•Two Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Atlanta In Mourning ATLANTA (UP!) - The "Gate City of the South" wore a mantle of silent mourning today.

Small things bespoke the sorrow of the community. A mourning wreath of Easter lilies hung in the Peachtree St. main entrance of the Atlanta Art Association, which lost 121 of its members when a chartered Air France jetliner crashed and burned at takeoff in Paris Sunday. The plane was to have brought them home after a 26-day art tour of seven European cities; spon- sored by the association, The tourists had been a prime segment of Atlanta civic life, a moving force in its culture. They were leaders. Flags Lowered In country clubs of the northwest 'section of town — the moneyed section of stately homes and tailored grounds where the major, ity of the dead lived — flags were lowered to half staff. Sympathy callers left cards at front ,doors, brought ham and salads and other foods to grieving families in the old Southern custom. Across the front yard of the two-story brick house at .495 Westover Dr., NW, a little red-haired dachshund, named "Padre," roamed as if searching for his two young mistresses, Ellen Bull, 10, and her sister, Betsy, 16. The girls and their mother and father, Mr. and Mrs. Frederick W. Bull EYEWITNESS— '[ Knew There Was Something Wrong 1 PARIS (UPI) — Rafael Garcia has heard and watched hundreds of planes take off from Orly Field.

"You get used to the sound of the engines as the planes, take off," he said. "When I heard this one coming along the runway I knew there was something wrong by the sound of the engine.

I saw the plane hit with ts nose. Then there was a terri- >le explosion, flames everywhere, and big clouds of smoke blacked iut the scene. "1 ran down the garden. It must have been after two or three ninutes that I saw the two air lostesses stumbling 'towards me, each trying to help the other to walk. "They had been blown out of he plane, apparently, by the ex- )losion and landed on the grass. )ne seemed to be injured but the other apparently was only scratched. "To help them I had to get hem over the garden fence. There was a little ladder there, t was not big enough so I had .o pull the rabbit hutch over. "On the other side of the fence •t was not a pretty sight. "There was very little of the >lane left except the tail. "The passengers had been >urned in their seats and they lad melted into a mass that was indescribably horrible. "From time to time when the 'ire had cooled, the firemen with heir asbestos gloves managed to jring out a body. You couldn't call it a body any more, just a Jack shapeless mass. "Police threw covers over them Hit the sight stayed in my eyes. "It was two hours before the lire was out. "I shall remember it all my life." WATSON TAKES SALEM EVENT SAIL/EM, Ind.

Laryngitis still' plagues most of us, hbwever, which doesn't help matters when it conies to the language barriers, v Some say.the virus was caused by exposure. But \ve can't decide if we had been • exposed to too many paintings and.nude sculp^ ture, too many dark arid dank castles, too many steps, too much rain, or too much of each other...
