What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

As nightfall approached, two columns of the three-prong drive had reached the southern edges of the 75-square-mile Chup rubber Retired Vet Kills Family, Then Self SATELLITE BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A 42-year-old Vietnam veteran, described as despondent because of constant pain from injuries, killed his wife, four children and himself today, police said. Maj. Robert Cowden, winner of the Distinguished Flying Cross as a helicopter rescue pilot, called the Satellite Beach police station at 6 a.m. to report that he had killed his entire family, officers said. When police reached the house of the retired officer, they found Cowden himself dead near the telephone. Also dead in the white, five- bedroom home were Cowden’s wife, Dora Lynn, 33, and the children—Buck, 11; Duke, 12; Camille, 5; and Lady Caroline, 10. “He was so depressed and in such constant pain,” said Mrs. James Devlin as she and other neighbors gathered to watch as ambulances carried the bodies away. “Only yesterday, they were swimming in my pool, but Maj. Cowden was so ill and in so much pain we couldn’t but feel terribly sorry for him.” The Cowdens moved here four months ago after he retired following treatment in the Brooks AFB hospital in Texas. Neighbors said Cowden was involved in two helicopter crashes in Vietnam and also had been in an automobile accident after his return to the state. It was not known which resulted in the continuing pain. plantation. One was reported only three miles from the. town of Chup, on Highway 7. There were no reports of contact . with the enemy. South Vietnamese intelligence officers said the North Vietnamese had been shifted last week from the headquarters in the plantation to help defend the Dam Be base area to the east, the ob­ jective of a Saigon thrust then. According to the intelligence reports, the North Vietnamese are now moving back and are along the northern edges of the sprawling plantation. South Vietnamese officers said their immediate objective was to seize the town of Chup. Chup is on the eastern batik of the Mekong river, 110 miles nor­ thwest of Saigon and 35 miles from the borde. The French plantation was the scene of hard fighting during the first allied invasion of Cambodia in May 1970 and again test February. The plantation has suffered heavy damage from U.S. and South Vietnamese air strikes and is virtually inoperative. The U.S. Command said American B52 bombers pounded the plantation last week, ap­ parently softening it up for the South Vietnamese sweep. “Large numbers of bunkers were uncovered,” an American spokesman said. “Tunnels col­ lapsed, and there were a great many secondary explosions, in­ dicating hits on fuel and ammu­ nition stores.” South Vietnamese officers said a defector told them the B52s wiped out a regimental headquarters and two battalions. Hie drive is a new phase of a 25,000-man offensive into eastern Cambodia begun Nov. 22 to destroy enemy supplies, disrupt com­ munications lines and forestall a dry-season invasion by three North Vietnamese divisions into South Vietnam. Elsewhere, fighting was re­ ported continuing at several po­ sitions around Phnom Penh, in­ cluding Phnom Baset, 14 miles northwest of the Cambodian capital.

The 55-member chorus opened with Jean Berger’s classic com­ position, “Magnificat,\ based on the Virgin Mary’s response to Gabriel’s enunciation that she had been chosen to deliver the Christ Child. Highlighting this superb presentation were solos by soprano Vicki Bowman, flutist Carte Wood and percussionist Merle Nelson, each providing a major facet in this melodic success. Handel’s “Messiah,” perhaps the most beautiful and inspiring of all Christmas music, was accorded impeccable treatment by the WMC singers, concluding with the powerful and moving “Hallelujah.\ Organ accompanist for the 45- minute program was Dr. Lawrence Andersen, a recent and talented addition to the Music Department faculty ranks.

A train doesn't care. - You,can't hurt ? its feelings. But Union Pacific is involved with trains. And we care! So every once in a while we like to remind people of just how much trains do for them. Trains haul freight, mostly. And while it's hard to personally relate to \freight when you break it down into canned peas, your breakfast cereal, and that electric vibrator chair you have your eye on, \freight\ gets very personal. Most of the things you own, eat or wear, at one stage or another, came on a train. And here in the West, train means Union Pacific. • A - ' - -
