RECOGNIZED AS OFFICIAL For years sports fans eagerly awaited Grantland Rice's annual all-American team selections. His all-time all-American football team appears in This Week Magazine. Bond of $10,000 was posted for Roberts late yesterday, a few hours after. Circuit Judge Pat Cannon ruled in a habeas corpus hearing that the evidence was insufficient to justify keeping him in jail. , Roberts had been held in the Dade County jail since .Oct. 1. lie was arrested in Baltimore Sept. 27 and brought to Miami after he waived extradition. The pudgy, 43-year-old lawyer, a former organizer for the ClO-United Auto Workers union in Baltimore, was charged with kidnaping and killing his 7-year-old daughter Judith Ann in Miami July 6. One Link In Testimony Testimony of 11 witnesses in the hearing before Judge Cannon produced only one possible link between Roberts and the crime. Clark Wood, a private detective, said he saw a h.eavy-set man standing beside an automobile near the spot where the body of the child was found. Wood said he decided, after seeing newspaper pictures of Roberts, that the man he saw was the father of the murdered girl. ' But Mrs. Dorothy Ann Lawrence, 21 - year - old Baltimore woman who came to Miami with the Roberts family, told a story which if correct meant that Roberts could not have had a part in the crime. Toured Night Clubs She testified that .she and Ro berts spent the entire day of the murder together and were making a tour of Miami night club at the hour, when medical authorities have determined Judith Ann died. State Attorney George Brauti-gam. said, he Kould appeal Judge. Cannon's ruling ' admitting Roberts to bond. But h-!id"lh appeal would cover only the judge's refusal to hear testimony from two Washington private detectives who gave Roberts a lie detector test. r The judge held that testimony about the test, even though it was made at the request of Rob erts, was not legally .admissable. Factor In Indictment The test, which was said to have indicated that Roberts had some knowledge of the crime, was a factor in the father's indictment by the Dade County grand jury Sept. 24. Brautigam, after the hearing, requested the immediate arraignment of Roberts on the murder charge, but defense attorney SauL T. Von Zamft protested that he was not ready. Judge Cannon said he would be ready for the arraignment and for the trial at any time. It was indicated by Brautigam that the state would seek to bring Roberts to trial around the first of the year. Brisk Spell Is A Present From Hazel Florida received its first chilly weather of the fall season today and believe it or not7 Hurri cane Hazel was partly responsible. Miami had a low of 69 degrees around daybreak. But that was warm compared to the 41 re corded in Tallahassee; 48 in Jacksonville: 56 in Tampa and 58 in West Palm Beach. The weather was expected to remain coool throughout today and tonight, warming up again tomorrow. Allen Marshall at the Miami Weather Bureau explained that a cold front which moved down over Florida was pushed along by two things. Hurricane Hazel, moving up in to Canada, has a counter-clock wise motion. A high pressure area over the Great Basin states has a clockwise motion. Conflict of the two pushed the cold air from the northwest down into Florida. Winds today will be from the northwest, moderate to occasion ally fresh in force.

That Was No Mistake Now with all the fumbling that must go to string a football team together, it seemed possible the boys could have gotten their signals mixed. After all, there are right ends and wrong ends. But it was apparent later this reasoning was way out of bounds when members of both teams started using the shirt tails as towels to clean their dirty hands. Dress on the field was quite Associated Pr London, Oct. 11 Do dogs go to heaven? A British judge says he thinks they do but if they don't he won't want to stay there. Judge Tudor Rees gave the opinion yesterday in hearing a claim for damage against Mrs. Lucy Prosser, former tenant of a house in suburban Banstead. Mrs. Prosser said she bred dogs, but after complaints from her neighbors she agreed not to let them in her house. "But that is like shutting out a member of the family," said Judge Rees. "What is the use of having such a faithful friend If you cannot have him in the house?" "If unswerving fidelity and unfailing affection are passports lo paradise all dogs will have honored places there," he added. "And if I do not find dogs in paradise, it will not be paradise for me and I shall probably apply for a transfer to the other place." The judge found Mrs. Prosser responsible for the damage to the house but added: "1 do not blame fie dogs." Truck Strike Hits N. Y. City - Associated Prrsa New York, Oct. 16 A truck striked idling more than 23,000 drivers, hit New York City and a wide surrounding area today and threatens to choke off the region's commerce. The AFL Teamsters Union called the strike of a general freight drivers at one minute after midnight to back up wage increase demands. Emergency mediation sessions failed to avert the scheduled walkout. Mayor Robert F. Wagner, of New York, who viewed the strike as "disastrous" for the city's trade, sought vainly for a last-minute delay to permit further negotiations. Teamsters leaders turned down his appeal, saying the strike had already been postponed twice for a total of 45 days with no agreement in sight. The strike affects all metropolitan New York and Long Island, reaches deep into New Jersey and up to Poughkeepsie in New York state. New Jersey is affected as far south as Trenton. The truck strike is expected to have little influence during the weekend business lull. It's main impact will come Monday or later. Freight blocked by the strike includes food for major chain stores, supplies for defense factories, newsprint and exports and imports. Without trucks to carry cargos from railroad and steamship terminals, shipping will eventually be jammed behind huge piles of un- ved freight. optional.

Hundreds of families fled their homes as the Allegheny and Mo-nongahela. Rivers, two giants which form the Ohio River at the steel city, rose swiftly. The U. S. Weather Bureau predicted a 30-foot crest for the streams. That crest would be five feet above flood stage. Like the rest of the areas hit by the hurricane, the Pittsburgh section reported untold millions of dollars in property damage. No deaths or injuries were known immediately. Termed one of the worst con tinental storms of the century. and spawned 11 days ago in the Windward Islands about 1,600 miles east-southeast of Miami, Hazel's 130-mile-an-hour center devastated the island of Haiti last Tuesday, leaving reportedly more than 100 dead on that tropic isle.
