Seat Belts Prevent Injury In Mishap Here Seat belts were credited today with preventing injury . to a motorist whose car crashed into the rear of a farm wagon near Tipton Wednesday afternoon. Tipton County Sheriff's Deputy Robert McFarland said seat belts worn by William J. Wylam, 55, of Muncie, probably are what prevented injury to the man when his car crashed into the wagon on S. R. 28, about 3 VJ miles-west of U.S. 31. Wylam was driving east at about 60 m.p.h. when he struck the wagon in the westbound lane of S. R. 28. Both Wylam and Jackson R. Mendenhall, 18, of Rou,te 1, Kempton, driver of the tractor pulling the wagon, escaped injury. The tractor and wagon were turning into a driveway on the north side of the highway when Wylam's car hit the rear and left side of the wagon. The vehicle overturned, spilling corn onto the road. The Mendenhall youth said he did not signal before attempting the turn. Wylam's car left 120 'feet of skid marks before impact. Damage to the farm wagon and bed is estimated at $300. The impact also caused about $500 damage to the front of Wylam's car.

President Johnson, Republican presidential candidate Sen. Barry M. Goldwater, both vice presidential hopefuls and former President Dwight D. Eisenhower all put aside affairs of state and the political arena to attend the brief services ai the St. Bartholomew's Protes- ; tant Episcopal -Church. * More than 17,500 - persons from-every strata of life filed solemnly past the flag-draped bier Wednesday to pay last respects to the former U. S. President, humanitarian and . elder stateman who died Tuesday at the age-of 90. More thousands of mourners were availed the opportunity to view Hoover's casket today, both before and after the 4:30 p.m. EDT rites which were closed to all but "an invited list of guests. Approximately 400 persons were in line outside the church this morning when the bronze doors were opened to mourners. The weather was, sunny but brisk. " Moved To Capital The church doors were to be open to the public from 9 a.m. 'until 3 p.m. and from 5 p.m. West Branch, Iowa, where Hoover was born. . ' •. The Rev. Dr. Terance J. Finlay, pastor of the' stately 125- year-old church, planned a simple, 20-minute service without eulogy for the late Chief Executive. The only referenc to Hoover by name was in a special prayer Dr. Finlay composed. It commends unto God's eternal presence "thy servant, Herbert Clark Hoover." " Although Hoover.was a Quaker, his family chose St. Bartholomew's Church for the services because it is across iPark Avenue from the Waldorf Astoria where Hoover lived for 31 years after leaving the White House and because his wife, Mrs. Lou Henry Hoover, was buried from there in 1944. The former President's two sons, former Undersecretary of State Herbert Hoover Jr. and Allan, briefly visited the columned marble sanctuary of the church to view the coffin Wednesday afternoon. One of Hoover's, closest longtime friends, : Adm. Lewis Strauss, former chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC), also paid his respects. Stricken Saturday Hoover, a • publip servant for 50 years, was stricken with massive internal bleeding last Saturday. He battled gamely' against his fourth serious illness in two years, but on Tuesday his heart failed. •Hoover, a mining engineer by. profession, served' in the cabinets of Warren Harding and' Calvin' Coolidge before being elected to the presidency in 1928. His tenure in the White House ended in 1933 at the height of the great depression— an economic disaster which the Democrats used as a campaign issue to' defeat him. Embittered at the charges, Hoover did not reenter government service until the 1950s when he headed a commission studying government economy for ex-President Harry S Truman. He served similarly for former President Eisenhower. , In recent years, the elder statesman was virtually withdrawn from public life but devoted vast hours to his correspondence and writing.

This year, the proposal was resubmitted in the form of a move to raise dues $5 a year across the board. Petitions were circulated seeking rejection of the proposal. Delegates were expected to adopt, however, resolutions to raise the state minimum salaries for teachers, give teachers legal procedures for dealing with school boards, and to take General Motors Workers To Vote Friday on Dispute He described the Tipton response as "disappointing" to all those who had given their time to the fund raising, but added that some businesses andL industries had not completed t their . reports and felt that fhese |"<tonld considerably boost; the final'total.

Janitor Saved By Widow, 85 NEW YORK (UPI) — After admitting the janitor to her apartment to putty the window, Mrs. Junia Bower, 85, turned back to her newspaper. " Hearing a sudden cry, Mrs. Bower looked up to see only the feet of the 250-pound man protruding over the window ledge. The rest of his body dangled outside the building—six stories above the street. Mrs. Bower, a frail arthritis sufferer, grabbed the janitor, Aaron Kodish, by the ankles, braced herself against the window frame and both yelled for all they were worth. For 10 minutes Wednesday, Mrs. Bower clung' to the hulking 52-year-old man — too weak to pull him back- inside but too determined to let him go. Finally, another building em­ ploye and • several tenants rushed into • the' Bower apartment and pulled Kodish back through the window. He had stumbled out when a metal guard broke loose behind him, but he managed to hook his knees over the sill and hold an end of the guard-with one hand. "Thank God for this lady," said the.badly shaken janitor. Mrs. Bower, also emotionally overwrought by the experience, went to bed to regain her composure. . "She's not too well ... she's quite shaken by it; all," her daughter, Mrs. Mildred KurU, said Wednesday night. He said India is. a non-aligned country rather than a neutral and defined a neutral country as one. that has stated it will not fight, regardless of the is- jsues.
