WVE CENTS THE HOME EDITION SALINA JOURNAL 95th YEAR No. 347 SAUNA, KANSAS, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1966 18 Pages Salina Flag Unfurled Una 'Photo? " Salfaa City Is Buying Jarvis Lake, Land (See other commission stories on Pages 8 and H) Salina bought a .new., park, late Monday afternoon." The city commission voted without dissent to exercise an option held on the Jarvis Lake property east of Ohio and North of Iron avenue. The tract contains 100 acres and embraces about a 45-acre lake developed from an old sand pit. There also is a lavish home on the lake shore. The city has held an option to buy at $140,000 from the owner, Mrs, Mary Jarvis. The option was due to expire Dec. 31, The city will receive credit for $3250 invested in two 6 - month options. The commission also is confident of final approvz>J nf nn application filed with the Department of Housing and Urban Affairs for an "open spaces" grant of $75,000. The application is based upon acquisition of the Jarvis property. Its purchase will be financed through a $150,000 bond issue recently sold by the commission. The commission has a "letter of consent" from the regional office of HUD which, HUD has said, is tantamount to eventual approval of the grant. With wooded area, open meadows, a quiet water lake suitable for fishing, sailing and regulated swimming, (he park could become one of Salina's most valued recreation areas. The lakeside home, planners believe, can be put to many uses. Commissioner Bob Stark made the motion to exercise the option to buy. The vote was a firm affirmative. "Population growth will b c tremendous," said Commission- er Carl Rundquist. "In spile of what we may or may not do, Salina will share in this growth. "Park* are ah integral part of our city. I believe we- would be making a mistake not to acquire this property while it Is available." Following the meeting, commissioners agreed they had been impressed by the experiences of other cities learned during the Congress of Cities at Las Vegas, Nev. "I was of two minds on this," said Commissioner Charles Casebeer. "I felt it might be wiser to continue development of the parks we presently have. But everyone we talked with at Las Mild, Dry Weather Lingers (Detailed forecasts, Pg. 2) Tuesday, Dec. 13— TOPEKA (AP)-The weather bureau forecast clear, dry weather with somewhat warmer temperatures for Kansas today. High temperatures of 50 to 55 degrees were expected over the slate, with lows tonight in the 2Cs. ' Highs Monday ranged from 56 at Hill City to 42 at Pittsburg, with lows this morning from Ifi at Topeka and Hutchinson lo 27 at Dodge City. Forecasters said a high pressure area to Ihe west of Kansas would continue to bring mild, pleasant weather to the stale.' The forecast called for southwesterly winds of 5 to 15 miles an hour. No precipitation was in sight. Vagas urges us to acquire space while it is available. "There are cities which have had to buy land where cattle still graze in an effort to insure park space for the future.' "*"""" "And there are others that have been pinched and squeezed until no park land- is available! "Without exceptio^ these men told us to buy even if we are not able to develop it completely at this time." • Actually, the Jarvis property will need little development if the park is treated ns a wilderness area. One objection to the. purchase \v a s voiced. John Lisman, 1011 S. Santa Fe, told the commission he fears the lake will be a hazard for children. "Parks and water go together," replied Mayor Waddell, "There can be a safe swimming area on this lake and there can be supervision. We simply must educate our children to avoid dangers. Wo are surrounded by dangers all the time. But we appreciate your comments and concern." Salecrackers Hit Smolan Oi! Firm SMOLAN - Safecrackors took nearly $1800 in cash and checks from the Smolan Oil Co., Monday night. Deputy Sheriff Dick Hurley said entry was' gained through a back door. The door of the safe was "peeled", with approximately $,^0 in cash and $1275 in checks taken. The owner, Phillip Nelson, reported the loss early Tuesday morning. Sa/ma's Flag Flies High Now Like it's said on Madison Avenue, they ran it up the nag pole to see if anyone saluted. For the first time, Salina's official flag was hoisted aloft Monday afternoon on the city ha'l flagpole. The bright flag was attached to (he halyard immediately be_ lew the stars and stripes. A young bugler from St. John's military school played "To the Colors" as the nags were run up by two other cadets. There was one false start. The flag was improperly folded and the young cadet had it upside down on the first try. "This truly is a beautiful Hag," Mayor G. N. Wadr dell said, "and it means different things to flit crcnt people. To me, it is (he standard of a true American city. . .a place called home. . .the Crossroads of America." Waddell presented the first flag to its designer, Steve Haller, 927 E. Minneapolis, who, with his wife and two youngsters, attended the brief ceremony. The mayor then bought the first one available from the Salina Chamber of Commerce at $6.75 a copy. During the subsequent commission meeting, commissioners suggested the flag be displayed on the dias in the commission room. The flags are available at the Chamber of Commerce office.

(AP> _ The physician in charge of Jack Ruby's treatment said today Ruby's cancer has developed too far to be cured by surgery. Dr. Jacfc Barnett said the only hope for a cure will lie in chemotherapy, which is treatment by drugs. He ruled out radiological treatment because of the widespread aspect of the cancer. Barnett is associate professor of internal medicine at Southwestern Medical School, a few steps from Parkland Hospital where Ruby .was taken Friday from his jail cell. The physician also disclosed Ruby Now! Their Son m^ at a morning news conference that another tumor was found Monday in the p!eura-the lining of the chest. He said it was Ihe same sort of cancer found in a lymph node in Ruby's neck Saturday. Ruby, 55, is the non-drinking, non-smoking onetime night club operator who killed Le e Harvey Oswald, later identified by the Warren Commission as President Kennedy's assassin. "It is incurable by surgery," the doctor said. "Surgery might be used for benefit, but not for a cure." Barnett said surgery could not cure Ruby because the cancer has spread from the still unknown primary source Into the lymph system, which is somewhat like the blood vessel system and goes to all parts of the body. Barnett also said that tests on Ruby show that his lungs have been infiltrated fay "small nodules." He said the "nodules could be cancer or they could be something else.' He added that extensive tests are continuing. Barnett said drug therapy can be successful in suppressing the growth of a tumor and can alleviate pain.

Lindsborg Suffers Measles Outbreak? LINDSBORG — Lindsborg children are suffering from what appears to be an outbreak of red measles, although there's some doubt. Seventy children ar e out of school but the epidemic now seems to have reached its peak. The disease is probably measles but there are so many viruses it is difficult to say for sure, a physician explained. The illness causes a fever of 102 to 104 degrees, a cough, red eyes and rash. It lasts about seven days w'th the rash coming as late as three to four days after the fever. Younger sufferers are he- ing given gamma globulin on the assumption they have red measles. Most victims are between 3 and 17 although a few as young as 15 months have been affected. "This points to the slow action of the public to take advantage of the measles vaccine program offered by the county and local physicians,'* the doctor commented. Some people who have had red measles have contracted the current sickness. This is why th e physician hesfjtates to say the epidemic is red measles. We will know for sure if no persons vaccinated for measles get the disease, the physician said. Some of the cases have been severe. One girl became delirious when her fever broke. A boy had to be hospitalized because of severe bleeding from the nose. | At Last \ CHICAGO (AP) — Chester and Dora | Fronczak have adopted the baby boy they § think is their own.

LOS ANGELES (AP) —An American television producer says Italian actress Sophia Loren is expecting a child next May. David L. Wolper, president of Wolper Productions, said Monday night that Miss Loren, 32, has postponed the filming of a television special in Rome because of her condition. Miss Loren was married to movie producer Carlo Ponti last April in the Paria suburb of Sevres. She is currently residing in Rome. Robert Londerholm, Kansas attorney general, Tuesday proposed increasing criminal fines, with the additional revenue to be used to support a compulsory training program for law enforcement officers. Londerholm addressed t h e beard of governors of the Kansas Peace Officers' association at a one-day meeting at the highway patrol headquarters at Schilling AFB. "In Kansas and throughout th e nation, there is now an acute need to upgrade the quality of peace officer training," h c said.

Soviet Reds Slap at China Tuesday, Dec. 13— MOSCOW (AP) - The Soviet Communist party said today that the "great power, anti-Soviet policy of Mao Tsc-tung and his group has entered a new, dangerous phase." The party accused the Chinese leaders nf "objectively assisting imperialism" and promised to do everything possible to oppose (heir policies. few years. Highly skilled police are needed merely to cope with this increase. "But at the same lime, recent court decisions have made more complex the rules svhich peace officers are required to follow in arrest, search and interrogation of suspects. "If Kansas is to continue the high quality of law enforcement it has maintained in the past, we must redouble ou r efforts to guarantee a professional, highly trained force of peace officers," he declared. Young Fonda Denies Drug Accusations LOS ANGELES (AP) -Actor Peter Fcnda testified he never lived in a suburban Tarzana home where police say they discovered marijuana. Fcnda. 26, is on trial with three other men in Superior Court on charges of possessing marijuana. The prosecution said Fonda shared the house with the three men. His testimony was corroborated by his wife, Susan, and his father, actor Henry Fonda. All three testified Monday that Pe- (er has lived in Beverly Hills Ihe past 4',j years. The younger Fonda denied smoking marijuana, and he said he had no knowledge of marijuana allegedly found in the Tarzana home. Fonda said John B. Haeborlin HI. 24, was allowed to use Fonda's name for a telephone at the house because Haebcrlin didn't have a credit reference. Haeberlin, John R. Robischon. 22, and Stephen Allsberg, 22, ar e all being tried on the charge. "The proposal for a permanent training center and mandatory police training has my wholehearted support." He pointed to a California prlicy which levies a penalty assessment of $2 for every $20 of any criminal fine, except vehicle and fish and game code violations. He suggested that the Kansas legislature also consider such a statutory provision as a means of providing funds for a better peace officer training program. "It seems appropriate that law offenders should help to support belter law enforcement", he concluded. By Geoffrey Atkins GENEVA (AP) — International experts are examining a new theory lhat influenza epidemics which periodically sweep through the world may be caused by animals. The answer may lie in Communist China. Scientists are slill baffled over the origin of flu epidemics, such as the "Asian flu" outbreak of 1957 and the World War I epidemic which killed 20 million persons. A World Health Organization special committee comprising experts from nine nations, is studying clues which suggest that animals— particularly pigs —may be responsible. Dr. Martin Kaplan of the United States, chief of the organization's veterinary public health section, told a news conference lhat the vital clue may be found in Communist China. The origins of major flu epidemics during the past century have all been traced lo central Asia. It is known that the 1957 outbreak started in Yunnan Province in southwest China—a big pig-breeding area. But Communist China is barred from the United Nations, and experts have been unable lo get any information. However, scientists know lhat .outbreaks of influenza reappear like cJock- work every year among the world's pig populations. Laboratory tests have shown that the virus is similar lo the human flu virus. But there is still a ''missing link" positively connecting the two. The experts also are studying * theory that man and animals "swap" influenza. It is prssible that humans catch the disease from animals and then transmit it back to them, thus maintaining a permanent "vicious circle" resulting in regular world epidemics, * * * Dear Sal: Do you suppose the Red Guards arc enlisting the pigs, too, in the war against the capitalists?

It said pilots of the planes were taken prisoner. There was no confirmation of this from U.S. officials in Saigon. The broadcast monitored in Tokyo said the raids amounted to "a new act of escalation." The official East German news agency ADN said in a Hanoi dispatch released in East Berlin that American bombers attacked Hanoi's city center. The agency said the attack, over a heavily populated area on the Red River, killed numerous residents and "many houses wore destroyed." The ADN dispatch, from a special correspondent in Hanoi, said there were no details on the extent of the death toll and damages. | He Should Have | Stayed in School \ KANSAS CITY, Kas.
