ANDREW DELANEY Long Service Ends Bell City Mailman To Retire IN VIET NAM Four Servicemen Reported Killed BELL CITY - Andrew Dc- laney, better known as "Sonny," will retire from Route No. 1 of Bell City after having served his patrons for over 33 years. His retirement is set for July 30. I He received his appointment' July 14, 1931, at which time the mail route was tri-weekly and 42 miles in length. On Aug. 1, 1941, the route went daily and mileage was increased to 54.8. Several years later mileage was added to a total of 58.6. About four years ago, mileage was again added to a total of 82. During these years, Delaney used 33 automobiles in serving his route. Delaney was born in Bell City in 1907 and has resided in the area most of his life. He married Hanan V. Alexander of Saratoga, Tex., in 1932 and they have two sons, Andrew Shelby, who is a teacher in Bell City Junior High, and Hanan D., who is a student at McNeese State College in Lake Charles. Delaney has been an active member of the National Rural \ Letter Carriers Association for i 32 years. He has held every state j office in the association as well | as all district offices and has attended many national conventions. He is presently worshipful master of the Masonic Lodge No. 232 in Welsh. He has also been active in many civic projects in his home town. Prior to his retirment, Delaney wrote a letter to all of his patrons thanking them for their cooperation and expressing his appreciation to them- for their many courtesies. Delaney has been a notary public for 32 years and has been an income tax consultant for 23 years. His hobby is photography. He is a Deacon in the First Baptist Church in Hayes.

No extension of the Americans' limited combat role was in prospect, however. The four American dead were reported by reliable sources who could not give the circumstances. U.S. military spokes- 80,000 fighters, men for the time being would confirm the death of only one American. Four more dead would bring the total Americans killed in ac(ion against the Communist Viet Cong to 1G3 since December 1961.' The South Vietnamese gov< ernmenl announced the new buildup Monday after a confer ence between Premier Nguyen Khanh and U.S. Ambassador Maxwell D. Taylor. A U.S. spokesman said the arrival of personnel would be gradual, and the number now planned might be changed as circumstances developed. "This increase in U.S. aid as well as other aid from friendly countries granted at the request of the Vietnamese government should be construed as a warning to the Communists in Hanoi (the capital • of North Viet Nam)," Khanh's government said. The communique said U.S. aid would be increased in the following fields: | —More military advisers for j Vietnamese armed forces, especially at battalion level and in (he Navy and Air Force. —More U.S. Special Forces of guerrilla war experts to advise Vietnamese special forces more Unity of Party Being Sought By Goldwater I talk over legislation facing Con-; Igress and discuss campaign' I plans. !
