Could Be Record SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (AP) —Traffic officer Thomas L. Needham spotted four pairs of feel dangling from the trunk of a smali foreign car Thursday. •> He stopped the car for a more careful count. He found four Cub Scouts in the trunk, nine more in the car, plus their den mother, Mrs. Carl Bunnell, the driver. A total of 14. "I didn't have the heart to issue a citation," said the understanding Needham. He called the station, which sent a squad car around to carry some of the surplus home. So Easy SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP)— It was 14-year-old Joe Borst's first trip to the golf course. He looked at the 160-yard par three hole at Synder Park, took out his driver, swung at the ball and watched it bounce into the hole for an ace on his first golf shot. The excited youth raced to the club house to tell pro George Smith. "What will I do now," he said. "You'd better quit, son," quipped Smith. "You can't get any better."

Ohio (AP)-John Volz, a defendant on the losing end of a civil suit, had just one question for Municipal Court Judge Wilbur L. Shull after the judge ordered him to pay a gas station operator $86.31. The question: Was he, Voltz, entitled to trading stamps for the amount he had to pay? The answer: No. Big Rescue Job By Little Girl FAYETTEVILLE, Tenn. (AP)Four-year-old Barbara Strong, her hair in flames, carried her 6- month-old brother to safety and led another brother outside when their fire destroyed home Thursday. A third brother, Randy, 2, wa Mills without incident today after the third straight night of violence in this small industrial city. Following a pattern establishec ( earlier in the week, only a few strikers showed up at the mills heavily guarded North and South Henderson plants to jeer anc shout at incoming workers. Rifle shots peppered the plants again Thursday night until sec ond-shift employes departed un der police and highway patro guard. No serious injuries were report ed among the workers or the large number of shouting pickets gathered outside the mill gates. Operation of a second shift at the plants, struck Nov. 15, has brought criticism from Gov. Luther Hodges, who said he had warned the management it might mean bloodshed. Shortly before the second shift left at 11 p.m., highway patrol- four-room men fired two parachute flares over the South Henderson plant. trapped inside and burned to death. The parents, Mr. and Mrs. L T. Strong, Negro tenant farmers were across a field when they saw the fire. Their only daughter hac rescued the baby, Gary Lee, anc Ray, 3, by the time they reachec the burning house. The father smothered the fire in Barbara's hair. She was hospitalized with burns on the hands, arms and head. Earth Tremors NEW YORK (AP)—Two earth tremors strong enough to cause damage in inhabited areas were recorded on Fordham University seismographs early today. They centered 2,300 miles from New York in a direction not immediately determined. They were at 4:39 and 4:44 a.m. EST. The Weather COUNTY FORECAST — Generally fair and continued warm this afternoon; partly cloudy and colder tonight and Saturday; scattered light showers tonight; high this afternoon 70s; lows tonight 38-42; highs Saturday near 60.

Under the brilliant light of the flares and the watchful eyes of the patrolmen, the workers left without incident. In Raleigh, Gov. Hodges, himself a former textile official, disclosed he had warned mill president, John D. Cooper Jr. April 16 against opening the second shift. Cooper, who started the second shift April 20, told Hodges that to close the shift would be "an absolute surrender to force and violence." Gov. Hodges said he released details of his letter to Cooper "to remind Cooper of his personal responsibility for the present difficulty." Cooper said previously he would close the mills permanently if he had to close down any of the shifts. The strike began after the company insisted on elimination of an arbitration clause from a new contract with the Textile Workers Union of America. It apparently had been settled April 17. Union strikers were to be rehired on the second shift and a promised third shift. When they arrived Monday, they said, only 30 jobs were available. Since then, the mills have been ;argets of rifle fire. A force of 100 highway patrolmen has been recalled. Osmo Loved Chickens Well, BHdgeS But Loved Them Unwisely SAN FRANCISCO (AP)—Osmo on her overseas flights. Last week was an ocelot. You might say he she left him in care of Ray Moser, loved club-fed chickens not only a friend across the ba y in Berk ' unwisely, but too well. • y ' If that shakes you we're sorry. This story really doesn't have a plot, but it does have some inter- isting people. It has the Shah of Iran, a pretty airline stewardess, a sad scientist —plus mass murder at midnight and sudden vengeance. And, of course, Osmo, a catlike Brazilian with golden fur and sharp teeth who loved to roam at night. The Shah presented Osmo to Miss Ellen Forseth last year in appreciation for her services on Pan American during his visit here. Miss Forseth made a pet of Osmo but needed an ocelot-sitter Turnpike Net Up Over A Year Ago WICHITA (AP) - March net revenues on the Kansas Turnpike •eached $311,163.90, up 55 per cent over the same month a year ago, General Manager Gale Moss reported today. Toll revenues of $393,995.27 were up 27.62 per cent by comparison. Operating revenues, with cafe and service station royalties added, reached $432,023.28, up 30.2 jer cent. Operating expense to- aled $120.859.38, down 7.6 per ^ent from the year-ago total. "Tolls during the first half of April are substantially above the same period a year ago," Moss added, "so there is no indication hat our record of constant traffic ncreases each month will be broken." For the first quarter this year, Moss added, net operating revenues totaled $744,792.14, higher by 66.5 per cent than for the same 1958 quarter. Osmo escaped. Enters now the sad scientist: Dr. Lewis W. Taylor, professor of poultry husbandry at the University of California. He has spent more than five years developing club-toed white Leghorn chickens. Taylor said club toes show the chicken disease. has He an has inherent lethal been breeding them for club-toes to learn how to eradicate the ailment. Sunday night something got into Prof. Taylor's genetic research plant and slaughtered 14 of his highly prized chickens. Plant supervisor Noburo Inouye was asked to lie in ambush for the invader. With a small caliber rifle, he bagged the intruder with one shot Tuesday night. It was Osmo. It's doubtful that a small bronze plate could report Osmo's tragic story. But Prof. Taylor is relieved. "I wasn't wiped out" he said. "We still have about 14 club-toed white leghorns left." Miss Forseth? Out of the city — and presumably unaware of Osmo's fate. Would Give States Highway Refunds WASHINGTON (AP) - A bill to reimburse Oklahoma and other states for turnpike and freeway mileage incorporated into the federal interstate highway system was introduced yesterday. The states could use the money either for new construction or for conversion of turnpikes to free roads under terms of the measure by Rep. Ed Edmondson (D-Okla.). His bill, a modified version of one by Chairman Charles Buckley (D-NY) of the House Public Works Committee, would provide pay- federal agency for quick approval ment of approximately 78 million - •• • dollars to Oklahoma over a 15- year period beginning in 1961. A Meeting LOS ANGELES (AP) — While cargo-handling for 32 ships at Los Angeles harbor came to a standstill Thursday, Harry Bridges held a three-hour secret meeting with 3,500 stevedores. The fiery president of the International Longshoremen's and the Warehousemen's Union flew from New York to explain his testimony before the House Un-American Activities Committee. He claimed he was misquoted in news accounts saying he would seek aid from both Communist and free nations if longshoremen go on strike. Bridges promised to .make transcripts of his testimony available to union members "so they'll know what I said and didn't say." Another issue was the sudden resignation of ILWU Regional Director Peter Moore, a longtime Bridges supporter.

The 40 acres was part of a former air base. The FAA approved its transfer from the City of Liberal to the Liberal Board of Education.

Republican Atty. Gen. John An derson and Democrat Eugene Da vis, whom Anderson removed twice from the state payroll as ABC attorney in two days, con- 'erred for 40 minutes yesterday. "I think it likly a solution will be worked out to the satisfaction of all concerned," said Davis, a ormer U. S. district attorney. He has been serving for the last two years as attorney for W. E. Murphy, ABC director. Anderson said, "I think all iroblems have a solution and 1 hink there will be a solution to his one." They refused to tell newsmen the nature of their discussion. A reliable source who declined to be quoted by name said an agreement apparently had been reached. The source said it would call for Democratic Gov. George approve Anderson's of J. Richard Foth, Docking to appointment 33, Topeka Republican, as an as sistant attorney general for the ABC office. Anderson then would drop any further objections to Davis serving as Murphy's attorney. Amendment May Lose Its Southern Support labor bil some Sen. John Stcnnis (D-Miss) told a newsman lie was having second .noughts on the amendment and The amendment, by Sen. John L, McClellan (D-Ark), was adopted" 47-4C Wednesday, largely on the votes of Republicans and Southern Democrats. A host of other amendment pro posnls awaited action as the scna tors moved into what most hopei would be the final day of dcbat on the hotly disputed measure. Remaining to be settled ar three major issues: 1. Whether to write In a prov. sion strengthening the Taft-Harl ley law sections aimed at seconc ary boycotts. 2. Whether to Insert a provislo; sharply limiting organizations picketing. 3. Whether to try to modify o knock out the bill of rights amend ment, The Senate acted on 16 amend ments in an 11-hour session Thurs day. One of those adopted would for bid a railroad, trucker or other interstate common carrier from agreeing with his employe not to haul products of another firm in volved in a labor dispute. The Teamsters Union has insisted on such "hot cargo" clauses in most of its contracts. Sen. John F. Kennedy, chief sponsor of the bill, said he thought that amendment would reduce the demand for a ban on other kinds of boycott. But McClellan said he would seek one. Stennlg. made, his comments about the bill of rights amendment after a huddle of Southerners with Majority Leader Lyndon B. Johnson (D-Tex). He said he believed some Southerners did not understand the full mplications of the amendment. -Ie said some of its provisions— ncluding one to give the secre- ,ary of labor broad authority to seek court injunctions—have been :ompared with those in the 1957 civil rights bill, which Southerners "ought bitterly.

Lamb Insured Payment Plan, adv Editor'B Note—Sunday the clock will oe set ahead an hour, us It has been each spring lor gome years. The annual mlxups can be expected; Late lo work, late to school . . . just lata in general. But what if you lived on the bordwr between time zones—would It bo easier to check each time every day, as It came up? By TOM HENSHAW THE ASSOCIATED PRESS For most of us the annual ritual of converting the clock to Daylight Saving Time occasions a brief interlude of confusion while man readjusts his life to his timing machine. But, for people living in places !ike Blountstown, Fla., or Lakin, Kan., or Huntington, Ore., such confusion is normal^ the year round and has been for so long that it's pretty generally ignored. Blountstown, Lakin and Huntington are towns situated literally on the borderline of time, places •where the time zones come together and where clock-watching is a necessary, time-honored custom. Life on the edge of time can have its inconveniences—like the trains that leave before they arrive—but it has its advantages, too, especially to people like Bart Knight. Thanks to the Eastern-Central time line, Knight, who is prosecuting attorney for both Calhoun and Liberty counties in Florida, canj do the impossible. He can be in two places at the same time. Folks in Lakin, Kan., (Mountain) can drive 20 miles to catch a 7 p.m. movie in Garden City (Central) and get back to their homes in time to watch many of the big evening television programs. The trains that leave before they arrive do so in Dodge City, Kan. The Santa Fe Railroad schedules change from Central to Mountain time. A westbound train can heave into the station at 3 p.m. CST and leave at 2:05 p.m. .VIST. Occasionally a town will vote itself into another time zone. But a number of towns have turned down the opportunity. Syracuse, Kan., (Mountain) talked about it a few years ago but decided against it because its stores, open an hour later, were attracting customers from places like Johnson (Central). As recently as April 7, folks in Lakin, Kan., voted not to shift from Mountain to Central. Lakin's Mayor Monte Canfield explained: "Most of the opposition to any time change comes from the farmers, who like the situation as it is. "It gives them a chance to shop in nearby towns early in the day and then come to Lakin or Syra cuse later in the evening for implement parts and so forth." Besides, added the mayor, his son, Lanny, 10, wouldn't stand for any change, either. "Lanny is allowed to stay up until after the 10:30 CST news program, which gets him to bed by 9:30 MST. If he had to go to bed on CST he would miss some of his favorite programs. "So I have orders to vote for MST and I expect I will since that is about the most logical argument that has been advanced yet." tnry of labor could e'nforce it with ;ourt injunctions. New Assistant May Be Given Broader Duties WASHINGTON (AP) - Undersecretary of State C. Douglas Dillon reportedly will be named chief assistant to Secretary of State Christian A. Herter. He may have much broader duties than anyone who filled such a position in the past. Dillon, 49, Is now In charge of foreign economic affairs. In his new position he may be allowed to continue direct supervisions of the government's miiltibillion dollar foreign aid program as well as taking over political problems which Herter formerly handled as chief assistant to John Foster Dulles. The added duties for Dillon are being considered by Horter as part of a reshuffle of top officials. Officials said one shift already decided upon will return career diplomat Raymond Hare from Cairo, where he is ambassador to Egypt, .0 become assistant secretary of state for the Middle East and South Asia. Gunshot Fatal To An Ottawan iff , • A 59-year-old Ottawa man was bund dead last night in the back- 'ard of the Lawrence Kimball lome, 813 S. Pine, with a .22 cali- )er rifle laying beside him. The man, Raymond Terry, had i .22 caliber bullet hole in his ight temple, apparently self-in- \ flicted, authorities said. Terry, who was employed by a ocal lumber company, was found at about 6:30 p.m. by Kimball, when he came home, Neighbors reported hearing a shot shortly after 1 p.m. Local authorities theorized hat Terry came to the Kimball louse, forced the locked door, took (imball's single-shot rifle and killed himself. They, however, are checking farther on the fatal hooting. Sheriff Max Gllmore said >araffin tests of the man's hands lad been taken and sent to To- leka's KBI laboratory.
