Highlight of the Nov. 3 event will be a free dinner— with baked beans. What else? Hamilton County agent Dick Golladay says part of his job is to make a wildlife surv e y. He has set Nov. 10 as the date for the job — when pheasant season opens. Homer Davis who lives south of Syracuse, has been bestowing yellow meated watermelons on some of his friends and neighbors. Until they had 'been sampled, some of Homer's friends thought he had run in a pumpkin on them. He explained that he grows a different variety of watermelon on his patch — "somewhere" down on Bear Creek. Homer said he would rather keep the exact location of the watermelon patch secret just in case someone decided to organize a raid. Such a thing has been known to happen.

Red 'Snooper' Ships Cover U.S. Test Area HONOLULU (AP)Three Il k .ti- sian ships bristling with electronic instruments have moved inside the Johnston Island test area, presumably to snoop on the United States' rocket-borne nuclear blast scheduled for Sunday night. A spokesman for Joint Task Force 8, conducting the test, said the missile range ships—the Sibir, Suchan and Sakhalin—appeared two days a'go on the western fringe of the U.S. restricted area. The ships are moving in a southeasterly direction, headed toward a point southwest of Hawaii. U.S. Navy patrol planes notified the ships they were inside the zone, a task force spokesman said but the Russians "manifested little concern." Because the U.S. nuclear test zone is in international waters, the United'States cannot force the Russian ships to leave. During high-altitude nuclear tests last summer, the Soviets stationed a hydro-meteorological research ship and two smaller electronic-equipped vessels near the test area. Sunday's planned test is a continuation of the "Operation Dominic" series which began last April at Christmas Island ^nd was halted July 25 when a •• cket exploded on the launch pad. The explosion inflicted heavy damage on test facilities and halted testing for two months. The series resumed last week with twu low-altitude shots dropped from airplanes. The United Stales plans lo explode the equivalent of less tlun a million tons of TNT—"submeg- aton"—at an altitude of 30 to 40 miles on Sunday night. Sunday's planned detonation will be the 30th of the current series, including plane-dropped shots at Christmas and Johnston. Council Postpones Commission Vote VATICAN CITY (AP)—Europe, an cardinals, brought the first working session of the Horn an Catholic Ecumenical Council to an abrupt close today with a swift move to head off what one informant called automatic election to the council's commissions. The meeting of the 2,700 council fathers in St. Peter's Basilica lasted only an hour, half of it taken up by Mass. The fathers were supposed to have started voting for 160 members of 10 working commissions which will debate the far-ranging issues Pope John i XXIII has listed to be studied. ! But a communique issued after the meeting said the council fa- • thers, without starting to vote, ! agreed to a motion to adjourn un; til Tuesday in order to give coun- ' cil participants a chancu to ac, quire "a better knowledge of the I candidates." | The council fathers are cardinals, patriarchs, archbishops and bishops who come i'rom the far \ corners oC the earth. j Achille Cardinal Lienart, bishop , of Lille, France, made the motion, the communique said. Joseph Car. t dinal Frings, archbishop of Cologne, seconded it. Cardinal Fings, an informant reported, said he also was seconding the motion on behalf of Bernard Jan A 1 f r i n k, archbishop of Utrecht, Holland; Julius Doepf ner, archbishop of Munich; and Fnanjiskus Koenig, archbishop [ of Vienna. i ! The source said the council scc- 1 retariat had' distributed lists of i suggested candidates to the coun- j cil fathers. This informant addc I ' that Cardinal Lienart declared :: i all the suggested candidates were well known to all bishops. Many bishops wer c reported planning to assemble toni 0 hl in national groups to discuss candidates they would like to see on the commissions.
