2 - Tuesday, Jan. 28, 1964 Redlands Daily Facts Court asked to determine money order firms links LOS ANGELES (UPD—A Federal Court was to be asked today to aid in determining the conection between two private money order firms whose money orders worth thousands of dollars have bounced. A. J. Bumb, appointed-receiver of the Security Currency Services Ltd. in a bankruptcy action, said it was necessary to determine its connection with American Currency Services Ltd. to establish financial responsibility for the unredeema ble money orders. Principal owners of both firms are B.L. Suhl of Los Angeles and his mother, Mrs. Margaret Wierman of Covelo, Calif. "We are filing an application with the court for issuance of an order to show cause as to why American Currency Services and-or Suhl should not be declared to be the alter egos of Security Currency Ltd.," the receiver said. Bumb said the business dealings of the two firms were so cntertwined it would be impossible to determine the financial liability of Security without being able to see the books of American. "Our aim is to know where everything (all money of the two firms) is going," 'Bumb said. Bumb was still trying to determine how many persons were affected by the company's troubles and the total amount of money involved. He said earlier it could reach the $700,000 mark. Bumb said that while Security did business only in California its money orders could have turned up in other states for payment of bills. He said Amer ican money orders also had bounced in at least 10 states. American did business through about 700 agencies in states other than California. The two firms maintained offices at the same address and used the same post office box. Bumb said attorneys for Suhl had promised earlier be would cooperate in the investigation, but he said he was forced to employ locksmiths to open two safes in trying to determine the company's assets. Bumb emphasized there bad been "no determination of wrongdoing." "We're not out to throw stones," he said, "but to gather facts." County, state and federal officials met Monday with Chief Dep. Dist. Atty. M a n 1 e y J. Bowler to discuss the investiga tion into the two firms "to pre vent the overlapping of func tions and to facilitate a pooling of information." Bowler said his office was looking into the possibility of criminal violations within the county, while state investigators were looking for violations of state regulations. He said federal agents were awaiting re ports from an audit of Security's books. "This is going to be a tremendous audit," Bowler said. Badly gored, but fights on El Suicidal proves no bull frightens him REYNOSA, Mexico (UPD — Carmelo Marroquin is proud of his nickname "El Suicidal." With blood streaming from a gored leg, the bull fighter knelt Sunday before a charging "toro." A bull had hooked him in the leg, spun him into the air and tossed him to the ground. Refusing medical aid, he arose and killed the animal in 15 minutes of fighting. The he went for first aid and a tourniquet was applied to the torn leg. Doctors urged him to go to a hospital, but Marroquin refused. Instead, he returned to the ring and skillfully battled another bull. During that fight he knelt. The bull charged. "El Suicidal" flipped his cape and the raging beast, painfully wounded in the traditional manner, thundered past the fighter's hips. Rising, Marroquin turned and plunged steel into the bull's heart. The bullfighter, rated a novice, then was hospitalized. The wound, the size of an American half dollar, tore into six inches of his flesh. Marroquin was ordered to remain in bed for three days. Two hours later he hobbled out of the hospital. "Anyone who is afraid," he said, "gets a little gore and thinks he is dying. If you are not afraid, a big gore doesn't hurt." Marroquin, 28, limped down the streets of Reynosa today. He was the rave. He explained to fans that during the first fight, the bull had not hooked. Slowly, he allowed the animal to charge closer. Then came the jerk of the bull's head and the painful goring. "1 hope to fight next Sunday." he said. "I am not afraid. "I guess I live up to my nickname," El Suicidal said. Severed In auto crash Where's her ear asks surgeon? Found, sewed DUARTE, Calif.

Thomas H. Kuchel, R-Calif., announced today. The legislation introduced by Kuchel is cosponsored by Sens. Clair Engle, D-Calif.: Frank E. Moss. D-Utah; Len B. Jordan,' R-Idaho, and Frank Church, D-j Idaho. The measure is intended to protect traditional western water rights based on priority for whoever was first to put a water resource to use. Kuchel said the measure would not take away the power of the federal government to license, build or operate water projects. He said it would, bow- ver, assure compensation for impairment by the federal government of a water right held under state laws. The California Republican said the measure had "broad and enthusiastic support" and had gained the endorsement of many groups. Organizations supporting the legislation in elude the National Reclamation Association, Council of State Governments, National Association of Attorneys General, National Association of Counties, American Bar Association, and the National Association of Soil and Water Conservation Dis Iricts. tendants at Santa Teresita Hospital. Deputies rushed back to the scene, which had been washed clean by firemen, and found the ear in the debris. The ear was rushed to the hospital, soaked in a saline solution and—several hours after the accident—rejoined to the woman's head. 'It was a beautiful job," attendants said later. "But it will be several days before we know if the body will accept it." Deputies said Mrs. Gartman, who had been thrown through the windshield of her car when it ran into a barrier after being hit by a truck, had long hair and was bleeding profusely. Both factors contributed to the failure of anyone on the scene to notice her left car was missing.

Bows and brass buttons featured in Spring styles PARIS (UPD — Bows and brass buttons were the new touches contributed by designer Pierre Balmain today on the second day of the Paris spring fashion showings. Balmain did not start any trends or try any changes, such as following the current theme of waists cinched with belts and low-cut necklines. The Balmain silhouette remained narrow and loose in the waist, with skirts just covering the knees. Fresh additions included brass buttons on many coats and floppy "pussy cat" bows appeared on several outfits. Most of Balmain's suits followed his usual simple style- narrow skirt, jacket only slightly marking the waist and ending at the top of the hip. He showed both figure-fitting coats with narrow collars and pockets and squarish wider coats with wide sleeves, collarless or with small stand-up collars. Monday's displays featured low cut necklines, even on coats, and fluffy organdy blouses and gowns. Flowers decorated nearly everything. It added up to a soft, extremely feminine look. Bomb planted in car seriously wounds informer CHICAGO (UPI) — Police checked the top echelons of the crime syndicate today for clues into the car bombing that seriously wounded a high-living informer. Lewis C. Barbe, 32, an insurance broker who turned down police protection because it interfered with his night life, lay in St. Anthony's Hospital, his life out of danger. Physicians also thought they would be able to save his shattered right leg, although the talkative, swaggering associate of syndicate hoodlums might be crippled for life. Barbe was indicted New Year's Eve on fraud conspiracy charges with seven other men, including Marshall Caifano, one of Chicago's top reputed gangland hoodlums, and Vito Lorn- bardi, a convict recently sentenced to two to five years in prison for robbery. Barbe was expected to be the state's star witness in the trial. Monday he walked out of the criminal courts building after winning a continuance in the trial until Feb. 7. He got in his car and when he stepped on the starter a tremendous blast tore through the auto. Barbe was pitched from the car, writhing in pain and his leg a bloody tangled mess and he shouted: 'Get my stuff out of the car- take care of my briefcase." A reporter asked him if he knew who planted the bomb, hurriedly attached to the engine with coat hangers. Barbe said, 'never mind, I'll get 'cm in my own way." Barbe's talc of complicated financial shenanigans revolving around a fake hijacking led to the New Year's Eve indictments. Barbe said he had written a $48,000 policy on a shipment of steel wire. His hoodlum associates, he said, borrowed $32,000 to buy a quantity Of wire which had a market value of only $762. The conspirators then arranged a false hijacking of the wire, Barbe said, and tried to collect on the insurance. The plot fell through and Barbe went to authorities with his story. j Start with school first SHERMAN, Tex.

Courageous colonel in narrow escape in Congo LEOPOLDVILLE, The Congo (UPD—A courageous Canadian colonel naxiowly escaped death when he fiietl to rescue priests and nuns from machete-armed Congo terrorists, the United Nations said today. Lt. Col. Paul Mayer, in charge of the U.N. helicopter rescue operation in bloody Kwi- lu Province, was beaten up and knocked unconscious by about 100 young terrorists when he attempted the single-handed rescue of captive Belgian priests and nuns at Kisandji mission. Canadian Brig. Jacques Al fred Dextraze said Mayer was not seriously injured. "He is a tough guy," Dextraze said. Four Killed At least four missionaries, including one American woman, have been killed by the terrorists. The operation was led by four U.N. helicopters, two of which hovered overhead while the two others landed to take aboard refugees. When the two helicopters landed, Mayer went out alone to talk to the terrorists. "While Mayer was talking with the two chiefs, about 100 came at him from behind," Dextraze said. "They hit him on the head with rifle butts, knocked him unconscious and took away his belt and pistol. "It was an extremely delicate situation, because the missionaries were also surrounded by terrorists, while the youths were threatening to kill Mayer," the brigadier said. "The two gang chiefs objected and finally permitted Mayer to leave with three nuns." Mayer and his men later flew a second mission to rescue the remaining nuns and the priests, he said, but the terrorists refused to let them go. "As far as we know," Dextraze said, "this operation was completed today. Thousands of terrorists, operating in bands of 500 to 700 men, were reported roaming the Kwilu jungle, systematically burning missions to fulfill orders to "kill all missionaries." They are believed to be following the orders of a former Congo education minister who was trained by the Communist Chinese. Saturn launch set for Wednesday CAPE KENNEDY (UPD Tired technicians today readied a giant Saturn super rocket for another attempt Wednesday at orbiting the world's heaviest satellite. The shot, to boost 19 tons into orbit, was halted Monday with all but 100 minutes of the 11- hour countdown complete because of "human error."

Officials decided to delay the shot for two days to give the launching crew a rest. They had been on the job since 11 p.m., EST Sunday.

Pope orders liturgical reform in effect Feb. 76 VATICAN CITY (UPI)-Pope Paul VI today ordered parts of the ecumenical council's liturgical reform to go into effect on Feb. 16. Other key sections of the reform, including the substitution or modern languages for Latin in most of the Mass and sacraments, will become effective later after a special commission works out details. The papal decision came in a decree dated Jan. 25 and and made public today. A constitution reforming the sacred liturgy, or outward form of worship, was passed by the Ecumenical Council in last fall's session and solemnly promulgated by Pope Paul in the closing meeting Dec. 4. The papal decree said "many provisions of the constitution," including the substitution of modern languages for Latin, "cannot be applied at short notice because it is first necessary to revise some rites and prepare new liturgical texts.*' The Pope announced establishment of a special commission for this purpose. Other provisions, including a shortening of the divine office which priests must recite daily, can become effective at once, the Pope said. He ordered them enforced throughout the Roman Catholic Church by Feb. 16. These provisions included: —Officials of seminaries, religious schools and theological faculties are to start preparations at once for the teaching of sacred liturgy in those schools. Actual teaching is to begin next year. —Each bishop must set up a diocesan commission to encourage the liturgical movement — active discussions of Iitur, [problems — and separate commissions on sacred music and sacred art. —As of Feb. 16, the sermon becomes a compulsory part of ad masses on Sundays and holidays. The sermon until now was optional. Turkey walking out of peace conference ANKARA (UPI) — Turkey is walking out of the Cyprus "peace conference" in London because the British have failed to restore order on the disputed Mediterranean island, a government spokesman said today.
