Mississippi's Johnson Is Leading Pack In Primary Garden City Telegram Vol. 34 , GARDEN CITY, KANSAS, 67846, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 7, 1963 7c a Copy No, 235 JACKSON. Miss. (AP)—Former Governor J-P. Coleman and Lt. Gov. Paul Johnson braced today for a runoff campaign to see which will be the Democratic nominee for governor. Mounting unofficial returns from Tuesday's Democratic primary apparently made them the top two men in a four man race. With 1,433 of 1.882 precincts reported, Johnson had 110,987 votes to Coleman's 94,966. The number three man in the race, Charles Sullivan, had 79,153. Robert Mason of • Magee, a 65- year-old welder who runs for fun, had 1,704. The runoff election will be held garden— ing,.» with the editor Didn't need the alarm this morning — a loud clap of thunder did the job. But as often happens around here, it was all noise and little rain. Guess we needed a county fair going on such as Scott City, where rain, high winds, and some hail hit during a storm late yesterday afternoon. Local weather prophet Elihu Allnran noticed the wa-y the wind wa s changing this morning — going around against the sun — and says we could easily have some rain here by late afternoon or tonight. He earlier had predicted rain for this weekend, and is still holding to this outlook. * * * If it rains this evening, it will force the annual 4-H chicken fry inside at the Finney County Fairgrounds. This is the event where Finney County 4-H'ers show their appreciation for the cooperation from local businesses and other people by being host to a fried chicken, picnic-style meal. We always look forward to this event—especially our stomach. * * if With the wife taking a brief "vacation", we have made these observations • about the life of a bachelor: Even if we could cook, it would not be worth the dish-washing chore that follows. Never realized a woman did so much around the house. We used to make our bed in the Army, but have long since lost our "touch." Never knew our house could be so quiet — kids are gone also. With a chance for a night on the town, what do we do? Stay home, read a book, and wish the family would return. Hamilton County Fair Launched SYRACUSE — The Hamilton Sounty Fair got off this morning to a great start. All livestock, and other exhibits were in place by 9:30 a m. and judging began soon after.

Watch the Telegram for blue ribbon winners and pictures from the Hamilton County Fait- 'I [Aug. 29. Under the states prim ary system, a runoff matching the two top men is held whenever no one in a race can muster a majority. A 30-year-old Negro student at the University of Mississippi, James H. Meredith, figured large in the campaign. Johnson once barred Meredith from entering Ole Miss a few days before the desegregation crisis at the school that flamed into a campus riot last Sept. 30. Meredith also figured in the red hot race for state attorney general. Joe Patterson, bidding for re-election, apparently won over charge,, that he didn't try hard enough to keep Meredith out. It was • two-man race with Patterson opposed ( by State Sen. John McLauren,' who was Gov. Ross Barnett's spokesman at times during the Ole Miss upraor. The count, with 1,346 of 1,882 precincts reporting, gave Patterson 147,226 and McLaurin 103,855. No runoff will be required since it was a two-man campaign. In the lieutenant governor's race, Carroll Gartin forged far in front. The number two spot was held by Evelyn Gandy with Troy Watkins third. Democratic nominees will go on the general election bAllot Nov. 5. Republican opposition, including gubernatorial candidate Rubel Phillips, may pose a threat for the first time since Hie turn of the century. A flurry of Negro "vote-ins" heightened interest in the campaigning, at the last minute. The vote-ins came after a campaign based largely on each candidate's claims that he was best equipped to fight for segregation and against the Kennedy administration. Gov. Ross Barnett, ineligible under state law to succeed himself, honored Mississippi tradition by taking no public part in the campaign to name his successor, for governor, based his campaign largely on his part in the Ole Miss desegregation crisi s last fall. On one occasion, when Barnett was unable to reach the university in time to turn back Meredith, Johnson stood in for .the governor and personally barred the entrance to^ the- campus: * Johnson, 47-year-old Hattiesburg attorney, still faces federal contempt of court charges for block, ing Meredith after Meredith won a court order directing the state to admit him. Both Coleman and Sullivan charged the brief encounter was rigged and ineffective, because Meredith registered the next week. Many of the unreported votes were from heavy-voting urban precincts that frequently do not follow the pattern of rural precincts in the same counties. Coleman, 49, and Sullivan. 38, were expected to run well in the cities with big votes.

GOP Senators Expected to Ratify Treaty WASHINGTON (AP) - Senate Republican s have assessed the political implications of the limited nuclear test ban treaty and mosrare'-expected to Winamp voting for its ratification. An influential Republican senator, who asked not to be quoted by name, said he and a majority of his colleagues have reached the conclusion that "we can't afford politically to vote against this treaty." "There are a number of risks involved that I don't like to see us take as a nation," he said. "But if the Joint Chiefs of Staff say that, on balance, it i s acceptable—and I believe they will—we won't have any choice but to support it." He attributed ibis in part to what he called ti.° "mother vote," women who havo feared that nuclear fallout might i-°sult in deformed children and who believe the treaty may eliminate this danger. As a result the senator said, after extensive hearings beginning Monda'y he expects to see opposition virtually collapse. Democratic leaders have said they are confident of getting the necessary support of two-thirds of those voting. But they have been wooing GOP backing in order to attain overwhelming approval. Republican leader Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois said he has had 5,000 letters, divided equally for and against ratification. Dirksen told a news conference Tuesday he had the Senate Republican Policy Committee staff poll the administrative assistants of 42 senators. He said the staff found 20 whose mail favored ratification, 14 whose mail opposed it and 8 evenly divided. He said he had the survey made because of news stories saying White House mail was "lopsidedly" in favor of the treaty. Dirksen has delayed taking any stand on ratification Jackie Rushed To AF Hospital JFK's There, Too WASHINGTON (AP) — Mrs. John F. Kennedy, vacationing on Cape Cod, was suddenly hurried 'to the hospital at Otis Air Force Base today because of prospec tiY?j?r§nvslu.F.e ..bitth, of ..her. .third child. The President flew from here to be with her, The third Kennedy child had not been expected until later this month. Arrangements had been made for Mrs. Kennedy to come here for the birth. But suddenly the .President was notified four minutes before noon that his wife was being taken to the Air Force hospital near Hyannis Port., Mass, and 19 minutes later, the Chief Executive 'wa s off by helicopter from the Bulletin OTIS AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. (AP) - Mrs. John F. Kennedy, wife of the President, gave birth to their third child- a-son today at the bitse hospital. The White House In Washington reported the baby weighed 4 pounds, 10 Vi ounces. south lawn of the White House for Andrews Air Force Base in nearby Maryland, and a jet flight from there to Otis. j The first lady went to Squaw i Island on Cape Cod early in July with John Jr., 2Mi and daughter Caroline, 5'/a, to spend the interval preceding the birth of the new baby. There were expectations that she probably would remain until thg weekend after next, then come back here. The announced plans were that her child would be delivered at Walter Reed Army Hospital here. Tlie word that the baby apparently was arriving prematurely came when Presidential Press Secretary Pierre Salinger sudden- ly summoned a small group of newsmen to accompany the Pres ictent on the flight to Cap e Cod. The Kennedys second child, John.Jr., arrived prematurely on Nov. 25, I960. At that tim'e, Kennedy was president-elect and had started back for his temporary headquarters at Palm Beach, Fla., after having Thanksgiving dinner here witlh Mrs. Kennedy. He received word upon his ;ir rival at Palm Beach that Mrs. Kennedy had gone to the hospital here, and immediately boarded another plane and flew back, ar riving after the birth. Mrs, Kennedy has been spending the summer at Squaw Island, Cape. Cod. Weeks ago, her physician checked facilities at Otis Air Force Base for her possible use, if need be, but the White House insisted at the lime that her plans were to return her e and enter Walter Reed Army hospital f° r delivery of the baby. Salinger was asked whether he considered Mrs. Kennedy's early trip to the Oti s Hospital to be an emergency. "I would rather not characterize it," ho said. "She has been taken to the hospital and this was not foreseen." The President was notified of the rush trip to the hospital by Dr. Janet Travell, one of tho White House physicians, who is at Cape Cod. The President tfot a telephone call from Dr. Travell, Sullngfir said, four minutes* before noon. Hero, a jet powered helicopter was summoned to the White to rush Kennedy to Andrews Air Force Base for a jet flight to Otis Air Base.

An unconfirmed report said another rebel foroo had landed nl St. Marc, a port alxiut 40 miles northwest of Port. Au Prince and due southwest of Cap Haiticn, Haiti's second largest city.

Paul Vorna, the Invaders' spokesman in Santo Domingo, said earlier an Island off tha Haitian coast was the staging silo for the Invasion. However, a number of the officers of the Invasion force had been living In Santo Domingo. Tha Duvalier regime declared northeast Haiti—scene of the initial Invasion Monday—a war zone and imposed a nighttime curfew on Cap Haitlon.

Softball Show Planned to Buy Birds for Zoo Softball will be for the birds here Sunday night. A unique promotion to benefit Lee Richardson Zoo is planned at newly-lighled Fansler Field in | the southeast corner of Finnup i Park. ! Goal of the event is to help the ; zoo purchase a pair of macaws, i long wanted as a part of the ; growing tropical bird collection. • Purpose is to express the | thanks of local Softball groups to veteran park superintendent Claude Owens for his help in get- ; ting the field improved. I Some 400 girls, women, and i men are taking part in softball : here this summer, largest number in history. Owens and his park crew put in many hours enlarging and improving the expanded j diamond. I Thg new field is now the only I one in the entire state Ihil is reg- ulalion for the fast-growing game of slow-pitch softball. Its fences j are a minimum of 275 feet all the | way around. i Four games will be played Sun-| day night under the big new arcs. Each game will feature players! from a different segment of thej enlarged summer program. j A 50-cenl admission will be j I charged, and all umpires and j other officials will donate their | time. Every ct-nt of profit will go ; to Owens for the purchase of the j two macaws. > I The 7 p.m. opener will match; I two teams of girls of ages 9 and j i 10. They will play tee-ball, batting the softball off a rubber tee. I Four such teams have been play- I ing in the local league. i For purpose of that game, the ; Badgers and Sharks teams will be combined into a single unit. They will square off against the combined I3eaver-A n I e 1 o p e leams. Thai game will go five innings. Al 8 p.m. will come another game, this time a five-inning contest for Space League girls. They are of ages 11 through 15. Five teams have been playing in the Space League this summer.

Gary Palmer, local high I schooler, will coach Ihe Garden: learn. He has been practicing' , those boys throughout the week. ' The boys are all of ages 13 and! under. The game will be foj- five ' or six innings. 4 Final game will get under way at 10 p.m., and will be another ! big attraction. It is a men's slow-; pilch softball battle matching C'hrislerist-n Grain of Pierceville and (iarden City Co-op. Both clubs have already won berths in the stale tourney to be playi-d here later this month. Coop won the first round of league play here. Pierceville was a sur , '• prise winner of the district meet in which Co-op did not have to i compete. The two rivals split a double-1 header here last Sunday, dividing i games by close scores. I Final two games are expected! to bring a large turnout, of Pierce-; ville followers to tile park. j Before the final game gets un-! tier way, former mayor Harold' Fansler is tentatively scheduled to see "mound action." The big new field hag been named in his honor, lor his years of civic work in Garden City as city commissioner and school: board member. Fansler has been ; to throw a couple of slow- j pitch balls to add lo the festive I occasion. ' Macaws are about three or four tunes a.s large as parrots and' have brilliant plumage. Some of! Ihe colorful birds can talk, though not too fluently. They are natives of Central and South America, j One of Owens' biggest hopes \ fur the /.oo is to enlarge the trap- j ical bird section. It now has eight | parrots, three toucans, six cocka- j leels, eight canaries, 10 para- keels, six ringueck doves, and i four while doves. Cost for such a pair of macaws is estimated at some $1!)0. Some such birds are colored blue and gold, and others are of solid colors. They resemble parrots, and, are of the same family. ; Owens has indicated that such i a pair of macaws would greatly j help round out the tropical bird j group here. I The birds are stay at homes. A zoo in Dallas, for example, sets; its macaws on an outside perch each day. Others are allowed into' nearby irees. They never leave, ami always return to their at night.
