Nation IN BRIEF : NEW JERSEY : Montclair Mourns Slain Neighbors

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

With a somber silence, thousands of people in Montclair held hands and prayed during a tearful memorial service for four men killed in a post office robbery. The crowd of elderly people and teen-agers, parents and their young children, overflowed a plaza in front of the post office. "This town is a beautiful town," Irena Lomaga-Carey, daughter of victim George Lomaga, told the crowd of about 5,000. "The outpouring of sympathy and support we got is tremendous."
