TWHVt IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN TUESDAY, MAY 11, IMS. Mixed Market Weakens Little In Active Trade NEW YORK (AP) —A mixed stock market weakened a little in active trading early this afternoon. Although airlines held a string of moderate gains, their best rise was trimmed. Meanwhile, losses in a couple of auto stocks deepened. The list was mixed from the start as analysts saw the market entering, its third straight session of a consolidation movement following the climb to historic peaks which ended late last week. The general economic and business background contained no stimulating developments. The foreign situation continued to be of some concern. Most stock groupings were scrambled. The market was groping for direction. The Associated Press average of 60 stocks at noon was off .5 at 342.2 with industrials off 1.1, rails off .3 and utilities up .3. The Dow Jones industrial average at noon was off 2.15 at 929.32. Eastern Air Lines was up 1% at its best but it sliced this to a small fraction. United Air Lines (ex-dividend) held a gain of nearly a point while slight gains were posted for some oth er airlines. The transfer of big blocks, which highlighted recent sessions, was almost totally absent except for the opening. Prices were generally higher in active trading on the American Stock Exchange. Corporate and U.S. government bonds were mostly unchanged. Trading was light. Obituaries George Nelson George Nelson, 57, Detr o i t, former Ironwood resident, died Sunday.

By Memorial Day weekend, Wright said, we hope to have the clean up project completed and the city to present a clean and inviting appearance. If all the citizens, clubs, and organizations in the city participate in this program, it would show that Ironwood is a good and clean place to live, the mayor stressed, adding that he hoped everyone will make an effort to clean up, renovate and beautify their property. This effort .will more than be repaid in dividends, health, safety, appearance and increased property values, he noted. Wright said he is making a special appeal for any individuals or groups to clean up the vacant lots in the city. If any group could do this, and pile the trash near the curb or alley, the city crews will haul it away, he said. A few new methods are planned this year with regard to clean up, Wright pointed out. City trucks will be parked in various neighborhoods overnight and residents may put trash directly in the truck or at least have it out and ready for pickup the next morning. This should focus attention cleanup in the area. Dumping will be conducted in the caves on the east side of Lowell Street to the Bal s a m Street crossing or at the city dump. Those persons with their own pickup trucks or trailers are invited to dump there. After the cleanup the city will bury the trash by filling over it.

'Hiawatha Trail' Is Designated Members of the Ironwood city commission, at a meet i n g Monday evening, adopted a recommendation submitted by the Ironwood city planning commission that Douglas Boulev a r d . Frederick Street, Suffolk Street and Burma Road, from the intersection of U-2 at one end, and the Hiawatha statue at the other, be designated "Hiawatha Trail," but with reservations. Commissioner Stanley Nez- worski, who declared he was speaking for the majority of the citizens residing on these streets, especially Douglas Boulev a r d . said he was in favor of designating the area "Hiawatha Trail," only if the original names of the streets involved were retained. Apparently this was the view of the other commissio n e r s also, as they agreed to designate the new name, only if the original street names were kept official.

(AP) — Investigators tried today to raise the wreckage of the plane which plunged into the Atlantic Ocean Sunday, killing Carole Tyler and pilot Robert H. Davis. Divers recovered the bodies of Miss Tyler, 26, secretary of 3obby Baker, and Davis, 44, of Suntington, W.Va., from the fuselage Monday. Divers said the body of Miss Tyler was in the front cockpit of ;he plane, in which Davis had taken her for a sightseeing trip over this busy resort. Witnesses said the plane plummeted after reaching the crest of a loop offshore from Baker's Carousel Motel. Civil Aeronautics Board officials indicated it would be some ;ime before they could assemble the plane's wreckage in an attempt to learn the cause of the accident. Baker, who resigned under fire as secretary to the Senate Democratic majority in 1963, participated in the search for the bodies and helped identify them. Miss Tyler and the Carousel were mentioned prominently during 1964 senate hearings into Baker's outside business activities. Probers tried to learn the details of Baker's purchase of a $28,800 Washington town house occupied by Miss Tyler and another secretary, and about his financing of the motel construction. these streets as Trail" would give Hiawatha added impetus to the tourist attracti n g aspects of the 50-foot statute.

Referring to the budget hearing were two items, one a re quest from the Ironwood Blue Knights Junior Drum and Bugle Corps seeking a donation, and one from Oliver W. Olkonen, Go gebic County Mine inspector asking that guard rails be in stalled in the caves area to elim inate what he called a traff i c hazard.

Draft an- Viet Cong Continued from Page One government forces where other Marine was killed last Vriday. Usually only a Viet Cong platoon or less operates in the area, but the Communists can summon reinforcements quickly from the nearby hills. A Marine company charged one of the central hamlets today and ran into sharp sniper fire. One Marine fell, shot through the heart. Marine fire teams then sprayed the Communist position with bullets. One woman was found killed and an old man fatally wounded. Four of six Americans wounded were reported in serious condition. Because of its position 8 miles west of the strategic Da Nang base, wresting Le My from the Viet Cong was considered a must. R. Burr Will Visit Troops in Viet Nam BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) — Raymond Burr, television's Perry Mason, left Bangkok Sunday for South Viet Nam after three days of visiting U.S. troops in Thailand. It was his first visit to Thailand since visiting the country with his father when he was 12 years old. Burr plans to "shake as man hands as possible and say hello" 'to U.S. troops in Viet Nam for about six weeks. Continued from Pare One since civilian salaries might be expected to be greater than those paid to men in uniform. However, some advocates of this course say that in the long run the use of civilians might be at least as cheap, or even cheaper. They note that civilian workers would not be clothed, housed or fed by the government as are soldiers. Also, they would be trained in advance. Another proposal in a sense would mean turning back the clock. Some years ago the services began raising their mental standards and this has prevented thousands of men who might otherwise qualify from joining up. Some officials wonder whether standards need to be as high as they are for those serving as riflemen, mechanics, truck drivers and the like. There is backing for educational incentives to enlist. That is, a youth might be offered financial aid in getting a college education, with that aid based on time he spends in uniform. Another proposal involves expanding the high school junior ROTC into a kind of preparto- ry course for military service. Under orders of Congress, this junior ROTC is being expanded from 254 to 1,200 schools and may have an ultimate enrollment of more than 100,000 youths.
