NO CLUES FOUND Search for Missing Youths Is Continued PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (AP) —Mississippi's biggest manhunt searched today for any clue to the baffling disappearance of three civil rights workers. No hint of the fate of the trio has been uncovered by hundreds of men in a thorough manhunt through east-central Mississippi since the men vanished on the night of June 21. Art Richardson, public Information officer for the State Highway Patrol, said every lead wag being pursued until investigators were satisfied with the information obtained. Michael Schwerner, 24, and Andrew Goodman, 20, both of New York, and James Chaney, 22, a Meridian Negro, were last seen when they posted a $20 bond in Philadelphia after their arrest for speeding. Sheriff Lawrence Rainey of Neshoba County said Wednesday that Deputy Cecil Price had told hini that he had not actually followed the trio when they left the jail. Previously, Price had said he escorted the trio to the city limits. The sheriff quoted Price as saying that he saw the station wagon drive away, but instead of following it he answered a city police call to check a report on drag racing. The charred hulk of the station wagon was found June 23 about 12 miles from Philadelphia. The highway patrol said Wednesday that dental records and fingerprints of a hit-and- run victim found near Batesville did not match those of Schwerner or Goodman.

Com had told a grand jury his undeclared income was gambling winnings. Corn, 80 years old and a member of the high court for a quarter of a century, showed no emotion as he was sentenced in federal court to 18 months in prison and fined $11,250. The tall, slightly - stooped judge served on the Supreme Court from 1934 until 1959, when he became a supernumerary judge—one who assists the court part time. Corn had no comment on the sentence by Judge Roy W. Harper which followed a changing nf his plea from innocent to "no defense." Harper said if Corn is physically unable to serve the sentence, probation will be considered. Government doctors are to examine him and report to the court by July 29. Corn was indicted April 8 on a charge of evading $11,063.54 in federal income taxes from 1957 through 1959. B. Andrew Potter, U.S. attorney, said since Corn had paid all his back taxes, plus fraud penalties, "and has admitted having fraudulently understated his income," the government agreed with Corn's attorney in the change of plea. Potter said the bribe could be proven by the government. He said it was connected with a pending case in 1956 involving a corporation which was not identified, which needed a "favorable decision." Potter said a government witness was asked how much the decision was wo<:th and when Corn was told $150,000, the judge said he felt something could be worked out. PELHAM MILLS .IK Radio-TV President Pelham Mills Heads Radio, TV Corporation Wallace Willing To Make Trade 609yyxczzcqyyg 2 MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP)~ Gov. George Wallace says he would gladly withdraw his name as a presidential candidate and throw his support to either major party if one would write a platform advantageous to the South. Such a platform, he said, would have to contain "a stand for local government, the rights of the states, repeal of the civil rights bill, rights of the states to control their schools, strong national defense and a crackdown on communism." Wallace, a Democrat, told a news conference Wednesday if his unpledged elector plan is successful, he will use it to dicker with both parties in hopes of getting a platform acceptable to the South. Alabama's unpledged elector candidates have signed an oath that they will not cast their votes in the electoral college for a Republican. However, the State Supreme a student at Topless Bathing Suit Pictures Bring Charges ATHENS, Greece (AP)—The public prosecutor accused three Athens newspapers today of offending public decency by publishing pictures of women in topless bathing suits. No trial date was set. The newspapers were Messl- mvrini, Apogevmatini and Ath- inaiki. Other newspapers had avoided showing full front exposures of girls in abbreviated swim suits. DENNIS THE MENACE Pelham E. Mills Jr. of Lake Charles is president of the corporation which purchased KPLC-TV, channel 7, and KPLC radio for $2,200,000 from T. B. Lansford, founder of the stations. Approval of (lie transfer of the licenses of the two local stations was announced in Washington D. C, by the Federal Communications Commission after four months deliberations. It is a cash transaction. Mills, who has been general manager of the two stations for the past eight years, succeeding the Into David Wilson, will also continue in his capacity of operational executive. He has been employed by KPLC for the past 20 years. On February 1. this year, Lanford ;ind his two partners, L. M. Sepatigh Sr., and L. M. Se- paugli Jr., all of Shreveport, signed an agreement with the new owners. At that time Lanford, in a statement to the commission said, "The assignors had given no serious consideration to the possiblity of selling station KPLC-TV and KPLC radio until approached by a representative of the assignees with a most attractive all - cash offer." Sale price for the television station was listed at $2-million and the radio station at $200,000. The new corporation lists many stockholders, including 14 other major shareholders, including vStan Musial. former St. Louis Cardinal baseball player, who owns $60,750 in shares along with Biggies Steak House, Inc. Largest stockholder is Mary Ann Stein, with shares valued at $91.125. Mills told the American Press today that "We have a number of plans for improving our programming and service for the viewers of our audiences, both in radio and television." The stations are primary NBC affiliates and will continue their association with the network. They are a secondary affiliate witli ABC, he said. Court ruled that they are free agents and can vote for anyone they want to. Consequently, the oath which they signed wheji they ran in the party primary is not binding, and they could vote for the GOP candidate. j college, said The governor said he is confident that his unpledged elector campaign will keep both major parties from getting a majority of votes in the presidential election, thus giving him a tool to help control the platform. He said he plans to take his unpledged elector campaign into Georgia, Arkansas, "Wisconsin probably, Indiana, a lot of states." He has campaigns underway in Louisiana, Sississjppi and North and South Carolina. Michigan City, Ind., was held at Batesville in connection with the accident. The search which involved 400 sailors was centered in Newton County, immediately south of Neshoba County. An FBI agent said every road had been searched in Neshoba County. Dragging operations were suspended but a door-to-door search continued. In other developments: James Farmer, national director of the Congress of Racial Equality, said in Kansas City the organization would stage crash voter registration drives in Mississippi and would try to unseat the Mississippi delegation to the Democratic national convention in Atlantic City next month. The Rev. Roy Collum Jr., | pastor of the First Baptist [ Church, said in an interview in j Shreveport, La., that Philadel' phia residents resent news reports which represent them as vicious, savage and backward people. Robert Walker, 30-year-old white farmer, was charged at Holly S p r i n gs with having threatened Larry Rubin, a 21- year-old civil rights worker from Philadelphia, Pa. There were earlier reports that Rubin had been beaten but Walter Evans, a civil rights worker and ' 1 OONT CALL WKAO A4D HOM6Y.

Dynalectron's Payroll Set At $1,000,000 Dynalectron in nine short months has become an Industry with a $1,000,000 a year payroll at the former Chennault Air Force Base. That was brought out Wednesday when members of the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury fired questions from all sides at officials of the Lake Charles aerospace operations facility. Ernest Curry, manager of the fixed aircraft maintenance operation, told the jury that the "Lake Charles facility is demonstrative of an effective and successful joint venture by parish government and industry to improve local economy and stimulate industrial developm e n t through diversification." Today Dynalectron has a work force of 477 persons, of which 250 are area people, Curry said. The effect of the firm's operations is keenly felt through its $l-million a year, or $40,000 weekly, payroll. Subcontracts to local firms pour another $25,000 each 12 months into the local spending power. Material and equipment purchases in Lake Charles since January 1, and through the end of May, totaled another $439, 077, Curry pointed out. The utilities bill amounts to almost $1,000 per week and since operations began last October, office and building sup- j plies have reached $21,001). ! Gasoline consumption is bet- I ter than 1,000 gallons a day and i the firm must maintain the property they use in top condition, which along with their insurance will run to $100,000 for 12 months, Curry said.
