Battle Waxes Hot Amid Motor Carriers By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP)—The competitive fight between the various form* of for-hlre transportation- rails, trucks, planes, barges, pipe, line*—wiiet it«adily. But just as heated at times is the battle over the inroads into the field by private carriage. The growth of private hauling of -goods and supplies over the nation's highways may have added to traffic jams to your annoyance. It also has raised the tempers of the regulated carriers. Who is getting h -i and how much? And why do some business firms turn to their own trucks while others stick to for-hire transportation? • A research team of the Transportation Center at Nortlnvestern University, Evanston, 111., fed into a computer the rep! es of 1,100 manufacturers to their queries on the subject. The answers may shed some light on i. controversy noted for generating heat. • The unregulated motor carriers, have grown faster the war j than the regulated carriers as a ; whole. But the team sa. a that, in j terms of tonnaje, the common motor carriers have grown about j as fast as havp corporations' own fleets of trucks, even though j trucking firms think otherwise. '• And the replies indicate the real i battle has been between these | two, the for-hire an; 1 tl.? do-it- • yourself motor haulers. Firms using their own trucks tend to con- i centratn on short-haul movements of freight, and thus compete less than som c may think with the rails, which get their big volume on the longer than 200-mile freight movement. But the volume of private carriage is growing. The .Airvey shows one-third of the firms replying increased their use of private carriage in proportion to their total tonnage in recent years, while 23 per cent did not, and the remainder kept about the same proportion.

By Jimmy Hado | Altogether about 32 per cent of motor freight tonnages moved by private carriage in 1961, according to the replies. The private fleets were mostly modest—59 per cent of the firms used four or fewer vehicles. The biggest uj« of private fleets was in the food indus'. '.es. Such usage was reported by less than a third of those -i the instrument, electrical machinery, leather, textile and apparel industries. Firms using their awn trucks to haul their supplies gave three situations in which tht,, find this most profitable: 1. When prices charged by supplier are greater than private costs of production; 2. When the firm wants a certain quality of goods or service not offered by suppliers; and 3. When the firm desires managerial control over the supply of some productive input. The Transportation Center plan a private conference the end of this month to discuss the ,'indings and tlie problems. CU Daily Editor Fired BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - The editor of the University of Colorado's student daily newspaper, who printed attacks on Sen. Barry Gold'vvater, R-Ariz., and former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, was fired by the unive"sity president Wednesday.. In announcing the dismissal of Gary Althen, 21, a senior, President Quigg Newton said the editor "had displayed a pattern of editorial irresponsibility that required his removal." "I'm not sure this is in the best interests of the university," said Althen. Both Newton and Althen had apologized to Sen. Goldwater for publication of a critical article written by Carl Mitcham, 21, a philosophy student from Dallas, Tex. After Althen was warned by university officials to exercise better judgment, he wrote an editorial advocating admission of Communist China to the United Nations. President Newton also appointed three deans to the board of publications, which controls the newspaper. The board then named Jon Kolomitz, journalism senior from La Junta, Colo., as interim editor, Kolomitx had been executive editor of the daily. W DIDJA HAPPEN 1 TO SEE THESE I CLIPPINGS ABOUT] MV BOV?

Off-Course Missile Demolishes Itself Another Life Term for Man LEAVBNWORTH, Kan. (AP)Bobby Joe Spencer, once spared from hanging for murder, has been sentenced to another life term on his plea of guilty to slaying a fellow convict at the Kansas State Prison last April 30. Spencer, 23, pleaded guilty before Judge Kenneth Harmon in Leavenworth County District Court Wednesday. Spencer, who has the manner of a meek bookkeeper, stafoibed to death Clarence Biles of Salina, Kan., with a kitchen knife stolen from the prison dining room at Lansing, Kan. Spencer said Biles had been talking about him. Spencer's life was spared by former Gov. George Docking on April 12, 1960, after he spent 10 months in the death house at Lansing. Judge Harmon orr'ered the sentence to run concurrently with the present life term, but Spencer's guilty plea likely would weigh against any request for clemency.

(AP) —A Minuteman missile, off course and headed for the Florida mainland, destroyed itself on signal from the range safety officer seconds after launching from an underground silo Wednesday night. The S'pectacular blast rained chunks of flaming debris over a wide area and a Jupiter missile was severely damaged. A photographer was injured slightly while racing to safety.

Walter Lewis, a documentary photographer recording the launching from a mile away, fell fr,">m a platform as he scurried for safety. It was thought at first he had broken a leg, but examination showed he was only cut, bruised and shaken up. No pieces of the Minuteman landed near him. By DANIEL F. CUFF HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) -- "I think it's wonderful," sa'ys Mrs. Robert L. Devaux, wife of a fireman in East Hartford. "We see good movies, and it's a lot cheaper and easier than going out." "The programming is very disgusting," comments Luis Walker of Farmington, an investment firm manager. "A lot of my friends are disappointed. Why don't they get foreign films instead of those mediocre movies?" They and some 1,000 other residents of the Hartford area are paying to participate in a television experiment. RK-0 General, Inc., and the Zenith Radio Corp. are spending $10 million to see whether pay television will pay off. The three-year, test began June 29 under heavy shelling from its opponents, theater owners and commercial broadcasters. Last week tihe U.S. Supreme Court rejected without comment an appeal by theater owners who sought to end the Hartford experiment. The Federal Communications Commission had authorized the Hartford test, reasoning that the public should decide what use it wants made of the airways. With a legal green light, the experiment now faces the harshest of critics, the paying public. RXO General is using its Hartford affiliate, an ultra high frequency station on Channel 18, to conduct the test. There are about 30 hours of pay television weekly. The viewers so far have been fed a heavy diet of movies, interspersed with some exclusive showings. The movies are called "subsequent first run" films. In other words, they have played at large downtown theaters perhaps two weeks before Channel 18 gets them. The exelusives included the Patterson-Liston heavyweight championship fight broalcast live, the Kingston Trio taped live at a summer theater, a foreign-made film of Shakespeare's "Midsummer Night's Dream," done with Pag* 3 Garden Ctty Telegram Thursday, October 18, 1962 A fiery chunk of the shattered rocket plummeted onto a launch complex containing a Jupiter missile.
