Moviemakers By ERNEST THOMPSON Got a pet rattlesnake, or skunk with a yen for the bright lights of Hollywood? If so, Robert Hinkle.will be glad to give him a screen test. In fact, Hinkle is in desperate need of domesticated animals of all types, be they snakes, skunks, squirrels, armadillos, porcupines, rabbits, raccoons, coyotes or viverra civettictis. He wants to make them a part of a motion picture to be filmed near Allen at. Butler's Kennels and nearby acreage. Hinkle is producer and direc- tor of the projected film, en- titled "Born Hunters." It will be the story of the life of a bird dog named "King." Hinkle's company is Pondora Pictures Inc. of Hollywood. A party of 20 film-makers are due to arrive in. Ada Monday to begin work on the project. The idea for a story on the birddog arose several months ago. Hinkle started checking around and discovered Butler was known far and wide as one of the nation's best dog trainers. So, he contacted Butler who thought immediately of an Eng- lish setter owned by Ronald McNunn of Sapulpa as a "natural" for the. starring role. "King" was trained by Butler and is a real life field trial champion. Butler will be the featured human character in the show which Hinkle says will be in wide screen and' color. It will be mostly a narrative semi- documentary type film. Hinkle plans to make it in more or less the' same vein as recent Walt Disney shows. The only holdup now is getting enough animals to provide the "extras" for the movie. Hinkle urges anybody who has a do- mesticated "wild" animal to contact Butler at his home in Allen. This isn't a first venture for Pandora Pictures. About three years ago, the company pro- duced "Ole a film that Them proved highly popular around the country. It showed a full week to big audiences in Ada. Hinkle produced and directed that first film which told the story of a mongrel called "Rex" whose main forte was destroy- ing rattlesnakes. In fact, he did away with -15 of the diamond- backs in one sequence, thus saving the life of young hero Billy Hughes. "Born Hunters" will tell the story of a puppy who rises to national .fame as a field trial champion. The film will trace the dog's life through the puppy stage, his intensiye training and eventual championship. Hinkle is no stranger to motion pictures. Aside from several years as a director and pro- ducer, the young Californian has acted in 40 television shows and 22 motion pictures. In fact, he appeared two weeks ago in "Gunsmoke" and has been a part of several other shows, including "Wells (Continued on Page'Two) Adenauer Steps Down Next Fall BONN. Germany cellor Konrad Adenauer will re- tire from office next fall, the par- liamentary floor leader of his Christian Democratic party an- nounced today. .Heinrich von Brentano said the chancellor, who will be 87 in Jan- uary, made the announcement at a meeting of party executives Thursday night. Brentano also told a meeting of the party's members in parlia- ment the party executives had re- jected a coalitwn government with the opposition Socialists._A new coalition with the Conserva-" tive Free Democrats, who quit the government over the Spiegel af- fair several weeks ago, was prac- tically assured. Adenauer's impending retire- ment did not particularly surprise West German politicians. He has been under pressure for some time from his own party to re- linquish the government reins to a. younger man. He has been chan- cellor for 13 years, since the West German Republic was inaugu- rated. Last year, after his party lost its .parliamentary majority and had to form a coalition with the Free Democrats, Adenauer said U. S.

American intelligence sources estimate there are Soviet troops in Cuba. Many were assigned to install and man the offensive weapons. The Pentagon said Thursday Navy patrol planes had counted 42 bombers aboard Soviet ships outbound from Cuba. This is the Soviets, in Cuba somewhat more than American 'experts had estimated. This 'apparently completes. removal of Soviet offensive weap- ons from Cuba. Nearly a month ago; the U.S. Navy counted 42 Soviet missiles on their, way out.

The Soviet Union, the authorities said, is expected to pull the men out It was understood Premier Khrushchev informed President said to have been used to protect the missile site positions and to man the estimated two dozen anti- aircraft missile installations that U.S. experts believe the Soviets set up to defend their offensive weapons'complex.
