"I doubt very much that the testimony of such witnesses is admissible, and we mean to raise many points of law to show that it is not," Ritzi declared. "We cannot understand what the defense is trying to prove with j such witnesses, all of whom havej been damaged by stories in Con-j fidential. ! Ritzi said also- "The purported or alleged truth of other articles has nothing to do with the articles on which we're basing our case." As the foundation of their case, Ritzi and Clarence Linn, assistant state attorney general, have listed articles about Maureen O'Hara, Dorothy Dandridge, Dick Powell, Robert Mitchum, Corinne Calvet, Mae West, John Carroll, Mark; Stevens, Frank Sinatra and Alan Dale. weather, making the prescribed radio checks. At 2:07 p.m. he reported passing over Quebec. Canon Alexandre DeBloir, out visiting sick parishioners at Ste ['Croix about five miles" from the.! crash scene, said he saw the plane flying very low when It fan into a summer thunderstorm. Lightning lashed this farm area on the south bank Of the St. Lawrence. "When 1 retu/ned to Ste. Croix, the nuns who run the presbytery said they had seen a plane flying very low. Seconds' later there had been a frightening blast," the parish priest said. "They thought it was a highway crash." There was no 3 p.m. radio report to Montreal, the next check point, along the plane's route. For several hours the plane was listed as missing. Then the pilot of a plane operated by a subsidiary ..of Maritime sighted burning wreckage. A Royal Canadian Air Force plane from Trenton, Ont., dropped three para-rescue men at the scene. They messaged: "There are no survivors." Maritime officials said they had "absolutely no idea of what caused the plane to crash/'. Ramsay had been with Maritime two years. A. Canadian Transpbrt Department Inquiry board suspended his license for six months late in 1954 after blam­ ing him for negligence in the crash of a Trans-Canada Super-. Constellation near Brampton, Ont. The Canadian Air Lines Pilots', Assn. said pilot's fatigue was responsible for that nonfatal crash. Maritime officials described Ramsay as a "good, well-trained pilot." Pvt. Jerome Wiskus Home from N. Mex. (flimi Herald Hervtee) DEDHAM—Pvt.

The Whole Town is Talking About the Way BEDROOM Prices are Slashed Iowa Filings Indicate More New Businesses DES MOINES I* — There is a "high level of new business activity in Iowa," Secretary of State Melvin D. Synhorst said Monday. He referred to the fact that 82 new Iowa firms filed articles of incorporation with him in July. That was the highest number for any month since the 107 in March of last year.The highest previous total for one month this year was 70 in April. Meanwhile, all other type* of corporate filings with Synhorst's office have continued at about the usual rate. "The number of new for-profit Iowa firms filing in the summer usually . slows down," Synhorst commented. He added: "But the July filings mean there is a high level of new business activity in Iowa. This is a trend everyone should be glad to see. There has been a constant effort by various civic and government units to attract new business in Iowa." In addition to filings of new Iowa profit-making corporations, the secretary of state's office also handles the permits for new foreign corporations coming into Iowa, and those for nonprofit and cooperative organizations.
