Rockefeller Labors on New I estate, Farm," nation's on the 15-mile LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (UP) — Winlhrop Rockefeller, who is reported ready to make* the biggest divorce settlement in history, went out in a worn skivvy shirt and blue jeans today to supervise the construction of a water pipeline. He is building the pipeline up a 1,000 foot, precipice to supplyj water for his new .$1,000,000 estate on arid Petit Jean Mountain, about 80 miles northwest of Little Hock. Rockefeller, 41 -year-old heir of an oil fortune, will say only "no comment" *o reports from Chicago that ho is ready to give his "Cinderella bride," Harbara (Hobo) Rockefeller, $5,500,000 in a divorce settlement. His Little Rock attorney, Edwin E. Dunaway, said there would be no comment "now or in the future." Rockefeller moved to Arkansas several months ago and established a voting residence by paying his poll tax. He maintains a suite in| the Sam Peck Hole! and keeps tab on his business interests in a small office in a bank. Rockefeller's conduct in the small-town atmosphere of Arkansas has been circumspect. He has gone to parties, but his friends claim that ho has not had any dates with Arkansas girls. Last week he turned down an invitation to attend a social gathering of the Cotillion Club, a women's dance group. j He was persuaded to come to; Arkansas by Frank Newell, a Little j Rock insurance executive and a' fellow officer of Rockefeller in the 77th Division Infantry Regiment in World War II. Rockefeller's mountain which he calls "Winrock may become one of the showplaces. Construction 700-acro property atop a long mountain pin icon is about 80 per cent complete. Rockefeller is spending an estimated $200,000 remodeling a mansion. The estate will include a $40,000 gttest house, a $25,000 staff house for his Negro companion, Jim Hudson, two artificial lakes, a 300-acre cattle ranch, three tenant farm homes a swimming pool and recreation grounds. The pipeline project will provide enough water for a city the size of nearby Conway, Ark., which has a population of 8,000. Capitalist Stamp Marks 107 Babes Of G.E. Employes NKW YORK f/n—For the benefit of at least 107 wailing, capitalistic babies, General Electric stock closed Thursday at 78 7 /a. By being born Thursday, the infants put the big electric company on the book for more than $42,000 —and the end was not in sight. It began as publicity idea keyed to GE's 75th anniversary celebration. The firm promised five shares of stock to each baby born Thursday to a CiE employe or wife of an employe. At 78?' H , each babe enters life with shares worth $304.48. CIS was shaken but dead game as the tally passed the 100 mark. "General Electric stands firmly behind its offer/' its headquarters reported. Incidentally, the guy who thought up the stock idea is a bachlor. / - F i h . V,,;-. **** V 4- J L t I'll 1 I ' 'j" J I ' P b ' -T I . I I * ^ .+ ' • c ^.

Uft-A $100,000 fire destroyed an 80-foot-high feed mill here Thursday. One employe was treated for smoke inhalation. A pile of flame-twisted metal and smoldering grain was all that remained of the Horn feed mill after the blaze. The fire swept through the structure in 15 minutes, Albert Horn, brother of the owner, estimated loss at $100,000. He said milling equipment and supplies of grain, including 4,000 bushels of soybeans, were destroyed. It was the second major fire the mill since it was first built in 1948.
