Spotted Elk, It Turns Out, Ho$ Spotty Army Record and a Good Imagination MONTGOMERY, Ala., June 10. — (UP)—Oh Spotted Elk, the Great White Father Is displeased with you. Pvt. Lee Orange, who says he's a full-blood Cheyenne Indian and called Spotted Elk by his tribesmen, told Arkansas newsmen that he bailed out of a c-47 transport plane Sunday, en route to Carnegie, OMa., to see his new-born son. Orange, who said he was a corporal, told reporters that he couldn't get a furlough, so ho caught a ride on the C-4T ship leaving ounter Field here Sunday. 'Dixie Downs' Is Target of Bishop'si re -,* MEMPHIS, Tenn., June 10. — (UP)—Bishop William T. Witkins of Louisville. Ky., cited gambling conditions in his home city yesterday in speaking out against the proposed $2,000,000 "Db:ie Downs" race track near West Memphis, Ark! Watkins, here to preside al the 110th annual session of the Memphis Conference of the Methodist Church said that he has "lived for four years in a city where the race track and associated gambling have been an established custom for more than half a century." "I think any minister In my city " he said, "would testify that bookmakers create problems in his nar- Jsh by taking the small wa «e earner's bets. This depletes family incomes to the point of making the family social charges In many instances. In other Instances, it leads to crime and tragedy " j, Watkins said that he "knows no =city where a race track Is an asset." Law enforcement agencies have never been able to control the bookmakers in a city where there is a race track," he said. "It Is against the law but bets can be placed anywhere in Louisville." City officials have engaged in a controversy with Gov. Ben Laney of Arkansas over the proposed track Laney claims that he was pressured by Mayor James Pleasants to tt:>;.i down an application for the racinp plant. B Laney is expected to consider the construction permit at a hearm° June 23 at Little Rock- in connection with the first sentence. To further ruin a good story, officials said only one c-47 left either Gunter or Maxwell here Sunday. Lt went to Lawson Field, Ga and back. Additionally, C-47 men question that parachuting from that type of ship is a one-man Job. It would lake superhuman strength In flight to open the hatch. Besides, how did he stick around to close the door back, once outside the plane. Had the hatch been left open, by Air Corps regulations, the pilot would have reported it.

Tenn., and hitchhiked to North Little Rock, Ark. Police picked him up there and turned him over to the military at the Hot Springs Army and Navy Hospital. He told the provost marshall that he had been in the Air years and liad had a 10 at the conclusion of his basic training. He said the child was born to his 23-year-old wife three weeks ago. The Air Force version of the saga of Private Orange differs. Three weeks ago, said the Air Force, Orange was given a furlough and a $40 cash advance, to make the Oklahoma trek. Where he went isn't included in the official record. But he reappeared without the $40, and with a hangover. That is in the record. The furlough was rescinded. ; The AAF said Orange : h"«a been at Gunter Air Force base since January. His record shows two court martials.
