MOOTH AS .00 45 QuDrt Code No. 18 $4 AN Even Enrollment By Nov. 25 Goal Of Legion Auxiliary Re-enrollment of its entire membership for 1955 by Thanks giving day will be the goal of Bedford Blair council of the American Legion auxiliary in an intensive campaign which began on Veterans' day, Nov. 11, Mrs Agnes Walker, council membership ahairman, has announced. The campaign here will be part of a nationwide effort which has the enrollment of one million aux iliary members for 1955 as its goal. "Already a large percentage of our members have re-enrolled for the activities of the new year," said Mrs. Walker, "and we hope that all will have their 1955 cards by Thanksgiving. Oui American Legion auxiliary has so many things to do, so many activities planned, that we want to be at full strength before the new year begins. "In addition to our present members, we are also enrolling new members from among the many women of war-service fam ilies who are eligible. Eligibility now extends to mothers, wives, sisters and daughters of American Legion members and of de ceased veterans of the two World wars and the Korean conflict, as well as to women who them selves served in the armed forces duving these wars. In the auxil iary they find opportunity to go forward with the men of the Le gion in a broad and interesting program of patriotic activities. "For years the American Le gion'- auxiliary has been the na tion's largest women's patriotic organization with nearly one million women enrolled and with lo cal units in nearly 14,n00 commu nities throughout the country. We hope to be even larger next year because of the increasing need for services we render for the sick and disabled veterans and their families, for the children of veterans, for the maintenance of a loyal, patriotic citizenship, and for the security of America from the aggression of world communism. "We hope that all eligible wom en in Bedford and Blair counties will be enrolled with us as we go ahead with this work in 19a5.

Crooks said. Fred Dalley, 20, of 905 2nd Ave., was admitted to Altoona hospital, having pellets in both legs, the thigh and left knee, it was reported. Mr. Crooks said he had been at the youth's "home, Monday night and learned , that the accident happened shortly after 9 A. M. in the Sinking Valley area while Dailey and two companions were hunting. However, Mr. Crooks, said, he was unable to learn details at the youth's home relative to the acci dent and would continue the probe Tuesday. 92 Pass In Civil Service Examination Ninety-two names of men who scored the passing mark of 75 in the recently held civil service ex amination for firemen were posted Monday in the office of the department of public safety in city hall.

FOUND BAG Young Houk found a green cloth bag outside the Sheppard home. It fiould have been discarded by a strange prowler whom the osteopath blames for the murder. Or, from the state's viewpoint, it could have been tossed there by Sheppard to make it look like a burglar had been about. Dr. Sheppard claims a bushy haired prowler beat his 31-year- old wife to death and knocked him unconscious. Chief Eaton testified he , took a statement from Leo Stawickl. a- Cleveland steel-worker who "claimed to have seen a figure standing near the Sheppard home" the morning of July 4. Stawickl testified at a ball bond hearing for Dr. Sheppard that he was returning from a Ashing trip at the time. Chief Eaton quoted Stawicki as saying tle lights of his car "pick' ed up an individual with bushy hair and. a light shirt." The chief said Stawicki "pointed out a tree where he said the figure was standing. The tree was directly to the east of the Sheppard home.1 Stawicki's statement was "turned over to . . . authorities," Eaton added. The state, seeking the death penalty, said Sheppard killed Mar ilyn as an outgrowth of affairs with other women. Mrs. Sheppard was tour months pregnant with her second son: her first son, Chip, is seven. That Mrs. Sheppard was pregnant with a son was brought out in an autopsy made after her death. Earlier, a rumor that the osteopath was sterile and killed his wife over her second pregnancy was put on the record. Such gossip arose last summer during the murder investigation. The defense brought the report up in line with its argument that the state fixed on Dr. Sheppard as the guilty man on suspicion and rumor, then refused to consider any other possibility. Neic Explosions Blow Sealed Mine Open (Continued from Page 1) pour concrete there again if the cap held. Meantime, the mining men nut in more earth fill at the cover ed main slope, located 2 miles down the valley at the tipple and cleaning plant. The job of sealing all five openings to the mine was completed Sunday night under the glare of temporary floodlights. The sealing is necessary to cut off the flow of air and smother a fire burning deep underground. I he mine, which employed 200 on a normal working day, will not oe reopened until tests show the air inside is safe enough for rescue teams to enter. That may taKe days or months. President Asks Pact Ratification (Continued from Page 1) jockeying to upset this move by proposing further talks, Eisenhower said they need fear no attack from such a purely defensive arrangement. Attached to Eisenhower's letter was a report by Secretary of State Dulles, who negotiated the London-Paris accords. Dulles' lengthy analysis spelled out precisely how they would work. After explaining how the agreements would work, Eisenhower made a gesture toward Russia, which contends NATO is a threat to its borders. The Russians, still battling against German integration With the West, proposed over the weekend that a 25-power conference be held Nov. 29. The Soviets proposed last Oct, 23 a Big Four conference. Indiana Alumnae Enjoy Fall Event An interesting talk by Miss May Ireland, a teacher from Keith Junior High school who spent last year overseas in Europe, was enjoyed by members of the Indiana Alumnae association at the fall dinner meeting at the Replogle Party House in Roaring Spring Tuesday, Nov. 9.

Democrat Wants To Expel McCarthy (Continued from Page 1) "I'm willing to admit! I have changed my mind in both particulars." Ervin, who succeeded the late Sen. Hoey (D-NC) last June, added, however, he does not intend to propose expulsion of McCarthy during the present debate which is on a recommendation by Ervin, Case and four other senators that McCarthy be censured on two counts of unbecoming and contemptuous conduct. , The chairman of the censure committee. Sen. Watkins (R-Utah), sought meanwhile to pull the rug from under McCarthy's "who promoted Peress?" cani-paign. Watkins said McCarthy himself can readily dig out the answer on the basis of information already supplied by the army. Denying this, McCarthy declared the Pentagon is still shielding "the secret master" who promoted Peress a New York dentist who had refused to say whether he was a Communist and then rushed through the discharge which made a court-martial impossible. . McCarthy and Watkins clashed often and heatedly at a hear- .ing called by McCarthy, who still neaas tne senate invesugauuna subcommittee, just before debate on the censure resolution resumed on the senate floor. Watkins, appearing as the sole witness, told McCarthy it may well be nobody is "criminally" guilty in the army's handling of Peress. v Sternly, McCarthy replied any senator who holds that view is "derelict in his duty." "I don't believe you can ever be satisfied," Watkins shot back, "unless you can find some one who could be ahot or hung."
