Abilene Reporter-News, The (Newspaper) - August 27, 1962, Abilene, Texas gflbflene WITHOUT OR WITH OFFENSE TO FRIENDS OR FOES WE SKETCH YOUR WORLD EXACTLY AS IT Byron 82ND YEAR, NO. 72 PAGE Last Thursday a former Baird resident. Doyle Welch, and his Wife, Melba, piled their two sons into a tiny, well-worn car in Fort Worth and headed for Abi- lene and McMurry College. It was a hurry up trip. Doyle had worked the day shift as a train dispatcher for Texas and Pacific Railway and he had to get back in time to go to work early Friday. The quick run from a job to some college was more or less routine. But the reason for this one was, happily different. It was Doyle's 29th birthday and he came to Abilene to re- ceive his bachelor's degree from MeMurry. For four years Doyle has sandwiched college classes and shifts of jobs. He attended, in all, seven dif- ferent colleges. He commuted all the way. And, while he was getting his degree, his wife. Melba. attended college, too. She was graduated last August. Back in 1951 Doyle, 17, of Santo, and Melba. 16. of Lipan. decided on marriage instead of college. Doyle went to work for the working variously at Colo- rado City, Monahans, Pyote, Big Spring, and Santo. Always they wanted to con- tinue education. And back in Santo they decided to try it. "I made up my mind on the job one morning, went home that afternoon and told Doyle says. "When she heard about it she said, 'Well, I'm go- ing, so that's how it was." They started at Tarlcton State College in Stephenville. From the summer of 1958 through the spring of 1959 they drove, 32 miles to college, 32 miles back to home and work. In the summer of '59 they switched to Weatherford Col- lege. That was only 31 miles away. And they took cor- respondence work from North Texas State. In cany 1960 the Welches moved to Baird. Twenty two miles from Abilene. They settled down to real schooling, to and from McMurry. t Doyle can't estimate the num- ber of miles which went into his degree. It must approach 45.000. He wore out a 1956 Oldsmo- bilc and a 1958 Rambler Met- tropolitan in the process. And three sets of tires in a single summer. Car expenses soared as high as monthly. The car which brought him to get his degree had a banged-up fide. The "injury" is two years old, Doyle said. Repair money has gone into tuition. Welch ligures his and his wife's education has cost about Baby-sitting has taken many of the dollars. (Sons arc Gary and Jackie, now 9 and 5.) To help on expenses Doyle referees basketball games 128 last year. He has also found time to serve as master of his Masonic lodge. And the family lakes part in Baptist church work. The Welches moved to Fort Worth in June. He lacked nine semester hours so he com- muted to Arlington State and dropped in at TCU. The seventh college he attended llaidin- Simmons for one course. Mrs. Welch will teach in Denver Avenue Elementary School in Fort Worth this fall. Doyle is going to catch up on his sleep and on the chores at home and work for He has his degree. And was it worth it? "I'd do it again in a min- he said on graduation. ABILENE, TEXAS, MONDAY MORNING 3Av 3100 RTEEN PAGES IN ONE SECTION Aisnciated Preu (ft) LITTLE MISS MYSTERY Mrs. Lillian C. Oachs, 37, of New Ulm, Minn., cuddles "Little Miss Mys- whom she claims is her daughter, Carri Caye, who was taken by her ex-husband in January, 1961. The little girl was abandoned in downtown Indianap- olis, Ind., last Monday. Mrs. Oachs said she saw a newspaper photograph of the child and immediately knew her search was over. Authorities said the little girl showed no signs of recognizing Mrs. Oachs and that footprints from birth records will be compared to determine if she is really Carri Caye.

(AP) countdown was under way Sunday night on the Atlas-Agena rocket scheduled to launch a Mariner 2 spacecraft toward Venus early Monday. The spacecraft is ticketed for a 182-million mile trip across inter- ilanetary space to probe mys- eries of the cloud-veiled planet. An attempt to launch the rocket early Sunday was postponed be- cause of a short circuit in the electrical section of the second stage. The trouble was corrected and he countdown proceeded smooth- y Sunday night. Barring additional troubles, the :oo-foot tall rocket was scheduled o blast off some time in a three- hour period after midnight to start Mariner 2 on its extended rip across interplanetary space. If all goes as planned, the 447- wund gold and silver-plated ve- licle will pass within miles of Venus on Dec. 14 and make the irst closeup study of the bright planet, whose secrets have puz- zled astronomers and scientists :or centuries. The postponement cuts one day off the transit time to the planet. Mariner 2 is now programmed for a 109-day trip to rendezvous. This is because the earth and Venus have moved slightly closer to each other in their orbits about the sun. The two planets now are about 69 million miles apart and will approach within 36 million miles in mid-December, when Mariner 2 is to intercept Venus. But to reach its goal at the appointed time, the spacecraft must travel a high, arching course totaling nearly 182 million miles because it must be aimed far in front of swiftly moving Venus like a hunt- ir fires at a moving bird. Sec CUBA, Pg. Z-A, Col. 5 Telephone Service To Cuba Disrupted NEW YORK 'API Normal telephone and cable communica- tions between the United States and Cuba were resumed late Sun- day after an unexplained inter- ruption since early this morning, the American Telephone Tele- graph Co. announced. An spokesman said the first call to the Cuban capital went through at about 5 p.m., EOT. Sunday. He said no ex- planation was ottered for the ear- lier break in communications, commenting: "They (the Cubans) just weren't answering." The interruption of normal communications channels devel- oped in a puzzling aftermath of Friday night's shelling of a Ilava na suburban shore area. Efforts to reach the Cuban capital by phone, radio and cable from New York and Miami earlier in the day unavailing. Phone operators in Miami ad- vised that calls could not be com- nIHivl Iw'cnriso of undefined "cir- cumstances beyond our control" and could not indicate when they might get through. New York telephone operators said calls could not be completed "due to conditions in Havana" did not say what the conditions were. The State Department said it had heard of the communications interruption but had no explana- tion for it. Havana Radio newscasts moni- lored at Key West, Fla., gave no hint as to the breakdown in com- munications but did charge the United States with two violations Jf Cuban air space and territorial favorite accusation in Havana's continuing anti-Ameri- can campaign. The newscast said a U.S. plane flew at feet over five towns in Matanzas Province and anoth- er plane maneuvered over a Cu- ban vessel northwest of Maricl in Cuban territorial waters. The an- nouncer said this brought to 142 the number of such air space vio- lations since July 1. The Miramar area of Havana was subjected to a shower of 20- millimeter cannon shells and ma chincgun and rifle bullets shortly before midnight Friday. No one was injured but minor damage was done to a hotel where technicians from Commu- nist bloc countries were staying and to a theater where Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro .sometimes makes television speeches.

(AP Wirephoto via radio from Rome) SAYS LONDON PAPER Don't Take Caroline Water Skiing Again LONDON mass cir- culation tabloid Sunday pictorial las criticized President Kennedy's wife for taking her daughter Caro- ine water skiing. 'Please Mrs. Kennedy, don't do t the paper said Sunday in front page headlines. Most of the paper's front page was devoted to two photographs showing Mrs. Kennedy water ski- ng with 4-year-old Caroline dur- ng their Italian vacation. In one picture Caroline was lolding on to the tow bar and ap- ,ieared to be perched on her moth- er's lap. In the other, Mrs. Ken- nedy was holding Caroline's head above water as she floated low on the skis. "Please, Mrs. Kennedy, look at the face of your little daughter in the picture and don't do it the paper said. "For these pictures of you and Caroline on holiday in Italy will send a cold shiver through mothers everywhere.1' The article added: "Water skiing is hazardous for grown-ups. For a 4-year-old girl it's madness. And when the pre- carious trip ends in a crashing tumble into the sea well, Caroline's face tells its own story." Thousands of Turks Welcome Johnson on Arrival in Ankara ANKARA. Turkey (AP) Lyn- don B. Johnson captured Ankara Sunday with a personal handshak- ng tour of the city that brought .housands of flag-waving Turks nto the streets to cheer the visit- ng U.S. Vice President. More than wildly cheer- ing Turks turned Johnson's of- 'icial motorcade into a traffic jam when crowds surrounded his car. The Turkish afternoon thus took on some of the same zip that had marked his Iranian morning. Iran- ians greeted him so enthusiastic- ally in Tehran's bazaar that po- ice had to beat them back with sticks. After calm airport welcoming ceremonies, Johnson and his wile, Lady Bird, and daughter, Linda, ook 2Vj hours to cover the 16 miles from Ankara Airport to the heart of the city. Time and time igain he left the official motor- cade to talk and shake hands with lundrcds of Turks, from farmers to shopkeepers. "America stands shoulder to shoulder with its ally in NATO, Turkey, whose integrity we have seen tested again and Johnson told them. The crowds, obviously delighted, shouted live Johnson, long live America." Johnson's motorcade departed from the airport in an orderly flow ef vehicles hut by the time it reached the city the motorcade had swelled to a column four lines wide. At the entrance to the city Johnson, accompanied by 78-year- old Premier Ismct Inonu, came: rom an official limousine to the 934 model open Lincoln limou- sine once used by Kemal Ataturk, 'ounder of modern Turkey. The same car was used by President Dwight D. Eisenhower on his visit ,o Turkey in 1959. At almost every major square, Johnson halted his motorcade to mingle with the crowds. Premier Inonu, despite his age and recent .llncss, joined Johnson. Turkish police manning security cars tried without success to con- .rol the enthusiastic crowd sur- rounding Johnson's convoy. The Vice President occasionally inter- vened to ask police not to inter- fere. Johnson will spend four days in Turkey, during which he will visit Central Treaty Organization head- quarters in Ankara and North At- antic Treaty Organization south- eastern European commands at Izmir and Istanbul. He is expect- ed on Monday to sign an agree- ment for the introduction of the NEWS INDEX TV 3 Sporti AmvwiMRft I Comici f 4 10 first American Peace Corps work- ers in Turkey. In Tehran, bazaar workers threw jasmine petals and surged behind frantic imperial guards and police shouting "America Iran" and Welcome Johnson" as the visitor strode into the vaulted bazaar, hub of Iran's commerce. Escort cars and motorcycles of the royal guard were swallowed up by the shoving throng. At one point, Johnson had to stop police from manhandling grizzled bazaar workers trying to shake his hand. Johnson himself appeared strained at times as the crowd pushed in close, but he browsed through shops, shook hundreds of hands, and smiled at the cheers. It was the biggest welcome yet of Johnson's official sec- ond stop on a tour of six nations one of the most hectic re- ceptions ever seen in Tehran. Rough handling by the police was unavoidable in view of the jostling bazaar crowd, the size ol which was impossible to estimate. House Probers Report WASHINGTON (AP) Con- Sessional investigators told the 'entagon Sunday to scrap most f its reserve plan and come up er with something better to cure fail- res exposed by the Berlin crisis imited callup. They reminded Defense Secre- ary Robert S. McNamara also hat the wide powers given him ly Congress can be taken away unless deeds replace "the lipserv- ng pledging cooperation that has jeen given in copious quantities." In a unanimous finding, a House Aimed Services subcom- mittee criticized both past and planned handling of reserves 'laiming it was likely to depress morale and let the program "rock and stumble along" without sig- nificantly increasing military eadiness. The report, issued by chairman Edward Hebert, D-La., after irolonged hearings, coupled crit- cism of Pentagon inflexibility ith committee recommendations or positive Defense Department ction not later than next Feb. 1. Rep. Carl Vinson, D-Ga., veter- in chairman of the parent com- mittee, endorsed the report and ts conclusion that "Neither the Constitution nor our creator has endowed these experts in the Pen- agon with the cloak of infallibili- y" The report said the Army "dem onstrated inability" to select the best prepared men and units for :he small-scale mobilization. It deplored attempts by the Army and the Defense Depart ment to "justify these confusions' with the testified admission that hey "have not prepared contin- :ency plans which contemplate! i partial mobilization." The committee blamed the re- call of numerous older veterans and many "completely unquali ied" younger reservists on the Army's failure to police its re 5ervists and the "inability to iden- ify" the skills of six-month train- ees. The Air National Guard was iraised for "outstanding accom- ilishment" in deploying units ov- erseas. But the committee found "most reprehensible" the Air Force ac- ion in recalling a few individual eservists assigned to organized units, contrary to law. The Navy Reserve was com- mended for making a smaller hough significant contribution to he crisis build-up. The Navy De- lartment, however, was chided or accepting the "increased in- lexibility" of outside controls ov- er its reserve program. The committee encouraged the Army to eliminate obsolete and un- necessary reserve units, but only on the understanding that they would be replaced with outfits rained and equipped to meet modern requirements. The committee opposed aboli- .ion of eight reserve and guard divisions as envisioned in the 'entagon reorganization scheme. The report specifically called on he Defense Department to submit before Feb. 1 draft legislation to permit longer training for six- month servicemen and to tighten the draft liability for short-term rainees who fail to keep up their duties. Otner recommended legislation included establishment of an as- sistant secretary of defense for reserve affairs.

Cow's Milk May Go Out of Style By PKNNIS NEELD LONDON (AP) British scientists have discovered a process for making milk with- out a cow, using pea pods, cabbage leaves and weeds. They hope to open a pilot plant this year with large scalp production following lat- er. The Sicicntista have Rot rid of a greenish color in their man made milk and arc try- ing now to eliminate slight vegetable flavor. If (hey succeed, (he product will go on sale as a powder, in condensed form, and as a liquid. H is expected to com- pete in price with cows' milk. Rasicaily, the raw materials for man made milk arc the same as the food eaten by a cow green leaves. The research which led to the discovery was carried out at the Vegetarian Research Center near Watford in Hert- fordshire. "We can produce lhe milk from almost all said Dr. Frank Wokos, search director. "We have been using carrot tops, outer cabbage leaves and pea pods. "We can also make it from a large number of green plants which arc not edible in themselves. Weeds, nettles and all the hedgerow growths have been used very success- fully." He explained the process: "Roughly it is to mash green leaves in water warmed under controlled conditions until the protein is separated. Vitamins, minerals, vegetable fate and then added. The vitally im- portant vitamin B12 must also be introduced." Dr. Wokes thinks the proc- ess could be valuable in help- ing to solve world food prob- lems. "I think there Is a great fu- ture in this, especially for countries which can grow IIU tie edible vegetation. Then can never be enough milk for all the world's chil- dren or to solve all the tcin deficiencies. But then ii always plenty of greoutuH auch is we are Irvut."
