Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune MIAMI COUNTY 'Cannonbair Now Contented Farmer PERU, Ind. (UP!) - William Wiedrich Wilno has been a farmer the last five years, but the 58- year-old German native still revels in the memories of the 30 years he lived as "The Great Wilno, the Human Cannonball." Nowadays he blends into the Miami County agricultural area just like any other dyed-in - the- wool Hoosier farmer. There's nothing about his appearance which gives a hint that he made 14,400 flights from the barrel of a cannon into a net 200 feet away, a total distance of about 550 miles. Battered and burned in a few accidents which marred his circus days, Wilno retired in 1957 to the safety of the countryside in the .area around Peru, known as the "Circus City" because circuses wintered here in their lush year. Wilno wa§ born in Dresden in 1903. He learned watchmaking but joined a circus when he failed to find a job at his trade. He performed in flying trapeze acts until 1928 when he perfected a cannonball show of his own and premiered with a circus tour of Vote Sunday In Algeria For Freedom ALGIERS (UPI) - French •rule of Algeria is in its last days. Algerians will vote Sunday in a referendum that will make the North African territory an independent nation after 132 years under the banner of France. If the highest hopes are realized, the voting will ring down the curtain on 7 l /i years of conflict which has bled France's economy of more than $15 billion and taken the lives of nearly 40C,- 000 persons. But if the Secret Army Organization (OAS) refuses to !cease its killing and bombing, the Wood-letting may go on for days, •weeks or even months. : With independence 'at hand, Algeria faces these questions: • Will the OAS join in the peaceful building of a new Algeria ; Or will the diehards fight on in a last-ditch struggle that could lurn the country 'into another Congo? Expected To Abstain Most of Algeria's Europeans, who numbered about one million before the recent mass exodus, are expected to abstain from the referendum that revolves around this question: "Do you want independence and continued cooperation with France?" But the great majority of the territory's nine million Moslems are considered certain to vote "yes." Still unknown is exactly what kind of government will eventually come into being in the new Algeria. The French hope it will continue to cooperate closely with France and look more to the West than to the Communist world. But experts believe it will be a "neutralist" regime like Mo- locco, Tunisia and the United Arab Republic with considerable ties to the Communist bloc as well as to the West. Looms As Strongman Mohammed Ben Bella, whose release from more than five years of French captivity was one of the Evian agreements agreements which led to the referendum, is expected to become the prime minister and "strong man" of the new government. The present premier of the gov. ernment - in - exile, Ben Youseff Khedda, probably will be steered into the largely honorary job of president. As soon as the'result of Sunday's voting is announced — possibly by late Monday — French rule here will cease. Sovereignty iand responsibility for law and order is to be handed over to the mixed Moslem - European provisional executive which has headquarters presently at Rocher Noir, 30 fliUes east of Algiers.

A booking agent signed him for a 17-week performance in • the Jnited Stales, and from then tm was a major attraction all around the country. When he retired, Wilno parked he cannon to gather dust on his 90-acre farm. Two years ago he sold it to Louis Munoz, now with he Clyde Beatty - Cole Brothers Hircus. Before the sale, however, Wilno's son, Harvey, 21, a trapeze artist in his own right, 'took one last trip from cannon barrel .b net for sentimental reasons. Wilno is a key figure'in Peru's annual' Festival Circus and twice weekly he spends a night in the ligh school gymnasium coaching youngsters in the art of trapeze and aerial work. Wilno had some narrow escapes as the human cannonball. Once, due to a pressure loss in .he mechanism propelling him rom barrelto net, he fell short of his goal and wound up with a dislocated shoulder and strained muscles. Another time, Wilno was burned seriously by a powder explosion during a shot. Wilno explained that powder is< not a necessary ingredient to a cannon shot, but it provides atmosphere for the spectators. "Without a loud boom and 'lames, the act is nothing," he said. "People expect it." POETIC LICENSE ASHFORD, Conn. (OPD— Dog Warden Andrew C.

There will be company picnics, church picnics, lodge picnics and just plain family-and-friend picnics. Parking and table space will be at a premium in every picnic spot in the United Stales. With the picnics will come bruises and cuts and scratches and strains and sunburn and sore muscles the next day. These are "occupational hazards" of July 4 picnics and usually aren't serious. WHAT MIGHT be more serious will be food poisoning. The weather is, hot on July 4 and foods spoil quickly. It a few of the staphylococcic bacteria that are the most common cause of food poisoning are present, only a few hours of time, combined with warm temperature are needed to cause real trouble. Food can be handled safely on picnics in warm weather if the family chef keeps in mind a few precautions. .LEAVE THE sandwich ingredients, including bread, in the original wrappers and containers and make up your picnic sandwiches on the spot, just before mealtime. Ham spoils quickly at warm temperatures and if you favor ham sandwiches, take the ham along in a can and open it just before serving. Potato salad is another favorite picnic food. It also spoils quickly. Take the hard-boiled eggs, boiled potatoes and mayonnaise (in its sealed jar) and mix the salad-at the last minute. The picnic icebox, pro]>erly insulated, is an excellent food saver. It should have a tight lid and there should be plenty of ice. Items stored in the refrigerator should be well chilled before placing in the picnic box. BE CAREFUL about pies. Cream-filled bakery goods spoil quickly on a hot day. Take fresh fruits for dessert. Stick to can- nedVuffs and sealed jars and bottles than can be opened just lie- lore using. The July 4 picnic is one of America's great traditions, It is a time (if great fun for all. Don't overdo '!he strenuous games and sports in the July heat and safeguard your picnic foods. Don't let food poisoning spoil your outing. ASKED FOR SUSPENSION WASHINGTON (UPD- Maurice A.
