(ox said he had seen many occasions while on active diuy where such a system could ' hiive been used. KANSASVILLE—A former! Kansasville man has designed; an "escape tunnel" which he «?ay5 could save lives if an airplane in flight has a damaged landing gear or if its mo-; tors are inoperative and landing would be dangerous. 'Old People's Town' Founded in Denmark COPENHAGEN — A special "old people's town" hax been founded in Copenhagen by the Danish government. The town, within the cily, gives .stMiior citizens necessary services, hot nllows them to be as active as they wish. Residents may live In comfortably furnished one or two- room apartments at low rent.s. A muse \isits ca(~h home e\crv diiv. He is Elmer F. Cox. 46, now of I.aCrosse.

In the case where a crippled aircraft would have its passen- ger.s removed through the escape tunnel, the disabled plane would be set on automatic l)ilot and turned out lo sea or into an open area, be said. Cox explained: "It would be a retractable tunnel, complete Willi lo<ks and e(|uali/.e(l pressure devices, which would f)p- erale similarly to aircraft-in­ flight refueling systems. Ila.<i Other Usc«i Me said another use for such a system would be to place food aboard an aircraft in flight — or lo remove cargo from a crippled' plane in a similar manner. Now a civilian. Cox has been living in I.aCrosse for the last three months. He said recent "near-crashes" of large jet airliners prompted him lo contact legislators, including .Senators Jim, the Crow, Would Rather Ride Than Fly EF.MER F. COX . , . Now a Civilian . . . Humphrey. Proxinirc, Wiley and Symington, and .lames Dur- (ee of the Civil Aeronautics Authority. Sen. Humphrey referred Cox to the National Aviation Agency. Cox also was invited by Wright Patterson lield to go to Ohio for an informal discussion of his plan. HA.STING.S, Mich. — i/P) — One pet on the Lorence Hub- bell dairy farm isn't convinced that distances are shorter a.s the crow flies. Jim, a 2-year-old crow, enjoys riding in a car, on a tractor or on the shoulders of anyone in the ffubbell family. Recently he feigned injury along a side road and was picked up by neighbors who drove him to their home but could find nothing wrong with the wily bird. They learned he wa.s the Hubbell pet and returned him. "He was mighty glad to be ,back," says Mrs. Hubbell. "He sat on a fence and just hollered." .She was surprised at his wandering away, "f-or one thing, his wings are clipped^ and, for another, he's skeptical of strangers," she say.s, Jim was raised frotri a fledgling and is on friendly terms with two dogs aivd two cats who round out the pel men- Jim, the crow on farmer Lorence Hubbcll's shoulder, prefers to ride rather than fly. agerie on the b.W-acre Hubbell farm, . He succeeds the original Jim who fell victim two years ago to an apparently near-sighted! chicken hawk. The original Jim succeeded Roscoe, who started the Hubbell family on its hobby of; making pets of crows. "Ro.scoe just disappeared one day," Mrs. Hubbell says. "I don't think he cared much for civilization." LARGEST IN HAWAII , Most of the 570,0no Hawaiian islanders live on the five largest islands of the group: Hawaii, Maui, Moiokai, Oahu and Kauai.
