(NEA) WRONG MAN IS RELEASED FROM JAIL By Asieeiatt4 ?r«ss EASTON, Pa. — A switch in clothes, a switch in prison cells and a switch in jail guards resulted in the wrong man getting his freedom from Northampton County prison here. Here's the story as Warden E. C. Gackenback tells it: State police arrested Lewis Rosico, 19, of Detroit, his wife, Irene, 18, and a friend, Robert Van Valen, 21, Scranton, Pa., in nearby Portland Tuesday on charges of stealing $30 from a gas station cash drawer while the attendant filled their car with gasoline. ~ After a hearing. Justice of the Peace Clifford Sebring' said he'd free the trio, if they reimbursed the gas station and paid court costs. However, he added that Rosico would have to remain in custody because he was reported AWOL from the Lackland (Tex.) Air Force Base. I The $30 and costsi were paid Wednesday night and one man and Mrs. Rosico were released. The warden disclosed that the Iwo men had changed clothes and switched cells shortly after they were placed in the jail Wednesday afternoon. Guards who came on in the evening, did not know which was Van Valen and released Rosico who wore Van Valen's clothing. Vail Valen is being held without bail on a charge of aiding and abetting a prison break. —• r\ you don't give milk, so go to ^ work." : SPECIAL SATURDAY ONLY REG. $129.95 (5 Room Size) HORGE OIL HEATER CONSUMf RS APPLIANCE . 118 N. 9th— T«l. 222 WI'VE OOT IT! ii FAIMPOWEI ^ aid ITIUTT SPECIAL For Thr$ Week FRESH BANANA CAKE DAINTY MAID PASTRY SHOP By Aiseciated Presi WASHINGTON — A new "dollar cVisis" conference between Britain and the United States appears to be shaping up for early next spring. Prime Minister Churchill himself may fiy to the United States then to talk with the next American Presdient about Britain's ideas for new moves to strengthen the Western world's finances. The backstage study now going on in American goveriment agt<n- cies seems to stem from a growing belief that America's allies may have to halt their rearmament drive unless new financial props are found for their shaky economies. Both Britain and France announced Thui-sday they are going further in the red in their foreign trade. Britain and France already have cut back their rearmament schedules and American defense experts fear any fui-thcr cuts may seriously hurt the West's master plan for defense against Communism. What new steps can be adopted to bolster Western finances is not yet certain. Congress appropriated a total of $6,447,730,750 for mili- tary-ficonomic and technical aid to nearly 40 countries during Liie 12-month period ending next July Altogether, nearly 26 billion dollars has been provided by the United States to friendly countries during the past four years. The_ present thinking is that the foreign aid program must be continued for several more years. Two Minor Fires In City Thursday Mt. Vernon firemen made two runs yesterday and last night.

POLIO STRIKES 8 CHILDREN IN ' FAMILY; 1 DIES By Assoeiatod Prass MORRILL, Neb. — Mr. and Mrs. Frank Rogers remained in virtual seclusion on their farm today, burdened with grief over the death of their eldest son and anxiety over their seven other children, all stricken with polio.

Private funeral services for Robert were to be held this afternoon. "Everyone is just wonderful" said the 41-year-old father as he told how neighbors and civic organizations had moved to share the financial burden upon the income of his 120-acre farm and his work as a part-time laborer. Few Outside Contacts Dr. E. E. Andei-son of Lyman, the family doctor, said he had not had time to analyze the case histories of the stricken family, but he pointed out that they lived in a sparsely settled area with few outside contacts and that the children had not yet started to school. The seven children in the hospital still did not know today that their brother was dead. They are in an isolation ward. A hospital i-eport last night said all seven children are improving. 11 of 14 Stricken At Mapleton, la.. 11 of the 14 children of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Tliiel have had polio this summer.
