2 The Newt-Review, Roieburg,' Ore. Fri., Sept. 22, 1961 Rusk Asks UM To Select Successor To Hammarslcjold NEW YORK (AP) Secretary of State Dean Rusk called on the United Nations General Assembly today to name "an outstanding world leader" to take over the powers of U.N. secretary-general temporarily. in a statement prepared for a speech he is making here later today, Rusk declared, "Events cannot permit drift and indecision in the leadership of the United Nations." He declared that the 99-nation General Assembly "must move rapidly to fill the void" created Hurricane Esther Heads Out To Sea By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Hurricane Esther, downgraded to a tropical storm, headed on out to sea today. Her center never touched the American mainland. The Boston Weather Bureau Thursday night reported she was traveling northeasterly into the Atlantic with a center wind velocity of less than 70 miles per hour. The Canadian maritime provinces, alerted for any big blow, were told to expect winds of only 40 m.p.h. and a fair amount of rainfall. by the death of Dag Hammar-skjold. Rusk's statement was released about two hours in advance of its formal delivery at a luncheon meeting of the Foreign Press Association. The move was obviously aimed at trying to stir up a powerful drive in the United Nations Assembly, to override Soviet opposition to the appointment of a new U.N. chief executive. Rusk and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko discussed the U.N. leadership crisis in a 4'i-hour meeting Thursday afternoon. Most of their time, however, was spent on the Berlin crisis. On the U.N. front of the East-West cold war, Gromyko told Rusk he intends to insist on the appointment of a three-man di Camas Valley Man Pleads Innocent Lions Club Gets Bid To Hear Governor At Thursday night's meeting of the Roseburg Lions Club, Don Lowe was introduced as the Rose burg High School student repre sentative to the club.

For Thursday night's program, Pat Zuspan, a club member, and a member of the Douglas Pelicans, talked on a recent trip of club members to Discovery Bay, 50 miles north of Vancouver, B.C. where members spent a week recently. Firemen Answer Call To Local Motel Fire The Roseburg Rural Fire Department answered a call to the Pleasant Motel at 1210 NB Stephens St. at 2:15 a.m. today. The fire was confined to the interior of the living quarters of the owners, and resulted in an estimated $150 damage to the wall and furniture. According to the firemen, the fire resulted when some furniture was left too close to a wall heater. The drop in temperature during the night caused the automatic heater to go on, catching the furniture on fire. The Roseburg Fire Department answered a call to a car fire on SE Fowler St. at Douglas Ave. about 10 a.m. today, when gas leaking onto the manifold started an engine blaze, firemen reported. The 1948 car was valued at $190, and the loss was estimated at about $60. Dee Kelley Dee H. Kclloy, 71, died at a Roseburg hospital Thursday after a long illness.

Harry Leaton Brown. 38. of Camas Valley pleaded innocent to larceny under $75 on arraignment n the District Court of Gerald R. Hayes Thursday. He is charged in a complaint with the theft of an Alaskan litis ky dog, owned by Donna Louise Malfait, of Route 4, Roseburg, on Aug. 18. The alleged theft took place at the owner's residence near the Nordic Veneer plant on the Norm Umpqua Road. Brown's trial was set down for 2 p.m. Sept. 27, and bail was set at $100. Huckins Returned Mark Clem Huckins, 50, of Al bany has been brought to Rose burg from the Linn County jail to face a charge of obtaining money by false pretenses. He was rrraigned Thursday in the court of Justice of Peace War ren DcLaVergne at Drain and asked for a preliminary hearing, which will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday of next week. Dean LaVcrne Roe Thursday was sentenced to serve 30 days in the Douglas County jail on a contempt of court charge. He was placed on probation, however, on provision that he support his min or children. rectorate to take over Hammar-skjold's duties. He is absolutely opposed to any kind of any tern porary arrangement, diplomats said. Thus, while the Berlin crisis carries a greater danger of war, the U.N. dispute presents a more immediate and critical Soviet challenge to the United States and the leadership role it seeks to play in the United Nations. "It is unfortunately clear, Rusk said, "that an immediate agreement cannot be expected on the naming of a permanent sec retary-general. The United States therefore believes that action must be taken now to assure that the functions of office of the secre tary-general are performed effec tively and fully while agreement is sought on the appointment of a new secretary-general. "An outstanding world leader should be named immediately to perform the functions of the office of the secretary-general for a temporary period, during which efforts to elect a permanent sec retary-general should proceed ir accordance with Article 97 of the charter."
