(AP) — + This little bayou community bustled with excitement today watching for a _ ph«nlom whistler whose weird serenades have terriorlzed all 18- year-old bride-to-be. Nearly all of the village's 200 population peered out ot windows last nlsht while a cordon of sheriff's deputies guarded the home of Jacquelyn Cadow. For the past few days the townspeople have talked of little except the intruder who threatened the- girl's life aiid vowed to prevent her marriage to a young state trooper. Opinion is divided over whether the nocturnal whistler is a prankster, a would-be killer or a lunatic. His whistle Is a shrill Interpretation of a funeral dirge. - state police, who were dva\vn into the investigation by State Trooper Herbert Belsom of New Orleans, Jacquelyn's husband-to- be, said they were stepping out ot the case. "I'ranksler" "We are convinced it is the work . of a prankster," Trooper Vincent B. Ebcier said. ' State Police Sgt. N. J. Khoury, said the cadow home yesterday | took on the appearance of a mecca. Hundreds of curiosity seekers in automobiles paused for a look at the scene of the whistler's visits— a cottage surrounded by moss-draped oaks. ' A doctor attended the young bride-to-be who collapsed Tuesday njght after she and her mother, her mother's sister and a New Orleans state.*; reporter all said they twic* heard the Intruder's FUN- IRAL, whistle. The reporter, Roy Helnecke. Joined Trooper Belsom in a -search of the Cadow yard, but found nothing. "The family doesn't seem to have any enemies," said Sheriff Leon Vial. "It is either a crazy person or someone close to the family who has something against them that w* don't know about." The girl's mother, Mrs. .Clifford Cidow, said It started with whistled wolfcalls last February. Two months ago, when Jacquelyn's engagement to the 86-year-old trooper was announced, the mother said she received telephoned th'reals. "I'll kill her. I'll stick a knife in her. Your daughter will never marry Herbert," Mrs. Cadow. quoted the caller. The wedding is set lor Oct. 1. "I'll marry Herbert If police have *o escort me up the aisle" said Jaojuelyn.

Seems they "just nntursilly assume" a Buick is he- yond their reach—and so pass up the car they're really itching to own. Now why "assume" anything as important to your happiness as a new car? Why not see for yourself how delivered prices run —how close Buick matches your own budget— how frequently it is priced under some cars you may be considering? Then—if there is a particular car in mind—sharpen up your pencil a little, Is it a six—or an eight, like Buick?-If an eight, is it a valve-in-head eight? That adds a plus in efficiency, you know, even without the extra edge of Buick's Fircbnll power. Will you ride on loitr soft coil springs, as in Buick— or on only two? Will the drive he through a sealed torque-tube that keeps the rear wheel assembly firmly aligned? It is in a Buick. Do you get soft, low-pressure tires as part of the price—or as extras? Will you have bumper guards built as part of the bumper, or a one-piece cast-metal grille that can be costly to repair or replace? JUoes the price include air cleaner; oil filter; dual horns, windshield wipers and sun visors; an automatic dome light; self-locking luggage lid; a single key for all locks? And is there an automatic drive*, or one in which gears still shift in normal driving? Ics, sharpen your pencil—and there you will be, in a Buick. Whether it's a SPECIAL, n SUPF.R or a lordly ROAIJMASTER, you'll be driving the big buy of its price class, and gelling a rich bonus of driving comfort, driving thrill and "fashion-first" styling. Rut ynii have to make the first move. You are (he one who has to find out. Mow about starling now— with a call on your Buick dealer?
