Sam asks $107,700 damages for injuries to his daughter and himself. Theresa Tyler asks $60,000 damages for personal injuries. The Simien suit seeks $15,600 damages for injuries to Eula Mae Julien. Parking Lot Paying Set At Memorial A change in parking procedures at Lake Charles Memorial hospital has been announcd in preparation for a parking lot paving program beginning at the hospital Monday. Beginning Monday, visitors to the hospital have been asked to park on the street in front of the hospital or on Third avenue until the project is completed. Hospital employes are asked to park on the grass, facing north, parallel with the heliport. During the construction period, the hospital asks that visitors and employes do not use the area assigned for doctor parking. Plans call for paving and installation of fluorescent lighting in the visitors parking lot. When completed, the area will accommodate 57 automobiles. The employe parking area near Second avenue will also be paved and lighted. A new storage area for liquid oxygen will be paved at the north 1'ngton, Texas. end of the X-Ray building. Hos pital authorities said the new ox- to the retreat by his daughter Tommy Lynn, and his son, Dana! ygen system will keep the stor age pressure of oxygen to 80 pounds pressure as compared to oxygen cylinders. Announcement was also made gram, that permission and specifications have been requested of the city to permit cutting through the neutral ground on Second avenue to provide a direct entrance to the doctor parking area.

Some high administration officials now feel the guides were too ness and labor should charge for their products and services, the government should be in a position to enforce those rules. Otherwise it is too confusing. Rules honored only by breach are demoralizing. Certainly inflation has remained in check. Wage and price increases by and large have been moderate. But this probably was due more to a sluggish economy than to the self-restraint doctrine preached through Kennedy's guides. This is not to say that the administration's advocation of wage- price moderation in the national interest was without result. It undoubtedly had some steadying influence. On the other hand, there is also evidence the guidepost theories have somewhat distorted the na- Spending Up In Area Over Last Year The level of spending in the Lake Charles area declined slightly during July from the previous month but was almost $6 million higher than in July of 1961. The Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta said Thursday that bank debits at the four Lake Charles banks and their branches totaled $87,178,000 in July, compared to $88,093,000 in June and $81,327,000 in July of 1961. Bank debits are regarded as a reliable gauge of spending since about 90 per cent of all business transactions are handled by check, which are reflected in bank debits. The decline in July amounted in Jonesboro. to one per cent compared with a gain of one per cent for the southern half of the state that is in the Sixth Federal Reserve district. Thus far in 1962 the gain in spending for Lake Charles is 10 shown by the state. Three cities are ahead of Lake Charles, Alex- and Lafayette 11 per cent. The gain at New eight per cent.

Dead is Frederick Aubrey Stringer, 21, formerly of Jonesboro, La. Two men were arrested about two hours later. Being questioned in connection with the slaying were James N. Matthews, 25, and Sidney R. Clayton, 34. Stringer's wife, Louise, 18, said they were driving home from a party shortly after midnight when a compact-sized car pulled alongside and two men in the car challenged her husband to a drag race on Airline Drive. Stringer agreed, she said, and beat the other car in the race. Following behind Stringer were three other cars driven by friends who were with them at the party. Suddenly, Mrs. Stringer said, they noticed the car her husband had beaten was swerving in and out of traffic behind them. The car sped past and swerved in front of Stringer's car, forcing him to the curb. Mrs. Stringer said her husband and the two men got out of their cars and a scuffle ensued. Meanwhile, Stringer's friends in the other cars stopped and several of them, including Robert Wagner Taylor, 25, of Victoria, joined in the melee. Both Stringer and Taylor were stabbed in the stomach by one of the men. A passing motorist took the wounded pair to Heights Hospital, where Stringer was dead on arrival at 1:05 a.m. Taylor was transferred to Jefferson Davis Hospital, where he was said to be in "fair" condition. Stringer attended high school in Jpnesboro, but did not get his diploma until he entered the Navy. He was discharged from the Navy about two years ago and came to Houston where his mother resides and operates a beauty shop.

"The committee urges each public school system in the state to prepare their budgets in accordance with the funds appropriated and sent same to the state board of education and eventually to the budget committee for approval and distribution of the funds to each system as appropriated by the legislature.

Rainbow Man Is Puzzling To Doctors HUDDERSFIELD, England (AP)—When John O'Toole'j face turned blue and his hands yellow, i doctors had an explanation.

O'Toole, 32, is a laborer at tha Imperial Chemical Industries plant Walking home from work the other evening, he felt fine and it wasn't until he noticed everyone gaping at him that he became uneasy. Looking into a mirror on arriv« ing home, he was shocked at becoming a human rainbow. H« rushed to a hospital for a series of injections that restored his normal color. O'Toole had been working with yellow chemical. Doctors said this accounted for his hands turning yellow, and it created a mild ay. anosis making his face blue.

HOW TO CONTROL RICE STINK BUG WITH MALATHION The practical program described below is based on 4 years' research plus proven grower results in 1960 and 1961. Malathim does the job, but does not cause residue problems at harvest. Here's the program that stops rice stink bug, helps you eliminate "pecky rice," lets you harvest top-grade rice... without the problem of insecticide residues : 1. Make application of mala- thion when rice is in the early milk and dough stages. One application usually does the job, but two are sometimes necessary. Malathion has been accepted for stink bug control by the USDA. 2. Apply malathion by air, making sure there are no "misses.". Swaths should be no wider than the plane's wings. 3. Because weeds and grasses around fields play an important part in the life cycle of the stink bug, they should be destroyed, Control pays big dividends Stink bug can damage as much as 26-50% of the crop. Heavy infestations can cause 3 or 4 grade reductions, with discounts up to per hundredweight. With rice at $5-7 per hundredweight, plus a 20{! premium for #1, losses can be very severe. Damage shows up as complete removal of the grain (leaving empty seed coats), kernel shrinkage due to partial removal of the grain, and molds which enter at punctures and cause "pecky rice." Why malathion for stink bug control ? First, because malathion is powerful and gets the control job done! Next, because mala- thion is low in toxicity to man and animals. Malathion does not leave insecticide residues in harvested rice when applied according to directions. Because of its low toxicity and rapidly disappearing residues, it can be used up to 7 days from harvest without causing problems. Finally, mala- thion is economical to use. The investment you make in protecting your rice against stink bug with malathion. will be returned many, many times over. How to get malathion Malathioa is not a brand name. It's the active ingredient ia sprays manufactured and sold by many different companies under their own brand names. Ask your insecticide supplier about the brands he carries.
