Boys Still Missing; Caves Combed Emeritus Titles Go To 5 At UA The Board of Regents today honored with professor emeritus titles five retiring teachers who have, served the University of Arizona for a total of 193 years. They are Dr. Marie Padget Hamilton, Madame Elenore Altman, Dr. Roy F. Graesser, Dr. Edwin J. Purcell and Fred A. Enke. Mrs. Hamilton, who retires as a professor of English, began her -teaching career in a one- room school in Allendale, S.C. After that she worked for the Vvar Department in Washington during World War I and taught in Veterans Hospitals before arriving here in 1924. Since then, she has earned a reputation as one of the nation's leading scholars of medieval English. An essay of liers in HANNIBAL, Mo. (UPI)-Mark Twain provided a similar plot 91 years ago: An uncharted cave and three persons lost in its' depths. There is some variation in the situation and the names and times have changed, but if Joe Hoag, 13, his brother, Bill, 11, and their' pal, Edward Dowell, 14, are in the cave, the fear is just as chilling as any related in "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer." The three boys, missing since Wednesday afternoon, became the objects of a massive search when their parents reported they may have adventured into one of the caves dotting the Mississippi River bluff just south of here in the heart of BUSINESS · SPURTS Auto Dealers Cheered By Spring Sales DETROIT (UPI) -- The auto sales reports from the "big four" are glowing once again. It's spring and the carmakers are closing the sales gap on 1966 with a strong selling spurt. The major automakers sold nearly 32 percent more cars in the first 10 days of this month than in the same period a year ago. General Motors Corp., the industry giant, broke its record for the May 1-10 period. For A m e r i c a n Motors Corp., struggling to regain a larger portion of the market, it was Mark Twain's fabled adventure- land. Following a futile search in the confining Murphy's Cave Friday, diggers widened their hunt, concentrating on sinkholes in a roadbed being cut through cave-country." Searchers at first thought one sinkhole went back only about 100 feet, but as they excavated, they uncovered unknown new passages. Twenty Spelunkers -- experienced cave explorers--fanned out into the labyrinths in teams of three and spent the evening searching- the cave, lack of a name is 2 Osteopaths, Hospital Face Suit Tucson General Hospital and two osteopathic physicians have been named defendants in a $200,000 damage suit filed by a Tucson couple. Asking the damages in the Superior Court complaint are Mr. and Mrs. Warren Ryan, who claim that Mrs. Ryan suffered a heart attack after being administered medication for a weight problem. Defendants with the hospital are Drs. T. J. Odom and H. W. Gui.nand and five unknown hospital employes. The suit further claims the hospital and five of its employes improperly d i a g n o s e d Mrs. Ryan's condition in 1965. the best first of the month period in five months. Ford Motor Co., Chrysler Corp., and AMC together sold 253,949 cars, up a whopping 32 per cent from the 193,276 cars sold in the same period a year ago. The spring sales spurt began in April after a long, hard winter for the industry, but the May 1-10 period was by far the best reported this year. "The continued strong sales pace, following an Aprji in which we moved ahead of the 1966 pace," said Frank Zimmerman Jr., division manager of Lincoln-Mercury, "confirms our belief that a strong spring surge of car buying is under way." GM said it'sold a record 149,798 cars in the first 10 days of May, up sharply from 97,075 in the same 10 days of 1966; Chrysler sold 38,039 cars, up from 31,218 last year; Ford sold 60,071 cars, up from 59,224 last year: and AMC had sales of 6,041 cars during the period, up from 5,759 last year. and night which for called "The System." They got back as far as 1,000 feet before calling off the search at midnight to rest to resume this morning, The system plunges back under Lovers' Leap Hill, part of a bluff about a half mile south of Murphy's Cave. William Karras, the search-party leader, said he had at least a dozen witnesses who saw the boys atop . the bluff after school Wednesday. Also spurring the searchers into the system was a report by a friend of the boys, Dean Graybill, who said they told him they had discovered a new cave. Dean said the boys "wouldn't tell where it was.' As the big machinery moved tons of earth for the new U.S. 79, several sinkholes have been uncovered, many of them revealing caves hitherto unknown. As the sinkholes were uncovered, workers filled them with dirt and gravel. The searchers were operating on the theory that between the time a sinkhole was uncovered and was filled in, the boys may have slipped in and become trapped or lost in the maze of passages. Hundreds of rumors have poured in to : local and area police, some from as far away as California, reporting the boys were seen. Authorities said all reports were being checked nut. Karras. however, was not relaxing his efforts in the cave hunt. "We'll dig up this whole road up to the bridge if we have to, to find the boys," he said. The fill area is about 90 feet wide and stretches to a bridge about 1 1-2 miles away. While the search was centered in Murphy's Cave, the fear arose the boys may have frozen to death because that cave system was so small they may not have had ample room to move and keep warm. But the system is a much larger cave. It provides a setting similar to that through which Tom Sawyer and his girl friend, Becky Thatcher, raced in an attempt to elude Injun Joe in Twain's novel. In the 1876 novel, masses of townspeople searched and later found them, a hope that prevailed in Hannibal today. Bonanno Will Ask To Add To House Representatives of Joseph (Joe Bananas) Bonanno, reputed Mafia overlord, are to appear before the City Board of A d j u s t m e n t Thursday t o request permission for an addition to Bonanno's home al 1847 E.

Garrison's claim came in a formal reply filed in Criminal District Court to a defense petition asking return of the address book. Garrison said his claim was reason enough not to return the address book taken from Shaw's French Quarter apartment the day Shaw was arrested.
