When the ol« lady wasn't look- in' I took it and mounted it on the barrel. "I don't guess she knows yet what happened to that trim," he chuckled. The piece of aluminum trim was cut to fit the length of the barrel. The top is slooted for cooling. The peep sight is a tiny section of the spout of a lighter fluid can. The front sight is a valve core wrench. Bullets are bicycle wheel bearings. The ramrod—for tamping the powder and shot—is a discarded toy (lag pole. Mounted in the stock is a tiny compass. "If I'm ever so far out in the woods shootin' game that I get lost, I'll be able to find my way back," Stark winked. * * * Stark claims the gun can shoot with any 16-gauge shotgun and he killed a fox with it last weekend just to prove his point. He says the credit for test firing his creation goes to his brother-in-law, 18-year-old Alton Woods. Stark was asked where he got the idea of making his own muzzle-loader. "Well, one night I was a sit- tin' watchin' ole Dan'l Boom on television and I just said to myself, Til make me a gun just like ole Dan'l's.' " Sure enough, carved into the stock of the gun is the inscription, "D. Boone Special '48." What would "ole Dan'l" think of Stark's gun if he could have had one like it, he was asked. "that booger would really have shot him some game," came the grinning reply. Lifesaving Accident GLENDALE, Calif. (AP) Luckily for Arline Vestal, the other motorist was a heart surgeon. Mrs. Vestal collasped of an apparent heart attack while driving and her car struck one driven by Dr. Louis Ludington. The heart specialist immediately applied mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and began heart massage. Doctors at Glendale Memorial Hospital said Tuesday the efforts of Ludington saved the 45- year-old women's life and probably prevented brain damage as well. Effort Freezes Out UTICA, N.Y. (AP) - Officials at the suburban Whitesboro Central School did their best to keep the school open Tuesday when temperatures plummeted to 22 below zero,- but it wasn't, enough. The fleet of school buses serving the school had been kept running through the night, to assure their readiness in the morning. The effort failed, however, when 17 bus drivers reported they couldn't get their automobiles started and were unable to get to work. Glasses were canceled. Vegetable Prices Will Be Higher WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. housewives will have to dig deeper into their pocketbooks to buy fresh vegetables this win ter. The Agriculture Department said Tuesday that production of vegetables for fresh markets this winter will be 11 per cent below last year's level and 5 per cent below average. Shorter supplies are expected to boost prices for cabbage, carrots, celery, lettuce, onions, tomatoes, artichokes, beets, sweet corn, egg plant and green peppers. Launch Delayed CAPE KENNEDY, Ffc. (AP) — Die maiden launching of the project Apollo Lunar Module nac been delayed at least three days, until Jan. 01, by a series of minor problems that cropped up during spacecraft fueling. No official announcement was rapected from toe National Aer- onauttei and Space Administration until the fueling exesciie is more complete. The first lunar module is a forerunner of the craft which is to land two Amerimn astronauts on the moon: On «*• . initial flight the engines are to be tested in earth orbit. fl» slant of the Leaning Tw- er of Pisa was not planned. It was due to the sinking of the MM BILL (Continued fram Fife One) posed to the proposal that would authorize a local option tales tax of 1 per cent. "Ths lower income groups are hurt more by sales taxes than any other group," Becker said. "We have to regard it as a cut in our hourly wages." Becker said combining the lack of a minimum wage proposal with.the enactment of the proposed tax option would bleed more money from "these poverty stricken people." Becker said there still are people around the state who make only 25 cents to 40 cents a hour. State law now only stipulates that women be paid $1.25 a day. Becker said the minimum wage law "is an issue Arkansas has to face." Smoking Towel Sets Off 'Major Response' LONG BEACH, Calif. (AP) When a fire is reported on the Queen Mary, the fire department makes a "major problem response." It did so Wednesday. Three engine companies, a ladder company, a boat company and a squad company roared to the harbor where the retired ocean liner is being converted into a hotel. For 30 minutes firemen looked for the smoke that had set off an electric alarm. They found a "SEVENTH HEAVEN" is the non-Marxist name oE a restaurant high op on this reinforced concrete television tower rising 1,748 feet over Moscow's Ostan- kino District. The structure is nearly 300 feet higher than New York's Empire State Building with its antenna. The Soviets say clear television picture* from the tower's transmissions can be received op t» 100 miles away. PRIVILEGES AUTHORIZED At SECOND CLASS MAIL Blytheville Courier New! • BLYXHEVILLE, ARK.
