Garden City Telegram Vol. 33 GARDEN CITY, KANSAS, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1962 8 Page* No. 308 reported today was loss of one small military outpost r . the Ti Near the Burmese border, the Chinese were reported still on the betan border in the center of the outskirts of Walong . North East Frontier Agency. With American and British weapons to be rushed here by air, a feeling of confidence swept the nation and shook it out of the despair created by a series of retreats since the Communists launched their offensive Oct. 20. Major battles appeared to be garden- ing . . . Today's report of a cougar (see story this page) being sighted in the area is the most unusual message about wild game, but tie pheasants are still making their pre-season forays into town. Mrs. Lynn Holmes, 618 N. 13th, said a hen pheasant called at her house last week. The bird walked around her yard, up and down the sidewalk, through the flower bed and then right up to the front door. It finally flew away as Mrs. Holmes was taking a picture of it. We also had a call last week that some brown-colored birds were making a strange noise outside a home here. From the description, the birds apparently were quail, which seldom venture into town. A small brochure put out by Central Airlines on behalf of the new flight which originates each morning in Garden City has a map showing the route of the flight across Kansas. It shows the flight in a straight Jine from Dodge City to Great Send, with Garden City in the middle, and has the flight originating at Dodge instead of Gar' den. According to the map, Dodge Is located about where Garden should be, and Garden is in the vicinity of Jetmore. But the schedule on the brochure is correct, and now Garden City has an eastbound Central Airlines flight leaving here each morning at 5:48, and another new flight which leave s Kansas City at 9 :15 p.m. and arrives here at 12:46 a.m. The other two flights which have been serving here will continue on a 7-day a week basis instead of six. Pointing out some one else's mistake requires u s to admit one of our own. On yesterday's front page, the weather report came under the heading of "Garden Sass" while Gus Garden's daily message came out as "weather."^ This brought a card, addressed to Gu s Garden, which stated: "After that boo-boo in the paper last night, it might be said that you can't tell your "Sass" from the weather report." And we can't vouch for accuracy of either. * * * Tomorrow's Telegram will roll out the welcome mat to the teachers who will be coming in tomorrow and Thursday for the annual sectional meeting of the Kansas State Teachers Assn.

Much of the advertising copy will carry a welcome message to the visitors. CD Plan to Be Changed TOPEKA (AP)—Revision of the On the Ladakh front, 1,000 miles to the west, the Indian government acknowledged the fall of Demchok and nearby Jara Pass to the Chinese Saturday. A government spokesman said it was by and large untrue that Indian troops fighting in 3-mile altitude on the Ladakh front were inadequately clothed against winter. The government conceded that the troops there and elsewhere lack sufficient rapid-fire weapons to repel the Chinese attacks. Responding quickly to an Indian plea for assistance, the. United States is expected to start sending modern infantry weapons by the end of this week. New demands arose for the resignation of Defense Minister V.K. Krishna Menon, blamed by critics for the inadequacy of the military equipment with which the Indian army faced the first Chinese onslaughts in th e 10-day-old border war. A year ago, Menon blocked efforts by top generals to turn to the United States for weapons. Opposition to Menon is becoming so strong within the ruling Congress party that some observers think Prime Minister Nehru may have to fire his closest associate. So far, Nehru has pushed Menon into the background and taken over most of his duties. In a speech Monday, Nehru said: "We had been conditioning ourselves not to think of war and all our operations had been directed to the development of our economy." In contrast, he said, Red China prepared for war and has the world's largest army. Two planeloads of rapid-fire weapons have arrived from Britain as the beginning of a purchased order. Canada has also promised to provide military supplies. France has been asked, but its response has not been reported. The British Commonwealth was sharply criticized by Rhodesian Federal Premier Sir Roy Welensky for "not rushing to assist India to ward off the Chinese invasion." Mild Weather To Sf ay Around TQPEKA (AiP)—Generally clear skies and moderate temperatii* ss will continue in Kansas for the next couple of days. A new cold front edged into northwest Kansas early today but it was not believed enough to prevent some warming. Highs were predicted for 65 to 70 degrees in the north to about 75 in the southwest. Lows tonight will range from about 35 to 40 degrees. Highs monday were from 54 at Pittsburg, where there were clouds, to 70 at Hill City and Goodland. Early morning lows were from 35 at Topeka and Abilene to 44 at Hill City and Concordia. US Lifts Blockade, Aerial Surveillance During U.N. Parley I WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States aerial ! surveillance of Cuba, as well as its arms blockade, has been stopped for the two clays during which acting U.N. Secretary U Thant is conferring in Havana.

A faint smile flickered over Queen Elizabeth's face. "No, sir," Hope continued, "in America we have just two classes —the people and the Kennedys." The queen glanced at her husband, Prince Philip, and smiled. "And there are more Kennedys than people," Hope continued after the laughter subsided. Elizabeth threw back her head and laughed out loud. The occasion was the annual Royal Variety Performance which raised $126,000 for the Variety Artistes Benevolent Fund. The queen appeared just as amused when Hope said: "President Kennedy's from Massach- setts, you know. He's going to which opens here Thursday morning. Tomorrow's meeting, to be in the Little Theater, will transact all business for the KSTA sectional meeting. This includes the election of a vice-president for the 1963 meeting in Dodge City, and the election of a classroom teacher to the Board of Directors for a 3-year term as provided in the new constitution. and low Mass." Critic Fergus Cushin commented in the daily sketch: "Why was the queen given the head and laugh happily at jokes >aibout the Kennedy family? "Is there some hope here for the future of satire in our theaters?" i Jokes about the royal family are banned from the British stage. Recently the lord 'chamberlain, Britain's censor, banned satirical skits about the Kennedys from an American revue playing in London. The evening was a sentimental triumph for 78-year-old Sophie Tucker, a longtime London favorite who starred in the first Royal Variety Performance in 1934 before Queen Elizabeth's grandparents, King George V and Queen Mary. The audience gave her one of the loudest and longest ovations in the history of the annual vaudeville event. Tears streaked the veteran American entertainer's makeup as she acknowledged the cheers and applause and blew a kiss to the royal box. "I was thrilled," Queen Elizabeth told Miss Tucker afterward. Thant left New York this forenoon for the critical negotiations in Cuba with Premier Fidel Castro. Sylvester had no report on the results of aerial reconnaissance flights carried out by U.S. planes Monday. But he had, a further explanation of the delaying in analyzing the reconnaissance photographs. He said he morning with had top talked this officials in charge of analysis of the pictures. Sylvester said he now could say: "Analysis of aerial pictures entails a meticulous review of the material disclosed and a painstaking comparison of that materi- opportunity to throw back her | "You were wonderful." Four Garden City Youths Hurt in Crash Four Garden Citians were injured — three seriously — in a one-car crash 28 miles northeast of Garden City at 7:30 a.m. today. In St. Catherine Hospital are Robert Etigene Farr, 19, son of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Farr. Rt. 1, driver of the car; .Arthur Eugene Fief, 18, son of Mr. and Mrs. James Fief, 907 Jenny; and Ronald J. Biecker, 21, son of Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Biecker, 506 Bancroft. i Larry Bicket, 16, son of Mr. and Mrs. John H. Bicket, Gardendale, was treated in the emergency room for a severe laceration to his ear. He was dismissed. Attending physicians said Farr suffered a dislocated right elbow, lacerations to his neck and bruises to his chest. He is listed in "fair" condition. Fief is suffering from bruises and contusions. The physician in charge said x-rays show he has no fractured bones, He was admitted for observation. Biecker suffered a fractured vertebra, lacerations to his face and contusions to his knee. Finney County Sheriff Wendle Meier and Deputy Wallace Bascue investigated the accident. Meier said the brakes on the car failed, causing Farr to lose control of the vehicle on a curve. The car careened across the gravel road, into the ditch and crashed in to a high embankment. The car was a total loss. According to Meier, Farr was pinned in the car. Workers at the scene pried off the left door to free the youth. No charges have been filed. al with previously obtained material in order to obtain accurate findings. One has to be careful about making conclusions because there are certain evaluation procedures to be observed in order to insure accuracy of the results obtained. "All of this takes time, despite published reports to the contrary. "In addition, the time since Chairman Khrushchev's message of Sunday morning is too short to allow us to expect conclusive evidence." Soviet Premier Nfkita Khrushr chev promised in that message that Soviet missile bases in Cuba would be dismantled. Sylvester would not elaborate; but the meaning of his statement seemed to be simply that the Defense Department does not yet know whether dismantling work has been started. He was asked by a reporter if the United States were not taking a chance in suspending surveillance for two days. Sylvester replied that "every move that ha s been taken has been taken with consideration of all contingencies." He was also as.ked about the disclosure Monday night by an informed government source that two Soviet submarines had been detected and had surfaced in the quarantine-ipatrolled waters. In response Sylvester observed that Secretary of Defense Robert S.

The Pentagon's expert photo interpreters were expected to finish studying pictures taken Monday in surveillance flights over Cuba. These flights were intended to gather photographic evidence of whether the Russians yet are living up to Khrushchev's pledge to take down the missile bases menacing the United States. Asst. Secretary of Defense Arthur Sylvester told reporters late Monday that all aircraft had returned safely from flights made during the day.
