One of the victims later died, another is in critical condition. Vermilion cab operator Miles Shilling was driving along Routes 2 and 6 just east of the Vermilion River when he found the tangled wreckage of two cars strewn across the highway. The car owned by Howard Lummus, of Cleve- land, was on fire. Shilling rescued four occupants, then summoned Vermilion police, an ambulance and the fire department. Richard Turner, 32, of Cleveland, riding in the Lummus auto, died of injuries in St. Joseph's Hospital, Lorain at 4:25 a.m. Delbert Fleming, 27, of Wakeman, driver of the other auto is suffering from fractured right ankle, possible fractured pelvis and possible fracture of lower back.

Kennedy Jolly' With Khrushchev Riesel Calls For Labor 'Guerrillas By TONY THOMSON Register Staff Writer Victor Riesel, nationally-known writer on labor affairs, today urged the U.S. to form a "guerrilla labor force" to combat the communist plan to gain world dominance by collecting labor movements in other countries. Riesel said there was "not the slightest chance" of the Communists taking over control of the U.S. labor movement in this country from its "dedicated anti-Red" leaders as long as we continue to guard against it. No Takers Yet Chamber Industrial Has 86 Leads SCHOOL'S OUT - Don Hammond, a graduating Sandusky High School senior, gave vent to his emotions as classes for the class of '61 ended yesterday.

(UP1)-Security police were reported closing in today on the three un-captured-assassins of Generalissimo Rafael L. Trujillo, and their arrest was expected in a matter of hours. "We will have them all1 in custody, dead or alive, before long," said Ambassador to Iran Leland Rosenberg, a key adviser of Gen. Rafael L. Trujillo Jr., who has in effect replaced his slain father.

The three still at large were identified as Antonio do la Maza Vasquez, Salvador Estrella and Antonio Iniberl. Country Reported Quiet Ciudad Trujillo and the rest of the country were reported quiet, although some sections of the city still swarmed with soldiers armed with bayoneted rifles or submachine guns. The general public appeared to be willing to accept young Trujillo's rule just as it did that of his father, who dominated Dominican affairs for more than 30 years prior to his assassination Tuesday night. Thousands of hysterical mourners crowded into the National Palace Friday to get a last glimpse of their slain leader. Diplomatic sources said the only comparable example of mass grief they could recall was In- dia's mourning for Mohandas K. Gandhi when he was assassinated in 1948. Kill Accused Assassin The accused assassin killed Friday was Army Lt. Amado Garcia Guerrero, who was shot by secret police in a gun battle at a house here where he and three other suspected killers were hiding. The Sandusky Area Chamber of Commerce industrial committee made a total of 75 visits to 50 industrial prospects from 1959 through 1961, the Chamber's annual report indicated today. Some 10 of these prospects made a total of 15 return visits to Sandusky, but none of them has so far indicated a decision to build a plant here. The Chamber now has a file of^ 8fi industrial possibilities, has completed two nation-wide promotional mailings to 2,000 industries, 300 long distance phone calls and 150 presentations of the "Sandusky Story". Industry and utility officials were also taken on an air tour of local industrial sites. Bright Side On the brighter side, the Chamber reported 13 local plants have indicated they intend to spend $755,000 for new plant and equipment in 1961, adding 95,000 square feet of floor space. Thirty-two of 93 Erie County industries, which represent about one fourth of the total manufacturing employment in the county, spent $1,097,111 for new plant and equipment in I960, the Cham ber reported. However, these same 32 industries reported a net decrease in employment of 20 and unemployment remains well ove 10 per cent of the total work farce covered by state unemployment compensation. Year's Highlights Among highlights of its year's activities, the Chamber listed: "Welcoming NASA to Sandus ky." Completion of 17 week economic discussion group. Stand against Federal Aid to Education and Area Redevelop ment Bills. Solicitations Control Committee formed by merchants division. Dedication of new sewage dis posal plant. - Bad check warning system. "Keep Pace With Tomorrow' campaign, 98 per cent of goal. Exchange Jokes At Luncheon Mass Alert For Marines, Navy Ships NORFOLK, Va. (UPI)-Mas-sive contingents of Navy and Marine troops were dispatched from bases along the East Coast Friday night in what the Navy termed a "general alert." A Navy spokesman at Atlantic Fleet Headquarters here confirmed that combat-ready Marines were boarding the amphibious assault aircraft carrier Boxer. He said it was "impossible" to reveal whether the 'move was more than just a routine training exercise. In Jacksonville, Fla., the huge carrier Shangri-La, its decks loaded with jet and propeller-driven planes, also pulled out to sea. A spokesman at the Mayport Naval Air Station said the Shangri-La had been put on an alert status Thursday and its crew ordered "to be ready in the event of an emergency." VIENNA (UPI)-President Kennedy and Premier. .Khrushchev met alone today to take one another's measure after a "rollicking" luncheon in which the two heads of state traded jokes at the start of Kennedy's first East-West summit conference. The 44-year-old Kennedy and the 67-year-old Russian premier withdrew from their aides in mid-afternoon and began an earnest discussion with nobody else present except their interpreters. The President and Khrushchev met for the first time with a firm handshake on the steps of the American ambassador's residence on the outskirts of Vienna. They immediately began a con versation - with Secretary of State Dean Rusk and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko among those present - certain to shape the future of Soviet-Ameri can relations. Delay Luncheon The opening talks were so intense that luncheon was delayed half an hour, but once the luncheon started it became what was described as a "friendly, rollicking affair" with jokes passed. Khrushchev was said to have proposed one toast that lasted 10 minutes. Afterwards they took a nine-minute stroll through the garden of the U.S. Embassy residence. Both men could be seen, gesturing animatedly. Gets Warm Welcome The President got a warm reception on his arrival this morning from Paris. A crowd estimated by police at 200,000 lined streets despite a steady drizzle and cries of "willkommen" (wel-(Continued on Page 12-Col. 3.) Says Russians Are Bankrupt Victor Riesel says his research shows that "the Soviet Union is bankrupt; its railroads are in disrepair; its motor vehicles are poor; its hospitals are archaic; its steel plants are few, despite the figures they give out. "Their greatest weapon will be building labor movements abroad to dislodge us." s ^ < *� " s < Riesel, here to speak before the Sandusky Area Chamber of Commerce tonight, said the new Soviet weapon was infiltration of the labor movements of the newly-formed countries around the globe - 'Laos, Viet Nam, and especially Africa." These infant labor movements were the battle-ground for the Reds' struggle to take over the new countries, Riesel said. Where the Communists are able to capture a labor movement, they can take over a country, Riesel warned. He said he had seen the Red labor formula operate success �� fully in Africa, Japan, Italy and France. "They're doing the same thing with considerable success in England, Canada and Latin America. Orders have been given to start rebuilding from nothing in the U.S. "The Soviets are far more successful in labor warfare than with guns," Riesel said over breakfast in the coffee shop at the Hotel Breakers at Cedar Point.

"Unless we organize a strong "President Kennedy recognizes this and is beefing" up our labor contacts abroad. Unless we move in and help in the new and unstable countries-in the same way as if we had discovered caches of contrary force, the Communists | arms-we are- going to lose the will use labor to dissolve the support of the new nations." solvency of countries th r o u g h strikes and topple governments through controlling their political al years ago, said he did not parties, Riesel warned.

In Everything But Years '�/ Benefactor's Estate Isnt For Sale Statistics BIRTHS PROVIDENCE Mr. and Mrs. Robert Marks-bury, 801 E. Bogart Rd., son. Mr. and Mrs. Robert Baum, S. Hayes Avenue, Rt. 2, Sandusky, son. By WARD CANNEL NEW YORK (NEA)-Hever mind how they do it in Cuba. Nobody is just going to walk in and take over Rafael Leonidas Tru-jilo's estate-the Dominican Republic. At last count by this reporter, more than 2,000 statues of El Benefactor towered over the streets, plazas and highways of his tiny nation. It's going to take a new dictator months of steady hammering to demolish those statues. And then, what about replacing them? Even an empty space can be a reminder . . . "You know, it is not so easy to be a statue," Generalissimo Trujillo once told me at his amazing lunch table. "It is very lonely. It is very hard. "When you build a country the way I have done, you build it alone. When I took office here, we had been through a fruitless revolution and a devastating hurricane. We were bankrupt. I had to begin from the beginning-alone." He spoke very quietly because, he explained, his brother Hector who sat at the other end of the table was now ortsidant of the reoublic and oonsenueatby the MMMftion �nttu. TRUJILLO "There is no reason to offend him," El Benefactor whispered. "But I will tell you: I would do it all again because I love my people. "Of course they embarrass me with all these statues. But how can I stop people from putting them up?" Nobody at the long lunch table volunteered an answer. Curiously, unmannerly-but typically-only American tourists in the Dominican Republic spoke out in offended tones about the statues, the plaques, the cornerstones, the calendars, the photographs, paintings and signs that everywhere commemorated the "Era of Trujillo." Why are we offended? To go by lunch table talk at the palace in Ciudad Trujillo, it is because the U.S. is a morbid nation which honors only its dead. But in the small Dominican Republic after 30 years of El Benefactor's work, everything is so clean and healthy that there are just not enough dead to go around. "I know what you Americans think of me," the dictator told me. "And, when one of my enemies comes to your country, you confer a degree on him and publish his indictments of me." But, a� he did not mention anybody by name, it would have (Continued en Page 12-CoJ. 4) By H. W. P. MOONEY Register Area Editor BELLEVUE-J. D. Cook will be 100 years old Monday, but you'd never guess it to look at htm. He looks like a man of 70. There's no irony intended in that statement, either. There's a whale of a difference between 70 and 100 when the span is measured in years. Those are the years when the memory fails and the body weakens. The century mark seems to fade farther into the distance the closer it gets. Many times, those who reach it wish they never had. Not J. D. Cook. He's thankful. "I'm thankful the good Lord has been so good to me," he said yesterday. He spoke from a hospital bed, but he wasn't lying in it. He was perched lightly on the edge, his feet dangling over the side. Becoming A Habit Temporary hospitalization is getting to be a habit with him, he explained apologetically. Every now and then a blood vessel bursts and he goes off to the hospital for a transfusion. He's had 41 of them in the past six months. "Think of that!" he exclaimed. "Forty-one pints of somebody else's blood." He shook his head ruefully. J. D. COOK , . . 100 Years Monday "Did you ever hear of that?" he asked. "Blood vessels breaking?" Then, without waiting for a reply: 'T never did either. Till it started happening to me." He shook his head again. "But the Lord has been good to me," he continued, "all through my life. I'm particularly thankful that he saw fit to let me keep my mental faculties." He tapped his skull with a big finger. The finger projected from a hand sized to accommodate it. J. D. Cook is a big man. He's tall, big-boned, broad-shouldered and lean. He's not skinny, but there's not an ounce of excess fat on his frame either. It's "Moderation" "It's moderation," he explains. "Ah my life, I've done everything in 'moderation. I drink a little beer from time to time. (Continued on Page 12-Col. 3.)
