5 Killed in Nebraska Tornadoes Hit Areas in 6 Slates By United Preii International Late spring tornadoes devastated Cof Pennsylvania, Nebraska and West . nla, killing at least 6 persons, injuring scores of others and leaving thousands homeless. -In Grand Island, Nebraska's third largest city, at least five people wefre killed when a series of tornadoes swept through Tuesday night, leveling most of the business district, tearing roofs from at least four apartment complexes d trapping residents in their homes with downed power lines and collapsing walls. Most electricity, gas and water were shut off throughout the city of 32,000. Hospitals neared capacity with injured and utility crews were out in full force trying to fix power lines and stop gas leaks. TORNADOES ALSO RIPPED through southern Ohio and Maryland, injuring several people. High winds snapped power lines in Washington, Virginia and Maryland. Thunderstorms whipped by 60 mph winds crashed into New York at rush hour Tuesday, toppling utility poles and snarling traffic for millions of commuters. Flights at local airports were delayed for up to an hour by the storms. In Pennsylvania, heavy Tains accom panied by winds of up to 65 mph hit the eastern part of the state, cutting off electricity to M.OUflt'miadelphia residents and claiming the life of Steven Paolino, 27, who was killed when a4ree struck by lightning fell on him. Nine tornadoes destroyed more than 250 mobile homes and injured some 150 persons in what the National Weather Service called the "largest tornado outbreak ever" in western Pennsylvania. ONE OF THE HARDEST HIT areas was Apollo, Pa., in Armstrong County. "It took about 50 (mobile) homes," said Rich Cappo of Apollo. "Thirty of these are completely destroyed. Some of those homes are stacked three high," In Kiski Valley, about 25 miles from downtown Pittsburgh, more than 200 mo bile homes were toppled over -and some 15 homes damaged. "It's a disaster area," an eyewitness said. "Trailers are strewn around like matchsticks." A 35-mlle-wide thunderstorm spawned at least four and up to seven twisters in Grand Island within a three-hour period, said a National Weather Service meteorol-" ogist. Millions of dollars in property damage was reported and more than 1,000 people were left homeless. About 27 persons were reported missing. AT LEAST EIGHT PERSONS were injured, including four members of one family, when a tornado stormed through Preston County in West Virginia. Gov. John D. Rockefeller IV announced plans to view the area by air after calling in the National Guard. Police said the tornado touched down at least five separate times in the West Virginia communities of Reedsville and Kingwood, destroying at least three houses and seven mobile homes. NO SHOPPING TODAY j- A tornado that struck Natrona despite heavy damage, only a few store employees and shoppers Heights, Pa., Tuesday leftffc shopping center a shambles but, were injured slightly. (UPI Telephoto) Symphony Strings Really Can 'Sing' By JEAN PRATHER Viva Editor String section of the Colum-. bus Symphony Orchestra presented a free concert Tuesday night in the sanctuary of the First Christian Church and one of the finest local musical experiences this writer can remember. Traditionally, the strings first and second violins, viola, cello and bass are the heart of an orchestra, blending with the distinctive sounds of other instruments, woodwinds, brass and percussion. When the musicians - about 50 in the local .orchestra .conducted by Dale Spurlock play as a separate unit there is lyrical blending of like sounds of different weights and depths. That overworked cliche "singing strings" really does apply. The soft lighting, inspirational setting and fine acoustics of the world-renowned church added to the Tuesday night experience. There was a feeling of intimacy between the musicians and the audience much too small for such a fine concert. The church organ, played by Dan McKinley, church organist, provided low-key ac- Zoning Board OKs Variance One case heard Tuesday night by the Columbus Board of Zoning Appeals was ap- firoved, with another continued or proper advertisement. At its meeting in the county government office building. The board approved Brian Hittle's request for a variance to erect a garage 20 feet ahead of the average setback line at 3128 26th. The board continued. Dexter Mead's request for a variance to use a building at 1105 23rd for a wood, metal and furniture stripping business. That request will be heard next month after it is properly advertised. Rockcreek PTO Elects Officers Rockcreek Parent-Teacher Organization recently elected officers for the 1980-81 school year. The new officers are the Rev. Gerald Stump, president; Joyce Cremeans, vice president; Jenny Shaeffer, secretary; Debbie Hollinger, treasurer; and Robert Volland, reporter. companiment for some of the numbers for the hour-and-a-half program which was presented without intermission. The players displayed depth and balance in their musicianship; concentrated effort generously mixed with enjoyment was apparent in their performance. One of the highlights of the concert for this listener was the stirring Concerto for Two Violins in D Minor, by Bach, featuring Gloria Spurlock, orchestra concertmistress, and CathJ Spurlock, second violin principal, in the solo and duet passag-j-wr ... -j, The former is the daughter-in-law of Director Spurlock and principal second violinist with the Louisville Orchestra. Her husband, Dan Spurlock, is principal bass with the Louisville Orchestra. Cathy Spurlock is the daughter of the director. Another highlight was the charming Simple Symphony by Benjamin Britten. Each of the four segments are gems, but Playful Pizzicato provoked a ripple ot pleased sighs from the audience as it concluded. Others were Boistrous Bouree, Sentimental Saraband and Frolicsome Finale. Other numbers were Capriol Suite for String Orchestra in six parts, by Peter Warlock and Concerto Grosso in F Major, Op. 6, No. 6 by Arcangelo Corelli in five parts. At the conclusion of the concert, bouquets of roses were presented to the two youthful and attractive featured violinists and the entire group received a standing ovation. Granted there are many things to do on a fine June evening. Confession I almost did not attend the concert, slipping into a back row after the first number was begun. But soon I was caught up in the magic of light-hearted music and so glad that I had made the small effort to attend, This was the first concert presented by just the string section of the local orchestra and Director Spurlock indicated the possibility of more such concerts in his brief comments at the conclusion of the concert as he-thanked those in the audience for their faithful support. This music lover highly recommends any future concerts. The Columbus Symphony Orchestra is sponsored by Columbus Pro Musica with the support of the Driftwood Valley Arts Council, Indiana Arts Commission and National Endowment for the Arts.

A tape recording by the students recently received first place in a contest Taped Playlet Is Best sponsored by WGUC radio station in Cincinnati. This is the second consecutive year Mrs. Wingler's class has been awarded first place in the contest. Wayne Pupils Winners Again "Raving Red Riding Hood," a modern version of "Little Red Riding Hood" which was written, produced and recorded by fourth graders at Wayne School, has been awarded first place in the Primary Category of the 1980 Young . People's Radio Festival sponsored by WGUC radio station at the University of Cincinnati. This is the econd consecutive year the fourth grade class taught by Joanne Wingler has received first place in the contest. Cast members of the play were Kelly Bennett, Cori Davis, Shawn Dixon, Troy Hill, Chris Herr, Chris LeBrun, Fred McClain, Bev Quackenbush, Paul Robbins, Ronnie Rockwell, Jeff Rose and Tammy Roth. They will perform the play live at 9:05 a.m. Thursday on Columbus Radio Station WWWY. All members of the class assisted with writing of the play. Cast members, Mrs. Wingler, and Vera Brown, principal at Wayne, will travel to the university Tuesday to accept their $100 first place prize at a reception. The students, who will be fifth graders during the 1980-81 school year, plan to use the money for a field trip next year for all Wayne fifth grade students. WGUC received 120 tapes from more than 350 students in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana. The station will broadcast the tapes Sept. 6 and 13. The contest is for children aged 6 to 18 and is divided into three categories, primary for ages 6-10, junior for ages 11-14 and senior for ages 15-18. Judges are professional broadcasters. Mrs. Wingler said, "The students recorded the show using school equipment, and they operated the tape recorder themselves. The contest lets the students write, create and produce their own radio show." Cast members auditioned for the eight speaking parts on the six-minute taped playlet. Four students assisted with the recording equipment. All students helped write the play. "Each student wrote down who should say what," said Mrs. Wingler. "We looked it over and decided what to leave in and take out." Sound effects were emphasized for the recording. The project began with a discussion of radio and its history. The recording was completed in about three weeks. Mrs. Wingler said, "We were pressed for time, and some-of the kids gave up their free time at recess and lunch to work on the tape. There was not enough time in the regular school day." California Beats Jarvis' Proposition 9 SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) - California voters soundly rejected Howard Jarvis' Proposition 9 effort to cut state income taxes in half, but Jarvis insisted the tax rebellion spawned by his Proposition 13 two years ago is still . alive. j "We may have lost a battle but we will win the war," Jarvis told reporters at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles. "There is a revolution against taxation and it's sweeping across the United States." Jarvis promised to unveil today a new initiative aimed at cutflng government spending, which he said would be more appealing to voters than Propositions 9 or 13. Jarvis' old political buddy, Paul Gann, wort the Rppuhlicanjiomination for the U,S, Senate. He will challenge Democrat Alan Cranston, who is seeking his third term. Voters, unswayed by the sweeping campaign of landlords and real estate interests, spurned a Proposition 10, which would have .'limited rent controls. Courthouse Center Parking Limits To Be Relaxed Loading zone parking limitations on the north side of the Courthouse Shopping Center restricted to business hours only following action Tuesdaymorning by the Columbus Board of Works. Also at its meeting in city hall the board accepted bids for storm sewer and street improvements around the new city hall, approved a contract with Bell Telephone Co. for a Centrex 2 telephone system for the new building, endorsed a parking ban on- one side of all streets in Eastgate addition and authorized installation of "rumble strips" in the northbound lane of Washington Place just south of 37th Street. Delmar Kloekef, the city s coif suiting traffic engineer, recommend- j . ik. L.rJ that thn InaHinO zone only parking on the south side of Fourth from Washington to Brown be limited to 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays. Drivers would be a' le to use the area for parking after the hours when trucks normally make deliveries to the Courthouse center. KLOEKER EXPLAINED that the intent of the loading zone limitation Is to make the area available for trucks and other vehicles unloading merchandise to deliver to the stores in thn chnnnine renter, and not to Dro- vide parking for shoppers to load their packages from the center. He said parking for shoppers is available for" that purpose-on the Washington and Second streets sides of the center. Apparent low bidder on installation of storm sewers around the new city hall block and paving of the parking lot and streets around the building was Contractors United Inc. of Burn-sville Road. Total bid for the three separate parts of the contract offered by CUI was $204,899.60. Only other bidder was Columbus Gravel and Concrete Co., which bid a total of $225,464.04. Engineer's estimate on the project was $246,571.25. A contract is scheduled to be awarded at . next week's meeting, to be held at 10 a m on Wednesday in city hall, instead of on the regular Tuesday meeting date. , THE BOARD APPROVED a contract with Bell to install a Centrex 2 telephone system. Installation charge will be $2,401.85 and monthly service charge will be $2,404.10, which the board was told is about the same as the total monthly bill now paid by the various city departments for their individual telephone services. , Kloeker reported that several .1 Eastgate residents had written let ters and signed petitions in favor of banning parking on one side of the streets in the addition to provide for easier traffic flow. The board endorsed the idea and said it will be presented to the city council for action in two weeks. The board was told several drivers have failed to stop at 37th Street when driving north on the new Washington Place and have ended up in the front yards of residents on the north side of the street. Larger stop signs and Stop Ahead signs have not helped the situation, Kloeker said, and the board approved his recommendation to install rumble strips similar to those which formerly were located on Interstate 65 at 1-465 south of Indianapolis, although there would not be as many bumps, he said. Purpose of the strips is to warn-drivers of the coming -stop. THE BOARD APPROVED an amendment to the city's contract with Prudential Insurance Co. to pro-. vide additional life insurance coverage to city employees over 70 years of age. Sandra Luedeke of Indianapolis was given a peddler's permit to sell oil paintings in The Commons this Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. - . City Attorney Bruce Runnels told the board a report will be presented next week on what rental arrangements could be made on the Law Enforcement Building when the new city . hall is completed next year and the -police department moves from the LEB to the ground floor of the city hall. The board accepted the retirement of, police officer Garnet Buster, who has worked for the department 21. years, with the retirement effective on June 30. BRAD HILLMAN AND Ed Boston, two young Columbus men, asked the board's approval of a peddler's permit to solicit jobs painting house numbers on curbs around the city for $1 a house to raise money for college. The two were told of the provisions of the city Peddlers, Hawkers and Itinerant Merchants ordinance and about possible exceptions from the present $1,000 bond required for such merchants. The permit was approved sub-' ject to any new regulations the city council might make in regard to the ordinance, with the permit not becoming effective until after the changes are approved. The board accepted the (Streets and drainage in Pinebrooke addition ,oa North Central Avenue for perpetual maintenance by the city.

Lee Hamilton said in a newsletter from Washington this week." f Hamilton said the nation lacks a program to identify, clean up and safely dispose of the waste. ."Hazardous- waste in some 30,000 to 50,000 storage sites now poses a danger to man and his surroundings, and more than 1,000 of these sites may be extremely dangerous," he said. Nearly 77 billion pounds of hazardous waste are generated each year, yet only 10 percent may be disposed of in an environmentally sound manner, he said. "Indiana has at least 70 hazardous waste sites." he said, and mentioned Seymour Recycling Corp. at Freeman Field and Industrial Park as one of those sites. Hamilton said additional legislation is needed to "close the gaps in the present mishmash of laws concerning the treat-ment.of hazardous waste." Summer Schedule Is Listed For Jackson Go.
