2 MMM DAIIV Nf W$ PAMPA TEXAS 6«ih YEAR Monday. June 1$ 1972 34 FATALITIES REPORTED Traffic Accidents Lead Weekend Violent Deaths By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A flaming car-truck crash between Wharton and El Campo which snuffed out five lives Sunday night capped an already deadly weekend on Texas streets and highways. That collision helped swell the violent death toll in the state to 34 fatalities, including 18 in traffic accidents, seven homicides, five killed in a plane crash and two drownings—a much larger figure than in recent weeks. The toll was recorded between 6 p.m. Friday and midnight Sunday. Sheriff's officers reported the two adults and three children killed in the crash near Wharton were burned beyond recognition and had not been identified hours later. All were riding in the tar and authorities said it was believed they were from Katy.Tex. An unreleated shooting added a bizarre touch as sheriff's deputies directed traffic around the scene of the fiery highway crash. Officers heard a gunshot in a moving vehicle and followed the auto onto railroad tracks, where they aw a woman alight as there was more gunfire. Deputies found Nina Ainsworth of Houston dead beside the car and her husband Neal gravely wounded inside. Two small girls were among the five persons who died early Sunday as a Cessna 182 aircraft rented from Air Central, Inc., of Harlingen dived into a muddy pasture near the village of Nopal, close to Gonzales in South Texas. Victims of the air crash, all from Harlingen, were listed as Gene Davis, 27, the pilot; Joe Morales, also 27; Morales' wife Lydia, 25. and their daughters Belinda, 4. and Shelly Ann, 2. Willard H. Sivright, 20, of Dallas, was killed shortly before midnight Sunday when a sports car flipped over on Northwest Highway in Dallas and slid 170 feet on its top before hitting a light standard. Police held the driver without immediate charge. Stock Market Quotations . .1«.«) Ckl«f* Biekaai* lift celtta hurt* art faniaM kv tit A«ariU* rifle** •! Merrill. Ljrxk. Pierce. Fee eer nt Sultk. lac.

Season's 1st Hurricane Points Toward Florida APALACHICOLA, Fla. (AP) — Thousands evacuated low- lying areas and islands along Florida's Gulf Coast today, but others in the path of Hurricane Agnes refused to flee before the storm which has claimed eight lives. Agnes was moving northward over the Gulf of Mexico at about 12 miles per hour. At midnight Sunday the eye of the storm was located about 250 miles south of Panama City in the Florida Panhandle. Bearing sustained winds of 80 m.p.h. and gusts in excess of 100. Agnes is expected to make landfall near Apalachicola in the Panhandle early this afternoon, the National Hurricane Center said. Earlier in the weekend, she claimed seven lives as she raked the western tip of Cuba, and a woman died in La Belle, Fla., on Sunday when a tornado spawned by the storm demolished several mobile homes. More than 1,500 persons were evacuated during the night on the Gulf Coast hundreds of miles south of here, from the Venice area and keys off Sara- sola, civil defense officials reported. But some residents the Florida Panhandle were refusing to leave their homes and places of business. The manager of Faiver's restaurant in Panacea, John Trotman, said he would "just wait and see what happens" after putting plywood over his windows. About 20 residents of Dog Island, a tiny spit of land two miles off the fishing village of Carrabelle. refused to leave their stilt-legged homes Sunday night and watched the last ferry to the mainland wallow away through heavy seas. One person was killed and about three dozen persons were reported injured by twisters that hit the state, damaging several buildings and about 80 mobile homes.

(API Five persons, including two tiny girls, died Sunday morning when a four-place plane crashed into muddy ranchland near this South Texas town. Cause of the crash had not been ascertained late Sunday night as workers still were taking bodies from the aircraft which apparently hit the ground in a nose-first power dive. Killed were Eugene W. Davis Jr., 27; the pilot; Joe Morales, 27, employe of a Harlingen, Tex., mobile home firm; Morales' wife, Lydia, 25, and their daughters, Belinda Jo, 4, and Shelly Ann, 2. The aircraft, a Cessna 182, did not burn. The owners. Air Central, Inc., of Harlingen, said David was an experienced, veteran flier with 2,000 flight hours. A funeral home said Davis was from Harlingen but his pilot's license listed a Houston address. The plane hit the ground with such impact that all but the tail section was buried in six to eight feet of mud. Only the The Texas Department of Public Safety said the plane was lost from a radar screen about 2:50 a.m., CDT. About 10 minutes later, Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Lyssy called Gonzales County authorities about the crash. They had heard the plane flying over their ranch home and then noise of the crash. The wreckage was spotted about five hours later by a search plane from the Civil Air Patrol. Man Jailed After Affray A 42-year old Pampa man was in jail Sunday night for intoxication following investigation of a disturbance at an East Campbell St. residence. Answering a complaint, the Investigating officer found the man and the woman who lives at the address in a drunken state and bearing the marks of a fight. She told the officer the man had beaten her and she wanted him out of her house. According to the official report, he was arrested and the woman was to file charges this morning.
