Birthdate of: Ralph Bunche, U. S. statesman. The kangaroo mouse, weighing less than one ounce, has a tail twice as long as its three- inch body. ByTDMTlEDE BALD EAGLE, Pa. (NEA) - If the people of this cm* munity ever decide to adopt a town motto, they may consider the suggestion of an area car wash owner. "flu*," he grins, "is the horniest town in the country." Even allowing for exaggerated local pride, the claim has merit. Located along a wink of state highway 220, amid the quiet farmland of c e n t r a 1 Pennsylvania, the township has 1,800 people, one X-rated movie house, and two thoroughly adult book shops. WHILE THIS may not be much in comparison to urban porno capitals, it works out locally, according to one observing wag, "to something like a thousand dirty pictures for each of us." To a few, the situation is m laughing matter. But to most, it doesn't seem to be much of a matter at all. The movie, a drive-in, has been playing X Shows for nearly four years, one of the book stores lias been operating for nearly two — and nobody has thought, or at least done, anything about either.- Even now, in the wake of the Supreme Court decision, which allows focal communities to determine their own standards for displaying flirts and literature, there seems little movement to censor. JAMES FERGUSON, one of three township supervisors, says he has always been opposed to the adult entertain-* ment centers, says also that "a lot of my friends have too," but admits that official action is not s c h e d u 1 e d. "We've asked the township solicitor to check with the district attorney to give us an interpretation of the 1 Supreme Court ruling, but so far we In Romeoville Suspect Arraigned For Four Murders JOLIET, 111. (UPI) - Paul Frederick Lenea Jr., 36, was to What a Diet! Tiger sharks in the Red Sea can reach 18 feet in length and have voracious appetites. They are known to have eaten such varied items as sea birds, garbage, tin cans, lumps of coal, and — in one instance — a 30- foot roll of yard-wide roofing paper. READ THE WANT ADS! I Morton Girls Die In Peoria Crash PEORIA, 111. (UPI) - Kathy Staker, 16, and Janice Knapp, 17, both of Morton, were killed and three persons were seriously injured Sunday when the car in which they were riding ran off Illinois 88 and struck a utility pole, police said. The dead were passengers in a car driven by Steve Hopwood, 19, Peoria. Hopwood was in serious condition at St. Francis Hospital here. Two other passengers in the Hopwood auto, Sandy Schick, 17, Morton, and Sharon Feucht, 19, Peoria, also were injured. Miss Schick was hospitalized in critical condition and Miss Feucht was in serious condition. Man, Teen Step Off Sandbar, Die CINCINNATI LANDING, 111. (UPI) — Two persons drowned in the Mississippi River about three miles south of here Sunday, the Pike County sheriff's office said. The sheriff's office said the victims, Kenneth L. Coleman, 28, Bowen, and Rex J. Rampley, 14, Coleman's brother-in-law, |; apparently stepped off a sandbar near Gilbert Island. Rex was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Rampley of Augusta. Reject Proposal EDWARDS VILLE, 111. (UPI) — About 500 members of the Madison County Carpenters District Council went on strike today after the Southern Illinois Builders Association rejected the carpenters' latest contract proposal. be arraigned on murder charges today in Will County Circuit Court in connection with the slayings of four Romeoville residents. Police said Lenea was expected to be present for his arraignment today, despite being hospitalized Saturday night for treatment for alcohol withdrawal. Lenea was in good condition at St. Joseph Hospital, where he was taken Saturday night after becoming ill in his jail cell. Four Counts Lenea, a truck driver from North Fort Meyers, Fla., was to be formally charged with four counts of murder in the slayings of Robert Kloeckner, 36, Romeoville, two of Kloeckner's children and a 13-year-ld girl who had been staying overnight with the Kloeckners. The murders were discovered Saturday morning after Kloeckner's wife, Patsy, 36, ran screaming from her home to a neighbor's home in Romeoville, vvhsre she collapsed. Mrs. Kloeckner, the sole survivor of the murder spree, was in good condition at Silver Cross Hospital suffering from head wounds believed to have been inflicted with a hammer. Attempted Rape Police said Lenea would be charged with attempted murder in connection with the beating of Mrs. Kloeckner. He also was to be charged with attempted rape, authorities said. Police found Kloeckner lying dead in a reclining chair in the living room. Kloeckner's daughter, Crystal, 13, and her friend, Tracy Richards, 13, who was spending the night at the Kloeckner home, were found dead in a back bedroom. The body of Kloeckner's son, Anthony, 16, was found in a front bedroom. Police said all four victims had been beaten about the head and that the two girls' throats had been slashed with a butcher knife. Covered With Blood Police said Lenea, a high school acquaintance of Mrs. Kloeckner, apparently came to visit the Kloeckner home Friday night. Police found Lenea in the kitchen of the Kloeckner home when they arrived to investigate the slayings. Authorities said the suspect was covered with blood and had been drinking from a liquor bottle. haven't heard. We have to <*& untif <h *D. A. gives tor oplitiori." But, the D. A. is waiting too. "I've not received any request for interpretations from anybody," Richard Saxton says. He adds (hat he hasn't heard ah X-rated criticism "in months." There is, Appafentiy, the /beginning of ja < d^urch'-spon- sored inquiry into Bald Eagle's , bawdy morals. Rev. Jack Lemibach, of the Church of Christ; famous here for once trying to close down a carnival giriy shcjw, says he and the Methodist minister "have been in touch and (agree something should be done." : ; But what? Rev. Leimbach s has-been personally, worried about the area ever since he found out, years.ago,'the Mill Haven newsstand was selling Playboy. Says he: "t'dlike to run it-all out of the area." However, he knows it's not just that simple. "As I under*stand the court," the minister says, "we first have to determine the 'community Standards.' " AND THAT, he admits, may be sobering. The Community allowed the X entertainment here originally and has allowed it to prosper ever since. "I doubt," Leimbach laments, "that a religious book shop would make a dime here." Thus unless a few of the righteous impose censorship, he feels the adult shops may go on indefinitely. It's difficult to form figures, but there is evidence here that many people hope 'the shops do ga on indefinites- ly. Few will "-admit, their own * patronage, uh, natch, but assume an attitude of forbearance. Charles Stevenson, a county commissioner, notes that Clinton County has only three movie houses in total and he "wouldn't like" to see any closed. "The owner of the drive-in, Roland Fredericks, is a friend of mine. He features an occasional X-rated; film because it helps him,remain ih business. If he closed down, people around here wouldn't be able to see the Other shows, the G and GP shows, that he usually plays." FOR HIS PART, Fredericks confirms that a periodic X-rated feature — such as "18 Carat Virgin" — is dandy for business: "On Mondays and Tuesdays, if we're playing a GP show, we'll get a dozen or two dozen cars. If we play an X feature we get 100 oars and $90 worth of concessions business." Besides, Fredericks insists, Autopsy Determines Cause Of Death at Art Institute CHICAGO (UPI) - An autopsy has revealed that a San Francisco State University coed whose body was found near the Art Institute of Chicago Friday died of a skull fracture and subsequent brain damage. ; Police said Sunday, that the Airplane Crashes Near Streamwood STREAMWOOD, 111. (UPI) Mark Fay, 21, and Glen Hill, 13, both of Plainfield, suffered head injuries Sunday when their small plane crashed into a cornfield near here. The two were in fair condh tion at Sherman Hospital in nearby Elgin. Police said the single-engine |! plane, which belonged to Fay, was not too badly damaged. The cause of *the crash was under investigation. fatal blows may have been inflicted by the killer beating the victim with his fists or kicking her with his feet. The nude, battered body of Lee Alexis Wilson, 23, was found in dense shrubbery near the institute by a 12-year-old boy. The autopsy report, released Sunday, indicated that Miss Wilson had not been raped. The report also ruled out strangulation as a cause of death. Police had no suspects in the slaying, Miss Wilson was spending "the summer with her brother, Cleveland, 25, who lives in Chicago. She was taking a social- ogy course at Loop Junior College and planned to return to California this fall to continue her education. Cleveland Wilson said his sister told him she had planned to do some sketches in the Loop before class Friday morning. Police said the murder occurred during the daylight hours and that thousands of persons must have passed the murder scene. One man told police he heard'a scream near the mur-. der scene about 2 p.m. Friday but that he did not investigate the .matter because no one else seemed to be paying attention. nobody has ever complained. Not loudry anyway. "I grew up here. I own a farm (ha conveniently grows the popcorn for his theater patrons). People know me. If I thought people truly objected, I'd stop it now." The owner of one of the book stores, too, is a local man. But he has none of Fredericks' community spirit. Harold Foltz, 30, who wears tee- shirts with no sleeves, and who sells sex aids, movies and magazines as if they were groceries, says he opened his store because "I've got a third grade education and I can't get a job nowhere else." He further says he'll stay open until "they drag me away, which they won't." AS FOR MINISTERIAL resentment, says Foltz, "I've had ministers in here, and officials too. They buy like everyone else." So it goes in Bald Eagle. Says a man in the D. A.'s office: "We're not so hickish as you might expect." No argument. A farmer of the area says he's been to two drive- in movies this year. One was "The World's Greatest Athlete" and the other was "18 Carat Virgin." Know what? he sighs, "didn't like either." Storms Diminish Over Mississippi Valley Vicinity By United Press International A few heavy thunderstorms remained over the upper Mississippi Valley today but otherwise the storms were diminishing. International Falls, Minn., reported over two inches of rain in a six-hour period late Sunday night. Other storms were reported extending into western Kansas. Atwood, Kan., recorded winds of 70 miles per hour, causing window and tree damage. Other parts of the nation received widely scattered showers in the early hours. The showers hit along the Gulf Coast, in the Carolinas and in the northern and central Rockies. But for much of the nation, from New England to the southern Rockies, clear, dry weather and mild temperatures prevailed. Early morning temperatures ranged from a low at Cut Bank, Mont., with 47 to a high in Phoenix, Ariz., of 92. Bass Fishermen Turn To Making Own Plastic Worms By VIC WATIA I process in hunting, the more a By United Press International fisherman reuses his home- The plastic worm has become made worms, the cheaper it so commonplace among dedi- becomes, cated bass fishermen that it I The American Fishing almost could be compared with j Tackle Manufacturers Association Show, which is being held in Chicago Aug. 4-7, will feature worm - making kits for, anglers among the list of new; products for 1974. Worm Molds One of the manufacturers dis jljyiiig a complete line of prod the shotgun shell among hunt- niioois Outdoors ers. It is little wonder then that more and more anglers are turning to making then- own worms, just as hunters and trap and skeet shooters reload their own shells, ucts for the do -it -yourself fish- And, just as in the reloadingjerman' is M-F Manufacturing! !Co. Inc. of Fort Worth, Tex. |The company offers more than a dozen different worm molds, including molds for beetles, shrimp tails, salamanders, grubs and lizards. It also has plastics, scents, colors and softeners and hardeners. The AFTMA show is an annual event during which major fishing tackle manufacturers display their wares to outlets i ."or the following fishing season. Orders are placed, influencing! company production. ; Although homemade worm! production is nothing new, only recently has it become popular. Home production of plastic worms offers the bass angler something to occupy free time, just as fly tying and jig making. However, it requires no special skill. Liquid plastic is melted in a pot slowly to avoid scorching, color is added, and the plastic is poured into molds. Once it has cooled, the worm is complete. Some worm -making kits offer scents that can be added i r to the heated plastic. Others offer scents added when the worm is cool. Color Blend The benefit of home worm production is that special colors can be blended to the angler's preference, the worm can be made as soft or hard as the angler wants and, once used, the worm can be saved, re- melted and used again. The ( only cost is from loss of worms. Long an advocate and practitioner of home worm-making, ( I learned long ago that the angler can also design worms, and lures of his own based ctn the principle of the worm-mak ing kits. Many of my designs | caught fish. Others did not. But the satisfaction of designing lures that took fish far o# weighed the effort. L always carry a couple of wild looking homemade snakes and lures in my tackle box which I try the bass are refusing everything else. Once in a while they take fish, and, when they do, it's enough to Wow the mind of my fishing partner when he has to rummage through his tackle box trying to find something similar to use. Under the home process, worms can be produced at a cost of only 2 or 3 cents apiece, but the cost further diminishes by reusing the worms when they become torn or a fish disappears with half of one. Another advantage of home­ made worms is that sound- making devices can be added when the worm is made, thus imaintaining the strength of the worm. For example, the worm can be poured right over "Ratlers" during the production process. Beginning worm - makers should take into consideration that some plastic may be wasted during the first few experimental worms, but the savings in the long run will make up for the loss. »
