Garden City Telegram Vol. 34 GARDEN CITY, KANSAS, 67846, TUESDAY, AUGUST 6, 1963 7c A Copy 8 Paqei No. 234 Invasion Hits Haitian Coast SANTO DOMINGO. Dominican Republic (AP)— A report circulated here today that a band of Haitian exile invaders, a'.mingito lopple the terrorist regime of dictator Francois (Papa Doc) Duval- irr, have captured Cap Haiticn, Haiti's second largest city. The report was unconfirmed. Cap Haitian, a port city of 25,garden— ing ... with the editor We've been receiving a few calls of late from residents who have been star-gazing and noticed a satellite moving across the sky. We've spotted one on a couple of evenings in the last two weeks, but we are stumped when asked to identify them. We know there are several circling up there, and haven't tried to keep track. Some may be Russian-built, but from here you can't tell the difference. In the "early days" when satellites were big news, the wire services carried time schedules so you could tell when and where to look. But now that these space craft are "old hat", all the fun has gon e out of watching them sail over. In discussing water usage hers with City Manager Doane Wiley, he recalled seeing a recent story out of Hays where that city had reached a new daily peak usage of more than 2 million gallons. Garden City, which is smaller than Hays, is topping the 7-million gallon mark. No wonder our pressure gets low along about late afternoon and early evening. Dcane had a new worry this morning wher it appeared a bearing may be. going out on one of the city wells. With the present hot weather, los s of a single well could really hurt. Residents could help by watering during early morning hours or lat e at night and all city water users should be reminded to turn off sprinklers when the fire whistle sounds. The house you save may be your own, * * * A small world it is. A few .minutes before deadlina Monday, the Telegram called the Akron, Ohio, Daily Beacon-Journal to find out how the local entry — Dennis Devaney of Syracuse — did in Saturday's 26th annual all-American Soap Box Derby. Th e long-distance call was placed to the newspaper's sports department. Typewriters were humming and phones were ringing in the big-city office. A very helpful reporter on the sports staff there scanned through the list of 239 entries to tell the Telegram how its area boy did. The list was in fine six- point type, so the reading took several minutes. Turned out the reporter was brand-new there: his first day of work on the Akron daily. Sports Editor Bob Greer made the call for the Telegram. In closing the conversation, Gieer invited the reporter Harry Shapiro, to Garden City for a cup of coffc e at his expense. i Turns out they have a common | acquaintance. Shapiro formerly reportei at Grand Junction, Colo. One of his friends there was a sport s editor for whom Greer worked at one time at University of Colorado in Boulder. * * * Some readers may have noticed that in yesterday's accounts of the Soap Box Derby we called the local entry from Syracuse both "Dennis" and "Carl." ! Well his name is actually ! Carl Dennis Devaney. We knew j him here as Dennis, but when we | checked on the race results at \ Akron they listed him as Carl. So guesjj we were both right. Five Donors Reach Two | Gallon Mark in June Five donors made it to the i two-gallon mark and five others . iv.Hched the one-gallon list when ! they gave b'ood tt the June i visit of the Red Cross Bluodmo- bile. New members of the t w o- gallon groito are George T. Adams. George Purnell, Donald M. Moore, Robert L. Long and Ed A in G. Knoll. One-gallon givers are William Hedges, Wallace E. Wilson, Kenneth Highberger, Mrs. W. E. Jameson, and Jack L. McAtee. J'he Bloodmobiic will be In Garden City on Sept. 25. Reports Soy 000, is 90 .miles north of Port Au Prince, Haiti's capital. Duvalier. the voodoo-preaching physician turned strongman, acknowledged Monday night there was an invasion on Haiti's north coast. The Dominican frontier forces and navy were alerted after news of the invasion and Haiti charged that some of the invaders came from adjoining Dominican Republic, which shares the island of His- paniola with Haiti. Dominican President Juan Bosch conferred with his armed forces chiefs at the national palace. The newspaper Listin Diario reported that a number of Haitian officials have crossed into the Dominican Republic seeking asylum. Some Haitian soldiers also reportedly fled across the border. Taitian exile sources in Santo Domingo said at least 500 well- armed men, trained foj- guerrilla warfare, landed Monday at Fort Liberte, 18 mile s east of Cap Hait- ien. and quickl'y captured the towns of Fort Liberte, Derac, Trou and Limonade. There were rumors that another force of exiles landed on Haiti's long coast in the night. Cap Haitien was placed on a war footing and a curfew imposed. Gen. Leon Cantave, chief of the Haitian armed forces for five months in 1957, led the invasion under the banner of the National Democratic Union. Cantave told an interviewer recently he was not interested in becoming president, only in ousting Duvalier. Paul Verna, a former Haitian diplomat representing the National Democratic Union, said an unidentified island off the coast was used as a staging area for the invasion. Some of the invaders were identified as former Haitian army officers who had been living in Santo Domingo. Verna said the rebels expect to form a military-civilian, provisional grovernment in north Haiti. Cantave, a career officer, became chief of the Haitian army in December 1956 after the overthrow of President Paul E. Magloire. He quit on May 25, 1957, to avoid involvement in his country's turbulent politics, and has been in exile for six years. Duvalier, 54, a Negro country doctftr, became president o^ Haiti in 1957. He has survived strikes, violence and a dozen plots against his life. He gave himself an illegal second term, extending until 1967, after a rigged election in 1961. His constitutional term expired last May 15, and underground opponents vowed to assassinate him.before then. But he survived and last month his forces killed the two chief leaders of the underground brothers Clement and Harry Barbot. 4-H Activities Kick-Off Fair In Scott County SCOTT CITY — Scott County 4-H activities kicked-off this county's annual fair today with judging of exhibits, at 9:30 a.m. The event — today, Wednesday and Thursday — is expected to draw one of the largest turn-outs ever.
