Move Is Awaited On Junior College Members of a Rapiftes parish delegation will keep a watchful eye on Baton Rouge for the next two or three weeks for a possible break in the deadlock over establishing a junior college at Chambers. The delegation, headed by R. R. Saunders and Assessor Trent James, huddled privately with a 7-man committee of the Louisiana State University Board of Supervisors in Baton Rouge Saturday.

Owner of Pistol Sought by Police NEW ORLEANS (AP)-St. Jonn the Baptist Parish officers Med today to find out who owned the revolver Edmund Duhe said he used to wound Mrs. Frank Mar tinez, a New Orleans woman, two weeks ago. Duhe told officers he stole the weapon. The 40-year-old Reserve Negro led officers yesterday to the .38 caliber revolver, which he said he threw away after shooting Mrs. Martinez as she sat in car in an isolated area near Lake Pontchartrain. ,, Mrs. Martinez' husband was fishing nearby when the shooting occurred. Duhe said he shot the woman because she refused to let him enter the car. Officers were still puzzled by a small cross that pointed to the spot where the missing pistol was buried in a swampy area off high way 51 near Laplace. Duhe said he knew nothing about the cross. Duhe again denied knowing anything about the 1956 slaying of Thomas Hotard of Gretna and tiie disappearance of Mrs. Audrey Moate of Baton Rouge. Hotard was found shot to death in a car near the place where Mrs Martinez was shot. i Officers said they found a pu'se fitting the description of one Mrs. Moate owned hidden under a seat in Duhe's car. They said they also found several other women's purses and considerable pornographic material in his car and house. Dr. Thomas W. Davit will be out of his office from March 22 through March 26 telora, Robert Verrett, C.H. Jor-dan, Bud Wilson, A. Brackln, Roy Landry, Wilfred Carson and Ches-ter Fontenot.
