OTTAWA HERALD VOL. 67 NO. 82 OTTAWA, KANSAS SATURDAY, MARCH 16, 1963 7 CENTS EIGHT PAGES Plane Missing With 41 SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) - A four-engine Bolivian airliner with 41 persons aboard was missing today and believed to have crashed in a sparsely settled area near the Chile-Bolivia border. Chile and Boliva temporarily shelved their border dispute to join in the search. One American, identified as Leon Bernstein, was included on the list of 36 passengers from 12 countries. Chile and Bolivia broke off diplomatic relations last year, but put aside their differences in the search. The Chilean government supplied military search planes and let Bolivian searchers fly over Chilean territory. The missing plane, a DC6, left the Chilean port of Arica about noon Friday and was due at La Paz, Bolivia, at 1 p.m. EST. It carried enough fuel to last until 4:30 p.m. Charge Soviet Violation WASHINGTON (AP) - The State Department reported today that two Soviet reconnaissance planes flew over Alaska Friday, in violation of U.S. air space. The United States protested to Moscow today "these overflights of U.S. territory." A note released by the State Department declared the U.S. government "expects that the Soviet government will take all nee essary measures to prevent any repetition." A spokesman said that "this is the first clearly established incident of a Soviet overflight of the United States." Officials said privately that there was no interception by American fighter planes. Hie two planes flying separate courses were over U.S. territory for about 25 minutes each, the protest note said. This was in the region of Kuskokwim Bay. The bay lies at the southwest corner of Alaska just north of the beginning of the Aleutian Islam chain. The State Department charting of the courses of the aircraf showed that one approached Alas ka across the bay from the south west and flew off to the west crossing over Nunivak Island. The other departed on a more north westerly course, flying over Nel son Island. The Soviet government an nounced it had received the U.S protest a few minutes before the State Department issued its statement on the overflights. In Palm Beach, Fla., Press Secretary Pierre Salinger said the White House would have no comment on the situation. K-State Elects A Nebraskan MANHATTAN, Kan.

(Herald Photo by Lamar Phillips) Would Bar United States Aid To Communist-Soaked Brazil By RAYMOND J. CROWLEY WASHINGTON (AP) - An official U.S. statement that Communists have bored into Brazil's government put new steam today into a congressional movement to bar aid to the huge, trouble-racked South American country. Pouring more millions into Brazil now would be "an exercise in futility," one congressman said. There were demands that assistance be denied until Brazil cleans house of Reds or extreme leftists in any positions of power, and shows that American aid will not be used to promote Brazilian trade with Russia. The U.S. statement about Red infiltration came out at a time when Francisco San Tiago Dantas, Brazilian finance minister, was here trying for multi-million dollar aid. A powerful man in the Brazilian government, he is an advocate of a soft policy toward Communist Cuba. On Thursday, a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee issued a transcript of testimony attributing the following statement to Lincoln Gordon, U.S. Ambassador to Brazil: "Their number (the Communists in Brazil) is small but their influence is much larger than those numbers would suggest. The principal field of infiltration and influence is in the labor unions. "In the government itself there has been infiltration. The student movement is another major area of penetration, with the National Student Union now being dominated by Communists." This statement was reported to have brought a hot, indighant reaction in government circles in Brasilia. Evidently, the State Department felt Gordon might meet an embarrassing receptio|» when he returned there. H : The department got out a statement saying the remarks had been submitted to the House subcommittee by the department it- self, not by Gordon. Still later it was explained that the department and Gordon were really in accord on the remarks. The Communist Party is outlawed in Brazil and no known Communists hold important posts in the government. However, the party operates openly and six men it backed in last October's election won seats in the Chamber of Deputies. Also, left wing nationalists hold several high offices. Brazil's foreign minister. Hermes Lima, expressed regret over the state department's assertion. "I lament that an occasion such as this publicity should have been given the testimony" in the subcommittee report, he told a reporter Friday night. In Washington, Rep. William H. Harsha Jr., R-Ohio, called attention to a recent acknowledgment by Dantas that U.S. aid money would be used in part to promote trade with all countries, "including Russia." "At a time when we are using American tax dollars in the al liance for progress to try to strengthen Latin America agains Communism," Harsha said, think it would be an exercise in futility to turn over money to Brazil so it can promote trade with Russia."

Goren Or Jacoby? ST. LOUIS (AP)-Charles Goren and Oswald Jacoby, old warriors of the game of bridge, renewed a 20-year feud today over who's the world's best player. Goren, 62, and Jacoby, 60, said in an interview each is better than the other. Neither is an introvert. "I don't have to rely on gimmicks like challenges to keep my reputation," Goren said. "My credo is dignity and that is why I have never participated in any 'showdown 1 playoff with anyone. In fact, I have studiously avoided it." Jacoby repeated his offer to play Goren anytime. "But, of course, Goren won't play me. Why, if you asked the top 100 bridge players to name the best four, I'd be one. Goren might make 1 per cent of the lists." The two, probably the nation's most publicized bridge players, joined 3,000 others in the American Contract Bridge League's spring nationals here. They are playing, Jacoby said, "strictly for glory, for fun, or both." Each is seeking bridge's top two trophies — the blue ribbon team championship for the Vanderbilt cup and the McKenney trophy. "I understand I have already won the McKenney trophy," Jacoby said. "I have little doubt I'll be in on the Vanderbilt cup, too." Goren, who plays in only three tournaments a year and spends most of his time traveling and writing syndicated columns, said he could win it all. "But.I've al- ready won more than 40 national bridge championships, so why should I knock myself out trying for more?" Goren, a bachelor who could pass for a college professor or diplomat, said he has written 35 books on bridge with a total circulation of eight million copies. "That's more than all other bridge writers in the history of the world," he said. Jacoby, a fast-talking white- haired former naval officer, said he doesn't confine his writing to bridge. "I'm an authority on po- ker, gin and just about any card game you can name—and I writ about all of them." He said hi books have sold two millio copies. Jacoby's total of master's point based on tournaments won, at 7 200 is about 50° higher than Gor en's. This is his main claim t world pre-eminence. But Goren says this is no basi for ruling who's best. "Jacob can worry about points while am busy running to the bank Anyone can tell you I'm still o top." Youths On Shooting, Driving Rampage Leave Two Dead FAIRFIELD, Calif. (AP)-Two een-agers shot and drove a de- tructive path through this rural California district Friday, police said, leaving in the wake a highway patrolman dead with a bullet n his neck, a deputy sheriff dlled in a grinding automobile rash and a man shot in the ;roin. The teen-agers lay injured in a lospital. Both faced double mur- ler charges. Solano County sheriff's deputies iaid Richard Price, 18, a three- time parolee, admitted shoting alifornia Highway Patrolman Charles H. Sorenson, 32, and caus- ng the smashup that killed Sherff's Deputy Hale Humphrey, 42. His alleged accomplice was Tack Sikes, 16, who ran away rom home five weeks ago. Both are from Sacramento, Calif. "They look crummy, and they don't seem to much care," an of- icer said bitterly as he described the tall, lean, long-haired youths— whose wild ride, said Price, followed an argument he had with his girl friend. Officers and eyewitnesses said the pair strode into a gas station near Lodi—a town 70 miles east of San Francisco. Price entered the rest room and found William Kempe, 65, of Chewelah, Wash., who was waiting for his car to be repaired. Price pulled a gun, Kempe shoved him, the gun went off and Kempe was shot in the groin. Price and Sikes jumped into a car belonging to Bob McCaulley, 36, co-owner of the station, and sped off. Sorenson heard a lookout alert for the car, spotted it, whipped a quick u-turn and pursued. Thirty miles from Lodi the chased and the chaser roared across the Sacramento River over highway 12's Rio Vista Bridge. But Price drove his car into • telephone pole. The youths raced to a nearby abandoned house. Sorenson followed, gun drawn. He stepped around a corner of tht house. Price lifted a gun at point-blank range and killed Sorenson with a bullet in the neck. He and Sikes sped off in the dead officer's car. Twenty miles passed—at speeds estimated to 130 miles an hour. Sheriff's officers had set a roadblock with two trucks and a car six miles east of Fairfield. Price and Sikes plunged into the road block and a hail of bullets. Price and Sikes were pulled from the wreckage—apparently saved because they used the car's safety belts—and were taken to • Fairfield hospital. Price was in critical condition. Sikes' condition was fair. Kempe, in another hospital, was reported in good condition.

Young people of the Ottawa area were taking to the open road this weekend like Castro took to Soviet missiles. For a real walking feat, consider the five Williamsburg lads who left Beto Junction at 5:45 p.m. Friday and hiked to Topeka, a near-50-mile jaunt, in 14 hours, arriving at 8 a.m. today. For one of the more unusual adventures, consider the two Ottawa girls who left a dance near midnight last night at Paola for a walk to Ottawa via Garnett, a-fixing their hair along the way in preparation for another dance tonight. And for numbers, you couldn't beat the more than a score of Ottawa Junior High Girls Athletic Association members who left Ottawa this morning for a roundtrip march to Baldwin. The Williamsburg boys, Ted Buckley, Phil Piersol, Larry Mil- liken, Eddie Ransom and Gary Malburg, really picked them up and put them down. At 10 last night, they called home, from Lyndon. And early this morning they called again from Topeka. The dancing, walking, hah> fixing girls are Judy McCurdy and Gayle Pate. Judy's mother. Mrs. Ralph Wilson, 316 S. Oak, said the girls left Ottawa, via automobile, at 7 last night for th« dance in Paola. After dancing until midnight, they set out on th« hike to Garnett. They were expected to walk back into Ottawa today, their hair all in plac« for another round of dancing tonight. The GAAs of Ottawa Junior High set out this morning along the old Santa Fe railroad track to Baldwin. Accompanying them were teachers, Helen Rensch and Naomi Fisher.

Ask "More Relevant" -4 Southern Baptist View FORT WORTH (AP)-Dr. Herschel Hobbs of Oklahoma City, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, describes a proposed revision of the statement of Southern Baptist belief as more relevant to modern times. If adopted by the convention, he said, it will be the first new statement of the Baptist faith and message since 1925. About 10,000 delegates to the annual assembly will convene in Kansas City in May. Dr. Hobbs said in an interview Friday the revision includes a passage on academic freedom, an issue which is causing turmoil in the country's largest Protestant denomination. He said the new 4,500-word version does not vary from the basic content of the 1925 statement, but an effort has been made to make it "more relevant to the conditions under which we now live." Dr. Hobbs said a theological controversy among Southern Baptists pointed to the need for changes. The controversy focused on Dr. Ralph Elliott, and his book "The Message of Genesis." He was dismissed at Midwest Theological Seminary in Kansas City when he refused to withdraw it from publication. Many Baptists felt Dr. Elliott's interpretation of Genesis, as a meaningful and symbolic story and not necessarily literal truth, controverted Southern Baptist beliefs and cast doubt on the authority of the Bible. Dr. Hobbs said the passage on academic freedom in the new statement was not directed at the Elliott case or any other. The new passage reads: "In Christian education then should be proper balance between academic freedom and academic responsibility. "Freedom in any orderly relationship of human life is always limited and never absolute. Th« freedom of a teacher in a Christian school, college, or seminary is limited by the pre-eminence of Jesus Christ, by the authoritative nature of the scriptures, and by the distinct purpose for which the school exists." Dr. Hobbs said the revised statement has been issued to members of the convention. The statement is not a creed, he said, but "shall serve as information to the churches, as t guide to the various agencies of the Southern Baptist Convention."
