(AP) -State -State Police say the recovery of a body, from Ihe deep, cold wa- lers of Lake Placid could possibly clear up Ihe 30-year-old mystery surrounding the disappearance of prominent New Jersey college dean. Troopers awaited the arrival of pathologist lo help examine lire decomposed body, believed Eo be that of a woman, found Sunday by scuba divers. Capt. Harold T. Mullcr of Troop B, Malone said he and other in- vcsligalors were trying lo determine determine whether the body might be that of Mrs. Mabel Smith Douglass, Douglass, one of the founders of New Jersey College of Women. Records here showed that Mrs Douglass disappeared while row- Ing on the lake on Sept. 21, 1333, She was then 56. The' body was found on a ledge at a depth of aboul 95 feet near Ihe east sliore of tlie lake in tlie vicinity of Pulpit Rock, where records indicated, Mrs. Douglass boat was found by searchers 3i years ago. Muller said that what appcare to be women's shoes were foum on lire body and added lhat there were no apparent means of Men tificalion. Investigators speculated lha lie near-freezing lempcraturcs i' Adirondack Mountain lake' eep water could have preserve* he body for a long time. Muller reported lhat the divers members of the Lake Champlai Vrcck-Raider Club, spoiled th body while exploring ledges an he lake bottom. The divers lo!d Iroopers tha he body was virtually inlac vhen found but Chat it disinh jraled when raised to tlie su: ace. Mrs. Douglass, a native of Jc soy Cily, was the first dean of 11" New Jersey College for Wome when if was founded in 1918. Sh was credited with having hclpc o establish that institution. Th college was renamed in her ho or' in 1955. Funds sec motor coun audil share loca re for con Ih eel ucled by the Internalional Joint xm miss ion. Railroad representatives also poke out against the proposal. A representative of tugboat op- rators supix)iied the proposed ·aterway. William K. Cleary said prepared statement that a lodern barge waterway "would pen up Lake Champlain ports to economies of barge trans- ortation on commodities hereto- ore not carried by water. . ." Cleary is executive vice prcsi- ent of (lie New; York Tow Boat ;xchangc. Ccllcr complained lhat Canada vas trading wheat for tcxlueji nth Red China and said some of hese shipments might move irough the St. lawrencc Seaway. "Certainly," he said, "we would ot want any possible Champlain Vaterway conlaminalcd with Red hina freight." He addK|, "Certainly, we in Hie Jniled Stales have never intend- xl to help build and support a outc that would in the slightest degree give any aid and comfort o Communist China. "Frankly, we deplore, tlie aclion if Canada in Us deals with an mplacable foe of western democracies--Red China." Ccller also said he was. con vinced thai the proposed seaway was "not economically feasible' 1 and "would further accentuate our transportation crisis.' Arthur E. Bayliss, vice president president of marketing /or the New York Central Railroad, expressed eltef that the proposed waterway could sap $4 million in freight ·evcnues from the Central. Such a waterway, he said, would reduce the Central's freight Iraffic and add lo ils financial difficullies, "just as the St. Lawrence Lawrence Seaway has · hurt us." John P. Hillz, president anc general manager of the Delaware Hudson Railroad, said a Champlain Champlain route would not be justified in view of what lie called the poor Iraffic and revenue record of the St. Lawrence Seaway. In addition, he said, a new sea Way would "do serious and ir reparable damage to the existing rail common carriers systems o the United Stales and Canada,' Hillz argued that there was an "overabundance" of rail, hig!iwa and water facilities in the area o Ihe proposed seaway. And he sak he rejected the theory that the watcrsvay wouid foster sufficien industrial growth to justify Ihi cost of ils construction. A decline in freight biisincs stemming from development of new seaway would, he said, "be a serious blow to Ihe company' fulurc 2 Other Negroes Slain In Wake Of 'Bama Riots BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP)-Of- [icials took extraordinary steps today to head off any new racial violence in bomb-shaken Birmingham Birmingham after a dynamite blast killed four Negro girls, caused hours of terror and brought outraged protests protests from national Negro leaders. leaders. The U.S. Justice Department sent in three lop officials and a lorcc of FBI agents with bomb experts. City officials joined with church leaders in a special lele- cast, urging citizens to he calm. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., a Negro leader, flew into lown to urge Negroes to me nonviolent- just as he did in May when the bomhln of a Negro molel touched off rioting by Negroes. National Guardsmen w e r e placed on alert. Gov. George C. Wallace Wallace sent 300 stale troopers bombing of a Negro m o t e t Albert Boutwell. fhe Sunday morning Wast at Sixteenth Street Baptist lurch occurred during a youth ,y program at the church where .merous desegregation meetings ivc been held. It killed tiie four young girls ad injured 23 others. Witliin a w hours, two Negro boys were tot to death in other pads of e city, and Ihree other persona ere wounded. "Today has been Ihe most ightening in the history of Bir- ingharn," said Sheriff Melvin ailey 'as violence continued reaking out despila pleas for eace. Not since integration leader .edgar Evers was shot"to death ; his home in Jackson, Miss., In une has the nation's Negro com- luuily reacted to strongly to ra- al violence. Negro leaders called for strong ederal action. The blast was Hie worst of nu- lerous bombings ami other .vio- iiice since Negroes began cam- aigning in April for dcsegrega- ^Untarnished' Justice Promised For County Some day -- perhaps very soon -- Justice in Ontario Counly will no longer be tarnished. We refer, of course, to the statue statue of Lady Justice which stands in somewhat dubious glory high on lop of the county courthouse. Tt is perhaps an act of mercy that the lady wears a blindfold. If she were able lo see her dismal robes, which absorb the sun's rays like a dirty sponge, she probably would drop the scales of justice and attempt lo cover herself herself from the probing eyes of the public. According to Supervisor George McG. Hayes, chairman of the county board of supervisor's courthouse committee, plans have been made lo gild the 2,000 pound wood statue with gold leaf. No longer will she sland like a i-iganlic piece of dirly taffy on her 130-foot high ncdist-al, the dome of the county courthouse. Koon she will glitter, resplendent in the glory she knew for Ihe few- short weeks after sire was raised lo her place on Dec. 23, 1961. Wilhin less than three months, the statue began turning a dull, unglamorous shade of brown. Th firsl diagnosis ol her condition is reported by supervisors in th winter of 1962, was that tho col weather had caused the varnis Lo turn "milky." They were to! lhat warm weather would brin back that vital glow to Lady Ju lice/ Warm weather, how* e v e brought with it only a continu lion of the delerioration of th lady's robes. The impending gold leaf 10 according to Hayes, will be a pe mancnt gilding of the lady. B fore Ihe statue can be gold-leafec however, crews must repair large crack that has appeared the unfortunate symbol of juslic "We need a spell of good weal er for Ihe-men lo be able to pair Ihe damages and if we g it we may be able to finish tl job before winter," said Hayes. Tn the meantime, Lady Jusli stands q u i e t l y , keeping h thoughts to herself. But perha she is lioping secretly that weather will continue lo shine her so thai she in lurn may shi once again. They achieved public school in- gralion. Its beginning last week roughl some student boycotts nd protests. Gov. Wallace earli- r sought to block the integra- on. but was stymied by federal nlervention. Tliis tense city spent a long, earful day and night after Sun- ay's blast. Several fires broke ut, rocks were thrown by Ne;roes Ne;roes in various sections and gun- ire was reported. Sunday school classes at the ·hurch were just ending a lesson in "The lovo that forgives" when he explosion ripped out concrete, metal and glass. The four girls apparently wera n the lounge in the basement of be old brick church. One, Syn- hia Wesley, 14, was hit by the 'ull force of the blast and could be identified only by clothing and ring. The others w«re Carol Robert)n Robert)n and Addic Mae Collins, 14, and Denico McNair, 11. Even as officers were roping off a tsvo-hlock area around the church -- the starting place for many of the desegrcgalion demonstrators demonstrators earlier Ihis year--civ- and church leaders were cry- ng for peace and nonviolence. But there was no peace. Two while youths fatally shot a 13- year-old Negro boy, policemen shot to death a 15-year-old Ncsro and two while men were wounded by Negroes, one in a robbery attempt. attempt. Police were kept on the run for hours investigating reports of rock throwing, fires and other outbreaks. The stale troopers camo in, tha FBI launched its probe and U.S. Atty. Gen. Robert F.
