High Court Says Wafer Firm Is Entitled to Continuance DENVER (AP) - Colorado's Supreme Court held Mon. the Twin Lakes Reservoir Canal Company has snown ___ diligence in developing its water claims from the Roaring Fork River and is entitled to continuance of a conditional cree to 121 cubic feet per second for the stream. The company takes from the westward-flowing Roaring Fork and its tributaries and diverts it into Colorado, primarily in the Sugar City-Ordway area of Crowley county. The water is diverted through the Independence Pass Transmountain Diversion System. The company's right to continue the conditional decree was challenged by the Colorado Riv- Conservation Dis- issued May 1, 1944, increasing diligence that the a b o s o l u t e decree from the " and stream from 504 cubic feet per orado and reducing the conditional decree to 121 cubic feet Twin per second. Only the conditional portion of the decree was in- de- volved in the case. The Colorado River district challenged during hearings in 1966 the Twin Lakes firm's right to the water and asserted it had not shown due in developing its claim. Judge Darrow ruled duej water June, southeast diligence should pose. hid been shown andlTwin high court agreed.

The ruling was unanimous. Centennial Health Fair Opens For Week at Community Building trict. The high court opinion, by Justice Paul V. Hodges upheld an earlier decision in Garfield County district court by Judge Clifford H. Darrow. The case stemmed from a decree issued Aug. 25, 1936, awarding the Twin Lakes company 357 cubic feet per second from the river absolutely and giving it an additional 258 cubic feet of storage. A supplemental decree was A week-long Centennial Health Fair opened at 1 p.m. Monday at the Greeley Community Building and the first of an expected crowd of several thousands mingled among the various booths.

GREEN Associate! Press Writer W A S H I N G T O N (AP) Wholesale prices did not decline in April as indicated in a preliminary report, but the final figures issued Mon. nevertheless cheered the administration: they failed to rise for the first time in lo months. Only farm and food prices declined in the wholesale index, however. Industrial raw materials rose three-tenths of one per cent, but this too was a hopeful indicator, because it' represented a 3.6 per cent annual rise instead of the 4 per cent rate of increase at the stiirt of uic ycnr. The index stood at 116.0 per cent of the 1957-59 average in April. That compared with 111.9 per cent a year earlier. This meant that it cost $116.60 ki March and April, on the average, to buy the same assortment of wholesale goods which would have cost $100 in 1957-59. For all commodities repre- icnted in the index, the price average was 4.2 per cent above a year ago, down from a 4.8 per cent rate of annual rise in January. An even better showing had been hoped for when the tentative index figures were released on April 29. They showed a decline of one-tenth of one per cent in the wholesale index, the first drop in 20 months. However, the final figires showed that farm products, despite a 2.4 per cent dip in the month, did not decline quite as far as had been estimated in the earlier report. The farm and food sector of the wholesale index is less valuable than the industrial commodities sector because it is more susceptible to wide fluctuations owing to market conditions and weather. The increase in industrial raw materials was broad; there were increases for almost all the commodities except rubber and plastic products, textiles and apparel, and transportation equipment. Increases were recorded for fuels, chemicals, metals, machinery, furniture and household durable goods, lumber anc leather.

An Ohio National Guard official in Columbus said Monday that there is no indication that any weapons but the Ml rifles carried by enlisted men were 'ired in the incident which killed four students and wounded nine others. The man aiming the pistol is in front of the guard units whicl did the firing. It could not be de- :ermined from the photograph whether the pistol also was r ired. The guardsman, of medium build, is holding the weapon n his left hand and is in a crouched position. Only National Guard officers carried pistols at Kent. The pis- :ols were .45 caliber. "No 45s were fired there to our knowledge," LI. Col. John Spain, public information officer in the guard's Columbus headquarters, said in a telephone interview. "But only the officers had those weapons." Two Associated Press reporters examining the shooting area the day after the incident found a heavy caliber slug in a parking lot near where one of the Kent students died. The slug appeared to be larger than the .30 caliber bullets fired by Ml rifles, but its exact size could not be determined because it was mangled. The slug was turned over to a guard officer who pocketed it without comment and without marking the spot at which it was found. The reporters also saw a hole in the lawn at the shooting scene which guardsmen and ballistics experts said appeared lo have been made by a bullet 10 traveling toward the position of ;n the guardsmen. It was understood that at least one other similar hole was found in the area later. The shooting area was cordoned off and newsmen were lot permitted to watch while the holes were probed. II could not )e determined what, if anything, was found in them. Guardsmen involved in the shooting have maintained that they heard at least, one shot fired before they began shoot ing. At first, guard officials sail they believed there had been a sniper firing at the men. Later, however, they said there was no evidence of sniping.
