skyjackers in
a locker beneath Grand Central
Station.
Three native Croatians and
the American wife of one of
them were convicted last month
in Manhattan federal court in
connection with the skyjacking
and the policeman's death. A
fifth Croatian defendant pleaded
guilty. All await sentencing.
Yesterday, Joseph Medjugo-
rac, employed by a Bronx stor-
age firm, was making a delivery
at a building on East 66th Street
at Fifth Avenue when the gun-
men raided the mission.
"WHEN WE came up here,
we heard the shot around the
corner. We looked out there, and
there was a man holding a gun
out of the window of the second
floor," he said.
Medjugorac said when police
arrived the gunmhn in the win-
dow fired two sohts, but no one
was hit.

City admits mistake
in mayoral election

happened on election day," said
Henry. "But we didn't really
expect the results of the inves-
tigation to make a big splash."
Henry said he thought the
work done on the investigation
was "very good," but that it
did not solve all the problems.
He is especially concerned
about the vote tabulation in
ward one, precinct 11.
"There was one more vote
counted than the number of
voters who used the one ma-
chine," said Henry. "The voter
has been tracked down but no
one could locate her."
T H E ADMINISTRATOR'S
report says a police investiga-
tion shows that the voter in
question no longer lives at her
registered address, and " a ser-

ious error occurred in not col-
lecting her application to vote
card before she went into the
machine to vote."
Henry said he was not sure
how he would use the investiga-
tion in Belcher's law suit. "I
don't anticipate that it will play
an important part in the law
suit, however I think it points
out that changes should be
made in the way we conduct
elections in Ann Arbor, to avoid
these kinds of mix-ups in the
future."
Attorney Robert Grace, who
is representing Mayor Wheeler
in the law suit, said the investi-
gation showed the City Clerk
"ran a very good election."
"Out of 22,004 votes cast,
there is only a problem with
one vote," said Grace. "I think
that's a pretty good record."

THE THIEF OF PARIS
Louis Molle, 1967) 7 ONLY-AUD.. A
When an orphan 'Jean-Paul Belmondo) ischeated of his inheri-
tance by an uncle and is jilted by a beautiful cousin, he robs the
family jewels of the cousin's fiance. That starts him on his career
as a professional thief. "The film has more political wit and ampli-
tude of observation than any period film since Viscontin's THE
LEOPARD. Without plantinghistorical notes, itpersuades you that
this is eactiy what it was like to live in France through the 1890's."
-Penelope Giliatt.
MURDER OF THE HEART
Louis Malle, 1971) 9 ONLY-AUD. A
The bebop beatof Charlie Parker and Sidney Bechetsets the tone
fr this tender sophisticated and funny story of a boy, his adoles-
ene and his mother. Although an element is incest, it is handled
5th charming delicacy and Malle manages to make the act seem
ww aik making love than like ne rophilia. A matar , much
acc anae look at growing up.
