RAOINK SUNDAY BULLETIN iBly X8.1989 S m. 1, P «r« 14 Hunt Escapees in Wisconsin LANCASTER, Wls. — (yP) — Grant County Sheriff Naomi Seemeyer Saturday said that two men who escaped from the Virginia State Prison Tuesday were believed to be in north- em Illinois, southern Wisconsin or eastern Jowa. Mrs. Seemeyer said she had been alerted by the Illinois State Police to be on the lookout for a 1950 auto in which were believed to be James E, Hall, 37, of Rocky Mount. Va.. and Connie E. Plott, 27, of Severn, Md. The sheriff said that Illinois police reported that they had chased a car bearing Virginia license plates 942373 but List Congress' ^Musts': Labor, Housing, Roads, Civil Rights WASHINGTON ~(AP)—- Democratic lenders liavc put labor, housing, highway and civil fights legislation on the program for a stretch drive that could keep Congress running until Lahor Day. Also, if a satisfactory compromise can he worked out, Senate Democratic leader Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas and Speaker of the House Sam Rayburn (D-Tcxas) probably will agree to passage of a bill lifting the interest ceiling on long term government bonds. But the two party leaders are satisfied to let the Eisenhower administration stew in the juice of ilic President's vetoes of wheat and tobacco bills.

Some Action The Democratic leaders are agreed (hat .some action must bo taken on housing. Democrats on a Senate banking sub- commi((ce now are holding hearings in an effort to discredit Eisenhower's vc(o of a housing measure he called extravagant and inflationary. I if the response is judged requires two(hirds approval of[ those voting in both House and Senate. If support for the President's position seems solid, a bob - tailed housing bill may result. A compromise measure to continue the interstate highway program, perhaps at a slower than anticipated pace, appears to bo in the making. Eisenhower probably will get only part of the I V2 cents a gallon ga.soline tax increase he requested to help pay for the roadbuilding. Up In Air Action on civil rights legislation still is up in the air in both houses. Johnson has been plugging for the Senate Judiciary Committee to clear a bill but Southern Democrats apparently intend to stall there until they .see what the Mouse docs. Dirkscn got Senate permission for the judiciary group to meet all day Monday, when he .said there will be a motion to take up a telescoped measure approved by a subcommittee. The motion is debatable, meaning that Southern opponents may talk as long as they choose. But Dirkscn said he remains hopeful that a "modest" measure eventually will be .sent to the Senate floor. Sen. George Smalhers (D- Fla) said he doesn't see any need for passage of a civil rights measure. He said any new measure would only serve "to a/;ilate the situation rather than help it."

Japan Exports Top Goods Now, Say Countrymen of Miss Universe Bus, Auto Meet Head-on; 3 Die RfCHMOND, Va, — (JP) — A double-decked Greyhound bus and an auto plowed together in a light rain on heavily traveled U.S. I today, 25 miles north of Richmond. Three persons in the car were killed. They were not immediately identified. More than a score of passengers aboard the bus were hurt. The auto, mashed in the crash, bore Florida plates. The bus was en route from Detroit to Norfolk. It was full. Warren H. Morton, 48, bf. Detroit, who suffered nose injuries in the smashup, said the bus. had just gotten into a patch of light rain. "Those two sailors (not identified) should get a medal," he said. "No one could get out and everybody was excited. I don't know if there was an emergency door or not.

The news of Akiko Kojima's victory at Long Beach was flashed across (he nation by radio and television. Newspaper switchboards were jammed with incoming calls for more details. It was a great day for Japan. Although it was a Japanese lass who won, a lot of Americans in Japan were eager to take some credit. Said one who has lived in Tokyo since the end of the war: "If you me (he his(orians of the future may list her as one of America's greatest contributions to postwar Japan, Didn't we change t h e food habits? Well, what do you think got them sprouting so high and filling out (hat way— our lessons in diet, less rice, more milk and other body building foods." Other comments: A Japanese telephone operator: "It's unbelievable. I'd never given it a thought because it seemed so remote. But f am very happy a Japanese girl won." A secretary: "Miss Japan loked more like a western girl than an oriental. She was tall, unlike a Japanese. Maybe that'si why she won." . | It wasn't all praise and well being, however. Commented one disgruntled male: "Why the devil can't the outside world leave us alone to enjoy Japanese beauty?" "Export Model" He gulped down a glass of beer and said: "1 guess the Japanese male will have to add six inches to his height if he intends to hold his own against the new Japanese female." Said another, an obvious traditionalist: "She's just an export model. She's too big for me." In more serious vein, Misao Takano, one of the judges who selected Miss Kojima in the recent Miss Japan contest and one of the nation's leading oil painters, remarked: Old Traditions "Miss Kojima represents the new modern beauties of Japan. It is very encouraging indeed to know that the judges at Long Beach shared our judgment." Said Miss Chikage Awa- .shima, another judge at the Miss Japan contest; "This is the best news Japanese women have had since the end of jWorld War II. All Japanese women should join in sending congratulalions to Miss Kojima." Miss Awashima. one of Japan's top movie actresses, ironically represents the old traditions of Japanese beauty — petite, slender and oval-faced. Matsutaro Kawaguchi, chief of the panel of judges who selected Miss Kojima as Miss Japan last month said: "1 am surprised indeed . . . in my aesthetic eyes, she is not particularly a breath - taking beauty."
