'Bay of Pigs Sequel Told NF.U YORK (APt An uncx- pc;lct! telephone call from President Kennedy involved Dr. Mllion JS. Kisicnhower in "one of Iho most amazing and muddled incident? in (hr history of inter-Amcriran affairs,' 1 the former president's brother snyn. Dr. Kisnnhmvpr'* book. "The Wine Is Hitter: Tiie United States' end Latin America," published by Doubleday relate* a sequel to the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba. He calls the episode "the most exns- , peratinR, frustrating and enervating six weeks of my life." The story concerns the attempt j . to liberate Cuban invasion pris- j oners in return for $3-milIion j worth of tractors. Eventtinllv, fl ' year and a half later, the cost was 2o times that much in medical supplies. Dr. K-isenhower intimates the episode nearly brought disaster on U.S. prestige. "Fortunately." he writes, "the terrihla mistakes made in the Cuban invasion and the clumny fumbling displayed in the tractors for prisoners deal have not characterized other efforts of the Kennedy administration in the Latin- American area. The moment that President Kennedy called in the ambassadors of the Latin-American republics to the White House early in 1961 to formulate an Alliance (for Progress) otir efforts to seek justice for the underprivileged of Latin America through collective action have been constantly and earnestly pursued." Most of the book concerns Dr. Eisenhower's observations as special Latin-American ambassador for President Eisenhower. Hut a chapter is devoted to the tractors affairs which began a month after the invation when Prime Minister Fide] Castro of Cuba offered to trade the prisoner*. Dr. Eisenhower say g President Kennedy telephoned him May 19, 1961, and explained that Castro was sending 10 prisoners to the i United States to negotiate for the ! release of the others. The President wanted to "establish a committee of private citizens for the sole purpose of raising funds to buy the tractors," and said he would "explain the matter to the American people the next day." Dr. Eisenhower agreed to serve. So did the late Eleanor Roosevelt, Walter Reuther and other prominent Americans. But. Eisenhower says, the promised presidential statement never came. Furious criticism rose in Congress. Some congressmen demanded that Secretary of State Dcan'IUiak say whether the ad ministration approved the com mittee's efforts. "I was beginning to be angry," Dr. Elsenhower writes. "President Kennedy had not explained our position as mere fund raisers in support of governmental policy as he had led me to believe he would. President Kennedy re maincd silent, despite hints in the newspapers that he was involved. I had been told that he would make clear to the public the gov ernment'o role in our effort. Not only did he remain silent; he had apparently not bothered even to call in congressional leaders from both parties to brief them on the plan, an action which might have done much to forestall criticism in Congress." markets LOCAL PRODUCE Ego* Extra Largt A't .29 E0fl» A'« L»rgt .27 Egg* A'* Medium .25 Egg* B'* Larg» .24 Egg* C'l .20 lit Grid* Crtam .50 Heavy Htm .1) Light H«n» .85 LOCAL WAOON PRICES Whtat $1.7? unchg Mil* $1.75 unchg Ry* .85 unchg Barley .83 bu. unchg CO-OP PPICRS Wheat $1.73 dwn 2 Mllo $1.75 unehg.

Wlnfield Grth 7.60 8.31 Stock Mart at Irregular Pace NEW YORK (AP)-The stock market moved irregularly lusher in slow trading early this afternoon as Wall Street weathered the shock of the latest report from the Securities and Exchange Commission. The staff report of the SEC recommended some drastic changes in trading procedures, but Wall Strceters observed that the study has not as yet been given a stump of approval from the full commission and that any changes made would come only after further study and enactment of new regulations.

Scientists Prep For Big Show WASHINGTON (AP) — Nature's big show Saturday — a total eclipse of the sun — will draw one of the biggest scientific audiences in history and have a barrage of rockets for an overture. The experts, however, won't view the awesome night as just a spectacular. They hope to get information that may reduce the hazard s °' space travel and improve weather forecasting and communications. Because of the eclipse's path more people than ever before will Two Are Killed Near Kingman KING-MAN, Kan. (AP) — Two persons were killed and two injured in the hrcadon collision of a car and a panel truck three miles west of Kinsman. Killed were Cleland E. Crag- gelt, 42, of Wichita, driver of the truck, and Lloytl Whitmer, 68, of Zemin, driver of the car. Mrs. Marie Whitmer, 63, was in critical condition at Kingman 'Memorial hospital. Walter Brinkley. 69. a passenger in the truck, was listed in fai r condition at the hospital. The Highway Patrol said a pickup truck driven by Leo Hageman, 57, of Spivey had pulled off on the easlbound shoulder of the road to assist a motorist whose car had run out of gas. Whitmer, also headed east, came over the crest of a hill, applied his brakes and skidded into the westbound lane where he collided with the Craggctt vehicle. lawmen Seize 'Wildcat'Cache PAOLA, Kan. (AP) — Sheriff Martin Prothc of Miami Count'y reported he seized 25 gallons of moonshine in the country 14 miles northwest of Paola Wednesday. A woman arrested at the farmhouse will be charged with the illegal sale of untaxcd liquor, ho said. The operation wa s uncorked when Johnson County officers stopped a car for a routine check in the Kansas City suburbs Tuesday morning and found a gallon jug half full of a liquid that had an alcoholic smell. The occupnts of the car said it wa s "blue smoke" and they bought it in Miami County. glimpse at least part of the eclipse. Most Americans, though, will sec only a partial eclipse. It will be total only along a GO- mile-wide path across Alaska, Canada and Maine. And only in these areas may it be viewed safely with the naked eye, for elsewhere the performance will be too brilliant. Health authorities have urged all but scientist a with special equipment to turn their backs on it, lest their e yes be permanently damaged. The recommendation Is to watch the big show on television, or to us cardboard reflectors. To do this, you punch a small hole in a piece of cardboard and hold it so the sun's image at your back will be projected through the hole onto a white surface. A rocket barrage from various points in North America will herald the eclipse. The rockets will be used in conducting various experiments. A jet aircraft, carrying scientists and an astronaut, Navy Lt. Cmdr. Malcolm S. Carpenter, will chase the eclipse's shadow across the continent. Radio beams from earth will be focused on it. Other scientists will studv the antics of birds and other wildlife during the eerie period of the eclipse. A University of Maine group, for example, intends to keeo ta'bs on the behavior of mosquitoes. Truck Found In Washington A 1963 pickup truck taken from a Garden City man was recovered last night in Spokane, Wash. Garden City Assistant Police Chief Richard Rohleder said the pickup is owned by Elmer York, 1306 N. Main. York told police he loaned the pick-up to an employe, William Dawson. Dawson was living at) the Stone Hotel. Sunday Dawson drove the pickup to Sublette where he was arrested on an open bottle charge, police said. Soon after his release, Dawson headed west. Rohleder said Spokane authorities called him this morning notifying him of Dawson's arrest. Rohleder did not disclose why j Dawson was arrested. York said he would leave today for Spokane to return the pickup. No local charges will be filed against Dawson. The 43-year-old Dawson is » native of Bartlcsvilte, Okla. Bystander Is Killed During Drunken Frenzy OSAGE BEACH, Mo. (AP)-A young man's attempt to kill himself in a drunken frenry led to the death of an innocent bystander Wednesday night. The victim's wife was critically wounded. The drama began at dusk when Mrs. Raymond Hall remonstrated with her nephew, Robert Paul Matthews, 21, over his drinking. Mrs. Hall and her husband run the big Breezawood resort on the Lake of the Ozarks and Matthews had been working there. Matthews went to his cabin and got a .22 automatic rifle, then returned to the resort* office and told his aunt he intended to shoot himself. She wrestled with him for the gun, but he broke free and ran outside. 'Mrs. Hall called for help from Orin Robinette, 35, who had just arrived to pick im his wife who is a hostess at Breezewood. Then, Sheriff Russell Osborn said, Matthews fired one shot, killing Robinette, Mrs. Robinette, 28, ran to her husband and was shot three times. Matthews ran to the garage, pot a jeep, drove down to the Breezewood dock, and took a fast motor boat into the big lake. He beached it in a cove 1% miles away. It was found there by sheriff's officers and highway patrolmen. They began searching a wooded area near the cove. Two and one-half hours later, Matthews walked back into the Breezewood resort, dropped his gun and surrendered to Deputy Bob Dodd. Sheriff Osbom said Matthews freely told about what happened, but refused to sign the statement. He said the prosecutor would file charges in the morning. Matthews is from Grand Junction, Colo. He has a long record as a juvenile in Colorado, Osborn said, and has been jailed on numerous other charges as an adult in Colorado and Missouri.

Nature's Artwork Telegram Photo Kansas' summer skies sometimes match the best works of the most-skilled artists for sheer beauty. Typical is this towering cloud which built up southeast of Garden City recently. Such high clouds offer highly-interesting studies in weather matters, too, says the Federal Aviation Agency at the local airport. These are cumulo-nimbus clouds. Both words are Latin, meaning "cushion-like" and "rain." Hot, dry air rises upward from the earth, causing turbulence. Giant, anvil-shaped thunderheads grow out of the stack — and cooling thunder showers result. They're fine for looking at, says the FAA but pilots never dare to fly into them. today...

Carter, local historian, brought an old brochure to the Telegram recently. Hie booklet was printed in 1905 to boost Garden City and Finney County. Publishing the brochure was the Garden City Industrial Club, forerunner of the present Chamber of Commerce. Language used in describing Garden City is so flowery that a visitor mi slit find it impossible to recognize the area after such a "hard sell." The town "is fortressed by the green slopes of the sandhills, surrounded by smiling valleys and ions sweeps of prairie." It quot«» an article published in the Topeka Capital a short tine before: "There are more closely-clipped bluegrass lawns, more Ladie.s Hume Journal cottages wit'i cri in s on rambler roses trailing over the front porch in Garden City than the writer has ever seen in any eastern Kansas; and Missouri town of like popu-1 lation," On the subject of irrigation: "All about the corporate limits (of the city) are farms that »peak eloquently of the practica- bility ami the financial recompense attending Uie artificial application of water to a soil that needs nothing else." Hig Utings were happening on the local scene in those years. The sugar factory on the west edge of town was to be built soon. "It will be one of the most modern and complete beet sugar factories in the world," the brochure proudly announced. The booklet'* enthusiasm was justified. The sugar beet plant operated for a half century and furnished a major part of the towns's economy — before closing down a few years ago. Another big project was the national forest reserve, to be planted south of the river where the state buffalo preserve now stands. It was tried and was a failure. Aijother identical project in Nebraska started at the same time vas a success. In the sandhills of Uie Cornhusker State, the national forest now is a major tourist attraction. A state vH tamp is there and deer roam the woods. But the 1905 brochure could not ; forsec the failure of the experiment just soutli of town. It wrote: "Next spring, 5 million trees will be planted. This forest preserve will be of incalculable ben- | cl'it to this part of Uie state. It will undoubtedly exercise a marked influence on the climate, tempering the heat of summer and increasing the rainfall." | Finally, tht 1W5 booklet offers , this tempting picture to would be ne« residents: "The main streets of Uie city i are sprinkled, and drinking fountains for man and beast are located at convenient points. A park in the center of the city (Stevens Park) affords a place for recreation and a fine band there 'gives regular concerts. "Garden City has always been a law-abiding, moral city, peopled by the suit of the earth. Today Uiere is not a saloon, joint, gambling house, or den of iniquity in the city. The poor house has not had an inmate for several years and the jail stands empty. "So far as our people are concerned, these two institutions might be abolished."

Vacation Ends In Tragedy ELLINWOOD, Kan. AP) — A father driving his two young sons on a happy summer vacation mission... two men in a big truck used in building power lines... They came together in a grind, ing collision at the intersection of a 'country road and U.S. 56 near Ellinwood Wednesday, and all but the truck driver died. Trooper William Boehme of the Kansas Highway Patrol said Larry White, 21, told him the brakes on the truck didn't work at a stop sign. The truck coasted into the side of the car. Eugene F. Moos, 38-year-old Ellinwood postal employe and theater operator, was driving the car. With him were Sammy Allen Moos, 14; Gary Eugene Moos, 12, and David Reffner, 15, of Lyons, Kan. All were killed outright. Earl Berkley, 41, a co-worker riding with White, died shortly after he was admitted at Lyons District Hospital. Sammy Allen Moos had been visiting in Lyons a few days with David Reffner, who formerly lived in Ellinwood. Sammy's father and brother drove to Lyons Wednesday afternoon to pick him up. David headed back with them fo- a visit. Barkley and White worked for the Wilson Electric Co. of Chase, Kan., and were on their way home from a line stringing job 2'.L> miles south of the intersection. White was reported in fair condition at the hospital.
