Two young men from Hanlon town were in another car pre ceding the Ford and one o them, Steve Rollefson, gave thi following account: "We were driving just ahead of the Ford when the Buick ap proached. The Buick started to cut across the middle line. Steve (Furness) was driving and headed for the shoulder to get out of the way. "I looked back and saw the Buick hit the car which followed us. The Buick hit the Ford on the east side of the highway." All the debris from the wreck age was on the east half of the paving and the cars both went into the east ditch. The front end of the Buick was torn open and the left side of the Ford was sheared off. Highway patrolmen were at the scene and helped speed the injured to the hospital in an ambulance.

(AP)—The wreckage of a light plane with three men aboard was fount Thursday morning in hilly, wooded country on a farm 1C miles south of here. All three men were killed. Victims of the crash were John Den Adel, 41, of Oskaloo sa, Iowa, president of the Na tionwide Motor Club; Walter Chesley, 43, of Montevideo Minn., and Harold Reichert, 51 North Mankato, Minn. Chesley wa's president- and Eeichert was board chairman of the National Family Insur ance Co. of St. Paul, Minn. Wreckage of the yellow, twin engine Beechcraft, strewn over a wide area, was spotted from the air about 5Vfe miles south of the community of Good Thun der, in Blue Earth County. Bodies of the victims . were found inside a part of the plane. The crash scene was on the Walter Hibbs farm. A widespread aerial and ground search for the plane had been under way since Tuesday a night, when the craft disappeared en route from Oskaloosa to ankato by way of Jefferson, Iowa. Jack Hammer of Oskaloosa, general manager of Nationwide, said Den Adel was at the con trols when the plane left here at 7:45 p.m. on a night that normally would take only about 45 minutes.

Thus once again Santa's stocking is overflowing. Contri jutions kept arriving right up to :he deadline. The giving ex ceeded all expectations especially in view of a some what slow start in the annua charity. The surge assured Miss Dorii Bruce at Family Service, Inc. of sufficient funds to provide for nore than just the minimum loliday cheer to the needy of the community. The $4,047 in cash is a record :opping last year's total by al most .$400. It was the first time he cash giving went over the $4,000 level. In addition, $714.07 was con tributed in the form of mer chandise from various iridi viduals, social and reiigiotu groups, and businesses. The Wilson School Cadette Gir Scouts gave a particularly fine roup of toys. The over-all total? then, is $4, '61.41.

(AP) — President Johnson has decided to ask Congress for higher rates on second and third:lass mail and is now reported jiving serious consideration to asking pay raises for Civil Serv- ce and postal workers. The decision on pay increases 'or Uncle Sam's 2.46 million civilian workers is one of the policy questions still facing Johnson in the final stages of his work on the federal budget. Budget Director Kermit Gordon said Wednesday that work on the budget was "over the hump." He steered clear of specific figures, but said the budget would be "very, very substantially below" the $108.5 billion originally asked by de partments and agencies for the BIG CHRISTMAS PACKAGE - What possibly could -the package holds best wishes from the Savas chil- Christie are the children of Mr and Mrs dren for a warm and happy Christmas and a good Savas, 1447 N.

One of Johnson's -decisions Wednesday was to ask for the second and Second-class lighcr rates on hird-class mail, mail includes newspaper and nagazincs, third-class consists mainly of advertising matter. In announcing the rate increase proposal at a news con- "erencc in Austin, Postmaster General John A. Gronouski said he requested increase would be modest. Gronouski said Johnson also vould ask for legislation to require volume users of [irst class mail to sort letters by ZIP code before mailing. He said this also vould be required of second and hird class volume mailers, but cgislation is unnecessary. Gronouski said the Post Office )cparlmcnt plans to hire more employes to cut down excessive overtime and increase efficiency. He did not say how big the ncrcasc would be. The postmaster Rcncral also said the closing down of the smallest post offices — fourth class — would he stepped up. In recent years these offices have jcen closed at the rate of 400 to >00 a year. Gronouski said offices would >n closed only in cases where !qual or better services could >e provided by rural or star routes.

Advices sent to the Pentagon aid two Americans—an Army officer and a civilian — were cilled and 50 injured. Also reported injured were an Austral- an officer and 15 Vietnamese. The blast was probably the work of the Communist Viet ]ong, who had threatened oul- ircaks of terrorism against Americans during the holiday. Up to five blocks away, windows were shattered and last- minute holiday shoppers :hronging the downtown part of the capital were injured. The bomb exploded on the ground floor of a seven-story building called the Brink Hotel, where several hundred U.S. officers live. The liming—6 p.m—was such that most of. the Americans living in the building were probably al home. A witness said "scores of Americans arc killed or injured." FJre broke out along the ground floor of the Brink officers' mess, which is beside the Continental Hotel and opposite the Caravelle Hotel. Smaller explosions continued after the huge initial blast which caused part of the officers' billets to collapse and smashed windows in every shop along five blocks.
