Texas Town Celebrates Fifth National Fink Day FINK, Tex. (UPI) - Some Fink probably didn't even recoignlsjo the place. There's a new general store, a muscuim and even a Fink City Hall. Two new houses nre under construction and there's talk of erecting a professional building big enough, for the offices of two doctors, two dentists and a lawyer. Pretty impressive for a town with a total population of six. The driving force behind this boom is Mayor Pat Albright, who also arranged today's National Fink Bay celebration attracting Finks, Fincks and Finqucs from all over the plaice. "I wouldn't be surprised to see the population triple by next year," Mayor Albright said as she set about getting a barbecue for 1,500 visitors in shape. "I've had more calls and letters this year ftram people named Fink than eve? before,*' she said. "II just a fraction of those named Fink show up, we'll set new records." This year's National Fink Day is the fifth such affair and each time the party gets a little larger. Last year a barbecue was prepared for 1,000 and the Finks ran out of beef. The big new attraction this year was the Fink Museum. Willard Albright, the mayor's husband, was digging a hole for the museum and the city hall when he came across some orange looking rocks. He saved them and now they arc prominently displayed in the museum as Fink Moon Rocks. The museum is a treasure chest of Flnkdom. Residents, all six of them, dug into attics and barns to contribute exhibits. Sour Deal City Nixes Lemonade Stand SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) - 3IS( Teen-ager Pam Sylke thought it would be an easy way to earn some money for school: Sell old-fashioned lemonade from the back of a truck. Then the 16-year-old, who recently moved here from West Allis, Wis., called City Hall to ask about a permit. A mobile catering operation, she was told, requires a $7,500 city permit. "We don't have $7,500," Pam and two teen-aged friends who planned to join her venture said in a. letter to Supervisor John L. Molinari. ..f .'All we want to do is work, and $7,500 to lemonade seems ridiculous." Molinari suggested an alternative-^ $48 peddler's license. But before she can get it, Pam has to pay $6 for police fingerprinting, must canvass merchants along her planned route to see if they object, have police investigate the route, and submit to a public hearing. "I'm kind of disgusted with all this stuff," complained Pam Wednesday. "But I feel I have to go through it for other kids." She admitted she had consid ered just ignoring the city regulations. Cargo Plane Crashes, Burns In Everglades MIAMI (UPI) - A TfanMIr cargo plane carrying a crew of three men crasfhed in the Everglades today just after takoff on a flight to the Dominican Republic.

Senate Drafts New Campaign Donation Bill WASHINGTON (UPI) - Sen ate lawmakers have drafted tentative legislation which would sMarply cut "fat cat" contributions in the 1976 presl diential camjpaign. The Senate Rules Committee voted Wednesday to place ceiling on donations by an individual or a committee to $15,000 in the primaries and $15,000 in the general elections. In addition, there would be a limitation of $5,000 each in the primaries and the election for sell I Senate and House candidates. These ceilings would take effect in 1974. And the proposed legislation would place an over-all ceiling of $100,000 on all political contributions by an individual during a calendar year. In effect, a husband and wife each contributing could give a presidential candidate $60,000 in itihe primaries and general election and spread around another $140,000 to Senate and House candidates. Galesburg Register>MQl(^ g^iesburg / III, Thursday, June 21, t??3 7 Pope Paul Celebrates 10th Anniversary * * a A?%a • m ^ - . j.*^*.. j^-M - . * > . - * 41 a-.. fair... ». - VATICAN CITY (UPI) Giovanni Battista Montlnl quietly celebrated his 10th anniversary as Pope Paul VI today, looking back on a decade that perhaps saw greater change In the Roman Catholic Church than in any other this century. Montini began his reign just after noon June 21, 1963, when elected by the 80 cardinals who had gathered in the Vatican's Sistine Chapel to decide on a successor to the throne of Peter. A crowd of thousands gathered below sent up a roar as the white smoke erupting from the roof of the chapel signified a choice had been made. Then, at 12:22 p.m., Montini stepped out on the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica to give his first blessing as the new pontiff. Bedecked in white gowns and an embroidered stole, he raised both hands to the cheering mass below him and uttered his first benediction as Pope—"Sic nomen domini behedictum" — Blessed be the name of the Lord. Then he gave the sign of the cross and left the balcony to return inside the Vatican. The pontificate of Pope Paul VI had begun. It has been a period of introspection of the church, of dialogue, of travel and of difficulty for the spiritual leader of the more than half a billion Catholics in the world. Pope Paul has been called too liberal by the conservatives and too conservative by the liberals. Nonetheless, Paul went ahead with the Second Vatican Council begun by his predecessor, John XXIII. He traveled around To Football Camp Timothy Smith, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Smith, 1099 E, Nonth St., is among Ga>lesburg youth attending itfie football camp this week at Marmion Military Academy, Aurora, 1 Tim will be in the ninth grade at Lombard Junior High School next year, the world in the early years and has started ft major dialogue with other world religions and Communis nations. Paul made ecumenism one of his major goals and in the celebration of the 10th anniversary of his pontificate, he continues to stress that ecumenical spirit. The actual celebration of the anniversary will come Saturday with the opening of a new branch of the Vatican museum, which will house gifts of art from the United States. In the evening, famed conductor Leonard Bernstein will conduct a concert at which the Newark Boys Choir will sing. As Bernstein said recently, the evening will be "profoundly ecumenical." However, the Pope is limiting the celebration to just these events. He does not want a major spectacle of this 10th anniversary and the Vatican is giving only a minimum of information about the celebration activities.
