He was 70. The zany, horn-honking comedian, beloved for his outrageous blond wig and eye-popping lear, was the harum-scarum member of the troupe which conquered vaudeville in the '20s, Broadway and the "movies. Harpo, whose real name was Arthur, entered Mt. Sinai Hospital Saturday and was operated on Monday morning. After apparently making a strong recovery his condition worsened and he died at 8:30 p.m., PDT. At his side when death came' were his wife, Susan, and two of his sons. He is survived by three sons, William, Alexander and James; a daughter, Minnie, and his brothers, Groucho, Zeppo and Gummo. The fifth Marx brother, Chico, died three years ago in Hollywood. ' It. was Harpo's silent antics that most frequently embroiled the brothers in hilarious escapades with the forces of law and order in such films as "Horsefeathers," "A Night at the Opera," "Duck Soup," and "Animal Crackers.' And it was Harpo's mastery of the harp which generally saved the day. During the past decade, .lar- po Marx lived quietly, making occasional appearances with symphony orchestras while his brother, GroucUo, continued in entertainment as a televsision star. Groucho and Zeppo were told of the death by brother Gummo. None of the three surviving brothers was able to comment on their loss. Harpo, who never spoke during the three decades of the family comedy act, made his last public appearance Aug. 16 at a testimonial for Palm Springs Police Chief Gus Kettman. It was only the second time the diminutive star had stepped out of character to speak in public. Harpo's contribution to the Marx brothers' brand of comedy was a battered opera hat, baggy pants and an improbable frock coat, from which he pulled a bulbous auto horn, live animals, mannequin legs and a wild assortment of junk. He was born Nov. 23, 1893, in New York City, the second son of Sam Marx, an immigrant Jewish tailor. His mother was the talented musician, Minna Schoenberg, the sister of comedian Al Shean of the celebrated vaudeville team Gallagher and Shean.

Mo., with Republican and Democratic organizations renting half of same house for campaigning:. rr rr Anti-Noise Ordinance Is Passed Here An "anti-noise" ord i ri a n c e passed by Tipton's Common Council .Monday night is expected to be in force in about two weeks, according to City Attorney Frederick Suber. Designed to plug the loopholes in an existing state statute, the new law specifies "what shall constitute unreasonable and unnecessary noise of motor vehicles." The ordinance prohibits operating any motor vehicle within the city "in such a manner, or with such equipment, as to make . . . any loud, unnecessary, excessive or unusual noise which either annoys, disturbs, injures or endangers the comfort, repose, health peace and quiet of others." Adoption of the ordinance was recommended to the Council at its September 14 meeting by Tip ton Police Chief James Pratt. Current state laws do not specify what constitutes unnecessary noise, Pratt said and it is almost impossible to obtain a conviction under them. Kokomo and several other Indiana towns have used a similar ordinance with success. The Tipton version will be in effect after publication requirements have been met. Penalties for violation include a fine of one dollar to $500 and impoundment of up to one year. •In other action Monday, the Council agreed to lease from the (Continued from page 6) ^ Boy Genius, 10 Enters College EAST LANSING, Mich. (UPI) — Mike Grost, a 10-year-old scholar with an intelligence "too hieh to be measured meaningfully," was enrolled as a Michigan State University freshman today. When he starts classes Thursday he'll be the youngest full- time student ever to matriculate at'the school. But for Mike college will be no new experience. He has been attending classes at the university for more than a year and during that time has maintained an A-minus average while working his way through courses in natural science, the humanities, history and mathematics. At the same time he also was progressing in a regular fashion through the elementary grades at Cumberland Road, school. But that part of his education has now ended. About the only difficulty he has encountered with college work so far has been penmanship. To aid him he -now has an electric typewriter at home. He still prefers to print rather than to use cursive writing and although he is somewhat slow, he has been able to complete class papers and tests in the time allotted. Warren Report Draws tittle Reaction Here Indifference seems to be the general, reaction locally to the findings of the Warren Commission's study of President John F. Kennedy's assassination. Of an even dozen persons questioned by the TRIBUNE today, only one said he' had read the report and admitted that- he had "only glanced at it.". Of the remaining 11, all said they had not read the report. One of these said he had neither read it nor watched or listened to television or radio broadcasts describing the report. One woman said she had listened to a part of one telecast. Those few who professed some knowledge of the findings appeared to be. misinformed. One believed the Commission had; found Oswald not guilty of the assassination. All, however, seemed to think the commission had made a thorough study and had drawn reasonable conclusions. ' One woman remarked that the investigation "was as good as they could do under the circumstances." A man said that he couldn't see "any other conclusions they could have come to." What is responsible for the seeming indifference to the report is not determined. A clue to the answer, however, may have been provided by a woman who said she could "hardly stand to watch" the telecasts reconstructing the assassination and outlying the report. She had tears in her eyes when she said that the program "nearly tore me up." It is possible that a citizenry shocked by the assassination of its president and by the brutal events following that act may not be ready to relive the tragic experience by reading a thorough report on it only a few months later. Barry Affacks Johnson As Security Foe ' By JOHN A. GOLDSMITH United Press International MARIETTA, Ohio (UPI) — Republican presidential nominee Barry Goldwater brought his whistle-stop campaign train into Ohio today and attacked President Johnson as "the. chief enemy of the Social Security system today." In tie first back - platform speech from his 17 - car campaign train, Goldwater also wrapped himself in the mantle of the late Robert A. Taft, former Ohio senator who was "Mr. Republican" for many in the GOP. Introduced by Robert Taft Jr., GOP candidate for the Senate, Goldwater described the former'senator as "one of my best friends," and said they worked closely together in the Senate. Goldwater spoke under sodden skies which opened into a gentle rain while he was speaking. A crowd estimated by police at 5,000 to 7,000 stood in the rain to listen. Goldwater complained that he has been unable to debate campaign issues with the President. He said Johnson leaves to dedicate a dame whenever he raises a campaign question. "If Khruschev ever called him on the hot line, all he'd get would be a beagle," Goldwater said. Cites Security Record Goldwater prefaced his comments on the Social Security system by saying that he wanted to combat what he called "the power to distort." He said hie has Voted for every proposal to improve the Social Security system ^ and against measures which would harm it. To say that lie is against Social - Security, Goldwater said, is one pf the bigger "political lies." In another facet of his remarks,.-Goldwater also criticized . president Johnson's response 'to the recent FBI reports on big city riots and . [-pledged that he would muster the full persuasive powers of the presidency' to combat that problem. Goldwater referred to an FBI report, compiled at John! son's order and made public ..last weekend, on riots in sey- ' eral cities, both North and j South. The FBI said it had found no common pattern or racial source for the disturbances. Speaking of Johnson's response, to the report, Goldwater said: "Simply suggesting that a ! conference of law enforcement officials be held at some future 'appropriate time' is not enough. Take Immediate Action "If Lyndon Johnson will not take adequate steps to bring the full persuasive powers of the presidency to bear upon this problem, I can pledge to you that, as president and vice president, Bill Miller and I would take immediate steps in (Continued on page 6) Former Jackson Central Principal Given Local Post Mississippi To Use Rewards To Curb Bombing By United Press International Rewards totaling $3,500 were offered today in an attempt to curb terrorist bombers in two areas, of Mississippi. A citizens group in McComb, Miss, put up $2,500 for information leading to the arrests of the persons responsible for recent racial bombings in southwest Mississippi. Jackson Mayor Allen Thompson, said $1,000 would be paid fqr information leading to the arrest of the nightriders who have struck at least twice in the capital city area. "We are no longer dealing with a question of segregation,' the McComb citizens group said. "We are faced with the definite possibility that the life of this community is it stake." Thompson made a similar plea. Within the past month, there have been at least 10 bombings in McComb, Miss., and two in Natchez, Miss., including the house of the mayor. The blasts largely involved Negro homes or churches. Aaron Henry, Mississippi president of the National Association for the advancement of Colored People (NAACP), wired President Johnson, Monday, asking for federal protection, for Negroes in Mississippi. Two grand juries held separate investigations in Mississippi Monday of the deaths of three civil rights workers. In Philadelphia, Miss., the Neshoba County grand jury heard testimony from four state troopers, while a federal grand jury at Biloxi heard from two prisoners who had shared jail cells with the workers.

Castro Admits Cuban Regime Deeply In Red MIAMI (UPI) — Cuban Premier Fidel Castro indicated Monday night that his government is in the red economically almost as much as it is politically, he blamed his plight on "deadbeat" tenants living in confiscated houses and apartments. Castro said the Cuban government, as landlord of the dwellings seized by the thousands from their rightful owners during the past four years, really should evict the delinquent tenants. "The revolution can never evict a family for not paying the rent," the premier said in a 2-hour speech broadcast by Radio Havana. He indicated, however, this generosity wasn't due entirely to sentiment. "Where would they go?" he asked. "A city the size of Havana would be needed to accommodate all the tenants who could be evicted for not paying their rent." Havana has a population of about one' million persons. Despite these "deadbeats," Castro said, he plans to end food rationing within one year. iFood rationing, along with restrictions on clothing and all consumer items, has been in effect on the Communist island since 1962. Castro did not spell out his plan but he said: "We must fix a limit, for the coming year, for the end of rationing books. We are going to. make a pledge right now to the Cuban people (to end rationing) without damaging other efforts in other aspects of the economy." The bearded premier "suggested," however, that Cubans be prepared to forgo their traditional Christmas, feast of roast pork this year and probably next "to conserve the pig supply."
