Damage Suit Asks $26,000 An auto accident on Aug. 16, last year, on state road 25, a mile southwest of Logansport, is the basis of a $26,000 damage suit filed • Monday, in the Cass circuit court by Joseph Zuckerberg of Fort Wayne against Miss Mary Maris, city. The first -paragraph of the complaint asks $25,000 for loss of earnings and • injuries sustained by the plaintiff when he allegedly drove his car down a 12 foot embankment and wrecked and accept young financial wizard Felix Gaillard as premier, political experts predicted today. Gaillard, .leader of the Radical Socialist Party, won support of every other major French party cept the Communists and extreme rightwing Poujadists over the weekend. He planned to present to the 596- member National Assembly Tuesday — his 38th birthday — a relatively small "unity" cabinet of about 25 members representing the wide middle of the French political spectrum. For the first time in six years the Left Wing Socialists of Guy Mollet and the Rightwing Independents (Conservatives) ,oi: Antoine Pinay agreed to work together in the government. But the agreement, sonrwwhat like an armed truce, could blow •up if Gaillard makes a misstep in assigning cabinet jobs taiay. One socialist said the new government would not last through the A s mbl vote after it gets in anyway. Dial Telephone Marks Birthday —It's 65th Year Sunday ntanked the SSth anniversary of the automatic telephone. The first automatic telephone system was one of mankind's first practical applications of remote :ontrol. The little undertaker who invented the system, Almon Brown Strowger, had set out to devise an electro-mechanical machine which could perform certain functions better than a human being. The idea was shocking in 1892, but Strowger did much to blaze the automation trail. Today, new applications of automatic electrical control are growing at an astounding rate of more than 100 per cent per year. Strowger had forseen that manual operator switching could never provide telephone service of the magnitude which we know today. He was 'irritated at the inefficiencies of the operator system and worked on the problem' until he solved it with an automatic switching system. On Nov. 3 1892 Str-ow- ber unveiled his automatic telephone system in LaiPorte, Indiana. The first automatic telephone employed push-buttons, but' worked on the same switching system as today's dial telephones.- Four years alter the LaPorte installation, the company which Strowger founded, Automatic Electric, man. ufachiring -component of the Gen. 'era! Telephone System, introduced tire world's first finger wheel dial. In the United States, much of the credit for the success of automatic - telephony must go to the uidepen- new government is the fifth :he crisis started Sept. 30. Mollet tried twice and Pinay and Resistance Party, leader Rene Pleven each tried once. None could drum up the necessary support among the center oarties to form a' dent. <«"•*£> Companies such as Sets Townsend Writ Hearing On Dec. 2 The November term of the Cass circuit court opened Monday with the usual flurry of activity which marks the first day of every court term.
