Problem Boy Kills Sister, Injures Three VIRGINIA, Minn. MP) — An 18- year-old youth, angered, police said, because his parents shut off a record player, fatally shot his 4-year-old sister and critically wounded his mother Monday night. His father suffered minor wounds and another sister was injured as she attempted to disarm him. Problem Boy Police Lt. Ernest Johnson said the youth, William Niemi Jr., whom he described as a "problem boy" recently released from a state training school; admitted "firing on his family with a pistol and a shotgun. The 4-year-old child, Mary, was slain in her bedroom crib "because she was screaming all the time," Johnson quoted Niemi as saying. Mrs, Niemi was shot twice and was reported in serious condition. Her husband, 41. was shot in the arm by a pistol shot when he fled from the house to summon police. Marilyn, 15-year-old sister, suffered facial burns when her brother fired on her as she sought to disarm him. When police entered the home, Marilyn was lying on the shotgun and gripping it tightly. Had Bee'n Drinking Johnson gave this sequence of events from the boy's oral statement: William had been drinking during the evening while his parents were visiting relatives in a nearby town. They returned home about 11:30 p.m. and Niemi cut down the volume of the record player his son was using. A few minutes later Mrs. Niemi turned off the machine, and her son stormed from the house. He got a .38 caliber pistol from the garage and as his mother appeared on the rear porch, shot her down. The elder Niemi, reading in the kitchen, rushed to his wife's aid and was greeted with a new burst of shooting Wounded in the arm, he ran Jo a neighbor's to summon help. The ammunition for the pistol exhausted, the youth went upstairs and got the shotgun, and killed his small sister before Marilyn disarmed him When police and deputy sheriffs arrived, the youth threatened them from the top of the stairs by swinging a tire chain but was quickly subdued. He was held without charge. Virginia is on the Mesabi iron range about 225 miles northeast of the Twin Cities.

WV-A government witness described Tuesday a series of night meetings, linking segregationist John Kasper with seven other defendants in the Clinton segregation trial. He was Jess Braden, 50, a Clinton policeman. His testimony in U.S. District Court was the strongest so far in support of the federal government's contention that 14 Tennes- seans conspired with Kasper to defy a court order against interference with desegregation of Clinton High School. Braden said he saw Kasper in Clinton frequently "anywhere from seven to 11 nights, even after 12. Once I saw him at 3 a.m." U.S. Dist. Atty. John C. Crawford Jr. asked the officer if he saw other defendants with Kasper. Identify Alt In a dramatic identification scene, the policeman pointed to the line of defendants inside the courtroom rail. He named Lawrence J. Brantley, Alonzo Bullock, Clyde Cook, William Brakebill. Clifford Carter, W. H. Till and Mrs. Mary Nell Currier.

Cox, three-time Ohio governor and a newspaper publisher for more than half a century, was Democratic presidential candidate in 1920 with Franklin D. Roosevelt as his running mate. Warren G.
