(AP Photo Map Spring To Bring Debut For Interstate Road Numbering LANSING, Jan. 8 W -r- A new numbering system for the national network of interstate highways will make its debut in Michigan in early spring.

The renumbering was worked out by the U.S. Bureau of Public' Roads and the American Assn. of State Highway Officials. It will permit a motorist to travel coast-to-coast without changing routes. New U.S.-12 Its effect in Michigan will mean new designations for the present U.S. 12, U.S. 16 and a combination of routes leading from Toledo to Bault Ste. Marie via Detroit.

The trio is Roosevelt Bond, 48, of 2645 Somerleyton rd., Robert Weston, 32, of 1205 E. Main St., and Annie Sills, 34, 128 S. Crystal ave., all of Benton Harbor area. Sheriff's Dets. Charles Andrews and Wesley Bowerman said three checks, totaling $352, were involved. Two of them, which amounted to $270, dated back to September, 1956. The other was stolen last April. Detectives said Bond once served a prison term in Arkansas for the the same offense. Dets. Andrews and Bowerman said Bond and Miss Sill stole two checks in 1956. They also said Bond and Weston stole the check last April. Postal authorities joined in the investigation yesterday. Charges of forgery, conspiracy, and larceny from the mails, are expected to be filed against the trio. Leads f ranee Continued from Page, 1 of the new Fifth Republic by an overwhelming vote. One of his first acts as president is expected to be the naming of Michel Debre, 46-year-old justice minister in his cabinet, to be premier of the new government. Thirty-two Republican guards on motorcycles escorted De Gaulle's limousine on the fast drive this morning from the premier's residence, the Hotel Matignon, to the Elysee. Flags bedecked the streets and thin crowds already had gathered in crisp, cloudy, 42-degree weather for the presidential parade in the afternoon. The 68-year-old warrior-statesman sat bareheaded in the back of the limousine, wearing a morning coat and striped trousers for the first time in his public life.

Previously, he was production machine operator, tool-maker, machine shop foreman, and plant superintendent with the company. He had also been employed by Tir-rell .Manufacturing Co., Gast's predecessor. William Gast, company president, says that Hammer was made maintenance foreman when his health demanded curtailment "We feel that one only need look at the outside and inside conditions of our facilities on M-139 to realize the type of job this man did for our company," Gast says. Since 1941, Hammer, his wife and his'son, Paul, who works at Heath Co., have lived at 1237 Riverwood terr. A daughter, Ruth, teaches in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Two married daughters are Mrs. Garner Pen-nock, Battle Creek, and Mrs. Edwin Kizer, South Bend, Ind.

Large 10-50 pound units of good-keeping quality are being featured at low prices. Fruits Price on apples are extremely low, particularly on Mcin tosh. Grapefruit prices are at about the same price as last year because fewer trees were damaged by the 1958 freeze. More damage was done to Florida orange trees and the total orange crop is smaller. Frozen vegetables are ample and many are featured this week. .
