RAONI SUNDAY lULLETIN 8A Live Torpedo Scare Sunday, July 18, 196S Pleasure Cruise for 8 Wasn't One for Long BALBOA, Calif. — UP) — Naval maneuvers added spice to a pleasure cruise for eight persons who suddenly were informed: "Kill your engines and lie dead — there's a live torpedo in the area." "We were petrified," one member of the party said, "We followed instructions, then all hung over the rails trying to find the torpedo." The group aboard the Helgard, was cruising from Balboa to Santa Catalina Island, 20 miles away when a Navy helicopter swooped low and gave the alarming advisory. "We thought we were all going to be blown up," said Miss Penny Pond. "A member of our party, Charles Reed was a commander of a Navy PT boat during the war and he told us to relax. "He told us that once it hit, it would be over quickly." Forty minutes later the helicopter reappeared, saying: "All clear ... the torpedo has been found." A spokesman for the U.S. Coast Guard said later the torpedo was a "dummy" — harmless except that it might have "put a nasty hole in the boat." He said the private cruiser evidently entered a practice area by mistake. Assign 15 Reserve Ships to S.

Negro Children End State Visit; Sponsors Term Project a Success PLATTEVILLE — (/P) —A racial relations experiment ends today when 37 Negro children leave by bus for their homes in Chicago's South Side. The youngsters, ranging in age from 5 to 13, have spent a week living with 26 white families in this southwestern Wisconsin community, about half of them on farms. Sponsors have termed the project a success and are thinking of making it an annual event. Aided with Chores Many resident children had never seen Negroes in the flesh before the Chicago children arrived last Saturday. For many of the visitors it was the first time they had been out of Chicago. "Wisconsin looks pretty much the way we thought it would," said Paul Williams, 11, "but this is our first time on a farm and we like it." He and Raymond White, 12, stayed with Mr. and Mrs. Dale Sander and their nine children. Raymond said he liked to ride on the tractor and Paul helped with the chores. The Guerdon Hoosier family offered riding horses and the pair spent an afternoon horseback riding and play- Alaska, in addition to Mount McKinley (20,320 feet high), has 6 other peaks taller than the highest of Europe's Alps. ing with puppies at the Hoosier home. "The boys seem to have adjusted to rural life," said Mrs. Sander. "They have become just like any of the regular visitors we have at the farm." Picnics and Socials During the week the visiting ^roup also went on picnics, swimming parties and ice cream socials. The Rev. Richard Chartier, pastor of the First Congregational Church, helped plan the project, along with other clergymen and members of their congregations. About 50 families contributed to the $400 fund required for bus transportation and other expenses. Quell Roof Fire at U.S. Arsenal DOVER, N. J. — m —Fire broke out on the roof of a large warehouse ^t Picatinny arsenal Saturday. A spokesman for the arsenal, the nation's largest ammunition and research development center, said the fire was out within an hour and there were no injuries.
