Former Skating Champ Shot and Killed by Wife MINK01.A. N. Y. (AP)-Earl Van Horn, 62, former roller-skating champion, was shot to death j early today by his wife after a j bitter argument in their home, police reported. The wife. Jean, 35. is a onetime polio victim whom Van Horn induced to take up skating as therapy for her paralysis. She not only overcame her physical difficulties but in time became a skating star herself. Mrs. Van Horn was quoted as saying she and her husband had argued frequently over his late arrival home at night, often after a few drinks. She told officers another angry squabble ensued when he came in at 3 a.m. today after having been drinking. After more than two hours, she said, she grabbed a shotgun and pointed it at him. Officers said Van Horn, thinking it was unloaded because he recently had removed a supply of shells from the house, told his wife with a smile: "Go ahead and shoot." The blast hit him in the chest. Mrs. Van Horn was quoted as saying she had reloaded the gun after discovering a box of shells apparently overlooked by her husband. Amid the dispute, a 12-year-old daughter called out several times from her bedroom asking the par- ents to "keep quiet, I'm trying to sleep." The girl, Gretchen, telephoned police after hearing the shot. i For more than 20 years he had been co-owner of a skating rink in this Long Island community. Mrs. Van Horn was his second wife. He obtained a divorce fr<3m his first wife, Inez, to marry her in the late 1940s. The first wife has been serving as manager of the skating rink. Friends said Van Horn had undergone two cancer operations during the past year, and had been in much pain during recent months. His wife, it was said, has been subject to "blackouts" of late and had been forbidden to drive a car. The couple had two other children, Earl Jr., 10, and Lisa, 3.

IN HOSPITAL (Times Herald News Service) AUBURN — Mrs. Edward Put- Drese is a medical patient in the McCrary-Rust Hospital at Lake City. Underweight? You're Likely to Have Longer Life NEW YORK (AP)—If you're 15 to 20 pounds underweight, you j are likely to live longer than peo- 'ple of average weight—and a lot longer than people who are overweight. This was one of the conclusions of a four-year study by the Society of Actuaries which Monday issued the first insurance industry report of its kind in 30 years. The survey also developed new average weight charts to replace those they have been used in doctors' offices and on weighing machines since 1929. The charts indicate men are considerably beefier than they used to be and women more slender. The study cost 2Vz million dollars. It involved five million Americans. Other findings of the study: Women are healthier than men. Women carry high blood pressure and additional weight with less risk. Extreme underweight — 40 pounds or so below average- sometimes carries a higher mortality rate than overweight. Overweight persons who reduce gain in life expectancy as long as Lhey keep their weight down. The mortality rate for women tias declined much more than for men. There is some advantage in slight overweight for teen-agers. Space Race is Serious Business, Scientist Says By FRANK CAREY WASHINGTON (AP)—Wernher von Braun said today that unless America steps up its pace in the space race "I suspect we will have to pass Russian customs when we finally reach the moon." Von Braun, chief scientist at the Army's Ballistic Missile Agency at Huntsville, Ala., predicted further: "We may expect to hear a Russian accented voice coming from an artificial inhabited satellite roaming our American skies.' He spoke at a breakfast meeting of the National Assn. of Food Chains. ''I do not. believe the American people will accept second place. Yet it is painfully clear that we are behind. It is just as clear that the other fellow is building up a momentum that will enable him t> - . carry out even more astonishing experiments shortly," he said. Von Braun said he is convinced (hat "it would definitely speed up our national space program if we could have a little more program stability and confidence in our proved rocket teams, and a little less official re-evaluations and re- justifications." "As a nation," he said, "we are also making a fundamental mistake if we consider this space business as nothing but an exciting if silly race between rival missile teams or a weightlifting con- test between rocket engineers and scientists. "The Communist challenge goes far beyond that. It extends across the entire spectrum of human activities. It challenges you and every other American." "It has become a .contest between free men and a society that accepts state control over every thought, word and deed. Having survived that kind of environment (as a scientist working under the Nazis during World War II) I don't want my children or yours to endure it," he said.
