Market Jogs Ahead Slightly In Konsos Cfry of the day In Kansas City. Cpl. Davis killed a burglar in the pitch-dark attic of an abandoned school Monday night. By coincidence, the parents of his first victim—17-year-old William Robert Woods of Denver— had come to town to talk to Cpl. Davis. "I thought we could stop him from hurting someone else," said J. L. Woods. "That gun should be taken away from him," said Mrs. Davis. Clarence M. Kelley, veteran FBI agent before he became Kansas City's chief of police, transferred Cpl. Davis to training duty Tuesday night. In a five pa'ge review of the Incidents, Kellcy said there i s no place on the force for a trigger- happy policeman but he could not fault Cpl. Davis on that count. "In the heat of the chase and in view of the overt actions taken by the subjects indicating resistance, it would be very difficult for anyone to say he would have done differently under the same circumstances," the chief said. 'I feel he should be assigned to work where he will not be placed in a position where he will have to make a similar decision. A large part of my concern is due to the fait ho might, if faced with another such situation, resolve it in favor of not defending himself, resulting In his own destruction. "I am gratified Opl. Davis joins me in this feeling." Kelley said the fact Cpl. Davis was involved in three shootings in 14 months reflects the fact he is an industrious, conscientious and courageous officer. Davis joined the force late In 1959 and planned to make It.a career. He is doing college work, pointing toward a degree in social science. He is married and an active churchman. On May 9, 1962, he winged n 19-year-uld who had been arrested for shop lifting and suddenly darted away from his captors through a busy downtown street. Young Woods was killed on June 25 after h c disarmed another officer who found him prowling in a parking lot beside a bank. In the intensive dragnet operation which followed, Cpl. Davis found Woods crouched beneath a construction shack near police headquarters. Davis said he thought the boy wa« about to shoot him. Woods had another revolver beside the one he took from the first officer. Monday night, Davit, 'his police dog and two other officers answered a call to the abandoned school, where burglars were removing the copper roofing sheets. The policeman climbed from the roof down into the attic, heard noises and warned the intruders to come out with their hands up. He said he fired after he wa s hit on the head from behind. The bullet hit the heart of Aaron Charles, 61-year-old Negro with a burglary record dating to 1934, Younp Woods also had a record. He served reformatory time for stealing a car in Denver, escaped from a psychiatric hospital and was free on bond pending trial on a charge of robbing and assaulting a Denver policeman. His parents did not 'get to see Cpl. Davis. High Honor Telegram Photo to add his name fo tbo list of Boy Ssouti who have earned a God and Country award is Donald Dellinger, 12, ion of Mr. and Mrs. M.

Today in Washington Split Vote on Committee Trade Action WASHINGTON (AP) — In the news from Washington: FOREIGN AID: The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has voted to restore President Kennedy's authority to give Communist Poland and Yugoslavia the kind of trade privileges it extends to its closest friends. The action by a 9-5 vote Tuesday was a major victory for the administration. It is expected to generate a fight when the foreign aid bill reaches the Senate. In another action, the committee added $105 million to the $272 million it has recommended be cut from Kennedy's $4.5 billion foreign aid program. ANOTHER CORPS: The Senate Labor Comimttee lias approved President Kennedy's request to estabish a 5,000-member domestic peace corps. The measure, which the committee cleared Tuesday without dissent, would authorize $5 million for the National Service Corps for its first year. The program would start with no more than 300 men and women volunteers and build up to a maximum of 5,000 in three years. The members would receive $75 a month for working on such projects as improving conditions in slums, Indian reservations and among migratory farm workers, and assisting the elderly, the disabled, the mentally ill and the mentally retarded. The measure now goes to the full Senate for debate. today. .. in Garden City Page 2 (puritan C'if.v Tolngrntn Wednesday, July 24, 1963 deaths Rev. Denver H. Flowers The Rev.

Rima was arraigned in the clothes he wore when arrested— bermuda shorts : white shirt open at the collar, and canvas shoes.

Under questioning from presecu- tor Marvyn Griffith-Jones she admitted that she voluntarily gave an additional true statement to the police on April 10 about her sister, Dorothy Richardson, .13, another girl named Diane and Ward. The substance of this statement —which Miss Ilicardo insisted was trtie—was not immediately disclosed. Griffith-Jones asked her why, if the police previously had forced her into signing false statements, she had volunteered fresh information on April 10. "I did not want my sister to go to a remand home," Miss Ricardo replied. Remand homes are places where underage defendants in criminal or delinquency cases are kept. Miss Ricardo add e d she was afraid her brother would be arrested as well. She said the brother was in fact jailed soon after on pimping charges. Miss Ricardo again disavowed her statement to the police and at the preliminary hearing that she used Ward's apartment on three occasions for sexual relations with men who paid her. She testified that the only time she ever had intercourse at Ward's apartment with with a boy friend named "Silky" Hawkins and that she did not charge him. Tuesday she testified that Ward and a girl were similarly occupied in the room at the time. Douglas Fairbanks Jr. denied the testimony Tuesday by call girl Marilyn (Mandy) Rice-Davies that he had sexual relations with her. The baby-faced little 18-year-old admitted to the packed courtroom she brought the name of the former actor and television producer into the case "because I didn't like him." She had testified that Fairbanks was one of several men she had sexual relations with during three months in 1861 when she shared an apartment with Christine Keeler, leading lady in the Profumo scandal who the prosecution charges was a co-star with Mandy in a call girl stable operated by Ward. Mandy said Fairbanks didn't pay her. Fairbanks, now 53, a resident of London since the war and a friend of Britain's royal family, issued his denial through a spokesman in New York. British law bars him from commenting on the rase in London while it is still in the courts. Galena Patrons Okay $410,000 Bond Issue GALENA, Kan.
