(AP wirephoto) Approve Sea Lamprey Pact With Canada WASHINGTON L?) — A treaty with Canada aimed at wiping out sea lampreys in the Great Lakes has been approved by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The treaty was signed Sept. 10. 1B54, by officials of the United States and Canada but must be ratified by a two-thirds vote of the Senate to become effective. Lampreys have virtually destroyed the fishing industry in Lake Huron and Michigan and now are moving into Lake Superior. They are eel-like creatures which attach themselves to a fish, drill a hole through its scales with needle-sharp teeth and suck out the fish's body juices until it Is dead or at least commercially unusable. Under the treaty it is estimated the United States will pay about $750,000 a year for three years to support a Great Lakes Fishery Commission to carry out a lamprey eradication program and build up stocks of commercially desirable fish. Circumstance COLUMBUS. Ohio CT) — Police answering a burglar alarm Tuesday with guns drawn, nabbed a man with a sack of money as he was leaving the Upper Arlington branch of the Ohio National Bank.

The man, Leo Campbell, was taking the money to the state liquor store nearby, where he works. 816 Forest Ave. ■ Call Gene Cahiil Phone 3-9961 VILLIGER'S DRUG STORE 115 First St. Ph.3-0251 MX RESEARCH CORP.. T«l»d» 7. 0hi» yard," «enatora Tuesday upheld the President's veto of a bill which would have given 500, 000 postal workers a pay increase averaging 8.6 per cent and fringe benefits bringing the total to S.8 per cent. The President called this too high. The 54-39 Senate vote— 8 votes short of the two-thirds margin needed to override a veto— gave the President a major political victory in the first congressional challenge of his veto power. Voting to override were 46 Demo crats and 8 Republicans; voting to sustain were 37 Republicans and 2 Democrats. Leading an unsuccessful fight to override the veto, Sen. Olm D. Johnston (D-SC) called Eisenhower "that poor, misguided and confused man in the White House." He urged the Senate to resist "complete domination" by the Republican administration. After the Senate sustained the veto and thereby killed the bill identical bills were introduced in both Senate and House for a pay raise which Sen. Carlson (R-Kan) said he knew he would be acceptable to the President. Companion bills were offered by Carlson. Rep. Rees (R.Kan 1 and Rep. Murray (D-Tenn) calling for an average increase of around 7.9 per cent a minimum raise of 6 cent. Sen. Johnston, chairma the Post Office Committee, offer- mother which he said would average 8 per cent. There's not much use for on ex-demotion point. Nobody is sur-orised ot anything any more.

No casualties were reported but i-o houses and two automobiles ere demolished and eight build ings were damaged. At one farm, 900 baby chicks drowned. Several residents had narrow es-ipes. They raced for a hilltop and reached it safely just as the rrent surged past. Sheriff J. R. Gibson, of Lump kin County, who headed the in- estigation. said the earthen pri- ate dam "simply broke." He said rater pressure could have caused the 50-foot-wide break. The dam, built IS months a°:o for r I * i \v*^ -/ igation and recreational pur poses, was owned by J. J. Ravan, operates a store and tourist t. Four units of the tourist court were damaged. Ravaii saw the water coming id warned his wife and their three children. Together, they ran the hili.
