"Mrs. Eulalia Baker, assistant chief operator for the Southwest ern Bell Telephone Company,. gave a tape-recorded demonstration of the different types of voices heard daily on telephones and commented on their characteristics. ,' President Sidney Smith named Nelson Puett as chairman of a committee to study sources of revenue other than property ad Valorem taxes in an effort by the board to halt the increasing imposts on real estate. Named on the committee with him were Claude D. Wilson, Harold Legge, Richard Doyle, George W. Sand-lin, Vance Riley, Arthur Pihlgren Hal Hendrix, Mrs. Ethel Barrow, Sterling Sasser Sr. and Miles Ilutchens. By ROY L. McGHEE DENVER (UPI) Jet passen ger travel is an accomplished fact over much of the globe today, but the nation's airline executives have no intention of leaving it at that. Robert Six, president of Continental Airlines since 1938, when he was only 31, is a case in point. Six is the 52-year-old dynamo who has guided his small mountain states line into a place as one of the nation's largest. He is also the husband of Broadway star Ethel Merman and has as much showmanship in his business as she does in hers. Six recently installed jet passenger planes on Continental's major routes from Chicago to the West Coast through Kan-sis City and Denver. But before they were in operation a month he petitioned the Civil Aeronautics Board for route extensions to Hawaii. And not only that he wants to cut fare.; to the islands by a third. In the same petition to the CAB, Six let it be known that reduced fares on longer routes aren't all he has in mind. The burly executive, who practices fast draws with a six-gun as a hobby, ajso outlined a plan for supersonic passenger planes. Six assured the CAB that Continental will have planes capable of flying 1,980 miles an hour by 1967 sooner if possible. He told the board the inly thins stopping the airline industry from putting SST's (supersonic transports) in to service in the next two or three years is cost. The planes will retail at about $8,500,000 each, without engines. Power plants will add another $4,500,000-$5,000,000 to their cost. "US manufacturers have the know-how to build the planes right now," Six said. "The only thing lacking is the $50,000,000- $75,000,000 needed for the proto type. "Made of steel and titanium, the STS's will weigh no more than present Boeing 707's and they will be able to use any fields that can handle the 707's. Operational costs will be directly com parable to those of the present jets." SHE KNOWS THE WRITER LONDON (UPD-The Daily Telegraph today published a letter from a mother who described her 3-year-old daughter's first comment on airplane sky-writing. "He's writing again," said the girl. "Who?" asked the mother. "God." replied the child. Freedom Has Strings Attached By J. A. ST. AMANT REDLANDS, Calif. (UPD-Four young classical musicians who pierced the Iron Curiam in a search for anistic freedom arc trying to find out whether there is a market for culture in America. The four are known as the Field Quartet, a string ensemble composed of Otto Field, first violin: Janos (John) Forgacs, second violin; Gyorgy (George) Szende, viola; and Wladyslaw (Lotsie) Przybyla, 'cello.

The quartet has an ambitious tour lined up for the Fall and Winter season, including engage- estabnshing their artistic rity in the free world, which thev have done, and of finding finan cial security for themselves and their families, which they haven't yet. All are determined to become Americans citizens and to make their permanent homes in the United States but the question of money plagues them. Currently they are living at the University of Redlands, where they have been subsidized by the university and by San Francisco industrialist Harold L. Zellerbach. But their contract with the university expires shortly. University and at the University of Oregon, at Washington, D. C, and at Boston, Mass. Then they're off to Salzburg, Austria, to play at the Mozarteum during the international Mozart celebration. They will return to Redlands in the Spring and then head for South America on a 14-concert tour. This, however, will only mean bread-and-butter money, according to Field, and will hardly pay their transportation expenses. So, when they return they will be faced still with the question: Is culture a paying proposition in America? WELDER GAME REFUGE QO Different Birds Found aiSinion SINTON tfl - Experts at the Welder Wildliie Refuge near here have identified more than 400 different birds on the refuge. Dr. Clarence Cottam, director of the Refuge and ornithologist, says approximately 600 species are known to either nest or winter in Texas, hence the number ac counts for at least two-thirds of them. ' Only Rockport, Where Mrs. Jack Hagar has observed birds for years, has a higher species count, with roughly 420. The Texas Coastal Bend is a sort of melting pot for birds, Cot tam says, with species from north, south,, east and west meeting here. The Welder Refuge is 7,800 acres devoted to biological research by the will of the late Bob Welder. Coots are the dominant nesting waterfowl on the Welder, and any tell you that tliey range east of San birdman can never should Antonioi Black-bellied tree ducks aren t supposed to wander north of the Rio Grande, either, but Cottam has seen them on the Refuge for at least two years. Purpole gallinules, Mexican and pied-bill grebes, blue-headed vi recs and a number of warblers winter at the Refuge, entirely un aware that they should be south of the border. i ne groove-billed am, a ragamuffin so common along the border and in Central America, has stopped in to say howdy to the doctor and the rest of the refuge crew.
