Miss U.S.A. Surprises Daddy bE fl mW. iM r AP Wirephoto MISS USA SHARON BROWN AIMS FOR UNIVERSE Louisiana beauty won scepter, crown at Miami Beach MIAMI BEACH, Fla., July 14 - UP) "My daddy will probably faint when he hears this," said Sharon Brown moments after she was crowned Miss U.S.A. "He thought I should improve my carriage. That's why I went to modeling school." Roy Brown, a contractor, had not' come to watch his daughter compete in the beauty pageant, and Sharon was anxious to break away from the well wishers to phone home the news: "I think I'll call collect," she said and laughed through her tears at her joke. The 18-year-old brunette from Minden, La., won the right last night to represent the nation against 47 foreign entries for the Miss Universe title. The last 90 minutes of the two-day competition will be televised nationally Saturday night. Sharon was chosen to succeed Linda Bement of Salt Lake City, Utah, last year's Miss U.S.A. and Miss Universe, from five girls who reached the finals. The four runners-up, in this order, were Pamela Stettler, 18, of San Rafael, Calif.; Karen Weller, 18, of Las Vegas, Nev.; Alexa Currey, 22, New York City, and Suel-len, 19, of Fairfax, Ala. Sharon, at 5-foot-7, was one of the tallest of the 43 girls who competed in the Miss U.S.A. contest. Her measurements are 36-23-36. She has been a model and beauty contest winner since February, 1960 when she won the "Miss Stock Show" crown at Waterproof, then her home town. "The Rotary club entered me," Sharon said. "I was a senior in high school. I won, but when the contest was over they told me not to enter another without some training. "My parents thought it would be a good idea; my father thought I didn't walk properly, so I was entered in a modeling school at Monroe. I drove the 100 miles every Tuesday after chemistry class?' "I'd like to do some television commercials like opening refrigerators, but I'd probably get my thumb jammed in the door," she said. "I'm going to finish college first." Sharon has just completed her freshman year at Louisiana Tech, where she is majoring in speech and drama. A newsman asked her what she was going to do with the $1,000 she had won. "What," she cried, "You mean I've won $1,000? I didn't read about that. I have no idea what I'll do with it."

Sherwin's attorney said government officials have also hinted at a possible civil liability of $65,000 in taxes and penalties. The .

Earl Warren in 1953 Auto Makers, Union Get Down to Cases DETROIT, July 14 If) After nearly two and one-half weeks of bargaining, the auto companies and the United Auto Workers came to grips today on issues that could lead to a strike in the auto industry if they aren't settled by the end of next month. The issues represent the union's bread - and - butter demandshigher wages and improved fringe benefits. General Motors Corp. served notice yesterday that "both subjects will be a most serious pari, of our collective bargain ing talks until the very end." Present three-year contracts with GM, Ford and Chrysler expire Aug. 31. GM Vice President Louis G. Seaton said, "We say this be cause it is obvious too great an increase in employment costs whether in the form of wages, fringe benefits, or both, can only push up costs to the point where renewed inflation would again result in rising prices." The union singled out GM in outlining its wage demands for the first time. They figured out to an increase of at least 26 cents an hour in the basic wages of GM's 310,-000 production workers. This would include the 17 cents an hour cost of living allowance UAW members now receive in addition to straight time pay of $2.55. The UAW put no estimates on its wage demands but it issued a statement declaring it was inaccurate and mis leading to say they would i union's bargaining team , at amount basically to an in-1 GM, said in no way could the crease of 26 cents an hour. UAW Vice President Leonard Woodcock, head of the 17 cents cost of living allow ance be considered "new money. WASHINGTON, July 14- (UPD President Kennedy was reported today to have found unacceptable an initial Republican compromise offer on foreign aid financing. This beeame known after Kennedy met with five Demo crats and two Republicans of the House Foreign Affairs Committee on his request for authority to make advance foreign aid commitments for as long as five years and to finance the program from Treasury borrowing. Rep. Walter Judd (R. Minn.), a GOP foreign leader, countered with an offer to accept the five-year advance commitments but require Congressional control of actual spending on a year-to-year basis. Judd did not at tend the meeting today. Rep. William S. Broom-field (R., Mich.) said after the 45-minute session with Kennedy that he felt the President might be willing to reduce the length of commit ments to three or four years. But Broomfield said he got the idea Kennedy would stand fast on his proposed financ ing, which Republicans oppose as "back door financing." Broomfield called the discussion with Kennedy "very healthy" but emphasized that "nothing concrete was decided." He said Kennedy listened carefully to the opinions of the House members as well as giving them his own thoughts. Oakland Tribune, E 3 Fridav. Julv 14. 1961 ml - , Protests by a church group will prevent Slim Jenkins from moving his night spot to a former mayonnaise factory. Jenkins must leave the lo cation at 1748 7th St. where his night cluz has been an Oakland landmark for 26 years because the building has been sold and will be torn down to make way for a service station. Ttoday James Quinn, hearing officer for the city manager, turned down an application for a cabaret permit for Jenkins' proposed new spot at 975 West Grand Ave. Quinn said he had no al tentative because of protests by 13 members, mainly wo men, of the Mt. Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church at 1028 West Grand Ave., across the street and 227 feet from the proposed new location. A city ordinance prohibits operation of a cabaret within 300 feet of a place of worship if there are protests. Jenkins has operated his spot for more than a quarter of a century and all city de partments, including police report the place never has been a problem.
