(Sentinel photo) Several Funnel Clouds Reported By United Press International Chilly Canadian air spread across Michigan today but was not expected to cause any more turbulence like that of Monday when hail, funnel clouds and water spouts were reported around the northern part of the state "The air over Michigan is much more stable today than it was Monday." the Weather Bu- reau in Detroit said. The trouble Monday was caused by cold Canadian air spreading over still-warm lake water. Water spouts were reported in Lakes Michigan, Huron and Superior Funnel clouds were sighted near Alpena and Cadillac, touching off tornado warnings in those areas. But the twisters apparently didn't touch ground and no damage was reported. Some hail fell at Northport in the Grand Traverse area. Heavy rain with lightning was reported at Elk Rapids, but there was little wind and no damage Several water spouts were spotted Monday on Old Mission Peninsula near Traverse City when a line of squalls moved across Grand Traverse Bay into Kalkaska County Traverse City police said they had six or seven reports of clouds dipping down to the bay and forming water spouts. It was after the turbulent front moved inland that the funnel cloud was seen near Cadillac. Later in the afternoon. State Police reported two funnels, one southeast of Alpena and the other west of the city. The one described as a water spout was over Lake Huron. The other was near the city airport. The funnel clouds around Al- pena were preceded by an eighth of an inch of small hail. Explaining the turbulence, the Weather Bureau said "this very- cold air moving over warm lake waters causes a very unstable situation in the atmosphere. If the upper winds are not too strong, it makes an ideal situa- tion for so-called funnels or water spouts. "The air is much more stable today. We now have rather strong winds aloft. This condi- tion doesn't allow things to de- velop as they did Monday. So we don't anticipate any mori; turbulence." Weather Variable cloudiness and cool today and tonight with a few scattered showers today, most- ly near the Great Lakes. Low tonight mostly in the 30s. Wednesday partly cloudy and slightly warmer in the after- noon, high 53-62. Winds norther- ly 10-25 miles, diminishing slow- ly tonight and Wednesday. Thursday partly cloudy and a little warmer. The sun sets tonight at p.m. and rises tomorrow at a.m. The temperature at 11 a.m. today was 51. Local Report For the 24 hours ending at 6 a.m. today the instruments recorded the following: Maximum, 61. Minimum, 29. Precipitation, .04 One Year Ago Yesterday Maximum, 57. Minimum, 48. Precipitation, none. Hold Suspect In Slaying LANSING held a Saginaw man today in con- nection with last Friday's kid- naping and molesting of a 5- year-old girl but there were no plans to issue a warrant against him before Wednesday at the earliest. Ingham County Prosecutor Leo Farhat said the man was arrested Monday night on sus- picion of being the abductor of Michelle Moran of East Lansing. But Farhat said he would not authorize a warrant until a complete investigation had been made. "There are a number of state- ments made and certain leads which must be checked before a decision is made on whether to seek a warrant." Farhat said The prosecutor estimated "the many loose ends could not pos- sibh be pulled together before Wednesday morning." Eight More Groups Win House Group Turns Down Rights Bill Kennedy Wins Initial Battle Clearing Way For Moderate Bill WASHINGTON (UPI) The House Judiciary Committee handed President Kennedy a major civil rights victory today by clearing the way for approv- al of a moderate bill in place of one he regarded as too tough to pass Congress. The committee delayed until its next meeting a formal vote on the compromise bill. It is designed to remove ra- cial barriers in many private business enterprises serving the public, guarantee Negro voting rights in federal elections and give the power government intercede wider Issue for Water Gains Board Okay Hold Local Man On Dope Charge A 39-year-old Holland man was arraigned Monday for posses- sion of marijuana following a four-day around the clock watch of his activities by law officers from the Holland police and the Ottawa County Sheriff depart- ment.

A wintery storm off Lake Erie dumped an inch of snow in four Northeastern Ohio coun- ties and an inch and a half of hail pelted Cleveland. Gusty winds up to 60 miles an hour whipped the New Eng- land coast. Fishing fleets sought the safety of port as the storm blew up 13-foot waves. Visibility was as low as half a mile in ram and fog. Heavy rain fell across the tin- der dry forests of eastern New England. Nantucket, Mass., re- ported 1.86 inches in six hours today. Boston had 1.10 inches. The Weather Bureau said as much as 2Vfe inches fell in some areas. More moderate rainfall fell further inland northward to central Maine, where snow was reported in the highlands. Mod- erate rain also fell in the Caro- linas and Virginia. Some sleet was mixed with rain at Chicago and snow flur- ries fell in the mountains of West Virginia. The mercury dipped to 26 de- grees at Fayetteville, Ark., and even lower in the frosty Dako- tas and Minnesota. Bemidji, Minn., had an 18-de- gree reading, International Falls, Minn., had 20.

Allies Don't Like U.S. Stand on Wheat Shipping WASHINGTON (UPI) The United States' insistence that American ships be given prior- ity to carry any U.S. wheat to Russia is drawing fire not only from the Russians but from America's maritime allies as well. Diplomatic sources say that Japan, Norway, Denmark, Swe- den and Britain have mally or informally, and through various diplomatic to the United States over the "Ameri- can bottoms" requirement.

On the Democratic side, the con- ferees included the speaker, House Democratic Leader Carl Albert of Oklahoma, and Judi- ciary Chairman Emmanuel Cel- ler, N.Y. Rural Fire Ban Still in Effect GRAND ban on fires in rural areas is still in effect, Conservation Officer Harold Bowditch emphasized today. A Grand Haven city decision to allow burning of leaves from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. resulted in considerable confusion Monday. No leaf burning is allowed in Holland. Bowditch said the governor's ban prohibits burning of rub- bish, brush, and camp fires ex- cept in authorized camp grounds. Smoking also is ruled out except in places of habition, approved camp grounds or in- side vehicles. No matches, ashes or burning tobacco may be thrown from vehicles. Bowditch said as soon as the ban is lifted, people will be no- tified through the press.

Asked if the question would come up, Sen. Howard W Cannon, D-Nev., said: ''It doesn't appear to have any ma- teriality now. If it appears to later, we might go into it." Sen. Joseph S. Clark, D-Pa., said he also was in the dark about the woman. She was giv- en a ticket home by the West German government following an investigation of her penchant for high living while her hus- band was based in Washington. Sen. John J. Williams, R-Del. the committee's first scheduled witness, showed up armed with a stack of notes and papers. He told reporters his presentation would take "some time." The GOP senator already had begun his own informal inquiry into Baker's financial opera- tions when the Senate, on his resolution, ordered the rules investigation into Baker's ac- tivities. School Board Studies Needs, Improvements The Board of Education has taken under study plans drawn up by the principals of elemen- tary schools, junior high and high school, on school needs and how to implement improve- ments if the special millage vote passes at a special school election Nov. 26. Carroll Norlin, representing elementary principals, present- ed revised plans for strengthen- ing the entire elementary school program at a meeting of the Board of Education Monday af- ternoon in the library of Hol- land High School. Plans for programs in the s e c o n d a r y schools had been submitted pre- viously. Board President Harvey Buter said all these reports as well as suggestions from school cus- todians, residents concerned over school matters, will be carefully considered. He said the board is awaiting a report from the salary committee of Holland MEA on next year's salary schedule. Information will be available on most of these points well in advance of the special election Nov. 26 to vote three milfs for three years. The school system MICH. POTATOES, 10 LBS. 29C 25 lb.

The elementary principals' re- port asked for additional class- room teachers to bring the ra- tio of pupils to teachers below 30 to 1.

Arthur Seddon, board mem- ber, suggested more flexibility in moving children from school to school to effect the desired 28 or 27 to 1 ratio, basing the move on the primary goal of educational quality at minimum expense.

Graham, on a three day speaking tour before Houston religious and civic groups, said "our people look to the govern- ment instead of to God." He said "it will destroy the moral fiber of our nation when our people look to the govern- ment for everything to fill our needs." Graham was emphatic when he said he has no political am- bitions because "I am not qual- ified and besides, nobody would vote for me." Charge Breach Of Public Trust WASHINGTON fUPI) Rep. the labor department Oliver Bolton, R-Ohio, said to- day that Labor Secretary W. Willard Wirtz should withdraw as host for a recep- tion to raise funds for Sen. Harrison A. Williams Jr., D- N.J. Bolton, renewing an attack on the cabinet officer, charged that Wirtz committed a "most seri- ous breach of public trust" by seeking c a m pa i g n donations from lobbyists and trade asso-' ciation representatives. He also challenged President Kennedy to say if solicitation of funds from such sources by cabinet or sub-cabinet officials would be condoned. A spokesman for Wirtz said the labor secretary did not in- tend to withdraw and would at- tend the Nov. 14 reception de- signed to raise funds for Wil- liams' reelection bid in 1964. The spokesman said Wirtz had screened the invitation list in advance to make sure that no labor leaders, government employes, registered lobbyists listed in the Congressional Rec- ord or trade association offi- cials were being solicited. John Sharon, Washington law- yer who is chairman of the re- ception, said that he and J. Ed- ward Day, former postmaster general, screened the list care- fully to omit anyone "we knew to have a matter currently be- Sharon said in an interview that names were gathered from lists of Democratic party con- tributors who live in the Wash- ington, D. C., area and had do- nated or more in the past. Contributors to Williams' 1958 campaign and New Jersey Gpv. Richard Hughes' 1961 election fund and a "group of people known to be friends of the sena- tor" were added, Sharon said. The list of a "couple thou- sand" then was whittled down to about "900 or by elim- inating lobbyists, trade associa- tion officials and those with business pending before Wil- liams' Senate committees or the department, he said. Sharon said there was "ab- solutely" no intention to solicit funds from lobbyists or trade groups, but he added: "If we made mistakes, we've made mistakes." He declined to make the guest list public because "it's not fair to the people who have contributed or are being asked to contribute." Bolton charged last Wednes- day that Wirtz hit a "new low" in Kennedy administration tech- niques for raising political funds. Bolton's office, however, declined to make public the names of lobbyists or trade as- sociation representatives he ac- cused Wirtz of soliciting for do- nations. He said disclosure ot the names could be "embar- fore the senator's committees' rassinc" to those invited.
