Reds Set To Release
Two Americans, 32 Others Aboard
Plane Kidnapped by North Koreans
TOKYO (N)-Communist North Korea announced last night it
is ready to free two Americans and any of the 32 others aboard a
kidnapped South Korean airliner..
A broadcast from the capital of Pyongyang said the two American
pilots and two West Germans would be turned over "at an appropriate
time" at the truce village of Panmunjom or some place inside North
Korea "mutually agreed upon."
The annotncement was a sharp reversal of the stand Pyongyang
took shortly after the plane landed two weeks ago near the North
North Korea said then it would free those aboard only if the
South Korean government would negotiate for their release. Now,

WASHINGTON P)-Sen. Karl
Mundt (R-S.D.) said yesterday
"the most eloquent testimony"
about the guns and teai gas
bought by the Kohler Co. after its
employes were organized by the
United Auto Workers was that
none of it was used.
He told newsmen this reflected
to the credit of both the company
and the union during a bitter
strike, now nearly four years old,
in that it testified to "self restraint
on both sides."
Mundt is a member of the spe-
cial Senate Labor - Management
Rackets Committee that is investi-
gating the violence that has oc-
curred during United Auto Work-
ers' strike against the Kohler, Wis.,
plumbing fixtures company.
Told of Violence
In the first three days of the
hearings, to be resumed Monday
afternoon, the committee has re-
ceived testimony about mass
picketing by the union, various
acts of violence and vandalism,
and the company's purchase of
guns and ammunition.
Mundt said it was "too early to
draw conclusions," but Sen. Pat
McNamara (D - Mich.), another
committee meber, said in a,
separate interview he feels that
"so far the. company looks worse
than the union."~
McNamara also described the
hearings as "dull and not import-
ant," adding he was interested in
improper activities and racketeer-
ing but that these elements wer,
absent from the current inquiry.
The hearings got under way
only after a battle among the com-
mittee members, evenly divided be-
tween Republicans and Democrats,
In the end the Republicans won
their fight to prevent Walter Reu-
ther, president of the United Auto
Workers, and Herbert Kohler, the
company president, from being
called as the lead-off witnesses.
They insisted on others being
Robert Kennedy, the commit-
tee's counsel, said he hoped to call

Mundt said he thought that
after another week's testimony
"we should have a clear idea of
the kind of questions" to direct to
the top officials of the union and
He said while there had been
testimony about vandalism and
acts of violence, the committee had
yet to pin down who was respon-
sible for it.

Top Buckeyes, 72-69
By JIM BENAGH
Glenn Davis beat everything Michigan had to offer last night
but he-couldn't overcome "lady luck," as the. Wolverines nipped the
Buckeye trackmen in the final event, 72-69, at Yost Field House.
Davis won four firsts in as many events when he lined up as
anchorman for the deciding event of the meet, the mile relay. OSU
had a 64-62 lead at the time.
But Ohio's leadoff runner, sophomore Dick Strayer, dropped his
baton at the start of his second lap after a battle for positions with
Michigan's Jim Simpson. The Buckeye quickly picked up his baton, but
