Gemberling has headed the FBI investigation into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Gemberling says he is convinced no conspiracy was involved in Kennedy's assassination and he is not happy with a special congressional committee inquiry into the shooting. "It's costing $6.5 million bucks a year for this committee (the House Select Committee on Assassinations) to do its work," Gemberling said Monday. "If they don't find anything to prove to the American people there was a conspiracy, are they going to be willing to tell the American people that? Or are they going to want to have another $6 million? "I hope that if they don't find anything, they admit it. But I think they may be embarrassed to admit it. Personally, I think it's a waste of time and money." Gemberling, a 33-year- veteran of the FBI, plans to retire next month and tour the nation lecturing on a ''common sense, nonpolitical analysis" of the assassination. He said the major point of his lecture series will be that the Warren Commission was correct in ruling Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin and there was no conspiracy. Gemberling said he believes Oswald acted alone because he wanted recognition. "If anyone would go through the Warren report carefully, they'd find testimony from Yule Tree fire K///S Three In Posh Club SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) A Christmas tree burst into flames inside the posh St. Francis Yacht Club Monday night, killing three persons and sending hundreds of holiday partygoers running for their lives. Firemen found the bodies of • three unidentified victims in the rubble of the two-story Spanish stucco building, Boy Stabbed To Death SAN MATED, Calif. (UPI) — A 22-month-old boy was stabbed to death and his pregnant mother was critically wounded by a man who attacked them Sunday and ran nude down the street near their home until police arrested him. Dead in the rampage was ,, young Manuel Singares.^His,, mother', Rita, 22, was rushed to a nearby hospital soon after the afternoon attack and, by Caesarean section, bore a baby which was three months premature. Police said Charles Peters, 29, was charged with murder, assault and assault on a police officer. Officers said they were responding to what they thought was a call to assist an expectant mother when they encountered the suspect running beserk in the street near the Singares' home. Investigators were trying to • determine a motive. which was destroyed. Damage was estimated at $500,000. Eleven persons were hospitalized with injuries. Many of them were pelted by falling debris when the auditorium ceiling collapsed in a shower of flames. The flames, which shot 100 feet into the air, were visible from the Golden Gate Bridge and surrounding cities. "The Christmas tree went 'poof — just like that," said Ted Bakkila. He said floral garlands strung across the ceiling quickly ignited as flames raced through the building overlooking San Francisco Bay. The tinder-dry tree "flashed, exploded and burst into a ball of flame," said Fire Chief Andrew Casper, who had left the yacht club party just 10 minutes before the blaze broke out. .^^. "listening' to 'Christmas "carols when smoke started billowing into the room," said Robert Block. "The concert MC jumped up on the stage and told everyone to leave.' 1 "Once we were outside, it was just a matter of minutes before flames engulfed the entire building," he said. Some 200 firefighters battled the fire for two hours before bringing it under control. The yacht club was built in 1927. Architect Austin Moore designed the building in the style of the old Customs House at Monterey, a California landmark. people about Oswald showing he was schizophrenic. He needed treatment — even his mother said so.... It could all be capsulized in one word: recognition. He wantfed recognition." Gemberling said classified government documents he has seen support this conclusion. "I don't know of anything offhand that is classified that would shake the current decision that exists from the Warren Report. But I'm sure there's good reason there are some things that are not released to the public. Mostly the reason is national security." >\ He said both Rep. Thomas Downing, D-Va., who currently heads the House Select Committee on Assassinations, and Rep. Henry B. Gonzales, D.-Tex., who will take over Jan, 3, have "preconceived conspiracy theories." "I'm a great stickler to common sense and good judgment," said Gemberling, "and I don't think a lot of people who are investigating the assassination are using -it." Outing Ends In Tragedy BELLEVILLE — A father- son outing late Saturday afternoon ended in tragedy at a farm near here. Taylor A. Davis II, 28, a Belleville certified public accountant, suffered a fatal gunshot wound as his 3-year- old son, Taylor Davis III, looked on in horror. Republic County Sheriff Bob Blecha gave this report: The father and son were together on a target practice outing at the farm of the victim's father-in-law, Robert Blad, when a .22-caliber rifle accidentally discharged, the bullet striking Mr. Davis in the lower left abdomen. The father apparently had leaned the cocked, lever- action rifle against his body as he prepared to load and shoot a handgun. The rifle discharged. The youngster was not hurt. Davis crawled to near Blad's farmhouse, where family members found him. He was taken by the family to Republic county hospital and later transferred to St. Joseph hospital at Concordia, where he died Saturday night of apparent cardiac failure during surgery. The Blad farm is about 3 miles north of Belleville. When they saw the star they rejoiced and set forth bearing precious gifts. In the glorious spirit of giving, we offer thanks for the gift of your friendship. MASKA REDI MIX 812 E. 10th Hays
