FIGHT IN FIFTH DISTRICT Court Rebuff to Impresario's Wife London (AP)-The high court of London has told Mrs. Norman Gram that the money her husband, made out of selling his Picassos and other modern art works is his money and her claim to share in it as communal property is invalid. Gram, 49-year-old California jazz impresario who now lives in Switzerland and London, sold 47 paintings at Sotheby's auction house Tuesday night for the pound sterling equivalent of $1,951 ,-1 200 . Gram and his 26-year-old German-born wife, Hannelore, have been involved in divorce proceedings brought in Switzerland. Mrs. Gram had asked the high court to impound the collection on jjorrnan Granz grounds that she was entitled to a communal share The court said no, holding that Switzerland does not recognize such communal property claims, as California does, for example. The Granzes were married in Las Vegas in 1965. • • • Divorce for Wife of Millionaire L OS ANGELES <AP )— The fourth wife of David May II, the department store heir, has won a default divorce after / testifying that her husband wanted items in his house left exactly where he had placed them. "He woidd argue with me even if I moved an ashtray, saia Mrs. Sandra Rehn May, 32 years old. The couple married in Reno, Nev., tn 1962 and separated last January 8. The 55-year-old May agreed to pay $2,000 a month alimony and $1,000 monthly child support under terms of a property settlement. • • • Senior Marine General to Retire Washington (AP)—A senior Marine general whose star rose under the former secretary of defense, Robert b. % McNamara, has put in for retirement. He is Lt. Gen. Victor H. Krulak, 55 years old, passed over for Marine commandant and considered a leading contender for two other top posts until they were filled earlier this month by The White House said President Johnson is nominating Krulak for permanent rank of lieutenant general when he retires about June 1. For the last four years, Krulak has comma uded Fleet Marine Forces in the Pacific with headquarters in Honolulu. The Pentagon said his successor would be Lt. Gen. Henry W. Buse, 56 years old, a native of Ridley Park, Pa. Buse now is chief of staff at Marine headquarters. • ® • Heart Transplant Expected Soon P ITTSBURGH (AP)—Dr. Christian Barnard says he may perform his next heart transplant in about six weeks- Barnard, who performed the worlds first heart transplant in South Africa, said it’s “not such a difficult operation” and will probably become more widely used. “Any good heart sugeon can do it, and the technique win become simplified and improved with experience/’ he said. • • • Colorful Canon Kir , 92, Dies Dijon, France (AP)-The Rev. Felix Kir, the iamous Canon Kir who has been mayor ot Dijon for 24 years, died yesterday in a hospital. He was 1)2 years old. Colorful, popular Canon Kir had been a World War II resistance hero, had received Nikita S. Khrushchev in his City Hall, and been immortalized in a mixture of white wine and Creme de Cassis called a “Kir.” Canon Kir fell on a stairway 10 days ago a his home. . . t >,„. Born January 22, 1876, in a village in Burgundy, Canon Kir became a country priest street corner evangelist, and served as a com bat chaplain in World War I Lt Gen. Victor Krulak The Rev. Felix Kir (Continued From Page 1.) vor Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York as the presidential nominee see the Reynolds-Moore campaign as an anti-Rockefeller move. They point out that both in the past have been identified with the party’s right wing and that both were avid supporters of Barry Goldwater four years ago. Rockefeller backers claim that many of those in the Reynolds- Moore camp would prefer the nominee to be Gov. Ronald Reagan of California, conld accept Richard M. Nixon, but find Rockefeller anathema. Moore, who attended the county party convention last night at the Hotel President—where the election of the 98 delegates to the fifth district convention and of 60 Jackson County delegates to the Fourth Congressional district convention was certified— said the Rockefeller supporters were wrong. Moore said his and Reynolds’s campaign was nonideological and merely reflected the compe titive spirit of the party here. “I see it,” Moore said, “as a movement by those workers in the party who want to create more of a competitive atmosphere. It. has spontaneously developed in recent days to the point where it is now generally known. “I would be mad as hell at anyone who introduced a resolution against Rockefeller or anyone else at the district convention. Our campaign is not that kind of thing. Rockefeller isn’t I even a candidate.” Supporters of both sets of candidates cannot be broken down j info neat philosophical pack-! .ages, because the overriding! factor for many is their desire! for a national Republican vie-1 tory in 1968. Also, there have been indications that several other persons who otherwise might support Reynolds and Moore are considering running for delegate themselves against Berkley and Brookfield. If any of them does, 1 it would be likely to damage the; Reynolds-Moore campaign. The Berkley-Brookfield camp, ! now anyway, contains some : persons w'ho were strong Goid- j I water backers in 1964 who would, if necessary, support; Rockefeller. It contains many! Nixon backers and nominal Nixon backers, and it con-: tains all the Rockefeller support-! ers among the 98 fifth district 1 delegates. I A quick rundown of the 98 shows Berkley and Brookfield favored roughly 3 to 2. With the district convention a month away, both camps will be work- can majority to the Missouri House for the first time in many years—if there is unity. At the county convention last night the delegates from Jackson County to the fourth and fifth district conventions were certified in routine form without incident.

Gaylord Nelson said yesterday a measure designed to persuade young men to enter and stay in farming through a long-term, low-interest loan program is needed to save the family farm. The Wisconsin Democrat, sponsor of the Senate version of the young farmers investmen act, told a Senate agriculture subcommittee the trend toward older and older farm operators continues for many more years, the family farm wili cease to exist.” \ Rep.

The two alleged that the heirs reneged on a written agreement made December 8, 1962, under which they were to get 10 per cent of the value of the estate in exchange for information and assistance supplied by them. The two, Miss Mafalda Davis and Emad Ash- tiany, seek $1,230,000 in damages. Named as defendants are Yolanda and Rafael Lovaton of Miami Beach, Fla., heirs of the dictator, and their attorney, Francis N. Rosenbaum - <ni of Washington. Rafael Trujillo Horry H. Lipsig, attorney for the two New Yorkers said that because of the information supplied by his clients, the heirs were able to obtain "upwards of $900,000 for the Trujillo estate. national convention will be chosen by 60 delegates elected at. ward and township meetings: Monday night in Jackson County and by 62 delegates from the other counties. j Missouri is allowed 24 dele-, gates and 24 alternates to the > national convention, which be-* gins August 5 at Miami Beach. Fla. Two of each are chosen at conventions in each of the state’s 10 congressional districts. The other four of each are chosen at-large at the state convention, which will be June 29 at the Hotel Muehlebach. Statewide Republican leaders have been particularly anxious to avoid a party ideological bloodletting over national convention delegates. They feel that this year, with ] Lawrence K. Ro«s running for governor and U. S. Rep. Thomas j B. Curtis running for the Senate, they have for the first time in many years a chance to capture both seats and want the party unified and working. They also believe they can elect a Republi (Continued From Page 1.) anticipated revenue from a $10© a plate dinner May 11 at. which Bob Hope will perform. Powell said pledges and contributions were already approaching the $350,000 figure. A bright future for the Royal after the Exposition building mortgage is retired was predicted by Roderick Turnbull, president of the American Royal association and agricultural editor of The Star. “The fact is,” he said, “we have had such a busy time at the Royal the last few years that it is difficult to I mow where to draw the line on telling about it. “This is no longer a two- weeks-every-fall proposition. It is a year around deal. It has become a big service institution for Kansas City and, if we do get on a sound financial basis, there’s hardly any limit on what can be accomplished/’ Turnbull said the last American Royal Live Stock and Horse show was the second largest ever presented here, exceeded only in 1966. “I actually believe,” Turnbull added, “we will have even better attendance this fall. To the extent that our facilities permit, I think we will see a gradual, but continuous grow th in the show.” The Darby award, calling him “Mr. American Royal,” was presented by John B. Gage, former mayor. Gage said his being selected to present the award was one of his greatest honors. “Mr. Darby’s leadership in the American Royal has included president, vice-president, chairman of the board, chairman of the board of governors and now chairman emeritus of the board of governors,” Gage stated. “He gives constant and personal attention to his farms and livestock. He is an industrialist and the head of a companv he started himself and has operated successfully. “He is a statesman, soldier and former United States senator and has been engaged in many humanitarian enterprises. Through the years he has been a good friend to all of us. He has contributed liberally his time and money ... We would like to pay tribute to him for the long years of devoted service to the cause we are all so deeply interested in ** Darby said he was proud of and grateful for the award. “I have always felt the American Royal was my best opportunity for public service since agriculture and especially livestock is the basis of our economy. 1 have always thought” that the American Royal was the best medium to improve our economy.” Herbert H. Wilson, chairman of the board of governors, said the Royal’s importance was reflected in the millions of dollars of agriculture business transacted in this area each year. He said many other businesses and forms of entertainment could not exist without the successful agricultural economy. Elected to 3-year terms on the board of directors: Clarence O. Cox, W. E. Maurer, Robert Q. Sutherland, W. T. Berry, Roderick Turnbull, John L. Erickson, A. F. Fowler, Charles R. Gardner and Paul H. Henson. William P. Harsh and Ernest B.

KENiefLAUDS HEARNES WORK (Continued From Page 1.) all citizens, Kennedy said, hi eluding opportunities for jobs and education. Welfare, Kennedy said, is not the answer for the future of the United States. Kennedy said he was pleasec to be in the state of Governor Hearnes, whom he called one of the great governors in the nation. Missouri, he said, should be very proud of Hearnes. The senator met a small group of Democrats at a restaurant after the shopping center speech and he again referred to tlie fact that he was pleased to be in Hearnes’s territory and meet all his relatives. Absent were the governor, other state officials, and the statewide candidates. Kennedy was introduced by state Sen. Albert Spradling, jr., of Cape Girardeau after John Glenn, former astronaut, who is travelling with! Kennedy, made a brief talk. | On the Vietnam war, Kennedy said he is opposed to this coun-1 try’s withdrawing unilaterally j from there. But in the last anai-: ysis, Kennedy said, the South; Vietnamese have to win the war for themselves. “They’ve got to be willing to carry their burden,” Kennedy said in snggesting that the South Vietnamese should pnt their government in order, “or it can’t he won. That’s my policy. That’s what 1 stand for.” Kennedy started his talk by asking students to lower their placards which supported Sen. Eugene McCarthy for the presidency. Some McCarthy signs were showing but most of the signs protested the recent dismissal of eight faculty members here at Southeast Missouri college. The senator came from Indiana and left here for Wyoming. He was met at the airport at the start of his 2-hour visit by about, 500 persons. Police estimated that he was seen by 5,000 to 8,000 | persons during the visit. i Phone Sunday Want Ads In before noon Saturday.
