SEOUL, South Korea ( AP) The
United Nations Command has agreed to
a North Korean proposal that the
Military Armistice Commission meet
tomorrow to discuss the shooting down
of a U.S. Army helicopter.
Three Americans were reported killed
and one captured when the helicopter
was shot down yesterday inside North
Korea. The U.S.-led U.N. Command
asked that the crewman and the three
bodies be returned tomorrow.
The command had urged the meeting
be held tonight or this afternoon, but the
North Koreans refused.
There was no indication whether
North Korea would comply with the
request for return of the captured
crewman or the bodies.
The U.N. Command said the CH-47
Chinook helicopter "strayed ac
cidentally" into Communist territory.
President Carter said in Washington
the helicopter had been over North
Korean territory by mistake and "our
primary interest is in having the in
cident not escalate into a confrontation."
"We understand that two of the crew
members were killed when the
helicopter crashed. Another was killed
in the exchange of gunfire in some way
we don't know yet. And the fourth one
apparently has been captured," Carter

there was no exchange of gunfire in the

"Cloud" had been bet that he

Tuesday night. If he did, his betting
partner would have to drink a case of
beer in four hours today.
"This (dope-smoking) is my

reporter. (We wonder what you

"Cloud" said that the reason he
smoked all of the dope was not just to
win the bet. "I just want to show those
hard-assed Congressmen that getting

It didn't kill Chris. The latest

soldiers fired at North Koreans.
U.S. Rear Adm. Warren C. Hamm Jr.,
senior commission member on the U.N.
side, sent a message to North Korean
authorities asking that the crew and
helicopter be returned.
The North Koreans, who claimed the
copter "illegally intruded" on its terri
tory, failed to show up at the truce site
at hours twice requested by the U.N.
command. The U.N. side then called for
a meeting this afternoon while North
Korea proposed it be held tomorrow.
North Korean radio claimed the
"armed" helicopter "infiltrated deep
into the portion of our side" and "was
brought down, . . . by . tbe gunfire of the
Korean People's Army."
U.S. officials denied the helicopter was
armed and said it went down in view of
two U.N. observer posts on the south side
of the 2-mile-wide buffer zone.
The downing of the U.S. Army
helicopter was the fifth such incident
involving U.S. military aircraft during
the 24-year-old armistice that ended the
three-year Korean War in 1953. More
than 2,000 shooting incidents have oc
curred during the uneasy peace and
nearly 50 Americans and more than 450
South Koreans have been killed.

Panmunjom, the United States put its

the incident has not changed the military
leadership's support for Carter's plan.
