1 ASSIST FROM ENTERPRISE - The Goodyear blimp Enterprise floats over the Coast Guard cutter Cape Gull during an experimental tour in which tiie 92-foot airship has been helping with UPI Photo search and rescue and drug interdiction efforts. The Enterprise helped locate two stranded people in a motor boat last week. Bankrupt Hutchinson hotel is sold HUTCHINSON (HNS) - C.W. Land Company, Augusta, was the high bid- I der Friday afternon for the bankrupt I Hutchinson Plaza Towers Hotel. The firm's $450,000 bid was the high| est of eight cash bids received. The sealed bids were opened in Reno County District Court, and Judge Porter Brown ruled C.W. Land's bid should be [ accepted. The owners of the company are Carl Coonrod and Doyle Walz. Tentative plans for the hotel include continued conversion of the rooms into aparfinents and reopening the restaurant, according to Fred Hanley, a Wichita real estate agent involved in Jury finds Rainey guilty of killing KHP trooper EL DORADO, Kan. (UPI) — George [Rainey was found guilty Friday of kUl- ' ing Kansas Highway Patrol trooper Ferdinand (Bud) Pribberiow by a Butler County District Court jury. "Justice was done," said Special Prosecutor Norman Manley. The six-man, six-woman Jury took just more than 2% hours to find Rainey, 24, of Milwaukee, guilty of first-degree murder for killing the trooper af- | ter being stopped for speeding on the I Kansas Turnpike. District Judge Page Benson will [ have a hearing Dec. 11 on a motion by defense attorney Ray Cornell for a new trial. Warning! Severe Weather Is Coming Now is the time to have that beautiful new STEEL SIDING VINYLSIDING Installed the sale. The 12-story hotel has 51 rooms available for nightly rent, and 40 apartments. Hanley will get a six percent commission from the $450,000 sale of the hotel, and the remaining $423,000 will be divided between a Salina bank and investors who invested $1.5 million in industrial revenue bonds to renovate the hotel. The First National Bank and Trust Company of Salina was trustee for the hotel, which continued to lose money after it went bankrupt about three years ago, bank lawyer Stan Sexton said. But the bank will get more than $200,000 of that amount as reimbursement for the money it put into the hotel, which means the bond-holders may recover less than $200,000 of their investment, Brown said. Purchasers of the bonds thus will get back about 12 cents for each dollar they invested. One more court hearing will be held Dec. 11 to clear up final details before the Dec. 15 closing of the sale. • The hotel was appraised at $750,000. But Don Bell, a Wichita attorney representing the bond-holders, said the $450,000 price is reasonable under current market conditions. Defective engine mount welds blamed for crash of test plane Quick Delivery On STORM WINDOWS AND STORM DOORS Custom-Made In Salina We Measure and Install LOUX HOME IMPROVEMENTS Arthur J. Loux —Owner 314 W.Crawford 913-827-1359 (Just West of Church's Fried Chicken) Salina, Kansas HAMPTON, Va. (UPI) - Defective welds on a recently installed engine mount may have caused an experimental plane to crash into the Chesapeake Bay, killing three researchers, a federal investigator said Saturday. John Drake of the National Transportation Safety Board said two welds on the framework broke off and several others were weak, apparently causing the engine to partially separate from the aircraft prior to the crash. "That framework (mount) holds the engine in place," Drake explained. "It was welding associated with that framework that we're looking at." The engine did not fall off the plane, Drake added. He said witnesses heard the engine sputter just before the aircraft crashed Thursday. "Witnesses said there were irregular sound surges, increasing and decreasing sounds, just before the crash," he said. Drake said metallurgical tests would be conducted to determine what caused the welds to fail. He said a final report would not be completed for several months. Dead are Wendell W. Kelley, 41, of Newport News, Va., a NASA research pilot, Paul F. Coy, 23, of Hampton, Va., an engineer with NASA's Dynamic Stability Branch, and George Mead, 33, of Wichita, Kan., chief engineer for Piper Advanced Technologies. The plane was being tested at the NASA-Langley Research Center because of its unique "canard" wing design. 4-H banquet set Announcement of the State 4-H Awards, the Outstanding 4-Hers of the Year and the Key Awards will highlight the annual 4-H achievement banquet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the 4-H Building.

Sunday, November 22,1961 —The Sallna Journal Page 31 Schedule clean-up work at Tar Creek mine site SALINA AUTO SALVAGE h.iyn it wr> S'prvirn (ri I'/j Miles North on 81 827-5686 WASHINGTON (UPI) - Clean-up work on the nation's wont environmental hazard, a 40-square-mile mine site, could begin as early as January 1983, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says. The EPA said Friday it probably would commit $450,000 in "superfund" money to study ways of cleaning up the toxic hazards at the Oklahoma-Kansas Tar Creek site. The field of old mines, now full of water contaminated by lead, zinc and cadmium, is rated as the nation's No. 1 hazardous waste site in a report to a House subcommittee. The superfund was created by Congress last year to pay for the clean-up of toxic wastes. Christopher Capper, EPA's acting assistant administrator for solid waste and emergency response, met with Reps. Mike Synar, D-Okla., and Bob Whittaker, R-Kan., and proposed a one-year timetable for completing studies on how to remedy the hazard. Whittaker released EPA documents that account for three months of paperwork before a March 1982 start on a six-month field investigation to determine the scope of the problem, followed by a three-month feasibility study on techniques for remedying it. He said the plans are tentative but that these is a "99 percent chance" of approval. When the proposed studies end in December of next year, clean-up work could begin in January 1983 if warranted, Whittaker said. He said the $450,000 cost will not include any state money. The EPA also agreed to Join the Health and Human Services department in a study of lung cancer rates in the Tar Creek area, the congressman said. "We think this is a major accomplishment," Synar said. "It means the project is going to be moving along expeditiously. We feel the cost estimates and the timetable of the year is reasonable. The important thing is that we learned that the project will not be allowed to die," Whittaker said. County considers service agreement A service agreement with a McPher- spn computer firm for data processing for the District Court will be among the concerns of the Saline County commissioners when they meet Tuesday. Other agenda items include a resolution establishing a deferred compensation plan for the county, and a resolution that would allow the attachment of 24 sections of land in Dickinson County to the area now covered by Rural Fire District 1.
