Feeling Low -AP W 'lrepliolo Weecf Scorecard to Tell the Felons TRENT, Italy—(/P)—The defiuty warden of the City Jail received a letter Saturday ordering him to transfer a convict named Vittorio Napolitano to Milan for trial. The only Vittorio Napolitano in the Trent City Jail is the deputy warden. He grabbed the phone and called the Milan Court which sent the letter. It turned out he was wanted to testify as a witness at a trial in Milan and some clerk just assumed anyone in jail must be a convict. Priest's Complaint Cancels Manitowoc Twist' Contest MANITOWOC— im — A\ "twist" contest at a theater here was called off after the management received a protest from the pastor of St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church. The cancellation of the dance contest, announced by theater manager Lou Ingram, touched off a noisy demonstration by the audience of approximately 700. Ingram said admissions would be refunded or tickets validated for, future performances. About' 200 persons got their money back, the others remained for the second movie. The protest came from the Rev. John Landowski, who said he telephoned after receiving "many requests" from members of the parish. He added he had read manyj periodicals condemning the "twist" as immoral. "If I find any kids in my parish doing the 'twist,' out, they go," Father Landowskii said. Al Is Joe; Robbers Captured HOUSTON —(/P)— The assistant manager kept calling his boss Joe. That was somewhat unusual since the boss's name is Al. Al Wright thought it strange enough to call the police. Police dashed to the Henke - Pillot supermarket and collared one man although another got away. Officers said the two robbers were inside the store when employes arrived Saturday mornvng. Workers were herded into the stockroom as they arrived. Wright placed a routine call from his home to the store. The gunmen permitted assistant manager Ross Lewis to answer. He successfully alerted Wright by using a wrong name. The gunmen fled out a back door when police arrived. A police dog helped capture one man in an apartment building. No charges were filed immediately.

Witch on Broomstick Reigns as Queen - ROME — {JP) —An old witch riding an old fashioned broomstick reigned as queen it) Italy Saturday. Even shapely movie stars had to take a b^ck seat for her. !For this was the Feast of Epiphany and Italians — young and old, and especially children and policemen — looked to the witch Befana to bring them gifts. Befana is a legendary figure who delivers presents on the Epiphany holiday commemorating the bringing of gifts to the infant Jesus by the Three Wise Men. Italian small fry write her letters, asking for presents, like American youngsters write Santa Claus. »She is supposed to bring toys and candy to good boys apd girls, hunks of coal to bad ones. But she is really tender-hearted, legend says, and the coal usually is licor- iee-flavored candy. Over the past few years, police have done as well onj BSefana—the Italian name for both the witch and the holiday—as the children. ; Italian merchants send parades of decorated cars and ti'ucks around Italian cities and towns, delivering pres-' eints to traffic policemen.' TJie gifts pile high at busy intersections. Traffic is jammed. But no one seems to mind. Children line the streets to see the parades. Others Acts '-The day also brings other acts of goodwill. A nun in Rovigo in northern Italy, after hearing about the Turin i\uto Show, wrote the show's director that farm children hkd a tough time getting to: her school because they' lacked transportation. So automakers in Turin built an l_8-seat custom school bus, complete with safety belts on every seat, and sent it to the nun. -A mother wrote the head of Rome's airport that her daughter had written Befana, asking the witch to drop, flowers over the English Channel in memory of a grandfather who drowned in the channel in a shipwreck [Albania, a center of con-; troversy in the Communist bloc, has a population of 1,5.81,000 living in an area a, little larger than Maryland, i in 1936. The crew of an Ital- 'ian airliner, on a regular I Rome to London flight, agreed jto make the girl's wish come true. Oshkosh Bus Line Changes Owners MADISON — {JPIJ— Sale of Oshkosh City Lines, Inc., jbus company to City Transit I Lines, Inc., for $87,250 was 'approved by the Wisconsin Public Service Commission. The agreement calls for the new owner to pay City Lines $22,250 in cash and the re- Imaining $65,000 under pro- I'vision of long term notes. Book value of the bus company's 21 vehicles, garage equipment and supplies was set at $33,959. The commission ordered that fares remain at present levels. The commission scheduled a hearing in Madison Jan. 22 on an application of NR Gas Inc., of New Richmond for authority to provide natural gas service to New Richmond, Erie, Richmond, Stanton and Star Prairie, all in St. Croix County.
