(AP Wlrephoto Map) lantlc Coast down to South Carolina, Red Chinese Attack Nepalese Patrol, Report KATMANDU, Nepal (AP)-Premier B. P. Koirala said today mat a Nepali border patrol officer has been killed and 15 Ne- palis captured by Chinese Communist forces operating on the border of Tibet. His statement corrected an earlier official announcement that 15 had been killed and 12 captured in the incident last week at Mustang. Mustang lies in a valley of northwest Nepal projecting into Tibet The government said (he Chinese fired without provocation. Home Minister H. P. Upadhaya told the lower house of Parliament that a strong protest has been filed with Peiping, which signed a treaty of friendship with Koirala's government in March. Koirala 'was interviewed after the announcement of the incident. Referring to the latest message from Mustang he said: "Only one man, a Nepali checkpost officer, was killed by Chinese bullets and 15 Nepali nationals were arrested. Last August the Chinese captured a checkpost in the Indian Northeast Frontier Agency, killing 'three men. The Reds claimed the post was in Tibet. In October an Indian patrol was ambushed inside territory claimed by India. But Red China said the patrol invaded Tibetan territory and attacked. One report several months ago said Chinese troops had penetrated the Mustang area and had tried to collect taxes from peasants. Mustang was once a semi-independent feudal holding with only a loose tie to Nepal. The Nepal government announced Tuesday night it had received a note from Peiping admitting the first time the renewal ol rebellion in Tibet. The note said it had been necessary to send troops into the 12%-mile zone along the Tibetan-Nepalese border which a temporary border agreement on March 21 had demilitarized. Peiping assured Katmandu the Chinese troops would not violate Nepal's territory and would be withdrawn when the rebellion was crushed. In New Delhi, the Times of India today reported that an Meeting on Zoning Set ForFileGym BETHALTO — A meeting at the File Gymnasium in Bethai- to at 7:30 p.m. Thursday will end a series of five sessions planned to acquaint Madison County residents with a proposal for land use and zoning controls in unincorporated areas. Residents of six town' ships have been invited to attend the public information meeting. Included are Fort Russell, Godfrey, Foster, Moro, Wood River and Alton Town ships. ' Speakers will include William Owens, representing the planning staff of Everett Kincaid and Associates; Thomas Butler of Alton, president of the Madison County Plan Commission, and Alton May of Alton, chairman of the zoning and subdivi. sion control committee of the Madison County Board of Supervisors. In Illinois 13 counties have adopted county zoning. In 1935 the present general county zoning act was passed by State Legislation enabling county boards to adopt comprehensive zoning restrictions on the use of land and buildings in the county areas outside the jurisdiction of incorporated areas. At a recent meeting similar to the one scheduled in Bethalto William Lawrence of Kincaid and Associates told an audience that years ago "industry located where it pleased, produced any amount of noise and smoke without regard for neighbors." "Under land use and zoning, industries could easily be mistaken for public libraries," he said. The Madison County Board oi Supervisors contracted Kincaid and Associates of Chicago to complete a land use study and provide the board with /oning recommendations. Law -requires the Board of Supervisors to conduct public hearings in each of the county's municipalities Weather Forecast Alton and vicinity — Considerable sunshine, hot and humid with chance of thundershowers late this afternoon or evening, high in the low 90s; considerable cloudiness with occasional thundershowers tonight, and Thursday.

Blodgett, Alton, vice president; and Mrs. Harry Cass, Rosewood Heights, secretary- treasurer. Mrs. Erie A. Sturley of Alton will continue to serve as corresponding secretary. Mrs. Blodgett described a new life insurance plan for parents of mentally handicapped chil dren which the National Assn. for Retarded Children has developed in cooperation with the Equitable Life Assurance Society of the United States. Parents were requested to register for nformation kits which the NARC will make available soon. Parents were reminded that mem ership in their local association is necessary to be eligible for the group insurance plan. A. Y. Arrhstead, recreation committee chairman, announcec Day Camp dates for retarded children are July 25 through Aug. 5. This is the third year the Alton Recreation and the MCARC have offered a two- week Day Camp to mentally handicapped children in tho area.

HAAKKVSOJV WASHINGTON (AP) — A compromise defense bill of Just under 40 billion dollars today offered the Eisenhower administration most of its major military requests, plus some 650 million it opposed. A Senate-House conference committee, compromising differences between the two bodies, gave the bill its final form late Tuesday. The House will talte up the revised measure Friday. Senate action also is required. House spokesmen agreed to 293 million to build a new attack aircraft carrier for the Navy; 244 million to produce Bomarc antiaircraft missiles; and 190 million to speed development of the Air DogWarden To Work *•*••»«* „» DEMOLISHED HOME QUINCY—This home was almost cut in half by struck from the north to northwest and caused severe large tree which was uprooted during storm that damage across entire city.

(AP) — Dr. Barbara Moore, changing her plans today, chose to take a less mountainous route on her walk to Washington, D. C. The 56-year-old British vegetarian elected to walk here from Sick of Shoddy Goods In short, many a consumer is sick of shoddy goods. He would rather have quality goods than mere money. On the books, consumer production is there, but it is far from the quality the Soviet citizen is beginning to demand. The attitude apparently has been transmitted to the Kremlki. Seeking remedies, however, is difficult, since the remedies often can be contrary to Communist dogma. Capitalist-like measures bave been an outgrowth of Premier Nikita Khrushchev's policies, and probably are among the 'many factors that provoke annoyance among hidebound, reactionary Stalinists in high places. Khrushchev has tried to follow a line of persuastion, rather than coercion, in keeping the Soviet public in line. But persuasion implies incentives and rewards. The consumer industry does not produce quality sufficient lor rewards, nor can it without upsetting Soviet dogma.

The planned Soviet With returns reported from 1,525 •of the state's 2,310 precincts, the unofficial tabulations showed: Davis—80,082. Burdick-76,764. Returns from the farm areas, reporting hours after the cities, cut deeply into the governor's early lead. At one time, he was more than 8,000 votes ahead of Burdick and coasting along with a comfortable 56 per cent of the total ballot. But as the figures from the outlying rural areas came in, Democrats predicted a Burdick victory by as much as 5,000 votes. Claims Victory "We've got it in the bag," said Scott Anderson, Democratic campaign director. "It's only a matter of time." Davis, however, said he was still confident'of victory. "We were worried for a while," he said, "but now we're standing up straight. It looks like it will go down to the wire." This is the nation's first head-on collision between the two major parties in a farm state. As such, it may indicate dissatisfaction throughout the farm belt with the agriculture program as administered by Secretary Ezra Taft Benson. Analysts in both parties are watching the North Dakota election with an eye on the November battle for the presidency. Davis, as expected, rolled up a commanding lead in the cities. He did not, however, do as well in this election as he did in 1958 when he defeated John Lord, a Democratic attorney, for the governorship. Margin Cut Two years ago, Davis carried Fargo, the largest city, by 64 per cent; today his margin is 58 per cent. He carried Minot by 58 per cent in 1958, and 51 per cent today. In Bismarck, the capital, his 1958 edge was 64 per cent as against 62 per cent today. In short, the governor did not come out of the cities with as economy i long a lead as he was expected 1 {addition to uie anme injury, sui- — .. . , L , . .,»*,_ .

The listing showed 1,700 male or neuter dogs, and 248 females. Thursday is the last day for owners to license dogs without incurring a penalty for delay, and there has been a license rush in progress since last Friday when it was anonunced full enforcement of the dog control code would begin this week. In the past three days, 180 dogs were licensed. Yesterday 45 were licensed. Two reports of persons being bitten by dogs were recorded by police Tuesday evening. John Henkhaus, 72, of 209 Oak St., Bethalto was treated in St. Joseph's Hospital at 8 p.m. after being bitten on the left knee when at E. 6th and Oak streets. Earlier, Mrs. Franklin Gray of 511 Brookside Ave. reported her son, Dwayne Gray, 13, a newspaper carrier, had suffered a dog bite. He was treated at Memorial Hospital. Police ordered the dogs restrained for a two-week observation period as the dog code provides. CastroAgain Threatens Business By ROBERT BERRELLEZ HAVANA (AP) — Prime Minister Fidel Castro threatened in a towering rage today to seize American investments in Cuba "penny by penny until nothing is left" if the United States cuts its purchases of Cuban sugar. Castro made this threat to a cheering, post-midnight rally of the giant Sugar Workers' Federation held in Artemisa, 60 miles southwest of Havana. It was his 10th major speech in 24 days and the bitterest anti - American dja- tribe he has yet delivered. Stung by the bill now before the U.S. Congress to authorize the President to cut the U.S. quota of Cuban sugar at will, Castro shouted that for every pound of sugar removed from the quota, his regime would take over an American-owned sugar mill. U. S. interests own 36 sugar mills in Cuba, but Castro made clear his threats extended to all other American interests in Cuba, valued at more than a half billion dollars. "We'll take and take until not even the nails of their soles are left," he told his cheering audience. The bearded Prime Minister denounced the new U.S. sugar bill— which was unanimously approved by the House Agriculture Committee Monday—as "stupid and criminal" and called the U.S. government decadent. He repeatedly referred to Americans as "gringos." Castro indicated his government might turn sugar land to other uses if it cannot sell sugar to the United States at the premium price it now gets under the sugar quota act. "If sugar cane is left over," he said, "we will devote that land to other purposes, to grains, vegetables and other products."
