He added, "The station needed to be remodeled and we thought it would be a nice thing for Chiilicothe to have a convenience store in the middle of town." To add to a shopper's convenience, he said, the store will be open Sunday through Thursday from 6:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. Maples said the store currently has three employees. Women killed by train Continued from Page I right thing." He said his wife was too upset to go to accompany him to the airport. When John Jr arrived, the senior Hinckley said he took his son to a waiting area and told him "how disappointed I was in him, how he let us down, how he had not followed the plan we all had agreed on" for him to become self-sufficient. He said he then told John Jr. he would not be allowed back to the family home in the Denver suburbs, gave him several hundred dollars and suggested he find a room at the local YMCA. "He said he didn't want to do that," Hinckley recalled. "I said, 'OK, you're on your own. Do whatever you want."' Earlier today, the elder Hinckley testified that five months before Reagan was shot, he had decided to seize control of the young man's aimless life and get him psychiatric help. Hinckley said he realized his son needed to see a psychiatrist when the younger Hinckley returned depressed, confused and disoriented to the family home in mid- October I960. John Jr. did begin seeing a psychiatrist about a week later, the father said, and the sessions continued through February 1981, one month before Hinckley admits he shot the president. The elder Hinckley said his youngest son's mental condition began deteriorating in 1978, more than three years before the 26-year-old college dropout was accused of shooting Reagan and three other men outside a Washington hotel. The father said that "1977 was the last year he was able to cope with his life." The elderly Hinckley said his son could find no direction in his life, that he dropped out of Texas Tech University numerous times, and kept moving from Texas to Colorado to California. The senior Hmckley's wife, JoAnn, who spent two emotional days on the witness stand last week, left the courtroom and sat alone on a wooden chair in a corridor outside. The elder Hinckley said John "just seemed to be so unsettled. He didn't seem to know what he wanted to do. He didn't stick with anything very long." John Jr. is the youngest of the Hinckleys' three children. Before the father took the stand, his daughter, Diane Hinckley Sims, testified under government cross- examination that she did not actually see John Jr. in the three months before Reagan was shot on March 30, 1981, a period wnen she says she Was worried about her brother's depression Mrs. Sims, who three weeks before the attempted assassination agreed with her brother Scott that John should be hospitalized, said today she last saw John during the Christmas season in 1980.

The police chief added that some leniency has been given in the downtown area because "some of the yellow lines are wrong." Talking about restrictive yellow lines, Hall said, "Several places around town are wrong." Many are not, of course. Part of the problem with yellow lines has been the changing of ordinances allowing parking where it once was prohibited. City ordinances call for no parking 10 feet from a stop signal, stop sign or a corner. It is illegal to park across sidewalks, in intersections or crosswalks, or across the street from public or private driveways. A rundown of individual months shows that May could be the heaiest month for parking tickets issued with 20 violators cited before the month is half over. The most in a month thus far is March when 32 persons received parking violation citations. Tuesday night's l-night tickets almost equaled the number of issued through the months of February and April when 18 tickets were issued each month for parking violations. Eight were issued in . January. * Discuss Continued from Page 1 purchasing agents, railroads and others who were believed to have had connections with Chiilicothe Grain Co. and Daviess County Agri-Services.
