Fire Damages Home in South Lake Charles Two alert Lake Charles women turned in a fire alarm that probably saved a $35,000 South Lake Charles home from complete destruction Saturday afternoon. The A. J. McD o n a 1 d residence, 4308 Louisiana St., caught fire from an unknown origin while (lie family was away resulting in the complete destruction of an electrical kitchen and causing extensive smoke and water damage to other parts of the house. E. J. Welborn of DeRidder, deputy state fire marshal, estimated the loss at $15,000 to $18.- OOn. Extensive damage resulted in the kitchen area where the roof burned through and caved in over the kitchen stove area. Flooring, walls and furnishings in the house were damaged by smoke and water, Welborn said. Mrs. Goldie Langley, 1300 Cactus Drive, in Sunset Acres, and a friend, Mrs. Sherill De- Mcritt. were driving on Louisiana Street and noticed what ap- neared to he "dust" pouring from the McDonald residence. They drove to a nearby store and asked (he clerk to phone the fire department. The two ladies then rushed hack to the scene, about 600 feet away, and knocked on th e doors, trying to alert the occupants. No one answered. It developed they were not at home. They then asked a group of young hoys to push two cars from the' garage to safely. Two fire companies, Nns. 5 and fi, answerer! ihe alar m which was received al 1:25 p.m. Assistant Chief Carl Cascio was in charge of ihe units. WASHINGTON (AP) - A knockout blow at Pathet L a n antiaircraft gun positions was made earlier this week by U.S. jet war planes, according to reports current here Saturday. The strike was reported to have been flown Tuesday, following the downing of two U.S. Navy planes over the weekend by Communist guerrillas. There was no official acknowledgement of the accuracy of the reports. If the attack took place as depicted, there would have been two apparent purposes—to clear the way for resumption of photo reconnaissance flights which had been suspended after the !oss of the two carrier-based planes, and to demonstrate American determination in assisting in the defense of Communist menaced areas of Southeast Asia. The Communists have described the attack as directed at a Laotian village, with civilians killed and injured. Reports current here said that Air Force F100 jc! attack planes blasted the Communist antiair- craft air positions with tactical j size conventional bombs, rockets and machine guns. The U.S. Air Force has FIDO jets based at Clark Field in the Philippines and at Okinawa and j rotates small units of both air! craft into Thailand for training | purposes. ! However, the probability was that the planes making the strike Tuesday may have flown from the Philippines. Both Navy planes lost last weekend — an unarmed Crusader equipped for focal reconnaissance and an armed plane flying escort on another mission —were hit by antiaircraft fire. The normal range of the F100 ! is about 1,000 miles, but this can ! be extended by mid-air refueling from (anker planes. This would make possible the use of FIDO's based in the Philippines, providing not. only the necessary range but extra time over the target upon arrival in the area. Meanwhile, the United States I is keeping a wary watch for ; possible Red Chinese interference with U.S. jets operating over Laos.

(API- Federal court upheld Saturday the right of Negroes to stage antisegregation marches in St. Augustine, and said real law enforcement, would stop any violence.

Afterward King was released from jail on $!)OQ bond. He was arrested at a segregated restaurant Thursday. An aide said he was to receive an honorary degree at Yale Monday. State officials argued that night racial demonstrations created a danger to the peace. Two of them ended in violence when white toughs attacked Negro marchers.
