Managers of 18 downtown stores have been notifed by fire inspectors that the false fronts on their buildings must be eqivipped with knock-out panels that would aid in life-saving and ventilation in case of a fire. The recently remodeled C. R. Anthony Dept. Store, 22 North Main, is the only building that has met the fire code's new standard regarding such panels. The other stores have received copies of the new ordi- Mental Unit Staff Grows Mrs. Emma L. Schroeder, Moundridge, this week joined the Kingman-Reno County Mental Health Center as a social worker.

(AP) -Legislation calling for a form of no- fault automobile insurance coverage will be introduced in Nebraska's 1972 Legislature, State Insurance Director Sam Van Pelt has said. He said Nebraska is one of 11 states in which no such system has yet been proposed. Pressure is developing and the Nixon administration considers no-fault auto insurance a "major domestic issue" he stated. The comments came as Van Pelt debated the subject with Craig Spangenberg, a Cleveland, Ohio, attorney at the annual meeting of the Nebraska Bar Association. nance and are being inspected. After inspection they will bo given 90 days to comply. Tlie code, adopted in August, applies to buildings of two or more stories whoss front windows have bsen blocked up by a front. T'ha front must contain one section that could be quickly removed from inside or out in an emergency. Tom Koch, fire inspector, said one store, in an attempt to meet the new standards, put screws in the knock-out panel. "I guess they just weren't thinking—I can see us getting out a screwdriver in the middle of a big fire." The panels are marked with a handle and a small seal on the outside. Koch says owners of the buildings have expressed a readiness to cooperate. About the only question raised so far is that of what will keep burglars from entering the buildings through these panels. Koch says he believes, though, that it would take less nerve for a burglar to smash a first-story window and crawl through than to take a ladder on Main and climb to the access panel. Adoption of the new code was prompted by the death last January of two women in a fire at Wiley Home Fashions, 108 North Main. The women, trapped on the second floor of the two-story stuc- tnrc, could not be reached by firemen because of the front which blocked the second story windows facing Main. Neither was there an opening through which the firemen could direct their hoses to the front of the second floor. The north and south sides of Home Fashions was bounded by other buildings. "We don't know whether we would have been able to save them had there been no false front," Koch says, "but we may have had a better chance." Multi-story buildings which are not required to have access panels are those that have side windows and are situated on a corner. W .v Handle marks spot.

Frisco Strike Ends SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Cemetery workers have voted to end a four-month strike and burials resume today at 11 cemeteries just south of San Francsico. Dog Food Label Drive Scheduled A total of 300,000 coupons from the labels of Vet's cat and dog food cans will buy a blind Kansan a seeing-eye dog. A project to collect that many labels will be launched next week by the women's auxiliary of the VFW, post 1361. Mrs. O. T. Trott, 920 East 14th, the auxiliary's junior vice president, says that beginning next week donors may drop the labels into miniature dog houses that will be placed in the Dillon Stores, Fitzgerald Groceries, and possibly other stores. Every 100 labels collected will count 50 cents toward the required $1,500 which includes the cost of the dog and the recipient's round trip to Columbus, Ohio for a four-week training course with the dog. Mrs. Trott says persons who know of a possible recipient or persons who wish to become a recipient may contact the VFW for more information. The program is sponsored by the Pilot Guide Dog Foundation in Chicago. Police Warn About Phony Solicitation Police warn local businesses, to beware of an unidentified man who has reportedly solicited a store for donations to a fund for underprivileged children. Reports are that the man requested funds from at least one downtown firm last week. One of the firm's employes said the man said he was connected with the Bethel AME church and its pastor, Rev. Alvin Larkin. Rev. Larkin has, however, notified police that his church is sponsoring no such fund-raising Larkin also reported that a man appeared at his church last week and asked if any mail for an underprivileged children's fund had bean sent to the church or parsonage. Larkin said he questioned the man as to why his mail should be sent there, but got neither a name or address from him Hutchinson News Wednesday, Oct. 6, 1971 Page 24 IRREGULAR? DUE TO LACK OF FOOD " BULK IN YOUR DIET • n */aa . BRflN Pinkston 'Guilty' of 5 Extortion Counts A district court jury Tuesday afternoon acquitted Donald Pinkston, 23, Burrton, of felonious assault, but found him guilty of five counts of extor tion. He was accused of felonious assault in connection with the firing of shots into the home of William Murphy, 4103 North Monroe, on Dec. 29, 1969. The extortion charges stemmed from five threatening phone calls made to the Mttrphys later demanding $2,000. The jury of four women and eight men received the case shortly before noon Tuesday j and deliberated, following a lunch break, until 5 p.m. Judge William Gossage delayed sentencing pending the outcome of a new trial motion, which is expected to be filed. The defense was based on the testimony of Pinkston and six alibi witnesses, all of whom are relatives of the defendant. Pinkston testified he was at his home when shots were fired Into the Murphy home at 9:45 p.m. He told jurors he drove home after picking up his brother at work in Hutchinson at 6:30 p .m He stayed at home with Mark, another brother, and his father, until after 10 p .m. , la closing argument, defeat* attorney Jack Leighnor criticized the police depart­ ment for failing to lift fingerprints from one of the three telephones Pinkston allegedly used to make the calls. "At least they'd have been more positive about who they were pointing a finger at," he said. Leighnor told jurors he was "quite certain" Pinkston wouldn't be on trial if police had taken fingerprints. County Attorney Porter Brown urged the panel not to let Leighnor "switch your attention in the case from the real issue to something else." He noted that every person who testified for Pinkston was a relative. "Surely in the six days (the duration of the shooting and the phone calls) be would have run into somebody who wasn't a relative," he said. SENSATIONAL SAVINGS! on BRIGHTEN-UP DULL.
