Egypt to Oust Aged Patriarch CAIRO, Egypt L#—The Egyptian government is going to oust 85- year-old Patriarch Anba Youssab IT, controversial head, of the Coptic Church in Egypt and Ethiopia, whose suspension was ordered by his own hierarchy. , The church is an ancient Christian body similar to the Greek Orthodox Church. The Coptic archbishops and Congregational Council voted to suspend the old man from his lifetime post but he refused to quit. The Egyptian Cabinet decided last night to back the lesser church leaders. The patriarch has been under fire for more than a year from Coptic leaders who dislike his administration of church affairs. STREAM'S ROUTE The Gulf Stream travels a route of more than 6000 miles, from the Gulf of Mexico to the cool, green j waters of the Arctic north of Norway. ' Aged Volunteer CHICAGO {#>—Dr. James Robert Bridges of Kahoka, Mo., 92, a captain in the 'Army Medical Corps in World War I, has applied for a reserve commission, 5th Army Headquarters announced. Bridges offered to serve "for the rest of my life," or as long as the Army desires. Since World War II he has been examining draftees in his home county. Skunk Sale LOS ANGELES ifi — There's one dress shop here that may be having a different sort of fire sale soon. A skunk got loose in the shop and fired several times before he was trapped by three policemen. They clapped a box over him, wrapped him up tightly in protective plastic, and later had the final shot. The gnawing teeth of beavers keep growing" year after year, and this persistent growth takes care of the wear on the teeth. ,WADE FURNITURE CO.

The postponement of Lonardl's formal installation as president did not delay the work of setting up the new government. Brig. Gen. Leon Bengoa, one of the leaders in the uprising, was named federal police chief and reports said he already had assumed his new duties. Bengoa was arrested after the unsuccessful June 16 rebellion and released a few days ago when the anti-Peron forces anally emerged as winners. The political turnover also borught the release of other Peron foes from Jail. Two federal judges ordered the release of all political prisoners they were holding for trial. The number of these was not announced. Press reports .said two close associates of Peron were arrested. They were identified as retired Maj. Carlos V. Aloe, governor of Buenos Aires province until this week, and Miguel Gamboa, former federal police chief. The former governor of Cordoba province, Raul Luccini, also was reported in custody. Lonardi is a veteran army man and a long-time Peron foe. He retired from the army in 1951 after strongly protesting what military men termed the "petticoat rule" .of Peron's late wife Eva. Persons close to Lonardi said his haired of Peron dated back to the mid-1950s. He was mentioned in 1952 as a member of a group rounded up in connection with an alleged plot against the dictator. Not Indicated , * What role the members of the outgoing junta might play in the new government was not indicated. Gen. Jose Domingo Molina, junta dead, signed proclamations as "commander in chief of the army," but it was not immediately learned if he was retaining that post under the provisional government. Hector Hugo di Pletro, secretary general of the six-million-member General Confederation of Labor, appealed to the workers to "keep calm and continue working for the good of the country." The GOT was a major force in Peron's regime. Apparently still wary of a general strike attempt to return Peron to power, the state radio announced a holiday today to keep the workers from assembling at their plaints. Scattered street fights erupted in Buenos Aires last night between foes of the former President and his supporters. Police b»ke up the groups before the Violence spread, however. In Washington, the State Department said it is "naturally considering the question" of recognition of the new regime, it said action would be taken as soon as developments warrant.
