Rubirosa scoffed at this and said Miss Gabor was looking for publicity. A spokesman said it would be a single ring ceremony under Dominican custom but. that Rubirosa could receive a ring also after the nuptials. There was no official word on where the couple would honeymoon, but it was learned. Rubirosa had reserved a six-room honeymoon suite at the Hotel Jaragua, in Ciudad Trujillo, Dominican capital, as a "precautionary" measure. The New York Post quoted Ru- birosa today as saying he was not interested in Miss Button's millions. Post columnist Earl Wilson, who encountered Rubirosa last night in the Midston House bar, wrote that the playboy told him: 'Riches to me don't count. I don't need anybody's money. I have plenty of my own. We will be married like civilized people under the law of separate property. What property she has is hers and what property I have is mine." Rubirosa said Miss Hutton has "brought something new and different into my life." "I will not be like her other husbands," he said. "I will make her happy at last." Asked if he had heard from former wife Doris Duke about his plans to wed Miss Hutton, Rubi- rosa replied: "No, not yet. But she's going to be happy—and going to laugh. Barbara and Doris are very good friends." Obituaries Bell Planning Expansion of Mrs. Annie Carter £)j o / Systems Succumbs Here Services for Mrs. Annie Belle Blevlns Carter, 81, wife of the late A.

This approach to alcoholism is based upon our own drinking experience, what we have learned from medicine and prychiatry, and upon spiritual principles common to all creeds. By combining these resources, the recovery rate among alcoholics who want to stop has been very greatly increased. We think of alcoholism as an illness; an obsession of the mind coupled to an "allergy" of the body. It is a shattering sickness—physical, emotional and spiritual. How to expell the obsession that compels us to drink against our will is the problem of every alcoholic. We feel that each man's religious views, if any, are his own affair. While every shade of opinion is found among us, we take no position, as a group, upon controversial questions. No particular point of view is demanded of anyone. Our sole aim is to show sick alcoholics who want to get wel( how they may do so. We are really groups and not organizations. We have no constitutions, no bylaws, no officers, no dues or assessments. We are not chartered for profit or otherwise. While every shade of opinion is expressed among us we take no position, as a group, upon controversial questions, no member is obliged to conform to anything •whatever except to admit that he has an alcoholic problem and wishes to be rid of it. We have found that a genuine tolerance of others, coupled with a friendly desire to be of service to others is most essential to our own recovery. This treatment is primarily a SUGGESTED way of life that many have profited by and they devote much of their sparetime to passing their idea of recovery on to others.

ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS Box 873 — Blyrheville, Arkansas Anyont Interested Invited to Our Meetings Op«n Meeting! 8 p.m. Every Friday Night Closed Meeting! 8 p.m. Every Tuesday Night LITTLE ROCK W—The Southwestern Bell Telephone Co., today announced a 28 million dollar con. structlon program to provide 80 per cent of its Arkansas customers with dial telephone systems. General Manager Warren E. Bray said it will be three years before the project is completed. Announcements were made yesterday at Pine Bluff and Hot Springs that those cities will get dial systems within two years. The Pine Bluff changeover from manual operation will cost three million dollars. The changeover at Hot Springs will cost $1,600,000. Bray said the company plans to convert virtually ail Arkansas telephone offices to dial within the next five or six years. He said about 60 per cent of the company's phones now are dial. Among the other projects on the constructipn program, Bray said, are several new buildings; an underground long distance cable from Little Rock to Searcy; a long distance aerial cable now under construction between Little Rock, Benton, Hot Springs and Malvern. He said this will be extended to Arkadelphia, Gurdon, Hope and Texarkana and will connect with Texas. Bray said the construction program is designed to keep pace with the growing communications needs of Arkansas. He said that in 1940 Arkansas had 76,000 telephones. Today, the figure has grown to 221,000. DEFENSE TV Solves Mystery SUSSEX, N. J.(/P) — A 20 year old mystrey has been solved for Harry Hayne. As a boy attending a movie theater, he was watching a thriller when the film broke just as the culprit was about to be revealed. The manager announced the film was so mutilated the end of the picture could not be shown. The other night Hayne switched on his TV set. They were showing the same picture. Hayne finally learned how the story ended. (Continued from Pagi l) the program was not prompted by recent statements by some economists and Congress members that I the country is in a recession. El- 'senhower's statement said he was In "complete agreement" with the anti-unemployment moves outlined in November by Flemming. Sen. Maybank, In a statement released here, declared that Eisenhower had turned his back "on campaign promises of state rights, more freedom for private business and greater economies in the government," and he continued: "It's impossible for me to understand how the President, in the face of the record made In the Congress during the last session , and in the face of assurances given by the administration to the majority leader, Sen. Knowland (Calif), coi.;d take such action as he took." He referred to this chronology of events last July: The Senate adopted 62-25 an amendment to the defense appropriation bill forbidding the Defense Department from letting any contracts to other than a low. bidder, even if a slightly higher bid came from an area with substantial unemployment, for "correcting or preventing :conomic dislocations." The amendment was drastically revised in a Senate-House conference, to bar preferential treatment in cases where there was a "price differential." When the bill returned to the Senate for final passage, Maybank again offered his amendment. But tie did not press it after Knowland assured him that "I will personally take up the matter with the President of the United States, because . . the vote of the Senate onjthe question was so overwhelming that Ihe administration should not fly in the face of the vote by the Senate." Cites Low Bid Assurance He referred to the original Senate approval of Maybank's amendment. Knowland later said he had received from the President assurance that no contracts would be let except on a low-bid basis. The Californian could not be SHOULDERS (Continued from Pate 1> Hager's cab during a free-spending spree. Both Hall and Mrs. Heady claimed they knew nothing about the missnlg ransom money and Kali said he had more than (590,000 In his hotel room when arrested. Shoulders, in testifying before the grand jury, said he used precaution in bringing the suitcases into the police station because he knew he was on an important case. "I knew good and well the fact that Dolan and I come in and used the precaution was going to cause them gassy policemen to become suspicious that we had something big and I didn't want that because I didn't have the woman (Mrs. Heady)," the officer testified. ' Mrs. Heady was arrested after Hall had told officers where to find her. Shoulders said Dolan took In one suitcase and placed it in his office in the station. He told the jurors he brought in the other suitcase. "I got it in the back of my office and I done It purposely so no- borty saw me with this suitcase and they didn't," he said. The grand jury disclosed the testimony for the first time yesterday. Federal Judge Richard M. Duncan set Shoulders' bond at $10,000.

Senate his solemn word that he .had talked with President Eisenhower and the very thing we dreaded then would never be done." Sparkman added: "Today they have broken faith and done it." Similarly, Sen. Hill said the presidential policy "violates the letter and the spirit of an ironclad agreement between the Republican leadership and Southern senators."
