Service to Honor Bus Crash Victims

MONROE TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) _ A memorial service will be held

today for the ten New Jersey residents killed this week when their

tour bus crashed in Chile.

They were among 12 who died.

The service will be held at the Jewish Congregation of Concordia

in Monroe Township, where six of the victims worshiped.

The victims, all in their 60's and 70's, were part of a

64-member B'nai B'rith group that was traveling aboard the cruise

ship Millennium. They had made a side trip to see the mountains on

a tour bus that tumbled more than 300 feet down a mountainside.

Funerals for three of the New Jersey victims will be held

tomorrow. And services for four more will be held Monday.
