TUESDAY, JULY 28, 1964, loke Charles American Press Folk Center Planned In Ozarks Community MOUNTAIN VIEW, Ark. (AP)-Since World War I, things have been steadily going downhill in this community in the Ozarks foothills. The young folks set out for the big city and new opportunity and now Stone County has only 6,200 people, mostly farmers, retired persons and welfare clients. It has no industry and little chance of getting any because it can't promise raw materials, trained labor or proximity to markets. IN E. FRANCE RAIN — Widely scattered showers are expected tonight in the southeast and Gulf Coast area. Scattered showers and ihundershowers will spread through the central Plains and into the upper Lakes region. Cooler weather is forecast from the northern Plains into the upper Lakes region with no significant changes elsewhere. (AP Wirephoio).

A drill pipe sunk through 128 feet of mud and rock broke through into an intact part of the mine. Rescuers lowered a highly sensitive listening device down the 6-inch tube but heard only the sound of dripping water and falling stones. Officials said the absence of human sounds was "very disturbing." They said the men would have come to the point where the pipe pierced the mine roof if they were alive and well. One official said it was possible that the area of the mine under the drill pipe was cut off from where the men were sheltered. But in that case the rescuers face new and formidable difficulties when they break through into the mine. The drillers had worked through the night at one spot without making a breakthrough. Then they moved the rig several yards up the hill and started again. The men had been entombed within the 30 - mile labyrinth more than 12 hours when sensitive special equipment, flown in by helicopter, caught what seemed to be faint tapping. The rescue squads were trying to sink a ventilation shaft about 6 inches wide and 65 to 100 feet deep. This would assure a supply of air to the trapped men and would enable surface workers to get messages and food to them. Scores of tearful relatives and friends stood by as the work went on through the night under floodlights. The mine burrows deep within the 2,575-foot mound known as Mt. Rivel, a source of limestone for more than a century. The only entrance to the mine was blocked for more than 1,600 feel by the cave-in.

It has decided to offer to America a place where the art of folk singing and folk culture will be pre* served and nurtured. It is counting on its native culture to bring new life. Mountain View, with a population of 863, is the county seat. It also is the home of folk singer Jimmy Driftwood. Driftwood came home a few years ago, dismayed over the "commercialization" of folk music—that is, songs written by barefoot boys who never wandered far off thick carpeting in Manhattan apartments. "There's nothing wrong with commercial folk music as such," says Driftwood. "It just isn't the real thing." The real thing, or "genuine," as the natives describe it, was performed by Driftwood and his friends on the Capitol steps in Washington. The idea was to interest the Area Redevelopment Administration in helping Mountain View establish a national folklore and native crafts center. The ARA can allocate funds to depressed areas where it thinks the money will create jobs. "This project is unique in two respects," says John Optiz, Arkansas ARA director. "This is the first time an area has banked on its culture, rather than some scenic attraction, to draw tourists. And it's the first time the government has considered helping in such a project." Plans are ambitious. A 2,000- seat auditorium would be built for folk singing and folk drama presentations. Around it would be classrooms for instruction in folk music, folk art, folk dancing and folklore. There would be an arts and crafts centers where craftsmen would demonstrate and sell the works. In nearby buildings visitors would be taught how to .ing the same period in 1!)63. ' make things.

Fahey, who collects rubbish and royalties, is Garbage Man of the Year. The 46-year-old bachelor was honored Monday by the Refuse Removal Journal for his "outstanding contribution to the industry." "Jim Fahey has upgraded the garbage man," said a spokesman for the trade journal. Fahey became a man of litter and literature last year when he published "Pacific War Diary 1942-1945," an account of his experiences as a seaman aboard a cruiser. He has donated all royalties to charity, and lives on the $100 a week he earns driving a garbage truck in Waltham, Mass. Local, Area rl Gain in Debits ATLANTA, Ga. (Spl.) - Lake Charles, along with other southern Louisiana cities, recorded a gain in bank debits in June over the total for the same month last, year, according to a report by the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta. While southern Louisi ana banks recorded a 19 per cent increase, Lake Charles reported a nine per cent increase. Bank debits are considered one of the most reliable indicators of total spending and business activity, since about 90 per cent of the business transactions in this country are settled by check. Figures showed that the total debits in Lake Charles banks in June 1964 were $95,873.000, as compared to $82,091,000 dur- Payment Of SS Benef ifs Explained An explanation of social security payments for those earn ing over $1,200 a year has been made by Julian Covington, Social Security Administration district manager here. A social security beneficiary may make up to $1,200 in a year and still get all of his social security checks for the year, Covington said. "If he makes between $1,200 and $1,700 for the year, he will lose $1 in social security benefits for each $2 of his earnings over $1,200. If he makes over $1,700 in the year, he will lose $1 in benefits for each $2 he earns between $1,200 and $1,700 and $1 in benefits for each $1 ha earns over $1,700," the manager said. The social security office here is located at 3118 Ryan St. lion. Most of this would be government money, with revenue to $3,329 million over the year. loans.

"Definitely not," says Glen Hinkle, a Mountain View utility executive who heads the Stone County Development Council. "We'll build what we can when we can. This project ie the economic salvation of the county and we don't intend to drop it." The only opposition to the proposed folk center comes from a few who believe the influx of tourists will change their town. "But there aren't many of these," Driftwood says. "I was talking to one of them the other day, and, after he cussed for a while, I walked him up on a nearby hill and said: " 'John, I remember standing here with you 20 years ago and those powei !mes weren't over there on that rise, and that highway down there was dusty gravel and you didn't see two cars on it every hour.'
