Quints' Survival Chances Brighter ABERDEEN. S. D. (AP) -- The Fischer quintuplets, very tiny but extremely vigorous, rounded out their first 48 liours of life early today with good prospects for survival. The babies born to Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Fischer early Saturday were reported doing fine. Dr. James Berhos, Who delivered the infants, said they were going strong on a diet of sugar water* and may be switched to some- ^ thing heavier today, like a milk formula. Late Sunday, Dr.'Berbos reported that the.four girls and a boy were being fed aboul four cubic cenlimclers of sugar water every two hours. Berbos, who has delivered 3,607; children in his 16 years ns a physician, said bolh mother and children were doing extremely well.

Gifts of money ami merchandise continued to pour in for the family, and Dr. Berbos added one of his own. "I don'l think I'll charge tliem anything," Derbos said. He indicated that St. Luke's Hospital, where the infants were born, also would forget about a bill. , 1 Dr. Derbos told a news conference that he hadn't delivered any more babies since the birth of the quintuplets. Looking al a score of newsmen crowded inlo the hospital lounge, Berbos smiled and said: "They've all been scared off."

(AP) --Tlie huge while oak believed to bave inspired Joyce Kilmer to write "Trees' will be cut down Wednesday, a victim of old age. The tree's demise sounds, a sad note for Rulgcrs University, site or' the oak, and for tlioso wlio iy it was 'the tree Kilmer had in mind when he wrote the poem. Others say the tree-that inspired Kilmer is elsewhere. Maliwah, a community in northern New Jersey where lim poet lived four years, contends Kilmer wrote of the trees . that shaded his home there. In Montague Cily, Mass., llicy tell how kiliner wrote "Trees" after seeing a spi-eading maple in Ihe yard of an old mansion. In Swaiizey, N.H., 25 miles norlh of Montague City, It's thought the Ir.te poet penned "Trees' uliile viewing a group of maples during a vacation. Belief that the gnarled oak at Bulgers was Hie Irce of "Trees' has grown over the years. However, a university spokesman admits: "We can't prove i thp one Kilmer had in mind. Bui then, who can prove an inspiration?' . Tlie legend is that as a boy in New Brunswick and as a student at Rutgers, Kilmer sat under the sprawling oak, its branches spanning more than a hundred feel in near-perfect symmetry. He lefl here in 1906. "Trees' appeared in 1913 in literary magazine, while Kilmer was living in Mahwah. Whether an oak, a maple, one Iree or many inspired Kilmer will probably never be known but the oak at Rulgers, perhaps Hie besl known of Ihe 'Kilmer trees," will be on center stage Wednesday. Tlie oak stands alone in a field enclosed by a small white fence When felled, it will be stored un til a decision is made on-wha lo do wilh the wood. Racial Tension Grows In Birmingham After 4 Killed In Bombing 'Remarriage Hurt Bid For President,' Rocky presidential nomina- a very deep under- WASHINGTON (AP) - New York's Gov. Nelson A.

"1 have standing of the reactions of indi-. viduals in this situation," he said Sunday night in a television inter view--NBC's "Meet the Press." have no sense but one of feeling for people's concern. "I think it is a situation which political life is difficult." He expanded his vcws further today in an interview in U.S. News World Report. Commenting on his divorce and remarriage said: "I think thai the reaction on lhal subject is a highly personal wilh all people. Unlil such lime as llicre is an occasion when they have lo make a decision, it's hard to Icll exactly what lhal .reaction will be. "But when an individual has to make a decision, whether it's in convention or in Ihe votiiu: booth, · I lien I think lhat he will bring thai factor, along wilh all of the other faclors, inlo balance and make a 'decision. Tlie collective effort of all the people's decisions would, of course, give (he answer." , · He noted lhal Ihe .Gallup Poll now has Sen. Barry Goldwaler of Arizona in Ihe lead for Iho nomination, but said he believes someone else could end up with Hie big prize. As for GoWwaler, the Arizonian said in an AP interview that if be decides lo go after the presidential nomination, one of Ihe main reasons would be his belief lhat as head of the ticket he could help Republicans get elected to the House and Senate in the South, Midwest and West. "Win, lose or draw, if I were the nominee, I believe I could help get a lot of Republicans elected," he sahl. Goldwalcr stuck lo his position thai be won'l make up bis mind unlil January about seeking Ihe nomination. (Continued on Page 3, Col. 7) ' WASHINGTON (AP)--Robert S. McNamara Is probably (he toughest man ever to hold Lite-demand' ing job of secretary of defense-and his toughness has generated resentment among some military leaders. They Jiavc learned, sometimes painfully, lhat be means, lo have things done his way. AHrKuigii McNamara has his admirers in uniform, there are those who question "whether he hasn't carried the acknowledged principle of civilian control too far-and hasn't, in the process, downgraded the importance of professional military judgment. Adm. Gcorgn Vf. Anderson, denied a second term as chief of naval operations, gave voice to these views recently when he warned against "discrediting the voices of dissent, especially itie dissent of military men speaking on subjects they know." Despite"'official denials, "it is believed that Anderson's differences with McNamara on the TFX fighter plane development sped him into military .retirement. Anderson ;oon will leave for Portugal U.S. ambassador. McNamara has insisted, in reply to criticism, that he consults .he military chiefs more than did any previous defense secretary. le told a Senate committee recently he had turned to the chiefs on literally hundreds of occasions and that "their advice is absotute- ,y essential," Differences between military and civilian viewpoints are not new of course--nor are public protests by military men. Four years ago Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor blasted Eisenhower defense policies as Taylor retired as Army chief of slaff. Now, with many of Taylor's kloas adopted by the Kennedy administration, he is back in the Pentagon at the very top "of the military heap--as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Placid Eight persons were arrested. The. students held the Town Hall rally (o discuss conditions tlicy found in Cuba. They contended they were not allowed to describe them at violence-marked hearings before the House committee on Un-American Activities in Washington last week. Some 1,4(10 persons filtered inio Hie hall on West -13rd Street and at' one point 80 persons engaged in a free-for-all that disrupted the meeting for 20 minutes. During tlie melee, an anti-Castro demonstrator was knocked unconscious. He required hospital treatment. When tire two-hour mecling ended, heltncted police formed corridor through which the MOO persons could pass safely from Ihe hall to 1 a nearby subway station. Persons al the rally were heckled and became targets for cgg. and oilier foodstuffs hurled by anti-Caslroitcs, some 50 of whom had been picketing the hall.

Body May Uiiraval M y s t e r y LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) -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 whether the body might be that of Mrs. Mabel Smith 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.

(AP)-Wardei Leonard Meaeham has reporter Ihe wall healers installed in Ih Wyoming penitentiary's main eel block are missing. 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 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 Seaway has · hurt us." John P. Hillz, president anc general manager of the Delaware Hudson Railroad, said a 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 after a dynamite blast killed four Negro girls, caused hours of terror and brought outraged protests from national Negro 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 sent 300 stale troopers bombing of a Negro m o t e 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 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 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 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 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 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. Police were kept on the run for hours investigating reports of rock throwing, fires and other outbreaks. The stale troopers camo in, FBI launched its probe and U.S. Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy sent Ihree fop aides. Burke Marshall, Joseph Dolan and John Nolan. King, president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, telegraphed President Kennedy: "Unless some immediate steps arc taken by the federal government to restore a sense of confidence in Ihe prelection of life, limb and properly...we shall see in Birmingham and Alabama the worst racial holocaust the nation has ever seen."
