Standing By His Story WiWerne ^/|^pTON m -Air Force LI David Steeves is standing by hi: story.-.that he lived for 54 days in the rugged High Sierras after hit jet plane crashed. Knd in California, Supt. Thomas J Allen of Kings Canyon National Park said rangers had found evidence that Steeves had hiked some 25 miles through what Allen called "very, very rough country." Steeves, who emerged from the wilderness on July 1, said '"I told the story as it happened." He made this statement Wednesday after the Saturday Evening Post announced its decision to cancel a scheduled article on the incident. A spokesman for the magazine said an agreement to publish the article was ended last week because he said Clay Blair Jr., the writer assigned to the story, had detected numerous discrepancies. Steeves said he knows of no discrepancies. Allen said members of his staff had retraced parts of the route reportedly followed by Sleeves on his survival march. He said they visited Simpson Meadow and Dusy Basin 10 days after Steeves turned up after having been given up for dead. .' " "~ The park superintendent said rangers found an opened parachute and a handkerchief bearing Steeves' initials. Allen said the find indicated Steeves made the hike from the basin to the meadow, a distance of about 25 miles. Steeves' plane, a jet trainer, has not been found.

British Guiana Iff)—A new government for Britain's lone colony on the shoulder of South America is expected to be. formed within 72 hours by Dr. Cheddi Jagan, a Communist. Gov. Sir Patrick Renison called Jagan, overwhelming victor in Monday's general elections, to a conference Thursday to discuss his appointment as chief minister and ask him to set up a cabinet. Japan told newsmen the election result proved British Guiana was ready for political independence like the newly established state of Ghana on the West African Coast. He said he was "prepared to play ball with the governor but it could not be played by one side only" in forming a new government. Georgetown newspapers said despite Jagan's known Red views Britain has prepared to give him another chance as head of the government. But they emphasized Jagan would get nowhere if he tried to; establish a Communist govern-! ment in this colony. They reminded him he was deposed as chief minister four years ago for attempting to set up Red rule. MISS AMERICAN LEGION SWIMMING POOL 1957 ...

Joining the controversy started by > Lord Altrincham — that the Queen's court is out of date and that she gets bad advice from her advisers — The British Weekly said: ''The fact is that our present Queen is 'sold' to the people not as a queen, a person whose office in our constitutional system is important, but as a movie queen, as one-up-on-the-Americans, as a spectacle, as an. excuse for national-dressing-up and other irrel; evant but easy gimmicks." The British Weekly is edited by the.Rev. Shaun Herron, a 45-year- old Scottish Congregationalism The magazine describes Itself as "a Christian journal of news and comment." It has no official connection with any church. Britain's official Newspaper Press Directory calls it: "A religious, political and literary work, read by free churches (not associated with the Church of England) in Britain, the Dominions^ and the United States." The weekly {njected a new angle into the hulabaloo over the monarchy % suggesting that the 33- year-old Altrincham is the spokesman for the Queen's real friends in high places. "Why, by the'way," it asked, "is it being assumed that Lord Altrincham is not the mouthpiece for a move by some of the highly, placed and real friends. of the monarchy?" The publication said there are members of the royal household who want a monarchy that can survive in hard times as well as today's prosperity. REPRIMAND ATTORNEY DES MOINES —J. Riley McManus.
