Operations began early Wednesday morning. (NEWS Stift Water Poachers Sip While Francis Thirsts By JOHN BENNETT Thirsty Francis uncovered an important clue to their dwind- ling water supply this week. "Someone, I won't name any names, hooked water faucets on the said City Council- man Don Burkhe'ad. "They wa- tered a pretty good number of cattle by piping it to their water tanks." He said he found the faucets on the line north of the city. Burkhead noted a few days ago that the town wells should have been supplying enough water for everyone. "It just didn't he said. "So I checked the old line that runs north from the town to the river and found the faucets and lines leading to the water troughs." Recently the city council passed an ordinance stopping residents from watering lawns and gardens. "Most everyone has com- said Burkhead. Several residents complained. however, that they still didn't have enough water. One woman said that her family had to do without baths on some occas- ions. About 1915 a pipe line was run from the river to the town. The river supplied the town's water. Later the line was shut'down after criticism from the- state health department. "Since then the line has been said Burkhead. "But it was no trouble to have water turned in to it from our main tank. All you have to do is turn a valve, where it's still con- nected." Monday Burkhead discovered the valve had been turned to the open position and he checked it out. He said he discovered the faucets on the -line last winter when there was a water short- age. He said a man who had tied on the line promised he would not use it again. the line was installed years ago the people who grant- ed the casements retained water said Burkhead. "But that was only for home use. Now there are new owners living on the land where the line passes and they feel that they have a right to use water for their cattle." The extra faucets have been shut in now and'the town ap- parently is receiving more wa- ter than they, had previously. Early Wednesday morning Dowell Chemical Co. started sand fracturing two wells with- in the town limits. "This should give us enough said Burkhead. Dowell planned to inject about 175 barrels of water with sand into each well. This is a method of forcing freer flow of water. The John L. Lewis Tank Serv- ice, Sasakwa, provided the wa- ter. "Isn't it a heck of a thing when we have to bring in water Officials Report Defense System Probably Is Poor WASHINGTON (AP) Informed U. S. officials be- lieve the Russians still are a long way from achieving a combat ready antimissile- missile system. They are not disputing that the Russians may have developed an antimissile rocket, as Soviet Pre- mier Khrushchev claimed Tues- day. But they stress that develop- ment of such a rocket is only not the most difficult the problem of fashioning a complete antimissile system, with its associated radar and oth- er highly sensitive and complex gear. Can't Spot Decoys One of the biggest the United States has found in its work with, the Nike Zeus anti- missile to perfect ra- dar that can discriminate between oncoming warheads and decoys sent out by. an enemy to confuse and foil the defenses. One official familiar with intel- ligence reports said the Russians have been emplacing large num- bers of fairly powerful radar units, but that this radar is be- lieved able to reach no higher than perhaps feet and ap- parently is part of defenses against manned bombers. Not Operational He said there is no information here to indicate the Russians have developed an operational warhead, as distinguished from a research and test model. It is known that the Russians last September exploded high above earth a nuclear test device that had some of the characteris- tics of an antimissile weapon. President Kennedy, in a broad- cast announcing plans to resume U.S. nuclear testing in the atmosphere, said the Soviet test series last fall was aimed, in part, at "improving their defenses against missiles. Tests Important But, he added: "While appar- ently seeking information which is important in developing an anti- missile defense system, these tests did not, in our judgment, reflect a developed system." The information Kennedy said the Russians appeared to be seek- ing was believed to involve the effects of nuclear' blasts on radar and communications.

In later years he fi- nanced a school for chil- dren of the area. He entered St. Lawrence Uni- versity at Canton. N.Y., on vhich his father had obtained by mortgaging the farm. Young was graduated at the age of 20 in 1884 and then finished a three-year law course at Boston University in two years. He began the practice of law in Boston and became a partner in the firm of Tyler t Young. His law work placed him in con- tact with the engineering firm of Stone Webster. This gave him an intimate knowledge of electric- al development. His ability .at- tracted the attention of General Electric. Young joined General Electric as a member of its legal depart- ment and became its board chair- man in 1922.

An' Indian reply said the Chi- nese were nowhere in the valley when they sent the note and add- gested by Rusk because of the Khrushchev speech. It was rather that the Kennedy administration believes it is im- portant to maintain regular U.S.- Soviet contact on the Berlin dis- pute. The State Department had already issued a statement Tues- day branding Khrushchev's troop proposal as unacceptable. Actually, the Rusk-Dobrynin meeting is considered here to be preliminary to a probable meet- ing in the next week or 10 days between Rusk and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko on the Berlin situation.
