CASPER - Kids watched kids, Shriners officiated and everyone marveled at the elephants as the, rain -delayed circus parade finally got underway. Under alternately clear and cloudy skies, kids with painted faces gathered at Park and Second streets Thursday morning to take part in the traditional kick-off to the Shrine Circus in Casper a day late. Clowns aged 3 to 12, with noses and faces In the colors of the rainbow and all varieties of yarn hair and baggy clothes,' helped Shriners brighten up the downtown streets Many of the clowns got Into the Bicentennial spirit with Betsy Rosses, Minulemen and Paul Reveres adding a historical counterpoint to the more traditional circus costumes. x Some of the younger ones scheduled to take part in the parade decided at the last minute to become spectators instead of participants. They took up spots along the parade route with the other children who had gathered to watch and clapped and laughed along with the rest of the crowd. Kids on the sidewalks waved to kids marching in the streets, their expressions making It difficult to assess which group was having more fun. Bringing up the rear of the parade were the elephants, one of the biggest draws of any circus. The three docile giants drew many oohs and aahs from the young spectators and marchers, as they traveled down the city streets linked trunk to tail In the best circus fashion. The youngsters forgot even the awarding of the prizes for the best costumes for a few moments as they paused at the end of the route to watch as the elephants were loaded Into their truck for the trip back to the fairgrounds. Helms wasn't asked of plot WASHINGTON (UPI) - Richard Helms, former CIA chief, never mentioned U.S. plots to kill Cuban Premier Fidel Castro to the Warren Commission investigating President Kennedy's death because he was never asked about them, a Senate report showed Thursday. The late Allen W. Dulles, director of the CIA when the plots began and a member of the seven-man commission, might have been expected to reveal the schemes, Helms intimated to a special Senate committee. i A 106-page Senate study of Intelligence community cooperation or lack of it with the Warren Commission was published Wednesday. It revealed the commission did not explore the possibility of a "Cuban connection" between the CIA plots and Kennedy's assassination. - "Mr. Allen Dulles was a member of the ' Warren Commission and the . first assassination plot happened during his time as director," Helms told Sen. Frank Church July 18, 1975 in testimony published for the first time in the new study. "What he said to the Warren Commission about this ... I don't know. "But at least he was sitting right there, in the commission's deliberations and knew about this, and I am sure that the same thought that occurred to you must have occurred to him."

Hay your kindness be repaid if you ever need help. fefatthew, Christa, Kathy, and Harold Hfrworth Funerals 1M MS mm By United Press International New England and northern California sweltered in heat waves Thursday. Violent storms damaged harvest-ready wheat but eased the drought in some parts of the Midwest. Communities in eastern Massachusetts voluntarily restricted use of water for lawns and swimming pools as the mercury headed into the 90s for the ninth day this month. The National Weather Service, noting that "Bostonians and other eastern Massachusetts residents are sweltering," said the month is likely to go down in the records as the warmest June in Boston's weather history. Despite oppressive humidity, lack of rain also plagued eastern Massachusetts, raising concern among farmers and foresters. At the opposite end of the nation, desert winds pushed hot, dry air into the San Francisco Bay area from as far away as Salt Lake City, and burning permits were suspended in more than 40 California counties. The mercury headed above the 100 degree mark in inland areas and was expected to soar to 94 in San Francisco, unusually hot for the "City by the Bay."

The annual session, Africa's most important political and economic meeting, also will see strong opposition to the United States and Britain over development of an American naval base on Diego Garcia, a strategic island 1,400 miles to the northeast of here in the Indian Ocean. Virtually every one of the 47 African and Arab foreign ministers preparing for the three-day meeting of heads of state next week is pushing for a resolution denouncing superpower Involvement in the Indian Ocean. Sources said the OAU will pass a unanimous resolution condemning the violence In South Africa, where at least 138 blacks have died and more than 1,100 have been wounded in riots sparked by protests against the white regime. 9 .

CASPER AMATEUR HOCKEY CLUB THERE WILL BE A HOCKEY EQUIPMENT SALE AT OX SPORTING GOODS 249 N. Wolcott SATURDAY, JUNE 26th STARTING AT 9 A.M. Hospital to get scanner CASPER - The state Comprehensive Health Planning Advisory Council Wednesday approved a $1.75 million Improvement project for Natrona County Memorial, Hospital. Hospital administrator Lewis Spencer said approval at the state level met an important federal requirement. ; State approval is necessary before patients whose treatment involves facilities financed by the project can be eligible for such federal assistance as Medicare and Medicaid. ' The project will finance such new equipment as a $450,000 CT scanner, which Spencer called "a tremendous breakthrough in 'diagnostic radiology," and a $450,000 cardiac catherization unit. The scanner will be Wyoming's first, while Lander has the only hospital with a catherization unit, he said. Also planned is a $600,000 "general replacement, updating and upgrading" of existing X-ray "-equipment. Many expensive pieces, Spencer said, are 15-18 years old and "flat worn out." Another $300,000 ' is earmarked for remodeling existing facilities to accommodate the new equipment, he said. Spencer cited two means to finance the project, noting that half the cost will be met by funds already on hand. "The Hospital Board has set aside money for years," he said. The other half, he said, will come from loans secured by the recently established non-profit Natrona County Memorial Hospital Foundation.
