The legal notices now are published in The Ottawa Herald. The state law requires that a paper be designated as the official city publication once each year, and the date for expiration of the present time period is April 30. Tallman stated that if the city officials do not intend to pass this portion of city business around, he requests that the legal publication work be put up for bids. He stated that in the past year the circulation of his newspaper has been doubled. The request of Tallman has been taken under advisement, the city officials said. Two Start Long Hike; One Finishes Ron Showalter and David Nicewander struck out for Topeka about 10 Monday night from the north edge of Ottawa with good intentions of making the 56-mile trip on foot together. But Ron made the trip alone from the Baldwin Junction, 11 miles north of Ottawa, where David gave up and called for a car. Ron, 18, son of Mrs. Shirley Showalter, said David's father, Forrest Nicewander, 1128 N. Cherry, drove to the junction for his son who followed behind Ron until daylight when he came back to Ottawa. Ron continued his hike to the Topeka city limits where he arrived about 3 Tuesday afternoon and was picked up by his grandparents who were visiting there. His grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Howard Winner, 922 N. Mulberry, brought him home. WASHINGTON (AP) .- In the news from Washington: POST OFFICE: Postmaster General J. Edward Day has hinted parcel post service may be shut down July 1 and Saturday mail deliveries suspended. What may lead to an end of parcel post, Day told a Senate Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday, is "an impossible hodgepodge of legislation" that he said would require radical increases in the rates for handling packages. Day tied the chance for suspension of Saturday service —and Asks City To Open Street For Traffic Mrs. Dovie Brokman, 804 Spruce, at the meeting of the city commissioners last night, requested that Spruce Street be opened for use. It is difficult to reach her home, she said, because the street is not opened through the area south of where her home is located. Noel Douglas, who is developing an area for residential use in that part of Ottawa, has dedicated 30 feet for use in opening the street, the 30-foot strip being along the edge of his property. This would provide half the space needed for the street. The property needed for the other half of the street is owned by Floyd Jacobs. It w a s stated at the city hall that there has been no refusal on the part of Jacobs to dedicate the space needed for the street, but that the subject has not been brought up before and he has not been approached on the matter. Mrs. Brokman also complained that there is a problem in the area caused by outdoor toilets. She said there are cesspool types of toilets in use and that on some properties old cisterns are being used as cesspools. The city officials stated that this matter is to be corrected with installation of a sewer line to serve the area being, developed by Douglas. * * * Wants Grant Street Paved J. R. Clark, 1103 N. Oak, has requested that Grant Street, from Oak to Poplar, be paved. He presented a petition to the city commissioners at the meeting at city hall last night. The city officials will make inquiries in the area to determine the sentiment of property owners who would be assessed for the cost of the improvement, before proceeding. The one-block project would connect two paved streets. Under the intervening street law the project can be put in by the city regardless of any possible protest, but the city officials want to discuss the matter with property owners before proceeding. * * * Seek New Site For Antenna City and county officials conferred yesterday on the question of the antenna used by the police and sheriff's office radio. The antenna has been atop the North American Hotel for some television and radio reception in the area of the hotel. The city and county officials will try to find a more suitable place for the antenna. * * * Patrolmen Get Around Chief of Police Eugene Flaherty reported to city commis- iioners last night on the number of cases handled during the past month in the various categories of law violation. He also stated that the three Ottawa police patrol cars covered nearly 10,000 miles in patrol work. In other matters handled by the city commissioners an ordinance was passed to authorize issuance of bonds in the sum of $77,673.94 for street and sewer work that has already been completed. The bonds were sold on bids taken recently. Application was received from E & W Refrigeration Company for a permit to do electric wiring work in the city of Ottawa. An application also was received From Marvin Studios of St. Paul, Minn., for a permit to do photographic work in Ottawa. * * * Studying Bids On Fire Hose The city has received bids on aditional fire hose to be purchased in the near future and has taken the bids under advisement. City Fire Chief Harry Gilliland contacted fire hose manufacturers and dealers and received three bids, two of which were identical. The two bids were $1.24 per foot. The third bid was $1.35 per foot. The city purchases fire hose from time to time to replace worn hose, thus keeping the supply of hose and reserve hose up to safe figures for fighting fires.

Blames Legisatlon Hodgepodge May End Parcel Post, Saturday Mail Service possible denial of service to new homes and businesses—to the $92 million cut by the House from the $C-billion Post Office-Treasury appropriation bill. The Senate subcommittee chairman, A. Willis Robertson, didn't give Day cause for much cheer. Only about one-fourth of what the only about one-fourth of what the House cuts is eventually restored before Congress completes its work on the budget, the Virginia Democrat told the postmaster general. The parcel post situation stems from a provision requiring the department to set parcel post rates so that revenues for this service are within 4 per cent of costs. The department loses money on parcel post—it accounts for $127 million of the $231-million deficit expected in the year ahead— and if the provision is followed, Day said, over-all rates would have to go up at : least 25 per cent and the rates; on smaller packages about 40 per cent. Appealing for a Senate rider to cancel the 4-per-cent formula for a year, Day described the provision as self-defeating. His reasoning: The increase in rates will drive .away business, throwing parcel post deeper in the red. Kansas Girl, 14, And Her Companion Shot To Death DENVER (AP) - Carolyn Sue Ryan, 14, missing from her Salina, Kan., home since April 9, and Michael McQueeney, 22, Butler, Pa., ex-convict, were found shot to death Wednesday in a hotel room. Detectives said preliminary investigation indicated murder and suicide, but they held Thomas G. McQueeney, 23, brother of the dead man, for questioning. No charges have been filed. Thomas reported the slayings to officers about four hours after they occurred. Det. Sgt. Thomas Rowe said Michael McQueeney, on parole from the Chillicothe (Ohio) federal prison where he served time for auto theft, and the girl were registered in one room. Thomas KC Teachers Get Pay Hikes KANSAS CITY (AP) - Pay increases ranging from $200 to $230 a year for all teachers except those in the top scale were unanimously approved by the Kansas City Board of Education Wednesday. Teachers in the top scale will get no salary hikes this year bul will receive a $100 annual increase in 1964-85. The board also adopted a new salary schedule for operating em- ployes in the school system, with increases ranging from $5 to $20 a month. Teacher salaries range from $4,800 for those with a bachelor's degree and one year or less experience to $8,500 for those with a doctor's degree and 17 years experience. No Promise In Showers TOPEKA (AP)-Thunderstorms broke out in scattered parts of eastern Kansas today but no major break in the extended dry weather was predicted.

Believe Robbery Motive in Killing WICHITA (AP)-A service station attendant was found shot to death at his east side station early today. The victim was Wayne Platt, 58 Police Chief E. M. Pond said robbery appeared to be the motive. There was some money on the body and in the cash register but Pond said it wasn't enough for normal station operation. There was no sign of a struggle. Platt's body was found in the men's rest room. A used. 45-caliber cartridge was on the floor in the main room of the station. Boy Killed On Go-Cart LIEBENTHAL, Kan. (AP)Gary Moeder, 12-year-old Liebenthal boy riding a go-cart, was struck by an auto and killed near his home at the edge of Liebenthal on U. S. 183 late Wednesday. McQueeney occupied a room across the hall. They checked in Tuesday night. Thomas said he discovered the couple dead about 11 a. m. He left and drove to Bennett, 24 miles east of Denver, where he stopped at a cafe and told the operator: "Call the police — something terrible has happened." Det. Byron Haze said a .32 caliber automatic pistol was found under the body of Michael McQueeney. The girl's body clothed in slacks and a blouse, lay nearby. Each had been shot in the head. Rowe said Thomas told him his brother was worried about the possibility of federal charges for transporting the girl across state lines and for auto theft. FBI agents said Thomas rented a 1963 automobile in Butler April 5. It was found near the hotel. Kansas' officers reported two men in their 20s driving a car of that description had stolen $500 in a strong arm robbery at Junction City April 7. A girl friend of Carolyn Sue told Salina officers she went to a drive-in restaurant the night of April 9 with Carolyn and the two young men. She said the men talked of going to Denver, and Carolyn said: "Take me with you:" Salina officers said they had reports the girl and the Me- Queeneys visited Utah, Nevada, California, Arizona and New Mexico after they left Salina. The gun used in the killings was purchased from a Salina pawn shop April 10 by a man signing the name of Michael Walker. Salina police said the McQueeneys had registered at a Salina hotel as Mike and Gary Walker. At the Denver hotel, the girl and Mi chael McQueeney were registered as Mr. and Mrs. Walker. Carolyn Sue, a ninth grader, was described as a pretty girl— 5-foot-2, 120 pounds, blue eyes, shoulder length brown hair and appearing to be at least 16. Her father, Van Ryan, repairs mobile homes. The family lives in a Sa Una trailer court. Wrong Firm Mrs. Delbert Campbzell and Ted Clark were incorrectly identified as being associated with Hubbard Lumber Co. in a caption under a picture in Wednesday's Herald.
