Police said Moyer and Miss Baldwin walked into the White-T Super Value store in Fairfield Monday night, filled a cart with groceries and went to the checkout counter. Paul White, owner of the store, said Moyer drew a small pistol and ordered him to fill a bag with money. The two escaped with $580. Police gave this account: Highway patrolman Donald Woods spotted the getaway car northwest of Fairfield about two hours later, stopped the car and ordered the pah 1 out. Miss Baldwin complained of ili- . ness and went to the back of the car while the patrolman radioed tor hdp. She apparently slipped a 32 caliber pistol to Moyer when she returned. Moyer fired twice at Woods jusi as Patrolman B. D. Hall and Policeman Bill Angstead drove up. Woods ran for cover and was not hit Police returned Moyer's fire and he was brought down 30 feet from the car. Fairfield police said Illinois authorities have warrants accusing Moyer of three liquor store robberies within recent weeks. The Illinois information says a total of fl.586 was taken in two robberies of the same liquor store in De Kalb and one at Rochelle.

LOUIS (AP) — Missouri voters will decide in November whether the next governor will be Democratic Atty, On. .Tohn M. Dallon or Republican State Rep. Edward 15. Farmer Jr. Dalton won the Democratic nomination Tuesday in a landslide. His final vote in the primary was more than 350,000 over his nearest competitor.

Case Hopes For Serious Session By EBNE8T B. VACCABO WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Clifford P. Case (R-NJ) said today be hopes the Senate will keep political grandstanding to a minimum and buckle down to serious work when it meets again Monday. Caw said most senators already have had "a glorious opportunity to let off steam" at the Los Angeles and Chicago political conventions. Another call for serious Senate action came Tuesday night from Sen. Joseph S. Clark (D-Pa). He asked for major changes in Senate rules to open the way for a "hundred days" of action next year on Democratic proposals Clark said that during the post- convention session he will introduce rules changes to eliminate the filibuster, prevent time-wasting on irrelevant speeches and strip committee chairmen of much of their power to bottle up bills. Clark's proposals obviously were too sweeping for a short session to handle. The House does not inert ejtin until Aug. 15.

(AP)Two men questioned in the death of a Shawneetown woman have been cleared by lie detector tests and witnesses who came forward late Tuesday. State's Attorney James Gullet said lie detector tests were given to 44-year-old Herschel Angeleton and 35-year-old Charles Mathews, both of rural Cave-in-Rock. Gullet said the two men admited drinking with Mrs. Anna Mae Fuller, 40, before she was found dead early Monday. She was struck by a car while lying in State Highway 1, 8 miles north of Cave-in-Rock. Frederick A. Orman, 21-year-old Cave-in-Rock resident who was driving, told authorities he saw the woman stretched across the road and was unable to avoid hitting her. Authorities who examined the body were unable to determine whether she was killed by the car or dead before it hit her. Gullett, terming the death an apparent accident, quoted witnesses who came forward Tuesday as saying they saw the woman walking unsteadily along the road shortly before she was struck. Seventeen-year-old Ernest Crider and his father, Dewey, of Cave- in-Rock, said they had to swerve their car when they saw the woman walking in one lane of the highway. Another motorist, Danny Blair, 17, of Cave-in-Rock—said he saw the woman bitting at the side of the road with her feet and legs in the highway. Ainjeleton and Mathews told Gullet they accompanied the woman to Cave-in-Rock after attending a picnic with her in Old Siiawnee- town. AnjjeltUon said I if left Mrs Fuller and Muthcwu at Mathews' cabin. Mathews told Gullett he fell asleep and awoke to find Mrt>. Fuller tone lit- buid he learned south portions Thursday. Contract for Rasitig of Building OKd Award of a contract by Cityi Council to Anthony LaRoss Wrecking Co. for $1,400 on the demolition of a two-story building at 523 Belle St. has been approved by the Illinois Division of Highways, making possible an early start on the removal of the old stracture. The building was acquired under the city MFT project for opening W. 6th street from Piasa to Belle. The award of the contract was subject to approval of the Division of Highways because cost is to be defrayed from motor fuel tax funds. Included in the project is removal of some concrete foundation walls of a former outbui'ding on the site, and the refilling of the basement excavation of the brick building with sand. The city is having the building, which is very old, removed because of its rundown condition which made it inadvisable for leasing in the period while the street opening program is further advanced. LaRoss was named low bidder on July 11 when proposals were received by the city. Jury Rules Smoking Is Cancer Cause MIAMI, Fla. (AP)—Smoking is at least a factor in lung cancer, a federal jury has decided, but it refused to blame the cigarette maker. The jury declined Tuesday to assess any damages against the American Tobacco Co. The estate of Edwin Green, who died of lung cancer, had asked more than one million dollars. The plaintiff contended Green devejoped cancer of the left lung as a heavy smoker for 30 years of the firm's Lucky Strikes,* with an occasional switch to other brands. Green, himself, started the suit before his death. American Tobacco challenged lung cancer as cause of Green's death at age 49 in 1958. It also disputed that smoking causes can- tine Hid on Com pact Police Car Received Only one bid on a compact car for the police department was received at a bid opening in the office of City Manager G. W. Watt, Tuesday afternoon. Submitting the lone proposal was Chuck Diering Ford Sales which offered a Falcon sedan, with automatic drive, at $1,950.90. Watt said today that the proposal was taken under advisement, pending a check on performance of the model offered, and interior space it affords. Watt said he hpd expected a number of bids. Some dealers sent word they were unprepared to offer proposals at mis time. The car to be added to the police fleet under a budget appropriation approved last spring, is also to be radio equipped. Two bids on radio equipment were received yesterday,' one at $795, the other at $798. Specifications called for transistor type radio equip[ ment so the power required would be minimal.

"Too many of our rights." he continued, "are being sacrificed for the sake of expediency, and our league intends to fight this sacrificial erosion." The SICL was organized and issued an Illinois state charter in October 1959 as a civic, nonprofit organization to promote equitable taxation. Its membership, presently 2,200. is supporting the league's initial task of opposing the imposition of the Missouri state income tax and the St. Louis city earnings tax on Illinois residents who work in Missouri, Barnett said. •»••« -'"V. ........ ....»»... i KIIUIU, WIIU IIIMfMHU lin ..l»»il j «•«..._ • II—* r The Atlas engine ignited, but an jpaiBI1 , )y str etcher nnri wheelchair;'™' l < p an *a™™ *° ™ e » rt °' automatic sequence device detec-! nft ,,,. a '„„,.«. f»>|| and broke the PC rmissnble used Of premise* in manufacturing nisi nets so ted a malfunction and ordered 'legislator's leg. will face Carna- ' missile lorkiil: h an'K Ropublicnn brother-in-law,!<»<" th " ^\t\mtrr may operate Karl Schupp of Van Huron. ini» g°- kart trar>k trampolines November.
