Thursday, Sept. 21, 1961 The Austin American Austin, TexasPag A37 . i . 1 i . i i TT iiiuTicane Aid Plea Prepared T.y tVw.hingUm Staff WASHINGTON-Prcsident Ken-edy is expected to send to 'the Congress Thursday supplements request for many millions ol dollars to he!? rebuild the homes and businesses lost by Texas victims of Hurricane Carla. Vice President Lyndon Johnson at the request of the President reported to the Cabinet at a lunch eon meeting Wednesday the liitgni or uie iexans, following his survey of the area Monday. Most of the money is expected to come from the Small Business Administration, which can loan money to rebuild homes and businesses and which already had $130 millions on hand. However, since SBA is gelling demands amounting lo $1!0 millions a monlh, it will shortly need "dozens of millions" more to replace the amount used in Texas, it was pointed out. Funds already on hand, held by Army engineers, Agriculture Department and the Office of Emergency Planning, will be going forward without delay for the Texas victims but will have to be replaced. Thus, til is Congress before it adjourns, probably Saturday, will be expected to act to provide funds for the area. Officials theorize that large amounts of the losses will be borne by several different agencies of the Agriculture Department. Following his visit to the area Monday, Johnson has again conferred with heads of agencies who flew over Texas with him and has talked with the Budget Bureau about the needs of the 18 counties. ) SEUTEEPSJ! ftr ' m ! " IPeople (Evacuation Galled Off The two small children of Prmident and Mrs. John F. Kennedy, will ride out Hurricane Esther at the Summer White House on the shore of Cape Cod rather than take shelter at Otis Air Force Base. Earlier there had been plans to evacuate Carolina Kennedy, 3, and infant John Kennedy Jr. to nearby Otis along with six of' their cousins now staying at the Kennedy compound at Hyannis Port. However, weather information late Wednesday " indicated that Esther would not strike enough of a blow to the Hyannis Port area lo make the Kennedy homes unsafe. All the children were taken to a single home in the compound. They include two children of Mr. and Mr. Stephen Smith, three of Mr. ami Mrs. I'etor Lawford and one of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Ted Kennedy. None of the parents are at Cape Cod. Joseph I. Kennedy, the President's lather, is there. While the Summer White House was being buffeted Wednesday by Esther's gales, the main White House at Washington was being picketed by the wife of an imprisoned atom spy. Mrs. Morton SoIhII carried a sign saying: "Mr. President: Today is Yom Kippur . . . Free my husband, Morton SoU-llt" The convicted spy was part of a ring headed by Julius and Etliel Itosmberg, who were executed for giving nuclear secrets to the Com-munisls. Yom Kippur traditionally is a day of atonement for Jews. Funeral services for 69-ycar-old Hoy K. Mnrth, ronixscr of "Ye. Sir, That's My Bahy" and oilier songs, will be held Friday at Phoenix. Marsh was a native of Rutledge, Ala., but he had lived in Arizona since 1912. A pretty expectant mother, whose bullet-ridden and bludgeoned body was found Tuesday in a swamp near Tampa, Fla., was identified Wednesday as 16-year-old Jiramle Due Marshall of Zavalla, Texas. A tentative identification had listed the girl as Sue Waldrup until positive identity was established by the girl's aunt, Mrs. Sara Ilopson of Zavalla. The aunt said the girl, whose maiden name was Marshall, had been married about a year to a man she knew only as "Wood." Sheriff Ed Blackburn said the girl was five to six months pregnant. She had been shot three times near the heart with a large caliber weapon. There was a deep cut on the back of her head. She was fully clothed and had not been criminally assaulted.

Police continued an investigation Wednesday into the biustal murder of 34-year-old Carol Roiian, whose body was found by two of her co-workers when they went to her apartment to sec why slie had not reported for work at the Bureau of Catholic Charities in St.. Paul, Minn. Officers said Miss Ronan, a case worker, was clad only in a shorty nightgown. She apparently had been choked, beaten and raped early Tuesday.

Ulbricht Powers Boosted BERLIN (UPI) - East Germany's puppet parliament Wednesday gave Communist chief Walter Ulbricht sweeping new powers to mobilize industry, private property and the state's manpower through East Germany's Lrst draft. The unanimous parliamentary action was the highlight of a day that saw the hard life of the av erage East German become even harder. Bayonet-bearing Communist po lice sealed off one of the few remaining East Berlin eseane hatches by removing all residents Irom houses and aDartments alnnf an East-West Berlin border street and taking them off to an unknown destination. Sixteen East Germans fled to West Berlin from the border buildings during the night. Communist police hurled tear gag grenades from the windows at Western nhrv tographers on the street below. A West Berlin woman stood in the street and whlsnered "Mv old mother is being taken away" as she watched the Communist trucks drive off with a lifetime's collection of furniture, mementoes and painted flower pots. The move was earned out be hind huge screens painted with the slogan: "The measures of the CDR government have rescued peace in Europe and around the world." The screens were put up to prevent curious West Berliners from watching as the Communists moved about 200 residents from their homes. If they don't patch up the peace of the world the chances are it will go to pieces. Man Goes Berserk One Slain, Two Injured SILSBEE, Tex. (UPI)-A for mer inmate of a state hospital for the criminally insane went berserk Wednesday and shot three men who had come to take him back to the hospital. One of the men he had shot, shot him. The mental case, Gordon Dickinson, 37, killed Bobby Parks, 45, a railroad man who had a wife and four children. He wounded highway patrolman Leo Hickman, 33, and deputy sheriff I. W. Moore, 46. Dickinson was wounded by Hickman in the arm and leg. His condition was not serious. "He was crazy, just crazy," Justice of the Peace C. A. Kimball said. Dickinson had been in the State Hospital for the Criminally Insane at Rusk, Tex. Hickman, Moore and deputy sheriff E. W. Coleman, who wasn't wounded, took commitment papers to a farm house five miles from Sils-bee to get Dickinson. Parks volunteered to go along, because he is a big man and the officers thought Dickinson would have to be bodily brought in. "I went to the door and told Dickinson that I would like to talk to him a few minutes," Coleman said. "He said, 'go away, I've done all the talking I'm going to do.' "I saw him turn and come up with a 22-caliber pistol and I yelled for them all to duck. Hickman was the only one armed at the time. "Dickinson began firing through the front door. We had all got out of the line of fire by then. "Hickman ran to the back of the House and about that time I heard Parks yell that Hickman was shot. I ran to the car and then I heard Parks yell that he had been shot. As I was pulling the car around to the back, Moore yelled tliat he was shot. "I got the car between Dickinson and Hickman, who was lying in the open in the back yard. Dickinson was shooting out of the kitchen window. "I radioed for help and for a tear gas gun and ambulances. But before they could get there, Dickinson came out with his hands up and I put handcuffs on him." A shot in the heart killed Parks almost instantly. Hickman was shot in the back and eye. The eye was removed and his condition was good. Moore suffered a scalp wound and his condition also was good. Dickinson's hon e is at Sour Lake, Tex., 23 miles from Silsbee. He was visiting a sister near Silsbee, which is in Southeast Texas. Justice of the Peace Kimball said Dickinson's mental condition had been getting progressively worse.
