The Kiwanis Club-sponsored event reportedly sold some $25,000 worth of equipment. (Conner News Photo) Runaway Missile Finally Down WASHINGTON (AP)-A runaway unarmed U.S. missile ap- over Cuba cannon fire and missiles from a .pursuing U.S.. jet plane and destruction signals from the ground failed to bring it down, says the Pen- parently zoomed Wednesday after tagon. The 650-mile-an-hour Mace missile apparently dropped into Mexico for a test chase by F4 the Caribbean about 100 miles Phantom jets, south of the southwest coast of Cuba, Air Force calculators reported. The missile, modified into a target drone, was routinely launched from Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., Wednesday morning and headed over- the Gulf of (Continued trom Pag* One) iay its obligations to Street Im- jrovement Districts Six and Seven, and is also committed to «ve Walnut Street between Tranklin and Laclede. Although the city faces total debits of $252,232 in the coming year, said Little, there is only some $55,000 presently on hand. Under optimum conditions, jased on studies of previous incomes, the city could expect a ;otal revenues of only about $847,000 in 1967, he added. The city- must also radically ixpand its fire department in [he near future in order to corn- sly with the standards set forth in a letter from the Arkansas Inspection and Rating Bureau. The bureau's minimum standards for the city call for four pump companies with It men and a chief officer on duly at all times. This would expand the department from its present nine full - time firemen to 28. The bureau also requires that the city also purchase a new fire truck in 1967. Fire Chief Roy Head estimates the cost of new pumper at $24,000. Failure to meet the standards of the bureau could result in the city's insurance rating being reduced from Class Six to Class Seven. This could lead to insurance premium increases averaging $10 per $10,000. Daily Record Weather U. S. Weather Bureau Agricultural service Keiser, Ark. Placid weather is the rule in Arkansas this morning with light winds and brilliant sunshine. Mild afternoon temperatures will favor the state today and Friday but nights will continue to be chilly. A major snow storm is mauling the northern Rockies. The main cold front associated with this storm will sweep across the plains tonight and Friday. The arrival of the colder air in Arkansas is indefinite at this time but it should move into northwest Arkansas late Friday afternoon or evening and move across the state Friday night. There is a chance of some precipitation accompanying the passage and much colder temperatures Saturday. Increasing southerly winds will be noted Friday ahead of the storm system. Yesterday's highs, somewhat warmer than expected, were in the upper 40s in extreme northeast Arkansas and the 50s elsewhere. Overnight lows were in the 20s and the mid 20s to low 30s in the south. Today's highs will be in the 50s to provide a pleasant day for fishermen and golfers while farm field work remains halted because of wet fields. Yesterday's high—4« Overnight Io w— 31 Precipitation previous 24 hours (to 7 ajn. today)—none precipitation Jan. 1 to data—none Sunset today—5:03 Sunrise .tomorrow—7:08 Yesterday's high—48 Overnight low—46 Precipitation Jan. 1 to date—4.87 World Deaths DETROIT (AP) — Ormond E. Hunt, 83, a director' and former executive vice president of General Motors, died Tuesday of cancer. KINGSVILLE, Tex. (AP) Milford Riggs Jr., 61, former St. Louis industrial executive, and later manager of Kingsville- Kleberg (county) Chamber of Commerce, died Tuesday, apparently of a heart attack. But it made a wrong turn and took off at 25,000 feet altitude toward Cuba. An F4 — which can fly 1,600 miles an hour — caught up with the Mace about 100 miles at sea. Officials at Eglin AFB tried to trigger the missile's own explosive destruction mechanism. The F4 pilot hit the missile with cannon fire. He fired two air-to-air missiles of a type now under development. Noming stopped the Mace. The F4 pilot gave up and came home. The Pentagon calculated the expected impact time and announced the incident at precise ly that minute — evidently to prevent Communist Cuba from saying anything first. The government also asked the Swiss Embassy in Havanna to tell Cuba what happened. So far, Cuba has not commented publicly. DRAFT Former Mayor Imprisoned OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - A Superior Court judge has sentenced former Oakland Mayor John C. Houlihan to one to 10 years in prison for embezzling $97,000 from a widow's estate. Judge Redmond Staats Wednesday rejected a plea for probation, and told Houlihan, 56: "This has been a violation of trust and confidence extending over many years. If I gave you county jail and restitution, it would probably be more burdensome on you. Probation (Continued from Page One) forces behind these demonstrations are pacifist, student and ad hoc 'stop the war' groups. "The Communist party and other subversive groups and their members continued to actively support and participate in the demonstrations throughout the country," he said. In a section titled "Communist Influence in Racial Matters," Hoover said the "civil rights movement during the last year has undergone a sharp division among its leaders as to objectives to be attained and, more specifically, the means by which these objectives would be reached. He^ >aid "several of the more militant Negro leaders have begun to espouse a line of black power. Some of these have openly advocated violence as a means of attaining their objectives." The report said Communists "recognized the opportunities inherent in this situation and are always looking for political, j social and economic inequities ' to propagandize and use as the basis for creating disorder in our society."

Little told Kiwanis that the city suffers large financial losses because of deterioration of machines which must be left outside on the present property and because of lack of facilities to properly repair and service the units. The mayor suggested a shed type building with individual stalls, similar to those used to house farm machinery. He contends the construction of a shed would actually be an economy, as the losses from equipment repairs and pilfering would decline sharply. He added that such a facility must be constructed this year to curtail maintenance, costs. Little also spoke of .the possibility of moving the city complex to the property adjacent to the city incinerator. During the course of his address, Little interjected a bit of somber humor by pleading with any of his listeners who knew of "an old half - million dollars : lying unused anywhere to volunteer the information to the administration. The city's financial difficulties, Little indicated, are nothing new, but merely old problems Friday Afternoon 2:45 SOCIAL SECURITY IN ACTION Wendy Turner, actress, discusses federal benefits and elder citizens. 3:00 SHOWCASE Presented in cooperation with Memphis Arts Council. 3:30 VOICI LA FRANCE Travel.

But this isn't quite the way the United States sees a peace settlement, if it is to have reality and meaning. * * * At the Manila conference last October — with the heads of six allied nations involved in this war, including South Vietnam — President Johnson sgreed among other things that: The allied forces will be withdrawn "as the other side withdraws its forces to the North, ceases infiltration, and the level of violence thus subsides." There was a big loophole in this, of course: The allies would do the deciding when the "level of violence" had subsided, which means they might not feel it had subsided for a long time and therefore think It necessary to stay in South Vietnam a long time. 12 Feet And More to Come HERMAN, Mich. (AP) - If ;hings keep going like they have lately the town of Herman probably will become an east-of-the- Rockies snow champion. Herman, with a population of 75, is eight miles by country road southeast of L'Anse, in Michigan's Upper Peninsula at the foot of Lake Superior's Keweenaw Bay. Mrs. Leonard Lahti, who! keeps an official snow depth chart for the State Department of Conservation, reported Wednesday that 142 inches — just two inches shy of 12 feet — had fallen on Herman since Oct. 18. That's tops for all stations east of the Rockies, and winter barely is under way. Snowfall tabulation doesn't end until May 3. Service!
