Let's Clothe Pickets Beg iCeui flark Etetra J Dispatch To The Sentinel WASHINGTON Pickets pa- raded in front of the White House' yesterday, demanding that Mrs. John F. Kennedy put ciotftes on her horses. ? The crusade to put Bermudas on boxers and jump suits on cats is being conducted by a jion-profit or-1 ganization, the Society for Indecen- cy to Naked Animals. -Its motto: "Clothe all animals." Its purpose: "To protect our children from the sight of naked horses, cows, dogs and cats." THE FOUNDER and president , of SINA is G. Clifford 'Pn'iifc Jr., 32, Greenwich Village, Nework City. The organization was ?et up ; under terms of a will left four years f ago by his father, G. Clifford Prout ; Sr., St. Louis real estate man. The Prout estate, estimated at T about $400,000, was earmarked for encouraging animal decency. Officials of SINA said attempts have been made by some relatives : to break the will, but they have i been unsuccessful. I- White House picket lines were set up early yesterday morning by three SINA members who had flown : down from New York City. They were to be joined later in the day -t by SINA members hiking 45 miles from Baltimore. i ONE PICKET carried a poster: "Mrs. Kennedy, won't you pleas clothe your horses for decency?" Another carried a sign: "Mr. President, the indecency of naked-"; animals can be corrected through new federal laws and SINA (we are now over 50,000)." Bruce Spencer, New York former tire salesman who is the $10,-000-a-year executive vice president of SINA, said the decision to picket the White House was based on the . ffl JmMS b JTT : ; Litter. , z,i I i i i ii 1 1 f.Vf r : , t , t PICKETS S5v CLOTHES ON CAPITAL PETS . . .Bill Moran, Jeanne Spencer picket White House mh Architects Draninfr Of Proposeil Continental Apartments Those Pets. Of Jackie hope Mrs. Kennedy might be persuaded to set the pattern for clothing animals. "We hope Mrs. Kennedy will respond, maybe even do it just for fashion's sake, we don't care," Spencer said. "Just so we can say, 'The first lady of the land has put Bermuda shorts on her horses, so why don't you?' " Spencer suggested appropriate clothing for. Caroline Kennedy's pony, Macaroni, might be trousers or shorts. "IT WOULD become a fad, and at the same time further our crusade," he said. "We're dead serious about this." Spencer said he clads his own dog in Bermuda shorts and his cat in a jump suit. Prout clothed his baby deer in trunks, but he finally gave the deer away a year ago because of a heavy travel schedule. SINA headquarters, at 50? Fifth Ave., New York, supplies free patterns for animal clothes, such as knickers for dogs and bikinis for stallions. "We don't accept any money, not even dues from our 50,000 members," Spencer said. "And our application form seeks to weed out the jokers. We don't want any crackpots." He said the membership includes two members of Congress, whom he declined to name, and many executives of large corporations. "Folks laugh at us. we don't "nirtd," he went on. "We're glad to fearve them laugh. We think that is the first step in getting them interested." SPENCER SAID no effort will be made to clothe sheep and other field animals. "That would be ridiculous," he said. "We don't want to get into any off-beat thing."

Kinney, who heads the venture named Continental Apartments Inc. Plans are now being completed by the group to request a "special use permit" from the Winter Park planning and zoning board to raze the 50-year-old Seminole Hotel on Lake Osceola so that construction may be started on the three-unit S-shaped apartment complex. Located near the heart of downtown Winter Park, the developers consider the 4.5 acre site to be "ideal" because of its proximity to "the cultural activities, for which Winter Park is noted." THE NEW complex, which will retain the name "Seminole," has been designed by Howard Chilton, Palm Beach architect. Chilton, a native Floridian, has become widely known for his unique concept of apartments especially designed for Florida living. Among the many features incorporated in his plans is the unusual "eyebrow" construction, which offords maximum protection from the elements and complete privacy for each apartment. Plans call for one, two and three bedroom units in each of the buildings. Each of the living rooms and master bedrooms will open onto a private balcony overlooking Lake Osceola. The first unit to be constructed will be known as Seminole East, with Seminole South and Seminole North to be completed at later dates. Butler and Varner, Winter Park realtors, have been designated as sales agents for the anartments. Individual apartments are scheduled to range in price from $30,-000 to $60,000. Cubans Protest 'Aggressive' Acts HAVANA (UPI) The Castro regime, emulating Communist China, yesterday issued formal denunciations Nos. 192 and 193 protesting alleged aggressive acts of U. S. warships and marines. Marine guards at the U. S. naval base of Guantanamo were accused of throwing stones and hurling insults at Cuban sentries in the area un at least four occasions Sunday. U. S. destroyers were accused of three acts of "harassment" against Cuban fishing boats. The- denunciations, issued by Raoul Castro's armed forces ministry, coincided with delivery by Cuban Foreign Minister Raoul Roa of a note to UN Sec. Gen. Thant alleging U. S. violations of the UN charter. In Bessemer By Sentinel Services A tornado darted into a business section near the center of Bessemer, Ala., shattering buildings and whipping a stunt man atop a 40-foot pole like a fly rod. At least 12 persons were hospitalized here and in nearby Birmingham and Bessemer Mayor Jess Lanier, who called for national guardsmen to help prevent looting, estimated conservatively the damage will run "into the millions." Streets in the business section and in outlying residential areas where scores of homes were destroyedwere dark as night fell because of fallen power lines. COLLAPSED buildings mostly small stores in a two-block area about four blocks from the center of Bessemer was searched for other possible victims of the twister that struck suddenly at mid-afternoon from a squall line sweeping across Alabama toward Georgia. , A tornado alert was out !for Northern Georgia last night. One man rode out the tornadic winds in a small house atop a 40-foot pole on the edge of the heaviest hit area. The man, an employe of a local radio station, was perched on the pole in a promotion stunt. THE HOWLING winds whipped the pole like a fly rod but he later slid down to safety. The Red Cross said its initial reports from residential areas indicated that 75 to 100 homes were "completely or almost completely destroyed." Fashionable homes in the Moun-tainbrook section of Birmingham were reported damaged by the winds after they tore through the Bessemer area. Flood waters drowned seven persons and drove hundreds of families from their homes Tuesday as rain or snow fell on wide areas of the eastern half of the nation. From one to two inches of rain in 24 hours soaked parts of Tennessee, Kentucky and West Virginia. A waning storm that caught its second wind blanketed Omaha, Neb. with a 10-inch snowfall which caused vast morning rush hour traffic jams. WESTERN AND Central Iowa were blanketed under as much as 10 inches of new snow. Many schools were closed and driving was hazardous. Snow and freezing rain slicked roads in Eastern Kansas and Nebraska and from. Northern Missouri, Iowa and Southern Minnesota eastward into Southern Michigan. Rains that doused many sections of the Midwest and East earlier this week sent floodwaters pouring over sections of Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. The murky Ohio River, fed by rain and thaw-swollen tributaries, swelled toward flood stage from Wheeling, W. Va., southward into Kentucky. The swirling Ohio River backwaters caused at least five drownings three in West Virginia and two in Ohio. A man and his teenage daughter were missing and feared drowned in the Whitewater River in Indiana. A hine-car Baltimore & Ohio passenger and express train was derailed west of Chillicothe, Ohio. Floodwaters washed out a section of the track. Unified Defense Plan Okayed In Britain LONDON (H) Britain's Conservative Govt last night won parliamentary approval of a unified defense command despite Laborite charges that it was a maneuver to divert attention from the "Skybolt fiasco." The House of Commons rejected 333-237 a Labor no confidence motion along straight party lines. The plan for reorganizing the three armed services under one co-ordinated command was then endorsed 323-237. i f7: J-- 5 S v ,t 1 f If Tornado Strikes Portion of damage can be seen in Bessemer, Ala., where tornado cut through two city blocks yesterday in business district. Tin roofing was rolled into giant ball in street and other sections dangled from telephone lines. (UPI Tele-photo to The Sentinel last night) AilitiiiiMrnlion ot Of People' Ex-Gen. Walker Flays JFK On Wide Range Of Topics SAVANNAH, Ga. (JPI Former Gen. Edwin A. Walker, who resigned his army commission because of political views, strongly criticized the Kennedy administration again last night. Walker had voiced similar criticism in a speech Monday night at Tampa. The former general, who figured prominently in the recent racial disturbances at the University of Mississippi, said the Kennedy administration was "not a Govt of the people." "An administration is temporary unless it becomes a dictatorship or a dynasty," Walker said. TURNING TO other matters, Walker said he "would refuse to lead troops under a United Nations flag. Furthermore, I refuse to be a member of a party that will place military power in the hands of the United Nations." On Cuba, Walker said, "We brought back 1,100 Cuban prisoners, but gave up seven million Cubans to Kremlin control." "The entire Cuban operation was a farce," Walker said. "It was not ransom we paid, but foreign aid. The medicine that was sent to Cuba was on its way to Moscow in a matter of hours." "THE ONLY advantage the U.S. Swope Estate Goes To Wife The estate and will of Sidney M. Swope was filed yesterday with Orange County Judge George Adams. The well-known Orlando civic leader and president of Orlando Transit Co. died Feb. 2(i leaving an estate approximated at $50,000, all in personal property. This amount does not include any point holdings of Mr. Swope and his widow, Mrs. Jean Swope, 514 Lakeview Ave. In his will, he requested that one-half of his gross estate go to his wife outright, with the remainder placed in trust for her future support. Named as trustees for the estate were his wife, State Supreme Court Justice Campbell Thornal and Orlando City Atty. John G. Baker. Baker and Mrs. Swope were named executors of the estate. Expense Account Tax Hurts WASHINGTON OP) Business in what an industry organization calls "known expense account restaurants" in 40 major cities dropped 16.4 pet. in the first two months of 1963. The industry blamed the tax collector's crackdown on expense accounts. 4 r l.IJr : fir X EDWIN A. WALKER . . . Cuban operation a farce gained from the Cuban crisis was that Khrushchev might be able to call the next summit conference in Havana," he said. Walker included in his attack the Eisenhower administration, the Marshall Plan, the handling of the Laos problem, the U.S. position in Viet Nam, the Korean War, the European Common Market, the Central Intelligence Agency, the U.S. federal court system, and the U.S. State Dept.
