Keith explains city government budget City Manager Gerald Keith explained the operat.ona budget of the city government to the Hope Rotary Club at a luncheon meeting in the Town and Country on Friday, August 23 He said that it is divided into five funds-airport, street, health, sewer, and general The general fund includes all of the small operations not included in the other four funds. The expenditure in each area is for payroll of workers, purchase of material, and maintenance of equipment. With the rising cost of everything it is apparent that more revenue is needed in each department. This can be realized by an occupation tax, a license tag fee, or a five mill tax. The people will have to decide which method to follow, and more information about this will be forthcoming. Additional information about the city government concerned two additional fire stations to be built in Hope. The sites have been purchased, but no com struction plans have begun. The speaker told of a number of other things that are needed but were not included in the budget. Before the program began, club members sang "Happy Roses" (to the tune of Happy Birthday) to B.N. Holt, who had been saluted on the "Living Roses" program that day, and to Roy Anderson, whose insurance firm makes the KXAR show possible. Dr. Emmett Thompson directed the singing, accompanied at the piano by Dr. Lester Sitzes. As president of the Hope Rotary Club, Keith presided over the meeting and welcomed a visiting Rotarian, Billy Mitchell of Van Buren.

The federal supervisory office for credit in Berlin said it has withdrawn the license of the Frankfurt Trade Bank, a small bank in Frankfurt, becausp a recent stockholders' mee|ing and the institution's last annual report established that it could not meet its obligations. The bank had a balance styeet total of — $5.38 million — and capital equivalent to $538,JKX), the office said. A spokesman said repayment of private deposits was guaranteed by the national German bank association and the Frankfurt city savings bank, Collapse of the small Frankfurt bank followed the failure of three larger West German banks. The biggest of these was the Herstatt Bank of Cologne, which went under on June 26, It had assets of $800 million and owed various sums to foreign banks including some in l|he United States. Actor is off critical list LOS ANGELES (AP) — British actor Cyril Ritchard was pff the critical list today following a sharp improvement in I|iis condition after suffering an apparent heart attack in a stage performance. Ritchard, who played Captain Hook in the stage and televisipn versions of "Peter Pan," was listed in satisfactory conditipn today by a hospital spokfs- woman. She said there h,jid been no decision on when the 75-year-old actor would be released. Hitchard had been due |:o play the part of a millionaire |n the stage show "Sugar" at the Music Center here. When he collapsed Sunday in a drew rehearsal, many in the audienqe thought it part of the act. He was placed in the corc|'- nary care unit of County-USC Medical Center. By The Associated Press In New York and Cincinnati, costumed women posted 'a "proclamation" for equal rights on the doors of two Roman Catholic cathedrals. Elsewhere, there was scattered picketing as women activists celebrated "Women's Equality Day" on Monday and the 54th anniversary of female suffrage. Fewer than 100 persons paused to watch in New York as nine women, dressed to portray female Catholic saints, staged their protest on the steps of St. Patrick's Cathedral. Their proclamation, like the one in Cincinnati, demanded Catholic church support of the Equal Rights Amendment for Women. The Cincinnati rally had the support of Mayor Theodroe M. Berry, but it fueled sharp exchanges among bystanders outside Roman Catholic St. Peter In Chains Cathedral. "These women ought to be put off the church grounds," said Jeanette Clooney, a housewife. "Our Blessed Virgin wasn't out fighting for equal rights." About a dozen women pick- eted the Manpower Administration office of the Labor Department in Pittsburgh, protesting the federal agency's hiring practices. "If you read the manpower training booklet put out by the Labor Department, it's very obvious that they're recruiting men," said Betsy Parziale, vice president of the National Organization for Women. The NOW chapter in Washington held a series of "zap" demonstrations against employers accused of sex discrimination. In Los Angeles, about 250 em- ployes of The Aerospace Corp., most of them women, attended a speech by Col. Billie M. Bobbitt, director of women in the Air Force. She said upward mobility for women "is a matter of law" in the military, but she added: 'Military women are still not fully accepted and cultural attitudes of both men and women within and outside the military are involved." The Equal Rights Amendment has been approved by 33 of the 38 states needed for ratification. U.N. will apparently stay in Turkish areas ATHENS, Greece (AP) United Nations peacekeeping troops will apparently be allowed to remain in the Turkish-controlled part of Cyprus, U.N. Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim indicated today. Arriving here from talks with Turkish leaders in Ankara, Waldheim told newsmen: "I have discussed this problem with the Turkish government and they have not requested me to withdraw our troops from Turkish-held areas." Senior U.N. officers in Nicosia complained last week they were under mounting pressure to pull out of northern Cyprus. They said Turkish troops were driving U.N. troops out of their positions, often under threat of force, and were blocking U.N. convoys with food and medicine for Greek Cypnots marooned in the Turkish zone. Waldheim met for two hours with Premier Constantino Cara- manlis and Foreign Minister George Mavros and reported afterward that there was still a "considerable gap" in the positions of the Greeks and Turks toward resumption of negotiations. The secretary-general's second visit to the Greek leaders completed his fact-finding tour of the capitals of Greece, Turkey and Cyprus. He was flying back to New York via London to discuss his findings with the British, who with the Greeks and Turks are the guarantors of the independence of Cyprus under the island's treaty of independence. Waldheim said he had found "there is a wish with all the governments concerned to reach a negotiated settlement and to avoid hostilities." He described his discussions in Ankara with Premier Bulent Ecevit and Foreign Minister Turan Gunes as "careful and fruitful." Meanwhile: The Greek government handed the Soviet ambassador its formal acceptance of Moscow's proposal for an 18-nation conference on Cyprus. The participants would include the 15 members of the U.N. Security Council and Greece, Turkey and Cyprus. The U.S. State Department said the "creation of another forum would not be useful" but promised to consider any proposal to move negotiations forward that is acceptable to all parties. Greek sources reported that Turkish troops on the Greek- Turkish border fired several bursts of machine-gun fire at a Greek outpost Monday. The Greeks did not return the fire, and there were no casualties, the sources said. Lindbergh (Continued from Front Page) Young Lindbergh took mechanical engineering at the University of Wisconsin. But he left in less than two years to enroll in a Lincoln, Neb., flying school. Lindbergh was lured into his great adventure by a $25,000 Orteig prize for the first transatlantic nonstop flight from New York to Paris. Others before him had flown across the Atlantic, though never alone. With the backing of a St. Louis group, Lindbergh supervised construction of a Ryan airplane, and in the misty, drizzling dawn of May 20, 1927, he took off from Long Island's Roosevelt Field in "The Spirit of St. Louis." At Le Bourget airport in Paris, 25,000 wildly enthusiastic Frenchmen mobbed Lindbergh's plane as it landed. Showered with medals and ' honors, 'Lucky Lindy' came " home to adulation. (Continued from Front Page) "$25,000 in $20 bill $15,000 in $10 bills and $10,000 in $5 bills." The note said: "After 2-4 days we will inform vou where to deliver the money." The "signature" on the note, and promised on future ones, was two interlapping circles with three square holes. Dr. John F. Condon, a Bronx schoolteacher, was named intermediary and became famous as "Jafsie" (from his initials J.F.C.). On the night of April 2, 1932, Condon paid the $50,000 to a man who from a hedge in a Bronx cemetery yelled, "hey, doctor" and again, "hey, doctor, over here." In return Condon got a note which said, "The boy is on the Boad Nelly — you will find the Boad Nelly between Horseneck Beach and Gay Head near Elizabeth Island."—Presumably the waters off Martha's Vineyard, Mass, Lindbergh searched there and in many other places in vain. For two months by land, sea and air he pursued flimsy clues and phantom ships and then learned when he returned May 12 from a search off the Virginia Capes that the child's body had been found in a shallow grave five miles from the Lindbergh home. The ransom money led to Hauptmann's arrest. The government had distributed 250,000 circulars giving the serial numbers of the notes — $35,000 in gold certificates, $15,000 in other paper currency. On April 5, 1933, President Roosevelt, in a measure born of the depression ordered that all persons possessing more than $100 of gold certificates exchange them by May 1 for other currency at banks of the Federal Reserve System. On a central map at state police headquarters in Trenton, N.J., Col. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, the superintendent, stuck a locator pin where each note was found. Most of them were in the Bronx. It was there that Walter Lyle, a gas station attendant, received a $10 gold note on September 15,1934, and wrote on it the license number of the car whose driver bought five gallons of gas. Hauptmann was ar- rested four days later. He had a $20 gold note on his person and in his garage they found $14,600 more. Hauptmann'sexplanationwas that the money had been given him in a shoe box by a friend and business partner, Isidor Fisch,' then Fisch left for Germany. He died there before Hauptmann was arrested. When this money was offered in evidence in the trial, Atty. Gen. David T. Wilentz, who prosecuted the case, asked a witness, Frank J. Wilson, special agent in charge of the intelligence unit of the Internal Revenue Service: "So far as you know, Mr. Wilson, since the indictment of Bruno Richard Hauptmann for murder has there been one ransom bill turned up?" "No sir," Wilson replied. He conceded that all the ransom gold notes were never detected, saying that "several billions" of dollars worth of gold certificates had been exchanged and it had been impossible to detect every one. Wilentz could not be reached Monday, but he has told me in many interviews that nothing has ever been developed to change any of the testimony. In an interview on the 40th anniversary of the kidnaping he said: "Not one thing that I know of has developed since the trial that could cast doubt on the positive proof that the defendant wrote the ransom notes; nothing has developed to disprove that he hid the ransom money in his garage or that lumber from his attic was used in the construction of the ladder." Seven handwriting experts for the state compared the handwriting on the ransom notes with Hauptmann's handwriting and testified that Hauptmaiin wrote, them all. Arthur Koehler, a wood technologist of the United States Forest Products Laboratory of Madison', Wis., one of the state's star witnesses, traced the wood in the kidnap ladder from a mill in McCormick, S.C., to boards from Haupt-mann's attic. Koehler said a ladder rail had once been part of a floor board in the attic. Koehler said he laid the board on a joist in the attic and found the nail holes in the board matched those in the joist. Koehler said that knives with plane lumber at a mill often leave tell-tale markings on the wood. He said he detected a tiny groove which ht knew had been made by a knife of a certain type. He spent 18 months checking 1,598 planing mills to trace the origin of the wood. One with markings spaced like those on the ladder rail led to the South Carolina firm, Koehler said. He traced 45 carloads of lumber from the mill to 25 firms and in November 1933, — 10 months before Hauptmann's arrest — found a lumber company in the Bronx which had lumber with markings matching those on the ladder rail. Hauptmann had bought $10 worth of lumber there in 1931. Wilentz argued the ladder broke as Hauptmann was leaving the nursery "and down he went with this child." He said the child died instantly and then said of Hauptmann: "Knowing the child was dead ... he yanked and ripped that sleeping garment of that child off his body ... he didn't need the child ... he needed the sleeping garment ... some few miles away he scooped up a hastily improvised and shallow grave and put this child in it face downwards." Condon received the sleeping garment in the mail as proof that he was dealing with the right man. Hoffman, who had granted Hauptmann one 30-day reprieve the day before he was scheduled to die, said he shared "with hundreds of thousands of our people the doubt as to the value of the evidence that placed him in the Lindbergh nursery on the night of the crime ... I do doubt that this crime could have been committed by one man ..." Hauptmann's appeal from the death sentence was carried to New Jersey's highest court which said: "Our conclusion is that the verdict is not only not contrary to the evidence but one to which the evidence inescapably led."
