Zeiger, 44, Waterloo, Injured in the accident and taken to St. Elizabeth's Hospital here were the Zeiger woman, Jeanette K. Reitz, 37, and Viola Eilbracht, 70, all of Waterloo. Housewife Sues Laundry, Mate's Pants Are Pink MINNEAPOLIS (AD—A house- wile brought into court a pair of her husband's shorts, dyed pink, in pressing her suit for $33 against a coin-operated laundry. Mrs. Robert Wallien complained also that shirts, socks and towels were dyed pink in the public washer. She said she had gone to do some shopping and could only guess that someone had tossed a red rug, or such, into her laundry for a free wash. The lundry owner denied responsibility. The judge took the claim under advisement. Chemical Treatment Applied To Improve Fishing at Lake Fish biologists used a new method of treating a lake with rotenone today in an effort to rid Lake Bracken of stunted pan fish. Ken Russell, state Division of Fisheries biologist, supervised the work, which began about 8 a. m. Rather than spraying the surface of the water with liquid rotenone as was done In Lake Storey and Lake Rice last week, Russell and his helpers dragged sacks of the powdered chemical in the water along the shoreline. The powdered rotenone method is relatively new, Russell said, and involves the use of a burlap sack. After Russell ripped a drawstring on one end of the sack, a larger mesh burlap was exposed. This end is placed in the water and dragged by boat, and the chemical dissolves in the water. The rotenone is applied near the shoreline because the small fish stay in shallow water, Russell explained. Different From Storey This phase of the treatment also differs from the one at Lake Storey, where the entire lake was sprayed with rotenone. This was to wipe out gizzard shad in deeper water in the city lake. The lake draw-down will take care of the stunted fish population by denying them their habitual living area along shore. But Lake Bracken has no means to lower the water level; consequently, the alternate treatment was needed, Russell said. The powdered rotenone is less expensive than the liquid, he said, "but I have never used this type and I don't know the results." However, he said he hoped to have a good idea of the treatment's effectiveness by nightfall. Lake Bracken also has a gizzard shad problem, but Russell plans to investigate the situation further before recommending an all-out rotenone treatment similar to the Lake Storey project. Concentration Higher Russell said he had hope that the treatment in Lake Bracken today will prove successful, because the concentration of rotenone will be much higher. Because only the shoreline is involved, the volume of water treated is much less than the volume treated at Lake Storey, and this makes it easier to figure the amount of rotenone added, Russell said. And because the larger game fish stay in deeper water, he doesn't have to worry about killing them since the rotenone will be in the shallow water only. These factors point toward a good operation, he said, with only the new type of rotenone the big question in the project. This stunted pan fish problem is common to all three lakes in this area, he said. Lake Rice was sprayed with rotenone last week by Russell, and he says the treatment had good results. Bullet Strikes Auto Driven hv Rep. Shipley HANCOCK, Md. (AP) - An Illinois congressman escaped injury early today when a bullet struck the windshield of his car near the Maryland-Pennsylvania state line, state police said. Rep. George E. Shipley, D-Ill., was quoted by Maryland State Police as saying the bullet struck the windshield of his car as he was driving near Hancock in western Maryland. State police said a search of the area uncovered no leads. Police theorized Shipley's car may have been struck by a stray bullet, but they did not rule out the possibility that someone may have deliberately fired at Shipley. Shipley, a native of Olney, 111., is from the 23rd District. New Windsor Church Plans Dedication British Will Get Details On Sex Story LONDON (AP) - The British government unveils its best seller of the year tonight — Lord Denning's 50,000-word report on the Profumo scandal. Politicians sharpened their knives for a new round in the long battle over former War Minister John Profumo's affair with prostitute Christine Keeler. The government printing office made unprecedented arrangements to open its headquarters in central London half an hour after midnight for early buyers. The cost will be seven shillings sixpence — $1.05. Denning, 64, a High Court judge, produced his report after a 12- week investigation, including interviews with more than 140 witnesses ranging from Prime Minister Macmillan to prostitutes. Denning's chief task was to determine if the Profumo-Keeler affair involved any security leaks. Christine at the time was sharing her bed also with Capt. Yevgeny Ivanov, an assistant Soviet naval attache. The identity of many of the witnesses indicated the judge extended his inquiry into rumors that the sex life of other government figures matched Pro­ fumo's.

Medical Society Says It's Time To Get Shots CHICAGO (AP) - The Illinois State Medical Society says that autumn visit to the doctor is a good time for inoculation shots for young and old. For the children—9 months and up—the society Tuesday advised vaccination now to guard against measles next spring. And for adults—especially those over 45—the flu shots are advised. "Asian flu, the dread virus disease that has killed thousands of Americans since it first invaded our shores six years ago, performs most of its treachery in cold, damp weather," the society said. Especially vulnerable to flu are the aged, those with chronic heart, circulatory and kidney ailments, and pregnant women. CIA Plan Wins WASHINGTON (UPI) - The House Armed Services Committee approved Tuesday the establishment of a special retirement system for the Central Intelligence Agency.

S. grain to the Soviet Union, similar to the deal recently concluded by Canada. Burton Joseph, president of I. S. Joseph Inc. of Min| neapolis, said his group is Sp ace Chief Outlines Way In Moon Trip HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) - U.S. space chief James E. Webb suggested today that as a first step in a joint effort at reaching the moon, the United States and Russia could cooperate on choosing lunar landing site and base of exploration. In a speech before the Texas Midcontinent Oil and Gas Association, Webb said President Kennedy's call for a joint moon venture was not a change in U.S. policy. Kennedy's proposal at the United Nations last Friday for the United States to join the Soviet Union in an expedition to the moon raised some speculation that the President was drawing back from the goal of a U.S. moon-landing in this decade. The speculation centered on the attempts to reduce spending and delays in the moon program timetable. At a news conference Tuesday night Webb, administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, said "Americans are too sophisticated to cut off a successful program where 90 per cent of the work is already under contract." He told newsmen that a joint U.S.-Russian moon shot effort would not necessarily mean astronauts and cosmonauts would ride in the same space ships. Barge Hauls Cattle to Illinois From Texas CAIRO, 111. (AP) - A barge loaded with 1,000 head of cattle is expected to arrive this week from Texas, the second such shipment to indicate the possible rebirth of cattle drives by river. A triple-deck barge carrying the cattle is to tie up at Cairo for supplies before completing its 2,400-mile trip to Pittsburgh Pa. Cairo is at the junction of the Mississippi and Ohio rivers. It is the second cattle shipment by river in recent years. The same barge carried 1,000 steer in June from Mississippi to Omaha, Neb. Barge spokesmen said cattle shipping by river promises to expand rapidly meaning additional business for river ports. Steers reportedly gain weight on the smooth ride, and there is no lack of drinking water. Packet boats and some barges frequently carried cattle herds in the 19th century. But there was little use of the rivers by cattle shippers after 1930. The Almanac By United Press International Today !s Wednesday, Sept. 25, the 268th day of 1963 with 97 to follow. The moon is approaching first quarter. The morning star is Jupiter. The evening stars are Jupiter and Saturn. Those born today include William Faulkner, American writer and Nobel Prize winner, in 1897. On this day in history; In 1513, the Spanish explorer Balboa crossed the Isthmus of Panama and became the first European to set eyes on the Pacific Ocean. In 1789, the First Congress of the United States met in New York City and adopted 12 Amendments to the Constitution — 10 of which were ratified and became known as the Bill of Rights. In 1926, the Ford Motor Company put its workers on an eight- hour day and a five-day week. In 1959, the prime minister of Ceylon was shot by assassins. He died the next day. A thought for the day — The American engineer, Vannevar Bush, said: "The scene changes but the aspirations of men of good will persist." in Ottawa to sell wheat but it is "far premature to talk of a trade between these two countries"—the United States and Russia. Joseph said he has not met with the head of the Russian group that bought $500 million worth of Canadian wheat and flour last week. He declined to say whether a meeting is scheduled. "We just don't know what we have here ourselves." said Joseph. "We're way ahead of ourselves." He added that possibly he could say more in a few days. Still in Ottawa The Russian delegation is still in Ottawa, although it concluded its dealings with the Canadian government last week. It is headed by S.A. Borisov, first deputy minister of Russian trade. With Joseph in Ottawa are two other Minneapolis grain men, Charles Ritz, board chairman of International Milling Co., and Ralph Bruce, a vice president of Archer Daniels Midland Co., and Leopold Stern, director of the Louis Dreyfus Corp. of New York. Joseph said there are "a few more" representatives of the American grain industry in Ottawa b"t would not identify them. Activity among the American wheat men was intensive. They held meetings at their hotel through the night until early today. The Joseph group's mission to Ottawa was first reported in a copyrighted story in the Minneapolis Tribune and Des Moines Register which said lack of U.S. government approval is all that is blocking the closing of the deal. Pleads Guilty; Driver Fined $300 and Costs A fine of $300, plus costs, was assessed by Judge Daniel J. Roberts against Ardon Wells, 40, of Chicago, following his plea of guilty this morning in Knox County Court to a charge of driving while intoxicated.
