Blylhevllle (Ark.) Courier News — Tuesday, March 23,1967 - Page Fiv» Bad Apples Cited In Florida Frolic FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. '(AP) — Civic and economic leaders agreed today the city had a swinging Easter as a playground for vacationing college students, but wouldn't go along with a prosecutor who called the frolickers "despicable" and unwelcome in the future. City Commissioner Allen Forbes said statements Monday by State Atty. Roger H. Harper showed tude." "an unfortunate atti- Harper told a Hollywood civic club that Fort Lauderdale ought to end its annual "college crud invasion. The time has come, to place this despicable class of tourists on notice it is no longer welcome in Broward County." He suggested police and court erackdowns and "community ostracism" for those who come next year, and notice to all colleges that the students no longer are welcome. About 30,000 young people thronged Fort Lauderdale beaches and streets over the weekend. Close to 500 were arrester between Thursday and Sunday, mostly for offenses related to drinking and disturbing the peace. Several delivery trucks were looted, a courtroom raided for souvenirs, and police officers roughed up. Forbes said, "It's unfortunate there always are a few bad apples in the barrel." But, he said, less than one per cent of the visitors did enough to incur arrest "and this is amazing considering the potential electric atmosphere we had here." He said the throngs als oincluded "our future leaders. It's all a part of being young." Police said many of those arrested were not visiting collegians, but youngsters from Fort Lauderdale and neighboring s«uth Flroida cities. City Commissioner James Leavitt said, "We should invite them back next year and tell them we're going to enforce law who operates and order.' Fred Temple, two motels, said, "They were both full mostly of college students. This year was the best bunch we ever had. They did less damage and caused less trouble. "Of course there's always a certain group of undersirables. Most of these are riffraff from our own area." Meanwhile Municipal Judge Stephen Booher was cleaning up a docket of 300 court cases stemming from the tumult. Most of the defendants pleaded guilty. Those who didn't had to post $500 bond for June appearance. Police said students' parents, when contacted, seemed more exasperated than sympathtic to their sons' and daughters' plight. "Plead guilty, stupid, I'll pay the fine," officers said one father told his son. FBI May Get Into Garrison Probe NEW ORLEANS, La. (AP) Dist. Atty. Jim Garrison moved on two fronts today to get witnesses he wants in his John F. Kennedy assassination conspiracy probe. The district attorney's office issued a warrant Monday for the arrest of Lilly Mae McMaines, 22, Omaha, Neb. as a material witness. The U.S. attorney's office was asked by Garrison to issue an unlawful flight order against Gordon Novel, 29, former owner of a French Quarter bar who disappeared last week before he was to have appeared before the Orleans Parish grand jury.

"I think it is very odd that Novel can be found by newspaper and television media and not by the people who are trying o arrest him," said Asst. Dist. ,tty. James Alcock. There was no immediate word rom LaCour's office about the equest and' an FBI spokesman declined to comment about Nov- 1. Some federal authorities are mown to look upon Garrison's nvestigation with a cold eye.

Coast Guard Saves Youth ERIE, Pa. (AP) — Boyd Berosky, 11, rode out on Lake Erie on a chunk of ice; and rode back in a Coast Guard rowboat. The Erie youth and two companions built a raft out of driftwood Monday. It broke apart and Berosky jumped onto a piece of ice. His companions ran for help. By the time the Coast Guard got there — about 50 minutes — Berosky had. drifted about 100 yards from shore. He wasn't hurt. LBJ (Continued from Page One) son why this could happen.

Yet Johnson, who has always wished for approval, has steadfastly refused to seek it if doing so meant .doing what he thinks is wrong to do: easing up on the war or trying to backout of it. He knows that if the war drags on into 1968 — and the North Vietnamese are probably betting that the realization of i will make him knuckle under — it may cost him re-election. But he shows no signs of being deterred by that and until there is peace in Vietnam, or come sign of it, he may still stay away from Europe where criticism, and ptrtiaps public anti- Johnson demonstrations, might await him.

Only One Quint Left VASTERAS, Sweden (AP) — Another of the quintuplets born to a Swedish woman March 21 died Monday night, leaving only a girl alive. Doctors said the girl's chances of survival were somewhat better than the other babies' because her weight at birth, 28 ounces, was the heaviest of the five. Mrs. Frederik Lars Jansson, 28, gave birth to four girls and a boy after being treated •with a hormone fertility drug. The babies were three months premature. Three of the girls died on the first day after birth. The boy died Monday night. LAND'S END, England (AP) — Navy planes smashed the stricken tanker Torrey Canyon with 1,000-pound bombs today and set it afire to destroy the oil remaining aboard. Smoke rose 2,000 feet above the sundered three sections of the 974-foot ship. The goal was to stop the flow of oil onto Cornwall's already polluted beaches. Twin-jet bombers of the British navy were ordered to deliver the coup de grace after attempts to set afire the giant oil slick appeared inefficetive. LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. (AP) — No one knows why Herman the hippo left home. Most people guess he swam nearly 15 miles in the ocean before turning up Monday at a health spa for horses. But everyone knows why he went home. Lisa the elephant lured him. Herman, all 1,500 pounds of him, had been missing since he wandered away Friday night om his beachfront cage in luntington Beach, north of ;ere. He had been appearing at : benefit carnival. Police, his owner, Gene Holer, and friends couldn't find im. They theorized that Herian, who often was taken for n ocean swim, took an unau- horized dip. Monday, Connie Hendricks let ler bulldog, Challenger, out for an airing at her thoroughbred ea spa, a health resort for race horses. "In just a minute, Challenger came rushing back in, so I in- •estigated," she said. "I found Herman in the big swimming jool where we conditisn lorses." * * * It was evident Herman had >reakfasted on the horses' hay and then went into the pool, which is filled with sea water. 'I locked up the horses so hey wouldn't get frightened," Mrs. Hendricks said, "then I called the police." They found Herman's hoof- >rints leading from the ocean to All been ships and aircraft had warned away from the area seven miles off Land's End. A 20-mile radius was placed under restriction.

Owner Holler was relieved, "He can swim like a fish," he said, "but I was worried that a shark might attack him." Holler first thought he would rope Herman. But Herman remained submerged in nine feet of water. Then Holier led Lisa, an elephant Herman's age — four years — and his childhood sweetheart, to the edge of the pool. Holler had bought them as babies — Herman from Africa, Lisa from India. "I had only one heated stall, so I put them together," he said. "They've been inseparable ever since." Holler thought Herman would come out of the water voluntarily as soon as he heard or saw Lisa. "Speak, Lisa," Holler commanded. "C'mon Lisa, speak." The elephant glared at Holler and let out a trumpet. Herman remained submerged. Three times Lisa was led into the chilly water. Three times she scrambled out. Just as everyone was about to ;ive up, Herman's head popped up. Lisa plunged into the pool. The pair frolicked in the pool — hippo love-in. Finally, out marched Lisa. Herman followed — right into their cozy van. Herman had come home.
