Also winning final passage was a bill to grant a salary increase of $200 a year to most county officials in the state. . Both measures now go to Gov. John Anderson. Legislative action was completed on the two measure when the House ments. accepted Senate amend- The coroner bill sets up an appointive district coroner for each judicial district in the state, replacing the elective office in each county. ' The bill provides for appointment of qualified physicians as district coroners by the district judges. The general salary bill would apply to all but the state's largest counties. Unification Bill Passed TOPEKA (AP)-The school unification bill passed the Senate 259 today. It contains a number of Senate amendments and probably will go to a conference committee unless the House agrees to the amendments. Sen. Alvin Bauman, D-Sabetha, explained his no vote by saying the bill "would ruin small communities. It's full of directives giving too much authority to the state superintendent." The bill would set up a procedure for establishing a uniform system of schools offering grades one through 12. It replaces a 1961 law struck down by the state Supreme Court as an improper delegation of legislative authority. King On Shopping Spree With Wave Of Hand He Buys Five Caddies NEW YORK (AP)-King Hassan H of Morocco showed New Yorkers what it means to go first class this week. His shopping trips seemed like something out of "The Arabian Nights." The king, who ends a 10-day visit to this country today, included a little shopping for the royal household on his agenda. So, with one sweep of his arm, he bought more cars than the average American will purchase during a lifetime. With another wave of his hand, he ordered more blankets, towels, sheets, mats, robes, pillow cases and bedspreads than any housewife could ever dream of buying. The whole thing took less than three hours. On Monday night, he made his additions to the royal livery. He headed for an automobile showroom where 18 cars in the General Motors line were on display, especially for him. They ran the gamut from the most luxurious Cadillac to the simplest compact, The king and his party looked at all of them within a half hour. He placed an order for at least five Cadillacs, and an unspecified number of other cars, through the firm's overseas division "There's never been anything like it," commented George B. Brown, a representative of the agency. The king and his party headed for a textile house Thursday, where the night before the man- agement had prepared for the royal shopping trip by having butlers, maids, a bartender, a supply of orange juice and Turkish coffee standing by. The exact orders still haven't been tallied. Estimates range as high as 5,000 of the bedroom- bathroom items, including 150 blankets that will be packed to leave with the royal party This trip lasted about an hour and 45 minutes. But the problems didn't end there. The king wanted the royal crest coat of arms and monograms put en every item, some of which had to be finished for his departure. "It's all been very hectic." one of the company's spokesman said, quite out of breath. Up To $50,000 Without Election Special Bill Would Let County Buy Old Building The Franklin County commissioners and County Clerk Bruce Spears have been notified that a bill has been passed in the Kansas Legislature authorizing the purchase of the old post office building, at $50,000, without election. pnce up to county wide Spears said he received a phone call from the General Service Administration, Kansas City, this morning, informing him that the building had been appraised and a letter asking approval of the appraised value and permis- sion to deal with the county officials had been sent to GSA headquarters in Washington, D. C. Spears said the GSA representative he talked with this morning told him the appraised value of the building was confidential, but that he and the commissioners would be notified soon. The bill approving the purchase of the building is reportedly on Gov. John Anderson's desk and should be signed, or vetoed soon. Indians Turn Down Charity It's Sporting To Kill Rabbits With A Club LAKEWOQD, Calif. (AP)-Winnie Anders apparently thought she was dispensing charity in the best .Biblical fashion: Casting bread upon the waters. But the objects of her good works asked that Mrs. Anders send her donations elsewhere. And now diplomatic relations have been broken off between Mrs. Anders and the 1,800 tribesmen of the Santo Domingo Pueblo, north of Albuquerque, N.M "Why, those ungrateful Indians!" snorted Mrs. Anders, chieftain of a'self-appointed Lakewood women's group known as the Pueblo Indian Food Lift. It seems the proud Santo Domingo Indians were embarrassed by shipments of food, clothing, sewing machines and rifle bullets. The women had sent them after hearing of the tribe's poverty. Mi-s. Anders got the idea for shipments after meeting a Santo Domingo tribesman, who was serving •with the Navy reserve in this Southern California city. The reservist, Santiago Leo Coriz, invited Mrs. Anders and her husband George, 49, to visit his pueblo in New Mexico. They did. When they returned, Mrs. Anders, tears in her eyes, told women friends and newsmen: "If you could each look into the hollow eyes of these children and view their little bodies, and see the despair in the eyes of the older people, I am sure you could not turn your backs, oh this condition." Thus,stirred, Lakewood's womenfolk launched a massive mercy lift, and enlisted the Navy to fly supplies to New Mexico. Meanwhile, newspaper stories of the Indians' plight filtered back to New Mexico, and prompted this letter from. Diego Rosetta, governor of the pueblo: "It has come as quite a shock to us to know that we are starving, have no clothing, have no land, live in an area comprising 10 square blocks." While he appreciated their gesture, Rosetta added, he suggested they send "California future shipments to Indians who are in distress." He noted that "Indian people, as a rule, are poor people, but there is a difference between being poor and being in want and distress." If this is so, the puzzled Mrs. Anders inquired, why were Indians forced to kill rabbits with clubs? Simple, replied a pueblo spokesman, Indians consider clubs more sporting then rifles. The county has been conferring with the GSA and the Department of Health Education and Welfare, attempting to learn whether the old post office could be obtained without cost for welfare and agricultural extension offices, or at a cost that would prohibit buying it. The bill passed by the legislature was introduced by Sen. William Bowers especially for Franklin County, because the statute regarding buildings for county use does not cover the purchase of an existing structure. The Franklin County officials said the old post office, located at 2nd-Hickory, would be used for the welfare offices and extension offices and possibly the county health department, if Gov. Anderson approves the special, bill and if the GSA's appraised value is not prohibitive. The $50,000, if approved, could be used both for buying the building and remodeling. The GSA offered the building to either the county, the City of Ottawa and the Ottawa Board of Education several months ago as work was progressing on the new post office building located at 4th - Hickory. Postal operations are expected to be moved to the new post office in midsummer. The city turned down the building due to a lack of funds. The board of education decided against the building though the board could have obtained it without cost, because it did not seem suitable for a school building and was not easily enough accessible to other schools in the city to be used for an administration building. The building would be put up for bid to private individuals or businesses if the county does not take it. , Bulletin WASHINGTON (AP) - By a three-vote margin, the House Appropriations Committee today rejected President Kennedy's request for $500 million to speed up the public works program. The 22-19 vote upset a recommendation by a subcommittee that the works program, authorized by the last Congress to the tune of $900 million, be given $450 million more.

John Macdonald, who joined the Salina Journal last fall after one of several summer jobs at The Herald, placed first with a story about a woman who couldn't read a postcard she received because she had left her spectacles somewhere else. The card was a reminder to get her eyes checked. Lois Smith, The Herald's woman's page editor, placed third with her story on an egg being found in a coat pocket, several months after the coat had been worn. The contest is conducted monthly. 'Accidental' War GENEVA (AP) — The Soviet Union announced today it is ready to accept a direct telecommunications link between Washington and the Kremlin to prevent an accidental outbreak of world war. Soviet Ambassador Semyon K. Tsarapkin made the announcement in a session of the 17-nation disarmament conference. The direct link was originally proposed by the United States as a priority measure to relieve world tension and prevent accidental war. The so-called "red line" between Washington and the Kremlin was a feature of the original American proposals for a general disarmament treaty. The United States last year suggested it should be considered separately from the disarmament treaty, bogging down an East- West stalemate. Tsarapkin said each side should guarantee that material passed over the Red line would be forwarded at once to the r sponsible government organs. This presumably meant that the Red line could be made to establish direct contact, in case of emergency, between President Kennedy and Soviet Premier Khrushchev. Earlier. Tsarapkin passed along an East German proposal for a friendship pact between East and West Germany as an initial step to a nonaggression treaty between the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the Communist Warsaw treaty bloc. This is an old gambit, rejected in the past by West Germany.
