Garden City Telegram 1 p.m. TtmperatuHi 87 Vol. 33 GARDEN CITY. KANSAS, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER, 10, 1962 14 Pages No. 291 5th Game Winner Yanks Take Series Lead NEW YORK (AP) - Tommy rresh slammed a 3-run home run out of Yankee Stadium in the bottom of the eighth inning today to give New York a 5-3 win and a 3-2 World Series edge >ver the San Francisco Giants. Tresh's big blow came with one out and Bobby Richardson and Tony Kubek on base. The Giants came back with one run in the top of the ninth. Here's an inning-by-inning report: FIRST INNING GIANTS—Hiller walked. Davenport struck out. M. Alou struck Dut. Mays lined to Tresh. No runs, no hits, no errors, one left. YANKEES—Kubek singled. Hiller fumbled Richardson's potential double play ground and Kubek reached second. Sanford got Tresh's liner and took his time tossing to McCovey for a double play. McCovey's throw to Pagan at short was too late to get Kubek for the triple play. McCovey deflected Mantle's grounder to Hiller whose throw to Sanford was too late to retire Mantle as Kubek reached third on the error charged to McCovey. Mantle stole second. Marls flied to F. Alou. garden— ing "Opportunity" knocked here during the 1920s in more ways than one. Henry Weldon, in going through some old files, came across a magazine called "Opportunity," which w'as published monthly at Garden City about 35 years ago. It was an August, 1926 issue, and the cover featured a picture of the fine Finney County orchard of Jacob Ratzlaff. Below the picture it stated: "No farm is complete without its orchard and there is no excuse for not having at least plenty of fruit for the family's use on every western Kansas farm. Onfy a well and good cultivation are required. Demonstrations of the little irrigation from the family possibilities in fruit and vegetable growing can be found on many farms in every western Kansas county." Inside are pictures of wheat harvest on the Jess Kisner farm in Finney County; of the deep- shaded home of Fred J. Evans, Garden City attorney; of Bishop August J. Schwertner and others selecting a site for a Catholic Church 10 miles south of Dighton; of an adobe house built by William Daniels In Scott County; and of Orvile Jones, Hugh Abro- crombie and Earl Cochenour with strings of several hundred fish — caught in western Kansas. Henry also showed us an ad he had placed in the Telegram back when it was a weekly. It was 2 columns wide and 2 inches deep, and there w'as a note written on it that it had only cost a dollar. Everything has gone up, Henry. * * * Would you like to get up early some morning, go by plane to New York City, spend about four or five hours sight-seeing, shopping or on business, then take a plane back and arrive here shortly after midnight? This will be possible starting Oct. 28 when Central Airlines inaugurates its new early morning flight which will originate in Garden City. Keith Tabor, Central representative out of the Topeka office, brought in a new timetable for the airlines yesterday. The morning flight will leave here at 5:25 a.m. daily except Sunday, and will arrive in Kansas City at 8:57 a.m. — in time to patch jet flights to New York or elsewhere. In the evenings, a flight will leave Kansas City at 9:15 and arrive in Garden City at 12:46 a.m. •One problem which has cropped UD due to the remoteness of our airport is getting the plane crew to town 'and back again between 12:46 and 5:25 a.m. Also, during this period the plane must be checked, cleaned, and serviced. * * + We heard this morning that the Humane Society enthusiasts are not only taking care of dogs at the city pound, but are making a daily trio to the country to feed a fa nifty of homeless pups. Somewhere west of town a dog gave birth to a half-dozen pups or so and Ms the-m in an irrigation pipe. Humane Society workers went out to get the dogs but the mama dog refused to cooperate and hid her pups. So now the women take the fo?d out, leave it nearby and then back off far enough that the dog and pups will come out to eat. No runs, one hit, two errors, two left.

Situation Looking Up for City's Animal Population American Taxpayers May Share Load of Cuban Prisoner Bill Heve Friday. Saturday It will still be a dog's life, all right, but the situation is looking up for Garden Citys four-footed creatures. That's the report this week from officials'of the Humane Society of Garden City. The group is working enthusiastically to improve the lot of tho local dog and cat. Right now the big project is the new animal shelter, to be built just southwest of the Finney County Fairgrounds. Slow but sure progress is being made. Garden City's dog pound for a number of years has been a dilapidated shack a couple of miles south of town, just a stone's throw away from the city dump. It never has been much of a dog 'Jhotel" — but funds have always been limited. And other pnoblems have been much pressing. In recent months, however, the local humane group has set about to change the situation. The group has more than 100 members now, charging $1 per annual membership. Mrs. Eleanor Barker is president of the group, and Mrs. Betty Kells is vice president. Secretary is Mrs. Curtis Smith, and Mrs. Raymond Reed is treasurer. Also holding a key job as chairman of the building committee is Mrs. Earl Slawson. The group's regular monthly meeting comes up at 8 p.m. tomorrow at Civic Center. Building plans will be discussed, and club officials are hoping for a record turnout. The society meets the second Thursday of every month at Civic Center. With city approval members of the society have largely tak- The Weather Fair and unseasonably warm through Thursday; southerly winds 10-20; afternoon highs in the 80s; low$ in upper 50s to low 60s.

Gene Griggs is still city dog-catcher. He nabs the critters and turns them over to the dog pound. The society then takes care of the animals and the pound. That group has hired C.A. Hisey to take care of the present pound. He is retired, and formerly was employed at the experiment station and Valley View Cemetery. Hisey is paid $45 monthly for his duties. He feeds and waters the animals twice daily and also does cleanup chores at the pound. But society officers point up that it's a losing fight to try to keep the present pound clean. Money to pay the caretaker will be raised by monthly food sales by the society, and by other means. Last month's first sale raised some $40, and other fees made it possible to break even. Eight now, Hisey has to carry water out to the dogs, for there is no outlet in that area. Members of the society also keep some animals in their homes until they can be "farmed out." The present pound has a major problem with flies and rats, since it is so close to the city dump. It's not a pretty sight. The building is also infested with fleas from the dogs .It has a sand floor and drafty pens. Inside is a narrow walkway that is virtually impossible to keep clean. Society members are vitally concerned with getting the new animal shelter ready before winter sets in. Keeping the dogs warm at the present site is a major problem. New location is a > 50xlOO-foot lot leased from the cit'y for just one dollar annually. The society will build a 16x24 structure there of concrete blocks. The site is on an historic location: a circular depression that was a spring in the "old days." From the site, a canal and lagoon once led east along the south edge of the fairgrounds. It went under what is now S. Main, then back into the Arkansas River. Years ago, the old lagoon was used for ice skating, boating, and the like, Right now, tihe depression is being filled in and leveled. Johnnie Landgram, fairgrounds superintendent, is doing much of the work. He's a member of the society, too. Smith Sand already has hauled in 200 yards Of dirt at no cost. About 200-300 yards more are needed — and society members are asiking anyone having dirt to bring it out there. Foundations for the building are. to be run soon, and the building will be raised. Volunteer help may be used for much of that, cutting the cost to about $650. A cottonwood tree and a locust will shade the building. The buildi- ing will have a 4-foot walkway down the middle with three kennels on each side. Concrete floors will be used for easy cleaning. An isolation ward i s also planned for sick or injured diogs, plus a supply room and a bath room. , The latter room will be a "must" for incoming animals. They will be dunked in disinfectant to get rid of fleas and other parasites. A gas line runs just 200 feet south, so it will be tapped for heat. Warm water, luckily, is easily available. It comes from Wheatland Electric. For years that water was run into the river. Recently it was tapped and brought east to irrigate several fields of hay and alfalfa for zoo feed. Gifford-Hill- Western volunteered to connect the "doghouse" to the water line. Wednesday, the old pound had a greyhound,, two collies, and three ''mixtures." Last month, the society placed 33 dogs in new homes — and most went out of town. They "stayed even" for the month, placing every incoming animal. Many dogs go to farmers — who also take as many as 1042 cats at a time to combat mice and rats. Cats will also be used round the new animal shelter to keep rats away. The society is seeking donations to help with its project. Any such donatioas can be given to Mrs. Barker. 401 6th. Her phone is BRidge 6-5207. New Angle For Annual Debate Tourney Twenty-two high schools have registered to participate in the 12Ch annual invitational debate tournament at Garden City High School Friday and Saturday, Debate Coach Dean Nolte said 56 two/sipeaker teams will take part in the event. Schools entering are as far east as Emporia and Derby but most are Southwest Kansas students. Nolte said the tournament will be conducted in a slightly different manner than the regular events. He explained that five preliminary rounds will be given followed by quarter-finals, semifinals and finals. "This is the first time a tournament using Preliminary rounds and quarter finals has been tried in Kansas," Nolte »aid. Trophies will be presented first, second and third place winners. Plaques will go to the fourth place contestants. ' Garden City debaters will be hosts to tfhe visiting debaters at a dance at the Civic Center Fri day night. Nolte also said some of the local motels are offering special rates to the students. Local debaters plan to put out the "Welcome" flags and paint "Welcome Debaters" on all the highway entrances leading in to Garden City, officials permitting. Sharon VanVleet, one of the loval debaters, sadd the- signs were painted on the highway entrances to Russell and "really, gave us all a welcome feeling." Bit of Summer Weather Here T-OPEKA (AP) — The weather forecast for Kansas sounds as if summer is attempting to stage a comeback. Forecasters said temperatures today were expected to climb to 85-90 with little change anticipated Thursday. The Weather Bureau said there doesn't seem to be any major change in sight. Temperatures are expected to remain above normal the remainder of the week with perhaps some cooling by the weekend. Patches of fog and low cloudiness covered much of the state this morning but these were clearing away try mid morning. The forecast called for similar conditions Thursday morning otherwise it is scheduled to be fair to partly cloudy through Thursday with temperatures continuing warm. A weak cold front is expected to stall across northern Kansas tonight. Partly cloudy skies should be associated with the front, while the fog and low cloudiness will be to the south. Winds were expected to reach 20-25 miles per hour from the south today, bringing increased humidity. WASHINGTON (AP) — The American taxpayer pamiitily will have to pay a share of tide bill if prisoner^ taken in the abortive Cuban invasion are released. Members of Congress who have been kepit up to date on the progress of negotiations between New York attorney James B. Donovan and Prime Minister Fidel Castro for an exchange of 1,113 men captured in the April 1961 fiasco indicated they expect emergency funds to be used. There have been reports that the Central Intelligence Agency would come up with some of the money. But-a Congress member in a position to know said he does not believe any final decision has been made. Castro has asked for payment of $62 million for release of the prisoners. Donovan is attempting to work out an agreement for the furnishing of'food and medicine to Cuiba in return for their release. Some members of Congress said they do not believe a private organization such as the Cuban Prisoners Committee could come close to raising any such sum as $62 million or could assemble food and medicine valued at that amount. This leads them to the assumption that government supplies and money will be utilized to seal any barter bargain. Castro postponed a scheduled meeting with Donovan Tuesday, informed sources reported. They said Castro put off the session so he could welcome Cuban President Osvaldo Dorticos back from the United Nations. Darticos declined comment when asked about the prisoner situation before his departure from New York. State Department press officer Lincoln White said no agreement had been reached, but negotiations were continuing. A word of caution was injected by informed Washington sounces into speculation that the prisoners release was imminent. These sources said there still wer e some possible barriers to an agreement and warned that premature disclosure of negotiation details could make those barriers more difficult to surmount. Havana sources had said that only one final meeting between Donovan and Castro stood in the way of the prisoners' liberation. They said Donovan had arranged for the prisoners' air transportation to Miami. There was every reason to believe Kennedy and other high officials hoped the negotiations would be successful. The White House in the past has looked with approval on efforts to free the prisoners. But the Kennedy administration has taiken extraordinary precautions to cloak any activities in which it has engaged in connection with the negotiations. Sources report the President never has discussed the matter with congressional leaders at frequent White House sessions. With a few scattered exceptions, Senate and House members profess to be completely in the dark on what is going on. U.S. Launches Secret Satellite LOS ANGELES (AP)—Another secret U.S. satellite has been launched. A terse Air Force announcement Tuesday said: "A satellite employing a Thor-Agena booster combination was launched today by the Air Force from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif." The combination is used by the Discoverer satellite series, which tests instruments for the Midas and Samos sky spy satellites. Kennedy Signs Drug Bill for Tighter Controls To Set Up Store-keeper Operation in Electrical, Water Departments WASHINGTON (AP)-^President Kennedy today signed a new drug bill which he said would help to provide safe and more effectiva drugs to the American people. , Standing by in his White House office were legislators who had helped push through the bill clamping tighter controls on production and sales of prescription drugs. With them was Dr. Frances (). Kelsey, the Food and Drug Administration medical officer whose vigorous stand prevented the introduction of the dangerous drug thalidomide into the American market. Kennedy signed the bill with a number of pens and gave the first to Sen. Estes Kefauver, D-Tenri., whom he praised for long hearings in tlie drug field which were the basis for many of the reforms in the new bill. Rep. Oren, Harris, D-Ark., who had neaded a Hovse committee probing drugs, was at home ill today.'. . • ' '1 The measure, in line with Kennedy's recommendations, is de. signed primarily to provide additional protection against unsafe or ineffective drugs. These are the basic provisions: 1. The Food and Drug Administration will receive new powers' for factory inspection and quality control. All drug manufacturers will have to register with the 'government. 2. A new drug will have to be proved effective as well as safe and cannot be marketed without specific approval of the secretary of welfare. 3. The secretary can order-va drug off the market instantly if there is evidence it is unsafe. 4. All antibiotics for human consumption will have to be tested on a batch-by-batch basis for strength and purity. Previously, only five antibiotics were required to undergo such a rigid inspection. 5. Drug manufactuers will have to list "in brief summary" in their advertising any 6ad side effects of any prescription drug. 6. The manufacturers will have to print a common or generic name for a drug on the label in type at least half as large as its trade name. 7. Physicians will be required to obtain the consent of patients before giving them experimental drugs, unless the physician determines this would not be feasible or not in the patient's interest. Two City Departments to Be Appraised A complete appraisal of all properties in the city's electrical and water departments, along with the setting-up of a store-keeper operation for this equipment, was given the go- ahead this morning by the City Commission. A contract with A.C. Kirkwood and Associates, Engineers and Consultants, Kansas City, was approved. The firm will make -he appraisal and work with city administrators in accounting for all the equipment. Such a move had been requested several months ago by the Commission. It was fe't that under the present system, not enough control was exercised over the materials in these departments, and that a complete inventory was not kept current. In addition, no depreciation schedule had been set up for the equipment in these departments. The engineering firm, which contracted to do the complete job for $6,900, is expected to start work soon, and will have a preliminary report by February, and final completion at the end of March. Tom Kirkwood appeared before the Commission this morning to present his firm's proposal. Three requests were referred to the Planning Commission. One is the rezoning of the Kerfoot property on the northeast corner of 3rd and Kansas from residential to business, and the other is the widening of Miller in the block south of tl.? Courthouse. Ken Kisner, representing an oil firm, appeared on behalf of the Keri'oot rezoning. He said his client plans to construct a service station on that corner. Commissioners, who were asked to ! call a rezoniny hearing on their own motion, had no objection but felt a recommendation om the planners should be made first. Finney County Commissioners requested the widening of Mil| ler by moving the math curb . line back to the south side of the ' existing sidewalk. There was no objection voiced to this but again 1 it was referred to the planners. I Another matter which will be i given to the planning group is j the possibility of making a north| south street or streets arterial i right-of-ways between Fulton and i Kansas. i This came up after Ed Porter, owner of Read y-Mix Concreet Co., asked if some routing of his j trucks could be made other than j just Main or the US50 by-pass. : Under present ordinance, trucks | weighing over two tons are not permitted to use streets except those serving as state and federal highways. However, for lo- I cal deliveries, these vehicles can I use the streets absolutely necessary. Porter said with new construction north of Kansas, his tracks ! have to make many trips from the plant south of E. Fulton to the north, and due to congestion on Main and the distance on the by-pass route, would prefer a I different route — such ai north on 4th. These trucks had used 4th in the past, but police ha . been ; enforcing the truck ordinance i and recently ordered a cement I truck off that street. | J.A. Doubrava, 6th district en- I gineer of the State Highway | Commission, informed the com- j mission by letter tiiis morning that the banner advertising the park, pool, and zoo which this | summer had been across Fulton i at 4th, was violating state law. I City Manager Deane Wiley said 1 the sign had been removed. ] In other action, the commis: sion: 1 — Accepted petition for sanitary sewer construction between Spruce and Chestnut and east of Anderson. 2 — Approved curb and gutter i construction contracts with the • P.L. Dale Construction Co., and i paving contracts with the Harwood Construction Co., for Edwards from 3rd to Old Manor; I Pinecrest from Edwards to Johnson; Parkwood from Edwards to Johnson; Old Manor from Harding to Edwards; and Godfrey ; from Spruce to north end of Godfrey. 3 — Approved contract and ' lease with Clay Weldon for pas- ture land at the Garden City Airport. 4 — Gave Humane Society permission to proceed with construction of an animal shelter, but held up agreement with city until final draft by the city attorney. 5 — Passed resolution parking meters on the west side of 8th street in the 200 block — across from the new city parking lot. 6 — Approved an agreement with Art Wilson for use of the old armory building -vithout cost by boxers training fo- Golden Gloves fights. Tliis is for use only when the building isn't rent- j ed by other groups. I 7 — Appointed Ray Caliban, Jr., to the library board to fill the vacancy created by the death : of P.H. Phillips. : 8 — Gave permission to City ; Manager Wiley to attend the In- j ternational City Managers Assn. meeting in Philadelphia next j week. He was to leave late today. City Clerk Charles Peebles was appointed acting manager during Wiley's absence.
