Scotland Yard Checking Clues In Rail Robbery By. RAYMOND E. PALMER LONDON (AP)-Scotland Yard experts, studying 15 sets of fingerprints found at the farm hideout used by the great train robbery gang 10 days ago, hoped, today that the ; prints would identify more ' of the ' men who got away with $7,28 million. The prints were found in buildings at isolated Leatherslade Farm at Oakley, the gang's hideout 18 miles from where the Glasgow-London mail train was held up. Police hoped they would match prints in the yard's criminal records. Other possible clues included: —A Monopoly set, a card game .usually played with stage money but believed used by gang members playing with their banknote loot while they waited in their hideout to make their getaway. —A house in a respectable district of London where, detectives were told, 12 men began holding night meetings behind darkened windows last March. —Five men sought for questioning because they have been absent from their homes since the robbery. —A trail of five-pound banknotes in St. Helier, Jersey, one of the Channel Islands. —A suitcase and e briefcase found stuffed with 5282,520 in £ Surrey, wood last Friday. —A ;second-hand black Austin Healey sports car, found in i parking lot where it had been left by a dapper man and a plump pockmarked woman. The couple bought the car for $2,338—all in five-pound notes—the day after the robbery. Police found the car Friday night after giving nationwide pub licity to its registration numbe: and to a descrption of the cou pie. Richard Jamas, an employe o the 'firm that sold the auto to the couple, said the police knew th< registration number and detail of the sale when they came t check on the buyers. The implica tion was that they already knev a good deal about the activitie of the couple.

Alliance Program Bill .5 Billion WASHINGTON (AP) — The Alliance for Progress, President Kennedy's master plan for helping Latin American nations, has cost U.S. taxpayers $2.5 billion. There are mixed views on how well it is doing.

A long weekend of second anniversary observance will be climaxed here Tuesday. Kennedy will meet with Alliance for Progress visitors and Vice President L,yndon B. Johnson will address the Organization of American States. Kennedy said in a weekend statement that he was "heartened by the advances that have seen made in a short space of :ime," but cautioned that much more needs to be done. A gloomier assessment came recently from a former Brazilian Dresident, Juscelino Kubitschek, ,vho reported to the OAS in June that the alliance suffers from "uncoordinated and confused implementation" and is "drifting farther and farther away from the needs and aspirations of the Latin American people." The record on self-help and re- iorm by the Latin American countries — termed the "cornerstone of the alliance" — is spotty. To File Plans for School Desegregation BIRMINGHAM, Ala.

If the Arizona Republican vote: against ratification of a treaty he has called "one small Step toward peaceful coexistence" of a kind that could only give "tyranny a protected sanctuary from which it can erode or attack freedom," he will set himself apart from a majority of politicians in both parties. , •• By a negative vote he would sharpen — if, indeed, they need sharpening —; his foreign policy differences with President Kennedy. Kennedy is certain to be his party's nominee for a second term. ' That the Democrats intend to plug the treaty in next year's campaign as a significant step toward world peace was indicated in today's issue of the party organ, Democrat." A front page story is- bannered "Test Ban Support Grows." In mentioning opposition, to ..the treaty, it refers to Goldwater as a "frequent ally" of the, "far right-John Birch element." ' A "no" vote by Goldwater on the treaty would add to the already voluminous evidence that if he were the Republican nominee opposing Kennedy he would be no "me too" candidate. Such a vote would pur him at odds with a majority of his Senate GOP colleagues and probably the big majority of the party leaders. He said in an interview that while he hasnt' finally made up his mind he is inclined to vote against the treaty wh'ch would ban all but underground tests. He said he has not been satisfied by pledges received from the administration that American efforts to develop new nuclear defenses won't be slowed down by the treaty. But Goldwater has left the way open to vote for the treaty if the Senate preparedness subcommittee, of which he is a member, comes up with a satisfactory report on the military aspects of the pact.

HO fi-T7?J USSR to Give Factory to Yugoslavia MOSCOW (AP)-On the eve of Premier Khrushchev's visit to Yugoslav President Tito, the Soviet Union today announced the gift of a factory to manufacture prefabricated housing sections for the quake-ravaged city of Skopje. Observers saw it as a bid to rival the popularity of U.S. aid to the city before Khrushchev tours Skopje later this week; There already is a Soviet army demolition unit working in Skopje wrecking damaged buildings. The Soviet aid, however, has been overshadowed by the arrival of a U.S. Air Force field hospital immediately after, the Skopje earthquake and the later U.S. gift of $50 million for relief. .At the time, ' Yugoslavs were saying, "The; United States sent us a hospital: the Soviet Union a telegram." This was a reference to a cable from Khrushchev expressing condolences. Khrushchev's plans for traveling to Yugoslavia were secret. He is scheduled :'to spend a week or 10 days with Tito.

WouldTestlO'Hour Meters on Market A 90 •> day test of new 10-hoiir parking meters on Market street, between 3rd and 6th, will be recommended by Mayor P. W. Day to the Alton city council's finance committee at Us next meeting. The meters have been offered free of charge for fKJ-day trial, said Day, and he will ask the committee to accept the offer and make Market the testing area. The mayor believes. that replacement of 2 • hour meters oil the west side of Market with 10 * hour meters will Indrease patronage of the, •','Market street meters and better Serve' the public, The 10 - hour meters Would sell parking time,at 2 hours; for a nickel with maximum of 10 hours for a total of a quarter.! The offer of a'manufacturer to install new meters for a: free trial, Day suggests, Will serve as Q test whether long * time meters are more heeded on Market than the 2-hour variety, and at :he same time, will test reliability of the meters offered. Already referred to the aldermanic finance committee Is a resolution of the mayor proposing replacement of the city's present out - worn meters without necessity of a bond issue. New meters, Day said, may be acquired on a time - payment plan. The company offering a free test of its meters has offered to take payment at about $1.25 a meter per month or on a basis of 40 percent of the city's monthly receipts from its meters. Because of age and worn mechanical condition of the city's present parking meters, and be- cause the model,Is tfow but of production,,Day's resolution proposes that a suitable plan lot their replacement bo devised ahd the mayor aiid public \v6rki department authorised to Carry It out. The city flow has 1,232 meters, but Day said It Would not be nee- essary for all to be replaced at one time. Estimated IS that about 900 meters need Immediate - replacement and that new metera would Increase the city's revenue by about 15 percent. Present worn meters are resulting In high maintenance costs and a loss ot revenue as meters get out of order and thereby lose earning'capacity. Day estimated there are about 50 parking stalls on the west side of Market that should be equipped with new 10 - hour meters. There now are a few 10 • hour meters near the 6th Street end of the lot, but most of the present Installation Is of the 2 - hour type. The mayor expressed the belief that new meters may be obtained without Interfering In any way with the plans for obtaining additional off - street parking lots and for paying of the last bonds on the present off-street lots by next spring. 62 Dead, 67 Missing In Ferry Sinking NAHA, Okinawa (AP) — A police checklist today showed that (i2 persons were known dead and 67 missing in the sinking of the Okinawa ferry boat Midori Maru off Naha Saturday, Congratulations To JEAN LESSLY Brussels, III.
