And it seems that every fur coat. By JULIUS GOLDEN - Davy Crockett, as any red-blooded American boys knows, had woman, as many a hard-working spouse knows, dreams of a RESUME SPEED THAi YOU HIGHWAY HIGH JINKS- This car speeds along almost as in response to the sign'. "Go Mao Go!" which a local artist- joker "installed" under a highway marker: "Resume Speed, Thank You." It is just outside the Franklin, Ohio, city limits. Speed is restricted in the city. EXCLUSIVE NBA PHOTO. Prtfessor Resign* MAGNOLIA, Ark. Dick Ratlilf, public relations director and aeeo- ciate professor of journalism at Southern State College here since 1646, has resigned to become public relations director for the Lake County chapter of the Indiana Society for Crippled Crildren at Oary, it was announced yesterday. Well, men, your day has come! When the little woman shouts for the fur and the young'un choruses tor a genuine Davy Crockett coonskin cap, draw yourself up proudly, give 'em ft stoney- eyed stare, and proclaim: 'Now look here! I haven't even paid the first installment on my mink blue jeans. My jeweled cowboy buckle is being readied and wliat good would that be without my six pairs of cowboy boots—a paltry $1,000 a pair." This year, at the New Mexico State Fair, ranchers will have a chance to see a $10,000 wardrobe for the cowboy (at least they're billed that way, even if rodeo queens do wear them). The mink jeans have been making the rounds of the country at the biggest state fairs. But Simon Goldman, who sets up the display in the dairy building, added the rest for a complete ensemble. '•I wanted something real unusual and outstanding." he said. "I'll probably have to hire a-couple of guards." The entire outfit is valued »t $10,000. Cost $3,500 The blue jeans, costing $3,500, are lined with silk. "They had to get 22 matched skins to make the blue jeans." Goldman sa;d. "You have to admit, they're luxurious II you like mink." The cowboy buckle, made entirely of gold and silver and richly studded with jewels, was fashioned by a silversmith. It costs $1.000. The boots come in sets of six pairs. $1,000 a pair, and a Stetson hat will run »100. Actually none of the pieces is for sale. But they're pretty to look at.

Mack, 67, phoned police said fine had heard about bombs being «ent through the mail and was worried about a. bulky package she had received. Officer Claude Shores went to her home and gingerly opened the package. It contained a book: "How to Become a Minister." BATON ROUGE, La. (*-Lou!sl- ana State University Scientists yesterday confirmed planters' complaints that the cotton boll weevil is getting too tough tor most Insecticides. Farmers have been stirring up a howl that they can't control the pest with chemicals. The LSU announcement by the Agricultural Experiment Station was the tirst In which scientists definitely attributed the trouble to increased resistance by the insect. A week ago Agriculture Commissioner Dave Pearce wrote U. S. Secretary of Agriculture Benson urging emergency research to develop new weapons against the boll weevil, warning southwide cotton economy was endangered. Dr. Dale Newsom, head of LSU Godfrey's Cose Goes to CAA CHICAGO (ffi) — The case ol whether Arthur Godfrey flew too close to an airliner in his private plane has been turned over to the Civil Aeronautics Administration's legal section at Kansas City. Harry Troxell. CAA investigator In Chicago, said the lile, including Godfrey's formal reply to charges, was forwarded to Kansas City Thursday "for whatever action" the legal section "finds necessary." Ozark Airlines complained to the CAA that Godfrey flew his DC3 plane within 100 feet of an Ozark passenger plane shortly after both took off from Chicago's Midway Airport Sept. 7. Godfrey denied to newsmen that he flew too close to the airliner. He said he merely "waggled" his wings in greeting and that there was no danger of a collision. entomology research, and others, said station research shows four state areas in which the boll weefil has developed "a relatively high degree of resistance to the chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticides" — such as poxaphene, endrln, benzene he.xachloride-ddt, dieldrln-ddt and heptachior-ddt. The four regions are the Waterproof-St. Joseph area and the section around Lake Providence, both in the Mississippi Delta of northeast Louisiana, the Ouachlta Valley south of Monroe and the upper Red River Valley, especially in Natchitoches Parish. Entomoliogists said it took 30 times as much insecticide to kill weevils in some areas as it did I in other areas. ' ! They drew a parallel between their findings and the development of resistance by the common housefly to DDT * few years ago. Scientists told of experiments with a phosphate insecticide, giving satisfactory control. But they warned more work must be done and said the phosphate in-! secticide appears highly toxic to j humans and animals. They saw "no possibility" for its immediate I commercial use. ] AMA Reverses View on Claims Of De-Cafftniateg 1 Coffee Makers CHICAGO W — The American Medical Assn. «»ys it now agrees with advertising claims that decaffeinated coffees have had »7 per cent or more of their original caffeine removed. The report of the AMA Chemical Laboratory, published in the AMA Journal, Thursday amounted to a reversal of an article in the July 23 Journal. In admitting its error, the laboratory said it had used different, testing methods in reaching conclusions that advertising stating al- most total removal of caffeine "must be reviewed with skepticism" in its earlier report. Te laboratory reports that regular Instant coffees and regular ground coffees contain almost equal caffeine content, and that the average cup of decaffeinated coffee — either regular or Instant — has only about one-fortieth the caffeine content of regular coffees. The original article stated regular instant coffees contained only half as much caffeine as regular ground coffee. It said further that Non-Agriculture Employment Up LITTLE ROOK (/PI— Nonfarm employment in August totaled 113,700, an increaae of about WO over the previous month and 1,600 higher thnn August 1954, the Employment Security Division says.
