Ayers' alleged confession said he and Mrs Pumphrey had been in-. timate for 18 years and they planned to do away with her hus- band and his wife, who is Mrs.. Pumphrey's mother. But at Friday's hearing, under questioning by his attorney. H. V. McClellan, Ayers claimed he did not remember making the state- ment and that he blacked out com- pletely and woke up in jail.

Miners Ordered To Stop Work Lewis Sets 10-Day Memorial Period WASHINGTON m John L Lewis in the midst of bargaining for a new coal wage contract, has ordered his miners out of the pits for a 10-day "memorial" work stoppage at the end of this month. Nothing was said in the an- nouncement to relate the move to the negotiations but Lewis custom- arily uses the contract-permitted mourning period in connection with new contract talks. Officially the purpose is commemoration of the casualties of mining disasters. The designated period, announced in the United Mine Workers Jour- nal, is Aug 23 to Sept. 1, inclusive. Aug. 23 falls on a Saturday when the miners customarilv do not work Monday. Sept. 1 is the Labor Dav so the stoppage will involve only six normal working days.

Hugh White makes a report on the national convention. Wright said he wanted to give his own report which "will not ap- ply to anyone but myself Supporters of Democratic presi- dential nominee Gov. Adlai Ste- venson did not regard his state- ment as "sounding like he would concur in the maiority report." Stevenson supponers spent most of Friday night hcing up support they hope will crush the States Righters and Democrats backing Republican nominee Gen. Dwight Eisenhower The showdown comes Monday when the conventian will decide what course of action the Missis- sippi party will take in presi- dential campaign.

An additional 1 09 miles of as- phalt streets remains to be done by the contractor. Peterson said that five miles of th streets repaired by the city have been or are being black-top- ped. He said that most of the work "has already been completed." None of that five miles had been previously paved. There are no plans "at present." Peterson said, "to pave the re- maining 12 miles." Under the original contract, Boyce was responsible for return- ing all streets broken up by sewer work to their former conditions. A later agreement between the city and contractor, however, pro- vided for releasing Boyce of re- sponsibility for repairing unpaved streets and turned the job over to the city's street department. Boyce, from his construction fund, provides "road oil of the quality required in total money value equal to 20 cents per lineal foot of sewer line installed" to be turned over to the street depart- ment in lieu of the work. An additional "20 cents per lin- eal foot" was paid "for the actual length of the streets which are (Turn to STREETS, Page 2) Comdr.
