Wilkinson just returned from an on-the-scene investigation of fee June 12 prison break.

Read the Want Ads! gency Planning (OEP), said former Defense Mobilizer Arthur S. Hemming pushed stockpile target objectives higher and higher by disregarding presidential directives and even his own 'previous instructions. The higher stockpile objectives were used to justify purchases of lead and zinc that were not needed for defense .mobilization purposes, Lawrence told the Senate armed services subcommittee studying the stockpile problem. "He (Flemming) had directions," Lawrence said. But he said Flemming never told him who gave the orders. Lawrence said Flemming's staff was dismayed by the juggling of stockpile targets. "I don't think anybody enjoyed wasting money like we did," the career civil servant testified. . Statistic supplied by the subcommittee showed that the government purchased $204.4 million worth of lead and zinc in the 1954-1958 period. The purchases contributed markedly to current surpluses of 1.4 million tons of zinc and 1 million tons of lead. At current market prices the lead-zinc inventories show paper losses .of $284.7 million. The market would drop further if the government tried to unload any substantial quantity of surpluses. Lawrence said the zinc-lead buying program started in 1854 with a presidential directive permitting long-range stockpile objectives for any material to be fixed at not less than one .year's normal domestic consumption.

(UPI) — The defense was expected to rest its case today in the federal tax eva- ion trial of Hammond City councilman G. Homer Wolf. Wolf's legal counsel moved for . directed verdict of acquittal Wednesday after the government rested. But Judge Robert A. Grant denied the motion. Palmer Singleton, Jr., Hammond city attorney in 1955, was the sole defense witness Wednesday. He told the jury he drew up an ordinance that year banning sand mining at the request of Vernon Anderson, who was mayor of Hammond then. Singleton said Anderson asked for the ordinance after a child drowned in a gravel pit left by a sand mining project. Singleton also identified a later ordinance amending the first. The amended o r d i n ance permitted sand mining operations under certain rules. Wolf was indicted last February on charges he failed to report income allegedly received from the Missouri Valley Dredging Co., a sub-contractor on construction of the Indiana "'oil Road.
