Second Mystery Blast Hits Reno Residents of southern Reno and some just beyond the city limits Tuesday night reported the second mysterious explosion in less than a week. Calls began to hit switchboards at the Washoe county sheriff's of fice and the Reno police station at 7:52 p. m., and officers from both offices attempted without result to find the explosion source. The first report came from a watchman at the Isbell Construc tion Co. on South Virginia st., and after a house-to-house check au thorities figured the blast was centered somewhere in the Moana lane-Lakeside drive area, in the vicinity of the Anderson school. A check at the municipal air port indicated there were no jet planes in the area at the time. Reports on the explosion ranged from descriptions that buildings shook and windows rattled to one that the sound was like that of a heavy cellar door dropping. No flash was seen and nothing dam aged or burned was found. Saturday afternoon a blast was reported in the 1200 block of Hunter Lake drive, and shattered rock fragments were found and a smell ot turning powder reported. Mystery explosions similar to the one reported in Reno Tuesday- night recently have been reported in Beatty and in the Bay area in California. STEADY SNOW IS FORECAST FOR TONIGHT The U. S. Weatherman at the Reno airport said today he was not confusing Thanksgiving with Christmas as he predicted snow in the Reno area tonight, and snow showers Thursday. Promising a white Thanksgiving, he said some snow would commence falling this afternoon and should reach a "steady" fall by tonight. The storm, he said, was being provided, although a little late, for skiers who have been demanding a heavier white covering in the ski run areas of the mountains. Snow began falling in the Sierra about 9 o'clock this morning, and was still coming down at a steady rate early this afternoon. The storm extends throughout the Sierra in this region. Temperatures in Nevada were cool, but far from zero. The low in Nevada for the 24 hours ending at 4:30 a. m. today was at Ely. where it was eight above. Reno had a minimum of IS this morning.

OLYMPIC REUNION of Reno-ites was held yesterday when former teammates on international squads got together to talk over old times before Katy Rodolph and Dodie Post leave" Nov. 29 for New York and the Winter Olympics in Italy. Pictured left to right in bottom row are Hal Codding, named to both the 1940 U. S. Men's Olympic team and the F.I.S. squad; Katy Rodolph, member 1950 F.I.S. squad, 1952 U. S.

Olym Fallon Bill Backed for Highway Aid Members of the Nevada High way Users Conference and direc tors of the Reno Chamber of Commerce agreed Tuesday to back the Fallon bill for federal highway aid. As described to the group by Robert Guinn, highway users' sec retary, the Fallon bill provides for aid to interstate highway sys terns only and allocates federal aid funds on a basis of need. Although firmly in favor of the Fallon bill, the group showed little enthusiasm in approving two suggested financing methods, Both methods call for increased taxes on gasoline, diesel fuel and tires. Guinn told those present at a luncheon meeting that approximately $1,500,000,000 is now being diverted from taxes on highway users into general federal funds, and that no new taxes would be needed if the diversion could be stopped. The Fallon bill is one of several submitted to the last session of congress to provide for a national network of improved highways None were passed. Guinn said prompt action in taking a stand on the bill was necessary since federal highway action will prabably be one of the first activities of the next session of congress. One major feature of the Fallon bill is a provision that the gov ernment can condemn roadside lands to prevent construction of access roads, so that the federal system can be kept as high-speed expressways. Reno city officials, including Mayor Len Harris, Councilman Ben Maffi and City Manager Ira Gunn were present at the meet ing.

Elias last night was convicted of fatally shooting his wife, Lucy, 27, by a jury of seven men and five women. The jurors deliberated six hours before finding the dark haired defendant guilty of murder in the first degree. The jury reached its verdict at 10:45 and did not recommend leniency, which means Elias faces the death penalty in the prison gas chamber. lie will be sentenced by Judge Ryland Taylor Nov. 28 at 2 p. m. Asked by his attorney if he wished to appeal, Elias was apparently resigned to his fate and answered softly, "What's the use!" Elias shot his wife Sept. 23 following a turbulent day of family strife which stemmed from the proposed purchase of a new car and a report to the wife that he was deserting her. The jury in convicting Elias relied heavily on testimony by an eye witness to the shooting, car salesman Robert Stang, who saw the cook pump two .22 caliber slugs into the woman's body as she was attempting to flee the family home in Vegas Heights. A first degree murder conviction and death in the gas chamber had been asked by District Attorney George Dickerson just before the case went to the jury at 4:40 p. m. yesterday. Defense Attorney Dale Cook had asked for acquittal by pointing to the testimony of Elias who said the gun went off accidentally as he and his wife were scuffling. The murder trial was one of the shortest on record in Clark coun ty. It opened Monday morning with the selection of the jury and was concluded late Tuesdav. TOWS TO OPERATE Officials at Reno Ski Bowl an nounce that rope tows only will be operating Friday, Saturday and Sunday inthat area, unless a snowstorm arises to justify the use of the chair lift. Claims He's No Thief Prisoner Before Court Would Plead 'Neutral1 Asked how he would plead to a charge of petty larceny, Vernon Wilson Hovatter, 31, took the curious stand that he was neutral, and said so. This occurred in justice court Tuesday, when Hovatter was brought before Justice of the Peace William Beemer for arraignment on the charge. After the court read the charge against him, one involving the alleged taking of an overcoat from an auto while police officers were looking, Hovatter was informed Committee Ditch Plans Welcomed Cost of Cutting Out Loop In Sullivan-Kelly Studied Enthusiasm for at least part of the Truckee Meadows Ditch Committee's plan to alleviate ditch problems was shown by Mayor Len Harris Tuesday in a meeting of ditch representatives and city officials. Harris asked the ditch committee and city engineer Elliott Cann to investigate immediately the exact cost of eliminating a 6000-foot loop of the Sullivan-Kelly ditch near the present Park Terrace housing project at Ninth and Montello streets. He also inquired closely into possibilities of planting rose hedges as barriers along ditch banks. He asked the committee to determine the amount of federal aid which might be obtained for the project. The loop under discussion runs through gravel area which permits seepage of water into the ground from the ditch and the committee members said the federal government may allocate money for the project in the interest of conserving water. COST $24,000 Cost of the loop elimination, requiring construction of a 1900 foot concrete siphon line, was esti mated at about $24,000. The mayor's ditch committee now has $14,000 recently obtained from a city "ditch picnic." Harris said he would give the $14,000 to the ditch company if another $10,000 could be obtained from the federal government. "If you can do this, you've got a deal," he told committee members. The loop elimination was one part of a long-range plan which would lead to complete elimination of the English Mill ditch as an irrigation channel. Other parts of the plan presented by the ditch company representatives include increasing the capacity of the Sullivan-Kelly and Orr ditches eliminating a loop of the Orr ditch at the University of Nevada and diverting the English Mill flow into the other two channels STUDY ROSE HEDGE The rose hedges under discus sion would be of multiflora rose, a plant that can stop a speeding car or violent-tempered bull in its tracks. Harris suggested that his ditch committee could plant the roses if ditch companies would give their permission. Roger Teglia, chairman of the meeting Tuesday, said the ditch companies approved, but permission would have to be obtained from owners of abutting property. Cost or tne entire program, ditch company men said, would be between $100,000 and $150,000 They said the city could buy the English Mill right of way for the cost of the other ditch improve ments, and that the ditch com panies would then use the money for widening and shortening of the Orr and Sullivan-Kelly ditches. According to the ditch company plan, the city could then use the English Mill rights of way for a drainage line. City Engineer Elliott Cann said such a line would be useful if the city grows toward the east. City representatives present at the meeting, held in the state farm bureau offices on Mill street were Harris, City Manager Ira Gunn, City Attorney Samuel B. Francovich, Cann, Councilmen Russell Mills, Dick Taylor, William Foster and Ben Maffi. Re gional Planning Director Raymond M. Smith also attended, as did about a dozen ditch company representatives. Toys for Tots Drive Supported Lending a helping hand to Reno's Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots" campaign on Dec. 4, will be a group of twelve boys and girls from the St. Paul's Epis copal Young People's Fellowship of Sparks. The group will meet at the Ma rine Corps Reserve Training Center on Evans Avenue between 2 and 4 p. m. to wrap and sort toys which will be distributed to less fortunate children at a later date. The Young People's Fellowship is one of many such organizations which have volunteered their assistance in the yearly drive. Any organization in the Reno-Sparks area which cares to assist in this campaign is invited to call the Marine Corps Reserve at 1303 Evans Avenue or by phone at 2- 5618. of his rights, and told he could plead guilty or not guilty or even enter a plea later. So he pleaded "neutral." "I'm not a thief," he told the court. In the next breath he said he took the coat, all right, but only because he was cold. "Was the coat yours?", Judge Beemer asked. "I'm neutral," said Hovatter. Finally Judge Beemer ordered Hovatter held under $100 bail and set Dec. 6 as the time for entering a plea one other than "neutral" $10,000 Pledged For Consf ruction Of Skating Rink Promise of a $10,000 donation for a Reno skating rink has revived Reno Chamber of Commerce interest in the project which was shelved by city coun cilmcn recently. George Stetson, chairman of the chamber's civic affairs com mittee, told members Tuesday that two anonymous persons had pledged $5000 each for construction of a skating rink in Wing- field Park. stetson said the money was pledged with the understanding that the money would not go to a private enterprise and that the two prospective donors should approve plans for the rink. Previously the chamber had presented the rink plan to the city council, with a proposal that a private firm would operate the skating facility. City officials put the plan? aside when City Manager Ira Gunn said about $30,000 would be needed. He said the money would be required for construc tion of sanitary facilities. Stetson said Tuesday that sanitary facilities would not be absolutely necessary at the start, and that such improvements could be added in future years. Stetson further said the rink could be put in operation this year, and that a study ot costs is being made now. Surrey Center Of Civil Suit One "two seat surrey, with fringe on top, and candle lamps on each side" is a major item in a law suit filed in Washoe county district court Wednesday by the Mapes family. Mrs. Charles W. Mapes, Charles W. Mapes. jr., and Gloria Mapes Kraemer are asking for return of the surrey, two single seat buggies with leather tops and other family antiques from purchasers of the former Mapes home on Ral ston street. The defendants, w ho purchased the home earlier this year, are Dale Smith, A. H. Smith, Anna M Smith and Edward D. Smith. According to the complaint, filed by . Attorney Thomas A Cooke, the list of items is valued at $5200. Mrs. Mapes said the buggies and surrey had been used by George W. Mapes, grandfather of Charles Mapes, jr., and a promin er.t Nevada cattle rancher. She said they were in the barn behind the Ralston street house when it was sold, and that the Smiths have refused to relinquish them. The home is one of Reno's oldest Also included in the list of an tique items are three bedroom sets, three rosewood armchairs two trunks full of family linens and keepsakes, a branding iron and brass light fixtures from the old post office which was on the present site of the Mapes hotel. One item was listed as the spe cific property of Charles W. Mapes, jr. It is a combination pool and billiard table, with 12 cues, valued at $600. Rita's Divorce Action Deferred PARIS, France, Nov. 23. C A French judge today deferred recognition of the Reno divorce granted Rita Hayworth and Aly Khan in 1953. The judge said he would render judgment Dec. 14 and said the extra time to study the case was necessary because French law sometimes doesn't recognize Reno divorces even though both parties are agreed. Rita and Aly were represented by lawyers and were not in court. The film actress is now in France on a visit to allow her five year old daughter Yasmin to see her father. The couple is asking for French recognition of the Reno divorce because Aly lives in France and hence wants his martial status clear in this country. Eoth parties desire the recognition because it will give a legal basis in French courts for the customary agreement on Yasmin. I Of U.N. Farm Board Scheduled To Study Bids At Dec. 3 Meet Future of the University of Nevada farm on South Virginia Road may be mapped Dec. 3 at a meeting of the university boarl of regents. Members of the board have asked prospective purchasers t submit bids on the 208-acre tract in the latest of a series of efforts to dispose of the property. PROPOSAL VETOED At one time, about a year ago. the regents agreed to dispose of the farm in a trade-cash deal, but the governor vetoed the proposr1! on the ground the university was not receiving fair value. A special committee appointed by the governor to evaluate the proposal estimated that the university farm should bring a minimum of $755,000. Several offers have been ma3? for the property, particularly by the Berkeley firm of Morgan and Peacock Properties, Inc., but ail have been rejected by the regenis. At the time the bids on the farm are received, the regents also will open proposals to the university for a replacement, property to which various experiments now being conducted on th Soui Virginia property can Ik? transferred. SET TIME TABLE The regents have worked out a rather intricate timetable, to insure smooth transfer of the important experiment projects, attempting to mesh sale of the farm and acquisition of the new farm-site. In line with this thought, the regents have requested prospective purchasers to agree to allow the regents to retain physical possession, with a limit of up to six months, of the university farm to allow orderly shifting of the projects. Following the Dec. 3 opening, the regents have reserved the right to keep the bids under study until Dec. 17. The successful bidder then will be given until Jan. 30 to put up the cash. At the same time, the regents have reserved the right to study offers of sale of replacement property until Jan. 18. EFFORTS REVIEWED Efforts of the regents to sell the South Virginia farm were revived at the Oct. 1 meeting of the board, at which time Dr. John Bert rand, dean of the Max C. Fleischmann College of Agriculture, recommended that the property be disposed of under a set of well-defined conditions. His recommendation followed a conference . with an advisory committee on college of agriculture affairs composed of 13 of the state's leading agriculturalists. Also on the agenda of the Dec. 3 regent's meeting is receipt of the report on accreditation of the Mackay School of Mines by the Engineers' Council for Professional Development. Five of the six departments in the school met the council's requirements. Hofues Signs Stardust Loan LAS VEGAS.
