Page2--The Robesonian, Lumberton, N.C., Tuesday, March 5. H7t Brief s A Story fi'om front page A Wagnerian Soprano Injured NEW YORK (AP) - Wagnerian soprano Birgit Nilsson has suffered a dislocated shoulder und cuts and bruises in a four- foot fall from a platform at the Metropolitan Opera. The tumble came Monday as Miss Nilsson was singing Brunnhilde in the first act of Wagner's "Gotterdammerung," which is to premiere in a new production Friday night. The rehearsal continued with British soprano Rita Hunter, but it was not known whether Miss Nilsson or Miss Hunter would be on stage Friday night. Miss Nilsson told one caller to her room at the Roosevelt Hospital that she would probably be in the hospital for "at least a couple more days.... "Other than my bruises and my black and blues, I feel fine." Sharif Sirhan f s Appeal Denied correction,-'i.e., wall covering'' put up over paint, 'which will show dirt quickly. The board will also likely delay final acceptance until it irons out penalty clause difficulties with the contractor, Snead and Hatcher. The units were clue to be completed Nov. 20,1973. The contract calls for a penalty payment of $50 per day which the commission could, relieve if it saw. fit. Weather and material .-.shortages .we're reportedly factors in the delay. The new buildings were designed by Architects Snowdon and McVickers as trim, modern structures, 'brightly, colored and. well'lit. ' ' LOS ANGELES (AP) -- His appeal rejected, Sharif B ; Sirhan has been ordered to prison for six months for threatening the life of Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir. Sirhan, 40, a Palestinian refugee from Jordan, had been free on $10,000 bail while appealing the federal prison sentence ordered last July. He is the broth- er of Sirhan B. Sirhan, who was convicted of murder in the assassination of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy in 1968. U.S. District Court Judge Lawrence T. Lydick revoked bail Monday after the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco rejected the appeal. The term will begin next Monday. · · -· ' . .

Campus Security officers arrived, but no arrests were made. The crowd of observers then made their way back to the dormitory complex, only to turn hack around later and move back to the baseball field. It was at this time that five students streaked around the business administration building and ran away. Pembroke's first streaking event, Thursday, had erupted into what was termed a "peaceful demonstration." Students met at that time with Chancellor . English E. Jones and Dean of Student Affairs James B. Chavis. Administration officials at the university said students had some concerns about dormitory regulations. It was speculated by at least one student that the grievances referred to were concerning visitation rights. Visitation rights for women students began yesterday in the lounges of men's dormitories. However, this date for the beginning of visitation had been set before the recent protest, and did not appear to come about as a result of the protests. Eight Cases Calendared ¥7* f*** ' ···! /^* M.

His first garage location was on the south side of West 5th Street adjoining The Robesonian office. Later he built across the street where his business, Norment Motor Company, was the local Ford agency. This building has since been torn down and the lot has-become one of the city's municipal parking lots. He owned other real estate in and around Lumberton. At the time, of his death Norment owned the Proctor Law Office building and the surrounding lot.

B Story from front page B mission meeting Monday and said several bills involving property liens of nonpayment of bills were pending in the General Assembly. · On the subject of legislation, County Manager Paul Graham said that -a bill introduced by Sen. Luther Britt Jr. to permit computation of_ Lumberton jspeciai'/schbol tax" (5fr"a '50 'per cent tax ratio.rather than 100 per cent'will cause difficulties'ih'the tax billingy department. The bill serves to hold the school tax at its intended Jevel rather than double it r; when the statewide ratio goes to' 100 per cent this year. · Graham said double billing would be' necessary because other taxes will be collected on the 100 per cent ratio basis. Britt has said he will consult with the attorney general and perhaps alter the legislation to enable easier billing. The commissioners advanced Robeson Technical Institute $50,000 to carry them until grant money comes in to help settle building contracts. ALTERATION The board okayed slight alteration in the floor plan of the proposed new county courthouse, changes requested by representatives of the court system and bar association. The solicitor's office was moved to the superior court floor and the register of deeds will occupy the basement and first floor rather than first and second. About 1,500 square feet on the fourth floor will remain unfinished for the time being, possibly to be rented later to an appropriate agency. The county's contract with the _architects, Lee and Thompson, will be such that payment will be due only for work completed should the county decide not to build a new courthouse. But, as arL-hitectural fees go, about 80 per cent of the contract price will be due with drawing of final blueprints, the other 20 per cent being s u p e r v i s i o n of construction. CONSORTIUM The board approved forming a consortium of Robeson, Bladen, Hoke and Scotland Counties to request prime sponsorship of manpower programs in the area if Robeson cannot obtain sponsorship by itself. Manpower revenue sharing is due to take effect this spring and the prime sponsors will decide how funds are to be spent. County Attorney Joe "Pete" Ward was named welfare und tax attorney for the county to replace Joe Freeman Britt who was recently appointed district solicitor. The job carries a $6,000 salary and the uttorney serves at Ihc pleasure of the board. The board set April 1 at 2 p.m. as the time it will convene the Board of Equalization and "Review, the body designed to correct tax inequities.

Ward told the commissioners that' "the first thing everyone I contact wants to know is how much rent will we pay." Commissioner Bobby Dean Locklear of the Red Springs district said two landowners in his area want $300 per year. The containers are for large items of trash and will be distributed on a basis of two per commission district. A thirteenth container will be used by the collection service which will carry a full fain to the landfill and put the empty in its place. Each site for these extra-large containers must be built up with a foundation and access ramp enabling easy reach of the open top.'-It is estimated that final costs will run around $7,500 per site of $90,000. Another clause in the leasing agreements will be that once the lease expires, the county will remove the dock from the site at its own expense or the landowner can keep it if he chooses. Ninety four-yard containers for small items · of household garbage have been set in place around Robeson and another 41 were expected to arrive at the Robeson County Health Department on Monday. That system is already experiencing some problems. According to Environmental Health Director Ed Wilkins, questioned after he appeared at Monday's commission meeting to request additional manpower, 17 of 35 small bins set in place on P'riday are already full. A portion arc overflowing. The health 'department has been receiving calls from citizens to this effect. Two alternatives to an inadequate system is to permit Sanitation Service Inc. to make two pickups a week instead of one or to buy more containers. Health department workers are dividing their time between placing and checking containers and the commission granted Wilkins permission to hire a sanitarian aide to work strictly with solid waste disposal. Four-yard containers have so far been placed in the townships of Maxton, Pembroke, Alfordsville, Wisharts, Britts, Smyrna, Lumberton, East and West Howellsville and Back Swamp. larceny {two counts), three years suspended three years on porbation on costs.
