So Horace changed hotels and got to-the Woolen in time for salad and speaking. Mary Hollingsworth of Route 1, Rule, says she has looked long and hard and has yet to find a surname longer than letters. Perhaps, she suggests, the So- cial Security office and its dis- trict manager, Bob Tuley, might know the longest name. Tuley was consulted and he reports no electronic answer. The Social Security's magic brain which counts and sorts names of the nation's workers carries only seven letters- words longer are tossed into the hopper with those which begin with the same letters and there's no quick way to say what sur- name requires the most ink and energy for writing. But Tuley, a fancier of names, did some homework over the week end. He searched the tele- phone book and leafed through Who's Who in America. Barring hyphenated names, HdHngsworth is as long as any he found. it's as long as Schwarzschild. It matchest'Vpn Swearingen. So far the research discloses a maximum 13 letters for a sin- gle surname .Blankenbecter, Brandenberger, Hellinghaussen, Herttenberger and Hollings- worth. Shortest? So far and lo- cally, three letters as in Fry and Fly and Cox. A reader reports a fleeting glimpse of this Little League tableau seen at a vacant lot on northside Abilene: A young woman, obviously a mother enticed from the kitch- en in the late afternoon, her dress protected by an apron and her wrists whitened with flour, standing with one foot raised, baseball in hand all drawn back to pitch one over to a very tiny boy who stood holding aloft a very large baseball bat. Dinner would have to wait. Little League is in season. And Lon Pate, editor of the Haskell Free-Press, tells of the church influence on Little League. Rogers Durham, minister of the town's First Christian Church, was announcing a game and when it came lime to pass the "little red bucket" into which spectators toss funds-to support the Haskell sport he said, "So-and-so will now take the offering for the evening." A burglar the other night rifled an Abilene home wherein live some coin collectors. He ignored some "books" on desk. (They contained coins With a face value of several dollars, collector value of many dollars.) He took some silver dollars he found. (If he hasn't spent them, he might be interested in knowing at least one of them is worth many dollars for it is very rare. If he has spent, it, a val- gable dollar is floating about.) And the burglar scorned a collection Of Confederate bills. (No faith in the Rebel cause. He doesn't think the South will rite again.) tan Supporter OfiwiYklof Oil Operators Over E.Texas AUSTIN Gen. Will Wilson filed a damage suit Tuesday against six operators in the East Texas oil field alleging they plugged wells in violation of a railroad commission'order. The suit brought to more than million damages asked by'the attorney general for alleged 'plug- ging of wells to avoid inclination and directional surveys. Wilson also alleges in the suit that the wells were intentionally or from under the lease in violation of the commission's order. Wilson's first suit was filed May 31 against four men and an oil firm alleging four wells were intentionally deviated and then plugged. This suit asked damages. Thursday, Wilson filed two suits .Defendants in'Tuesday's suit: are: Harry Harrington-Jr., Long- view; Reed H. Allgood, Longview; J. W. Baton, Kilgore; Douglas Godfrey, Kilgore; F. C.

(AP Wirephoto) Ban on Strike Is Extended 10 Days NEW YORK (AP) A federal judge, in a compromise move, ex- :ended Tuesday for 10 days a ban against flight engineers striking Pan American World Airways. The original restraint was laid down last Saturday on a tempo- rary basis. The order signed in Brooklyn federal court by Judge George Rosling had no effect on the en- gineers' strike against Eastern Air Lines, now in its fourth day. Daniel Kornblum, attorney tor ihe flight engineers union, said he will appeal Rosling's extension in an effort to clear the way for a renewed walkout of Pan Ameri- can's 500 engineers. They struck [or three hours Saturday before the original restraining order sent them back to'work. The issue in the engineers' deadlock with both Pan Ameri- can and Eastern is the elimination of one crew position hi jet air- liners. Crews now number four and the engineers union wants the third cockpit seat for its mem- bers when the cutback is made, straddled the issue. He explained that he did so because he needed time in an orderly, extensive hear- ing to take testimony that would aid him in reaching his decision. He ordered both sides back into court Wednesday when he will hear arguments from Pan Amer- can in favor of an antistrike in- iunction. Kornblum protested In vain that Rosling had no jurisdiction to ex- tend the restraining order. Flight packed the courtroom, ntently following the arguments. Pan American and Eastern [light engineers walked out Satur- day, in defiance of the expressed wishes of President Kennedy.

The final motion, made by Dr. John Stevens of Abilene Christian College, contained provisions for labeling the books as to source and content. A reference note, to be placed in the front and back of each volume, will refer the reader to books presenting the American answer to the Soviet material. Only 10 persons other than the press and members of the board attended the meeting. Dr. Irby Fox asked for a re-vote on the original motion made by Dr. Ste- vens and amended by Harold Aus- tin because, he contended, the original motion was passed before discussion from the floor was accepted, and therefore the board members were unable to listen to Wooldridge recommended that; he board vote either to shelve he controversial books alongside looks presenting the American librarian Thelma Andrews the answer, or that the three books contain a note telling the reader the meeting should be accepted as where to find the American ah- a mandate to the library staff swer to the Communist propa- ganda said to be contained in the xioks.
