MONDAY, MAY 24, 1963. IRONWOOD DAILY GtOBP, 1RONWOOD, MICHIGAN Fair Is Short of Cash, Customers By ROBERT HOLTON NEW YORK (AP) —Rounding out the first month of its second and final season, the New York World's Fair today finds itself running short of cash and customers — but not suggestions. Reopening last month at least $17.5 million in the hole, the billion-dollar exposition find attendance figures 30 per cent below the first-month total for 1964. "Undersexed and overpriced" is the way more and more con- cessionaries are describing the fair. "This prudish attitude toward good, clean sex, and boosting the admission price from $2 to $2.50 is killing the fair," said Robert Nelson, manager of the "Dancing Waters" show in the amusement area. Even the international exhibitors, who for the most part don't have to depend on sales and individual gate receipts, have complained about the admission boost. So far, fair President Robert Moses has stood firm in .his determination to keep the admissions at $2.50 throughout the day and evening and ban strip shows. Nelson had planned to stage a "teaseless strip tease" by dancer Sherry Britton in an effort to attract more patrons to his establishment. Fair officials rejected the idea. A spokesman for the Hotel Association of New York City had another dire report. He said advance hotel reservations are running about 50 per cent behind last year for out-of- town fair patrons. Last week Moses and his Worker Is Killed At Chrysler Plant DETROIT (AP) — Edward Jones, 46, of Mount Clemens, employe at Chrysler Corp.'s Mack Ave. plant, was killed at the plant Sunday.

Stamp News By SYD KRONISH AP Newsfeatures To celebrate "Twenty Years of Reconstruction," Austria has issued a new 1.80 schill ing stamp in red-violet. The stamp depicts bombed buildings in the foreground and new, modern edifices in the background. The theme symbolizes the progress made since the conclusion of board of directors suffered a court setback when the city was given approval to inspect the corporation's books. The city comptroller contends the fair borrowed $24 million to use in preparing the 646-acre site for the fair. Moses has said the transfer of the money was not a loan and served notice that it would not be repaid. Although the major industrial exhibitors and such attractions as the U.S. Pavilion, the Vatican Pavilion and the Sir Winston Churchill display issued no official complaint about the price boost, some quietly express their concern. Moses turned down, for the present, at least, suggestions World War II especially in economic development and growth. Another building stamp was also issued by Aus tria showing a residential building. The value is 1.50 schilling. At the same time, Austria's special stamp to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the International Telecommunications Union was placed on sale. » a o Indian has issued a 15-naya p a i s a stamp commemorating the 100th anniversary of the death of Abraham Lincoln, reports the World Wide Philatelic Agency.

Spruill of Plymouth, N.C., lived in Cai Son for five months as military adviser until his Jeep touched off a Communist land mine a year ago.

When a husband grows platonic in his marriage, he may try to regain control of his wife's devotion by holding on to the purse strings very tightly. In psychiatry, we often equate miserliness with a platonic sex life in husbands. For a man who is full of masculine virility is likely to be generous both with love as well s money. Conversely, a husband who is approaching the platonic stage, s likely to be a miser with both ove and money! When husbands enter the male climacteric (counterpart of the eminine menopause), they prout some or all of these clas sical symptoms: (1) They may start drink i n g iquor to excess.
