Thirty-five miles northwest of Hanoi, it is one of 18 posts in the Son Tay sector, , which French forces must quit before Aug. 11. The men, their guns and what ammunition and rations they had left were being loaded aboard a French landing craft when the woman stepped off a footpath nearby and onto a Vietminh mine. She was put aboard the landing boat, because the river is smoother than the twisting, chopped-up roads, and the plank and canvas covering of the boat gave some protection from the 115-degree sun. But it may be her last trip. Here in Son Tay a long truce convoy is . drawn to the. side of the ma'in road leading to Hanoi. It has just come in with men, weapons and ammunition from an outpost eight miles to the southwest. PHOENIX, Ariz, (/?;—William E.

The jurors recommended continued investigation of the case by "city, state or federal"' authorities even though their verdict marked the official end of the case. Thorne, 20-year-old heir to a mail order fortune of nearly two million dollars — died June 19 in his $75-a-month one-room flat. Cause of the death could not be determined immediately. The coroner's jury Thursday accepted a report from four eminent pathologists who exhumed the young heir's body that his death was caused by bronchial pneumonia. oero uj *u-f v^t^«^»"< ' i^_,, returns of eacU election therefor snail be sealed up separately and trans- extraordinary or special session o: the General Assemblv. thev shall re' ' sea sea. the "returning officers not later tnan " November oi tne of government by j ceive in addition to salary herein pro- Tided 1,520.00 _ the sum of Twenty Dollars- pei day for each day they Ike to Speak to Council WASHINTON (/P)—President Eisenhower has accepted an invitation to address a meeting of the World Council of Churches at Northwestern University in Evanston, 111., Aug 19.
