LOGANSPORT PUBLIC LIBRARY Fourteen Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Trfbtm* Mild Weather Forecast for Eastern U. S. By UNITED PRESS Chances for a white Christmas all but faded across the eastern half of the nation today with the advent of a southerly air flow that brought spring - like readings throughout the' region. Only the far West experienced seasonal weather with cold air and snow overspreading much of the central and northern Rockies and the Great Basin area Sunday and today. The colder air was borne on gusty winds Sunday that reached up to 58 miles an hour at Tatoosh Island off Washington, and hit 45 m.p.h. across Montana into Idaho. Rain or snow accompanied the high winds from northeast Nevada into Utah. Temperatures tumbled into the 80s in some sections o£ southern California and dropped to a low of 3 early today at Evanston, Wyo. In the Midwest and East, residents doffed their topcoats as the mercury jumped to a record- matching high of 57 in Chicago Sunday. The record for the date was set in 1875. Elsewhere, readings ranged from the un-wintry 40s and 50s from the Dakotas east to New England and in the 60s from the central Plains to the mid-Atlantic states. Despite showers Sunday, flood conditions eased in Oregon, j Twenty-two persons were evacu-1 ated from farms along lowlands; hear the Coquille River in the J Western part of the state where floodwaters stood nine feet deep. Klsewhere in the area, floodwaters receded and no new flooding was expected. Manion Says Failure Of Rocket Made U. S; World Laughing Stock SOUTH BEND (UP)—The former dean of the University of Notre Dame law school has charged that failure to launch the satellite "Vanguard" made the U.S. the "laughing stock of the world." At the same time, Clarence Manion said "Communist prestige has risen from the floor and soared into outer space." In a radio address Sunday night, Manion Said chances were the Soviets' "legally unrestrained conspiratorial agents in this country" had more to do with America's missile humiliation than anyone else. Manion also criticized the administration for "deliberately" refusing to capitalize on Communism's "all-time low" in 1956 when the Kremlin crushed the Hungarian revolt. "Only a very feeble exponent o£ the capitalistic system would have refused to capitalize upon its competitor's all-time low point in prestige," Manion said, "especially when the ruthlessness of the competition involves the life or death of one or the other of the competitors." Hint Jenner May Run For Governor's Seat • .' INDIANAPOLIS (LT) — Sen. William E. Jenner CR-Ind.) has indicated his announced retirement does' not mean his political career is at an end. In a copyright Interview with .the Indianapolis Times, Jenner side-stepped whether he will run for governor, a post he once said he has always desired, in 1960. • "All I have said is that I'm not going to run for the Senate next year," the Times quoted Jenner. He said Governor Handiey can have the U.S. Senate nomination next spring "if he wants it." "If he wants a political career,"! said Jenner, "this is the ideal way." Kandley indicated last week he has reached the crossroads in Hoosier politics—he can step up, meaning the Senatorial nomination—or retire. An Indiana governor cannot succeed himself. Social Drinker Major Problem Over Holidays CHICAGO ('UP) - Social drinkers and middle of the roaders are the chief highway killers during the Christmas holidays, a National Safety Council survey revealed today. The survey showed that social drinkers—responsible for 30 per cent of traffic fatalities during off- holiday periods—are the cause of 55 per cent of the Christmas fatalities. Almost four out of five victims were men, the survey showed, and these were mostly drivers. Most common driver action that warnin §. followed up with a mes- proved fatal was driving on the sa S e °f hope. Traffic deaths de- wrong side of the road or in the creased 3 per cent in the first middle of the road.

Jim White Fire Insurance Ph. 2491 Midwest Farm Increased by Two Per Cent CHICAGO (UP)^Midwest farm income increased about 2 per cent in the first nine months oE 1957 over a year ago with Tanners producing ' record amounts of grain sorghums, soybeans and turkeys. In addition a five-year drought ended in some areas with spring rains which delayed planting but produced high yields for most crops. The statistics were contained in a report issued Saturday by the Agricultural Marketing Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, The service said the corn crop in 12 midwestern states was estimated at 2,745,000 bushels, about 35 million bushels larger than in 1956, ,but from an acreage 3 per cent smaller. The midwestern soybean crop was the largest in history—but overshadowed by a phenomenal increase in grain sorghums, which totaled 255 million bushels in seven states compared with 48 million in 1956. The AMS said farmers planted customary wheat lands to sorghum because of dry soil in the fall of 1956. In addition, many Iowa and Missouri farmers planted sorghums instead of corn because of lower acreage allotments and the late plariting season. Livestock prices generally were higher, with fewer cattle and hogs raised and sold, the AMS said. Egg prices were eytremely low during the first six months of the year, but increased as farmers reduced their laying flocks, the service said. Midwestern farmers raised more turkeys in the 1957 than ever before, but the birds sold at the lowest prices in several years, the service added.

('UP) A 32-year-old girl who thought the 29-cent ring she got at a school Christmas party looked "too real" has returned Mrs. J.T. Hensley's diamond engagemen'. ring. Young Diana Smith was sure the ring, "worth several hundred dollars," was the one lost by Mrs. Hensley while shopping in a variety store here Friday. The Hartford, 111., woman slipped off the engagement ring and wedding band while looking at costume jewelry for her 11-year-old daughter. She left the rings on the counter, and returned a few minute'; later to find the wedding band safe but the diamond ring sold by a clerk for 29 cents. Lloyd Antoine bought the ring and gave it to Diana. The girl finally persuaded her parents to telephone Mrs. Hensley. "That's woman's intuition for you." said the girl's father, Victor Smith, as Diana tucked away the $10 reward. In Memory of Charles E. Smith,' who passed away 2 years ago, Dec. 21.
