Deathly taxes
T HOUGH IT'S SAID nothing is certain but death and taxes, car wash
worker Gary Hanson is certain of one other thing: He's not going to ask
the IRS to figure his taxes next year. This year they charged him about 60
times more than his yearly wages. Hanson had been waiting for the $318 tax
refund the Internal Revenue Service said he was due on the less than $3,000
he earned last year. Then he got a bill for $189,424 in taxes. Hanson went to
the local IRS office, which had figured his taxes and the refund, to try to
strighten it all out on Wednesday. The clerk in the Problem Resolution
Program office told him is was an error on the part of the person who put his
tax return into the computer, and he was indeed due his refund. Hanson said
he had no hard feelings, adding, "Anyone can make mistakes, but I'll get
someone else to do my taxes next year. a r
What are friends for?
FORT WAYNE, Ind. - Donald Reader of Fort Wayne thinks a pair of
season tickets for Notre Dame football is worth about $100,000. And he's sued
a longtime friend for the tickets he's been using for 14 years. In lieu of the
tickets, he's asking James Funck to give him $100,000 for another pair.
Reader contends in al Allen Superios Court suit filed Friday that Funck
agreed in 1966 to purchase two season tickets on his behalf from the Univer-
sity of Notre Dame in South Bend. Now Funck wants family members to use
the tickets and Reader fears he won't be able to get any more without a sub-
stantial cost. Notre Dame no longer issues new season tickets except in ex-
tenuating circumstances. Reader thinks $100,000 would qualify. The two men
work at the same plant in Fort Wayne and have known each other for 40
years. Funck said he obtained two extra tickets in 1966 and offered to let
Reader buy them. Says Funck, "Season tickets are big business." Q

WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S.-backed
foreign mercenaries made two secret
forays into Laos recently but failed to
,verify persistent reports that American
soldiers missing from the Vietnam War
were captives at a jungle site, Pentagon
sources say.
The first trip about six weeks ago
failed when the mercenaries were "in-
tercepted and there was a firefight,"
the sources said, adding that they did
not know if there were casualties.
ABOUT TWO weeks ago, the mer-
cenaries reached the jungle camp and
took photographs of its occupants, ac-
cording to the sources, who asked not to
be identified.

in Laos
Analysts later concluded that no
Americans were pictured and decided{
the site probably was "some sort of re-
education camp" the sources said.
The mercenary group, involving
Laotians and other nationalities but no
Americans, was sent on the "remote
possibility" that missing U.S. service
personnel were at the site in com-
munist-controlled Laos, the sources
THEY SAID the camp had been un-
der observation for "some time" by a
number of different methods, including
satellite and spy plane photography.
The Washington Post reported
yesterday that Satellite photos showed
human shadows on the ground which
some analysts believed were too big to
have been cast by Asians.
Photos also showed tools thought to
be too large for Asian use, what ap-
peared to be a guard tower and earthen
confinement barriers and a suggestion
that the word B-52 had been formed
with bodies or logs, the Post said.
BUT WITH THE possibility that
Caucasians in the camp might be Soviet
advisers, officials said the photographs
could not be used to justify a rescue at-
tempt by U.S. military personnel.
