Eight Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Estes Refuses to Answer Questions FRANKLIN, Tex. (UPD-Billie Sol Estes' testimony before a state grand jury may have shed ROCHESTER— School Board Hires! New Instructors ROCHESTER — The Board of Trustees of the Rochester Community Schools hired two new teachers for the fall during a regular meeting this week. Four major teaching positions including band director, special education class teacher, fourth grade at Columbia elementary and head football coach. The new teachers hired include Ronald Kuehl of Peru, a 1962 graduate 'of Ball State Teachers College and Miss Judith Cook of Warsaw, a 1962 graduate of Huntington College. Kuehl was hired to leach business education and to be faculty adviser for "Manitou Ripples", the high school yearbook. He replaces Kent Beeler, who has resigned. Miss Cook will succeed James Moody as a high school English teacher. Police • Chief John Hatch said today that Ronnie Powell, local post office employee, was bitten by a dog while delivering mail Monday. The dog has been impounded for two weeks, to determine if it has rabies. Powell, who received a one-inch gash on his leg, was treated by a Rochester physician. No stitches were required. Post office employees are cooperating with the city police in the campaign to stop the running of loose dogs in the city. The mail carriers are preparing lists of owners who permit their dogs to run and are turning them into the city police. Miss Jane D. Thompson, 18, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gene Thompson, rural route 1, Rochester, has joined the Women's Air Force for a four-year tour of duty. She was inducted at Indianapolis Monday and left by jet for Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, to take eight weeks of basic training. Miss Thompson is a 1961 graduate of Rochester high school and attended Manchester college for one year. Mr. and Mrs. Paul Lee Holloway, Mentone. are the parents of a son born June 8, at Woodlawn hospital. Maternal grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. Albert Bowen, Rochester. Mrs. Grace Burton, assistant to (he Home Demonstration agent, took five 4-H junior leaders from Fulton County for a four-day conference of junior leaders from Indiana at Ball State Teachers College in Munde. The group left Wednesday. They are Jane Ann Smith, Chippewanuck club; Hallie Weber, Woodrow; Marilyn Sellers, Aubbeenaubbee; Robert Burton, Union, and Wayne Thomas, Wayne. Phyllis Shaffer, Aubbeenaubbee. is also attending the conference. new light on the mysterious death of federal agriculture official Henry H. Marshall'. Estes, who appeared about two hours Wednesday before the grand jury investigating Marshall's death, invoked the Texas version of the Fifth Amendment total of between 50 and 100 :imes, a source said, However, Dist. Atty. Bryan Russ said his testimony opened "new areas" into the investigation. He' would not elaborate on the statement except to say that Estes had been "helpful." Russ said Estes refused to answer "many questions" at a 40-minute morning appearance but cooperated at a 75-minute afternoon session. Dist. Judge John Barren worked out a compromise for the afternoon session after the grand jury brought legal pressure seeking to force Estes to answer all the questions on which he pleaded possible self-incrimination in the morning. Russ said that as far as he knows the grand jury, which recessed until 9 a.m. next Monday, will not need any further testimony from Estes. Three or four witnesses will be called next Monday, and Russ indicated some of them might be agriculture officials. The grand jury, in its fourth week of deliberation after the case was re-opened, is trying to determine whether Marshall was murdered or committed suicide. Marshall' was supposed to have been the first agriculture official to investigate Estes. Marshall was found dead on his farm near Franklin June 3, 1951. A justice of the peace ruled suicide at the time. However, an autopsy on his exhumed body showed that he had been shot five times with a 22- caliber bolt-action rifle, suffered a stunning blow on the head, and tests indicated a near-fatal dose of carbon monoxide in his bloodstream. House to OK Hike Of Debt WASHINGTON (UPI) -House members today were ready to reluctantly raise the national debt ceiling to a record $308 billion. Administration forces figured they had the votes to. push the $8 billion increase through. It would keep the government ahead of its bills through the slow tax-collecting season. Republicans offered $306 billion as a substitute ceiling. They charged the Pentagon was trying to blackmail them by threatening to cut defense contracts unless Congress makes the limit $308 billion. Democrats, however, said the Pentagon did nothing wrong in simply saying that if the money was not available, it would not be spent. The bill's manager, Chairman Wilbur Mills, D-Ark., of the ways & means committee, said Congress had authorized all the spending and not enough money was available to cover it all. Other congressional news: Television: The Senate was expected to pass legislation requiring manufacturers to make 82- channel television sets to give the 55 million Americans viewers a wider choice of stations and programs. Under the bill, all sets sold in interstate commerce would have to carry the 12 popular VHF (very high frequency) channels, plus the 70 UKF (ultra high frequency) channels now largely used by educational TV i Him. ETHEL WATERS THRILLS CROWD AT CHICAGO CHICAGO (UPD- Negro blues singer Ethel Waters stepped out of the 1,500-voice choir Wednesday night and sang "His Eye Is on the Sparrow" to some 33,000 persons at Billy Graham's Chicago crusade. Miss Waters, 61, collapsed last March while singing at a Youth for Christ rally in Los Angeles. Two years ago she was hospitalized with ^ serious heart ailment, which threatened to'end the singing career she began in 1924 in a show called the "Plantation Review." Her autobiography, also titled "His Eye Is on the Sparrow," was a bestseller 10 years ago. Graham had spotted. Miss Waters, of Pasadena, Calif., in the choir and invited her to do a solo. In his sermon Wednesday night, Graham said persons who perform the rituals of Christianity are not necessarily Christians. Neither, he said, are persons who possess "moral virtues" or live "respectable" lives necessarily Christians. "A Christian -is a person in whom Christ dwells. Millions of men and women in sight of salvation are bogged in confusion because they don't know that the cross they see is the way to victory," he said. Graham said he encounter with a living Christ cannot take place until a person realizes he has broken God's laws. "Then we must be willing to receive God by faith, and be willing to obey stations. Republicans opposed the bill as an unwarranted extension of government controls. Hospital: Health, Education and Welfare Secretary Abraham Ribi- coff told Congress his department supports a bill to strike the "separate but equal" clause from the Hospital and Medical Facilities Construction Act. He said the administration strongly supports making "nondiscrimination assurances mandatory." Local Man Named Delegate to Church Convention in Ohio The Rev.
