ft ^ e 24-- THE INDEPENDENT »·"* ···* J«. Bound for Islands Contributing Offender Free on Probation School custodian 'Frank Feikema, 66, charged with contributing to the delinquency of a 9- year-old girl, was released on a year's probation Thursday in Superior Court. Feikema, known as "Uncle Frank" to students at Clifton School, Artesia, was found guilty of the charge May 21 by Superior Judge George Francis. When Feikema appeared for sentencing Thursday, Judge Joseph M. Maltby declared, however, that he could find no evidence of "lewd and lascivious" conduct on the janitor's part. Feikema, who testified at his trial that he was in the habit'of being "affectionate" toward little girls at the school but had never molested them, was informed he need not register as a sex offender. Miss FinlaTid Demos Force Knowland to Delay Control Action WASHINGTON--Senate Democrats, shouting "legislation by steamroller," Thursday forced acting Republican Leader William F. Knowland to postpone final action on a compromise' controls bill until Monday. Knowland, who had touched off a bitter party fight by pressing for immediate action, twice was saved from defeat by the tie- breaking votes cast by Vice. President Richard M. Nixon. He finally agreed to "put off a vote until Monday. It was the first open clash between Democrats and Republicans since Knowland took over last week from GOP Leader Taft who is suffering from a painful hip ailment The argument grew heated as Senate Democratic leader Johnson (Tex.) s h a r p l y criticized Knowland for bringing up the measure on such short notice. He said Democrats would not rely on Senate schedules announced by Knowland. · ·SEUA AMfEU SOPANEN was selected to represent Finland »t the forthcoming Miss Universe Beauty Pageant here beginning July 9.

Once again, Nixon cast the decisive vote as Morse again joined the Democrats. Nixon apparently saved Knowland for a third time when Sen. Chavez (D.-N. M.) showed up a few minutes later and asked permission to vote. Nixon ruled him out of order but Knowland finally agreed to postpone a vote on the bill until Monday.
