KETCIIUM, Idaho (AP) - Offi-' KL<nm;th Fu l lc u cials ruled today thai (il-vcar-old a »»' vcr «"'y »' '' famed Methodists Dedicate New Building pcr- author Ernest Hemingway died of a ' self-inflicted gunshot wound in the head" and they said there will be no inquest. A group of law officials went to the literary giant's country hoi'.* today lo talk wilh his wife Mary. They issued their statement a few minutes later. . Their ruling left officially open a determination of whether Hemingway's death was accidental, or otherwise. The writer's wife, who heard a shot, found him dead about 7:30 a.m. Sunday. He was lying in his pajamas near 'the living room of tlip'«*;ccliidcd home. Tfferc was a double-barrel shotgun by his side. She called a doctor although death apparently was instantaneous. "Mr. Hemingway accidentally killed himself while cleaning a gun this morning al 7:30 a.m.," she said in a brief statement read to reporters by a family friend. Shc^ was taken to a hospital and gi'.$) a sedative. Coroner Ray McGoldrick said it was "a self-inflicted wound" thai could have been accidental or otherwise. He said no inquest is planned unless something new develops. Sheriff Frank Hcwill said authorities planned lo talk with Mrs. Hemingway if a doctor mils. Mvmlngway's violent death shocked the literary world. There were expressions of profound regret from President Kennedy lo his obscure neighbors in Idaho. To Hemingway, Ibis was home — a quiet retreat far from the turbulent world of "Farewell to Arms", "Across the River and Into the Trees", "For Whom the Bell Tolls". It was here lhat he came lo hiQ, relax and work. To local citizens he was as well known a.s the artful bearded hunter as the Nobel and Pulitzer prize winner. the author of the brilliant "Old Man and the Sea". 11 was here that he worked on a new major novel, and a book of reminiscences of his youth. A close friend said Hemingway was serious when he boasted he liacl ' a a ,big novel, all about Ihe land, tin?* sea and the air" slashed away in a Cuban bank as "insurance." It will be here lhat they lay Ernest Hemingway to rest in private funeral services tentatively set for Friday. But some of the people he knew around here lliought "papa" ~ as friends called him — seemed a bit distressed and traced it to tlu'jrcccnt cancer death of actor Gary Cooper, his close friend and local hunting companion.

"What makes a Church Great?" was Ihe subject of the sermon, and he answered the question in four parts, Youth, Manpower. Message and Spirit. Introduced by the Hope District Supt. Dr. R. B. Moore, Ihe speaker brought an inspiring message to 'his listeners. Others taking part in the service were the Rev. Rufus Sorrells, pastor of the church, and his assistant, Gladvvin Council. At the dedication service following the morning worship, the congregation asscsmblcd on Ihe lawn of the new Sunday School building, recognized outstanding workers who 'have led in the com- piction of the building and heard a short address by Bishop Pope. The Act of Presentation was made by James H. Jones, Chairman of the Commission on Educa-' 1 lion. Some 175 students svill be trained in the new educational building which contains approximately 14,000 square feel of floor space. 11 was completed and occupied on Christmas Day, KlfiO.

Asks Kennedy to Invoke TH Law in Strike HYANN1S POUT. Mass. (AP>— The Cape Cod While House indicated today Ilia! Secretary of Labor Arthur J. Goldberg has recommended thai President Kennedy invoke a Tart-Hartley Law injunction to hall Ihe marilime strike. Newsmen were .(old (hat Goldberg and Kennedy began conferring on (he .shipping strike at !):!>() a.m. on the patio of (he President's summer home here. A White House announcement added merely: "II appears dial Secretary Goldberg would recommend Ihe use of Ihe Tafl-llarlley Law." Goldberg brought with him n report from (he fact-finding hoard appointed by Kennedy lo determine whether Ihe strike, now in its Itltli day, imperils the national health and safety. Goldberg flew lo the Cape Sunday night, after a conference at. Newark. N.J., with chairman David L. Cole and other members of Ihe fact-finding board Kennedy appointed a week ago. Kennedy set up the board as Ihe firsl slep in machinery provided by the Tnfl-llartley Act to stop the strike for an 1)0 day cooling off period. The ncxl step would be lo In- slrucl his brother, Ally, Gen. Robert I 1 '. Kennedy, to seek a court, injunction requiring, the' mari- lime workers lo man the country's merchant, fleet once again. Assl. Ally Gen. William Orrick Jr. was understood (o be standing by in New York Cily lo file the government'.':, petition for an injunction, if need be. Nearly half of the American merchant marine fleel. of about 1,000 passenger ships, freighters and tankers are free lo sail despite the continuing strike. Agreements were signed Sunday with South Atlantic port and Gulf Coast' companies wilh 250 .ships. They completed signing with four of the five striking unions, and thus obtained all the. types of officers and crewmen required to .sail. NFAV YORK (AP)-The federal government today went into court .seeking a Tafl-llarlley law injunction to end the ill-day maritime .strike. President, Kennedy, opposed in principal to use of the Tafl-Hart- ley law, nevertheless called upon its provisions in Ibe face of a split between seamen's union g r o u p s thai, has hopelessly snarled marilime negotiations. On direct orders from Kennedy, who is vacalioning at llyannis Port, Mass., U.S. Ally. Robert M. Morgenlhau filed a complaint under the Tall-Hartley law in federal district court. If granted, the injunction would hall the strike of some flO.OOO seamen for a period of !!0 days. A quick hearing in the complaint was scheduled. Earlier, Labor Secretary Arthur J. Goldberg recommencd lo President Kennedy al Hyannis Port that the Tafl-llarlley law injunction be sought. The two conferred during the morning at (he President's summer Goldberg brought llyannis. home Ihere. 5lh graf 140 Field Archery Meet in July HOT SPRINGS, Ark.

Traffic accounted for some (i() per cent, of accident deaths as hundreds of Americans were, killed in u mounting Fourth of July holiday loll. With millions of cars on the highways, safety experts said traffic casualties were running ahead of estimates today in the third day ol the, four-day weekend. Water accidents—drownings and boaling mishaps — look a heavy loll. The traffic death loll since the .start of the count at (i p.m. Friday was approximately 25 per cent higher than estimates made by the National Safely Council. The council had estimated that 450 persons might be killed in highway accidents during Ihe LOU- hour period which ends at midnight Tuesday. K Ihe death rale during the firsl, half of the period continues, a council official said, Ihe final toll could pass 5,10, topping the record toll of 4!)1 during Ihe four- day Fourth of July holiday in 1050. "This holiday weekend is a period of extra danger," said George C. Stewart, council executive vice president. "Extra care must be exerted lo meet. Ihis ex- Ira danger. We ask all drivers lo take it easy, to obey Ihe laws and to use common sense and good judgment in their driving." With fairly pleasant weather in most of Ihe country Sunday, millions of motorists jammed highways en route to outings and vacation spots. In one of the worst crashes, four members of a Knox Cily, Mo., family were killed when a station wagon in which they and six oilier persons were riding crashed into a bridge railing near Macon, Mo.
