Opening of a second wing on the main state Office Building, ocated two blocks from the Capitol, set off the changes. Most of the new space will be occupied by the state Department of Public Welfare and the new Department of Administration. The Attorney General's office and Department of Public Instruction will receive additional Capitol space made available by the change. This will enable Public Instruction to terminate leases for office space rented from private sources. Capitol basement areas, as a result of the reshuffling, will no longer be used for offices. Officials directing the moving predict it will be completed in about a month. RACINE 8UNDAT BCLLWHN Aa|«ftl».10B» SM^l^VltcJI to get tugboats to hel|>>movc the vessel off the sandbar.

TILBURY, England—(/^t—A 1 shapley blonde sailed for West Africa Saturday, and the best guess was that shipping heir-' ess Katharine Dovvsett was sent off on a spa trip leaving her lover in jail.

He will be freed only when the high court decides he has! purged his contempt—whether this is today or next year.

Take 1 Boy and 13 Sticks of Gum.. / % ^^ * * * Ihai's VVfiy Airliner Had to Turn Back LONDON — (/!») — A boy and 13 sticks of chewing gum forced a big airliner to turn back over the Atlantic Saturday and return 250 miles to New York.

John's father looked at the packet and told the steward. The steward told the captain and they radioed Idlewild Airport for advice.

The airliner reached London Saturday night — 3'/^ hours late. By that time all the family members — including John — were able to talk about his ordeal. Feared Drug Said his mother, Ingrid: "We thought there might be some kind of drug in the gum. But John didn't show any affects apart from being frightened. "His sister had one piece of the gum and she was all right But John had to lie greedy." John said: "Somebody gave me the gum at the airport. 1 thought it tasted good—until I read the packet.
