Delia Dcmocrnt-Timcs 20 Sunday, July 24, '60 Named Clerico Hall Indlanola Church Annex Is Dedicated To Msgr. Clerico By CHRISTINE COX Indianola Correspondent INDANOLA -- Nearly 54 years ago a young priest. Fr. John F. Clerico, said his first mass in the Mississippi Delta, at Shelby. Last Thursday night Indianol- ans gathered to honor the Rt. Rev. Msgr. John F. Clerico, of Greenwood, by dedicating the annex to the Immaculate Conception Church to him and naming it Clerico Hall. It was on June 13, 1D06, that he was ordained to the pricsl- hood. In April, 1007. he entered upon his mission in the Delia, arriving from Natclic-?. Bishop Thomas Heslin reassigned the young priest to the Delta lo meet a need for someone to minister lo Ihc needs of the many Kalian-speaking people in the area. No Paved Roads There were no paved roads so Fr. Clerico rode mulcback to say Masses, administer the Sacraments, baptize babies, perform marriages, and administer last riles. No wonder everyone loved Fr. Clerico whom his best friends called 'Padre Giovanni.' He faced floods, infestation ol boll weevils, crop failures and wars that all brought suffering to his people. He has always Msgr. CLERICO held out comfort and reassurance to the faithful and stood by their side in happiness and sorrow. The dedication was a token ol love and esteem from those who know him, and a tribute to a beloved shepherd. Fr.

Soon their flesh may become deep yellow. Why? "Because a survey of American housewives shows that when hey go lo the market to buy chickens they seek a bird with a deep yellow color," says Robert j. Ratcliff, a graduate student in poultry. White birds are just as good and tasty .as yellow birds. Ratcliff says, but if the housewife wants a yellow chiccken 'it's up lo the producer to give her a fellow chicken. For five weeks Ratcliff has : ed 400 chickens a pigment-free diet, mostly of white corn and other white feeds, to make them as pure white as possible. For the next three weeks he will feed them yellow corn, alfalfa and other yellow foods in an effort to turn their ftcsh yellow. If successful the yellowing diet could mean much to poultry raisers, he said. That's not true for raisers everywhere, though. "Just the other day I received a letter from a producer in Spain -who wanted to know h o w he could grow bleached birds, Ratcliff said. "The demand i his area is for white chickens." Lots Of Cops But No Robbers NEWARK, N. J. (AP)-Frank C. Caramazza, 19, was leaning against an armored truck and told by guard Sebastian Scliick, 37, to move. An argument and fight ensued. Two cruising FBI agents, spotting the fight, thought it was a hoMup. They charged with guns drawn. "Don't shoot" yelled Schiek and Caramazza, ending their argument. A Newark policeman, Fred Parillo, seeing the guns, also thought a robbery was in progress. He drew his service revolver. "Don't shoot" yelled the FBI men. The truck was empty.

Congress has tightened regulations on the use of these 'unds for both domestic and overseas travel. While in the mood for reform. Congress also prohibited members from accepting free or cut- rate trips on U. S. steamship lines. Major Changes These were the changes voted Jy Congress before it recessed July 3: Annual reports covering spending for overseas travel must temize the use of both dollars and foreign currencies. The consolidated reports previously required (and published in the Congressional Record) now must show how much each traveling member and employee spent abroad. All members and employees traveling on Government funds, not just those on committee business, would be required !o report. Reports covering expenditures For domestic travel hereafter must be published. Hie Senate recent years has chosen lo publish this report on its own accord, but the House has not. Mow both houses are required by law to publish it. The House Administration Committee has limited Representatives and employees of the House to $12 per day plus transportation costs when traveling domestically on official business. With special permission they may spend a maximum of $25 per day, but the "watchdog" over Congress, the General Accounting Of- The Senate, which uses t h e same per diem schedule as the Executive Branch, recently proposed that the limit be raised from $12 lo $15 per day. When using dollars- for overseas travel, Senators and Senate employees would be paid the prevailing country-by-country per diem rate set by the Stale Deparlment. Under unusual circumstances they could be paid a maximum of S10 per day in addilion lo the per diem. Congress is expected lo complete action on this proposal in August. Members of Congress or their families in the future will be prc- Kibited from accepting free or cut-rate passage on U.S. steamship lines. Proponents of this "anti-junket" law argued that accepting this type of passage put Members in a vulnerable position when voting'on federal subsidies for the steamship lines. A similar prohibition covering rail most ol tho reform measures', was Sen. John J. Williams (R- j Del.). For the past several years Williams had pushed both for tighter regulations on tire reporting of travel expenses and n prohibition against free steamship travel.
