Section C—Page Eight PEOPLE ... She Goes 'Phhh'; Things Happen Christmas on Marrow-Bone Ridge EL PASO HERALD-POST, Friday, December 7, 1962- ] From The Herald-Post ' News Services ', With a simple "phhh," Mrs, Ady Jacobs can change stations on her television set. ; She didn't know about it until yesterday when she called her cat. The television set changed to another channel. "I don't whistle 'tweet'," Mrs. Jacob said. "I suck in air and go 'phhh'." The set is rigged for remote control, but Mrs. Jacobs does not have the remote unit. A television repairman solved the puzzle. It is not so unusual he said. "This remote control set is operated by a high-frequency sound," said Serviceman Dwight Furse. "A dog whistle can do it, or sometimes you can change stations by jingling some keys up close to the set." He offered to adjust the set so a "phhh" would not change ft. But Mrs. Jacobs wanted things just the way they were. • —Eleven-year-oId E rv i ng Yancy was a celebrity at school today. His swollen lip gave him a front row seat yesterday to a real holdup. Home from school because of his lip, Erving made his usual candy sortie to a nearby market. While weighing the relative merits of the different candies, three men who were armed entered the store and demanded that Mrs. Elizabeth Wicker!, 50, turn over the contents of the cash register. "They took about this much." said Erving, his fingers indicating a two-inch stack of bills. Mrs. Wickert estimated the haul at $100. The men then forced Mrs. Wickert and her husband. John, into a cooler in the rear of the store. "They told me let 'em out after 10 minutes." Erving said. "But I just waited until they were gone." . Greek Shipping Magnate Aristotle Onassis returned to Monaco yesterday, ending an absence of several months from the principality. Onassis and American Opera Singer Maria Callas sailed into port aboard his private yacht "Christina." . Former ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy, father of the president, arrived from New York yesterday for his annual winter visit in West Palm Beach, Fla. Kennedy, who suffered a stroke here last December, was in a wheel chair when he was driven to his Palm Beach estate. He was met by Mrs. Ethel Kennedy, wife of Attorney Gen. Robert F. Kennedy, and a number of his grandchilden. Kensington Palace announced yesterday that Princess Alexandra is making "very good progress" following the removal of impacted wisdom teeth. She was operated on here in London last Wednesday. *A 650-pound black bear, possibly the largest ever killed in North America, was shot by a professional guide in the Adirondack Mountains, the Conservation Department disclosed yesterday. Robert Avery. a guide and hotel owner at Arietta, brought down the huge bruin witih a single shot. Conservation officials, viewing the 562 pound dressed bulk of the animal, said it was the largest black bear killed since they had been keeping records. The animal measured one inch under six feet from tip of nose to tip of tail officials said. It took Avery two days to drag the carcas 4.5 miles out of the wilderness. He reported seeing tracks made by even larger bears. JOSEPH O'DONNELL of Lincoln. Neb., forgot he had let his cat have the car. He told police to call off their search for his stolen car after he remembered he parked it in his garage so the auto's engine would keep his son's kitten warm. In time the sick ones got well and the doctor got lots of firewood. "Christmas doesn't meon much to oilin' folks," join 1 Magoon, the leprechaun. "Christmas, Mister Magoon?" said Danny, "And why not?" replied the leprechoun.
