LONDON - A county officil suggest-
ed yesterday that Americans b. banned
from staying in small guesthouses in his
southwest England district because they
bathe too much. Roy Hendy made the
remark after hearing that six Ameri-
cans who registered in an old cottage
all wanted hot baths both morning and
night. They left in a huff when told it
could not be done due to problems with
water disposal. Many rural guesthouses
have inadequate drainage resulting in
the possibility of overflows by septic
tanks and cespools. "The trouble with
these damned Americans is that they
bathe too much," Hendy said.
NEW ORLEANS, La. - The Agricul-
ture Department's chief grain inspector
in this port city denies a congressman's
charges that grain operators deliberate-
ly add dirt to grain sold to foreign cus-
tomers. Harlan Ryan said Sunday that
never in his 25 years as an inspector has
he found a grain operator deliberately
adding dirt or debris. The New Orleans
port handles one-third of Americas grain
exports. Rep. Neal Smith (D-Iowa) has
charged that grain operators in the Uni-
ted States deliberately add dirt and de-

bris to meet the maximum amount of
foreign matter. "If grain being loaded
has only 1 per cent foreign material,
they sweep up the floor and put that in
to bring it up to three per cent" or the
contractual limit for foreign materials,
he said.
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - In a sur-
prise move, Peter Leonard, 22, pleaded
guilty yesterday to murdering 24 persons
who died last June 30 in a fire at Gulli-
ver's discotheque in Port Chester. Leon-
ard also pleaded guilty to arson and
burglary charges. Judge George Beis-
heim issued a temporary sentence of 15
years to life. According to the indict-
ment, Leonard broke into a bowling al-
ley adjacent to the discotheque and, af-
ter burglarizing a cigarette machine, set
a fire in a store room. The fire smould-
ered for about two hours before smoke
started to enter the dance floor area.
Several hundred merrymakers fled the
building in a panic. It took more than
300 firefighters over five hours to con-
trol the blaze.
LANSING - State lawmakers are con-
sidering a bill reducing the maximum
term for heroin users from 20 to 10

years and raising the penalty for heroin
pushers to a mandatory life behind bars.
The measure came before the House
Judiciary Committee yesterday. The
bill is similar to recommendations made
by the states top law-enforcement offic-
GRAYLING - The rumisling tanks of
the Michigan National Guard have been
forced to retreat - by a bird. The Na-
tional Guard said yesterday that it has
temporarily complied with a request by
the State Department of Natural Re-
sources which asked that tank maneuv-
ers be halted until Aug. 15 to protect the
nesting area of the Kirkland's Warbler,
a bird on the endangered species list.
The maneuvers planned for July 15
would endanger 44 pair of the birds who
have nested in the middle of Camp Gray-
ling's tank range. Only 334 of the birds
are known to exist, down from 1,00 in
Today will be mostly cloudy with a
chance of showers. Highs will be in the
mid 70's and lows in the mid 50's. There
will be a 50 per cent chance of rain.
For the rest of the week you can
expect more of the same.

A Reminder
is the final deadline for the
Art Fair Supplement,


WASHINGTON (A') - S e n .
William Proxmire (D-Wis.), said
yesterday he has documentary
evidence that the defect which
caused the crash last April of a
CIA transport loaded with Viet-
namese orphans is common to
most if not all of the Air Force's
CIA fleet.
Proxmire told reporters he is
not yet prepared to make the
evidence public, but will do so
soon. He appeared before the
Senate Government Operations
Committee as a witness on de-
fense procurement.
"I DO NOT mean to be melo-
dramatic, but in candor it must
be said that the deaths of the
children and others who died in
the Saigon crash, and the huge
sums that have been wasted on
this program, should lie heavy
on the heads of the government
officials responsible for the
scandalous way in which this
major weapon system was ac-
quired," Proxmire said.
Last Thursday, the Air Force
blamed the April 14 crash of the
CIA transport near Saigon
which killed 155 persons, mostly
children, on the failure of a
ramp locking mechanism. The
Air Force ruled out sabotage.
"What the Air Force has not

revealed is that this defect,
along with other such as the
weaknesses in the wings, is
structural and exists on most if
not all CSAs in the inventory,"
Proxmire said. "Moreover, the
Air Force has known about
these deficiencies for several
IN ITS report, the Air Force
said the entire locking system
in the CS fleet is being studied
for possible changes. Mean-
while, it said, the 77 CI planes
in its transport fleet are oper-
ating under restrictions barring
them from flying in areas of
The Lockheed Aircraft C o.,
which makes the CSA, said it
was in general agreement with
the Air Force and stressed that
the report found no structural
defects in the CIA.
The Air Force said the crash
occurred when three locks on
the right side of the rear ramp
unlocked during flight, setting
off a chain reaction which caus-
ed rapid decompression inside
the plane.
The Air Force report said the
ramp and pressure door b 1 e w
out and that the pressure door
hit the fuselage and cut im-
portant control cables.
