Longtime Monticello Resident Succumbs MONTIOEL-LO—Mrs. Millie May Abersoll, a resident of Monticello of 37 years, died at 9 a.m. Tuesday at the White County Hospital. She was 83. She had beer, bedfast since April. Mrs. Abersoll was born Xov. 6, 1874, in Iowa. Her parenls were James De Moss and Elizabeth 0'- Neil DaMoss. She was married on Feb. 9, 1893 to A. E. AbersoU, who died in 1956. She attended the Christian church in Monticello. She had been living with a daughter, Mrs. Velda Jenkins on route 2, Monticello. Other survivors include two other daughters, Mrs. Pearl Clark measurements in the United States. Snyder said the one "major breakthrough" reported at the five.-day meeting was an unprecedented set of photographs of the sun taken from balloons at a height of 80,000 feet. Wins Cleveland Prize The report won the Newcomb Cleveland prize for the best scientific paper. It was submitted by Martin Schwarzschild and J.B. Rogerson Jr. of Princeton University, and J.W. Evans of the Sacramento Peak Observatory. The pictures were the first taken without clouding effects of the earth's atmosphere. They should "open up a whole new set of ideas as to what happens to bubbling gases on the sun," Snyder said. Other papers told of the need for training more scientists and supporting research. Dr. Herbert E. Longenecker of the University of Illinois said besides training more scientists the nation should not overlook the need of the general public for a greater understanding of "science, its people, and its truths." Two Rochester Officials Quit EO CHESTER — Two city officials resigned Monday night at a special meeting of the city coun- and replacements were made immediately Jafferson. by Mayor William Doubts Ike Will Resign GETTYSBURG, Pa. .UP)—Pros- Jllc ul=iml „„„,,., „„„ _„ _ idcnt Eisenhower lias no intention I j] re clljer Braman will stay with William Deniston quit his post as city attorney and Emerson Braman resigned as fire chief. No reasons were given for the resignations. Mayor Jefferson named John J. Delworth as successor to Deniston. Delworlh has had a private law practice here for a short time. John Richards, a memBef'oT'Blo fire department, was appointed of resigning. He doesn't even think in such terms these days. He sees no reason why he should resign. As far as his physical condition is concerned he feels more than adequate for the job. His doctors concur in this confidence today, Eisenhower does not regard himself as a "part-time president" any more than the late President Franklin D. Roosevelt regarded himself as part-time because of iiis frequent weekends in Hyde Park, N.Y., or former President Truman and his fondness for week ends on the White House yacht or long holidays in Key West, Fla. Such is the basic philosophy of the current Chief Executive as he is pelted, largely by Democrats and to a lesser degree by members of his own party, for not stepping out of office because of recurrent illnesses and frequent the department as a regular fireman. Mayor Jefferson indicated that a successor to Ben Mullican, city park superintendent who died Sunday, will be named in the near future.. The special meeting of the council was called to wind up city business for 1957. 30 Boys Take Part- In Checkers Tourney At Logan YMCA The YMCA completed its series of holiday tournaments Monday afternoon when 30 boys took part in a checkers contest.

Tobogganing Party Ends In Tragedy IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. (UP) Logar.sport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune Fifteen Cass Marriages Drop Despite Big December De-spite the fact that the num ber of marriage licenses issued at the county clerk's office in December was almost fifty percent above normal, there was a slight decline in marriages this year in Casr county compared will) 1956. At the same time there was a still greater decline in the number of divorce suits filed, according to the annual report of County Clerk Elizabeth Bicker. The 417 marriage licenses issued in 1957 is just three less than were issued in 1956, but the 179 divorce suits filed in the past year represent a decline of 16 from the 195 in 1956. This continues a slight but sleady decline already evident in the previous year since there were 2OT divorce suits filed in 1955. Only 374 n-.arriage licenses were issued in 1955. June, August and December were Hie big months for marriage licenses this year. County Clerk Bieker attributed at least part of the increase in marriage licenses in December this year to couples obtaining their licenses early to evade the new marriage law which goes into effect the first of January. There were 43 marriage licenses issued this December cow- pared with 33 in the same month of 1956. The big mor.ths for divorce suits were March and May, with 22 apiece.

Quill's Transport Workers Union ended today its threat of a New Year's Eve subway and bus strike by accepting a 32',i cent-an-hour contract package designed to head off transit-labor trouble for at least two years. The agreement will cost the city an estimated $29,250,000. The settlement was announced early this morning after more than seven hours of negotiations at City Hall. Mayor Robert F. Wagner had called in an eight man citizens committee of business leaders and labor officials to break a deadlock between the AFL-CIO union and the City Transit Authority. Transit Authority Chairman Charles Patterson said the agreement would not result in a subway or bus fare increase this year because the authority has $24,300,000 set aside to help cover the package increase. But he said he could give no assurance that the fare could be held down to 15 cents in 1959. PROF. BURKHOLDER DIES LAFAYETTE (UP) Services will be held here Thursday for Prof. Cecil L.
