YMBC Seeks Statewide Support for Village' The Young Men's Business' club of Lake Charles will spearhead a drive to unite the YMBC state association in a common state-wide project of supporting a greater Boys Village program. Vernon Keating, principal of Iowa High School and president of Boys Village, spoke to the civic club about the program and the needs of Boys Village Monday night. For the past two years, the Lake Charles boys' home has served the needs of the entire slate, Keating said. Fifty boys during the past two months have been denied entrance into the home for lack of facilities and funds. When asked what happens to these boys Keating replied, "God only knows." Established since 1947, Boys Village orginally served a five parish area in Southwest Louisiana. Today, 50 per cent of the boys are from other areas of the state. Other parishes, how- Thief Gets Wish In Federal Court An admitted outo thief, who said he wanted to return to the ^deraj. ptjison at Atlanta, Ga., for "treatment of a heart condition, got his wish in U.S. District Court here Monday. Claude Walter Carpenter, held for transporting a stolen car for Birmingham, Ala., to Lake Solons Again Ponder Police Jury Systems BATON ROUGE (AP)-The old, old state argument against parish police juries using the ward system oif doing business, compared with the unit system, is back in the legislature. For several years, state audits have urged police juries to act as a single unit, instead of letting things be handled by individual jurors for each ward. The House Judiciary B Com-1 mittee Monday approved a bill! that would repeal the state requirement making parishes adopt the unit system. The' measure was sent to the House floor. W. K. Brown of Grant Parish, who sponsored the bill, said the present rule, coming into effect this month, would cut off state funds for parish roads unless they adopted the unit system. Phillip Jones, state highway department, said the state would put on pressure on parishes to adopt the unit system, but additional state funds would be used as an inducement to parishes with the unit system. Jones said a parish "must have the unit system to get the best use of equipment and money." Several rural police jurors argued against the unit system, saying the ward system worked best for their parishes. Charles, told Judge Edwin F. Hunter he would like to return to Atlanta where, "They've got real good facilities for treating my trouble." Judge Hunter sentenced Carpenter to five years, with probation possible at any time the parole board sees fit to grant it. A young Mexican youth, Jesus Medrano-Martinez, was ordered returned to his native country after pleading guilty to fraud and misuse of entry documents, deferred in two ever, do not contribute funds to maintain the institution. Keating said half of their finances comes from the Calca- sleu United Appeals effort. The rest of the money comes from the Village's dollar-a-month club members, a memorial fund and the agricultural activities of the boys. The 37 boy-member home cultivates 40 acres of rice. According to Keating, the statistics of the boys home show that not one of the boys who has completed his high school education from Boys Village has ever been in late trouble with the law. He said that they make fine citizens with families and hold good positions in society. With $213 contributed by the public which was matched by the YMBC, the boys left Monday morning on a trip to visit Six Flags in Texas. The YMBC program Monday also included a Dairy Month program.

(AP) FBI agents today held a man wanted in Baton Rouge and Opelousas, La., for allegedly clipping two Baton Rouge contractors in a confidence game. Carlon Lee Hammond is accused of taking $35,000 from Morris V. Lucia and Joe Fasulo, building contractors. Hammond convinced the men he could arrange for them to purchase $50,000 for $35,000. The contractors paid in small bills. Hammond is being held here on $5,000 bond. The preliminary hearing was held Saturday after the arrest. The final hearing is due when a copy of the complaint warrant from Baton Rouge arrives here. Baton Rouge authorities said Hammond arranged a meeting with Fasulo and Lucia at an Opelousas hotel. The $50,000 was to come from an ''old man in trouble with the internal revenue service." Investigators said Hammond took Tasulo with him to meet "the old man" while Lucia waited in the hotel. Then, when they stopped the car in a residential section, police said, Hammond grabbed the contractors' money, ran to a man in a waiting car and fled. Sellers Attends Public Showing HOLLYWOOD (AP> - Actor Peter Sellers made his firs! public appearance since his heart attack April 6. appearing briefly Monday night at a film preview to thank the medical team that saved his life.

Robert John Hertlein, now a resident of Lake Charles, pleaded guilty to mail fraud in a scheme to obtain money from a Louisville, Ky. bank. The defendant, who admitted a record of various offenses dating back to 1949, told the court that he was undergoing psychiatric treatment and Judge Hunter ordered action suspended until he could study results of the treatment. Crowell Willis of Rapides Parish, charged with probation violation, will face trial next week at Alexandria, in either state or federal court, after outlining a complicated set of circum stances. Willis was found guilty of theft of government property and given a six-months suspended sentence in 1961 and placed on probation in federal court. Last fall, a state court in Alexandria found him guilty of desertion and non-support of his children, constituting a violation of his federal probation. Willis then went to Texas and ignored orders of local federal probation officers to report here. Willis told Judge Hunter, however, that he was innocent of the charges of child neglect but had pleaded guilty "because I didn't have any proof." ! Hunter, after lengthy confer, ences with U.S. Attorney Ed | ward L. Shaheen, said that Willis should have a new hearing i on the charges to determine ! whether or not an actual violation of probation had occurred. Hunter said he would hear the case himself, unless Rapides Parish officials wish to claim jurisdiction. THE COLEMAN AGENCY Isn't it time you considered "moving up" to a nicer home? According to all experts, it is! Just a few days ago, a Wall Street Journal reporter cojn- mented on the growing desire of Americans to "trade up" in many personal purchases. The f r i 1 1 - 1 e s s, stripped -down auto or appliance is no longer in fashion. Manufacturers of cam- pact cars now push "fancy up- h o 1 stery, bucket seats and big engines" rather than economy.
