A snowstorm that swept across seven Midwestern states, with amounts ranging up to a half foot in some areas, headed into the Ohio Valley and interior sections of the Northeast. The snow belt covered areas in Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin and Ohio. Driving conditions were hazardous in many areas.

The uncontested divorce was granted Mrs. Ford on grounds of mental cruelty by Judge Charles Scoggin. A year ago he "ssued a divorce decree for Margaretta. Fitler Murphy, who ater became the wife of New York Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller. Mrs. Ford, 44, was awarded custody of the couple's only ninor child, Edsel Bryant Ford, 14, with visitation right by his father. The couple has two other children, Charlotte, 22, and Anne, 21. Mrs. Ford, the former Anne McDonnell of Southampton, Island, N.Y., was driven Nelson Selected Panel Member Steve Nelson, son of Capt. and iMrs. Kenneth Nelson, 1703 N. 6th, is one of six Kansas State University students selected for the K-State team which will complete on the General Electric Quiz Bowl television program Sunday, March 8.

Machinist Harry McKee, 62, is another of those staying home, watching the world go by. "I've got my wife, grandson and dog. We're happy," said McKee. "I hope the rest of the men are enjoying their vacations as much as I am." McKee works at the Pittsburgh Works of Jones & Laughlin Steel Corp. He's been in the mills 45 years, through bitter strikes and layoffs. The urge to travel hits many vacationers right away. Most say they want to see old friends or new places. George VUnlek, S3, a roller in the J&L plant here, headed immediately for Florida. He's staying in a Miami hotel and plans a leisurely return trip to his home in nearby McKeesport, The vacation program was worked out in negotiations last year between major basic steel producers and the United Steelworkers Union. It covers some 450,000 workers in basic steel and has since spread to other steel-related plants. The plan provides 13-week vacations each five years for the 50 per cent of the work force with the most seniority. It's figured on a companywide basis, not plant by plant. Missouri farming country?

The action seeks to have the law declared unconstitutional and to enjoin Throckmorton from carrying out its povisions. Among contentions of the plaintiffs are that the law is vague and indefinite and that it makes an unconstitutional delegation of legislative power to the sate superintendent and to county planning boards which were created under the law.

Neither are there records of black bobcats or wildcats. House cats which have reverted to the wild state could be black but they are not known to grow to such size as this animal. "I don't know what the animal may be," Hills, a retired rural mail carrier, said. "It exists, I am sure, because I have been told about it by too many people whose word 1 cannot doubt." "There definitely is some such anumal," Culley said, "but I don't know what it is." Jim Keefe, information director of the Conservation Commission, said the descriptions given just don't match up with any known species. "But panther* or cougars were prevalent in Missouri a a hundred years ago," Keefe added. "The last definite kill of one was in 1927 in Mississippi County (extreme southeast Missouri). These panthers can grow to a length of six to eight feet and weigh from 80 to 200 pounds. Their paws are about three inches across. They are primarily predators of deer and with the increasing number of deer in Missouri, naturalists say it is possible the panther also may return to this state. "However, we have thousands of deer hunters in the woods every fall and none has brought in a verified report of a panther. It seems that many hunters surely would stumble upon one."
