Section 2 ""•*rr"- TFTFITRAPH A JLJJLJJLJvJAlJmJL XX Established rrT'Tf n-ia 1338/ ALTON, ILL,,-FRIDAY, AUGUST 9, 1963 1C Pet dopy Member of The A&aoelated t*feii« Couple Ask .5 Million For Privacy SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Hock Island, ill., couple filed a elally $1.5 million invasion of privacy Fair, suit in Federal Court Thursday against First Dakota - National Bank ot Yalikton, S.D. Named in the suit by Mr, and Mrs. John E. Walsh were Charles I. Dantorth, president of the corporation; H.C. Dantorth, a Cashier al the bank, and the bank itself. The Danforlhs are directors of the bank. The Walshes claimed the Don- forths and other officers of the bank invaded their privacy for more than three years by disclosing the couple's business dealings without consent or legal authority. The plaintiffs claimed that they and their three children have been held up to public scorn and ridicule in both Yankton and Rock Island because the Dan. forths revealed circumstances oi a real estate transaction and ol the general financial condition of the Walshes after a $25,000 loan had been repaid. Mr. and Mrs. Walsh, residents of Yankton prior to Aug. 31, 1960, claim In part that the Danforths tried to collect more money than was due them on a $25,000 loan. On Nov. 8, 1951, the plaintiffs said they obtained the $25,000 loan from the defendant bank as a first mortgage on the Walshes' $85,000 home in Yankton. The Veterans Administration allegedly issued a guarantee and insurance for the loan. The Walshes said they repaid 512,906.35 in principal and interest on the first-mortgage loan between December 1951 and November 1959, and that an attempt was made to repay the balance of the loan when the plaintiffs sold the Yankton property in July 1960. The plaintiffs claim their debt to the defendant bank was set- i as (. year . tied on Nov. 20, 1960, when they repaid $22,500 to the defendants and obtained a general release to claims. New- Lead In Chicago Rape-Killing CHICAGO (AP)-Police sought a tall, muscular man today for questioning in the murder of Diahe Taylor, 8, after a waitress told of seeing a limp child being carried in the West Side area a few hours before the girl's body was found nearby. A 29-year-old mother Thursday gave the newest possible lead to the sex-slayer in an account to an employe of the coroner's office who stopped for coffee at the drug store where the woman works as a clerk-waitress. The woman, whose identity was not disclosed, said a: young, muscular man in his early 30's passed within four feet of her last Friday night as she left work, He was carrying a child, apparently asleep. The blonde girl's nude body- beaten, raped and stabbed—was found the follosving morning about a mile away in an alley. She had disappeared from her home- about 1% miles away—two days before. The waitress, who said she could identify the man, studied photographs of known sex offenders at police headquarters. She related that she had looked the man right in the eye and he didn't appear nervous. "I thought the child looked too old to be carried,'" the woman told police. "Pier arms and legs hung loosely. I thought she must be asleep." For awhile, detectives thought that the scene of the slaying had been discovered. But what had at first appeared to be clues In an old, vacant house a block from the Taylor home were eliminated in a crime laboratory check as haying nothing ' to do with the case, '••.„•«'" • ,-,./' ' Strips.of,sheeting-found in .the house, wpre not tot the type which partially hid Plane's' body, and a key discovered proved not to.'be of the type slie, had been carrying, , '' *i - Meanwhile, a mystery fire which damaged an automobile parked in the vicinity pf the crJme was checked by police, and in Galesburg, III;, authorities held a former mental patient with a history of sex crimes. ; Galesburg police sold the man, arrested on a charge of public indecency, was living in a Chicago YMCA about the time Diane was murdered and had returned to Galesburg either the night 61 the murder « the following day, Kids Hold Sway on Opening Day of State Fair SPRINGFIELD, III. (AP)-dov. Otto kerncr took a pair of shears from an educated mule and cut a ribbon today in ceremonies officially opening the Illinois State 'air. The 24-year-old mule, although trained for its role, needed assistance to lake sure there was no slipup. The scissors were fastened in the animal's mouth by Us owner, Harry Seller of Decalur. Youngsters cheered and bands played as Kerner, with his wife, Helenas Fair Manager Franklin Rost and Agricultural' Director Robert Schnelter rode in a pony- drawn carriagd'at the head of the parade to the grandstand. Behind them in the governor's car was Dale Robertson, who portrays a western slar on television. • ': " A lew farm events were listed on the first day's program but they were overshadowed by a full card of events for the youngsters, including a king and queen contest, baby pageant, and pigtail and pony tail competition. The weather was .sunny and humid but the kids didn't mind the heat. More than 300 Boy Scouts and numerous baton twirlers ranging from tiny tots to teenagers, joined in the grand parade. Kerner planned to spend most of the day touring the exposition grounds and taking on some challengers in a milking contest after dedication of the new $1 million junior livestock building. Livestock judging, which claims a major share of attention and prize money at the fair, will begin in earnest Saturday with teenagers leading their animals in junior department arenas. Even before the fair opened, livestock entries in both the junior and open competition reached an all-time high. Swine entries totaled 6,586, compared with 3,976 ast year. More than 1,800 beef cattle and 1,963 dairy cattle were registered. The figures represent si/able increases. Illinois officials say that the fair is the world's largest agri cultural exposition. An afternoon of quarterhorse racing will offer $16,000 in prize money, the largest purse for this type of racing in Illinois history. Six days of harness racing with a total offering of more than $400,000, will begin Saturday. Two of the races are considered dresi rehearsals for the Hambletonian at Du Quoin and the Little ,Bro\vn Jug at Delaware, Ohio. Sunday will be deV6ted.<to veterans. Marching and musica' units will compete for $5,000 in awards. Fair .officials were hopeful that with good weather they might attain their goal of 1 million attendance for the entire fair.

Delegates to the federation's Fourth World Assembly said, however, that the race still was wide open.. ,, ........ They will,be guided in the ..balloting Saturday by recommendations of the assembly's nominating committee. It reports today but the report will be secret. There was a strong movement for the re-election of the retiring president, American Dr. Franklin C. Fry. The move would be unprecedented and would require a constitutional amendment with provision for an .interim president to serve for one year. The presidential term is six years. Others regarded as front runners were Dr. Fredrik A. Schiotz, pesident of the American Lutheran Church; German Bishop Hanns Lilje of Hannover, a former federation president, and Norwegian Archbishop Fritjov Brikeli. Some sentiment was expressed against selecting another American. But Dr.. Fry, who was elected in 1957 at Minneapolis, is a popular figure here. Bishop Lilje, named federation president in 1952 .at Hannover, also has a strong following. A leader in the ecumenical move^ ment, he is one of the most prominent Lutheran leaders. The federation tradition of .4LTOIV STATE PROJECT Concrete piling goes into ground at such pilings. The three-story building, Alton State Hospital.

After representatives from oil states teed off on the report in the House this week, Rep. Thomas E. Morgan, D-Pa., suggested that Congress establish a new import control program by law. Suclv a statutory program, he said, should assure that a fair share of. the domestic fuel market, would be open to friendly nations and. at the same time guarantee domestic producers the opportunity to compete for the rest of the market. Rep. Ed Foreman, R-Tex., who led off the attack in the House, said it,is only fair that the Presi- dent state his views about the report, which Foreman called "a bunch of conclusions and recommendations totally lacking in basic data." The renort, prepared by an inter-agency committee headed by Edward A. McDermott, director of the office of emergency planning, criticized state' regulations of oil production, saying, it had increased costs. The report was critical, as welj, of the present program for controlling the flow of imports. Terming the report "unfoundec 'and half-baked," Foreman said the committee, in effect, hac told the President that without controls the price of domestic crude oil could be reduced by $1 a barrel. Rep. Tom Steed, D-Okla., said the report asked one of the mosi important defense industries to commit economic suicide. choosing a president from the nation acting as host to the assembly likely will be broken. ' Among Finnish names mentioned, Bishop Martti Simojoki was reported unwilling to accept because of other responsibilities and Archbishop Limari Salomies was considered too old. He is 70.

Navv Slows f Plans for Sub Buildup By HOWARD BENEDICT CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) —The tragedy of the nuclear submarine Thresher is slowing Navy plans for a quick buildup of the Polaris submarine fleet. Officials estimate a five-month holdup while modifications are made to Polaris subs now being assembled in boatyards. The changes are being made in hopes of preventing a recurrence of the disaster which sank the Thresher last April 10 with loss of 129 lives. Although the Thresher was not a Polaris submarine, the Navy decided to "reschedule construction and overhaul intervals" on all nuclear subs. The decision could delay deployment of Polaris craft with the North Atlantic Treaty Organize tion and in the Pacific and Indian oceans. The nine missile subs now on patrol are in waters off Europe. A Navy spokesman termed the delay minor and reported it is not expected to upset the Navy's timetable which calls for 41 Polaris subs prowling the seas by fiscal 1967. The delay came to light with the arrival here this month of the Alexander Hamilton to practice- fire Polaris missiles in Atlantic waters off Cape Canaveral. The Alexander Hamilton was to be the first of a parade of submarines slated to arrive here at the rate of one a month for 18 months in what Navy men had dubbed the "boat-of-the-month club." The normal procedure has been for a submarine to arrive here two or three months after commissioning, conduct tests for two or three weeks, then spend four months on final shakedown and fitting before going on station SPRINGFIELD, 111.
