BGHT IRONWOOD OAIIY <%IOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN SATURDAY, MAY 29, 1965. « I Bill to Protect Drivers Is Given use Approval By AL SANDNER Associated Press Writer LANSING (AP) —The House voted overwhelmingly Friday to protect drivers from the estimated 600,000 motorists on Michigan highways—for as much as $35,000 in one accident. It passed 87-9 and sent to the Senate a bill establishing an unsatisfied judgment fund to prevent serious economic hardship on persons injured or the families of those killed. It is a concept backed strongly by Secretary of State James Hare and opposed in the past by insurance industry representatives. Supported by a $25 fee on uninsured motorists and a $1 increase in the license plate fee for everyone else, the fund would pay from $300 to $35,000 for one accident from which injury or death resulted. Changing the name from the "unsatisfied judgment fund" to the "motor vehicle accident claims fund," the House adopted a substitute for the plan originally backed by Hare. It would have imposed stiffer application fees on the uninsured, charged insurance companies one-half of one per cent of their gross premiums in Michigan, and required them to help administer the fund. The amended plan is based on an 18-year-old Ontario, Canada fund. A group of legislators visited Toronto, Ont., last week. The Canadians, they said, have found that a high charge simply encouraged the uninsured to try to dodge it. When applying for plates, a motorist would have to provide proof that his car was insured in order to avoid the $25 fee. The fund — designed solely to aid hardship cases—would not pay when compensation was made from any other source — such as insurance or workmen's compensation. The driver of an uninsured car involved in a payable accident would have his license suspended until he: "1 Repaid in full to the fund the amount paid out, or "2. Commenced installment repayments in accordance with an agreement made with the secretary, and "3. Filed proof of financial responsibility." Rep. Donald Holbrook, R Clare, chief author of the amended bill, said that applications against the fund would be made by filling out and filing a simple form with the secretary. The Michigan plan would allow the secretary to make payment if the applicant filled out a written release for the money sought and the defendant submitted written consent, or failed to reply to the charge of liability. The secretary of state may take a case to court to recover funds. He also may be made the subject of a court suit within three years if the driver and ownei of a car causing injury or death cannot be established. If an award is made against an uninsured motorist, the secretary may either honor the award or fight it in court, depending on his judgment of the circumstances. Condition of Girl Is Fair WAKEFIELD — An 11-year- old Bergland girl was reported in "fair" condition today at Divine Infant Hospital after receiving injuries Friday after noon when a car struck her while she was riding her bicycle on M-64, one-tenth of a mile north of M-28, authorities, who investigated the mishap have reported.

Hack and Kathleen Avis KDudson, St. Paul, Steer Owns Extra Hoof PICKFORD (AP) — Charlemagne the steer has five feet firmly on the ground. The animal owned by John 8. McDonald of Pickford was born with three hind legs. The extra one is on its left side. Now 15 months old, the quin- tuped uses all his legs to move around. "Charlie's" extra hoof apparently doesn't interfere with his movements. It helps support the 700-pound bulk of this rare, pure-bred Holstein steer. Except for the extra leg, the steer is normal. It munches hay and grain like other cattle in McDonald's herd. Before he's dispatched to the slaughter house, plans call for! Charlie to be left this summer! in the care of a livery stable! operator on Mackinac Island. > There, the steer will be on display to curious sightseers and vacationers. F.

Little Hope Meld For 400 Miners NEW DELHI, India (AP) — A government spokesman said today there is little hope of anyone escaping alive from the shattered bhori coal mine in eastern India where an explosion killed an estimated 250 to 400 men. Mine officials sealed some air intakes in an effort to stifle the flames that erupted after the blast had ripped through three levels of the mine before dawn Friday. Flames and gases drove rescue teams back to the surface. With many exits covered by fire fighters, any survivors have little chance of escaping, a government spokesman said. The official acknowledged he was "taking the low figure" in estimating that 250 men were dead. Labor union leaders put it at 400. The blast came at shift changing time and officials could not say exactly how many men from the old shift had left the mine or how many of the relief had entered. Teams wearing gas masks entered the mine about 12 hours after the explosion, the Labor Ministry reported. The rescuers pushed into three levels hit by the blast 150 to 200 feet below the surface but they withdrew when the flames broke out. "Nobody who was working down there has yet escaped," the government spokesman said. Unless the flames can be extinguished, he said, it is possible the mine will be sealed tightly. If a government is correct in its estimate that at least 250 men are dead, the Bhori colliery explosion would be the worst mine disaster In India's history, 6 Area Students On Honors List ASHLAND — Six Ironwood students were named to the honors list at the traditional Honors Day Convocation at Northland College.

Even a proposal to use state revenues from the eight race meetings a year to help reduce tolls on the Mackinac Bridge and build a 100,000 seat Olympic stadium in Detroit failed to save the bill. Rep. Arthur Law, D-Pontiac, could muster only 31 votes to bring the bill before the House. He needed 56. He estimated the state's revenue from the races would reach $10 million in three years. Under his proposal, 45 per cent would have been used to cut the bridge tolls, 40 per cent would go to the State Building Authority for the stadium and 15 per cent would go to the coun- Man Is Killed While Changing Flat Tire WEEDSPORT, N.Y.

Imp 3 Satellite Goes Into Orbit By HOWARD BENEDICT CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) — An interplanetary laboratory named Imp 3 rocketed toward an intended wide-looping orbit today to investigate radiation hazards along the astronauts' pathway to the moon. A towering Delta rocket roared away from Cape Kennedy at 7 a.m. to start the 130- pound payload on a course planned to take it 130,000 miles away from earth—halfway to the moon—before it swings back as close as 120 miles at the low point of the orbit. Because of the great distance the satellite must travel, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration said it might take several hours to determine if it achieved the desired course. Imp 3, which stands for Interplanetary Monitoring Platform, is the third of seven similar satellites planned to gather radiation and magnetic field data in support of the U.S. Apollo project to land men on the moon in this decade. A major assignment of the Imp series is to determine if satellite instruments can be used to predict when great flares will erupt on the sun's surface, dumping clouds of cosmic rays with their dangerous highly charged protons into space. Scientists would like to develop a foolproof flare forecasting capability before 1969 when the first Apollo teams are scheduled to rocket toward the moon. The 11-year sun cycle will be at a peak of flare activity that year. Without a reliable prediction system, manned lunar shots might have to be postponed to a calmer sun period. The space agency's Goddard Space Flight Center intends to map an entire 11-year solar cycle with the Imp series, sending two of the payloads into orbit around the moon. The satellite was expected to provide new data on how the earth's magnetic field extends into space and is distorted by the sun's Influence. Hospital Notes GRAND VIEW. Admitted Friday: Mrs. Jerome C.

State Leads in Traffic Deaths By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The nation's traffic deaths in the early hours of the Memorial Day weekend appeared today to be running near the normal mark for a non-holiday period. Millions of motorists headed for the highways in the first holiday weekend of spring and first reports since the count started at 6 p.m. (local time) Friday showed 29 traffic deaths. Michigan reported nine fatalities; Ohio four; Missouri three; two each in Illinois and Indiana and one each in Californa, North Carolina, Texas and Washington. In the first three months this year traffic deaths averaged about 100 a day. The death toll last year was a record high of more than 48,000. The National Safety Council has estimated that between 430 and 510 persons will die in traffic accidents during the 78-hour holiday period, ending at midnight Monday. The record for a three-day observance of Memorial Day was 431 set last year. The lowest total was 204 in 1948. An Associated Press survey of highway fatalities during a three-day non-holiday weekend period, from 6 p.m. Friday May 14 to midnight Monday May 17 showed a total of 387. Although Memorial Day officially is Sunday, millions also will have Monday off from work as most business and industrial establishments will be closed. DeAngelis Gets 10-Year Term NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Anthony (Tino ) DeAngelis was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison Friday for his part in one of history's biggest commercial frauds — a multimillion-dollar vegetable oil swindle that rocked Wall Street. He was sentenced under a new federal law, however, which could make him eligible for parole after serving three months in prison. DeAngelis, 49, a former Bronx N.Y., butcher, listened impassively as Federal Judge Reynier J. Wortendyke passed sentence. Wortendyke levied the maximum sentences of 10 years on each of three charges of circulating forged warehouse receipts and 5 years on one charge of conspiracy to circulate forged receipts, but he ruled the sentences were to run concurrently. This meant a maximum of 10 years in prison. Before passing sentence, the judge told DeAngelis: "You did not intentionally set out to deprive anyone of a dollar.' Wortendyke said he did not believe any of the fraudulently obtained money had been used for De- Angelsi' personal purposes, but had been sunk into his vegetable oil business. LBJ Will Spend Holiday at Ranch By FRANK CORMIER JOHNSON CITY, Tex. (AP) — President Johnson, home In Texas for the first time In six weeks, is being plagued with bad weather. Cloudy skies with occasional thundershowers — some of them heavy — were forecast today for the area of the LBJ Ranch 15 miles west of here. Johnson, who flew to tht ranch Thursday night for the Memorial Day weekend, had plenty of weather troubles Friday. Because of torrential rains and a low ceiling, the President had to fly by helicopter to and from Baylor University commencement exercises in Waco, 120 miles northeast of here. He had hoped to make the trip in his Air Force Jetstar transport. The weather also altered Johnson's plans for delivering the Baylor commencement address. He wanted to use a telep- rompter for the speech, broadcast nationally by television and radio networks, but the necessary equipment got hung up in the clouds aboard a chartered airliner bringing the White House press corps to Waco. Because of rains that caused flash floods in the area, the plane was able to land only after Johnson had arrived at the ceremony. He read a typed copy of the speech. Johnson's first stab at relaxation during the weekend also was affected by the weather. After the Baylor event, he flew to Lyndon B. Johnson Lake — formerly Granite Shoals Lake — north of here for an outing. But clouds hugged the ground there and rain came down in sheets. Mrs. Johnson, who had an engagement in Washington Friday, flew to the ranch Friday night to join her husband. They are expected to return to the capital Monday night. Press secretary George E. Reedy said Friday night that Johnson would hold a news conference next Tuesday at the White House. The 4 p.m. EDT conference will be Johnson's first since April 27 and will be available for live radio and television coverage.
