MAYS DAILY NEWS PA<;K :i December 10, 1976 Wind Takes Roof Off Home QU1NTER — Stones and glass don't generally mix, especially if you're throwing one against the other. That logic seemed to also be the case when a 35 m.p.h. gust of wind blew the roof off a mobile trailer as it was being towed near here Wednesday. A Norton Highway Patrol spokesman said Nebraskan .Lynn Melchert, IB, was driving a semi along Interstate 70, two miles east of the Quinter interchange when a gust of wind blew the roof off the trailer home 1 he was hauling and caused an estimated $400 damage. Although trailers are not allowed to be towed when the wind is blowing more than 25 m.p.h., police said the wind was about 18 m.p.h. for the day. Police Department Sued HUTCHINSON (HNS) — Police Chief Bob Adams will appear in small claims court Dec. 28 as a result of a claim filed against the police department by a South Hutchinson man. Jay Stormenl, 22, claims $300 worth of tools were missing from his truck after it was held overnight in the city's impoundment lot. Storment is suing the police department for $300 - the maximum amount allowed under small claims court provisions. Storment was charged with auto theft and spent the night in jail. Upon release on bond, he went to the lot and said he discovered the tools were missing from his impounded truck. Adams said because Storment alleges the tools were missing from the lot, which falls under the police department's jurisdiction, he will be the one to appear in court to answer. Under small claims court provisions, neither party may be represented by an attorney. Storment's trial on the auto theft charge is pending. Man Survives 7620-Vott Shock LEOTI (HNS) — A Scott City man working on a Whe'atland Electric line northeast of Leoti Monday afternoon survived a 7620 volt shock, but lost an arm and a leg. George Anrasek, 29, Scott City, was,listed in stable condition Friday in the intensive care unit at St. Catherine Hospital, Garden City. * Lewis Mitchell, of the Wheatland Electric office is Scott City, said Anrasek was performing routine maintenance work on a line about three miles northeast of Leoti when the accident occurred about 3:30 p.m. He said three Wheatland crews were working in the area at the time. Mitchell said no one knows exactly what happened. The men had completed some repair work, he said, and had energized the line when Anrasek somehow came in contact with a live wire-7620 volt worth. Mitchell said the worker was atop a pole at the time and was belted to it. The others, he said, brought him down and administered first aid. Anrasek was taken for emergency treatment to Wichita County Hospital, Leoti, and transferred immediately to Garden City. An arm and a leg had to be amputated, said Mitchell. The Wheatland official said the workers were practicing proper safety procedures, and it appeared to be a freak accident. "We don't know how it happened, but it did," he said. Slaying Case Hearing Delayed ' SHARON SPRINGS (HNS) — Preliminary hearfng for a 25-year-old Russell Springs woman, charged with the first degree murder of Russell Springs rancher Raymond Wycoff, has been continued indefinitely at the request of Wallace County Attorney J. I. Linder. Mrs. Darlene Marie Kowalke is in the Sherman county jailnn lieu of $200,000 bond. Her preliminary hearing had been set for Thursday morning. A murder warrant also has been issued against her husband, Walter, who is in a Colorado Springs, Colo., hospital suffering from a bleeding ulcer and addiction withdrawal symptoms. Linder said Thursday that "word is he (Kowalke) is getting better. As soon as he's able to travel and if he waives extradition, he'll be brought to Kansas by a Kansas Bureau of Investigation agent." Authorities say Mrs. Kowalke on Dec. 3 led lawmen from Wallace, Logan and Sherman counties and Kansas Bureau of Investigation agents to a snow-covered ditch along a country road about three miles southeast of Wallace, where they found Wycoff's bludgeoned body buried under a clump of Russian thistles. Doc Who Treats Up To 85 Patients Daily Is Evicted No Toy What Old St. Nick is checking twice before taking up a post in midtown shopping area Is not a toy. And Adam D'Amico is no jolly old elf. He is a decoy cop, one of several anticrlme officers who will be coming to town in the next few days. (UPI Photo) . HARRISONVILLE, Mo. (UPI) — Dr. H.E. Kirsch has to leave the dingy little three- room office where he has treated patients for nearly a quarter century. He has paid $50 a month for the rooms, but he's never had a lease. He thought he didn't need one. But that lack of a lease is now hurting Kirsch. The radio station next door needs room to expand, and the only place is the office of "Doc," a 69- year-old osteopath who treats up to 85 patients a day, regardless of whether they can pay. "I've had this for 22 years, why should I need a lease?" he said. "They never approached me with a lease. I've been here for 22 years and the other two offices in the building have been vacant half the time." But landlord Leon Mallon; who has lived in Atlanta for several years, said he offered Kirsch a lease for his rooms, or the adjacent rooms, or the entire building about 10 years ago, but said Kirsch wouldn't take it. "Why should he take a lease?" Mallon said Thursday, "Whenever it needed painting or fixing, it was always me. I must have spent $200 to $300 a year fixing that place up. Why, every three or four months I had to repair the lock. He had so many people- around there they wore it out. "I finally realized he wasn't the right kind of tenant for me, he abused my place. I'm getting only $50 a month, but I'm paying out $25 to $30 a month on water bills alone. Everybody in town must vise Doc Kirsch's toilet, and nothing was ever taken care of, nothing was ever cleaned. "What docs he want me to do for $50, stand on my head?" Mallon said last summer ho asked Arnic Wilson, owner of KIEE-FM radio, which occupies the rooms next to Kirsch, if he needed more space, because he was "getting rid of Kirsch." Wilson said he would like to have mor,c room, but said he wanted to make it easy on the doctor. However, Kirsch found out about his eviction several weeks ago when Cass County Sheriff Bill Gough walked into his office, full of patients, and handed him the notice. 25% Of Population 'Shot' ATLANTA (UPI) — With the nationwide swine flu immunization program nearly completed, the national Center for Disease Control reported Thursday that under 35 million Americans have been innoculated, far below expections. The CDC said that through the week ending Dec. 4, some 34,895,804 persons had received flu shots, or about 25 per cent of the esti mated eligible population of 135,255,112. For the one week ending last Saturday, 4,612,524 vaccinations were given, a figure more than 150,000 below the previous week. The nationwide effort to immunize the adult population against the new and potentially dangerous swine influenza was launched (he first week of October after a costly ,two-month delay caused by insurance problems. The program received a further setback two weeks later with reports of elderly persons (tying after getting their immunizations. Despite reassurance that the vaccine was safe, federal health officials said the bad publicity hurt inoculation efforts. Some states already have closed special mass inv munizations clinics at shopping centers and other convenient locations but continue giving shots at regular health centers. The nationwide program is scheduled to be ' essentially completed in three ', weeks. AMERICA'S FAVORITE PIZZA Good News Dinner Special Submarine Sandwich, $4 rn Salad and Drink .... I.

Miss Hearst, arriving surrounded by shotgun-carrying private guards, whisked in and out of Superior Court Thursday, spending only, seven minutes in the courtroom in a successful appeal for another delay. The prosecution did not object. Albert Johnson, attorney for the 22-year-old newspaper heiress, based the request on her commitments to appear "as a witness for the state of California and the United States of America" in other jurisdictions — state and federal court trials of fellow fugitives during her period with the SLA. Judge William Ritzi postponed the trial from January 10 to April 4, stressing to attorneys on both sides that is "a very firm a definite date." 'Miss Hearst faces 11 charges of kidnap, robbery and assault for allegedly shooting up an Inglewood sporting goods store during a robbery by William and Emily Harris and fleeing across the city, commandeering cars, kidnaping and robbing the drivers.
