The official list of detours issued by the Indiana State Highway Commission included: Ind. 3—Closed from Ind. 38 to U.S. 36 in Henry County.

(UPD- Farnwr Ed Moorman and animal fancier Everet Wedmeyer spent hursday night in a barn adjacent to a lot containing 55 prime hogs wailing for the vicious marauder that has killed at least 12 pigs, but it didn't show up. Armed with 12-gauge shotguns loaded with shells containing .00 shot, the two men were waiting for just what, no one knew. Wedmeyer, who has hunted big game and just recently donated a pet bear to the' Indiana Conservation Department for an exhibit at the state fair, thinks the animal, which eats just the hearts and livers and drinks the blood of the hogs, is an African lioness. Other theories were that it was a mountain lion of the type prevalent in Western states. Sheriff Harry K. Walter limited the number of men on stake-out to two in order to keep them from getting in each other's way. The two men expected ,the animal to appear Thursday night since it has not eaten, since early Monday morning, at which time it killed two 100-pourid pigs. So far the Moorman farm, R.R. 7, Huntington,-has been the only place the beast put in an appearance. Wedmeyer said if the animal did not show up, it was likely that Moorman wounded it with a chance shot Monday and killed it, or that it was driven away. Moorman said he was afraid of the beast, not for 'himself, but for his three children aged 6, 5 and 4 years old. ties. Detour 24 miles over 53, 110, 10 and 55, adds 14 miles. '.

(Staff Photo) Legal Tussle Over Soblen TEL AVIV, Israel (UPI) — American efforts to obtain the immediate return of convicted Soviet spy.Dr. : Robert A. Soblen ran into a snag today. The Israeli government announced that Soblen would not be expelled today for; entering this cpuntry on . a forged Canadian passport after fleeing the United States. The delay could open a prolonged legal tussle over Sob- len's future, since there is no extradition treaty between the Unit. ed States and Israel. Government information officer David Landor disclosed the decision to hold off on Soblen's ouster in the wake of apparently feverish efforts by some Israeli officials to get him out of the country before he becomes an embarrassment to the government. Earlier, .informed socrces ' had said Soblen's departure today was "likely": and might be only "a matter of hours away." However, a single direct Israeli El Al Airlines' flight direct to New York left here without Soblen. Interior Minister Moise Shapiro has submitted the expulsion question to the entire Israeli cabinet for a decision. Informed sources said this was a diversionary move to prevent delaying legal tactics on Soblen's behalf. Now You Know The Julian calendar, instituted by Julius Caesar in 46 B.

"It «s average 35 bushels in he last and I knew it was bettor han average this year, so I ex- liid! it to make around 40," he said. His "reaction was typical. Wlwn Arthur Scott, Jackson .ownsidp farmer, found one of his 'ieids of wheat was making 59 3ushels per acre, he told the 3ahle.i grain elevator at Calves- on that he wouldn't tell anyone secauie no one would believe it could be that high. His wheat had made 54 bushels per acre last year in an exceptionally good yield. Another of his fields average: 1 55 bushels this year. TIM; TOP YIELD reported thus far was by Victor Btwmann in Washington township. When he took MS wheat to the Eighteenth Street elevator here he reported a sm.ill field had yielded between 64 ami' C5 bushels per acre. -Thi! north elevator reported its first u'heat came from Noble and Jefferson township farms. Three farmiirs of Tipton and Deer Creek townships, who drove their truck:; loaded with the golden grain to the Lincoln elevator Friday, reported yields of 55 to 80 bushels. The Lincoln elevator operator reported that one thing that was helping nrake this a bumper crop was tlie fact that the wheat was weighing heavy, 60 pounds to the bushel, making it No. 1 wheat. A weight of 58 pounds to the bushel is more common in other years, he indicated. SEVERAL GRAIN elevators reported, that the surprising thing about the heavy wheat yield is that many farmers expected it to be lower this year because in a number of spots it appeared to have been frozen out during the winter. The moisture was running 13 to 14 per cent, which is what it should be at this time of the year.
