Brogan Bulletin Staff Writer BURNS The national president of the Audubon Society, speaker today at the dedication of a memorial photographic blind at the Malheur National Wildlife Rel-uge near here, warned that Oregonians must be prepared to fight for preservation of wildlife lands. He was Carl W. Buchheister o( New York City. The photographic blind he dedicated at the refuge was a memorial to William L. Finlcy and Herman T.

Bohlman, pioneer conservationists who spearheaded a national move that finally resulted in the Malheur Lake area being set aside as a sanctuary in 1908. Subsequently the Malheur marshes were virtually destroyed through diversion and drainage. It was only after a long and bitter battle by conservationists that the area was restored in the 1930's. Blind Dedicated Here for the dedication of the stone-masonry blind, erected so it will be possible for photographers of wildlife to picture birds of the Malheur area in their native habitat, were National Audubon Society members from many parts of the Pacific Northwest. Norbert Leupold, Portland, pres- 18-degree mark noted at LaPine LaPine, southern Deschutes county town, not only won the dubious honor last night of being the coldest reporting spot in the nation, but it won that honor most decisively.

LaPine reported a low for the night of 18 degrees. The second coldest spot reporting was a Montana town, and there the temperature was 31 degrees. Bend's low last night was a mild 35 degrees. LaPine last night was 98 degrees cooler than Presidio, was on Friday. Presidio, hottest spot in the nation Friday, reported a high of 106.

Area forecasts call for mild weather in Central Oregon over the weekend. EUGENE (UPD The nude body of Alice Louise Lee. a seven-year-old Dexter girl who dis appeared from a bean field near Trent about 20 miles east of here Aug. 29, was recovered Friday afternoon near a slough at the bean field where she disappeared. Her body was partially buried.

The Lane County Sheriff's of-1 fice reported late Friday night the girl had some of her clothing wrapped around her neck. Probable cause of death will not be known until after a pathologist's report. According to authorities the girl was carried to the spot where she was found. Intensive Search She had been the object of two intensive ground searches by' the Lane County Sheriff's office. A second ground search for the girl was called off last Friday after a futile day-long search.

Deputy Sheriff Wayne Dillon, who had been assigned to the case after earlier search efforts failed, found the girl's body about 980 feet from where bloodhounds lost trace earlier. He went to search the area Friday afternoon after R. W. Swan, owner of the bean field, notified him of a strange odor. A Lane County deputy sheriff, who was at the scene Friday after the girl was found, said he saw what looked like a blood-stained stick about 20 feet from the Lee girl's body.

Sheriff Ed Elder went to Selma, to question a possible suspect, who was cleared after questioning. The girl disappeared the morning of the 29th after telling her mother that she was going to put her doll with the family lunch-box. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Lee of Dexter.

TRUTH ON TOMBSTONE LONDON (UPD The London Evening Standard reported Friday that someone, apparently a hypochondriac, had ordered this inscription for a tombstone: "NOW will you believe I'm sick?" Garner made has way out of the LEOPOLDVILLE The Congo (UPI Premier Patrice Lumumba "slipped away" from his I'nited Nations protectors today and rumors swept Leopoldville tlia he had been shot and killed while trying to pass a roadblock about 30 miles from the capital. The Lumumba report came as tiie Soviet Embassy hauled down its flag at 11:50 a.m. in a humiliating end of relations with the Congo Republic. The flag came down 10 minutes before the deadline imposed by Col. Joseph Mobutu who seized power earlier this week.

Mobuto had ordered the Soviet, Czechoslovakian and "other socialist" embassies here to close and demanded the staffs and their technicians leave the country immediately. It appeared his orders were being obeyed. Destination Unknown Half an hour later Soviet Ambassador Mikhail D. Yakovlev and the Czech ambassador boarded llyushin planes and took off for an unknown destination, probably Russia and Czechoslovakia. The planes were ones given to Lumumba by the Soviet last month.

Congolese troops in front of the Russian Embassy tried to stop Yakovlev and one officer tore open the door and attempted to force the Russian ambassador out. Yakovlev frantically shouted "No, no. Kasavubu! Kasavubu!" and a Ghanaian officer rushed up, swept aside the Congolese officer and permitted the Russian to pass. Doors Close The Czech Embassy had shut Us doors after a night in which diplomats burned secret papers in the garden. Leopoldville has been filled with rumor after rumor since Mobutu deposed Lumumba and it was possible the assassination report had been spread by his enemies.

Mutinous Congolese troops had tried to lynch him on two occasions Thursday. Diplomatic sources believed he would try to flee to Stanleyville, the center of his political strength but the rumors today said he had been captured at a road block and shot. The U.N. command was trying to check the rumors but without success. Colonel Mobutu said he had not heard the rumors of Lumumba's death but that he doubted them.

Armed Guards Before the Soviet ambassador left the embassy Congolese troops and armed Ghanaian soldiers of the U.N. forces confronted each other for three hours before the embassy when a Congolese officer was refused permission to deliver a message to the ambassador. The Congolese arrived in two trucks at 9 a.m. only to run into the Ghanaians who had been on duty in front of the embassy since 1 a.m. The Soviets, who had criticized U.N.

actions in the Congo, had requested U.N. protection. Both sides stood tensely facing each other with their fingers on the triggers while the Congolese commander argued with the stubborn Ghanaian. Newsmen present acted as interpreters. Mobuto Boss The order demanding the Russian Embassy cease its activities was made legal by Mobutu who got President Joseph Kasavubu to issue the order and the Kasavubu-appointed Premier Joseph Ileo to sign it But it was clear Mobutu was in charge.

Before Lumumba slipped away from his U.N. guarded residence there was speculation he would try to fly to Stanleyville in north central Congo. A Bend-bound truck laden Willi mail from Portland left U.S. Highway 97 near the north city limits of town at 3:30 a.m. today and came to rest perched on top of a lava blister.

Joe Gamer, operator of the mail truck, was not injured. Investigating officers said Garner apparently went to sleep as the truck rounded Uie curve between the slate scales and Uie North Unit diversion canal head-gate at (lie city limits. The mail truck, a semi-trailer. left the highway without turning over, climbed a steep, rocky incline and came to rest adjacent to the highway, on a rocky ledge. The truck did not turn over.

Two Americans drop from HAVANA (UPD Cuba today seized three American banks, restricted U.S. Ambassador Philip Bonsai to the embassy area, expelled four U.S. Embassy employes and jailed three others on spy charges in a series of retaliatory moves against the United States. The revolutionary government said the four being expelled and the three jailed for trial on spy charges were sent to Cuba by the United States government to spy on the Chinese Communist New China News Agency. A Cuban note to the embassy said Ambassador Bonsai would be restricted to the Vedado District where the embassy is located while Premier Fidel Castro is in New York for the United Nations General Assembly Session.

Cas tro has been restricted to Man hattan Island where U.N. headquarters are located. He is now expected to fly to New York Sunday. Formal Note Foreign Minister Raul Roa said in a lormai note mat uonsai would be allowed only to move back and forth from the embassy to his residence. The government announced it was intervening, or seizing, me First National City of New York, the Chase Manhattan Bank of New York and the Bank of Boston.

Uniformed militiamen took over the banking promises Friday night. Juan D. Sanches, resident vice president of the First National City Bank, said local managers of the six Havana branches were ordered to open the banks at 10 p.m. Friday night to the militia men with Uie explanation me banks had been seized. Armed guards had been posted around the banks for some time so the actual takeover was no problem.

The First National City has II branches in Cuba with a total of $70 million in deposits and is the largest. The others have deposits of several millions. Those Expelled The four embassy employes ex pelled for alleged espionage today were Mrs. Marjorie Lennox, 26, an attractive San Francisco divorcee who has worked as a secretary; Robert Neet, listed by the Cubans as an embassy employe, and Mr. and Mrs.

Mario Nordio. Ho is Italian and she is American. The three jailed on spy charges were listed by the Cuban government as Eustace Dan Brunet, Ed- mundo K. Taranske and Daniel L. Carswell.

They were accused specifically of operating radio listening devices while spying on the Chinese Communists. Secret service agents seized Mrs. Lennox at her apartment early Tsursday and took her to secret police headquarters. A note by the Cuban foreign ministry said she was connected with a band of North American spies" and that some arrests had been made. Mrs.

Lennox Released Mrs. Lennox was released from jail Friday night and was staying at the Bonsai residence until she leaves the country. Whereabouts of the other three being expelled was not known immediately. A government statement today said the North American "spies" used Nordio's apartment No. 1R2 in the Retiro Medico Building next door to the Communist news agency offices for their spy headquarters, with Mrs.

Lennox' apart ment on the floor above. Cuba said Mrs. Lennox and Neet were "contacts" between the spies and the embassy. The government said Carswell previously came from the United States to install the listening devices and returned later to install more efficient devices. The new devices could be used for espionage even if they forced to leave the apartment, the government said.

Cuba said imposition of travel restrictions on Bonsai was In re-taliation for the "arbitrary limitations" on the restrictions imposed on Castro. It appeared seizure of the banVs was in retaliation for the seizure of two Cuban airliners in New York. A Miami advertising firm slapped a lien on the Cubana airlines assctj Thursday charging non-payment of a $237,000 debt. NAS. A buffet lunch at the refuge headquarters will follow this evening.

Prepare for Fight Bucliheister, who crossed the continent to dedicate the memorial, cautioned Oregonians that they must be prepared to fight for preservation of wildlife lands despite the seeming seciu-ity of such areas under federal and state game agencies. Buchheister declared: "Let us not for a moment be so complacent as to believe we shall not be confronted with new threats to this treasure, the Malheur refuge. "Today we are engaged in a fight to keep another great wild life area from being given away to land speculators or dried for diversion. I refer to the Tule and Klamath basin areas, which lie but a short distance from here. "These schemes are pressed for the commercial benefit of a few, who would belittle the fact that millions, all up and down the western states, use and benelit from the wildlife that could not exist except for the reservations." The dedication was preceded by guided tours of the refuge, south of Burns.

On Sunday morning, there will be other guided tours. Panama flag issue settled WASHINGTON (UPD Presi dent Eisenhower today authorized the flying of a Panamanian flag in tli Tanal Zone as "visual evi dence of Panama's titular sover eignty" over that area. The move came after a long nnirnversv between the Republic of Panama and the United States. The flag issue was involved in riots in Panama last year. In announcing the President's action the White House said: "The President hones that his decision will demonstrate the continuing close bonds that exist between the peoples of the United States and the Republic of Pana ma and their governments.

The announcement recalled that the President told a news conference last Dec. 2 that he believed there should be visible evidence of Panama's titular sovereignty over the canal zone.
