Garden City Telegram Vol. GARDEN CITY, KANSAS, 67844, FRIDAY, AUGUST 9, 1963 7c A Copy 8 Pagei No. 237 President's New Son Dies garden— Tension Abates On Wall Street ing... with the editor Telegram editorials bring results (sometimes angry ones). Last Saturday we pictured the sign along US83 south of town, which states that dumping along the highway is.illegal. We mentioned how trashy this enlrance to Garden City had become duo to trucks, trailers, and other vehicles hauling trash to the dump, and letting some fall and blow off along the way. Now come the Garden City Jaycees who are going to starl giving their time on Sundays to clean up along that stretch and j others around the city. More power to them! * * if A local resident has purchased j a rug which the seller said was j obtained from an Indian chief; who came up in this area to work ] in the beet fields. j Supposedly, Indians used to be! brought here as migrant work-' ers, and this caller was wondering just what tribe they were from. Anyone remember? * * * Kansas State University's Agricultural Experiment Station at Manhattan has published a new bulletin, "Chances for Precipitation in Kansas." It was published in cooperation with the U.S. Weather Bureau and the Department of C o m- merce. Accepting the fact that^ farmers must gamble on the j weather, the book gives them a little better chance at 'beating the odds. For instance it has a chart for various localities, and then tells you what the odds are for getting ram on cuch-and-such a date. As far as We know, Elihu Allman didn't collaborate on the publication, but we will go along with his batting average. By the way, expect some rain over the weekend — AUman has had it marked down for moisture for more than three months. We are starting to figure out some giraffe jokes to replace those about elephants when the fad fades off the teen-age scene. For instance: Q. Why do giraffes have such long necks? A. To connect their heads to their shoulders. or. . . Q. What did Tarzan say when he saw the giraffes coming? A. "What hapvened to the elephants?" if if * Telegram Woman's Editor Cheryl Walker today begins a series of pictures on her page of local back-yard swimming pools. Garden Citians are getting in the swim — with at least a dozen private pools located in and around the city. Cheryl took the pictures. Kennedy Rushes To Wife's Bedside NEW YORK (AP) — Tensions abated in Wall Street today following the final report in the first exhaustive investigation of securities market practices since the 1930s. Long-Distance Calls Disrupted Long-distance telephone service in and out of Garden City was disrupted for about four hours today due to a" cable-cut between ,Belpre and Stafford. The break caused all long-distance service to be cancelled except between towns in Southwest Kansas west of the cut. Locaj Southwestern Bell Man ager Bob Wright said it also nieant disruption of nearly all out-of-state calls since these are routed from here to Wichita — including calls to Denver and points west. Limited service to some leased lines — such as the teletype service to the Garden City Telgram — was resumed shortly after 10:30 a.m., and by 11:30 a.m. several other lines had been restored. Wright said .complete ser vice was expected by 12:30 p.m. He explained that a road grader operating in a rural area this side of Stafford caused the break.

Coroner's Jury Rules Suicide for Dr. Ward LONDON (AP) — A coroner's jury deliberated for only three minutes today and found that Dr. Stephen Ward committed suicide. The 50-year-old society osteopath and artist, a central figure in Britain's biggest political scandal of the century, died Aug. 3 of an overdose of drugs after 80 hours in a coma. munify found little unexpected Thursday in the third report on the two-year inquiry by n special staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission, Sharp criticism was leveled at high-pressure tactics used by some salesmen of mutual fund shares, notably part-timers said to have employed highly emotional appeals playing on "fear, pride and patriotism." The report also questioned sales fee collection patterns in the sale of contractual (installment) plans, methods of routing brokerage business by some funds and what it deemed potential conflict of interest situations that could favor insiders over shareowners. The federal investigators added to earlier recommendations for a closer SEC rein on self-regulation of organized securities markets, such as the New York and American Stock Exchanges. In a letter of transmittal to Congress, SEC Chairman William L. Gary indicated the next step will be a series of meetings with securities industry leaders. These would seek an accord on additional control,, and improvements, especially those within tho powers of the SEC, the stock exchanges, mutual fund industry and the National Association of Security Dealers, which oversees the over the counter market for unlisted stocks. Gary said he had no plans to ask for legislation at this session of Congress, but a couple of proposals would be advanced next year. A bill embodying recommendations based on the first special staff study report has passed the Senate and awaits House action. The latest report caused no immediate stir on the stock market, where prices inched higher late in the day. 4-H'ers Await Opening Today SUBLETTE - Haskcll County's 97 4-H'ers were anxiously awaiting the opening of the exhibit buildings today to see what ribbon they had been awarded.

GOP Wants JFK To Prove Claim WASHINGTON (AP) — Republicans are demanding President Kennedy prove his claim that the limited nuclear, test ban treaty will increase U.S. security. The proof will be sought when military and scientific experts are questioned in hearings on the treaty, said Republican leader Everett M. Dirksen of Illinois. In sending, th e pact to the Senate Thursday, Kennedy said the ban on atmospheric, space and underwater blasts "will assure the security of the United State s better than continued unlimited testing on both sides." The United States could make further progress in its weapons program if atmospheric tests were continued, the President said, but "so would the Soviet Union and, indeed, so could other nations." He continced in the 1,500-word Scotland Yard Hunting For Train Robbing Gang LONDON (AP)-Scotland Yard and police forces of 14 countries searched today for Ihe gang that pulled off history's greatest train robbery, but if they had any clues they kept them secret. Several British newspapers said the total loss in the ambushing Thursday of the Glasgow-London mail train may reach 3 million pounds ($8.4 million). A Scotland Yard spokesman said the police I are still working on the basis that | the haul was something over one j million pounds ($2.8 million). A tot*| of 35.000 pounds j ($98,000) was offered in reward! money by the Post Office and in- • surance companies. ! The gang of about 15 masked bandits halted the 10-coach "traveling post office" before dawn on; a lonely stretch of countryside 40 i miles northwest of London. The : bandits overpowered the two train crewmen in the locomotive, held postal sorters in the first two' coaches at ba'y, and escaped with i 120 bags of regislered mail, in- < eluding gems and quantities of banknotes. i "It was a brilliantly planned operation," said a senior police officer. It was the first successful robbery of a mail train in the. 125 years the traveling- post offices have been in operation Police were convinced that the gang- had been told when and where to strike by an employe of either Ihe Post Office or the government-operated railroads. The rest of tile train—containing some 70 unarmed postal sorters — was ignored. The richest haul came from the second coach which together with the coach ahead and the locomotive was uncoupled and moved a mile down the track to be unloaded. The coup was carried out in 15 minutes with split-second timing probably based on months of planning and spying on the line. Only afterwards did people living in the nearby village of Chedding. Ion remember men who came to take movies of the trains rattling by. The train engineer, Jack MUls, 58, ,wa g recovering in a hospital with eight stitches in his scalp. Two of the masked men jumped into his cab, clubbed him with iron bars and handcuffed him to the fireman, Dave Whitby. "Dave and I were ordered to lie face down in the grass as about 15 other men swarmed aboard the train and smashed open the two coaches with pickaxes," said Mills. "Two of the gang stood guard over Dave and I and said if we tried to make a move we would get another beating. "Dave and I lay very still. I'd had on e beating and didn't want another." Most London newspapers tarried editorials demanding an | overhaul of railroad security i measures. Some suggested that I mail trains carry armed guards. | None do at present. Much of th« loot was paper cur: rt-ncy being returned by Scottish ; banks to the London mint fo r re! pulping. Officials said the banks must bear that loss because the notes had not reached the cen- 1 tral bank. i About Treaty message: "It should be remembered that only one atomic test was required to complete the development of the Hiroshima bomb. Clearly the security of the United States—the security of all mankind—is increased if such tests ar e prohibited." Underground tests are not barred and the President has said they will be continued. Later talking to reporters, Dirksen said: "1 presume that the President, is fully prepared, through necessary witnesses, to fortify his averment that our security will be enhanced, instead o( impaired, by th e provisions of this treaty." The treaty was signed in Moscow Monday by the United States, Britain and the Soviet Union. To take effect it must be approved by two-thirds of the Senate. In Washington, Moscow and London Thursday, officials of 34 other nations signed the pact. It is expected lo pick up more signatures today and Saturday. The State Department says fi2 nations have announced they intend to sign and more than 100 are expected to do so eventually. After Kennedy sent the treaty to the Senate it was referred immediately to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee where pub- lie hearings will start Monday in the big caucus room of the Old Senate Office Building Secretary of State Dean, j flanked by Undersecretary W. ; Averell Harriman, who negotiated ! the agreement in Moscow, and! ' C. Foster, director of In marked contrast to the trng< ic occasion, the presidential hell copter settled doifli in the bright .sunshine. It was the end of a sad journey for the chief executive to the bedside of his wife, who had been through two days of worry after the Caesarcan birth of 'Ivor third child. The President completed his journey to hospital in a big white convertible. Contrary to his-usually informal, open manner of travel on Cape Cod, the President rode concealed beneath the car'i black canvas top. He and his brother had to pass a battery of cameramen a s they walked swiftly up the few steps to tho hospital wing. Members of the staff, patients, doctors and nurses craned out of windows in adjoining barracks buildings to catch a glimpse of the President as lie arrived, this time in sadness instead of in the joyful mood that had followed the first hours of th e birth of young Patrick. The President looked tired. His fac e was unusually lined after the long ordeal that began with his dramatic race from the summer White Wednesday and concluded with his sad overnight vigil at the Children's Medical Center in Boston. Mrs. Kennedy had retired Thursday night buoyed by word from tlie President that their new baby was showing improvement, The President and Mrs. Kenne dy spent more than two hours together. The President faced ahead of him the meeting with tiwo oth or children, Caroline, 5 r /j and John Jr., 2'/<!, who had expected and hoped for a new baby brother. After his visit with the First Lady, the President departed with his two brothers—Ally. Gen, Robert and Sen. Edward — presumably bound for the summer White House on Squaw Island, off Capo Cod. Wh'lte Hous» press secretary Pierre Salinger said other meni- b'Srs of the family had been with the First Lady before the President arrived. Her mother, Mrs. Hugh D. Auchincloss, had been at her bedside much of the time since tho birth. Private funeral services will lie held at 10 a.m. Saturday with Richard Cardina] Cushing, Roman Catholic archibishop of Boston, celebrating the "Mass of the An- Ms" in his private chapel. The Mass is a special ceremony for baptized babies. Burial will be in the Kennedy plol in Holyhood Cemftery in nearby Brookline, Mass, [t will he the first burial in the plot. At Otis, Salinger said death was attributed to hyaline membrane, disease, a membrane infwlion in j the lungs and feared among pr< mature babies.
