Trading .sessions on the Board of Trade were rather quiet affairs except for spurts stemming from renewed tension in the cold war between Turkey and Syria, more talk about the possible resignation of Secretary of Agriculture Benson and some government moves that were regarded as inflationary. At the close of trading Friday wheat was 1% to 1% lower, corn Va, to 1% down, oats were unchanged to 1 cent off, rye was 1 to VA lower, soybeans were off 2Vs to 3% cents and .lard losses ranged from 40 to 43 cents a hundred pounds. Trading incentives considered inflationary by grainmen included reports that President Eisenhower planned to ask Congress to boost the national debt limit and his proposal to increase defense spending substantially to neutralize Russia's satellites. Another government move with inflationary aspects came late "in the week when the Federal Reserve Board announced a cut in its discount rate to federal reserve banks in the East, South and Midwest. The government's monthly re-1-' port on corn and soybean production came out Tuesday but contained no surprises since it was Virginia Gibson Gets A Break in "Hit Parade" drink with the onion in it) now has that opportunity.

Gun Victim Rites Set For Monday Funeral services for Marvin Gibson served a nine-month sentence with "Happy Hunting," a musical that starred Ethel Merman.

"In Hollywood, it was the same sort of thing—sweet young girls, sweet girl friends, sweet wives, most of them musicals. I did get Stewart, county coroner. The furloughed Pennsy fireman passed away at 7:22 p.m. Friday at Memorial hospital about two and one-half hours after he was found shot in a bedroom at his Carroll county home, 5V4 miles to play a dramatic role with j southwest of here. He was 26. Joan Crawford in 'Goodbye My Fancy,'—as a sweet co-ed. "Then on TV, the same thing. I did a 'Lux Video Theatre' and played a sweet ingenue type," Miss Gibson recalled with some despair, "And in a 'Ford Theatre' I was somebody's sweet girl friend. And maybe you remember me as Johnny Carson's nice wife when he had his TV series." Spotted By Agency Miss Gibson landed her berth on "Your Hit Parade" after some executives from B.B.D.&O., an ad agency, spotted her in the Merman show. "They called me up last February and asked me to audition," Miss Gibson recalled, "and they told me they wanted me. Well, Miss Merman had a contract with the producer of 'Happy Hunting' that said all the members of the cast had to remain with the show for the run of the play. "But Miss Merman was very nice about it when I asked for my release. I told her the truth —that I felt I 'was marking time, | singing the same songs over and i over, that I wanted the opportu- jnity to dp something different." Miss Gibson Cher real name is Despondent Over Future Watts was apparently despondent over his future. His wife, Willa Jo, left him about a week ago and went to her parents ,at Monor: with the 2-year-old daughter. The victim also had received his last unemployment compensation check. Watts was furloughed from the railroad last May. He came here from Goodland about four years ago. Authorities found a note which Watts had left, stating that he .was unable to live without his wife, that life was too lonely without her. The message was addressed to Mrs. Watts. A previous attempt to take his life by carbon monoxide was reported. Watts had been living or: the Louis Rice farm where be had been serving as a farm hand. Rice told officers that be started taking care of the farm stock Thursday after Watts became ill; It was believed his sickness stemmed from the attempt to end his life from carbon monoxide fumes from his car engine. Rice went to the house at 5 p.m. Friday and found Watts in critical condition from the gun wounds to his head. Bernard Leavitt, state detective, and Larry Wagenknecbt, state trooper, who worked on the case several hours, confirmed the suicide theory. Uied .ZZ Automatic The shooting was ^with a .J2 automatic pistol which was lying by the victim. It was new-and apparently only recently purchased. The shot struck him in the right temple. Relatives were contacted and the victim's father, Raymond Watts, of Goodland, came here. Also arriving were his wife's father, Russell Abbott of Monon, and her brother, Gene Abbott, <of Monticeilo. Watts' driving license, issued a year ago, shows his address then a 708 High street in Logansport. 4 Living, 6 Dead In Plane Mishap ANCHORAGE, Alaska (IK—Four crewmen were found alive and six dead Saturday in the wreckage of an Air Force B29 that crashed into an Alaska mountainside during a snowstorm Friday night.
