And Thursday is moving day for Methodist ministers who re- ceived new appointments at the annual session of the Oklahoma Conference. Each is expected to be "settled in" and in the pul- pit preaching his opening ser- mon to the new congregation come Sunday. For the Siffords the move means re-assignment for him to the First Methodist Church of Konawa. but it means retire- ment from the ministry for her.

She is among the few ordained women ministers in the church.- For the past eight years she has held regular charges. While he pastored the Tishomingo Church before going to Coalgate, she was pastor of the .Milburn Church. A new church was built at Tupelo during her min- istry.

Chairman John L. McClellan, D-Ark., announcing the date to- day, estimated that 100 witnesses may be called. He said hearings are expected to last "possibly for several weeks." Estes, the Texas financier who built a financial empire on grain storage, fertilizer sales, cotton growing and other businesses, says he is now bankrupt. He is under federal indictment for fraud, and. state and federal agencies as well as two congres- sional committees are looking into his activities. A House subcommit- tee under Rep. L. H. Fountain, D- N.C., already has held two days of hearings. The Senate hearings are expect- ed to be much more extensive, and may last intermittently into the late summer or fall. McClellan said the first phase opening this month will be based on preliminary investigations by the committee staff "into the ac tivities of Billie Sol Estes, hi! transactions with the Department of Agriculture, as well as the ad- ministrative actions taken by the department in connection there with." McClellan also announced that prior to the Estes hearings the committee will hold public hear- ings into the operations and ac- tivities of the American Guild of Variety Artists, also known as AGVA. These hearings will start on- Tuesday, June 12, .and .may take 8 to 10 days to complete. Railroad Workers Get 10.28 Cent Pay Raise CHICAGO (AP) Some non-operating workers of the na- tion's railroads will receive a wage increase of 10.28 cents an hour under an agreement which follows recommendations of a presidential fact-finding board. The one-year wage agreement was announced Tuesday night by negotiators for the 11 unions rep- resenting non-operating workers and the carriers. It provides 4 cents an hour retroactive to last Feb. 1 and 6.28 cents retroactive to May 1. George E. Leighty, chairman of the committee representing the unions, said of the agreement, "I think the. carriers feel that it's too much and we feel that it's too little but we have reached an agreement and that's it" The unions at the start of ne- gotiations last Sept. 1 asked for an increase of 25 cents an hour in wages which averaged an hour. The railroads demanded re- Hospital patient receiving bill for an operation: "No wonder they wore masks in the operating room." (Copr. Gen. Fea. Corp.) ductions in some pay classifica- tions and no change in others. The presidential board was ap pointed when the unions and the rails were unable to reach agree- ment James E. Wolfe, chairman of the Carriers Conference Commit- tee of Western Railways, a spokesman for the railroads, said they feel that the agreement is inflationary and contrary to pub- lic policy as expressed by Presi- dent Kennedy. He estimated increase will cost the railroad industry million a year. The non-operating workers include shopmen, telegraphers and other railroad personnel not actually employed in .operating trains. If similar, increases are agreed upon for the additional op- erating workers not. represented by the 11 unions, the added. cost will reach million, -Wolfe es- timated, freight, rate increases may be necessary to meet the-cost. He said there is a possibility that many .thousand railroad em- ployes who might otherwise be re- tained will lose their jobs "sim- ply because no.long- r have money to pay them."

It's just the taking down pictures, packing the keep- sakes that I dislike she explained. And she admitted that they will be closer to the daugh- ter. House-hunting poses no prob- lem, since Methodist Churches furnish parsonages. Of course, it's potluck, some old, some new, some nicer. Both Mr. and Mrs. Sifford's fathers were Methodist minis- ters.

They may find themselves "heavily involved" in .crises around the globe, Kennedy said. And they should consider them- selves privileged to protect the interests of their country, he added. Responsibility Two-Fold In the at this birthplace of the Army's corps -of officers, Kennedy de- clared military men bear a re- sponsibility to deter wars as well as to fight and win them.. But he added the basic prob- lems pressing on the world can not be solved by military action. Kennedy warmed the hearts of, at least 20 cadets by.issuing or- ders to release them from deten- tion.
