(AP-A vicious fire raged uncontrolled through the cruise ship Viking Princess today driving the approximately 485 passengers and crew members from the Miami-based vessel. The Coast Guard reported 470 were rescued, 1 dead and 10 missing. The survivors including the ship's veteran Norwegian captain, chief officer and navigator were plucked from the gently rolling Atlantic Ocean by three merchant vessels. The $16-million Viking Prin-eess was reported blazing fiercely, a towering column of smoke marking its death throes in the Windward Passage between Cuba and Haiti. "All (survivors) are in good shape," a Coast Guard spokesman said. The German freighter Cap Nort picked up 376 survivors E. B. Davis dies at 85; rites Saturday Edward Baseomb Davis, 85, former resident of 407 Broad St., died at the Hattiesburg Convalescent Home at 11:25 p. m. Thursday after a long illness. He was a native of Clarke County but had lived in Hattiesburg for 80 y e a r s. He was a charter member of Broad Street Methodist Church, the Masonic Lodge, Odd Fellows and the Cenpenters Union. Services will be held at 2:30 p. m. Saturday at Quigley-Moore Chapel with Rev. James S. Conner officiating. Burial will be in Oaklawn Cemetery. Survivors are two sons, Edward P. D a v i s of Hattiesburg and Jeff T. Davis of Houston, Tex.: six grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and a number of nieces and nephews. Petitions seek vote on school Petitions for election of county board of education members by county-wide vote were introduced Thursday evening at a meeting of school patrons called by John Gamble, president of the Petal local board of trustees. Gamble said a large and enthusiastic crowd turned out for the meeting in the school auditorium. Those present were given a resume of events leading up to a petition for a Petal separate consolidated school district, pending before the Mississippi Education Finance Commission, and a local bill to set up the district introduced this week in the House of Representatives. Francis Zachary, attorney for the petitioners, explained the legal aspects of the action and Forrest County Supt. of Educa-1 and one body, the Liberian The Coast Guard.

Medicare for young, more S.S. benefits is LBJ plan JACKSON, Miss. (APi-Coun-ty Judge Charles T. Barber ruled today Mississippi has voided its 57-year-old prohibition law through discriminatory enforcement and liquor taxes. Barber handed down his rul ing in the celebrated Jackson Country Club case and it cleared assistant club manager . Charles Wood of a liquor pos-j session charge following the $10,000 raid Feb. 4. Barber, in a 35-page opinion, sa:d the positions taken by the state were irreconcilable to the average and even uneducated eye. "The state of Mississippi," he said, "desires to permit the operation of the liquor industry in the state and to derive the revenue from it and, at the same time, to have prohibition." The evidence in the Country Club case, he said, was uncontradicted. "It shows the state of Mississippi is actively and forcefully Draw plans for new crossing of Southern Mayor Grady said today city engineer Jimmy Estes is laying out plans lor a grade crossing on the Southern Railway tracks between Ashford St. and Timothy Lane. This will link the two streets and it is hoped will minimize traffic congestion at the old bottleneck at Scooba St. and East-side Ave., in front of Steelman's Grocery. At present there is no direct tie-in with Broadway Dr. or West Pine St. west of Sixth Ave., and the crossing, with approaches which connect Ashford St. and Timothy Lane will pro vide the tie-in. Plans also are underway to install traffic lights at the railroad crossings on Market, Main 'and Ronie Sts. and possibly Sixth Ave. These lights would be I (Continued on Page 7) fostering, promoting and encouraging liquor traffic within the state.

Corbett, ,46, of Louisiana State University mumbled incoherently today as he was treated for a bullet wound of the chest. "That's what you get for try-1 ing to help someone," he said. Two city policemen said they heard this from the lips of Corbett in the recovery room of Baton Rouge General Hospital. They were James Blanchard and Sam Jacobs. Corbett was found in his wrecked car Thursday night with the bullet wound. He was rushed to the hospital, where of-I ficers said they heard the clue indicating an assailant. 1 His condition was listed as "fairly good," after surgery and 1 four blood transfusions. The bullet was removed from the middle portion of his back to j the left of the spine. It had entered his left shoulder. Detective Capt. George Stirrat said no weapon was found, but he knew the caliber of the bullet taken from Corbett. This, along with Corbett's au-, tomobile, were being examined at the state police crime laboratory here. Stirrat said he did not know whether a ritle or a pistol was : used. j "It is possible, you know, for a man to be shot and not even .know it, when he is shot bv a pistol of that type," he said. The officer said Corbett had heen to two local restaurants attending local sports functions but there was about 25 minutes of his time which police could not account for after the last meeting.
