South Korea Vote Brings Fraud Charges SEOUL, Korea (AP) - South Korea elected a president today, choosing between strong* man Chung Hee Park and Yun Po-sun, whose party charged election fraud and accused the military of browbeating voters. As the polls closed, Park issued a statement asserting the election was conducted in "the most peaceful balloting atmosphere in Korea's history." He appeared confident of victory. Yun's Civil Rule party immediately raised charges that might enable them to challenge the validity of the election, which was called under U.S. prodding after more than two years of rule by Park's military junta. Yun's supporters charged ballots cast for Yun were being torn intentionally—and thus invalidated — by progovernment officials and that Park's supporters pressured voters in the polling stations.

(AP) —Shosone Indian squaws know what they are doing when they drink a cold water extract as a birth control measure, two professors say. The National Institutes of Health awarded a $27,000 grant Monday to the professors, Gestur Johnson and Stanley Sun- derwirth, to continue their study for three years. Sunderwirth and Johnson said the squaws drink the extract from roots of the lithospermum ruderale plant to reduce fertility. The plant grows in mountainous areas of Colorado. Sunderwirth and Johnson, on the staff of Colorado State University, said biological effects of oxidized acid from the litho- sperm result in "inhibition of ovulation in the laying hen and inhibition of ovarian growth in the immature female rat."

Dirksen said today that President Kennedy's foreign aid program was in "deep, deep trouble" because of a "harder appraisal" by Congress and the country. The Illinois Republican would not speculate on how much of Kennedy's original $4.5 billion authorization request might ultimately be approved by Congress. But his statement, made in an interview, supported speculation that the administration may finally get little more than the $3.5 billion voted by the House. Chairman J. William Fulbright, D-Ark., of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee which went back to work on the bill at a closed session today, agreed that the program faced difficulty. But "it's always in trouble," he told reporters. Fulbright said he would hold sessions every day this week if possible in hopes of finishing committee action and sending the long-delayed measure to the floor. But he would make no predictions as to how soon or how much the committee would finally vote. "We will just plow our corn as we go along," he said. The foreign relations group sidetracked the authorization measure more than two months ago to work on the limited test ban treaty. In the meantime, opposition — at least to some parts of it — appears to have increased rather than clamed down. Dirksen said "the number of recipient countries is going down." and there are other areas in which many senators feel the aid program "isn't doing anything worthwhile." Compared with past years, he said, "the program is in infinitely more trouble — deep, j deep trouble." The GOP leader said the situation was due to "the new attitude up here in Congress and to a new and harder attitude in the country." m& ft 1 1 1 'Ml i* 1 2Bff : Y |- /I;,,,' lift 1 *;;;,- h Ik MONMOUTH VOLUNTEER FIREMAN GETS OXYGEN. Soften Civil Rights Bill, House Asked WASHINGTON (UPI) - Atty. Gen. Robert F. Kennedy today asked the House Judiciary Committee to soften a pending civil rights bill that would go well beyond the President's recommendations. Kennedy, placing himself in vulnerable position for attack by civil rights proponents, made his appeal for a more moderate bill at a closed-door meeting of the committee. A texi of his statement was made public afterwards. The attorney general called for less sweeping provisions than provided by a judiciary subcommittee measure in t h e fields of voting, public accommodations and civil rights suits that the Justice Department would be allowed to institute. But he backed the subcommittee's action in adopting a strong Fair Employment Practices Commission (FEPC) provision. He said the administration was for it either in the main civil rights bill or as separate legislation. Fiery(Continued from page 14) Dirksen Thinks Aid Program Is In for Trouble WASHINGTON (AP) — The fight over foreign aid crackles anew today in the Senate where the administration intends to mount a counterattack to recapture some of the $1 billion cut in the House. Republican Leader Everett M. Dirksen thinks the tide of battle has turned against the aid program. "The bill is in deep, deep trouble this year," said the Illinois senator. "There is a new and harder attitude in the Senate and throughout the country." President Kennedy is asking the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to restore at least a good chunk of the $1 billion the House chopped from the $4.5 billion he had requested. Liehtg Went Out JAKARTA, Indonesia (UPI)The lights went out all over West Java at midnight Monday night.

Alexis Unit Board Agenda Is Reviewed ALEXIS — The Alexis Community Unit School District Board of Education held its October administrative meeting Oct. 9. All members were present. All reports, which included the lunch fund, revolving fund, attendance report and activity fund were approved. A report on the first Central Illinois superintendents round table meeting was given by the unit Supt. Zarcoff. This meeting was primarily concerned with new legislation affecting school. The state visitation report on the AJexis High School home economics department was read. The report was a favorable one, praising both the board and Mrs. Campbell, home economics instructor, on having a fine department. All board members decided to attend the Western Illinois Association of School Boards fall meeting at Knoxville Oct. 22. Richard Olin, president of the Alexis board, will serve as chairman of one of the panel discussions at the meeting. Miss Ruth Anderson, elementary principal, attended the fall conference of the Elementary Principals Association at Peoria. A discussion was held concerning the spare bus situation and further investigation into this matter was planned. All proposed work on the new bus shed has been completed. water from two wells, and one pump was reported out of action last night, but this apparently was not the case. Moore and Romano said they knew of no such shortage. After a full night of work, many men in the city had red eyes from the smoke and sported stubbly beards. One fire fighter, when chided about his appearance by an equally unkempt - looking comrade retorted, "Who gives a damn about now?" The business district was somewhat deserted this morning, with amny citizens catching up on their sleep, after an exhausting night of work and vigilance. But the few that were there expressed apprehension about future nights. Up All Night One middle-aged woman who declined to give her name said, "Isn't this just terrible? My family stayed up all night, watching, listening and we were all pretty darn scared. I only hope they catch the people responsible so we can sleep tonight." Another said if he heard a siren tonight "they will probably have to scrape me off the ceiling. But despite what jokes a few people could crack, the fact that someone is fiendishly igniting fires cannot be erased from the thoughts of the townspeople. They're hoping state and local officials can nab the culprit before another night must be faced of listening for the siren. Fire fighter Dick Evans did not fall through the roof of the Monmouth lumber yard as earlier reported. Two firemen were overcome by smoke, however. They were Tom Griffin and Jerry Fainter. Others received minor cuts that did not require hospitalization. OasttfMd Adttrtwnf titMttw April l, IMS _ LOCAL CASH RATI 1 *10 ..

The finding was the result of a study conducted by Dr. E. John Larson of Ashland, Ohio and reported in the current Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association. ^n his study of the toxicity of aspirin, Larson said four cats were given daily dosage of 5 grains of aspirin—the common human adult dosage of one tablet—and died after 7, 9, 12 and 20 daily doses, respectively. Larson observed a suppressed development of red blood cells took place in two of the cats suggesting "a primary toxic effect (of aspirin) on bone marrow not previously reported in man or animals."

Before the indictments were returned, three Bronx Criminal Court judges, all colleagues of his father, acquitted the youth of reckless and drunken driving charges on June 9. This action aroused considerable controversy. A county grand jury then investigated the case, heard numerous witnesses and handed up the indictments. Martinis is the son of Judge Joseph A. Martinis.
