4 THE MOKNIXG CALL. AUfU. fa. Mania?. N.t. 11, IMf VFO Expert Says World Threatened An expert on Unidentified Flying Objects told an Allen-town gathering of the Pennsylvania - New Jersey Two-State UFO Study Group yesterday that UFO of today presents more of a threat to the whole world than is currently known. Addressing the group in the Holiday Inn West, Colman Von Keviczky, a Hungarian born American who has been engaged in UFO research for 14 years, said the existence of UFOs is clearly established. "They have been identified as something not from this death," he said, "and they have had the entire world under observation for the past century." Von Keviczky called for all nations to unite "in mutual research and scientific coopera tion. He said this was neces- ary to "investigate and solve this problem for the common cause and mutual advancement of our peaceful relationship in outer space." He has served with the United Nations Secretariat's Office of Public Information. In 1960 he presented a memoranda to the U.N. secretary general proposing that the Security Coun cil take up the matter of UFOs as a topic of urgent importance to the world. Boston Firm Buys Saucony Interests Special to Tht Morning CiH BOSTON A. R. Hyde & Sons Co. of Cambridge, Mass., has acquired the Saucony Shoe Manufacturing Co. and its subsidiary K.&B. Shoe Co. of Ma- cungie in a straight cash trans action amounting to approximately $2 million, Richard Hyde, president, announced.

"The identity of Saucony will be retained and the firm will be operated as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hyde. However, the K.&B. Shoe Co., a division of Saucony, will be merged with. Saucony.

The show in the greenhouses in Trexler Memorial Park opened Sunday, Nov. 3. Through yesterday, it had attracted 14,-310 visitors. Yesterday's crowd, reported Myron Boger, greenhouse superintendent, was more than 2,400 in spite of the snow- Contract Bridge By B. JAY BECKER FAMOUS HAND West dealer. North-South vulnerable. NORTH A.K KQ7 Q10 ( K109863 WEST EAST 2 4Q643 A104S VJ65 AJ982 K8754 AJ5S 7 SOUTH 4J109875 6 Tha bidding: Wet North East South :paM 1 Pas 1 Pan 8 Pass 8 . Fast 4 A ; Opening lead ace of diamonds. It is impossible to play without making at least an occasional error, and nowhere is this brought out more forcibly than in the book of approximately 300 hands from the annual world championship that is published each year by the American Contract Bridge League. (The latest book, a re port of the 33-nation Olympiad plaved m France in June has just been released.) Consider this hand played by Venezuela and France in 1967. When Venezuela had the North- South cards, the bidding went: as shown and West led the ace of diamonds. East signaled with the eight, but West cashed the ace of hearts before leading another diamond at trick three. Declarer ruffed, cashed the A-K of spades, came to his hand with a club, and led the jack of spades. East won with the queen and put dummy back on lead with a heart. South could not get out of dummy without letting East ruff a club, and as a result, he went down one. It is easy to see that South could have made the hand if, after cashing the A-K of spades, he had also cleared dummy's K-Q of hearts before leading a club to the ace. True, this would have subjected him to a heart ruff, but that was a lesser dan ger than a club ruff. At the second table, the French North - South pair also ot to four spades. West again led the ace of diamonds, but then continued with a diamond Declarer ruffed, cashed the A-K of spades, led a club to the ace, and exited with the jack of spades. East won with the queen and made the proper return of a heart to West's ace. But West, who could now have beaten the contract by re turning a neart or a club, un accountably led back a diamond and South made four spades to bring the French team a gain of 720 points. fall, slush and chilly weather. A majority of the viewers ar rived in the early afternoon, ap parently on their way home from church. Councilman George B. Rein- ert, commissioner of parks, said he was delighted with this year's turnout. Reinert added that he is aware that the largest attend ance was in excess of 20,000, "but it should be remembered that at that time the show operated over a two-week pe riod. This year's attendance will cover an eight-day period, and I am certainly pleased." The 14-day stints were dis continued. Parks Supt. Joseph J. Gackenbach said that, to ward the end of these long stands, "the flowers were be ginning to look pretty sad, and we leit we were aoing more harm than good for the city. We believe the length of this year's show was good, and hope to continue with similarly shorter periods." Pair Named To Settle Steel Rows Two arbitrators have been named to join a high-level union - company team studying incentive - pay plans for steel workers. The study of incentive plans existing in 11 major steel com panies was authorized in the July contract settlement be tween the steel industry and the steelworkers. Sylvester Garrett, chairman of the board of conciliation and arbitration for the United Steel- workers of America and United States Steel Corp., and Ralph T. Seward, impartial umpire for Bethlehem Steel Corp. and the United Steelworkers, were named to the study team's arbitration panel. A third panel member is to be selected soon. The panel members will resolve disputes arising during the six-man team's examination of incentive plans. I. W. Abel, president of the United Steelworkers, and R. Heath Larry, chairman of the Steel Companies' Coordinating Committee, announced the ap pointment of the arbitrators. The companies' coordinating committee represents Allegheny Ludlum Steel Corp., Armco Steel Corp., Bethlehem Steel Corp., CF&I Steel Corp, Inland Steel Co., Jones & Laughlin Steel Corp., National Steel Corp., Pittsburgh Steel Co., Republic Steel Corp., U.S. Steel Corp.. and Youngstown Sheet & Tube Co. Biggs Retiring Farmers to Elect New Lobby Chief The Pennsylvania Farmers' Association will elect a new president at its 18th annual meeting today through Wednes day at the George Washington Motor Lodge. Gerald A. Biggs, current pres ident of the farm lobbying organization, has announced that he will not seek re-election. He has been head of the 10,000 plus association since 1953. The new president will be se lected on Wednesday. Biggs, who took over the reins of the Pennsylvania Farmers' Association three years after it was organized said, "The primary reasons for my retirement were established several years ago sibilities of the PFA president, it was my intention to step down when membership sur passed 10.000 and sufficient young leadership was active in the organization to give the organization a bright future." Biggs, of McConnellsburg, Fulton County, was presented a Pennsylvania Master Farmer Award in 1957. Today's luncheon session will include a talk by John Noble. Noble will relate his experienc es behind barbed wire in a So viet labor camp in Siberia. The convention opened yesterday with a staff briefing session and a vesper service.
