Girls Injured In Accident ROCHESTER—Miss Noelle Glen Musselman, 22, route 4, Rochester, and Rebecca Ann Newell, 21, 219 Fulton Ave. were both injured at 12:40 a.m. Saturday when the 1962 car driven by Miss Musselman went out of control on Indiana 14 two miles east of the city and flipped over. Miss Musselman, who was pinned in the car for nearly half an hour, received bruises, facial, neck and back injuries .and gasoline burns. The gasoline burns occurred as Miss Musselman laid in a pool of gasoline while officers freed her from the car. Miss Musselman was admitted to Woodlawn hospital. Miss Newell was thrown from the car and was treated for minor injuries at the hospital and released. Miss Musselman was pinned between the top of the overturned car and the top of the two front seats. Skid marks indicated that the car, headed east, went out of control on the left side of the highway as it rounded a curve. The car traveled 186 feet and hit a wire fence surrounding a digging into the ground. It then traveled forward into a wheat field on the ' Hugh Hunneshagcn farm and landed on its top. The car then continued to skid for another 36 feet. The car was estimated to be a loss of $1,88. The accident was investigated by the sheriff's department, state police and city police. Wesley Weller, 83, Macy, was listed in fair condition Saturday in Woodlawn hospital after being dragged for about one-fourth mile by his tractor while being struck repeatedly by a rotary hoe. Weller was knocked from the tractor to the frame of the rotary hoe by a tree limb while working on his farm four miles northwest of Macy in Miami county Friday. The tractor went through several fields and fences before liitting a plowed furrow and then going into a circular pattern. Vernon Mathiss, route 1, Roann, driving by Weller's farm, saw the tractor. He rushed to the vehicle and pulled ignition wires to slop it. Tim DuBois, who was with Mathias, then called for the Haupert funeral home ambulance. Tom Haupert extricated Weller from the rotary hoe and an Akron doctor arrived soon to give medical aid. Weller then was taken to the hospital. He suffered puncture injuries over a considerable portion of his right side of his body and his back. At 10 p.m. Friday city police officers backed into a car parked at Miller's Standard service station at the south edge of the city. Damage to the car, owned by Jake Miller, was estimated at $40, but do damage was reported to the police car. They investigated their own accident. Change of venue to Kosciusko circuit court w;js granted in Fulton circuit court Friday in the damage suit of Ralph D. Webster against Nona ,T. Lawson and Carrie Deakin. The case was venucd here from Pulaski circuit court Jan. .TO, 1.957. Two jury trials both favored the defendants, but after the second one (he Indiana Appelatc Court granted a new trial. Marriage license .applications were issued by County clerk Gerald Knauff Friday to Gary L. Brown and Bonita C. Helvie, both of Akron, and to William E. Fleming, Hobart, and Ann Smiley, R.R. 1, Rochester. this Father's Day weekend: He is the • oldest father in the state and has 13 children — the oldest 82, the youngest 9. He is the oldest physically fit man in the world. He is 103 years old. Carrizales says he was born Lati Macalca in Sapulpa, Okla., in 1859, and never saw a white man until he was 18 years' old. His father was Chief White Horse. He says he once worked on an Oklahoma ranch with Buffalo Bill Cody, know the late Will Rogers and toured with the Ringling Bros, and Cole Bros, circuses. Carrizales says he married for the first time at the age of 21, after a visiting Englishmen persuaded him to go to England with him, promising him one of his sisters in marriage. He says his wife taught him to read and write. He never went to school. He speaks English, French, Italian, Greek, Portuguese and three Indian dialects, and sometimes is called into court here to act as an interpreter. About 20 years ago, Oarrizale joined the YMCA here, giving his age as 80. He works out often in the gymnasium. 'MMCA athletic director John Schmidt says: "It's hard to believe he's past 300 years old. He has better muscle tone than most men of BO." Carrizales made national headlines whan, at the age of 84, he married a 24-year-old Des Moines woman. They had six children — the last, he says, when he was 94. They since have been divorced. He says he also had seven children by previous marriages. The old Indian gives these rules for longevity: "Don't smoke or drink. Consume six to seven glasses of milk per day. Sleep only from midnight to 3:45 a.m. Walk 25 miles per day. Eat heartily — lots of moat. Work hard — sit little. Don't walk across the street in front of traffic — run.

OAS Faction Set To Settle TerroristWar ALGIERS (AP)-A .strong faction of the European Secret Army Organization was reported willing Saturday to settle its terrorist war if it can win amnesty for its members from the future Moslem government of an independent Algeria. But fire engines still sped through garbage and debris-littered streets during the day to put out sporadic fires triggered by bombs set by arson squads. At the same time a possible new complication for the new Algieran state, yet to be born in a referendum July 1, developed from French military reports that Moroccan army units have invaded the Algerian Sahara and advanced 15 miles over the vord- er. For some time lx>th Tunisia and Morocco have laid claims to part of the Algerian Sahara, but agreed last year not to press their claims until Algeria is independent. The reported willingness of some secret army leaders to settle for a sweeping amnesty came from last-ditch efforts in the guarded Rocher Noir administrative center outside Algiers to find a solution acceptable to both Moslems and Europeans. Respected representatives of the - European community were meeting with Moslem members of Algeria's temporary executive, who relayed reports to the Moslem Front of National Liberation (FJJN), which waged the war for independence. Earlier contacts were dropped when the secret army abandoned efforts to win further guarantees for Europeans who remain in Algeria after it is independent. An all-out scorched earth campaign was ordered to begin'Friday with the announced purpose of leaving nothing but a ruined economic shell for Algeria's future rulers. Armor-backed French troops surrounded the Algiers central post office after rumors swept the .city that the huge building would be blown up. Soldiers strung barbed wire rolls around the building. Most branch postoffices already have been destroyed. French soldiers were setting up barbed wire enclosures around various military objects and public buildings in the city. But many targets of the secret army continued to go up in smoke. Gas stations, stores, a Jewish girls technical school, and the city motor park were set aflame by arson squads. City authorities, operating from makeshift quarters after the City 'Hall was shattered by pre-set bombs Friday night, announced that a major portion of power sup. plied to Algiers was coming from Oran after the demolition of control installations at Darguina Dam. The dam, 100 miles easl of Algiers, was one of the city's main power suppliers. The Moroccan army movement inside Algeria was reported by the French to be toward the booming Sahara town of Colomb Bechar, near Algeria's only coal mines and about 30 miles from the Moroccan border. Military sources said Moroccan units had occupied the village of Fort Affa, 15 miles inside Algeria. French observation planes first observed Moroccan units in the adjacent area a week ago. Minor Damage In Crash On Broadway Minor damage resulted in an auto accident on East Broadway 250 feet west of Fifth at 4:40 p.m. Saturday. According to police, a 1948 model fordor driven by Dcllmus Hall, 25, of route 4, Peru, was hil from the rear by a 1953 model ludor driven by Arthur R, Le- mastcr, 19, of 619 Bates.
