The roundup begins Friday night, May 9, with a ham and bean feed and concert by Blue Horizon. A jam fest with local and area music lovers also is planned. Activities Saturday include musical performances from a stage donated by Elmer and Lou Smith of Weskan and put together by supporters of the Rattlesnake Roundup, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the improvement of Wallace County. On Saturday, May 10, and Sunday, May 11, a group calling itself "Fangs and Rattlers" will be in the rattlesnake pit area to do research and milk venom. New this year will be a petting porch, where visitors can touch or hold a non-poisonous snake such as a bull snake. Also scheduled May 11 is a show by Tony Stewart and his stock dogs. It will be followed by the measuring of the live snakes. Last year's state record snake measured 54 '/a inches. the Salina Journal Published seven days a week, 365 days a year at 333 S. Fourth, P.O.

A large version of the wagon was built for a toy convention. Hot Wheels Radio Flyers could form a wagon train across U.S. By CLIFF EDWARDS "We really are the keepers of an American By CLIFF EDWARDS The Associated Press CHICAGO — For 80 years, children have climbed into their Radio Flyers and hitched their little red wagons to a star. Without batteries or high-tech innovations, these toys have allowed young minds to soar. "A wagon unleashes a child's imagination," said Robert Pasin, president of Radio Flyer Inc. "It can be anything the child imagines it to be — it can be a spaceship, a train, a race car, a submarine. "Every time I meet people, they always have a Radio Flyer story." Pasin, 27, and his older brothers, Antonio and Paul, are the third generation of their family to run the Chicago-based company, which boasts it is a market leader in sales of wooden, plastic and its signature steel wagons. They're cranked out daily from a factory on the city's far West Side. "We really are the keepers of an American icon, and in one sense that's kind of awing," Pasin said. Radio Flyer traces its roots to 1917, when Italian immigrant carpenter Antonio Pasin began making wooden wagons. Ten years later, he adopted the steel assembly-line process pioneered by Ford and began churning out Radio Flyers. But the company didn't really make a name for itself until the World's Fair in Chicago in 1933-34, when Antonio Pasin gambled on a $30,000 loan to build a 45-foot boy on a wagon. The exhibit was a hit. The company's innovation that has kept Radio Flyer popular through generations of changing styles, said Terri Bartlett, a spokeswoman for the trade group Toy Manufacturers of America.. "It's just a classic, well known and very innovative company," Bartlett said. "It's like when you say Kleenex for tissues. When you say wagon, Radio Flyer comes to mind." THE SALINA JOURNAL T WHITE HOUSE Clintons refuse to give notes Legal battle over first lady's talks with lawyers going to Supreme Court By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — In a battle fought in secret for the last year, the White House has refused to provide Whitewater investigator's with nine sets of notes from conversations between Hillary Rodham Clinton and White House attorneys, according to a court ruling unsealed Friday. The battle is heading quickly to the Supreme Court. President Clinton authorized the challenge after a federal appeals court ordered the White House to surrender two sets of the notes, White House counsel Charles F.C. Ruff announced. The two sets involve Hillary Clinton's conversations with White House lawyers concerning her actions following the death of former deputy counsel Vincent Foster and the mysterious disappearance and reappearance of her law firm billing records. Both issues have become key focuses of Whitewater prosecutor Kenneth Starr whose investigation has moved beyond decade-old Arkansas financial transactions to questions of obstruction, perjury and witness tampering since the Clintons took the White House. In denying the notes to Starr, the White House made claims of executive privilege, attorney- client privilege and attorney work product protections. The denials came even as the White House was publicly declaring its full cooperation with the special prosecutor. The records had been subpoenaed by a grand jury. ';;, T BANKRUPTCY Official found guilty for scheme By The Associated Press SANTA ANA, Calif. — Former Orange County assistant treasurer Matthew Raabe was convicted Friday of misappropriating $88 million in the years just before the county's bankruptcy. Raabe, 40, faces up to 14 years in prison. Prosecutors said Raabe used profits from investments by school districts, cities and other agencies to supplement the county general fund, concealing unusually high yields from risky securities. He was convicted of two counts of making false statements in the sale of securities and one count each of misappropriation of public funds, falsification and concealment of public accounts and unlawful failure to transfer public funds. The county filed for federal protection from creditors in 1994 after it was revealed then-Treasurer Robert Citron's bets on speculative securities had lost $1.64 billion.
