Don Vaughn, Holcomb High School Vocational agriculture instructor, brought in the good news this morning that John (Buster) Adams is in good condition at the Penrose Hospital, Colorado Springs, Room 412.

Don said the biceps in his upper arm was cut crosswise to the bone, and surgery to sew it up was to be performed today. He described lowering the the difficulty in 210 J pound youth from the high mountain area, and the delay in flying him out due to the hot, light air at that altitude. "We had to wait for a cloud cover before the plane could take off," Don said. He praised the cooperation of the sheriff, pilot, tourists and especially the student nurse who happened to be in the vicinity and gave emergency treatment to the boy. Buster is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Adams who farm near Holcomb.

Scattered showers skipped across the area to the south and west of Garden City during'the day Saturday, and Saturday night tlie showers were heavy and more general. In the Johnson, Ulysse s and Satanta areas, the rains reached cloud-burst proportions in spots. Rains which measured more than 4 inches in some rural areas along the Cimarron River watershed sent that usually-dry river to its highest stage in five years. Water at the Cimarron bridge south of Sublette on US83 was running five feet deep this morning — highest since July, 1958. The heavy rains fell to the west of the bridge, causing some flash flooding in those areas. At Ulysses, where the rain started about 8 p.m. Saturday, Mrs. H. F.

He also called A * * Saffels Fires Return Salvo In Garden City this morning, Dale Saffel s answered Gov. John Anderson's blast with counterattack. on Dale Saffels, Democratic nominee for governor last year, to re- .turn attorneys fees he earned while a legislator. Saffels, Garden City attorney, criticized Gagel last week over three acres of Gagel's Johnson County farm which will be taken for new construction of U. S. 69. Gagel announced that he is giving the land involved to the Methodist Church and the Johnson County YMCA. Anderson told a new s conference today that all aspects of the case, which was a campaign issue in the 1902 'governor's race between himself and Saffels, is being a | checked by attorneys. "Gagel is doing his best to clear "All of these acts which the governo r has accused me of today have been practiced by his it up—it will be cleared," he said, Then he added: "This harrangue by Saffels is party for years. So why is it nothing but politics.... wrong fora Democrat to do what members of his party have done?" Saffels asked. In commenting about the fees he received from doing State Highway Department work under the Docking administration, the local attorney stated: "Fees from the Docking administration were $700, and this was announced during the campaign last year and brought to the attention of the governor. As a matter of fact, when the Governor was attorney general he, as attorney for the highway commission, approved all fees. "This also was brought to his attention during a personal debate with me during his campaign. At that time I brought pute, adding "and the record of jit up myself." the ICC conveys no sense of re-1 assurance whatever concerning | An»wer|ng th» comment about bias and prejudgment." \ fees he received as a lobbyist Davidson's indictment of the i (i . urin S * e reicnl legislative ses- dent Kennedy's plan to avert a i Kennedy plan opened the commit-! si ° n .

"Let Saffels go into his bank account and give back all the fee he got from doing Highway Department work under the Docking administration. "Also the fabulou s fees he got as a lobbyist because he was a former legislation and a candidate for governor." Anderson said the fees he referred to as lohbyi: were earlier this year -when Saffels represented the oil industry during the legislative session. Saffels is a former member of the House of Representatives and was Hous e minority leader before returned to private practice this year. He did not seek re-election but later ran as a Democratic candidate for governor, losing to Anderson. Gov. George Docking was Kan sas 1 last Democratic governor 1 preceding Anderson in office. Anderson said he has asked Charles Henson, Highway Commission attorney l for a complete rundown on the case.

De Gaulle said that since France would never strlkft the first blow, such a noiuwgresslon pact would be need- ess. The president was referring to proposals advanced by the Russians in their recent talks with the United States and Britain that the limited nuclear test ban treaty by ;he three powers be tied into a European nonaggression mot. Premier Khrushchev has publicly asked for it, and ,he United States and Britain agreed to take up this sub- ect with their allies. He Gaulle commented: "Today, r r « n c e solemnly declared .hrough the voice of the president of the Republic that, there will never be any aggression by Franco. Our participation In a >act of nonaggression is hcnco iV'ithout purpose 1 ." He also rejected any European nonaggression pact a.i proposed >y the Soviet Union at the tost )an talks with the United States and Britain. Tlw test ban pact was Initialed last week. Addressing a crowded news conference, DC Gnull c s a,I d Franco will call for a gener- conference on disarmament ho- fore the end of this year. He declared that France will halt its own nuclear program only If the United States and tho Soviet Union agree to destroy their nuclear stockpile!!. He said the dtHarmamcnt conference should consider the destruction of stockpiles and the destruction of vehicles — such aa missiles and rockets—for delivering nuclear bombs, This Is in line with long-ostaib- llshcd French policy—that France would resign from the nuclear Couple Escapes Major Injuries A Garden City couple escaped serious Injury when their newly purchased 1003 automobile was nearly demolished In a two vehicle accident Sunday.

"U. has not lifted the atomic menace which weights on tho world," ho said. "None of the signers has renounced tho use Of atomic weapons and hence th* position of tho world had not boon changed In nny way." ' Do Gaullo said Franco, which Is just on the verge- of having its own complete nuclear arsenal, cannot holt Us efforts now. D« Gaulle noted that tho Moscow agreement does not prevent the throo major nuclear powers from continuing llw manufacture of those weapons. Ho said: "Tho agreement can bo denounced In throo month's.'It changes nothing In the terrible monane which the nuclear weapons of tho two groat powers hold over tho world." De Gaullo acknowledged that differences exist between Paris and Washington, But ho told a now s conference^ "Dosplt 0 the differences which exist,' to think that the United' States wishes lo do wrong to France, or that Franco wishes harm to tho United States, would bo a ridiculous absurdity." That was Ms reply to a question on the state of French-U.S. relations. Do Gaulle declared that "there's no use talking about scratches as Incurable wounds" In appraising tho state of French- American relations. Both Franco and the United States, ho said, have every reason to maintain th 0 Atlantic alliance (NATO) ns long as the Free world Is faced by the Soviet bloc which "Is animated by a dominating and detestable Ideology." The president, who In the past ha s been critical of many aspects of NATO, described the nlllanc* as an "elemental necessity" for both tho United Stales and , France. He i««d«d that both countries have assumed "capital rospon&l- bllitles" In the pact, with Washington furnishing nuclear armament and Paris furnishing its geographical situation. This wa s an Indirect reminder that France does, after all, possess strategically placed roal estate. De Gaullo blamed what h« culled journalistic bad will for exaggerating the differences between the two countries. He also said internal tension and Internal political needs within the United States might have contributed a rift. DC Gaulle conceded that France, in the aftermath of Nad occupation, Vichy collaboration and tho ravages of 'war, was dependent on the United State fl to avoid complete collapse, But things have materially changed In tho past 15 years, and now Franco, at peace for the first time in 25 years, Is even In a position to lend financial help to the United States if needed, he said.

More than 70,000 women, children and old peupl e had cleared out of the city by early morning and still they poured out, on foot and in cars, trains and planes. Some pushed carts filled with a few salvaged belongings. Others pedalled bicycles slowly through the debris. At government order, evacuation of everyone but men able to help in heavy work was being carried out. The recovery of a Belgian couple from the rubble Sunday after 55 hours of being buried alive raised some hopes that more living might atil| be found. Then rescue of the Yugoslav girl stirred another faint spa/k of hope. Premier Grlickov said the work of completely razing the city would tak e only a few days, starting Tuesday.
