KACINE SUNDAY lULLETIN Sunday, July 4, 1965 2A A Look of 7 'Cities' What Is Happening In Independence? (Continued from Page lA) from that town. The Independence Day festivities includes all -day fun at Riverside Park—all programs to be held Monday. Independence, Iowa, reports no special "Fourth" plans — at least no parade. They will hold trotting horse races today. Founded in 1847 The town (population 5,498) was laid out in late June of 1847; the Historical Society says it apparently was named Independence because it was founded so near to July 4. In Kentucky, the Village of Independence (p o p u 1 a tion about 350) was incorporated in 1842. Its name, they say, was selected for "patriotic reasons." The little town along route 17 plans no special July 4 celebration this year; none have been held for many years. Independence, Miss, (population 250) is primarily a dairy and farm community. A lifelong resident of the area said the village's name has been "around for over 100 years." "Will be Quiet" The Fourth, the resident said, "will be celebrated just like any other Sunday ... it'll be real quiet here." Independence, Calif., may be small (population about 250) but the village — located on the east rim of the High Sierra—stages a "whingding- cr" every fourth of July. Independence' p o p u lation swells considerably on the holiday, with folks going to dances and entertainments, listening to speeches, watching the flag raising, and enjoying barbecues and frog races. The California town was founded in 1861 by Charles Putnam, who named it after himself. Later it became known as Little Pine. Named for Camp In 1866, it got its present name after nearby Camp Independence, established by Lt. Col. George S. Evans of the 2d Cavalry on July 4, 1862. Independence, Ohio, a town of 7,000 about eight miles south of Cleveland, will begin holiday festivities when all the church bells start ring ing at 1 p.m. today. Later, the Kiwanis Club will present the city with a new $11,000 ambulance, following by an outdoor concert with the combined local Veterans of Foreign War Band and a band invited from Owen Sound, Canada. Last year, Independence celebrated its 50th year of incorporation and the town has always had the same name. 1,400Yanks Called Home (Continued from Page lA) call to Sec. of Agriculture Orville Freeman in Washington, did some office work then had a swim in his front-lawn pool and rested in the sun shine. In the afternoon, Johnson, as he always does when back home, toured his ranch and looked over his blooded here- fords and other livestock, Dillon Heads Panel Former Sec. of the Treasury Douglas Dillon heads the new monetary panel, appointed by his successor, Henry H. Fowler. The White House announce ment said the Treasury "has been playing an active role in international consultations designed to develop over the long term an adequate supply of world liquidity." It added: "The new committee will provide advice and assistance to those in the government concerned with assessing various alternatives and arriving at the most desirable solution of this potential problem." In mid-afternoon, the Johnsons flew by helicopter to Lake Lyndon B. Johnson for some boating. The president, as is his custom, took the wheel of his 18-foot inboard speedboat and later went aboard a larger cabin cruiser to do some reading and sunning on the foredeck. Maine's northeastern shore is 837 miles east of the Florida city of Jacksonville. Truck Carrying Bombs Hits Car; One Killed FRESNO, Calif. —(JP)— A tractor-trailer rig loaded with ammunition—including three 1,000-pound bombs, crashed into a car and a building and exploded Saturday, killing the driver and demolishing the truck and the building. The highway patrol said the trailer struck a disabled parked car. The car was cut in half. James Dennis Vaughn, 19, and his wife, Patricia, 18, of Long Beach, Calif., sitting in the car, escaped with minor injuries. The truck veered through a fence and crashed into the Rust Cotton Gin Co. and exploded, enveloping the truck and the building in flames. A fire marshal said three-fourths of the explosives, including the three bombs and most of about 100 bomb end cones, exploded. The other ammunition was melted by the intense heat. A driver's license and other papers found in a partially- burned billfold identified the driver as Herbert Winters Straw of Montebello, Calif. A spokesman for the Time Co., Montebello, said Straw was taking the ammunition to Port Chicago, Calif. The highway patrol said damage to the building and cotton ginning equipment had been estimated at about $300,000. U.S. Bureau Studying Way to Mine Moon WASHINGTON — (JP) — Even the U.S. Bureau of Mines — still faithfully sticking to its digging — has joined the effort to land on the moon. "Mining useful materials on the moon — instead of rocketing them from earth — will make lunar exploration parties more nearly self-sufficient than would otherwise be possible," the bureau said. Explorers might find it possible to build shelters with sulfur or stone from moon mines, it said. There could be subsurface waterpools on the moon to provide water, or the rocks might yield water. "Blasting would be unpredictable at best, and too large an explosion might send boulders into orbit," the bureau said. On earth, the usual method of drilling is with compressed air equipment. That would be impossible on the moon, where it is believed there is no atmosphere. At the bureau's research center in Minneapolis, a team of scientists and engineers is working on extraterrestrial mining techniques. They include inquiry into the basic nature of rock and how it behaves under certain conditions. Recover Second Body in Delavan Drownings DELAVAN, Wis. — (JP) — The body of Mervin Ackman, 42, of Marengo, 111., one of two victims of a boat collision on Delavan Lake Thursday night, was recovered Saturday by the Walworth County sheriff's department. The body of Gary Vander- Valk, 9, also of Marengo and in the same boat with Ackman, was recovered Friday. Rain, Hail and Wind Causes Havoc in D.C. (Related Story, Page 8A) WASHINGTON — (JP) — Torrential rain and golfball- size hail, whipped by fierce winds, battered Washington briefly in a crazy-quilt pattern Saturday. Lasting no more than 10 or 15 minutes, the sudden storm uprooted trees and dumped some on motorists; unroofed some homes and knocked down power lines. There were no reported deaths, but there were several injuries. At several of the numerous freeway "mixing bowl" points around Washington, tourists and natives alike scurried to the side of the road to park during the rain and hail, which peppered cars and left many dented. Lightning apparently smashed several big trees in the downtown area as the storm swept west to east, but skipped many suburban areas. In McLean, Va., trees were knocked down by heavy rain and winds. In Fairfax City, Va., a few miles away, the storm passed completely over. Three persons were hurt when a tree toppled over on a city transit bus waiting for a light on Massachusetts Ave. in Washington. Half-a-dozen cars were reported crushed by falling trees, some occupied. Ecuador Junta Arrests Opponents of Army Rule Officer MightVe Shot Innocent Man Among Rape Suspects of Dauqhter QUITO, Ecuador — (/P) — Forces of the military junta arrested five civilian oppositionists and hunted others Saturday on charges that they defied military orders by laying down plans for public demonstrations next week to demand civilian rule. Seized in their homes in Quito and at Guayaquil were leaders of a coalition of 13 political parties known as the National Patriotic Junta. Seize Party Leaders The military junta has been in power since military leaders ousted Carlos Julio Arosemena as president July 11, 1963. Guayaquil newspapers said an Air Force plane was ready in Guayaquil to fly the oppositionists into exile, possibly in Paraguay. Arrested in Quito were Aurelio Davila, a member of the Conservative Party, and Socialist Gonzalo Oleas. Da- Charge of 'Dear for Position in Cabinet 'a Lie' - Wilkins DENVER —(JP)— Roy Wilkins, executive director of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, today denied that any deal had been made to obtain a federal cabinet post for an NAACP board member. The charge had been made from the floor of the NAACP's 56th annual convention which closed here Saturday. The charge of a "deal" was made by Max Dean, a white attorney from Flint, Mich. He shouted into a microphone from the convention room floor, "Who wants to get into the cabinet? What deal was cut?" The charge arose from Wilkins' recommendation to the board of directors of the NAACP that it refrain from making a strong protest to the U.S. Senate opposing the confirmation of former Mississippi Gov. Janes P. Coleman as judge of the Court of Appeals of the Fifth Circuit. Dean's charge was by far the strongest made at the convention and the only one made publicly. However, reporters have heard sentiments of dissatisfaction from delegates in private. The core of these complaints was that the NAACP leadership did not want to dis- WHAT IS YOUR SIZE GUARANTEED 20 YEARS Continuous Aluminum Siding Your house ii measured for sixe . . . and fitted right on the spot with paint saving beauty and protection to lost for years.

Dean made the accusation after an amendment to the convention's resolution was introduced from the floor asking that the board of directors appeal to the Senate on the Coleman appointment. The original resolution recommended only that the president be asked to reconsider the appointment and to consider persons from areas other than Mississippi. The amendment was in fact adopted and Wilkins told the delegates. "What you decree here I will attempt to carry out." Vila is a coalition director and Oleas a secretary. As they were being led off to jail, Oleas shouted: "We will con tinue the fight for civilian government!" Elude Searchers In Guayaquil, armed government agents searched for Arosemena and his brother, Gustavo, and Jaime Nebot, chief of the Velasquista Federation, an organization of followers of ex-president Jose Maria Velasco Ibarra, They could not be found. Seized in Guayaquil were Dr, Rafael Arizaga Vega, director of the Arosema movement; Asaad Bucaram, former mayor of Guayaquil and chief of the Concentration of Popular Forces, and Bolivar Sandoval, secretary-general of the Federation of Workers of Guayas Province, City Manager Quits in Two Rivers, Wis. TWO RIVERS, Wis. — (JP) • Robert L. Broucek, 33, submitted his resignation Saturday as city manager of Two Rivers. Broucek will move to Madison, where he will enter private business. He became city manager in 1959, when he came from Brookfield, 111. The City Council will meet Monday to consider the resignation and possibly to discuss appointment of a new manager. WEDDING BELLS AT 83 WARMBATHS, South Africa —iJP)— Jaap Botha, 83, a Boer War veteran who was among the armed party which captured Sir Winston Church ill, was married Saturday at Warmbaths. His bride was 73- year-old widow Mattie Derck- son. Sunday Specials LOS ANGELES — W) — Police booked seven new suspects in the multiple rape of a policeman 's daughter Saturday and said a man shot by the enraged father could be the wrong man. "We do not know at this time whether the 21-year-old man shot by Lt. Thomas O'Neal was involved in the rape," said detective Charles Hugihes, in charge of the investigation. But Hughes confirmed that Carl E. Norman was under questioning in the the case when seven bullets from O'Neal's service pistol whizzed down the corridor where Norman and another prisoner were being led handcuffed. Three of them critically wounded Norman. Poor Mental State Hughes added that Shirley Diane O'Neal, 19, the victim, was in such a mental state that she was unable to identify the alleged rapists. "The attack left her with the mentality of a five-year-old child," said. Hughes.
