Wonder Bof Weds Heiress Conductor Thomas Schip-pers, a Kalamazoo (Mich.) native who is the "wonder-boy" of American classical musie, was married Saturday In New York to Elaine (Nonle) Phipps, heiress to teel, real estate, shipping and chemical millions. Schippers, 33, is leading conductor of the Metropolitan Opera. H and his bride left for Europe Immediately after the ceremony. He is scheduled to conduct the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra next week. The engagement of the music world's handsomest and most eligible bachelor and the 26-year-old great-granddaughter of Andrew Carnegie's partner, the late Henry Phipps, had been rumored for months. Schippers was named a conductor of the New York City Opera in 1951, the New York Philharmonic in 1952, and the Metropolitan Opera in 1955. His conducting duties ended a 15-year career as a concert pianist which began with his debut as a prodigy at the age of six in Kalamazoo. The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Michael G. Phipps, of Old Westbury, N.Y, and Palm Beach. Her father devotes himself to the family's real estate interests, reputed to be the largest family holdings on the East Coast, and his directorship in W.

WILL BE CLOSED Monday, April 19th There'll be no more free nude shows by waitresses in San Francisco's North Beach restaurants. California's Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control director called a halt to the current contest among restaurants in North Beach, Los Angeles, Sacramento and other places to see which could show the most of their waitresses and still serve food and drinks. James O. Reimel, ABC director, said his action followed a meeting of 25 restaurant owners who pleaded for help in controlling the competition that had forced them into baring more and more of their waitresses' charms. Topless uniforms are out, beginning Monday, Reimel ordered. Entertainment billed as fashion shows must display merchandise actually on sale in stores, and entertainers will be confined to stage areas, he said. And, they'd better install doors and window shades to keep the "rubber-neck-ers" from getting a free show, too. It's time to cover up, girls! Portland Shows Loretta Young Portland Mason, 16-year-old daughter of James and Pamela Mason, won a $2,800 settlement Friday in a suit against actress-producer Loretta Young over a TV contract. The suit, filed in 1962 by Portland's mother, had sought $138,500 from Miss Young for terminating the young actress's contract to appear in a television series of Miss Young's Lyl Productions. Miss Young had charged the Masons since divorced had interfered with the contract by failing to provide the proper ward- Portland Mason robe for Portland. But Superior Court Judge Orlando Rhodes ruled that Portland was entitled to her salary. o Ladies Drive Randy Out of Biz To newsman Randolph Churchill, having his copy "mucked about" by women editors was just too much. He quit the "Queen" last week because of it. Churchill, son of the late British statesman, complained that he got a proof of one of his articles a full day after the copy deadline. "Of course, my copy was tampered with and mangled beyond all recognition," he said. "Nearly all my little jests, which might have titillated some of your readert,, were cut out." Roman Catholic Chaplain Lt. Col. John J. O'Connor, conducting Good Friday services on Hill 321 in Vietnam: "What I want you to do I3 to reflect sincerely on the suffering of Christ, and how in this holy season wa can somehow unite our suffering with His, that it may be used in some mysterious way for good." Dallas (Ala.) County Sheriff Jim Clark, reacting to Federal Court orders out-1 a w i n g his volunteer posse in racial matters: "I'm as proud of my posse as Washington was of his troops at Valley Forge." "A pity you should see fit to resign from yet another publication for reasons that do less than justice to yourself," replied ' Queen" editor Jocelyn Stevens. She marked it all up to Churchill's "impatience and intolerance towards my hard-working and conscientious staff, mainly, it appears, because they are women."

Youth Corps to Join Battle Against Floods Cupid loses out to floods. Page 10A. From VPl end A JOHNSON CITY, Tex. President Johnson announced Saturday that Neighborhood Youth Corps trainees will Be made available for flood control and reclamation work in Midwestern states hit by fiood and tornado disasters. Meanwhile, the Mississippi River began cresting in St. Paul and Minneapolis at its nignest level in history, but a foot lower than expected. The crest wasn t expected un til Tuesday. "This is a relief to all of us, said river specialist Joseph Strub. He said the crest would start abating Monday. STRUB SAID it will be a week before the river falls four feet to the level of the previous record 1952 flood. "That means workers are going to have a close watch on the dikes for some time," Strub said. Four consecutive cold nights made the Mississippi crest hold at 20 feet at Minneapolis and 25.85 at St. Paul, instead of the predicted 21 and 27 feet. The Mississippi has flooded a 600-mile stretch in five states. President Johnson announced that Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtr had offered assistance of poverty program youths, aged 16 through 21, in public parks and other community projects for which regular Federal disaster assistance is not available. Governors of the states concerned must request the youth aid. The President said that in Minnesota the Neighborhood Youth Corps' conservation proj ect enrollees already are help ing in flood control. For thousands of Midwestern ers, Easter will mean another day of slogging in mud, driving a truck or hoisting a heavy sand sack. Easter dinner for many will be a sandwich and coffee furnished by the Red Cross. IN ST. PAUL, Minnesota's capital, the airport and railroad station were flooded, 800 persons were out of their homes, lowland industries were evacu ated and flooded -out postoffice workers sorted mail by gaslight. Water flowed over rooftops in suburban Elsewhere Saturday: The Mississippi rolled at a record 15.9 feet at La Crosse, Wis., almost four feet beyond flood stage. It was expected to hit 17 feet Sunday and to crest' at 18 feet this week. Authorities said 14,426 residents of 16 Wisconsin counties were preparing to evacuate their dwellings. A barge rammed the draw span of the municipal bridge over the Mississippi at Keokuk, Iowa. High school students and National Guardsmen sandbagged levees at Dubuque, Clinton and Davenport, Iowa. Water flowed down the main street of Hannibal, Mo. Minnesota counted 10 dead. Gov. Karl Rolvaag said "very preliminary estimates" show $36 million in damage. THE MISSISSIPPI River town of Wabasha, Minn., remained an island, but food was being brought by roundabout roads to the edge of town and ferried across the moat by trucks. The town's hospital is on high ground and is not threatened. One of the state's biggest dike-building jobs neared completion at Winona. The city is gambling its municipal life on a wall of dirt and sandbags about nine miles long, built by paid contractors and laborers. The city took no chances on amateur volunteers. The flood perils brought by the Mississippi and it3 tributaries stretch all along the western edge of Wisconsin. Police Doubt Chicagoan's Confession in 3 Slayings Free Press Wire Services ! CHICAGO A 44-year-old Chicago man was arrested Sat urday after he telephoned po lice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to claim he killed two women and a girl in Ben ton Harbor, Mich. Berrien County Sheriff's de tectives immediately headed for Chicago to question the man, but from what he told Chicago police, there appeared little chance he actually was the slayer. The man, identified as Robert Mills, admitted he had been in Illinois and California men tal institutions. DETECTIVE Edward Snellen said that Mill's account of the slayings included no similarity! to the lacts as known. Speller said Mills told him he met the three victims in a bar in Benton Harbor and drove them to the woods where he attempted to rape one, stabbing her when she resisted, and killed the other two when they fought him. Speller quoted Mills as saying he shot all three with a .45 caliber pistol. He said the victims were 42, 40 and 17 years of age, Speller said. ACTUALLY, Speller said, the victims were 60, 37 and 7; none had been shot; authorities der termined that they were not all killed at the same time, but that they were killed elsewhere and later left in the woods. Mills was booked on a charge of disorderly conduct and held for investigation. The bodies of Diane Carter, 7, Mrs. Olin Boyer, 60, and Mrs. Robert Jones, 37, all of Benton Harbor, were found in a pine grove fringe of a Watervliet fruit orchard some 10 miles east of Benton Harbor on April 4.
