Two Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune U.S. Business Blossomed During April WASHINGTON (UPI) — Business blossomed out in April, the government reported Tuesday. Industrial production, retail sales and personal income climbed to new highs and employment rose sharply. Reports from government agencies added up to a highly encouraging picture of an expanding economy. Officials hoped the new statistics would dispel some of gloom caused by recent declines in the stock market. Administration leaders also were hopeful that the spring spurt would prompt businessmen to boost investment spending, thereby . opening up new jobs and pumping • more thrust into the economy. The federal reserve board said industrial activity rose across a broad front in April with steel the only major area to show a decline. Automobile production increased 8 per cent and a" further, slight rise is occuring in May, the board said. Stepped up output of furniture, television sets and most other consumer goods, as .well as transportation equipment and machinery, all contributed to the expansion. 5-Day Forecast By United Press International Northern 3rd Indiana 5-DAY OUTLOOK: Temperatures will average 4 to 8 degrees above normal.

Senate Halts Squabble On Civil Rights WASHINGTON (UPI)—The Senate shunted the administration's voting rights bill onto the sidetrack , Tuesday—thus bringing a probable end to civil rights fights for the year after a three-week squabble. By a roll call vote of'49 to 34, the Senate accepted Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield's motion to halt the three-week-old rights talkathon and get on to other bus. ess. Thirty Democrats and 19 Republicans went along with the membership, with 22 Democrats and 12 Republicans voting to keep the issue alive.. This brought to an end two days of arguments by supporter; o£ the measure, which would oul law state literacy tests as a voter qualification and make a sixth grade education proof of literacy for participation in federal elections. • Liberal senators put up theii final effort after the Senate refused on Monday, for the second time in six days, to silence South' erners arguing against the bill. Mansfield brought the issue to a final showdown with a motion to take up a textile measure. A majority of the talk-weary members went along, automatically putting voting rights aside. This gave the Kennedy admin' istration, and the Democratic leadership, a one-to-one record tot the year on civil rights. Earlier in the session, backers wore down the Southerners and pushet through a constitutional amend ment which would outlaw poll ' taxes in the five states that stil! have them.

The ruling: divorce petitioned denied. "I have great sympathy," ruled Mr. Justice Havers, "with this husband who had the misfortune to marry a woman who turned out to be lazy, slothful and neglectful of her duties in the home. But mere defects in character and temperament are not sufficient to constitute grounds on which the court can be asked to dissolve the marriage." William Ward had better luck. His wife, Lily, was a positive nagger and used a rather unusual twist. He worked for an ice cream firm and Mrs. Ward began telephoning his bosses. The news she had for them was that •her husband came home with lipstick on his handkerchiefs. She informed her husband's em- ployers that he was running around with other v.'omen. Ac cording to the court record, slu went into great physiological d& tail on the telephone about thesi matters, But his bosses stood by him and gradually Ward began 9 campaign of striking back.
