Shy and Introverted, Miss Beck Is frightened of cameras and 1 known tpr the abhorence she has of any mention in the public prints. Accustomed to the more serene atmosphere of the controller's office, Wierzbicki is relatively new to the hullabaloo of public life. But both were "good sports," as they say in outdoor slang. THE CONTEST was ar Biggest Fireworks Thrills Crowd of It was a blast. And as blasts go, Tuesday's giant fireworks display over the Detroit River was the biggest, the brightest ever held to celebrate the International Freedom Festival. A crowd estimated between 500,000 and 600,000 crowded into the Detroit and Windsor riverfront areas to "ooh" and "aah" over the 45-minute display. THE. FOUR BARGES containing three tons of noise, smoke and color were towed to a point about TOO feet from the Detroit shoreline, between the Veterans Memorial and Third. Workers from the American Fireworks Co. fussed with last-minute details, and crowd noise diminished to a murmur. Then, at 9:15 p.m. WHAM ! Aerial shells, break shells, sunbursts, gold crosses, showers of- pearls and fireflies burst overhead, to fall with tails of fire into the waters below. Three of the barges were kept tusy throwing aerial shells into the air at one time, and the night seemed to split and. then crack wide open, exposing hid u i. j i colleague, Anthony Wierzbicki, cast for carp Nothing Fishy About Duel ranged so that Aliss Beck could prove that the fishing is better downstream from the Cobo Hall marina where it is forbidden. Her opponent wants the ban on marina fishing lifted, contending that fishing is better there. At 4:55 p.m., they made their first casts. Miss Beck's casting form has the beguiling, artless grace of a young girl throwing overhand for the first time. Wierzbicki favors tossing in the hook and sinker with his left hand. Technically, W i e r z b i cki would have been violating the law, but Common Council had passed a resolution rescinding the anti-fishing ordinance for the afternoon, Eugene Van Antwerp dissenting.

Hying fish dived and wheeled from the sky, and the excited crowd ap-. plauded the sunbursts and goldenrods. Six months went into the show's preparation, and so it didn't really seem so bad that the display had been postponed a day from Monday because of rain. The weather was perfect, just warm enough to enjoy the picnic-like atmosphere and cool enough to be comfortable. THE 43-M IXUTE show-passed too quickly, and the aerial finale suddenly was there. For eight minutes, blue, red, green, silver' and gold break shells one thousand of them shattered the sky. A deafening, atomic-type barrage was set off and it was all over. The crowd, wanting more, took its time about leaving. Pleasure boats and the giant lakes vessels slowly resumed their way along the river.

Meanwhile, two persona died at Regina General Hospital after being rushed more than 100 miles by air ambulance for medical attention. Dr. A. C. Pickles, medical director at the hospital, said it was "pure speculation' whether the deaths could be attributed in any way the victims not being able to get medical aid elsewhere because of the strike. The victims were Mark Lone child, a five-month-old Indian pneumonia victim, and Mrs. Maria Ferrara, 68, who died of a heart attack. A nine-month-old boy died the day the strike went into effect as his parents desperately sought medical aid in a 90-mile automobile ride. Dr. H. D. Dalgleish, president of the Council of the Saskatchewan College of Thysiclans and Surgeons, turned thumb down Tuesday on a plea from Lloyd that the doctors submit their dispute to an impartial mediator. He is the chief spokesman for doctors fighting the plan. "The plan should be withdrawn because of the proficient determination not to practice after the plan (went into effect) and the serious consequence to the public which will follow," he said in a letter to Lloyd. The doctors' statement was one of several moves underway Tuesday aimed at forcing Lloyd to abandon his medical insurance plan which went into effect three days ago and triggered the strike. TWO PHYSICIANS moved in court to have the plan ruled illegal and angry citizens worked on plans to march on the capi-tol to protest the program. Dondla B.

Na-tionalist Premier Ben Yous-seff Ben Khedda returned to Algiers a few hours after independence in a race to forestall a left-wing guerilla insurrection. By dusk the popular acclaim appeared to have made him master of Algiers. The former guerilla fighter asserted his leadership of the new-born nation and defied what he called the "military dictatorship" ambitions of dissident Deputy Premier Ahmed Ben Bella, who flew to Cairo to confer with United Arab Republic President Gamal Ab-del Nasser. Nasser has appealed to both groups to settle their differences, but according to the Middle East News Agency, no progress has been made. PRESIDENT Charles de Gaulle himself announced the birth of a new nation after 132 years of French rule in a proclamation declaring: "The president of the French Republic solemnly recognizes the independence of Algeria."

Hubbard's city income-tajc proposal was introduced Tuesday night to the City Council, which immediately moved toward making it law. ; The council had the first andi second of three required "readings" of the proposed ordinance which is an exact parallel of Detroit's Income tax ordinance. The 'third reading on the tax, which will levy a one per cent income fee on all Dearborn residents and on all persons working In Dearborn, probably will come at the next regular council meeting, July 17. Three readings are required before a vote is taken. The proposal was introduced for Hubbard by council president pro-tern George Hart. Hubbard told the council that even If it acted immediately to make the tax proposal law, it would take the city at least six weeks to start collecting the tax. WITHHOLDING forms for employers to pass out to employes are being printed now, Hubbard said, and will be distributed to all major employers in the city early next week. Dearborn's largest industry, the Ford Motor Co., will be the principal target of the tax. The company has 54,000 workers at its Rouge Plant, its Central Office Building and other operations In Dearborn. "If we reach the Ford payroll," Hubbard said, "we shouldn't do too bad."

Comity To Collect City Tax BY DON SCHRAM i Free Press luff Writer The Wayne County Board of Auditors voted unanimously Tuesday to withhold the City income tax from the paychecks of County employees. In so doing, it overrode an opinion by Aloysius J. Suchy, chief civil counsel for the Prosecutor's office, that the County lacked power to withhold the tax as an employer. Suchy ruled last Friday that County tax money could not be used legally to collect a tax for the benefit of a single municipality. "We will ask the City to defend us if we get into any lawsuits over this," said Jacob Sumeracld, chairman of the Auditors. "There's a suit pending already, and it won't take long for the court to decide. The cost of withholding is negligible." The County was prepared to withhold the tax from the next checks payable to County employes July 15. Stanley Molenda,, director of aduiting and accounting for the Board, estimated the cost at $1,100 or $1,200. THE DECISION of the auditors has no bearing on two suits pending in Circuit Court and scheduled for early hearings. One challenges the right of the City to tax any County employe's income. The other seeks to determine the right of the City to require any emplyoer to withhold the tax from anyone's paycheck without individual authorization. On the deductive question, the auditors said: "It has always been the policy cf the Board of County Auditors to co-operate with the several municipalities within the County and to provide services for carrying out efficiently those policies and measures which are for the best interest and welfare of each municipality and its citizens."
