WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1957- New Orleans Braces For New Storm New Orleans (INS) Tropical storm Esther, still 200 miles south of the Louisiana coast, caused squalls with winds up to 30 MPH last night in Gulf of Mexico coastal areas as hundreds fled to high ground with grim memories of Hurricane Audrey. Hundreds of off shore oil workers left their riggings yesterday and many coastal residents, who were affected by Audrey's devastation last June and were clouted less severely by storms Bertha and Debbie since that time, headed northward to safety. In its latest bulletin on the fifth tropical storm of the season, the New Orleans weather bureau said Esther "is expected to continue northward tonight with the center moving inland Wednesday between Pecan Island and Grand Isle." The advisory warned: "Storm warnings are displayed from Lake Charles to Grand Isle, and small craft from Corpus Christi, Tex., to Pensacola, Fla., should remain in port." Pecan Island was virtually wiped off the map by Audrey's fury, which claimed some 500 lives in Cameron parish and the little fishing village of Cameron. GRAND ISLE was severely damaged last year by Hurricane Flossy, one of the worst storms of 1956. The weather bureau said Esther was centered last night some 200 miles south of West Louisiana coast "moving northward about eight mph." "Gusty winds in squalls will occasionally reach 40 to 60 mph" along the coast, the weather bureau warned. Tides were expected to reach three to five feet and rough seas were forecast. Southeast Louisiana was to receive heavy rains for the next 24 hours. Humble Oil Company nt some 500 riggers to Grand Isle from drilling locations several miles off shore and the company said the men would be moved farther north if the storm menaces the resort community. Meanwhile, Sheriff O. B. Carter, who directed relief work in Cameron when Audrey's tidal waves rushed over the town, said residents had fled before being advised to do so by weathermen. Handicraft Teachers Sought liy Hed Cross The Indianapolis Red Cross yesterday appealed for volunteers to teach handicrafts, manual arts, photography and other skills and crafts at Cold Spring Road Veterans Administration Hospital and the Marion County Home for the aged at Julietta. The veteran's hospital needs volunteers to instruct patients in manual arts and photography. Volunteers to teach weaving, painting, wood working, drawing and sewing are needed at the county home.

JONES TOOK the position that information given the Indianapolis police became part of their own records. "It is our prisoner and our records," he remarked. "We intend to run our own house. We have had very close cooperation with the FBI and have given them valuable help. "We are all in the law enforcement business. We are here for the same purpose, which is to protect the public. I hope they remember that." Piper differed directly with Jones, declaring that all reports coming to the police from the FBI remain the property of that agency together with all the information they contain. THUS THE POLICE would be prohibited from announcing that they had caught a kidnaper wanted in another state if the FBI had provided the information. Local police further pointed out that it was the police departments which built'up the big FBI files by supplying fingerprints and that they are entitled to service without strings attached. "It is public money which paid for the FBI records and the public is entitled to benefit by them," one remarked. The Piper memorandum is a lengthy one, covering four typewritten pages, single spaced. IT QUOTES the complete text of the Indiana anti-secrecy law of 1953 and the opinion of Attorney General Edwin K. Steers. Steers has ruled that any records required by law to be kept by any public department or agency are open, unless expressly exempt. Informal notes are not, however, Steers said. Seizing on this, the memorandum states: Jamioon New ROTC Profes-iorvAt Cutler Lieutenant Colonel Alex C. Jamieson, 331 West Hampton Drive, a veteran of 17' j years of military service, is the new professor of air science and head of Butler University's Air Force ROTC unit. Jamieson succeeds Lt. Col. Robert Jarrell who was transferred to the Canal Zone. The new professor flew more than 100 combat missions during 1942-44 while stationed in England, Sicily, and North Africa. Flu Closes Schools Monrovia, Liberia (AP) The government yesterday ordered all schools, movie houses and dancing halls closed in Monrovia for 10 days as the result of an Asian flu epidemic. Bread Of Life Bv Rev. A. P. BAILEY There is no unrest like that of a man who cannot trust his wife. Fancied or real, an unfaithful wife produces tension and lack of creativity. Her husband cannot settle down to his work. When a man's heart is at ease because he trusts his wife, he finds strength to face the difficulties of his daily work or hard circumstances as they arise. The writer of Proverbs understood when he said, "The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her so that he shall have no need of spoil." Many a man with splendid possibilities has been undermined and humiliated and has lost his self-confidence because of a wife -who riddled him with word and attitude, and created distrust. ' She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. (Proverbs $1:12) "In cases involving dual jurisdiction with the FBI, a police agency would not be violating the law, therefore, if they maintained only notes until such times as the investigation is determined by mutual agreement between the police and the FBI to have progressed to the point where the issuance of a police report, accessible to the press, would not offset the public interest or jeopardize the outcome of the investigation. "Under no circumstances, however, should the FBI be placed in the position of making an official request to the head of a police agency to follow such a rule since the anti-secrecy statute provides penalties for attempts to circumvent. "THE BUREAU does not wish to embarrass any state law enforcement official by making such a request nor to be embarrassed by having made such. "Should Indiana law enforcement officials agree among themselves to follow such a policy, this bureau would interpose no objection." Nyle M. Jackson, Jenner's administrative assistant, discovered the authority for the orders in Public Law 49 passed by the last Congress appropriating money for the FBI and other agencies. It was a paragraph slipped THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR in under "salaries and penses" giving the FBI ex-the right to cross offending police departments off its list. OFFICIALS questioned by Jackson readily admitted they had it inserted to "protect" their records, claiming two instances had been found in the entire country where police officers sold the information or let it be used for blackmail purposes. Jackson said one official asserted that the FBI had no objection to the information being given out by the police as long as they did not attribute it to the FBI. But that is not what the new law says. And it is not what Piper's memo says. Phone Service Concluded From Page 1 city's operators with no picket lines to cross. Another strike advantage claimed by the Bell firm was the increased popularity of its only complete station-to-station, long distance dial installation at South Bend. Calls there were 113 per cent of normal on Monday, it was reported. Although a Federal mediator yesterday was unable to find a basis for possible agreement. ! - - - i " ; : ' -IV - - - , v. 1 - - ' ' " ) "' - - i A: -.; -v .j , ....... ; . -r !f .... -,y, - ? . -v.s 5.

Phillips and Mayor Phillip L. Bayt man a huge shovel to break ground for a new $105,000 fire house at 34th Street and Sherman Drive which will be completed next March. Two other new engine houses expected to be under construction soon will be located at Tibbs Avenue and U.S. 52 and at 17 South Sheridan Avenue in Irvington.

Families-You Concluded From Page 1 peace of mind. We saved at least an hour during the trip. We got off the turnpike. The road signs became confused. I followed Mrs. G's directions. We ended up 15 miles away from the hotel and the beach. BUT SUCH IS life while traveling. All along the highway are signs telling of the fine and imprisonment thai can be meted litterbugs who toss trash from cars. And if you think trash doesn't accumulate in an automobile that doesn't have children along, you're wrong. It does. We didn't toss it out. Which brings to mind that it had to be a Florida columnist who discovered Britain, too, has her litterbugs. AND HE DISCOVERED a poem that got to the crux of the problem. lt goes: Resemble not the slimy snails, That with their filth record their trails. Let it be said where YOU have been, You leave the face ot nature clean. PAGE 5 Can't Escape He pointed out that in Scotland been is pronounced bean.

Mrs. Whitehead had just stepped to the telephone when the chandelier fell where .-.he had been standing, according to reports reaching GOP state headquarters y terday. Her roommate, Mrs. Mary S. Wedding, personal secretary to Governor Harold W. Handley, sustained a cut on her foot from flying glass but was not hurt seriously, it was reported. The two are attending a western meeting of Republican women outlining plans for the coming campaigns.
