Mario* In thli town, Yankee Pharisees' Jlamed by. Author For Souths Stand STRATTON, Vt. (AP) — Aulhoi Robert Penn Warren, 58. Pulitze; Prize winner in 1947 for his polili cal novel "All the King's Men" says "Yankee Pharisees are be hind much of South resistance" to equality for Negroes. Warren has a fast-spoken South era accent that lingers from ear Her years in the South. A nativi of Kentucky and outspoken on Civil rights, his love for skiin; drew him lo Vermont. Gives Inienievr The Civil Rights issue, he said, ii an interview with the Brattteboro Reformer at his "workshop" in pine woods, has been made a mat ter of 'bad Southerners'—many in the South feel this bitterly—when it actually is a national problem and a human problem. "There is no solution lo the prob lem but removal of segregation of all kinds that do not touch private action." The author of "Segregation", a 1956 book of essays, and "At Heaven's Gate", a novel of present-day South, Warren said he is 'delighted" with Negro demon ;rations outside the South because le claimed, they show the issue > "not one of sectionalism." National Approach "It makes me hope we cat] gel a national approach to this," ne said. And he added: "Fortunately, you can't cry 'nigger' and get elected any more in the South." A resident of Fairfield, Conn. Warren who has a wife and two children, has been coming to itratton since 1958. He is building a second vacation home in five years on the banks of Ball Mountain Brook. It will overlook Strat:on Mountain. Of Vermonters, particularly the older ones, he said they are "like he rural people of my youth in Kentucky and Tennessee. They ;ive me a nostalgic feeling. They lave old fashioned attitudes, they :ave self-reliance and closc-billen lumor." Planning Novel Warren is currently planning a lontemporary novel witli a Tennessee setting. "I have to keep writing fo pay or it," he explained, grinning in he direction of the home under construction. Of modern day literature in America, Warren said: "It cer- ainly is not one of our great icriods," but there arc outstand- ng writers "easy lo overlook be- :ause they are young; they have nany years ahead of them." He named the four of them: Eaul Bellow, William Styron and xwls Robert Lowell and Richard Sberhardt. Dr. Cosline's office closed un- il Monday t Aug. 19.—adv.

Lenhoff Says He Hasn't Abrogated Solicitor's Duties City Solicitor Bernard Lenhoff said today thai he hasn't abrogated his dirties as the city's legal officer on the Harrimnn Airport ranway project bidding situation. A story appearing in Friday's Transcript makes it look that way, he added. "Up To Commission" That story said that, in effect, Mr. Lenhoff has ruled that it's up to the city's Airport:Commission to decide whether the Jow bid submitted on the ?132,000 runway extension project is legal. Today Mr. Lenhoff said his opinion was that it lies within the discretion of the commission as to whether the bidding requirement — not met by the low bidder — shall be waived and the bid accepted. Doyle Brothers Construction Co. of Worcester and Paxton had submitted the low bid at $114,473.50, almost $3,000 less than the next lowest bid. But the Doyle bid was accompanied by a certified check of $2,500: required in the specifications was a $3,500 certified check. Such checks are normally required of bidders as a bid guaranty or a sign of good faith tha they will follow through on th project. The checks of unsuccess ful bidders are returned. Rends from Opinion This is what Mr. Lenhoff reaf from his opinion today: .... it is my opinioh that the Airport Commission has the right power and authority to determin whether it will consider the bid submitted accompanied by a cer lified check in an amount les' than was required providing thn the public interest be servec 'hereby. Whether the public interes will be served thereby in waivin; ;he hid deposit requirement, the ;aid commission should take inl> consideration the effect such ac lion may or may not have on fu ture competitive bidding in the city of North Adams." It appears to boil down to this —it is still up to the Airport Com mission. L Boudreaus Wed 25 Years, Feted at Party A silver anniversary party was held' Sunday afternoon for Mr. and Mrs. Louis Boudreau of 103 EraceweU Ave., at the Clarksburg Volunteer Fire Department Hall.

The couple has three daughters, Sister Mary Eymard and Sister Mary Louise/ both of the Order of Sisters of St. Anne, and Miss Louise Boudreau of 103 Bracewell Ave. Amedee Levesque Is Heavily Beset By Birthday Woes The stock birthday phrase "one to grow on" should be amendec to "one to grow old on," judging from the ill-luck befalling Amedee Levesque yesterday. Celebrating his birthday with a fishing trip to Sadawga Lake in Whitingham, Vt., Sunday morning, Levesque inadvertently tumbled headlong into the pond clothes and the works. Capping the day's misadventures yesterday afternoon, Levesque's packed car rolled rider- less down the East Main Streel Extension and then off the road and up a bank near the Mohawk Trail intersection where it teetered precariously. Police Patrolmen Henry Ma roni and Arthur Barbeau, summoned by persons who saw the car's run-away antics, enlisted the aid of several residents of the area in holding the car upright while it was pushed down off the bank. It was driven away ay Mr. LeVesque under ib own power, but made odd noises that indicated it had incurred some damage to add to the owner's oirthday woes. Chances are, if Mr. Levesque had elected to spend yesterday snuggled comfortably in bed, he would have had nightmares. Shower Miss Jacqueline Rlomn Miss Jacqueline Blouin of 46 Hudson St. was guest of honor at a miscellaneous shower given Friday night by her aunt, Mrs. Francis Piaggi of 70 Maple St. Co-hostesses were Mrs. James Charon and Mrs. Philip Corsi, both aunts of Miss Blouin.
