Famed Depository Building for Sale HOME DESTROYED—A Corsicana fireman works his way around the flaming debris that was the home of Mrs. W. P. Portwood, at 2412 W. 13th Ave. She was a way from home when the fire started about 10:30 p.m. Monday. Flames had a good start when fire fighters arrived, and only one room of the frame house was left standing when the fire was tapped out. (Sun Staff Photo) DALLAS (AP) — The Texas School Book Depository Building goes on the auction block April 16. The drab, seven-story building that entered American history the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, will go to the highest bidder at the Northpark Inn in Dallas. The Warren Commission report found Lee Harvey Oswald was the one who fired three shots at the back of Kennedy’s head as he rode in a motorcade on Nov. 22, 1963. The Report found the shots were fired from the sixth floor corner window of the 62-year-old structure. Six years haven’t changed the appearance of the solid, tan brick building except for the addition of a black and white sign lettered on the glass front door reading: “No admittance except on official business.” O. V. Campbell, the vice president of the depository, which is a private warehouse with no official ties to the State of Texas, said curiosity on the part of visitors and local residents prompted the posting of the sign. “For three months after the assassination, we had a guard at the door to discourage visitors,” said Campbell. “We’re trying to conduct a business here.” On any weekend, even now, dozens of persons can be observed strolling about Dealey Plaza outside, pointing up at the corner window. Inside, the sixth floor now is vacant, except for a few empty book cartons near the elevator. The cracked, white-brick window ledge at the southeast corner is only a foot from the floor. When the Venetian blinds are pulled up and the tall, creaking window is raised, a clear panorama of the plaza below is revealed. The building is owned by the Dallas Trust Corp. The majority stockholder of the firm, Col. D. Harold Byrd, 69, has decided to liquidate some of his holdings. The Texas School Book Depository has built a new warehouse outside Dallas and their lease on the building is about to expire. The auction is open to the public and auctioneer G. C. Walters, who will conduct the bidding, says no stipulations have been put on possible buyers as to what may be done with the building. Walters said some have suggested turning the building into a shrine in honor of the memory of the President. Another informal proposal has been made to convert it into a John F. Kennedy Memorial Day Care Center. It’s just possible the new owner will choose to raze the structure, Watch your Money GROW OPEN A SAVINGS ACCOUNT TODAY AT Coreicana National Bank MEMBER F.D.I.C. ARLON SIMMONS WILL APPRECIATE YOUR VOTE AND INFLUENCE FOR COUNTY COMMISSIONER PRECINCT NO. 2 SATURDAY MAY 2nd A VOTE FOR ARLON SIMMONS IS A VOTE FOR EXPERIENCED MANAGEMENT OF YOUR TAX DOLLAR. PAID POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT, BY ARLON SIMMONS Campaigning In Full Swing Is By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS nil spoke out vigorously but no two of the major party candidates for U.S. Senator in Texas dwelt on the same issues in campaigning Monday. Sen. Ralph Yarborough, bidding for another term, accused his Democratic primary opponent, Lloyd Bentsen of Houston, of spending millions “in a brazen way to buy a seat in the United States Senate.” Bentsen, in turn, declared that “the incumbent senator is out of step with the opinions and aspirations of the majority of Texans.” On the Republican side, Rep. George Bush of Houston called for support of legislation sought by President Nixon to combat crime. Robert Morris of Dallas, opposing Bush for the GOP nomination, put in a plug for confirmation of Nixon’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge G. Harrold Carswell, and for relaxation of tight credit policy. Yarborough declared in a speech opening his San Antonio headquarters, “We see in Texas a billboard blitz, TV telethons, radio roundelays and a greenback carpet in the Rio Grande Valley, all spread by my opponent. “I do not believe the people of Texas will let these supermil­ lionaires buy a Senate seat from i I I l I l I I I I I I I l i I i I I i IT’S DIVIDEND TIME! THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE DIVIDENDS PAID AT THE CORSICANA FEDERAL: the people, the way these super- : millionaires buy ranches and : yachts. They look at a Senate seat j as something else they will buy j for their trophy rooms—they : have no concept of earning it by j service to the people.” j Yarborough’s announced : schedule called for him to be in : Washington the next three days. Bentsen, in Houston, asserted, “The silent American, the person who is fed up with the trends in this country that are undermining our most important values, traditions and institutions quite certain that the incumbent senator is out of step with the opinions and aspirations of the majority of Texas. “The silent American ... is concerned about permissiveness and about the breakdown in law and order. He thinks his leaders should place a higher priority on stopping this rapid rise in crime, juvenile delinquency and use of narcotics.” Bentsen’s itinerary called for him to follow Yarborough into San Antonio today. Bush appeared at a legislative seminar in New Braufels, where he said Congress has “an obligation to the American people to approve President Nixon’s legislation that would give the attorney general more tools to fight organized crime and the narcotics traffic .... “As organized crime is curbed, so also will violent street crime be reduced and our people will be safer on the streets and in their homes.” Bush was staying in Houston today to work on preparing taped television shows. Speaking to supporters at Midland and Odessa, Morris said he had sent a telegram urging Bush “to join in offering support to President Nixon’s choice of Judge Carswell in a view that the Supreme Court badly needs a strict constructionist.” Iimmimmiiiiiiimmiiimimiiiimimmii SATISFACTION FINEST QUALITY-HONEST VALUE is Jmtimial - auotfäk uoieC , li, tee 'teme MULTIPLY YOUR SAVINGS BY DEPOSITING j YOUR MONEY AT THE CORSICANA FEDERAL! \ MONEY DEPOSITED BY THE j 10TH EARNS FROM THE 1ST: \ 30doy TRIAL on your bed 8Auc ¿»UON/Tii.! •Custom Comfort! zed / © Cotton Felt Quilted ® Cottonette More Felt 8[s\® Uniflex Pad ® Zone Permalator @ Stabilizer Edges @Convolutionary Coils • Registered developed it, i perfected it and j made it a reality! j jjcti can't buy j a better set... why pay more?; Special €?fer Regular Price *139 j O.d Bedding 30 I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I 1.3 PASSBOOK SAVINGS t MONTH MINIMUM OF SI,000 5% 5 % % ONE YEAR MINIMUM OF $1,000 TWO TO TEN YEARS MINIMUM OF $5,000 53/4% 6% ONE OR MORE YEARS $100,000 ON DEPOSIT 7 Vi % CORSICANA FEDERAL SAVINGS AND LOAN ASSOCIATION 109 N.
