Congress Ready for Rail Action By JOE HALL WASHINGTON (AP) — Congress is tooling up to move promptly on President Kennedy's recommendations to avert a nationwide railroad strike but few members think it can act in a week. Congressional committee staffs have done considerable research and hearings are expected to start in both branches within a day or so after Kennedy sends up his proposals on Monday. oDateline WESTERN KANSAS By BETH LILEY Wonder how many area residents ventured a quick peak at today's eclipse? Even though the dangers of looking directly at the eclipse have been widely publicized, imagine there were one or two. denizens who cast an unprotected eye skyward. August will be a month of much activity in the area. County fairs will keep rcsidencs busy, not to mention all the pre-school activities. Lane County will kickoff the area county fairs. Di>gh- ton will be the scene of that event scheduled for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Other area fairs include Hugoton, Aug. 22, 23 and 24; Ulysses, Aug. 15, 16 and 17; Syracuse, Aug. 7 through 10; Scott City, Aug. 6, 7 and 8; Johnson, Aug. 13 and 14; Lakin, Aug. 14, 15 and 16; and Leoti, Aug. 20 and 21. Mrs. Alex Apple, Leoti, had a thrilling experience recently. An 18 carat gold wedding band, lost by her some 57 years ago at-the Apple ranch southwest of Leoti was recovered. It was presented to her while she was a patient in the Leoti hospital. The ring, still in good condition, was uncovered from its dusty grave by her -grandchildren who live on tJia ranch. She said she lost the ring in 1906. A migrant ministry program will start at Ulysse s Monday. It will be underthe auspicies of the Ulysses Ministerial Alliance and local lay workers. It's a first for Grant County. Conducting the program will be Frank Tamez who has also conducted similar pro-grams at Holcomb, Lakin and Leoti in recent years. Tourists at the Cimarron Crossing Park might believe they happened onto a "Gun- smoke" TV set.

Frank Barber of that town said a truck pulled into his service station with" the front end aU "bashed in" The truck driver informed Barber he hit a good-sized deer that was on the highway. Page 5 Garden CHy Telegram Saturday, July 20, 1963 Legislators said the length of time needed to pass a law will depend on the depth of the President's recommendations. Sen. Lister Hill, D-Ala., chairman of th e Senate Labor Committee, said it "would be moving mighty fast "to get the bill through in one week before the July 29 deadline. But there was some hope that if Congress showed a determination to act by that time, the railroads and unions might again decide to postpone the showdown. Under an agreement made at the White House July 10, the carriers agreed to hold off instituting new work rules—which eventually would eliminate 65,000 jobs—until July 29. The five operating unions also agreed not to call a strike befora then. The President received a report Friday on the facts and issues in the dispute. Its contents will be made public today. The President is expected to use the report as a basis for recommending legislation to solve the dispute and avert or stop a nationwide strike. One highly placed member of Congrcs s said he understood Kennedy would propose a narrowly restricted solution applying only to the current dispute. According to this version, the three-man board headed by Judge Samuel Rosenman which previously made recommendations for settling the argument would be called back into the case. This time it would mak e detailed recommendations for solving 1 all phases. The work rule s would be held .in abeyance during this reconsideration. Thee there would be another 30- day period for bargaining by the rail lines and unions on these findings. Any items" left unresolved 'would be settled by the board. The dispute involves what the carriers call "featherbedding." They want to eliminate jobs, largely those of diesel freight firemen, which they maintain are unnecessary and are costing the railroads and the public $600 million a year. The unions have fought the proposals to institute the new work rules, contending the jobs are necessary for safety and training. • '•• i a On a map Norway appears almost as one great mountain, culminating in 8,097-foot Galdhopig- gen. -Whether buying or selling, use Telegram Want Adi I Weed Harvesting Toloffrn:il Photo Surrounding weeds at the Jones School playground, Boy Scouts of Troop 33 have been on the attack the last few days.

No Injuries, Plenty of Excitement San Francisco 'Bombed SAN FRANCISCO (AP> — A Navy attack bomber dropped a bomb by mistake on crowded, downtown Market Street Friday during the noon rush to lunch. The pale blue bomb was a prac- lice one. The gunpowder in it didn't explode. And it hit nobody. But it caused plenty of excitement. "I used to fry a bomber in Italy," said Policeman Norman Ronnoberg. "I never expected to get bombed in the streets of San P'rancisco." "It looked like a shotgun had bkwn a three-inch hole through my office window," said Bob Cuy- ler of Menlo Park, an executive on the seventh floor of the eight- story, glass-walled IBM Building. The 25-pound bomb came loose as Lt. R. A. Kiner of Anaheim, Calif., headed his A4A Skyhawk toward a landing at Alameda Naval Air Station after a practice bombing run over California's Central Valley. The bomb, falling 25,000 feet, missed the crowded sidewalks and gouged a hole in the Middle of Market Street a foot wide and four inches deep. Then it bounced in a 300-foot arc over a five-story building while a fragment hit Cuyler's seventh-floor office. Next the Mark 70, Model 5 bomb tore a chunk of concrete from a cornice on the fourth floor of the Phoenix Buikling on Pine Street more than a block away. Then it thudded to the street and bounced against a Pacific Gas & Electric Co. truck in which three workmen were eating sandwiches. "We hard the thump," said one startled workman, Clco Fain, of Sun Bruno. "I got out of the truck and there was the tail piece of this bomb on the street about 10 feet, away. Boy, next time we call lunch with our hard hats on," 1 today... in Garden City Hospitals ADMISSIONS At S(. Catherine Mrs. Clifford Mauley, Z\12 N. Main. Daniel V. Smith, Winonu.
