The Hour For Big Move On Hand By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP)—The hour of tragedy has come. The moment of eternal separation is at hand. It is the last dny of kindergarten. We are at a final tumultuous meeting. Some of our parents are there and they nervously show each other some of the prize drawings we have made. The best drawing shows a wav- ery white lamb against an eternally waving green pasture. The outline of the lamb is hysterical. The acclaim is hysterical. All the grownups are hysterically confident nobody else in history ever drew a lamb so well before Dew sprinkles Mrs. Steele's ipcctacles as she pounds the piano harder. The pace grows faster. This Is the class, united together for the last time. The parents are forgotten in the magic of Mrs. Steele's music. You are going around In a circle Ht full gallop. No child in kindergarten history has galloped quite so well. This moment is immortal. Mrs. Steele is nodding her head vigorously. You .ore swept by a sense of power. Mrs. Sleele has never yet hud a horse in kindergarten .who can gallop quite like you. 37 More Jurors Drawn For Duty It is a nervous moment of cla.s.' acclaim. Then Mrs. Steele, the teacher, sits down at the piano and begins to play. The notes she strikes induce a vclcome and familiar group hypnosis. Each child becomes a rampant example of true culture afoot. Like slow, methodical horses each child begins to prance around the room in time with the tune. You are exhilarated. The melody grows wilder. You feel your feet flinging clear in a freedom you never have enjoyed before. Then suddenly Mrs. Steele begins to slow down the pace of her music, and the dancing kinder- gnrten children slow down too. But you know in your heart you galloped in a classic way, and Mrs. Steele will never again have a student who danced it so boldly and well. Goodby kindergarten. Hello first grade!

Todd, husband of film actress Elizabeth Taylor and producer of "Around the World in 80 Days," was one of four killed in the crash near Grants, N.M. After long and detailed investigation, the Civil Aeronautics Board reported today: "The probable cause of this accident was the loss of control of an overloaded aircraft following the failure of an engine at a cruising altitude which was critical for single-engine operation. The loss of control was aggravated by surface ice accretion." Todd, 50, was flying from Burbank, Calif., to a testimonial dinner in New York. The others killed were movie writer Art Conn, 49, pilot Bill Verner, 42, and co-pilot Tom Barclay, 36. Pilot, Minister Talents Found In Rev. Frank Swaim DENVER, Colo (AP) — Twenty years ago a prankster splashed the words "Flying Deacon" in bright paint across the fuselage of Frank Swaim's training plane. Notices Swaim laughed along with his buddies in the naval flight training program for he knew they were showing more pride then foolery. Swaim felt good. Now Swaim, a commercial airline pilot, might better be called "The Flying Minister" for he successfully combines the cockpit p ersona ] s with the pulpit as an ordained minister. The 45-year-old Swaim found his thoughts turning to religion in the late 1930s while he was flying alone over the Pacific. He felt he was losing some of the satisfaction he got in flying. "What if I should die?" he asked himself. "I'm not prepared." He talked to a minister in Pensacola, Fla., and then, enthused, he began to pour his spare time into intensive study of the Bible. The study continued for eight years while he was in the Navy, three more as a commercial airline pilot in Chicago and another two as an Air Force transport pilot. He was ordained a minister of the Church of Christ in 1956. Along with his wife and two sons, Swaim also conducts his own Bible reading correspondence course with 208 students across the country. The course is an expensive proposition but Swaim pays every penny from his pilot-captain's checks.

It was hardly a time for a man to think about anything but his own skin. For it was 1942 and the Japs were pouring through our lines. Rather than surrender, Conner fled to the jungles. He was knotted with fear and sick with malaria, but in his pocket was a copy of the New Testament, the chance farewell gift of a fellow officer. Hiding out among friendly Filipinos, Conner bided his time until the fever left him by reading from the gift book. "I was freed from consuming fear," he lived to report, "and my budding faith strengthened me." Armed with the courage of his reading, he formed a guerilla band of GIs, Filipino scouts and sympathetic natives. A scout brought an American flag, and though constantly harassed by Jap patrols, they kept it flying throughout the entire occupation. Now Clay Conner is an Indianapolis insurance man. He repays the gift of courage that faith brought him by working actively in community affairs. Church of Christ, 8th and Cedar. Services 1U a. m. and 8 p. m.; Thursday, 8 p. m.
