THE SUNDAY LOGANSPORT PRESS THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PRICE TEN CENTS ALL PHONES 4141 AfUR ONE YEAR ~ How Do You Like One-way Streets? At 6 p.m., Monday, Nov. 5, 1956, about a.year ago, a new era began in Logansport's traffic history. It was then that one-way streets became a part of the Logansport scene. Remember that memorable evening? It seemed everyone and his brother wer e out testing the new system. Broadway was a cloud of dust from the fine stone and tar put on the street to seal cracks. The newness soon wore off and the one-way streets became a part of-everyday life. Are one-way streets better than the old two-way streets? ' As sort of a first anniversary celebration, we asked The man on the street" his opinion, of one-way streets the question: "What is your opinion of the- one-way streets and do you feel that it is harder to find a place to park? Here are the responses: JAMES VENICE, 3117 Summit—One-way streets are okay if people will keep in one lane of traffic and obey the law. I have no trouble parking. GRETTY UBERTA, Indianapolis—A one-way system is fine for a small town. I think a set pattern should be followed by all cities because it is a bit confusing to a stranger in town when he doesn t know what is one-way and what is not. JOSEPH LOMBARDI, 1126 Erie-I like the new system much better than the old. Finding a parking space is no harder now than •before BROSEY WILFRED, 1718 Broadway—While I know the one-way system gets traffic through the city much faster, I have one complaint We have those big trucks running past our house and it is disturbing when you are trying to get some sleep. _ Mrs F ROSE 817 Spear~I think the streets are wonderful but i don't drive down town very much as we live so near the business dlSl K t O.

MOSCOW M — The Communist party has ejected Marshal Georgi K. Zhukov from its Central Committee and ruling Presidium' because, it charged Saturday night, he tried to eliminate party control over the armed forces. This demonstrated "insufficient party spirit" and "rudely violated the Leninist party principle for direction of the armed forces." "The Central Committee has established that the cult of comrade Zhukov's personality was cultivated in the'Soviet army with his -I have one complaint.

The formal announcement said the resolution condemning Zhukov had been "adopted unanimously" by members and candidate members of the Central Committee. The resolution said Zhukov's conceit caused him to consider himself "a single hero of all victories achieved by our people and heir armed forces under the lead- rship of the Communist party." It followed up the charge that .e violated the Leninist principle or party control of the armed orces by saying: Didn't Fulfill Trust "Because of this Zhukov did not ulfill the trust placed in him by h e party. He turned out .to be a politically bankrupt representative vith a tendency to adventurism in lis understanding and evaluation the most important problems of foreign policy in' the Soviet Union as well as his direction of the Ministry of Defense." The commuraque said the party Central Committee' met late in October and discussed the "improvement of party and political work in the Soviet army and navy." Then it added: "Th e plenary meeting has excluded Georgi K.

Eisert said 20 gallons of foamite is required to make the 2,000 gallons of foam from the 600-gallon water tank. Those operations are made by working valves on the control panel of the truck. ' Chief Eisert explained that foam is used to fight, grease, oil, and gas fires. . The new truck is also equipped wifch a three-way radio.

Special Judge' Walter Pritchard who set sentencing for 9:30 a.m. Friday, is technically not required to follow the jury's recommendations, > Show No "Emotion Smith, and Peak showed no emotion as the verdict was read at 3:50 a.m. after the jury had spent little more than five hours in actual deliberations. After hearing the verdict, Peak walked slowly back to his' wife and sister, who wept as he embraced them. Smith arose and' walked soowly about, none of his family there. Usually jovial during the trial, in which he was the central figure, Smith was asked how he felt. "No different than I did before," he said soberly. ' Teverbaugh and Doggett embraced each other. In tears anc scarcely c o herent,' Teverbaugh embraced his wife, shook hands with the judge and each juror and told Prosecutor John G. Tinder "No hard feelings." ; ' "Iha've been-hurt,"- Teverbaugh told the jurors, "but I always had confidence in our form of govern ment.' Wife Happy Tears welled in Mrs. Doggett's eyes at the -acquittal. Her hus band smiled-but said, "1 still hav another indictment hanging ove me." He is charged with grand arceny in'the same two backlot deals involved in the first trial. William Dismore, jury foreman, aid the jury finally decided "the state didn't prove their cases against Teverbaugh and Doggett —we had too much doubt." Teverbaugh, the only defendant .0 testify, had tgld the jury he bought the backlots near the Madison Avenue Expressway route 'or $2,500 as an investment for lis grandson, Kerry Dean Burton. Testimony during the four-week trial indicated Teverbaugh sold the lots for $3,000 through Smith to Peak's aged parents. Later the lots were sold to the state for $25,800, but Peak refunded $22,800 after the highway scandal broke in newspapers last spring. Some jurors said they thought Teverbaugh's explanation for buying the backlots was "plausible," . First'Vote To Convict Jurors reported that the first ballot went 9-3 to convict Teverbaugh.
