Cary told Congress: "Government and industry regulation and the efforts of the fi- nancial community must continue to be directed against practices which undermine the integrity of the securities markets and which can only be harmful to the economic growth of this country and to the investors who furnish the funds for that growth." The commission delivered to Congress a 1,600-page report on its $l-million study of the securities industry—a study that inevitably focused on shady practices. It contained proposals for legis- lation, new regulations, and tighter controls by industry groups to drive out crooked or unqualified salesmen; to purify the advice pouring from tipsters; to prevent the kind of, manipulation that boosts new "hot issues" to outrageous prices, and to guarantee the public more solid information about companies floating stock. Cary said not all recommendations of staff investigators "have yet been adopted" by the commission, itself. With the comment that "grave abuses do oc- cur," he added that the commission will undertak a continuing study of problems uncovered: Despite abuses, Cary continued "the picture presented is not one of pervasive fradulent activity" such as developed at Senate hearings which produced securities laws in the early '30s. SEC provided Congress in the report today enough material to occupy Senate and House subcommittees for the remainder of this session. And there's more to come. Cheney, Spencer, Hudelson, Smith J. R. Cheney, a former Ottawa mayor, was elected to the position of city commissioner of finance and revenue in yesterday's city election, defeating Lyle Hanes by a margin of 1475 to 10. The three named as new members of the board of education of School District No. 30 are Dr. John Hudelson, Ray V. Smith and Mrs. Elizabeth Spencer. The others who were candidates for school board positions are Mrs. Ethel Rule Seymour, Dr. Don McKelvey and Vern Chesbro. Cheney, in winning the race for city commissioner, carried all of the 11 precincts in Ottawa. Dr. Hudelson, who received the highest number of votes of any of the candidates, carried nine of the 11 precincts and was tied with Mrs. Seymour for the high vote in another. The results indicated that the voters of the community wanted to place on the board of education a member from the area outside Ottawa. Ray V. Smith, the only candidate falling into this category, carried the outlying area of the school district, and carried one Ottawa precinct. In other precincts he ran well, being among the top three candidates in the voting in most of the precincts. In the final count he was the second candidate in the running. Dr. Hudelson has a total of 1554 votes, Smith 1266 and Mrs. Spencer 1233. Dr. Don McKelvey ran fourth, with 1175, Mrs. Seymour fifth with 924 and Vern Chesbro sixth with 820. The total vote for city commissioner was 2,335. This is 55 per cent of the registered voters in Ottawa. The city commissioners will canvass the vote on Friday at the city hall. Cheney, who succeeds Charles Queen as commissioner of finance and revenue, is scheduled to take his office oath at the close of the city commission meeting one week from tonight. Commissioner Queen declined to seek re-election. Other memgers of the city commission are Mayor Charles Williamson and James Grogan, commissioner of streets and public utilities. Following the canvass of the votes, certificates of election are issued. .It will then be necessary for Cheney to qualify for the office by arranging a bond, approved by the district judge and filing the bond with the city clerk. The board of education members elected yesterday will as- Takes An Army To Handle One There'll be an 1,000-man army of high school athletes running, jumping and throwing in the Ottawa Relays Friday and Saturday at Ottawa University.

Costs Less To Call Someone Far Away A new, nationwide "After Nine" calling plan will bring lower charges on many out-of-state long distance calls beginning tomorrow, Jack Morrisey, Ottawa manager for Southwestern Bell, said today. Interstate rates will be reduced on three-minute station-to-station calls made between 9 p.m. and 4:30 a.m. Lower rates will apply on calls of more than 220 miles. Kansas already has a similar plan in effect for intrastate calls LEON ROBERTSON made between 9 p.m. and 4:30 a.m. This "Family Plan" offers a 2-minute, paid station-to-station call to any telephone in Kansas for a maximum of 40 cents plus tax. Family Plan calls within Kansas of 80 to 246 miles cost only 33 cents, and those under 80 miles cost 33 cents or less. The new "After Nine" charges on interstate calls will be five to 75 cents below present night and Sunday rates for the first three minutes. Reductions will be greater as the calling distance increases. For example, rates will be reduced 15 cents on a 300-mile call, 30 cents for 500, 45 cents for 1,000 and 75 cents on a 2,500-mile call. The new interstate rate plan also provides for 5-to-10-cent increases on out-of-state person-to- present calls up to 800 miles. Here are typical examples of the new rates, compared with present ones, for station-to-station interstate calls from Ottawa after 9 p.m.: To San Francisco Seattle ..

Prescriptions—Raney, CH 2-3092 Adv Lunik Speeding Toward Moon MOSCOW (AP) - The Soviets said today Lunik 4 hurtled 134,215 miles in the first 24 hours of its flight toward the moon and is speeding along on course A broadcast communique carried this progress report on the lunar research vehicle reported fired from an orbiting multistage rocket Tuesday on its 238,850-mile journey. With speed slackening somewhat after the initial boost, it was expected to take 3V£ days from takeoff time to reach the area of the moon. Exactly what it is supposed to do remains a Soviet secret. US Satellite Circling Earth CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) -The Explorer 17 satellite zipped around the globe today and within two days its sensitive instruments were expected to collect more information about the earth's atmosphere than all the knowledge gaind through the centuries. The 410-pound ball of instruments vaulted skyward Tuesday night atop a three-stage Delta rocket and settled into an egg- shaped orbit ranging from 150 to 570 miles high. The launching success was the 16th straight for the reliable Delta. Rules Whipping Not Inhuman DOVER, Del. (AP)-The Delaware Supreme Court today ruled that public whipping does not violate the cruel and inhuman punishment provisions of either the state or fedral constitutions. The ruling came on an appeal of Franklin W. Cannon Jr., 20, from a sentence of 20 lashes as a probation violator. Delaware is the only state to allow whipping of criminals. No such sentence, however, has been carried out in the state for years. Fight It Out In Argentina BUENOS AIRES (AP)-Loyal. ist forces launched an air and ground attack on a rebel air base today and claimed they had brought about its surrender. But a rebel fleet of warships and an aircraft carrier were reported nearing Buenos Aires, carrying a threat of an attack on this capital. The Loyalist claim that the Punta Indio air base had surrendered could not be confirmed. The rebel radio at Bahia Blanca, about 350 miles southwest of Buenos Aires, said the navy forces never would surrender. "We will fight to the death," the broadcast said. Believes Russia Would Fight NEW YORK (AP)-An admin- istralion space official predicted today that the Soviet Union would use its throwing space competence for military purposes if it considered it expedient — and the United States must be ready. Dr. Edward C. Welsh, executive secretary of the National Aeronautics and Space Council, also declared America's effort to land man on the moon by 1970 would be a key aid developing military defensive capabilities in space. Fears Chinese Planning Attack WASHINGTON (AP) - U.S. intelligence experts are concerned about extensive road building by Red China along its southern border. Some think it could be a prelude to thrusts into Thailand, Burma, or elsewhere in the Southeast Asia rice bowl. They recall that the Communist Chinese undertook considerable road construction and establishment of advance supply dumps before attacking India's northern frontier last fall. Red China was described as working feverishly to develop a series of military bases and a vast network of roads and railways radiating from her Yunnan Province. •|lpW|fjf' !
